Track Name: Stay by me
Stay by me this winter time / Elsewhere you wish to be / Leaving me is such a crime / Oh please oh wo wo stay by me / Stay by me even if I ain’t got a dime / I know how to write the good line / If you ask me I will rhyme / Your lips taste like expensive wine // Cover your troat in this winter time / I won’t pay a dime / To read what your skates wrote / Let’s drink beneath nude maple trees / Hot chocolate that freezes / When the wind beats // And stay by me this winter time / Elsewhere you wish to be / Leaving me is such a crime / Oh please oh wo wo stay by me / Stay by me even if I ain’t got a dime / I know how to write the good line / If you ask me I will rhyme / Your lips taste like expensive wine // Do you wish to leave / I hope you’re not / You saying goodbye is like a knot / hanging from the ceiling / I wish to keep you by my side / It’s like some kind of pride / To take you out for a ride // And stay by me this winter time / Elsewhere you wish to be / Leaving me is such a crime / Oh please oh wo wo stay by me / Stay by me even if I ain’t got a dime / I know how to write the good line / If you ask me I will rhyme / Your lips taste like expensive wine // If you stay till summer comes / No more I’ll be a bum / And I’ll take you out to eat / At home you will find a treat / For you on the table / Nice boots for you not to stumble // And stay by me this winter time / Elsewhere you wish to be / Leaving me is such a crime / Oh please oh wo wo stay by me / Stay by me even if I ain’t got a dime / I know how to write the good line / If you ask me I will rhyme / Your lips taste like expensive wine //
Track Name: Ten to ten
It’s ten to ten/And sun does pour / The land is lent by the floor / Lying down the masks I wore / And yesterday there was a game / And Montreal lost 3 to 4 // And it’s ten to ten / And the rain is / A cold, cold water that used to / Pour gently but now the streets are drowning // On the table lying down / A wine glass reminds me / Of ancient grounds of France / The pity of history / And the noise outside sounds / Like the noise of hysteria // And it’s ten to ten / And the rain is / A cold cold water that used to / Pour gently but now the streets are drowning // There’s some junkies by the Main / And more by Ste-Catherine / They’re craving hard for cocain / The’re dying for heroin / Sreets there are quite dirty /But even if they don’t worth much / We should walk more gently / Cause to run is to walk on a rush // And it’s ten to ten / And the rain is / A cold cold water that used to / Pour gently but now the streets are drowning / And time passes by /As the rain fills the hat / As the sparrow sings / Without having time to fly / Few have silence / And a few less have a word / And love can’t beat the violence / At least that’s what I’ve heard / And it’s ten to ten / And the rain is / A cold cold water that used to /Pour gently but now the streets are drowning.
Track Name: 3:33
You’re gone, as I told / On an accordeon / Flying to Paris / To go shed secretly / All the tears you refused me to cry /Let’s lock in a basement and sunlight will dance
Like a moon between your broken arms // And it’s 3:33 in the morning / And now that we are stoned / Is there some sand to fill / And cover clocks that we once killed? // Are you making a sail boat / Out of my genitals / Sailing in thick lounge air / Dropping bourbon / Between our half-opened chests /It’s raining nails my umbrella stands still /I’m soaking the bottom of my shoes // And it’s 3:33 in the morning /
And now that we are stoned / Is there some sand to fill / And cover clocks that we once killed? // When you told me, ‘‘See you next fall’’ / Wellington Street was some sentry / And from back you looked like a marshmallow / You’re such a great wound that I need a shot / From this narcotic spoon // And it’s 3:33 in the morning / And now that we are stoned / Is there some sand to fill / And cover clocks that we once killed? // Staple me wings and I will gently fly / In this wounded NDG sky /Looks like the moon is a butterfly / Johnny Cash is high and so am I /I can’t get rid of it but I try // And it’s 3:33 in the morning / And now that we are stoned / Is there some sand to fill / And cover clocks that we once killed?
