about

Gibraltar Seattle, Washington

Gibraltar is Aaron & Holly & Nick & Gwen.


Influenced by rock’s most creative outbursts--70’s hard rock, 80’s punk/new wave, and 90’s alternative--Gibraltar makes a feel-good formula sound new again. Angular guitars buzz, Nicky Hopkins-like piano chimes, and yearning vocal melodies amp tension while encouraging anthemic sing-alongs. The sound is dark and moody, and laden with memorable hooks. ... more

Track Name: Prologue (Instrumental)
(instrumental)
Track Name: Zero-Sum
this is not how it ends
so don’t condescend
it’s with a song, with a song, with this song, my friend
and all the words left unsaid

you said i could make it
you said i could take it
you said i would break and in the end i will

it’s not all that i want, i want everything
i’ll stay till the end, i’ll take everything
if you walk away, you’ll lose everything
so let’s find a way to keep everything

so here we are
the loud corners of a room
two bulls in a dance
locked horns too soon

you said i could make it
you said i could take it
you said i would break and in the end i will

it’s not all that i want, i want everything
and i’ll stay till the end, i’ll take everything
if you walk away, you’ll lose everything
so let’s find a way to keep everything

it’s not all that i want, i want everything
and i’ll stay till the end, i’ll take everything
if you walk away, you’ll lose everything
so let’s find a way to keep everything

It’s all I want, i want everything
we’ll take it apart and keep everything
you’re all that i want, you’re everything
it isn’t the end, it’s everything
Track Name: The First Ten Years
and when i wake up this time
i hope i wake up and find you asleep

the first ten years you’ll see
are all you’ll take to the end

someday i lose my mind
but i won’t forget
what we did

i watched it all fall apart
i see it every, every day

maybe i’ll get it right
maybe i’m wasting time
but i’m going to try
try to do it right

if the last ten years you get
fall too fast
don’t leave

and when you look and find me asleep
i hope you’re satisfied

i watched it all fade away
i see it every, every day

maybe i’ll get it right
maybe i’m wasting time
but i’m going to try
try to do it right

someday i’ll lose my mind
but i won’t forget
what we said

‘cause when I wake this time
i hope i wake up and find
you asleep
Track Name: Let's Get Beautiful
when i step outside the chelsea doors
not sure who i am anymore
black on black and my eyes they match
oh, thank you Lou for your metaphors

i wanted more
i wanted more

i don’t care what those people say
i don’t feel so strange anymore
and what do you want from them anyway?
i see you change and that matters more

i want a war
i want a war

bold change
bold change has come for me
big change
big change is hard to see

i feel like a mess
as i walk across the subway floor
all i’ve got is this lonely dress
i look like i could start a war

i want a war
i wanted more

bold change
bold change is hard for me
big change
big change is hard to see
bold change has come for me
bold change

when the fight goes out
when the lights go down
Track Name: Songs For A Car
i’m working hard to find
i’m not alone anymore
i’m taking all this time
because it’s like not before

but this is how we’ll break
it’s all we know how to do
and this is where i’ll stand
like i stood long ago

you took it all away
you took it too far today
don’t break it

you look the other way
you took it too far today
don’t break it

i’m wishing i could call
you back home to me
so this is where i’ll stand
like i did long ago

you took it all away
you took it too far today
don’t break it

you look the other way
you took it too far today
don’t break it

you took it all away
you took it all away
you look the other way
Track Name: Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want
good times for a change
see the luck i’ve had
could make a good man turn bad
so please please please
let me let me let me
let me get what i want this time

haven’t had a dream in a long time
see the life i’ve had
could make a good man bad
so for once in my life
let me get what i want
lord knows it would be the first time
lord knows it would be the first time

haven’t had a dream in a long time
see the life i’ve had
could make a good man bad
so for once in my life
let me get what i want
lord knows it would be the first time
lord knows it would be the first time

lord knows it would be the first time
lord knows it would be the first time
Track Name: Interlude (Instrumental)
(instrumental)
Track Name: They're Alright (Without You)
i see it everyday
as you try to push, push away
i see it everyday
you’ll call my bluff and walk away

oh i want to play
oh i want you to stay
oh i want to play
oh i want you to stay

i see it every day
and i can’t stand another day
so maybe i’ll run away
someplace sunny, bold, and gay

oh i want to play
oh i want you to stay
oh i want to play
oh i want you to—

you call from far away
you love your sunny, sunny day
i guess it’s gonna rain
just like it did yesterday

my name is here to stay
and you can’t take, take it away
i see it every day
let’s walk and talk it out, ok?

walk
and talk
and walk

oh i want to play
oh i want you to stay
oh i want to play
oh i want you to—

what did i say?
what did i do?

i see you everyday
i need you to stay
Track Name: Cold
you worry and hurry all the time
all these fears of things unknown
the years are short but days are long
so don’t hurry you’ll make it on time

if you hold on tight i can make it alright
if you hold on tight i can make it on time
but you said i was wrong
i said you were cold
if you hold on tight i can make it alright

i see you dying before my eyes
so many people you will never know
thinning out, passing down, and rounding down
but don’t worry i’m doing just fine

if you hold on tight i can make it alright
if you hold on tight i can make it on time
but you said i was wrong
i said you were cold
if you hold on tight i can make it alright

if you hold on tight i can make it alright
if you hold on tight i can make it on time
but you said i was wrong
i said you were cold
if you hold on tight i can make it alright

if you hold on tight i can make it alright
if you hold on tight i can make it alright
Track Name: Rainbow F.U.
