Buzzkill

The summer is here
And the summer is gone
Buzzkill
Killing my fucking buzz
Buzzkill

I had good shit all lined up
Then you fucking showed up
Buzzkill
Killing my fucking buzz
Buzzkill

My heart sinks into the deep
When you inflict yourself on me
Buzzkill

The summer is here (The summer is here)
And then the summer is gone
Buzzkill (Knock, knock, the summer is gone)
Killing my fucking buzz
Buzzkill

I had a sweet hook up (Had a sweet hook up)
And you fucked it all up
Buzzkill (Once more, you fucked it all up)
Killing my fucking buzz
Buzzkill

My heart sinks (My heart sinks)
Into the deep (Into the deep)
When you inflict (You inflict)
Yourself on me

A dark cloud (A dark cloud)
Of jealousy (Of jealousy)
Pissing rain (Pissing rain)
And misery
Buzzkill

The summer is here (Summer is here) And the summer is gone
Buzzkill (Knock, knock, the summer is gone)
Killing my fucking buzz
Buzzkill (Knock, knock, the summer is gone)
Killing my fucking buzz
Buzzkill (Knock, knock, the summer is gone)
Buzzkill (knock, knock, the summer is gone)
Buzzkill
Buzzkill

I had a sweet hook up (Had a sweet hook up)
Then you screwed it all up

Killing my goddamn buzz

My heart sinks (My heart sinks)
Into the deep (Into the deep)
When you inflict (You inflict)
Yourself on me

Of jealousy (Of jealousy)
Pouring rain (Pouring rain)

Song Notes

“Buzzkill” features The Undertones’ Damien O’Neill and Mickey Bradley on backing vocals.

Speaking about “Buzzkill” and its origins upon its release in Feb 2018, Tim explained:

“The day I wrote ‘Buzzkill’, it took me a while to stop laughing cos it’s so fun, dumb and full of unnecessary swearing. We used to know a band called Buzzkill in Belfast in the 90s and I think their name has been in my mind for all that time wanting to get into a song.”

“Having seen The Undertones playing a couple of times recently I was guiltily thinking how much the backing vocals I’d written for “Buzzkill” were mimicking their style. So I thought it would only be right to ask Damien (O’Neill) and Mickey (Bradley) to sing on it and we were honoured when that they said yes, despite all the filthy cussing. It’s a fun song and will hopefully ignite a few mosh-pits for us this year.”
