about

The Badenvilles Hobart, Australia

The Badenvilles formed in early 2013. The group’s hybrid sound is born of each member’s individual taste and musical background. Gordie’s pledge when forming the band was to create music that sounded like Iggy Pop covering Johnny Cash. Or vice versa..

Track Name: This Town
-This town-
There's Cancer in my heart
And its eating me apart
now I’m just a twisted old man
My past always haunts me
Like a Ex they stalk me
But it’s the closest thing to love I have
I… Cant Breath
I… Can’t move
The thoughs on my mind crush me
The holes in my shoes stop me
I… can’t leave this town

The old man you see
Used to look like me
but I blame the lighting in my bathroom

I don’t know what I mean
But all my words are mean
I’ve got nothing nice to say

I… Cant Breath
I… Can’t move
The thoughs on my mind crush me
The holes in my shoes stop me
I… can’t leave this town

Im A whore that cant get laid
Means I cant get paid
-So I screw myself for free

My acid tounge
Is no longer fun
It gives rashes to all the girls
Track Name: Begging
Begging

his dreams turned against you
They’ve been chewing you like a bone
That sweet love…..is now empathy
And now you’re all alone

But you just keep begging
But you just keep begging
For the love been and gone

you’ve been burnt by hearts fire
Its just a flame that doesn’t always catch
And while the daylight strips your desire
I’v e heard he’s found his perfect match


But you just keep begging
But you just keep begging
For the love that Been and Gone


And you know in your heart that if you change.
It wouldn’t really change a thing
But you go ahead and change And act surprised

To you love is a prison cell
For which he holds the key
But the door is wide open
You refuse to set yourself free

But you just keep begging
But you just keep begging
For the love That’s been and gone
Track Name: Country
-Country-
I need more time
Just
|\while I fine
A piece of my mind lost so long ago
I just don’t know where to look
Anymore

I need myself
Nobody else
A place just to cut free
Somewhere I just to be me
once again

Move…….. Move to the country
Write….. write some poetry
I don’t mind of no body reads it
Its not written for them
Its written for me

Its …. Its all true
I’m … I’m not like you
I tried to be the person you wanted me to be
And I tried to be that person but it wasn’t me!
Track Name: The View
The View
I stood there
You stood there
You were next to me
You were next to me
I looked in your eyes
You looked in mine
Tell me what you see
It looked all right to me

We share space
And we share time
But we never shared a view
But we never shared a view

I saw this
You saw that
What was in our way
Was it in our way?
I had less
You had more
It was un fair
And you wouldn’t share

We share space
And we share time
But we never shared a view
But we never shared a view

I was broken
You were perfect
You tried to fix me
You tried to heal me
My sun set
As your sun rose
One more horizon line
That would end our time
Track Name: Summer
Summer
I Wish I was the sun that touched your face
I wish I was the sand on your feet

I wish I was your
Summer lover
Your summer love

I wish I was the breeze that brushed your hair
I wish I was the ring that held your hand
I wish… I was your
Summer Lover
Your summer love

I see the way you look at the sea
I wish you could look that way at me
I see the way you look at the sea
I wish you could look that way at me

I wish I was the dress that clings to you
I wish I was the broach close to your heart.
Track Name: The Man
The Man
You say you want to follow me down!
Well that’s kind of noose I like around
I’m out here drowning in all my sin
I don’t want you to save me but dive on in
You say you wont get jealous when I’m on the wine
That makes you a woman of the rarest kind

I’m like sweet honey to a bubble bee
No wonder women are always after me

Hey baby don’t you know who I am!
I’m YOUR dream lover man

I’m born and bred down in paradise
And I’ve never worked a day in my life
I just need a queen for my throne
Someone to love and someone to own
`
When I walk in to my local titty bar
I have to warn the girls I only go so far
They all wanna get dressed for me
Take me home and rent a DVD
Hey baby don’t you know who I am!
I’m YOUR dream lover man

I’m a doctor with a law degree
I’ll save your life and then you liberty
I’ve got more money then I know what to do
When I get that girl I be her dream come true

