Reginald Esquire Manchester, UK

Reginald Esquire comes to you from the clicking ivories of an antique piano, the tape's fizz and pop, the squeaking chair leg and overall under-production of raw recordings. But it is these amateur yet fortunate accidents, that blossom and burst to create real magic. ... more

Track Name: Two To Tango
‘Two To Tango’

It takes two to tango
in every light,
they’ll never see your deception
in the swing of the night.

If movement angers
and looks could kill,
then surely there’s a term for silence...

As the mood dims and we stand still,
the mood dims and we stand still,
your persona prickles my patience,
and the novelty seems to distill.

The twirl of arms
the clash of hips,
the erratic clouding of judgement
speaks the truth from it’s very own lips.

And who could suss it
in the peak of the jive,
that in the midst of the dancing
only one of them would come out alive.

Their grip grows tighter,
mascara spills,
They knew it took two to tango…

As the mood dims and we stand still,
the mood dims and we stand still,
your persona prickles my patience,
and the novelty seems to distill. x2
Track Name: Dreams Are For Everyone + Interlude
‘Dreams Are For Everyone’

It’s riddled with discrepancies
and read without a thought,
you wouldn’t even think that it was
something that I wrote,
It’s sung without conviction
it’s heard without consent,
and every little detail
is spoke but never meant…

Dreams are for everyone x2

There’s never a conclusion
and never much remorse,
but always a reflection
from which the meaning sourced…

Dreams are for everyone x2

The modesty to take a bow,
and mutter a self righteous vow
is beyond me…
Faith is wisdom, pain is truth
and still digressed upon the youth
it’s beyond me.
Track Name: The Untold Ballad of Perception
‘The Untold Ballad of Perception’

The pessimistic hedonist
with an allergy of time,
would sit and rock from side to side
craving lucid state of mind,
preparation held the key
as he led back and grinned,
a smug expression, rightly so
for he had just dropped in…

The room began to twist and turn
his swinging chops began to gurn,
reality was nonetheless
a mystery beyond distress..

His troubles seemed to come in threes
the pain, the fear, and greed,
a needless battle with himself
he slurred his last breath to succeed…

So he composed his broken brain
to deal with what occurred,
he couldn’t meet his match again
sobriety he preferred,
he took a rest and led alone
until his thoughts were stable,
and turned his head to see his tab
untouched on his bedside table.
Track Name: Interlude
‘Interlude’

Alas my dear, it’s common fear
in absence, I won’t disappear
and all we’ve said, and all we’ve done
who’d ever think, that we might need
someone
who’d ever think, that we might need someone.
Track Name: E
‘E’

Perfection, could not be summed
or softly spoken, even hummed,
‘cos you brought love and laugh to everyone.
To be so strong, and yet so frail
along the path of life you’d sail,
a sanctuary of subtle smiles belong…

And I’ll miss you,
and hold my life with open arms too..

An inspiration you have been,
the greatest type of person I’ve seen,
Forever in my heart you’ll stay
make the pain go away,
how I long for one last day…

And I’ll miss you,
and hold my life with open arms too.
