about

Caroline McLavy Leicester, UK

Coming from the dirty end of Rock ‘n’ Roll; owning band rehearsal rooms in Leicester UK for a number of years, Caroline McLavy emerged with an electro pop album quite possibly as polar opposite to her day job as it can musically get! But as it goes ‘Electrostatic’ has plenty of hard-core grinding bass lines and provocative lyrics so maybe there’s more influence there than she cares to admit. ... more

Track Name: Constant Pain
Dark glasses, you gotta watch your face
Their hot flashes, our contradictive trace
We don’t follow, where we have been
You’re so hollow, you’re not the man I believed

Stay away and slowen your pace,
You chose the way, you gotta watch your face
Stay away you are a disgrace,
It doesn’t change the way you state your case

And we both
Tried to plead insane
While in constant pain
While in constant pain
Whilst in constant pain

I will see you, see you goodbye
There’s no truth, since you chose to lie
You’re always lying, lying next to me
It’s transpiring as the way you deceive

Stay away and slowen your pace,
You chose the way, you gotta watch your face
Stay away you are a disgrace,
It doesn’t change the way you state your case

And we both
Tried to plead insane
While in constant pain
While in constant pain
Whilst in constant pain

You don’t wanna, you just can’t talk about
We’ve been thinking, to clear the doubt
I’ve felt troubled, as to how to proceed
But it’s finished, there’s nowhere it’ll lead

Stay away and slowen your pace,
You chose the way, you gotta watch your face
Stay away you are a disgrace,
It doesn’t change the way you state your case

And we both
Tried to plead insane
While in constant pain
While in constant pain
Whilst in constant pain
Track Name: You Know
When you stepped…….
When you stepped……
When you stepped…….
When you stepped……
When you stepped out onto the dance floor for the first time
Never been here before
And watched as the bodies drive to the music
Gonna have some fun
You felt the pieces click in your mind
Taken you so long
The air is hot and the time is right
To find what you’re searching for

You Know, You Know, You Know
That you need it
You Know, You Know, You Know
You gotta turn it on
You Know, You Know, You Know
That you feel it
You Know, You Know, You Know, You Know
You want more

Everybodies acting of the same mind
Heared it all before
Didn’t take long to plug into the main line
Feel it coming on
Don’t wonder if this feeling is right
Too good to be wrong
Work by day and dance by night
To have what you want and more

You Know, You Know, You Know
That you need it
You Know, You Know, You Know
You gotta turn it on
You Know, You Know, You Know
That you feel it
You Know, You Know, You Know, You Know
You want more

When you stepped out onto the dance floor for the first time
Never been here before
And watched as the bodies drive to the music
Gonna have some fun
You felt the pieces click in your mind
Taken you so long
The air is hot and the time is right
To find what you’re searching for

You Know, You Know, You Know
That you need it
You Know, You Know, You Know
You gotta turn it on
You Know, You Know, You Know
That you feel it
You Know, You Know, You Know, You Know
You want more

The feeling started to emerge on the inside
Started to explore
Until it took control of your world on the outside
Until it wanted more
You find it hard to try and define
Rolled up into one
Felt so good to lose your mind
And love what you’re living for
You Know, You Know, You Know
That you need it
You Know, You Know, You Know
You gotta turn it on
You Know, You Know, You Know
That you feel it
You Know, You Know, You Know, You Know
You want more
Track Name: This is Not my Life
My body’s aching and my eyes strain to see
All I’m wanting some compatibility
I wake up and find I’m in someone else hell
You should know by now,
I’ve seen you here as well

My body’s shaking and the light hurts my eyes
All I’m asking for is a little comprise
I hurt myself every other day
My friends just look at me
And then look the other way

This is not my life
I’m in another world
There never was a dream
I have to where to go

This is not my life
I’m in another world
There never was a dream
I have to where to go

The day is waking and yet I feel so tired
The light is seeping into everywhere I hide
I am horrified by everything I see
And it stays with me, it leaks into my dreams

This is not my life
I’m in another world
There never was a dream
I have to where to go

This is not my life
I’m in another world
There never was a dream
I have to where to go

I am the manifest of everything I’ve thought
Of which the ownership
Decidedly it haunts
I try to separate from all I cannot bear
But what is left I find
Is far to less to care

So many questions are running through your head
Too much love or not enough
Do you wish that you were dead?

