"BY HIS OWN LIPS" by David Guilbault Betrayed - by his own lips. He was afraid – she would get hip. Now he’s been made. – He’s shown his kiss To be blue. Betrayed – by his own lips. He played fast and loose – with the sweet fibs. Now he’s about to lose – all the kind bliss He once knew. Betrayed. Betrayed. By his own lips. By his own lips. Betrayed. It’s strange – ‘cause he knew this. It was deranged – to even try and wish That he could change – from the lying lover He was. Damage done – ain’t no goin’ back. What’s done is done. – What’s fact is fact. I tell you, son – He did this To himself, to himself. Betrayed. Betrayed. By his own lips. By his own lips. Betrayed. Betrayed - by his own lips. His heart, they say – wasn’t into this. So comes this day. – He’s shown his kiss To be blue. Damage done – ain’t no goin’ back. What’s done is done. – What’s fact is fact. I tell you, son – He did this To himself, to himself. Betrayed. "By His Own Lips" © 2019David Guilbault _________________________

"I HAVE TO LIE" by David Guilbault The teardrops well - behind my eyes. You can’t tell – what is wrong. The heartaches swell. Take away my breath. The cuts are deep. The hurt is strong. I have to lie to get through, All these lonely nights That I spend with you. I have to lie to get through. I am so tired – of who we are. We are scarred - In silent pain. It’s been hard – hanging on this long. Hiding wounds of doubt and shame. I have to lie to get through, All these punishing nights That I spend with you. I have to lie to get through. We need to let go – this unholy vow. Why don’t you know – this to be true? Lies take their toll. There’s no more now That can make this right for me and you. I have to lie to get through, All these cunning nights That I spend with you. I have to lie to get through. "I Have to Lie" © 2018 David Guilbault _________________________

"LOVE, UNFASTENED" by David Guilbault The carpet smells of cigarettes And dirty tales of lust. I really shouldn’t be here. Your perfume makes me a drunken man. I cannot stand. I fall Into the darkness. Well, take off all your clothes. We’re in this, heaven knows. The room is cold, the sheets are worn, Our hearts are torn and tired From all the lying. We tell ourselves that this is love. But, it ain’t love at all That keeps us coming. So, take off all your clothes. We’re in this, heaven knows. Before this night is through I’ll wash away The scent of you to hide The stain of passion. We’ll kiss goodbye while others wait At home alone and cry From love unfastened. Now, take off all your clothes. We’re in this, heaven knows. The carpet smells of cigarettes And dirty tales of lust. I really shouldn’t be here.

"YOU'VE BEEN WITH HIM" by David Guilbault Do you think that I don’t know When you tell me all those lies? Do you think that it doesn’t show Right through your hiding eyes? Well, I know what you’re doin’. And I know where you’ve been. You’ve been with him. Don’t you know tjat when you come back home You smell of dark desire? Don’t you know that you’re as cold as stone When I try to start a fire? Well I know what you’re doin’. And I know where you’ve been. You’ve been with him. No need to take me for a fool. You’re out there playing by your own rules. I know it’s just a passing game. There ain’t no sense to call the blame. Don’t you think that you’ll break our love With your nights of loveless lies? Don’t you think that for the sake of us You need to tell that man goodbye? ‘Cause I still love you darling. And I’ve loved you even when … You’ve been with him.

"THE WAY YOU LOOKED" by David Guilbault I saw the way that he looked at you tonight. I saw the way that you looked back. There’s just no way that you can keep it from me now. You don’t love me like that. ‘Twas the time when I knew the way you looked Could fill my heart with love’s delight. Now’s the time that he took your love away. Your love for me’s nowhere in sight. Oh, the way you looked. The way you loved. I can see the lies behind your look. Your eyes betray an untrue smile. I know you did not want to go and break my heart. But that’s the way it goes sometimes. Oh, the way you looked. The way you loved. I saw the way that he looked at you tonight. I saw the way that you looked back. There’s no cause for you to keep it from me now. Your love for me ain’t coming back. Oh, the way you looked. The way you loved. I saw the way that he looked at you tonight. I saw the way that you looked back. "The Way You Looked" © 2014 David Guilbault _________________________

"I'VE SAID ENOUGH" by David Guilbault There ain’t nothing new That I can say to you. There ain’t nothing new, no more. I got nothing to say That’ll make it all be ok, You know you’ve heard it all before. I’ve said enough. Maybe I have said too much. I’ve said all that I should say. I’ve said enough. What would you like to hear? You wanna tell me, dear? Don’t you think you know the truth by now? I can’t lie, no more. This time it’s out the door. Let hollow words fall to the ground. I’ve said enough. Maybe I have said too much. I’ve said all that I should say. I’ve said enough. "I've Said Enough" © 2018 David Guilbault _________________________

about

_________________________

AWRY: Country Swing

He's lyin'. She's cheatin'. She's lyin'. He's cheatin'. Too much is said in vain. Too much dishonesty. Lots of love gone wrong in the songs written and sung by David Guilbault on "AWRY." Producer Matthew Emerson Brown made all the arrangements and plays all the instruments, giving the album a throwback classic country-rock swing.
