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: BEDS, SMOKES, CLOTHES
your looking like a romantic
staring still at the stars
you have got a drunken slouch
hanging off the boulevard
half drunk, half stoned
always fucking on beyond belief
while she is at home lying right next to me
...
we're sharing beds at night
we're sharing packs of smokes
we're sharing beds at night
sharing eachothers clothes
...
how sad for you little boy
if you knew what goes behind your back
but keep your temper dont get mad
good things never seem to last
cant you see that she's in love with me
and i am fond of her
you looking like a romantic
too fucked up for sure
...
you fell into the ocean kid
you fell into now who you love
but she has got no mercy for you
she is telling you nothing of
who she's being seeing
latley who see has been messing with
and i have fallen in love with her
she's got no love for you kid
...
now that she has left me as well
i've got my own cigarette lit
i've got my bottle of spirits
and i dont care who i go home with
but i cant stop worrying
i am unable to
stop thinking of a prettier boy
with his arms around you, i mean her
...
Track Name: BROKE, TRAVELLING, HUNGRY, LOVE
i've been broke for so long now it seems
i've been broke for so long now it seems
i've spent all my cash on broken guitars
but i cant play a lick i cant afford any strings
...
i've been travelling since the first time we kissed
i've been travelling since the first time we kissed
and often times on the highway i
think about all the things back home that i've missed
...
i've been hungry lord knows that i should
i've been hungry lord knows that i should
buy a meal now and then instead of booze and cigarettes
the fact that i can see my ribs just cant be too good
...
i am in love with you darling thats true
when i am away all i think of is you
i should pawn all my gear
settle down get a job
and cook for you babe, aint that what i should do
...
Track Name: CHORDETTE, WHY DID YOU RUN AWAY
i have changed darling i am not the same
broken and lonley when ihear your name
since last time i kissed you and tugged at your skirt
commented on the pattern of your shirt
told you i loved you so much that it hurt
whispered sweet nothings to my beautiful girl
it has been a long time now, now
..
chordette i need and love you
i'm always thinking of you
chordette why did you run away
...
darling where have you gone wont you come back
what did i do wrong when i saw you last
was it something i did or did not say
do not know the reason you went away
it has been a long time now, now
...
i have changed darling i am not the same
broken and lonley when i hear your name
...
Track Name: DISASTER
why did it matter glass was shattered
and i flew out of the windshield
like pancake batter i was hammered
guess i deserved to but no-one got killed
...
a mid life crisis my ex wife said
you are going through an awful one
i barely recognize the colour of my eyes
or if i'm having any fun
but little chordette yes she knows it
she could be my only saving grace
its hard to think we always drink
she makes me forget my kids birthdays
...
all i want to do
is go back to being with you
is go back to how we were
i'm a disaster now with her
...
i'm taking drugs i never took before
and now i think i'm freaking out
maybe my ex-wife she was right
i thought i was but now i have my doubts
yes she knows it little chordette
she could get away with anything
i try and talk about a future
but she says she needs another drink
...
i never knew how she could move
i never knew how she could hurt someone
before i knew it she had moved
across the country to another one
...
i was married
i was clean
i had a mistress
now i'm obscene
i was given ample opportunities
do you wanna misbehave she said to me
...
and now i want you now i want you
now i want you back i want you so bad bad bad
and now i want you now i want you
now i want you back i want you so bad
Track Name: EVERLY C, I'M OBSESSED WITH YOU
do you remember your dress
spaghetti straps or strapless
kleenex carnations you made
spike heels, corsage and glittered hair down your chest
with lights off you can dance close
till the chaperone tells you no
pink crepe paper in the shape of a heart
with your date a picture now of you both
i'm obsessed with you
and all the things you do
i will too
...
everly, everly, i wanna be so close to you
...
now did you ever cheat
play with a heart or mistreat
sit at home all alone and cry
shot down, who's gonna shoe your pretty little feet
now did you wait by the phone
so many years now ago
oh what a feeling when will i be loved
or will i have to stroll on my own
i'm obsessed with you
and all the things you do
i will too
...
everly, everly, i wanna be so close to you
...
Track Name: LITTLE DRUNK BOY
i hope its gonna be, a good night for you and me
i hope its gonna be, a good night for you and me
hopefully, hopefully, hopefully, hopefully, hopefully
...
i want to tell you
before i formally had met you
i had seen your face before
at a bar where i would often go
i asked a friend if she knew you
she said she once had partied with you
i asked her please, to introduce me
...
i said how are you, are you dancing
you said dont even bother asking
i have seen your face before
your just a little drunk boy
i said oh baby give me one chance
your gonna love me after we shake and dance
you said oh please, you cant be seriously
so vain, so vain, so vain
...
i hope its gonna be, a good night for you and me
...
