Benjamin Brown EP "A Friend" Broken, but not beaten Hurtin', yet still stay Leanin' on uneven floors Bless the heart - of you & yours. 'Yer secret, is safe with me And I will carry all your pain But I won't cry with you honey Help you up, like ya done for me. "When The Flames Came" Captured and framed - Seen again and again Condemned face has faded You've dreamed this before - A nightmare and nothin' more But you're not sleepin' - Drown in your own reason - Why don't you? Your haste is hazy - eyes sold too loosely Why won't you end me already? Your white lies - shall leave you blind And you'll be forced to listen To my demons - you've been blessing' - Stained and desecrated - Your beloved Well, well, well now A chip off your blade And all the blame has Crumbled to clay And in the way of my Tracks you lay The smell of gasoline - When the flames came. "Keep" Sun breaks the fog - Just to touch her face Weeping on her knees - Unashamed Trying to keep - herself from laughing And gnawing - to stop - the bleeding When she sang her song - it hurt so good Hanging on - every word I would Your damnedest - I know, you could If my lips could reach - I'd kiss to keep Cuz this day is dead - need water to breathe Whatever life I've left You can have - the rest Aint' got a dime - to deserve to die Aint' got no loan - to play me home No devil's deal To soothe my soul. "Red Led" Dead man's boots - Cursed they may be "Keep on the move - Need em' more than me" - I'll sing, keen for him Exit wounds - None I can see Hid in the dunes - There are-a many - And I'll pray, for his family Red Led Gone on got him The weight he could not wager Well, Hell aint' much further - Dead Badlands - I'm bound down Footsteps left - On this ol' hollow ground And I hear - that 6 gun sound His wits were cold - And cutting slow Grave of gravel - So nothing' grows Red Led Gone on got him The weight he could not wager Well, Hell aint' much further - Dead. "Little Song" Well look it here - The sayer can't speak All my luck - I've already drunk I'm a black burned tree still standing - up Cut me down so I can heal - love When the river meets the road Here, have my heart - to hold Just enough but just once more Come back, don't go, I don't know how long Cuz Lord knows, I can't do it all - alone My body, not a bone to beckon When the river meets the road Here, have my heart - to hold. "Cryin' Wolf" Aint' nothin' new - Aint' nothin' old Always been - Hope I'm wrong What I know - Aint' so Cryin' Wolf - Don't cry no mo' Wrong ways are worn Sho be dead come morn When my blood is born No longer me torn End of the line - won't seem so lonesome And I'm smiling - for no reason Come shadow - under my door What are you - What are you waitin' for? Please learn me to let go Cuz what I know - aint' so Cryin' Wolf - don't cry no mo Aint' nothin' new - Aint' nothin' old Always been - Hope I'm wrong Hope I'm wrong. "Farewell" Shore I'ma headed for On a trail less traveled And when I go It'll be for good Evenin' fallin' And the winds are a rollin' in And the debt I owe Is as old as the hills Please believe me When I say goodbye Sweet dreams to ya And a goodnight Time drags on as Loves gone meager and mere And it's been a many a moon Since I knew you dear I'll look before I leap cuz Ashes won't wash me The oath divined Has passed away Please believe me When I say goodbye Sweet dreams to ya And a goodnight Root was severed Seed soak forever And never dies Shore I'ma headed for On a trail less traveled And when I go It'll be for good. *Available To Purchase on BandCamp/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/13enjamin13rown/app_204974879526524
