about

Breakfast Beer Chicago, Illinois

With a focus on interplay and vocal harmony, Breakfast Beer draws inspiration from classic acts like CSNY, Fleetwood Mac, and Phish.

Things started brewing in late 2016 with impromptu living room jams and soon spread into the Chicago music scene. Now, in 2018, the Beers are looking to continue to share their honest brand of everymas rock with Chicago, the Midwest, and beyond.

Track Name: Haunting Me
HAUNTING ME

I used to love you, I used to hug you every night
But when you vanished I couldn’t manage feeling right.

I can see you clearly in my mind’s eye.
The funny thing’s you’re happy and it kills me inside.

Now when I see your face its haunting me, and
Every day if I read your name it’s all I see.
You’re planted on my brain and deeper than a carpet stain.
I’ll wash you out like I did that day ‘cause you’re haunting me.

Hope you enjoy it, I’m sure the boys will enjoy you.
From my position your quick decision broke the rules.

I can see you clearly in my mind’s eye, you’re
Dancing in the moonlight with another guy.

Now when I see your face its haunting me, and
Every day if I read your name it’s all I see.
You’re planted on my brain and deeper than a carpet stain.
I’ll wash you out like I did that day ‘cause you’re haunting me.

I can see you clearly in my mind’s eye, you’re
Dancing in the moonlight with another guy.

Now when I see your face its haunting me, and
Every day if I read your name it’s all I see.
You’re planted on my brain and deeper than a carpet stain.
I’ll wash you out like I did that day ‘cause you’re haunting me.
Track Name: I Didn't See
I DIDN’T SEE

I heard your song the other day ‘bout April love and kisses made.
Forgive me if I throw up in my mouth.
In February you kissed me, you cried and held me longingly.
In March you found some other lips down south.

You had me take it off my wall, that scorching truth that made you call.
I can’t believe I followed your advice.
Well listen close and hear me through, there’s one thing I will say to you
And rarely do I say the same thing twice.
It only took you a month,
After seven years you cowardly abandoned me.
Your superficial charm
Looked like love to me, I didn’t see, I didn’t see.
I didn’t see.

How can I help but feel betrayed? It shocked me when you left that way.
You played me, made me angry, and you were with him.
And yet my words alone should bind my feelings to the sands of time
While you continue trying to play the victim.

It only took you a month,
After seven years you cowardly abandoned me.
Your superficial charm
Looked like love to me, I didn’t see, I didn’t see.
I didn’t see.

A phone call’s all that I got
After everything we said and did got lost at sea.
So keep on writing songs
‘cause you know you’re going to hear from me, you’ll hear from me!

It breaks my heart just to think that
I never would have done the things you did to me.
Your superficial charm
Looked like love to me, I didn’t see.
I didn’t see.
Track Name: I Thought, You Dreamed
I THOUGHT, YOU DREAMED

It started in France where life was a dream and we never thought we’d wake.
I gave you my love and so did the world, but who knew the path to take?

Doc was in the building and looking so alive. I
Followed him down south but couldn’t shake my pride.
I came back to meet you, I thought we’d won the race with
All my bridges ashen and my dreams replaced.

Now when I get down I’ll think about how we almost had everything, but
You were all I wanted. I thought you’d marry me.

We went through some hard times, money was tight, but you always made me smile.
I worked for our future, making my plans with God laughing all the while.

I remember clearly, you called me on the phone. You
Told me you were leaving for a warmer home.
Then when you arrived there the dream of France revived. I
Hope you live your fantasy for all your life.

Now when I get down I’ll think about how we almost had everything, but
You were all I wanted.
You were all I wanted, well baby
You were all I wanted. I thought you’d marry me.
Track Name: No One Stays Forever (EP Version)
NO ONE STAYS FOREVER
Today’s the day that I give up on you.
I thought that we could work it out.
Blow out the candle, put away the past,
Gone at last
With any chance of us together.
No one stays forever.

A year ago you stood here next to me.
We talked of marriage, love, and joy.
The best year of your life was worst for me,
Can’t you see?
All that I’d worshipped torn and severed, ‘cause
No one stays forever.

Today’s the day that I give up on you.
I thought that we could work it out.
Blow out the candle, put away the past,
Gone at last
With any chance of us together.
Our love is torn and severed.
No one stays forever.
No one stays forever.
No one stays forever.

You left me to die in a world you made, a
World where we can’t even sing together.
That’s what you said to me, baby.
You left me to die, yeah I sure felt played.
You blocked me out for some momentary pleasure.
That’s how it read to me, baby.
Track Name: What Goes Up (EP Version)
WHAT GOES UP

What goes up has gotta go down. We were
Flying high then we smacked the cold, hard ground.
Go tell your friends, they’re eager to know how
Terrible I was for you, they told you so.

Happy birthday, you’re finally free. I’m
Blowing out my candles, but don’t think of me. Just
Plant your seeds now and see how they grow. You
Tore my heart in half so reap what liars sow. Yeah, you
Tore my heart in half so reap what liars sow.

I was saving money to buy you a ring. I
Nearly asked your father, what a foolish thing.
You betrayed me, that’s all I can say. You
Stabbed me in the back while you were worlds away.
Life is just a game so let the the children play. It’s
Not like I was what you wanted anyway.

What goes up has gotta go down. We were
Flying so high, then we smacked the cold, hard ground. I
Can’t believe that you did this to me. Now I’ve
Lost the love I had for you entirely.

I was saving money to buy you a ring. I
Nearly asked your father, what a foolish thing.
You betrayed me, that’s all I can say. You
Stabbed me in the back while you were worlds away.
Life is just a game so go ahead and play. It’s
Not like you were what I wanted anyway.