Track Name: LOVE RANG MERCY
a little story bout chordette and how
she tried to settle down
married a man who went by herbie e.
then put him in the ground
met at a bar where they would often go
he asked her if she could dance
she brushed him off and then she changed her mind
figured she'd give him a chance
figured she'd give him a chance
...
their love rang mercy, moon white naked
their love rang mercy, loved and hated
their love rang mercy, from start to demise
their love rang mercy
when he looked in her eyes
and she looked in his eyes
...
there had been no degrees of separation from whom
they both had been sleeping with
experimental years now they both had
and also had the same friends
things got messy at the reception
right after their first dance
the liquor flowed and they all had too much
he left the hall with an old romance
he left the hall with an old romance
...
the limo driver drove around like herbie asked
but he'd been hitting the sauce
had not expected to be driving around
till two or three o'clock
and as he noticed that the girl was not the bride
his reaction was too slow
they found them crumpled up in a ditch
chordette became a young widow
chordette became a young widow, their love rang mercy
...
Track Name: MY DARLING, LADY, SWEETHEART, BABY
girl just stop talking shit
you wanna act real smart your just an idiot kid
a dumb little fuck and thats it
stop crying about the city your in
...
i'm gonna quit calling you my darling
i'm gonna quit calling you my lady
i'm gonna quit calling you my sweetheart
i'm gonna quit calling you my baby, baby
...
please tell me which fad your next jumping on
please tell me about your cool neon
please tell me about what i do is so wrong
please ask me how good i'll feel when your gone
...
you dumb fuck wanna smoke and fill your head
with things that make you feel smart that other people said
you dont think for yourself i doubt you ever did
i dont care about your folks or why they split
...
Track Name: NINE TO FIVE
asleep in the darkness
on my way to and from
it seems days are shortening
and a little less fun
...
i've been working on my nine to five
so i can get out of this job alive
...
weeks have blurred into months
i'm scared to think about years
i'm scared one day i'll say i cannot come home
and you will break down in tears
...
i've got piles of papers
but it aint cash its receipts
stacks of work i'll never look at
i need a slap on my cheek
to get this all back in order
to get this all back on track
cause if i cant get my shit back together
then i might not be comin back
...
Track Name: PAINTING BLINDFOLDS AND MOUNTAINS
i really do care alot about that girl
if you knew she is rare like an ocean pearl
...
i've been painting on a blindfold
telling myself that i'll win her love
i've been re-arranging mountains
she is the only one i'm thinking of
...
whittle down to its essence till i understand
why she wont settle down and find a man
provocative and undaunting when it comes to men
and she is a minimalist when it comes to loving them
...
i really do care alot about that girl
Track Name: THUNDERCLAPPING EYES
some cried out, some knelt down
as the heavens opened and did the ground
you did your thing and i did mine
there were no lovers that were left behind
every cry, since light
flashed across your thunderclapping eyes
i looked above, saw his hands
he preached forgiveness for woman and man
except for me and you
except for me and you
...
we refuse to mourn the dead
should we pray or drink instead
there's no-one left except for me and you
...
prophets loud, on burning sands
preaching forgiveness while i take your hand
we go off into the night
no-ones left everyone has taken flight
except for me and you
except for me and you
...
every cry, since light
flashed across your eyes
...
Track Name: TIGHT JEANS
her eyes were dry no there was not a tear
i told her coldly i did not want her near
she gave a look like she said something to say
but then she turned around and walked away
...
no letters or phone calls, she wouldnt see me at all
after i broke it off, and now i just wanna talk
but she is hitting the town, looks like she's getting around
she's got no time now for me, i want her desperately
...
her eyes were dry no there was not a tear
i told her coldly i did not want her near
she gave a look like she said something to say
but then she turned around and walked away
...
in the middle of a, one sided discussion
she's flipping back her hair, looks like she dont care
i say it was a mistake, i wish that i could erase
letting her go, i want her back like before
...
i'd love you all of the time, darling now if you were mine
just give me another chance
i'd love you all of the time, darling now if you were mine
i'm needing your sweet romance
...
her eyes were dry on a cold lonely night
she looked so good oh man she looked out of sight
she gave a look like she said something to say
but then she turned around and walked away
...
Track Name: WINE
doesnt anybody wanna be my girl, doesnt anybody wanna be my girl
i'm asking you, i'm begging please, i'll love you, if you love me
doesnt anybody wanna be my love, doesnt anybody wanna be my love
i'll be sweet, extra kind, something else, if you'll be mine all mine
...
i've been drinking, i've been drinking wine
...
would'nt somebody wanna be my date, pick'em up early and stay out late
take them spots they've never been, take them dancing, romancing
doesnt anybody want close to me, isnt everybody romantically
wishing somebody was tenderly, hugging and kissing them endlessly
...
i've been drinking, i've been drinking wine
for so long now i cant stop, there's no tomorrow if the bottle drops
for so long now i cant stop, there's no tomorrow if the bottle drops
...
i've been drinking, i've been drinking wine
...
