RACOON - SONGS / LYRICS


THINKING OF YOU


There's a lot of things I didn't do
There's a lot of things I did
There's a million ways to follow through
Only a couple are good I bet
Although I know we'll all be left alone
I can hang my head in shame
But hell, there's a hundred thousand ways
To hide the pain

I don't mean to walk away

Not while others are still standing
I don't want to take your shame
When it's helping you remember
I won't take away your name
Go on and live your life in anger
No, I don't want to die today
Nor will I live my life in pain

Don't mean to be rude or anything

I don't mean to be rude to anyone
Don't mean to be rude or anything
I'm just breaking my head

Thinking of you

Thinking of you
Thinking of you

I don't want to brag away

Using words as sweet as honey
Don't believe when people say
A rich man's joke is always funny
Do you still fight for the things you want
Or have you given up your anger
You're still a dreamer day by day
I guess you shot down your ideals

I don't mean to be rude or anything

I don't mean to be rude to anyone
I don't mean to be rude or anything
I'm just breaking my head Thinking of you

Thinking of you

Thinking of you
Thinking of you
Thinking of you

I don't mean to be rude or anything

I don't mean to be rude to anyone
I don't mean to be rude or anything
I'm just breaking my head

Thinking of you


LOVE YOU MORE


Clouds above go sailing by
I found my meaning in this life
clear white is flying in my eyes,
underneath a blue, blue sky
The waves come rolling in with the tide.
I've been away too long
and everyday I missed you more.
You look like you did before
only prettier.
Everyday I love you more.

All the people rushing by, by, by

looking for meaning in this life
so used up, and blinded by lies,
They're underneath the blue, blue sky
the way they seldom seem to smile
I don't know why.

'Cause I've been away too long

and everyday I missed you more.
You look like you did before,
only prettier.
Everyday I love you more.
I love you more,
everday I love you more,
and more.

Cause I've been away too long

and everyday I missed you more.
You look like you did before,
only prettier.
And everyday I missed you more,
and more and more and more and more.
I've been away too long
and everyday I missed you more
oh you look like you did before
only prettier
everyday I love you more.

I love you more.

Everyday I love you more.



DON'T GIVE UP THE FIGHT



Please don't give up the fight for no reason,
but your own
I never said that the fight would be easy
Because it won't

I will remember you, and all that we have been through

There is no angel, that can be more angel than you
I see you every night when your star is shining bright
And I cry and I smile, I wish you where here, with me

Well, I am so proud to be your father

I'm so proud to be your mum
And I am so proud to be your brother
So may this be your song

Please don't give up the fight for no reason,

but your own
Cause I never said that the fight would be easy
Because it won't

I will come look for you

When this life is through with this body
Before now I still need to life
For we are not alone
And you are not alone
We're at home, loving and waiting
And so afraid

Well I am so proud to be your father

So proud to be your mum
And I'll always be proud to be your brother
So may this be your song

Please don't give up the fight for no reason

Please don't give up the fight for no reason





BEFORE YOU LEAVE


Before you leave
Before you leave me now
Tell me where the hell I am
Before you're taken down
Won't you tell me once again
Before you get the chance
Don't take away my memories
Before you leave me now

Before you leave me now
Tell me where I'm gonna go
If I start walking now
Then the sooner I will know
Before I get the chance
To take it out on you again
Before you leave me now

'Cause your life's been vinegar on ice
Now you're leaving
Just before you say goodbye
Believe me, believe when I
Say that I'll miss you
Please believe when I
Say that I'll miss you

I miss you

Before you leave me now
Tell me you will be alright
That there's not much to say
And all you know is that it's time
Before I lose the chance
To say goodbye to you again
Before you leave me now

I won't ask you to stay anymore
Now you're leaving
But just before you shut the door
Won't you believe me, believe when I
Say that I'll miss you
Please believe when I
Say that I'll miss you
When I say that I'll miss you
I say that I'll miss you

I miss you





BROTHER


It's four o'clock, the rain has stopped
He's into deep, he ran out luck
Nowhere he can go
And his old friends, they left the spot
Because of the little time he's got
Not that they ever warned him though

If you can't give her space

We're afraid it's too late
You got to let her go now
Or we can't help you
Brother

All he thinks, the love is gone

The broken-hearted, they must be strong
You still got us
Well there is this yearning in the stomach
Pain and doubt, 'bout why she done it
And pride that tells him to shut up

If you can't give her space

We're afraid it's too late
You got to let her go now
Or we can't help you
Brother

If you're willing to fight

Then you'll make it all right
You just got to let her go now
Or we can't help you
Brother 








Racoon is a Dutch pop-rock band founded in 1997 in Goes, Zeeland. Bart van der Weide (vocals) and Dennis Huige (guitar) were fed up with the sound of their hardcore rockband Vic’tem and decided to go acoustic. Their first writings resulted in a song called RAPID EYE MOVEMENT . For their first release, a demo called “It’s an Ice Cream Day”, Stefan de Kroon (bass) and Paul Bukkens (drums) completed the band’s line-up.

The band made a breakthrough appearance at the 1999 Noorderslagfestival in Groningen, resulting in lots of record deal offers. Contracted by Sony’s S.M.A.R.T. label, they released their first album TILL MONKEYS FLY  in January 2000. Produced by Michael Schoots, former URBAN DANCE SQUAD  drummer, the album hit the charts receiving nationwide airplay. Both the first single FEEL LIKE FLYING  and the second one, BLUE DAYS, became a 3 FM megahit .  Their festival appearances on Parkpop and Lowlands confirmed their image as a live-act.


Summer 2001 HERE WE GO, STEREO !
was released as their second full-length record. Widely acclaimed, this record was their ticket to play at the Netherlands’s largest festival: Pinkpop.

While working on their third album, Sony ended the record deal. With help from Dutch radio station 3FM and the producer of their first album, they signed a contract with PIAS, to release their 3rd album early 2005. The fresh and mature sound, combined with a more serious approach on songwriting got ANOTHER DAY  a slow start with HAPPY FAMILY .The second single LOVE YOU MORE
hits hard: they claimed 3rd spot on the Dutch Top 40; the album skyrocketed to 6th position in the Album Charts. A succesful club tour during autumn and winter 2005 resulted in the release of their first live DVD called Another Night. And the fans really found their true love back, voting Racoon to be Pinkpop’s Gouden Tip (“Viewers Choice”) for 2006, claiming a spot on the mainstage.

After this clubtour they decided to fulfill a long-lasting dream for the bands vocalist (Bart van der Weide) and went on a theatertour all across Holland, with the adition of a keyboardplayer (Manu van Os) and a re-write of most of the songs to slim them down a bit. They blew away most fans with the awsome sounding back to basics tour filled with emotions and a new track called [track]Close Your Eyes[/track].


After the theatertour Manu went on to join Di-rect for their theatertour. Currently the band is recording a new album
