about

Welcome to Something Like Fiction, a kind of "lost album" that serves as a behind-the-scenes look at where we came from, who we were, and where we were going as Wavorly. We've got 22 tracks that were never mixed, mastered, or really polished up beyond the demo stage, but show the raw progression of our band from before we were signed to Flicker Records in 2006 all the way up to the break-up in late 2012. In short, its about 7 years worth of music (a couple of the songs are from 2005,) all for your listening delight. Here's the breakdown:

Tracks 1-3: The Final Songs (2011-2012)
Tracks 4-6: The Other Graves/Rauch Demos (2009-2010)
Tracks 7-17: The Lost Songs (2007-2009)
Tracks 18-22: The CTFOF B-sides/ Early Songs (2005-2006)

We hope you enjoy this collection, I think it gives a good look at how we evolved as a band; in songwriting, in sound, in just about everything. Musically, you'll hear everything from alternative pop to heavy rock, to pop punk.. Lyrically, you'll see how our experiences in real life bled into the music we wrote...you'll hear it all. Thank you so much for buying the album and supporting us. Now, sit back and take a listen, and again, enjoy!

If Only You Were Mine
This song is special, not only because it's one of our favorites, but because it's the last song we really wrote as a band together in early 2012. It's another silly love song, only this one's written about that moment that you finally work up the nerve to approach that special person that you have feelings for. It's definitely a tough thing to do in the moment, but there's a lot of freedom in getting those feelings out. There's also a sense of urgency that hits, like it has to happen right then! We wanted to convey those feelings of freedom, urgency, and adventure that falling in love can be. And as we all know...there's always a little hint of desperation in the mix when you're falling in love, so that's there too.
-Matt

lyrics

Hey, it started in the back of my head,
became a secret that just had to be said.
I feel it moving closer now, screaming in my lungs,
dying to be sung.
Girl, they tell me that you're out of my reach,
but you're swaying to a lonely beat.
And I feel ya moving closer now,
if my words could catch your ear somehow;
I'm singing...

I don't wanna waste forever
on half-hearted goodbyes, the rumours or the lies.
I don't wanna wait forever,
for the moment to be right, no,
it's gotta be tonight!

We could have it all, let go and take the fall.
Oh, if i could say that you were mine!
We could drive all night, take a chance and hold on tight.
We'd have forever in the palm of our hands,
Baby, if only you were mine.

Say any little thing that you can,
let me know that I can breathe again.
You're moving closer now,
I'm begging you to listen, just to notice me at all.
I'm singing...

I don't wanna waste forever
on half-hearted goodbyes, the rumours or the lies.
I don't wanna wait forever
for the moment to be right,
it's gotta be tonight!

We could have it all, let go and take the fall.
Oh, if i could say that you were mine!
We could drive all night, take a chance and hold on tight.
We'd have forever in the palm of our hands,
Baby, if only you were mine.

Take my hand, let's run away,
To hell with all the things they say!
So let it out, scream it out!
Tell me you can hear me now.

I don't wanna waster forever.
No, I don't wanna wait forever.
I'll never stop believing,
You know I'll never stop!

We could have it all, let go and take the fall.
Oh, if i could say that you were mine!
We could drive all night, take a chance and hold on tight.
We'd have forever in the palm of our hands,

Baby, if only you were mine.
