HOME AGAIN (2020)
Lyrics by Nina Bradlin

1. MOON SHINE DOWNTHE MOON SHINES DOWN ON ALL CREATION
THE MOON SHINES DOWN ON MY DESOLATION
A NEW MOON HAS COME, A NEW MOON HAS GONE
MOON SHINE DOWN ON MY DESPERATION

YOU PAINTED ME THE INFINITY SIGN
WE WERE TO BE UNTIL THE END OF TIME
BUT THE ELEMENTS WASHED AND BURNED IT AWAY
NO MORE GOLD, JUST TRACES OF RED AND GREY

THE MOON SHINES DOWN ON ALL CREATION
THE MOON SHINES DOWN ON MY DESOLATION
A NEW MOON HAS COME, A NEW MOON HAS GONE
MOON SHINE DOWN ON MY DESPERATION

ETERNITY IS THE SUM OF EACH STEP THAT I TAKE
INSTEAD OF THE PROMISES WE’D MAKE
A FADED SIGN, THE END OF A CHAPTER
NOW I WALK ALONE INTO DISASTER

COME TO ME NOW, PUT AN END TO MY SORROW
TELL ME THERE IS HOPE FOR TOMORROW
NO MORE LONELINESS, LONGING AND PAIN
NO WAITING BY YOUR DOOR IN VAIN

THE MOON SHINES DOWN ON ALL CREATION
THE MOON SHINES DOWN ON MY DESOLATION
A NEW MOON HAS COME, A NEW MOON HAS GONEMOON SHINE DOWN ON MY DESPERATION


2. UNCLE HARRY WAS A LADIES MAN

UNCLE HARRY WAS A LADIES MAN
UNCLE HARRY WAS A DAPPER DAN
BEST PIANO MAN DETROIT EVER HAD
UNCLE HARRY WAS A LADIES MAN

NOW YOU WOULD GO DOWN WOODWARD AVENUE
HARRY AND LOUIE STANDIN’ THERE, I TELL YOU IT’S TRUE
SUPERFLY SUITS BRIGHTER THAN SHAFT
BRIMS SO WIDE AND GREEN DOLLAR STACKS

UNCLE HARRY WAS A LADIES MAN
UNCLE HARRY WAS A DAPPER DAN
BEST PIANO MAN DETROIT EVER HAD
UNCLE HARRY WAS A LADIES MAN

STRUTTIN’ WITH LA DIVINA ON HIS ARM
FUR COAT KEEPIN’ HIS DIVA WARM
BELLY FULL OF HOT CHICKEN SOUP
KEEP YOUR EYE OFF HIS CHICKEN COUP

UNCLE HARRY WAS A LADIES MAN
UNCLE HARRY WAS A DAPPER DAN
BEST PIANO MAN DETROIT EVER HAD
UNCLE HARRY WAS A LADIES MAN

NOW ONE DAY SHE THREW
THAT FUR COAT ON THE GROUND
LEFT MOTOWN WITHOUT A SOUND
FAT WALLET ON HER HIP
WHISTLED AND AWAY SHE SKIPS

UNCLE HARRY DIED WITHOUT A CENT
UNCLE HARRY DIED A NOBLE GENT
DIED SO POOR, BUT NOT IN SHAME
DIED IN THE DETROIT HALL OF FAME

UNCLE HARRY WAS A LADIES MAN
UNCLE HARRY WAS A DAPPER DAN
BEST PIANO MAN DETROIT EVER HAD
UNCLE HARRY WAS A LADIES MAN

UNCLE HARRY WAS A LADIES MAN
UNCLE HARRY WAS A DAPPER DAN
BEST PIANO MAN DETROIT EVER HAD
UNCLE HARRY WAS A LADIES MAN
OH, HE LIKED THOSE LADIES


3. BROKEN HEARTS

SKELETONS WALKING INSIDE FLESH
LOOKING FOR THE GREATER PURPOSE
DRAWING ON THE POOL OF RULES
OF SAFETY NETS, OF EXPECTATIONS
NO LONGER READY TO LIVE LIKE A ZOMBIE
DRUNKEN STUPOR, KILLING EMOTIONS

