about

Work on Feel the Arrow debut album begun after the band received excellent compliments at the Rat bandova (War of the Bands) TV show at OBN TV (Sarajevo, Bosnia) from the judges who are established rock musicians: Zele Lipovača (guitarist of Divlje jagode) and Sejo Saxon (guitarist of Zabranjeno pušenje). First period was spent on writing the songs polishing the lyrics and arrangements by testing some of the songs at various gigs. The second phase was recording demos of all the songs and critical evaluation resulting in several improvements. The studio was finally booked in December 2012 and the album was finished in August 2013.
The debut album that was released on 3th December 2013 – 8 years since band begun playing – is composed of 12 tracks written in the years 2010 – 2012 with the exception of Hit the Streets which has already appeared on Hit the Streets demo, but the band felt the song deserves re-recording. The album received excellent reviews and can be also bought from CD Baby and all major digital music distribution sites as a physical CD or as MP3 download.

Track Name: Tonight We Rock 'n' Roll
(M. Predanič / M. Predanič)

I don’t need no money
Money can’t soothe my soul
And I can do without you honey
I’ve got my rock’n roll
Some people choose nice’n easy dance
Let them go ahead let them stay in bed
But I know there ain’t no second chance
So I’ll sleep when I’m dead sleep when I’m dead

Ain’t got the time to be standin’ around
So many places to go
Maybe someday when I’m grey I’ll have nothin’ to say
But tonight we got a show
Yeah tonight we rock ‘n’ roll

Some might say I’m unkind
Well I ain’t your normal family guy
The only cats that are on my mind
Taste like cherry pie
Some people choose nice’n easy dance
Let them go ahead let them stay in bed
But I know there ain’t no second chance
So I’ll sleep when I’m dead sleep when I’m dead

Chorus

So baby tonight let your fantasies unwind
I’ve got what you need I’ll never let you stay behind
These are the moments we’ll treasure all ‘till the end
So don’t hold back my friend don’t you ever hold back

Chorus

Tonight we rock
Tonight we roll
Tonight we rock ‘n’ roll
Track Name: Have a Little Love
(M. Predanič / M. Predanič)

Hey little darling
What you’re cryin’ for
Did he left you out there
Did he show you the door
Hey little sister
You got no one to call
Seems when you think you know someone
You know nothing at all

But if you choose the sorrow
To guide you all the way
You won’t find tomorrow
There won’t be a brand new day
So hear me now hear what I say

Have a little love
For the angels in devils around
Have a little love
For the lost who are found
Have a little love
Soon you’ll dance your last dance on the ball
Just have a little love for us all

Hey little darling
Don’t you know it’s a war
He ain’t coming home yet
He hasn’t seen enough gore
Hey little sister
What do your prayers hold
Salvation ain’t coming
From the altars of gold

But if you choose the sorrow
To guide you all the way
You won’t find tomorrow
There won’t be a brand new day
So hear me now hear what I say

Chorus

Have a little love
Just have a little love
Just have a little love
Have a little love
Love
Track Name: Hold Me Tight
(M. Predanič / M. Predanič)

It’s been raining for quite some time
Seems that I am to blame
Since I’ve put it all on the line
Nothing is quite the same
I’m telling you I still care
Don’t leave me hanging in despair
You know all the things divine
Always burn before they shine so

Hold me tight
Hold me tight
Don’t ever leave me
Just hold me tight
I can take it all
Just don’t say the word tonight

I’m begging you on my knees
But you’re so hard to please
Is there nothing for me to do
Can’t we see this through
We were working so hard on this
Would you leave it all because of a kiss
Sure you know all the things divine
Always burn before they shine so

Chorus

Just don’t say the word
No no no

We were working so hard on this
Would you leave it all because of a kiss
Sure you know all the things divine
Always burn before they shine so
Don’t be afraid to

Chorus
Track Name: Holdin' On
(M. Predanič / M. Predanič)

Is it real or just another fantasy
I can feel this heaven sent divinity
Love was never my aim
I was only there for the fame
She didn’t know my name
She was only there to play the wicked game
We were both to blame

I’m still holdin’ on to what we shared in the night
I don’t know what it means but it sure felt so right
I’m still shakin’ I’m still cravin’ though you are gone
But I can’t help it I’m still holdin’ on
I’m still holdin’ on

You never know when love decides to take a shot
And your loneliness strips the last defense that you got
Love was never my aim
I was only there for the fame
She didn’t know my name
She was only there to play the wicked game
Sometimes we’re all the same

