Track Name: Let Go
I can't stop thinking, I'm up all night.
Is that you dear blowing smoke rings round my brain.
I can feel you coming down on me.
Might have to sleep out in the rain.
To cool down.

Even though it feels like drowning, in the city sometimes
It's just the sensory overload
I should warn you I've been waiting
My whole life, to share my soul
But I tried to hard to be good
Then I finally lost control
Now it feels so good
To Let Go

I'll be honest with you if it hurts
I'd never hit you, but I can't restrain my words
Let us love again, it'll be alright
I can feel the rain coming in
To cool us down

Even though it feels like drowning, in the city sometimes
It's just the sensory overload
I should warn you I've been waiting
My whole life, to share my soul
But I tried to hard to be good
Then I finally lost control
Now it feels so good
To Let Go
Track Name: Long Long Ago
There's no love, just sex
No more cigarettes
I dumped whiskey for burning this hole in my heart
Then there's you at the corner with your strawberry curls
Whispering sweet songs into my ear

It's not like we kiss, it's just the romance that we miss
But I knew it so well, long long ago

Now Jimi's long gone but he left me his car
It's a real piece of work
It won't get me that far
Just to you at the corner
With your strawberry curls
Whispering sweet songs into my ear.

It's not like we kiss, it's just the romance that we miss
But I knew it so well, long long ago

If you see me past midnight, I stumble a lot
Trying to make it to you at the end of my block
But your not there 'cause it's late
And you've got a date
Whispering sweet songs in a luckier mans ear

It's not like we kiss, it's just the romance that we miss
But I knew it so well, long long ago
Track Name: Black Coffee Weekend
We're mummified in sheets
Sun's up and it shoots through the window
I'll make something to eat
You refuse
It's a black coffee weekend

Oh No

I'll miss you little leaf
Curled up you'd kiss me by the window
I'm begging at your feet
You refuse it's a black coffee weekend
Track Name: SkyTrain
Commercial’s set to overdrive
all the hipster punks and the hippie dives
While Chelsea’s keeping soul alive
on the corner outside

The Skytrain will take you away
Off to the places where memories play
There’s no place that I’d rather be
Than here on this Skytrain my baby and me

The corduroy was quite a room,
I saw Tia Speed and the sweet perfume
And their songs of love filled up the room,
We’d never want to go home

Now Main street always held my heart but the memories cause me pain
I’m nearly at the station now as it starts to rain.

On a lazy afternoon in pigeon park the homeless swoon
and trade brand new needles for cigarettes
Track Name: Canadian Lullaby
Canadian Lullaby by Rob Fillo

E A E
Let the Rain Fall Down Upon us
E B
Let the fields grow toward the sky
E A E
Lets the Farmers rest their weary heads
E B E
A Canadian Lullaby

Let the trees grow all around us

Lets the seas never run dry

Lets the sailors rest in their warm dry beds

A Canadian Lullaby

Lets the trains feed our fair cities

Lets the people never need cry

Let our mothers be blessed as they blessed us

A Canadian Lullaby

Let our people stand for their freedoms

Be proud and hold your head high

Cause no one can break the spirits we make

A Canadian Lullaby
