Save Tonight

(Brian Hendrix)

I'm near 40, wrote this one in my early 20s, and it was my first contest placement. A buddy of mine named Leroy was a songwriter, and one day I brought him my stuff. He said he liked it, but my verses were too long, like pages - like Bob Dylan thought "Maybe these songs aren't long enough." And he said I should hone things down, so this is the first song I ever wrote in the typical accepted format. It's just about a busy couple who don't have time to spend together, so they decide to make the time.

Save tonight for me and you Slip out of those old clothes you worked in Kick off those shoes The way your body's movin', it's tellin' me something I can't refuse So it's decided we're gonna start the night lovin' And wait out that moon (Chorus) You worked hard all week, me too To get you alone, I know the minutes are few Enough time to say "I love you" But acting on that is harder to do And the kids play and stay up 'til dawn I want my goodbye kiss, but you're already gone I'll make time worth all; it's due And I'll... save tonight for me and you I pledge my heart and soul to you 'Cause you're the only one that I ever will love on My whole life through Everyday a different XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXX XX XX X XXXXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXXX XX XXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXX XXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXXX XXX XXX XXX XXXXXXX XXX XX X XXXXX XXXX XXXXX XXXX XXXXX X XXXX XXX XXXX XXXX XXX XXX XXX XX XXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXX XX XXX XXX XXXXXXXX

The colloquial, catchy phrase people love to use is the "wrong foot," suggesting a bad first step into something that doesn't turn out well. Well, what if you got off on the right foot? Imagine how better things could be.

Hang with You

By Brian Hendrix


Liked a girl once. Thought she was awesome. She wanted to be friends. I just wanted a chance to hang out with her. Wrote this for her. Turns out, she wasn't awesome. Such is life. The song's good, though, at least. I consider it a top 20.

When the Lights Are Off

Another song I consider one of my babies, definitely in my top 20 list. I reckon I oughta start posting the goods here. This one's just about loving. Simple enough. Two people right for each other, that burning passion.

Second Fiddle

By Brian Hendrix


Not a big story behind this one. One of those songs that you wake up at 4a.m. to write because it's stuck in your head. I always imagined Chris Stapleton's voice carrying this one. Pretty self-explanatory as to what the song means.

Der erste plattdeutsche Songtext hier muss natürlich ein Seemannslied, ein Shanty, sein. Der Text schildert das Leben an Bord eines Segelschiffes.

This song is about a marriage in which the wife is abusive. The husband had finally had enough and packed up the kids and got out of the toxic situation. Then the wife begs for them back. What happens next?... you’ll have to find that out yourself.
