40 Engine

40 Engine are a recording project featuring ALL's Scott Reynolds and Stephen Egerton (from both ALL and The Descendents) and they came to life this past weekend. Here's their song Sunny Disposition. Bass is played by Brian Gorder and the Drums by Brian's brother, Andy. Here's the live youtubage from Fort Collins filmed by Matt from Daghouse.


And She's Got Everything which was a song Stephen Egerton wrote as a Christmas present for his wife.

Lyrics

She's Got Everything.

V1:
It's almost Christmas day, and I can't find a thing
I lay awake at night and I tossed and turned
stared at the computer till my eyes burned
but nothing I can find is making any sense

I hope that she won't be upset

CH1:
But what am I supposed to get for the girl who's got
everything
a laugh that makes you smile
a touch that puts my heart to rest
something in her eyes
and I already bought the diamond ring
she's got everything

V2:
She's not the kind of girl who wants the finer things
doesn't want a closet full of fancy clothes
doesn't need a pile of ribbons and bows
but I want her to know how much she means to me

I don't want to make her upset
cuz I wouldn't ever forget

CH2:
But what am I supposed to get for the girl who's got
everything
the moon, the stars and sky
a touch that puts my heart to rest
something in her eyes
and I've got everything she'll ever need
she's got everything

V3:
Now it's Christmas Eve and I'm still at a loss
it looks a little empty underneath the tree
and I know this reflects pretty badly on me
I really hope she knows I'd give her anything

I hope that she won't be upset
cuz I wouldn't ever forget
and I don't want to regret

CH3:
But what am I supposed to get for the girl who's got
everything
a laugh that makes me smile
warmth that helps me sleep at night
something in her eyes
that shakes me like no thing I've ever seen
she's got everything

Thanks for posting this. I wanted to make one correction though - thiese clips were filmed at the Triple Nickel Tavern in Colorado Springs, Colorado (not Ft. Collins). I was right up front for this performance (and you can catch glimpses of me on the vids). I also used to book all the bands for this bar, which is owned by JJ Nobody from The Nobodys and Drag the River.
