about

The Minor Three Boston, Massachusetts

The Minor Three are a classic power trio...sort of. There is dynamic energy like the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and heavy blues-tinged riffs like The Black Keys. The writing is personal and intelligent and the sound is fresh and modern with references to a myriad of influences, old and new. ... more

Track Name: Foreign Bodies
I feign control
A hug becomes a hold
Now I can't let you go
A bite on my ear
A tug on your hair
I touch you and I'm over my fear

Then you left me standing there like a fool
How can you be so cruel?

Some other time
We'll let our faces collide
And I know I'm inside your mind
You could be the exception
Could be my happy ending
Maybe you won't make me cry this time

I keep my expectations high as a rule
How can you be so cruel?

You said you need your time
That our love won't survive
Feed me all of your cliche lines
But the fact of the matter
Is this shouldn't have happened
Have your thoughts before you have actions

How could you let me fall so hard for you?
How can you be so cruel?
Track Name: Let Me Down Gently
Can't get you off of my mind
Your soft white skin and those mellow eyes
You're way out of my league
You could have a better man than me

I know this might not last too long
Can you let me down gently when you're gone
You set my mind at ease
Can you let me down gently when you leave

I want someone fine I can be there for
Who knows what I like, but still likes me more
Can set me on fire, but I feel no pain
The burning won't stop until I see you again

I know this might not last too long
Can you let me down gently when you're gone
You set my mind at ease
Can you let me down gently when you leave
Track Name: Set In Stone
Leave my heart alone, it can't be had
Leave my heart alone, it can't be had
Don't you give it up
My heart don't feel no love anymore
Kayla, don't

Don't set your love in stone or you'll regret
Don't set your love in stone or you'll regret
Pass it all around
Cause once you settle down you'll turn cold
Kayla, don't

Pretty girl, your looks will get you far
Pretty girl, your looks will get you far
But I don't trust anyone
You'll end up in my bed then I'll be gone
Kayla, don't

We're more than friends
Let's leave it at that
It's better this
Than letting you down in the end
Track Name: My One And Only
No one wants to be alone
But the feelings come and then they're gone
I don't ask for much, but I never get enough
You're my one and only temporary love

I had a love built to perfection
Add this broken heart to my collection
I don't ask for much, but I never get enough
You're my one and only temporary love

Someone told me I could find the one
But I think someone made it up
So I'll take what you give me, but it ain't what I need
I can't count on you to care for me
Track Name: The Weight
I set the letter down
The words too much to hold
My hands, they shake from fear I've never known

Too paralyzed to hide it
My friend, he says it's fine
But he doesn't look me in the eye

Something I've done
Has taken hold
It's in my bones

For a moment I unravel
And I'm afraid to ask
To share the weight that's weighing down my back

And I don't like what I'm told
So I don't do what I'm told
And I don't share my burdens anymore

Something I've done
Has taken hold
It's in my bones

I don't like what I'm told
I've got to let it go
But I'm always letting go...
I'm always moving on...
