about

Welcome to SWEET TIME OF MINE - a couple of old friends making a record.
Dreams are good - big and small. Joël Perreault and I have been making music together for the better half of our lives. When we decided to record these songs in our burgeoning studio, it felt like the dream was playing out just as it should.

Merci Joël pour ta générosité, ton enthousiasme, ta persévérence, ton honnêteté et ta façon de puiser mon meilleur... et aussi de me dire quand c’est le temps de poser la guitare et de venir écouter. Merci Rosanne, Calia et Louis pour votre générosité, amour et compréhension. Merci à la famille et aux amis pour votre appui constant ! Merci à Joel et Ivan pour votre amitié et l’énergie que vous consacrez à cette aventure musicale ! Merci Nathalie! Ça ne fait que commencer, cette histoire et déjà, y’en a pour quelques bouquins ! Tu ne sauras jamais comment ta foi en moi et ton engagement à faire rouler l’affaire aident à alimenter ce feu de camp !

THANK YOU TO YOU! THANKS FOR LISTENING! THANKS FOR LOVING!

Track Name: What's This Beauty (Acoustic)
WHAT’S THIS BEAUTY
 
Where I come from
Ain’t so different than where you come from
Where I’m going to
Is exactly where you’ve come to
The only difference is the story
Of how we’ve come to be
Time for us to tell our story
We are where we are to be

If you told me, you were to be my all
I’d have to let you be
Not mine but yours
For yours is the only one for you to be
If you told me, you had to leave
I’d have to set you free
Who am I to say, who where you are to be?
It’s all a part of your story
Of how you’ve come to be
‘Time for you to tell your story
You are where you are to be

Please forgive me
If this isn’t what you want from me
This is what you get
And right now, it’s exactly what you need
Forgive me, you’re the one you’re setting free
Forgive me, and set yourself free

What’s this beauty
That I behold all around me?
What’s this peace I’m overcome with
When I slow to stay with thee
It’s all part of my story, of how I’ve come to be
‘Time for me to tell my story,
And I am where I am to be
Where I am to be
Track Name: Lovers Weep (Acoustic)
LOVERS WEEP

Chorus:
I would only break your heart
I think it better if we never start
I have fallen to dismay
Oh baby don’t let us do this again
No matter how we part
In the end we’d only hold the stars
I would only break your heart
I would only break your heart

Still you call
With those eyes
And a love
That defies
Draw me back
Into the fold
All ablazed
Despite what is told

(Chorus)

Yet we plunge
Fumbling fools
Intertwine
Hunger rules
Sinking deep
Darkness sweeps
Silence chills
Lovers weep

(Chorus)
Track Name: Out in the Streets (Acoustic)
OUT IN THE STREETS

What did I see?
Will I ever know?
It peered in my eye
Straight into my soul

Out in the streets, out in the streets
My blood runs cold,my blood runs cold
I can’t feel my feet, I can’t feel my feet
Something’s got a hold, something’s got a hold
Vision’s getting weak
I’m losing control

Under the beat, under the beat
I can’t let go, I can’t let go
Slipping through the gears
Caught in that undertow

I can’t take the heat, I can’t take the heat
Something’s gonna blow
Something’s gonna blow

It’s gotten pretty bleak, it’s gotten pretty bleak
Pull over my cloak, pull over my cloak
I fall to my knees, I fall to my knees

Chorus:
Please take me home
I need some ‘rock me in your arms’
I need something sweet and low
‘fore it starts all over…
Track Name: All Good People
ALL GOOD PEOPLE

Sorry if I sometimes get a little out of hand
Sorry if I get a little pushy now and again
But I’m trying to do my best
Yeah, I’m trying to give it my all
I’m trying to do my best, ‘cause mine is all I got
Trying to do my best, not just for me but for us all
Trying to do my best for all you good people

Sorry if I stayed a little too long again last night
Mostly sorry ‘cause it hurts to look up at the light
But I was feelin’ on a roll, maybe a little invincible
I was feelin’ on a roll ‘cause I was feelin’ all the love
Feelin’ on a roll ‘cause the groove was real’ good
Feelin’ in on a roll, feelin‘ all you good people

Sorry if I disappear without leaving a hint
Sometimes I can’t help it
My soul’s got a mind for wandering
But I’m here with you now
Yeah, I’m here to tell you how
Here with you now - here to tell you what
Here with you now - that I aint gon’ give you up
Here with you now
Here with all you good people

Sorry if I sometimes get a little out of hand
Sorry if I get a little pushy now and again
But I’m trying to do my best
Yeah, I’m trying to give it my all
I’m trying to do my best, ‘cause mine is all I got
Trying to do my best, not just for me but for us all
Trying to do my best for all you good people

Trying to do my best for all you good people
Trying to do my best for all you good people
Trying to do my best for all you good people
Track Name: Ticket to Tokyo (Acoustic)
TICKET TO TOKYO

