about

The Thirstbusters’ sophomore album “Caught Between” expresses musical, lyrical, and conceptual sensitivity far beyond their years. While something remains from their first record, that jazzy Pop/Rock magic that got them on Disney, their sound has clearly matured. Current Music Majors at notable colleges and conservatories across the country, the band incorporates instrumental solos as well as delicate arrangements for strings, horns, and a gospel choir. Even with this polished sophistication, a result of their training, ultimately the songs are catchy and relatable.

The title track of “Caught Between,” reflects something we all go through. For the band, it’s about their personal passage through college, a time-tested transition from childhood to adulthood. But “it’s also about the multifaceted essence of personality, and finding a balance within ourselves” says lead singer Zach Sorgen. “The way we feel, think, and act depends on context, as do our musical preferences.” So rather than choosing just one direction for the new album, The Thirstbusters make a conscious decision to embrace the eclectic. Each song shows a different side of their experience, from philosophical self-discovery to light-hearted party anthems. This driving concept is also present on the album cover, in which each band member appears multiple times, caught between different sides of themselves. The music ranges from hard rock to funky RnB to chill acoustic. But even with this extreme diversity of genre, “Caught Between” somehow remains cohesive and unified, making The Thirstbusters unique yet recognizable.

Track Name: Caught Between
Caught Between Time

Verse 1
Sound the bell
Bid farewell
Walk away
From the place
That is everyday

Holdin tight
It’s alright
Moving on
Hear that summer song
Still the past is in replay

Pre-chorus
Pictures perfect packed away
Will we last? I’ll wait to see
I know there’s so much more to say
But for now I’ll let this be
Because I’m Gone

Chorus
Forget and be forgotten
We know the ropes will fray
Wish I could break the clock in
Can’t close my eyes to yesterday

The fact but not the feeling
When will I cross the line?
All that tomorrow’s stealing
Some days I’m caught between
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/t/thirstbusters-lyrics/caught-between-lyrics.html ]

Verse 2
Now
Now and then
I pretend
We’re only finger-painting
Somehow there’s youth still in the air

Though naïve
I believe
Spent my nights
Working on foresight
So I can prove that I’ve been there

Pre-chorus

Chorus

Bridge
Never gonna go back
Never gonna have that
Never gonna let you run my day again

But don’t know what’s out there
Hear it come louder
If only I could get back every hour spent on you
But now you’re gone

Outro
Singin’ Please please please
I can’t believe
I’m caught between
I need to make you mine
Oh I can’t save time
Track Name: Bad Bad Girl
Bad Girl
VERSE
Now baby I
Was just traveling by
When you roped me in
Then you knocked me out

And baby you
You try to confuse
You tied me here
Got me lost in doubt

REFRAIN
Now I know the reason why
You're a bad, bad girl

VERSE 2
And I can't see
What you want with me
Why you closed the blinds
And then you closed my eyes
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/thirstbusters-bad-bad-girl-lyrics.html ]
Even though I try
I can't say goodbye
We took a desert drive
And you left me out to die

REFRAIN
Now I know the reason why
You're a bad, bad girl

CHORUS
Love
How it burns
Now that she's takin'
She was just fakin'
I pull myself up
Gotta learn
The mistakes that I'm makin'
Poison lips that I've tasted
A bad bad girl

REFRAIN

CHORUS
Track Name: Summer Wish
Verse 1
On a day
Like today
Wanna go oh oh
Get away
I'm on pause, just wanna play
Movin' slow oh oh
Then I saw you, laughing to yourself
And I saw you, you and no one else
When I saw you, trying not to look my way

Prechorus
Been dreamin of a girl like this
Just the first few pages of a
Summer wish

Chorus
You could be
The one I'm waiting for, for so long now
The girl I'm aching for, for so long now
The love I'm praying for, for so long now
But time moves fast with the sunrise girl

Verse 2
Took her hand
And we laughed
And we ran
Wanna go oh oh
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/thirstbusters-summer-wish-lyrics.html ]
'Cause we can
She's my answer to the world
And I know oh oh

When I saw you, you were looking too
And I saw you, yeah that's when I knew
When I saw you, and the sun came up again

Prechorus
Been dreamin of a girl like this
Just the next few pages of a
Summer wish

Chorus

Chorus
You could be
The one I'm waiting for, for so long now
The girl I'm aching for, for so long now
The love I'm praying, yeah the love I'm praying for, for, it's you

Prechorus
Been dreamin of a girl like this
And now the final pages of a
Summer kiss
Ooh

Chorus
The one I'm waiting for
The girl I'm aching for
The love I'm praying for

Chorus
(Now I found)
(The one I need)
Track Name: Can't Fight The Feeling
Can’t Fight The Feeling
Can’t fight the feeling now
It knocks you to the ground
And breaks the reason down

[Chorus]
Is there anyone who can help me out?
Is there anyone?

