"YOU COULD BE THE ONE" by David Guilbault You could be the one To break through all this pain. You could be the sun That breaks the rain, breaks the rain. ‘Cause you calm stormy skies When you look into my eyes. I can see the clouds Fade away. You could be the one. I’ve been searching for so long. Now that you are here Won’t you please stay? I know we’ve just begun To sing this lovely song. But, you could be the one. You could be the one. You could be the one ‘Cause I smile at your sweet glance. You could be the drum That makes me dance, makes me dance. My heart does happy flips Ev’ry time you kiss my lips. I can feel the joy Hold on to stay. "You Could Be the One" © 2018 David Guilbault _________________________

"WARM LOVE" by David Guilbault Warm love. When I’m with you, I feel Warm love, ardent and true. Warm love. Cozy and snug, I feel Warm love, Tender and new. It brightens up my view And burns away my blues. That’s your warm love. I’ve never felt this safe Before. I’ve been burned by the heat of lovers Scorned. But, this is the love, Yes, this is the love I’ve been waiting for. Warm love. There’s a hearth inside your heart. Warm love. It radiates you. Warm love. Its embers brave the winds. Warm love. Its fervor endures. It blazes and it roars, Ignites my soul to soar. That’s your warm love. Warm love. "Warm Love" © 2018 David Guilbault _________________________

"IN YOUR ARMS" by David Guilbault When the world starts closing in, And this life is filled with sin. There’s just one place I should be. Deep in your arms. So deep in your arms, my love. It’s cold and dark out there alone. But there’s a warmth inside this home. This is the place where I feel free. Deep in your arms. So deep in your arms. In your arms I feel the love that I deserve. In your arms I know love’s true. In your arms I am above all that’s absurd. I am at peace with you. Your embrace makes my heart swell. Holding on to you makes it all well. This is where I’m meant to be. Deep in your arms. So deep in your arms. Deep in your arms. So deep, So deep In your arms. "In Your Arms © 2018 David Guilbault _________________________

"AGAINST HOPE" by David Guilbault Eyes open. I was hopin' That we could see the light. Hearts are broken. Hurt is spoken. Our arrows take their flight. And I was hopin' They'd miss their mark. I was hopin', Against hope. Battles brewin'. Lives in ruin No one gets out alive. Blood is boilin'. Fights are spoilin'. Who won? No one survived. And I was hopin' That peace would come. I was hopin'. Against hope. (Instrumental) And I was hopin' For the best. I was hopin', Against hope. The war is over. No longer lovers. We put the others to the test. Still it lingers. Fingers on triggers. When will we put this thing to rest? And I was hopin' For an end. I was hopin', Against hope. "Against Hope" © 2017 David 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 made by the cane. 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 to get through, All these lonely nights That I spend with you. I have to lie to get through. "I Have to Lie" © 2018 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 _________________________

"LET LOOSE MY MIND" by David Guilbault I’d like to let loose of time, So I could live between its lines. Escape all its mines. Defuse all of mine. I’d like to let loose of time. I’d like to let loose of you, And all of the holds that you hold true. Take another view. Break right on through. I’d like to let loose of you. Let loose my mind. Let loose my mind. I’d like to let loose my mind. When your soul knows nothing is all right, When your brain is gripped in fear and fright, Let loose the pain. Let the heartaches wane. Let loose the chains that hold you tight. Let loose my mind. Let loose my mind. I’d like to let loose my mind. "Let Loose My Mind" © 2017 David Guilbault _________________________

"LONESOME" by David Guilbault Lonesome. It’s such a lonely word. Lonesome. A sad and lonely word. And it’s only in my heart Where it is heard. Lonesome. The hurt is held inside. Lonesome. You can not hear me cry. ‘Cause it’s only in my heart Where I can sigh. Yes, it’s only in my heart Where I can sigh. Lonesome ... Lonesome ... And it’s only in my heart Where it takes life. Yes, it’s only in my heart Where it shouts out loud, Where it wears no shroud, Where it makes its place onto a shrine. Lonesome. Out here in the world. Lonesome. Let no one know you hurt. It’s only in my heart Where lonely hides. Yes, it’s only in my heart Where lonely hides. Where lonely hides. It’s only in my heart. "Lonesome" © 2017 David Guilbault _________________________

"AIN'T NO WAY A-KNOWIN'" by David Guilbault Ain’t no way a-knowin’. Ain’t no way a-knowin’ Which way you may be goin’. Ain’t no way a-knowin’. No, there ain’t no way a-knowin’ where you’re gone. Yeah, there ain’t no way a-knowin’ where you’re gone. You can ponder and pout and shout and carry on. But, there ain’t no way a-knowin’ where you’re gone. Ain’t but what ya thinkin’. Ain’t but what ya thinkin’. All the blinkin’ and the winkin’ Ain’t but what ya thinkin’. No, there ain’t no way a-knowin’ where you’re gone. Yeah, there ain’t no way a-knowin’ where you’re gone. You can pray all day and still you will not know, If there’s a heaven or hell a-waitin’ at the show. Ain’t no way a-knowin’. Ain’t no way a-knowin’ Which way you may be goin’. Ain’t no way a-knowin’. Maybe there just ain’t no nothin’ there at all. Maybe, there just ain’t no after, after all. Ain’t no way a-knowin’. "Ain't No Way a-Knowin'" © 2018 David Guilbault _________________________

_________________________ "WHATEVER THIS IS" by David Guilbault There’s no way to understand this, ‘Cause I just don’t know Whatever this is. Elemental, existential, monumental angst. Wrack your brain, ya’ll. Go insane, ya’ll Just to learn the dance. And the dance is all that matters. Yes, the dance that we all know. Is it the dance that makes this matter? It’s just a dance, for all we know. There’s no way to understand life, ‘Cause I just don’t know Whatever life is. Fundamental, regimental, temperamental angst. Whack your brain, ya’ll. You’ll go insane, ya’ll When you learn this dance. And we dance just like it matters. Yes, the dance that we all know. But does the dance just sate the satyr? It’s just a dance, for all to know. There’s no way to understand death, ‘Cause I just don’t know Whatever death is. "Whatever This Is" © 2017 David Guilbault _________________________

