Don Brownrigg - How Are You Supposed to Know

 

Artist

Don Brownrigg writes heartfelt, atmospheric, moody songs that showcase his smooth baritone, bug-in-your-brain melodies, and evocative lyrics that let listeners find a little something of themselves.

That connection is evidenced in the success of Brownrigg’s first two albums. “Sweet Dream Sleeper,” the first single from It Takes All Kinds… hit number one on the East Coast Countdown radio show, was a top five hit on CBC Radio Two’s Top Twenty Countdown, and “Breathe” found placement on television shows like Blacklist and American Idol.

Brownrigg’s songs have been streamed more than 1.4 million times on Spotify, and half a million times on Youtube. Brownrigg has played for audiences at the Calgary Folk Festival, World Pride, the Regina Folk Festival, and the Halifax Pop Explosion, and has supported artists like Serena Ryder, Great Lake Swimmers, and Shawn Colvin.

Lyrics

A picture of yourself
Armed with all you'll know
Stabbing through the dark
For a place to go
It's the pages, it's the past
It's the roots that trip that grow

Search yourself for something
For something you've not done
Bothered off and living
A life of your own
In the city where convenience
Is the throw of a stone

How are you supposed to know?
How you are supposed to go?

So you take to living
Living is all you've got
Dodge the fake and fiending
And all the things you're not
All the love you'd give
But your heart's still un-caught

How are you supposed to know?
How you are supposed to go?
If you'd take the time to cut once you measure twice
To find out the best things to know
A dream in rewind like you're a man of the mice
To find out the best way to go
Wouldn't that be nice if you could cut once you measured twice?

How are you supposed to know?
How you are supposed to go?

Testo

Una tua foto
Armato di tutto ciò che saprai
Pugnalare nel buio
Per un posto dove andare
Sono le pagine, è il passato
Sono le radici quel viaggio che crescono

Cerca te stesso per qualcosa
Per qualcosa che non hai fatto
Disturbato e vivente
Una vita tutta tua
Nella città dove la convenienza
È il lancio di una pietra

Come dovresti saperlo?
Come dovresti andare?

Quindi ti prendi per vivere
Vivere è tutto ciò che hai
Schiva il falso e il demone
E tutte le cose che non sei
Tutto l'amore che daresti
Ma il tuo cuore è ancora non catturato

Come dovresti saperlo?
Come dovresti andare?
Se ti prendi il tempo di tagliare una volta misuri due volte
Per scoprire le cose migliori da sapere
Un sogno in rewind come se fossi un uomo dei topi
Per scoprire il modo migliore per andare
Non sarebbe bello se potessi tagliare una volta misurato due volte?

Come dovresti saperlo?
Come dovresti andare?
