about

Camaromance Montréal, Québec

The subjects of love, life, and death are all dealt with in an elegant fashion in Martine Groulx’s compositions, as they reach out and grab listeners. Camaromance’s third album, The Parade, is more grounded in Americana, with a hint of shoegaze and less in the folk/pop universe that she originally came from. For fans of pretty girls that rip your heart out, guitar in hand. ... more

Track Name: Marguerite
I’ve been waiting for you to get here
all this pleading gets us nowhere
another story fed by fear
a landing party, a volunteer
to be fair it wasn’t a bad design
maybe a strange idea
but you know I’m not getting any younger
with indecision, another year
some bad investments that disappeared
and something scary, all played by ear
no inventory, a fate unclear
to be fair it wasn’t a bad design
maybe a strange idea
but you know I’m not getting any younger
Track Name: Audrey
so it started down in griffintown
a pre-emptive strike turned food fight
then back to more familiar grounds
plateau street lights and bike paths
and who knows?
maybe she’ll nd mr. right
either way, this is just fun for tonight
oh, so much fun just joking around
under the moon light, so bright
two girls getting drinks around town
looking for insight and a fun night
and who knows?
maybe they’ll nd mr. right, who cares?
this is just fun for tonight
all in without making a sound
their eyes giving green lights
lips locked tight
and grabbing some cabs eastbound
for nothing but delight until sunrise
and who knows?
they might have both found mr. right,
who cares?
this turned out to be a great night
Track Name: Charles
oh I wonder what will happen
when you finally read that book
will it change the conversation?
will you give me a second look?
well I know you’re not scott pilgrim
and I’m not that katie clay
still it could be inspiration
to get you to look my way
oh I don’t have seven exes
and you can’t just fix the past
oh this life is filled with hexes
yet our story always lasts
well it’s true that you’re quite younger
and I’m always in my head
but if we both feel the hunger
we could spend our day in bed
Track Name: Antoine
oh it’s all right
we can just stare at the stars
just for tonight
I can forget all my scars
you’ll be my satellite
the story just needs to pause
oh you’re shining so bright
the sky will finally be ours
and you know, it’s just for today
we’ll be the wind chasing the clouds away
oh it’s all right
you don’t even need to speak
the air is so sweet
I can just sigh in relief
with the infinite space
my loss can evaporate
just this one taste
I’ll grieve at my own pace
and you know, it’s just for today
we’ll be the wind chasing the clouds away
oh it’s all right
Track Name: Jo + Gab
it was ten years ago last week
still waters, they run deep
it was ten years ago last week
all those promises you can’t keep
you’d think I learned my lesson
after all those tries
you’d think I’d be a better judge
of all your lies
this road is longer than I expected
I keep on tagging along
this road is longer than I expected
it just keeps going on
it started simply enough I know
just before the first snow
it started simply enough I know
I don’t know why I let it grow you’d think I’d hear the warnings
and walk away instead
you’d think I’d know better
than to let you in my bed
this road is longer than I expected
I keep on tagging along
this road is longer than I expected
it just keeps going on
it was ten years ago last week
still waters, they run deep
Track Name: Koro
I packed my bag and flew across the world
because my heart was ready to unfurl
and you showed up and took me to the beach
where you swam always slightly out of reach
please take the bait
it’s no mistake
I know you want to take things slow
tomorrow I have to go
then you said you’d take me to the vines
and I thought I could read between the lines
I found a place
where we could finally be alone
and I made sure
my intentions were well known
please take the bait
it’s no mistake
I know you want to take things slow
tomorrow I have to go
tomorrow’s just too slow
Track Name: Jonathan
she said: “just make a list of what you truly fear and then
in time you’ll see, it all will become clear”
those times when things were rushed
they never stood a chance
’cause when you skip ahead
it’s never called romance
so slow, you took your time
now I know, I know you’re mine
red wine and cigarettes
and speaking of the past
the pain making the night
sky briefly overcast
softly spoken secrets
bring up something new
shadows dissipate
the moonlight can break through
taking the time to learn
brings us past the aftermath
and now we’re free to breathe
and follow the same path
with quiet evenings and lazy afternoons
comes confidence
our hearts become immune
Track Name: M
you know what?
I don’t need your advice
and your love
comes at too high a price
oh the kids
they’re doing just fine
’cause we’ve been
through this a thousand times
Track Name: Martine
toujours le même lit
le même vide, toujours le même bruit
y’a personne anyway
personne qui m’donne le goût de me l’ver.
l’alarme sonne, ça fait un an
que j’me pardonne, que j’me pardonne
non, j’aurai pas d’enfants
girls c’matin j’ai pas de fun
toujours les mêmes nuits
le même drink, le même ennui
tous les hommes sont partis
tout l’monde veut quitter mon lit
l’alarme sonne
ça fait au moins dix ans
que j’pardonne, que j’pardonne
la mort et les absents
oh girls c’matin j’ai pas d’fun
oh girls c’matin j’ai pas d’fun
des larmes partout sur mon téléphone
l’amour et les mots blessants
l’amour est un piège rassurant
un poison, un cadeau violent
Track Name: David
at first, the stars seemed aligned
and our limbs felt good intertwined
we could breathe and finally unwind
but the past crept up from behind
you were always speaking your mind
telling me softly
it just wasn’t my time
you know, I’ve always been shy
but that kiss made it hard not to pry
and you felt what was hidden beneath
and my lips just smiled in relief
you were always speaking your mind
telling me softly
it just wasn’t my time
