Family Man

from Sleep Sound by Hope and Social

supported by
  • Sleep Sound Gatefold CD
    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Sleep Sound CD in a beautiful gatefold custom made wallet - designed in house and printed on recycled card. Go on, treat yourself.

    As usual it's pay what you want or pay what you think it's worth...the minimum price of £1.60 literally only covers the cost of the physical production of the CD and you get a link to the download with your receipt so you can download and listen straight away! We want people to have this album, to enjoy it and to share it around but obviously we're also trying to make ends meet. So if you're not so flush at the moment just pay the £1.60...or just download the digital version below for whatever you want to pay. Even free - we don't even ask for your email address.

    If you feel moved to maybe float us a bit more then as ever, we do very much appreciate it. It's a fairly simple equation... your money makes this music.

Riding through the streets of York,
Stepping on the cracks we used to know.
We'll wait up til all the hours,
Rolling now the way we used to roll.

I tingle and I'm tangled now,
I'm wrapped in all the silver and the gold.
I'll work it out in time I know,
If time is something I can still afford.

I'm a family man now,
It could be all I know.
I'm a family man now,
I'll be home before you know.

Tell me all the songs you love,
And dress up like you're trying to catch my eye.
We'll forget the world for now,
Let this things wash over us a while.

My memory's like a sieve,
It captures all the residue and grime.
But you're lighting up the present,
With your incandescent phosphor-coated smile.

I'm a family man now,
It could be all I know.
I'm a family man now,
Pretty soon I'm coming home.

I'd wait all day just to hold you.
I'd wait all day for your arms.

Hope and Social Leeds

In the tradition of the travelling bands, we guess we’re a bit like a Yorkshire E-Street Band...meets Arcade Fire...meets The Faces…meets Dexys Midnight Runners…meets Prefab Sprout…at a party...in an argument about who gets to have sex with David Bowie. We're not as good at describing ourselves as others are, so...
