Track Name: I Belong - Redux (Demo
"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.

"SINGING OUR BLUES" by David Guilbault

I don’t live in a make-believe world.
I don’t believe that I should.
I don’t wish on a make-believe star.
I only wish that I could.

My life is real. It really is hard.
This is hardly breaking news.
All that I know is that life is a show,
We’re all just singing our blues.
We’re all just singing our blues.

You can live in a make-believe world.
But believing won’t make it so.
You can wish on a make-believe star.
But wishing won’t stay the woe.

Your life is real. It really is hard.
This is hardly breaking news.
All you can do is give it a go.
We’re all just singing our blues.
We’re all just singing our blues.

If I thought I could change the world
Just by seeing it so,
I would embrace all the hurt that it holds
And then let all of it go.

But I know that ain’t the way of the world.
The way of the world is to use.
Believe it or not, there’s one thing for sure.
We’re all just singing our blues.
We’re all just singing our blues.

"DARK BLACKTOP ROAD" by David Guilbault

Heater is cold.
Engine is hot.
Pedal to the metal
Won’t give what I got.

Smoke out my pipe.
Steam out my hood.
Needles all pinnin’.
Ain’t looking real good.

Gotta get where I’m goin’
Before my whole head explodes.
Headin’ to the bottom
Down a dark blacktop road.
Down a dark blacktop road.

Fluids are low.
Fever is high.
Meter is runnin’.
Fixin’ to die.

Nothin’ more left.
No more to lose.
Half tank of gas.
The dank of my blues.

Gotta get where I’m goin’.
Go where I know.
Drivin’ to the bottom
Down a dark blacktop road.
Down a dark blacktop road.

"THE NIGHT WORE ON" by David Guilbault

She wore a satin dress.
It made her look her best.

When he came around,
He wore the smile of his sound.

And the night wore on.

He wore a cowboy hat.
It made him feel all that.

When she came to hear,
She wore the smile of her cheer.

And the night wore on.
And the night, sweet night, wore on.

And the nights wore on.
And they smiled, smiled with song.
And their love, love grew strong.
And their nights, sweet nights, wore on.

They wore each other’s ring.
They swore to laugh and sing.

Together they would stay
And make the music play.

And their nights, sweet night wore on.
And their songs, sweet songs, played on.
And their love, sweet love, stayed strong.

"COME INSIDE" by David Guilbault

Here it comes.
Here we go again.
You’re out there standing in the pouring rain.

Dry your eyes.
Dry your eyes.
Dry your eyes.
Come inside.

We can work this out.
We can find a way.
We can listen to what each other has to say.

Dry your eyes.
Dry your eyes.
Dry your eyes.
Come inside.

Love lives here.
Love has no fear.

Take my hand.
Kiss my lips.
Our world can’t get any better than this.

Look in my eyes.
Look in my eyes.
Look in my eyes.
Come inside.

Love lives here.
Love has no fear.

This is how it was meant to be.
I’m here for you and you’re here for me.

Open your eyes.
Open your eyes.
Open your eyes.
Come inside.

Come inside.
Love lives here.

"TIME RUN SLOW" by David Guilbault

I miss my friends. They’re passing by too fast.
Then and now. Come and go. Here and gone.
If I could bend all the time we spend too fast.
I’d make it run in a circle too slow.

Make the time you have run slow.
Make it answer to your soul.

When I saw you last you had smiles and smiles to spare.
When I see you now I forget all your joy.
Life turns too fast from pleasure to despair.
Nothing’s meant to last beyond what time destroys.

Make the time you have run slow.
Make it answer to your soul.

The space we fill is ours to have and hold.
No place in time can ever be again.
Face your days, waste no moments, live them bold.
Hold them dear, keep them near, they’re your friends.

Make the time you have run slow.
Make it answer to your soul.
I miss my friends.
They’re passing by too fast.

"UNTIL THE TIME IS GONE" by David Guilbault

Come and walk with me awhile.
It’s been so long since I’ve seen your smile.
Take my hand. Understand
That I am here for you right now.

It’s been a long time, my friend.
And I’m so happy just to see you again.
If you need, a friend indeed,
Look my way, take my hand.

'Cause I’m not going anywhere.
I’m gonna be right here
Until the time is gone,
Until the time is gone for me and you.

Who’s to say wha's gonna be?
But, here today, you can look to me.
I’ll be standing here.
Reach for me, dear.
I can help you hold on, look and see.

I’m not going anywhere.
I’m gonna be right here
Until the time is gone,
Until the time is gone for me and you.

Come and walk with me awhile.

Track Name: Raise Your Voice (Demo)
"RAISE YOUR VOICE" by David Guilbault

Raise your voice. Even if it shakes.
Raise your voice. Do what it takes.
Raise your voice. Let it be heard.
Raise your voice. Raise your voice.

Raise your voice. Raise it out loud.
Raise your voice. Make your heart proud.
Raise your voice. Make yourself heard.
Raise your voice. Raise your voice.

Raise your voice. Do not be shy.
Raise your voice. Raise it to the sky.
Raise your voice. You will be heard.
Raise your voice. Raise your voice.

When you raise your voice
All will start to hear
The truth that’s rising in the air.

You’ve got to raise your voice
When evil’s thunder roars.
You’ve got to drown out evil’s noise.
You’ve got to drown out evil’s noise.

Raise your voice. Even if it shakes.
Raise your voice. Do what it takes.
Raise your voice. Let it be heard.
Raise your voice. Raise your voice.
Raise your voice. Raise your voice.

Track Name: I'll Go High (Demo)
"I'LL GO HIGH" by David Guilbault

When you go low, I’ll go high.
Throw your low blow. I won’t bat an eye.

You can play your game of fear. It won’t hurt me none.
‘Cause I will still be here
When all is said and done.
‘Cause I go high.

When you preach hate, I’ll show love.
When you denigrate, I’ll rise above.

You can spread your web of lies, I will tell the truth.
You can darken people’s eyes, I’ll give them a clear view.
‘Cause I go high.

High. I’ll go high.
High. I’ll go high. I go high.

When you mock and slam, I’ll offer peace.
When you clench your hand, I’ll turn a cheek.

You can bring a world of hurt, I won’t play along.
You can wallow in the dirt,
I will rise in song.
‘Cause I go high.

High. I’ll go high.
High. I’ll go high. I go high.

Track Name: Organize (Demo)
"ORGANIZE" by David Guilbault

Don’t agonize.
Organize.
Do not accept this fate.
Don’t agonize.
Organize.
Don’t ever think that it’s too late.

When fear and ignorance abide,
And truth is painted as a lie.
It’s time to take
A stand against the hate
That raises fisted hands
And strikes you down.

Don’t agonize.
Organize.
Do not accept this fate.
Don’t agonize.
Organize.
Don’t ever think that it’s too late.

When all you see is dark and dim,
It only takes one candle to begin
It’s time to see
The flames of you and me
To burn the light of justice
O’er this land.

Don’t normalize.
Organize.
Do not accept this fate.
Don’t normalize.
Organize.
Don’t ever think that it’s too late.

When millions of people disagree,
And the county lies fallow at our feet.
Plant the seeds,
Do the honest deeds.
It’s takes toil and sweat and tears
To grow a land.

Don’t demonize.
Organize.
Do not accept this fate.
Don’t demonize.
Organize.
Don’t ever think that it’s too late.

When all feels lost and spirits fade,
And all the high costs have been paid.
Pick your self up.
You haven’t done enough.
It’s time to raise your voice
And join the fray.

Don’t agonize.
Organize.
Do not accept this fate.
Don’t agonize.
Organize.
Don’t ever think that it’s too late.
