BRENDAN JAMES lyrics - The Day Is Brave

The Other Side

Original and similar lyrics
I was a child once The fear of the world in my eyes Far from the safety of the other side I colored by numbers Learned how to tie my own shoes Like all the others I was just Prayed I'd make it through Prayed I would make it through Oh mother look how your boy turned out Three hundred miles from that small town You never stopped believing Oh daddy, it hurt to watch you walking out But understand it made me stronger now And so satisfied, so full of pride Thank you here from, from the other side I'll always remember The kids and how'd mean they'd been Eleven years old and I could, could not fit in But I made it through high school And college according to plan The pressure was never greater to become a man Would I become a man? Oh mother look how your boy turned out Three hundred miles from that small town You never stopped believing Oh daddy, it hurt to watch you walking out But understand it made me stronger now And so satisfied, so full of pride Thank you here from, from the other side Thank you here from, from the other side Mother look how your boy turned out Three hundred miles from that small town Dad it hurt to watch you walking out Hear the piano do the crying no For all the preachers and the teachers, now For all the ones who never let me down I'm so satisfied, so full of pride Standing here on, on the other side Thank you here from, from the other side Thank you here from, from the other side Here on, on the other side I'm taking my time There's nothing to fear There's nothing to worry about On the other side I remember when I thought I'd never find The other side

Forgive Her Anything

ELVIS COSTELLO "Blood Chocolate"
(Written by Elvis Costello, Oh, a TV went off like three day old milk That shook this town down better than most And it always was less of idea and more of a boast Oh, you're burning in the bloom of life 'Til you're powder in the grave Or you're pounding in the counter beggin' for more 'Til you evaporate You'd forgive her anything If you look like you, my pretty Miss I wonder where you are tonight And this place becomes pityless Oh, I couldn't sleep, but I can't complain Oh, this won't hurt a bit, oh, this won't hurt again When the roof comes down and the walls move in Oh, he didn't know it could feel like that And your face turned away and the day turned black And the rain fell like a curtain Oh, it's my turn to begin To forgive her anything You'd forgive her anything If you knew what I know You'd forgive her anything So where did all my pride go? Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh, oh, you'd forgive her anything If you knew what I know You'd forgive her anything So where did all my pride go?

I Took It With Me

JASON ALDEAN "Old Boots, New Dirt"
When I passed that city limits sign I knew that I was finally on my own So I put my foot down on the gas To see how fast those wheels could get me gone Everything about that place made me who I am They say once you leave You can't go back again So I took it with me That cloud of red dust rollin' up That Georgia blue sky settin' sun Straight up Highway 41 I took it with me That wild streak That fightin' side That born to run on Friday night That standing tall small town pride I took it with me Well they say this world can change you fast Kick you right on back where you belong So I roll my sleeves up everyday And that's just what you do where I come from Everything I ever knew I bottled up inside When I need a shot of back home It ain't hard to find So I took it with me That cloud of red dust rollin' up That Georgia blue sky settin' sun Straight up Highway 41 I took it with me That wild streak That fightin' side That born to run on Friday night That standing tall small town pride I took it with me I might be a thousand miles away But it's still crystal clear I see that picture in my mind And I keep it right here 'Cause I took it with me That cloud of red dust rollin' up That Georgia blue sky settin' sun Straight up Highway 41 I took it with me That wild streak That fightin' side That born to run on Friday night That standing tall small town pride I took it with me Yeah, yeah I took it with me Ohhhh, I took it with me

The Other Guy

JESSE MCCARTNEY "In Technicolor"
The selfish part of me needs for you to stay 'Cause girl you keep a smile stretched across my face And I would give anything now But you would lose everything now The way your lips move when you say my name The smell of your hair on my pillow case And I would give anything now But you would lose everything now If I'd had it my way I'd never let you walk out the door But my heart is heavy with something that I just can't ignore Girl, I'm sitting here wondering what it is that we've done Baby who am I to be that other guy? 'Cause I've seen tables turned, a world of hurt I'd never wanna feel twice, I know what it's like from the other side So baby who am I to be that other guy? This could be our home girl, a special place Something much more than your great escape Girl I would give anything now if you didn't had everything now It doesn't have to be that you feel the same You're telling me your love for me would never change Unless you change everything now it doesn't mean anything now If it's him that you've chosen, then we need to stop closing the door 'Cause while he's at home waiting, then we can't pretend there's something more Girl, I'm sitting here wondering what it is that we've done Baby who am I to be that other guy? 'Cause I've seen tables turned, a world of hurt I'd never wanna feel twice, I know what it's like from the other side Ooh oh, I know it's not an easy choice to make Ooh, 'cause no matter what you do A heart will break Girl, I'm sitting here wondering what it is that we've done Baby who am I to be that other guy? 'Cause I've seen tables turned, a world of hurt I'd never wanna feel twice, I know what it's like from the other side So baby you decide who is that other guy? 'Cause baby, who am I to be that other guy?

MADDI JANE
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh It's late in the evening Glass on the side I've sat with you For most of the night Ignoring everybody here Wish that they would disappear So we could get down now Well I don't wanna know If you're getting ahead of the program I want you to be mine, baby Won't you pull me close And take a step into no-man's land Into a sky full of stars I wanna give you my heart Go on and tear me apart Well I don't care if you do As long as I'm with you Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh This love is a blaze I saw flames from the side of the stage And the fire brigade comes in a couple of days Let it go until our roads are changed Singing we found love at a local rave No, I don't really know what I'm supposed to say But I can figure it out and I can hope and pray Told him my name and said, "It's nice to meet ya" Babe, where you're from, I don't think I've seen ya I already know he's a keeper The smile's making me a believer From this one small act of kindness I'm in D-d-d-d-d-d-d-d-d-deep, yeah Cause in a sky full of stars You know you're lighter the more it gets dark Cause in a sky, cause in a sky full of stars I think I saw you, ohhhh you oh I think I see you I think I see you
