Kyd the Band Debuts ‘Corridors’ and ‘I’ll Stay’

By  | 

Kyd the Band is back with two new spellbinding tracks.

The alt-pop brainchild of Devin Guisande released the two tracks this last month.  The Filipino/Spanish artist – originally hailing from Sacramento and now cementing his boots in Nashville – is back with new single “Corridors”, following his 2020 EP entitled Season 2: Character Development.
“Corridors” was co-written with Adam Friedman (Allen Stone, Mike Posner) and Kevin Griffin (The Night Game, Moon Taxi) and produced entirely over Zoom in true 2020 fashion. Throughout the track Devin tries to break free of his mental prison to finally overcome past relationships. Instead of remaining trapped in old memories and endless brain loops, the song encourages to keep your head up and positively push forward against the odds. The new single is just another example of Kyd the Band’s unabashed honesty in his lyrics and broad range across his collection. With each season, Devin reveals more of himself as he finds the confidence to delve deep into his tumultuous past from a socially isolated childhood, to leaving his home, family, and the Pentecostal Church; overcoming a drug overdose to then finally finding solace in music and healthy relationships. 
“I’m excited because sonically it’s the product of where I’ve been up until now merged with my first two EPs,” he said. “Lyrically, it’s about realizing there are spaces in my mind I’ve created for people who have hurt me, specifically from my upbringing and formative years. It’s the starting point for the message of identity and self-acceptance, the intro to Season 3: The Realization.” On the video, he elaborates, “My intention with this video was to convey an experience that I had as a teenager, in the church that I was raised in, that has stuck with me ever since. It’s stuck with me to the point where I’ve created a permanent place for it and that person in my mind, and I relive it over and over again.”

Corridors Lyrics

[Verse 1]

It’s like a prison in my head

Some days I can’t get out of bed

If I could I’d let you go

But it’s outta my control

It’s like a prison in my head

[Refrain]

I’m here but you’re not

And I stayed while you moved on

And no matter where I go

I’m stuck between these 4 walls and

[Chorus]

I can’t stop, can’t stop reliving

Walking through your corridors in my mind

I’m caught up, caught in the feeling

Walking through your corridors in my mind

Your corridors in my mind

Your corridors in my mind

[Verse 2]

The night you put me on a ledge

Just down the hallway to the left

Each night is like the night before

But you know I can’t shut the door

The night you put me on a ledge

[Chorus]

I can’t stop, can’t stop reliving

Walking through your corridors in my mind

I’m caught up, caught in the feeling

Walking through your corridors in my mind

Your corridors in my mind

Your corridors in my mind

[Refrain]

I’m here but you’rе not

And I stayed while you moved on

And no mattеr where I go

I’m stuck between these 4 walls and

[Chorus]

I can’t stop, can’t stop reliving

Walking through your corridors in my mind

I’m caught up, caught in the feeling

Walking through your corridors in my mind

Your corridors in my mind

Your corridors in my mind

It’s like a prison in my head

Some days I can’t get out of bed

If I could I’d let you go

Your corridors in my mind

 

I’ll Stay Lyrics

[Chorus]

I don’t know what I should do

I don’t know the words to say

But if you say you want me to

I’ll stay (I’ll stay)

I can’t fix what you’re going through

I can’t make it go away

But if you say you want me to

I’ll stay (I’ll stay)

 

[Verse 1]

Saw you tried to end the call

Yeah, I could hear him giving you the worst news

I don’t know why people leave or where they go when they do

They just do

Standing here in front of you as your world is going down

Break down

Wish that I could take away or trade you places in this pain

These doubts, but

 

[Chorus]

I don’t know what I should do

I don’t know the words to say

But if you say you want me to

I’ll stay (I’ll stay)

I can’t fix what you’re going through

I can’t make it go away

But if you say you want me to

I’ll stay (I’ll stay)
