This album would still only be a dream without funding support from both FACTOR and the Ontario Arts Council. Thank you for your generosity. We are so proud to be Canadian! Merci à nos familles, nos amis et nos fans pour votre amour et votre encouragement. Merci à tous les musiciens qui ont donné vie à notre musique. Merci à Andrew Mullin, Jordan Westman et Alyssa Westman pour votre travail incroyable. Finalement, ce projet aurait été impossible sans Neil Whitford, Greg Westman, Laura Jones et Louis Lefaive. Du fond de nos cœurs, merci mille fois.

Track Name: Country Kids
Country Kids know how to roam
In the open spaces by their homes
Along with birdsong Country Kids hum
In the woods when springtime comes

To Country Kids time moves so slow
In the summertime when the windows
Are always open wide because
The air conditioning is broken again

And stormy winter nights
Are spent alone far from the town lights
They’re miles and miles away
But Country Kids are not afraid

Country Kids know the rhythm of the land
The give and the take, the work-worn hands
Reading by sweet-corn stands
Finding romance beneath the willows
Track Name: Baie Georgienne
I know a place where the kids are dancing
Everybody's grooving, everybody's twisting
I know a place where the kids are dancing

Take me there today
Down to Georgian Bay
Throw your cares away

Je connais une place où les jeunes chantent
Toutes les voix unies, fredonnent une mélodie
Je connais une place où les jeunes chantent

Oooooo

Take me there today
Down to Georgian Bay
Throw your cares away

Je connais une place où les jeunes chantent
Toutes les voix unies, fredonnent une mélodie
Je connais une place où les jeunes chantent

I know a place where the kids are dancing
Everybody's grooving, everybody's twisting
I know a place where the kids are dancing
Track Name: Les mots
Les mots et les dents et les lèvres et la langue
La voix, la chaleur, dans tes bras la noirceur
On vit et on meurt comme les vagues sur la mer
On crie et on crie mais y’a plus rien à faire

Oooooo

Ta main dans ma main, tes yeux dans les miens
Le vent et le froid quand tu n’es plus là
Je vis et je meurs pour chaque regard
J’appelle et j’appelle mais personne ne m’entend

Oooooo

Donne moi
Tout ce que t’as
Doucement
Je crie et je crie mais tu n’es plus là

Oooooo
Track Name: Shake the Dust
I want to run but I can’t move
Caught here with nothing left to loose
Why can’t I row this boat away?
Frozen in place I can’t escape

Now I can’t shake this dust off of my feet anymore
But Lord above knows I’ve tried and tried
And I can’t shake these chains off of my hands anymore
But Lord above knows they are yours to hold now

Oooo, Oooo, Oooo

I used to run I used to flee
From all the ghosts and what they mean
Form north to south, from east to west
Until I found my solace

Now I can’t shake this dust off of my feet anymore
But Lord above knows I’ve tried and tried
And I can’t shake these chains off of my hands anymore
But Lord above knows they are yours to hold now

Oooo, Oooo

I can’t escape your love
I can’t escape your love
No I can’t escape your love
I can’t escape
No I can’t escape your love
No I can’t escape you love
I can’t escape your love
I can’t escape

Oooo, Oooo, Oooo
Track Name: River
There's a river
And it runs out from my house
And it goes where it wants to

There's a love
This river that flows
And you can't tame it
It's holy

There's a hope
A humble hope
In the living water
Streaming ever onward

There's a river
And it goes where it wants to
So it runs freely from me and it goes over to you
It goes over to you

Et cette rivière
Qui commence dans ta maison
Elle passe par ma forêt
Elle passe par ma forêt

Les arbres
Sont ma famille
Si grands et si forts
Si grands et si forts

Et cette rivière
Qui commence dans ta maison
Elle vient me nourrir
Elle vient nous nourrir

Nos âmes sont la forêt
Cette rivière nous ravive
Elle nous donne la vie
Elle nous donne la vie

Oh the river that takes me
Takes me back to you
Oh the river that takes me homeward
Track Name: J'ai fini
Comme les trains qui passent sous le
Soleil d’hiver, chacun sur sa voie
Nous courons tous les deux parallèles
Et si distants, on évite les faits

Et là, là devant! Tempête dans la rue
On est si distants, que ferons nous?

Got nothing left to give
Stuck in the storm
Why didn’t I just get out
While the getting was good?

Tous les jours on se croise mais on
Ne se voit pas, prisonniers du froid
Deux locomotives perdues dans
L'œil du cyclone, entourées de blanc

Tu aimerais penser qu’il n’y a pas de froid
Mais je nous connais bien mieux que toi

The wind
Rattles my bones
Rattles my bones
Rattles my bones
Chills my soul
Dries me up

Got nothing left to give
Stuck in the storm
Why didn’t I just get out
While the getting was good?

The wind
Rattles my bones
Rattles my bones
Rattles my bones
Chills my soul
Dries me up

Got nothing left to give
Stuck in the storm
Why didn’t I just get out
While the getting was good?
Track Name: Thinking of You
Ba ba’s

Wake up early sleep in my eyes
Never sleep enough the hours are shorter
And the sandman evades me, evades me
Wake up early sleep in my eyes
Never sleep enough the hours are shorter
And the sandman evades me, evades me

Thinking of you on my way to work
Thinking of you on the bus
Thinking of you on my way back home
Thinking of you
I’m just thinking of you

Listen to that song you like
Try to put up a fight
Working hard, making money
So I can go see you again
Listen to that song you like
Try to put up a fight
Working hard, making money
So I can go see you again

Thinking of you on my way to work
Thinking of you on the bus
Thinking of you on my way back home
Thinking of you
I’m just thinking of you
Thinking of you on my way to work
Thinking of you on the bus
Thinking of you on my way back home
Thinking of you
I’m just thinking of you

You are far again
I miss you again
Come back again
I want you back

Thinking of you on my way to work
Thinking of you on the bus
Missing your lips, how you make me feel
Sha-la-la-la, La-la-la, Laaaaa
I’m thinking, I’m thinking bout you baby
I’m thinking of you, yah,
I’m thinking, I’m thinking bout you
I’m just thinking of you

Ba ba’s
Track Name: Juliette
Quel désespoir Juliette
Pourquoi les larmes
Pourquoi les pleurs
Le regret

L’amour fut une épreuve
Chagrin, silence
Juliette, ton âme
Les peines, douleur
Insomnie
Les morts, les mourants
Une vie

Quel désespoir Juliette
Pourquoi les larmes
Pourquoi les pleurs
Le regret
