about

The Royalty El Paso, Texas

“Dreamy ’60's soundscapes… Like Amy Winehouse went on holiday with Vampire Weekend” is MTV Buzzworthy’s reflection on indie darlings The Royalty. Best described as "rock & soul," the band extracts its influences from the girl-groups of the Motown and Spector era, and the R&B crooners of the 1970s. ... more

Track Name: Alexander
Walk away, like I knew you would.
It's okay - it all went south in Santa Fe,
There's no one we should blame.

Don't let me down, Alexander
(The train is comin', don't start runnin' away.)
Take me with you, Alexander
(I'm goin' to always love you, anyway)
Don't let me down, take me with you.

Remember the time I lost my mind?
You held your breath, I promised I'd come out of it.
Don't start the countdown yet.

The radio never played my songs.
I didn't care - it's just as long as you were there.
Now I hear them everywhere.

Don't let me down, Alexander
(The train is comin', don't start runnin' away.)
Take me with you, Alexander
(I'm goin' to always love you, anyway)
Don't let me down, take me with you.

I wouldn't look if I were you,
I'd do things people should never do;
A prayer and a bottle of Scotch,
A city in which to get lost.

Here, at the end of avenues,
On nights I spent with the black and blues,
I wander the streets all alone
Like it's a waltz with a ghost.
Track Name: All Alone
First, you tell me to come over late at night,
But you always pick a fight.
Is it worth it?

Then, you tell me, please, please call when I get home,
But you don't pick up the phone.
Is it worth it?

I'm all alone,
I'm all alone,
I'm all alone,
I'm all alone.

You should hear those things they're sayin' about you,
What this playin' could lead to.
Are you worth it? But..

Boy, I know you love these games I play with you,
But somebody's got to lose.
Is it worth it?

I'm all alone,
I'm all alone,
I'm all alone,
I'm all alone.

Ooo, Baby,
Aw, Baby.
Track Name: Silver Screen
Ooh, You always make me feel so good,
Even with all the stupid things you say and do,
I want you, baby, I want you, want you.

Still, you make me look like such a fool.
While you stay positively cool, I go insane.
I want you baby, I do.

It'd be so easy on the silver screen,
The right song would play, and I'd know what to say.
If we had more time, we could really shine.
Yeah, we'd dance all night.
I've got you till daylight.

There're so many ways that this could go,
But you don't wanna take it slow.
I understand; Just smile, pretty, and hold my hand.
Hell if I know when it's gonna end,
I know we'll never be "just friends," I want it all.
I need you baby, I do.

It'd be so easy on the silver screen,
The right song would play, and I'd know what to say.
If we had more time, we could really shine.
Yeah, we'd dance all night.
I've got you till daylight.

And if I had the chance,
I would strike up the band,
We'd bring them all to tears and have them singing.
And then I could profess,
And friends would raise their glass,
To toast a love they wish they could believe in.

It'd be so easy on the silver screen,
The right song would play, and I'd know what to say.
If we had more time, we could really shine.
Yeah, we'd dance all night.
I've got you till daylight.
