about

Green Monroe Arlington, Massachusetts

Green Monroe is Michael Spaly's solo / experimental recording project. He had a dream where he was back in 3rd grade. Everybody started whispering excitedly about a band that was coming to town. The band's name was "Green Monroe". Since he was not allowed to name his child after another dream-inspired name, he settled for naming his band after that nocturnal muse. ... more

Track Name: Memories
Memories
Of sunset-lit meadows in summer
Memories
Of walks though the forested night
Oh the memories,
All that we shared, of our lives, when we were young-er
Memories, of you, in my arms, as we danced,
And we talked of tomorrow

Hold me
I’m feeling so lonely
Holding
Holding each other tight
Hold me
Hold on to me tight, help me shake off my fear of tomorrow
Hold me, in your arms, in the moon, through the night
And talk of tomorrow

Someday
Someday we’ll fly over mountains
Someday
Someday we won’t have to try
Someday
Someday we’ll sweep it away and forget all about it
Someday we’ll kiss, and we’ll dance, and we’ll drink, and we’ll talk of our memories

"When we first met, I had no chance but to love you
But with love brings pain and we’ve both had our share of tears"

But the memories,
All that we shared, of our lives, when we were young-er
Memories, of you, in my arms, as we danced,
And we talked of tomorrow
Track Name: Goodbye
"Goodbye is always a bitter pill
But our parting left a taste I can't wash away
Whiskey numbs, but never does it fill
And I grow more hollow everyday"

These have been the worst days of my life
Sure hope everything turns out right
Can't even look you in the eye
These last three months have been one big lie

You paint us in a corner, what am I to do
You say you want it so bad, I've got to believe you

Goodbye
Just walk away if you don't want to see the tears in my eyes
Goodbye

So now it's time to tell you again
Would it be bad if I snuck out of here, never to be seen again
Because I don't want to make you cry
I've got my own tears to deal with, and I'm embarased to say

Goodbye
Just walk away if you don't want to see the tears in my eyes
Goodbye
