How My Summer Vacation Spent Me

Good luck with the weather in your new town I hope it's better, it's enough of a rush, to hear the traffic from a foreign room. And those few nights you're alone, promise not to think of me, or call me any more.

All you are to me now is good material, nothing to write home about.

Just a boy you couldn't commit to, the best thing left in your old memories, I don't care if you don't miss me.

Did my face get that much harder for you to recognise? I swear I look the same in mirrors, it must just be your eyes, as you're trying not to see me, please try to believe me when I tell you I don't care.

Chris once wished for brown eyes, I wouldn't trade mine, not for you.

I've nothing left to say to you, you're name's just a knife in my side, and so am I.

This is a start.

These songs were written between 2008 and 2009. They were recorded by Jamie Ward with the help of Kyle Brooks.
John Helps designed the art on this page.
Rob Fisher has designed a cover.

I wanted to finally get these songs in one place, together, as an EP. Oscar Gold felt like a very appropriate name for the band.

Thank you.