_________________________ "WHATCHA KNOW" by David Guilbault I know I got a fascination With what that I don’t know. I know I got an obligation To find that what is so. Why is there an expectation That all will go awry? What can stop the devastation That comes from all these lies? So I wander all the day And I lie awake the night Wond’rin’ why. Why is it so? Watcha know, don’tcha know? There’s no time for concentration When hours pass so fast. There’s no time for consecration When life is all but had. There no need for elevation When all’s too high to see. There’s no need for execution With what that’s left of me. "Whatcha Know" © 2017 David Guilbault _________________________

Empty (Demo) 04:01
"EMPTY" by David Guilbault Empty. Empty. This world’s become so empty. Empty. Empty. This world’s become so empty. There’s something missing from this place. Look around and you won’t see a face That looks alive, that still has sight, That holds a glow of loving light. Empty. Empty. This life’s become so empty. Empty. Empty. This life’s become so empty. Hollow words and vacant eyes. Forsaken souls, vacated lives. Exhausted hearts beating their last sparks. Dying embers in a cold and darkened hearth. Empty. Empty. We’ve become so empty. Empty. Empty. We’ve become so empty. When the power’s gone it ain’t but gone. There ain’t no flow when it’s all drawn. The cells will die. The wells run dry. There ain’t no charge to spark the dawn. Empty. Empty. This world’s become so empty. "Empty" © 2018 David Guilbault _________________________

"GRAVITY" by David Guilbault Gravity. Gravity. Gravity has got me down. Gravity has got, oh gravity has got me down. Gravity has got, oh gravity has got me down. And I just seem to get up off the ground. I got the weight of the world sitting on my shoulders. I got trials and tribulations on my mind. I got battles born that I can’t bear to soldier. I got wounds of war that I can barely bind. I got wounds of war that I can barely bind. Gravity. Gravity. Gravity has got me down. Gravity has got, oh gravity has got me down. Gravity has got, oh gravity has got me down. And I just seem to get up off the ground. I got loads to bear that ought not be this heavy. I got rows to hoe that ought not be this dry. I got taxes and bills and debts and tithes and levies. I got worries and woes to make a grown man cry. I got worries and woes to make a grown man cry. I’ve fallen and I can’t get up. I’m crawlin’ ‘cause the weight's too much. I’m ballin’ like a baby fallen down the Hades bluff. I’m ballin’ like a baby fallen down the Hades bluff. Gravity. And I just seem to get up off the ground.

"WHAT'S LEFT OF ME" by David Guilbault You can take what’s left of me And put me in the ground. (4x) Then you’ll know that I’ll be dead and gone. But, if you grieve my name, I’ll still be ‘round. You can take what’s left of me And burn me into ash. Then you’ll know that I’ll be windward bound. But, if you hear my song I’ll still be ‘round. You can take what’s left of me And shoot me into space. Then you’ll know that I’ll be floating free. But, I’ll still be ‘round if you keep my memory. Body and Soul. Spirit and Mind. What is left of me In the dreams of those I left Behind? You can take what’s left of me And (know) (hear) (keep) (feel) me in your heart. Ashes and bones below or high above. What’s left of me is what I left of love. Ashes and bones below or high above. What’s left of me is what I left … What’s left of me is what I left … What’s left of me is what I left of love "What's Left of Me" © 2018 David Guilbault _________________________

"TAKES MY BREATH" by David Guilbault The blast is blowin’ through my brain. There ain’t no knowin’ what to do. Shoulda seen it comin’. Shoulda known it’s name. Shoulda known the gusts all came from you. And it takes my breath - away. Yeah, it takes my breath - away. Your storms keep churning through my life. Your gales are knocking down my trees. Your winds are wreaking Ruin, pain and strife. Your blows are making a wreck of me. And they take my breath - away. Yeah, they take my breath - away. And away, and away, Goes the air into the gray. And away, and away Goes the man who didn’t stay. The blast is blowin’ through my brain. There ain’t no knowin’ what to do. Shoulda seen it comin’. Shoulda known it’s name. Shoulda known the storms all came from you. And you take my breath - away. Yeah, you take my breath - away. "Takes My Breath" © 2018 David Guilbault _________________________

"WAVES OF BLUE" by David Guilbault Waves of blue, darkening my view. There’s a squall inside my brain. Foreboding skies, behind my eyes. Swirling winds of a hurricane. And it’s blowin’, it’s blowin’ like never before. With the deafening sound of emotional war. Didn’t feel it coming Again this time. Didn’t feel it rise up in my mind. Waves of blue that I can’t slip through. Winds of woe take away my breath. No warning signs before I’m terrorized. Falling fast into the depths. And it’s falling, I’m falling like never before. Into the hole that I abhor. Didn’t feel it coming Again this time. Didn’t feel it rise up in my mind. Waves of blue. What am I to do When they rise anew and take me down?

"ALL THE WAY THROUGH" by David Guilbault I saw the beast and the beauty in you. I saw the goodness and badness All the way through. You couldn’t hide it if you wanted to. ‘Cause it’s you. Yeah it’s you. All the way through. I saw what you wanted them all to see. I saw both of the faces That were hiding your mean. But, you know, you can’t hide it from me. ‘Cause it’s you. Yeah it’s you. All the way through. All the way through I see you all the way through. All the way through. I see you all the way through. They say the leopard can’t change its spots. Ain’t no new tricks you can Teach an old dog. Think it’s time that you knew that it’s true. ‘Cause it’s you. Yeah it’s you. All the way through.

