about

'Way Back In' by The Sunday Sessions is the debut album by an international group of musicians who came from Germany, Ireland, Scotland and South Africa to meet by chance with a local Pole in Krakow, Poland. One day we decided to meet at an apartment and record some music. More people came than expected. More importantly, one song came to life, which resulted in the forming of a songwriting collective. This happened on a Sunday, hence the name. At each Sunday meeting at other bandmates' apartments, more songs came together quite quickly. The Sunday Sessions also began playing gigs which enabled us to develop as a band and finally resulted in the decision to put together an album. This album was recorded by Robert Kapp in Krakow, June 2010 and subsequently mixed in Germany. It was mastered in Germany by Jan Schrecker. We have put ourselves into these songs and they have given us a lot of joy. We hope this is reflected in this music and the feelings that it produces with each listen.

Track Name: Stół
It sits here all alone but is always there to lean on when I need some time out from the road
Always silent but always proud it takes a hit and it gives it back and wears the marks like drops of rain

You will see it shine
You will see it scratch but underneath stories will remain
You can’t hear it talk
If this were only true
It could talk a library

When settling down for a little while or out for the very last one
While ready to prove you’re right and someone else’s wrong
You can count on it to last and never strike an answer back

You will see it shine
You will see it scratch but underneath stories will remain
You can’t hear it talk
If this were only true
It could talk a library

It seems the quiet type that doesn’t mind being moved around
When new arrivals take their place
But always aware of changing styles to take away its pride of place and send it back to where it came

You will see it shine
You will see it scratch but underneath stories will remain
You can’t hear it talk
If this were only true
It could talk a library
Track Name: Wake Me Up
I need you as the means to pull through
I need you to restore and make new

Wake me up in the morning and tell me it’s time to rise
And without any warning but the reason you’re giving is sound

I need you to restore and make new

Now you see my belongings and take them and burn them to dust
There’s a moment of anger but it changes to see what I must

In the times when the loneliness comes up you face it and show
That it won’t grab a hold of the darkness and let it all grow

I need you to give back what I give you
Track Name: Unconditional
Best friends now, just as then
When you were 24 and I was ten
It never mattered to us about the age
Cause even then we were on the same page

His wedding ring that I found in that cup
I asked you if I could have it just as you were breakin' up
You just smiled and said that if any one else
Had asked you that you would have damned them all to hell

And that's how I know that you love me
Cause even when I do things wrong
You always forgive

I used to come to your house all the time
We'd smoke and talk while the kettle worked overtime
Monopoly and Scrabble were our favourite games
You'd never win but you like to play me all the same

I'd build hotels while you went back to Old Kent Road
Do not collect 200, do not pass go
And then you'd struggle for an A or an O
And I would put my X on your triple letter score

And that's how I know that you love me
Cause even when I'm losing
I always win with you

That's unconditional
That's unconditional
That's unconditional love

And I'm sorry that I had to go away
But I think about you every single day
It's not easy but on the other hand
It goes to show that you really understand

And I want you to know that I love you
Cause even though it's different now
I still feel the same

That's unconditional
That's unconditional
That's unconditional love

That's unconditional
That's unconditional
That's unconditional love
Track Name: Good Goodbye
I recall your eyes
I recall a sniff that doesn’t fool me much at all
Oh I’ll get you back –
Don’t you worry baby I’ll get you back here in
the end:
With a light brown flick –
a light brown curse at ends

you could never fool me much I always did that for myself
you could always count on making outward jokes and little else
you could never fool me much I always did that for myself
you could always count on making outward jokes and little else

I want your arms ‘round my waist
But that’s never quite the same as a good goodbye
You can never leave this place – I’ll see you every day in the autumn wastes
The leaves as brown as your eyes,
With a sparkle and a light that outshines itself

And you’ll out-smile me now
Track Name: Ballad of a Colourblind Artist
I met you walking down the street
Where I was you and you were me
You said you’d maybe like to see me ‘round
And break new ground

You said your sister is an artiste
With colours set to start a trend
Her canvas seemed to start out black
With brushstrokes red
----------------------------
Don’t think you know
Nothing’s better than it ever was before
Don’t think you know
Nothing’s better than it ever was before
-------------------------
She went out once to buy some thread
To tie up all her loose ends
Her use of yellow was said to have a sense
Of Monet’s dread

She has exhibits ‘round the world
Entitled ‘Green’ with scenes of trees
She told a critic that her medium was brown
But we see blue
---------------------------
---------------------------
She has a complex sense of light
She shadows different shades of white
She did a detail piece of Van Gough’s Starry Night
And painted red

She once started quite a scene
The suited man with apple green
But the apple now is coloured differently
A dark maroon [Davie’s rendition: ‘burgundy’]
---------------------------
---------------------------
I said again, ‘I’ll see you ‘round’
When you asked, ‘what happens next?’
As you walked away I glanced down at your shoes
They’re platform red

And you smiled back sweet and said,
‘Yes, blue really is my scene’
And the answer became clear –
Well, clear to me..
---------------------------

Track Name: Way Back In
People walking round in the city’s streets with their heads up in the air
Drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes with no certain place to be

You went somewhere to find your back again

Take a photograph it will make it last then you can say where you have been
Changing points of view reassures the senses and gives more purpose to your days

You went somewhere to find your way back again
Track Name: What Other People Do
I want to take a walk with yourself in tow
I want to do what other people do
To hear the sounds of rustling leaves
As the water ripples right on past
If trees could talk, I’m sure they could tell a lot and give a remedy
But I’m not sure if it would work when the cause is not really clear

There’s never too much when you haven’t got enough of air to breathe

If I had the chances I’d be a Romantic but somehow you never liked that stance

The air has changed the mist to rain which brings us now to being back indoors
No longer clear, no longer near, I take a seat and stare at the TV.
I want to take a walk with yourself in tow
I want to do what other people do
To hear the sounds of rustling leaves
As the water ripples right on past
Track Name: Can-Do Man
He's a can-do man
He doesn't contemplate disaster
Fate makes its way into every second of the day
And he gives it a smile and a handshake of Understanding
And goes on its way
Feeling lighter than the air

Of course he falls down
He falls down
Hard on the ground
And he picks himself up, himself up again
And he's very fond of telling you
That every day is a miracle
There is no argument to convince him that it's Otherwise
But does he sleep so well at night?
Does he sleep so well at night?

He's a thumbs up man
Opportunity is king
Life has no barriers
Obstacles don't mean a thing
But in the early hours
A nod of understanding
And when the veil falls down
a moment of doubt

Of course he falls down
He falls down
Hard on the ground
And he picks himself up, himself up again
And he's very fond of telling you
that every day is a miracle
There is no argument to convince him that it's otherwise
But does he sleep so well at night?
Does he sleep so well at night?
