about

PAPA is the first offering off Destrends’ forthcoming debut EP set for release in late 2016. Recorded by Finn Keane at Head Gap Studios, PAPA is loud, fast paced and aggressive whilst maintaining pop sensibilities. The track is characterised by a jagged and catchy guitar hook, and the listener is confronted with deep and compelling vocals. The song narrates an honest guilt and desperate plea for a father’s forgiveness.

lyrics

I'VE BEEN DREAMING OF THE OTHER SIDE
AND IF I MAKE IT WILL I BE ALRIGHT
IT DIED
THERE USED TO BE A GLEAM IN YOUR EYES

NOW I'VE BEEN THINKING BOUT MY FAMILY
HOW NOTHING'S EVER WHAT IT USED TO BE
I'VE TRIED
BUT NOW I'VE LEARNED TO SEE THROUGH THEIR LIES

AND WHEN I GET LOW, I CAN FEEL IT IN MY BONES
I FEEL IT IN MY FINGERS AND I FEEL IT IN MY TOES
PEOPLE TURNING ON ME ONE BY ONE
I GRAB MY PIECES AND RUN

PAPA, PAPA DON'T HATE ME
PAPA DON'T HATE ME
CAUSE I NEED YOU

PAPA, PAPA DON'T HATE ME
I KNOW YOU WANNA REGULATE ME
CAUSE I NEED YOU

DADDY I KNOW I CAN BE UNKIND
BUT I CAN'T STAND TO SEE THEM BY YOUR SIDE
I'VE CRIED
I DIDN'T MEAN WHAT HAPPENED TONIGHT

I TURNED OUT NOTHING LIKE YOU THOUGHT I'D BE
BUT THIS IS NOT MY PERSONALITY
I'LL TRY
I'M GONNA KEEP MY TONGUE TIED
