The Roosevelts Nashville, Tennessee

Harmony-Driven Rock with a 70’s sensibility
#WEARETHEROOSEVELTS

James Mason and Jason Kloess, two brothers in song – not blood, though maybe beards - capture a sound that melds the musical history of America (Rock, Country, Blues, Folk). They’ve skimmed inspiration from each and created a sound that feels uniquely their own. It’s “harmony driven American rock, with a 70s sensibility.” ... more

Track Name: Cold Sheets
Cold Sheets:

No one ever said it would be easy
but they never said it’d be this hard
now I’m broken into pieces
and your gunnin for my heart
long nights and lonely days
cold sheets and empty spaces
but if I could
have you back again
just one night
to pretend like we didn’t end...

If I could have you tonight
I’d wrap you up and I’d hold you tight
pretending like we still believe in a love
that felt so right till something broke and turned out the light
I could love you for an evening...if that’s alright

The hardest part of moving on
is finding grace when love is gone
Im runnin circles round myself
but all this spinnin doesn’t help
I found a god who knows my name
and I found whisky just the same
but if I could
have you back again
just one night
to pretend like we didn’t end...

If I could have you tonight
I’d wrap you up and I’d hold you tight
pretending like we still believe in a love
that felt so right till something broke and turned out the light
I could love you for an evening...if that’s alright
Track Name: Don't Wanna Let You Go
Don’t wanna let you go:

There’s a name for this
It’s written on the lips of every girl that I’ve ever kissed
In the moments before love
when our hearts are racing like a drug
and all I know is I was made for this

I don’t wanna lose that feelin...
I don’t wanna let you go

So lets hold on tight to this first kiss
it feels just like we were made for this
You’re right here and I don’t wanna let you go
These summer nights with the cheap red wine
your body layin next to mine
let’s lose ourselves in everything we know

Theres a freedom in the wind
so baby hold on tight and let’s ride the breaths were breathin in
I wanna let you in
I wanna show you where I’ve been
So why don’t we just let this all begin

Baby you give me that feelin...
And I don’t wanna let you go

So lets hold on tight to this first kiss
it feels just like we were made for this
You’re right here and I don’t wanna let you go
These summer nights with the cheap red wine
your body layin next to mine
let’s lose ourselves in everything we know

I tried
So many time, a hundred times I tried
to let you go
just to get you off my mind
but you’re up here all the time
if only I had made you mine
Track Name: Everybody Knows
Everybody Knows:

Everybody knows
that’s just how the story goes
its written in rhyme and prose
and all you gotta do is read
between the lines sometimes
the message is undefined
the meanings are intertwined
love is such a mystery

But dont let it get you down
what goes around
comes around

Everybody knows
love can break you and make you broke
make you feel like your lifes a joke
Everybody knows
love can mend you and make you whole
make you feel like you’re in control

Still we try to find
the reasons we can’t unwind
we break down and can’t stop cryin
why we gotta play these games
the outcome is all the same
love comes around again
its always a path through pain
and everybody knows it true

So don’t let it get you down
what goes around
comes around

Everybody knows
love can break you and make you broke
make you feel like your lifes a joke
Everybody knows
love can mend you and make you whole
make you feel like you’re in control
Track Name: Baby You Can Break My Heart
Baby you can Break My Heart:

Baby when you love someone you don’t do this
Ever since you left me in the dark I’ve been haunted by your kiss
It never should have come this far - you and I fallin from the stars
everyday I wake up in a house with a ghost of your love
shes wearin me out

I go to work but what can I do
every moment I’m thinkin about you
I never thought love could hurt this much
I never knew it was just what I needed

Baby you can break my heart
Baby you can break my heart.... anytime

You told me when its over it over not to come over
I understand its a part of your plan
but if im gonna move on im gonna need some closure
I don’t have to win you back cause losin you thought me what I lack

Baby you can break my heart
Baby you can break my heart
Baby you can break my heart
Baby you can break my heart

I got a list im workin on this to make sure there’s nothin that I’ll miss
like a southern belle or a hollywood hill next time around I’ll be shootin to kill
every love leaves a little scar but those are what makes us who we are
Im workin on a brand new start

So baby go ahead and break my heart...anytime

Baby you can break my heart
Baby you can break my heart
Baby you can break my heart
Baby come and break my heart...anytime
Track Name: Right Here
Right Here:

I miss your head upon my shoulder
I want your fingers next to mine
I need your arms around me one more time
We had it all in our hands
but we were...

Too young to know, too hard to show
That everything we want and need is right here at your feet
Too young to know, too blind to see
That everything we want and need is right here at home

They say the grass is always greener
until you reach that other side
is it too late to start all over now
We had it all in our hands
we had the world at the tip of our hands
but we were...

Too young to know, too hard to show
That everything we want and need is right here at your feet
Too young to know, too blind to see
That everything we want and need is right here at home
Track Name: California
California:

There’s a golden gate to the hwy 1
ringing mission bells in the setting sun
If there’s a long way home
That’s the road I’m on
But I think I’m gonna make it tonight

I left home when I was 16
I’m Just a run away chasin the west coast dream
cause when I thought I knew love
it didn’t love me
and its a hard thing waiting to be

All this California dreamin is weighin heavy on my mind
If I was good enough for leavin, why can’t I leave it all behind
All those lazy days we lay in, gettin high and drinkin wine
I should be over you...
but Im takin my time

I bought a midnight ticket with a broken heart
I packed an old suitcase for a brand new start
it’s an open road with no end in sight
tell me lord am I doin it right

All this California dreamin is weighin heavy on my mind
If I was good enough for leavin, why can’t I leave it all behind
All those lazy days we lay in, gettin high and drinkin wine
I should be over you...
but Im takin my time

There’s a little bit of you in every line I write
It’s the reason some nights that I can’t turn out the light
cause even though you’re gone
you’re the muse I’ve known
and I can’t just leave it alone

All this California dreamin is weighin heavy on my mind
If I was good enough for leavin, why can’t I leave it all behind
All those lazy days we lay in, gettin high and drinkin wine
I should be over you...
but Im takin my time
