 A STORY ABOUT YOU AND ME  music & lyric / Trisha Gagnon

VERSE 1

This is a story about you and me

I don't know if we're suppose to be

But we got married anyhow

It didn't take us very long to find out

What love was all about

VERSE 2

My parents said that we'd never last

Got together way too fast

When promises are made

It doesn't mean they have to last forever

Almost never

CHORUS 

Cause I've fallen in love with you

That's what I choose to do

And it feels so beautiful

Being in love with you

VERSE 3

We were young and just didn't know

How we'd change or where we'd grow

The challenges ahead

Sometimes left us shaken

Our hearts breakin'


VERSE 4

With the Good Lord's help He'll see us through

Staying together me and you

The best is everyday

With my sweet friend and lover

There is no other


CHORUS 2

Cause I'm falling in love with you

That's what I choose to do

And it feels so beautiful

Being in love with you

BRIDGE

Falling in love is easy

Something anyone can do

But staying in love through all years is special

And I choose you

CHORUS 3

Cause I'm falling in love with you

That's what I choose to do

And it feels so beautiful

Being in love with you

I'm falling in love, with you

I've fallen in love, with you   

Verse 5

This is a story about you and me

I don't know if we're supposed to be

But we got married anyhow

It didn't take us very long to find out

What love was all about

 On My Way To You  music & lyric/ TRISHA GAGNON  

Verse 1  

When the swans return to our corn field in winter 


And snow caps the mountains that surround 


You'll know by this, I'm on my way to you, love 


Dearest friend I'm homeward bound

If you see the white lilac bloomin' in springtime

And sweet perfume fills the night air

You'll know by this I'm on my way to you, love

My heart with you I long to share

CHORUS 1

From the shores of this distant place

The stars outshine the night

And I wish you were here by my side

As true as the crow flies I'll return to you

'cause in each other’s arms the world feels right

And you're always in my thoughts and prayers each night

VERSE 3

If the sun never tires from the long hours of summer

And fruit trees are not weary to bear

You'll know by this, I'm on my way to you love

My true companion I'll be there

VERSE 4

And when the landscape’s on fire

With the colors of autumn

Morning fog turns to diamonds on grass

You'll know by this, I'm on my way to you love

We'll be together at long last

CHORUS 2

From the shores of this distant place

The stars outshine the night

And I wish you were here by my side

As true as the crow flies I'll return to you

'cause in each other’s arms the world feels right

And you're always in my thoughts and prayers each night

VERSE 5

When the swans return to our corn field in winter  

And snow caps the mountains that surround

You'll know by this, I'm on my way to you, love

Dearest friend I'm homeward bound

You'll know by this, I'm on my way to you, love 

The truest friend I've ever found

I set out on a river

With a  map of dreams to guide me

The stream of living water

And oh oh, to gather strength and peace of mind

Travelling on, the river of life

Who has suffered many trials

She'd give anything she had

To help somebody else in need

And oh oh, she inspires me to keep on trying

Travelling on, the river of life

She's such a good friend to me

She's having a baby

A new son in our family

And oh oh, the memories are ours to save

Travelling on, the river of life

On and on, the river of life

And I won't take for granted the price He had to pay

So I'll shine like a star along my way

And I won't let my dreams drift away

With my map of dreams to guide me

The stream of living water

Is gonna carry me on my way

Oh oh, we go on and on

The river of life

The river of life

  MY GRANDPARENTS HOUSE  music & lyric / Trisha Gagnon

 
Verse 1

A child went walking, on a coal black night

All by herself, and stayed out of sight

Her parents told her, to stay at home

She didn't listen, and left alone

VERSE 2

It wasn't long 'till her parents, the police too

Went out searching, trying to find a clue

How their little girl had vanished, right out of sight

Then her Mom remembered, what she'd said that night

CHORUS 1

I miss my Grandpa and Nona so dear

We have biscuits and tea, oh I wish they were here

I know I'm only four years old

And I'm not suppose to go

But I know my way to my grandparents house


VERSE 3

Up through the stores, in the village square

She saw a little red flashlight, for sale there

But she had no money, and journeyed on

'Till the lights from the town, were all but gone


VERSE 4

The rain fell harder, and the night was black

She couldn't see the way, and wanted to go back

She felt a little bit scared, and all alone

Until her neighbour found her

And brought her safely home


CHORUS 2

I miss my Grandpa and Nona so dear

We have biscuits and tea, oh I wish they were here

I know I'm only four years old

And I'm not supposed to go

But I know my way to my grandparents house

 
VERSE 5

The door opened, and to her surprise

Stood her Nona and Grandpa    

And tears filled her eyes

She said Mom and Daddy

I'll never more stray

And I'll always listen, to what you say


CHORUS 3

I miss my Grandpa and Nona so dear

We had biscuits and tea,oh I wish they were here

