Sam Brown Liberty In Reality

Liberty in reality… isn’t all it’s made out to be

Liberty… is a wonderful thing but it doesn’t mean you’re free

Liberty in reality… can’t take the moon out of the sky

Liberty… can’t take the stars out of your eyes

You should never have to let go

Of what’s inside and what you know

Let your heart swing next to your soul

Keep what’s inside and hold it close

Liberty in reality… they’ll hound you hard all through your life

Liberty… but no-one can stop you asking why

You should never have to let go

Of what’s inside and what you know

Let your heart swing next to your soul

Keep what’s inside and hold it close

Sam Brown Kissing Gate

Meet me at the kissing gate

I know that’s where you want to be

Meet me at that lonely place

Won’t you just do this for me

Wow is a word that’s not used

But that’s how I felt

When I first met you

How did it start

This change of heart

There’s one thing that you have to do

Meet me at the kissing gate

I know that’s where you want to be

Meet me at that lonely place

Won’t you just do this for me

Time and again we tried to make amends

We were making our way to a new brighter day

All we found

Was the end

Meet me at the kissing gate

I know that’s where you want to be

Meet me at that lonely place

Won’t you just do this for me

Sam Brown What’s The Use?

I’ll blow you from this planet like a rocket

With a few wicked lashes of my tongue

I won’t stop ’til you’re long dead and forgotten

I’ll squash you ‘twixt my finger and my thumb

I could try to help or I could try to understand

If I extend myself I know that you’ll do something underhand

What’s the use… you’re way beyond redemption

What’s the use… forget divine intervention

What’s the use in saving you… what’s the use

One day you will just wither and droop over

You’ll shrivel up and crumble like a leaf

You’ll be left alone like Scrooge with all your money

To expire with your hollow weak beliefs

I could try to help or I could try to understand

If I extend myself I know that you’ll do something underhand

What’s the use… you’re way beyond redemption

What’s the use… forget divine intervention

What’s the use in saving you… what’s the use

Sam Brown Stop!

All that I have is all that you’ve given me

Did you ever worry that I’d come to depend on you

I gave you all the love I had in me

Now I find you’ve lied and I can’t believe it’s true

Wrapped in her arms I see you across the street

And I can’t help but wonder if she knows what’s going on

You talk of love but you don’t know how it feels

When you realise that you’re not the only one

Oh you’d better stop before you tear me all apart

You’d better stop before you go and break my heart

Ooh you’d better stop

Time after time I’ve tried to walk away

But it’s not that easy when your soul is torn in two

So I just resign myself to it every day

Now all I can do is to leave it up to you

Oh you’d better stop before you tear me all apart

You’d better stop before you go and break my heart

Ooh you’d better stop

Stop if love me

(you will remember)

Now’s the time to be sorry

(that day forever)

