When You Feel Like Crying

from by Joe Hurley & Rogue's March

about

"On NEVER FEAR, you'll find jig-rockers like "A Rose is God's autograph"; poignant ballads, such as the glimpse of an 11-year-old's world in a dysfunctional family in "When You Feel Like Crying", rousing Grecian Folk tempos on 'Whispering Salvation" and an unusual bent to songs like "I'm in Love (but Not With You)" and the cheerfully preposterous notion of a bleary 8am mind in 'I Wish My Wife Was A Country Singer ' "

WOODSTOCK TIMES

lyrics

'When You Feel Like Crying' (Hurley/Roth)

John throws his books in his satchel
As he bicycles down the footpath to school
Where the joke is in French class, he daydreams of football
Il joue la foule
So when the teacher asks the questions
He never gets it right
He doesn't hear the laughs of his classmates
Only hears the screams of last night

Sunday comes slowly
Yeah but you win 3-1
With the twists and the turns and the sliding tackle burns
You're like Bestie on the run
But you hide in the garden,
Beaneath the weeping willow tree
Wondering where your father is
Will your mother be too drunk for tea

When you feel like crying
When you think you cant go on
Just think of all the goals you will score
When you feel like dying
When you just want to close your eyes
Just picture the crowds, the songs, the roar

You're first awake with the fog in the morning
And the dog lays asleep on your bed
Your sister warns you there's broken glass by the window
Your mother slipped, cut open her head
Well Monday's your birthday
You're eleven years old
You blow out the candles
Wishing secrets would never be told

When you feel like crying
When you think you cant go on
Just think of all the goals you will score
When you feel like dying
When you just want to close your eyes
Just picture the crowds, the songs, the roar

When you feel like dying
When you just want to close your eyes
Remember you're a captain, like Bobby Moore

REVIEWS of 'NEVER FEAR'

---------------------------------
"The songs are great, suggesting the finest moments of The Mekons "

CMJ MAGAZINE 'Jackpot'

"Joe Hurley is one of N.Y.'s most entertaining frontmen. His distinctive vocals can be raucous as all get-out, and as sorrowful as a baritone can be"

VILLAGE VOICE

"Celtic-tinged R & R with unshakable pop hooks, mixing guitars & keyboards with mandolin & tin whistle, Rogue's March celebrate drinking, depression, and strife, with songs thickly coated in black humor.
"Shut Up and Drink" and "Amsterdam Mistress" (which rhymes "pints of guinness" with "lots of slow kisses" ) make for perfect St Patrick's Day wallowing"

NEW YORK TIMES

"Rogue's March are a fantastic band who have managed to capture the same excitement they create during a show in a tight, raw, studio recording, NEVER FEAR. This 14 song collection is an exuberant package featuring a heap of memorable music."

NEW YORK POST 'CD Of the Week'

"Musically tight & hugely entertaining, Rogue's March play an inspired hybrid of C&W, Irish Trad,and R & R. 'NEVER FEAR' showcases songs such as "Joyriding", which is as poignant and reckless as anything this side of the Stones' "Gimme Shelter", and "I'm In Love (But Not With You)" which recalls the turn on a dime riffs of Jam era punk. "Amsterdam Mistress" remains one of the most evocative ballads ever penned"