Chorus

I’m holdin’ on
I’m holdin’ on

Chorus

I’m still holdin’ on
Well I keep shakin’ I keep cravin’ though you are gone
Well I can’t help it I’m still holdin’ on
Holdin’ on
Track Name: Crying in Shadows
(M. Predanič / M. Predanič)

It feels deep inside that there’s something wrong
The feeling that’s burning so strong
And yet we still think that this fear is fake
Somehow we must prove our mistake
Now the pain we tried to hide comes alive

Just look what you’ve done now she’s on the run
She’s crying in shadows
She doesn’t look back but she will not forget
She’s crying in shadows
Looking for shadows tonight

You don’t know what you got until the thing is gone
And the curtain of life has been drawn
So get up run you fool before it’s too late
There’s nothing as hard as heartache
And now the pain we made inside
It’s so hard to subside

Chorus

Yeah just look what you’ve done now she’s on the run
She’s crying in shadows
She doesn’t look back but she will not forget
She’s crying in shadows tonight
You know that she’s crying in shadows
Track Name: V8 Serenade
(R. Marolt / R. Marolt)

Hey baby you’re a real heartbreaker
Whenever you please you have me down on my knees
You’re a temptation I can’t defeat
How about I give you some speed
Releasing our fury that’s raging within
I won’t hesitate at all
I will rev it up as I stop at your door
Buckle your seatbelt and don’t ask why
You’re coming with me for a ride

My engine will sing you V8 serenade
All wrapped in smoke exploding like hand-grenade
Just don’t be afraid as the RPMs escalate
Then you’ll realize that our ride has just begun

I don’t care what your mama saying
The night is calling at home you won’t be staying no way
I won’t hesitate at all
I will rev it up as I stop at your door
Buckle your seatbelt and don’t ask why
You’re coming with me for a ride

Chorus

Speeding on the moonlit lane we escape the city lights
Second thoughts are now in vain your essence drives my ego nuts On the back-seat on the trunk we make love beneath the stars
When morning chases the dark away in my embrace you’ll stay
Chorus
Track Name: Wings of an Angel
(R. Marolt / R. Marolt)

In the room of grayness time is standing still
Yearning for a change to make these walls of sorrow disappear
She came in from nowhere how could I’ve ever seen
She would set me free and wake me from my everlasting dream
I’ve been trying so hard to finally reach you

Tonight I lay on the wings of an angel
Tonight I feel your embrace and I know I could never ever let go

She’s my true desire one I can’t resist
The one that turns my nightmare into the most beautiful of dreams Skin so pale and fragrant lips so soft and red
In this night on fire sharing time of our lives in my bed
I’ve been trying so hard to finally reach you

Tonight I lay on the wings of an angel
Tonight I feel your embrace and I know I could never ever let go
I don’t care if this is our last night together
Tonight I’m holding you tight and if it’s all I get I’ll have no regrets

The only thing I dread is waking up one day
Realizing it was an illusion fading away

Chorus

I’ll have no regrets
Track Name: Feels Alright
(M. Predanič / M. Predanič)

You’re waiting here here every day
If somebody wants to play
For fat daddies covered in lust
Paying with heaven dust

But you ain’t cheap ‘cause you got style
You’ve been doin’ this for a while
You’ve got no shame no regret
Oh they like it when you’re like that
Just like thatYou know it feels alright to be with you tonight
You know it feels alright to be with you for just one night
Baby it feels alright to be with you tonight
You know that it feels alright to be with you for just one night

You’re playing hard so hard to get
Girl you’re making me sweat
I know you want it you want it rough
But it’s never quite enough
Yeah you like it when you’re in control
Oh you like to rock ’n’ roll
So come with me we’ll do a song
You’ll be screaming all night long

Chorus

So you got the stuff
Let’s see it here
Alright it’s cool
Let’s do this shit

You know it feels alright to be with you tonight
You know it feels alright to be with you for just one night
Baby it feels alright to be with you tonight
You know that it feels alright to be with you
You know that it feels alright you know that it feels alright
You know that it feels alright to be with you for just one night
Feels alright to be with you tonight
You know that it feels alright with you tonight
Track Name: Can’t Tell If You Know
(B. Marolt / B. Marolt)

Rain keeps falling down on me
When I look around knowing you don’t think of me
But the rain cannot wash all the sadness deep and true
Bitter-sweet ‘cause I’m so in love with you
I held you in my arms long time ago
But I did not appreciate I did not know
Who you are and what are we oh why I couldn’t see
You and I were simply meant to be