I won’t believe that you’d walk out on me

Oh you’d better stop before you tear me all apart

You’d better stop before you go and break my heart

Ooh you’d better stop

Sam Brown Heartbeats

I can take you downtown, where everything is brown

But the people there don’t care

‘Cos love is all around

You might think it’s ugly, but somebody once told me

Acceptance is harmony

And I feel okay

At least for today

You can breathe the air if you want to

But it leaves a nasty stain on the inside of you

You can eat that food, but you don’t know where it’s been

You can leave this dirty old world that we’re living in

But where will you go and anyway

You only have so many heartbeats

The revolution’s coming, everybody thinks for themselves

There’s a nation humming

A tune that I know well

In the middle of commotion, everybody’s chasing their tails

There’s a single-minded notion

It’s all coming to us

Don’t make such a fuss

You can breathe the air if you wan tot

But it leaves a nasty stain on the inside of you

You can eat that food, but you don’t know where it’s been

You can leave this dirty old world that we’re living in

But where will you go and anyway

You only have so many heartbeats

Only in the morning when I reach for my mask

Only then I wish this breath could be my last

You can breathe the air if you wan tot

But it leaves a nasty stain on the inside of you

You can eat that food, but you don’t know where it’s been

You can leave this dirty old world that we’re living in

But where will you go and anyway

You only have so many heartbeats

Sam Brown S’Envoler

Dans la nuit

Argentée de l’été

Je laisserai

Une étoile filer

Nous aurons l’éternité des temps a’contempler

L’univers pour nous envoler

Timeless space

Endless night

Happiness and we will fly

You and I

Et mon áme

Loin du feu loin des flammes

Flottera doucement

Dans les cieux

Nous aurons l’éternité de temps a’contempler

L’univers pour nous envoler

Timeless space

Endless night

Happiness and we will fly

You and I

Sam Brown Mindworks

Philosophy gives itself freely to all of our minds

You have yours and I have mine

I’ll do you a favour completely free of charge

And tell you you’re wrong and I’m right

If you’d think it over maybe you’d come round to seeing reason

Think it over it’s something that’s out of your hands

Well I’m going right out of my head

It’s just a matter of time

Is there something that I could have said

That would make you change your mind

Or is it just the way your mind works

I wish I could conjure up something more pointed to say

But I’m just trying to tell you as a friend

Think it over think it over think it over again

You don’t have to borrow in order to lend

If you’d think it over maybe you’d come round to seeing reason

Think it over it’s something that’s out of your hands

I’m going right out of my head

It’s just a matter of time

Is there something that I could have said

That would make you change your mind

Or is it just the way your mind works

Sam Brown Nutbush City Limits

Church-house gin-house

School-house out-house

On highway number nineteen

The people keep the city clean

They call it Nutbush

Oh Nutbush

Call it Nutbush City limits

Twenty-five was the speed limit

A motorcycle not allowed in it

You go to school on fridays

To go to church on sundays

They call it Nutbush

Oh Nutbush

Call it Nutbush City limits

You’re gonna feel on weekdays

And have a picnic on labour day

You go to town on saturdays

But go to church every sunday

They call it Nutbush

Oh Nutbush

Call it Nutbush City limits

There’s no whiskey for sale

You get caught no bail

Soft port and molasses

Is all you get in jail

They call it Nutbush

Oh Nutbush yeah Nutbush City limits

Sam Brown T.O.E.S.

When Mother Nature puts her foot down

You can be sure we’ll all know about it

For the true power of the elements will be more

Than anyone bargained for

Think of… the biggest thunderstorm you have ever known

Think of… the darkest depths of the sea alone

Think of… ten foot snow drifts and the havoc they cause

Think of… Planet Earth and dare to call it yours

Nature can be such a comfort,

But we have all seen the other side

The cruelty of the cold, the desolation of the too hot sun

Diseases are there for all mankind, just waiting

Biding time, they’ll come and get us in the night

Like a monster to a frightened child

Think of… the biggest thunderstorm you have ever known

Think of… the darkest depths of the sea alone

Think of… ten foot snow drifts and the havoc they cause

Think of… Planet Earth and dare to call it yours

Sam Brown Pride And Joy

It’s so much harder so much harder

Than you thought it would be

You try and you try but you can’t see the light

You hide in the day and cry in the night

But don’t lose sight

It’s so much harder so much harder

Than you thought it would be

You’ve so many friends but you’re always alone

You’re trying to swim but you sink like a stone

You’re not on your own

Your knees get weak your hands are shaking

You get so scared that you can hardly speak

But hold on tight it’s a new surprise

I can see the tears are in your eyes

It’s so much harder so much harder

Than you thought it would be

You try and you try but you can’t see the light

You hide in the day and cry in the night

Who would have thought this pride and joy

Would end up being such a lonely boy

There goes love here comes hate

You get confused so you watch and you wait

By the time you wake up it’s all too late

It’s so much harder so much harder

Than you thought it would be

Your knees get weak your hands are shaking

You get so scared that you can hardly speak

But hold on tight it’s a new surprise

I can see the tears are in your eyes

This hate is only love in disguise