This is not my life
I’m in another world
There never was a dream
I have to place to go

This is not my life
I’m in another world
There never was a dream
I have to place to go
Track Name: Miss Perfect
Why are you so glum? Why are you so sad?
Look at you, you’re beautiful miss if I had what you had
I wouldn’t waste it like you – waste it like you do

You’re always hanging around
Trying to find some life to waste
Accompanied by a frown
Displaced on that perfect face – you
Paint on your mood each day
It signals us to go away
What you lack in faith
Is made up with disgrace

Why are you so dumb? Why are you so mad?
Look at you, you’re beautiful miss if I had what you had
I wouldn’t waste it like you – waste it like you do

Confidence or ignorance
What is it about you-
Make decisions based on facts
You weren’t even exposed to

Your tip toeing around
Like a ghost that haunts this place
You’re elocution’s sound
But there is nothing left inside but space – you
Live your life in a daze
The rest of us look through red haze
You’re just a little girl
The centre of your world

Why are you so numb? Why aren’t you just glad?
Look at you, you’re beautiful miss if I had what you had
I wouldn’t waste it like you – waste it like you do

I wouldn’t waste it
I wouldn’t waste it like you
Waste it like you do
Track Name: Signals
What are you trying to say
When you’re looking at me and then turning away
Do you think that I don’t know
Or I can’t see – blatantly
What is clear to me

Then you look through me like I’m not there
So I’m confused am I supposed to care?

What do the signals mean?
And your big brown eyes
What do the signals mean?
Look so amusing to me
What do the signals mean?
I look up and watch the shutters come down
What do the signals mean?
What do you think that it means
What do the signals mean?

You took me dancing last night with a couple of friends
And lead me astray
You showed me all your moves and smiled at me
Tentatively, so seductively

Then you bought me a drink and left the room
And I don’t understand why to left so soon

What do the signals say?
And your big blue eyes
What do the signals say?
Look so bemusing to me
What do the signals say?
I look up and watch the shutters come down
What do the signals say?
What do you think that it means
What do the signals say?

I don’t wanna say what’s behind my eyes
In case you’re telling lies
I have to need to be the inflictee
Just in case my offer is denied

I’m used to taking risks and I know what that means
So come on make your move and see what it brings

What do the signals mean?
And your big brown eyes
What do the signals mean?
Look so bemusing to me
What do the signals mean?
I look up and watch the shutters come down
What do the signals mean?
What do you think that it means
What do the signals mean?
Is there a reason why
What do the signals mean?
Do you see what I see
What do the signals mean?
You paint the picture of the storey somehow
What do the signals mean?
What do you think that it means
What do the signals mean?
Track Name: UK3QC1300007 - Don't Wanna
The moment I opened my eyes it hit me
We went out to party on your birthday
Everyone left an hour before us
So I said why don’t you stay over?

And now my head is in pain
And I’m feeling ashamed
Cause I made a mistake
A pretty big mistake

I creep downstairs hoping not to wake you
Coming to terms
But what will you do?
Could it be as bad as I dread to remember?

I don’t wanna wake you cause you’re out of the door the minute I do
I don’t wanna shake you cause I haven’t been totally honest with you

I just want to watch you sleeping on my settee
Maybe I could make some tea or coffee
Maybe I could watch the news like normal
And when you wake you’ll forget I kissed you

And then you moved your head
And I ran to bed
Now I regret
I really really regret

But you could wake up really hung over
Everything’s a blur and we can start over
I could make toast and we could
And could sit by the window

I don’t wanna wake you cause you’re out of the door the minute I do
I don’t wanna shake you cause I haven’t been totally honest with you

Maybe I should leave a note that says I’ve had to go to work
I hope everything is alright
I can’t remember a thing from last night
Help yourself to anything you want
And post the key through the door when you’re done
Or just
Call me when you’re ready, I am sorry
Really really sorry

I don’t wanna wake you cause you’re out of the door the minute I do
I don’t wanna shake you cause I haven’t been totally honest with you
Track Name: I never thought (album version)
As darkness closes around
And the sun drains away
My hopes drag along the ground
With the memories of today

I didn’t want it to end
I never thought I’d see the day
Better to love and never and lost
I’m choosing it this way,

