Lyrically Speaking for October 3


Good Friday everyone! Today brings a new edition of lyrically speaking for all of you to enjoy. I wanted to bring it back home a little bit and let you guys know about a local band that you all probably have heard of. The band nine days had their breakout hit “story of a girl” back around 2000. I’m sure all most all of you heard it on your main radio stations where you live. Unfortunately nine days seem to be a one-hit wonder. But here on Long Island things are a little bit different.

Nine days started out as a local band that took the area by storm and want a very publicized contest to become the best band on Long Island. I knew the song “story of a girl” approximately 3-4 years before anybody heard it on the radio outside of the area. After they faded away from the national music scene they laid low around here too, but still continue to put out some material. Recently, the band put out a new EP with some great songs on it.

The new album’s slow-motion life part one is a collection of six songs that sound really great. One of the top songs is an inspirational melody called “brand-new me”. The music on the song is fantastic but the lyrics are even more powerful. I just heard this album for the first time last week and knew right away that some of the songs had to become part of the lyrically speaking series. I hope you all enjoy the song as much as I do.

From the band Nine Days, this is Brand New Me:

i could not change, i could not be
what you needed me to be
so i lay down my arms
and i will fight no more
give my wounds some time to heal
so i cannot feel
let me be numb so i can smile
and fake it for a while

just give me faith and give me love
let it fall from up above
give me something i don’t know
that i do not recognize
a brand new face, a brand new soul
let me rise up from the old
become someone you don’t know
that you will not recognize

and if i knew your memory
looking back what would i see
were you different on your own
how could i know
and is it easier to heal
do you break now just to feel
a little something after all
and now something is gone

just give me faith and give me love
let it fall from up above
give me something i don’t know
that i do not recognize
a brand new face, a brand new soul
let me rise up from the old
become someone you don’t know
that you will not recognize

follow in your will that’ll get there for you
following behind and i won’t ignore you
i hear the voices in my head
but i do not listen to them

just give me faith and give me love
let it fall from up above
give me something i don’t know
a brand new face, a brand new soul
let me rise up from the old
become someone you don’t know

just give me wind upon my back
let me say that i won’t come back
take me somewhere i don’t know
that i do not recognize
a brand new place to call my own
let me rise up from the old
become someone you don’t know
that you will not recognize
that you will not recognize
that you will not recognize
