about

Bandits on the Run New York, New York

Bandits on the Run are your friendly neighborhood criminals, whose sole purpose is to reinvigorate the element of surprise by making musical mischief in unexpected places.

To your ears, these whimsical criminals will sound like a nostalgic medley of old and new: strummed, plucked, and bowed away on cello and guitar, and propped up on an old timey spine of three part harmony.

You say take my hand it’s not very far
Believe Believe, I choose to be happy
Relief, relief, relief....

Track Name: It's in a Dream!
Give me a call when you're
Down on your luck, when you're
Out on the town
When in a dream

Whistle high and low, dear I'm
Here day and night, dear I'm
Leavin' you a lightswitch
On your pillow

It's in a dream, I call your name!
It's in a dream, you say the same!

Oh!

I'm gettin old in this
House on a hill, I've grown
Webs between my toes
While I've been asleep

and I'm getting cold with the
Windows all shut, but the
Winds from outside
Keep on creepin up to me

It's in a dream, I call your name!
It's in a dream, you say the same...

*whistles*

Give me a smile when you're
Down on your knees, when you've
Fallen from Grace,
Like you fell in love with me

Picture me alone, and I'm
Takin all my time, and I'm
Sighin to myself
Even though you're right in front of me!!

It's in a dream, I call your name!
It's in a dream, you said the same...

Was it in a goddam dream? I called your name
Oh it's in a dream, you said the same...

Track Name: Home (live)
Well you're back home now, I don't know what to say
Could try to recount all the long lonely days
But we've got hours, and plans on our plates
So all I can say is
My home is back home,
My home is back home and here to stay!

Don't you give it a reason, don't you give it a word
There isn't a teacher, here to see what we've learned
And it's all behind us, yeah it's all the same
Cause my home is back home,
My home is back home,
My home is back home, and here to stay!

Oh-oh-oh-Aaaaaaah

Lonesome and lightless how my days did go by
Now I'm blinded by brightness, because days follow nights
Darkness is over, my heart remains
Cause my home is back home
My home is back home
My home is back home, and here to stay!
