about

Different Paths is Camaromance’s second album released in 2006. The subjects of love, life, and death are all dealt with in an elegant fashion in Camaromance’s folk-pop compositions. Martine Groulx chose her good friend, Patrick Watson (piano, vocals) to produce this album. The talented artist arranged the 9 folk-pop songs that make up Different Paths. 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

Track Name: Sorry baby
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.
Track Name: Mostly Harmless
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.
Track Name: 28 balloons
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
Track Name: Your fridge and I, the insomniac
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
Track Name: Eulogy
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
Track Name: Mixing business with pleasure
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
Track Name: Promises
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.
Track Name: Cracked egg
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
Track Name: Beatrice
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.
