"This album is the product of a burst of creativity commencing March 2013. I've focussed like never before on becoming a better songwriter. Along the way I've worked on my engineering and mixing skills by taking a course. It took about 6 months to put this all together- based mostly in my bedroom as we live in an apartment in Victoria. Back in Toronto I had my own basement studio but life was so busy I had little to show for it- but I certainly became a better drummer. Now, without home reno responsibilities and kids not in diapers anymore-- and with no more commutes to work-- it seems I can squeeze more music into my life- ahhhh, blessings!" ~D.Wolfe, Oct 2013

Thank-yous:
for the instrument loans: Rus Mott , James Acken
for live performing support: Lauren Knerual, Tony Nordstrom, Ray Mohr
my family- especially Janine for support during the process,
and especially to YOU for supporting indie musicians and artists.

Track Name: Daughters and Sons
Daughters and Sons
© Dean G Wolfe, 2013

Do what you’re told
Fall into place
Try to fit in
keep the dirt off your face
Don’t ask what the truth is
Believe all the lies (x2)

We are not cogs inside machines
broken dreams, broken dreams
We are not pawns in jealous games
without names, without names

Change is coming
Systems failed our daughters and sons
Gifts and treasures,
Change will come through daughters and sons

Don’t live the corporate fantasy
worker bee, worker bee
Don’t be a ball of plasticine
Gelatine figurine

Do what you’re told
Fall into place
Try to fit in
keep the dirt off your face
Don’t ask what the truth is
Believe all the lies

They give you that paycheck
To buy what you’re sold
They treat you like silver
you’re made out of gold
They give you more homework
they steal all your time
Track Name: Home
Home
© 2013 Dean G Wolfe

I left things behind when I put my foot forward
for life is defined by the brave, not the coward
Things weren't the same they in fact got much better for
change is the game that rewards the go getter

Home is not a place or a time
Because home is In your heart and your mind

It’s true that I cried once it hit home: I’m going,
I staggered unsteady the patient wind blowing
Its tough to move on though We made sacrifices
I’ve tallied the cost Still don't know what the price is

Home is not a place or a time
Because home is in your heart and your mind
Home is not a line on the sand
because home is in the palm of your hand

Hold me closer Keep me in your dreams
Hold me closer Keep me in your dreams-- dream, dream...

So many words lie between us; can’t they be just like a bridge?
Chains that were once underneath us have just freed us like the wind, like the wind
Track Name: Can't Keep Sunshine On A Shelf
Can’t Keep Sunshine On A Shelf
(c) 2013, Dean G Wolfe

there’s something about the way you smile
there’s something about the way you are
Maybe I’ve been lost for quite a while
One long lonely night without a star

If I keep you to myself
you’re not there, you’re not there
Can’t keep sunshine on a shelf
it’s everywhere, everywhere

There’s something about the way you love me
helps me recognize i need to grow
though I've barely won a single trophy
Now I radiate the winning glow

Left my childish ways behind
Its all brand new, all brand new
Happiness seemed hard to find
but it finds you, it finds you

If I keep you to myself
you’re not there, you’re not there
Can’t keep sunshine on a shelf
it’s everywhere, everywhere
Track Name: Stretch Away
Stretch Away
(c) 2013, Dean G Wolfe

If you want to know ‘bout yourself; read a thousand books on a shelf
there’s no telling what you could be; like a seed turn into a tree (whoa whoa...)

Branching out’s a good plan to make; not too far though, you’ll start to break
Keep it close to what you do best; then you’ll stand out from all the rest (whoa whoa.....)

stretch away from the box
crack the code, find the key, break the locks
you might cry, you may bleed
Be a light, be the truth and then you lead

It’s a laugh, how small we can feel
Tell me who invented the wheel
and this universe that we’re in
used to fit on top of a pin

Fear be gone; It’s contrary
to your progress and your glory

Hate be gone; It’s not funny
Sticks to you like sticky honey

Guilt’s the same; It’s a shame
like a never ending game

So lies be gone; that’s the bomb:
Lies are what it’s built upon
Track Name: Bungee Cord
Bungee Cord
© 2013, Dean G Wolfe

Left home, on my own
life takes a brand new tone
everything gets amplified
world’s feeling twice as wide
I flew right out of my nest
This was real, not a test

No more holding hands
Started playing in my own band
No more safety nets
Getting by on my own sweat
Things never go as they’re planned
when life shifts like the sand

I draw my breath in deep
Each time I take a leap
hopefully I don’t touch the ground
Just like a bungee cord I’m stretched and never bored
Life sure sends me spinning around

Kids having meltdowns
TV’s crashing to the ground
worried about the cost of things
worried about what worry brings
and I’m not the worrying kind
Can I just hit rewind?

