about

The Mini Skips Sheffield, UK

Markie and Vinnie are The Mini Skips from Sheffield. They play gentlefolkysmileyindiepop on acoustic instruments. They are great friends but one of them is a sweet, naive romantic and the other an aging, cynical curmudgeon and their views on some of the minutiae of life aren't perfectly aligned. These worldview differences seep into their songs turning them into rancourously melodic arguments. ... more

Track Name: Evil/Shy
You weren't looking so you didn't see me cry
You weren't looking when I wiped tears from my eyes
Yes, I was looking but you didn't realise

You weren't looking
I was looking
You weren't looking
I was looking
Are you evil?
I'm just shy!

You weren't listening so you don't know what I said
You weren't listening when I told you that I cared
Yes, I was listening but I was unprepared

You weren't listening
I was listening
You weren't listening
I was listening
Are you evil?
I'm just shy!

Ba ba ba da ba
Ba ba ba da ba
Ba ba ba da ba ba ba da
Ba ba ba da ba
Ba ba ba da ba
Ba ba ba da ba ba ba da
Ba ba ba da

So were you looking?
Yes, surreptitiously
And were you listening?
Oh so ardently
So why am I afraid?
You're as shy as me!

You were looking
I was looking
You were listening
I was listening
You're not evil
I'm just shy

You were looking
I was looking
You were listening
I was listening
You're not evil
I'm just shy

We're just shy!
Track Name: His Panic
Oh, this is your life
The one, the only one
So why aren't you out here
In my world of possibilities?

CHORUS
What if this all goes wrong?
Things will be alright
What if I get myself lost?
Let me be your guide
What if I lose everything?
We'll see what we can find
What if I haven't the heart?
I'll help you change your mind
What if I can't be bold?
I'll be strong for you
What if I'm out in the cold?
I will shelter you
What if it's too hard for me?
I'll help you to see
How can I be set free?
Come with me

Oh, this is your life
And you're not the only one
Others open doors
If you will only let them through

(Repeat chorus)

I'll let you be my guide
We'll see what we can find
You'll help me change my mind

(Repeat chorus twice)
