I know I know I know I could never be your girl I know I know I know I could never be your girl I'm not quiet I'm not cute I don't do what I'm supposed to I take up too much space I don't know my place I could never be your girl I know I know I know I could never be your girl I know I know I know I could never be your girl I'm not short I'm not sweet I'm sharp of tongue and teeth I'm not demure I'm divine And I'm here to claim what's mine I know I know I know I could never be your girl I'm not here for your amusement or your validation Not a trophy or a fetish or a decoration I belong right here I'm a woman on a mission I'm not looking for approval And I don't need your permission

We don’t play well with others Who needs friends when we’ve got each other? We’ve no regrets At least not yet We walk under ladders We break all the mirrors We step on pavement cracks We don’t look back Our love will save us We’re living our best lives We’re the only ones of our kind Our skins are clean and smooth And bulletproof We walk under ladders We break all the mirrors We step on pavement cracks We don’t look back Our love will save us

Tribe 02:48
We’ve heard you cry Let’s hear you shout There’s so much pain to drown out It’s a bad world It’s a sad world It’s a hard world Don’t let it make you harder too Everybody needs to love and be loved You can’t choose your blood So find your tribe They’ll lift you up And give you life It’s a bad world It’s a sad world It’s a hard world Don’t let it make you harder too Everybody needs to love and be loved

Everything is broken I know So much for best laid plans Didn’t know the last time was the last time We’d hold hands Can’t be with the ones we love If we have loved ones at all The sadness feels so big The world so small When your hands shake When your body aches When your heart breaks Don’t let go of hope When your breath sighs When you’re bone tired When you want to die Don’t let go of hope Don’t let go Don’t let go Don’t let go of hope The loneliness is killing you It’s trying to kill me too We’re filling time to stop our minds From screaming at the solitude We’re touch starved in the dark Each room a golden cage Never been so lonely Never been so afraid When your hands shake When your body aches When your heart breaks Don’t let go of hope When your breath sighs When you’re bone tired When you want to die Don’t let go of hope

about

Our fifth EP kicks off with the furious I Could Never Be Your Girl, a raised middle finger to the people who’ll never accept us for who we are.

It’s followed by Pavement Cracks, a song about how it feels to be excitingly, unapologetically you, and Tribe, an anthem to our found families featuring a wall of guitars and a killer chorus.

The EP closes with an anthem Carrie wrote in lockdown, Don’t Let Go of Hope. She wrote it at a really low ebb; the song is about feeling lost and lonely and telling yourself, or someone you care about, to hang on.

about

HAVR Glasgow, UK

HAVR make big music. It’s music born of love and of loss, of hope and of heartbreak, the sound of big hearts beating inside bruised bodies.

HAVR are Kenny Martin (bass), David Marshall (guitar) and Carrie Marshall (guitar/vocals).

Influenced by post-punk, pristine pop and power trios, Kenny, David and Carrie are having too much fun to stick to a single genre.
