about

‘Days Like These’ is Philip Marino’s 3rd CD, and it was produced in New York’s magical Catskill Mountains by Simone Felice (www.simonefelice.com), the critically acclaimed singer-songwriter and producer of the number 1 worldwide hit album Cleopatra by ‘The Lumineers’. Simone also co-produced the Mercury Prize nominated album The Bride by ‘Bat For Lashes’. Also featured on Marino’s new CD is Simone’s brother, James Felice, a multi-instrumentalist who is a founding member of the world-renowned American folk band ‘The Felice Brothers’ (www.thefelicebrothers.com).

Marino is an American singer-songwriter (alt-country/Americana) living in England, who has been playing shows from London to Norwich for the past 6 years. Influenced at a young age by the likes of John Mellencamp, Jim Croce, Cat Stevens, Neil Young, and Bob Dylan, the music he makes today is a mix of storytelling and soul-searching. In addition to playing live, he's had his songs played on radio stations around the world, including 'BBC Introducing' radio, 'Amazing Radio', and 'Radio Warwickshire'.

Track Name: Everybody Knows
Got sucker-punched by the truth
Never really needed proof
Guess I only knew one way
Never really thought you'd stay
But that's just the way it goes
Everybody knows
Everybody
Everybody knows 

Man, we had our day
Before we lost our way
I wish for you the best
You probably wouldn't guess
So thanks for the highs and lows
That everybody knows
Everybody
Everybody knows

(Bridge)
I may have crossed a line
Like a holy man
Who got lost in the wine
But I hope I don’t find
That all my past
Was only in my mind

So now you're on your own
Living far from home
Strong and gently
Sailing away from me
But somehow my love still shows
And everybody knows
Everybody
Everybody knows
Everybody knows

Track Name: Hand Grenade
Will you last through the fight?
Will you fly to the light?
There’s a difference between
The match and the gasoline
Will you hold on to what’s right?

You pulled the pin
Never at home in your skin
You pulled the pin
Now you’re just running from your sins

I thought I could have it all
That it was my call
But then I had to learn
It just wasn’t my turn
Wish I woke up before the fall

But I pulled the pin
Was never at home in my skin
I pulled the pin
Now I'm just running from my sins

(Bridge)
When all you know gets blown apart
It’s just so easy to share those scars
But I know you can still find your way in the dark 

Will we last through the night?
Will we fight on for what’s right?

Well, we pulled the pin
Just waiting for the end to begin
We pulled the pin
All excuses are thin
We pulled the pin
Never at home in our skin
We pulled the pin
Now we're just running from our sins
I'm still running from my sins

Track Name: Days Like These
If you knew the time
Life would fall apart
Would you handle it
Or not even start
If you tried your best
But came up short
Would you try again
Or just cut the cord
Hold on now my friend
Days like these are not the end
You’ll come around again

Did you have a dream
That you let go
Was it all your choice
Or did they tell you so
Just recall a time
When you stood tall
And held your ground
Like leaves in the fall
It's no wonder, my friend
Days like these will do you in
But I know you’ll be back again

(Chorus)
Oh, days like these
When you’re on your knees
And begging please
On days like these

(Bridge)
It’s not easy to see
Floating along on a breeze
That you were made for days like these

Just hold on now my friend
‘Cause days like these are not the end
You’ll come around again

(Chorus)
Oh, days like these
When you’re on your knees
And begging please
On days like
Oh, days like these
When you’re on your knees
And begging please
On days like these
Days like these
Days like these

Track Name: Hero
I heard it from a man who was fighting to survive
Said it’s easier to live a lie than to be alive
He said hold on to what you’ve found
Live big, make a sound
Before they put you in the ground

(Chorus)
Don’t run away, or be so quick to follow
Don’t mistake today for tomorrow
You can be your own hero
Be your own hero

Said, yeah, you can drink yourself right into the dirt
But that’s just chasing pain to keep from being hurt
Then he told me not to worry
That there’s still time for glory
If I put it in the story

(Chorus)
Don’t run away, or be so quick to follow
Don’t mistake today for tomorrow
You can be your own hero
Be your own hero

(Bridge)
Well, I like dreaming with my eyes open
Saying those things left unspoken
Maybe it’s okay if hopes get broken


(Chorus)
Don’t run away, or be so quick to follow
And don’t mistake today for tomorrow
You can be your own hero
Be your own hero
I can be my own hero

Track Name: Long Road
If the sun won't rise again
You got to find your way back friend
When the sun don’t shine again
It’s just your time to repent
But it’s a long road back from where you’ve been

If the truth won’t come with ease
Well, you know you’ll never find peace
When the truth has you on your knees
Hell, all you can do is beg please
It’s a long road of lies you can’t believe
Yeah, this long road lies as it needs

Oh, this long road
This long, long, long road

When your time does come at last
You better hope it comes fast
When time’s had its last laugh
You can throw away your plans
Yeah, this long road steals all we have
This long road takes what it can

Oh, this long road
This long, long, long road