Track Name: Xmas Mary
I’m a fool for you / Your hair is full of wine / But you’ll never be mine / Whatever I may do // Xmas Mary / We’ll eat the turkey / With bourbon whisky / That’s all // ‘‘Great winter,’’ you said / Your teeth are white as fresh cocain / No use to crying beneath the rain / That falls gently on our heads // Xmas Mary / We’ll eat the turkey / With bourbon whisky / That’s all // All night I lie awake / For life so deeply aches / With your picture in my eye / Your stoned and so am I // Xmas Mary / We’ll eat the turkey / With bourbon whisky / That’s all // I’ll try to remember / What occurred last summer / When we drank so much rye / That the bottle went dry.
Track Name: Wellington Street
I remember you cold / On Wellington Street / And you looked like a jew / Cause of lines on your face / I’ll vomit the moon / And I’ll stop the rain / Cause your eyebrows are 2 lonely lanes // And the words that I say / May sound like a sad song / Sadness in fact / Is where I belong // Please fold me as you will / And I will marry thee / Dans la ville de Paris / On top of the hill / And I will spell my love / M-Y-L-E-N-E / And the rocks from above will start falling upon me // And the words that I say / May sound like a sad song / Sadness in fact / Is where I belong // There should be a province / Where love never dies / Cause I’m tired of trains / Tired of saying goodbye / Cause in my darkness / I can’t see the light / I will surely rest / If you’re back by tonight // And the words that I say / May sound like a sad song / Sadness in fact / Is where I belong.
Track Name: If you know how
If you know how the snowflake falls / Oh! Please like a spring wind let me know /And how we’ll see it, love it, walk it, touch it / And I hope it won’t let me fall // My nose is frozen / My pain is close / My head ain’t learned / I learn // If you know how the trees grow / Oh! Please like a sun just do it / And how we’ll see it, love it, walk it, touch it / And I hope that it won’t let me fall // My nose is frozen / My pain is close / My head ain’t learned / I learn // If you know how the poet sings / Oh! Let me know before I sink / Before your eyes, before my storm / Before my thoughts are torn // My nose is frozen / My pain is close /My head ain’t learned / I learn.
Track Name: Cassandre
With alcohol and pills / The beer just made me ill / I smoked with some old guy / Because I’ve made Cassandra cry // I’ve made Cassandra cry oh, Lord! / Tears drop from her eyes / And roll in the sky /Because I’ve made Cassandra cry // I walked from the stairs / Life is a just a mare / I wish I could deny / That I’ve made Cassandra cry // I’ve made Cassandra cry oh, Lord! / Tears drop from her eyes / And roll in the sky / Because I’ve made Cassandra cry // I wish she was here with me / I’m all apologies
I never could decide / Why I’ve made Cassandra cry // I’ve made Cassandra cry oh, Lord! / Tears drop from her eyes / And roll in the sky / Because I’ve made Cassandra cry.
Track Name: Les oxalydes dressées
La lune sera pleine / Quand cesseront les fêtes / Au cœur du mois de février / Comme si la neige m’appelle / Et qu’elle décore les ruelles / Des soirées mauves de janvier // Do you think of / Do you think of / Do you think of me / Cause me I think about / Me I think about / Me I think about you // Une pluie soudaine découvre / Les nids d’oiseaux depuis / Longtemps que le givre s’est envolé / La terre mouillée prépare / Au mois d’avril ou mai / Des bouquets d’oxalydes dressées // Do you think of / Do you think of / Do you think of me / Cause me I think about / Me I think about / Me I think about you // Une aurore boréale / En confiture s’étale / Les braises du crépuscule toasté / Quand la cuisine avale / Les fumées du bois de poële / Je fume auprès de la cheminée // Do you think of / Do you think of / Do you think of me / Cause me I think about / Me I think about / Me I think about you // Si ensemble on s’évade / Sur les battures de jade / Sur les lichens qui font glisser / Sous les balises on voit / S’embrasser de par les quais / Tous les lilas du mois de mai.
