about

This is the first studio produced album for "Noah Edwards." Some of these songs have been waiting to be released unto the world since 2006. They were crafted with love and tireless work and dedication from all those involved. I'd like to give a big shout out to Mike Battle, Eric Paone and Anna Frances. Without them, these songs wouldn't sound the way they do. Big thanks to Todd Hooge at the beautiful Hooge Studios, Jason Cook for Mixing and Brock McFarlane from CPS Mastering. We acknowledge the financial support of the Government of Canada through the Department of Canadian Heritage (Canada Music Fund) and of Canada’s private radio broadcasters. The picture used for the artwork was taken in Spring 2014 in Black Creek, on the beach I grew up where many of the imagery in these songs in inspired from. I can't help but find some symbolism in the way the seagull is flying fearlessly towards the thunderhead in the distance. Thanks for listening.

Track Name: Those Were the Nights
Try as you might, you can’t recreate
The feel of those mid summer nights
The sun on the lake, our smiles they shone just as bright

Those nights we lay out , cool grass on our backs
The stars spread before our eyes
Our minds wandering off into the cloudless night

Those were the nights when we would sing
From our hearts and it just felt so right
we’re coming home tonight

We knew in our hearts things were bound to fall apart
That happiness like this could never last
We cherished it all like the last drops of fine red wine

As the sun began to set, on the horizon our eyes met
With tears in our eyes it was time
To let go I, will see you again friends of mine

Those were the nights when we would sing
From our hearts and it just felt so right
There were things we shared, that our hearts hold dear
We will never forget those times, we’re coming home tonight

We will find our way home in the end

Those were the nights when we would sing
From our hearts and it just felt so right
There were things we shared, that our hearts hold dear
We will never forget those times, we’re coming home tonight
Track Name: Luck and Chance
I just sit and wait
For things to go my way
I don't know why it hasn't happened yet but
I've been here for days

It's all just luck and chance
Or someones lacklustre attempt
I wish to play instead of watch the game
but I just couldn't hop that fence, I couldn't hop that fence

Oh, whats a boy to do

A girl came by today, she told me not to wait
that I could have it all if I just
take that first step out of the gate

Now she's standing tall
with a man whose heart is not too small
To go after the life he wants
And now a dirty glass is all I got
Stare at the clock for far too long

So, I wait until the time is right

I know things will work out when we see the silver lining
I'm scared things won't work out and I've wasted my time in the clouds

Life's too short to wait
For the fickle hands of fate
To lay the path down at your feet
That will lead you straight to your grave

We've only got today
So don't you give your time away
For every breath that leaves your lips
Could be the last breath that you take
So don't you let it all go to waste

But why do I still wait
Track Name: Sleepless
Well this has been the longest night
That I have had in all my life
I wish that I could justify
Why I still think of you, 'cause I still think of you

I wish that I could make things right
And see just how you feel inside
But it's too late for you and I
So why, why can't I sleep
'Cause I, I still can't sleep

So now I try and walk away again
I wish that I could just pretend
That it will all work out in the end
I love it when you bring me down again

I wish that I could make things right
And see just how you feel inside
But it's too late for you and I
So why, why can't I sleep
'Cause I, I still can't sleep
And you still haunt my dreams
Track Name: The Path Less Traveled
I am but a simple man, I have no need for stacks
Of gold and silver piled as high as trees
Just a place to rest my weary head, when day is at it's end
And with another's on my chest I drift to sleep

Maybe it’s the simple act of stayin' true to yourself
Trying to find the beat among the rests
Or maybe its diving in head first without a care
As the path less travelled stretches to the end

Oh I won't let doubt steal my breath   

They say that everyones afraid of dying, well I think some are more afraid to truly live
When the answers that you seek are before your very eyes
The questions often buried deep within

While everybody else is worried about the future, ocean sands await beneath a starlit sky
Cast your shoes aside, follow me into the tide
Phosphorescence burst like supernovas bathe us in their light

The stars will guide our way tonight

Follow me to tidal pools and summer nights
Let the ocean breeze caress your skin, and I will hold you tight
Follow me to tidal pools and summer nights
Let the ocean breeze caress your skin, and I will hold you, I will hold you tight

I feel like I’ve been slipping in and out of love for years
Not knowing when the time is finally right
To drop to one knee and to look her in both eyes
And know that everything will be just fine

But I don't have to worry, I've got many years ahead
To chase this vision thats laid in my mind
I've got a long way to go and a lot more to see
I’ll have a restless wandering heart until I die

And I won't be coming home tonight