GIVE ME A WORLD WITHOUT BROKEN HEARTS
WHERE I DON’T JERK AWAKE WITH A START
GIVE ME A WORLD WITHOUT BROKEN HEARTS
WHERE THE BED IS WARM AND HEARTS ARE WHOLE

PROMISES BROKEN, CRUSHING ME
I’M SUFFOCATING, WILTING, FADING
FIRES OF DESPERATE LONGING,
DREAMING OF A CHANGE
DROWNING IN A SEA OF REGRET, OF PAIN, OF CRAVING
STIFLED IN AN OLD EMPTY HEART

GIVE ME A WORLD WITHOUT BROKEN HEARTS
WHERE I DON’T JERK AWAKE WITH A START
GIVE ME A WORLD WITHOUT BROKEN HEARTS
WHERE THE BED IS WARM AND HEARTS ARE WHOLE

GIVE ME A WORLD WITHOUT BROKEN HEARTS
WHERE I DON’T JERK AWAKE WITH A START
GIVE ME A WORLD WITHOUT BROKEN HEARTS
WHERE THE BED IS WARM AND HEARTS ARE WHOLE

GIVE ME A WORLD WITHOUT BROKEN HEARTS
WHERE I DON’T JERK AWAKE WITH A START
GIVE ME A WORLD WITHOUT BROKEN HEARTS
WHERE THE BED IS WARM AND HEARTS ARE WHOLE
....AND HEARTS ARE WHOLE.


4. A NEW DAY


DREAM OF A WARM BED
LOVE IN YOUR HEART AND HEAD
IN A WORLD WHERE
PEOPLE ARE NOT ALONE

DRINK IN THE STARS
DOWN A HIGHWAY FULL OF CARS
BREATHE IN THE SKY
STOP ASKING WHY

IT’S A NEW DAY
IT’S A NEW LIFE
YOU JUST PUSH PLAY
AND IT FEELS RIGHT
IT’S A NEW DAY
IT’S A NEW LIFE
AND IT STARTS TODAY
AND IT STARTS TONIGHT

PUSH ASIDE THE BAD STUFF
THAT DARKENS YOUR DAY
BLOCK OUT THE INSULTS
YOU HEARD ALONG THE WAY

DRINK IN THE STARS
DOWN A HIGHWAY FULL OF CARS
BREATHE IN THE SKY
STOP ASKING WHY

IT’S A NEW DAY
IT’S A NEW LIFE
YOU JUST PUSH PLAY
AND IT FEELS RIGHT
IT’S A NEW DAY
IT’S A NEW LIFE
AND IT STARTS TODAY
IT STARTS TONIGHT

THE SUN IS HERE

5. FALL IN LOVE
DON’T MAKE ME FALL IN LOVE
FALL IN LOVE AGAIN
I CAN’T COUNT THE TEARS
THE TEARS THAT I’VE WEPT
EVER SINCE THE DAY WE MET
WHENEVER WE SAY NO REGRETS
THERE COMES AN IF AND A WHEN
DON’T MAKE ME FALL IN LOVE AGAIN

DON’T MAKE ME FALL BACK IN
FALL BACK IN YOUR SNARE
THE LOVE WE HAD WAS GOOD,
SO VERY GOOD AND RARE
WE’D PRETEND WE DIDN’T CARE
LET’S CALL IT A FRIENDS’ AFFAIR
LET’S MAKE PEACE, LET’S PRETEND
DON’T MAKE ME FALL IN LOVE AGAIN

IF I HAD A DIME FOR EACH DARK NIGHT
I SAT ALONE WITH YOU ON MY MIND
I COULD HAVE COUNTED A MILLION STARS
AND PUT PENNIES IN A JAR
FOR EACH TIME YOU WENT TOO FAR
ON MY HEART, ANOTHER SCAR

DON’T MAKE ME FALL IN LOVE
FALL IN LOVE AGAIN
IF I SHOULD DIE BEFORE I WAKE
I PRAY FOR YOU MY SOUL TO TAKE
IF I SHOULD DIE BEFORE WE KISS
INSTEAD I BEG FOR ONE LAST TRYST
DON’T MAKE ME FALL IN LOVE
DON’T MAKE ME FALL IN LOVE AGAIN

