about

Foxxhound Los Angeles, California

Daniel & Lizzi are an unlikely pair. A songwriter with a background in punk rock and a classically trained cellist, these two met one summer and created a sound that defied their personal conventions. With Ron McGill on drums and Brent Brandon on keyboards, Foxxhound plays upon their differences by highlighting their unique styles in songs that range from folk-pop tunes to bluesy ballad ... more

Track Name: La Gloria
Verse 1
I’ve been beaten up, down to the core
Always coming back and asking for more
All the while I sang ooh ooh ooh oooh
Yeah all the while I sang ooh ooh ooh oooh
I can see that you’ve been here before
And that one day you’ll show the world what you’re worth

Chorus
Cause you are La Gloria
Yes you are love’s warrior

Verse 2
I’ve been a fuck up most of my life
Never one to run from a fight
I’m the slippery son with the slickest silver tongue and black eye/I
Can see that you’ve been hurt, just like me baby
One day you’ll show the world you are…

Chorus
The one, La Gloria
Yes you are love’s warrior

Verse 3
Well have they never heard that it’s a sin to kill a mocking bird? Yes I wanta know
Have they never heard that it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird?
Sing strong your song and show the world that…

Chorus
You are La Gloria
Yes you are love’s warrior
Yes you are, you are, yes you are the one
Cause you are the one I love
So keep singing…
Track Name: Home
Verse 1
When I was a little, my mama said, I was too sensitive
That’s why she cried all the time
But oh how I’ve grown, into this charming man
With all these charming plans
Cause no one wants to feel alone, so I will stick with what I know

Chorus 1
Singing, drinking with my friends, writing songs till 3am
Forgive me Ma’, it’s all I ever wanted to be
I need someone to take my hand, show me that they understand
Cause I don’t mind dying trying to find my own way home

Verse 2
Cause all of my life I’ve been a lonely man, that's why I always ran
From those I should have loved
So I took all that pain and put it in 6 strings
And let those holy chords sing the truth
That’s all I’ve ever hoped to do, and that’s why I am here with you

Chorus 2
Singing, drinking with my friends, writing songs till 3am
Forgive me Ma’, it’s all I ever wanted to be
I need someone to touch my soul, to be a rock and fit the role
Well I don’t mind dying trying to find my own way home

Bridge/Outro
So are you going to come outside and play?
Cause I don’t wanta go home, yeah I don’t wanta go home…
I just wanta go home …
Track Name: Times
Verse 1
I dove into the sea, peeled off my skin
And let the salt seep in
I took to the hills, tore off my gills
I needed to be filled

Chorus
Humming honeybee, won’t you sting?
Drowning in my pride
While you keep tuggin’, at my tides
The moon lives in your skin

Verse 2
I came into your arms, felt safe from harm
And turned off my alarms, all my days I’d spend
With you in bends, you made me laugh again

Chorus
Humming honeybee, won’t you sting?
Drowning in my pride
While you keep tuggin’
At my tides
The moon lives in your skin
Track Name: Seams
Chorus
I’m holding on so it seems, I come undone at the seams
I carry on so it seems, I’m holding on at the seams

Verse 1
Like Lennie ‘Of Mice & Men’, I am doing the best I can
I keep rolling on, like a chain gang song, even when…

Chorus
I’m holding on so it seems, I come undone at the seams
I carry on so it seems, I’m holding on at the seams

Verse 2
When I was lost, cold and alone
Your love warmed me to my bones
As the moon shall rise, you ignite my nights, with lavender skies
Even when…

Chorus
I’m holding on so it seems, I come undone at the seams
I carry on so it seems, I’m holding on at the seams
Track Name: When You WIsh Upon A Bar
Verse 1
I work hard every day, just to take care of my babe
And to make this house a home
But at night I sometimes roam, as I take the long way home

Pre-Chorus 1
Cause I've been upon a star wishing,
My nights away in a dreamers daze, until I met you

Chorus 1
That's why I'm crazy for you
That's why I'd do anything for you
Yes I'm so crazy for you
That's why I'd do anything for you

Verse 2
All these girl and their tattoos, all dressed up in attitude
They love it when I make em’ laugh and scream
But you're the one I'll sing to sleep
Yes I will hold you while you dream

Pre-Chorus 2
Cause I've been upon a bar drinking,
My days away in a drunken haze, until I met you

Chorus 2
That's why I'm crazy for you
That's why I'd do anything for you

Bridge / Outro
You're my truth and resolution, in a world full of delusion
Don't know what I would do without you
Don't know what I would do cause I love you
Track Name: Run For Cover Girl
Verse 1
Aren't you tired of always running, from something or someone?
You text me that everything is going great, so why then are you acting so strange?
I heard you quit your job then skipped out on rent
Ya moved back home now on unemployment
Just like your dad, well ain't that grand?

