Album Notes
Songwriter/producer Filippo Gaetani and former Blinker the Star frontperson Jordon Zadorozny formed transatlantic pop duo SheLoom in 2008. Gaetani, residing in Tuscany, and Zadorozny, living in Canada, met twice at Jordon's French Kiss Studio in 2009 for whirlwind 10 day sessions. However, the bulk of the album was recorded separately, with files being sent back and forth over the internet. Their debut album, "Seat Of The Empire" was released digitally in July 2010 by Minty Fresh and is now available in classic digipack mastered at Abbey Road studios and re-issued by Rayrecordings. Boasting a filmic, art rock bedrock tempered with elements of new wave and orch-pop, their debut album has been compared to iconic pop-progressive groups Fleetwood Mac, XTC, Todd Rundgren, and Yes.

Track Name: Seat of The Empire
I STARE AT CROWDS OF PEOPLE PASSING BY
HERE IN MY THOUGHTS I AM FROZEN
NO VIABLE SOLUTION IN MY MIND IT’S LIKE A CURTAIN DROPPING DOWN ON STAGE I AM SAILING IN THIS FOG THAT’S EATING UP MY BRAIN AND AS THE TIME GOES BY I AM THINKING OF THE BEAUTY OF HER EYES .YOUR EYES, SO BRIGHT AND WHEN TOMORROW COMES I WANT TO START THE DAY LOOKING AT YOU‘CAUSE I AM WAITING FOR AN ANSWER DON’T YOU SEE ME DON’T YOU HEAR MY VOICE WHEN I THINK OF YOU SO LOUD THAT I AM CRYING IN THE SKY I WANT YOU HERE WITH ME . AND AS THE LIGHTS IN TOWN ARE GLOWING IN THE DARK THERE’S A FALLING STAR I THREW IN YOUR DIRECTION AND WHEN TOMORROW COMES I WANT TO START THE DAY LOOKING AT YOU‘CAUSE I AM WAITING FOR AN ANSWER DON’T YOU SEE ME .DON’T YOU HEAR MY VOICE WHEN I THINK OF YOU SO LOUD, THAT I AM CRYING IN THE SKY I WANT YOU HERE WITH ME
Track Name: Bolero
When you want back it's critical
Want to look down, done feeling low
One night back I lost control
All around town that girl is stoned
Want to maybe lick that silver bowl
Took too much, didn't do no good
Made a wrong turn before I could go back Jack and do one more just like you said

House is on fire I'm leagues away
Hope my cats get out OK
Had a little thing that's on the side
Want to taste some of that family pride
To my surprise the habit took
Now I've got to deal with that evil book
Don't lie to me, it's Friday night
I'm cold and high, I need a surprise, don't doctor me

How many time do I have to drag it down
Deep to the family pride don't waste it
Climb to the shore from the ocean floor
Staying away just long enough to live it
Track Name: Sink Or Swim
SINK OR SWIM BEFORE THE WATER GETS TOO DEEP LIVE OR DIE THEY WON’T GIVE YOU ANOTHER TRY TURN BACK NOW OR IT WILL TAKE YOU OUT OF SIGHT IN BETWEEN LIES THE REASON WHILE WE’RE THROUGH WE MAY NOT SEE HOW MUCH WE GREW IT’S NO CRIME IF WE CHANGE OUR WAY THAT MUCH ChrusI T’S NOT A TALE FROM A FAR AWAY LAND IT’S NOT ANYTHING THAT WE COULDN’T STAND UP OR DOWN MAKES YOU LIVE WITHIN A FROWN TURN BACK TIME THERE IS MORE THAT YOU COULD FIND Chrus IT’S NOT A TALE FROM A FAR AWAY LAND IT’S NOT ANYTHING THAT WE COULDN’T STAND WE GOT SO MUCH WE LIKE TO BLAME BUT SOON IT WILL BURN JUST LIKE A FLAME
Track Name: The Way Home
V1
ANOTHER LONG DAY DRIVING HOME
RUNNING CLOUDS ABOVE THIS ROAD
TREES AND THINGS COME TO ME
FAST AND MAD TEAR MY THOUGHTS AWA..AY

COOL
SYMPHONY IN MY EARS
KILL THE SILENCE KILL THE FEARS
RUNNING CAR MANIPULATE
RIPPING FAST OUR LIFE AWAY
DO I HAVE TO SIT HERE STILL
THAT BLUE RIVER IS STREAMING HOLY WATERS

chorus1
ON A WAY BACK HOME BUT WHERE IS HOME
I WAS GONE WITH TWO HEARTS IN ONE SOUL
IF MY DREAMS WILL KEEP ME COMPANY
MY TIME AND VISION ALWAYS WILL BE FREE

