about

This album represents the latest recording session by Silent Five on Sunday, November 11th, 2012 at the Gas Station on the Toronto islands by Dale Morningstar. Each song in this set was recorded in one take with no overdubs or edits (or headphones or separation, for that matter.)

The intention was to capture the band just as it was around the 10-year mark of its existence. Audio vérité. This album is Silent Five's third release and is made up of five of the seven songs recorded that day, in chronological order.

Track Name: Girl With The Guitar
Back in Nova Scotia I was drumming in a band
Life was living easy, day to day and hand to hand
One day when we were jamming, she pulled up in a car
It was the first time I saw the girl with the guitar

My older brother was the leader and the singer of the tunes
He fixed his eyes upon her as she walked into the room
She looked at him and smiled as he played her up to par
And I couldn't take my eyes off the girl with the guitar

At the end of the rehearsal we went and got some beer
My brother sat beside her and he whispered in her ear
"Come with us tonight, we got a gig at the bar
And you'll be playing in the band as the girl with the guitar"

I was doing all I could to play it cool and keep the beat
But when she started moving, my heart was missing beats
She came in on the chorus on the 32nd bar
I knew I was in love with the girl with the guitar

The fire hall was blazing, we were playing rock'n'roll
She was digging in the rhythm from the bottom of her soul
The crowd was going wild and that night she was the star
Everybody fell in love with the girl with the guitar

I was packing up my drums when the band was getting drunk
She came to me and said, "Come put your gear in my trunk
Roll the windows down so we can smoke in the car"
And I was driving away with the girl with the guitar

At the end of the summer the band was breaking down
My brother and I weren't talking and she was leaving town
She gave me a kiss and then she lit a cigar
And that's the last time I saw the girl with the guitar

Everybody's changed and nobody stayed the same
It's someone else's money and it's someone else's game
When the band is paid and leaving and there's no one in the bar
I always will remember the girl with the guitar

Track Name: The Infinite Sea
The infinite sea
Is infinitely
In it's infancy

I'll follow you
If you'll follow me
To the infinite sea

Track Name: Lost At Sea
Buried Gardens on Canyon Hill
Is where I last saw snow
There was a hanging bridge in the air
And dark clouds hanging low

It was early in the afternoon
You were walking up ahead of me
When the trees began to turn and sway
I remembered I was lost at sea
I remembered I was lost at sea

Sable Island on the edge of the shelf
Was the last time I saw land
Suddenly faces appeared in the wind
Across the winter desert sand

It was late in the the afternoon
When the ocean began to grow
A white squall appeared from the south
And I was fighting the undertow
I was fighting the undertow

Carolina! Carolina!
It's good to see you!
It's good to see you!

I'm afraid of the ocean at night
And all of the leagues below
I'm drifting in a fading canoe
Dissolving in the current flow
Dissolving in the current flow

My head is spinning, my memory's gone
I don't know how how this began
I see the water beginning to glow
It looks like sugary sand
It looks like sugary sand

I see a place where I'm born again
And everything is moving so slow
I think I want to step overboard
And lie on the sugary snow
And lie on the sugary snow

Track Name: A Promise
I want to make you a promise
To do right by you
Never to be dishonest
But to be faithful and true

Every fear, thought and feeling
I will gladly confess
Just so you never get the feeling
That you ever have to guess

I could never stand above you
Because I am only a man
And as a man I'm gonna love you
And do the best that I can

I'll never try to deceive you
I've got nothing to hide
And I will always believe you
I will swallow my pride

I want to make you a promise
I want to make you a vow
If life takes everything from us
We'll stay together somehow

If the Titanic is sinking
And you must leave me to the sea
I will look into your eyes without blinking
Until God sets me free

I want to make you a promise
I want to make you a vow
When hard times fall upon us
I'll love you just the way I do right now

Track Name: Lying In The Basement
Lying in the basement
Looking at the stars overhead
Lying in the basement
Looking at the stars overhead
Thinking about every last word you said

I saw you in the doorway
Just before the lights went out
I saw you in the doorway
Just before the lights went out
An almost empty moment
An eternity of doubt

(I wanna make you a promise
I wanna make you a promise
i wanna make you a promise
To do right by you
To do right by you)

I'm sitting in a bathtub
You're somewhere deep beneath the earth
I'm sitting in a bathtub
You're somewhere deep beneath the earth
I'm sitting in a bathtub
Before my own self worth
