LYRICS

1. By and By

Lyrics by: Brigitte DeMeyer
Music by: Joacim Backman and Brigitte DeMeyer
©2004 Brigitte DeMeyer/BDM Music

Yesterday was common ground that
Latent kings shall tread upon
Mariner set far beyond
Ere to find their love at home,
Find their love at home

There go I with outstretched hand
A stranger in familiar land
Every time love’s path to cross
I’m finding what was never lost,
What was never lost

Yonder way, on the horizon
Love awaits you, running wild
Ever there shall I reside
There to meet you by and by

Time is a treasure yet unveiled
Only after it has sailed
Hasten not the journey’s flow
And revel in what lies below,
In what lies below

Yonder way, on the horizon
Love awaits you, running wild
Ever there shall I reside
There to meet you by and by

2. Mama’s On a Mission

Lyrics by: Brigitte DeMeyer
Music By: Brigitte DeMeyer & Chris Rossbach

Mama’s on a mission dishing out the wisdom
Papa got his wings and he ain’t coming back
Granny’s in the back yard kicking up the daisies
Sister’s preaching to the choir from her cadillac

Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh

Hillbilly jaybird living for the big time
Rides the daily landslide into town
Chirping like a heavy, just to make a dollar
Singing for her supper ‘til the sun comes down

Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh

Testifying to the judge
You try to pass inspection but he don’t budge
Shine your boots and stake your claim
Salute the sun but you pray
You pray for rain

Back wood, no good, wanna-be, never could
Get a handle hold a candle jump the shelf
Found that he could be king if he played a six string
Blowing them down like he’s the wind himself

Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh

3. Honey Darlin’

Lyrics and Music by: Brigitte DeMeyer
©2004 Brigitte DeMeyer/BDM Music

Honey darlin’
Let me tell you
I been wanting to talk to you, for so long
I got something, deep inside me
And it’s where it don’t belong

Honey darlin’
Got me itchin
And-I’m-fixin-to-over flow
In the start you were bewitching
But it’s time to let you go

It’s been a long time coming
And it’s burning like a sin
I’m a freight train running
Never coming back again

It’s been a long time coming
And you’re finally closing in
I’m a freight train running
Never coming back again

Honey Darlin’
Sitting pretty
Got your ducks all in a row
You can bet your bottom dollar
They’re gonna follow where you go

Honey darlin’
You’re a diamond
And you’re blinding everybody you see
I see you’ve got your mind made up now
And you’re aiming your sites on me

Honey darlin’
Ain’t you precious
Looking fine upon that throne
But I think I got your number
Can’t get water from that stone

4. Something After All

Lyrics by: Brigitte DeMeyer
Music By: Brigitte DeMeyer & Chris Rossbach
©2004 Brigitte DeMeyer/BDM Music

They told me for a dollar I could see the colors of rainbow
I went up to the counter and laid my money down
Guess you could call me naive but I’ve been checking out the window
Sooner or later I think it’s going to come around

Living proof will testify to never underestimate desire
Talk about Mohammed and the mountain could well be true
Table my regret and place my hand upon a stack of Bibles
I’d swear I never meant to make a memory out of you

If we make it baby
We can rule the world
I will be your sword
I will be your pearl
All this writing on the wall
Must be good for something after all

I don’t know why but every time I hear the wind I think about you
Your name blows and echoes through the leaves
Guess you could call me naive but I’ve been checking out the window
Sooner or later may it carry you home to me

If we make it baby
We could rule the world
I will be your sword
I will be your pearl
All this writing on the wall
Must be good for something after all

5. More Than I Can Do

By Steve Earle

I’m trying hard to let you go
But it’s more than I can do
And every day or two
I wind up right back where I started
I’m trying not to let you know
That I’m still in love with you
I can’t just sit home blue
‘Cause there ain’t no rest for the brokenhearted
Just because you won’t unlock your door
That don’t mean you don’t love me anymore
So, I’m never gonna let you go
No matter what you do
Because you know it’s more than I can do
You told me that I got to stop
But it’s more than I can do
And that ain’t nothing new
‘Cause we both know that I’m crazy about you
You said you’re gonna call the cops
But I ain’t gonna run
Because you’re the only one
There ain’t no way I could live without you
You left me just when I needed you
So l ain’t even close to through with you
So, I’m never gonna let you go
No matter what you do
Because you know it’s more than I can do

6. Good As Gone

Lyrics by: Brigitte DeMeyer
Music By: Brigitte DeMeyer & Chris Rossbach
Copyright 2004 Brigitte DeMeyer/BDM Music

All the way to Lancashire
Running like a thief
Cross the northern hemisphere
Just so I could breathe

