Not Nice

Sometimes I’m nice but when I’m not nice, I’d rather you leave me alone.


Not Nice by Chris Garneau (from his album “Music for Tourists”.)

Always so still.
I never will be like you
And you never will strike me better.

It’s always so clear.
You never really hear at all
And I fear that you won’t get better.

When you’re not being nice,
You’re not nice,
You’re not nice,
You’re not nice,
I’d rather leave you alone.
I’d rather leave you alone.

You’ve been quiet for so long.
If something was wrong, you’d never say a word,
So I know that you won’t get better.

That’s your fifth drink.
Don’t you think that’s a lot?
Considering we’ve only been here for a little while now?

When you’re not being nice,
You’re not nice,
You’re not nice,
You’re not nice,
I’d rather leave you alone.
I’m gonna leave you alone.

Always so still.
I never will be like you
And you never will strike me better.

Sometimes you’re nice but
When you’re not nice,
You’re not nice,
You’re not nice,
You’re not nice,
I’d rather leave you alone.
I’m gonna leave you alone.
That’s all.

Meiday! Meiday!

If you haven’t heard of Meiday! Meiday!, it’s either you’re old, not in Facebook, or simply not interested in the local (indie) scene.

Meiday, as it is called by its regular partyphiles, is a sort of Woodstock Pinoy version, which features the local scene’s most in-demand bands, as well as upcoming bands that prove original Pinoy music’s demise is far from being witnessed by this generation. It’s the brainchild of Mei Bastes, who takes care of the nitty-gritty: from booking bands, to renting equipment, producing shirts, contacting sponsors and hosting the big night.

Now on it’s third year of celebrating free music and parties. Mei have no idea how long she can keep going with these parties. But one thing for sure, it keeps getting better.

So if you haven’t been, it’s not too late to do so.

Tip: You might want to have a read at The ‘Supreme’ Survival Guide for Meiday virgins: Meiday for newbies so you know what to do.

SEE YOU THERE! 🙂
