LYRICS

1. Another You

Words and Music by: Brigitte DeMeyer
©2002 BDM Music

If I’d seen it coming I
Might have seen it go and if
Not for all the running I
Surely might have known that
Something, something’s gone away

Some say hindsight it is
Twenty twenty but I say
Time has clouded and has
Simply rearranged the view
My ever loving view

I can see a day when time stood still
I can feel the wind from yonder hill
I can hear the sound of bells ring true
But I cannot seem to find another you

Time and again I have been told
Open my eyes don’t keep them closed
Guess I should have listened now
I am stuck here missing you
Now what’s a girl to do

Should you ever change your mind
Please understand that I was blind
Sometimes colors change there hue
I’ll be around for you

I can see a day when time stood still
I can feel the wind from yonder hill
I can hear the sound of bells ring true
But I cannot seem to find another you

2. By Yer Side

Words and Music by: Brigitte DeMeyer and Chris Rossbach

It all seems to come so easy
Least you make it look that way
You blow through me like the breeze
You don’t even hesitate
Your hands are full but there’s no load
That weighs you down, you’re made of gold

Oooh, won’t you take me by the hand and we will fly
Maybe we’ll get by
Oooh, I don’t know just what we’ll find but this I know
I’ll be by yer side

Spinning ‘round you like a planet
You don’t seem to mind it much
Shining like a beacon
Me a comet, you the sun
You always seem to be alright
What holds you down, what makes you fly?

Oooh, won’t you take me by the hand and we will fly
Maybe we’ll get by
Oooh, I don’t know just what we’ll find but this I know
I’ll be by yer side

If I were a firefly, for you I would glow
And if I were a river, then to you, I would flow

Oooh, won’t you take me by the hand and we will fly
Maybe we’ll get by
Oooh, I don’t know just what we’ll find but this I know
I’ll be by yer side

3. Roll the Wheels

Words by: Brigitte DeMeyer
Music by: Brigitte DeMeyer and Chris Rossbach

This means nothing less, this means nothing more
When it’s all said and done, you must go it alone
At the end of the day, the wealth is in the knowing
That if you walk away, what you’ve got you own

Whoever said that it would go down easy
What got you thinking you could slide on by
If you can run then why would you be carried
Roll the wheels and get on with the ride
Roll the wheels and get on with the ride

You walk around believing, that you ain’t made of glass
My eyes ain’t for deceiving, the truth is up for grabs
We are the only masters, of all that we survey
We are the lone disciples, of all that we create

Whoever said that it would go down easy
What got you thinking you could slide on by
If you can run then why would you be carried
Roll the wheels and get on with the ride
Roll the wheels and get on with the ride

We are the only masters
Of all that we survey
We are the lone disciples
Of all that we create

Whoever said that it would go down easy
What got you thinking you could slide on by
If you can run then why would you be carried
Roll the wheels and get on with the ride
Roll the wheels and get on with the ride

4. My Everything

Words and Music by: Brigitte DeMeyer
©2002 BDM Music

If the sun should forget to rise
And my last chance just waved goodbye
A hurricane came blowing through
There would be nothing I could do
But I’d still be alright if there’s you

If a robber-man came to my door
And cleaned me out from roof to floor
There would be nothing more I’d lose
There would be nothing more I’d choose
But I’d still be alright if there’s you

Though I was born a sensitive breed
And all I own is what I believe
I am a pauper without need
You are my everything

If a title wave washed me away
If we never saw the light of day
A single soul were far and few
There would be nothing I could do
But I’d still be alright if there’s you

Though I was born, a sensitive breed
And all I own’s what I believe
I am a pauper without need
You are my everything

5. Brother of Mine

Words and Music by: Brigitte DeMeyer
©2002 BDM Music

It would appear you’ve been run over
You got the world upon your back
It would appear you can’t move forward
It would appear you’re off the track

And I will tell you, brother of mine
What you gotta do is fly
Your heart will be your compass
It’s gonna steer you right
Brother, brother of mine

It’s enough to make you crumble
It’s enough to make you cry
You don’t have to be a hero
You just have to make it by

And I will tell you, brother of mine
What you gotta do is fly
Your heart will be your compass
It’s gonna steer you right
Brother, brother of mine

You’re looking for some kind of short cut out
There ain’t no mystery
Don’t want to see you drown in your self doubt
You hold the key
You choose how it’s gonna be

And I will tell you, brother of mine
What you gotta do is fly
Your heart will be your compass
It’s gonna steer your right
Brother, brother of mine

6. Big Boss Man

Words and Music By: Al Dixon & A. Smith

Big Boss Man
Can you hear me when I call
Big Boss Man
Can you hear me when I call
Well now you ain’t so big
You just tall, that’s all

Yeah you got me workin’ boss man
Workin’ ‘round the clock
I want me a drink of water and you won’t let me stop
Big Boss Man
Can you hear me when I call
Well now you ain’t so big
You’re just tall, that’s all

I’m gonna get myself a boss man
One who’s gonna treat me right
Work hard in the day time and rest at night

Big Boss Man
Can you hear me when I call
Well now you ain’t so big
You’re just tall, that’s all
Well now you ain’t so big
You’re just tall, that’s all

7. Nothing Comes Free

Words by :Brigitte DeMeyer
Music by Brigitte DeMeyer and Chris Rossbach
©2002 BDM Music

My disconnection notice came straight from you
Does my satisfaction have to mean that we’re through
I wear the same clothes and I walk the same way
I am no different than yesterday

Do what you will, don’t what you don’t
You choose a road and you make it your own
Write your own story, state your own plea
You get what you pay for
Nothing comes free

