In 2005, the NY Times said: "Audiences have turned away from music that is innocuous, contrived escapism ... the current buzzword is honesty, whether in revealing personal perspectives or engaging world events … there’s a forgotten audience that’s rewarding artists with their loyalty.”

Honesty in the music scene is good news for Two Looks Away. Simplicity and honesty are what these guys are about. Their music is a tasteful mosaic of rock, pop, and folk, with a touch of country, R & B, soul and blues – no electronic beats or sampled hooks, no stacked overdubs or carefully engineered vocal tracks -- just straight-ahead guitars, strong vocals, honest lyrics and great melodic hooks.

LYRICS

YOU'RE SO GOOD
Copyright 2004 Gray/DeFonza/Skye

You're so good, you're so fine
It's hard to be around you all the time

So upstanding, righteous and handy
Clean and dandy
Words roll off your tongue like sugared candy

You're so good, you're so fine
So crisp and sublime
It's hard to be around you

So respected, one of the elected
Nearly perfected
A monument to you should be erected

You're so good, you're so fine
So crisp and sublime
It's hard to be around you all the time

It must be tough for you to take me
You're so much more evolved than me
You know you're never gonna break me
And make me be what you pretend to be

You're so good, you're so fine
So crisp and sublime
You're so good ...


IT ISN'T RIGHT
Copyright 2004 Gray/DeFonza [Back to Top]

How do we keep on keeping on, how do we move on down the line,
When we're praying for the peaceful and pain is all we find?

How do we stay on that lonely road, when all we wanna do is turn around,
When we long for that familiar voice and we don't hear a sound?

It isn't right, when someone leaves you all alone
It isn't right, you still want them by your side
It isn't right when you're under heavy stone and you're lost in the night
Oh, the weight of the night, you know it isn't right

How do we hold on to the memories when it's so much easier to forget?
They tell us time will heal the wounds, it hasn't healed them yet

You find the heart that lies alone is dying on the vine
I will love and water yours, and you can water mine

It isn't right, when someone leaves you all alone
It isn't right, you still want them by your side
It isn't right when you're under heavy stone and you're lost in the night
And you can't see the light
Oh, the weight of the night, you know it isn't right


VICTORIA IS LAUGHING
Copyright 2003 Gray-DeFonza [Back to Top]

All she feels is desperate longing to heal the dark and cloudy corners of her life
She waits alone for the morning, for the light to take the storm front from her eyes
Victoria is laughing while she's dancing in the rain

Something stirs, somehow she brightens, someone puts a little sparkle in her mind
Her vision clears, her senses heighten, her body tingles from the giddiness inside

Victoria is laughing while she's dancing in the rain

And all the rain it tickles everything she does
She knows the cloudiness can never kill the sun
Now when she feels she's about to come undone she smiles

Victoria ... Victoria
Victoria is laughing while she's dancing in the rain


SAVOR THE DAY
Copyright 2003 Gray-DeFonza [Back to Top]
If you look you may see there's a soul
If you climb you may find there's a toll
If you dig you may find there's a hole
If you look you may see there's a soul
If you sing you may find there's a song
And it may have been there all along
Put it right in the place it belongs
If you sing you may find there's a song

Savor the day, save what you say
Say what you, don't drive it away

If you swim you may find you get wet
If you pay you may find you're in debt
If you give you may find that you get
If you swim you may find you get wet

Savor the day, save what you say
Say what you, don't drive it away
