about

We Were Pirates Washington, D.C.

We Were Pirates is the musical brainchild of Mike Boggs, a multi-instrumentalist who writes and records songs in his home studio in the DC area.

To date, Boggs has released three We Were Pirates albums & a film score for the Calvin & Hobbes documentary ‘Dear Mr. Watterson’ in 2013.

2012's Change is slightly more mature and aggressive than Boggs’ previous works, but with the same WWP catchiness.

Track Name: Keep Talking
Keep talking I’m not listening anyway. It’s the same old thing I’ve heard before. If you want to leave so bad just go on. It’s been nice, but I can’t take much more. Cause I’m alright, there’s nothing wrong with me. I hope you’re pleased with what you’ve done here. You’ve taken everything I thought I had. I could want what’s best for you but I would rather hold you to some words you said. Cause I’m alright, there’s nothing wrong with me.
Track Name: Settle Down
I want you, you want me. What’s so wrong with a little bit of love?
And you’ve got me where you want me. What the hell are you waiting for?
If you want me, well you know where to find me.

I’ve got needs, you’ve got needs. We all need just a little bit of love.
And you’ve got me where you want me. What the hell are you waiting for?
If you want me, well you know where to find me.

I’ve been hanging around again for a while, but it’s just not getting any easier to walk away. So why don’t we just settle down? Cause you think I’m going to walk away.

I want you, you want me. What’s so wrong with a little bit of love?
And you’ve got me where you want me. What the hell are you waiting for?
If you want me, well you know where to find me.
Track Name: The Three of Us
I love you. And you love him. And I sort of love him cause I love everything you love. Then he stopped loving you. And glory hallelujah, somehow you start loving me. I don’t know why I love you, I just do, I really do. It doesn’t do me any good in fact it does me bad. Cause you’re oh so gone and I’m oh so sad. I love you and you love me and you sort of told me that you love me more than him then you stopped loving me, and lord won’t you take me, you picked up loving him. Now it’s just the three of us, the names may have changed but the sorry fact remains the same that I love you and he loves you, and I’m okay with second best just love him more and love me less.
Track Name: Little Monsters
You’ve had a lot of fun times. Yeah and life’s been cool. You think it may be time to settle down and stop thinking of you. You try to take your time. You try to play it cool. But if you don’t watch your back, baby, they’ll be coming for you. Those little monsters won’t wait for you. They’ve got a lot of nerve to show up. Just when things are cool. They take and they take and they take take take. They’ll take the shirt off your back and leave you with a heart attack. It’s starting to sink in: exactly what you’ve done. And now you know that you’ve just. traded your freedom for a little fun. And as you breathe deep, and you feign a smile, you’d better get one last look cause man it’s going to be a while. Those little monsters won’t wait for you. They’ve got a lot of nerve to show up just when things are cool. They take and they take and they take take take. They’ll take the shirt off your back and leave you with a heart attack. I won’t put up a fight. What done is done, it’s alright I’ve seen a good one or two, Who do exactly as they’re told to do. Those little monsters won’t wait for you They’ve got a lot of nerve to show up Just when things are cool They take and they take and they take take take They’ll take the shirt off your back and leave you with a heart attack
Track Name: Restless
You’re getting restless. And can you blame yourself? It’s hard to breathe here. You thought it’d get better. And can you blame yourself? Could it get much worse? I want to take you far away. I don’t want to wait, let’s leave today. So pack a few things and leave the rest behind. It’s getting late we’re losing time. You think I’m crazy. And maybe you’re not wrong. But I just can’t stay here. We’re getting older and time is running out. If we don’t go now then when? I want to take you far away. I don’t want to wait. Let’s leave today. So pack a few things and leave the rest behind. It’s getting late we’re losing time.
Track Name: Long Year
Girl get your groove on. Cause like it or not, you’re on your fifth drink now and everybody’s looking hot. Your friends have all gone home now. No one to tell you what to do. You’ve got your first taste of freedom. So why still feeling blue? You know you shouldn’t, but you just don’t care. It’s been a long year for you and yeah you are aware that mistakes have consequences and you ought to play it smart, but you’ve got so much to lose and you’ve still got a broken heart. Girl what you gonna do? You better make up your mind. The bartender says last call and you’re running out of time. You don’t want to do nothing wrong, but you wish you would have known just how hard it was going to be to face that empty bed alone. You know you shouldn’t, but you just don’t care. It’s been a long year for you and yes you are aware that mistakes have consequences and you ought to play it smart, but you’ve got so much to lose and you’ve still got a broken hear….It will get easier.
Track Name: Rich Girl
She’s my little rich girl and she’s driving me wild. We’ve been spending that cash like it’s going out of style. And now I know I’ve got to fool her if I’m able and never let her find out I’m bringing nothing to the table. I don’t know how long its gonna last. I don’t know how she feels, but I know I’ve got to keep this girl. I’ve got to seal the deal. And if I play my cards right, we could be married by the end of the night. She’s my little rich girl, and she’s driving me wild. We’ve been spending that cash like it’s going out of style. And now I know I’ve got to fool her if I’m able and never let her find out I’m bringing nothing to the table.
Track Name: Cutting Ties
Family, friends, and loved ones never let me have my fun. So I kicked them to the curb. Now I feel so free it’s absurd. I recall their cruelty. Yeah they’d never let me be. Like when my wife said you’ll have to choose between the whiskey and me. Cause they were always nagging, telling me that I could do exactly as I please and until I decided do what’s right they couldn’t be there. So I packed my things and left and I haven’t missed them yet. Cause I’m finally free. There are days when I regret decisions I have made. But I’ve made my choice and I’ll stick with it until I go to my grave. Cause they were always nagging, telling me that I could do exactly as I please. And until I decided do what’s right, they wouldn’t be there. So I packed my things and left And I haven’t missed them yet. Because I’m finally free.
Track Name: Stars
We’re the stars. And we wander on and on. We make our plans, but they never amount to much. And we do exactly what we feel like. I know I could barely get by, but I wouldn’t mind with you by my side. We’re alright. So, don’t bother checking in. We don’t need you. Yeah, cause we know everything. And we do exactly what we feel like. I know I could barely get by, but I wouldn’t mind with you by my side. We’re the stars. And we wander on and on. We make our plans, but they never amount to much.
Track Name: Don't Forget
When you want to go. You’ve got to get away. You ought to go where its nice and warm every day. No one nags you there. No one asks you why you’ve disappointed them again with all your lies. Don’t forget. Don’t forget me when I’m gone. When I close my eyes I call feel the breeze. I don’t know why I’m here. This life is just such a tease. Don’t forget. Don’t forget me when I’m gone.
