Brett Detar - Please Don’t Go Away Like That

you say “a true heart can’t be tamed, love’s like one foot in the grave”
you “won’t be tied down to a cage”
all things i never thought you’d say
but i won’t keep any chains wrapped around you
so run away if you must, i won’t stop you

I’m really happy about these double lp’s of my new record. I’m only pressing 100 copies but I think she looks gorgeous. The pre-order just started at my website (that includes all the other standard fare as well - cd’s, t-shirts, posters, etc). If you order some stuff I’ll love you forever (but I already do).

Also, I'm wondering if "Satan's Foot On My Neck" has already been released somewhere, or if it will be in the future. (I heard it on a promo for an episode of Supernatural and loved it too, sounds great!) Thank you, and keep doin' what you're doin'! :-)

thank you kindly…  here it is.  here it is.  :)  enjoy and thanks for the kind words

I’d love you forever if you listen to and share my new single “Satan’s Foot On My Neck” here! Thank you. Thank you!!