DON’T MAKE ME FALL
DON’T MAKE ME FALL IN LOVE
AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN
DON’T MAKE ME FALL IN LOVE

6. PARASITE
REAL LIFE ZOMBIE IN MY BED
IN MY HEART IN MY HEAD
I’LL LOVE YOU TIL I’M DEAD
REAL LIFE ZOMBIE IN MY BED

REAL LIFE ZOMBIE MAKES ME DROWN
THEN CREEPS OUT WITHOUT A SOUND
I’LL LOVE YOU TIL I’M DEAD
REAL LIFE ZOMBIE IN MY BED

PARASITE
YOU MAKE ME FEEL ALL RIGHT
WOULD BE INSANE
WITHOUT THE BRAIN DRAIN

REAL LIFE ZOMBIE MAKES ME CLIMB
HOLES IN MY HEAD BEFORE MY TIME
I’LL LOVE YOU TIL I’M DEAD
REAL LIFE ZOMBIE IN MY BED

REAL LIFE ZOMBIE GOT MY TONGUE
MAKES ME THINK I GOT ANOTHER ONE
I’LL LOVE YOU TIL I’M DEAD
REAL LIFE ZOMBIE IN MY BED

PARASITE
YOU MAKE ME FEEL ALL RIGHT
WOULD BE INSANE
WITHOUT THE BRAIN DRAIN

PARASITE
YOU MAKE ME FEEL ALL RIGHT
WOULD BE INSANE
WITHOUT THE BRAIN DRAIN

REAL LIFE ZOMBIE IN MY BED
IN MY HEART IN MY HEAD

REAL LIFE ZOMBIE IN MY BED
IN MY HEART IN MY HEAD
I’LL LOVE YOU TIL I’M DEAD
REAL LIFE ZOMBIE IN MY BED

PARASITE
YOU MAKE ME FEEL ALL RIGHT
WOULD BE INSANE
WITHOUT THE BRAIN DRAIN

PARASITE
YOU MAKE ME FEEL ALL RIGHT
WOULD BE INSANE
WITHOUT THE BRAIN DRAIN

PARASITE
YOU MAKE ME FEEL ALL RIGHT
WOULD BE INSANE
WITHOUT THE BRAIN DRAIN

7. BABY, I ALMOST DIED

I WAS LIVING IN THE MOMENT
SITTING BY YOUR SIDE
I WAS LIVING IN YOUR MOMENT
SITTING BY YOUR SIDE
FLYING UP THE HILL
AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT
I WAS LIVING IN THE MOMENT
BUT BABY, I ALMOST DIED
BABY, I ALMOST DIED
BABY, I ALMOST DIED

LIVING A VIRTUAL LIFE
RACING AT THE SPEED OF A SNAIL
EARPHONES DROWN OUT THE STRIFE
THE FEAR THAT I MIGHT FAIL

I WAS LIVING IN THE MOMENT
SITTING BY YOUR SIDE
I WAS LIVING IN YOUR MOMENT
SITTING BY YOUR SIDE
FLYING UP THE HILL
AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT
I WAS LIVING IN THE MOMENT
BUT BABY, I ALMOST DIED
BABY, I ALMOST DIED
BABY, I ALMOST DIED

CARPE DIEM IS MY MOTTO
FIVE MINUTES IN A DAY
THE REST OF THE TIME
I’M WASTING AWAY

I WAS LIVING IN THE MOMENT
SITTING BY YOUR SIDE
I WAS LIVING IN YOUR MOMENT
SITTING BY YOUR SIDE
FLYING UP THE HILL
AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT
I WAS LIVING IN THE MOMENT
BUT BABY, I ALMOST DIED
BABY, I ALMOST DIED
BABY, I ALMOST DIED

IF I RECORD NOW
AND SHARE IT WITH MY FRIENDS
WILL THEY FEEL MORE ALIVE
TIL THE STREAMING ENDS

I WAS LIVING IN THE MOMENT
SITTING BY YOUR SIDE
I WAS LIVING IN YOUR MOMENT
SITTING BY YOUR SIDE
FLYING UP THE HILL
AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT
I WAS LIVING IN THE MOMENT
BUT BABY, I ALMOST DIED
BABY, I ALMOST DIED
BABY, I ALMOST DIED

8. TIME
TIME IS SLIPPING THROUGH MY FINGERS...
DREAMS GO BY IN A SECOND
EVEN IF THEY SEEM AN HOUR
RUNNING DOWN AN ENDLESS PLATFORM
CLIMBING UP THE HIGHEST TOWER

CHANCES COME AND PEOPLE GO
SMILES FADE IN PANTING BREATH
RUNNING TO BEAT THE CLOCK
WISHING I COULD MAKE TIME STOP

TIME IS SLIPPING THROUGH MY FINGERS...