"I AIN'T SURE" by David Guilbault I ain’t sure of anything that has to do with you. You sure won’t get a wedding ring until I think this through. I don’t know what you’re about, at least I can’t be sure. But surely there must be a doubt that you will be my girl. I really just can’t think of what to do, When all I know is I ain’t sure of you. Do ya wanna clue me in and give just a sign? Do ya wanna show yourself so I can make you mine? Tell me that you want me too and that you wanna say We should be together each and ev’ry single day. ‘Cause I really just can’t think of what to do. When all I know is I ain’t sure of you. This should be an easy thing, why can’t you make it so? Tell me that my doubts and fears should really up and go. Let me know you love me, dear, and that you’ll never stray. Show me that you want me too in each and ev’ry way. ‘Cause I really just can’t think of what to do. When all I know is I ain’t sure of you. I guess I’ll have to take a chance and tell you that “I Do.” But, boy oh boy, I hope this dance won’t leave me feeling blue. I’m pretty sure I’ll love you ‘till there ain’t no more to give. I’m pretty sure you’ll make my life just how it’s meant to live. Could you just say you really love me, true? ‘Cause I’m pretty sure that I’m in love with you.

"HEART RACE TO HEARTACHE" by David Guilbault You’ve got my heart racing strong Ever since you came along. I know just what I'd do If you ever said we’re through. (I’d go from) heart race to heartache Without you. (I’d go from) heart race to heartache Without you. My blood is beating like a drum. I’m out of breath from this love’s run. Don’t you ever go away. Darling dear, you gotta stay. (Or I’d go from) heart race to heartache Without you. (I’d go from) heart race to heartache Without you. Feeling love pump through my veins. This racing heart don’t know no pain. Your kisses keep this man alive. I wish you’d stay here by my side. ('Cause I’d go from) heart race to heartache Without you.

"I OWN YOU" by David Guilbault I own the coal mine. I own the jail. I own the county judge who sets your bail. I own the fact’ry. I own the hills. I own the comp’ny bank where you pay your bills. And I – I – own you. Oh, I – I – I own you. Pay me my tributes. Pay me your debts. What I leave behind is all you get. Work like a madman. Bow to the throne. You should give thanks for all the bones. ‘Cause, I – I – own you. Yeah, I – I – I own you. Ya think ya got freedom. Ya think ya got rights. I own the levers that move the might. I own the White House. I own the Hill. I own the courts and the armies that keep you still. And I – I – own you. Oh, I – I – I own you. You can march ‘till your feet hurt. Shout all you want.

"HEAR THE CHILDREN CALL" by David Guilbault Hear the children call. What’s that they say? They are marching in our streets. Hear the children call. Heed what they say. They are calling for a better way. They have voices strong, Pleading through their cries. Wiping teardrops from their eyes. They are loud and fierce So we can hear, They are tired of living in fear. Young warriors bravely march Into the fight. They will cower and hide no more. They have a battle cry, “Enough’s Enough.” They will shout it ‘til their throats are sore. Hear the children call. It’s their world now. It’s time for us to step aside. Hear the children call. Let them show us how To slay the darkness with their light. Hear the children call. What’s that they say? They are calling for a better way. "Hear the Children Call" © 2018 David Guilbault _________________________

"BROKEN IN TWO" by David Guilbault This has gone so terribly wrong, Watching helpless as our nation fell. Hateful voices loud and strong. Freedoms and choices now are quelled. Now we’re broken, broken in two. You hate me and I hate you. Broken. Broken in two. Across the great divide We’ve been arming to the teeth. We’ve got to save our side. Put an end to this tyranny. ‘Cause we’re broken, broken in two. You hate me and I hate you. Broken. Broken in two. It came slow and strong. Before we knew it our rights were gone. We are gripped in fear And the darkness is too near. This nation’s broken, broken in two. The monster at the door has broken through. There’s only one thing left to do. No more calls for peace. The time for calm has come and gone. Only one choice now. That’s to stand up against the wrongs. This broken nation will not survive, If we’re not willing to wage a fight. Peace and freedom will not endure Unless we’re ready to go to war. This has gone so terribly wrong, Watching helpless as our nation fell.

"A HAPPY SONG" by David Guilbault So, here it is, a happy song. A simple tune to sing along. It’s supposed to make you smile. I guess it will, a little while. I’d rather play the minor keys. That’s the sound that speaks to me. But if you need a happy song. I’ll try my best to play along. I like the birds. I like the bees. I love the oceans and the trees. I like you and I like me. Let’s all be what we can be. I’d rather play the minor keys. That’s the sound that speaks to me. Then the words all flow like waves And I have something real to say. But if you really want to smile While the world is under trial. I will sing this happy song. Even though it sounds all wrong. I’d rather play the minor keys. That’s the sound that speaks to me. But if you need a happy song. This was it. Now it’s done. "A Happy Song" © 2018 David Guilbault _________________________

"SOMETHING AIN'T RIGHT WITH YOU" by David Guilbault Something ain’t right with you. And I know, I know, I know it won’t be long. Something ain’t right with you. And it won’t be long before you come undone. It won’t be long before you come undone. Your brain is stalking ev’ry move I make. You mind is hunting down my thoughts. I know that talking is a big mistake This state of mind ought not be this fraught There’s something that ain’t right with you. There’s something that ain’t right with you. I’ve got to worry that you’ll do me harm. I’ve got to wonder where you are. I know that surely you will cause alarm And I will be the one to bear the scars. Yes, I will be the one to bear the scars. There’s something that ain’t right with you. There’s something that ain’t right with you. Something ain’t right with you. And I know, I know, I know it won’t be long. Something ain’t right with you. And it won’t be long before you come undone. No, it won’t be long before you come undone. No, it won’t be long before you come undone. Something ain’t right with you.

