about

“The Velvet Rope is a stylish warm-blooded rendering of frustrated love where every immersive melodic layer feels good and like it’s in the right place.”

“‘The Velvet Rope‘ is the second single to come from Daniel Peterson’s upcoming debut album, ‘Welcome To My House, Bumblebee‘. The Australian-born musician follows on from his Strawberry Blonde EP with another pop-fused alternative track that, with its more refined sound, seems ready made for chart success and club remixes.

Accompanied by an exquisitely stylish and hypnotic production, the song is a passionate and powerful expression of frustrated romance. Whether you relate to its poetic lyrics or not, Peterson’s vocals alone will leave you lost in a feeling of bittersweet euphoria in the way that any love song should.” – The Indiependent

lyrics

LYRICS:

Feel I've been whistling in the dark
But I'm not ready to walk on.
One thing without a question mark,
That I come back to when you're gone:

Behind the velvet rope
That you pull in front of me,
From the first to the finest detail,
You won't find a better place to be.

The coldest front hiding the glow
Doesn't fool me, but I'm still lost.
The only thing I fully know
That's on my mind the most:

Behind the velvet rope
That you pull in front of me,
From the first to the finest detail,
You won't find a better place to be.

You know I'll wait for you,
That slow is good for me too.
But how long is long enough,
To work it out?

Behind the velvet rope
That you pull in front of me,
From the first to the finest detail,
You won't find a better place to be.
