Lyrics

Heavy Heart

Written By: Jill Brzezicki

Lightning blew in on a sunny day.
The force came right out of the ground.
Knocked me over with your nighttime ways.
Led me there without a sound.

I couldn’t give you what you needed.
Tried so hard to ease the pain.
Thought my laughter would bring solace.
Thought my sun could dry your rain.
There’s a heavy heart between us.
The moon is still the same.

Good intentions carried way too long.
We needed time to work things out.
Life grew angry on a heavy sigh.
Started looking to get out.

I couldn’t give you what you needed.
Tried hard to ease the pain.
Thought my laughter would bring solace.
Thought my sun could dry your rain.
There’s a heavy heart between us.
Decisions to be made.
There’s a heavy heart between us.
The moon is all the same.

So we learn from the leaves.
Cause they know when to fall.
Descending down unto the earth below.
Ahh the newness of it all.

You couldn’t give me what I needed.
You tried hard to ease the pain.
Thought your laughter would bring solace.
Thought your sun could dry my rain.
There’s a heavy heart between us.
Oh there’s a heavy heart between us.
There’s a heavy heart between us.
There's a heavy heart between us.
The moon is still the same.

Dreamer

Written By: Jill Brzezicki

I’m a dreamer I live in a dream
I know things ain’t really what they seem.
I’m a dreamer I live in a dream
I know things ain’t what they seem.
I know things ain’t really what they seem.

Sit beside me let me tell you all I know
and you decide if it is real.
Sit beside me let me tell you all I know,
you decide, if it is real.
Yes I know, but you see if it’s real.

Turn the T.V. on and war is all I see
and I know things are what they seem.
I Turn the T.V. on and war its all I see
and I know things, are what they seem.
Yeah I know things, are what they seem.

Bombs dropping on, people dying now.
Rivers of blood flowing down the streets.

So I’m a dreamer and I live there in my dream.
I know things, ain’t what they seem.

The Horizon

Written By: Jill Brzezicki

I’m just sitting here being me.
Not exactly sure what that means.
Learning a little everyday.
Getting closer to the thoughts I’ve pushed away.

And I don’t mind, being alone, sometimes.
And I know, there’s better things.
On the horizon, yeah.
On the horizon.

Lost my girl, my job, my heart.
Nothing left to do but make a new start.
Reinvent my mighty wheel.
Turning through these days with nerves of steel.

And I don’t mind, being alone, sometimes.
And I know, there’s better things.
I don’t mind, being alone, sometimes.
Cause I know, I know, there’s better things.
On the horizon.
On the horizon.

They say they’ll keep me in their prayers.
That love will conquer all it’s written everywhere.
So I’m open yet again, feel the fear subside
I don a sexy grin.

And I don’t mind, being alone, sometimes.
And I know, there’s better things.
I don’t mind, being alone, sometimes.
Cause I know, I know, there’s better things.
On the horizon.
On the horizon.

So Many Things

Written By: Jill Brzezicki

Sometimes I wonder which direction my life is gonna go.
Sometimes I whisper into the light of my soul.

So many things, I wanna do.
So many things, I wanna do.

Listening to the water dripping down on my basement floor.
Feeling its power like I’ve never ever felt it before.
Wish I could sail away on a silent sea.
No one to worry and no one to wonder about me.
But there’d be,

So many things, I'd wanna do.
So many things, I wanna do.
So many things, so many things, so many things.
I wanna do.

Whispering words don’t help anybody’s cause.
Lessons come when we live at all cost, all cost, all cost.

Everyday I’m grateful when I wake and take a breath.
There’s only so much time we get here in this nest.
My wonder sometimes wanders but I get it back on track.
Worry about what I got baby not what I lack.

And there’ll be, So many things, I wanna do.
So many things, I wanna do.
So many things, so many things, so many things.
I wanna do.
I wanna do.
I wanna do do do do do do do do do do do
do do do do do do do do do do do.

Addiction

Written By: Jill Brzezicki

When I wake up in the morning.
Coffee’s on my mind.
Some may call this an addiction.
Me I call it my life.

In the middle of the evening.
Mind wanders to and fro.
Looking for some kind of inspiration.
Looking for somewhere to grow.

And I’m tired of feeling like I need you.
Brings me down, so deep below.
Yeah I’m tired of feeling like I need you so I have to.
Let you go.

Time keeps ticking on the wall now.
Counting down these endless days.
That I try to disengage you.
Needles helping on the way.

But you’ve held me tight for years now.
And you don’t wanna let me go.
Ah you’ve held me tight for years now.
You don’t wanna let me know.

And I’m tired of feeling like I need you.
Brings me down, so deep below.
Yeah I’m tired of feeling like I need you so I have to.
I gotta let you go.

Maybe someday in the future.
I’ll forget I had this life.
Held me down like a dying man and
now I’ve got all this time.

Cause I was tired of feeling like I needed you.
Brought me down, so deep below.
Yeah I was tired of feeling like I needed you so I had to.
I had to let you go.
I had to let you go.
