Brett Dennen: There Is So Much More



More. What a concept. A heartbreakingly beautiful voice and my current musical obsession: Brett Dennen singing "There is So Much More" at the Canal Room in NYC on June 19, 2006.

There Is So Much More
Brett Dennen, from the album So Much More, available on iTunes

When I heard the news
My heart fell on the floor
I was on a plane on my way to Baltimore
In these troubled times its hard enough as it is
My soul has known a better life than this

I wondered how so many could be in so much pain
While others don't seem to feel a thing
Then I curse my wiseness and I get so damned depressed
In a world of suffering why should I be so blessed

I heard about a woman who lives in Colorado
She built a monument of sorts behind her garage door
Where everyday she prays for all whom are born and all whose souls have passed on
Sometimes my trouble gets so thick
I can't see how I'm going to get through it
But then I would rather be stuck up in a tree
Than be tied to it

I know
There is so much more

I don't feel comfortable with the way my clothes fit
I can't get used to my body's limits
I got some fancy shoes to try and kick away these blues
They cost a lot of money but they aren't worth a thing
I want to free my feet from the broken glass and concrete
I need to get out of this city
Lay upon the ground and stare a hole in the sky
Wondering where I go when I die
When I die

I heard this song on KCRW at 3:15.

I drove home quickly and by 3:35 it was already on my Blog.

Thanks for helping me find it! =)

(I couldn't find another place to comment.)

I found your blog because I heard that song. But as I was looking around, I noticed your artwork . . . and it kinda looked like the artwork I put up on my web-page (from a coffeehouse in LA).

Weird.
