Lyrics

Little Brass Boy

Written By: Billy Magnussen

Little brass boy,
Made up of candy and cigarettes
Sharing yourself with whatever you can get
The weight is hard to carry

Little golden girl
Beautiful and pristine
Your hand makes the difference in this world
So pick him up when he's down

Rust and weather,
We were meant to be together
Take your oil can and polish me clean
Polish me,
Polish me,
Polish me clean

Little brass boy,
You are what you came to understand
That you're not perfect by far

Rust and weather,
We were meant to be together
Take your oil can and polish me clean
Polish me,
Polish me,
Polish me clean

Shine

Written By: Justin Ettinger

Sweet morning sunrise,
I love you like an early day loves light
I'm swimmin in your eyes,
The love that you give me, oh it makes me shine
With confidence in me

Sweet afternoon fun,
I love you with the heat of a burning sun
I'm swimmin in your eyes,
The scent of you woman, oh it makes me high
With confidence in me

Oh the way we spend our time,
Oh the way we live our lives,
Oh you make the sun shine down on me

Oh the way we spend our time,
Oh the way we live our lives,
Oh you make the sun shine down on me

Sweet night time bedroom,
I love you underneath a pale white moon
I'm swimmin in your eyes,
The love that you give me, oh it makes me,

Oh the way we spend our time,
Oh the way we live our lives,
Oh you make the sun shine down on me

Brand New Day

Written By: Justin Ettinger

Can I take it slow?
Yes I wanna know.
Can I take it slow?
When the lights are shining bright,
On this brand new day

Can I take it slow?
Yes I wanna know.
Can I take it slow?
When the lights are shining bright,
On this brand new day

Its a brand new day,
I wipe those tears off my face,
Let the sunshine fill my space,
With the light of a brand new day.

Look there's somethin' breaking through,
I pick myself up and start anew.
And its ok 'cause I have faith,
In the light of a brand new day

Yesterday,
Is a distant memory,
I pick myself up and I'll be free,
With the light of a brand new day

Look there's somethin' breaking through,
I pick myself up and start anew.
And its ok 'cause I have faith,
In the light of a brand new day

Look there's somethin' breaking through,
I pick myself up and start anew.
And its ok 'cause I have faith,
In the light of a brand new day
