Brett Dennen - There Is So Much More Lyrics

When I heard the news,
my heart fell on the floor.
I was on a plane on my way to Baltimore.
In these troubled times it's hard enough as it is.
My soul has a known a better life than this.

I wonder how so many can be in so much pain,
while others don't seem to feel a thing.
Then I curse my whiteness
and I get so damn depressed.
In a world of suffering,
why should I be so blessed?

I heard about a women who lives in Colorado.
She built a monument of sorts behind the garage door,
where everyday she prays for all whom are born
and all whose souls have passed on.
Sometimes my trouble gets so thick,
I can't see how I'm gonna get through it.
But, then I'd rather be stuck up in a tree
then be tied to it.

There is so much more.

I don't feel comfortable with the way my clothes fit.
I cant get used to my body's limits.
I got some fancy shoes to try and kick away these blues.
They cost a lot of money but they aren't worth a thing.
I wanna free my feet from the broken glass and concrete.
I need to get out of this city.
Lay upon the ground stare a hole in the sky,
wondering where I go when I die.
...When I die.

Brett Dennen There Is So Much More Comments
  1. Jacyara Alves

    Quando soube das notícias
    Meu coração caiu no chão
    Eu estava num avião a caminho de Baltimore
    Nesses tempos conturbados, já é bem difícil como é,
    Minha alma conheceu vida melhor que esta

    Eu me perguntei quantos poderiam estar com tanta dor,
    Enquanto outros pareciam não sentir nada
    Então eu amaldiçoo minha sabedoria e fico muito deprimido
    Em um mundo de sofrimento por que eu devo ser tão abençoado?

    Eu soube de uma mulher que vive no Colorado
    Ela construiu uma espécie de monumento atrás da porta da garagem
    Onde todos os dias ela reza para todos aqueles que haviam nascido e para todos cujas almas já haviam partido
    Às vezes meu problema fica tão denso
    Que eu não consigo ver como eu vou passar por ele
    Mas então eu preferiria estar preso no topo de uma árvore
    Do que amarrado a ela.

    Eu sei
    Há muito mais.

    Eu não me sinto confortável com o jeito como minhas roupas me servem.
    Não consigo me acostumar com os limites do meu corpo.
    Eu tenho uns sapatos luxuosos para experimentar e chutar pra longe essa tristeza,
    Eles custam uma fortuna, mas não valem absolutamente nada
    Quero libertar meus pés do vidro quebrado e do concreto.
    Preciso dar o fora dessa cidade,
    Deitar no chão e e encarar um buraco no céu
    Me perguntando para onde eu vou quando morrer,
    Quando eu morrer...

    That line about the woman in Colorado floors me no matter how many times I hear it.


    from New Amsterdam's E1 S2

  4. Isaac Bobonis

    Hannah banana

    Larry Romero

    Larry Romero

    Hannah Williams keep looking up cause that’s where it all is-this too will pass : )


    Yup. Dr. Frome giving his crocs to a homeless woman.

    Ashley hand

    Can’t wait!! Love the show and going to see Brett in concert this year!

  5. Pappa Michael

    I heard this for the first time today in the car. Hauntingly familiar, such depth of insight. Great song, very nicely composed.

  6. Dustin Short

    White knight self pity

  7. Philip Murray

    An ode to Brett's white guilt and virtue signaling

  8. Don Blackburn

    I have never heard such a bad job of lyrics or such a whiney vocal line as this song. I got a link to this song to encourage a songwriter friend that he is better than this and this song got air play.

    marcelo N

    Don I got a link to your father in the past, kindly asked him not to procreate with your mother to avoid putting such a tasteless, bland, judgmental human being on this earth. I hope he listened

  9. fairys rule

    Love the vibe yeah it good

  10. jade10


  11. Sydney Mager

    Love ❤️

  12. heavy books

    So sad comments have just all but stopped! This song is so powerful especially in the current state of our society!

  13. shroompicker23

    "Then I Curse My Whiteness" Moron

    Pappa Michael

    I do not think it is because he hates his whiteness but the empathy he feels towards others that do not have it as good, it is a metaphor to indicate that some have more obstacles than others, it is hard to convey feelings into words in the condensation of a song. Clearly the Man is not a moron, how many songs have you written?

    marcelo N

    Pappa Michael don’t waste your breath on idiots

    Ryan Weible

    @Pappa Michael right, cursing your whiteness is not hatred of yourself, its understanding that a lot of people have less than you, and they have that lack not because they deserve less, but because of a trait they were born with. its bull, anyone with a real sense of fairness would feel the same, but some are unable to see humanity in people who look marginally different than them. also, when you get a bad sunburn.

