I Belong 03:34
"I BELONG" by David Guilbault Not to worry. Oh, not to cry for A world grown weary from all of its lies. Take a stand for what is true, And watch the whole wide world out gunning for you.  Oh, I, oh, I – I belong. Oh, I, oh, I - I belong.  There’s no place where I shouldn’t be. Ev’ryone is already free. All of us are all of this earth. Never mind the fate of my birth. Oh, I, oh, I – I belong. Oh, I, oh, I - I belong.  I belong where I’m found. I belong where I’m around. I belong where I’m bound. I belong to this town. I belong. Here and now is where I will stay. Ain’t nobody gonna turn me away. Ain’t no wind that’s got the gust To blow my truth into the dust.  Oh, I, oh, I – I belong. Oh, I, oh, I - I belong.  I belong where I’m found. I belong where I’m around. I belong where I’m bound. I belong to this town. I belong. I belong. "I Belong" © 2014 David Guilbault _________________________

Dear One 03:23
"DEAR ONE" Music by Gary Milici & Lyrics by David Guilbault Dear ones, all of you near, Open your hearts, joy is here On this blessed day, On this sacred ground. Dear one, my heart is full, My smile for you, so beautiful On our wedding day. Our love abounds. Time to hold onto the one I love. Hold onto love true. I give my heart. I give my hand. I pledge to always be beside you Through the good and bad. Take my heart. Take my hand, too. Do I take you for forever with this vow? Dear one, I do. As we vow to have and hold We’ll be our shelter from the cold. We'll share our smiles. We'll share our joys. We'll share this happy day that’s come our way With the ones we love. Hold their hands. Hold their hearts. Hold their precious love now As we take our vows. We give our hearts. We give our hands. We pledge to always be together Through the good and bad. Take my heart. Take my hand, too. Do I take you for forever with this vow? Yes forever and for ever with this vow. Dear one, I do. "Dear One" © 2014 Gary Milici & David Guilbault _________________________

Each Morning 02:41
"EACH MORNING" by David Guilbault Love grabbed me fast, caught in a daze, Losing track of the time and the place. I fell into her eyes. The spell of love hit me hard by surprise. Now she wakes me each morning with a smile; Loving eyes that drive me wild. What a beautiful way to start a morning. I have fallen in love with her day by day. Skin soft and warm as she lays by my side. Heaven knows this is good and it’s right. I can’t get over how happy I feel. She gives to me a love so tender and real. She wakes me each morning with a smile; Loving eyes that drive me wild. What a beautiful way to start a morning. I am falling in love with her more each day. My love’s renewed with each rising sun, When her eyes tell me I’m her only one, And her smile puts the light in my morning. I’m a complete man, sharing each morning with her.

"DEW-KISSED ROSE" by David Guilbault You, my love. I couldn’t stand to lose. The storm winds blowing the sorry news Would surely sweep my soul from my being, Leaving me cold And lost in the night. Beside you, under sheets so white, Your skin feels like a summer night, Warm as sun swept days, lost in the country, Far from the ways Of the city below. Soft you are and soft I’ll hold you, love, Like a petal of dew-kissed rose, dew-kissed rose. A man’ fulfilled at his lover’s breast, As she gives him peace and gentle rest From the rainstorms in his eyes. Slowly together, Starts the night on fire with their love. Soft you are and soft I’ll hold you, love, Like a petal of dew-kissed rose, dew-kissed rose. "Dew-Kissed Rose" © 1972 David Guilbault

Watchman 03:16
"WATCHMAN" by David Guilbault I must walk along her fear, like a watchman, And she will trust in me. And I won’t fail to keep her safely. And I won’t fail to keep my watch. I must protect her dreams, like a watchman, And she will dream in me. And I won’t fail to keep her restful. No, I won’t fail to keep my watch. On her own she went out unprotected. Tragically she went out unprepared. Now, I am here to stand beside her life. I am a man, devoted to her care. I must patrol her smile, like a watchman. And she will laugh with me. And I won’t fail to keep her happy. No, I won’t fail to keep my watch. On her own she went out unprotected. Tragically she went out unprepared. Now, I am here to stand beside her life. I am a man, devoted to her care. I must stand at her edge, like a watchman. And she will hold on to me. And I won’t fail to keep her living. No, I won’t fail to keep my watch. "Watchman" © 1975 David Guilbault

I Can't See 02:02
"I CAN'T SEE" by David Guilbault I’m looking out of a window That I can’t see out of. I’m looking through a doorway I can’t see through. Emotional blindness. Sight full of pain. I suppose my mind is Making my eyes insane. I can’t see what’s up, what’s out, what’s in. I can’t see what’s going on. I can’t see, by God, the state I’m in, The pain I’m in, how long it’s been. And I can’t see what’s ‘round the bend. I’m seeing things where there’s nothing. I’m seeing nothing clear. I’m clearing out the way For getting out of here. I can’t see what’s up, what’s out, what’s in. I can’t see what’s going on. I can’t see, by God, the state I’m in, The pain I’m in, how long it’s been. And I can’t see what’s ‘round the bend. "I Can't See" © 1995 David Guilbault

