Break The Man

Written By: Attila Weinberger/BMI-Tom Hambridge/ASCAP

Break The Man

(music by Attila Weinberger/BMI – lyrics by Attila Weinberger/BMI-Tom Hambridge/ASCAP)

Word gets around about the things I’ve done

Days are lonely and the nights are long

Looking for the reasons for the things I do

I take the blame for hurting you

Now it seems I’ve lost this game

I am just a flowing river running down the drain

Wherever I turn it seems I can’t find my way

It cost me all I have, I still got to pay

Break the man, break the man, my prides in pieces

But all we have is beautiful

No matter who was right or wrong, we need forgiveness

Think it over baby, before you break this man

Walking down the streets in a pouring rain

I’m half way to nowhere, caught between peace and pain

I can’t change the way I feel for you

Let’s begin again, I will make it up to you

Break the man, break the man, my prides in pieces

But all we have is beautiful

No matter who was right or wrong, we need forgiveness

Think it over baby, before you break this man


Down On You

Written By: A.Weinberger/BMI-Tom Hambridge/ASCAP

Down On You
(music by Attila Weinberger/BMI – lyrics by Attila Weinberger/BMI-Tom Hambridge/ASCAP)

You keep playing hide and seek
All these stupid games make me weak,
Every day with you is a trick or treat.

You get me tongue tied, seeing red,
You put crazy thoughts in my head,
I can’t sleep at night in no empty bed…

I keep falling, down on you
I keep falling, down on you

As the water loves the rain,
As the sunshine loves the grain,
Every time I hear your name…

I keep falling, down on you
I keep falling, down on you

You know, my heart is bleeding
Lay down and watch me die,
Just another promise broken,
It’s just another lie.

I keep falling, down on you
I keep falling, ‘cause I want it to

Don't Kill The Melody In Me

Written By: A.Weinberger/BMI-Tom Hambridge/ASCAP

Don’t Kill The Melody In Me
(music by Attila Weinberger/BMI – lyrics by Attila Weinberger/BMI-Tom Hambridge/ASCAP)

Sometimes I know I treat you so unfair,
It may seem like I don’t even care.
Can’t you see my heart is on my sleeve,
So, don’t kill the melody in me.

You can lie to me, you can treat me bad,
You can do all those things that make me sad.
There’s just one thing – hear my plea
Please don’t kill the melody in me.

You can kick me out, you can take what’s mine,
Take it easy baby, I’ll give you some time.
If you still want to than you can set me free,
Just don’t kill the melody in me.

If you love me baby, as you declare,
You should know by now how much I care.
There’s just one thing baby, hear my plea
And don’t kill the melody in me.

Good Man's Gone

Your Good Man’s Gone
(lyrics&music by Tom Hambridge/Tom Hambridge Tunes ASCAP-Richard Fleming /Richard Fleming Music BMI)

Watcha gonna do, when the hen don’t lay
Rooster won’t crow at the break of day

Are you gonna cry, toss and turn all night long –
Watcha gonna do when your good man’s gone

Did a dirty deal, now you’re out of luck
How’s it gonna feel when I’m out of touch

I treated you right, you like to treat me wrong – hey hey
Watcha gonna do when your good man’s gone

I was a fool – but listen
I ain’t gonna be a clown
I won’t sit still, while you’re out running around

If you’re phone don’t ring then you know it’s me
Getting over you, that’s where I’ll be

When you need love, you can depend upon
Watcha gonna do when your good man’s gone

Point Of No Return

Written By: A.Weinberger/BMI-Tom Hambridge/ASCAP

Point Of No Return
(music by Attila Weinberger/BMI – lyrics by Attila Weinberger/BMI-Tom Hambridge/ASCAP)

I'm blocked on every turn
as I try to talk to you,
It's just a battle with the past... I realized
Our common ground will never last.

I thought...
We're all in this
forever...
You're so unpredictable, baby...

In a way, I guess... this is my point of no return

I wonder how to find
that sought after peace of mind,
I gotta go, gotta play, gotta try... don't go away
You got to help me fly.

Please say it!
We're in this together...
Life is so unpredictable, I know...

But in a way, I guess... this is my point of no return

Lights always shine on me, nights still so cold,
There’s no way I ever let you go.

Bring A Little Smile To Me

Written By: A.Weinberger/BMI-Tom Hambridge/ASCAP

BRING A LITTLE SMILE TO ME
(music by Attila Weinberger/BMI – lyrics by Attila Weinberger/BMI-Tom Hambridge/ASCAP)

Brothers and sisters, won’t you come along,
It’s time to get together, it’s time to sing this song.
With all the joy and wisdom that we can feel,
Bring a little smile to me.

We’ve got the freedom to loosen up our wings
Let’s use this freedom for the fundamental things,
As it’s written in the gospel for so many years
Bring a little smile to me.

When it seems life’s gonna fail you
And there’s no one left to help you through
When you can’t embrace the ocean
And the wheel isn’t turning right for you,
(Move on, just keep moving on …)
Got to be strong, It won’t be long
Before I’m moving on

While you’re searching back through your memories
(And they’re) Waving like the sea in the summer breeze,
Someone’s always standing by, you just might not see,
So bring a little smile to me …
