about

The first single from Matt Katsis' upcoming EP titled 'As The River Runs' which is scheduled for mid-late 2017 release.

Matt revisited his original live acoustic recording for ‘Need You Here’, after his travels through the US and spending time in the southern states. The Americana/Alt Country influence is definitely something he had brought back with him, adding the comforting feeling of ‘being home’.

Matt says,

“ The bare bones of the song and lyrics came about in reflection; it’s about wising up and beginning to see the world a little differently as we get older. and realizing the gratitude felt that comes from having that special someone by your side through thick and thin to share life’s experiences”.

The film clip for ‘Need You Here’ unfurls footage captured during Matt’s time travelling through California, Arizona and Utah back in 2014 edited together by Graeme Passmore alongside filming, set around Byron Bay.

LYRICS

If the time comes will I be ready
So far I’ve been taking it steady
Soon things looking be looking like they're getting a little heavy

And if I said I’m wretched will the tears keep rolling down
Even with the warmth of the fire, this heart dreary n dire
You’re all it takes to brighten up the moonlight

You bail me out when I’m feeling stuck
In the confines of my mind, sometimes it’s hard to shine
So what now we’re getting older, soon we will leave this town

A world unknown we’ll jump in two feet first,
Your hand in mine, can’t let the seasons pass you by
A smile’s all it takes to know what’s at stake

Stay, we’ll say what we’ve got to say
Need you,
Stay, these kind of days can’t compare
Need you, here not there

I know there’s no such luck as forever
We can build a life, enjoy the simple things together
Seeking new horizons, gonna knock this old one down

It’s been a long night, now about to take flight
As I Lay my head under the stars
Thinking of the day
You’d say you’d stay

My head pounding now, feeling worn-out now
No rehearsal got to live the life you want to live
Not thinking back to what could of been

Stay, we’ll say what we’ve got to say
Need you,
Stay, these kind of days can’t compare
Need you..

Stay, we’ll say what we’ve got to say
Need you,
Stay, these kind of days can’t compare
Need you, here not there
