THE TIME IS NOW     @ Connie Kaldor  SOCAN

You’ve got some love
You’ve got some hope
You’ve got a hundred different ways
In your life in which you cope

You’ve got some love
You’ve got a heart
And a bunch of tears on standby
In case things fall apart

Chorus
But there comes a time with every thing
When you can open up your heart and let it sing
And that time is now, that time is now
That time is now

You’ve got your life
It moves so fast
But you finally got ahead
Of all that trouble in the past

You’ve got your life
You’ve got your place
Till you looked inside your heart
And found that little empty space

Chorus

Cause you’ve worked so hard
You’ve been so strong
Didn’t you pick up all the pieces
That time when love went wrong?

Chorus

Pieces of your heart    @ Connie Kaldor SOCAN

You watched things stumble and then you watched them fall
Now you’re picking up the pieces of your heart
All you have left is packed in boxes in the hall
And you’re picking up the pieces of your heart
You close the curtains and it’s like a sad farewell
You’re picking up the pieces of your heart
These walls have way too many stories they could tell
So you’re picking up the pieces of your heart

Chorus
You cannot leave a piece behind
Hearts must be put back together
You need a little peace of mind
And no more stormy weather

Things can’t go back to the way they were before
So you’re picking up the pieces of your heart
No more coffee in the morning and kids happy out the door
You’re picking up the pieces of your heart
And when you feel weak is when you got to be so strong
So you’re picking up the pieces of your heart
You curse all the reasons that you held on for so long
Now you’re picking up the pieces of your heart

Chorus

Things will get better you can feel it in your bones
So you’re picking up the pieces of your heart
Head down that highway not caring where you’re going
Cause you’re picking up the pieces of your heart
Call up your friends and say that you’ll be dropping by
That  you’re picking up the pieces of your heart
Find some little roadside stop and have yourself a cry
Cause you’re picking up the pieces of your heart

Chorus

Small town Saturday night    @ Connie Kaldor SOCAN

It’s just another small town Saturday night
There’s a sunset goin’ down.
The groceries are bought and the choir’s had its practice
The trucks are rolling into town
They park by the bar in the fading light
It’s just another small town Saturday night

Billy wears his aftershave and he can’t wait
He’s always looking for a date
He hasn’t been lucky in a year or two
Since his high school grad but what you gonna do
And anyway this could be the night
It’s just another small town Saturday night

Chorus
You gotta drink till you feel alright
You gotta drink till you get a little tight
You gotta drink til someone starts a fight
It’s just another small town Saturday night
The girls know they are pretty and the boys know they’re right
It’s just another small town Saturday night

You know every body in this little old bar
Who likes to dance, who likes to shout
You know their families and you know their car
If you don’t you soon find out
You can play a little shuffleboard drink a couple beer
When the hockey team comes in win or lose they get a cheer

Chorus

Put all the money in the middle of the table
Drink ‘til its gone if you are able
Take the bottle caps try toss them in the glass
Anything to make another Saturday pass.

Gord is back from his job in the city
With a girl, the lucky mister
They all feel jealous until they see
That she has brought her sister
That smartens em up
That livens the place
There’s a smile on every single guy ‘s face

They’re buying her drinks till she feels alright
They’re buying drinks until she gets tight
They’re buying her drinks till two get in a fight over who buys her drinks on this Saturday night
She knows she is pretty and they know she’s right
It’s just another small town Saturday night.

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BREAK A MAN    @  CONNIE KALDOR SOCAN

You can see them in the boardrooms
Or asleep outside your door
The ones who were broken
And couldn’t take any more

And what was it took
The strength from their stride?
What was it broke
All their hope and their pride?

Chorus
What does it take to break a man?
What does it take to break something that strong?
What does it take to break a man?
Whatever it is it’s wrong

Was it something that was taken
Was it something that was done?
Did they lose the race
No matter how hard they had run?
Was it someone who pointed out
All that they lack?
What was the straw
That broke somebody’s back?

Chorus

And war will do it
Again and again
When faced with the cruelty
Of their fellow men
Some heal up some hide
The lines and the cracks
And some it just stops them
Right in their tracks

Chorus

And some they fight on
They rage through the rain
Some use drugs and the booze
To dull the pain
And some make music and beauty
I marvel it still
How they carry that rock
Up that mighty high hill

Chorus

TROUBLES fall like rain  @ Connie kaldor  SOCAN

Does it seems like it’s a time when troubles fall like rain
Bad things come in ones and twos and then come back again
Does it seem like bad luck is the only luck you know
Does it seem you’re all dressed up with no place left to go
Chorus
Hard times when troubles fall like rain
Rich or poor they happen the bad luck and the pain It’s hard times that’s when you understand
All of us at sometime need a helping hand

Does it seem like life’s unfair Yes I guess it must
Does it seem like all the lies have misplaced all the trust
Does it seem there’s no way out that every door is barred
Does it seem you’re tired now, Everything is hard.  