    Pappa Michael

    @Ryan Weible Perhaps he should eat some of those shrooms he picks and open up his mind to free thought?

  14. Yousuf Vlogs

    this song though

  15. wksoh

    So beautiful!!

  25. Dm Reynolds

    I wonder how so many could be in so much pain, while others don't seem to feel a thing.

    Sal Circelli

    +Dm Reynolds I agree, Dm, this is maybe my favorite song from Brett. I'm 67 and love playing and singing this song and that line gets me every time.

  26. Tally Tolbert

    BEST SONG EVER!!!!!!!!!

  27. myoopoo

    This reminds me of Passenger's Feather on the Clyde

    Kyle Anderson

    +myoopoo I didn't realize that until now. Love Passenger, especially their old stuff. Walk You Home (Night Vision Binoculars) is probably my favorite song of theirs.

    Molly Whitmire


  28. nocturnallyinsane

    Good bye Chris...I'll always miss you. This song reminds me of you.

  29. Gibson1961SG

    You're up set about something out of your control? Your upset about having a good life? Dont be.. just recognize that there are others who dont and share your kindness with them, dont waste time by complaining about how you wish you could be guilt free by suffering along with them.


    Blessed Be to that I say .
    just help out where you can give what you got to give and be happy with your great life and music you Rock Kid keep it up

  30. Gibson1961SG

    Du Noharm

  31. Christine Crossley

  33. Harris Gardner

    This song always stops me when heard on Pandora. Its wonderful. Thank you, Harris

  34. Robert Parham

    I discovered Brett on a Carson Daly show feature a few years ago. His music is so rich. This song is . . . so interesting and full of texture.

  35. soad11813

    He proves gingers have souls

  36. Smashing Make Believe

    This is one of the best singer/songwriters I have ever heard. Ain't No Reason is still my favorite.

  37. TheHansGaertner

    The one guy that disliked it.< Everyone else

  38. Hostal TresTresTres

    Why do I have to be white?! Damn my whiteness! Why can't i be black or brown, or yellow and suffer? Why should i be so blessed?! WHY?! WHY?!

  39. alexleitch37

    what a wonderful message to receive, I will think of you AprilShowers the next time I play brett's music......... a song is so powerful, so majestic, no wonder the angels sang at the birth of Jesus - for though they knew him intimately they had no idea he was about to become a human (and a helpless baby at that).. surely that were singing out in praise of God "there is so much more" and more to come..... for no eye has seen and no heart imagined the perfection in the soon coming Glory of God :)

  40. m3rcur1u5

    it's like the 25th time i'm playing this song today. and it's everyday like that damn it

  41. Matt Dawkins

    great song, but from the angle of the picture in the video he looks kind of like Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys

  42. MarkPMus

    @cosmiccoolgirl Don't know, sorry, I try to ignore adverts.

  43. cosmiccoolgirl

    Is this song in an advert?

  44. Lucas Montenegro

    @alexleitch37 I feel you man. This song is sooo deep, Brett himself says that it's the best song he ever did. I don't know how to play it yet, but just by hearing I can feel a gentle kind of inner peace, a confidence in life, and a relief to know that I'm not alone in my sorrows and doubts about everything. Very few artists can put their soul in their art like Brett does, if this is not talent, I sincerely don't know what talent is.

  45. Eeba Ali

    GINGERS DO HAVE SOULS! (haha sorry, had to)
    awesome lyrics, awesome song

  46. nikko mahor

    brett dennen's songs are very much like christian songs short of referring to God or Jesus...

  47. Andrew McClure

    getting tickets for when he plays at the pageant in st louis. can't wait.

  48. XXgoblinmonkeyXX

    i need tickets for the ramshead live show.

  49. leighboom

    first heard this song off greys anatomy love it

  50. leighboom

    greys anatomy season three episode 7 sad as hell when this song played. i love it though

  51. alexleitch37

    I have 80 gigs of itunes music to pick from. I play this song over and over and over and over. There is something in it that just sets me free. If I wrote 1,000,000 songs I would never ever come close to the perfection of this song. After hearing it (and I mean really hearing it) I no longer "wonder where I'll go when I die" Brett has taken me there already and moth and rust can not steal me from that place, I am with my treasures in Heaven. God bless Brother Brett with humility and grace. Al

  52. hawtnesszz

    Cool, really?

  53. MarkPMus

    Cool! I have enjoyed hearing the stuff about the Radiophonic workshop today on Radio 4.

  54. ravensmead

    Love what you're doing.....
    i"m ex BBC Sound Man....

  55. MarkPMus

    He is not that well-known here! I saw a review of this CD in a Hifi magazine and thought I'd try it out. I am going to see him on Monday, but it is not at a well-known venue.
