Come to Life

(Brian Hendrix)

My favorite song I've ever written. Perhaps my best. It has won 1st place in two contests, and 2nd place in a third. I have had four separate studios ask me to record it, my hesitation being that they would not allow my input in how they arranged it. I clung to it that tightly. Though after further consideration, I have to let it go. While it's mine, people who've read and heard it claim it's means a lot to them, and that they really enjoy it. It's my child; it really is. But like a bird, it has to fly on its own. My stubbornness in holding on to it isn't doing anyone any good. The song is about looking at a picture of my girlfriend, when she wasn't here, and swearing it was moving and speaking to me. Apparently, many people can feel this one like I can. That means a lot.

I might take it off the wall tonight I tell myself Or at least place it face down back there On an empty shelf Or somewhere else Where I won’t have to see your face smiling at me I shoulda took the damn thing down, I know A long time ago Never had the nerve to throw the thing away And just let you go Not sure what I hold on for It’s the same face I see every night in my dreams (Chorus) And your picture comes alive I swear you move in the right light You talk to me, you smile and say you’re mine And I feel you deep inside When I look into those eyes I know it’s fantasy, but, baby, they don’t see Your picture come to life To block it off, to no longer look Might rearrange the room But that don’t get me off the hook It just burns right through Images of me and you Where we used to hold each other close right here A braver man wouldn’t leave it up He’d tear it down But that man went away with you And he can’t be found No, XX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX X XXX X XXXXX XXXXX XXXXX XX XXX XXXX XXXXXXXX XXX X XXXXXXX XXXX XXX XXXX XXX XXX XXX XXX XX XXXXXXXX XXX XXX X XXXX XXXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXX XXX XXXXX XX XXXXX XXXX XXXXXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXX XX XXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXX XX XXX XXXXXXXX XX XX XXXXX XXXX X XXXXX XX XXX X XXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXXX XXX X XXXX XXXX XXXXXXXX XXX XXXX XXXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXXX

Almost Gone

By Brian Hendrix

My girlfriend will not be pleased I posted this here. It's her favorite song of mine that I've written. It's a western-style song, about a charlatan, a con artist, living in the old west before modernity settled in during the early 1900s. This guy runs his scams as a preacher, using saloon girls, to outright robbery, and realizes that the "west" he knows is almost gone. I really enjoy this song. Out of all I've ever written, it's my #2 favorite song. I don't want anyone else to have it, but it's time...

Country Takeover

By Brian Hendrix

I started writing this song when I was 19, in '99, and found it folded up on a piece of paper in an old book when I was doing some cleaning. I only had the chorus, but a note at the bottom of the page said "Give it a whirl," which is part of the lyrics. I decided to finish it up, after all these years. The song is really about how similar we all are, no matter where we come from, and how we all have a life to live, so live it while we still can. It's a chorus-driven song, even though the chorus isn't very long. In my head it sounds like Keith Urban singing it, for what it's worth.

On My Way to Leave You

By Brian Hendrix

This started as a talking blues song, with every forth line saying "On my way to leave you," but it ended up sounding too much like Townes' "Dollar Bill Blues" in cadence. So I reworked it here. It has a bit more of a talking-blues song cadence but certainly doesn't have to. It's about a guy who wants to leave his woman but can't bring himself to do it, so he gets around this by ensuring himself that today's the day... though he keeps finding excuses not to leave.

America Strong

By Brian Hendrix

A song I wrote to rally against the idea of collectivism, in any form, be it on the right or left, as it has wrought much pain and damage and millions upon millions dead. This is a song that speaks about the strength of individualism that stands for America. It's more anthem-themed. When it opens, it's a chant. "Ohh, ohh, ohh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh--oh-oh, ohh, oh-oh, ohh, oh-oh." Then after every line, I imagine a bit of a clap, or a thump on a bass drum, twice. E.g. "We stand up (boom, boom) We don't kneel (boom, boom)." I think people can get the gist when they read it.

Apocalyptic Infection

By Karianne Gabaldon

In thought of those suffering from COVID-19, and in memory of those who died. You are still a hero, you fought the good fight. And my heart goes out to the families of loved ones suffering; isolating themselves and having to live with the guilt of knowing their loved one is sick and fading. Just give it to God. You are loved.

Jede Ähnlichkeit mit Corona ist beabsichtigt. Corina hat das Dorf genau so überrollt, wie Corona die ganze Welt. Bleibt zu hoffen, dass Isolation bei Corona genau so wirksam ist, wie bei Corina.
