Video of the Moment #1982: Boy Jumps Ship

Ahead of a new release in the first month of 2016, Newcastle’s Boy Jumps Ship have a new music video out this week. ‘Burn’, which will be released as a single in its own right on the 29th of January, is their latest new material to be unveiled to the public. The song and its promo seems perfect to see this year out. The visuals directed by the band’s friend Ollie Rillands are full of fire and passion, as are the lyrics, reminding us all that “time is gone so don’t look back”: we only have our one life to live, so live it to the fullest and make it count. We may have been through some dark days this year, but ‘Burn’ is here to be incredibly inspiring: “old your head up high, you’re still young so you can try. We’re just getting by, closer to the finish line.”

Frontman of Boy Jumps Ship Si Todd has been kind enough to provide me with the full lyrics to share with you, and I encourage you to read them along with watching their awesome new video. I’m sure the Geordie lads will be back on the road in 2016 soon enough, as their debut album, now in the can, is scheduled for release in the new year. Wey aye, man! (Be thankful I’m coming to you through a computer screen and not hearing my terrible excuse for a Geordie accent, ha.)

The TV’s playing loud but you’re not making sense
The money’s drying out the kids have no respect
We’ll rip your heart out when we find out who you are
But when it’s dark out you don’t stand out from the crowd

(Time is gone so don’t look back, play your part it’s all you have…)

Burn! When I light ’em up.
If you’re not feeling we’re not bleeding all alone.
So when I Burn! When I light ’em up.
If you’re stealing we’re not healing all alone.

Your time is running out the streets are in a mess, forget your promises they’re wrapped around our necks.
So hold your head up high, you’re still young so you can try. We’re just getting by, closer to the finish line.

Burn! Light ’em up.
If you’re not feeling we’re not bleeding all alone.
Burn! When I light ’em up (hold your, hold your, hold your head up high)
If you’re stealing we’re not healing all alone (we’re just, we’re just, we’re just getting by)

Hold your, hold your, hold your head up high.

When I Burn
When I Burn
When I…
