Songs by Pat Canavan

Bury Me

I can hear the sound of laughter fading,
?Falling further into the deepest wells?
I have?
All the mountains I have moved
can’t keep ?The one beneath my feet from crumbling
?Crumbling away

?And I feel it slipping now?And I feel it falling now
?And I feel it coming down?Down over me?
All over me

?Shining worlds where once we wandered swallowed
?By the shifting sands of you and I ?and time
?All around the shells of what we recognize
?Get left behind as restless spirits?
Move forever on

?And I feel it coming now?And i feel it coming down?And I feel it slipping down?Down over me?All over me?Bury Me
?Solo
?And I feel it slipping now?And I feel it falling now
?And I feel it coming down?Down over me?
All over me
?Bury Me
?releasing me to sweet surrender
cause it’s ok, the letting go?cause it’s ok, to just let go

[Lyrics]


Erika's Song (Rain Down From The Sky)

Erika's Song (Rain Down From The Sky)

We were talking about
How our lives they were gonna be

Over a couple of beers
We melted away years, it seemed

Then I found out, there was no doubt ya ya ya
On your very next birthday
You were jumping from a plane

You rained down from the sky
Cause it’s the best way to be free
Dance Dance the supergirl dance
You gotta get your high kicks and see yeah

Ya let the river run wild
Cause it’s the best way to be free
Dance Dance the supergirl dance
You gotta get your high kicks and see yeah

Working late afterdark
Then your car just wouldn’t start so we
Had time to talk about
where our lives they are going to lead.

You said you were leaving,
To follow your dream ya ya ya
I’m just glad that we were friends
Cause your jumpin yet again

You rained down from the sky
Cause it’s the best way to be free
Dance Dance the supergirl dance
You gotta get your high kicks and see yeah

Ya let the river run wild
Cause it’s the best way to be free
Dance Dance the supergirl dance
You gotta get your high kicks and see yeah

[Lyrics]


Happy Happy Happy New Year To You

Happy Happy Happy New Year to You
Happy Happy Happy New Year to You
Another year has come and gone
A new one’s comin
Now Bring It On
Happy Happy Happy New Year to You

Jump on the floor
Let’s Dance some more
A Brand New Year Has Just Been Born

Starlight Starbright

Starlight Starbright

Starlight Starbright first star I see tonight
I wish I may – I wish I might have that wish
I’m dreaming of tonight

Starlight Starbright first star I see tonight
I wish I may – I wish I might have that wish
I’m dreaming of tonight

Hands in the air
Reach up to where your heart will follow
Be unaware life isn’t were you want it to be
Go with the flow but let it be known we dream tomorrow
See what appears cause life it comes from the thoughts we Believe

Starlight Starbright first star I see tonight
I wish I may – I wish I might have that wish
I’m dreaming of tonight

Hands in the air
Reach up to where your heart will follow
Become aware now is a time we don’t get to repeat
Go with the flow but let it be known we dream tomorrow
See what appears cause life it comes from the thoughts we Believe

I wish I may – I wish I might have that wish
I’m dreaming of tonight

[Lyrics]


You'll Say

You’ll Say

Speak like an optimist
Live like a minimalist
Love like it’s your very first day
Be who you want to be
Not what you’re supposed to be
The more you love the more comes your way

You’ll say come what may
I’ll search to find away
To find an answer

I’ll know enough to know
Why people come and people go
Forever after

But here in this moment
No movement all is still
Naked in our purpose
Spent virtue leaves us thrilled
Still…hear..fell this moment

Chorus
Darling can you see
What you and I can be
Even when the world comes crumbling down
I know you and me
So loving and so free
Free to know we’ll always stand our ground

OOOO!

Repeat above and add

And that’s when you said
Speak like an optimist
Live like a minimalist
Love like it’s your very first day

Be who you want to be
Not what you’re supposed to be
The more you love the more comes your way

And that’s when you said
Speak like an optimist
Live like a minimalist
Love like it’s your very first day

Be who you want to be
Not what your supposed to be
The more you love the more comes your way
OOOO!

Biography:

Pat Canavan is a music Songwriter, Producer, recording engineer and Video Producer, Director, editor and Entertainment Personality.
But his favourite thing is this.....

I love writing music. Few things come close to that pure moment of inspiration when a song springs forth and commands attention to become... alive. I'm also a natural entertainer. My music is award winning and has been featured in short films, commercials and many streaming channels.

I have completed new album called "You Give Good Vegas" and is set for a 2015 release.
Here is what others have said.

“Pat makes songs that stick in your head” says Brad Thompson of QMI, Toronto.
He approaches his music with a true composer's sense. Pat has mastered the raw fury of a rock band and marshalled the awesome force of a full orchestra.

Pat is a songwriter with a remarkable singing voice who has fronted such Canadian rock bands as U4EA with hits “Don’t Take It Away” and “Mystery”, The Tundra with a collaboration with Honeymoon Suite bassist Gary Lalonde and Pat Canavan and HERE best known for the songs “These Other Things” from the award winning film “Amplifier” and “Brand New Morning” from the award winning film Masterpiece Monday.
