Ashleigh Ball



Maybe I stayed a little late the other night
Maybe I should have come to be there by your side
I hurried home, a little stoned, despite the rain
I should have known that's how it goes, there's no escape


Maybe I was crazy 'cause of you
Crazy 'cause of you
All that stupid shit you put me through
Crazy 'cause of you
Maybe I was crazy 'cause of you
Crazy 'cause of you
Every time you doubted I'd be true
Crazy 'cause of you

Maybe I stepped across a line I should have seen
Dancing with darkness in the spaces just between
I try to play it off as nothing, try to hide
The little truth that I was keeping deep inside

Maybe I was crazy 'cause of you
Crazy 'cause of you
All that stupid shit you put me through
Crazy 'cause of you
Maybe I was crazy 'cause of you
Crazy 'cause of you
Every time you doubted I'd be true
Crazy 'cause of you

Do I break down and lose control
And show you what's deep in my soul
I dare you darling and you'll see
Just how crazy this crazy can be
Do I break down and lose control
And show you what's aeep in my soul
I dare you darling and you'll see
Just how crazy this crazy can be
Oh I dare you darling
Just how crazy this crazy can be
Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah
Just how crazy this crazy can be

Maybe I was crazy 'cause of you
Crazy 'cause of you
All that stupid shit you put me through
Crazy 'cause of you
Maybe I was crazy 'cause of you
Crazy 'cause of you
Every time you doubted I'd be true
Crazy 'cause of you

Whitehorse - Nighthawks



Come on down from your ledge
With your pretty wingspread
Fly me through the steel towered night
When the cold air bites
When the alley cats fight
All the normals have shut off their lights

I will tie to your [?]
Your pantyhose will start to run
But everybody's lookin' to the sky
Nighthawks comin' alive

Let me in, let me in, let me underneath your skin
Oh it will break my little heart
When the sun slowly calms to the east side of the stars
It's gonna break, it's gonna break, it's gonna break
It's gonna break my little heart

[?] of places you have been
Sing it out like a vampire's hymn
Everything sets a jinx
Just a smile and a wink
Will go a long, long way tonight

Oh I know that your little girl was sleeping in the other room
While everybody looks the other way
Nighthawks come out to play

Let me in, let me in, let me underneath your skin
Oh it will break my little heart
When the sun slowly calms to the east side of the stars
It's gonna break, it's gonna break, it's gonna break
It's gonna break my little heart

It's a cripple's kill
So you pop another pill
Roll your eyes like you're so bla-ze
She's a stunner, you're a taker
She's a muse, she's a faker
And you like it that way

Baby, save me from myself
Baby, save me from myself

Let me in, let me in, let me underneath your skin
Oh it will break my little heart
When the sun slowly calms to the east side of the stars
It's gonna break, it's gonna break, it's gonna break
It's gonna break my little heart

It's gonna break, it's gonna break, it's gonna break
It's gonna break my little heart

It's gonna break my little heart
It's gonna break my heart

The Weekend

Everybody here wants you
My love, my love
And I know that you want them too
My love, my love
I ask you what your heart desires
My love, my love
You tell me I'm the only one
My love, my love

It's a lie, a lie
I catch you every time
In your lust, your lust
Every time you close your eyes

I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talkin' in your sleep
I hear the secrets that you keep, keep, keep
When you're talk, talkin', talkin'
I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talkin' in your sleep
I hear the secrets that you keep, keep, keep
When you're talk, talkin', talkin'

You told me not to worry 'bout
Those guys, those guys
You told me that you left it all behind
Behind

It's a lie, a lie
I catch you every time
In your lust, your lust
Every time you close your eyes

I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talkin' in your sleep
I hear the secrets that you keep, keep, keep
When you're talk, talkin', talkin'
I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talkin' in your sleep
I hear the secrets that you keep, keep, keep
When you're talk, talkin', talkin'

Wipe the lust from your eyes
I see that you're not mine
I can see the lust in your eyes
You can't hide it
You can't be the one
I realize, we're divided

I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talkin' in your sleep
I hear the secrets that you keep, keep, keep
When you're talk, talkin', talkin'
I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talkin' in your sleep
I hear the secrets that you keep, keep, keep
When you're talk, talkin', talkin'

July Talk - Picturing Love



Picture yourself in a tangle with another
You feel your body awaken
Your skin is sh-sh-sh-shaking
Your love needed making
Pictures mean nothing when you find your own lover
And I'm talking skin on skin
That kind of skin that you're in, boy
That kind that's been where you've been

You, you, you...
You, you...
Cause I'm tired of seeing pictures on a screen
I'm tired of picturing love
Picturing love, picturing love, picturing love
I'm tired of picturing love
Picturing love, picturing love, picturing love
I'm tired of picturing love

When I wear, wear my hair
It's a man's world fantasy
I undress in seven steps
Like your camera's watching me
I suppose I'll strike a pose
But that's so predictable
I undress in seven steps because
We can't stop our

Picturing love, picturing love, picturing love
Cause I'm tired of picturing love
Picturing love, picturing love, picturing love
I'm tired of picturing love

