Four years and roughly 250 songs later, the idea now has a mind of its own. Maybe it’s the simple math of how blind faith multiplies." - Gordie Sampson ... more

I think i heard a mermaid call my name
her hair was long and her eyes were extra bright and baby i won't ever be the same
no baby i won't ever be the same

grab your flip flops and your boom box and two coolers of ice
we hit up the same spot where it's so hot and the water feels so nice
steal a tiki torch from your mama's porch we ain't gonna bring it back
cause when the sun comes up my friend
yeah when the sun comes up my friend we're doing this again
we're doing this again

i fell asleep in her arms last night
she held me like the ocean holds the wind if i could go back to that summer night
i'd take off all my clothes and jump right in
yeah i'd take off a" my clothes and jump right in

grab your flip flops and your boom box and two coolers of ice
we hit up the same spot where it's so hot
and the water feels so nice
steal a tiki torch from your mama's porch we ain't gonna bring it back
cause when the sun comes up my friend we're doing this again

i know you're not that tough let's wash away our sins where have you been?

must have been the perfect place from that shit grin on your face
is it sinking in?
where have you been?
where have you been?

performed by dana beeler, natalie lynn, willie stratton

my bones will break, walls will shake black water, black water
my momma left me reckless and daddy left me crazy black water, black water

well the devil came a rollin'
came a walking down the street black water, black water
he's knocking at my door gonna lift my soul from me black water, black water

you can run, you can't hide
i caught you at the cross road with a pistol by your side
you'll find me working where the black crow flies drink that black water boy, it'll be your demise

well you know l'm guilty and i'm bound to pay the fine black water, black water
he's got one hand on his glass and the other on my spine black water, black water

your time is up and you're coming 'long with me
you shook hands with the devil in the lonesome valley
you'll find me working where the black crow flies drink that black water boy, it'll be your demise

harbourtown
written in 2011 by breagh mackinnon, gordie sampson, natalie lynn
performed by breagh mackinnon
produced by breagh mackinnon and mike shepherd, mixed by mike shepherd
from the album "where the days went" by breagh mackinnon (2011)

the sun don't always shine in a harbourtown
the lines between the seasons are a blur
the ocean knows your name and it calls you home
like a voice inside your head you've never heard

no one keeps a secret in a harbourtown
you never know what trouble you may find
i might just fall in love in this harbourtown i hear that it happens all the time

people stop and stare In a harbourtown
some boats come to shore and never stay
the waitress at the legion hasn't changed a bit
while everything else does these days

the fog is like a blanket in this harbourtown it don't keep me warm but it'll do
and i don't know what love is in this harbourtown
that's what 6 years in alberta does to you

i should have stayed i should have listened
i should have took what i was given, and just given in now the cards are on the table,
wondering if i have the heart to start over again
all over again

the sun don't always shine in a harbourtown some boats come to shore and never stay
i just might fall in love in this harbourtown and i wouldn't have it any other way

performed by jenny macdonald
produced byed renzi and jenny macdonald, mixed byed renzi from the album "Into your heart, out of my mind" by
jenny macdonald (2014)

steam rollin' down the window pane
music to my ears when you speak my name
two hands, hold tight
strangers in the dark, still strangers in the light
one look, too long
all the right words but the timing's all wrong

warm hands, cold heart
started as a fire then it faded to a spark warm hands, cold heart
left me with a chill when you left me in the dark
you got warm hands, and a cold, cold heart
Track Name: Molly Thomason & Carleton Stone - never felt a thing

produced and mixed by joel plaskett (2012)

you walked Into the room i never felt a thing
there was no flash of light, no angels singing heard your name around
but i'd never seen your face
and you just can't trust the stories in this place maybe both of us were trouble
maybe that's why we felt safe
spending hours talking nothings and nonsense

hey, my love
do you remember that day?
'cause i remember every word hey, my love
when the needle hit the vein i expected it to hurt
but i never felt a thing
i never felt a felt a thing

there was a silent subtle shifting going on inside my chest
never thought that it could happen not as comfortably as this
like your old family piano
with two seats worn into the bench play me something i wanna hear wanna hear, wanna hear
something that I wanna hear

hey my love
do you remember that day?
'cause i remember every word heymy love
when the needle hit the vein i expected it to hurt
but i never felt a thing

no pressure no pain
no i never felt a thing
no need to explain i never felt a thing
all over again

my love
when the needle hit the vein
i never felt a thing
i never felt a thing
i never, I never
no i never felt a thing i never felt a thing
i expected it to hurt but i never felt a thing

me? i'm the type of guy that won't go out and buy that too afraid to try that
i'm that guy
that likes to stay low-key pizza and a movie, truly
you only get what you see

cause i'm not the type of guy to go out so much i'd rather chill up on my couch, so what7
i worry what they think and i don't even know why but it's amazing you don't even have to try, because

you, you wake up beautiful
and when you walk out the door the whole world knows your name and you, well you outta know by now that i mean it when i say
i promise that i'll never change

and them, they're the ones that act like life is just a straight line
and they think I'll waste time, that's fine
cause i'll just let em think that
they're really gonna live that
storybook life with the big cash

but you don't have to worry about any of that or beauty either, you got plenty of that
from that gorgeous smile baby, to the prettiest eyes
it's amazing you don't even have to try, you know why?

you, you wake up beautiful when you walk out the door
the whole world knows your name

we'll be the last two standing when all the lights come on
we'll be those two fools dancing after the band's long gone
it was a gut reaction
when i laid my eyes on you that's when i knew

we'll be the last two standing long after the credits roll we'll be the last ones leaving two seats in a sold-out show it was a chain reaction
from the day you said my name
that's when i knew
we'll be the last two standing

love that goes around comes around watching them all fall down
when they all fall down

we'll be the last two standing living on rock n' roll
we'll still be two young lovers when everyone is grey and old it's still the same attraction
some things never change that's when i knew
we'll be the last two standing

love that goes around comes around watching them all fall down
when they all fall down when they all fall down

we'll be the last two standing when all the gas runs out
you know we'll be holding hands
when the big man rings that bell it's still a gut reaction
when i lay my eyes on you
that's when i knew
we'll be the last two standing

let's play these games
the city wants us to play
jump through their hoops and say what they want us to say
let's tell them the truth but keep it real vague
don't point any fingers or name any names as the sirens fade away
the days seem long as long as the road
that keeps rolling on, taking us further and further from home

as the sirens fade away
we don't gotta move to make our getaway as the sirens fade away

a smoking gun
a smash and grab
you're squealing the tires and rip off the mask a hole in the wall
a master plan
while you're turning their heads i'm taking the cash

as the sirens fade away we don't gotta move
no, we don't gotta move as the sirens fade away
we don't gotta move to make our getaway
