Track Name: James Bay
James Bay

Chorus
James Bay is calling my name
James Bay is running through my veins
James Bay will always be my way
James Bay is who I am today


Home of the Mushkegowuk Cree
that's where I wanna be
Sitting at camp sipping on tea

Every time I go out on the land
I become a new man
Makes me so alive inside

chorus
James Bay is calling my name
James Bay is running through my veins
James Bay will always be my way
James Bay is who I am today

Home of the mighty goose
Home of the mighty moose
People so strong proud and free

It don’t matter where I go
Every trail I'm on leads me home
I'll be James bay bound until I die

Chorus
James Bay is calling my name
James Bay is running through my veins
James Bay will always be my way
James Bay is who I am today

Home of the Mushkegowuk Cree
Watching North of 60 on the tele
Track Name: Indian In Disguise
Indian in Disguise

I'm trapped inside these institutional walls
Everyday I become somebody else
I once sailed the seas
Now I roam these streets
There was a time I was free

chorus

Feel so lost in these shoes
Who do you want me to be
Indian in disguise I feel so defeated
Everyday is a fight but I hold my head high
Can't you see I can't change who I am

Yes I love being brother of the bear
Something nay you all but understand
I once roamed this earth
Now I've lost my worth
I was born from this dirt

chorus

bridge instrumental

chorus
Track Name: Hopeless Romantic
Hopeless Romantic

I'm driving down this road in my beat up old truck
And I'm thinking maybe someday I will marry her
But her Mama she don't like me very much
And I think her Pa feels the same way too

Ever since I saw her dancing in the fields
That's when I knew me and her were meant to be
But she don’t even know my name
And we've been neighbours since we were two

chorus

I guess I'll always be a hopeless romantic
I'll keep on sending you flowers my lovely
And writing beautiful songs for you
Until the end of time I'll be waiting for you

Please dont think of me as some big old creep
I'm just a dreamer living in a fairly tale
Maybe someday you'll find me in your heart
But for now I'll keep on sending love your way

chorus

instrumental bridge

chorus
Track Name: Worth The Fight
Worth the Fight

It's a cold and windy day
Can you please just stay
I dont like the way i’m feeling today
And baby i'm the one to blame
For all your tears and your pain
I'm sick and tired of living my life in vain
And it's driving me insane...so insane

chorus

I just wanted you to be alright
I miss you the most when I wake in the night
And every time I look at your picture I cry
And I keep on asking why...oh why

Where did we go so wrong
Everything we had is gone
And I wish that I could change this song
When I think of your smile
And your pretty little style
And all the while we were in denial
I would walk a thousand miles for your smile

chorus

Bridge
Maybe we should give it just one more try
Cause baby what we had is worth the fight
Oh yah...

chorus
Track Name: Small Town Girl
Small Town Girl

She's got a simple smile
One of a kind
Her heart is warm like the sunrise
She's quiet and shy
But it's a humble disguise
For what she's really like inside

chorus
I dream of a small town girl
She's good enough for me
She's the one I dream of all my life
She's got a hidden soul
Like a story that's untold
Or a fairytale about to unfold

She's got a simple style
With humble ties
She'll never talk you down cause she's so kind
Those eyes give me butterflies
With every glance
She makes my heart feel so fuzzy inside

chorus

bridge
I've lived not quite enough
Until I find that small town girl
I will go to the end of the world
To find that small town girl

chorus
Track Name: Since You Been Gone
Since you Been Gone

This blue sky may come down one day
And all at once you hope you get by
And in the end we find we can't stay
And there's never time to say good bye

chorus

Since you been gone away
I've been feeling down
And I heard a whisper say
That you'll find me all around
Since you left that day
I've been feeling blue
And there ain't no other way
That you'll find me yes its true
Since you've been gone away...

You pray to God that he'll help you get by
Cause all at once you feel so weary
I look for you in the big blue sky
All I find are dreams of dreary

chorus

This blue sky may come down one day
And all at once you hope you get by
And in the end we find we can't stay
And there's never time to say good bye

chorus
Track Name: What Do We Do With You?
What do we do with you

Seems like yesterday you were just born
Now you've fallen so madly in love
Remember when you use to find me so cool
Now you find me so embarrassing

Pre chorus
Oh.....oh what do we do with you
Oh oh what do we do with you

Chorus

Remember when we were so close
And now I can't tell you anything because you know it all
Oh how does life go by so fast
I remember a time when I was young and I was a lot like you are now
Oh how does life go by so fast

Seems like yesterday you took your first steps
And now you want to ride my motor bike
Remember when you use to hug and kiss me
Now you roll your eyes when I'm near you

Pre chorus

Chorus

Remember when we were so close
And now I can't tell you anything cause you know it all
Oh how does life go by so fast
I remember a time when I was young and I was a lot like you are now
Oh how does life go by so fast

Track Name: Save My Life
Save my Life
I'm in a dark place
I cant find my way
Back to your light
That's where I wanna be
And the shadows on the wall
Scare me wide awake
And I can hear the whispers say
I'm too far gone now
And I'm on the edge now
I don't care about myself
One thing I do best
Is hurt the ones I love the most

chorus

Someone come and save my life today
Cause I can't take this self abuse anymore
And if I only could turn back the wheels of time
I would make all my wrongs be right for you

I can't break this habit
I need it so bad
Like the desert needs the rain
It takes away all my pain
It don't matter where I go
it don't matter what I do
I can't seem to get away
From this ugly sickness I've become
And I'm on a death wish
And I don't care about myself
One thing I do best
Is hurt the ones I love the most
chorus
bridge
I'm on the edge now what am I suppose to do
I got no soul left in me can't you see
And I'm scrapping the bottom of the barrel
I gotta find my way back to your light

Ah OOOOOOO..
chorus
Track Name: Mooshum (Grandfather)
Mooshum

Intro Harp

Last night I dreamed of you
You were talking crazy out of your mind
And that’s when I knew
You were gone now the last of your kind
And I’ve seen the prairie provinces
And the moonlight shining on the Rocky Mountains
Yes it’s beautiful…

Chorus
And I thought of you then
And all the things you said to me that day
How was I suppose to know
That you’d be leaving?

Harp

You killed so skillfully
But you did so that you could survive
You live so gracefully
In a time and place that we called our own
And I’ve seen the Northern Lights
And the moonlight shine across the frozen Tundra

Chorus

Bridge
And I see you in the stars when I look into the night sky…Mooshum
And I know I’ll be al right cause I feel you all around me…Mooshum
Mooshum kititan…(I call you grandfather)
