written by rob lamothe


a small room above the harbour
i was warned about this place
goodbye victoria
i won’t forget your face

another god forsaken canadian town
it’s just a little acid rain
baby coming down
ain’t nothing for us to stay sober about

i’m sick of this highway
and i am tired of these hotel rooms
i’m just as scared of where this road could take me
as what it leads back to

we are ghosts in all these places
where you came to get away from me
ten seasons come and gone
goodbye calgary

you were the girl on the beach
you were the sun, a wave that came to me
came to me
i’m 46 and i am 14
this peasant shirt these bare feet

yeah I know where hope lies
a hundred frozen miles from kingston...

hello mercury or montreal
you have got be the sweetest audience of all
sky full of restless air
you’re the girl on the beach
with a wave that came to me
you’re the girl on the beach
with a wave that came to me


from long lazy curve, released June 6, 2006

The Toronto Star says I am ‘a mercurial artist who slides effortlessly from rustic roots music to soulful country pop to full-blown rock balladry’. Works for me!