You’re scared and screaming loud
But no one hears a sound
The voice you never found

[Chorus]

You’re lost within the crowd
Your heart begins to pound
The shadows that surround

[Chorus]
Is there anyone who can help me out?
Is there anyone, knows what I’m talking bout?
Aah

Can’t fight the feeling now
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/t/thirstbusters-lyrics/can_t-fight-the-feeling-lyrics.html ]
You’re scared and screaming loud
You’re lost within the crowd

[Chorus]
Is there anyone who can help me out?
Is there anyone, knows what I’m talking bout?
Aah

Just breath in
Go ahead and keep it
Never said the secret
In your head the meaning
Better let it

Breath in
Go ahead and keep it
Never said the secret
In your head the meaning
In the end a

A secret in your head
It’s just a secret in your head
A secret in your head
It’s just a secret from yourself
Track Name: Is This Really Love?
Is This Really Love?
Verse 1
I look into my mirror
And see you in my bed
And I think to myself
What was I smoking last night?

Maybe last week
Or maybe yesterday
I really cannot say
When I found out, that this girl is taking advantage of me

Chorus
Is this really love?
What do I know?
Caught up in her game
And she's playin' me like a fool

Verse 2
Oh baby
I dip into my wallet
To find my money's gone (shoulda known)
And I think to myself
I'm hopeless 'cause she's done this all before
Ooh, hit me Ryan

Chorus

Bridge
A cheater, a liar
She got me choked so tight
The heat and the fire
She tells me it's alright baby
Believing a stranger
She always lands on top
I'm leaving the danger
I said I'm out but I can't stop
Oh baby, I'm addicted to you
Oh I can't get out, y'know it kills me now

Chorus
Track Name: Return to Me
Return To Me
Verse
It’s not my fault
I need you closer
I want it all
California, California

Is not the same
Our favorite places
They’re just not there when you’re away

Chorus
Wanna sing ‘til the sun goes down
Wanna talk but you’re not in town
Head back home waiting around for you
To return to me

Verse 2
I miss the way
We used to be together
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/t/thirstbusters-lyrics/return-to-me-lyrics.html ]
Most everyday
Now I’m waiting, I’m just waiting

You’re scared of time
You’re scared of distance
You say your fine but that’s not true

Chorus

Bridge
Return to me
Just gotta to be strong (return to me)
I wonder how long (return to me)
An ocean away
Don’t mind the delay
I’m sorry to say that she’s gone
She’s gone away

Chorus 2x
Track Name: Finders Keepers
Finders Keepers Lyrics
by Thirstbusters


Oh it's not so hard to tell
The lie you try n sell
To take what you can take
And leave some empty shell

[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricenter.com/e95353-thirstbusters~finders_keepers_lyrics.html ]
Thinkin only for yourself
But the gold it's gonna melt
You broke what you could break Now the fires burn and swell
But you said

I didn't break any rules today
It's finders Keepers
You handed it over babe it's
Finders Keepers
Not givin it back, I'm gone
‘Cause Finders Keepers
I'm putting my clothes back on it's
Finders Keepers

Well you found a loaded gun
And you thought it might be fun
To play Bonnie and Clyde
But you're not on the run

‘Cause your conscience doesn't care
You pretend it isn't there
But somewhere deep inside
The fire takes its share
But you said

Now I find the fire that will
Make me keep on singing until
Everybody knows you're living a lie
Oh

Finders Keepers (4x)
Track Name: Not Coming Home
Verse
Not coming home
I'm fine on my own for the meantime
For some me time

Lost in the moment
Don't know where I'm going
But I know I've got to go

I'm at a fork in the road
I'll never know
What was right from what was left behind

So much persists there's
So much I'll miss but I need it
I just need this now

Pre Chorus
Don't you worry babe
No other girl makes me feel this way
I hate to leave but I know I just can't stay

Chorus
So even if times get rough
We could still rely on trust
But I could never give enough to fate
‘Cause love don't have no expiration date

Verse 2
Not gonna lie
There's moments when I feel helpless
I need hope and

Some time to find
Everything you see inside
Maybe I just haven't found it yet

Pre Chorus

Chorus

Bridge
The taste of your goodbye
Made me realize oh
What I had to do
I'm home when I'm with you

Pre Chorus

Chorus 2x
Track Name: All About The Girls
All About The Girls

Verse 1
I wanna go out
But can’t decide
I’m tired and I’m lazy and it’s cold outside

