Eight Days of Autumn Melbourne, Australia

Pop-Punk band from the South-eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Our debut EP "Here's to First Time Failure" is available for free download!
Eight Days of Autumn are just a group of mates who hang out, make stupid ignorant comments about the happenings around them and just relish in the company of friends.
Our music is basically a bi-product of our shenanigans.

Track Name: Short Sleeve Shirts Under Long Sleeve Shirts Under Short Sleeve Shirts
I’m putting pen to paper, but nothing seems to flow
Broken lines and blank verse, that’s how it always goes. I wanna write a song to make all your voices heard We’ll take the stage and win your hearts, word by fucking word. You’ll sing along as we play our songs, we’ll stretch our wings so far, We’re the boys who stand for you, so get up off the ground.

It’s straining on our hearts, it’s straining on our minds
We’re crawling through the dark and stepping over lines I’m running from the danger that’s closing in behind We’re the boys who play it loud, we'll do it every time

You’ve gotta give back what you’ve taken and make the balance right If they catch me at a standstill they’ll throw me to the light We’ll sing about what you believe, we’re gonna set things right, So hit the lights and turn it up, we’ll play into the night You’ll sing along as we play our songs, we’ll stretch our wings so far, We’re the boys who stand for you, so get up off the ground. Get up off the ground

It’s straining on our hearts, it’s straining on our minds We’re falling through the dark and stepping over lines I’m running from the danger that’s closing in behind We’re the boys who play it loud, we’ll do it every time
Track Name: Houston Can't Solve Your Problems For You
I’m running out of things to say, will you please make this bullshit go away Cause its driving me insane. I’m trying to keep my head on straight, but my teenage wisdom’s telling me, I’m already too late, yea I’m already too late

So cut me down now, I’ve been up here for hours Say, where you going? You can’t just leave me here, I’m all alone, I’m all alone now Let’s take a break now, let’s get ourselves together You left me broken, don’t you run away from me You’re all for show

I think I’ll make it alone from here, I’m better off alone!

We’re running out of games to play, it’s too bad cause I’d beat you all the same Now you’re saving me the pain
So turn a blind eye, I’m sick of your surveillance No I can’t be trusted, don’t you throw your life away I’m all alone

And it’s taking its toll on me, don’t try and keep me here!

I’m running out of things to do today I’m sitting all alone, just waiting for her call I’m flipping through my magazines and reminiscing memories Why can’t I make this bullshit go away

Well now that you’ve thrown me away, I don’t give a shit what you say And after all that you did, I’ll take my chances my dear

I think I’ll make it alone from here, I’m better off alone!

Don’t you tell me how to live my life, I’m gonna break free from your restraints Who are you to tell me what to do? I know who I am
Track Name: Move On (This May Be Your Last Chance)
This time I’m not doing this for you, it’s for me, you wasted your chance. I’m gonna leave this behind, I’ve seen through your eyes, now I see And this is the last time This hurts me more than you know, it’s time to say goodbye. I know now, you weren’t really worth it at all.

We’re movin’ on, on from the heartbreak. So let’s move away, away from this time in our lives Away from the ground to the broken skyline.

It’s too late to fix these mistakes, there’s no forgive and forget This hurts me more than you know, it’s time to say goodbye.

We’re movin’ on, on from the heartbreak.
So let’s move away, away from this time in our lives
Away from the ground to the broken skyline.
Track Name: Lifelines and Deathbeds
I’m sick of falling, there’s better things in life, I cannot see And to pick myself an escape, you’re killing me And I can’t find a way to see the stars And you will never be alive

The stars fall around me in circles, The waves sweep me off of my feet Throw me a line not an anchor I’m drowning in bittersweet

Lifelines and deathbeds, they’re all the future is for me
And to find myself an escape, there’s a war within me
And I can’t find a way to see the stars
And you will never be alive

The stars fall around me in circles,
The waves sweep me off of my feet
Throw me a line not an anchor
I’m drowning in this, I’m drowning in bittersweet

The stars fall around me in circles,
The waves sweep me off of my feet
Throw me a line not an anchor
I’m drowning in this, I’m drowning in bittersweet

You’re better off stumbling for a truth that doesn’t exist
Like the sun and the moon
We’re different in every way, you search in the night
But I hide in the day

The stars fall around me in circles,
The waves sweep me off of my feet
Throw me a line not an anchor
I’m drowning in this, I’m drowning in bittersweet

Won’t you pull me up, won’t you pull me up out of this
Track Name: People Can Fly
He sits alone, her mind’s a mess
Her words spill into heartache, his mind into a wreck
He can’t go home, she’s been away so long
How much more can he withstand, can’t find where she belongs

Let’s chase this writing on the wall, she pulls his heart until he falls
Into her arms.
These hearts, the hands, these matching scars, he pulls her close beneath the stars
Into his arms.

Lengthening the night, pushing back the dawn

We’ll stand above the rest with our hearts outside our chest, woah
The line was drawn in blood, from your bleeding hand,
on you broken heart.

Two minds alike, these tears don’t fall
They’re trying to walk the fine line but the world wants them to crawl,
Who cares for writing on the wall, she learnt to fly, he learnt to fall
Into her arms
We’ll shout our names into the sky and sing these words until we die
Until we die!

Lengthening the night, pushing back the dawn

We’ll stand above the rest with our hearts outside our chest, woah
The line was drawn in blood, from your bleeding hand,
on you broken heart.

We’ll stand above the rest with our hearts outside our chest, woah
