Doo doo doo, doo doo doo, la la la, la la la la. The new hit single from Steve Goldberg and the Arch Enemies. A chamber-pop meditation on time, aging, and death.

The more I tell my story
the less it feels like mine
just something that happened to someone
in a strange and ancient time

And how I wish the features
of my youth could be preserved
but they say that a man at fifty
has the face that he deserves

So put your camera down
it cannot save us now
cause a photograph is a lie
and we'll never be as young as we are tonight

They'll write a book about me
and it won't be very long
it'll say "He liked women and drinking.
He was here and now he's gone."

And I don't find it morbid
It doesn't make me cry
Because we wouldn't be nearly so lovely
if we didn't have to die

And hey there shutterbug
won't you give me some love?
cause there's none streaming down
from above

Nice mix of instruments! How many people are involved here?

This would fit in with some of the British Invasion stuff. I like it.

Great song as well. I just listened to the one you posted after this one, and they both sound great. I'm glad to see you back posting.

Thanks! The band has 5 members now. I'm on guitar/vocals, we have a keyboard/trumpet guy, a bass/trombone/vocals guy, a violinist, and a drummer/vocalist. I did all the singing on these tracks though.

We'll be playing this song at SXSW tonight; hopefully people take pictures in spite of us.

i've decided to just download all of your songs instead of favoriting them all.
