Slippery roads would take me to your house. A smell of whiskey in your car. Danger signs warn me to stand still to not move towards this silence I crave. Up on the mountains where I grew up. Up on the mountains of slippery roads.

A Long Walk 04:45
Lost in every morning with you two moments just to show you how I liked your voice how I liked your long, long arms Scratching my ears just to bring your sound back unable to hold your hand or even lend mine Why don't you come to me tonight? I've been on the desert it was a long walk without you And after all, all the towns are the same when we run away, all the streets look the same Why don't you come to me tonight? Now all your roads, they seem to lead to nowhere. And all the lines, they seem to lead to nowhere. And all the signs, they tell me nothing. And all the unsaid, they tell me nothing. Why don't you come to me tonight?

News 04:30
All the philosophers of the world and all the leaders All the crying out loud and all the lectures Our chins are dust and dirt Our minds hitting the ground I say I've got to change the world But how can I change the world When you are living in it How can I change the world When you are living in it By the fireplace with vodka and wine covered in cigarette smoke Nothing really happens Our daily painkillers Our ideal dreamers Stones we kill each other with The flowers never really grew I say I've got to change the world But how can I change the world When you are living in it How can I change the world When you are living in it How can I change the world News from all over the world I got news from all over the world

Rainy Fall 03:02
Want my wine by the river and my sun to be smooth Want my clothes in the closet and windows full of view Want my gloves to be brand-new and my curtains windy Want my train on the rail and the clouds making shapes Want my doors to be open or closed when I want to be free n the mountains or engaged to the sea Want the smiles to be grieving the next day we are unseen and the gestures all showing no-one nows when we'll meet again I want you to send me letters like old couples do Wanna stay in bed all day building fables Wanna lay there watching you play hearing the rain All the horses stay put and then ready-set-go and the wine and the river and the mountain and the gestures all flow on rain Rainy fall in the summer

Kite 05:03
I feel like a kite flying over the river Rainy weather, heavy clouds I'm in a little boat loving the grey atmosphere With a quarter in my bruised hands I'm wondering if I could sink my thoughts I'm in a hotel rook with a vision of the city life Too numb to get out too colde outside When the night hits the streets I say I'll find my way out of there Digging into dark thoughts under the street signs Well thoughts are what they are Add themselves up and eat you There are things to be worried about others to be left alone If the places we grew up were really for us, people we met were all a great act-out or people inside us manage too many strings I'm coming home soon it won't take long I'm coming home soon it won't be long I'm coming home soon

People Stare 04:30
Walk with me Walk on a diamond road Put your best suit on and save the day And I, I'll put my best dress on, then call it a day On the night, through the last sip, I put my best face on and save your day And you, you put your best face on then call it a day And the people stare On the road Going soundproof And the people stare

Obituary 05:52
The way time clicks The way time clicks your life away The way time takes The way time takes your life away And I who's always been afraid of everything I see the tragedy of loss

Futile math. Am I still on the map? Panacea's sisters never came Crowd near, so crown me and leave me here where heroes die Futile words. You still think I'm on the road But I've parked here, missing all the days gone by The better days. The carefree days with eyes not watch people go With better days to come Futile math. Am I still on the map? Panacea's sisters never came Crowd near, so crown me and leave me here where heroes die
9.
Under the veil of the sun on the beach we roll like domino And to the air that I breath I can swear I see clouds shaping And like the old ships that slowly sail I am moving on And through the fog of the heat I still see your expression We love the air and the breeze that beautifies our car-rides We love to laugh and to cherish the city's trembling sky Something is changing and I'm flying over the rooftops Over the neon lights Under the veil of the sun on the beach we roll like domino We love the air and the breeze that beautifies our car-rides We love to laugh and to cherish the city's trembling sky Something is changing and I'm flying over the rooftops Over the neon lights I am moving on

Playground 03:24
Playground and playground games Let me hold your hand Fireflies and red, red wine on the playground nights Red, red wine until the end of time Tigers in the circus of love Beware child 'cause in the name of each love you sacrifice your soul In the name of each love people come and go

about

Their debut album, "Verba Time", has received enthusiastic reviews and the song "In A Bar" has broken a record of views on youtube. Tango With Lions return this spring with their highly anticipated second album, "A Long Walk". Their musical path during the last four years could be compared to a long walk. The project of Kat (Katerina Papachristou) began as a changing group of musicians and has grown to be the stable lineup of the band that recorded "A Long Walk".

With the compositions and lyrics of Kat as a starting point, the band took their time to arrange the 10 album songs with continuous pre-production and rehearsals during the last two years. The recordings began in summer 2012 and were completed in January 2013 by Thodoris Zefkilis in SCA studio.

As in "Verba Time" so here, every song is a small story, but this time the stories are self-contained, with routes through dark dreams, night trips, sunny fantasies, memories and stories of love and separation. In Tango With Lions’ long walk bittersweet melodies and dreamy lyrics encounter rich arrangements. The result is unique: atmospheric electricity with dark outbursts, mystic trombone melodies, an old piano and a dark and solid rhythm section, always maintaining the special atmosphere that hovers around Kat’s voice.

“A Long Walk” is released in cd, vinyl and digital album from Inner Ear.

Tango With Lions are:
Katerina Papachristou – voice, acoustic guitar, piano
Yannos Paramithiotis – electric guitar, vocals
Nikos Vergetis – drums, percussion, vocals
Jim Staridas – trompone, vocals
Thodoris Zefkilis – bass, vocals
