about

Mr. Songbird Sherbrooke, Québec

"Songbird's songs offer an extraordinary combination of folk elements, groovy 70s psychedelic rhythms and unique, fresh sounding melodies with that special human touch to them. Every time I hear his tunes of life, I start a-hummin' and a-buzzin' and I just can't stop. Mr. Songbird is a songwriter in his own right, THIS is independent music in the true sense of the word." words of Simone Bigeard ... more

Track Name: Welcome To Hell
Well they first give you toys so that you learn how to play, but you soon realise that you need wings to fly away, to fly away, yeah yeah yeah
they'll say : get a job you little bum! and then you'll have a lot less time to think and they'll give you money, so your mind will start to shrink
hey little darling, welcome to hell!
you should cry a little louder or you'll burn with the rest

Hey little darling, won't you take my hand, we'll reach the sky
and we'll know why, we'll know why
they're changing our forest into dust for money,
they're polluting the air for the same old story, ain't it a pity!

Well, we're all polluting the air and we sit and wait for more bad news to share, oh it's a shame
now when you you look at the rich and then you look at the poor and you see that the problem is... that they both want more, they both want more, Oh..!
Track Name: New Distraction
i look at lovers from afar
and everyones got a bloody heart
it ain't an easy game this we all know
but why oh why oh why
why is it so easy for me to jump in blindly every single time?

we find new distractions that attract our attention
we find new distractions
we cry emotions, it dries in motion
we find new distraction again and again and again...

love stays, but only for those who's got the faith to wait
for those with endless patience
those who wait for the pearl
i think i've found the right girl
but then again how can i be sure
how can i be sure?

who knows!?
maybe i'll find new distractions that'll attract my attention
and make my tears drop and make them dry again
and then i'll find new distractions again
Track Name: Behind My Fatal Doors
love started at first sight in a dream, a party in my mind, deep in my sleep, we we're shamelessly makin' it on the floor, behind my eyes, behind my fatal doors

I wanna meet you there one last time
I'll free you from my mind and make you mine

imagination know's how to treat me, know's how to treat me better than I can treat myself,
the pain from livin, lovin, lovin in my mind
is what I struggle with all the time

I wanna meet you there one last time
I'll free you from my mind and make you mine

...you're stuck here in my mind...
Track Name: Born Dead
I was born on the passenger seat of a broken down ragged Ford
Daddy was drunk at the wheel, he fell asleep on the road
That was my introduction, my introduction to life
Ever since my birth I only hope to die
Ooooh lucky, I never had the guts to try

Daddy’s drunk again, oh can’t you hear my mama swear
Daddy’s drunk again, hear my mama swear, fuck you.

You gotta live a lonely life alone
You gotta leave your lovely wife alone

You don't know how to treat her
You never knew how to treat her
and me and my sisters and brothers
You never knew how to treat us,
You never knew how to treat nobody but your damn self,
Your god damn self
Track Name: Tied To The Track
Oh Baby, yes I know
that life is a train on a track,
a rolling time machine,
a smoking steam machine,
and it goes way too fast for me,
to jump out of the train
and land unto the true land.

and if someday I'm taking the leap,
they'll throw me back on the train, yeah
I'm tied to the track

Tied to the track
Tied to the track baby,
There's nothing you can do,
cause you're tied to the track, baby
Can't you see those birds flyin' over the train
it shines a light in me, is life a lie in here?

Please stop the train
I'm not feeling right
Please stop the train
I'm not feeling right
and I don't want to die

I don't want to die in your stupid train
Track Name: Relationship Proposal
I can see myself through the mirror of your mind, girl it feel so good, I wish you'd lock me in for a while, it certainly would freeze a smile

and I can feel myself shiverin' from inside, you're dancing in my head and words flies all around and the world never gets me down

But what's in my head I never share it any other way than with a song and I don't know if you'll love or hate it so I'll try not to make it too long

I can hear myself thinking out loud and I can't stop it, I can almost hear myself through your mouth, yeah yeah and I can see myself through the mirror of your eyes, but what I like the best is to see myself behind your loving eyes

But what's in my head I never share it any other way than with a song and I don't know if you'll love or hate it so I'll try not to make it too long
But what's in my head I never share it any other way than with a song and I don't know if you'll love or hate it so I'll try not to make it too long