Trump (Demo) 02:22
"TRUMP" by David Guilbault I’ve sung some songs of you couched in clever wordplay. Sometimes my meanings get lost between the lines. So I’ll be clear and blunt and blurt out what I mean to say. There ain’t no use to cast my pearls before the swine. You’re a racist and a bully. You’re misogynistic, fully. And you don’t know how to please a woman. You’re insulting. It’s revolting. That thing on your head is molting. And you don’t know how to please a woman. You got a mushroom dick. Your other head is a brick. And the brains of your rubes you’ve been out numbin’. You got a potty mouth and a girly pout. And you don’t know how to please a woman. You’re a moron and a crime Don. Ivanka gives you a hard on. And we all know who you’ve been out doin’. You’re clueless. Useless. Putin’s little house bitch. And you don’t know how to please a woman. You got an outsized view of the worth of you. And the worth of you is less than nothin’. Your ego preens while your id careens. And you don’t know how to please a woman. You’re a braggart and a con man. You’re what swishes in a bed pan. And your judgment day is surely comin’. There I’ve said it. I don’t regret it. You’re an evil fucking shithead. And you don’t know how to please a woman. "Trump" © 2018 David Guilbault _________________________

"YOU'RE SO BUSY" by David Guilbault You’re so busy - You ain’t got time for nothing else. You’re so busy - Putting products on the shelf. You’re so busy - Working hard to earn some wealth. You’re so busy - You got no time to know yourself. You’re so busy - You got no time to know yourself. I woke the dark night - With this song inside my head. In the dawn light - It was waiting to be said. A waking warning - That shook and stirred me from my bed. My dearest darling - You’re gonna drive yourself to death. You’re so busy - Giving all to someone else. You’re so busy - Taking calls that cause you hell. You’re so busy – You’re so numb that you can’t tell. You’re so busy – You ain’t begun to know yourself. You’re so busy – You ain’t begun to know yourself. You gotta slow down - You gotta take some time to rest. This world’s a showdown - It’s out to put you to the test. But there’s a hoedown – Get a ticket to the fest. That’s the lowdown - You gotta give yourself the best. You’re so busy – You run yourself into the ground. You’re so busy – Your thoughts keep running 'round and 'round. You’re so busy – Looking for what you ain’t found. You’re so busy – You’re gonna wind up in the ground. You’re so busy – You’re gonna wind up heaven bound. "You're So Busy" © 2018 David Guilbault _________________________

"FOR SURE" by David Guilbault I know for sure that I can’t be certain ‘Bout how much you know about why I’m hurtin’. So, why don’t you come and tell me now, for sure. I got a feelin’ that you know somethin’ ‘bout how come I’m reelin’ from all this thumpin’. So, why don’t you come and tell me now, for sure. For sure, you ain’t been straight with me. For sure, the truth will set you free. Now is the time for you to be sayin’ ‘bout who’s out lyin’ and who’s out playin’ And who’s out tellin’ lies ‘bout me, for sure. If it’s you, it’s time to be ‘fessin’ ‘cause it’s long past due to be done with guessin’ So, why don’t you come and tell me now, for sure. For sure, you ain’t been straight with me. For sure, the truth will set you free. C’mon baby, let go of that burden, That tainted tall tale that I’ve been heard in. That pack of lies that hurt me deep, for sure. Clear your conscience from the sin of lyin’ And steer your life to the path of the righteous. Tell them all that you’ve been slanderin’. Tell them all that you’ve been slanderin’. Tell them all you’re the lyin’ one, for sure. "For Sure" © 2018 David Guilbault _________________________

"Walking in the Pouring Rain" by David Guilbault I love you. There ain’t nothin’ I can do. I think about you when I’m Walking in the pouring rain. It’s sad, but true. There ain’t nothin’ I can do. I think about you when I’m Walking in the pouring rain. Even though - you’re gone, I know The heartaches flow. The time runs slow – when I’m alone In deep sorrow. I miss you When the dark clouds form, I do. I think about you when I’m Walking in the pouring rain. The rain drops fall. The tear drops, I recall. I cry about you when I’m Walking in the pouring rain. Even though - you’re gone, I know The heartaches flow. The time runs slow – when I’m alone In deep sorrow. I feel you. You soak me through and through. I think about you when I’m Walking in the pouring rain. "Walking in the Pouring Rain" © 2018 David Guilbault _________________________

"ASKING FOR DEMOCRACY" by David Guilbault I’ve got some questions That are gnawing at my brain. This world right now has gone insane. Can we survive All this hatred, fear and shame? Is this the end of freedom’s reign? I’m not asking for me. I’m asking for democracy. Asking for democracy. Can we keep us all free? There are bigots, emboldened, Beholden to a man Who lies and cheats and cons all that he can. There are powers of graft and greed Who now control the land, Has fear enslaved the common man? The truth’s been crippled By the willful lies of fiends Who lie and steal and rape and kill and scheme. If you can’t feel it Then you won’t know what it means. Can’t you see what all this hatred brings? How will we fight the foul? How will we seize the day, And turn away the dark that grips our souls? How will we know the truth When truth is all but slain? Are you ready to fight the fight today? "Asking for Democracy" © 2019 David Guilbault _________________________

"DEEP SUSPICION AND DOUBT" by David Guilbault Poetry of the politician. Go and see the new inquisition. Oh, woe is me, I got Deep suspicion and doubt. Fingers pointed in all directions. Mobs anointed for the insurrection. Oh, woe is me, I got Deep suspicion and doubt. I doubt that we can get along. I doubt that we can right the wrongs. Bubbling rage of mass uprising. Troubling wage of slander and libel. Oh, help me now, I got Deep suspicion and doubt. Social flames burning the wicked. Woeful names learning they’re sickened. Oh, help me now, I got Deep suspicion and doubt. I doubt that we can do what’s right. I doubt that we can stop the blight. Allegation and accusation. Public shaming of reputation, Oh, damn me now, I got Deep suspicion and doubt. Won’t trust the news. Don’t check the science. Busted and blue from all the lying. Oh, fuck me now, I got Deep suspicion and doubt. Oh, fuck us now, we got Deep suspicion and doubt. "Deep Suspicion and Doubt" © 2019 David Guilbault _________________________

"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. "By His Own Lips" © 2019 David Guilbault _________________________

"MORE DAMAGE TO BE DONE" by David Guilbault Death stands at my door. Sayin’ time has not yet come. Life still has some more Damage to be done. Damage, more damage - to be done. I’ve had my share of hurt. Didn’t care much for the pain. Hard to tell what’s worse, The fortune or the fame. The fortune, the fortune - or the fame. Is it really not enough? Are there heartaches still in store? Did it have to be this rough? What was all the crying for? What was all, what was all - the crying for? Some have all the luck. Strokes of genius claimed. They suck up all the love Hear their herald name. They hear, they hear - their herald name. I was on the devil’s list. I was off the godly eye. Did I deserve all this? Will I suffer ‘till I die? Will I suffer, will I suffer - ‘till I die? Now, death stands at my door. A bandit on the run. Gave wounds I must endure. More damage, More damage, More damage, more damage - to be done.

