about

This is a 6 song EP from Joel Eckels and the Wreckards recorded in early 2011. Aside from using a couple of the original tracks from the "Dunsmuir sessions" and tracking vocals with Chris Fuhrman, we recorded everything ourselves for this one. All of the rhythm and guitar tracks were recorded live in full takes.

"Gogo Nikki, the Spy" is the first song that the band has written together from scratch.

Track Name: Bad Love
BAD LOVE

Don’t know how long I can hold on
You keep Breaking my heart
And I keep writing songs
You’re no good for me
And I can’t live in misery
Baby I just wont

Don’t be afraid, it’s a coming of age
If you had any sense, you’d learn from your mistakes
But you don’t know, cuz you don’t try
Ain’t nothing changed, but you wonder why
I’m not running back this time

Don’t know how long I can hold on
If it’s just bad love
I’m better off alone

Can’t live in this hell
Gotta look out for myself
You’ll feel what you’ve lost
When it’s you and no one else
So, I’m getting out, while I have my pride
I’m stepping off of this lonely ride
Such a shame I have to say goodbye

Don’t know how long I can hold on
Don’t know how I keep holding on
Don’t know how come I keep writing songs
You’re just bad girl,
Should’ve known it all along
Tell me I’m wrong
Tell me I’m wrong
Don’t know how long I can hold on
If it’s just bad love
If it’s just bad, bad, bad, bad love
I’m better off alone
Track Name: Gogo Nikki, the Spy
GOGO NIKKI, THE SPY

She’s assigned to remind you that love is free
About as beautiful as can be
I think she’s what I need but I might be mistaken

She’s the type of girl that’s had a broken heart
Don’t know where this will go
should we stop before we start
I know that we’re both scarred
But my heart is achin’

CHORUS:
She sings when she talks
Shakes it when she walks
She’ll bring you back to life when it was lost

Gleaming in the mirrorball light
She’ll dance to your reflection all night
There’s something ‘bout the groove that feels right and I’m awaken

Yeah, the story’s something deep behind her eyes
My fear’s got me convinced that she’s a spy
I can’t find a trace or any reason why

Chorus

She’s assigned to remind you that love is free
About as beautiful as can be
I think she’s what I need but I might be mistaken
Track Name: Mama
Mama
Lyrics by Joel Eckels

It don’t take a lot of money
Just takes a lot of love
I do my best to stay funny
But some times I’ve just had enough
I enjoy the run-around, the big town, the higher ground
But there’s days it just gets me down

Mama, don’t worry about your boy, no
Mama don’t worry no more

This life is my invention
You’re where I come from
Living off inspiration
I learned to take things as they come
You always believed in me
Even when I’d leave
and you’d never know if you’d ever see me again

Mama, don’t worry about your boy, no
Mama don’t worry no more

I know you don’t want to see me lonely
Or always one foot out the door
But, I’ll find myself a good one
I’ve been down this road before

Mama don’t worry about your boy, no
Mama don’t worry no more
Track Name: The Trouble
THE TROUBLE

So, what’s the solution?
Do I listen to my heart or my head?
I can’t tell the difference,
Guess I’m a fool to every word that you said

Some people think that they know
I think that they don’t
There’s somethin’ bout you girl
Something beautiful that you never show

They call you Trouble
I don’t believe that’s true
Trouble
I believe the trouble is you

The scene of the crime
Was it your fault or mine?
I can take the blame
If it’s you, girl, you better do the same

I ain’t goin’ down for you today
So just tell it to me straight
Is it true love or lies behind that gleam in your eyes
Are you evil or are you just afraid?

Are you just Trouble?
I can’t believe that it’s true
Trouble
somethin’ tells me that the trouble is you

So, baby, put up a fight
Or just get out of my life
If you choose to walk away
Then I guess I’d have to say they were right

You must be Trouble
And I’ve got too much to lose
Trouble
I don’t want no trouble, but the trouble is you
I’m in love with trouble and the trouble is you
Track Name: Good is All Gone
GOOD IS ALL GONE

Oh no, where did the sun go?
Seems so far away
Used to feel so close
You have enough of our good love
I guess it faded away
Why’d we have to change

CHORUS
Don’t say that the good is all gone
And that it’s time to move on
You can take what you want
But don’t let it go
Don’t believe that it’s true
There’s still good in you
Don’t say that the good is all gone
And leave me alone

Never felt nothin’ so hard
Yeah, I’m afraid of the dark
If that’s how it’s gonna be
I love you woman, gonna set you free
What’ve you got to say?
You gonna slay me like you did yesterday?
What’ve you got to say?
I’m gonna take all I can take

CHORUS

Don’t leave me alone
Don’t you know, baby, so good
Don’t you go, baby, so good

CHORUS

I don’t believe that it’s true
Girl, I’m still in love with you
Don’t say that the good is all gone
And leave me alone

Oh no, where did the sun go?
Track Name: Sing Me Something Beautiful
SING ME SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL

I know you’ve got it going on
Don’t think that I don’t
I know every time you sing that song
Just why you wrote it

Sing me something beautiful
Make me want to take you home
Sing me something beautiful
Make me feel like I am not alone

You got through to me
So many times before, you said you wanted more
I just wasn’t listening
You got through to me
If I could only find the words

I’d sing you something beautiful
To make you want to take me home
I’d sing you something beautiful
To make you feel like you are never,
Never alone

I feel like you should write this verse
‘Cause I’m not sure where it goes (edit)
We’ve come to the part we’ve not rehearsed
I guess we’ve got to let it flow

Let’s sing something beautiful
To make us feel like we are not alone
Let’s sing something beautiful
Make me feel like we are not alone
Wait, if you go, I’ll just sit here all alone
With all the fears staring over my shoulder
Baby, please come home
