Lyrics

Come to the edge
Of the water she said
She held his hand
And lifted her head
To the sky

The moon cut a diamond
into her eye
And bathed her skin
In marble light

He’s gone she said
And never coming back
He’s left us
Both behind

And I fear for us
In this wicked world
It’s not the place
For you and I

Come to the edge
Of the water
She said
As a star
fell down
From the sky

Here we will sleep
By the ocean deep
And drift out
On the tide

Is that what you meant
By a beautiful death?
Said the boy
While his Mother cried

For that’s what you said
In the note that I raed
The one you
Left behind

Come to the edge
Of the water she said
As a cloud
Hid the moon
From the sky

I’m only a boy
But I’ll soon
Be a man
And I love you
With all of my life

I’ll make you strong
I’ll do all that I can
Keep you safe inside
And you  won’t cry

You won’t cry

But the deed
Had been done
In the chocolate
So warm
As sleep
Took a hold
Of their eyes

When the sun
Came up
The boy sat up
And saw her
There by his side
His Mother had gone
With the tide at dawn
And left her
Body behind

Come to the edge
Of the water
She said
As a star
fell down
From the sky

Here we will sleep
By the ocean deep
And drift out
On the tide

The Smell of Tabo

Oh bluebirds where do you go?

where do you go when the night time falls?

I once had a dream

you where not in it darling

I once had a dream

and it was so comforting

Bluebirds….

 

Tabo the smell of your skin

tabo the smell of that ancient perfume

 

I once had a dream…

-This is the first version of this song i since changed it a bit but haven’t uploaded it on soundcloud yet thanks for listing any comments good or bad are welcomed-

Love You Like Me

This song is a bit out of my comfort zone considering that Country is my style but I grew up listening to all types music so I gave it a go…Guess it was just one of those moods. I wrote, played, recorded, and produced this on Saturday so it may be a bit rushed.

Notes: I did redo the vocals from a previous post because someone said that I was a bit off so hopefully it’s better.

I’m meeting with a group of interested investors (they absolutely love my song “Stronger Man”) in Brentwood, TN this weekend about financing a demo CD with the 7-8 songs that I’ve written since June. I’m thinking about presenting them this song just to show them that I have range, so any constructive feedback is much appreciated. I’ll let you guys know how that goes if you care.

Also, can you guys help me pick the correct genre??

Many Thanks,

Brandon Johns

I sent my brother off,
to war the other day,
said keep your head on a swivel boy,
come back to your loved ones safe

I told him see you later,
cause goodbye means forever,
a tear sat in my eye,
we laughed and he was gone,

I pray to all the angels,
who are watching over him,
I give a time of silence
to our fallen women and men

Know this world is angry
its just a senseless fight
keep your faith and honor brother
your a hero in my eyes

Brand new song that i wrote and recorded on November 3rd 2012.  The essential point that i am making in this song is that we should not live a life that favors materialism. There are much finer things in life than what money can buy. I personally feel, based on life experience, as well as my viewpoint of others, that many of us have lost our way regarding this issue. Anyways, hope you you all enjoy the song.

Well, Looks like it’s Halloween again. It’s about time! I’ve been out of meat for about three weeks now…okey, porch lights on, candies in the kitchen, knives are all sharpened…Oh yes, cooome to the butcher…

(Old man)
Well hello there, aren’t you a scary pirate! Well, I’ve got some “booty” in the kitchen for you if you want some, “AAAR”! Oh, you must be a ninja. Well, I’ve got some ninja stars in the kitchen for you if you want one. That’s right you two, come right in…

(Child)
There lives an evil man, he lives across from my best friend; I heard he likes to eat the kids who come to his house for candy…

(Old man)
Well hello officer, is there a problem?…Kids are missing you say! No, I haven’t seen any kids this evening…What?! The kid across the street says that I’m evil does he?…Well, I’ll be talking to him and his parents VERY soon…

(Singing narrator dude)
Watch out, for the butcher man! He’ll take your hand right from you. Look out, he’s a a crazy man! He’ll take your toes and make tacos… Watch out, for the butcher man! He’ll take your foot right from our shoe…Look out, he’s a crazy man; He’s got a taste for kids in costume.

