"Feltham Is Singing Out" as written by and Richard Archer....
It started off alright
We'd go out Friday night
And have a drink and do whatever made us feel alright
We'd stay out all weekend

Try taking everything
But never hurt no-one and so what
You only live once - I thought
'Til I got caught

That weren't enough for you
You'd go out Monday too
And Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 'till it all caught up with you
You're everyone's best friend

'Long as they've got something
I did not know you no more
Heartbreak - a sickness I can't see
Oh-no-no-no-no-no-no

Feltham is singing out
Feltham is singing out
Tonight a light's gone out
21 years old and out
Feltham is singing out

We all went out one night
You got us in a fight
You owed some money
To a monkey who had seen you right

You sold your furniture
So you could pay him off
They cut the power
Can't afford it you slept on the floor

You can't hold down a job
So then you had to rob
First from your mom and then your friends and then the local shop
But as a criminal

You're just no good at all
You got your collar felt
So dumb, you thought about skipping bail
Now you're in jail

Feltham is singing out
Feltham is singing out
Tonight a light's gone out
21 years old and out
Feltham is singing out

You don't like prison life
You loved to watch the sky
And you get beat and injured
End up throwing up all night

You could not take no more
So when they closed the door
Tied up your sheets - strang yourself up
And then you were no more, no more

Every day I,I,I see your face
As I walk on by past that awful place
23 hours in a cell
Each and every day just locked up living hell, living hell, living hell

Feltham is singing out
Feltham is singing out
Feltham is singing out

    General Commentit's hard to see what the band is trying to portray to me personally, i don't know if they wrote this song for some feltham guy, or if they wrote this as a message to livin life on the wild side. but good song, starts out fun, then brings you back to reality

    General CommentI think this song is about a friend of theirs who has obviously been caught up in the life of partying. Its pretty simple, it tells the story of how he got into trouble after partying too much and doing drugs and turned to theft to get by. He now ends up in prison at just 21 years old. The last verse tells how he commits suicide cause he cant take prison and how it really affects the person who wrote the song. really powerful song. I love hard-fi... think theyr gona be huge.

    General CommentCan't figure out if you realise this already but Feltham has a young offenders institute. So I think the 'Feltham is singing out lyric' is a reference to the prison.

    General CommentBloody feltham young offenders! I guess the boys knew sumone who was in there, which wouldn't suprise me with the scene around staines - feltham area!!! I've seen the lead singer (can't remember his name) out shopping, he's pretty hot!!!

    They are a great band, one of the only good things to have come out of staines ever i think! I hope they do fantastically in 2006...

    General CommentThe title comes from a Channel 4 Documentary in which the young offenders wrote and sang their songs. It was called Feltham Sings.

    General CommentI love this song, some reason i always imagine the person he's singing about as a girl. I love this line 'Tied up your sheets - strang yourself up
    And then you were no more', made me feel all wierd the first time i heard it.
