​C O L I N BRACEWELL

New song, "WHY", just released!

"Colin Bracewell's latest track, 'Why', is a masterful display of heartfelt lyricism matched with dynamic songwriting. The brilliant high falsetto cries against the minimal production, add depths of emotion, especially with such a variety of sounds that are being produced. Light ambient synths, diverse guitar strums, and a blind-sided switch of the melody and pace from the chorus into the bridge act as a clever misdirection leading into the eruptive outro. For as chill and minimal as it seemingly portrays, 'Why', is a cinematic journey that's left me hitting repeat, repeat, repeat, in hopes of discovering another goose egg of sounds I missed the first time around." EARMILK David Sikorski

"Bracewell pairs wistful reminiscence with ringing guitar chords, that are allowed to vibrate through the song's walls." 

Wes Muilenburg, EAR COFFEE

LYRICS

WHY

Why don't you listen, to me

So ashamed of what you've made me

Can't recall why I'm upset and bruised

Headspace in the wrong place

My God, it's aching for you

Can't recall why I'm obsessed with you

Let me see it through

So tell me why

So tell me why

You gotta let me know

Just gotta let me know

I don't understand why

I don't understand why

Please let me know

Or let me go

I don't know why we had to go but

Everything was so slow up

North where we could be ourselves

But everything was not ourselves

I don't know why you hideaway

From beach day or any day

Can you let it go….so.

I can see her

She's all cold up there

How to feel her touch

Upon her ladder

I can see her

I can feel her scratching

Just to feel her touch

I love her so much.

YOU'RE FINE 

Flashing lights I see around

On the phone, their talking feels down

It’s clear to see that something’s not okay

So don’t work today, it’s not okay


And don’t tell me it’s gonna be okay

Because I know “okay” and it feels as though we’re slipping away

And something keeps it going every time

And even though you say, “You’re mine”

"You're mine"

But, it doesn’t feel like that


It’s cold outside, of course we’ll hide,

We’ll make it there some other way

Why must we fight or even try?

We’ll make it there eventually


And the pain fills you on

And it feels like you don’t belong

And the pain withers your insides

And, something keeps it going every time.


And it can’t get off, even if you try

And you wash away, but you still feel the line

Just know, you’re fine

Just know, all mine

Just know, you’re fine

Just know, you’re fine

Music and lyrics: Colin Bracewell

 

20+ YEARS

Restless face, dirty phone

Lucky you, all alone

Love you Dear, so he says

Then he goes on a walk without you


All you get are pretty lies

They weigh you down

Come on with the compromise

Oh, but how?

2AM he comes to you

Yeah, ring that bell

Can we help?


Twenty plus years it's been now

But these last two have just

Brought me down

It's plain to see, just look around

Can we work this out?

Can we work this out?


It's breaking my heart to see you down

This bluff, oh Mama, Mama how?

It's plain to see, just look around

Can we work this out?

We can't work this out


People see, no one speaks

Twisted health benefits the weak

Wait in line, watch your step

Breathe in, breathe in, deeply


All you get are pretty lies

They weigh you down

Come on with the compromise

Oh, but how

2AM he comes to you

Yeah, ring that bell

Can we help?


Twenty plus years it's been now

But these last two have just

Brought me down

It's plain to see, just look around

Can we work this out?

Can we work this out?


It's breaking my heart to see you down

This bluff, oh Mama, Mama how?

It's plain to see, just look around

Can we work this out?

We can't work this out.

Music and lyrics: Colin Bracewell

LITTLE  SECRET

Let me settle on a little secret

Straining my filtered heart

I can't help you

But you can help me


Come and put some time away for me

Oh, I can't help but see

You're the harmony

That filters right through me


Tally down your favorite blend

Raw and free just like you said

Come to me and we'll pretend

That nothing - your voice - nothing


Well now, don't talk

Don't speak, unlocked this is, but so unique

Come through to me

Avoid misuse broken down, nothing to lose (nothing to lose)


Tally down your favorite blend

Raw and free just like you said

Come to me and we'll pretend

That nothing - this mix - nothing

This valley has to see

To see
