about

the Lambta Da's regina, Saskatchewan

The music's expression is paradoxically less solar and extraverted than the character of the seasons would lead us to believe. More than strength or richness there is an intensity, a sensation replete with freshness and firmness, which is remarkable. This deep and confident presence that persists over time becomes the memory of the music, possibly for always. ... more

Track Name: CHALK
now do you recall bostons pool hall
dollar draft at the state
every night we stay up till the night turned into day
remember the gaslight and punk shows weeknights
and this one shows my age but do you still
remember ohans without a stage
...
cities change people age how could it stay the same
call a babysitter see if they're free
then get dressed up tonight its just gonna be you and me
but the bar we're at is making us feel so old
everybody looks so young there's nobody that we know
so lets just go home
...
the sunrise used to see and we'd still be drinking
and stumble through the door
but we just cant drink like we used to anymore
...
you can tell our age by what we got
and also by what we lost
call a babysitter see if they're free
then get dressed up tonight its just gonna be you and me
but the bar we're at is making us feel so old
everybody looks so young there's nobody that we know
so lets just go home
...
chalk it up chalk it up as a loss
we're gonna chalk chalk it up chalk it up as a loss
sometimes you win often times
you deal with what you have lost
...
Track Name: FALLING PIANOS
i am ashamed that i've broken your heart
but i cant explain i dont know where to start or why
it had to end as bad as it did
running out on you alone with the kids in the night
...
falling pianos from skyscraper heights
knocked me senseless like burnt out lights
now my nerves are are shot
...
weeks have gone months have passed
somedays i wonder if the kids have asked where i've been
would you even take me back if i tried
if i bought flowers and apologized
again and over again and over again
...
Track Name: I SWUNG FROM YOUR NECKLACE
i swung from your necklace hung onto for dear life
thought you were my mistress turned out to be my wife
yes you did, yes you did, yes you did, yes you did
tasted blood in my mouth honey sweet as my toungue
ran over the stiches and the bath had begun
yes i had, yes it had, yes it had, yes it had
...
eyes half closed with pills close to chest
you dont deserve this now i've become such a mess
...
its getting closer to noon i rolled myself out of bed
fell into the bath i've a mess in my head
what clever words you have strung like pearls around your neck
i think i will pass out i think i have been wrecked
yesi have, yes i have, yes i have, yes i have
...
eyes half closed with pills close to chest
you dont deserve this now i've become such a mess
...
gonna try and better myself
gonna try and compose my health
take stock in the things i have
she would love me if i let her
toss all the bottles through the window screen
eating healthy gonna get real lean
i can feel it in my bones this time
she would love me if i let her
no cigarettes i 'm gonna clean my lungs
taking time for the things i've done
writing stories like i used to do
she would love me if i let her
cleaning up if i make a mess
make an effort to be cleanly dressed
when i am tired i wont take a rest
she would love me if i let her
...
Track Name: MY MIND WOULD DRIFT, I WAS ALMOST NOT THERE AT ALL
the tree i imagined in the song
the girl i loved in the verse
the love i lost and i imagined
how it felt and how i hurt and now it hurts
but this was when, my mind would drift
...
barely eight lines and a chorus
now i takes alot more for me to take notice
but this was when, my mind would drift
...
i was almost not there at all
Track Name: OLD WHISKEY SIX
old whiskey six i'm smoking dynamo
old whiskey six i'm smoking dynamo
trying to die quick instead of dying old
trying to die quick instead of dying old
...
someone save me cause i'm still waiting for the good times
you smoke and i drink you could take me home
if you give me a wink and a good line
this is so bizarre, i question who you are
i question who you are in the morning
this is so bizarre, i wonder who you are
i wonder who you are in the morning
...
i'm loving the fact that your dressed suitable
i'm loving the fact that your dressed suitable
so take me out back and kill me beautiful
so take me out back and kill me beautiful
Track Name: PENCIL MARKS
my wife says please dont write depressing songs tonight
write about how i am beautiful and how you are mine
but there's not much time before she says that mom and me
dont need to carry her up the stairs
or tuck her in because she's old enough
you are my sunshine is little kids stuff
...
babe when both of the kids
leave the home and then its just me and you
what are we gonna do
...
my wife says please dont write depressing songs tonight
write about how i am beautiful and how you are mine
but there's not much time before he doesnt fit in the seat
thats behind my bicycle and we wont be able to go
on rides around the crescents and the creek anymore
...
these days they're growing so tall
i have to look at the pencil marks on the wall
to remind me how much smaller they were
dont know where all the time went
it scares me to think someday they wont be kids
though to me always my boy and my girl
...
Track Name: PROMISES YOU COULD NEVER KEEP
now all i'm trying to do is stop the bleed
but everything is dying around me
and always i'm not doing what i need to do
at least you say
now would you trade a son for days off
or would you trade a daughter for a cough
because you cant smoke or drink or stay out late
while you behave
...
the times that i had with you
that i'll never had again
when we go old you lost me
and you lost all of your friends
...
before you find out that the rumors they are true
before you find that they are about me and you
i'll tell you what i did but more importantly
i will tell you what i did not do
...
the times that i had with you
that i'll never had again
when we go old you lost me
and you lost all of your friends
as you lay down and close your eyes girl
tuck in and go to sleep
and dream about all the promises
that you could never keep, never keep
...
Track Name: SIDELINES
am i just grasping at straws
when i say you all are wrong
i'm sitting on the sidelines waiting
for someone to join along
...
prefer instead of constant to be a bore
i am indentifying with the crazies more and more
i'm asking if you've got a passion
thats damaging your health
...
is there anything that i can do
that'll break you from you gaze
our days are numbered still
no matter our age
...
Track Name: THE MOMENT
you could not look in my eyes
waiting like you did
as hours they passed by
at home with the kids
...
now here's the moment when
i weigh the trouble i'm in
and decide whether to fight the fire i lit
or let it burn out slow
or tell you that i'm so
sorry that i did the things i did
...
out of our home
and onto the street
in the middle of the night
is where you sent me
...
the stars came out, the moon it was bright
the noise of the street, broke the silence of our night
...
Track Name: UNTIL YOUR GOOD
like an unwanted child your parents left you wild
they said it isnt their fault thats bullshit
you have a constant urge to relapse and return
to carnal instincts you often fall back to
...
but i will wait
like i should
for you babe
until your good
i will wait, for you
...
with heavy curtains drawn you sleep through every dawn
and wake up out of sorts for an hour or more
i remind myself how quickly things turn around
its a waiting game that our love plays
...
i'm getting used to what this love is but
every now and then hell breaks loose again
...
Track Name: YOUR LOVLEY & YOU LOVE ME
i cook for you cause baby i think that your lovely
i'd read a book beside you in bed cause you love me
your like the song that i could play on repeat
with an unforgetable memory lord knows how i need you
without you there is no harmony
...
i try and clean cause baby i know that your busy
so after work you can spend all of your free time with me
i know that we both got busy days
when we were younger we would waste them away
but now our time is precious
there's no rest for the wicked you'd say
...
i'll court you still just as i did when i met you
dancing at the local bar that we went to
back when you were just twenty one
we would cut a rug just having some fun
looking back now i can remember knowing you were the one
...
