***Reviews and comments***

"Not only did the Truman Brothers put on a highly entertaining performance, they were a hit off stage as well. Signing autographs, talking and dancing with fans created a great atmosphere before and after the show. Punctual and prepared, we really enjoyed having them."

Riley Mykleburst, SEB Director, Washington State University - Pullman, WA

"Truman Brothers were really great! This was the first event like this we have held in our new Campus Center and it seemed to work really well. The brothers were so easy to work with and were very talented. They are very entertaining and supremely talented. The response from the students was very positive and several bought CDs, so I think they were pleased too. They were really nice and low maintenance and took some requests, etc. Two great performers!"

Roy Lee Wigginton II, Student Life Coordinator, Centre College - Danville, KY

"Chad and Ben were fantastic, they really put on a good show. They were very interactive with our students, and everyone in attendance had a great time. In fact several of our students were wondering aloud if we could bring them back sometime, and we would love to have them! This duo has a bright future ahead of them."

Chris Haab, Graduate Student for Campus Programming, Rockford College - Rockford, IL

Lyrics

I Want You There

Written By: Ben Truman

Can you show me a time
When days aren’t so slow and my love isn’t blind?
When tomorrow is today
Oh c’mon show me the way
To another time and place
To the day you open up that door and I stare into your face

Can you tell me your name?
At least something to sing, while I stand in the rain
Awaiting better days
Oh c’mon tell me your name, be it first or last
Something to hold on to, to help the time move past
You know I’ll wait (x 4)

CHORUS:
Before I open up my eyes to see another day
Before I go to see the world and take that plane
Before I get up on my feet to chase that dream
I want you there with me
I want you there with me
Cuz without you I’m gonna go nowhere

Can you sing me that song?
The one I’ll finally write when you come along
Without an open end
Tell me how does it begin
Is it fast or slow
Babe until I see you there, I guess we’ll never know
You know I’ll wait (x 4)

CHORUS:
Before I open up my eyes to see another day
Before I go to see the world and take that plane
Before I get up on my feet to chase that dream
I want you there with me
I want you there with me
Cuz dreaming is a thing that only lovers do
So babe I’ll sit here with my dreams and wait for you
And I’m prepared for however long it may be
I want you there with me
I want you there with me
Cuz without you I’m gonna go nowhere

Before I open up my eyes to see another day
Before I go to see the world and take that plane
Before I get up on my feet to chase that dream
I want you there with me
I want you there with me
Cuz dreaming is a thing that only lovers do
So babe I’ll sit here with my dreams and wait for you
And I’m not willing to waste one more memory
I want you there with me
I want you there with me

In My Head

Written By: Ben Truman/Chad Truman

New Year's Eve
Almost midnight
And you're not here for me to hold
3-2-1
And it's over
And who you're kissing I don't know

CHORUS:
But I'll put in my head
That maybe instead
You're standing there lonely wondering if I'm lonely too
And I'll put in my heart
That maybe not far from now
Someday you'll love me
And I'm resolute
I'm making my move

New Year's morn
The sun is shining
Another day to think it through
And here's to hoping
That where you're sleeping
You know who's lying next to you

CHORUS:
But I'll put in my head
That maybe instead
You're lying there lonely oh with dreams of me and you
And I'll put in my heart
That maybe not far from now
Someday you'll love me
And I'm resolute
I'm making my move

And everybody knows that I just can't walk away
No, not from you, not today
And I'll be making my plans
And be eyeing my chance, yeah
But until then

CHORUS:
I'll put in my head
That maybe instead
You're singing there lonely oh just singing like a fool
And I'll put in my heart
That maybe not far from now
Someday you'll love me
And I'm resolute
I'm making my move

New Year's morn
The sun is shining
It's another day to think it through


Get Lost

Written By: Ben Truman/Chad Truman

I'm calling you out
I saw you looking and I recognized the smile in your eyes
You're dancing around
The fact that you’re feeling something stronger, but you’re trying to hide
And girl I know it's scary
Hey you know I'm scared too
But I'm calling you out
And don't you roll your eyes

Girl you gotta let go
Girl you gotta free fall
Girl you gotta get lost
Lost, lost in love
You gotta take time
To make sure they can't find you
Because you are so lost in love
Get lost, get lost

