about

Norine Braun Vancouver, British Columbia

Her signature funky folk-blues sound simply cannot be matched. Best listened to as loud as your neighbours will tolerate. Abortmag

Her music sounds like the union of Nick Cave with Patti Smith & City and Colour deep in the Canadian forests.
MTM

An imaginative display of fine musicianship, potent vocals and heartfelt lyrics, talent like hers doesn't exactly come around too often. Music Emission

Track Name: Crystallize
Stay awake November dream The mist is on the rise If you dance around a clouded wink There’s distance in the skies You could wash away soiled tears Give them alibis You will find the word on baby’s breath The mystery is in the why’s For all the wounds, all the wear, all the fools Forget them All the hopes, all the dreams in all the stars Forget them Even if a shadow falls Oh the wonder lifts you high You can glide Crystallize Harmonize We come together In the night time you shine like ebony Fragrant you are my ecstasy Drift along a sandy brook Mischievous you glide Get all tangled in the underbrush It catches by surprise You can free the knot you find yourself The slip is in the try You can glide Crystallize Harmonize We come together In the night time you shine like ebony Fragrant you are my ecstasy Wash away soiled tears Wash away soiled tears Wash away soiled tears © Norine Braun 2006
Track Name: The Perfect Love Affair
The Perfect Love Affair

When I am weary

And I am teased

I keep looking for something

Something’s looking for me

I’m not too busy

I am not too proud

I guess I’m just lonely

I’ll say it out loud



I need a distraction

I need an okay

That I’m still desired

I’ll swing and I’ll sway

I’m a bold looking cougar

I join the cub’s play

I’m looking for something

That leads me astray



Eyes that haunt me

Lips that taunt me

Arms around me

Love it drowns me

I have waited hesitated

For you dear and now you’re here

It’s true the perfect love oh love affair

The perfect love, the perfect love oh love affair



A voice it calls me

Whispers softly

Hold me closely

Kiss me gently

I have waited hesitated

For you dear and now you’re here

It’s true the perfect love oh love affair

The perfect love the perfect love oh love affair
Track Name: Paint
PAINT
©Norine Braun SOCAN
Been walking down these streets
So dirty, dark and grey
Looking for a rainbow to chase my clouds away
I always needed sunshine
More than I need pain

An artist man he saw me
And this is what he said
Can always change your blues
Need only paint them red
Never look for details
Look for love instead

Then I saw someone’s eyes
Who wore no disguise
Colours came alive
Vibrant was the night
The moon embraced the sky

Feeling the thick of it
Nothings for sure
I am in spite of things
Fighting the floor

But I’ll get used to this
You know I‘ll beg you for more
And I’ll get rid of it
You know we’ll even the score
If you don’t speak of things
I’ll ask you no more
Yes I’ll get used to this
You know I’ll beg you for more

Track Name: Gently
GENTLY
Oh gently, she said gently for your soul Gently, find the path and where to go Don't lose direction You know there's always hope Open up doors, examine all that's close She had to learn how to fight Taking chances in the night She had lost herself again She couldn't play those heavy games Gently, gently for your soul Gently, find the path and where to go Don't lose direction You know there's always hope Open up doors, examine all that's close She knew she was far She couldn't get back so easily She would organize her sources She would try to break the chains Gently, gently for your soul Gently, find the path and where to go Don't lose direction You know there's always hope Open up doors, examine all that's close She wouldn't give up the struggle She wouldn't cash in all her chips She would finally realize She's got fire inside her eyes Gently, gently for your soul Gently, find the path and where to go Don't lose direction You know there's always hope Open up doors, examine all that's close Gently, gently for your soul Gently ©Norine Braun SOCAN All Rights Reserved
Track Name: Chasing Light
CHASING LIGHT Chasing light through scattered showers/And I've been hurt before
Licorice lips that only teased me/And I've been hurt before
Eyes evade my steamy glances/And I've been hurt before
Your eyes have got me racing
Fading dreams escape me waking/I've been hurt before
Vows are broken but no one's known/And I've been hurt before
Wanting this but getting that/And I've been hurt before
Your eyes have got me racing
Small talk/Click off/I got such high ideals
You got something more than just sex appeal
Idolation, blind elation/Hide my soul fixation
Attach myself on speculation
I'll watch your backbone slide/You watch me get inside
Repeat first verse and tag Repeat spoken rhyme

Track Name: Move The Clouds
Move The Clouds
Two ravens circled overhead
A feather fluttered down and led
Me to the beach
Where you were there
And for a moment I was 10
My hands in pocket
A stupid grin
I said hello, you said goodbye
You couldn't stay for long
Time had come, calling you in psalms
I stumbled fast to get away
The waves came crashing down to say
This is a chance to give away
How I move the clouds
I could show you how I can move the clouds
With all the courage I could muster up
I ran back to you and said look up
I'll sing these songs then watch the sky
I can move the clouds
I can move the clouds
You said it was a sign that we should meet that day
Your blue eyes glistened in a most peculiar way
And I'll hang on to all that you said
And I'll hang on to all that we did
You said it was a sign that I could shape the sky
I learned impermanence and again must say goodbye
And I'll hang on to all that you said
And I'll hang on to all that we did
And I'll hang on to all that you said
Two ravens circled overhead
A feather fluttered down and led
Me to the beach
Where you were there
I can move the clouds
Where you were there I can move the clouds

Track Name: Fire Flames
The Fire Flames



Does it feel okay?

Or do you push away

When she touches you



You are slippery

A fool’s tongue gold

Hides blue risks mounting

Fortunes told



I am reigning

For this flight

We might get there

To heaven’s light

I am going

Lead the way

Freedom finds me

Redemption wanes



We are climbing

Into her veins

Betrayal washes

The fire flames



When you are not lying

And I stop crying



Does it feel okay?

Or do you push away

When she touches you, when she touches you

And is the writing on the wall

And whose name do you call

In the heat of the night

In the heat of the night



I am going lead the way

Freedom finds me

Redemption wanes



We are climbing

Into her veins

Betrayal washes

The fire flames, the fire flames…..
Track Name: Skylight
You and me lost under the skylight
You told me it would take all night
Persuade me I begged you
Hiding my eyes
Hoping you were looking at the moon
You and me lost in some fantasy
One of my own accord
Reality is too scary
My dreams unprepared
My silent wishes
Just weren’t sure
You and me lost under the skylight
Hiding from what we really need
Finding words enough to say
You and me lost under the skylight
Persuade me I begged you
Hiding my eyes
Hoping you were looking at the moon
You and me lost under the skylight
Fighting this emotion that drowns
You touched In me
Something undisturbed
