Lyrics

Brick By Brick

Written By: Daveed Meiron

Intro: Do do – do, do do, do do do do - do do do do – do , Do do do do do do do do do do - do x 2

Looking at the people, looking at the faces,
Looking at expressions that say “I don’t know where I’m going…
I don’t know where I’m going.”

Every time you listen to the news for words of candor,
You end up feeling cheated and abused.
The media prioritize agendas just to sell you
Buy this you’re a winner you can’t lose.

Brick by brick, break the cell
That keeps you in the company of strangers.
Choose to choose, don’t pick what’s left,
Give a breath of truth to glowing embers.

(Do do…)

Looking at the people, looking at the faces,
Looking at expressions that say I don’t know where I’m going…
I don’t know where I’m going.

Start a new day like the other with a promise to yourself;
I know how to get to where I’m needing.
Got my special bag of tools I think that I have learned to use
Instead of building dreams, I sit there bleeding.

Brick by brick, break the cell
That keeps you in the company of strangers
Choose to choose, don’t pick what’s left
Give a breath of truth to glowing embers.

Brick by brick {I know you can do it}
Brick by brick {this wall is coming down}
Brick by brick {get your trumpet out and blow it}
Brick by brick {turn your life around}

Brick by brick x3
This wall is coming down
Brick by brick… (did you get that?)

The One

Written By: Daveed Meiron

I always knew, I believed in magic.
It was always you, though we never met.
I waited so long, waited for that feeling.
Touching love not finding, the other side of me.

Life has smiled upon me with treasures of good friends.
My story’s just beginning, about a love that has no end.

When I looked into your eyes,
I thought that I’d go swimming.
In an ocean of our love and I could never drown.
I could pick you up, if you are feeling weary.
And you make me strong, by being in my life.

It’s not easy to trust in love, completely and wholly.
Now that I’ve found you love, my heart love is yours only.

So many times I’ve walked away,
Knowing things had just begun.
Finally I’m here to stay, you are the one.
You are the one x 3

In My Heart

Written By: Daveed Meiron

How can I find my piece of mind?
Searching for answers in places I left far behind.
I’m rearranging, my feelings are changing
The things that I held so high are no longer engaging.

Chorus:
In my heart, I know I’ll find the space I need for love.
A love not blind. x 2

A look in the mirror can be so deceiving,
A reflection of who I am and the things I believe in.
Your look, your warm touch, you keep me breathing.
The truth of the love you give is my reason for living.

Chorus x 2

Bridge:
But when I’m angry, confused, unsure,
You remember that my heart is pure
-----------
When it ain’t easy you embrace me.
To what I’m ailing you’re the cure.

(Instrumental)

Chorus x 2

You Belong To Me

Written By: Pee Wee King / Chilton Price / Redd Stewart

See the pyramids along the Nile
Watch the sunrise on a tropic isle
Just remember darlin' all the while
You belong to me

See the market place in Old Algiers
Send me photographs and souvenirs
Just remember when a dream appears
You belong to me

I'll be so alone without you
Maybe you'll be lonesome too, and blue

Fly the ocean in a silver plane
See the jungle when it's wet with rain
Just remember 'til you're home again
You belong to me

I'm gonna be so alone without you
And I'm hopin maybe you'll be lonesome, too, and blue

Fly that ocean in a silver plane
See the jungle when it's wet with rain
Just remember till you're home again
You belong to me

Barren Heart

Written By: Daveed Meiron

I’m returning to the heartland to visit my hometown.
It’s 4:30 in the morning and the drizzle’s coming down.
I can smell the woods along the road leading to my daddy’s farm.
Where life began with country lovin, I never knew no harm.

It was two months after high school I had signed up for the corps
To serve my country, see the world, live on the edge, and learn some more.
I met her the week I had to go I had given her my heart
The first time we were lovers, we made a vow we’d never part.

Chorus
Now I’m back, to go the distance
But when we met I felt all alone
It’s her barren eyes
That looked right through me
And could not see
That our love would grow
It’s her barren heart
That left me winded
Like a rider thrown out
Of life’s rodeo

All the places I had traveled to - All the beauty I have seen.
I thought of you beside me - To satisfy my dream
I wrote you about the people - The places and my love
I thought to share my life with you - Was a gift from up above.
(Chorus)

Fever

Written By: John Davenport/Eddie Cooley

(Sing it- like you feel it)
Never know how much I love you, never know how much I care
When you put your arms around me, I get a feeling that's is hard to bear
You give me fever with your kisses, fever when you hold me tight
Fever - in the morning, fever all through the night.

Sun lights up the daytime, moon lights up the night
I light up when you call my name, and I know you’re gonna treat me right
You give me fever - when you kiss me, fever when you hold me tight (hold you tight)
Fever - in the morning, fever all through the night.

Everybody's got the fever, that is something you all know
Fever isn't such a new thing, fever started long ago.

Romeo loved Juliet, Juliet she felt the same
When he put his arms around her, he said "Julie baby you're my flame"
Thou givest fever, when we kisseth, fever with thy flaming youth
Fever (FEVER) - I'm afire, fever yea I burn forsooth.

Listen to me baby, hear every word I say- No one can love you the way I do - cause they don’t know how to love you my way. –You give me Fever – when you kiss me, fever when you hold me tight (hold you tight) Fever - in the morning, fever all through the night.

-----SOLO------ (haa, hoo hoo Fever…)

Now you've listened to my story, here's the point I have made
Chicks were born to give you fever, be it Fahrenheit or Centigrade
They give you fever - when you kiss them, fever if you live and learn
Fever - till you sizzle, But what a lovely way to burn.
What a lovely way to burn.
What a lovely way to burn.
I said….What a lovely way to burn. (I’m afire ooo)
Mmmmm …BURN! (It’s hot…)

Take My Hand

Written By: Daveed Meiron

In a land so divided and cold
I have started a fire
Let it spread from the young to the old
Let it lift us all higher

Chorus: Take my hand
We’ll fly together to another land
We’ll plant the seeds of love and understand
The time has come - I will not hide
I need you to be by my side

We are taught to put on a mask
And pretend to fit in.
Never letting the passion come out
They have labeled it sin

Chorus: Take my hand…

(instrumental)

Bridge: Open your eyes- see how you feel
Erase all the lies – embrace what is real
Don’t let go
The heat will grow
It’s the juice of life
Let it flow

Chorus x 2 to ending
