Fourth Of July​/​Please Don't - Single

by Zoo Brother




Fourth Of July & Please Don't - Single : Released November 12th 2013. Fourth of July has been floating around on the internet as a lo-fi unmixed demo from Zoo Brother (formerly Oli Oli Oxen Free) for a year. It has been handed down from friend to friend, concert to concert (guerrilla style marketing like that). We are now happy to be releasing a polished version of Fourth Of July and a brand new B-side called 'Please Don't'. Hope you all enjoy.

Track Name: Fourth Of July
I'll never smoke another joint without you
I know I won't another phase without you
I'll never go another day without you
I know I won't another game without you

I'll never choke and scare myself without you
I know I won't the moments I spend without
I'll never go and be another boy who lost you
I know I won't another day behind you
Track Name: Please Don't
How do I tell her you're all I think about
When you are not around, I wish you were around
How do I show her I'd rip my heart to shreds
just to get her in my bed and erase her from my head

I never seem to break out of these same old scenes
when i'm at home I just wish you'd come back to me
I think about this all the time and everybody knows
If there's one thing I could ask, only one thing, please don't

Another reason I don't try when your around
Because she's in town getting all about
I'd live without you to make your life a hell
As long as your allowed to keep following me around
