lyrics

I saw the erosion of my jaw
Over time, as defined by a bone
I was looking lonely, brave and young
For a family, some land and a home

And I have had visions of a time
Where building ships, and busting lips is all I know
Oh I don’t need wealth or flattery
I just want to feel a little loved everywhere I go

You told me once that I was a hero
Well I’m not a hero
But I’ll be bold as bricks for you
All for you
All for you
But you said you needed a mountain
Well I’ll be your mountain
I’ll be your mountain

Don’t want to sink into the ocean
Don’t want to fade into the blue
So I will find myself a mountain
And get over it to you

No strife, I want nothing of your life
But I’ll be blue collar true all the same
I’ve got everything we need
A mortgage and my gorgeous family name

So try and break me, I am a castle
I am a brick wall
I will be bold as bricks for you
All for you,
Awful you
But you said you needed a mountain
Well I’ll be your mountain
I’ll be your mountain

Don’t want to sink into the ocean
Don’t want to fade into the blue
So I will find myself a mountain
And get over it to you

Don’t want to sink in to the ocean
Don’t want to fade into the sea
So I will make myself a mountain
So you cannot get over me

about

The Bawdy Electric Montréal, Québec

The Bawdy Electric make raucous power pop with big, rollicking guitars, fiercely modern hooks, and words as carefully chosen as a first car. They call their sound “Power Pub”, but this is not your Dad's Dad Rock band. They can be mentioned in the same breath as Elvis Costello, The New Pornographers, Roxy Music, or Big Star's “Third”, so long as you take a big enough breath. ... more
