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

Follow Me 04:02
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

Flicker 04:27
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...

Madame 04:19
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

Sara 04:53
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

Josephine 03:13
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....

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.
