about

As the band's first formal release, we feel Hangman wholly represents what we hope to achieve as Room16. Recorded at the beginning of 2011 between a flurry of gigs, this single captures the experiences we've had playing together for the last three years and our excitement for the year ahead. Thank you for listening!

Track Name: Hangman
Close your eyes and all I see is your dark eyes gleaming up at me.
Something special or so you say till you turned your back and walked away

I'm waiting on someone to fill in all these blanks
Spaces keeping me down, keeping me hang around
To take all of these un-spelt letters and make something whole
But some words only you know

What did you mean to me, proclaiming that I was free
When you lay me down in my tears to drown
What did you mean to me proclaiming that I was free

Everybody stand back, laugh at me
And take a look at all I can be

Close your eyes and all I see is your dark eyes gleaming up at me.
Something special or so you say till you turned your back and walked away

These guessing games you play are a mystery to me
And everything you try and discover is just to cover up your controversy

What did you mean to me, proclaiming that I was free
When you lay me down in my tears to drown
What did you mean to me proclaiming that I was free

Now everybody just take a damn second look
And take a leaf out of my written book
Everybody stand back, laugh at me
And take a look at all I can be
Now everybody just take a damn second look
And take a leaf out of my written book

I'm wait for your love, I'm waiting for your love
So come and cut me down
I'm wait for your love, I'm waiting for your love
So come and cut me down
Track Name: Nightlife
Saturday night and I'm wading into town
I'm going to a gig of a friend I know
I don't care about the nu metal nobodies playing
Cause I've got no where else to go

This is my home this where I belong
And there's no place I'd rather be
Even if I'd be doing a million other things
This is the night life for me

And I know that somewhere down the road
There'll be local rebels in hand
They'll be ramming it in like there 'aint no tomorrow
Waking up, don't even understant

Lose yourself in a familiar cast of mirrors
Try to reflect differently
Even if I'd be doing a million other things
This is the night life for me

I'm sorry, hey babe, I think it's time to go
You're past your expiry date, off the shelves now take a stroll
And as you wander aimlessly through
narrow streets, places you've never been
You're happy go lucky
And everything just goes your way

This whole night life of mine's such a pain
As I dine with fortune and fame
Cause this whole night life's got all to gain
Cause all they ponces are just to tame
