    Miracle Girl            Beth Wimmer c2008

     

    Fat bus driver

    bringin' me to you

    my Love's a survivor

    brave and crazy things I do

     

    Sleep alone tonight

    watchin' you drive away

    my Hope remains inside

    you'll be ready

     

    Chorus:

    For a Miracle like me

    this chance don't come often

    for pure Magic in your world

    with a Miracle Girl

     

    with a Miracle like me

    this chance won't come again

    I'll bring Magic to your world

    i'm a Miracle Girl

     

    You don't want her

    but she's into you like a pill

    on your smooth water

    she's an oil spill

     

    Midlife situation

    so many paths you could take

    with no wrong direction

    with the Love you'll make

     

    Chorus:

    With a Miracle like me

    this chance don't come often

    for pure Magic in your world

    with a Miracle Girl

     

    with a Miracle like me

    I'll bring Magic to your world

    i'm a Miracle Girl

    Ten-Four

    Ten~Four          Beth Wimmer c2008

     

    Hey buddy that's a big ten four

    hey buddy and a big F.U.

    i'm over and out the door 

    cause you just can't do what you say you'll do

    just can't do what you say you'll do

     

    Hey buddy that's a big ten four

    i'm pickin' up what you been layin' down

    i won't wonder what's your twenty any more

    i don't care if you're home or if you're out of town

    don't care where you're going when you're out of town

     

    There's a sweet breeze in the winter air

    it's a warm December but you're frozen there

    my Heart is open and my Love is free

    but i wish you were beautiful enough for me

    wish you were beautiful enough for me

     

    Hey buddy that's a big ten four

    hey buddy and a big F.U.

    i'm over and i'm out the door 

    cause you just can't do what you say you'll do

    can't be the man you say that you're up to

     

    Six weeks since i've heard your voice

    you took the low road when i made my choice

    i'm west-bound down into the winter sun

    with my Heart wide open Spirit on the run

    Heart wide open Spirit on the run

    it's all waiting for me and here I come...

    Lover From Last Summer        Beth Wimmer c2005

     

    Chorus

    you're my lover from last summer, why you callin' me this spring

    you're the one who said last summer that it didn't mean a thing

     

    V1

    well i wanted something more with you

    you said it was only physical

    purely recreational

    now you're knockin' at my door

     

    Chorus

    you're my lover from last summer, why you callin' me this spring

    you're the one who said last summer that it was only a fling

     

    you're my lover from last summer, why you callin' me today

    don't try messin' with my mind with all the charming words you say

     

    V2

    well i had a little fun with you

    now i'm happy to be done

    i need more feeling in my man

    one who's doing all he can 

    (not last year's lover)

     

    guitar solo/break-down

     

    Chorus

    you're my lover from last summer, why you callin' me this spring

    you're the one who said last summer that it was only a fling

     

    you're my lover from last summer, why you callin' me today

    don't try messin' with my heart with all that charming crap you say

     

    you're my lover from last summer and you weren't even that nice

    i guess you never had it this good and so now you're thinkin' twice

     

    you're my lover from last summer and you weren't even that good

    you should fade into my history just like last summer should!

     

    you're gonna fade into my history just like last summer should

    you will fade into my history just like last summer should!

    I Couldn't Do It

    I Couldn't Do It          Beth Wimmer c2008

     

    Sometimes I think i should trade in my life

    give up my dreams for a cause much greater than this

    I don't know but maybe the soldiers that go 

    got more Passion in their toes than i have in my finest Kiss

     

    I wanna know... how it feels for you

    to give up your rights... and fight where they tell you to

     

    Chorus:

    But I Couldn't Do it

    do what you done

    it takes crazy courage

    it takes brave Blood

     

    I can't imagine fighting in war

    i got my causes but only one of them worth dying for

    we're all the same but we change at the core

    i guess it depends on the ends of the Earth you were born

     

    I wanna know...  how it feels for you

    to give up your rights... and kill who they tell you to

     

    Chorus:

    But I Couldn't Do it

    do what you done

    it takes crazy courage

    it takes brave blood

     

    I Couldn't Do it

    kill with a gun

    you couldn't count on me

    i'd turn and run

     

    I wanna know... how it feels for you

    to give up your Life... and die when they tell you to

     

    Chorus:

    But I Couldn't Do it

    do what you done

    it takes crazy courage

    it takes brave blood

     

