Biography


"A great song is the wedding between the melody and the lyric. Bruce Michael Miller's 'Already Somebody' is a perfect marriage."

- John Densmore (drummer for the Doors)


Bruce Michael Miller is a singer/songwriter based in Nashville Tennessee. He has toured the world performing with such notables as Paul McCartney, Jim Messina, Kenny Loggins, Laura Branigan, The Standells, John Densmore, and many others and has been part of many original bands and projects. His songs have been featured in motion pictures, performed internationally by other artists, and he has scored movie soundtracks.

In 2012 Bruce's song "Voodoo" was an Oscar contender for best song in a motion picture. He's also had many other artists record his original songs.

He has a wry sense of humor and loves the intimacy of coffeehouses and living room concerts best of all.    

Bruce believes, “The heart is where hope and healing reside. I try to convey through my songs that there are blessings and gifts that ultimately come from accepting and embracing our own woundedness and that our pain becomes the source of compassion for ourselves and others.”

Lyrics

How Can I Help

Written By: Bruce Michael Miller

MY LIFE IS GOOD I HAVE NO WORRIES
I GOT FRIENDS IM FEELING FINE
I’VE BEEN LUCKY SO LUCKY
TO HAVE A HOME I CAN CALL MINE
BUT ON THE STREETS I SEE SCARED FACES
HOMELESS NOWHERE TO GO
CHILDREN HUNGRY IN WAR TORN PLACES
RUNNING OUT OF HOPE

HOW CAN I HELP WHAT CAN I DO
I CANNOT TURN AWAY AND PRETEND THAT I DON’T CARE
SINCE I’VE SEEN THE TRUTH
THE WORLD IS IN TROUBLE PAIN EVERYWHERE
BUT EVERY ONE OF US CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
IF WE STOP AND ASK OUSELVES
HOW CAN I HELP

WHEN I WAS YOUNG I HEARD A STORY
ABOUT A MAN WHO WALKED THROUGH FLAMES
TO SAVE A FAMILY FROM A BURNING BUILDING
AND THEY NEVER KNEW HIS NAME
HE DIDN’T SAY THAT’S NONE OF MY BUSINESS
OR BACK AWAY IN FEAR
HE JUST LISTENED TO WHAT HIS HEART SAID
AND THE VOICE WAS CRYSTAL CLEAR

CHORUS:

EVERYBODY WANTS TO BLAME EVERYBODY ELSE
BUT THE PROBLEMS OF THE WORLD
ARE NEVER GONNA CHANGE
UNTIL WE CHANGE OURSELVES (AND ASK)

CHORUS:
HOW CAN I HELP WHAT CAN I DO
CAN WE PUT AN END TO THE SUFFERING
AND MAKE THE WORLD BRAND NEW
THERE’S PAIN AND THERE’S TROUBLE EVERYWHERE
BUT EVERY ONE OF US CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
IF WE STOP AND ASK OURSELVES
HOW CAN I HELP

Drink You Back

Written By: Bruce Michael Miller, Kurt Hagan

DARLIN’, YOU KNOW THAT OLD BOTTLE
WE’VE BEEN SAVIN’ ALL THESE YEARS
FOR A SPECIAL OCCASION
I THINK THE MOMENT’S HERE
I’LL GET THE CRYSTAL GLASSES
GONNA FILL THEM WITH THE PAST
AND TOAST TO ALL THE GOOD TIMES
TONIGHT I’M GONNA DRINK YOU BACK

VERSE 2
IT’S BEEN SO LONG SINCE WE SAT HERE
HAVING A HEART TO HEART
I’VE GOT SO MUCH TO TELL YOU
I DON’T KNOW WHERE TO START
THIS WINE IS LIKE YOUR KISSES
GONE WAY TOO FAST
BUT I CAN STILL TASTE THE MEM-RIES
TONIGHT I’M GONNA DRINK YOU BACK

BRIDGE
BACK TO THIS WORLD YOU LEFT ME IN
BACK SO I SEE YOUR SMILE AGAIN
BACK TILL I FEEL YOUR PERFECT SKIN
NEXT TO MINE
TONIGHT I’M GONNA DRINK YOU BACK

SOLO ON FIRST HALF OF VERSE

END 1/2 VERSE
I’M DOIN’ ALL THE TALKIN’
YOU HAVEN’T TOUCHED YOUR GLASS
YOU’LL PROBABLY SAY I’VE-HAD TOO MUCH
(BUT) TONIGHT I’M GONNA DRINK YOU BACK

BRIDGE
BACK TO THIS WORLD YOU LEFT ME IN
BACK SO I SEE YOUR SMILE AGAIN
BACK TILL I FEEL YOUR PERFECT SKIN
NEXT TO MINE
TONIGHT I’M GONNA DRINK YOU BACK
TONIGHT I’M GONNA DRINK YOU BACK
YOU’LL PROBABLY SAY I’VE-HAD TOO MUCH
(BUT) TONIGHT I’M GONNA DRINK YOU BACK
