about

Four Dollar Wine recorded half of their debut album, “We Gave It A Go” in Berlin and the other half in Brooklyn. Just like the album, Four Dollar Wine resides in both Brooklyn and Berlin. Thimo Sander, the guitarist behind the sound lives in Berlin and Scott Solary, the deep voice over the music, lives in Brooklyn (mostly). As one might expect from such a cultural mix, Four Dollar Wine’s music doesn’t fit squarely in any one genre. Solary and Sander layer simple lyrics with rich musical arrangements to produce a unique, yet somehow familiar sound. Building on elements of americana and indie rock based in traditional country sounds, Four Dollar Wine will mix well with The National, AA Bondy, Nick Cave, Mark Lanegan and the Avett Brothers as well as the traditional sounds of Townes Van Zandt, Hank Williams and Johnny Cash.

Track Name: Let's Call It Love
10 drinks into a fist fight
10 knuckles deep in blood
Don't know why you're so angry
Don't know what I've done

6 beers into a good night
6 bottles falling down
Who are all these people here?
Why'd you ask them around?

7 days to sleep the pain off
7 pills takes it away
Keeping all my curtains drawn
Night is now my day

12 more steps 'til it's over
12 less things to doubt
That should cure our hunger
That should help us out

Don't know what it is
Don't know what it does
But let's call it love
Let's call it love

Don't know what it is
Don't know what it does
But let's call it love
Let's call it love

15 ways to get home
15 words will explain
Why don't we take the long way?
Never mind the rain

2 flights up to the party
2 keys open the door
Turn around, fallin' down
Wake up on the floor

3 days after you found me
3 nights got too high
Don't know where you're going
I hope you say good-bye

1 last morning coffee
1 heart in my throat
If you're planning on leavin' me
You better grab your coat

Don't know what it is
Don't know what it does
But let's call it love
Let's call it love

Don't know what it is
Don't know what it does
But let's call it love
Let's call it love
Track Name: We Gave It A Go
You said that you're sorry
You said not to worry
Won't be like it was
Before

Memories of good times
Outnumbered by the bad times
They just don't shine bright
As before

Might want to try
Start saying goodbye
You're not gonna hurt me
Anymore

We gave it a go
We gave it a try
But now it is over
Goodbye

We gave it a go
We gave it a try
But now it's over
Goodbye

Promised you'll change things
And all of your feelings
If I would just open
The door

You said that you're sorry
You said not to worry
Won't be like it was
Before

Might want to try
Start saying good bye
You're not gonna hurt me
Anymore

We gave it a go
We gave it a try
But now it is over
Goodbye

We gave it a go
We gave it a try
But now it is over
Goodbye

Might want to try
Start saying good bye
You're not gonna hurt me
Anymore

We gave it a go
We gave it a try
But now it is over
Goodbye

We gave it a go
We gave it a try
But now it is over
Goodbye
Track Name: Some Times
Some times things are right
Most times things are wrong
Some times when you're here
Wishing you were gone

Some days the sky is clear
Most days it's just rain
No matter where you are
I'm missing you again

Some times we go so fast
Most times take it slow
Keep it to yourself
I don't want to know

Some words I said were lies
Most words I said were true
No matter what they say
They're all said for you

Some times I see you smile
Most times watch you cry
Try to understand
Try not to ask why

Some nights I hold you tight
Most nights let you go
Tomorrow's another day
Let my feelings show

Everything is here
Nothing is gone
Everything will end
Nothing can go on
Nothing can go on
Track Name: Please Come Home
I'm no good
at being alone

I'm no good
at being alone

But I'm good
at so many things
I'm good
At losing it all

Please come home
Please come home
Please come home
Please come home

I'm good
Forgetting to call

I'm good
Letting it fall

And I'm good
Getting caught in the rain

And I'm good
At missing the train

Please come home
Please come home
Please come home
Please come home

I'm good
At losing the bet

I'm good
At having regrets

Please come home
Please come home
Please come home
Come home

Yes, I'm good
At so many things

But I'm no good
At being alone

I'm no good
At being alone
Track Name: Somebody New
I'm just a man
Not the best out there
I like to smoke and drink
Sometimes I don't care

