About Me

I'm Canadian, I grew up in the province of Quebec. I've been singing since I'm very young. I turned to visual arts for most of my life. Over the years, I've written lots of journals with many song ideas. I'm hoping that collaborating with songwriting will give me the push I need to get into the creative flow and finish writing those songs. This is me covering Rodney Crowell's song ''Til I gain control again": https://youtu.be/eh5d0MDo9iY

Two arms for you, two hearts so true, Two of us gonna light up the dark
Two laughs to cheer, two drying tears, When the sun shines or when it's pouring rain
Two laughs to cheer, two drying tears
Two caring souls, two hearts of gold
Two woven dreams, two golden rings
Two eyes for you, two lives so new
Two caring souls, two hands to hold
Two hands to touch, two bridges to cross And a world turned upside down can't be the same
Two hearts in flame, Two souls became, Like two of a kind or like One and the same
Two candles burn, Two hearts that yearn, Like an ocean rising up to reach the sky
Two faithful arms, Two good luck charms, You came through the door and love was here to stay
Two flaming hearts, burning the dark Sailing on this journey far beyond the grave
Two dreamy lips, melt in a kiss
Two frozen lips, melt in a kiss
Two hearts in flame, Two souls became, Two state of mind, two of a kind, One and the same
Two yellows, two springs and all the sunshine you bring
Two open arms, safe from all harm / And what matters are these moments spent here with you
Two flaming (or fiery) hearts, burning the dark
Two smiles, two hearts Two loving arms It's like the stars knew my heart belongs here with you
Never thought I'd live this in my lifetime Reaching out for your love was worth the high Climb
Like ocean and tide, we fall and we rise Sailing everyday we greet a brand new sunrise
Counting all my blessings everyday, I hold you in my arms and see your face
Living every moment one by one
We took a chance together and love grew, helping each other through and through
(But) what really matters are these moments spent (or shared) with you
Just like a star, my heart shines brighter next to you
It's like the stars knew my heart belongs here with you
It's like the stars knew my heart was lost without you
Nothing else matters but this moment here with you
Nothing could shine as bright and clear than love so true (or with you)
It was all worth the wait 'cause faith brought me to you
I wouldn't change a thing 'cause love found me and you
What really matters is each moment spent with you
And there's nothing I could do, when your love's out of view
Cuz life was incomplete, 'til you took the front seat
I've been close to defeat, 'til you made my heart beat
My world was tainted blue / And now it's shared with two (or with you)
Spent too many years alone now that you're here
Love and the letter U
A word and a letter too
A bench and a prayer too
The closer our hearts ring true
The closer my heart to you
Always so close to you
We can light up the moon
Bringing our hearts in tune
No one compares to you
Ready to help us through
Bonded like me and you
Like the ocean and tides, we fall and we rise
Like buttercups in the spring and all the sunshine you bring
Like the ocean and wind, gently soothing our skin
Like the birds and bees, loving you is a breeze
We could be Fred and Ginger, making romance together
Listening to the sounds of snowflakes falling down
Like making a list of all the things to fix
Summer pic nics and road trips and late night dips
Every part we discover is showing a new color
Like holding each other, reading under the covers
Like a song and a dance, on a late night romance
Listening to the sounds of the waves slowing down
But that's unthinkable without you and I
Can't feel butterflies without you and I
No one's given me so much butterflies
No love evenly compares to you and I
Like a dance and song across a blue sky
Can't make wonderful without you and I
Can't spell memories without you and I
There's no summertime without you and I
Gotta have two wings to make a bird fly
I wanna dance together in the moonlight
The twinkle in your eyes that made my heart smile
I'll hang on to this love, won't let it slip by
You're the meaning to the endless blue sky
I wanna hold you close through the dark night
I held on to my dream though I had no clue, We'd brave this kind of weather making stars smile, All we've been together was made for two
You got that kind of love that makes it worthwhile, A twinkle in your eyes that makes my heart smile, All we found together was made for two
Don't really weigh that much at all/ don't weigh that much at all
And when you feel all tangled in dark memories, I won't be far around the corner, my father
I used to be so strong, then I got lost in the pain, You saved me from my cold December, I remember
