about

'I Can Resist Anything But Temptation' is entirely self-penned, self-produced and self-played. It gives us post-modern soul for the listener who likes their grooves smoked, cheeky and easy. The title is a paraphrase of an Oscar Wilde remark with Seany offering a dark twist to its connotations of self-indulgence: “Sometimes the things you can't resist are the things that make you sick”. It’s an album about misplaced desires, disillusionment and self-destruction but with a sunshine zest that belies its subject matter. At its core there's a call to break the circle of self-harm and a dream of moving on, moving forward. Lyrically inspired by Elvis Costello, the message rides a casual ‘70s-flavoured upbeat mood, taking listeners back to that era, like a time-travelling fusion of ‘Summer Breeze’-era Isley Brothers and Rumer.

Just a Little Bit

Verse 1

You know you're my fortune of gold
and i've lost more than I ever told
so i'm keeping you close cos' you're rude
you're my love, you're my drink, you're my food
I touch your hand I crumble
and when I talk I mumble
I can't believe today
you give me sun when cloud is grey

Chorus

You give ( just a little bit)
Talk ( just a little bit)
Love ( just a little bit)
But that's all I need
You care ( just a little bit)
Cheat (just a little bit)
That's more than nothing
at least that is something

Verse 2

You're a walk in the park your the breeze
When I can't see the woods for the trees
you're the one that lights up all my trail
that leads me through my every travail
I take your hand, I fumble
I trip and take a tumble
Head is spinning, I'm a mess
My north is south and east is west

Chorus

You give ( just a little bit)
Talk ( just a little bit)
Love ( just a little bit)
But that's all I need
You care (just a little bit)
Cheat (just a little bit)
That's more than nothing
at least that is something

Verse 3

You know you're my fortune of gold
and i've lost more than I ever told
so i'm keeping you close cos' you're rude
you're my love, you're my drink, you're my food

Chorus

Just a little bit
Just a little bit
Just a little bit

Care ( Just a little bit)

that's more than nothing ( just a little bit)
at least that is something ( Just a little bit)

at least that is something ( Just a little bit)

Track Name: ADRENALIN
Verse 1

You're systematic
chugging like a train
how come you're so relentless
wouldn't wanna get in your way

you wanna slow down
before you burst a vein
drain the spirit from your blood
remove the goodness from your flame

That would be tragic
ever so tragic
If you lose your magic
Just looking out for you

Chorus 1

do-do-do x4

Verse 2

Oh you're a crash waiting to happen
Oh you're a crash waiting to happen
Oh you're a crash...
Just looking out for you

Well I only say it
because I'm friends with you
but I feel a stranger
running in your shoes

Bridge 2

I see disaster
so much disaster
If you lose your laughter
Just looking out for you

That would be tragic
ever so tragic
If you lose your magic
Just looking out for you

Bridge 3

That would be tragic
ever so tragic
If you lose your magic

Track Name: I CAN RESIST ANYTHING BUT TEMPTATION
Verse 1

Always wanting something
so bad that you can touch
you can almost taste
almost feel the sugar rush

Be careful what you wish for
cos' it may come true
you have the tendency
to never think through

Verse 2

Remember Bella Boo
The wolf in sheep's clothes
well, she went to kiss you
and then bit you on the nose

When you get desire
it often turns you blind
you end up crashing through
all the warning signs ( temptation)

Chorus 1

Temptation...

Verse 3

Remember Bella Boo
The wolf in sheeps clothes
well, she went to kiss you
and then bit you on the nose

When you get desire
it often turns you blind
you end up crashing through
all the warning signs ( temptation)

Chorus 2

Temptation...


