about

'Leagues' is an emotional exploration of an imbalanced relationship, and also the thematic prequel to Bette Midler's 'Wind Beneath My Wings'. The EP ranges from the synth-pop of the title track to the love balladry of 'You're Not Quite Her'.

about

Yossarian Lives Dublin, Ireland

Yossarian Lives began in 2007 as the pseudonym of Rob Shiels, a multi-instrumentalist and producer from Dublin. The name eventually expanded to engulf 3 others - Ger Lynch, James Lindsay and James Lovatt, musical veterans of Valetta, Brazen Lungs and The Crayon Set respectively. The foursome specialise in quirky, clever lyrics set to catchy melodic hooks and spiffy electro-folk-pop arrangements. ... more

Track Name: Leagues
Baby, you made it; I knew you would,
I know how you craved it - it's in your blood.
But you'll always love me - that's what you said before the fame,
But if you're above me, can you feel the same?

You're in the Premier League, I'm three divisions down,
I don't even start,
You and I are leagues apart.
You and I are leagues apart and everyone can tell,
You and I are leagues apart and growing further still,
You and I are leagues apart.

You get in most nights and I'm in bed,
A halo of moonlight around your head,
The parties we go to, I'm in the corner every time,
Watching a whole room look at you and smile.

Your face has been on the front of beauty magazines,
I'm no work of art,
You and I are leagues apart.
You and I are leagues apart and everyone can tell,
You and I are leagues apart and growing further still,
You and I are leagues apart.

One night I was lying in bed,
Two demons crept inside my head,
One was Jealousy, the other Doubt,
And I thought I'd hear them out,
And they said "We will eat you,
We will eat you up."

You and I are leagues apart and everyone can tell,
You and I are leagues apart and growing further still,
You and I are leagues apart.

Oh!
“We will eat you,
We will eat you up,
We’ll eat you up - We love you so.”