There so much sadness is this world today
But I’m gonna fix it in my own way
I’ll send every woman at picture of me
And all the starving people with so happy

Hey baby don’t you know who I am!
I’m YOUR dream lover man


Track Name: Susie Que
Susie Que
Susie, oh Susie que
Thoughts so deep, men drown in you
You’re wild, like an animal
So wild. That the boys don’t call

Susie, oh Susie que
Cinderella, who’s lost her shoe
You’ve lost your prince
And you been looking ever since
But you’ve gotta find yourself before someone finds you

Susie, Oh Susie que
All your dream, that can’t come true
They hold you like madness
That you can’t hope to harness

Susie Oh Susie que
Fine crystal no one can see though
You preach simplicity
Yet you desire nothing but luxury
How do you get what you need. If you don’t know what you want

And is this the reason why?
You seek only pleasure with your eye?
\And you can catch it, with your magic sway..
But perfection, you’ll throw it all away..

Susie, Oh Susie que
Why is your heart so blue
You have every thing you need
But desire cannot match your greed

Susie, Oh Susie que
If only they all knew
That your just playing the part
Life is one big stage for you
But how can you pretend when you don’t know who your pretending to be?
Track Name: Exile
Exile
In ……..in the darkness, you left a light on for me
In….. in the silence, you call out my name
When I lost my mine, I was in your thoughts
When I broke my heart, you gave me all your love
And….. Asked for nothing in return

I exiled myself, I thought I needed to be alone
And You with your wisdom, gently dragged me home

And When…. I couldn’t crawl, you carried me
left far behind.. you stayed there with me
When I stood for nothin, you took my stand
As I feel apart, you held me tight
And….. Asked for nothing in return
Chorus
I exiled myself, I thought I needed to be alone
And You with your wisdom, gently dragged me home

They…They all forgot me, you kept a vidual for me
I … lost my faith, you kept me in your prays
buried in misery, so you just dug deep
I though I had nothing, but I had a friend
I though I had nothing, but I had a friend
I though I had nothing, but I had a friend

And….. Asked for nothing in return
Track Name: Coffee Shop
Coffee Shop
Well I’ll meet you down at that coffee shop
Were they serve instant coffee in a Styrofoam cup
I know it aint classy but neither are we
Prices so good that its praticaly free
Like us

I’m in my blue jeans ,you in a track suit
You drive your kingswood, I’ll drive my dads ute
Its isn’t classy, but ether are we
Its nice to be you, its nice to be me

Ahh the Hobart days
Ahh the Hobarts daze
Ahh the Hobart days
Ahh the Hobarts daze


Well I’ll meet you down at that coffee shop
We can drink instant from a Styrofoam cup
It isn’t classy, but either are we
It’s good to be young, it’s good to be free
Track Name: Friend or Enemy
Friend or enemy
My youth was like a lover
I took her for granted now she gone
I guess it was probably for the best
Something is bound to come along

I’ve finally learnt what to do
Sadly by most the things I’ve done
But not all my bridges are burnt
I’ve still got some lessons left to learn

I need to know
Is time my friend or my enemy?
Everything she seem to have given
Eventually taken from me


I’ll be the judge of my trails
And I’ll plead guilty to playing the fool
I’d rather make then laugh then cry
save my tear for when I get home

I’m thankful to all of my friends
And learnt to like the company of myself
we smile with every sunbeam
and laugh with the miracle of the rain
I need to know
Is time my friend or my enemy?
Everything she seem to have given
Eventually taken from me

Sometimes my charm gently whispers
While my desperation seems to madly screams
but I’ve learnt to count all my blessings
even the ones that aint what they seem

when I think back to all my lovers
I’m greatful for love and time we share
yet leave the past where it cant hurt us
and forgive our selfs for having fragile hearts

I need to know
Is time my friend or my enemy?
Everything she seem to have given
Eventually taken from me

I’ve finally got the devil of shoulder
And stoped chasing every angel I see
Yesterday wasn’t perfect
And tomorrow still a mystery to me
