about

Mike Higbee New York, New York

thedelimagazine.com says: "Mike Higbee is the ghost of Roy Orbison riding on Hank Williams' horse over to the saloon for a cold, hard drink. A man who most likely grew up listening to the King from his hometown of Paris, and dreaming of the 'Donna' of Ritchie Valens' genius, Higbee has resurrected the spirit of Nashville for New York in his latest LP 'Secret Life.'

Track Name: Secret Life
SECRET LIFE

At first I was impressed
She was really lovely
But bit by bit I saw
That she didn't really love me
And every time I asked for more
I saw her sinful smile
Walk out the door
And I could tell that I’d never know
But I was young
And I didn't know

She had a secret life
She was really lovely
But with a doubting heart
It was hard for her to love me
And in the rain
She bled real hard
I never saw her pain
I'd gone too far
Yeah I could see
This girl would leave a scar
But I was young
And I didn't know

Drown in your secrets my dear
I thought that I knew you
I thought I knew you dear

But bit by bit I saw
The writing on the wall
And all the time I knew
Your secrets and your flaws
And after all
You were all I saw

When I was young
When I was young
A song like this

When I was young
When I was young
A song like this

And then I saw her drift away
Track Name: Love Letter
LOVE LETTER

Love isn't quite the lie that we were promised
I didn't see you drift away my love
I don't know many truths
I don't have answers
But I know
I'm in love with you

And baby
I didn't catch your fall
I know I started it all
And it doesn't make it right
But you put up a good fight
And isn't that what we always do

So baby
Come back home to me
Be the love of my life
We can be free
You'll see
That I really do
Love you
Track Name: Wandering Streets
WANDERING STREETS

I walk the floors at night and try to know
If we can work it out I still don't know
Are you the kind of woman that I want
With me
For all

I wander on these streets and I’m with you
And I can't help myself I follow you
I wonder why I’m feelin paranoid
Inside this house of mine
I don't know what to do with this heart of mine

And

I can always hope to be with you
I can always hope to live this crazy life with you
I just can't tell if you would want that too
And yes I do, cause I love you
I like to be, with you, and I love you
And I don't know what to

I don't know what to do when I’m with you
I get so nervous feel like I am loosing you
I don't know what to say or what to do
Yeah here we are
You're so hot and cold
Did you know
I couldn't say I love you anymore
I didn't know I didn't know you anymore
Your love was wasted and I didn't know

I like to hope, I like to think that we'll be one
That one day we will have little ones and fun
I like to hope I like to be with you
And I love you
And that's true
I like to be
With you
And I love you
Why can't I be with you I want to be with you
And I don't know what to do
Track Name: Where Do We Go To Be Alone?
WHERE DO WE GO TO BE ALONE

Where do we go
How does it end
What happens now to both of us
It's come to an end

You're everywhere
You’re in my dreams
You'll probably never know the story
That lead to this end

And now I run
And now I hide
From all those moments that we had
Livin in the same house

I think I’ll go
And let you be now
I think you know that it wasn’t
A fall out of love
And so, so where do we go to be alone
So, so where do we go to be alone

I want to call
I want to see you
I want to be with be with you yeah be with you

What have I done
Why let you go
You were the sweetest little thing
You're so beautiful

I guess I’m dumb
I am a fool
For letting idiotic visions
Get between us two

I think I’ll go and let you be now
I think you know that it wasn't
A fall out of love
And so, so where do we go to be alone
So, so where do we go to be alone

It's all the dreams
The kids it seems
Were all good reasons to go and be alone

I hope you know
The love that's there
It doesn't change no matter how much I want it to end

Maybe one day
When things are better
It will be possible to see you without being sad
Just one more thing
And then I’m done
I hope you know that it wasn't a fall out of love.

