Sam Brown Embrace The Darkness

I know you’re in there somewhere, just searching for yourself

And I also know you feel despair, you don’t need to cry for help

I’ve realised that feeling like a heart of ice that melts

And trickles down into your gut, and chills your every cell

I can’t tell you to ignore it

I can’t make it go away

Accept this as a part of you is all that I would say

Embrace the darkness

Don’t be afraid

Embrace the darkness

Let your soul be laid bare

Embrace the darkness

And reach within yourself

Embrace the darkness, embrace the dark

A broader sense of paradox might be our key to life

The something that we all look for could be there before our eyes

But does anybody give a care who’s wrong or what is right

Sometimes there may be more to gain if we would yield instead of fight

I can’t tell you to ignore it

I can’t make it go away

Accept this as a part of you is all that I would say

Embrace the darkness

Don’t be afraid

Embrace the darkness

Let your soul be laid bare

Embrace the darkness

And reach within yourself

Embrace the darkness, embrace the dark

Reach out reach in… have faith believe in yourself

Reach out reach in… take heart pay heed to yourself

Sam Brown Contradictions

We say a lot of things

We see a lot of changes

You always seem to know

Which way the wind is gonna blow

They hang on your every word

Just waiting for some direction

It’s all left up to you

They’ll follow in everything you do

Don’t you get tired of being the rock

The one that everybody know is gonna be alright

No-one sees you’re all tied up

You know that you don’t fool me

I know you’ve had enough

You’ve got your head in the sand and

You won’t get up

I know it’s plain to see

You’re walking around full of contradictions

Look out for number one

You know it’s the only solution

They’ll see it when you’re gone

You always were the chosen one

Sam Brown Timebomb

Time, time, time, tick ticking away

Tick ticking away like a timebomb

Time, time, time, tick ticking away

Tick ticking away like a timebomb

Gonna shout, gonna scream

Modern life’s a mean machine

Out of luck, out of space

Praying on the human race

Laugh out loud, to let off steam

Funny ‘cos I know your face

Permanently inbetween

You draw a king, they draw an ace

Time, time, time, tick ticking away

Tick ticking away like a timebomb

Time, time, time, tick ticking away

Tick ticking away like a timebomb

Try to stay cool, you’re no-one’s fool

The weirdest kid you knew at school

Forgetting or just breaking rules

From where he stands the world looks cruel

Throw him out, his roof removed

Stamped upon him not approved

Victims, yeah the people who

The jungle tries to keep from you

Time, time, time, tick ticking away

Tick ticking away like a timebomb

Time, time, time, tick ticking away

Tick ticking away like a timebomb

Moving, breathing, wheeling, scheming

Nearly stealing, double dealing

Hold on tight, you’re clutching fast

Hoping it’s not gonna last

Pinch myself, but I don’t wake up

Someone stole my buttercup

Caress turned to karate chop

Mercy someone, make it stop

Time, time, time, tick ticking away

Tick ticking away like a timebomb

Time, time, time, tick ticking away

Tick ticking away like a timebomb

Sam Brown Intuition

You know it

I know it

Our spider sense will prove

Yellow and blue make green

But harmony is not what it seems

Trust second sight to tell the truth

To talk with words unspoken

See with it… feel with it

Why leave this sense unopened

Read with it… breathe with it

Eyes half closed

Mind’s eye open

One ear to the ground

First impression

Second sight

Third eye

Forthright

Can you hear without a sound

To talk with words unspoken

See with it – feel with it

Why leave this sense unopened

Read with it – breathe with it

Sam Brown Troubled Soul

Betrayed by apathy most every day

With grey skies time and time again

The colour drains the darkest shadows pale

My eyes cloud over once again

A simple answer that I’ve never found

Some peace of mind to have or hold

A simple answer is it ever found

And do we really want to know

It’s just a troubled soul

And as I pace across my bedroom floor

I have a thought I feel a pain

But that’s forgotten in a moment

My eyes cloud over once again

The skies cloud over once again

A simple answer that I’ve never found

Some peace of mind to have or hold

A simple answer is it ever found

And do we really want to know

It’s just a troubled soul

Winter in a troubled soul

Betrayed by apathy most every day

With grey skies time and time again

But I won’t breathe a word for fear of rain

The skies cloud over once again

My eyes cloud over once again

Sam Brown Hypnotised

So here’s another story, a tale of love, a tale

Of hate. You talk of hope and glory but I

Don’t know if I can wait here all alone

Will you ever know

Hypnotised I’m sliding under

But will I fall I wonder

And would you stay forever

A life of love or just one day

So here’s another story, I sit and wait here

All alone. I just can’t help but worry, would

You leave me standing on my own. Here all

Alone will you ever know

Hypnotised I’m sliding under

But will I fall I wonder

And would you stay forever

A life of love or just one day

Sam Brown Henry

In your slate grey suit and black

Brogue shoes little horn rimmed glasses

You’ve got nothing to lose. but it’s just

Like a curse when you’re the owner of a

Hearse. you won’t get very far in your long

Black car

You make me shiver henry

Down at the mortuary

You’re not just ordinary

And I get all in a dream

Although you bring me roses

I’ll have to think it over

You’re not quite casanova

But I get all in a dream

You’re there all alone with your skin and

Your bones and the man in the back

Wants it all painted black

You make me shiver henry

Down at the mortuary

You’re not just ordinary

And I get all in a dream

Even though you bring me roses

I’ll have to think it over

You’re not quite casanova

But I get all in a dream

Sam Brown As The Crow Flies

Don’t mess with life

Don’t beat around the bush

Wear your heart on your sleeve

Don’t let anybody push you around

Hold a tight rein

And take up the slack

Learn to focus your brain

And you’ll never look back

Take it all in your stride

Walk the road of life

As the crow flies

Pick up your feet

And hold your head up high

You can meet people halfway

But never say die

Learn to play the game

But don’t live the lie

You can’t stop the rain

But you can still see the sky

Take it all in your stride

Walk the road of life

As the crow flies

Sam Brown April Moon

She was polishing the chairs

When the doorbell rang

She smoothed down her hair

And answered to a little old man

He gave her his widest grin and said

Would you mind if I came in and talked to you?

One April afternoon

Two shadows walking in the sun

Their final tune

Two shadows waiting for the April moon

She showed him the kitchen

And he pulled up a chair

As he was about to begin

He noticed her hair

He thought to himself

How beautiful she looked

And said

Would you mind if I took a picture of you?

April afternoon

Two shadows walking in the sun

Their final tune

Two shadows waiting for the April moon

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
