about

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

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.

lyrics

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
