about

Tip Jar The Netherlands

After having recorded some duets on Bart's solo albums, Bart and Arianne discovered that their voices blended in a natural way. They decided to create room for a duet based collaboration and that's how Tip Jar was born. Bart and Arianne started to write songs together, and recorded them in a pure and honest manner, always letting the essence and character of the song prevail. ... more

Track Name: Let go
If you're wond'ring why the world keeps changing
And if you're puzzled by the way we go
Before you even think of rearranging, let go
Running around on a tiny little splinter
Trying to slide into the perfect flow
After spring and summer we get winter, let go

I don’t want to miss the sun
When love feeds everyone
I don’t want to miss the sun
When love meets everyone
I don't want to miss the sun anymore

And if you're looking for a four leaved clover
In the field of weed that you and I know
You're running out of time but it's never over, let go
The universe knows some wicked ways of playing
Fate directing each and every show
But life is not about the debts you're paying, let go

Let's find a perfect way to live
Let's find a perfect way

Everybody's searching and everybody’s trying
Seize another day, and take it slow
But we can't keep the ones we love from crying, let go
Track Name: That's why
When I was still a little wide eyed girl
Just about the age of 5
I recall it gave my heart a twirl
When Emmylou sang about life
I knew back then, although I didn't see how
Where I wanted to go
And when I look into my heart right now
It's still the only thing I know

I stumbled on a song, it almost made me fly
But it took so long and I can't tell you why
It seemed so clear for so many years
I was just a child and the plan seemed wild
But that's why I'm standing here

I was lucky when a dream came true
But it didn't blow me away
Flying in a cage like a bird in a zoo
So I figured I couldn't stay
But when in Rome, it humbles me
I know exactly where I stand
Ancient tales touching me
Beauty by Italian hands

What a surprise, hard to trust my eye
I saw paradise, it almost made me cry
It seemed far off but it felt so near
They said I was smart but it had to be art
And that's why I'm standing here

What can I say, I've been running through life
Never thought I might be blind
I've been a friend, a mother, a lover and a wife
With just enough trouble on my mind
I was never scared to let it come in
It could feed me, but hurt me too
And when running turned into shuffeling
Voices pulled me through

I stumbled on a song, it almost made me fly
But it took so long and I can't tell you why
We made a move and shed a tear
But all that counts is how it sounds
And that's why I'm standing here
Track Name: We sing about love
I had a dream about what's coming
Birds were singing, bees were humming
And I just smiled all day through
And we held hands, I felt so close to you

Oh, it was real and we were one
We found the truth and shared the fun
We'll keep on going the long, long way
And gather sweet memories each and every day

We're all the same, searching for an open ear
We're all the same and we sing about love
We're all the same, giving words to what we hear
We're all the same and we sing about love

It started on a Monday, Tuesday we got the call
Next day we saw it growing, Thursday we had a ball
I felt like a millionaire with no bills to pay
People came from everywhere, the songs took them away

We sing about love, sing about love

If there's a heaven it might as well be here
Right here where we're standing with all we love so near
I dreamed about a future of love and equality
But every now and again it feels like reality
Just keep on giving, keep on receiving too
In the bigger scheme of things that's what we were meant to do
When we make a real connection we'll grow towards the light
So why embrace the dark while love feels so right
We'll keep on going the long, long way
We'll keep on going the long, long way
Track Name: She knew
With two feet in the waves
The future seemed so hard to read
She knew how to behave
But the truth splashed on her feet

We keep on wasting time
Like sand slipping through our toes
We struggle trying to climb
But down the hill it goes
The wind played with her hair
And blew the bars out of her head
The thoughts she couldn't share
Soaked off by the tears she shed

She had to listen to her heart
And she new right from the start
She closed her eyes and walked away
Cause there was nothing left to say
She didn't know, where to go
But deep down inside
She knew she was right

Lost in a dream
That released her inner flame
Nothing more than a gleam
The days all looked the same

And time keeps on dripping
Like water through our fingers
With all the days we're skipping
It feels like it never lingers
When a train keeps on going
It's hard to change the track
But with love softly glowing
There is no turning back
Track Name: Little bright light
I guess I'm a lucky bastard
With a life that can't go wrong
I travel around, I get free beers
And people seem to like my song
There's love around me, all day long
Don't you think that's great
There's so much going on to appreciate

Still I've got a little thing or two
Wandering through my brain
Nothing a good buzz can't conceal
It's not like I’ve missed the train
I feel like heading for the station
In a locomotion groove
And take a straight line to where I wanna move

I'm gonna sing out loud when I'll find my rainbow
I'm gonna jump and shout, tell everyone I know
What I'm talking about soon can't be forgotten
There's a little bright light ahead burning low

So many years I’ve messed around
And I'm still paying my dues
But everyone knows a man’s got to bleed
Before he can sing the blues
And each and every story
Escaping from my brain
Is true as hell, I really walked these shoes

I guess my ship's still lost at sea
Trying to find it's way
But at least I am where I want to be
And that's where I want to stay
Close to the crowd, close to your arms
And close to my heart I hope
This life I found between here and the stars
All around the globe
Track Name: Sunday blue
Sunday blue, rest your head on my shoulder
Sunday blue, I'll be here at your side
Someday soon you will find what you're looking for
Sunday blue, don't mind the tear in your eye

I will be your long lost lover
And I will be your friend
I will never look the other way
You can count on me till the very end

Sunday blue, time flies just the same for everyone
Sunday blue, there's aways trouble in your soul
Someday soon you'll find a way to give love a chance
And me and you might fill the empty hole

Sunday blue, rest your head on my shoulder
Sunday blue, I'll be here at your side