"EVERTHUNG" by David Guilbault Everthung, I ever sung Never rung quite true. Everthung, I ever sung Was wrong ‘til I met you. Everthung that came to be Couldn’t be the truth. Everthung that oughta be Is what I see in you. In you I can see what’s blue. In you, everthung is new. Everthung, was always wrong Before you came in view. Everthung, was on the run Before you made it through. Everthung, that you could say Will cause me to declare. Everthung, that comes my way Is meant for me to share. I share the wisdom you have shown. I care that everthung is known. Everthung, I ever sung Never rung quite true. Everthung, I ever sung Was wrong ‘til I met you. Everthung that came to be Couldn’t be the truth. Everthung that oughta be Is what I see in you. "Everthung" © 2019 David Guilbault _________________________

"DO NOT CLIMB ON THE BUDDHA" by David Guilbault Do not climb on the Buddha. Leave that Buddha alone. Do not climb on the Buddha. Think about righting a wrong. Show some respect for the others. Show some regard for yourself. Do not climb on the Buddha. ‘Cause, we’re all like ev’ryone else. ‘Cause, we’re all like ev’ryone else. Don’t tear down your new neighbors. Don’t build up a new wall. Don’t tear down your new neighbors. Your neighbors are part of it all. Have some love for the hurting. Have some feel for the pain. Don’t tear down your new neighbors. Go out and learn their hard names. Go out and learn their hard names. No, do not climb on the Buddha. Your karma will damn you, I say. Do not climb on the Buddha. Let dharma show you the way. Let dharma show you the way. Do not climb on the Buddha. And think about the hatred you own. "Do Not Climb on the Buddha" © 2019 David Guilbault _________________________

"IN MY NAME" by David Guilbault I walked on water. Gave sight to the blind. The moneychangers, they all heard. On the Mount to preach. On the Cross to reach All the sinful hearts with Holy Words. What you do, in my name, in my name, What you do, brings you shame, and you’re to blame. What you do, what you do, gonna bring you flames. You broke the rules. Awoke the Screws. Now you’ve got a price to pay. When Judgment's done at Kingdom come, That’ll be your Reckoning Day. You do war and strife. You do dirty lies That you should not unto others do. You do theft and greed. You do unkind deeds. In my name, you molest the truth. You wear holy crowns when you put love down. You conquer and oppress and rule. You use pious words that bring pain and hurt, Perverted into sermons cruel. You light holy smoke. Wear cloaks of gold. Take money for their souls. Praise the Holy Ghost as you steal His coat, Wrapping comfort all around the fools. What you do, in my name, in my name, What you do, brings me shame, and I'm not to blame. What you do, what you do, gonna bring you flames. On the Mount to preach. On the Cross to reach All the sinful hearts with Holy Words. "In My Name" © 2019 David Guilbault _________________________

"TOUCH ME TONIGHT" by David Guilbault Won’t you touch me, tonight? I need your warm touch. I need it so much. Won’t you touch me, tonight? Won’t you touch me, tonight? Your fingers on my skin. I still remember them. Won’t you touch me, tonight? It’s been so long, dear, Since I’ve felt your touch. Our distance is wrong, dear. Our silence, too much. This cold chill between us, You know is not right. Rekindle the warmth, love. Won’t you touch me, tonight? Touch is the soul of the senses. Touch is the truth of the heart. The brush of fingertips, The softness of a kiss, And you know love’s found a spark. So, won’t you touch me, tonight? Let me know that our love’s alive. Let me feel that it will survive. Won’t you touch me, tonight? Won’t you touch me, tonight? Your fingers on my skin. I still remember them. Won’t you touch me, tonight? Won’t you touch me, tonight? I need your warm touch. I need it so much. Won’t you touch me, tonight? "Touch Me Tonight" © 2019 David Guilbault _________________________

"THAT WIND LEFT ME ALONE" by David Guilbault Well, I woke up in the mornin’ ‘fore that wind came blowin’ down. Yeah, I woke up un the mornin’ ‘fore that wind blew all around. It was howlin’ and a growlin,’ Plowin’ down the houses of this town. Well, I guess I am a lucky one, ‘cause that wind, it spared my life. Yeah, I guess I am a lucky one. Can’t say the same for my dear wife. ‘Cause that wind, it blew her away And dropped her ‘cross the county line. That wind left me alone. Yeah, that wind left me alone. That wind, she know’d. Now, me and the missus, We never did see eye to eye. Yeah, me and the missus, All we did was fight and fight. That wind musta know’d that it was time For us to say goodbye. Well, now I’m blowin’ kisses To ev’ry sweet girl that I see. Yeah, me, I’m blowin’ kisses Up and down this blown down street. I guess that I should thank that wind For knowin’ who to kill and who to keep. "That Wind Left Me Alone" © 2019 David Guilbault _________________________

"IN THE TRUTH" by David Guilbault We’ve got to live In the Truth. We’ve got to live In the Truth. The light that shines - on the lies sometimes Breaks through. And our eyes that hide - from the hurt inside Can trust the view When we live, when we live In the Truth. Dishonesty will wound our souls. This treachery will leave us cold. The lies we tell - to hide ourselves Will bring us down. A life - of well-lived grace Cannot be found, ‘Till we live, ‘till we live In the Truth. Truth is hard - when it drops the guard Of faith we hold. But, truth can’t free - what is meant to be Until it’s told, Until it’s told, Until it’s told. We’ve got to live In the Truth. We’ve got to live In the Truth. Break the chains - that hold our shame In fearful guile. Call its name, - let us all proclaim The honest cry. That we live, that we live In the Truth.

