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: CLICKING AND CLACKING MY BONES
i have seen the pretty in you
through and through you are
and no-one could otherwise convince
me of the opposite so far
what i have seen of you
the pretty in you is pure
and no-one could take me away
or lead my eyes astray i'm sure
...
you have gotten me, clicking and clacking my bones
don't think without you babe, i'd make it on my own
i mean technically i could, but what fun would that be
my heart would break in two, figuratively
...
i have seen the good in you
through and through you is
and quite a looker at that
improbable to miss
what i know of you
the good in you is pure
natural and comes easily
no trickery i'm sure
...
Track Name: SOFTLY OUT OF THE MOVING CAR
she stepped softly out of the moving car
and she hit the ground hard
...
but she said she'll survive
Track Name: TO THE MOON
i see her clothes and then see them off
smoke half a pack and then wait for the cough
easy for you is not easy for me
i guess we see things differently
strange worlds apart
...
if i said it once i won't say it twice

can you take off your clothes can you lead me to bed
strange worlds apart
...
i'm alright now, if you are
extending under, the same stars
i'm alright now, you can swoon
now i'm swimming, to the moon
...
brought two bottles of wine thought that we could share
thought right out loud is anyone here
is anyone here in love or alive
i drank too much waiting can anyone drive
strange worlds apart
...
Track Name: WHERE DID YOU COME FROM
i realize i thought i'd try something
something else but as paper met pen
you were all that i could envision
songs without you will come but when
...
have i drawn yet on your thighs
have i doodled on them too
have i been just wanted you wanted
or what you were accustomed to
my furniture is packed to the rafters
and there is more where it came from
garbage some some memories
things i've held onto since i was young
hey, babe
where did you come from
...
now everyone is calling saying i owe them
and i am adding up the bill
so out of hand it is getting
and it is getting worse still
but i've got to pay the guys in frontenac
as the print has arrived today
i sure do appreciate their effort
i know that these are busy days
hey, babe
where did you come from
...
Track Name: YOU YOU YOU
i've been self medicating
drinking eight glasses a day
walking old fashioned isles
figuring out how to say
something that holds your attention
and hopefully gets a response
i've been waiting and waiting
for something i want
i've been drowning in the bottle
dousing myself in cologne
emersing myself in your culture
trying to call it my own
trying to get your attention
trying to get a response
i've been waiting and waiting
for something i want
and it's you you you
...
draw me in cursive inconclusive
or draw me a bath
call me your lover
don't cut me in half
call me for dinner
if you've given it some thought
i've been waiting and waiting
for something i want
and it's you you you
...
i'm all out of breath
and i'm tired as hell
coffee and whispers
and no-one can tell
am i safe in your arms
or will i still bleed
i've been waiting and waiting
for something i need
is it you you you
...
is it you you you
...
