The little there's left it's best to save Seeking with laughter The sound of far-distant waves Moments and words we used to know Back on my feet with nothing to show The compass lost its north Make your eyes my path I meant to learn before Now I feel my wrath The pendulum is sore They're taking out the tracks And locking up the drawers It's slipping out my hands And getting washed ashore Childhood winters playing in the snow All long gone and have left with the glow And I swore I'd never let go Prudence dear prudence why do you travel so slow

I laid there shaking In the stillness Filling the space Between you and I. Coping with the loss And internal strife Shadows of hands stretching out To grab me they try Was it you in the unlit room Picking at my wounds? Maybe this time I won't be so blind. I love the sound Of wind blowing on my house And when winter comes I barely go out. A light is on the move Or so I've been told But all that I could find Was a heart of coa

In front of my eyes The storm took form But I am not fearful I have poetry To cling onto In the dead of the night And if you're still hurtin’ Call out to me Love in a cup Is what I will pour If you're stuck in a rut You'll always find A place at my table When others are blind To your cause I know real moments don't come ‘round a lot So drop on by It's brewing for you Under my smoking chimney tonight You might never see How much Of an inspiration You are to me To see you like this I realize The depth of the pain that you hide inside Love in a cup Is what I will pour If you're stuck in a rut You'll always find A place at my table When others are blind To your cause I know real moments don't come ‘round a lot So drop on by It's brewing for you Under my smoking chimney tonight

It took all the time Why aren't we as careful Deceivers cover your face Waking in a hospital The weight is all around Eternal and invisible Looking out for me Looking out for trouble As always I comply Ain't no clarifying lies So don't waste your precious time Making sense of the day, of this life Some keep going astray The curve comes in too soon A haunting presence Makes its way over the dune Floating through the hallway And into the room Looking for a new one In the quiet gloom

Have I ever been able to call this place my home? To recoil the crazy hearts are often prone Do I have it in me? Have I lost control? On us my ways have taken their toll It's out of sight and out of reach Alone walking head down on a sunless beach Something is missing and it's driving me away I'm strong enough to face this But it kills me to say... I have to leave My soul is aching with grief This I can't overcome Don't remember me for who I have become

I remember a long time ago BTO was playing on the radio Singing along in my father's Ford Bronco Sitting in the back seat looking out the window Driving through the Gatineau Hills The beauty of the moment seemed so surreal We stopped for poutine outside of Low. Oh how I miss my father's blue Bronco. Back then we drove to my grandmother's house My uncle and aunt live there now Sugar cream pies and crispy pork rinds Were always on the table when we arrived I used to sit in her rocking chair Or go out four wheelin' take in the open air Until it was time to go Go back home in my dad's Ford Bronco Sometimes I would stay a few more days Across the street at my aunt’s place I thought she was really kind and fun She always had candy and a great VHS collection The Goonies, Robocop and Total Recall Were my favourite ones of them all And when it was time for me to go We drove off in my dad's Ford Bronco I thought there was no place we couldn't go In my father's blue Ford Bronco

Hearing you laugh by St Laurent Lake brings back memories and eases my ache Just got back, was out on the road Making music with my friends on tour Was thinking of you along the way I'm glad we are together today I helped you catch your first large mouth bass I wish that moment forever would last How long? How long? Until you leap into my arms How long? How long? I'll call after sound check if I time How long? How long? The highway means money but keeps us apart How long? How long? At what cost the songwriter follows his heart? Growing grim of my tired town If I stay put too long I get myself down My patient love waits for me at home Tells me comforting words when we talk on the phone Couple more hours before we take the stage I'll no longer feel like I'm out of place The Atlantic sky is hosting tonight And by the seaside I can't help but wonder How long, how long I'll be home in twelve days; please dry your eyes How long, how long I look back and see you waving goodbye How long, how long Through a rainy window they watch me depart How long, how long At what cost a songwriter follows his heart?

My little brother is highly medicated And my mother does her best trying to take care of him I left before the storm Looking for a light It's so easy to get lost On those evil streets at night The phone keeps ringing Yet I can't feel anything In my hometown The mill is endlessly bleeding People are fleeing As I watch the level rise Waiting time Trying to turn back the tide Oh little brother I didn't mean to leave you behind Oh little brother I didn't mean to leave you behind Oh little brother I didn't mean to leave you behind Oh little brother Why did I leave you behind?

I sing to no one Up in the spire And when I look down I see only fire What is there to be won Will not hold any answer The dream of a fool Does not always bear anger I can feel what is missing Bound to grieve on the morrow What keeps me within Sadly buried in the burrow I can’t shy away from hoping Muddled unlike before Tirelessly grappling with it Pass me by once more I had to build this bunker In the depth of my heart When I was a young boy To keep afflictions afar Everything I long for Is on the other side Dreading to be seen Like the Hunchback of Notre Dame Everything I worked for Was to escape this life Until I laid eyes on you I had never stepped into the light

about

Outside I'm a Giant Gracefield, Québec

Floating down from Quebec's upper Gatineau, the ethereal sounds of Outside I'm a Giant draw inspiration from songwriter Jeremi Pierre Caron’s riverside hideaway. This four-piece band combines deep-voiced vocals, acoustic guitar, pedal steel, violin, mandolin, bass clarinet and harmonica. Lingering contemplation of nature and human nature is in abundance here. ... more
