Artiestinformatie

Land   Verenigde Staten

Cock Robin is een Amerikaanse pop/rock-formatie die is opgericht in 1984 en onder leiding stond van Peter Kingsbery (zang, keyboard en bas). Verder stonden in de oorspronkelijke bezetting Anna LaCazio (zang), Clive Wright (gitaar) en drummer Lou Molino III. In Nederland werden ze vooral bekend door veel publiciteit van MTV en doordat de nummers The promise you made, Thought you where on my side en When your heart is weak kregen veel Airplay.
De groep zou uiteindelijk in Europa veel meer succes hebben dan in de Verenigde Staten.

In 1990 ging de groep uit elkaar. Anna LaCazio wilde op dat moment de muziekwereld uit en Peter Kingsbery vertrok naar Frankrijk, waar hij actief (en succesvol) bleef als solo-artiest.
Ondanks dat de groep nieuw leven werd ingeblazen door de oorspronkelijke leden van de groep, bleef het succes daarna uit.


Songtekst

Not without reason have I been wrong
Just a few tough demands
On a personal friend I could lean, lean on
Desperate and selfish, I know that I was
We drank all our fill
But I'd swear there was poison in my cup
Of your good intentions what has become

I thought you were on my side, must you add the weight
You said it would be even when splitting up the stakes
I thought you were on my side, were we not the rage
Down the centerline, what's yours is yours and mine
Just like always
Down the centerline, what's yours is yours and mine
Just like always

Hurting for freedom, hell-bent for lust
It's an unlikely thing that I'd be bumping in
To someone I could trust
I'm far from resigning though I'm faint from exhaust
Just because I'm on edge
Do I have to let somebody come push me off
Is it the belonging, or something you've lost

I thought you were on my side, must you add the weight
You said it would be even when splitting up the stakes
I thought you were on my side, were we not the rage
Down the centerline, what's yours is yours and mine
Just like always
Down the centerline, what's yours is yours and mine
Just like always

I thought you were on my side

I thought you were on my side, were we not the rage
Down the centerline, what's yours is yours and mine
Just like always
Down the centerline, what's yours is yours and mine
Just like always
Down the centerline, what's yours is yours and mine
