about

...with references to the Bay of Fundy and artist Alex Colville, this
art song & tale is of love, natural beauty, portent, tide and destiny...
rolled into the axiom, "Life is what you make it."

lyrics

We run out along the Bay of Fundy
Rolling in the hay under a laden sky
Our hearts were racing -- our minds eager
Hoping there would never be lies...

The horses are tethered and neighing at dawn
The church bells are ringing
There's a new bride in love
You've got to follow your dreams into the mist
If you don't you can't say you've ever really lived

Like an Alex Colville, come to life!
The portent, the sky, check the time, then the tide,
Questions you're left wondering why?

In these... Lazy Days of May

What is it with these pin dots of meeting spots
On maps that remind me of your face?
I'm connected to this watery place with grace
Every year I return like a migrating bird...
Time and again

What Choice do we have in love?
What chance can we take at all?
When we fight like cats with claws
Make up like Saints and lovers

In these Lazy Days of May

It might be the rage of the Atlantic
Knocking down your door
Or the last song you'll hear from a gull on a cliff
Down here surf is up
You're the ultimate ...serve my cup

Let me hold your hands
Until they turn to dust
That’s what it means to be

In these Lazy Days of Love

Write your name in the sand
Unlearn what you have discovered
When the clouds open, I'll be waiting...

Like an Alex Colville, come to life
the questions , the portent, the sky.