    I Couldn't Do it

    kill with a gun

    you couldn't count on me

    i'd turn and run

    O My Brother

    O My Brother           Beth Wimmer 2008

     

    You go through the motions    not really knowing what for

    you shut out the pain and the sadness behind your white door

    you can come to me    you know that i will take your hand

    why don't you call me   i will try to understand

     

    Chorus:

    O My Brother   don't you take yourself and hide

    'cause we all need each other  to make it thru this life

    the grass will still be growing on the other side

    with happiness and freedom    but you gotta take that ride

     

    The way that you're living   like emptiness is always yours

    you can have what you want when you make up your mind to change course

    you can defy gravity if you're willing to take every chance

    let the flames round your ankles inspire you to finally dance

     

    Chorus:

    O My Brother   don't you take yourself and hide

    'cause we all need each other  to make it thru this life

    the grass will still be growing on the other side

    with happiness and freedom    once you finally take that ride

     

    Nature don't judge you if you feel ashamed

    but to waste away life goes against Nature's grain

    it's time to make a change

     

    Chorus:

    O My Brother    stay here by my side

    'cause we both need each other   to make it through this night

    the grass is always growing   on the other side

    with happiness and freedom   once you finally take that ride

    to happiness and freedom

    Dreams Bring Me Down

    Dreams Bring Me Down                Beth Wimmer c2008

     

    Life is just extraordinary i have everything a girl could need

    a lovin' man with able hands, clothes and friends and pretty things indeed

    but lately when i go to sleep visions come into my bed and haunt

    images come swimming in of Love lost and of happiness forgot

     

    My Dreams are bringin' me down

    my dreams are bringin' me down

     

    While i'm sleeping color tinted fantasies are played out in my head

    the man i've always loved is making camp for us beside a riverbed

    with smoky eyes he deeply sighs he'll keep his fire burning all his life

    that's when i wake with tears in eyes and realize i'm someone else's wife

     

    My Dreams are bringin' me down

    my dreams are bringin' me down

     

    and every night i pray i'll be refreshed, but again i wake depressed

    and every day i feel my worries lost, but at night i turn and toss

     

    Sad scenarios and empty echoes every time i close my eyes

    i'm riding with a murderer while in the back seat someone's baby cries

    the man i've always loved arrives with watercolor eyes to save my Soul

    but when i turn to run to him i fall 1000 miles down a black hole

     

    My Dreams are bringin' me down

    my dreams are bringin' me down

    my dreams are bringin' me down

    Allow me to reveal myself

    my name is Love

    i'm here for everybody else

    my name is Love

     

    I care for you the moment that you let it

    so completely that you won't forget it 

    you'll never be the same now that you have met it

    my name is Love

     

    Feel the power, warm sweet fire

    my name is Love

    all you need is a desire

    for living above

     

    Leave behind your painful past

    pin your heart on true Love's mast

    if you can't you will still be blessed

    my name is Love

    my name is Love

     

    It's an impossibility that i will fight you

    my name is Love

    my heart's desire is to delight you

    my name is Love

     

    Lighten up let down your guard

    have trust in the human Heart

    in any moment joy can start

    my name is Love

    my name is Love...

    Only Love Can Break Your Heart

    Only Love Can Break Your Heart         Neil Young/Broken Arrow Music

     

    When you were young and on your own

    how did it feel to be alone

    i was always thinkin' of games that i was playing

    trying to make the best of my time

     

    Chorus:

    But only Love can break your heart

    try to be sure right from the start

    yes only Love can break your heart

    what if your world should fall apart

     

    I have a friend i've never seen

    he hides his head inside a dream

    someone should call him and see if he can come out

    try to lose the down that he's found

     

    Chorus:

    But only Love can break your heart

    try to be sure right from the start

    yes only Love can break your heart

    what if your world should fall apart

     

    I have a friend i've never seen

    he hides his head inside a dream

    yes only Love can break your heart

    yes only Love can break your heart

    yes only Love can break your heart

NOTES
"Beth Wimmer embraces Americana with alt. country, rock and folk...The result may be called astonishing. Wimmer with the title track immediately indicates a very clear business card: '..with a miracle like me...brave and crazy things I do...I'll bring magic to your world, I'm a miracle girl.' Superb song! An honest voice. Miracle Girl is full of heart and soul and incredible songs." -Swa, Rootsville.be, Belgium