Pre Chorus 1
You may hate me when you hear this song
But aren't you're the one who said to your only friend, “so long”?

Verse 2
Why did you leave her stranded and alone?
When you're the one that she called 'home'
Maybe the real world just got too damn hard
Or you figured girl power only goes so far
Just like your mom, so sing along

Chorus
So, so long and goodbye

Pre Chorus 2
You may hate me when you hear this song
You may say to me "fuck off"
But aren't you the one who said to your only true friend, “so long”?

Bridge
You're such a pretty girl, so run for cover girl, such a clever girl
That you've fooled all of your friends, oh except her
Yeah you've fooled everyone, except yourself

Chorus
So, so long and goodbye
Track Name: Love, Don't You Forget About Me
Verse & Chorus 1
My heart’s about to burst, I wanta exonerate the hurt
Cause there are so many, so many ways to feel alone, and I would know
Casualties of drunken revelries, how they turn into Sunday morn
Giving her all my might on a lonely Saturday night
So love please don’t you forget about me
Oh love, don’t you forget about me
Oh love, please forgive me

Verse & Chrous 2
A girl named Alex told me once, what’s the point in hanging on
When this world that we live in is so full of wrong
I told her “love is the reason, it’s the greatest healer,
It can turn an atheist into a believer”
Cause for so long I tried to deny its existence, I was a fool
So love please don’t you forget about me
Oh love, don’t you forget about me
Oh love, please forgive me

Bridge
Cause I’ve been trying my whole wretched life
Only to find to my surprise, you’re the reason why oh why…

Verse & Chorus 3
My heart’s about to burst, I wanta exonerate the heart
Cause there are so many, so many ways to feel alone, and I would know
Casualties of drunken revelries, how they turn into Sunday morn
Giving her all my might on a lonely Saturday night
So love please don’t you forget about me
Oh love, don’t you forget about me
Oh love, please forgive me
Track Name: Carousel
Verse 1
Build me up, knock me down with that old feeling
When we used to believe that loves all you need
So hoist me up, smack me around like a drunken clown,
Waiting for his queue to perform for you
Look at us now, look at us now

Chorus 1
I wanta feel love again
And look back on the ways of settling
When we kiss goodnight, it feels like a chore and a bore
And the way that we fight ain't fun anymore

Verse 2
The scratches that you used to leave on my chest
Showing the world he is mine don't you dare contest
Well you know I love you, you know that I do, baby please
You know I love you but right now I just wanta leave
Look at me now, look at me now

Chorus 2
I wanta feel love again
And look back on the ways of settling
When we kiss goodnight, it feels like a chore and a bore
And the way that we fight ain't fun anymore
Yes the way that we fight ain’t fun anymore

Bridge
I'm bored to death
Day after day, again and again and again

Outro
Spinning round and around on this carousel
Once was our amusement, now it’s a living hell
Get me off
Track Name: The Devil You Know
Verse 1
Hold on I won’t go nowhere
Death is the only thing of which I’m not scared
‘Cause the corpses are laughing, so naked and bare
They’re livin’ the life love, and hell it ain’t fair

Pre Chorus 1
Press on me, my giving tree
We’ll live too, before we’re through

Verse 2
I asked my mama for advice
She said “Baby, you know all things come at a price
Heaven and hell, sorrow and strife
I gave these things to you the day I gave you your life.”

Pre Chorus 2
I had a dream I was the welfare queen
Draped in green where my pride used to be

Chorus
I ain’t never need no favors
So you can keep all your saviors
I’m taking back what was never mine
I’m not wasting no more time

Verse 3
Now I know there’s no God but I still yearn to confess
All my lies and my sins sittin’ tight in my chest
They say the devil you know is the one you should trust
So I’ll leave all my faith in the lap of my lust

Pre Chorus
Press on me, my giving tree
We’ll live too, before we’re through

Chorus
I ain’t never need no favors
So you can keep all your saviors
I’m taking back what was never mine
I’m not wasting no more time