I used to think I was strong, then I got lost in the pain, You saved me from my cold December, I remember
Just like the yesterdays I spent out in the rain, you took me in from the cold december, I remember
And if you're feeling stranded out there in the cold, I'll guide your ship into my harbor, and give you shelter
I'll be strong and hold you tight, we're together in this fight, I will carry you
I'll be strong and hold you tight, you won't be alone in this fight, I will carry you
Now my heart's willing to pour, all the love you gave before, now I will carry you, yes I will carry you
All the mem'ries that I saved, of the strength of love you gave, now I will carry you
There's a voice reaching your shore, showing up at your front door, you know that I will carry you
Like a heart ready to pour, all the love you gave before, I will carry you
Reaching out to your front door, patiently I will be yours, and I will carry you
I'll be standing in the fire, holding you through every hour
I'll be standing in the rain, next to you through all the pain
There's a thunder in my heart, that won't let you fall apart, And I will carry you
There's a thunder in my heart, that can mend the broken parts, And I will carry you
Now lay down the cross you bear, we were meant to love and share
Let me show how much I care, we were meant to grow and share, and I will carry you
Time and distance didn't care, life was all about repair, and I will carry you
Time and distance made us strong, life could never break this bond, And I will carry you
By my side, like a tree stands in the rain, filled with pride, I'll stay by you even through the pain
Like a tree stands in the rain, I'll stay by you even through the pain
I'll shine a light / like stars at night to guide you through / when you lose sight / that dreams come true / I will carry you
Like a kite, I'll lift you high up in the sky
Time won't make it less, easier to confess
And in those yonder years, you'll always find me near
Even when I'm far, you're my guiding star
Even when I'm far, you'll always be my star
My eyes couldn't see all the cost that comes with freedom, now the years have made you weary but I'll carry you along
My eyes couldn't see that there's a price to own our freedom now the years have made you weary but I'll carry you along
It wasn't enough, you'd been through this madness It was always tough and once you've shown the sadness You were never enough
Entranced and bewitched, sharing one orbit, we spiral through a funnel of.... ?!
Entranced and bewitched, sharing one orbit, our planets keep the darkness at bay
Entranced and bewitched, sharing one orbit, our satellites will keep the dark at bay
Entranced and bewitched, in the same orbit, our satellites will keep the dark at bay
Entranced and bewitched, we're floating adrift as the rain washed our stains away
Like stars, we collide / arousing the twilight / sending sparkles lasting onto the grave
Like stars, we collide / we excite the twilight / sending sparkles lasting onto our grave
Like stars we collide / igniting the twilight / crashing sounds to the ground in waves
Like stars, we collide / igniting the twilight / our bonding will last in the grave
Sunrise slowly glides / reflects in your eyes / igniting and inviting to stay
Sunrise slowly glides / reflects in your eyes/ inviting and igniting the way
We reached down the line, for love through the vines, as the rain washed our pain away
So much to feel blessed, we braved every step, we bonded and blended in grey
The sweet morning dew, and warm I love you's that bind us, won't lead us astray
The white snowy pines, whisper through the vines, as they glisten, we listen and sway
Will each step in the night, lead to minefields in our minds, will it bind us or lead us astray
No trace of misery / nothing held bitterly / when we're naked and sacred to the light
When our wings feel the drench / of love's hope fully quenched / down the river, where blue drifters meet again
When our fears take a bench / and words hold no pretense / cares will whisper down the river of delight
When our wings feel the drench / of love's hope fully quenched / and blue drifters join the river of delight
Etchings of the heart / our bond is stitched and engraved /broken pieces to remind / these moments we learn (or yearn) to save
Bonded heart to heart / our love is deep and engraved / broken pieces to remind / these moments we yearn to save
River running deep / the love seeps into our hearts / wakes the bottom from its sleep / reveals the gleam from the stars
Sunrise in your eyes / the rays unfold to golden / wakes the magic from its sleep / reveals our hearts unfrozen
Sunrise in your eyes / the rays unfold to golden / wakes the splendour from its sleep / reveal our hearts unfrozen