Distance

Verse:
Hold me, even when I seem distant please
Love me, even when I am gone

Chorus:
‘Cause I need you, I need to know it’s alright
So keep me close when I seem far away
Hold my hand, in your thoughts at least
’cause I feel so lonely

Verse:
Find me, I think I’ve lost myself again
oh please, don’t let me disappear

Chorus:
‘Cause I need you, I need to know it’s alright
So keep me close when I seem far away
Hold my hand, in your thoughts at least
’cause I feel so empty

Bridge:
I dream of you, I long for you
yet still you seem a blur
there’s something missing inside of me
I hope to find once more
so won’t you help me
find myself again

Chorus:
‘Cause I need you, I need to know it’s alright
So keep me close when I seem far away
Hold my hand, in your thoughts at least
’cause I feel so lonely

Love is simple so it’s said

Advanced contributor gerrybhoy

Simple song, simple sentiment by a simpleton 🙂

love is simple, so it’s said

Love is simple
So it’s said
Like a rose
It should be red
But I know
That isn’t true
Love can make
A fool of you

See the guy
There at the bar
He’s a man
Who broke his heart
Chasing rainbows
And roses blue
For a girl
He hardly knew

Every penny
That he earned
And everything
He ever learned
You know he
Threw them all away
So she could
Live in luxury

Love is simple
So it’s said
Like a rose
It should be red
But you can find
A rose that’s blue
Love can make
A fool of you

See the girl
There in the car
With dark glasses
And headscarf
She is hiding
From the truth
Love’s not red
It’s black and blue

She has left
A thousand times
But only ever
In her mind
Love can keep
You together
Like glue
Some say fear
Can do that to

Love is simple
So it’s said
So tonight
When you go to bed
If there’s someone
Special next to you
Say the words
You know you should

The Fairest of Them All

Posted Lyrics Only!

I.
This time you fell and they laughed at you
Locking yourself up is all you wanted to do
Everyday you walked with your head down
You lied when you told yourself that you’re alright

II.
You remembered how much they gossiped
About your freckles and they called you inept
They made you question your worth
No more white cloths to throw, just go forth

Cho.
You weren’t born to impress them
Just light your own fire and remember your name
You are you, shine even more
Have a tight grip on your faith and open the door
Dress up, look up, look in the mirror on the wall
And believe that you’re the fairest of them all

III.
You’re not living to prove them something
Like you know badminton and that you were good at writing
They are not a saint nor an empress
So you don’t have any reason to be someone else

IV.
It doesn’t matter if they disapproved of you
As long as you know everything about you
Honey, you were made to stand-out
You are a diamond who’s fate is to shine tonight

Cho.
You weren’t born to impress them
Just light your own fire and remember your name
You are you, shine even more
Have a tight grip on your faith and open the door
Dress up, look up, look in the mirror on the wall
And believe that you’re the fairest of them all

V.
You have the wings so take a flight tonight
Be the knight of your life, go on and fight
“Mirror, Mirror on the wall”, you’ll say
“No need to compare yourself to Snow White”, I’ll say

Cho.
You weren’t born to impress them
Just light your own fire and remember your name
You are you, shine even more
Have a tight grip on your faith and open the door
Dress up, look up, look in the mirror on the wall
And believe that you’re the fairest of them all

You asked the mirror on the wall
But just believe that you are the fairest of them all.

Shake em on down

This is a recently recorded song. Its a bit more complete than the others that I’ve been posting on the site.

been to the mountains where time moves slow
been to the desert but I just don’t know
set a fire in heaven, cut in line on death row
do you want to shake em on down
are we gonna shake em on down

From the early early morning to the break of dawn
we’ll have a good time till the good times’re gone
Maybe then its Phoenix, maybe then Taiwan
Are we gonna shake em on down
do you want to shake em on down

Don’t miss the water till the well runs dry
My grandfather had one glass eye
can’t live forever even if you try
Do you wanna shake em on down
Are we gonna shake em on down

Lordy mama tell me what can you do
I got this gin got a little whiskey too
you’re a good lookin woman, I wanna talk to you
Are we gonna shake em on down
do you wanna shake em on down

take Denver road to the top of the hill
we’ll climb up on the wires, and fire up the still
the cops can’t even touch us, I got a license to ill
Do you wanna shake em on down
Are we gonna shake em on down

Your Cactus Heart

REVISED LYRICS

Verse I.
You were the trend last summer
Earning your title as a heartbreaker
You’ll tirelessly say, “I love her”
But you blew your words away, pricked her armor

Verse II.
It seems you’re made of steel
You were cold as the season, love like it’s real
They couldn’t read the spell in your eyes
And ended up with a soul of ice

Chorus:
“It’s not you, it’s me”, you’d say
You heated the situation to run away
You’re good at breaking hearts apart
Because no one can touch your cactus heart

You love yourself more than anyone else
You boasted danger, they never guessed
It’s not a game but you played it smart
Because no one can touch your cactus heart

Verse III.
There’s no one who can transcend you now
You’re best at letting their guards down
You rode on Alladin’s carpet to the desert
To avoid explaining your game made from dirt

