Songs by Campbell & Green - Robert Campbell / Cailin Green

A Simple Life

Maybe I’m just another superman standin
on the top of the world lookin down
I don’t want to fall when the fear gets too much
I don’t want to crash into the waiting crowds

I’m tired of saving the same situations
gotta save em in the nick of time
I want a day, gimme some space
I wanna sleep straight through the night

If I had a simple life, I’d sit and celebrate,
and in the quiet, I would close my eyes and drift away
I’d spend my time in the sun, I would always be young
If I could taste… A Simple Life

I’m sick of chasing those higher expectations
When I never reach the finish line?
I’d settle for less, if the rest of the world
would see that no one makes it out alive

but if I had a simple life, I’d sit and celebrate,
and in the quiet, I would close my eyes and drift away
I’d spend my time in the sun , I would always be young
If I could taste…

If I could just take off this cape,
give myself a break
Take my time and save the world another day…
but I don’t , and I won’t , no I don’t

but if I had a simple life, I’d sit and celebrate
and in the quiet, I would close my eyes and drift away
I’d spend my time in the sun, I would always be young
If I could taste… repeat CHORUS…
If I could taste… be young if could taste, if only I could taste…
the simple life

Beautiful Today

Beautiful Today
I'm feeling pretty good today
I'd really like to stay that way
sun is shining, everything looks bright
Shaking off my dusty blues
Puttin' on my favorite shoes
Trust my feet to lead me left or right

If anyone gets in my way
I'll just love them come what may
Sing a happy tune out loud

cuz it's Beautiful Today
can't take that away
cuz it's Beautiful Beautiful Beautiful Today
ya it's Beautiful Today
can't take that away
cuz it's Beautiful Beautiful Beautiful Today

Make my own parade of smiles
wave at every mother's child
give away my happiness for free
No dark clouds will shadow me
and I put my faith in this perfect
ask the whole world to dance with me

If anyone gets in my way
I'll just love them come what may
Sing a happy tune out loud

CHORUS
Solo

If anyone gets in my way
I'll just love them come what may
Sing a happy tune out loud

CHORUS

ya it's Beautiful Today
can't take that away
cuz it's Beautiful Beautiful Beautiful Today yeah Beautiful Today yeah Beautiful Today yeah

One Simple Glance

What is there to talk about after all these years?
Is there nothing to discuss besides the weather?
What is there to say that’s not been said before
In our September?

Words no longer mean that much
One Simple Glance is all we need to say

Like a river carves a canyon in its search for the sea
Love has stripped the layers of our fears
The sands of time keep record of all we’ve been through
And you’re still here!

Words no longer mean that much
One Simple Glance is all we need to say

Like old blue jeans and coffee and the smell of your hair
We’ve grown accustomed to the stillness in between
No need to fill the spaces with lengthy conversation
In the silence of our everyday routine

Words no longer mean that much
One Simple Glance is all we need to say

If one day we forget those words our memories hold
We’ll talk about the days and the weather
When there’s nothing left to say, I’ll just hold your hand
In our December

Words no longer mean that much
One Simple Glance is all we need to say
One Simple Glance is all we need to say, to say

Queen Of The Wild

Queen Of The Wild
Whistle blows its platform tune, Time to say goodbye
to the boy with the longing in his eyes
far to young to understand to know the reasons why
she has eyes for her wanderlust with him she must fly

Queen of the broken hearts
Queen of those who roam
Queen of the Wild and free
doomed to ride alone

Speakers cry departure times like a thousand times before
More than fifty countries, she hungers still for more
Fair thee well to a gentle soul, he was sweet and kind
But her thrist for roving wins again, leaves another man behind

Queen of the broken hearts
Queen of those who roam
Queen of the Wild and free
doomed to fly alone

What will she do when age becomes her jailer
will she witherr like a captive wild bird
is there someone to sooth her with his words

Open seas now call to her, places to explore
Happy people smile and wave to those upon the shore
see the sadness on his face, they’ll never meet again
she turns towards the setting sun, her new lover now the wind

Queen of the broken hearts
Queen of those who roam
Queen of the Wild and free
doomed to fly alone

Queen of the broken hearts
Queen of those who roam
Queen of the Wild and free

[Lyrics]


Storm

Where do little birds go, when the storm rages on?
Do they fly with the wind, follow its song 'til it's gone?
So small and so light, do they lose their fight
with forces greater than they?
When the storm rages on

I am a little bird too when the storm rages on
Bending my will as it blows, staying too long
Driving me deeper in to the woods
testing my strength and resolve
When the storm rages on

break-

I am a might gale too, when the storm rages on
with a furious glory, my kiss turns everything round
beating my rhythm against my walls
my calm lies in wait for the dawn
When the storm rages on,
When the storm rages on
and on...

Biography

Campbell + Green is a duo of talented musicians whose vocal harmonies and honesty captivate audiences with their warm and relaxed on-stage presence. Their thoughtful songwriting of a contemporary folk/pop style with a touch of traditional blues, country and light rock, range from happy to powerful to poignant.
Their recent album, “When One Door Closes”, spans the deep roots of life experience these two share, with moments that most of us can relate to in our own busy lives. Not your average duo, this couple is going against the odds in the music industry, forging paths traditionally paved for young up-and-coming stars. Both 50 something, they have taken on the world, made the leap, and are following their passion and love of music.

Robert Campbell – vocals/piano/keyboard

Robert hails from Edmonton, Alberta, where he discovered piano and organ at a very young age. In his early professional days, he has had the pleasure of touring with a number of first rate country musicians such as Rocky Swanson, Patricia Conroy, Susan Jacks, Buddy Knox, and Rick Tippe. In later years, Robert played in the Vancouver area doing pop, blues, R&B and country with other artists and as a solo act. In recent years, he has really come into his own, writing and performing with his wife and partner, Cailin Green. He still plays country and blues occasionally with East Coast artists such as John Campbelljohn, Kevin Davison, and Andrew Frelick.

Cailin Green – vocals/guitar

Born in New Brunswick, Cailin has lived in several places across Canada while growing up and began her singing career at an early age in Montreal. Originally trained in choral groups, she went on to study voice with various teachers over the years, experimenting with different genres and performances.
Cailin has appeared in numerous musical theatre productions, choral works, concerts, and music reviews, both solo and with bands. She has also studied guitar, piano and percussion, acts and dances, and has directed and produced several musical productions and plays for community theatre.