In the screen I see a woman
Dancing to my expectations
A tired fantasy
Isn't this what you wanted?
Am I turning you on yet?
I don't know how to be
With all these eyes on me

You, you...
Someone like you, you, you...
Picturing love
Picturing love, picturing love, picturing love
I'm tired of picturing love
Picturing love, picturing love, picturing love
I'm tired of picturing love
Picturing love, picturing love, picturing love
I'm tired of picturing love
Picturing love, picturing love, picturing love
I'm tired of picturing love

The Chev got stuck and the Ford got stuck
But the Chev unstuck when the Dodge showed up
But the Dodge got stuck in the tractor rut,
Which eventually pulled out the Ford
With some difficulty

Well more rain than we’d seen for a thousand years
Caused financial joys and biblical fears
It caused some smiles it caused some tears
But more to the point of our story
For The first time in the collective memory,
That old brown prairie that had been so dry for so long was very muddy
Boggy and sticky
We’d pull one truck out and get another stuck in
And motors would roar and tires would spin
We’d sink right down, down to the diff, and we’d all take turns and do it again
Till no one could move, we’d call one more friend,
Come on out here, we need you…bring your truck

The Chev got stuck and the Ford got stuck
But the Chev unstuck when the Dodge showed up
But the Dodge got stuck in the tractor rut
Which eventually pulled out the Ford
And the Dodge
They got me stuck in the mud, so they couldn’t rehearse
And Chavase too has missed his work
Richie, he now fears the worst, he stood up his ex wife she called him a jerk
Course Holman didn’t have nothing better do to, ‘cept ranch.

The Chev got stuck and the Ford got stuck
But the Chev unstuck when the Dodge showed up
But the Dodge got stuck in the tractor rut
Which eventually pulled out the Ford

Well it was truck after truck, we all got stuck
‘cept the big old four by hutterite truck
We all thought “lord are we in luck!”
But he wouldn’t come anywhere near us,
Mighty neighborly, mighty neighborly.

So we used a lot of our backs, a little of our brains
We jacked up the jacks, and snugged up the chains,
We all did our very best to refrain from shovelin’.
We put what timber we had, underneath the wheels
And we was all out of sand, but managed to steal
Two sacks of the best modern canola seed you ever did see,
That ‘oughta give us some traction

The Chev got stuck and the Ford got stuck
But the Chev unstuck when the Dodge showed up
But the Dodge got stuck in the tractor rut
Which eventually pulled out the Ford

We spilled genetically modified canola seed
That was genetically modified for controlling the weeds
And for big old yields and margarine oil, raised hell all over that native prairie soil
Agriculture Canada is definitely gonna be looking for us

When you were a child and we all lived in the wild
And we married
And carried you in our arms and in our hearts
We were two, then three
Full and free just to be with you, see you
Made us feel anew, just like every day, love you like today
It's your birthday

Even though your mother's suddenly crying
She says it is the cake in the kitchen, you know she's lying
Your brothers fighting of your balloons
Still, the radio is playing all your favourite tunes
And Daddy will take down "Peter Pan" from the shelf
And he'll read it out loud, though you could read it yourself
You're growing up, you're growing up
But don't grow away from me

Oh, life is like a dream
The moment in between when you wake and sleep
In the deep, knowing it now, knowing how
It's heavy though, we can help you grow
Wanna package up the world like a present
We fail and try again

It's your birthday. I finally see
To let you go is the only way to really help you fly
But I'd rather hold on tight

You are a shining star
A bright spot in the universe
While things here go from bad to worse
So dark what lonely people do
Take too much, take too fast, eat too much
I wish there could be more of your kind
Grow strong, we'll ride along
It's your birthday

Dean Brody Mountain Man



It was a beautiful sunny morning, so we went for a drive
Hiked up in the mountains, and we lost track of time
A kissin' and a huggin', never saw the sun go down
I said "Baby we're lost", and she proceeded to freak out
So I said,

Baby baby don't panic, I know how to cook bannock
I can build you a fire, I know you're tired, ain't this romantic?
And that coyote howls, and the grizzly bear he growls
I can get you through the night, oh yes I can
I'm a mountain man

I gave her a little hug, I said "There's no need to cry"
I used to be a beaver scout all I need is this Buck knife
I can carve a hook, pull fish from a brook and I bang on with a gun
Except tonight I don't really have one, and well, that's half the fun
Awe you know I'm only kiddin' Hun

Baby baby don't panic, I know how to cook bannock
I can build you a fire, I know you're tired, ain't this romantic?
I know you're a city girl, but if you had to you could eat a squirrel
Yeah I'd cook him up just right, you know I can
I'm a mountain man

We could pick berries in the moonlight
'Cause I know which ones to eat
How to recognize poison ivy
Should you go lookin' for leaves

Baby baby don't panic, I know how to cook bannock
I can build you a fire, I know you're tired, ain't this romantic?
I can bugle an elk, I can rattle a deer, I can grow you a big ol' bushy beard
And live up here all year and never go back
Yeah I'm a mountain man
A man with a plan
You're in good hands
Yeah, I'm your mountain man

Awe don't cry Honey, It's all gonna' be alright
