about

Written between spring 2009 and spring 2010. Very Montreal and Darlington Place, the street where i lived at that time. Oddly enough, it was recorded far far away - in Nashville, Tennessee with Brad Jones and wonderful musicians.

Track Name: Do You Feel The World?
Look around, my friends
do you see your country?
do you see your towns, do you see your cities?
look around, my friends, look a little bit further
do you see the world?

Walk around, come on
do you hear it moving?
do you hear its songs, are they faint and soothing?
walk around, come on, walk a little bit further
do you hear the world?

BRIDGE:

It’s been quite a stay
but I’ll be on my way tonight!

Feel the breeze come in from a window open
feel the breeze come in from across the ocean
Feel the breeze come in from a little bit further
do you feel the world?

whoah-oh!
do you feel the world?