And so, so where do we go to be alone
So, so where do we go to be alone
So, so where do we go to be alone
So, so where do we go to be alone
Track Name: Hotel Lights
HOTEL LIGHTS

There's blue in all these hotel lights
The thought of you makes morning bright
But you tell me to go off
And ask me to fight
My desire to see you
And it all goes

We never tried to fall in love
It's you I can't stop thinking of
And I’m stuck on that moment
We stole from this life
When you told me your wonders
And all about
Your secret life
Your secret life
And I ask you if you'll stay
But you leave
You go away
Track Name: All I Should Have Told You
ALL I SHOULD HAVE TOLD YOU

These are the ends for me
I'm sorry I have to leave you
These are the ends for me

These the ends for me
I'm sorry I have to hurt you
All of your life to see
It isn't me

And all of my life I will think of
The way you were
And never sure
Of all that I lost
These are all the things that I should have told you
That I didn't know to

And all of my life I will think of
The damage done
The knee jerk run
Away from it all
These are all the things that I should have told you
That I didn't know
And you should have said no

But there was something in the air
I needed to see
The power to be
Everything and everywhere I could be
These are all the things that I should have told you
That I didn't know and you should have said no

But there was something in the air
I needed to see
Yeah I needed to be
be free
These are all the things that I should have told you

That I didn't know
And all of my secrets
And all of my life I would know

These are all the things that I should have told you
That I didn't know
And all of my secrets
And all of my life I would know

These are the ends for me
I'm sorry I have to leave you
All of your life to see
And to be
Yeah all of our secrets
All of our secrets to be
Track Name: Toi et moi
TOI ET MOI

Wherever you are
Wherever you go
Wherever I am
I'll do all I can

Et ou que tu soi
Et ou que ce soi
J'irais apres toi
Sans peur des degats

J'ai comme une idee
J'ai comme une envie
C'est tout un desir
Tu a sucite

And all of my life
And no matter what
I'll always be there
I'll wait in your chair

Je f'rais tout ce que j'peux
Pour qu'tu sois heureuse/x
On fera des enfants
Des p'tits garnements

On ira au lit
J'te f'rais des calins
On fera l'amour
Du soir au matin

It's taking too long
I know I was wrong
But I need you now
And you feel so far

I don't want to fight
I just want to love
I'm in love with you
And I promise you

So long as I live
So long as I breathe
I'll take care of you
My poor malheureuse/x

You are the love of my life

Blow your money on these foolish things
Don't look around
You might see everything
But you take care of me
Underground

And I’m going blind
I just never think to be alarmed
And without doubt
I go on going on

And now you disappear
For days
What happened to the love
What happened to your face
I present to you exhibit A
A pretty girl
She’s chasing unicorns
A do you think of her
In your daze
It’s painted all around
It’s painted on your face
And did she think that she would see the world
You’re blue from guilt
You’re blue Joni’s hurt

You are the love of my life
You are the love of my life
You are the love of my life
The love of my life
The love of my life

You are the love of my life

Yeah how many times
You looked at me
You looked me in the eye said I’m sorry baby
Well I just can't do this
Anymore
And I know it's not your fault
We’ve been through this before
And I told you many times
We could be happy
That there was no other place
I would rather be than with you
But now I’m done I am done I can't do this anymore
Such is life live your life I can’t take it anymore

You are the love of my life
You are the love of my life
You are the love of my life
The love of my life
The love of my life

You are the love of my life

Track Name: The Waltz of Dead Love
THE WALTZ OF DEAD LOVE

I
Didn't know
How cruel you were
And how
Could I know
Who you really were

And now
I dream of
Your lips
And your kiss
You haunt in silence
I even miss your cigarettes
And all our secrets
I know I will regret
But how could anyone know
Yeah I guess it wasn't just any kind of love

So now what
How do I
Live
Without you
So let's wait
Wait to be friends
Until I stop
Loving you

And now
I've lost you
I've never missed you more
I turn the corner
And it's you I’m looking for
I found your answer
Left in a broken drawer
But how could anyone know?
Yeah I guess it wasn't just any kind of love…

I had you
And your name
On my heart
Tattooed
So when
When does it end
I'll never be a friend

And now
I know it
We'll never
Ever be
Our hearts
In tandem
A broken set of dreams
You're all I wanted
You're all I’ll ever see
Does anyone know

I loved you
