 ‘If You Could See Me Now’ was written in memory of Danny O’Donoghue’s late father who passed away on Valentine’s Day in 2008.
The band name was inspired by the time they spent living in LA.
Apparently, everyone was always talking about film scripts, and the pair would often joke and say, ‘What’s the script?’ instead of, ‘What’s up?’

Hall of Fame

Length: 3:22

Release: 2012

Opening Lyrics:

Yeah, you can be the greatest, you can be the best
You can be the King Kong bangin’ on your chest
You can beat the world, you can beat the war
You can talk to God, go bangin’ on his door
You can throw your hands up, you can beat the clock (Yeah)
You can move a mountain, you can break rocks
Some will call it practice, some will call it luck
But either way you’re going to the history book
Standin’ in the Hall of Fame (Yeah)
And the world’s gonna know your name (Yeah)
‘Cause you burn with the brightest flame (Yeah)
And the world’s gonna know your name (Yeah)
And you’ll be on the walls of the Hall of Fame


Length: 4:21

Release: 2009

Opening Lyrics:

I’m still alive but I’m barely breathing
Just prayin’ to a God that I don’t believe in
‘Cause I got time while she got freedom
‘Cause when a heart breaks no it don’t break even
Her best days will be some of my worst
She finally met a man that’s gonna put her first
While I’m wide awake she’s no trouble sleeping
‘Cause when a heart breaks no it don’t break even, even, no
What am I supposed to do when the best part of me was always you? And
What am I supposed to say when I’m all choked up and you’re OK?
I’m falling to pieces, yeah
I’m falling to pieces
They say bad things happen for a reason
But no wise words gonna stop the bleeding
‘Cause she’s moved on while I’m still grieving
And when a heart breaks no it don’t break even, even, no


Length: 4:05

Release: 2014

Opening Lyrics:

All the life she has seen
All the meaner side of me
They took away the prophet’s dream
For a profit on the street
Now she’s stronger than you know
A heart of steel starts to grow
All his life he’s been told
He’ll be nothing when he’s old
All the kicks and all the blows
He won’t ever let it show
‘Cause he’s stronger than you know
A heart of steel starts to grow
When you’ve been fighting for it all your life
You’ve been struggling to make things right
That’s how a superhero learns to fly
Every day, every hour, turn the pain into power

The Man Who Can’t Be Moved

Length: 4:01

Release: 2009

Opening Lyrics:

Going back to the corner where I first saw you
Gonna camp in my sleeping bag I’m not gonna move
Got some words on cardboard, got your picture in my hand
Saying, “If you see this girl can you tell her where I am?”
Some try to hand me money, they don’t understand
I’m not broke – I’m just a broken-hearted man
I know it makes no sense but what else can I do?
How can I move on when I’m still in love with you?
‘Cause if one day you wake up and find that you’re missing me
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be
Thinking maybe you’ll come back here to the place that we’d meet
And you’ll see me waiting for you on the corner of the street

For the First Time

Length: 4:12

Release: 2010

Opening Lyrics:

She’s all laid up in bed with a broken heart
While I’m drinking Jack, all alone in my local bar
And we don’t know how, how we got into this mad situation
Only doing things out of frustration
Trying to make it work, but, man, these times are hard
She needs me now, but I can’t seem to find the time
I got a new job now on the unemployment line
And we don’t know how, how we got into this mess, is it God’s test?
Someone help us ’cause we’re doing our best
Trying to make it work, but, man, these times are hard
But we’re gonna start by
Drinking old cheap bottles of wine
Shit talking up all night
Saying things we haven’t for a while, a while, yeah
We’re smiling, but we’re close to tears, even after all these years
We just now got the feeling that we’re meeting
For the first time