When I see you it hurts ‘cause I know you’ll be gone
In the dead of night I’ll wonder alone
When I remember it burns ‘cause I can’t tell if you know
That I love you so and I want to hold you again

I think of all the things we did together
Talk all night make love and sit beneath the stars
But every dream I’ll ever dream has no hope no chance at light
You are his and I’m left with starless nights

For some long forgotten reason I left you
I didn’t care if I took and ripped your heart in two
And now my heart is breaking too your eyes cut it through and through
But I won’t cry I’ll endure and I’ll get by

Chorus

When I remember it burns
Cause I can’t tell if you know
That I love you so
That I love you so
That I love you so and I want to hold you again
Really wanna hold you again
Track Name: Give Me Your Love Tonight
(M. Predanič / M. Predanič)

It was a sunny day I took my car for a ride
Had miles to go and I was feelin’ alright
But soon I realized my tank was dry
Had to fill it up so the baby could fly
So I ran into a station a couple of miles ahead
I stopped my car to let them know where I’m at
I waited for some time to see if they will react
Then I saw this real cutie puttin’ gas in the back

I said give me your love tonight
I said give me your lovin’ tonight

It was a smoky room he was shottin’ some pool
Had a steady arm and the look was cool
With the turn of his hand he made the finishin’ blow
Before the night was over he won six in a row
So he takes his cash in a motel not far
He takes his front row seat right at the bar
With the whiskey at hand he lights his Marlboro red
Then he sees this real cutie he offers her a cigarette

Chorus

It was another day he was screwing around
I mean literally and he was layin’ on the ground
Checking the engine always figuring somethin’ out
Real KK mechanic that’s what I’m talkin’ about
It was an ordinary day he was doin’ his job
When he saw this new car in front of his shop
And the owner was this babe dressed tight and fit
And she wanted to know if he could fix her back seat

Chorus

It was a morning hour he was jammin’ guitar
Playin’ same old song about a guy in a bar
When suddenly his old string pops
He decides to pay a visit to some music shops
So he enters this shop across the town
He grabs the coolest guitar starts jammin’ around
When a chick at the counter says you sure play as hell
He adds babe I know other techniques as well
Track Name: Hit the Streets
(M. Predanič / M. Predanič)

Mama told me don’t hang out at night
‘Cause soon you’ll be all high and drunk and that’s not right
But I didn’t listen I just went for a thrill
To be around my friends and chicks you know how it feels

So kick your old sweet home tonight goodbye
And put some decent clothes on ’cause it’s time to fly
Then come downtown ’cause the party’s already begun
It’s high time to rock this place we’ll have some fun
These are precious moments that were given onto us
Don’t hesitate don’t vacillate or else you’ll miss the bus

When we hit the streets will you keep up the beat
We’ll be out all night
This is our day and what would people say
If I were home tonight
But there’s a special girl right here in my world
For her I really care
‘Cause when I see her smile it takes me for a while up there

Then she comes in tight blue jeans across the street
She knows she’s lookin’ good but she’s still rising up the heat
I’m tellin’ you boys I can’t take much more of this
It’s now or never I’m just gonna go for a kiss
These are precious moments that were given onto us
don’t hesitate don’t vacillate or else you’ll miss the bus

Chorus

Oh for her I realy care
Oh she takes me up there
Oh yeah
‘Cause when I see her smile it takes me for a while up there
Yeah
Track Name: Fight Fire with Fire
(B. Marolt / B. Marolt)

Living a life takes will and strength
To overcome all the bullshit they throw upon you
Through life is like hard dusty road
Keep riding through sunsets into the dawn
Never give up never give in
To all those saying you’re not worth a damn thing
Fight them with all that you have
Show them the burning of lakes deep in hell

Fight fire with fire
So you’ll fell you are alive
Fight fire with fire
Into the blazing fires dive
When you walk upon my grave just smile
You must realize
That I was once more alive than you all
Alive fighting fire with fire

Yeah keep faith in yourself but don’t be a fool
Don’t trust the backstabbing bastards around you
When shit hits the fan and most people run
Don’t be a coward just stand where it falls

Chorus

Stand up and fight
Proclaim your right

When the time comes to set the records straight
Don’t cry out don’t hide don’t be afraid
Trust your heart and mind
Listen to the voice inside
Telling you to fight

Chorus
