The Like – I Can See It In Your Eyes —-Powerpop Friday

I featured this band a few months ago. Elizabeth Anne “Z” Berg  the singer and guitarist wrote this song. It’s on the album Release Me which was released in 2010.

The band has some cool power pop songs. They were formed in Los Angeles in 2001 and unfortunately have been on an indefinite hiatus since 2013.

The Like’s lineup consisted of Z Berg (vocals and guitar), Tennessee Thomas (drums), Laena Geronimo (bass), and Annie Monroe (organ). The band released three extended plays (EPs) and two studio albums.

Their influences were The Kinks, Beatles, Dylan, Motown, and The Who. Also the Motown sound of the 60s.

Now the lead singer “Z Berg” is fronting a band called the Phases.

Z Berg interview in 2005: We timed this band perfectly so we’d never have to get a job. We started the band when we were all 15, and once we started, we were in school for the next three years and worked on the band during the summer and weekends. There was no real way to argue with it because we were playing shows, touring, and working a lot. So the worse day job I’ve ever had is being in a band, which is pretty lucky so far.

 

 

I Can See It In Your Eyes

Knock knock knock, you’re knocking
On my window last night
This fire’s been out for some time
You told me it was over with her
That’s not quite right
You said I was your life
So be min, so be mineThings are rough enough
Won’t you toughen up
Please just make up your mind
How could I be so blindI can see it in your eyes
I can see it in your eyes
When you lie
I see it in your eyesYou’ll never leave her will you, baby? I understand
You’ll never grow up, or be a man
And I’d wait a thousand years for you
But this I demand
Just tell me where I stand
Take my hand, I know you canShe keeps calling me
I can’t take it
She thinks I’m really her friend
I think we’re near in the endI can see it in your eyes
I can see it in your eyes
When you lie
I see it in your eyes

So crooked mouths speak crooked words
That ruin you for other girls
I don’t know how to conjugate a lie
My crooked eyes have crooked tears,
You turned the tables on me, dear
I was so shocked I couldn’t even cry

I can see it in your eyes
Yes, I see it in your eyes
When you lie
I see it in your eyes
Yeah, I see it in your eyes
I can see it in your eyes