And I've heard them say
There’s pain left over cuz you’ve had your heart broken before
You know, I've felt that way
But trust me it’s a feeling worth feeling if you want something more
And the want for love is what pulls you
But the fear of tears is the very thing that makes you cry
Don’t let it get you this time

Girl you gotta let go
Girl you gotta free fall
Girl you gotta get lost
Lost, lost in love
You gotta take time
To make sure they can't find you
Because you are so lost in love
Baby let down your guard
Baby open your heart
And girl get lost
Get lost

Don’t let it hold you
Don’t let it pass you by
Just take my hand, we’ll run away

CHORUS

Come On Down to Nashville

Written By: Benjamin Truman,Chad Truman,Raquel Warchol

Hello baby
Where you lately?
Are you sick and tired of all the roads that you’ve been taking?
If you need a new point of view
I know just what you need to do
Take a drive to (615), you know it’s calling you
Calling you…

To kick it back, front porch in your rocking chair
Or Robert’s World, some band will be rocking there
Everyone can find their kind of cowboy
Sitting on the river bank, fishing after midnight
Or in the rain, dance under the city lights
In this town, it’s slower and it’s faster
Come on, come on, come on down to Nashville

A train is rolling
From California
Crossing over sunny deserts in Arizona
It’s only destination
A permanent vacation
Just you and me, in Tennessee
That’s what I’m saying, you’ll be staying
When we..

Kick it back, front porch in your rocking chair
Or Robert’s World, some band will be rocking there
Everyone can find their kind of cowboy
Sitting on the river bank, fishing after midnight
Or in the rain, dance under the city lights
In this town, it’s slower and it’s faster
Come on, come on, come on down to Nashville

Hey Baby
You don’t believe me
You got a problem that won’t go away
Come let ‘em go here down on Broadway
Are you ready?

Kick it back, front porch in your rocking chair
Or Robert’s World, some band will be rocking there
Everyone can find their kind of cowboy
Sitting on the river bank, fishing after midnight
Or in the rain, dance under the city lights
In this town, it’s slower and it’s faster
Come on, come on, come on down to Nashville

Make It So

Written By: Benjamin Truman,Chad Truman,Raquel Warchol

This ain’t a fairytale where everything lasts
It's not Halloween so take off the mask
There’s something that I just need to ask you now

It’s a reality that we can’t escape
Can’t just fly away with your cape
I hope this isn’t my last mistake
But I gotta know, I gotta know

Chorus:
If you really wanna stay
Show me that you feel that way
If you really wanna go
Then make it so

You reach to lock your hands with mine
But this time you’re not holding as tight
I’m tired of reading the signs, done with the games

If we don’t fight til the final round
Might as well cut our losses now
The future that I want is with you
But you gotta choose, oh you gotta choose

Chorus:
If you really wanna stay
Show me that you feel that way
If you really wanna go
Then make it so

If you really wanna stay
Show me that you feel that way
Whether it is yes or no
Just make it so

Momentum of Love

Written By: Benjamin Truman,Chad Truman,Raquel Warchol

It started with a step
A step on an empty dance floor hand in hand
Wasn't looking for love but I just couldn't stand on the side
Turned into a kiss
A kiss but what's gonna happen after this?
Scared of a broken heart but I can't resist your lips on mine

Oooo
Is this the thing they’ve been telling me
Am I falling for us?
Oooo
Tell me that I’m not the only one
Oooh
Caught up in the momentum of love

Short walk home
Wishing that it was a hundred mile road
Wearing your sweater but I'm not even cold
Just wanna be close
To your touch
Baby, baby, baby you're all I want
As much as I get, I just can’t get enough
Of you

Oooo
Is this the thing they’ve been telling me
Am I falling for us?
Oooo
Tell me that I’m not the only one
Ooooh
Caught up in the momentum of love

Down on a knee
Down on a knee just scared as I could be
Know how you feel but I’m still trembling
And I close my eyes

Oooo
Girl, it’s the thing they’ve been telling me
I’ve fallen for us
Oooo
Tell me that I’m not the only one
Who wants to spend every single night
Search the world inside your eyes
Oh for the rest of our lives

Ooooh
Caught up in the momentum of love