Paperwork 02:11
"PAPERWORK" by David Guilbault Someone knows your name. They know where you live. They’re up on your game. They’ve got the paperwork. You’re theirs ‘til the end. You’re theirs ‘til they’re through. They’re not through with you yet. They’ve got the paperwork. Follows you around. Hardly makes a sound ‘til you’ve been found by the paperwork. This one’s due on the ninth. This one says the twelfth. This one says do this And that one says do that. It’s not about life. It’s not about love. It’s not about art. It’s about the paperwork. Follows you around. Hardly makes a sound ‘til you’ve been found by the paperwork. I’m gonna burn down all the trees. Tear eve’ry one of ‘em down So I can't be found... Follows you around. Hardly makes a sound ‘til you’ve been bound by the paperwork. "Paperwork" © 1996 David Guilbault

"CLOSE TO MY HEART" by David Guilbault Close to my heart. Far from my sight. My darling daughter how I miss you tonight. We broke apart because of the heartbreak That comes when a family breaks in two. I miss you dear son, your smile and your laughter. Your happy life is all that I’m after. We can’t be together because you were taken When our family broke in two. I was lost. You both were torn In the battles of hate and scorn. Someday you’ll know just what is true. No one will ever love you more than I do. Now I’m alone and you’re far away. I want to be part of your every day. You need my wisdom. You need my care. You need my love and I need to be there. Now I’m lost. You both are torn By the battles by hate and scorn. Someday you’ll know just what is true. No one will ever love you more than I do. Close to my heart. Far from my sight. My darling children how I miss you tonight. "Close to My Heart" © 1996 David Guilbault

Ev’ry tick and tock and striking Of the clock that I am livin’ for. Oh, uh, oh. Oh, uh, oh. Oh, uh, oh. Uh, uh, oh. Time is something that is nothing But a notion we can’t own. We can take our time until it’s up And life is all but flown. Ev’ry single day and ev’ry night And ev’ry year goes by. Still there’s nothing we can do to Really stop the time that flies. Oh, uh, oh. Oh, uh, oh. Oh, uh, oh. Uh, uh, oh. Gimme, gimme, gimme more time. Gimme, gimme, gimme more time. There is so much more in store and More for me to see and do. Ev’ry minute left in life is Really meant to live it through. Oh, uh, oh. Oh, uh, oh. Oh, uh, oh. Uh, uh, oh. (2X) "Gimme More Time" © 2009 David Guilbault _________________________

"LIVING LARGE IN MY DREAMS" by David Guilbault I’m living life in my sleep. Reality ain’t what it seems. I close my eyes, the curtains rise. I’m living large in my dreams. They got places I’ve never been. I go there now ev’ry now and then. I fall to sleep and there I am. I’m living large in slumber land. Here come the places. There they go. Here come the faces. There they go. Here lie the traces I should know. I’m living large in my dreams. I go to bed late at night. I sleep the day, past morning light. I find my way through a dreamscape. I’m living large, not awake. This life is rich with real delight. I see things not seen in light. The darkness brings what daylight can’t. I’m living large in this land. Here come the places. There they go. Here come the faces. There they go. Here lie the traces I should know. I’m living large in my dreams. I can’t tell what’s going on. The colors pale into a song. There is wonder in the scenes. I’m living large. Or so it seems. The world that’s real is not for me. This world inside is where I see. It moves and morphs like nothing else. I’m living large inside myself. Here comes a vision. There it goes. Here comes a reason. There it goes. Here lies the truth that I should know. I’m living large in my dreams. Don't wake me up. Let me sleep. I’m finding blinds that open deep. I’m loos’ning binds, all worldly-bound. I’m living large in what I found. I’m living life in my sleep. Reality ain’t what it seems. I close my eyes, the curtains rise. I’m living large in my dreams. "Living Large in my Dreams" © 2010 David Guilbault

"FULL MOON" by David Guilbault I’m flying through a full moon, Through a night of cobalt blue. It’s the strangest color hue I’ve ever seen. I’m flying through a full moon, Trying to fix a view. Plying my way through this inky sky. I’m afraid I’ll die. The moon is full. The night is strange. The moonlight blinds the eyes in pain. Nothing seems to be The way it’s supposed to be. Everything is out of phase. I’m flying through a full moon, Tumbling towards the gloom. Feeling the chills of doom through the flight. I’m afraid I’ll die. I got no plane. I got no wings. I’m falling free between my dreams. Too high above the ground. I hear a crashing sound. But there’s just underground for me. I’m flying through a full moon, I need something to hold on to, Something to help me hold on to the sky. ‘Cause I’m afraid I’ll die. "Full Moon" © 2010 David Guilbault
