about

Brother Spellbinder San Francisco, California

Well crafted songs with old world ache and modern angst. The best music defies any strict definition. But suffice it to say that Brother Spellbinder combine various musical textures into something melodic, otherworldly, and yet earthy and tangible.

Track Name: Speed of Sound
I don’t know why the world is round
What is music, but the speed of sound
We hear and sway
We dance and play

I don’t know how to let you go
Thoughts are racing, but my heart is slow
Be still, obey
Please leave, please stay

Maybe people shouldn’t grow so close
Every lover leaves a gaping hole
So hold me close
So hold me close

Every moral has a fairytale
There’s a human underneath each shell
Hold tight, release
Please stay, please leave

And suddenly you’re far away from home
And suddenly you’re far away from home
Track Name: Follow Me
The tide's always turning
The heart is still burning
And we aren't learning
To love ourselves, love ourselves

Stop your complaining
The world we know is waning
But music is still playing
So move yourself, move yourself

Follow me
I will take you there
Make believe
And we’re almost there

The cradle is rocking
The clock is tick-tocking
Stand up, start walking
And know thyself, know thyself

The end now is looming
Though flowers are blooming
And lovers are wooing
Someone else, someone else

Follow me
And I'll will take you there
Make believe
And we’re almost there
Track Name: Flicker
Living by faith
Every day we might break
As the night starts to fade
And the light starts to flicker

Flicker inside
Eyes open wide
Sign of the times
As the stars align...
Track Name: Madame
Madame, you drive to distraction
The world as I knew it is crashing
Madame your heart know no mercy
You plunder and pillage with furry


Madame you got what you wanted
I'm bitter and broken and haunted
I gave up my home, heart and reason
And all you could spare was a season
Madame you make me a madman
Searching for love in the wasteland


I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
Your love, your love, your love

Madame you take me for granted
Now you must reap what you planted
I lied, begged and stole and I cheated
I won't be denied or defeated
Madame you drive to distraction
But now at least life burns with passion


I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
Your love, your love, your love
Track Name: Sara
Sara was a friend of mine when she was around
Said there were a lot of things that used to bring her down
Daddy disappeared one day when she was a child
Mama liked to stay indoors, said she was so tired

Are you listening, do you care?
Life ain't easy, life ain't fair

One day she was ripe and round
And found the love she craved
But every lover dragged her down
Closer to the grave
Drinking was a mellow ride
At first it seemed to save
But faster than a shooting star
Her light began to fade

Are you listening, do you care?
Life ain't easy, life ain't fair

Always was the centerpiece
The scene would come alive
But when she was alone at night
She hung her head and cried
Sunday morning rolled around
They found her still in bed
Said she had a 38 and took it to her head

Hush my darling, nothing's wrong
The sun still rises and life goes one
Are you listening, do you care?
Life ain't easy, life ain't fair
Track Name: Josephine
Josephine, drama queen
You thought that you had it
A love that was magic
Turned suddenly tragic

Danger zone, you're all alone
It's making your nervous
You think you deserve this

Never say never
It's gonna get better
You're light as a feather
Fly high, you're gonna get by


And so on....