River running deep / the magic seeps through our hearts / Wakes the splendour from its sleep / weaving dreamers into stars
River running deep / the magic seeps through our hearts / wakes the madness from its sleep / weaving dreamers into stars
Stillness holds the space / the truth walks out from the shade / turns the madness into stars / unites us on love's crusade
Sun rays light up the way / dancing with our shadows / Stolen moments everyday / As we walk the path of heroes
Sun rays light up the way / dancing with our shadows / stealing moments everyday / fighting (or battling) the dark like heroes
Moon beams glow in the night / Ripples on the water / Stolen moments you and I / Reclaiming our soul's altar
Full moon glows in the night / ripples on the water / Stolen moments' sea of light / reclaiming our soul's altar
Making heroes of us / We climb rugged mountains / Our craters turn to cold and ash / But deep down we're still golden
Pink moon shining above / Ripples on the water / Peaceful glow ignites our soul / And melting us together (or merging us together)
We reach the crescent moon / Love clouds burst wide open / Passion carved a sea of dunes / A beauty left unspoken
Beneath the crescent moon / Love clouds burst wide open / Passions form a sea of dunes / A beauty left unspoken
Love ripples to shore / After a long night shift / Heads safely in the harbour / Leaving worries adrift
Love ripples to shore / Circles around our nest / We stole moments at the core / Wrapped in pur wilderness
Waves come crashing in / Wash our stains forever / Stolen moments on your skin / Safe within your shelter
Pink moon rising high / dancing with the shadows / Stolen moments you and I / To last 'till tomorrow
Wakened from / long cold years / in old rags / damp with tears / We're led / yet again / back to sleep
And as the time gets near / And our fate is unclear / We glance at the sky to repent
As the lines get blurred / While our fate is unsure / We wait for a sign to march on
As the lines' getting blurred / While our fate is unsure / We wait for a sign to march on
From the arrows of blame / To the hunger and shame / We cross rugged shores of despair
From the arrows of blame / To the hunger and shame / We rise through the heat of Love's flame
From the arrows of blame / To the hunger and shame / We rise through the heat of the flame
On the cusp of change / Through the land of derange / We curl up to the rush of the flame
On the cusp of change / Through the land of derange / We bend to the rush of the flame
A new dawn will begin / when we shed our old skin / And we walk to the sun open wings
When the gulls cry for help / As eagles raid their nest / And our senses are dulled by pretense
When each step in the night / leads astray from the light / And we're driven by derision in a bind (resubmitting from the 2e round)
(As) Proud as we may be strong / And things never go wrong / 'Til one foot is misplaced in quick sand
And as the clouds fade away / turn the night into day / Still we carry our dead bones and scars
As we sail, drift away / Heard a voice, heard it say / Don't dive in where the water's too quick
Stolen moments floating by, like silver ribbons in the sky They bring a sparkle through the day And make the dark clouds fade away
Stolen moments floating by, like silver ribbons in the sky They bring a sparkle through the day And make the dark clouds dissipate
Stolen moments, like bright diamonds in the sand They bring a sparkle through the day Lift our worries on command And make the dark clouds dissipate (or clear away)
Stolen moments, like ribbons in the sky Stolen moments, wispy clouds passing by Stolen moments, maybe there's a better way Stolen moments, fly and take me away
Poisoned by jealous hearts / heard chewing in the night / they’re feasting on the keeper of light 
Poisoned by jealous minds / heard chewing through the night / they're binge-eating the keeper of light
The daily grind and clutching hands / are left behind like grains of sand / when you walk out of the jungle toward the sun
The daily grind and clutching hands / are left behind down the stairs / when you walk out the jungle in the sun
When each step in the night / leads astray from the light / And you're driven by derision in a bind
When each step in the night / leads to faint stream of light / And you're driven to derision / Throw a line
Torn like hell, it's bittersweet / When the circle ends and it's time to leave /Say your goodbyes, hope we meet / I'll be seeing you in my dreams
Serpents lead the circus now / Say one word, a ton falls down / We can't pretend there's nothing wrong / A child lays dead playing with a gun
Serpents lead together now / It's not too hard to slip and fall / But I always try to look beyond / Won't let them block the Sun