Get it right with circumstance
Get it right with God
Pushing a whole mountain
Just to get a nod

If not for the love of you
I’d be good as gone
If not for the love of you

I’ve been called the gambling kind
Skating on thin ice
I’m just here on borrowed time
Said it once I said it twice

In the twinkling of an eye
You live and live until you fly
The road to heaven can be hell
Least as far as I can tell

If not for the love of you
I’d be good as gone
If not for the love of you

If you looked closer at me
You’ll know just who, you can believe
Where I stood I saw the edge
Coming under my next step

I’d be good as gone
If not for the love of you

7. You Wrecked Up My Heart

By Buddy and Julie Miller

You wrecked up my heart
With your careless love
Took me all apart
Now the damage is done
My minds is all in pieces
It’s way beyond repair
You wrecked up my heart and you don’t care
You use to be so sweet to me
I follow you right out on the ledge
And when I took that lovers leap
Well baby you pushed me right over the edge
You wrecked up my heart
With your careless love
Took me all apart
Now the damage is done
My minds is all in pieces
It’s way beyond repair
You wrecked up my heart and you don’t care

I guess I should have looked both ways
When I pulled out on the highway of your love
Cause you were moving way too fast
And now I just one more hit and run
You wrecked up my heart
With your careless love
Took me all apart
Now the damage is done

My mind is all in pieces
It’s way beyond repair
You wrecked up my heart and you don’t care

8. Long Road

Lyrics by: Brigitte DeMeyer
Music By: Brigitte DeMeyer & Chris Rossbach
©2004 Brigitte DeMeyer/BDM Music

I heard it said along the way dear
Nothing ever stays the same
Like the back of my own hand here
Thought I knew the master plan

It’s going to be a long road, without you
A long road without you
Anywhere I’m going to
It’s going to be a long road, without you

Sand a-running through my fingers
Are the days since you’ve been gone
And the brush of your kiss lingers
Like a day that’s never done

It’s going to be a long road, without you
A long road without you
Anywhere I’m going to
It’s going to be a long road, without you

Some have prayer some have superstition
Upon my very soul do I rely
While some may beg forgiveness
I will let my sunken treasures lie

9. Latter Days

Words and Music: Detweiler (Over the Rhine)

What a beautiful piece of heartache
This has all turned out to be
Lord knows we’ve learned the hard way
All about healthy apathy

And I use these words pretty loosely
There’s so much to life than words

There is a me you would not recognize dear
Call it the shadow of myself
And if the music starts before, I get there
Dance without me
You dance so gracefully
I really think I’ll be ok
They’ve taken their toll these latter days

Nothing like sleepin’ on a bed of nails
Nothin’ much here but our broken dreams
Ah, but baby if all else fails,
Nothing is ever quite what it seems

And I’m dyin’ inside to leave you
with more than just clichés

There is a me you would not recognize dear
Call it the shadow of myself
And if the music starts before, I get there
Dance without me
You dance so gracefully
I really think I’ll be ok
They’ve taken their toll these latter days

But tell them it’s real
Tell them it’s really real
I just don’t have much left to say
They’ve taken their toll these latter days
They’ve taken their toll these latter days

10. I See You

Lyrics by: Brigitte DeMeyer
Music By: Brigitte DeMeyer, Chris Rossbach and Darryl Jones
©2004 Brigitte DeMeyer/BDM Music

Never could see round the cornor
Never could see round the bend
Fortune teller’s getting old
Knows a little something ‘bout a lot of things

In every minute
In every mile that I pass through
The days may fall like rain but I see you

Let my heart do all the walking
And with every other step or two
Tomorrow’s going to do the talking
Gonna make my way ‘cause baby I see you

In every minute
In every mile that I pass through
The days may fall like rain but I see you

All relative I do suppose
Some see the thorns some see the rose

In every minute
In every mile that I pass through
The days may fall like rain but I see you

11. Ruby

Lyrics and Music by Brigitte DeMeyer
©2004 Brigitte DeMeyer/BDM Music

Ruby, Ruby in my hands
With a glimmer and a glance
Here one minute gone the next
Like a jewel upon the sand

Did you know that you were mine
Was it ever really true
Liken me to the Divide
Heart and head done come in two

Into the deep into the blue
You know I’d go to the end for you
Yesterday is but a distant cry
Now you’re sailing away, goodbye

Tell me why’d you come round here
Ring the bell and disappear
In my fated repertoire
All that’s left of you is lore

Ruby, Ruby in my hands
With a glimmer and a glance
Here one minute gone the next
Like a jewel upon the sand

Into the deep into the blue
You know I’d go to the end for you
Yesterday is but a distant cry
Now you’re sailing away, goodbye