Verse 4


feel the sugar rush
feel the sugar rush
feel the sugar rush
almost feel the sugar rush

feel the sugar rush
feel the sugar rush
feel the sugar rush
almost feel the sugar rush

Track Name: SOMETIMES IT IS TRUE
Intro

da oon da da da da da oon da da da da da oon da oon da dooo x 2

Verse 1

Sometimes it is true
to win you first must lose
you can't get up 'til you've fallen down
so you respect your bruise

you may earn a crust
like a chicken scratching dust
robbing Peter to pay Paul
But you never make a fuss - no

Chorus 1

da oon da da da da da oon da da da da da oon da oon da dooo x2

Verse 2

A cloud as thick as clay
is hanging in the way
to get to the big yellow
you must first break through the grey

and then to you surprise
the sun will hit your eyes
you get your ray of light
and then you photosynthesise

Chorus 2

da oon da da da da da oon da da da da da oon da oon da dooo x2

Middle eight

Say you better believe it
Yeah you better believe it - ooh

Verse 3

A know a man to win
he'd do anything
Walk a burning candle through a dark room full of nitroglycerine

A fine line between brave
and devil may care flying fool
what ever you do keep your cool
The golden rule? You make your rules

Chorus 2

da oon da da da da da oon da da da da da oon da oon da dooo x2
Track Name: BREAK MY FALL
Verse 1

Like a jet pilot in trouble I am falling from the sky
regardless of whether I want to live or die
broke my back on a six pack, gotta torso made of stone
maybe that will save me as I feel free fall close to home

But you know I ain't flinching
and I certainly ain't blinking
though i'm seriously thinking
if you're gonna be...

Chorus 1

There to somehow break my fall x2

Verse 2

Cutting through the atmosphere, belows' a concrete ocean
all around my life keeps flashing by – flashing in slow motion
I freeze the frame, then I rewind
and play again, a thousand times

Well I wish I was joking
But I really ain't coping
So i'm seriously hoping
that you're gonna be

Chorus 2

There to somehow break my fall x 4


Chorus 3

There to somehow break my fall x 4

You pick me up, you got no heart
Pull me together then take me apart
Don't know where I am
I don't understand
Don't know where I am

You give me wisdom, you're niave

Each and every day
Everyday...

You turn me on then you turn 'round
Guess you're not as close as you sound
Under my breath I curse 'cos it really hurts
But the pain gets worse

Came down with a load of feathers and it's...

Got candy for the eye
But then got pulled to dry land
with a hook and fish in my hand and its...

So we took the road,
onward to horizon
The sun came out,
as the road began to widen
But the car was ancient
Skid into a basement
Made a police statement
Well if you don't like my driving get off the pavement.
Track Name: ALISON

Things ain't adding up to me

You love my company for sure
But you don't want nothing more
You got a certain kind of way
That only I could deal with baby

Alison, Alison, Alison

When you crash we're head to toe

You got a certain everyday
That knowone else would live with baby

Alison, Alison, Alison

Verse 3

You read my mind, I just about
Can take the words out of your mouth
When you sneaze I catch a cold
we're a chip off the same mold

Knowone else would listen baby
You got a certain kind of way
That only I could deal with baby
You got a certain everyday
That knowone else would live with baby

Chorus 2

Alison, Alison, Alison


Verse 4

When i'm sad I pull the plug
and bleed my heart out on your rug
'Cos it always hurts when you shout -

You got a stupid kind of way
Only I could deal with baby
And for all the things you say
Knowone else would listen baby

Track Name: GO FOR WHAT THE HELL
Verse 1

Go for what the hell you just...
you just may do well adjust
as far as I can tell you may do well

Throw yourself into the things...
the things you're scared to do know strings
what you got to lose, you got to lose?

Don't you dream or dwell
Forget the wishing well
Make a move and go for what the hell
Ohhh

Verse 2

Don't let your demons talk you in...
Talk you into bed knowing
You'll only dream instead, you'll dream instead

And it sure ain't no fun when your...
monkey ways a tonne that's for sure
But you carry on, you carry on.

Don't just talk, don't yell
Get out your bubble shell
Take a chance and go for what the hell. Hell

Don't you dream or dwell
Forget the wishing well
Make a move and go for what the hell. Hell

Verse 3

Go for what the hell
you just may do well
as far as I can tell you may do well
May do well
I can tell
May do well
What the hell.
