"AIN'T GONNA SLOW MY ROLL" by David Guilbault This ain’t no time to slow my roll. I’ve got miles and miles to go. I know deep down in my soul I ain’t done. All those voices, they still call. I’ve still got choices, after all. So much more to see and do. Yeah, I ain’t through. If I’m thinking straight, I can’t hesitate. It won’t matter what I lose. Take the time that’s left, Give it all my best. Keep on looking for the truth. This ain’t no time to slow my roll. I’ve more to say with what I know. Use my ragged, broken voice To make a joyful noise. If I’m thinking straight, I won’t hesitate. I’ll be damned with what I lose. Take the time that’s left, Give it all my best. Keep on looking for the truth. This ain’t no time to slow my roll In a world of tension, toil and toll. In a life of wonderment and woe. Ain’t gonna slow my roll.

This Life 02:42
"THIS LIFE" by David Guilbault Time has come to be a sage. To write this book. To fill this page. But, my story can’t be drawn, As memories fade. With remembrances gone. What do I have to say? What was this, anyway? This life? These loves? These times? There is so much I could tell, If only my past Wasn’t lost in a swell. The mist of time’s a feral thief, Robbing my mind. Of what it has seen. Impressions, one by one. All of them on the run. From this life, These loves, These times. I’m forgetting, day by day. The roles I made and the parts I played In this life, These loves, These times. This cruelty should not be, To strip a soul Of its memories. I can’t cherish what has been, If I can’t recall. The where and the when. So, I curse the God above, Who thought it wise to rob me of This life, These loves, These times. "This Life" © 2021 David Guilbault _________________________

"SOME LITTLE MOMENTS OF TRUTH" by David Guilbault Some little moments of truth. I know they’re out there. Some little moments of truth. They’re what I need. I could spend my whole life Looking for answers. Never find all the ones Thought to be true. But I’ve got to know All that’s worth being known. Being shown Some little moments of truth. Some little moments of truth Hide in the darkness. Some little moments of truth Dance in the sun. No matter where or when You may find them. What you learn from the truth Will show you the way. Oh, yes, I’ve got to know All that’s worth being known. Being shown Some simple moments of truth. Oh, yes, I’ve got to know All that’s worth being known. Being shown Some simple moments of truth.

"THE SOUNDS OF LONELINESS" by David Guilbault I can hear it, in the air. The sounds of loneliness. I can’t bear it, it’s ev’rywhere. These sounds of loneliness. I need love and life and laughter. I need hugs and smiling eyes. I need you to be right here with me. I need joyful days and nights filled with surprise. You can hear it, the quiet still. No one there to make a joyful noise. You can’t bear it, you never will. In the empty silence not much to enjoy. We need merry jubilation. We need loud and boisterous love. We need happy shouts rising wild and free. We need choirs of the lovely and beloved. The sounds I hear are lonely notes of sorrow. The sounds I hear are painful songs, so sad. Nothing in their rhythms for the ‘morrow. No hope, no joy, no love, no feeling glad. I can hear it, in the air. The sounds of loneliness. I can’t bear it, it’s ev’rywhere. These sounds of loneliness. I need love and life and laughter. I need hugs and smiling eyes. I need you to be right here with me. I need joyful days and nights filled with surprise. I need love and life and laughter. I need hugs and smiling eyes. I need you to be right here with me. I need joyful days and nights filled with surprise. "The Sounds of Loneliness" © 2021 David Guilbault _________________________

"I HAVE ENOUGH" by David Guilbault I have something you’ll never have. I have enough. With all this changing, This rearranging, I have enough. I’ve learned to live a life Simple and true. Roll with the punches. Go with the hunches. How about you? I only have one butt. I only need one chair. But, if you ask me nice, I’m happy to share. In a spirit of gratitude. I’m proud of this: I’ve been to places, And I’ve seen faces That brought me bliss. I only have one life. Have to live it full. Gotta take out the knife. Slice away the bull. You know it ain’t easy. But it’s worth the try. Less is more, now. Nothing more to score, now. Ease up my mind. Mind - over matter. Love - over stuff. Leave - what you’ve scattered. You - have enough. I have something you’ll never have. I have enough. The life that forms me. The loves that warm me. The spirit adorns me. I have enough.

"WHEN IT'S ALL SAID AND DONE" by David Guilbault When it’s all said and done It’s the love we have shown. It’s the joy we have known In our hearts. It’s the kindness we’ve shared. The feelings we’ve dared. Just being there, A hand in the dark. Giving love is ev’rything. It’s what to do for the gift of being. It’s what is true to the soul. When it’s all said and done, It’s the lives we have touched If we’ve given enough Of our hearts. It’s the friends we have helped When we’ve given ourselves With no need to be held In esteem. Giving love gives love’s return, Making life rich for the living. Takes the strife, strips it bare of worth, Leaving joyful jewels that only love can earn. For, what is life but giving love? What is love, but the giving? When it’s all said and done What’s the meaning of someone? It’s love, love, giving love. When it’s all said and done What’s the meaning of someone? It’s love, love, giving love. "When It's All Said and Done" © 2021 David Guilbault _________________________

about

LIFE: Indie Folk

When you are locked in self-quarantine for over a year, you get to thinking about the essence of life itself. These songs were all written in 2021 as we all pondered what makes us alive. All the tracks were produced in the home studio of Spencer Carlson, who did all the arranging, engineering, performing and producing.
