2014 Best Adapted Song

Debs and Errol both love Star Wars and Errol is also a huge fan of '80s songs. He had always wanted to parody "Time After Time" by Cyndi Lauper. In 2011, Debs & Errol crowdfunded their very first CD, and one of the perks for donating to the campaign was that they would write a song based on donor requests. Errol's sister, Lizette, asked for "TIE After TIE". The song was written in one afternoon in October, 2011 and is one of the few songs that Debs and Errol have written together in person (most of their songs are written online in Google Docs).

"TIE After TIE" is included on their 2013 EP release, CTRL+ALT+DUETS. When doing a live performance, Debs usually comes over during the interlude to play the main Star Wars theme. Unless she's on the other side of Errol and can't make it over. Or if they are situated far away from each other. Or if Debs forgets.

Debs and Errol are super excited that "TIE After TIE" got nominated for a Pegasus. If you would like more information on this song (including chords!), you can check out its page on the D&E Wiki.

TIE After TIE

Lyrics posted by permission of the author 

Flying in my X-wing as the chrono ticks to certain doom
Enemies encircle me, confusion is nothing new
Plans were stolen from deep inside
Trench run, they come
TIE after TIE...

Asteroids surrounding me, I may be in above my head
3720 to 1, I can't hear what you've said
We weave and dodge, we must evade
Let's land inside that cave

You can run, you can hide but they will find you
TIE after TIE
If you falter they'll blast you, they'll be waiting
TIE after TIE

Over the forest moon, the final battle rages on
Han will have those shields down, what is taking him so long?
Armed and ready, Death Star attacks
We learn that it's a trap

You can run, you can hide but they will find you
TIE after TIE
If you falter they'll blast you, they'll be waiting
TIE after TIE

TIE after TIE
TIE after TIE

I can't shake him
What should I do?
And now I've lost Artoo

You can run, you can hide but they will find you
TIE after TIE
If you falter they'll blast you, they'll be waiting
TIE after TIE

You can run, you can hide but they will find you
TIE after TIE
If you falter they'll blast you, they'll be waiting
TIE after TIE

TIE after TIE
TIE after TIE
TIE after TIE
TIE after TIE
