about

Brian Hyken New Orleans, Louisiana

Brian Hyken & The Wanderlust is a blatantly raw blues rock & roll story told through the eyes of a 25-year old hustling heart-throb.

The vintage rock sound is completely authentic, from the Fender Vibro King amp, SRV Stratocaster to the analog tape recording of the debut EP.

The band’s style fits right in with the music of Gary Clark Jr., Jack White, and Kings of Leon.

Track Name: Not Coming Home
Hey Baby don’t you wanna know
Why the weather is getting cold
Why your breath fogs up the glass
And leaves you living in your past
It’s in a story, long time ago
Two broken hearts, one hit the floor
Is it you?
I’m drowning too

Its not me, you’re looking for
I’m out the door

People change, people grow
I never knew it could get so cold, get so old
Only time would show
Im gonna take it now, im riding in
Im gonna ride it, gonna ride it
Gonna ride the train home
But all alone.

Its not me, you’re looking for
I’m out the door…

I don’t wanna waste no time
Gotta say what’s on my mind
Cant leave you behind
But I wake up in a smoke house
Gonna need a snow plow
If im gonna make it out
If im gonna make it, make it, make it with you
What can I do.

It’s not me you’re looking for
I’m out the door

OWWWW (solo)

Now I’m in a different place, with a different taste
I’m glad I hadn’t stayed
I don’t think that I could have behaved
I should have never played
Time is blown away
I’ve thrown it all away
I just can’t help it
I wish I had something to say
You wouldn’t get it today

Now it’s not me, you’re looking for
I’m out the door.

Hey baby, not coming home
Not coming home
Track Name: Break
Late at night, walking home couldn’t say that I’m alone.
But I’m not with
You and I laugh and cry, wish I had you with me tonight
We’d make it to my better times, couldn’t lie, breath so soft against my side
Every night’s I roam, places I go nothing ever feels like home, nothing ever felt like you

Couldn’t have you where I wanted it
And the rain is coming down on us
All the mirrors you have broken
Why did you go and have to try and make me break
Why did you try to make me break

Oh let it run, through my blood
Got me feelin pretty numb
I just can’t help it,
Even though it hurts so bad I need you
You couldn’t let me go
Ya me oh my, please don’t cry
I had no alibies
But no I’m not sorry
I walk the line, did my time
Freedoms just a state of mind
Did I owe you something

Couldn’t have you where I wanted it
And the rain is coming down on us
All the mirrors you have broken
Why did you go and have to try and make me break
Why did you try to make me break
Oh, break

Oh early sun, gotta run, she’s the one that makes me think of you
But still could never be true
Stares far off, drowning in thought’s
Love was lost, at such a cost
I lost in the coin toss

Couldn’t have you where I wanted it
And the rain is coming down on us
All the mirrors you have broken
Why did you go and have to try and make me break
Why did you try to make me break
Oh, break
Track Name: Another You
Back in town, couldn’t tell you where I’m going now
Could you be found, are you around?
How long has it been
Since you’ve seen my face
Do you feel the same
Well I haven’t changed
Now I’m livin down south, in new Orleans
Doin southern things
But I need you

When the suns down
In our hometown
And he’s not around
Just want to take you home, well keep the lights down
When I lay upi down
And in the morning it will feel like you’re
Dreamin every day
Dreamin every way
Had me waiting
Had me waiting
Had me waiting
Thinking I’m gonna break
But you didn’t see it my way

Driving around, on a Saturday night
All the people are out
They’re checking you out
Oh memory lane
Where memories made
Where my heart breaks
Cause I need you

When the suns down
In our hometown
And he’s not around
Just want to take you home, well keep the lights down
When I lay down
And in the morning it will feel like you’re
Dreamin every day
Dreamin every way
Had me waiting
Had me waiting
Had me waiting
Thinking I’m gonna break
But you didn’t see it my way

(bridge)

Waitin down south
Waitin for something new
Waiting down south
Waiting for something like you
I’m not gonna be the one who’s gonna be used
Waiting down south
Waiting for something new
Waiting for another you

(solo)

When the suns down
In our hometown
And he’s not around
Just want to take you home, well keep the lights down
When I lay down
And in the morning it will feel like you’re
Dreamin every day
Dreamin every way
Had me waiting
Had me waitng
Had me waiting
Thinking I’m gonna break
But you didn’t see it that way
Track Name: Behind The Glass
Stuck in a capsule made of glass
I lie here and feel time pass
The air I breath is making me ill
No one here is made a steal
And I know, it’s just the calm before the storm
The lights are low but no ones home
And nothing seems to rattle my bones
It’s just the way I feel when I’m gone

Ten years gone, got nothing to show
Following trouble since the day you were born
Look in the mirror and hate what you see
A reflection of what you should be.
And you know its never going to last
Time will change, oh so fast
And nothing seems to rattle your bones
Its just the way you feel when you’re gone

Solo…

Its just the calm before the storm
The lights are low, but no ones home
And nothing seems to rattle our bones
Its just the way we feel when were gone

Drivin all night, haven’t slept for days
Forget my home and forget my name
Riding that train, that never ends
Is this what it feels like to be a man
Track Name: When She's Gone
Wake up with the sun in my eyes
Fallen asleep again, outside
Loosing all sense of time
Been watching the moon die
I’ve been watching the sunrise
Loosing all sense of time

Could it be cause my baby, yeah she left me
Could it be cause I’m all alone
Could it be cause I have no place to call home

When she’s gone, now

Last interruption has happened again
Cut me open, and stick your knife in
Only going to give you one chance, my friend
Walked into a room, just the other day
Had a hundred eyes, starring my way
Didn’t know what to do or what to say
So I popped a pill and walked away.

Could it be cause my baby, yeah she left me
Could it be cause I’m all alone
Could it be cause I have no place to call home

When she’s gone, now


Wake up in the morning to it now
Feeling kinda dirty from it all
It’s a story about a boy, who had it all
Now just a man, who plans to fall
And everyone is talking too loud
I just wanna fight through the crowd
What am I supposed to do now?
Think I’m gonna scream out loud

I gotta funny feeling going now
