about

Storey London, UK

Combining consummate musicianship, an ear for poetry and soaring lyricism, Storey's music charts a beguiling course through the urban summer. From their hypnotic trademark vocal harmonies to the funky dance-fused beats and cascading guitar motifs, these are sounds which burrow into the bloodstream; music you want to share. Yet deep down, a part of you really
wants to keep for yourself...

Track Name: Promise Of You
Promise Of You

This is the moment, the pay-off you deserve
You ignore the logic so that faith can be preserved
A coin toss you correctly call the outcome
That doesn’t give it meaning, that doesn’t give it meaning

On a loaded dice-roll you weigh up your chances
Giving too much meaning to trivial glances
A fool’s hope just one bullet in the chamber
Maybe it’s now or never, maybe it’s now or never

Lay it down, lay it down, yeah
I’m gambling it all, all I have to lose
On the promise of you
After all, don’t fail me now, yeah
Good money after bad
Is it real, is it you or just the promise of you?

Everything you thought would be different about her
Turned out the same just the morning after
And what has changed when you look into the mirror?
Isn’t this what you dreamed of, isn’t this what you dreamed of?

Your skill alone maybe enough of a guarantee
Or can desire triumph in perpetuity?
Ignorance and arrogance a lethal combination
Maybe they’ll never catch you, maybe they’ll never catch you

Lay it down, lay it down, yeah
I’m gambling it all, all I have to lose
On the promise of you
After all, don’t fail me now, yeah
Good money after bad
Is it real, is it you or just the promise of you? (x2)
