about

Novak Singapore

Novak is the brainchild of Maximillian Ho. It's essentially a paean to his life-long love for 90's British rock'n'roll bands, especially Oasis, The Verve, Ride and Suede. Whilst operating as a solo artist, he often collaborates with different musicians to flesh out his musical vision into lush soundscapes and epic sonic adventures. ... more

Track Name: Time
Only time will heal our hearts
Time will heal our wounds
Time to make a start
Time to change our hearts

Standing alone where I found you
Hoping to find you there
Sitting around with a candle
You're the one to light my life

Turning the corner to find you there
Who are you? I don't know
Don't pass me by...
Take your time and I know your hurt takes time to heal
Time to heal...

Only time will heal our hearts
Time will heal our wounds, oh baby
Time to make a start
Time to change our hearts

Now we are alone together
Just like the way we were
If I tried harder, you'll know it
I'm the one to light your life

Turning the corner to find you there
Who are you? I don't know
Don't pass me by...
Take your time and I know your hurt takes time to heal
Time to heal...

Only time will heal our hearts
Time will heal our wounds, oh baby
Time to make a start
Time to change our hearts

I can take your heart and make it feel alright
You can change my life with what you give tonight...

Only time will heal our hearts
Time will heal our wounds, oh baby
Time to make a start
Time to change our hearts
Track Name: All In The Mind
Don't believe where I'm going
I don't care cause I...
It's all in your mind
My mind... my mind...

Got my suitcase of dreams I don't leave behind
Tonight... tonight... tonight...

Don't you know I don't care?
Don't you know I don't care?
I wanna be just a rock'n'roll star tonight
I wanna be just a rock'n'roll star in my mind

Don't believe where I'm going
I don't care cause I...
It's all in my mind
My mind... your fooken mind...

Got my suitcase of dreams I don't leave behind
Tonight... tonight... shag me tonight...

Don't you know I don't care?
Don't you know I don't care?
I wanna be just a rock'n'roll star tonight
I wanna be just a rock'n'roll star in my mind
Track Name: Promise
We made our dreams tonight
Under the trees in disguise
Made a promise to you once again
Never wanted to leave you high...

Say goodbye to me
I'll never be the one you wanna see
Save your love for me
I'll never be, I'll never be...
Cause you won't see me

We made our dreams tonight
Under the trees in disguise
Made a promise to you once again
Never wanted to leave you high...

Say goodbye to me
I'll never be the one you wanna see
Save your love for me
I'll never be, I'll never be...
Cause you don't love me

Take my time and make it mine
All you wanna be
Take my time and make it mine again...
Take my love and fade away
Cause you don't wanna be
All I need to know is what you wanna be...

Say goodbye to me
I'll never be the one you wanna see
Save your love for me
I'll never be, I'll never be...
Cause you don't love me
Track Name: Tainted Lovers
She called my name and I hear her, hear her...
I walked to her, the price of love
I walked the streets alone tonight
Glass door opens for me to see

And she stood there waiting for me
And she stood there watching TV

Oh, oh, tainted lovers, oh!
Oh, oh, tainted lovers, oh!
And she's waiting for me, oh!
Take your number
Let's go...

Red lights, sweetness surrounds me, around me
Soft touch, warm palms caress me, undress me

And she stood there waiting for me
Her sweetest smile, only for me

Oh, oh, tainted lovers, oh!
Oh, oh, tainted lovers, oh!
And I'm waiting for her, oh!
I've always wanted to be true
Guess I'm just a fool...


Oh, oh, tainted lovers, oh!
Oh, oh, tainted lovers, oh!
And she's waiting for me, oh!
Take your number
Let's go...