I'm no longer four years old

And I'll always miss them so

I know my way to my grandparents house

I'll see them then at my grandparents house

 HUMMINGBIRD  music & lyric / Trisha Gagnon

CHORUS 1

Hummingbird how high you fly

On fairy wings all through the sky

Sipping nectar from the flowers

You love to play in warm spring showers

Take me with you

Could you take me with you
 
Verse 1

Folk lore tales of garden sprites

Magical spirits taking flight

If I could hold one next to me

I'd make a wish and set it free

Because he doesn't belong to me

CHORUS 2

Hummingbird how high you fly

On fairy wings all through the sky

Sipping nectar from the flowers

You love to play in warm spring showers

Take me with you

Could you take me with you
 

VERSE 2

Dancing fairies at dusk and dawn

A flash of colour and they're gone

I held one in my hand today

He made a wish then flew away

I know he could not stay

Hummingbird how high you fly

On fairy wings all through the sky

Sipping nectar from the flowers

You love to play in warm spring showers

Take me with you

Could you take me with you
 
Chorus 4

Hummingbird how high you fly

On fairy wings all through the sky

Sipping nectar from the flowers

You love to play in warm spring showers

Take me with you

Could you take me with you
 
Won't you take me with you

 The Legend Of The Ghost Rider   music & lyric / Trisha Gagnon

Verse 1
 
There's a legend that is told of a town and a curse

A promise born from greed, proved to make things worse

When a man trades his honor for the blackest of coal    

The devil writes his name and he forfeits his soul

Verse 2
 
In the Kootenay territory a princess there did live

The daughter of a chief who vowed her hand to give

With the secret of the necklace she wore upon her breast

 William Fernie deceived them both

and brought a curse upon the rest

Chorus 1

When the evening sun is setting on Mt. Hosmer's rugged face

A ghostly form appears there for all time to haunt this place
 
Reminding those who live in Elk Valley below

Of price and consequence and we reap what we sow
 
The ghost rider's shadow in plain view for all to know

Verse 3

The First Nations daughter she would never be a bride

The man who's name was Fernie broke her trust and lied
 
In revenge her father swore a curse

That would stay upon the land

Famine flood and fire will strike with a heavy hand

Chorus 2

When the evening sun is setting on Mt. Hosmer's rugged face

A ghostly form appears there for all time to haunt this place

Reminding those who live in Elk Valley below

Of price and consequence and we reap what we sow

The ghost rider's shadow in plain view for all to know

Verse 4

Well disaster came and made it's home 

In that coal mining town

Flood waters rose and fires scorched

And the mine it did come down

The town of Fernie cried out loud

With this curse how can we live

The Kootenai People heard their plea

Fernie's wrongs they did forgive

Chorus 3

When the evening sun is setting on Mt. Hosmer's rugged face

A ghostly form appears there for all time to haunt this place

Reminding those who live in Elk Valley below

Of price and consequence and we reap what we sow

The ghost rider's shadow in plain view for all to know

The ghost rider's shadow in plain view for all to know

WHEN AM I GONNA GET OVER YOU   BRYAN WHITE & JOHN TIRRO 


VERSE 1

You told me on the day that you left me

To take real good care of myself

But it's so hard to do if I don't have you here 

To hold me when I want nobody else

CHORUS 1

When am I gonna get over you

And stop living in the past

When am I gonna get over you

When my poor heart beats it's last

VERSE 2

Soon you'll wake me

And you'll say I've been dreaming

And I'll just have to wait 'till then

'Till my time here is done

And the angels come to take me

Then I'll be with you again

CHORUS 2

When am I gonna get over you   
       
And stop living in the past

When am I gonna get over you

When my poor heart beats it's last

Someday I may love again

Then you'll be with me even then
                                       
CHORUS 3

When am I gonna get over you

And stop living in the past

When am I gonna get over you

When my poor heart beats it's last

When my poor heart beats it's last

 HE IS HERE WITH ME music & lyric/ TRISHA GAGNON


VERSE 1 

My garden is the place where I go

To ease my worries and woes

God comforts me with everything that grows

One single flower is all I need to see

To know God will always be here with me

CHORUS 1

Greater that the heavens above

Is His never changing love

Oh what joy I feel within

And the peace I've found in Him

Amen

VERSE 2 

Now I walk along in fields of woven hay

And watch the sunset kiss goodbye the day

When I'm feeling sad in any way

The mighty mountains remind me how to see

And know God will always be here with me

CHORUS 2

Greater than the heavens above

Is His never changing love

Oh what joy I feel within

And the peace I've found in Him

Amen

VERSE 3

Now it's true this world can be so unfair

And people can seem unaware

But when I really need to find someone who cares

I look through my bible to see

And know God will always be here with me

CHORUS

Greater than the heavens above

Is His never changing love

Oh what joy I feel within

And the peace I've found in him

Amen, Amen, Amen  ~AMEN~
