about

"Dynamite, charging change of pace from these much-loved Washington, D.C.-area kings of power pop. Killer melody; loud guitars and a drum track that demands respect. 'The Girl Holding Out for Me' bodes well for Vegas With Randolph's next album. A+!"
Alan Haber, Alan Haber's Pure Pop

In April of 2013, on a NYC bound train (where the guys would meet up with, and Eric perform with, David Myhr), John began humming the chorus refrain of the song that eventually would become "The Girl Holding Out For Me." (Incidentally, this same train ride's return trip also gave birth to the title and lyrical concept for "My Lost Colony" from VWR's "Rings" album). The climbing chorus melody was so infectious it soon developed into this track, which has now become the first single released from VWR's upcoming fourth album (as further songs are still being written and recorded for that effort).

With "The Girl Holding Out For Me," VWR returns in force with a tale of the longing, the faith, and the patience/impatience of youth. It also marks the first track featuring VWR's phenomenal new drummer, the formidable DC ace musician Andy Hamburger. We hope you dig this new song, and stay tuned for more to follow!

lyrics

THE GIRL HOLDING OUT FOR ME
(Ratts/Kern)

she's always been a dreamer
she writes poetry and prose
it can be frustrating
when every word must be just so

she knows all about the brownings
from the letters that they penned
she wants the same in her life
to "count the ways" that never end

someday her prince will come
she'll find her only one
desire will turn to love someday

and she's haunted
she can taste how sweet it'd be
to be wanted
by the only one she needs
and the longing feeds her heartache
as she waits impatiently
yeah, i'm holding out
for the girl holding out for me

she scribbles in her notebook
covered with hearts and sketched vignettes
she's making plans for someday
with a boy she hasn't met

someday her prince will come
she'll find her only one
desire will turn to love someday
her restless spirit will find it's mate

and she's haunted
she can taste how sweet it'd be
to be wanted
by the only one she needs
and the longing feeds her heartache
as she waits impatiently
yeah, i'm holding out
for the girl holding out for me

if i could reassure her
let her know i'm waiting too
i love thee with a love
with a love i seem to lose

and she's haunted
she can taste how sweet it'd be
to be wanted
by the only one she needs
and the longing feeds her heartache
as she waits impatiently
yeah, i'm holding out
i'm holding out
i'm holding out
for the girl holding out for me
