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: Primitive Feeling
There's nothing extraordinary about it , it's just a bunch of words in your mouth, the feeling never seem to stick around
when it finds you you can't let it go and you lose your mind when it starts to grow, I use to be interrested but that was a while ago
Falling in love with my friends, that silly thing we do when we're lonely, we fall in love
when we're fallin, we get this rush of adrenaline, oh what a feeling, it's that primitive feeling
Falling in love with my friends, that silly thing we do when we're lonely, we fall in love
Falling in love with my friends, that silly thing we do when we're lonely, we fall in love
Track Name: Goodbye Big City
Well I wonder who I am and nobody know's where I am, cause I'm unseen, untouch and unheard, I just sit and wonder 'bout who I am
and I feel like a rock that's taken too far from the shore and I feel like tree that's too short to see what life has to show,
well now goodbye big city, I am gone.. where my heart can grow,
I'm going to the countryside where the wind of lilly blows!
Track Name: Puppets
Puppets make the world go round living under richer men rules, I said puppets make the world go round, puppets deal with the dirtiest men dressing in their sharpest suit, they make the world go round
But strangely I feel like a puppet everyday, well almost everyday, I said almost everyday yeah yeah and I accept to live the same day over and over and over, but it's all over now, yes it's all over now
Cause your sharp scissors hangin' round the strings over me, your sharp scissors setting all of the puppets free, you're out of your mind if you think i'm not ready, you're out,
Sharp scissors girl cut those strings and let me fall in, oh let me fall in, let me fall in your reality

Sometimes I wish that I could wake up from my reality, then my dream would be, the only thing that I would see, touch and feel
alright
to slip out of my skin, to walk out of my walk, to talk out of my talk to think about the things that I can't find on the back of my mind, about the things tititititititi babababababa on the back of my mind

Cause your sharp scissors hangin' round the strings over me, your sharp scissors setting all of the puppets free, you're out of your mind if you think i'm not ready, you're out,
Sharp scissors girl cut those strings and let me fall in, oh let me fall in, let me fall in your reality
Track Name: Lilly
they call her lilly the anarchist, i believe they're afraid of all the things that she thinks, but i see her as the light over the storm and the rain
she can stop my train and put an end to my ball and chain
Now i'm giving away everything I don't need, i'm giving away everything, oh everything
Lilly your name is on everybody's lips, some say you spread the disease, some say you're the cure, I don't care what they say, just let your fearless lips be mine to kiss
The system fights with rage and guns, Lilly fights back fireing words, she doesn't need an army to rely on, cause her mind's her only weapon
Lilly you're so free, you're rebuilding the bridge between my head and my soul
