Stems – Love Will Grow

I posted a song by the Stems earlier called Tears Me In Two and they recorded this song at the same session. They released their first EP Rosebud Volume 1 in 1985 and it included  Love Will Grow.

The EP reached #72 in the Australian charts in 1986.

The Stems were a garage punk band formed in Perth, Western Australia in late 1983. They were hugely popular in Australia. The band broke up in 1987 and reunited in 2003 and are still together. The still have three of the original members. Dom Mariani, Julian Matthews, and David Shaw.

They are very popular to this day in Australia. Their debut single “She’s a Monster/Make you Mine” reached the top of the independent charts and also sold 500 copies in England. The single was to be the 2nd highest selling independent single for Australia in 1985, second only to the Hoodoo Gurus.

They were one of the few indie bands that sometimes made it on the mainstream charts.

Love Will Grow

Feeling down and not so bright
Another lost and lonely night
I try so hard not to feel this way
I could not fight these blues away

Then you came along and you made me know
How it is our love will grow
How it is our love will grow

Yesterday I could not speak
My days were sad, confused, and weak
A cut was bleeding deep inside of me
Anxiety that I could not hide

Then you came along and you made me know
How it is our love will grow
How it is our love will grow
How it is our love will grow
How it is our love will grow

Then you came along and you made me know
How it is our love will grow
How it is our love will grow
How it is our love will grow
How it is our love will grow