9. HOME AGAIN
LEFT HOME WHEN I WAS YOUNG
CROSSED AN OCEAN, LEARNED ANOTHER TONGUE
EVERYTHING WAS NEW AND STRANGE
I FELT I HAD TO CHANGE

BUT NOW...I’M HOME AGAIN, HOME AGAIN
HERE AND THERE AND EVERYWHERE
I’M HOME, HOME AGAIN
I’M HOME AGAIN, HOME AGAIN
AND IT FEELS SO GOOD TO BE HOME AGAIN
I’M HOME, HOME AGAIN

HAD CHILDREN OF MY OWN
SPROUTED ROOTS, I HAD GROWN
A FAIRY TALE, HOW I LOVED YOU
THEN ONE DAY OUR LOVE WAS THROUGH

BACK AT SEA, NOW DON’T YOU DROWN
STAND UP TALL, PUT YOUR FEET ON THE GROUND
DON’T KNOW WHICH WAY TO FACE
ARE YOU AT HOME IN EITHER PLACE?

HOME AGAIN, HOME AGAIN
WOULD FEEL SO GOOD TO GO HOME AGAIN
HOME, HOME AGAIN

I DECIDED WHO I SHOULD BE
TO LIVE MY LIFE WITH DIGNITY
AND I BECAME MY OWN FRIEND
AND NOW HOME IS HOME AGAIN

I’M HOME AGAIN, HOME AGAIN
HERE AND THERE AND EVERYWHERE
I’M HOME, HOME AGAIN
I’M HOME AGAIN, HOME AGAIN
AND IT FEELS SO GOOD TO BE HOME AGAIN
I’M HOME, HOME AGAIN

I’M HOME AGAIN, HOME AGAIN
HERE AND THERE AND EVERYWHERE
I’M HOME, HOME AGAIN
I’M HOME AGAIN, HOME AGAIN
AND IT FEELS SO GOOD TO BE HOME AGAIN
I’M HOME, HOME AGAIN



RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE (2013)
Lyrics by Nina Bradlin





1. MARTHA


Martha was his first love, perched up on his shoulder,
When the going got tough, her top feathers gone
Her life was rough, but she had a friendly shoulder
she could fly on.
Martha was his first love Other birds live in cages, exposed to workers' rages,
Suspended above a boiling vat, some eat the skin
But some don't chew the fat,
But we all love that down home, down home
Deep fried pain, life ends in a bucket of limbs
Coated in down home Southern comfort
And served by the Colonel himself
Martha was his first love
When they fed him Martha
they didn't mention her name
But he knew all the same
And his insides burned and his stomach churned
And on the at day he swore, he swore
His friends, he would eat no more
Martha was his first love
But as he grew older, he met a brown eyed girl
Who liked to rest her sweet head on his shoulder
But Martha was his first love.


2. SHE'S THE ONE


Her hair is red, her lips red, too
Her skin is perfect and her eyes are blue
Legs so long, curves curve right
Her skirt is short and her blouse is tight
She's the one who'll make him come undone
Be so coy, steal away my boy
She's the one who'll make him come undone
Be so coy, steal away my boy
I see him glance at the hair, the lips
The skirt, blouse and the hips
Her blue eyes flash, her hair's a flame
She smiles at him, and he'll never be the same
She's the one who'll make him come undone
Be so coy, steal away my boy
She's the one who'll make him come undone
Be so coy, steal away my boy



3. RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE


He says, come back in and jam with us,
There's magic in the midnight hour
She smiles and I can't make a move,
So take my arm and steal my shoes
Taxi's here, just let it wait
Cause I'm in an ecstatic state
Pluck my strings, make my heart sing
Work the bass, strum the guitar
I just wanna be right where you are
Bring it on, bring it on
I wanna hear that magic sound
Bring it on, bring it on
I wanna hear that magic sound
Let time stand still
Wanna stay just one more hour
There's magic in the midnight hour
Baby I'll be good to you
Just as soon as this jam is through
I can't leave now, you see
I swear something is happening to me
Pluck my strings, make my heart sing
Work the bass, strum the guitar
I just wanna be right where you are
Bring it on, bring it on
I wanna hear that magic sound
Bring it on, bring it on
I wanna hear that magic sound
Let time stand still


4. LA PREMIERE NUIT


La première nuit, quand tu m'as vue
Tu as dit "Botticelli", serré dans la douche
On était à deux, on était tellement nerveux
Nous deux
Mais, c'était parfait
Sur le bateau pour Evian
Tu t'étais enragé
Cette vieille femme méchante
Qui ne voulait pas de filles
Dans cette petite chambre louée
Le premier jour avant notre retour
Je voyais nos enfants à la plage
Un pour toi, un pour moi
Sur le bateau pour Evian
Et sur le bateau pour Evian
Tu t'étais enragé
Cette vieille femme méchante
Qui ne voulait pas de filles
Dans cette petite chambre louée
Sur le bateau pour Evian
Je connaissais ton nom.
Je t'avais dit vous, quand je t'ai vu
Dans la rue
Sur le bateau quittant Evian
Je savais, je savais
Que pour moi
C'était toi


5. DAYDREAMING


Daydreaming is sweeter than wine
A conflict of interests in passing my time
Thinking of words that could have changed your mind
And daydreaming is sweeter than wine
A good wine needs to age, to reach the desired stage
Our love shall be like an old bordeaux
Greater than any vintage this world has ever known
Daydreaming is sweeter than wine
A conflict of interests in passing my time
Thinking of words that would have changed your mind
And daydreaming is sweeter than wine
You told me tomorrow
You told me to wait
Time felt borrowed
I'd met you too late
Some loves they sour with time
Some drink the cheapest wine
Our love was of the finest kind
And the memory of you
Intoxicates my mind
Daydreaming is sweeter than wine
A conflict of interests in passing my time
Thinking of words that would have changed your mind
And daydreaming is sweeter than wine


6. REJECTED SECRETS


I was a fool to let you go
I was a fool to want you so
No matter how I think of you
I was a fool, that much is true
I looked at you and knew that day
I looked at you and then I'd say
You know that we can't see this through
You replied, I am meant for you
You said to me, let's run away
You said to me, live for today
What could have been so long ago
I could not see, I could not know
I was a fool to go away
I was a fool to let you stray
I think of you when I awake
Rejected secrets and my mistakes.


7. DREAMS GROW ON SOLID GROUND


Crumblin' in a crumblin' town
Where the homes shot up and are now shot down
But dreams, they grow on solid ground
Soul food and bettin' on the numbers
Where the kids still played outside
The candy store was the place to hide
Crumblin' in a crumblin' town
Where the homes shot up and are now shot down
But dreams, they grow on solid ground
Louis was the Count of Cadillac Square
And Henry the Hatter is still down there
The Sugarman has now been found
He wasn't dead, he was Detroit bound
And the hope, the hope is all around
Back in Hockeytown
Patches of green and patches of brown
The lights went out when the sun went down
But the hope, the hope is all around
Crumblin' in a crumblin' town
Where the homes shot up and are now shot down
But dreams, they grow on solid ground
But the hope, the hope is all around

8. BEAUTY QUEEN


How bout a kiss for little miss?
Face in the mirror, black smear mascara
Busted tiara, it just don't fit
Spray on tan from an aerosol can
Jacked up hair, no love to share
Flipper teeth and sucky sweets
Cotton candy dream, grand supreme
Shake it left and shake it right
Shine on little star tonight
I know that I can't be, I can't be
Your beauty queen
But if I dress up nice and do everything right
Will you be kind to me?
If I dress up nice and do everything right
Will you be kind to me?
How bout a kiss for little miss?
Gogo juice and sugar cane
Dress up game gone insane
Hair of flax and costume racks
Stage-mom's smacks, it's all in vain
Love is more than sugar sticks
It's so sweet it makes me sick
Kiss my cheek and let me say
Mommy, can I go play today?
Mommy, can I go play today?
I know that I can't be, I can't be
Your beauty queen
But if I dress up nice and do everything right
Will you be kind to me?
Will you be kind to me?
Will you be kind to me?