V 2
CAN I SAY ONE MORE TIME
THIS IS ALRIGHT WHEN IT'S KNOCKING (SMOKIN) MY MIND
V2C
SO I THINK WHAT COULD IT BE
SHOULD I STOP
SHOULD IT STAY BEHIND ME

chorus2
SO I'LL
WAIT UNTIL THE MORNING COMES
BRING MY DREAMS AND LET THOSE WHEELS RUN

I'M ON A WAY BACK HOME BUT WHERE IS HOME
I WAS GONE WITH TWO HEARTS IN ONE SOUL

IF MY DREAMS WILL KEEP ME COMPANY
MY TIME AND VISION ALWAYS WILL BE FREE

bridge is inst and lalala

V3 after bridge
GONE DRIVE DAY, FOREST ROAD
WITH MOTHER MOON FROM ABOVE
ONCE AGAIN IN MY MIND
I CAN SEE I AM LEFT BEHIND
I SCREAMED AT ACHE, URGED AND ALL
MUST A MAN SLEEP TO RUST AND FALL

chorus3
SO I'LL WAIT UNTIL THE MORNING COMES
BRING MY DREAMS AND LET THOSE WHEELS RUN

I'M ON A WAY BACK HOME BUT WHERE IS HOME
I WAS GONE WITH TWO HEARTS IN ONE SOUL

IF MY DREAMS WILL KEEP ME COMPANY
MY TIME AND VISION ALWAYS WILL BE FREE
Track Name: The Hydra
You were called from the solar centre
From a mold of urantian design
You were cold and you love it
When you burst on the scene
I was wrong not to face it
You were what I’d call a friend

On the wall formed the shape of a hydra
On the small of her back was a line
It was strange not to waste it
I was there all by myself
When the sun came up
I was still listening to that song

Baby take these off my hands for good
Queen of grace has seen and understood
Silver trumpets rang across the dome
Sweeter by far than my precious home
Track Name: Innocent Eye
You press the mistakes of the innocent eye
No wanting no waiting, only to draw the line
If I hear the music then you force the rhyme
And you want my action, take it, I won't mind

Were you broken before
By the rose or the gods of war
In a rush you let it go
Do you want to hear the ocean roar

Words of the ancients that burn in your mind
The sound that you're chasing lately it ain't mine
When up goes the needle and down turns the light
Your heavenly body this time you won't find

And when I'm lying girl it's true
I float upon the stormy seas
You broke down, I woke up, I want you
Experience paws her mane by the river
Track Name: Under The Old Tree
RIGHT OR WRONG, THEN WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS WRONG
UNDER THE OLD TREE.


v1
UNDER THE OLD TREE I'VE SEEN FACES (traces)
OF PEOPLE LOVING AND BEING LOVED


UNDER THE OLD TREE
I'VE SEEN CHILDREN GROWING AND BECOMING PEOPLE

precho1
I'VE DREAMT OF PLACES I'VE NEVER SEEN
AND BEEN TO PLACES THAT DON'T EXIST
PLACES THAT DON'T EXIST


v2
I'VE SEEN PEOPLE RUN AWAY
I RUN AWAY TO GO SOMEWHERE I'VE NEVER BEEN TO
BUT THEN I WANT TO TOUCH THE GROUND
AND CAN'T FIND MY WAY HOME, ..BUT I AM LIVING

precho2
TRAPS AND MIRACLES
KEPT OUR LIFE
REAL AND WORTH LIVING

Chorus
IT'S RIGHT OR WRONG BUT WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS WRONG
UNDER THE OLD TREE

IS IT RIGHT OR IS IT WRONG, IT HAS TO PASS
UNDER THE OLD TREE

IT'S RIGHT OR WRONG BUT
WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS WRONG
UNDER THE OLD TREE




AND THIS IS RIGHT AND THIS IS WRONG WHATEVER
IS IT HAS TO GO UNDER THE OLD TREE


v3
THE BRANCHES THAT HELD ME TIGHT
THE BRANCHES THAT CAN HUG THE INFINITE SKY
I'M LAYING (STAYING) DOWN HERE, BETWEEN THE SHADOWS OF ITS MIGHTY ARMS


pc3
AND THAT'S THE PLACE WHERE I (WE) WANT TO BE
THE PLACE THAT REALLY DON'T EXIST THE PLACE THAT DON'T EXIST
Track Name: One More Day
REMEMBER US WALKING ON THE GRASS BUT WHERE ARE WE NOW ?JUST WAIT A MINUTE I GUESS IT’S NOT TRUE I’M HAVING THE FEELING IT’S TOO FAST BUT I HAVE TO GO NOW I PACKED MY BAGS AND IT’S TIME TO LEAVE WELL I KNOW THAT THERE ARE THINGS SO MUCH EASIER TO FACE BUT IF YOU GIVE ME JUST A LITTLE WHILE…LET ME HAVE A SINGLE CHANCE AND MAYBE I STAY JUST ONE MORE DAYChorus

Track Name: All For Love
One day I will take you to my dreams
So I can show you how
So I can show you how floating and flying is easy

One I can tell you my secret
how I can walk on clouds
So i can show you how climbing the sky is so easy

So I can show you we're floating and flying for love, love, love,love….

One day when we'll walk on the thin ice
we will be gliding and smiling recalling the sweet things in life

One day i will swim inside your soul
Taking the pictures of your secret emotions

Only to know you've been running and crying for love.