Was it better for you baby, when I was down
Were you higher up there with me on the ground
I climb my own mountain and I made my own crown
Does the bridge that we’ve been walking have to come down

Do what you will, don’t what you don’t
You choose a road and you make it your own
Write your own story, state your own plea
You get what you pay for
Nothing comes free

I’ve breeched no contract and I’ve broken no law
Pursuit of happiness is what I’m here for
I ride my own coat tails and I spin my own guns
Shot for the stars and I hit the sun

Do what you will, don’t what you don’t
You choose a road and you make it your own
Write your own story, state your own plea
You get what you pay for
Nothing comes free

8. Hands Cannot be Tied

Words and Music by: Brigitte DeMeyer and Chris Rossbach
©2002 BDM Music

I could go on like this forever
The rain it seems to have gone away
What good would come from my endeavor
What good would come if I stay

I’ve lost everything I ever thought I needed
I’ve been judged for things I never even tried
I am still sifting through these ashes
But I believe, my hands cannot be tied

I’ll wave the flag of my surrender
I can hear the trumpet sound it’s call for me
No tears will for my resignation
I won’t need to wear a veil of amnesty

I’ve lost everything I ever thought I needed
I’ve been judged for things I never even tried
I am still sifting through these ashes
But I believe, my hands cannot be tied

And it never did make sense to me
All this talk about identity
We were born divine
We were built to shine

I’ve lost everything I ever thought I needed
I’ve been judged for things I never even tried
I am still sifting through these ashes
But I believe, my hands cannot be tied
But I believe, my hands cannot be tied

9. Any Road

Words and Music by: Brigitte DeMeyer and Chris Rossbach
©2002 BDM Music

I’ve seen you on these streets before
Wandering on your own
Looks like you’ve tried about every door
Just trying to make it home
I see you wear your jacket close
To keep your sins from showing

Down any road that you go
I will follow
If a path cannot be known
I will ease your sorrow
Any road that you go

You can climb up any mountain
Sympathize with any plight
You can show yourself some love
Or you can show yourself some spite
Just when you think you can’t go on
That’s when you step into the light

Down any road that you go
I will follow
If a path cannot be known
I will ease your sorrow
Any road that you go

10. Ain’t the One

Words and Music by Brigitte DeMeyer
©2002 BDM Music

You walk one way while you talk the other
You bide your time from one lover to another
And all I really know is
You ain’t the one for me

You cross your heart on bended knee
Then I look around and you’ve double crossed me
And all I really know is
You ain’t the one for me

Shine or rain, tried and true
There was a time I’d rise and set for you
But you’ve got give it up, before you receive
So you ain’t, you ain’t
You ain’t the one for me

Ain’t complaining I’m just stating the scene
The world still spins round like a machine
The sky is still blue, the grass is still green
And you ain’t, no you ain’t
You ain’t the one for me

Shine or rain, tried and true
There was a time I’d rise and set for you
But you’ve got give it up, before you receive
So you ain’t, you ain’t
You ain’t the one for me

11. Roll Um Easy

Words and Music by: L. George

Oh I am just a vagabond
A drifter on the run
And eloquent profanity
It rolls right off my tongue
And I have dined in palaces
Drunk wine with Kings and Queens
But darlin’, oh darlin’
You’re the best thing I’ve ever seen
Won’t you roll um easy
Oh slow and easy
Take my independence
With no apprehension, no tension
You walkin’ talkin’ dream paradise
Sweet pair a’ dice
Well I been across this country
From Denver to the ocean
And I never met girls who could sing so sweet
Like the angels that live in Houston
Singin’ “Roll um easy, so slow and easy…
Play that Concertina, I’ll be your temptress…”
And baby I’m defenseless
Singin’ harmony
In unison
Sweet harmony
Gotta hoist your flag and I’ll beat your drum

12. Stand Where I Can See You

Words and Music by: Brigitte DeMeyer
©2002 BDM Music

I see you there
But you’re invisible
The light is on
But nothing ever shows
What you’ve got hiding
Underneath your skin
You won’t come out
You won’t come in

Won’t you stand where I can see you
Won’t you stand where I can see you
Won’t you stand where I can see you
You know I won’t take you down

One inch away
It could be a galaxy
Your kindred road
Anonymity
There is no right
There is no wrong
Heaven knows where we belong

Won’t you stand where I can see you
Won’t you stand where I can see you
Won’t you stand where I can see you
You know I won’t take you down

You’ve been looking up
You’ve been looking down
You’ve been running everywhere
Looking to be found

Won’t you stand where I can see you
Won’t you stand where I can see you
Won’t you stand where I can see you
You know I won’t take you down

13. Oh Darlin’

By John Lennon and Paul McCartney

Oh! Darling, please believe me Oh! Darling, please believe me
I’ll never do you no harm
Believe me when I tell you
I’ll never do you no harm

Oh! Darling, if you leave me
I’ll never make it alone
Believe me when I beg you
Don’t ever leave me alone

When you told me you didn’t need me anymore
Well you know I nearly broke down and cried
When you told me you didn’t need me anymore
Well you know I nearly broke down and died

Oh! Darling, if you leave me
I’ll never make it alone
Believe me when I tell you
I’ll never do you no harm

When you told me you didn’t need me anymore
Well you know I nearly broke down and cried
When you told me you didn’t need me anymore
Well you know I nearly broke down and died

Oh! Darling, please believe me
I’ll never let you down
Believe me when I tell you
I’ll never do you no harm
I’ll never do you no harm
Believe me when I tell you
I’ll never do you no harm