I’m by myself now
I guess I’m fine
So maybe I’ll just stay all home alone tonight

Pre-chorus
But you can come around, come and get me
And I won’t resist
Tell me what’s going on
You know that I’ll be up for it

You can come around, come and get me
And we’re walking in
Music’s bumpin
And the night begins with my

Chorus
Boys boys, make a lotta noise
Throw ya hands up, might have some luck with them

Girls girls, you rock my world
Raise a red cup if you know wassup with them

Boys boys, where my boys at?
My dude’s in the corner and he’s trying to mack on some

Girls girls, we all know that
The party’s all about the girls
[- From :http://www.elyrics.net/read/t/thirstbusters-lyrics/all-about-the-girls-lyrics.html -]

Verse 2
And now we’re dancing
She got me bad
She told me she was something that I never had

Don’t know her name but
I’m in the zone
These flashing lights and crazy nights, I won’t go home

Pre-chorus 2
Baby come around, come and get me
And I won’t resist
Tell me what’s on your mind
You know that I’ll be up for it

Baby come around, come and get me
Switch to overdrive
Music’s bumpin’
And the night is alive so

Chorus

Bridge

Chorus

Outro
Lemme hear ya say hey, hey, hey, hey
Everybody’s vibin
Nobody’s drivin

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Crash on the couch

Boys, girls, we all know that
The party’s all about the girls
Track Name: Shallow Night
Shallow Night
Verse
On a Friday night
Low cut top and all the boys are staring
Babe ya dressed to invite
Make me stop to check out what she's wearing
And I think I might
Move a little closer, couldn't bear it
To not ask this girl to dance

And now she's feeling me
In this club I've never been before
I said she's stealing me,
Feels like love, I never wanted more
Short skirt, high heeling me
Wanna get her number, then take the full tour
In case she wants another dance

Chorus
But we haven't said a word
Don't know her name
Never looked into her eyes
And it's absurd
How we play this game and how she tries
To be so sexy, who's it for?
No it won't impress me anymore
Just another shallow night

Verse 2
And so she leads me on
I can't resist, it's all as if she planned it
And now she's gone
What could this leave me but empty-handed
It's a sour song
And it persists, together we're all stranded
‘Til we look for something more

Chorus

Bridge/Solos

Chorus
Track Name: Take The Time You Need
Verse 1
What's it like to get away?
Hang your arms and let ‘em sway
Just be
Take the time you need

What's it like to have a day? (You don't have to rush back into things)
Give your dreams some space to play (Shades are down, the clocks are off)
Just breathe
Take the time you need

Pre-chorus
It's hard to find a moment (time you need, the time you need)
When there's crazy all the time (time you need, the time you need, it's
time)
All the expectations (time you need, the time you need)
Pressure in your life (time you need, the time you need)

Chorus
Half the time I fall sleep
On a pile of pages I won't read
I won't need
Wonder why I'm sitting here
Try and try my best to reappear
To persevere
The feeling's near
It's always been

Prechorus

Chorus
Track Name: Snow Falls
Enemy's become my friends when I send white light
All around the world I'll yell it with the words I write

Scars sneak on my body when I least know
And the only way to make them disappear is to make it snow

You make it snow
Make it snow


Snow falls everyday of the year
When the hatchet's buried
Every step feels like the first again

Demons lace my soul and I can't forget
Thank the path that took me in and a lost regret

No one is brand new, everybody has a bruise
So the snow drips down to the toes of my shoes


Snow falls everyday of the year
When the hatchet's buried
Every step feels like the first again
Snow falls everyday of the year

Now you're out so let the snow fall down
I'll hold you closer
Now you're out so let the snow fall down
Because it's over
Just forgive
Track Name: Good Things
On a plane at 12 o'clock
By 5 p.m. we were half a world apart
New city, brand new start
My body's here, but is my heart?

Unpack my bags at 10 o'clock
By 2 a.m. my eyes still can't shut
A new way, new direction
For better or worse, I'm gonna make it work

Oh the good things come
Oh this game has just begun
Change is gonna happen
Cause and reaction
Oh the good things come

On a train at 8 o'clock
By 9 a.m. I'm right at my stop
Keep my chin up, clench my coffee cup
I'm ready for whatever comes

Walk up the stairs right on cue
Can't help but smile when I think of you
But one-way street, no need repeat
My future is just wait and see

Oh the good things come
Oh this game has just begun
Change is gonna happen
Cause and reaction
Oh the good things come

Every time
In every place
Finding home in change
Life is gonna happen
It's just the master plan
Oh the good things come

Oh the good things come
Oh this game has just begun
Change is gonna happen
Cause and reaction
Oh the good things come
