Matrimony Charlotte, North Carolina

MATRIMONY
It’s said that a great band is like a gang or perhaps a family, united by music, sweat, passion, and blood. That is certainly the case with Matrimony, an exhilarating new band whose interpersonal connections run far deeper than your average combo. Fronted by the husband and wife duo of Ashlee Hardee Brown and Jimmy Brown, the Charlotte, North Carolina - read more www.matrimonync.com ... ... more

Track Name: Last love
You conquered me when you let me be
When you let me be

Though you’re my first love you’re my last love
And although I am young I will never outgrow
My love for you, I will never give you up

I didn’t think that it was possible for me to love a man
Never thought that I would find one I’d be able to stand
The first day I met you I said I’ll marry him

You conquered me when you let me be
When you let me be

Take my love and take my time
Tell your love she’s dear
Tell her you will marry her
She will say love you’re the only man I see
The one who holds me tightly
Take my love I’ll write it down
I’ll tell you in your ear, your ear

I used to never trust a man who said he’d never give me up
I’m thinking I was right, it was a healthy disbelief
You’re a man who knows how to make his words true

So you are far away I only have your letters to soothe me
I’ll be looking in your face love in this place very soon
Three long weeks so you’ve been gone
And now you’re almost here, now you’re almost here

Take my love and take my time
Tell your love she’s dear
Tell her you will marry her
She will say I’m here
You’re the only man I see
The one who holds me tightly
Take my love I’ll write it down
I’ll tell you in your ear, your ear
I’ll tell you in your ear
Track Name: Flee Or Fight
Memories are all I have
That's what makes it so sad

It's such a crying shame
When old friends become estranged

You broke my heart
Was of my guard
You kicked me out
You blackened my name, you blackened my name

Oh but I have turned and gone my way
The snow has gone as have those days
I'm on the road less traveled by
I feel at home on the path unknown, on the path unknown

Navigate through your pain
Or else you'll remain the same

Will you flee or will you fight
Will you take your chances tonight

But I have turned and gone my way
The snow has gone as have those days x 2
I'm on the road less traveled by
I feel at home on the path unknown
Yea I'm on the road less traveled by
I feel at home, home, home
On the path unknown
Track Name: More
Hold you head up high
Don't you tell us lies

More all you really want is more
To get you through the night

Lay your burdens down
We all have broken crowns


More all you really want is more
To get you through the night
Track Name: The Storm & The Eye
I’ve been looking for some truth to sort out the mess in my head
But I haven’t found it in me or in man
Some say they want truth in order to sound sane
But would they choose to have it if to have truth you choose pain
To be weak is to be human to be humble is to gain

I hide in the open wide as the young forsake the wise
I abide in the storm and the eye
Death removed me from its sight
­­­­­­­­­­­­­
I am longing for the hour when the dark will subside
My hope needs to be strengthened every moment of the light
But I see a haven for my weakened soul
Where I know the shadow has no where to fall
And even in the morning I will wake unto my call

I hide in the open wide as the young forsake the wise
Love again your broken life
Death has turned away its eyes
Death has turned away its eyes
Track Name: One Last Dance
Cold dark nights have forced me to your door
Master take me in for I am sore

Honestly I can tell you I've been running from my fears

Loss has dulled the color in my eyes
Dreams have died for sake of precious pride

Honestly I can tell you I've been running from my fears
But with certainty I will tell you what is true, true for me

I know the feeling of peace is something to protect
I know I'll follow the truth, truth that's in my heart
Strike down my reckless reprise and move on in me
Rapture the will of my soul and rave on in me
But keep me near, keep me near 


I have turned my back on hopeless romance
But I have conjured up one last dance

Honestly I can tell you I've been crying with no tears
But with certainty I will tell you what is still true for me

I know the feeling of peace is something to protect
I know I'll follow the truth, truth that's in my heart

Strike down my reckless reprise and rave on in me
Rapture the will of my soul
Broaden the view of my mind

But keep me near, keep me near 

Track Name: Who Is Your God
You were a man with gold in your hands
I could never understand
When I was a child you laid stone day and night
For your family to provide

Loyal I will stand
Even if you’ve empty hands

You were a man who lived his days to find
The holy way of life
Who is your God, who has He become
Does he leave your lips stained at night

Mind and spirit are at war
The battle is not by sword
Won’t you allow the Spirit speak
‘Cause mind is fickle, mind is weak, mind is weak

I still believe in the promise you made
No one can take that away
I know your heart I know your way
You’re still the man I love

Who are you now with blood from your brow
You’re the man who took his vow
Wounds in your sides, blue and black eyes
I hear my sire in the sound of your cry

I hope that all the faith of me would be
Enough to revive the life left in him
My hope for him will never fade away
Though he stands so far away, away from me


I still believe in the promise you made
No one can take that away
I know your heart, I know your ways
You’re still the man I love, you’re still the man I love

Fire all over you, if you choose
To know again, to know the truth
Fire all over you