9. MOVIE SCENE


I looked outside my window
and I saw him getting in the car
That man works too hard
Up early like always
And his side of the bed was already getting cold
I saw a man I'd known for half my life
And I knew we were getting old
An old restaurant by the highway
Beside a motel six
That's where a love of many years
Got a teenage fix
Cracking claws in paper bibs
And sipping on cold chardonnay
Skipping out the door like kids
Oh, so ready to play
His shirt glowed white, I touched his jeans
And I kissed him there behind the trees
And old car wreck by an abandoned shack
Became our secret special place
My head, my head was giddy
With the scent of coming home
And all the while that woodland green
Felt like a movie scene
The greatest high I have ever felt
And the biggest rush of love
When I face I had seen a thousand times
Made my heart skip a beat
The greatest high I have ever felt
And the biggest rush of love
When I face I had seen a thousand times
Made my heart skip a beat
In our movie scene
I opened the window and waved him down
As I threw on my dressing gown
And ran outside to plant a kiss
Right on that tired, cold face
I smiled at him and his face grew warm
He looked ready to brave any storm
And the old car wreck and the abandoned shack
Were shining in our eyes
The greatest high I have ever felt
And the biggest rush of love
When I face I had seen a thousand times
Made my heart skip a beat
The greatest high I have ever felt
And the biggest rush of love
When I face I had seen a thousand times
Made my heart skip a beat
And all the while that woodland green
Felt like a movie scene


10. NAMELESS


Threw away the diary
The letter, she just kept the memories
Just a week, she didn't want more
There were greater things she was waiting for
Yet he told her that she had changed his life
Now she is someone else's wife
He remains nameless
Nameless
Nameless
Nameless
Without a name, the world is wide
And what about her, has he even tried?
His face is forever etched in her mind.
Why waste her time, he's impossible to find
But if she thinks hard enough, it will come, you see
From her infinite sea of memory
He remains nameless
Nameless
Nameless
Nameless
Is he out there at all?
She lies awake at night.
She thought the world was small
But he's nowhere in sight
It was a long time ago
But something was so right
Nameless
Do you lie awake in bed?
Nameless
With my name in your head?
Nameless
Nameless
Nameless


11. THE ONLY HEART I EVER HAD


Longing filled my heart until it
Burst onto the floor
Disappeared into a puff of smoke
And my heart, it was no more
I think you took it with you
You naughty boy, you cad
You took it with you
The only heart I ever had
My heart was pumping full of love
Full of love for you
Until you pumped it dry
And then you said that we were through
You skipped town, my heart all crumpled in your hand
I think you took it with you
You naughty boy, you cad
You took it with you
The only heart I ever had.
My heart was a treat for you
A feast to fill your soul
You took it greedily
My only heart you stole
I think you took it with you
You naughty boy, you cad
You took it with you,
The only heart I ever had
The only heart I ever had
The only heart I ever had.


12. DEATH IS WORTH WAITING FOR


He started to rant and swear
We heard his steps on the stairs
And as he waved his freedom gun
We knew if was too late to run
Wet death surrounded me as I floated round
No wave for help, I was far, far down
My dying music played
A final sound
As I went down.
Why does death go to our heads
We run right to our beds
Rolling in the hay, our hearts full of dread
Trying to forget fear of endless night
With endless lust instead
Death is worth waiting for
I could wait forever


13. LE PELERINAGE


Il traversait les montagnes
Dans son coeur étaient l'espoir et le rage
Il faisait le pèlerinage
Il priait à Dieu qu'elle revienne
Qu'elle revienne.
(Tuoll on mun kultani…)
Mais Dieu ne l'écoutait pas
Le Destin voulait qu'un autre soit la sienne
Il prié a Dieu qu'elle revienne
Mais le Destin voulait qu'un autre soit la sienne
Et l'autre, c'est moi.
