about

IPaintRainbows Birmingham, UK

IPaintRainbows is the musical moniker of student Thomas Yeomans for his projects.

Low-quality, amateur music written, performed, and produced by a seventeen year old in his bedroom. Not constricted to one genre, the music can span from gritty new wave-soft rock to dark ambient electropop to tongue-in-cheek cheesy pop! ... more

Track Name: Cornered
Passion pushing
Me into a corner.
Running and rushing
To find some kind of warner.
Shame is shoving
Me against the wall.
Feelings of loving
Set me up to let me fall.

(Oh, ah-oh) Something's burning deep inside.
(Oh, ah-oh, oh) Maybe 'cause I've lied?
(Oh, ah-oh) And the methods I've tried
(Oh, ah-oh, ah-oh) Can't be denied!

I guess that if I tell the truth
I better put down the excuse book,
One look is all it takes to distinguish a pack of lies,
Along with being confused inside.
If talk arises I shall call a truce with fate
Because the pressure would become all too great.
What do I do with this stricken strain?
And how do I get back the life it drains?

Freedom flying
Up into my face.
Can't stop crying
'Cause I know this place.
Loser's love is living
Inside my brain
And it is giving me
Nothing but pain.

(Oh, ah-oh) Took another breath sighed,
(Oh, ah-oh, oh) and sounded like I died.
(Oh, ah-oh) What's the point in having pride
(Oh, ah-oh, ah-oh) To only hide?!

I guess that if I tell the truth
I better put down the excuse book,
One look is all it takes to distinguish a pack of lies,
Along with being confused inside.
If talk arises I shall call a truce with fate
Because the pressure would become all too great.
What do I do with this stricken strain?
And how do I get back the life it drains?

You see that I'm not thinking clear,
You know that I am filled with fear.
You'll hold my hand and wipe my tears,
Or at least I hope so, for I can't take the indirect jeers.
Track Name: Butterflies (Demo)
Feels like there's hands around my neck,
I'm breaking out in sweats.
Hands around my neck,
Breaking out in sweats.
There's hands around my neck,
I'm breaking out in sweats.
Hands around my neck,
Feel like I'm breaking out in sweats.

No cure for this impure glance,
Not even a fractional glimpse of chance.
No fix for this conflict's roots,
Even if I unleash my mind's recruits.
No aid for this afraid soul,
Not even close to clinching the role.
No care for this unfair problem,
Even if I bear the proudest emblem.

One glance was all it took,
Before we both turned away.
One glance, one single look
Was just enough to say;

I'll never get my prize
Even if I compromise,
So I can't advise
The route I take through telling lies.
I'll never hit the highs
Even if I look in your eyes,
I just can't disguise
The fact that you give me butterflies.

Only one year nearer death,
While you, you catch my breath.
Roses red and violets blue,
A single heart I'll give to you.
I'm never satisfied
Even after times I've lied
Cause you won't recipricate
On whether I am tempting fate.

No support for this untaught stance,
The clues that I give can't end in advance.
No resource for these unforced suits,
Just glory for a soul and a labourer's fruits.
No hand for this unplanned goal,
Only ever-lasting journeys for a heart made of coal.
No love for this sort of problem,
Even when I bear the proudest emblem.

One glance was all I asked for,
Before I saw mistakes.
One glance, please give me more,
Cause without you, my heart breaks.

I'll never get my prize
Even if I compromise,
So I can't advise
The route I take through telling lies.
I'll never hit the highs
Even if I look in your eyes,
I just can't disguise
The fact that you give me butterflies.

But I'm still shaking in my boots;
I hope it's not goodbye!
I'm tying up my noose
For one to kick and die.
I'm criss-crossing my heart,
Stick a needle in my eye;
I'll always play my part,
Too bad you'll never try.

One glance was all it took,
Before I turned away.
One glance, a single look
Before my heart may stray...

One glance was all I wished for,
Until I saw mistakes.
One glance and I will be your
Love, no matter what it takes.

I'll never get my prize
Even if I compromise,
So I can't advise
The route I take through telling lies.
I'll never hit the highs
Even when I look in your eyes,
I just can't disguise
The fact that you give me butterflies.

You give me butterflies, you give me butterflies, you give me butterflies, me butterflies.
You give me butterflies, you give me butterflies, you give me butterflies, oh butterflies.
You give me butterflies, you give me butterflies, you give me butterflies, me butterflies.
You give me butterflies, you give me butterflies, you give me butterflies, oh butterflies.

(I'm so meek)
Make your move in the other direction,
(I am so weak)
I'll keep walking, walking on in protection.
(I'm such a freak)
Don't tempt with your eyes and charm,
(That I just can't speak)
'Cause all it does is give me greater harm.

(I am so meek)
Make your move in the other direction,
(Overly weak)
I'll keep walking, walking on in protection.
(Too much a freak)
Don't tempt with your eyes and charm,
(I cannot speak)
All it does is give me greater harm.
