about

Jeremy Megert & The Megalomaniacs Dallas, Texas

Harkening back to the power trio format of the 60s, Jeremy Megert and the Megalomaniacs deliver music that is firmly rooted in the past, butwith an ear toward the future.

Combining the best of blues, jazz, and straight-ahead rock, the Megalomaniacs create music that is as complex as it is listenable

More like a great jazz combo than a bar band, the Megalomaniacs seldom rely on cliche rock riffs.

Track Name: I Shouldn't Need
I shouldn't need to breathe you in
I shouldn't need to breathe you in

My hands get hot when you are around
I feel things that have no sound
Like the air that I struggle to take
And your eyes when you look at my face

I shouldn't need to breathe you in
I shouldn't need to breathe you in

Oh help me I do
Help me I do
Help me I do
Oh won't you help me cause I

I shouldn't need to breathe you in
I shouldn't need to breathe you in

Well one kiss could end this obsession
Or my ocean of trouble could grow
It's not like me even to wonder
And I'll never walk down that road

I shouldn't need to breathe you in
I shouldn't need to breathe you in

(solo)

I'll sing this song right to your face
Let it hurt less because you don't know
Will it help to ease my burden
My heart has never been cold

I shouldn't need to breath you in

Oh help me I do
Oh help me I do
Oh help me I do
I don't trust myself when I'm with you

Cause I shouldn't need to breathe you in
I shouldn't need to breathe you in
Track Name: Goodnight Los Angeles
Goodnight Los Angeles, goodnight & goodbye
Goodnight Los Angeles, goodnight & goodbye

This city doesn't hold me like it used to
& I don't know where we lie
We no longer fit together
& I'll always wonder why

Oh goodnight, goodnight & goodbye
Goodnight Los Angeles, goodnight & goodbye

Emotions come & emotions go
I guess that I do too
I'm stuck here in a faithless town & I don't know where
These roads will lead me to

Maybe we've out grown each other
I know that one day you will find another
I never thought that we'd find ourselves here
Star crossed and gone without each other

Goodnight

(solo)

It's coming on strong
& I'm no longer held sway by your tide
Heavy as it comes, heavy as it goes
To the east I found a sunrise

Goodnight Los Angeles, goodnight & goodbye
Goodnight Los Angeles, goodnight & goodbye
Track Name: Everything I Can
Was a lonely past year for me
Couldn't find no one to care for
Wasn't that I couldn't find a girl
I just couldn't find the right one

I was waiting for a diamond in the rough
Then I saw you shining through
Since that moment I've know what I wanted
And my heart it set on you

Can't you feel it coming through
I only want to be with you
I'm doing everything I can
To earn my title as your man

Come on baby let me sweep you off your feet
Let me show you what I got
Come on darling what on earth are you affraid of
Nothing wrong with getting taught

You know that I can read it in your eyes
You know I see it in you smile
Mama if you want to be my rider
You know I'll make it worth your while

Can't you feel it coming through
I only want to be with you
I'm doing everything I can
To earn my title as your man

(solo)

Can't you feel it coming through
I only want to be with you
I'm doing everything I can
To earn my title as your man
Track Name: As It Goes
Don't cry boy
Love will come to you
It finds us all
More somedays than others

Sometimes it goes away
& I know that ain't ever easy
As it slips through your fingers
No matter how hard you hold

Sometimes it lets you go
Sometimes it lets you stay
Sometimes it lets you go
Sometimes it lets you stay

I know the world just won't turn
& your heart will never feel the light
That will come to pass
It just needs a little more time

Someday she'll be just another girl
& this will be just another time
You walked down the road
To what you were meant to find

Sometimes it lets you go
Sometimes it lets you stay
Sometimes it lets you go
Sometimes it lets you stay

Someday she'll be just another girl
& this will be just another time
You walked down the road
To what you were meant to find

Someday I'll take my own advice
& I'll learn how to let things lie
Get as good at letting go
As I am at saying goodbye

Sometimes it lets me go
Sometimes it lets me stay
Sometimes it lets us go
Sometimes it lets us stay
Track Name: California
Stories I thought I knew
I just can't recall
What reminds me of your face
No longer resonates at all
Circumstance & time will change
Long before the fall

You're a distant memory trying to fade away
You slip a little bit more every single day
I had to leave
California I could not stay
I had to find another way

Time's a number
Hanging on my wall
It doesn't have to mean
Anything at all
It's got a face that likes to change
Oh but don't we all

You're a distant memory trying to fade away
You slip a little bit more every single day
I had to leave
California I couldn't not stay
I had to find another way

I got the guilt that comes along
With the trade I chose to make
& like the memory of your face
As it rolls it will fade

You're a distant memory trying to fade away
You slip a little bit more as I turn the page
I had to leave
California I could not stay
I had to find another way
Track Name: Deliberate Loner
Windows
You never looked in
Doors through which
You could have walked

But the moments passed you by
& you wonder where you'd be
If you had stopped
If you had stopped

Pictures you see
That you're not in
& sometimes you wish you had your place
Back again

But the moments passed you by
& you wonder where you'd be
If you had stopped
If you had stopped

Deliberate loner
Tell me where will you roll
Deliberate loner
Tell me how long can you go

You never learned to walk backwards
Not that you'd even try
To reach for the hand and take
The chair that you denied

But the moments passed you by
& you wonder where you'd be
If you had stopped
If you had stopped

Deliberate loner
Tell me where will you roll
Deliberate loner
Tell me how long can you go

Windows
I never looked in
Doors through which
I could have walked

But the moment looked me right in the face
& I said
I just can't stop
I just can't stop
I just can't stop
I just can't stop
Track Name: Southern Girl
Southern girl, southern girl
I can't let you alone
Southern girl, southern girl
I can't let you alone
So many reasons why I shouldn't need you
But I can't find one strong enough
To make me let go

Southern girl, southern girl
Center of my world with you I am at home
Southern girl, southern girl
Center of my world you're the gravity I've always known
So many reasons why I shouldn't need you
But I can't find one strong enough
To make me move on

(solo)

Southern girl, southern girl
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know what I should do
Southern girl, southern girl
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know what I should do
Stop being so careful
Climb on and let your love for me shine through
