about

Hard Soul Albany, New York

Upstate New York's own Hard Soul made their debut in late 2011, showcasing their own take of what songwriter-driven rock n’ roll music should be all about. Channeling the guitar & lyrical stylings of Thin Lizzy, the hooks of The Beatles, the emotion of Oasis, and the sheer volume and groove of Led Zeppelin, the band is bringing back classic rock with a modern-flare. ... more

Track Name: The Sweetest Heart
The sweetest heart
A pulse that makes
The rocky ground below us
Move and shake and shift
If I could only feel it
After the waves had gone

In your sweetest heart
It's the gentlest beat
An infectious rhythm
Moves my hands and my feet
Carries me out to meet you
I hope the moment hasn't come and gone

Oh please help me understand
Why I'm not the only one for you

Of all the things
That you gave to me
This burden I take so seriously
Through the valleys across this place

We were the two
Who only had to
Share the space
The pace was set to keep us close
Not sprinting toward the finish line

Oh please help me understand
Why I'm not the only one for you
(Oh please)
I hope you get what's coming to you
Coming to you
Oh please help me understand
Why I'm not the only one for you
(Oh please)

For you! For you!
For you! For you!

SOLO - SALKA

The sweetest heart
A pulse that makes
The rocky ground below us
Move and shake and shift
If I could only feel it
After the waves had gone

In your sweetest heart
It's the gentlest beat
An infectious rhythm
Moves my hands and my feet
Carries me out to meet you
I hope the moment hasn't come and gone

Oh please help me understand
Why I'm not the only one for you
I hope you know
There was room to grow

Oh please help me understand
Why I'm not the only one for you
I hope you get what's coming to you
Coming to you
Oh please
Oh darlin' please
I'm beggin' you down on my knees
Oh please
I'm down on my knees
I'm beggin' you darlin' please

The sweetest heart
A pulse that makes
The rocky ground below us
Move and shake and shift
If I could only feel it
After the waves had gone
Track Name: It's All Gone Wrong
Spending nights in cinemas
Facing the same direction
While paying no attention to
All the space that's growing
In between

Hours worth of salutations
Conversations fill the pages
All amounts to one goodbye

I say goodbye to yesterdays
I say goodbye to you

It's all gone wrong
It's all gone wrong

SOLO - SALKA

I'm getting high
While you're digging holes
My chosen path don't make much sense
And my destination
Wasn't ever quite that really clear
The moon and stars above me
Guide me on my way from home
Face the sun, it's shining bright

And I say my goodbyes to yesterdays
And I say my goodbyes to you

It's all gone wrong
It's all gone wrong
And so I wrote this song
Yes it's all gone wrong

My soul has lost control
Of what I swore it would keep
Chose to sing the melodies
Or barely even breathe
All of the waiting
It's raising
Frustration
The cost of feeling heartache is free

It's all gone wrong
It's all gone wrong
Yes, it's all gone wrong
It's all gone wrong

SOLO - SALKA / THOMPSON

I say goodbye to yesterdays
(It's all gone wrong)
I say goodbye to yesterdays
(It's all gone wrong) ...
Track Name: Fairer Shores
Pure joy
Connected
The two of us
The math computes
Reset the programming
You're mine

No need
For examples
These words speak only truth
You're all that I wanted
For all time

It's an honor to be here today
To take you as my equal
Yeah
It's an honor to be here today
To say I take you as my equal
As we sail to fairer shores

Reset the programming
Bound together
Yet unrestrained
Depart from the harbor
Bon voyage

I'm sure
You remember
The first reaction that
Lit the fuse
That first attraction
The fire

It's an honor to be here today
To take you as my equal
As we sail to fairer shores
It's an honor to be here today
To say I take you as my equal
As we sail to fairer shores

Standing before us
Side by side
From this point on
The light with be from her smile
Be from her smile
Walk together mile by mile
He'll carry you for miles

SOLO - SALKA

It's an honor to be here today
To take you as my equal
Yeah
It's an honor to be here today
To say I take you as my equal
As we sail to fairer shores
Track Name: Have to Be A Miracle
Where is my one and only?
Lonely midnight drives
Through all the places
I wish I could call home

I'd take a miracle of science
Logistical defiance
One night of kindness
In this unkind world

And it'd have to be a miracle
To exist in this place
The world's not fair
She comes and goes
She came and went
Now I'm spending all my time
Thinking
Thinking how

I was feeling young and lonely
Till I saw your face
Now I yearn to spend my days
Doing the same

It was a miracle of timing
Planetary realigning
One night of kindness
In this unkind world

And it'd have to be a miracle
To exist in this place
The world's not fair
She comes and goes
She came and went
Now I'm spending all my time
Thinking
Thinking how
It'd have to be a miracle
To exist in this place
The world's not fair
She comes and goes
She came and went
Now I'm spending all my time
Thinking

Think about the things I'm doing wrong
And all the things we never begun
Think about the world and feel so small
It'd have to be a miracle

Where is my one and only?
Lonely midnight drives
Through all the places
I wish I could call home

And it'd have to be a miracle
To exist in this place
The world's not fair
She comes and goes
She came and went
Now I'm spending all my time
Thinking
Thinking how
It'd have to be a miracle
It'd have to be a miracle
It'd have to be a miracle
It'd have to be a miracle

SOLO - SALKA

I was feeling young and lonely
Till I saw your face
Now I yearn to spend my days
Doing the same
