Let them know who you are

from by Ro Halfhide



Jazz arrangement, done by Joris Bijleveld.
Recorded in his studio in Deventer.


My family it is Halfhide
And you can ask around
That name is also yours to take
And of that you can be proud

My name it is Louise
You got it written on your chest
There ain't not a single policeman
Who can deny I love you best

If you long for heaven's shelter
And you want to spend the night
Be sure that I prepared for you
A seat right at my side
All you have to do
Once you travelled up that far
Let 'em know who you are my friend
Let 'em know who you are

Let 'em know who you are my friend
Let 'em know who you are

A new friend sometimes tells me
I am worth my while
Even though I know this
It's been hard to keep a smile

Well the 1st thing I found in this thing my Lord
the message is coming clear
You should know the fear by now
You should know the fear

I was locked into your arms my dear
I was left into your fate
There's so much more that I would wanna say
But I love you every day

Well the night is coming close my dear
I feel you every night
I sit awake and I dream of you
I hope you hold a light

I haven't seen you around now
And I guess you won't be mine
Even if you won't be having me
I'll see you in the sweet by and by

Have you heard the mockingbird sing
In the still dead of the night?
He's saying:

Let 'em know who are my friend
Let 'em know who you are
