about

Chris Stringer & The Rocketeers are a 4-piece indie rock band based in the UK. Their sound blends the soulfulness of folk music, the grit of 90s rock - and the spirit of 80s pop! Chris has built a name for himself a solo artist in his own right, but the addition of The Rocketeers in 2017 gave the songs the full sound to match Stringer's soaring vocals and evocative lyrics.

lyrics

Taking my steps slow as we go into the unknown
My mind wanders back to you when I'm walking on my own
Where the dead lay down in rows
Where the cherry blossoms bloom
And the wild garlic grows

Even though I'm not superstitious
I still find myself making wishes
Losing all my inhibitions
Blowing away stray eyelashes

Hands held to my face as if it helps me find my way
I'm always fighting the desire to turn and walk away
So tell me something I don't know
The heart wants what it wants
So show me, which way should I go?

Even though I'm not superstitious
I still find myself making wishes
Losing all my inhibitions
Blowing away stray eyelashes

I can stay
If you'd like
I can stay
