"THIS IS THE FIRST DAY" - David Guilbault & autOaudiO This is the first day. Counting them off now. One by one, 'til they’re gone. These stolen moments. Blessings and favors. Embrace them all, 'til 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 and 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. Losing time ‘til time is done. Done are the days of toil and toll. Body and mind, spirit and soul. And so it goes. Done are the days of toil and toll. Body and mind, spirit and soul. And so I go.

"BEEN AROUND THE SUN" - David Guilbault & autOaudiO Been around the sun, son, Too many times. Been around the sun, son. Nearly blinded my eyes. Been around the sun, son. Orbit’s on the wane. Goin’ ‘round the sun, holdin’ on to a cane. Days, they've been hard, son. Nights, they've been worse. Years, they've been rollin', Chartin’ a curse. Been around that sun, son. Circle keepin’ time. Goin’ ‘round the sun, gettin’ ready to die. ‘Round and ‘round, ‘round we go. Where we stop, ain't nobody knows. Just want it to go some more, Before I’m dropped at eternity’s door. Been around the sun, son, Maybe seen too much. Like the glow of the cosmic flow, The sting of the godly touch. Been around the sun, son. Now I think I know. When the sun goes dark, The light will show. ‘Round and ‘round, ‘round we go. Where we stop, nobody knows. Just want it to go some more, Before I’m dropped at eternity’s door. Been around the sun, son, So close to the end. Been around the sun, son, Doin’ what I can. Been around the sun, son. Don’t know why or when. Goin’ ‘round the sun, so close to the end. Goin’ ‘round the sun, so close to the end. Goin’ ‘round the sun. "Been Around the Sun" © 2013 David Guilbault _________________________

"MORE DAMAGE TO BE DONE" - David Guilbault & autOaudiO 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 To 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 ‘til I die? Will I suffer, will I suffer ‘til I die? Now, death stands at my door. A bandit on the run. Grave wounds I will endure. More damage, More damage, More damage, More damage - to be done.

I'm Gone 03:20 video
"I'M GONE" - David Guilbault & autOaudiO I’m at the gates of hell. They’re callin’ out my name. I know this place too well. For that I am ashamed. I’m gone. I am gone. I’m gone. I am gone. The light was gettin’ near. I didn’t want to go. There’s somethin’ fright’ning here, Hidden in the known. I’m gone. I am gone. I’m gone - where I’ve never been. I’m gone - and the sun don’t shine. I’m gone - ain’t no where or when. I’m gone – take my time. I’m gone – take my time. I am gone. So, look no more For me in light of day. I escaped the light When darkness laid its claim. I’m gone. I am gone. I’m gone. I am gone. I’m gone - where I’ve never been. I’m gone - and the sun don’t shine. I’m gone - ain’t no where or when. I’m gone – take my time. I’m gone – take my time. I’m gone. I am gone. I’m at the gates of hell. They’re callin’ out my name. "I'm Gone" © 2014 David Guilbault _________________________

"AIN'T NO WAY A-KNOWIN'" - David Guilbault & autOaudiO 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. 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’. Ain’t no way a-knowin’. Ain’t no way a-knowin’. Ain’t no way a-knowin’. Ain’t no way a-knowin’. Ain’t no way a-knowin’. Ain’t no way a-knowin’. Maybe, there just ain’t no after, after all. "Ain't No Way A-Knowin'" © 2018 David Guilbault _________________________

"WHAT'S LEFT OF ME - David Guilbault & autOaudiO 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. (4x) Then you’ll know that I’ll be windward bound. But, if you think of me, I’ll still be ‘round. You can take what’s left of me And shoot me into space. (4x) 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's left of me In the hearts of those I leave behind? You can take what’s left of me And hold me in your heart. (4x) 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 _________________________

about

"LEFT," by singer-songwriter David Guilbault and producer autOaudiO, is all about contemplating the end of life and the afterlife, with perhaps a little existential dread mixed in.

What the hell is all this? Where, in heaven's sake, are we? Who are we? What do we become? How does this all end? Where do we go? All questions. No answers. Just wonder and worry and wish and woe.

Songs written by David Guilbault. Arranged, engineered & produced by Paul Beaudry (autOaudiO), who made all the music tracks. Mastered by Ed Brooks at Resonant Mastering.
