    Time to Kill

    Time to Kill

    We could meet down at the pier
    If we both have time to kill
    After dark no ones’ around
    The ocean is our only sound

    We could meet down at the fair
    If we both have time to kill
    At the ferris wheel at ten
    Well go round and round again

    We could meet up on the edge
    Of the building on the ledge
    We could stand there real still
    If we both have time to kill

    We could meet deep in the woods
    If we both have time to kill
    There beside the blackened tree
    We could get down on our knees

    We could meet at the motel
    If we both have time to kill
    Secretly, all clandestine
    Have an affair in our minds

    Lets meet under the streetlamp
    In the fog all cold and damp
    We could find out what is real
    If we both have time to kill

    We could meet and swallow pills
    If we both have time to kill
    One to make you taller then
    One to make you small again

    Lets meet at the funeral
    If we both have time to kill
    Dressed so serious in black
    There would be no looking back

    We could meet up in disguise
    At the restaurant in the sky
    Acting like we’ve only met
    If we both have time to kill

    We could meet, not say a word
    If we both have time to kill
    Silently well understand
    Smile and take each others hand

    Descending

    Descending

    Now that we’re here
    Now that we believe this is real
    Now without fear
    Now that we know
    Now we’re exposed to the truth
    For this one time only I will
    Raise up my voice

    Cause we are descending
    We are descending
    We have descended

    Lift up your head
    Lift up your worried heart
    Falling apart
    With hands are closed
    With eyes are open wide
    For this one time only I will
    Raise up my voice

    Cause we are descending
    We are descending
    We have descended

    Bring the silver
    Bring the gold
    We have been answered now
    We have been told

    Now that we’re near
    Now we’ve released all our fears
    Now we can heal
    With our pens poised
    With our darkness alight
    For this one time only I will
    Make my choice

    Cause we are descending
    We are descending
    We have descended

    Avalon


    Avalon

    They gave you life
    They gave you all you needed to survive
    They gave you houses for your things
    They gave you light
    They gave you directions to the place I wait
    The place I wait to take you
    Home again, home again
    They gave you wings to fly back home again

    We parted ways
    Someone said we’d meet again some day
    This reminds me of the end
    Fear creeps in
    Finds all the places where you
    Hide your sins
    This place where we begin to fight again, fight again
    They gave us sight so we can find our way

    The fog is thick
    Hands in our pockets can not wave us in
    They have surrounded
    Where or when
    Time has eluded me this spell I’m in
    I’m losing my grasp on you
    You’re out of sight
    We’re almost there though you are out of sight
    Somehow I know that we will meet again
    Meet again
    In Avalon

On Shadows, Danielle handpicked a short-list of “musical soul mates” to contribute their particular quirks to this recording. Shadows was co-produced by the multi-multi-talented Jonathan Lewis (the Plaid Tongued Devils, Rembetika Hipsters…), who also played violin, accordion, mandolin and keyboards. This project features the tightest rhythm section in Calgary, with Peter Moller on drums and Diane Kooch on bass (both of Kris Demeanors’ …