But you're my girl
The best one I found
You make me laugh and sigh
Whenever you're around

Where you are
I don't have a clue
I'm just hoping you
Don't find some body new

Wait wait
Don't throw it all away
Just need you
To give us one more day

We've had our highs
And we had our lows
We have the good times that
Only few lovers know

But now it's done
I'm here all alone
With just the ghost of you
And everything we've done

Where you are
I don't have a clue
I'm just hoping you
Don't find some body new

Wait wait
Don't throw it all away
Just need you
To give us one more day

You might see a guy
He's looking at you
But he won't treat you
Nearly half as good as I do

Don't take his hand
Don't give him your heart
Just give a me call
And one more chance to start

Where you are
I don't have a clue
I'm just hoping you
Don't find some body new

Wait wait
Don't throw it all away
Just need you
To give us one more day
Track Name: There Is No Sunshine
Its hard to know
Where I should go
It's hard to see
What you want from me
It's hard to dream
Can't get to sleep
It's hard to walk outside
There is no sunshine

It's hard to walk outside
There is no sunshine

It's hard to be
Who you want to see
It's hard to try
Try to be that guy
Hard to make you proud
Living in this crowd
It's hard to walk outside
There is no sunshine

It's hard to walk outside
There is no sunshine

It's hard to win
Going all in
Its hard to lose
Chained to your boots
Hard to get high
Working all the time
It's hard to walk outside
There is no sunshine

It's hard to walk outside
There is no sunshine

It's hard to think
Without a drink
It's hard find
Where is my mind?
It's hard to believe
There's nothing's up their sleeve
It's hard to walk outside
There is no sunshine

It's hard to walk outside
There is no sunshine
Track Name: Grey And Rainy Day
It's just another grey and
Rainy day in Berlin
It's just another grey and
Rainy day
That I'm in
Waiting to hear from my
My only friend
Trying to get through this
This bottle of gin
I wish you would call me
Just say hello
I'm tired of being
Being all alone
It's just another grey and
Rainy day in Berlin
It's just another grey and
Rainy day
That I'm in
Wish I could call you
Tell you all is fine
That I'm doing great
But that would be
Be me just lying
Hungover again
Trying to find my way
On just another
Grey and rainy day that I'm in
Wish I could do it all
Do it all again
But it's just another grey and
rainy day in Berlin
It's just another grey and
Rainy day in Berlin
It's just another grey and
Rainy day in Berlin
Track Name: Wasted Time
It's cold in here
Getting dark outside
It's all my fault
But at least I tried

Don't want me in here
Stay outside
Can't see my tears
But you know I cried

You changed the game
Went to the other side
Played by your rules
And I know you lied

I know who you are
I know where you live
You've got nothing to say
Even less to give

I'll tell my friends
Stay away from you
Tell them who you are
Tell them what you do

Might come a day
When you will understand
How to stand tall
How to be a man

Trying to forget
This wasted time

Trying to forget
This wasted time

It's dark out there
It's colder inside
We can do it alone
We can say we tried

They don't want us around
Don't want us inside
They can't see our tears
But they'll know we cried

We can leave it behind
Say goodbye today
Never speak again
Of this cold dark day

Trying to forget
This wasted time

Trying to forget
This wasted time
Track Name: Take My Sad Away
This heavy heart, it just won't go away
With me every minute of my day

Whiskey's gone and you are still around
This is truly love that I have found

You're here when nobody else wants to stay
You're here with me when they all go away

Don't quite know what it is I really need
I Just need you to give it all to me

So me make laugh, make me smile
Make me happy for today
Hold my hand, dry my tears
Take it all away

Make me laugh, make me smile
Happy for one day
Hold my hand, dry my tears
And take my
Sad away

This heavy heart, it just won't go away
Need to hear the words that you will say

You pick me up when I have fallen down
Standing with my two feet on the ground

This pain is deep and it's always here with me
With your love, I know it don't have to be

I'm not sure what it is I really need
I just need you to give it all to me

So make me laugh, make me smile
Make me happy for today
Hold my hand, dry my tears
Take it all away

Make me laugh, make me smile
Happy for one day
Hold my hand, dry my tears
And take my
Sad away
