About Me

I'm french Canadian from Quebec. I've been singing since I'm very young. I've always wanted to write my own songs but being the shy person that I am, I turned to visual arts for most of my life. Over the years, I've written lots of journals with many song ideas but all the pieces are scattered. I'm hoping that collaborating with songwriting will help open new doors and give me the push I need to get into the creative flow and finish writing those songs. And it would be fantastic of course if some of my lines were chosen in a collaboration. Either way, it's a win win situation..! This is me covering Rodney Crowell's song ''Til I gain control again": https://youtu.be/eh5d0MDo9iY

My Lyrics

Written for:

  • The Great Gary Lucas
  • Marti Dodson
  • Beth Nielsen Chapman
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

No comments

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

No comments

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

No comments

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

No comments

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 

No comments

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

No comments

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

No comments

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

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

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

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

The glitter of a star / dancing in the light / echoes 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

No comments

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

No comments

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

No comments

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

No comments

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

No comments

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
