about

POPS is the first full-length album from Coach Bombay. The tracks are in chronological order of their writing, spanning 2 years.

POPS can be served at parties or in solitude; on the road or in the home; when you're up or down; in small doses or in its entirety. I'm just happy if you listen to it!

Track Name: POPS
Lost your motivation
You don't know why
It will stay on its vacation
If you don't try

Find your destination
And go there tonight
The solution to your problems
Is on the next flight

You play the guitar when you're feeling down
You know it's OK when you hear that sound
You're on a losing streak, we'll turn it round
We'll jump on a plane and get off the ground

In the sky
I can see
Where my mind should be
Far away
I believe
The world is kind to me

Grounded as a penguin
You can't get high
You can never be a hero
If you don't fly

Crowded as a coffin
Your piece of the pie
Gives you access to the axis
Of X, not Y

You play the guitar when you're feeling down
You know it's OK when you hear that sound
You're on a losing streak, we'll turn it round
We'll jump on a plane and get off the ground

In the sky
I can see
Where my mind should be
Far away
I believe
The world is kind to me

In the sky
I can see
Where my mind
Will be free...

With you!
Track Name: Weekend
Ever want to die
Without a reason why
Go to sleep forever
Cos you're really tired

Ever want to be
More than what you see
Looking in the mirror
At your destiny

Let's go
Jump in the deep end
I won't wait for the weekend
Speak up now
Or forever hold your peace

Shout loud
Your call to action
Or you'll get no satisfaction
Chin up my friend
'Cos there's a long way left to go

Ever start a fight
With the girl you like
Just to see the fire
In her perfect eyes

Ever take a stand
To the high command
Only when you realise
That you are the man

Let's go
Jump in the deep end
I won't wait for the weekend
Speak up now
Or forever hold your peace

Shout loud
Your call to action
Or you'll get no satisfaction
Chin up my friend
'Cos there's a long way left to go
Track Name: A Word (feat. Cynthia Sear)
Today nothing's left in bloom
I hate to see you frown
Let's get out of this cold room
And watch the sun go down

But you
Never need to say
A word
Cos I've
Listened to your mind
And heard
And we
Never need to be
Apart
You'll see
That every end can be
A start

How long has is been this way?
So hard to shake it free
How long 'til the brighter day?
And how bright will it be?

Sunshine will be round again
So hold your head up high
Show your colours, spread your wings
And let me see you smile

Aahaaaaaai x 4
Track Name: Radiator
Back and forth it travels through my head
All the day and then into my bed
All the same if I should take it fast
Or take it slow

In the fog is where I breathe the air
In the dark is where I choose to stare
Shine me a light
Show me the way to go

Raise a hand if you should have a say
Point the finger if you won't get paid
Embrace your healthy paranoia
It's okay

All the bullets from the magazine
All the poison from the nicotine
Sit in my gut
Follow me to my dream

You are a radiator
You are an innovator
You are an escalator
You're no administrator
You are a true soul skater
You're more than a spectator
You are a radiator

Back and forth
Through my head
All the day
And in my bed
Through the fog
I breathe the air
In the dark
I choose to stare

Shine a light
Lead the way
Here's your chance
To radiate
In your mind
Where you lay
Paranoia's there to stay
Track Name: Waterfall
Falling in love, where to start
I know you so well, I can see you in the dark
All of the time, you and me
Always

Seven AM, no relief
Every day I could take or I could leave
If there were a choice, I would sleep
All day

Waterfall
No return
Leave it all
With no concern
In the flow
In the spray
Waterfall
Every day

Beautiful girls, I surmise
Are hard on the brain when they're easy on the eyes
You put on a face to disguise
Your pain

Chasing the heartbreak away
Bottle it up, save it for a rainy day
Gathering clouds turn to grey
But no rain

Waterfall
No return
Leave it all
With no concern
In the flow
In the spray
Waterfall
Every day

In my dream
I'm not alone
In my place
I'm far from home
Up in the sky
But then I wake
I'm outta time
In outer space
A waterfall
Has no return
I leave it all
With no concern
In the flow
In the spray
I wanna go
Away
Away
Track Name: Take Off
We all understand that nothing lasts forever
And we know there's such a great big world within a stone's throw
And every now and then we get a little beaten down
That's when we know the time is right to go

So take off
You won't ever look back
You won't ever say I wish that I could take it back

Time is money and I can't afford to spend it all on you
It's funny and I hate to say it's true
These sunny days are few and far between
And I know you'll make money but you'll never make time

So take off
You won't ever look back
You won't ever say I wish that I could take it back

See the sun
In a foreign sky
It's been done
But not by you
So that's your cue
To take off
Take off

