Brendan Benson

I've only very recently caught up to Brendan Benson. I loved Spit It Out when it was released then Tess's enthusiasm for it encouraged me to have a listen some more.

Off the current album, Alternative to Love

My two favourite tracks at the moment are Cold Hands (Warm Heart) and What I'm Looking For : importantly, these were my favourite tracks when I unexpectedly (but happily) saw Brendan Benson live a week or two ago.

Voila a direct quote from Tess (I think)

less of an album, more of an ear snuggle.

It's true! Here are the lyrics from those two favourite tracks, just in case anyone's interested!

Cold Hands (Warm Heart)

Cold hands, warm heart
We just need some time apart
And everything will be okay
Oh no, not again
Why does it always happen?
It seems like every other day

You're too quiet, I'm too loud
Now we've rid a storm cloud
I'll see you on the other side
Old habits, young ways
Maybe we're just a phase
But we can say we really try

And it really shouldn't be this hard
You know it really shouldn't be
And if we can only see it this far
Well then I hate to say it, but it's obvious
I'm telling you, girl, there's no future for us

All talk, no action
So what's the big attraction?
And don't tell me it's "just because"
All work, no play
Don't wanna go on this way
I wanna go back to the way it was

And it really shouldn't be this hard
You know it really shouldn't be
And if we can only take it this far
Well then we've got to end it before it's too late
The love that is left turns quickly to hate

Cold hands, warm heart
We just need some time apart
And everything will be okay

What I'm Looking For

Well I don't know what I'm looking for
But I know that I just wanna look some more
And I won't be satisfied
'Till there's nothing left that I haven't tried
For some people it's an easy choice
But for me there's a devil and an angel's voice
Well I don't know what I am looking for
But I know that I just wanna look some more

Well I don't know what I'm living for
But I know that I just wanna live some more
And you hear it from strangers
And you hear it from friends
That love never dies, love never ends
Now I don't wanna argue, no I don't wanna fight
'Cause you're always wrong and I'm always right
Well I don't know what I am living for
But I know that I just wanna live some more

I used to be involved, and I felt like a king
Now I've lost it all and I don't feel a thing
I may never grow old, I may never give in
And I'll blame this world that I live in
I visit hell on a daily basis
I see the sadness in all your faces
I've got friends who have married
And their lives seem complete
Here I am still stumbling down a darkened street

And I act like a child and I'm insecure
And I'm filled with doubt and I'm immature
Sometimes it creeps up on me and before I know it
I'm lost at sea
But no matter how far I row
I always find my way back home
But I don't know what I've been waiting for
But I know that I don't wanna wait anymore

Looking for…
What I'm looking for…
Looking for…
What I'm looking for…
Looking for…
What I'm looking for…
Looking for…
What I'm looking for…
Looking for…
What I'm looking for…
