Skyler

feature-cover-skyler.jpg

“What else is there?” explained Skyler when asked if all his songs are about love, and girls.

A few minutes after hearing him perform “Hold my Hand,” “Stephanie” and “Any Stupid Thing ” it’s a little tough to disagree with him. For Sklyer, who has just the one name because he really has four names, and keeping the one just seemed simpler, being on stage and belting out love songs is what it’s all about.

The 19-year-old, who started playing sometime in elementary school after buying his first guitar with proceeds from a lemonade stand (seriously) and later put together a music studio in his bedroom with what he made from bake sales (seriously). After high school and a year at Berklee College of Music, he found a manager and a band and took the show on the road. He has six EPs — the latest recorded with his “Band of Thieves.” Listen to some of the tracks below.

“Take You Away”


“Empty Rooms”


“Hold On (Pray)”


“Sentimental”


“It Kills Me”

"Hold On (Pray)" Lyrics

I can see you're feeling down again
As your world turns left and you whirl to the right
Your feet are unsteady so hold on tight
There'll be a better day
There's gonna be a better day

Hold on Darling,
Hold on, Hold on

You pray in the morning
You pray in the evening
You're praying for your hero to come
You're praying for the stars
To line up just so
You can see the world lit up by the sun
On and on you're waiting
You should be getting with the getting on
So hold on
Hold on, baby, hold on

I can see your mind untangling
You've been one step forward and two steps back
Another day closer to lay a new track
There'll be a better way
There's gotta be a better way

You pray in the morning
You pray in the evening
You're praying for your hero to come
You're praying for the stars
To line up just so
You can see the world lit up by the sun
On and on you’re waiting
You should be getting with the getting on
So hold on
Hold on, baby, hold on

You pray in the morning
You pray in the evening
You're praying for your hero to come
You're praying for the stars
To line up just so
You can see the world lit up by the sun
On and on you're waiting
You should be getting with the getting on
So hold on
Hold on, baby, hold on

I can see that tender smile again.

"Empty Rooms" Lyrics

What about me, I must have missed the boat
Where was I when everybody took the vote
Out in the cold, or under the moon
Shadows dance, here in my empty room

Seen from above I could be resting
Watched from within you'd see what I mean
Run and I hide, I rave and I swoon
Shadows dance here in my empty room

All alone in a world full of people
Laughing it off through the tears in my eyes
Life's the same while ever it's changing
Full of these empty rooms

Here I am hopelessly waiting
There I go, Hoping again
Watch and I wait, it's all I can do
Shadows dance here in my empty room

All alone in a world full of people
Laughing it off through the tears in my eyes
Life's the same while ever it’s changing
Full of these empty rooms

What about me, I must have missed the boat
Where was I when everybody took the vote
Out in the cold, or under the moon
Shadows dance
Shadows dance
Shadows dance, here in my empty room

"Take You Away" Lyrics

You have no idea of who I am
Or who I plan to be
As you're passing by me on the plane
It's pretty plain to see
That the world that you've been living in
Ain't all you thought it'd be
And you're so caught up in feeling down
You'd never notice me

I could be the one
I could be the one

To take you away
From the lines that lead to nowhere and I will
Take you away
From the guys that wouldn’t go there and I will
Take you away
All the things they said that weren’t fair but I will
Take your hand and hold your heart
Be the man you want to take you away

I can see the house we make a home
I see us growing old
I can hear the kids playin' in the yard
I feel the winter's cold
I can taste the flavor of your lips
While falling into bed
I can smell your perfume in the snow
That's falling on your head

I could be the one
I could be the one

To take you away
From the lines that lead to nowhere and I will
Take you away
From the guys that wouldn't go there and I will
Take you away
All the things they said that weren't fair but I will
Take your hand and hold your heart
Be the man you want to take you away

Don't ask me how I know this but I do
I might not be perfect
But I'm perfect for you
Yes I'm perfect for you
To Take You Away