I never thought I’d be hurting so much in one place at one time
I never knew your empty love would stay forever on my mind
I never dreamt the pain was so bad I could let out and cry
You hit me so hard I wanna break down and die

What did I do that was so wrong you never told me there was a problem
Give me somewhere to start from because I cannot read your mind

I cannot close the book
And I cannot walk away
I can’t believe the way you looked at me
Would be my last memory

I’m fighting back the tears
And trying to find the words to say
If you believed in what we had
You wouldn’t be treating me this way

I never thought I’d be hurting so much in one place at one time
I never knew your empty love would stay forever on my mind
I never dreamt the pain was so bad I could let out and cry
You hit me so hard I wanna break down and die

I never thought I’d be hurting so much in one place at one time
I never knew I never thought Id be hurting so much in one place at one time
I never know your empty love would stay forever on my mind
I never dreamt the pain was so bad I could let out and cry
You hit me so hard I wanna break down and die
I never thought Id be hurting so much in one place at one time
I never know your empty love would stay forever on my mind
I never dreamt the pain was so bad I could let out and cry
You hit me so hard I wanna break down and die
I’d ever have to say
I never dreamt the pain was so bad why did you change your mind
Why did you go away?
Track Name: Where did I go wrong? (album version)
The notion stood despondently
in the form of a shadowed man
They ask of me, casually
So to laugh off irony as it stands
In a long straight line direct to me
Ho I, I knew them all
They told me lies subjectively
Because they never knew me at all

And I held their gaze,
Until they glazed
No I didn’t make the grade
It all seems like a waste of space

Was it something I said, Was it something I did
Did I wake up one day and no longer fit it
Did I act too weak or did I come on too strong?
Where did I go Wrong?

Was it something missed, was it something I’d seen
Did I go out all night when I should have stayed in?
Did I push you away when I should have held on?
Where did I go wrong

I handle things obsessively,
It’s just the way I am
Pending plans indefinitely
Then I’ll burn around where I stand
Until there’s nothing left in spite of me
And that’s when I fall
And I know subconsciously,
We’ve been here many times before

Was it something I said, Was it something I did
Did I wake up one day and no longer fit it
Did I act too weak or did I come on too strong?
Where did I go Wrong?

Was it something I tried, was it something It didn’t?
Did I get my own way when I should have gave in?
Did I talk to quick or did I go on too long?
Where did I go Wrong?

At first they seemed quite into me
and I amuse them where I can
The words dry up eventually,
They react by taking no ground,
Cause they wont put into what they cannot see,
And that’s a shame all round
As I would give incessantly
If only they would make a sound

Was it something I said, Was it something I did
Did I wake up one day and no longer fit it
Did I act too weak or did I come on too strong?
Where did I go Wrong?

Was it something missed, was it something I’d seen
Did I go out all night when I should have stayed in?
Did I push you away when I should have held on?
Where did I go Wrong?
Track Name: The calm before the storm
The calm before the storm
We all know that it’s coming
We’ve seen it all before
And still we keep ignoring

The calm before the storm
Its creeping and its crawling
They’ll soon be at the door
Its hard to keep enduring

The calm before the storm
We’re all in this together
They’re always wanting more
They’re always wanting better

So why not meet us in the middle and give us a little drizzle
Come give us some we might not makes mistakes

Cause when it rains
All you can do is stand and take the blame
For this circumstance
And when it rains, I am not ashamed
When dealt my hand
Can you explain we should remain?

All we want now is the sun
To feel secure in what we’ve done
Just a chance to feel at ease
To close our eyes and breathe

Ho please meet us in the middle and give us a little drizzle
Come give us some we might not make mistakes

Cause when it rains
All you can do is stand and take the blame
For this circumstance
And when it rains, I am not ashamed
When dealt my hand
Can you explain we should remain?

Cause when it rains
All you can do is stand and take the blame
For this circumstance
And when it rains, I am not ashamed
When dealt my hand
Can you explain we should remain?

Why not meet us in the middle and find something more reasonable
Can’t pay one can’t pay all don’t stop them knocking at the door
Every day we wait for the fight I, just wanna sleep at night
Soon they’ll impose with their restrain it’s time for us to play the game
And justify why, we should remain

Cause when it rains
All you can do is stand and take the blame
For this circumstance
And when it rains, I am not ashamed
When dealt my hand
Can you explain, can you explain?
