Sorry baby 05:46
Sorry Baby So sorry baby, I’ve had this wall for way too long Oh sorry baby, I just don’t know where I belong So sorry baby, you’ve had your chance, leave me alone I thought of you, in my bed It was not love, I guess I misled But then this guy showed up instead My carelessness, like yours, was misread Wedding questions brought on so my desire fled All this forgotten, I’ll stay alone instead.

Mostly Harmless I held the wheel, one prairie afternoon. Signs flew by, saying we’d be there soon. You read out loud from a Douglas Adams’ book. Your voice cracked and that’s all it took. You only loved me in that dress, you sure loved me in that dress. You only loved me in that dress, you sure loved me in that dress. We stopped the car, a few miles from Brandon. Your breath on my neck. My teeth on your chin. I laid my head on some old magazine. You smiled and said: “Is it as cozy as it seems?” You only loved me in that dress, you sure loved me in that dress. You only loved me in that dress, you sure loved me in that dress. We stared at the sky from that giant field. My heart was racing like you wouldn’t believe. You kissed my lips, got into the driver’s seat. I closed the door, I had to admit defeat. You only loved me in that dress, you sure loved me in that dress. You only loved me in that dress, you sure loved me in that dress. You sure loved me in that dress I sure loved you in that dress, I sure loved you in that dress.

28 balloons 04:26
28 balloons When you come back, I’ll already be gone Feeling a little happy and undone Well, that’s all right, because I’m already lost I’ll just close my eyes and try to adjust To the hospital lights and the spinning of the room Up in a tree, there are 28 balloons But then you said, it wasn’t just a lie, you said that one day I would fly You said that all wasn’t lost; you said that I would make it across I remember the rain made your eyes greener And the way the doctor said you were still in danger But I don’t mind because somewhere along the way` I found out I was more at peace everyday With the fact that sometimes dogs have to get shot And somehow people manage to get caught But then you said, it wasn’t just a lie, you said that one day I would fly You said that all wasn’t lost; you said that I would make it across

Your fridge and I, the insomniac It’s in your machine, where I still believe Woke up at dawn, no one around, only a groan I felt all alone, in my old home, without a phone Sound filled the room, just like a tomb, thick as a fume I felt all alone, in my old home, without a phone It’s in your machine, where I still believe

Eulogy 03:15
Eulogy The stale green color of a hospital corridor The magazine that we’ve all seen before But then the surgeon opened up the door The police, a nurse, the answer we were waiting for You left me without leaving; he left while I was grieving I stood there without breathing, my thoughts were missing meaning So what am I supposed to do now? You made this choice, I don’t know how I felt your pain but I can’t connect You looked at me with your eyes filled with greater These years I passed with you by my side Looking at me with your eyes filled with pride Are now a past that should be left behind Our love has now been left paralyzed You left me without leaving; he left while I was grieving I stood there without breathing, my thoughts were missing meaning

Mixing business with pleasure You know what? You’re right; it does come down to fear The thought of an endless fight is bringing down these tears We’ve been here side by side for the best part of two years I’m keeping my head up high because my conscious is clear Remember when we were looking up at the shine of the stars? Isn’t it sad that we never made it out of the fog? I could have told you something I could have tried in so many words I think you said it best, when you said we’d be just fine It was all one big test for our ethics and our spine It’s true that I’m content although the struggle is undefined The money’s all been spent but my truth keeps me in line Remember when we were looking up at the shine of the stars? Isn’t it sad that we never made it out of the fog? I could have told you something I could have tried in so many words I guess I always knew it was never meant to last Your voice and your smile would become a thing of the past I’ll always keep with me your teachings and your laugh And the good times we had from Vancouver to Halifax Remember when we were looking up at the shine of the stars? I could have told you something Ain’t got the time and I ain’t got the words I could have told you something I Ain’t the kind who stands on the curb I could have told you something I could have tried in so many words Shining lights

Promises 02:47
Promises You promised you’d stay, but I don’t see you around I promise you’ll pay Now the sun is coming down, it’s like I never saw it before But you’re not around anymore I always sing about my fear of abandonment, it’s the same old thing But I couldn’t resist dragging out this old cliché from the back of my list, anyway. So I guess I’ll stop trying to figure all this out It’s not really my fault I just can’t believe that there’s not more to life than this I’d feel really relieved to be missed.

Cracked egg 02:31
Cracked egg Your fingertips against my lips, the thought of you and then... It almost felt like home If you come over, I swear, I will rest my head Into your shoulder, I swear, I’ll make you stay in bed If you come over, I swear that I’ll calm down

Beatrice 03:32
Beatrice So you told me, one more question and you’d be out the door I can’t help it, I always wanted more And you stood there, in my kitchen, poured yourself a drink And your stories, they couldn’t help me think I’m so sorry that it had to end this way I was hoping you’d be back for just one more day So we walked back to the staircase and you gave me a hug And you promised that I wouldn’t stay in love You made your way to the subway and I was left alone The glass shattered, my body turned to stone So my summer, so eventful, made my loves intertwined And I blamed you for somebody else’s crime But I’m still here always hoping, to see you by my side But I promise, I’ll keep it all inside.

Serge Nakauchi Pelletier (guitar, drums, lap steel) and Chris Baang (keyboards, piano), of Pawa Up First, also contribute to the album’s ambiance.

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
