Amber Run: Fickle Game

Amber Run is a British band from Nottingham, UK composed of Joe Keogh, Will Jones, Tom Sperring and Henry Wyeth. The band has released one album and three EPs while being signed to RCA Records. They were initially called Amber but were forced to change their name to avoid a conflict with the German dance-pop singer of same name. The band has played mostly in the UK and Ireland. Joe Keogh, Tom Sperring and Will Jones were originally friends from Buckinghamshire at Dr Challoner’s Grammar School where they played in an alt.rock band. With Felix Archer from the same area and Wyeth from Kent, they met while studying at University of Nottingham. They all studied for degrees in Humanitie and Law, but abandoned their studies in second year to focus on the band. Keogh initially performed under his own name and started to get ‘a bit of momentum [so] we sat down and jammed out one day and there was something about it. It was so much better than what I was doing solo, so we started a band’. Thanks to local BBC presenter Dean Jackson the band featured on the BBC Introducing stage at Reading Festival in 2013 was only the fourth show the band played. Their presence attracted a number of A&R men to the show and after a few weeks of negotiating the band signed to RCA. Wikipedia®

Amber Run: Fickle Game

Amber Run: “We are delighted to reveal ‘Fickle Game’ from our new album ’For A Moment, I Was Lost’. It’s a song about self-reflection in the music industry – how being in a band can, if you let it, stop being spontaneous and easy and instead become overly political and eventually exhausting”

Amber Run: Fickle Game Lyrics:
I wanna be older, I wanna be stronger
I don’t wanna fall at this time
I wanna be quicker, I wanna get closer
Don’t wanna feel where’s the past

Cause I’m fast enough to get in trouble, but not fast enough to get away
I’m old enough to know I’ll end up dying
And not young enough to forget again

It’s all a fickle game, It’s all a fickle game,
Oh it’s all a fickle game we play.

I wanna be older, I wanna be stronger.
I don’t wanna fall at this time.
I wanna be quicker, I wanna get closer.
I Don’t wanna feel where’s the past.

Cause I’m fast enough to get in trouble, and not fast enough to get away
And I’m old enough to know I’ll end up dying
And not young enough to forget again

It’s all a fickle game,
Oh it’s all a fickle game we play

It’s a fickle game.
Cause I’m fast enough to get in trouble, and not fast enough to get away
And I’m old enough to know I’ll end up dying
And not young enough to forget again

I’m sick of fickle games. It’s life a fickle game we play.
