Raymon In my humble opinion, on of the best indie bands out there. Andrea and Dick work wonders in the studio and take the opposite journey than almost all other two person bands "minimalistic" route. Favorite track: Life is good.

“Luke” is a collection of 11 songs heading in different directions while sharing a common watermark thanks to the band’s straight forward approach.

The band has been described as a "compromise between the powerful impact of an arena rock act and the urgency and dirt of a garage band, with a fondness for heartfelt songs".
Influenced by indie rock as well as alt-folk, I Used To Be A Sparrow created a very personal record in which the key element of simplicty cohexist with clever arrangements,

Track Name: Cambodia
...and this summer ends with a bang. You can see the autumn leaves, leaving its place. I know that you found what you were looking for. Something else going faster than this slow-beating heart.
Track Name: Life is good
We move like shadows in the night, keeping it simple. We move like sparrows in the spring, and everything is alright. Life is good today, don't you worry, no. Every direction is a new way home. We move like shadows in the night, on the streets where we used to live, and we are keeping it simple. I think you know. I used to be a sparrow, I used to be your heart and light.
Track Name: Smoke
We denied every last line in the hope to make it fade away, over reacting like the last time that i saw your face as you walked away. And as I am burning down the evidence, the smoke turns into the ghost of you. Every now and then I pray for the rain to come down and wash away the smoke that turned into the ghost of you.
Track Name: Let go
and here we go again
and I'm drunk as hell
and the sky is not
as bright as it used to be.

Why can't I
let you go
forever

and here we go again
but there´s nothing left
all the city lights
have gone black
oh, why can't I let you go
I will sink to the bottom like a stone on a chain.

I wanna know if you´ve got some love for me
I wanna know if you´ve got something.

oh sometimes
I wish that I could see it.
In the morning light
your shadow casts upon me
and it feels so right
Track Name: Hawaii
oh when the morning light comes
you´ll see i´m not glowing
I always held my head up high
watching the world from the rooftops
but something else came along
and changed my view
as you look for heart and desire
I look for everything else

oh when the morning lights comes
you´ll see everything is different
from faces to places
and everything else around you
i know i don't feel it
so i don't have to pretend
as you look for heart and desire
i look for everything else

you think it´s so easy
but these times are hard
i know what i´m looking for
and it´s not here
Track Name: Moby Dick
I think i found it
way out, lost at sea
oh these things never last
i´ve got it all in this head somewhere
something found, something missing
I can´t keep the track of time
i think i´m losing it now

I thought It was the only way out
and there´s never an easy way
but if i´ve got it
I´ve got it all
and that´s always something

You thought you knew me
but I changed over time
oh these things never last
kept you in distance and oh kept you so close
and now we´re burning towards the end
Track Name: Copenhagen
I´m gonna build myself a new home
far away from this
gonna leave a door open
for anyone to come in
and eveytime the sun comes up
i wonder what it feels like
to wake up where you are
to be there where you are

everythings not lost
it just takes me a lifetime to get there

give me the love you have
give me the love you have

and even if i walk a thousand miles
to reach the point where I find nothing
i don't mind
because i know i can walk a thousand more
just to wake up where you are
to be there where you
Track Name: Alaska
I cannot stand that look in your eyes,
So I sit back and wonder why
I run in loops and I can't stop
I run in loops and I can't stop
and I can't stand no more "falling on my knees".

But i won't let go

I won't be long before I see
That I won't forget , but I will never go back
I run in loops and I can't stop
I run in loops and I can't stop
and I can't stand no more "falling on my knees".

But i won't let go
