WE'LL HAVE A The world is so frightening, there's never enough The world is so frightening for me and my love There's no one to comfort you, no one to care There's only this want and my pitiful share So let's have a family! We'll have a family Let's have a baby We'll have a baby It didn't turn out like they told me it would My parents were sure I was 'specially good Where is my victory? Where my reward? Where is the kingdom where I would be Lord? Let's make a family! We'll make a family Let's make a baby We'll make a baby Let's have a family A big happy family Let's have a baby A fat happy baby

MT. ATHOS I'm trying to get to heaven, but there's a woman in the way There's a woman in the way of men on their way I'm trying to get to Jesus, but there's a woman in the way There's a woman in the way of men on their way I'm trying to get to Allah but there's a woman in the way There's a woman in the way of men on their way I'm trying to get to Buddah but there's a woman in the way There's a woman in the way of men on their way Hey

ROBIN Run little robin from the nest on down Past the sycamore and o'er the tether Run little robin til you're on the ground Run run run until your wings are better Run little robin from your happy home Sister Suzy and your pa and mother Run little robin don't you tell no one Tell nobody what we tell eachother One wing cut for the little white lie Clip clip, oh you little lonesome feather Two wing scissored for the alibi Now you're always gonna feel the weather Sing little robin from your lonely tree Make it pretty like you hear on Sunday Sing little robin for only me I love you, and we will leave here one day

You know you're only human if you made a mistake You're nothing if you never give a brother a break You hope you can forget the awful things that you said You wish that you'd been better when you're on your deathbed I couldn't help it that I saw my destiny there Believe me when I tell you I tried not to care The heart wants what it wants and I'm a romantic too You'll never know how hard it was for me, hurting you There's something so religious in the way that I feel There's Jesus in my step and glory, oh, in my heel! I never really knew it, this is what we are for I'm sorry you don't want to be friends anymore I hope that you can find it to forgive me one day I think of you a little til I will it away The heart wants what it wants and what the hell can you do? You'll never know how hard it was for me, hurting you

The things we say to men in war to keep them moving forward The world will never be the same if you do not go warward For mother and for liberty, for truth and hope defending Your sacrifice will ever be, for us, our happy ending Be brave and make us proud of you Behave the way we taught you to When you were just a little boy You cried just like a girl The things we say to men in war to keep them in the fighting The wrongs in all the dreadful world need you to do the righting For mother and for liberty, for sister and for neighbor For everything that we hold dear, you do this dirty labor Be brave and make us proud of you Behave the way we taught you to When you were just a little boy You cried just like a girl

about

Rachel Taylor Brown Portland, Oregon

Rachel was born in Portland and lives nearby with her beloved husband Jay. She makes disturbing yet ultimately sensible songs you can sometimes dance to.

She sees loads of ugly and beauty in the world. Trying to capture that sweet and sour thing in a song is what she’s mostly trying to do.

She records with audio midwife and dear friend Jeff Stuart Saltzman and his cats.

Thanks for stopping by!
