about

You're My A.N.G.E.L. is unapologetic, gritty and unpolished... just the way the band likes it.

credits

released July 11, 2014

"This is our best with what we had" says the band. "It won't appeal to many listeners (with drums recorded via smart phone mic) but we're still very proud to be D.I.Y. and LO-FI - sort of like Springsteen channeled through R. Stevie Moore"

Inspired by, and even very loosely chronicling the bands's mostly "off-again" existence going back twenty years, the release contains 7 tracks which would probably be best described as bluesy garage rock.

Lonnieclaire was formed twenty years ago and at that time recorded a handful demos and played some local gigs. The band survived only a few years, but the spirit has lived on morphing Lonnieclaire eventually into more of a "recording project".

Track Name: We Like it Loud!
We Like it Loud!
----------------------
Now is the time!
Don't wait for signs!

I know you'll be smart today
but can you be safe today?
they'll eat you up if you're fake
and shit you out the same way

Learn but disobey
lie on your resume

Do it Now!
We Like it Loud!

Track Name: In Love With Her
In Love with Her
----------------------
I'm in love with you
and only you
But you're in love with him
and only him
what are we to do?
can't even make sense
it doesn't even make a difference to you
what are we supposed to do?
what could we ever do?

I could go
I could leave
I don't think normal to see
all this pain
its so insane
It really rattles 'round my brain

She's in love with him
and only him
But he's in love with one
of her friends
what could she do?
can't even make sense
it doesn't even make a difference to you
what are we supposed to do?
what could we ever do?

She's in love with her
He's in love with him
But he caught with another guy
who dated her friend Jim
what could he ever do?
it doesn't even make sense
does it even mean anything to you?
what is she supposed to do?
what could they ever do?

Track Name: No Tears
'No Tears'
----------
Hold my hand
(as we) Cross the street
You always be
So special to me

Wash your hands
And clear away
All the grime and dirt
That we found today

No tears..No No tears
I'm running from any of those fears

Take A Stand
You know you're free
You can be
Anything you want to be

Do your best
honor thy crest
And you can
throw out the rest

No tears
No No tears
I'm running from any of those fears

We're on the road
we're on The road of dreams
thrown through the glass
and we unravel at our seams

"Be" your own man and always be "free"

Track Name: New Mexico Gold
New Mexico Gold
--------------------
Alone at the bar that night I sat eating beans and rice
and along came bad three hombres who offered me some "friendly" advice
to pay your gambling debts you'll have to find our desert Gold
o'er the Rocky Mountains your trip will end in heart of New Mexico

alas I wouldn't have ventured there if I knew then what I know now
but Rosie was due in a month and I wanted to see my baby somehow
so I packed up my pistols and eight dirty sticks of TNT
and loaded up my mule for a long trip towards the sea

I got so cold that night I never thought I lose that chill
and I never thought I'd be pushed so far that I would even kill
down at Beggar's pass I had a smoke with eldest chief
and on the 8th night I finally found the stream of the weeping leaf

But then aghast, I spied eery lights of blue
and I couldn't tell the shape it was or gauge their magnitude
that's when eight a little green dude surrounded me right there
and knocked me out with a syringe that probably would've killed a bear

In my dreams you fill my cup and gauze my bloody skin
and replace my brittle spine with strong titanium pins
'cause now I just float alone in that alien's cloning tube
They'll be a thousand more like me walking the earth real soon

Track Name: 1000 Lies
1000 Lies
----------
1000 lies shouldn't
penalize an entire generation
its not helping to solve any problems
its only sign we've been thrown to the wolves

It turns it was you
wasn't it you?

1000 crimes a day
shouldn't get piled on top of the pain
its not helping to solve any problems
its only sign we're being cast to the wind

There's a 1000 piled in the cell
and more comin' to be torn down to hell
its not helping to solve any problems
its only sign we've been gorged by the wolves

Track Name: The Lonesome Highway (Live)
The Lonesome Highway
---------------
We never begged for this to last
Bodies getting buried since the first blast

You cut to the bone and chew on the shank
Your name disappearing from that dirty snow bank

I could scrape away your tears using with my rusty jackknife
its getting real hard to move on with my half-baked stupid life
I sounded three alarms that night but you know I still overslept
and clearly I wasn't looking out where I stepped

So we will take that Lonesome Highway
We will take that Lonesome Highway

You cut to the bone and chew on the shank
Your name disappearing from that dirty snow bank
I will dry your eyes if I can

So I'm back on the ledge
Thinking of you
but I still have one pack of matches here
Want to find a way?
It could be great
can were get to there?

Could I be the one?
Maybe its too soon
If so then we can only do our best
You say its so hard
But I know you didn't come out of hiding just to be a tease
I was going to go to school
Then I met you and now I caught this terrible disease
