about

The Black, Black Rose EP... Sometimes music is not made for the audience that's normally tuned in, sometimes it's all for self, for closure, or perhaps a place to reflect. This deeply personal EP release from Edinburgh based Werd is exactly that. Containing remix's of popular mainstream tracks as well as spoken word poetry, its apparent this release is somewhat carefree, yet comes straight from the heart.

EP Dedicated to L.K.
EP name influenced from the work of Robert Burns.
Promotional use only. Not for sale or public airplay.

Track Name: Intro
[Werd]
I can't sing,
I can't play guitar,
But I can write a little bit,
Listen...
Track Name: Where Did All The Love Go
[Werd]
Alright go,
Where'd did the love go? (Oh)

This could be our little love song
I done wrong, so now when the loves gone
This could be my song to feel sorry
Or pick myself up and say don't worry
Old story, girl love guy
Guy lies, he makes her cry
Girl tries, he lets love die
Then she's gone, and he see's why
Why, we hate who we love
Because it blocks out what occurs
When you love so much need hate to purge
When we stop loving what you can't have

[Kasabian]
What do we become
Trying to kill each other?
You're faking it son
Gonna get you tonight
I suck another breath
To the hearts of the Revolution
'Cos it still ain't right
Where did all the love go?
I don't know, I don't know
[I bet you can't see it]
Where did all the love go?
I don't know, I don't know
[I bet you can't see it]

[Werd]
SOS, Auld Reekie, Ok go,
Ok back again my foot taps like the heartbeat can't pretend
That it beats for you and the love you send
Though love dried up, my love wont end
Love, what a funny word
Sounds so absurd when placed with wurd,
Werd, heard, I'm not good enough
But I'll still try I'm a stupid one
Hun, run all that you want
Because me getting you that's not the point
It's me being true let thoughts anoint
So I can let it out, get it all now?
How does it feel when the feelings gone
And ice on your heart just starts to form
Do you live with the fact you did wrong
Or notice any rose, all has thorns (yeah)
I'm a prick for that (yeah)
What I did in the past (heard)
You done moved on fast
So I've some nerve for doing these tracks (well)
I'll say it once
I was one (uh)
And all the above
Truth is mate, can't handle love

[Kasabian]
The rivers on the pavement
Are flowing now with blood
The children of the future
Are drowning in the flood
Where did all the love go?
Now I don't know why
I don't know why

[Werd]
Aw you know my heid is spinning
Never to heid to the ways of sinning
Wasn't that good at guitar or singing
So the best a'l ever do. You. [x3]

Listen, the black, black rose EP
Released on Sons of Scotland SOS
My name’s Drew Devine (Werd).


[Kasabian]
In this social chaos
There's violence in the air
Gotta keep your wits about you
Be careful not to stare
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Track Name: Madness
[Werd]
His names Werd and his heads in a pickle
Maybe heard him a lil he's been fickle since little
He's been writing out raps compensate for the brittle
And escape all he hates so that they can be invisible
His own principles fate sticks with him still
Dismissive of his lyrics after written being literal
Sorry he's away with it
It’s her that made him do it with
A touch of frustration and waiting on a change n shit
Aw it f*cking takes the piss - I am just half that
Half pissed half cut with a joint half sparked
I try and keep control...

[Werd]
You need me just bringing that speech
You need Auld Reekie patter with a rapper on beats
You need real music mate you don't see on TV
You need to say hidden thoughts so we can achieve
Turn on your radio
Nah f*ck it - Turn it off
Fear is your only God on the radio
But here I got aiming for the top
But not cause I want it cause really it's all I got
I’ve been living since 11 n listened to hip-hop
My prescription for decisions that’s sinning and what knots
Now I’m bringing to fruition volition and new thoughts
Just listen my decision is taking what I want
You fakers can tag on the building I build strong
The foundation that I laid when played my first song
When I found my home,
When some kind of madness...

[Werd]
I think you need honesty
Right now, I think I lost you mate
As I write like rappers aint supposed to do
Though it’s tight get none, monastery
I feel like that their picking on me
Like a puppet off strings just fell before ye
Guitar weeps, for a gentle nobody
Never feel at home, vagabond, same old story
But you changed me
How I feel lately
Crazy, it’s like...
Track Name: Untitled (Poem)
Imagine the only girl you ever loved, got married yesterday,
And you watched your whole existence as it starts to fade away,
Now if time is of the essence, and its all about the present,
Then why wont my past just go away?

And it’s not for a girl, a certain one, for everyone and anyone,
Who watched their beating heart just fade to grey.
Track Name: Jar of Hearts ft Elizabeth Currie
[Werd]
I guess it’s that time again
Had a little too much wine again
Phoned you and I cant pretend
That a didn't say a that
Now we only friends (F*ck)
I'm the only one to blame though
That's me with my f*cked up ego
So now we see other people
And now I compare them to you
See what I've lost its come back to haunt me
There's no way I could ever say sorry
What I've done, there's no taking back
See something else broke, when I broke you're heart

[Elizabeth Currie]
And who do you think you are
Running 'round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don't come back for me
Who do you think you are

[Werd]
Is it better to have love and lost,
Than to have never had no love at all?
And if you can, you fooled me its true
I scarred myself, when I scarred you
And I know, I know that I'm wrong
Me and you could have went so strong
So a guess that I wrote this song
Just to say that I miss you

[Elizabeth Currie]
I've learned to live half alive
And now you want me one more time

And who do you think you are
Running 'round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don't come back for me
Who do you think you are

[Werd]
Listen, this is not a song that is easy when writing
Nor taken lightly when getting on the mic and
Letting you hear what's inside what I'm finding
Day in, day out, such a struggle no pride in
Hiding or fighting or lying, self doubt
So here's an example of letting it out
For some kind of closure, to see what is next
So you can throw a stone, but I use it to step
Move on with a passion for rapping you know
But it’s also distraction from feeling so low
(I'm solo)

[Elizabeth Currie]
And who do you think you are
Running 'round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
Don't come back for me
Don't come back at all

Who do you think you are?
Running 'round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart

You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
Don't come back for me
Don't come back at all

Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