There's a hunger in my chest / deep and hollow burning red / There's a feeling that just won't let / Go tonight lost in my bed
Can this heart stay open if there's words unspoken
So let's take the next step / We still have some time left
So I'll take the next step Let my heart choose what's best
It took patience (or courage) and grit but I still got through it
So I'll keep believing in what lies (or in the light) beyond spring
So I'll keep believing in what fate is shaping
So I'll keep believing in every choice I'm making
I will be forever / Grateful and remember
So I'll give willingly (or sincerely) Without shame to carry
When we're done with travelling /There's no one left to love then
Memories will live on and my heart will grow strong
Memories will live on Lift the truth from the ground
So I'll stand here prouder / Give my voice the power
Memories will live on Leave a chance (or a choice) to be strong
So I'll climb a tower, speak my truth out louder
So I'll keep believing that this life has meaning
That my fate keeps unrolling (or keeps on calling)
Precious time keeps on slipping
Time is passing so quickly
Of the dreams I've been chasing
Of the meaning (or the reason) unfolding
That my fate just keeps calling
Destiny is unfolding
Won't escape from this moment
The time wheel keeps on spining
So much sand in our hands...(meaning "so much time or minutes..")
If time could only last
If only time lasted
The stars (or the Sun) keep on shining
The wind keeps on blowing
The world (or the wheel) keeps on spinning
Wish I could make it last
And give a hug to Gary
And Be still in this moment
And Be still here forever
Turn the sand clock around
Turn this cycle (or circle) around
Spin the wheel one more time
We could be in heaven
The world will last forever
Stars will shine forever
'Til the sun stops to shine
'Til the end of time...
Spend each day together
I won't wait anymore
I'd always give you more
Find me a true lover who won't let me slip
I'll see through the darkness, no I'll never quit
I'll buy me a nice gown and dance for a prince
I'll lay down my cover, no I won't resist
I'll stand with devotion and follow my bliss
Drive through the night just thinking of this
I'll quit all this yearning and follow my bliss
With a smile on my face, I'll follow my bliss
I'll fly 20 miles just to dance on your lips
I'll dance through the night with thunder and bliss
I'll stare at the moon, count stars, make a wish
I'll pack my tomorrows with wonder and bliss
I'll smile and give thanks all the beauty that exists
I'll smile and give thanks (to) every small part of this
I'll greet rainy mornings (or cloudy mornings) with a smile on my lips
I'll walk through wild roses a smile on my lips
I'll fight off the demons with more tenderness
I'll laugh like a child, dance in the morning mist
I'll light up the night, swim an ocean of bliss
I'll keep a flame burning like two lovers kiss
I'll run with the wind (or I'll run in the rain) and forget time exists
I'll keep a fire burning, flame like a kiss
I'll keep a fire burning I won't let it sit
I'll cross a deep ocean of fire and bliss
I'll cross a deep ocean of magical bliss
It took a while to listen / Understand the reason / Mama said don't be sad, don't let it bring you down / But I always let it somehow
A heart can get bitter / Or grow much bigger / Wish I knew in my youth all that I learned by now / But I survived it somehow
Hearts can get weary / Afraid and lonely / It can be hard to see the sunlight shining through / the trunk and leaves of the tree
It took a while to listen / Understand the reasons / I just let the weight keep pushing me under / Lost control somehow
Steady rain / Moved into town / After the pain / Hit the ground (or hit me to the ground)
There's a strange moon tonight / Something's tugging at my heart / Stirring things up inside / Can't let myself fall apart
I See green / You keep saying yellow / I flap my wings /And you touch the ground / I can take it slow / And promise I won't be far behind / 'Cause I'll never gonna to change your mind
It could take years / Better not depend on / The words I hear / Spin round and round / But I'll hold on / And see you under clearer skies / 'Cause I'm never gonna change your mind
It might take long / Better not expect it (or better not depend on) /I must be strong / Keep hope (love, faith) alive / Walk that bridge / Underneath a starry sky (or night) / 'Cause I'm never gonna change your mind
I'll be strong / You can be the winner / (It) Can't be wrong /When it feels right / I'll steer my wheels / And keep on shining through the night / 'Cause I'm never gonna change your mind
(First twk lines) I'll be strong / You can be the winner
So let's recap / Blow away confusion / Good or bad / No reason to fight /We're on our path / to bring about the best in life / And I'm never gonna change your mind / Still I try, try, try...
