    We all have wishes
    We all have pride
    We all make decisions
    We all tell lies
    And in spite of what life may be telling me
    We all possess true love's ability

about

For years it has been on my mind and heart to offer people the opportunity to bring home a little bit of me and my music. This product has come to life through many hours of effort and a great amount of love. The stories in these songs are all inspired by the life I have been living and of the life I am trying to live. It is my wish that this product will bring hope to people who find themselves in a world full of brokenness and pain. More so I wish to honor God the almighty and His Son Jesus Christ for all He has given me.

If not for the help and support from friends and family this EP would never have seen the light of day. Thank you Dorit for giving me the freedom to go to Nashville for three months and supporting me in this ludicrous project. Thank you mom and dad for supporting me financially. To Devon, Becki and Reegan DeVries for letting me be part of their family for three months. For Søren Kjeldgaard for taking the long trip to Nashville to make some amazing photos. To the producers for letting me be me. All glory to God for leading me on His path.

All songs written by Broder A (aka Andreas Hejslet). Recorded in the fall of 2010 in Nashville with an amazing team from Global Genius Productions.

Track Name: Free
Free

I wish that I was just a little bit stronger
Then I'd fight your demons
I wish that I could be all you'd ever need
Then I´d only give myself to you
I wish that I could fight your battles
Then you wouldn't have to struggle so much yourself
I wish you could see all the fighting in me
That I would lay down my life

I believe there´s a way for you
As I believe there´s a way for me too
Can´t tell you where to walk or go
But I´ll walk that walk, even alone

We can be free
We can be free
We can be free, totally

I´m not the one you need, no baby
You probably know that
I´m not the one to save you
I can´t set you free
I´m not a man of great power
I can´t even save myself
I know it's not right so I'm done fighting the fights
That only God can win

Now I believe there´s a way for you
As I believe there´s a way for me too
Can´t tell you where to walk or go
But I´ll walk that walk, even alone

We can be free
We can be free
We can be free, totally
Track Name: Heavy Dancer
Heavy Dancer

She may be a heavy dancer
Not to fun to swing around
Why don't you give her a second chance and
Soon she'll sway all over town

I don't see how that's a problem
Still you say that she's the one
You start dancing now you're stopping
What exactly do you want

Don't you play that game, brother
Don't you light that flame
Don't you claim insane, brother
Don't you lie or try to tow my chain

Come on, talk, release the tension
We all got everything to loose
You must have so much to mention
'Cause you got me all confused

I don't buy your limping story
'Cause you can give her more than that
The truth never seems to bore me
So how about we have a little chat, shall we?

Don't you play that game, brother
Don't you light that flame
Don't you claim insane, brother
Don't you lie or try to tow my chain

Now, who's the heavy dancer?
Who's the heavy dancer?
Now, who's the heavy dancer?
Who's the heavy dancer?
Now, who's the heavy dancer?
Who's the heavy dancer?
Any suggestions?
Who's the heavy dancer?
Who's the heavy dancer?
It's you!

Don't you play that game, brother
Don't you light that flame
Don't you claim insane, brother
Don't you lie or try to tow my chain

Who's the heavy dancer?
It's you!
Track Name: Brink Decision
Brink Decision

One foot on the brink and one in the air
The wind is blowing strong
I took a deep breath to repeat my prayers
Been standing there for so long

Feeling the wind and sensing its power
But never flying away
My eyes kept crying, blind and afraid
Uncertainty made me stay

"Please open my eyes and make me see
Show me that I can fly
Cause what if the wind won't carry me
Show me, and then I'll try"

No one is supposed to fly by themselves
But you are the only one who owns the power to let go

But I've heard of a man who trusted the wind
to carry him over the cliff
A man with no vision, battered and blind
But the wind had made him live

"So please lift me up and take me through
Carry me to that land
How long do you want to leave me here?
Lift me from where I stand"

No one is supposed to fly by themselves
But you are the only one who owns the power to let go

One foot on the fear and one in the trust
The wind is dying down
"Why don't you answer, why don't you lift?
I thought you could do what you want"

No one is supposed to fly by themselves
But you are the only one who owns the power to let go
Track Name: I Won't Give Up
I Won't Give Up

If my love to you was real
Would you taste it? Would you feel?
If my smile should fade away
Would you notice? Would you stay?

You've got your reasons
And I've got mine
Some things won't heal over time

I won't give up
Not before there's an ending
I won't say stop
'Till the day you stop pretending

Don't expect a warm embrace
If I get your double face
I've been thinking twice again
Would you ever be my friend?

You've got your reasons
And I got mine
Some things won't heal over time

I won't give up
Not before there's an ending
I won't say stop
'Till the day you stop pretending

This battle is not over. Though I know we're going slower, we can still get to know one another.
We could be like sister and brother, but you wouldn't bother to embrace.
Not even the days where I was in your face.
You'd run away so quick, to pull a trick and have your memories erased.
I know it takes the two of us to be this ludicrous
To put mine and yours entire love at stake.
See. If freedom was free, than what would life be?
Then could anyone just take my love and forsake me.
No I'll pay the pale price of responsibility,
to be stuck for better or worse in love, just you and me.
I may loose the will to love, but Gods heart will always be LOVE

I won't give up
Not before there's an ending
I won't say stop
'Till the day you stop pretending
Track Name: Gift Of Love
GIFT OF LOVE

He was a man of pity
Who used the days to drift
He wasn't wise or witty
And had no special gifts

He wasn't educated
Had no athletic pose
His voice was overrated
And so the story goes

But he had the gift of love
And he gave it to me
Now I can sing this song
For all of us to see

They say he had a vision
To love until the end
A fools ill-fated mission
I'd never comprehend

He met me at the corner
Of Drought and Hopeless street
He gave me of his water
Despite my cold deceit

'Cause he had the gift of love
And he gave it to me
Now I can sing this song
For all of us to see

He knew I once abandoned
His house in pure despise
That was when he first commanded me
To rid me of my lies

Then he tried a couple times
To put loving into rhymes
And he was looking for some signs
All in vain

He forgot those words again
Just to love and be a friend.
Instead he wanted to explain
All in vain

Then he remembered...

He had the gift of love
And he gave it back to me
Now I can sing this song
For all of us to see

Oh, his love
He gave it to me
Now I can sing this song
For all of us to see

We have the gift of love