Chorus
Does it seem like all is lost that all has gone astray
You know it won’t last forever it just feels that way

Does it seem the way is dark and there’s no way out
Does it seem that to be heard
You have to jump and shout
Does it seem like trouble has caught you in its teeth
Well after night the daylight comes this is my belief

Hard times when troubles fall like rain
All of us at sometime need a helping hand
In those hard times when troubles fall like rain
If you’re not in hard times give thanks again and again
Remember hard times that’s when you understand
All of us at sometime need a helping hand

 

Run out of love   @Connie Kaldor

I never want us to run out of love
It seems to happen so much
You’re both on the go
And before you know
You haven’t even talked and you’re way out of touch

I never want us to run out of love
I want to keep my eye on that cup
The minute I see that it is running low
I’m gonna stop and fill it up, stop and fill it up

Chorus
Because LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE
Love is the sweetest thing
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE
It makes the bees buzz it makes the little birds sing

I never want us to run out of love
I’ve seen a couple that happened to
Man it was bad
Things got so sad
Kids in the middle and what do you do

I never want us to run out of love
To wake up one morning and find
That all of the love that we had counted on
Somehow got left behind, somehow got left behind

Chorus

I never want us to run out of love
I’m tired of that old melody
You love me, you’re gone
Now I can’t carry on
That’s not the song for me

I never want us to run out of love
I want to wake up at 92
Look across the bed
And see your old grey head
And know that in my heart
That just like at the start
I am still in love with you
I am still in love with you

Chorus

Rickety old Railroad Track  @Connie Kaldor SOCAN

Chorus
It’s a rickety old railroad track that
takes you out of town and brings you back
And you can’t go faster than the clickity-clack of that
Rickety old railroad track

Because leaving is never smooth
There are roots to rip and tear
And the friends that waved goodbye to you
Are calling you back there

Cause you never know where you’re going
And you never know who you’ll meet
You could be all alone on a stormy night
Or sitting on easy street

Chorus

You may be leaving on a bus or leaving on a train
Or heading down the big highway
There are things that are pushing you down the road
And things that make you want to stay

Cause the sunrise comes too early
And the sunset much too late
You think that leavings hard to do
 But its perilous hard to wait

And you better keep moving yes you better keep rolling
No you better not give up now
Cause your damned if you do and you’re damned if you don’t
So you better keep moving somehow

Chorus

Adventures may be calling you
Saying catch me if you dare
And your bags are packed and loaded
And your thoughts already there

You’re on a fastest car out of town
Or leaving on the fastest plane
But your heart will be arriving later
on a slow and a rickety train

But you better keep moving yes you better keep rolling
No you better not give up now
Cause your damned if you do and you’re damned if you don’t
So you better keep moving somehow

Chorus

 

I'M GONNA Love you                   @  Connie Kaldor SOCAN

Chorus
I’m gonna love you
I’m gonna love you
I’m gonna love you like you’ve never been loved before
I’m gonna love you like you’ve never been loved before

I’m gonna to love you
Just you wait and see
You’ve never been loved by anyone
Till you’ve been loved my me
I’ll love you in the morning
I’ll love you all night long
I’m gonna love the right back into you
I’m gonna love away the wrong

Chorus

You know love is crazy
It’s a runaway train
There are those that pick you up and toss you round
And drop you off again
But I am not like that
I won’t want to play that game
I love you and I want you
And I’ll always feel the same

Chorus

You can’t tell me that you love me         @ Connie Kaldor SOCAN

You can’t tell me that you love me
It’s something that you cannot do
You cannot lie when you look me in the eye
It’s something that I love in you
Someone else has made you feel
In a way I never could
The heart it seems goes where it must
And never goes where it should

Chorus
Where did our love go?
Just because I feel it, that won’t make it so

And you can’t tell me that you’re leaving
But I can see it in your eyes
I used to see what you feel for me
Now all I see there are goodbyes
Someone else’s eyes will light dear
At the mention of your name
The heart it seems goes where it must
And there is only love to blame

Chorus

SWEET OLD HEARTACHE      @ Connie Kaldor   SOCAN

I knew I was crazy but the touch of you was strong
I leapt into that fire saying I’d love you right or wrong
And sweet was your smile as you looked into my eyes
Sweet was the loving and sweeter were the lies

Chorus
It’s a sweet old heartache that I’m riding with tonight
I’ll ride with it ‘til dawn
Cause you don’t love me and I know you never will
I’m riding out of here I’m gone

My Friends tried to tell me but I stuck by your instead
I stepped into the ring when I leapt into your bed
My pride took a beating when it walked into that fight
It’s bruised and it’s is broken but it walked out of here tonight

Chorus

And here’s to the man with the wandering eyes
He skips across hearts like a stone
And here’s to the woman man who fell for his lies
Her heartache is all her own

Chorus

That’s what Mothers do         @ Connie Kaldor SOCAN


May all your friends be true
Everything you do feel right
May all your morning windows
Be filled with sweet sunlight

May you always walk with pride
May you never stumble and fall
May every dream you want come true
I wish for it all

Chorus
I know it’s just a wish
And they sometimes don’t come true
But that won’t stop me wishing
Cause that’s what mothers do

May you smile and laugh each day
May there be tears that touch you too
And may all your troubles seem like things
That you can get through
And when you feel you’re lost, may a path appear
May you in your darkest hour know that somewhere love is near

Chorus

I know people can be cruel
I know that life’s not always fair
And the odds are good you’ll love someone
Who doesn’t really care

But may you not love them for long
May they fade into the past
May it be the one you learn from
Before you find the one that lasts

Chorus

 

 

Sky with nothing to get in the Way

@Connie Kaldor/Paul Campagne   SOCAN

My Mother painted a picture, a canvas of sky
I look at that painting each day
Cause when you’re from the flat land then you understand
Sky with nothing to get in the way
 
Chorus
You know you’re lucky if you’ve seen the Cypress Hills
And the cut knife by the river at dawn
If you have seen the sun go down from the edge of town
The memory lingers long after it’s gone

And I’m sure you remember a kiss that you stole
And the way that it made your heart fall
Between the loves that you caught and the ones you did not
It’s the sweetest you love to recall

Chorus

And spring is a wind, it’s cars covered in mud
Summer’s dusty with guys at the café all talking of yields
And winter is cold, it’s nights down at the rink
Fall’s a halo of dust around the combine lights out in the fields

And they won’t tell you they love it cause that’s just not done
There are things that you feel but don’t say
But somewhere deep in your heart, there’s always a part of
Sky with nothing to get in the way

Chorus