Sunday blue, time flies just the same for everyone
Sunday blue, there's aways trouble in you soul
But someday soon you'll find a way to give love a chance
And me and you will fill the empty hole
Track Name: Mary's comfort
I guess it’s weird, when you don't know
I'm sitting here, got nowhere to go
People talk, the words cut like knives
And it keeps them from looking at their own lives
From looking at their lives

They're passing by, every day
Silent strangers moving on their way
I see the fear and I feel sad
There was a time it would make me mad
I was always mad

Look at the old tree
It's been standing there for ages protecting me
I stare into the flame
Waiting for somebody who knows my name

I see her light, I feel her love
Mary's comfort and joy I've been dreaming of
Sit with me, nowhere to go
We'll be safe till the morning comes
Till the morning comes

I saw you, and you saw me
And we don't know when the next time will be
Ain’t it strange, how people touch
Sometimes it only takes that much
It only takes that much
Track Name: In between rains
In between rains the sun won't stop shining
And you can see the promised blue
In between rains the silver lining
Keeps me going straight back to you

In between rains we can't give up dreaming
Cause every change won't last too long
In between rains a light is gleaming
Like sparks of hope that'll make you strong

Down the road we must travel
Every color will fill our eye
Sometimes it’s diamonds, sometimes it's gravel
But the flowers will never die

In between rains I hear the laughter
Of love and life touching me
In between rains, before and after
Flowers grow just you wait and see

In between rains the sun won't stop shining
And you can see the promised blue
In between rains the silver lining
Keeps me going straight back to you
Track Name: Me and my girl
Once I met a sweet little butterfly
With a naugty little mind and pearly eyes
She was mine for a very little while
I lost my heart, I lost my head
I found some love and then she fled

I wasn't even mad, I was glad instead
Although the sweet little girl took all I had
I blessed her heart cause she'd been tearing me apart
I was fed, daily bread
Too much love nearly left me dead

Me and my girl kept on swinging
Me and my girl kept on singing
Me and my girl kept on swinging
Me and my girl, me and my girl

I remember what my mama used to say
Beware of the girls who only want to play
She was wise but didn't know about guys
I never knew bliss could feel like this
When you fall in love that's all there is

Never heard a word from my butterfly
Till a cute little angel brought a tear to my eye
She was poor and she was standing at my door
I had no doubt, it was clear to see
I fell in love she looked like me

Now me and my baby are getting along
And I learned to stop thinking 'bout right or wrong
She's a pearl, a sweet little girl
I'll tell you no lies, it wasn't wise
But when I found love she was the price

Me and my girl keep on swinging
Me and my girl keep on singing
Me and my girl keep on swinging
Me and my girl, me and my girl
Track Name: Mean Eyed Cat
I still remember, it was easy
Sitting around or dancing the night away
Drakes were steaming, girls were beaming
And we just let the music play

Cowgirls swinging with sleepy eyes
Spilling beer and digging songs
Starry night, sweet illusion
Of keeping music right where it belongs

I've been loving you this way forever
And I will always listen to your heart
You've been telling me it's now or never
And it’s never too late to start

Walking slowly, we're together
We just need to cross another street
Gage is playing, dancers swaying
And sweet Michelle knows exactly what we need

Monday music at the Depot
The Iron horse stopped running years ago
The city’s booming, concrete's blooming
We're just guessing where the music's gonna go

We need rhythm in the street
Track Name: Home sweet home
I'm carrying gear, and some beer
One foot's close to the brake
The music's playing loud and clear
Keeping me awake
And I'm wondering why I'm driving here
In the middle of the night
The beauty of a running deer
Startled by the light
I should be sleeping

I played many songs no one heard
Kind of made me feel like a jerk
To me nobody really said a word
Ain’t it funny how that works?
I recall there used to be a time
It was easy to bear
But now, being one of a dozen for a dime
Seems to be unfair
I should be sleeping

I'm going home, sweet home
Where I will find you
I'm going home, sweet home
In my arms
I'm going home, sweet home
Where I will find you in my arms

A crumbled man in a battered van
Not a sight for eyes so sore
But hey, I try the best I can
Sometimes a little bit more
No complaints, I am blessed
I sure know where to go
I've got a place where I find rest
And love and... well you know
I should be sleeping

In my arms I will try to keep you warm
I might even have a go at your feet
In my arms you'll be safe from any storm
Isn't that all we really need
Track Name: Everything's changing
Everything's changing
Everything's changing, all the time
Everything's changing
Everything's changing, all the time

5 turns into 9
A boy becomes a man
Almost overnight
He's trying the best he can
Remember 35
A girl without a plan
The road took another life
So hard to understand

Every place we've been
Is fading in the past
Every face you've seen
Weathers way too fast
Hold on to your soul
Through any kind of prayer
It will keep you safe
When no one seems to care

I see a change coming every time I breathe
I see a change coming
Track Name: The next song
If you want to get close with your baby
Here's what you gotta do
Write her a song and you can't go wrong
She'll fall in love again with you

I know it's not a big revelation
There's so much more I could teach
But cooling down the globe or educating homophobes
Feels to be a bit out of reach

So here's the next song
While I'm trying to mumble along
Maybe my heart is true
But does it tell me what to do
Saints are liars and the world's on fire
And I am just in love with you

Sometimes I look at a little bigger picture
Saying more than any word I can recall
But wrapping up the rhyme in melody and time
Seems to give deeper meaning to it all
Track Name: Me and my girl reprise
Me and my girl keep on swinging
Me and my girl keep on singing
Me and my girl keep on swinging
Me and my girl, me and my girl
