Another Singer (free) 04:55
ANOTHER SINGER Lyrics: Stephan LaCasse I haven’t slept since Montreal It’s been a while since I felt this tall I’m still spinning from the alcohol And my ears still ring from the rock ‘n roll My leather coat still smells like rain I loved a girl but left her name My feet hurt, but it’s a good pain And I’m on my way to your place again This city doesn’t need another singer Walk down to the harbourfront to linger And catch a breeze, ‘cause it’s free And that work for me I tip my hat to Tylenol These dominoes are set to fall I feel good ‘cause I am free But I can’t shake the ache inside of me I sit home in my room for awhile Let a tear fall and kiss my smile We all have days where we think too much But it’s a slippery slope to out of touch and... Breathe deep, release This isn’t war, just unease There’s a bunch of roses on the railroad tracks Somehow exposes what we can’t get back The clouds are coming and coming fast The rain exposes the dust-filled cracks and...
I'll Wait 04:49
I’LL WAIT Lyrics: Stephan LaCasse Caught in time Free from All that we’ve become On our way On our own Far too far from home You and I We’re forever Somewhere in some time You cry Because we’re apart But not in our hearts I’ll wait -- you’ll see If you wait for me I’ll be good to you If you’re good to me Life goes by So by for now We’ll hold on somehow Life goes on You’ll see I’ll be waiting
Ghost Town 04:13
GHOST TOWN lyrics: Stephan LaCasse I fell off the track Right off the rails I went right back To dusty trails I can’t hold it back One day we’ll laugh Some say this happiness should be for sale This doesn’t feel like home Cause I feel like a ghost I feel heaven weighing down on me I missed out on luck I missed out on rage I never had a chance To turn the page I can’t hold it back I can’t hold it together One day we’ll laugh Whenever This doesn’t feel like home Cause I feel like a ghost I feel heaven weighing down on me Will this feel like home Cause it feels like we’re close I feel heaven weighing down on me
Casanova 03:25
CASANOVA Lyrics: Stephan LaCasse Your Casanova got his one-night-stand but Ain’t got a friend to lend Looks like you found someone But lost yourself along the way We used to sneak away and do our thing We used to talk about everything We knew we had something More than love could bring I went on to make my noise You and your girls were the talk of all the boys It’s hard to understand How once before we were friends Still hurts to see you messing around But it’s not like under my feet there’s ground There’s lost and there’s found And there’s comfort in a sound You called me tonight And you cried and cried And you begged me to sing you a lullabye You called me tonight You were a little high You were feeling pushed aside And out of pride
SECONDS AT A TIME lyrics: Stephan LaCasse She’s got a lot to lose And none to win She’s got emerald eyes And porcelain skin She’s the life of the club A flame in the night She’s the girl backstage The cause of the fight She fooled us all And she’ll fool us all again She’s in love Seconds at a time Nowhere else to hide Twinkle in her eye She’s in love Seconds at a time Bet you dollar to a dime She’s not herself tonight


'Comfort In A Sound' was recorded in London, Ontario, Canada at EMac Studios by the amazing Matt Grady. Recorded in February 2010 during a crazy snowstorm and the Winter Olympics' Gold Medal hockey game between Canada and the US. The first night was very productive and lots was accomplished, then Matt had a party at his house that was tons of fun, so the next day in the studio was mellow, still productive and had a tad of extra 'character'. It was so cool watching Canada win the gold medal in between vocal takes and tracking guitars! In general, The Clearing is a mellow, mild-mannered and fun-loving duo. Recording these songs was a great experience. The fancy posed photos in the liner notes were taken by Scott Lennon at his loft-studio just down the road from where The Clearing lived and rehearsed in west Toronto. His puppy, Reilly seemed to like us because he kept coming into the shot to hang out, so we went with it, because he's just so darned cute.
