Campfire social Llangollen, UK

Llangollen / North Wales -based 5 piece, Campfire Social, are a refuge from the wild woods all around. Their incandescent, melodic songs take the intimate heartbreak of Elliott Smith and embellish with golden harmonies borrowed from The Beach Boys. At times getting you up off your chairs in a passionate rage, at others just to dance but always filled with hope. ... more

Track Name: Ishq
A plastic glass in a sunburnt hand
A voice that's louder than a marching band
But I'm still a stranger in a foreign land
I'm a memory that's fading fast
A lover you once had

Your minds an ocean I'm a grain of sand
We'll brave the water just to reach the land
And for all the insignificance I'd hold your hand
The past is the past you'll find
We're all floating past it

You can't trust what I'm saying
If it was true I'd be singing it
Without the melody the meaning to these words would they still exist
It's an existential question
I'm just one hand clapping
I'm a tree falling in the woods
But with no one around to hear
I'd still say this
I'm a memory that's fading fast
But I still exist

The patterns, the shapes, the letters they form the truth when I'm singing this
Track Name: I've Got Two (You Can Have One Of Mine)
Hold you soul tight
keep it close tonight
there's plenty of time to follow your heart
I'll help shield your eyes
we'll watch the birds on flight
we clipped their wings
so they won't get too far

forget your precious feelings they're changing like the reasons you stay at home
and when did you stop believing I'm starting to think you'd rather be alone
and that's no way to go

you know your best is not enough I'm sure that someone's told you this before
they pulled the rug from under us
took from the rich still hide it from the poor
and that's no way to go

I've got two you can have one of mine
Ill be there when you need me I'll never ask why
I'll be your friend and I thank you for being mine too

oh God my God my head hurts
trying to do what's right
it's getting harder to see the wood for the trees
but I'll try
Track Name: Playwright
You started a fire and it burned through the town and took everything
you shouted so loud that it burst through the clouds
but you said nothing at all
just hollow words
just enough to wake the birds
with the sound of a lie

outside the weather starts to change
you put your coat on boy and carry on
just shield yourself from the rain
just like you shield yourself from everything
oh just how wonderful

you wrote from the edge until the fold
you've had a whole long life of letting go
and each player in each well constructed epic
is plagued by the same epidemic
you're getting old

now all of this will end
and we'll say goodbye to most of our friends

the curtains closing
Track Name: Wendy
Wendy my beloved
as below above it
we'll make it up as we go along
from the bottom to the summit
and from the top we'll plummet
we'll fall for miles without admitting we were wrong

so clear out all your windowsills and open all your doors
and chase life like a child outside

Wendy my beloved
when this old planets flooded
and all the green land's the colour of the sky
we'll have to learn to swim it
and hold on to the trees
and when each morning comes I'll still greet it with a smile

so drown out all the city noise and live out in the wild
and chase life like a child outside

I gave myself an awful fright
you stood there at my door last night
a shadow stands in front of me asks is this who you want to be
well I hold on to the past so tight
it shows in every song I write
well is this who you want to be
are you a ghost or a memory
