Ain't No Reason
Brett Dennen Lyrics


There ain't no reason things are this way
It's how they've always been and they intend to stay
I can't explain why we live this way
We do it every day

Preachers on the podiums speaking of saints
Prophets on the sidewalk begging for change
Old ladies laughing from the fire escape
Cursing my name

I got a basket full of lemons and they all taste the same
A window and a pigeon with a broken wing
You could spend your whole life working for something
Just to have it taken away

People walk around pushing back their debts
Wearing paychecks like necklaces and bracelets
Talking about nothing, not thinking 'bout death
Every little heartbeat, every little breath

People walk a tight rope on a razor's edge
Carrying their hurt and hatred and weapons
It could be a bomb, or a bullet or a pen
Or thought, or a word or a sentence

There ain't no reason things are this way
It's how they always been and they intend to stay
I don't know why I say the things I say
But I say them anyway

But love will come, set me free
Love will come, set me free, I do believe
Love will come, set me free, I know it will
Love will come, set me free, yes

Prison walls still standing tall
Some things never change at all
Keep on building prisons, gonna fill them all
Keep on building bombs, gonna drop them all

Working your fingers bare to the bone
Breaking your back, make you sell your soul
Like a lung, it's filled with cold
Suffocating slow

The wind blows wild and I may move
The politicians lie and I am not fooled
You don't need no razor or a three piece suit
To argue the truth

They air on my skin in the world under my toes
Slavery stitched to the fabric of my clothes
Chaos and commotion wherever I go
Love I try to follow

Love will come, set me free
Love will come, set me free, I do believe
Love will come, set me free, I know it will
Love will come, set me free, yes

There ain't no reason things are this way
It's how they've always been and they intend to stay
I can't explain why we live this way
We do it every day

There ain't no reason things are this way
Its how they always been and it tends to stay
I can't explain why we live this way, we do it everyday
Preachers on the podeum speaking of saints
Prophets on the sidewalk begging for change
old ladies laughing from the fire escape cursing my name
I got a basket full of lemons and they all taste the same
A window and a pigeon with a broken wing
You can spend you whole life working for something,
Just to have it taken away
People walk aroun pushing back their debts
Wearing pay checks like necklaces and braceltes
Talking bout nothing, not thinking bout' death
Every little hearbeat, every little breath
People walk a tight rope
On a razors edge
Carrying their hurt and hatrid and weapons
It could be a bomb or a bullet or a pen
Or a thought or a word or a sentence

There ain't no reason things are this way
It's how they've always been and it tends to stay
I dont know why I say the things that I say
But I say them anyway
But love will come set me free

Love will come set me free, I do believe
Love will come set me free, I know it will
Love will come set my free yes.

Prison walls still standing tall
Some things never change at all
Keep on building prisons, gonna fill them all
Keep building bombs, gonna drop them all
Working young fingers bear to the bone
Breaking your back make you sell your soul
Like a lung its filled with cold, sufficating slow
The wind blows wild and I may move
The politions lie and i am not fooled
you don't need no reason or a three piece suit
To argue the truth
The air on my skin and the world under my toes
Labor is stiched into the fabric of my clothes
Chaos and comotion wherever I go
Love I try to follow
Love will come set me free

Love will come set me free, I do believe
Love will come set me free, I know it will
Love will come set my free yes.

There ain't no reason things are this way
Its how its always been and it tends to stay
I can't explain why we live this way, we do it everyday.

I have searched for this song for over a decade and a Facebook group finally lead me here. The image of this guy has popped in my head from time to time over the years and i searched aimlessly for “red head acoustic guitar” but unfortunately or me Ed Sheran had a career. I didn’t remember his name or even what the song sounded like or any words. Feels so good to finally find it again and hey it’s nice tune too!

Merwan Raiche

The fuck, exaclty the same! Even the searching words on Google until his face pops up! Same story same happiness at the end 👌👍

Lmao, I recently found a band that I used ti listen to in highschool. I could remember the music videos and the the style of music, but could not remember any words or titles of any kind so I had no lead. I've litterally been thinking about it for probably close to 15 years. And then one day about a year ago, cleaning the house, BAM! Their name just popped in my head. It was weird but to say I was relieved and excited is an understatement. Makes you think about how much beloved music was lost and never found for people before the internet existed.

Brad Winter

I've also looked over a decade from an episode of House.

KidoMega

This guy is so good, he deserves a lot more recognition. He's one of the artists I look up to as an inspiration for my own songwriting.

Jordan

Are you still alive?

Lucky Hands

Why doesnt real music like this get the recognition it deserves. Its a shame really

Chad

Marlon Rando