"THIS IS THE FIRST DAY" by David Guilbault This is the first day. Counting them off now. One by one, until they’re gone. These stolen moments. Blessings and favors. Embrace them all, until they’re gone. Gone from this life of wondrous woe. Body and mind, spirit and soul. And so it goes. This is the first day. Cherish them all now. Look to the loves that you have sown. Thank ev’ry heartbeat. Rejoice in the kindness. Awake to an unrelenting dawn. Dawn brings a cure of light of hope. Body and mind, spirit and soul. And so it goes. This is the first day. The die it is cast now. Fate is forged in kingdom come. Born to the unknown. Warmed by my children. Owning time ‘til time is done. Done are the days of toil and toll. Body and mind, spirit and soul. And so I go. "This is the First Day" © 2019 David Guilbault _________________________

"AND A SONG FALLS OUT" by David Guilbault I pick up my guitar and a song falls out. I start to tell a story. Waitin’ and a-wondrin’ what it’s all about. I guess I shouldn’t worry. Write what you know. Write what you see. Write down the words that need to be. Let that little story tell itself. You know it has a rhythm. Hum it out loud ‘till it jumps and shouts. And makes you feel like singin’. Sing what you know. Sing what you see. Sing out the tunes that need to be. That’s my little story, now it’s told. It came out in a heartbeat. I know it’s really simple but ya gotta know That the muses made it sound sweet. Hear what is blue. Feel something new. Show the world that you can tell what’s true. I pick up my guitar and a song falls out. "And a Song Falls Out" © 2019 David Guilbault _________________________

"A SONG FALLS OUT (REDUX)" by David Guilbault I pick up my guitar and a song falls out. I don’t even know what it’s all about. I keep on strummin’, keep on hummin’ along.

So I say sumpin’ ain’t said enough. Tell ‘em the truth. Tell ‘em what they oughta know. I know it ain’t right this world we’re in. So I can sing a song that rattles the sin. Hey, hey, that’s what I say. Hey, hey, hey, that’s what I say Say what you will. Say what you know. Say what will last long past the show. Say what is true. What’s true for you. What’s true for ev’ry one you know. I pick up my guitar and a song falls out. Now I know for sure what it’s all about. I keep on preachin’, keep on reachin’ for truth. I pick up my guitar and a song falls out. All the wondrous wisdom fallin’ all about. Hey, hey, hear what I say. Hey, hey, hey, hear what I say. Say what you will. Say what you know.

"LUCKY TONIGHT" by David Guilbault I’m headin’ home. I’m feelin’ tired to the bone. Then I see the wink of your eye. You’re lookin’ at me like a sweet honeybee. I think I’m getting’ lucky tonight. Headin’ straight for the door, Hadn’t made it before You put me square into you sights. You took me all in like you’re ready for sin. I think I’m gettin’ lucky tonight. Lucky, oh lucky. I think I’m getting’ lucky tonight. Lucky, oh lucky. I think I’m gettin’ lucky tonight. I don’t know what to say. I’ve never seen you this way. Your heat is such a pleasant surprise.

Give the glances a rest ‘cause the answer is yes. I think I’m getting’ lucky tonight. "Lucky Tonight" © 2019 David Guilbault _________________________

"YELLOWCAKE" by David Guilbault (Inspired by Theo Dzielak & Stephen Jennings) Hot-wired a car. Stole whisky from the bar. Played the highest stakes. Won a rattlesnake. Now I’m taking to the road With my girl and a can of Yellowcake. Cops are on my trail. Ain’t gonna go to jail. This uranium waste, makes ‘em stick to the chase. Now I’m on the open road With my girl and a can of Yellowcake. Pistol by my side, for the final ride. Got a cargo of doom. Gonna make it boom. Now I’m on a mission road With my girl and a can of Yellowcake. I see the black and whites. I see the flashing lights. I hear the sirens scream. I know what that means. Now I’m driving off the road With my girl and a can of Yellowcake. There’s a rattle and hiss. Something’s gone amiss. Where’s that fearsome snake? There’s a piercin’ ache. Now I’m crashing off the road With my girl and a can of Yellowcake. It’s the venom, ya know, that’ll stop your show. It’ll choke your breath. Lay your plans to rest. Now I’m dying by the road With my girl and a can of Yellowcake. "Yellowcake" © 2019 David Guilbault

"CRYING INSIDE" by David Guilbault Crying inside. I can feel the blood. I can hear the moan. Crying inside. Wet down to the bone. Far away, so distant now The river cuts and turns, Burnishing a canyon in the soul. All the maps so carefully drawn Have now been torn and burned. No compass made could ever show the way. Here alone, I mark the time Down without a count. The sucker punch that knocked me off my feet. Didn’t see the rage that rose From blows that made no sound. Didn’t know the damage they would reap. Bone of contention. Bane of my love. How could you be so mean and cold? Crying inside. The blood will boil. The talk run cruel. Crying inside. Hurt down to the bone.

"LOVE CAN BE MADE" by David Guilbault We are made of ev’rything. Ev’rything is made of stardust. Stardust is made from nothingness in time. Time is but the beat of ev’rything. We are made of mystery. Mystery is made of semblance. Semblance is made from nothingness to know. To know is but a mystery. But, love, love, can be made. Love, love, can be made. Love, love, can be made. Love, love, can be made. We are made of flesh and blood. Flesh and blood is made to suffer. Suff’ring is made from nothingness inside. Inside is but a place to feel. But, love, love, can be made. Love, love, can be made. Love, love, can be made. Love, love, can be made. "Love Can Be Made" © 2020 David Guilbault

"NO ONE SHOULD DIE ALONE" by David Guilbault No one should die alone, With no one by their side To help them home. With no one to hold their hand As they go. No one should live alone, Without a face filled with grace When they get home. Without a smile for e’ry trial That they have known. Together, we should be. Much better, for the company. No one should be alone. No one should cry alone. Lonely grief will wound your soul And hurt your bones. Leave you nothing left to lose When you’re alone. Together, we should be. Much better, for the company. No one should be alone. Together, we should be. Much better, for the company. No one should die alone. "No One Should Die Alone" © 2020 David Guilbault

