  • Crusty

    DSMobileImage320X460Lyrics/Music – DAVID STOREY – SOCAN 2013 Keep your hat brim low expectations in check Anything can happen and we ain’t home yet I got more of life behind me than I do up ahead I ain’t no one’s blue eyed hero but I got no regrets I’m crusty and I’m tough And I refuse to die I’m gonna stare this crazy world Straight in the eye Some say Jesus will save me In his spirit I must dwell But Jesus only helps the ones who help themselves. The rivers still rising the sky is low and grey Keep your eye on the horizon take it day by day I’m crusty and I’m tough And I refuse to die I’m gonna stare this crazy world Straight in the eye Keep your hat brim low expectations in check Anything ...

  • Hymn # 1

In a world that likes to tear itself apart Do you have a plan to mend our broken hearts? Or are we on our own to save the day I’m just trying to find my way All I don’t know is hard to comprehend Why is a word that never seems to end So I try to get the little things right And let hope be the difference between dark and light I don’t want you to buy me a ford I don’t want you to save my soul I just want to ...

  • I Can’t Complain

    Picture6Lyrics/ Music – David Storey – 2014 – Socan Sarah drives the school bus Lord knows we can use the cash. Me I fix small engines Out back in my garage. I like the way the leaves change in the fall. I like fireworks on the long weekend. I like a case of beer and hockey on TV. I can’t complain Won’t sing a sad refrain Cause sunshine follows rain And the world will turn again I can’t complain Jimmy joined the forces He said it’s what he was born to do. They gave him a gun and sent him to the Middle East We love him hope he gets home soon. I like the colored lights at Christmas. I like the way the snow drifts up against my shed. I like the smell of wheat after its’ been ... Read more .....
  • I’m Coming Home

    DavidStorey_ComingHome_AlbumCover_LoResHOME – Music lyrics Storey Socan 2014 All my battles are done Some I’ve lost and some I’ve won Climbed the mountain and touched the sky Sat in shadows as people passed me by I’m coming home. To you Sailed out to the edge of the sea Way out where all the monsters be Felt the heat of the dragon’s flame Boil my blood and curse my name I’m coming home To you Skin and bones and blood and heat Tough and cool and soft and sweet These things I lay at your feet Hoping you remember me I’m coming home I’m coming home I’m coming home Read more .....
  • Last Loon on the Lake

    Free Times Cafe 01 02 2013Lyrics/Music – David Storey – 2014 Socan I’m the last loon on the lake Summer is gone and my friends have flown on I’m the last loon on the lake There’s ice in the bay and I should fly away I’m the last loon on the lake There’s frost on the ground and the leaves are all down   My friends all think I’m crazy, cause I love a frosty sunset They’re all drunk on Marguerites hanging with Jimmy buffet The sand boils beneath their wings the sun is a flaming ball And I’m up here drunk on Lakeport waitin for the last leaf to fall.   I’m the last loon on the lake Summer is gone and my friends have flown on I’m the last loon on the lake There’s ice in the bay and ...

  • Sea to Sky

    Free Times Cafe 01 02 2013Some say I was born where the mountains meet the sea My mother was the wildcat and my father the great grizzly Others say I’m from back east but no one really knows I’m the just the kid you heard about who lives for rock and snow You might catch me in the early morning light Way out on the spearhead  rippin up  the alpine Yeah yeah oh my Seas to sky baby sea to sky I’m a slider and a scoundrel and I’m scary when I’m stoned All I own is a pickup truck and pair of overlords There ain’t no woman ever gonna take me home Just one look at me and they know I’m too far gone So don’t you go tellin me to stide behind your line Cause ...

  • St. Adelaide

    TheRails  Lyrics/Music – David Storey – 2014 – Socan There’s blood on the floor at city hall tonight. The mayor and the press are fighting over money lies and pride. You can hear the racket way out on the east side. Where there’s kids running round with guns and death behind their eyes. But there’s a candle burning In the Church of Saint Adelaide. The lost and sick have washed up, they’re looking for a break. They’re holding hands and singing songs of Love and hope and faith. The candles are burn in Saint Adelaide The moneys all north of Bloor and it ain’t trickling down. The cabbies down on parliament are just barely holding ground. The free way is crumbling, it’s hard to get around. The shadows from those tall dark towers ... Read more .....
  • The Greatest

    FXCD0157Music and Lyrics – David Storey Socan 2012 Let’s head down to Main Street and huck a goober off the bridge Try to catch your sister skinny dipping out at bare ball ridge. We fire up some bottle rockets outside old man Thompson’s door nd stick around just long enough to see his dentures hit the floor Then we’ll steal Mrs Spencer’s bra strap right off her clothes line We’ll use it as a sling shot to hurl apples at the sky We are the greatest my buddy and me We are the greatest the best you’ll ever see I’ll take my old jack knife and slash a hole in our thumbs Our blood will flow together as brothers we’ll be one Then we’ll bury the skull and cross bones that ...

  • Time Truth Trust

    cheechMUSIC LYRICS STOREY SOCAN 2013 All the laughs honey, all the tears All the kids and, all the years We’ve been scared, we’ve been scrappy We’ve been silent and we’ve been saucy Time truth and trust Have been very good to us I know you and you know me We’ve let each other grow into who we’re meant to be There’s been magic but it’s been no fairy tale A steady hand and Hearts that never fail Time truth and trust Have been very good to us Time is the space we took to learn how to forgive Truth is the strength it takes to love without regret Trust is the anchor that holds us both in place Something to hang to cause everything will change Time truth and trust Have been very good to us Read more .....
