'You Don't Need To Listen'

‘You Don’t Need to Listen’ celebrates having a choice. The reality is the majority of us have choices around the information we consume.

This release is Fringe Mellows first collaboration with River Suite Orchestra. It was always a dream of Henry’s (FM Producer) to have one of his productions transcribed into a live strings arrangement. Inspired by early dance classics “Soul II Soul” and the likes of “Yo Yo Honey” and combining this with the likes of Moby & The Streets the River Suite Orchestra without a doubt enhances the production of the Fringe Mellow sound and compliments the emotion of the lyrics. The pressures of lock down in 2020 really inspired lance (singer/songwriter) to contemplate the information he was taking in, resulting in the conversation that this song presents.

You Don't Need To Listen

Verse 01
Maybe you’ve heard it,
are you feeling scared and oh so nervous?
It’s playing on a loop, you wanna cut the circuit.
It’s doing you no service.
You know your worth it!
To feel the sun, here’s to feeling young!
Just wanna be someone that’s being nurtured
and when your digging deep
you know that you can leave it there
so it won’t reach the surface
never let it bleach the colour that you see
believe in its purpose.
Living in a sea
of other peoples dreams and curses
just know when you close your eyes
you’re never worthless.

You don’t need to listen to the pieces of the story
you don’t want to, if it’s not you. x2

Verse 02

You open up my door,
say you’ll open up my mind.
Why you be so kind.
To take away my piece of mind
tell me what to do as if I haven’t got a clue.
I see it in your eyes and lips as they move.
Your only human.
Following the tracks never stopping to relax
it’s all confusing.
A part of the pact thats apart of the act
to feel apart of the choosing.
Leave me alone.
Far up the back,
I’m knowing that I’m never losing.
I don’t think about it.
When you come with your rain
remember that we’re not the same.
I don’t get so clouded.


You don’t need to listen to the pieces of the story
you don’t want to, if it’s not you. X2

People out there shouting
with their hope and with their doubting
you can leave it there.
Don’t need to be aware.
