Allison Brown Windsor, Ontario

Allison Brown’s sweet, powerful singing offers a captivating invitation to follow her down lonesome railroad lines, into abandoned buildings, back in time, to high above the stratosphere as she illustrates landscapes both strange and familiar with her newest collection of songs. “a gorgeous voice that seemed way too big for one person” ~ NoDepression.Com ... more

Track Name: All Our Emergencies
This is where they send you when you get in trouble
That’s the door you walk through when no one will take you in
This is where they save the godless daughters of the devil
This is where they take them when they start to show their sin

This is where they send you when they scrape you off the sidewalk
This is where they pull the shards of glass out of your eye
That’s the door you walk out when they put you back together
This is where they hold your hand and say you’ll be alright
If you’ll be alright

Bad luck and bad decisions
Stitches and incisions
All our disease
All our emergencies
We just threw them at her feet

Now she looks so lonesome as she’s crumbling abandoned
The doors are locked, the fence is high
The weeds are growing tall
Walking by you look up and you can’t help but imagine
Behind which of these boarded windows your first breath was drawn

Bad luck and bad decisions
Stitches and incisions
All our disease
All our emergencies
We just threw them at her feet

How many nameless voices are still quiet waiting patient?
How many ghosts still linger waiting for a resting place?
What will we find when they tear it down to the foundation?
There are some wounds that never heal and scars you can’t erase

Bad luck and bad decisions
Stitches and incisions
All our disease
All our emergencies
We just threw them at her feet

Track Name: Your Enemy
Your Enemy ~ Allison Brown c. 2013
Recorded May 2013 at House Of Miracles

Sometimes I wonder what you might be up to right now
You’re probably leaping tall buildings in a single bound
Not like me, laying around here on the couch – again
While you’re flying high above the clouds, I’m still on the ground

I can’t get out of this little square I’ve been drawn inside
None of my evil schemes ever work out right
So I’ll get back to work on plotting your demise – again
And I’ll act so surprised when the good guys always win

No matter what the premise is
Everybody needs a nemesis
Somebody who just never quits
Trying to take you down

But what if I don’t want to be your enemy?
What if I don’t want to be your enemy anymore?

Faster than bullet speed you must miss a lot
I’m short on superpowers but I haven’t got caught
Don’t need no secret identity, don’t have a day job
I feel like giving up, oh I just can’t stop

I’m not saying that we could be friends
If we quit fighting then the story ends
Guess I’ll always be around the bend
Trying to take you down

But what if I don’t want to be your enemy?
What if I don’t want to be your enemy anymore?
But what if I don’t want to be your enemy?
What if I don’t want to be your enemy anymore?
