about

Ryan Sterling Melbourne, Australia

A combination of influences that culminates in a sound that is unique and yet has a familiarity that is appealing. A guitar that can at times sound like three guitars and melodic vocals and harmonica that weave in and out of the guitar lines creatings an intriguing sound that gains more and more depth with each subsequent listen. All albums through Rizzy Records ... more

Track Name: Come Back Down
I don’t care about money
I don’t care about time
I don’t care about a thing except for you and I
I don’t care about drugs
I don’t care about beer
I don’t care about much all I need I’ve got right here

So don’t walk away, without looking behind ya
I’m dying behind this smile
I’m waiting for you to turn around and come back down
Come back down

I promise not to look sideways
I’ll never entertain the thought
Never take you for granted not once more anymore
I’ll try not to stay out late
I’ll do my best not to lie
Never let a stupid thing ever get between you and I

So don’t walk away, without looking behind ya
I’m dying behind this smile
I’m waiting for you to turn around and come back down
Come back down

So don’t walk away, without looking behind ya
I’m dying behind this smile
I’m waiting for you to turn around and come back down
Come back down
Track Name: Black Smoke Fills The Sky
Keep marching on, same soldiers song
Cities and the towns, black smoke in the clouds
Guns lay still warm, when you get time to call
Home from it all, eternal war

See when it rise, higher and higher
Crying for light when black smoke fills the sky

Taken from me, piece after piece
Trade dignity, for blood and debris
At night when it’s cold, thinking of home
Nowhere to go, forward we roll

See when it rise, higher and higher
Crying for light when black smoke fills the sky
Black smoke fills the sky

See when it rise, higher and higher
Crying for light when black smoke fills the sky
Black smoke fills the sky
Black smoke fills the sky
Track Name: Pretty Powder
I felt the feeling, I had that poison in my brain
I felt the money, taking all my cares away

Took that Melbourne plane straight to the North
Strapped that pretty powder to my bones

I felt the heat now, I felt that sweat it start to come
My eighth trip now, suspicion and a loaded gun

Took that Melbourne plane straight to the North
Strapped that pretty powder to my bones

I’m not here for no moral sermon
I’m not gunna philosophize
I’m just standing, shaking, in that firing line

Took that Melbourne plane straight to the North
Strapped that pretty powder to my bones
To my bones
Track Name: Black Skies Blue
Well you worked so hard to keep my attention
I feel sorry ‘cause you never really had it
No one likes to feel like their life is waiting
Held back, held down and neglected

Now I want you so much it’s like a kick in the guts
Makes me want to be sick, makes me want to throw up
Yeah I know, you can turn those black skies blue

From outer space the world looks small
From outta this dirt I’m growing tall
Yeah this spinning top I spin for you
‘Cause the gravity in your orbit makes me feel like I’m walking on the moon

Yeah, I want you so much it’s like a kick in the guts
Makes me want to be sick, makes me want to throw up
Yeah I know, you can turn those black skies blue

Your eyes are green, yeah I’ve seen it
When you’re walking down my street, I know
You can turn those black skies blue

When I’m walking, down by the water
And I call, out your name
Yeah I know, you’re standing there beside me
Holding back the rain

I want you so much it’s like a kick in the guts
Makes me want to be sick, makes me want to throw up
Yeah I know, you can turn those black skies blue

Your eyes are green, yeah I’ve seen it
When you’re walking down my street I know
You can turn those black skies blue
