Biography

Since 2001, Bright Size.Life has been building a steady following in the Central Texas market with connections to Baylor University and the Waco community. Recently, the band has been performing along I-35, playing shows in Dallas, Ft. Worth, McGregor, Waco and Austin. Always willing to play local shows, the band is also well seasoned in opening for prominent acts such as Bill Cosby.
The four members of the group draw from their own personal influences and inspirations to create a unique style of music. As a result, the musicality of the band continues to be a conglomeration of many influences ranging from Miles Davis and Sting to Coldplay and Radiohead.
The group's full length independent CD, "A Better Suggestion," contains 10 original tracks and has been enjoying steady sales. The band is also working on completing a new extended play CD due out later this year which will contain an additional six tracks.

Lyrics

Intro (You Can't Stop the Rain)

Written By: Sammy Ray

Suddenly, you are there
Isn’t that grand
Who are we?
That we get to stand
On top of this land,
Ohh... ohh…

You can’t stop the rain and get what you want
You can’t stop the rain and get what you want
You can’t stop the rain and get what you want
You can’t stop the rain and get what you want

Everything is coming back to you
So I will sing a song that speaks the truth
Of you
Of you… ohh…

You can’t stop the rain and get what you want
You can’t stop the rain and get what you want
You can’t stop the rain and get what you want
You can’t stop the rain and get what you want

(6x) You can’t stop the rain and get what you want

You Always Win

Written By: Sammy Ray

I’ve had better days
But I’ll take this and make it more
And I’ve seen
Better ways to cope
I’ve heard you can beat
All the days you have in store
And I’ve seen
Better ways to hope

And in the end
You always win
I’m beat before I start
And in the end
You always win
You still this beating heart

I should run along
Forget the past and make things new
I don’t think I’m ready yet
So I’ll stay
Catch and ride the second wave that gets me through
You can stay and finish it

And in the end
You always win
I’m beat before I start
And in the end
You always win
You still this beating heart

(2x) Whoa… ohh... ohh… ohh…

And in the end
You always win
Today is just the same
And in the end
You always win
Today is just the same
Ohh….

And in the end
You always win
I’m beat before I start
And in the end
You always win
You still this beating heart

You still this beating heart
You still this beating heart

Breakaway

Written By: Sammy Ray

All I’m asking you
Is will you let me be me again?
And all you have to do
Is free me from the place you put me in

If I’m already here
Do you want me to go somewhere else?
Ohh…
If I cry all these tears
Do you want me to be someone else?
Ohh… ohh…

All I’m asking you
Its time to figure out where I belong
And all you want to do
Is listen to me sing the same old song
Whoa…

If I’m already here
Do you want me to go somewhere else?
Ohh…
If I cry all these tears
Do you want me to be someone else?
Ohh… ohh…

Taking me, breaking me
Into pieces
Pieces of you

Taking me, breaking me
Into pieces
Pieces of you

Pieces of you
Pieces of you

And I break away
(6x) Breakaway
Ohh…

All I’m asking you
Is will you let me be me again?
