about

Collette Savard's debut recording features solid song writing, catchy melodies and engaging storytelling. Colored with captivating touches of mandolin, lap steel, and the harmonies of jazz, it is a unique blend of pop and traditional influences. When Collette Savard was a small child growing up in North Bay Ontario, she only wanted to do two things, to have tea parties and to write songs. Realizing that "tea party hostess" was an unlikely path to success she left behind the cucumber sandwiches and lumps of sugar to pursue her passion for songwriting.

Track Name: Maybe Tonight
Each night I go out walking
On the street down below
To meet my destiny
Cause when I was a child
I remember knowing without doubt
That life would just happen to me

So I’m helping it along
I’ve been waiting far too long
All I can do now
Is walk the street alone

And Maybe tonight
There’ll be light in the darkness
It will all become clear
Why I’m here to begin with
Maybe tonight
There’ll be light in the darkness
Cause I can no longer see my way

Tonight it’s raining hard
But I put on my shoes
I have nothing left to lose
This empty apartment is colder than the rain & there’s no one here but me

It would be a shame
If she was stranded in the storm
Waiting for me to find her & I didn’t go cause

Maybe tonight
There’ll be light in the darkness
It will all become clear
Why I’m here to begin with
Maybe tonight
There’ll be light in the darkness
Cause I can no longer see my way

Give me some good news please
Is this all there is for me
Is this what I get
If what you get is what you see
And….

Maybe tonight
There’ll be light in the darkness
It will all become clear
Why I’m here to begin with
Maybe tonight
There’ll be light in the darkness
Cause I can no longer see my way

Maybe tonight
There’ll be light in the darkness
It will all become clear
Why I’m here to begin with
Maybe tonight
There’ll be light in the darkness
Cause I can no longer see my way
Track Name: Midnight
Midnight after the sun is gone
My hair is blowing wild
My body is striding onward
I’m lost in my head
But I know where I going
Those most now are in bed
I’m just getting started

Since I was a child
My mama said to me
You need to see the sun girl
If you want to be happy
The day it is alright
The sun won’t miss me none
But when the moon is shining high
That’s when I’ll have some fun

The city is playing like an old sad song
Like a fairground in the distance
That you’re longing to join
It will suck you in & it might spit you out

But there’s no use standing here
When we’ve got all night
I’m just waking up I can’t go to bed
This night is just a baby & this baby must be fed

It’s midnight
The sun is gone
The stars are shining bright
I’m moving on
This night was made for me
This night was meant to be
There are those of us who sleep
There are those of us who dream
Track Name: Full Of It
Hello little one
Little is what you are
You may think
You’re better than the rest of us
I’ve finally seen the truth
I thought you should know
It’s what I’ve suspected all along

So many people
Walk around like they own the place
So many egos to feed
That I’m poor
For once in my life
I see it for what it really is
So just flush it down
I won’t smell it anymore

You’re full of it
Knee deep & soon you will drown
You’re full of it
And when your bubble bursts
I will see you on the ground

How many times
Have I looked back
To see I was a fool
Ate up all the lies
And followed like a mule
All I’m left with now
Is a bad taste in my mouth
Enough is enough

You’re full of it
Knee deep & soon you will drown
You’re full of it
And when your bubble bursts
I will see you on the ground

You’re full of it
Knee deep & soon you will drown
You’re full of it
And when your bubble bursts
I will see you on the ground
Track Name: In You
From all my fairy tales you are
The man who slays the dragon & saves me from it all
Now that real life is slowly seeping in
I’m beginning to realize
I’ll always have a friend
In you

It’s cold outside but here inside
I’m warm It’s nice to finally feel like
I really have a home
Look at how cynical they are
Remember I was once too before
I found it all
In you

I’ll never wander very far
I know that now because I know who you really are
If you’ll take all of me too
There’s no way we won’t make it through
I have all my faith
In you
