Allie started out playing drums in various bands in the early 90s in the seacoast of NH. She sang back up in most projects, and as a result cultivated her love for harmony, and picked up a guitar and started to write. Fronting a few different projects over the years, and spending a lot of time recording in her various home studios, she has recently ended a long hiatus and has began writing again. She is currently in the process of a new release scheduled for early spring.

Lyrics

Beautiful

Written By: Allie Gerbrands

If you saw me standing alone
would you hold out your hand
If you saw me standing alone
would you call me friend
If I you walked on by would you smile
If I walked right by would you
sigh
If you didn't know me,
would you think I'm
beautiful
When you first discovered me
what did you think
and if you'd seen me sitting alone
would you have bought me a drink
If I walked on by, would you have noticed the color of my eyes
if I walked just close enough
would you have heard my cries?
If you didn't know me,
would you think I'm
beautiful
I think you're beautiful

Why

Written By: Allie Gerbrands

Make your mind up
Go or stay
but tell me truthfully
or leave today
the way you cut me with your lies
because the truth you so dispise
I want to know
why you want to go
next to nothing
is all I asked
you've gone off wandering
on your next path
the way you shoot me with your smile
puts me right into denile
I want to know
why you want to go

Be You

Written By: Allie Gerbrands

Misunderstanding, is a basis for change
so be demanding, and care not what they say
hold your ground now, fight for all you want
never come down, and never let go cause,
you can only do what you do, you can't be anyone else, so be you
you can only do what you do, you can't be anyone else, so be you, just be true to you
It's got you thinkin, and that's the way it goes, the time is tickin, and who is in control of, all your faith, and all your destiny, all of your good intentions, and you re-invent yourself but,
if you could only see what you do, the way the others see you, than you'd be true, if you could only see what you do, the way the others see you, than you'd be you, you'd be true to you
think back to when it all made sense, what was your mood then
it's a fine line, between cock and confidence, when did you decline
You'd better make up your mind, make up your mind
you can only do what you do
you can't be anyone else, so be you
if you could only see what you do, the way the others see you, than you'd be true, you'd be you.