Chorus:
Hawkin’ my stuff, ‘n’ buyin‘ a ticket to Tokyo
Hear the cherry blossoms are about to come out
I need a new dream, I need a new dream
Why not one bathed in pretty pink petals
Hawkin’ my stuff, ‘n’ buying a ticket to Tokyo
I’ll call when I get in

Mama say a prayer for me
Papa try and not worry
Brothers, I’ll be thinking ‘bout you
I’ll be home soon

Baby I’ll try not to cry as I leave
I know it hurts but it’s good to know we still bleed
Now I’ve got to go at this alone
There’s just some things you’ gotta do on your own

(Chorus)

Please don’t ask me what’s waiting for me
‘Don’t know but I need to go and see
Sometimes it’s not about why or where you go
Sometimes you’ just got to follow your soul

Who knows what tomorrow will bring
But I hope you’ll still be here with me
No matter the distance that comes in between
All I have to do is to think of you and it just disappears
Track Name: J'entonne (You Won't Know 'til you Know)(Acoustic)
J’ENTONNE (YOU WON’T KNOW ‘TIL YOU KNOW)
 

À nouveau sur le chemin des quatre fils 
J’aime bien cette rue 
Douce quiétude me berce dans mes pas 
J’me sens plus près de moi
J’me sens plus prêt pour moi 
J’laisse passer les questions qui ne me concernent pas 
J’laisse passer les klaxons qui sonnent bas 
J’avance dans ce beau silence d’une légèreté étonnante 
Et j’entends

You won’t know ’til you know 
You won’t know ’til you know 
Doesn’t matter if you listen
Or dig your head in the snow 

Je n’suis pas le premier à passer par ici 
Ni serai-je le dernier à vouloir en fuir 
Tout c’que j’sais c’est qu’au fond j’ai ce grand désir 
D’être bien avec toi 
D’être bien avec moi 
D’faire face à ces peurs qui, d’en dessous, me déchirent
D’aimer plus fort que je n’puisse en revenir 
J’m’arrête, j’respire 
J’attends... j’attends... j’entends
 
You won’t know ’til you know 
You won’t know ’til you know 
Doesn’t matter if you listen
Or dig your head in the snow 
You won’t know ’til you know 
You won’t know ’til you know 
All you can do is hang on
And find someone to hold

Le vent se lève
Je l’envie
Je veux le suivre
Le vent lève
Et moi aussi
Je m’lui confie

(Chorus)
Track Name: If Only (Acoustic)
IF ONLY

No mind
Reeling away some time
Standing in line
Dude can’t seem to make up his mind

Like Neil, I’m getting old
My coffee’s getting cold
This fly is slowly driving me crazy
I’m still waiting on you to ask me

Chorus:
Can you get me out of here
Can you get me out of here
Put me in your pocket
Let’s kick it
If only you’d ask me
If only…

In the meantime
I’ll keep casting out the line
And singin’ out my heart
For the folks in the shipyard

When you comin’ ‘round ?
Want to hear you shake the ground
Want to feel heavy
Like the whole world inside me

(Chorus)
Track Name: Sweet Time of Mine (Acoustic)
SWEET TIME OF MINE
 
Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed’s the best way to start the day
On a sunny Sunday morning in the heart of May
No worries on my mind
Guitar on my lap and you by my side
Sweet time of mine, sweet time of mine
Like laundry on the line, sweet time of mine

June took the turn to make me learn Yet another little game
Ain’t it funny how seemingly random She’ll throw you for a spin
Just when I’ve thought I might slip right off
Well I’ve hung on and wondered how I’d ever lost
This sweet time of mine, sweet time of mine
Like laundry on the line, sweet time of mine

Back on the porch this morn’
Sippin’ on tea and blowing my horn
Feels like world’s swingin’ along
There’s still so much I don’t yet know
I guess I’ll keep struttin’ ahead Trusting my belly over my head
Wherever I may roam, wherever she may blow
Like laundry on the line, sweet time, like laundry on the line
Like laundry on the line, sweet time of mine
Track Name: Under the Same Moon (Acoustic)
UNDER THE SAME MOON
 
It’s been 77 days
And I can’t wait to see your face light up
When I walk through the door
To hold you tight
To kiss you goodnight
Is all I could ever ask for

Chorus:
I’m coming home to you
As fast as these tired wings will let me
I’m coming home to you
As the crow flies
I forever will be true
No matter how far these wings will take me
I’ll always come home to you
As the crow flies

I know, it was me who ran away
Don’t know how long I expected you to wait
Don’t know why we had to
But here we are still standing under the same moon

Tonight as I sing to you
From two thousand miles away
I’ll sing strong and true
So you might hear me
Suddenly I see you standing right there in front of me
I know, a part of me, you will always be

(Chorus)
