HERE: Country Rock

The songs on "Here" take a look at fleeting love. When love is here it can make life easy and shake up the elements. When love moves away, to somewhere else, to someone else, it can be confusing and dispiriting. Producer Matthew Emerson Brown brings a toe-tapping country-rock sound to this collection of stories of romance.

Track Name: Easy to Be
"EASY TO BE" by David Guilbault

It’s so easy to be your lover.
It’s so easy to be your man.
It’s so easy to be, half of you and me,
All that we can be together.

Our lovers’ embrace.
That look on your face.
The touch of hands. You understand
That I’m your man forever.

We are ev’rything
I could every dream.
We are so easy to be.

It’s so easy to be your lover.
It’s so easy to be your friend.
It’s so easy to be, so easy and free,
So that we can be together.

Our laughter fills the air.
You brush back my hair.
The knowing glance. The soulful dance.
The love that leaves us breathless.

We are ev’rything
I could every dream.
We are so easy to be.

It’s so easy to be your lover.
It’s so easy to be your man.

Track Name: Anymore
"ANYMORE" by David Guilbault

You came along, along the way,
You took my heart, ev’ry day,
You took a little more than I could give.
I gave it all and all I got
In return was empty talk
Until I knew that we would break apart.

(CHORUS)
I don’t love you anymore –
Any more than forever,
Any more than for always,
Any more than for the rest of my life.

I thought that I could be set free
From the love you held from me.
Now I see that it’s a ghostly curse.
Your hold is tight around my soul.
And ev’ry day my spirit knows
You will always be a haunting fear.

I can’t seem to shake you loose,
Even though my heart is used
To being on the search for someone new.
You’re ev’rywhere I want to go
With ev’ryone I want to know.
Wish that you could see to set me free.

"Anymore" © 2001 David Guilbault

Track Name: Here, Alone
"HERE, ALONE" by David Guilbault

Here, alone. By my/self.
Here, alone. No one else.
Here, alone , you can feel the moan.
Here, alone. Feel the air.
There’s a still.
The wind moves over there.

Here, alone. Quiet night.
Here, alone. Feeling tight.
Here, alone. You can hear the sigh.
Here, alone. Mark the time.
There’s a still.
The world moves out of sight.

(CHORUS)
You can fill your space,
Chock to the brim.
You can build your place
Just to wall all the loneliness in.

Here, alone. Seconds tick.
Here, alone. Getting’ sick.
Here, alone. You can hear the cry.
Here, alone. Day to day.
There’s a still.
Life has moved away.

"Here, Alone" © 2007 David Guilbault

Track Name: Don't Ask Me Why
"DON'T ASK ME WHY" by David & Brent Guilbault

Don’t ask me why.
I never understood
Don’t ask me why.
I’d tell you if I could.
Can’t take an action.
Can’t make a move.
All these distractions are just a ruse.

Don’t ask me why
I answer to my fears
Don’t ask me why
They grip me when they’re here.
Terror knows no boundary.
The bearer can’t be blamed.
Fear is the foundry where I was flamed.
Don’t ask me why.

I get so down.
There’s nothing I can do.
That brings you down.
There’s nothing you can do.
There is no reason.
There’s just the rhyme.
The world’s in season. I’m out of time.
Don’t ask me why.

Don’t ask me why
It all wound up this way.
Don’t ask me why
I won’t know what to say.
It’s up to me now.
It’s down to this:
Into the light or the abyss.
Don’t ask me why.

"Don't Ask Me Why" © 1997 David & Brent Guilbault

Track Name: All the Heavens
"ALL THE HEAVENS" by David Guilbault

The stars got cross across the sky.
The moon got lost and refused to rise.
The sun went chasing after bygone days.
All the heavens were amazed.

Bodies were spinning out of sight.
Orbits were thinning from their heights.
Oceans waxing when they were supposed to wane.
All the heavens were amazed.

That’s the day when I met you
And ev’rything was changed.
All of the elements
Decided to get strange.

Gravity went and took the whole day off.
The seven seas took a break and would not toss.
The sticky laws of nature all went their separate ways.
All the heavens were amazed.

That’s the day when I met you
And ev’rything was changed.
All of the elements
Decided to get strange.

The stars got cross across the sky.
The moon got lost and refused to rise.
The sun went chasing after bygone days.
All the heavens were amazed.

Track Name: Hard Like That
"HARD LIKE THAT" by David Guilbault

(To) my way of thinkin’
The truth’s interpretation
Is subject to occasional sin.
Way that I look at it
Is bound to put a crook in it,
Turn it into something bent.

(CHORUS)
It ain’t the truth
It’s just a fact.
And I’m telling you,
Ain’t it hard like that?

The sun’s up in the mornin’.
You can swear that it’s a bornin’.
But, the more you see the more you don’t know.
Seein’ ain’t believin’,
And all you see is leavin’
By the light that was shining before.

Ev’ryone’s a liar,
And no one will be higher
Than anyone who tires of the truth.
What you say is really
The lie around the feeling
Underneath what’s buggin’ you.

"Hard Like That" © 1998 David Guilbault
