about

salt Edinburgh, UK

SALT have an emotional intensity using a wide variety of influences. Powerful, broody, eclectic and dark. Like Nick Cave meets the Fall meets the Pixies. Loud messy guitars, brooding bass and exhilarating drums backup an emotional eclectic vocal that entices you into the fairytale on fire that is SALT.

Featuring members from the late 80s’ “The Ruby Suit” and “Vatican Shotgun Scare”.

Track Name: Fear
I see your eyes wide open, I can see it all
Your hands are shivering, just waiting for her call
And then the phone rings, and you`re feeling pretty grim
Your nerves are shaking, and you`re feeling sick as sin

Hide away now
Hide away
Hide away now
Hide away

If she could ask you questions drinking gin
Her heart wide open, she sees you as her king
But you`re beside yourself, kicking through this game
You never trusted her, and here we are again

Hide away now
Hide away
Hide away now
Hide away

Just shut up
Just shut up
Just shut up
Just shut up
Just shut up
Just shut up
Track Name: Over My Shoulder
Your salty words have left me drunk and hating
They cut me deep within
I shut my eyes and still the tears are falling
Your scars tattoo my skin

And now I'm finding this hard to believe
A dead-eyed love has chilled my bones
Over my shoulder, your blue eyes still blink
My black horizon, coming home

The devil in you has left me dumbstruck
You`re playing games I can`t win
My bitter soul is full of…
And I get reeled back in

And now I'm finding this hard to believe
A dead-eyed love has chilled my bones
Over my shoulder, your blue eyes still blink
My black horizon, coming home

If I could ask you a dumb-ass question
Would you hit back with sticks and stones?
Your lethal words will burn and…
The thorn without the rose

And now I'm finding this hard to believe
A dead-eyed love has chilled my bones
Over my shoulder, your blue eyes still blink
My black horizon, coming home
Track Name: Confessions
Hotel shelters, subway dreams
I try to wake but still I sleep, still I sleep
I sold my soul on…
And no-one here to rescue me, rescue me

And do you remember the Catholic Church?
Confessed our sins in whispered words, those sinful words

And now I'm drowning too far gone
And you`re too scared to pull me out, you`re one sad fuck
...
If I could stay here standing proud, it kills my doubt

And do you remember the Catholic Church?
Confessed our sins in whispered words, those sinful words

But I`m too cold and I can`t see
The road to freedom`s lost on me, lost on me

And do you remember the Catholic Church?
Confessed our sins in whispered words, those sinful words
And do you remember the icon`s tears?
We sat beside her and shared her fears, oh those fears...
Track Name: Last Night at the Gallows
Words :Sharon Woods
Music : Sharon Woods / Jamie Mearns
Track Name: For My Father
Another father made us dream we could have
A different life from what we had
Made light of nightmares of the past
A new beginning made to last

So now we`re kicking through this mess we were in
You gave us love when we were left happiness
And now I hold onto your hand
I wish this day would never end

We met you in your suit and our eyes grew wide
So sweet and gentle from the start, we were surprised
Because we were used to life among the drunks and crazies
And you walk in and show us how to have a clear mind

So now we`re kicking against this mess we were in
You gave us love when we were left happiness
And now I hold onto your hand
I wish this day would never end

I sent you letters when you sailed, you wrote back


And now we`re kicking against this mess we were in
You gave us love when we were left happiness
And now I hold onto your hand
I wish this day would never end
Track Name: Stay
Now it's time to let me show how I feel
Beneath the lies that you told, I’m nothing

Stay, stay with me
Stay, won’t you stay with me?

And I’m still wild as you made… or is life blue now?
A stupid notion but I… you feel something
Hanging on your coattails, I tumble over
It’s not as funny as it sounds

So could you

Stay, stay with me
Stay, won’t you stay with me?
Stay, stay, stay with me
Stay, won’t you stay with me?

Now could I hold your hand?
Now could I hold your hand?
Now could I hold your hand?
Now could I hold your hand?

And now it’s time to let me show how I feel
Beneath the lies that you told, I’m nothing
Hanging on your coattails, I tumble over
It’s not as funny as it sounds

So could you

Stay, stay with me
Stay, won’t you stay with me?
Stay, stay, stay with me
Stay, won’t you stay with me?

Now could I hold your hand?
Now could I hold your hand?
Now could I hold your hand?
Now could I hold you?