"MILK AND HONEY" by David Guilbault In the land of milk and honey There are pantries left cold and bare. There are fam’lies with nothin’ plenty While the bankers trade their shares. In the land of milk and honey It’s the money and the oil. It’s the poppies and the bank notes. It’s the power to rule it all. In the land of milk and honey It’s a struggle to make your way When the boss man and the taxman Control your hard-earned pay. In the land of milk and honey They make weapons and badges too, To keep borders and world orders And to keep an eye on you. In the land of milk and honey There are fun things to catch your eye, To make you happy and distracted, Make you wanna buy and buy. In the land of milk and honey You gotta grab all you can get From the weak ones and the meek ones, While the bosses buy the jets. In the land of milk and honey You better put your faith up there. Ain’t nobody gonna help you When your pantry’s left cold and bare. "Milk and Honey" © 2020 David Guilbault

"FAR AWAY" by David Guilbault I can’t hold you close When you need me most, My love. I can’t hold your hand While a sickness grips the land, My love. Far away. We must stay so far apart. It breaks my heart. Wish you could be here To brush away my fear, My love. I feel so all alone Trapped inside this home, My love. Far away. … My heart longs to be right next to you. To feel your breath and touch your skin. All this distance brings teardrops to my eyes, From the fear and loneliness within. I’m terrified to know That this feeling may not go, My love. Will I hold you once again, Feel you skin to skin, My love? Far away. … "Far Away" © 2020 David Guilbault

"AS ONE" by David Guilbault When the stars go out There will be a light Shining within you. Darkness will fail. And the spark of you Will light up the pathways. The universe will see you and open up a place. And you will be as one with time and space. When the world is done And there are no more Heartaches and suff’rings. You’ll go on, A cosmic flame Searing the skyways. The universe will free you from your corp’ral pain. And you will be as one with ev’rything. When the souls are one And the endless void Collapses to nothing. No more. No one. Ever after comes Beating one heartbeat. The universe will faint in the blinking of an eye. And you will be as one eternal sky. "As One" © 2020 David Guilbault

"FACE IN YOUR GLASS" by David Guilbault I’m just a face in your glass, On these days that won’t last. Just a face in your glass, all alone. In a box on your screen, From some far away dream. Just a face in your glass, from my home. Together alone. I can send you my love But I can’t share my touch. I’m just a face in your glass, after all. But, from my far off distant room I can help you face the gloom, With just a face in your glass, and a smile To help for a while. Help, you know is on the way. Until then I’ll have to stay … Just a face in your glass Bringing trust that this shall pass. Just a face in your glass, feeling strong. ‘Cause the time will come again When you can kiss and hug your friends. And their faces will be in your loving eyes. Within your touch, within your sight. And we’ll all face a dawning light. "Face in Your Glass" © 2020 David Guilbault

"BADGE OF PEACE" by David Guilbault I had my hands up in the air. I was dropping to my knees. My life halted in a gunshot flare. From behind the badge of peace. From behind the badge of peace. People crying out loud in the streets. Got their hands up in the air. Ain't gonna get down on their knees. Standing up against the fear. For Michael Brown, fight the fear. I had my head up in the air. I was standing my rightful ground. A chokehold took my breath away. Badge of peace took me out. Badge of peace took me out. People crying out loud in the streets. Raising voices in the air. Calling out against the badge of peace. Standing out against the fear. For Eric Garner, fight the fear. I can't take a chance out in the air. Can't stand on my own street. Deadly stalkers out there everywhere Carrying the badge of peace. Carrying the badge of peace. People crying out loud in the streets. Can't take it any more. Won't stand down 'til there's justice done. Wearing the badge of war. Wearing the badge of war. Wearing the badge of war. "Badge of Peace" © 2014 David Guilbault

"LIKE YOU AND ME" by David Guilbault I see you are out now, awakened to see That there’s a poor man hurtin’ like you and me. His hands are all broken, tryin’ to break free. He’s but a poor man hurtin’ like you and me. Like you and me, oh, like you and me. He’s but a poor man hurtin’ like you and me. Look all around you. What do you see? People are shouting out loud for equality. They’re looking for justice. They’re crying for peace. They’re out in the streets oh, like you and me. Like you and me, oh, like you and me. They’re out in the streets, oh, like you and me. Ain’t we all the same? Who started this dirty game? Your neighbors are righteous. Your allies now true. Standing for those who are shackled and left to the ruin. Their voices have passion. Their spirits yet free. They’re marching as one, in power, like you and me. Like you and me, oh, like you and me. We’re marching as one, in power, like you and me. We’re marching as one, in love, like you and me. We’re marching as one – you and me. "Like You and Me" © 2020 David Guilbault

"SERVE AND PROTECT" by David Guilbault There’s a thin blue line - ev’ryone now sees. Where your silent code - threatens decency Your rules of engagement are deadly and dire On the streets now charred from our angry fire. You stand barricades – to protect the strong From the rightful rage – of those done wrong. You bring weapons and forces of the boss To overpower the cries of suffering and loss. Who do your serve with the badge and the gun? Whose protection rackets do you run? Who do you serve and protect? The decks are stacked – against the poor. The others are jailed and killed – to protect the store. You round them up in the name of order and law. Take the sweat of their brows to build it all. Who do your serve with the badge and the gun? Whose protection rackets do you run? Who do you serve and protect? We all know the way – that this must end. There must come this day – for justice to win. End the violence of unbridled badge and gun. Know that then the healing has begun. Who do your serve with the badge and the gun? The lives that matter who’ve been on the run. Who do you serve and protect? "Serve and Protect" © 2020 David Guilbault

"I AIN'T GOT NO MORE TO SAY" by David Guilbault Facing down the time When there ain’t no more to rhyme. I ain’t got no more to say. Ev’rything’s been said. Got no new thoughts in my head. I ain’t got no more to say. What I’m tellin’ you is I Think my time is through. This may be my last refrain. Listen very close To the musings of the ghost. I ain’t got no more to say. I’ve said it all before. Ain’t no need to say no more. I ain’t got no more to say. The writing’s on the wall, And I think I’ve said it all. I ain’t got no more to say. You know that it’s all true, What I’ve been tellin’ you. But you don’t hear a word I say. You ain’t dancin’ to my tune ‘Cause the beat is doom and gloom. So, I ain’t got no more to say. What I’m tellin’ you is you Missed it through and through. The nuance and insight and the pain.

