Brad Moore

BandPopSinger/Songwriter

I write and record acoustic driven folk/pop/rock songs with the odd ballad thrown in for good measure. I love anything with lots of heart, lots of soul and loads of guitars.

Biography

I may have started out learning the guitar to try and impress a girl, but after seeing Brett Garsed's amazing playing live with John Farnham at Expo 88, I knew exactly what I wanted to do for the rest of my life - play the guitar and write songs.

Over 20 years, numerous bands and countless guitars later, that's still what I wanna do today - play music and write songs. I never did get that girl, but I ended up with an even greater love - playing music! More than anything, I wanna get up every morning and know that my only job for that day is to work on a song.

There's no better feeling in the world than expressing yourself through music and I love the fact that I have the opportunity to do that.

I wasn't blessed with a front man's voice like Bono, Sting or John Farnham, but I can hold a tune and sing well enough to get my ideas accross. Ultimately, I'd love to collaborate with a great vocalist so I could hear someone with a quality voice singing my songs.

I was doing some recording once and the sound engineer said my songs were like "Garth Brookes meets The Screaming Jets". I'm more than happy to have that as the definition of my song writing style.

The bottom line is that I love music, I love the guitar and would love to be a full time song writer!

Lyrics

All My Life

Written By: Brad Moore

Verse 1
Somewhere down this endless road I’ll try
‘Cos I have seen the fire in your eyes
You think you hold the future in your hands
But sometimes things don’t work out how we planned

Bridge
So walk away with your love, if it don’t feel right
If this ‘ain’t what you’re looking for - that’s life

Chorus
Cos if you say it’s true
And you can feel it too
And you want me to
I will stay with you right by your side
All my life

Verse 2
The dreams that come to haunt me in the night
If only I could somehow make things right
I need to know if what I feel is true
‘Cos everything inside of me wants you

Bridge

Chorus

Solo

Chorus to End

The Night Time

Written By: Brad Moore

Verse1
I wanna see you, face to face
So I can please you, a million ways
You got me burning, I won’t deny
I wanna touch you and make you mine

Chorus
This is what I love about the night time
Everyone is trying to break their chains
Running free and living for the night time
‘Cos t makes you wild, well it makes you go insane

Verse 2
The streets are burning, the nights alive
Beneath the darkness it starts to rise
It takes your body, it takes mind
It’s just a yearning you can’t define

Chorus

Solo

Chorus to End

Elly's Song (I'll Think of You)

Written By: Brad Moore

Verse 1
It’s 2AM in the morning and I just poured out my heart
I’m trying to get to know you ‘cos I felt if from the start
I think you understand me, that’s why it feels so real
Or is it ‘cos you’ve been there too and you know just what I feel

Bridge
You made me feel like trying
You made everything so new
So if I’m ever feeling down, I’ll think of you

Verse 2
It’s like you came from nowhere, just an answer to my prayers
I longed to hold you in my arms and run my fingers through your hair
You’d let me talk for hours but you’d never say a word
But I could look into those eyes and I’d know that I’d been heard.

Bridge

Chorus
I’ll think of you - Underneath the moonlit sky, you helped me find the reasons why
Just think of you - I was lost and had no clue, then I found the strength in you
I’ll think of you - Never took the time to say, thought there’d be another day
Think of you

Verse 3
I think I’d wait forever if it meant that you’d be mine
But some things are better left as a memory for all time
You knew that I was hurting and you helped to pull me through
There had to be a reason that life led me there to you.

Bridge

Chorus

Extended Chorus
I’ll think of you - I’m seeing things with brand new eyes, gotten passed the hate and lies
I’ll think of you - And everything I owe to you, it’s all because of you
Just think of you
I’ll think of you
Just think of you
I’ll think of you
