Britt Doehring

BandAlternativeSinger/Songwriter

My music would be classified as contemporary acoustic alternative pop. More uniquely put... its kinda like my little take on the world. My stories of life with interesting hooks and meaningful lyrics to set them free.

Biography

I'm a senior in high school and music has pretty much been my life since I was about 8 years old. I picked up a guitar when I was 13 and started writing songs within a couple weeks. I've written around 40 songs so-far in my life. My inspiration comes in many different shapes and sizes but mostly from everyday normal life. Eva Cassidy, James Taylor, Colbie Caillate, John Legend and Corinne Bailey Rae are definitly my idols. I'd have to say my youth and God-given talent are what set me apart from the norm.

Lyrics

Next To You

Written By: Britt Doehring

Verse#1
I saw you and you saw me
And in that moment found my destiny
That black sea between us stretched for a thousand miles
But not enough that I could not feel the warmth of your smile

CHORUS
I dont know you but I'd like to
Hold you in my eyes until the day runs through
And when those stars come out to shine bright and true
I'll make a wish that one morning, i'll wake up next to you

Verse#3
Do you believe in love at first sight?
I know I never did until you ran by
Your dark glasses kept your eyes in disguise
But somehow I knew that they matched the color of mine

CHORUS
I dont know you but I'd like to
Hold you in my eyes until the day runs through
And when those stars come out to shine bright and true
I'll make a wish that one morning, i'll wake up next to you

*Guitar Solo*

CHORUS
I dont know you but I'd like to
Hold you in my eyes until the day runs through
And when those stars come out to shine bright and true
I'll make a wish that one morning, i'll wake up next to you

Hey You

Written By: Britt Doehring

Verse#1
Hey you there in your shiny car across the parking lot
Hey you there with your good looking guitar
Why is it that you always make me sad when you're away
I know I've never ever felt this way

Verse#2
Please come with me and we can take a ride in your car
It doesn't really matter where we go
Just as long as I'm back in time for reality
Don't wanna know what'll happen if I don't

CHORUS
The things you say and the game that we play all seem to be surreal
The sound of your voice never seems to loose that charming appeal
So let's sit down, you can play me my song on your beauitful guitar
While I just sigh and stare

Verse#3
Bring on the bumps and bruises that may come along the way
Those aren't the kinda things that crush me
I will not ever change who I am for you
But I know you would never want me to

CHORUS
The things you say and the game that we play all seem to be surreal
The sound of your voice never seems to loose that charming appeal
So let's sit down, you can play me my song on your beauitful guitar
While I just sigh and stare