(First two lines) So I show my cards / Lay 'em on the table (Happy Mother's Day!) :)
So I give and take / Meet you in the middle / Bend or break / Turn a blind eye (or "brush it aside") / Lie awake / Underneath a moonlit sky / But I'm never gonna change your mind
So I unpack my fears / Lay it on the table / Cut the frills / Let it all slide / Beat my drum / Somewhere under clear blue skies / 'Cause I'm never gonna change your mind
So I lay it out clear / Elucidate this matter / Cut the frills / Let it hang down / Blow the fear / And reach out for the highest climb / 'Cause I'm never gonna change your mind
So I raise my veil / show you all the angles / lift my sails / throw you a line / meet you where / no one else could ever find / But I'm never gonna change your mind
A tiny little star / singing in the night / whispers in the dark
A tiny little lark /singing in the night / whispers through the dark
A tiny little spark*/dancing in the light / shining through the dark* (*Not sure who owns credit)
A little bitty lark / singing in the night / echoes through the dark / the notion that I might...
The glitter of a star / dancing in the light / echoes through the dark
A glimmering star / shining in the light / echo through the dark
Echo or shatter through the dark (last line edit)
A glimmering spark / dancing in the night / bursting through the dark
A glimmering spark / rises like a kite / bursting through the dark
There's got to be change / Just around the corner / It might feel strange / Sometimes it takes a while / Love goes both ways /It's a healing circle we can't deny / But I'm never gonna change your mind
Last two lines: I can't pretend / that it's right when it's not in the end / And I'm never gonna...
When I lose myself / through the stormy weather / we're passersby / like two ships in the night / I can't pretend / that I'm happy when it's raining inside / And I'm never gonna change your mind
When I lose myself / through the stormy weather / we're passersby / like two ships in the night / but what never ends / is all the love that I have inside / And I'm never gonna change your mind
So I packed my case / headed for the Suncoast / I need a break / See the clear blue sky / There's no use stayin' / But I'll never be too far behind / And I'm never gonna change your mind
I dream of a place / we could work it over / inside the gates / of our aching hearts / a warm embrace / feeling like we're on cloud nine / But I'll never gonna change your mind...
(Verse 4 - 3rd line edit) Sometimes when the grey skies clear / or when the storm clouds clear
Suggestions for 3rd line (4th verse): But when I see the truth shine clear (or truth so clear)/ OR sometimes when the sky is clear (since the word truth was already used in previous verse)
But when I'm feeling sure and clear
Well, I could fall down on my knees / Waiting we come closer day by day / our love is such a mystery / every burn reminds me to be brave
Line 1 & 3 ideas: I'll be serious, you be the clown / It's a game we play, a merry-go-round
Ideas for line 1 & 3: Well, I could go down on my knees / ta da ta da..... / our circle maze of mystery / ta da ta da....
Well, I'm never gonna let you down / I'll keep searching ways to reach your heart / And when a boulder hits the ground / We'll work it through and never be apart
I see the maze we're circling through / I show you things that you don't want to see / But your love, I don't want to lose / It's hard to live without your family
I could rant and rave / Try to win you over / I could live in a cave / Mountains apart / I could wait for change / It would only be a waste of time / 'Cause I'm never gonna change your mind
Standing mountains apart (4th line)
Well, I could rant and rave / Try to win you over / Dig a cave / Mountains apart / I could wait for change / But it would only be a waste of time / 'Cause I'm never gonna change your mind!
Well, I could rant and rave / Try to win you over / da da da? /da da da da? / If I wait for a change / It would only be a waste of time / 'Cause I'm never gonna change your mind
