This week’s song of the week is Jay Brannan’s cover of Terra Naomi’s “Say It’s Possible.” Brannan recently put out his new Cd, In Living Color. Although “Say It’s Possible” is not the first single off the album (“The Freshmen,” his cover of the Verve Pipe song is) this song is currently my favorite track on the album (though “The Freshmen” is amazingly good!).

I found this video on YouTube, which features Terra Naomi singing along with Brannan first in private and then at a concert:

I don’t know Naomi’s music, but I might check it out after seeing this video. I think she has a great voice. Brannan is coming to Columbus on Wednesday. PJ and I were going to go, but I don’t think we’ll be able to now.

I’ll admit that when I first heard Brannan’s music I thought it was little too coffeshop for me. Now I love it his quiet acoustic sound. He’s definitely more than just a pretty face or hot body. (He was pretty, hot, and a great actor in Cameron Mitchell’s Shortbus). I’m enjoying the new album and can’t wait for his next video.

I’ll post the lyrics after the break.

I see the lights are turning and I look outside
The stars are burning through this changing time
It could have been anything we want
It’s fine, salvation was just a passing thought
It was just a passing thought

Don’t wait, act now
This amazing offer won’t last long
It’s only a chance to pave the path we’re on
I know there are more exciting things to talk about
And in time we’ll sort it out
And in time we’ll sort it out

And though they say it’s possible
To me, I don’t see how it’s probable
I see the course we’re on spinning farther from what I know
I’ll hold on
Tell me that you won’t let go
Tell me that you won’t let go

And the truth is such a funny thing
With all these people
Keep on telling me
They know what’s best
And what to be frightened of
And all the rest are wrong
They know nothing about us
They know nothing about us

And though they say it’s possible
To me, I don’t see how it’s probable
I see the course we’re on spinning farther from what I know
I’ll hold on
Tell me that you won’t let go
Tell me that you won’t let go

I’m not alright

And though they say it’s possible
To me, I don’t see how it’s probable
I see the course we’re on spinning farther from what I know
I’ll hold on
Tell me that you won’t let go

And though they say it’s possible
To me, I don’t see how it’s probable
I see the course we’re on spinning farther from what I know
I’ll hold on
Tell me that you won’t let go
Tell me that you won’t let go

This could be something beautiful
Combine our love into something wonderful
But times are tough I know
And the pull of what we can’t give up takes hold
