We’re long time fans of the band Bethany. Here’s the premier of their music video!!!!! Wohooo! Gah! Rahk!! On!! 

The wait is over! Oh… the name of the song is called, “Waiting.” Enjoy! 

For more on the band, we have an article about them here

The Bethany Experience

Work will have to wait.

I can’t believe I forgot to write about these guys.

I can still vividly remember the night when I first heard them play. I was holding a half-full bottle of beer and was seated outside (of Outpost), on the couch. It was not a crowded night, which means it was most likely a Wednesday night. Midweek Sessions. Good times.

The world stopped when they started playing. They were so good that I had to go inside and see for myself. And there they were, dimly lit but powerful as ever. My boys.

So when I found out they were playing with A’s band for an event two weeks ago, it was literally impossible for me not to go. Not seeing them play is just plain preposterous! So I went. And as usual, my boys were awesome. I can’t even begin to describe how good they are. The music, the stage presence, their rapport. Everything is so in place. 

Such great talent, these boys. Prolific music-writing paired with raw artistry. They have what most other musicians try to find all their life - creative control.

Listening to their intergalactic-supernova-makes-you-think-why-are-you-so-musically-inept song Waiting is like sipping a strong cup of coffee on a rainy afternoon. It’s so refreshing. So soothing. But bad ass. Super bad ass.

It’s a bad ass song. It’s the kind of song that you wish you wrote. Pretty much like Imagine of John Lennon. Or Baba O'Reilly of The Who.

Okay, maybe not Baba O'Reilly. But you get the picture.

Check out their pure music awesomeness here and here.

Lyrics: While You Sleep

Tonight, I say a prayer
Even when it’s dark
I still watch you sleep
You make me feel this way
I never wanted anymore than this

Your face define my happiness
Your eyes they fill my emptiness

Oh in your arms I’ll stay
I wanna stay forever
Let me stay forever
I’ll whisper in your ear (whisper in your ear)
I love you (I love you)
I love you

Tonight, I’ll make a wish
Your fears will go away
I know you’ll be okay
I will hold your hand
To know that I am always here for you

My tears are falling
I hear you breathing
I close my eyes
I feel complete

Oh in your arms I’ll stay
I wanna stay forever
Let me stay forever
I’ll whisper in your ear (whisper in your ear)
I love you (I love you)
I love you

I’m here…beside you
I’m lost…without you
You make…me stronger
I’ll do…whatever

Oh in your arms I’ll stay
I wanna stay forever
Let me stay forever
I’ll whisper in your ear (whisper in your ear)
I love you (I love you)
I love you

Oh in your arms I’ll stay
I wanna stay forever
Let me stay forever
I’ll whisper in your ear (whisper in your ear)
I love you (I love you)
I love you

Neverending weekend - Say It All Now

I’m stickin’ my ear now on this solid ground
I’m singing this though I may not hear a sound
This I would not forget and I won’t let this pass
But still my heart’s awake; not be quiet and regret it…
I’ll say it all now I’ve already gone this far
and I’ve been hidin’ this right from the start
Did you ever know that I kept you in my heart?
And I’ve been dreamin’ wishin’ on the stars.
That maybe we could be in each other’s arms someday
then I could call you my, my ray of light…

Here I am now writing you this song
without thinkin’ what..
could happen when it’s done
But all I want is for you to be aware
of this feelin’ that has been kept away too long..

This time I’ll make it right…
This time I found light…
There may be a wall between us
but I’ll break it down to show you I care..

I’ll say it all now I’ve already gone this far
and I’ve been hidin’ this right from the start
Did you ever know that I kept you in my heart?
And I’ve been dreamin’ wishin’ on the stars.
That maybe we could be in each other’s arms someday
then I could call you my, my ray of light…