Verse IV.
There’s so much fabric of romance in your eyes
But the aftermath was they chase you like a mice
You can’t be the typical prince charming
‘Cause you felt danger in happy endings

Chorus:
“It’s not you, it’s me”, you’d say
You heated the situation to run away
You’re good at breaking hearts apart
Because no one can touch your cactus heart

You love yourself more than anyone else
You boasted danger, they never guessed
It’s not a game but you played it smart
Because no one can touch your cactus heart

Bridge:
They said it’s forbidding with you
But there’s something I could do
I’ll show you that I can handle what’s inside
I’ll be the one who can hold your cactus heart

Chorus:
“It’s not you, it’s me”, you’d say
You heated the situation to run away
You’re good at breaking hearts apart
Because no one can touch your cactus heart

You love yourself more than anyone else
You boasted danger, they never guessed
It’s not a game but you played it smart
Because no one can touch your cactus heart

I’ll show you that I can handle what’s inside
Now let me hold your cactus heart.

ORIGINAL LYRICS

I.
You were the trend last summer
Marking your title as a heartbreaker
You’ll tirelessly say, “I love her”
But you blew your words in merry, breaking her armor

II.
It seems like you’re made of steel
You were cold like the season, love like it’s real
They couldn’t read the spell in your eyes
And ended up with a soul of ice

III.
You’re going down in the history
Ever since you planned your messed up stories

Chorus:
“It’s not you, it’s me”, you’ll say
You wrote a hundred lies to run away
You’re good at breaking hearts apart
Because no one can touch your cactus heart

You love yourself more than anyone else
Mistakenly thought that love is a conquest
It’s not a game but you played it smart
Because no one can touch your cactus heart

IV.
There’s no one who can transcend you
In letting their guards down, just so you know
You rode in Alladin’s carpet today
Just to avoid explaining your game in an essay

V.
There’s so much fabric of romance in your eyes
But the aftermath was they chase you like a mice
You can’t be the typical prince charming
‘Cause you’re fond of holding tragic endings

VI.
Hearts you have deceived can’t be counted
For a chess game is all you ever wanted

Chorus:
“It’s not you, it’s me”, you’ll say
You wrote a hundred lies to run away
You’re good at breaking hearts apart
Because no one can touch your cactus heart

You love yourself more than anyone else
Mistakenly thought that love is a conquest
It’s not a game but you played it smart
Because no one can touch your cactus heart

Bridge:
You’re no good when it comes to perfect fantasies
‘Cause with you it’s forbidding as it says
But who it is that can handle what’s inside
The only one who can hold your cactus heart?

Chorus:
“It’s not you, it’s me”, you’ll say
You wrote a hundred lies to run away
You’re good at breaking hearts apart
Because no one can touch your cactus heart

You love yourself more than anyone else
Mistakenly thought that love is a conquest
It’s not a game but you played it smart
Because no one can touch your cactus heart.

Who it is that can handle what’s inside
The only one who can touch your cactus heart?

Young singer/songwriters can benefit from the experience of an older partner. Over the years I have worked with many younger musicians who have given me back as much as I have given them. Roots and Americana music is based in merging history with new audiences in a real way. We write only what we know well. The energy of youth tempered and twisted by someone who has been there makes for a great combination. Very believable and enjoyable. Widen your base audience and enjoy all.

Lyrics-

Climbing up the back stairs

In the middle of the day

All my promise is thrown away

Out the window the city street

I can’t see out from my knees

Lying on the floor

In the middle of the day

As the sweat drips on my face

Blind my vision blind the time

Strike my body one more time

Just a minute

For the moment

Dreaming in the Night

Advanced contributor gerrybhoy

Written as part of this years 50/90 effort

dreaming in the night

There’s a man
At our door
He’s almost
Killed before
And he wants
To borrow
Our radiogram
Seems the answer
Is no
Now we’re
Barracading the door
And he’s outside
Trying to
Break it down

And I hear screaming
Inside
I think I
Was screaming inside

A man
In a camel coat
Taxi ride
Of no note
Except it was
Late, late, late
In the night
Reflection
Of the light
On the blade
Of a knife
Don’t ask questions
It’ll be alright

And I was
Just dreaming
Through the night
I was dreaming
In the night
And I was
Dreaming in the night

An ember
Of red hot coal
A face
And the blackest
Hole
The blackest
Hole
I could find
To hide
These are
Just dreams
She said
Then she smiled
And left
Never said goodbye

And I hear screaming
Inside
I was
Just dreaming
In the night

And I hear screaming
Inside
I was
Just dreaming
In the night
