Silverlode is a indie rock and folk band from Leeds, UK.

We are an folk band in the broadest sense of the word; self-taught musical ruffians who play to our own traditions; we play heavy and we play softly; we are into aggressive whimsey and that kind of thing.

Track Name: Strangers (Album Version)
After the trial came the fire...
I took it on the chin as best I could
I am now working on the lock to the vault in my mind
Like a stately home abandoned to the vines

She left me in the summertime
Walked wounded into autumn, fit to die
But I barred the windows against the winter that began ---
Tried to do my penance quietly but I'm not that kind of man

Now, as strangers we meet in the night
As strangers we meet in another life
As strangers, we are spared the strife
I was a fool to wish it any other way

After the grief comes repair....
Didn’t know everything was temporary
Time will work its weight on all plans in the end
Also didn’t realise my broken heart would mend

Still, what we did will never change
Those memories will never fade
The lives we truly touch, they are few and far between
And I, I guess you recognise your fingerprints on me

But as strangers we meet in the night
As strangers we meet in another life
As strangers, we are spared the strife
I was a fool to wish it any other way

I don't want to die in a place where I am blind
I don't know why I can't leave you behind
The means to damn the lovers throughout time
You will burn and I will burn tonight

As strangers we meet in the night
There are strangers walking up and down my life
And strangers in the background all the time
I was a fool to wish it any other way
I was a fool to wish it any other way
I was a fool to wish it any other way
Track Name: Paris In The Future (The Summer Of Fourteen Version)
No one ever said that I would see her again.
Somewhere. Later. Further down the line.
In Paris. In the future. In fifteen years time.

No one ever specified our paths might cross again.
Not here. Or elsewhere. On a rainy Tuesday night.
In Paris. In the future. In the hazy half-light.

And I'm thinking
Damn you Coincidence!
Damn this fatal find!
Oh, damn you Lady Luck!
Damn my mind.

Paris in the future

Last time we were met I do recall you came to say,
Goodbye. So long. Then you were on your way.
You shocked me. Surprised me. I didn't see the change.

After all these years I never thought we'd meet again.
Not here. Or elsewhere. Or that I'd still feel the same.
In Paris. In the future. In this haphazard way.

So I'm thinking
Damn you Coincidence!
Damn this fatal find!
Oh, damn you Lady Luck!
Strike me blind.

Paris in the future

Stood mute upon the station platform, I saw you in the crowd
I knew it was you that instant as my heart began to beat aloud
But never glancing sideways, your silhouetted frame
Looked so glamorous in the moonlight as you gracefully walked away

Paris in the future