Peace of mind is hard to come by
And then you find it passes straight by
And when you die you ask yourself why did I not think to take off

Stare straight out to sea
Think of a place you'd rather be
Go there
And then you'll know you're free
That's how you take off
Track Name: Daydream
I'm lying awake at night
Three things are on my mind
A jet plane, a love song and a girl
The first one I'll take next week
The second is incomplete
Until I can make sense of the third

Morning light
How can I sleep
It's bright now
And the birds sing a song for me
The night is fading
See you in my daydream

Cos now that you're on my mind
It's harder to catch your eye
Can you see that you've become
My daydream baby

And now that I'm on your case
It's all written on my face
You walk by and catch me in
A daydream baby

I'm dying to let you know
But straight from the top of my dome
I can't find the words to make a sound
And all that a have to show
My charm and my bold ego
It falls in a heap when you're around

Just before you cross the street
Be sure to look to the left and the right and see
It's your reality
You're caught in a daydream

Cos now that you're on my mind
It's harder to catch your eye
Can you see that you've become
My daydream baby

And now that I'm on your case
It's all written on my face
You walk by and catch me in
A daydream baby

Cos now that you're on my mind
It's harder to catch your eye
And now that I'm on your case
It's all written on my face

Can you see that you've become my daydream baby
Can you see that you've become my daydream baby
Can you see that you've become my daydream baby
Can you see that you've become my daydream baby
Track Name: Superstar
Old shoes
They've been around the block
Why haven't you
I'm old news
You've heard it all before
Ain't nothing new

I can't reach you
I'm beneath you
I don't know who you are
You don't love me
You're above me
You'll be a superstar

Superstar
Superstar

You live the high life
I hope that you can hear me from up there
Cos I've got some sage advice
Enjoy it while it lasts and while you care

I just want to
Get to know you
Before you go to far
You won't love me
You're above me
You'll be a superstar

Superstar
Superstar

You don't even know my name
I'm one of them
We're all the same
You won't recognise my face
If we are in a crowded place

Superstar
Superstar
Track Name: Love (feat. Elle Young)
Do you love every day
Do you see it coming from a mile away
From above or from within
Either way you feel it when it all sinks in

Love is all around
You can find it anywhere
If you give it all away
Every day to everyone
Love can break the walls down and
Build them from the ground
It's a free and infinte sound
So share it all around

Do you love everyone
Or do you only love your lover and your mum
If you live beneath the sun
Then you should give it love cos there is only one

Love is all around
You can find it anywhere
If you give it all away
Every day to everyone
Love can break the walls down and
Build them from the ground
It's a free and infinte sound
So share it all around

Do you love in secrecy
Do you keep it locked away and hide the key
Are you afraid to set it free
Cos if you don't give it then you won't receive

Love is all around
You can find it anywhere
If you give it all away
Every day to everyone
Love can break the walls down and
Build them from the ground
It's a free and infinte sound
So share it all around
Track Name: Long Life
All these faces looking at you
All these things that you've got to do
All this pressure to be all that you can be

When your long life comes to an end
Your regrets will only depend
On what you really wanted to do
And no one else

So any place you want to go
Anything you want to see
You can make it on your own
Cos you are free

And any day you feel alone
Come on over, lie next to me
I can make you feel at home
And you will see
That you are free

All these dangers clouding your head
All these strangers crowding your bed
If you don't love them, don't pretend
Just be a friend

When your long life comes to an end
Your success will only depend
On the state of your happiness
And nothing else

So any place you want to go
Anything you want to see
You can make it on your own
Cos you are free

And any day you feel alone
Come on over, lie next to me
I can make you feel at home
And you will see
That you are free

My life's work is the smile on your face
And it's a masterpiece
And any day that it's down or gone away
I'm working late next week
Track Name: Something Good
Something good is gonna happen to ya
Something good is gonna happen very soon
Something good is gonna make you feel so right
Right

Something good is gonna happen to ya
Something good is gonna chase away your blues
Something very special's gonna make you smile
Smile

It doesn't matter 'bout yesterday
Just believe me baby when I say

That you don't have to be
Like everybody else
Dealing with the bullshit
Forgetting 'bout yourself
Cos everything you hate
Is gonna wash away from your hood
And be replaced with something good

Each freckle on your skin it is a memory
Of good times you spent in the sunshine
Each wrinkle on your face it is a memory
Of someone sweet who made you smile

It doesn't matter if you're growing old
Cos that's the place where all your woes are sold

And you don't have to be
Like everybody else
Dealing with the bullshit
Forgetting 'bout yourself
Cos everything you hate
Is gonna wash away from your hood
And be replaced with something good
