______________________________________________ oh please baby don't drink tonight i’m tired of this circus and I don’t want to fight your sister’s on the phone with a broken heart the world is a mess, I don’t know where to start it's a hard thing being optimistic in a world so cruel waiting to grow up and finish school and do what you wanna do and go where you wanna go just be patient and the tide will turn remember your childhood as a lesson learned teach your children to be proud and sound respect yourself keep your feet on the ground it's a hard thing predicting our future when we're cool and young then remember what we did that was wrong going through therapy deciding who's advice you should take will Someone cover your fall? it's a hard thing being optimistic in a world so cruel waiting to grow up and finish school and do what you wanna do and go where you wanna go will someone cover your fall

______________________________________________ if I returned to France would I remember what to say and would you let me in and what you pretend that it was nothing so I never returned your calls i wrote you letters that said nothing at all i didn't know how to feel i didn't know what was real has it been too long too far gone if I did you wrong what would you say would you turn away has your heart moved on was it all about the flesh when you hear my name do you detest or do you blush and smile like a taste of cheap old wine maybe that day will come we might be wiser but not so young will I know how to feel will I know if it was real has it been too long too far gone if I did you wrong what would you say would you turn away has your heart moved on

about

* * These tracks will be remixed and remastered for the High Tea album that will be released on 11 July 2014 * *

The Britannicas are 21st century men and pioneers of trans-continental recording; using modern technology to deliver old school, classic pop music.

Herb Eimerman (solo, Nerk Twins - USA), Magnus Karlsson (happydeadmen, the Charade - SWEDEN) and Joe Algeri (Jack & the Beanstalk, the JAC – AUSTRALIA) are separated by thousands of miles of ocean but they can still harmonise in the auto-tune-free glory days of yesteryear.
