about

Trevor Rebello Johannesburg, South Africa

Trevor Rebello is a singer/songwriter from Johannesburg. 'Slow Horses', his debut EP, paints a picture of a man’s foolish resilience and inability to turn a blind eye to lady luck. It explores the onset of a mid-life crisis that’s arrived two decades too soon and tells the familiar tale of that stage in life where you’re forced to grow up. Most of all it focuses on the importance of last chances. ... more

Track Name: Not Getting Any Younger
Build and break from the day I was born
I been building so long I forgot what I’m building for
Some people stare across a deadbeat’s wall
Just waiting for the day it falls

I built my house on an old man’s grave
Now he haunts me form those picture frames
I heard a voice in the hall today
Saying you just like me, my son
Oh now you just like me, why do you run?

And I try try try try try
But never find find find find find
A little place to call my own
So won’t you turn this big old house in to a home?

Full proof plans on my workshop hands
The spirit levels I don’t shake but the blood burns in my veins
Curse the day I found my way
To the side of the street where rich men, they die before they live

And I try try try try try
But never find find find find find
A little place to call my own
So won’t you turn this big old house in to a home?

And you can board up all the windows and doors
Sell my soul on the auction line (You’re not getting any younger)
And you can knock down all the ceilings and walls
But you won’t find what you’re looking for (You’re not getting any younger)

They call it home! Where’s my home? Home!

And I try try try try try
But never find find find find find
A little place to call my own
So won’t you turn this big old house in to a home?
Track Name: Slow Horses
Oh these days these dying days
I only see the devil and his wicked ways
I feel it, you better believe it!
And lady luck she knows my name
She often comes around but she never stays
She could be, the biggest flirt in the city!

I drink my whisky from the bottle
It burns no worse than any scream from deep within me
I drink my whisky from the bottle
Time tells a tale of how fortune favours the brave
Today might be my day

Lay a trail so the birds can feast
Tame the appetite of a hungry beast
Can I find, the right place or the right time?
You fool me once you fool me twice
Rob a fool of money but it never dies
You know me, you know what I could be!

I drink my whisky from the bottle
It burns no worse than any scream from deep within me
I drink my whisky from the bottle
Time tells a tale of how fortune favours the brave
Today might be my day

I got a will that wont stop burning
I know the wheel keeps turning over
I got a will that wont stop burning
I know the wheel keeps turning over

Today might be my day
Track Name: The Love You Sell
I bought you flowers but we both know that we’ll never bloom
We’d talk for hours but you never could say something new
It’s on the tip of your tongue
From the barrel of my gun
Don’t you see? Don’t you see?
When our skin wears thin
Don’t you see? Don’t you see?

And everything’s good and well but it’s the love you sell
I’m giving mine for free
And won’t you help yourself
I’m giving mine for free

You said your body was mine
But we both know it’s online
For every man to see and live out every fantasy
By the skin of my teeth
You burning coals on my feet
Don’t you see? Don’t you see?
When our hearts wear thin
Do we bleed? Do we bleed?

And everything’s good and well but it’s the love you sell
I’m giving mine for free
And won’t you help yourself
I’m giving mine for free

But it’s the love you sell
I’m giving mine for free
If you don’t love yourself
Then how you gonna love on me?

You gotta love yourself (Don’t you see? Don’t you see?)
You gotta love yourself (Don’t you see? Don’t you see?)
Track Name: What About Me
I gotta straighten out these veins
Walk off the growing pains
I got a venomous dream and it poisons the stream that we drink from

I gotta wrestle with these words
I gotta learn to come to terms
With a white picket fence and a few married friends with their own lives

And I know I use your sweetness to cover up my weakness
And it’s only a dream
You say, what about me?
What about me?

I gotta level with these lies
I gotta find a nine to die
I got a feverish hope and a sweat that will soak to the bone

Some call it a disease
This over eagerness to please
When you down on your knees leaves a bad taste

And I know I use your sweetness to cover up my weakness
And it’s only a dream
You say, what about me?
What about me?

Some of us grow up in circumstance
And some of us are broken by the ones we love
Some of us will live our lives on hopeless paper dreams

And I know I use your sweetness to cover up my weakness
And it’s only a dream
You say, what about me?
What about me?
Track Name: Redlight
A red light, the first bite of an awkward love affair
The stop start, beating heart lovers coming up for air
And look now, look now, look at what we’ve gone and done
We had fun, cut and run, leave it for a rainy day

And it’s ok to wanna run with the broken hearted
And I can tell you got a way with the words my darling
All the other guys are broke so we better get started
It’s ok to give your love away

So excuse all the clues and the cheap one liners (it’s alright)
All the games that we play, can we just get started (It’s ok)
Me and you we abuse what the good Lord gave us
We just want to give our love away

All my life I been waiting, waiting for you to say
All my life I been waiting, waiting for you to say

And it’s ok to wanna run with the broken hearted
And I can tell you got a way with the words my darling
All the other guys are broke so we better get started
It’s ok to give your love away

A red light, the insight to know how it’s gonna end
A tongue tied fist fight, must be Saturday again

So excuse all the clues and the cheap one liners (it’s alright)
All the games that we play, can we just get started (It’s ok)
Me and you we abuse what the good Lord gave us
We just want to give our love away

All my life I been waiting, waiting for you to say
All my life I been waiting, waiting for you to say
Track Name: Worst You Could Do
Beg, steal and borrow to get to tomorrow
What’s the worst you could do?
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue
What’s the worst you could do?

And I know it all, I just finally took the time to say

You wear a white dress, you know it’s a sin to look so proud
And I’ll wear a black suit, to help you, to blend with the crowd
Because I know it all, I just finally took the time to write it down

Now you walking down the aisle like you got no place else to run
What’s the worst I could do?
And I’m following your footsteps, breaking one by one
What’s the worst I could do?

And I know it all, I just finally took the time to say

You wear a white dress, you know it’s a sin to look so proud
And I’ll wear a black suit, to help you, to blend with the crowd
Because I know it all, I just finally took the time to say

Stop! Whose got any good reason why these two should not be wed
While I hold my breath
I said stop! Please stand I got a different plan
Break up a happy home
Well I hold breath inside

I just finally took the time to write it down
I just finally took the time to write it down
Sleep with one eye open (I just finally took the time to write it down)
Sleep with one eye open (I just finally took the time to write it down)
Track Name: Oh My Soul
I don’t take no photographs, I keep the memories in my head
And one day should I forget your smiling face
Then we both know I wouldn’t be anything

Oh my, oh my soul! Has been breaking since I was ten years old
Oh my, oh my soul! Has been breaking since I was ten years old

And they say life goes on and we go strong
And they say life goes on but they were wrong
But they were wrong!

No one came the day that you left
The clothes you wore lay folded on your bed
And I was too young to understand that
Forever meant exactly what it meant

Oh my, oh my soul! Has been breaking since I was ten years old
Oh my, oh my soul! Has been breaking since I was ten years old

And they say life goes on and we go strong
And they say life goes on but they were wrong
But they were wrong!
