When the sky is falling from above you
And the wind is raging from the coast
And you want someone who truly loves you
I will be the one who loves you the most

When the masquerade and burlesqued balls
Become too ordinary to boast
You complain about the parade and curtain calls
I will be the one who loves you the most
Yeah, I will be the one who loves you the most

When the women with their stolen graces
Don't invite you to play host
To their daughters with fake faces
I will be the one who loves you the most

When all the debutantes desert you
And all the doorways are all closed
And the harlequins have hurt you
I will be the one who loves you the most
I will be the one who loves you the most

When your suitors sneering swank beside you
And leave you hollow like a ghost
And you just want somebody to confide to
I will be the one who loves you the most
I will be the one who loves you the most

See, when you forgive your imperfections
And you've auctioned all your clothes
And look to see your true reflection
You will be the one who loves you the most
You will be the one who loves you the most
You will be the one who loves you the most

"Heaven" from 2008 album "Hope for the Hopeless":

Beyond the rules of religion
The cloth of conviction
Above all the competition
Where fact and fiction meet

There's no color lines or casts or classes
There is no fooling the masses
Whatever faith you practice
Whatever you believe


Heaven, heaven.
What the hell is heaven?
Is there a home for the homeless?
Is there hope for the hopeless?

Throw away your misconceptions
There's no walls around heaven
There's no codes you got to know to get in
No minutemen or border patrol

You must lose all your earthly possession
Leave behind your weapon
You cannot buy your salvation
There is no pot of gold



Heaven ain't got no prisons
No government no business
No banks or politicians
No armies and no police

Castles and cathedrals crumble
Pyramids and pipelines tumble
The failure keeps you humble
Leads us closer to peace

Album with the participation of Missy Higgins - Backing vocals.

eh, what's that you say...this guy sounds like Amy,,pffft!


where did this come from? {#Hearteyes} 
Sounds too much like his Ain't No Reason, which was okay for a short while, but grew old soon. (I think it's him.)


He's got a unique twist of phrase and an engaging style. I like it.
gak gak gak wtf makeitstoppleasemakeitstop!!!!!!!! is being able to SING a prerequisite?

forgive the language but holy shit this is PAINFUL. 
Clever lyrics—cute punchline.

My ears, my ears!!!!!!

Took me nearly three seconds to get to the mute button! 
It took me a while but I really like his sound now, ...but then I also like Fever Ray.

I don't agree.  It's well recorded, well produced and is more original than most of the 'professional' stuff I hear on the top 40 stations.  Still doesn't do anything for me, but having been exposed to real amateurs on a regular basis, I can't complain about Brett.

Sounds like Amy Winehouse

How many albums does someone have to release before they're not an amateur anymore?  I'm not super keen on it, but I think he's made enough of a commitment to this career to avoid being called an amateur...

7 for Brett, 8 for Slim...

I didn't think it was all that bad.  The sentiment of the chorus reached me.