Eat fresh, eat canned
Having nothing solid planned
try to keep the children fed
never thinking far ahead
Do I have a place in my mind
where things go all the time?
Track Name: I'm Going to Marry You In the Summer
I’m going to marry you in the summer
© 2013, Dean G Wolfe


I’m going to marry you in the summer
when the air is warm and sweet
I’m going to take your hand in mine
and then I’ll sweep you off your feet
We’re going to wake up every morning
‘neath a cool and crisp white sheet
I’m going to marry you in the summer
when the air warm and sweet

I’m going to marry you in the summer
in the church that’s near my home
near the places as a child
that I played and I did roam
these memories, they echo
as they fade into the heat
I’m going to marry you in the summer
when the air is warm and sweet

I love the love you give me
I’ll hold your hand so tight
I treasure every single moment
You're the girl that is my bride/ wife

There was something extra special
in your eyes when we did meet
my heart began to flutter
and i found it hard to speak
what magic do you radiate?
that magic do i seek
I’m going to marry you in the summer
when the air is warm and sweet

verse 1 repeat

Track Name: Vintage Love
Vintage Love
© 2009 Dean G Wolfe

I've got a lot to give
but i forgot how to give it.
and you deserve it all
i've got to show you and live it.

I let my love grow old
And kept it all bottled inside.
at least my love's a good vintage.
................
I've been a dead sea.
and my feelings won't flow, no rivers.
i'm stuck on intake but my outflow is blocked
with slivers

of criticism
focussing on the things i don't like
How did I reach this position?

Whoa oh oh
Vintage Love’s not the love I should give
vintage love's not the love I should live

I let my love get old
I took it -and you- for granted
I see that better now
I know that you couldn't stand it

As if our flame could burn
Forever and ever the same
If I don't put my heart in it

Whoa oh oh
Vintage Love’s not the love I should give
vintage love's not he love we should live

Fully invested in the time I spend with you
Fully appreciating everything you do
It all came easy when our love was all brand new
At least I've done it all before

Solo

Its always darkest when the day turns into night
Won’t put the brakes on when I'm headed for the light
I'll jog my memory our love was at first sight
These feelings never go away

Fully invested in the time I spend with you
Fully appreciating everything you do
It was so easy when our love was all brand new
At least I've done it all before
Track Name: Class Is Over
Class is Over
© 2013, Dean G Wolfe

The bell has rung now; we’re crashin’ through those big old doors
I feel so alive now; the freedom sinks into my pores
Class is over; no more sitting in straight rows
The grass is greener when it’s underneath your toes
Is there something wrong inside those walls?
You know whatever gets propped high - it falls

Let’s go play now; do the things we want to do
Just follow your heart; and to your heart be really true
Because there’s something wrong inside those walls
You know whatever gets propped high - it falls

Class is over now; Class is over now
Class is over now; Class is over now
(musical interlude)
There’s something, something wrong inside those walls
There’s something, something wrong inside those halls

Class is over now; Class is over now
Class is over now; Class is over now
(musical interlude)
There’s something, something wrong inside those walls
There’s something, something wrong inside those halls
Now race down that hall; Life goes on somehow;
Now race down that hall; Life goes on somehow;
Put your books away; now get out and play
Put your books away; now get out and play: play, play, play, play, play, play, play, play...
Track Name: Dancing Cheek to Cheek
Dancing Cheek to Cheek
© 2013, Dean G Wolfe

I like to sleep in late
I like to stay up later
and I rarely answer my phone
I’m just a cool creator
not a discipline-hater
and my muse won’t leave me alone

I’m a one-of-a-kind
and an unusual find
but really I’m not so unique
Because we’re -every one-
each like a ray of sun
and we’re dancing cheek to cheek, cheek to cheek

I wanna run outside
I wanna go for a ride
I wanna sit down down on a beach
I want a conversation
and a confirmation that I’m
filling my spiritual niche

I’ve got kids to raise
I’ve got bills to pay
I’ve got a sweetheart at my side
I’ve got books to read
and blogs to write
and songs going on the fly

I’m still here with you
You’re still here with me…..