"THIS DEBT" by David Guilbault I’m sittin’ here drinkin’ - alone again From a bottle of bitter regret. The pain washes down all the worry and fear That I‘ll never pay off this debt. What I owe is so overwhelming, That I’ll never pay off this debt. You saved me from ruin and - made me anew, When I squandered all that was good. The debt that I owe you is - long overdue I’d pay you if only I could. What I owe is so overwhelming. What I owe is more than you know. What I owe for your - understanding and more Are blessings that I can’t bestow. So, I’m feeling guilty for - failing you so, When you were there, loyal and true. You stood by my side when - I lost it all. There’s too much that I’m owing you. What I owe is so overwhelming, That I’ll never pay off this debt. What I owe is so overwhelming, That I’ll never pay off this debt. So, I’m cryin’ here - alone again ‘Cause I’m just not up to the task. I’m just a man who keeps - trying and then I disappoint you at last. What I owe is so overwhelming. What I owe is more than you know. What I owe for your - understanding and more Are blessings that I Wish I could provide. But, I’ll never pay off this debt. "This Debt" © 2020 David Guilbault

"LONELY TONIGHT" by David Guilbault I am feeling lonely tonight. I know it’s oft been said. I’m not alone with this deep dread. That don’t change how long and hard this hurts. I know I’m not the only one to feel Pangs of disregard When there’s no one in your heart. That don’t change the panic and the fear. I fear I’ll be alone forever. I don’t know how I’ll survive. I ain’t been so clever To know whatsoever How to keep my hope alive. Lonely tonight. Lonely tonight. All alone in this empty home. Lonely tonight. I am feeling desperate tonight. Don’t know what I could do, To find a way to get on through, Out of all this darkness to the light. Is this the end of all my romance? No more loves to warm my nights? A solitary man? I don’t think I can See a way to live this life. I am feeling lonely tonight. No one near to hear my sigh. No love light in my eyes. Just emptiness and loneliness are here. No sweet and loving voice to whisper ‘dear.’ Lonely tonight. Lonely tonight. All alone in this empty home. Lonely tonight. "Lonely Tonight" © 2020 David Guilbault

"HAD IT ALL" by David Guilbault Thought I had it all. Was ridin’ hard and tall. Didn’t know I’d take a fall into the darkness. Riches at my feet. Bounties at my feast. Didn’t worry ‘bout the beast that would devour me. Oh, shoulda known this was my fate. Oh, shoulda known it, That darkness was the place that I’d make home. That darkness was the place that I’d make home. Yeah, once I had it all. True mirrors in the hall, That showed me I was all of that and more. Called out all the shots. Earned ev’rything I got. What I got was a cold and frightful drowning. Oh, wasn’t ready for the splash. Oh, the revelation, That darkness was the place that I’d make home. That darkness was the place that I’d make home. Home again. Alone again. With no one there to light the dark’ning pall. With no one there to know I had it all. Thought I had it all. All at my beck and call. Didn’t know I’d take a fall into the darkness. "Had It All" © 2020 David Guilbault

"NEW WAY SONG" by David Guilbault There’s a new song that I’m singing, Full of love for better days. I hear the notes come cross the meadows And the bays, This tragedy will soon be over. Everything’s about to change. There’s a new way we can bargain, Full of gratitude and care. We can be each others’ keepers If we dare. I see us reaching out together, Bringing joy with what we share. Share with me and I’ll share with you. It’s a new way for us to be. Come along and sing this new way song. We’re all one big family. This ain’t no Pollyanna musing. This ain’t no pie up in the sky. We have to stop what we’ve been doing That makes us cry. Let’s put this fear and grief behind us. Let’s share the happiness this time. Share with me and I’ll share with you. It’s a new way for us to be. Come along and sing this new way song. We’re all one big family. Come along and sing this new way song. We’re all one big family. "New Way Song" © 2020 David Guilbault

"GET ALONG" by David Guilbault Stop all the fighting words. Listen to the singing birds Sing their song. Get along. Put down your sward and gun. Listen to the healing love. Sing a song. Get along. Get along is the only way. Get along is the choice to make. Stop all the fighting words. Listen to the singing birds Sing their song. Get along. Listen to your beating heart. Stop all the fights you start. Sing a song. Get along. Feel the joy in your soul. Listen to it as it flows. Sing a song. Get along Get along is the thing to do. Get along will see you through. Listen to your beating heart. Stop all the fights you start. Sing a song. Get along. I know this ain’t my usual tune. I’m always singing doom and gloom. But when things go right to wrong We all gotta get along. So, reach out in brotherhood. Listen for all the good. Sing its song. Get along. Rise up your voice in peace. Share it with your enemies. Sing their song. Get along. Get along is what is right. Get along will bring the light. Reach out in brotherhood. Listen for all the good. Sing a song. Get along. "Get Along" © 2020 David Guilbault

"FOR YOURSELF" by David Guilbault If you think you can change - then prove it. I won’t re-arrange my - life for you. You gotta do - what you do For yourself. It’s selfish I know - to tell you. I will not go - along with you Until you do - what you do For yourself. I can’t make you what you’re not. You have to show me what you’ve got. All the promises made - are hollow. I can’t take it by faith - anymore. There is more - to be done For yourself. Don’t tell me you really – mean it. Don’t sell me on what is – yet to be done. Feel my pain. Be the change For yourself. We both know who you could be. Do it for you, not for me. If you think you can change - then prove it. I won’t re-arrange my - life for you. You gotta do - what you do For yourself.

"HEAVY HEART" by David Guilbault Healing a heavy heart You’ve infected. Healing a heavy heart. You hurt us down to the bare of the bone. You tore us all apart With your lies and grift and the art of the con, You made ev’rything turn dark. This land we love is divided in two. We’re at each others’ throats. All this trauma and grief can be blamed on you. You made all good things implode. Streets on fire. Fam’lies dying alone. Cops with knees on our necks. Kids in cages. Quarantined in our homes. You made money off the unrest. The time has come for you to be gone. You sullied all that you touched. You’ll get yours when justice is done. We’ll be free of the disgust. "Heavy Heart" © 2020 David Guilbault
