Boys Noize + Francis and the Lights – Why Not? | @BOYSNOIZE |

A spontaneous studio session between BOYS NOIZE and FRANCIS AND THE LIGHTS at PEOPLE Festival Berlin resulted in their new single “WHY NOT?” HERE, a hugely uplifting, timeless, disco-drenched anthem.

PEOPLE festival, curated by Bon Iver´s Justin Vernon and The National, has always been a place of unique pairings of artistic worlds colliding and crystallizing, and “WHY NOT?” captures the exhilaration of music made in the moment.

Released on Boysnoize Records and following FRANCIS AND THE LIGHTS’ latest single “Take me to the Light” with Kanye West Bon Iver, “WHY NOT?” adds its momentous energy to what’s certain to be an ascendent year for both BOYS NOIZE and FRANCIS – two artists who turned chance into magic.

“Why Not?” lyrics:

ooh

 

shouldn’t fade out

imaginative technique

the news has caught you

 

you and my emotions

they say we got in trouble

i tried to be the real one

 

by the minute

by the hour

hey what are you afraid of?

 

you shouldn’t be so afraid, to be afraid

so won’t you say “don’t be afraid”

 

you shouldn’t be so afraid, to be afraid

so won’t you say “don’t be afraid”

 

you couldn’t get if you tried man

you couldn’t buy it if you had a million dollars

and if you were a rich man

all the younger people say “you rock ‘n rollers, you gotta stop”

 

why not?

why not?

say say say say what?

why not?

you gotta stop

say why not?

 

shouldn’t fade out

imaginative technique

 

put your records in Sade

shouldn’t be so afraid to lock

tick tock on your sentence

said you’re living your life in place

 

i know you got a lot of things

i know you

and you’re living in s—, no pot to piss

they came for, you optimists

you losers, you activists

who do you fight for?

 

you shouldn’t be so afraid, to be afraid

so won’t you say “don’t be afraid”

 

you couldn’t get if you tried man

you couldn’t buy it if you had a million dollars

and if you were a rich man

all the younger people say “you rock ‘n rollers, you gotta stop”

 

why not?

why not?

say say say say what?

why not?

you gotta stop

why not?

 

ooh you couldn’t have it if you tried a million ways

you couldn’t see it if you why’d a million changes

and if you were rich…

then you could probably say “they all are poorer”

 

you gotta stop and why not?

 

i know you can do it Russ

and why not?

 

you gotta stop

yo…yo..who’s better?
