World in Trouble

(Brian Hendrix)

I was checking Netflix for those original Superman movies, Christopher Reeve, and only found Supergirl. I'm a country music writer. Even still, I challenged myself to write a song that could be used as a theme for a superhero show, movie, series, etc. Five minutes later, this is what I had come up with. I think it's a great song. It's really about a girl who thinks she needs to be the best at everything to be loved, but the truth is that life is indifferent to you. Even if you're a hero, they only care about the hero, not about you, and they'll forget your name when you're gone. But it's laced with superhero references so hopefully I can one day hear it on a Netflix show. Enjoy.

(Chorus) A world in trouble stays in trouble 'Til you save it, baby Put on your cape and fly on over And we'll dance the night away A hero's flight, a hero's might And we long to see you try A world in trouble stays in trouble 'Til you come save it tonight V1 Lace up your boots, the trial is over The blistered ground sounds beneath The weight of tensed lungs on your shoulders The stomp pounds, grants their release Free as birds, they soar above Can't see if they drift into love They forget your name, the trial is over And they forget your name, the trial is over (chorus) V2 Hold on to your gun, the sky has fallen The clouds ease the ground for none Just make it harder to see the target Dizzy when the rain falls up Steady your hand to make a stand There's a line, can't see the sand You shoot for us now, the sky XXX XXXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXX XXX XX XXXX XXX XXX XXX XXXXXX XXXXXXXX XX XXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXXXX XXXX XXX XXX XXXXX XXX XXXXXXXXX XXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXX XX XXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXX XX XXX XXXXX XXXX XXX XXX XXXXX XXX XXX XXXXX XX XXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXXXXXX XXXX XXX XXX XXXXX XXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXXXXXX XXXX XXX XXX XXXXX XXXXXXXX

Snowfall in Alabama

By Brian Hendrix


This song is about a woman who just started a happy life with her husband, when he was sent off to war and never came home. She's shattered and turn, but she learns to appreciate the beauty in the small things in life. No one ever heals from that sort of tragedy, but she learns to cope and figures out ways to still let the happiness in.

Without You

By Brian Hendrix


I knew a girl once, went to school with her, same neighborhood, and she was typically miserable. 'Til she broke up with her man, then she became the strongest person around. I really think this song encapsulates the growth that a "nothing to lose" attitude can have on you, though it's also deeper than that - it touches on the dissonance of love and loss. We all know that feeling where you feel stronger on your own, but still like part of you is with that other person. You still cling onto the way that person made you feel at the best of times, and you live with that. Indefinitely. This one here, which I wrote just before winter '19, is in my top-10 list of personal favorites. Reading it bereft the melody, might take a few tries to figure out how the syllable emphasis works out in the chorus, but it works perfect once you find it.

Save Tonight

By 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.

The Right Foot

By Brian Hendrix


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.
