Track Name: I Belong
"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.

Track Name: Dear One
"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?
I say I do.

As we vow to have and hold
We’ll be our shelter from the cold.

Share your smiles.
Share your joys.
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.
I say I do.

Track Name: Each Morning
"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.

Track Name: Dew-Kissed Rose
"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.

Track Name: Watchman
"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.

Track Name: I Can't See
"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.

Track Name: Paperwork
"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.

Track Name: Close to My Heart
"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.
