about

Joe Hehir Cornwall, Ontario

I've been writing songs all of my life and taught myself to play piano, guitar, trumpet and harmonica. I used to think that music happened because of the instrument I played mainly the piano. Then I realized it all just comes from my head and it doesn't matter what instrument you play. You can be a virtuoso silver spoon player and not even know it. Just pick up some spoons and give it a try ... more

Track Name: Give along the way
You ended up somewhere sometime ago
or maybe it was your voice you had to know
and there you were with a clever grin
or maybe it was your life just getting in
and there you were just feeling the crowd
or maybe
it was your voice just getting loud
you would move and weave and find a friend
or maybe
sometimes its when you let them in
oh baby
gonna give gonna give gonna give along the way
oh baby
gonna give gonna give gonna give along the way
you chose who you were when you were just a kid
now maybe
you're doing something else and you have it hid
you still do what you do
cause you still do it
or maybe
its just you life and there's nothing more to it
oh baby
gonna give gonna give gonna give along the way
oh baby
gonna give gonna give gonna give along the way
you get what you need
from the local rustic bar
oh baby you're always happy where you are
oh baby
gonna give gonna give gonna give along the way
oh baby
gonna give gonna give gonna give along the way
Track Name: You Are
The day I let myself be loved
sweet to my hurting life
felt a comforting
and so i let myself give love
warm the blue eyes
keeps my spirits up
you are a complicated person
who's not who doesn't have it difficult
and so you want a little peace and happiness
who doesn't have just what they want
and so your problem
doesn't get you anywhere
if you're troubled then don't you despair
you are a perfect fit for someone
yes you are yes you are
you are a suspect of interest
who's not
who's asking anyway
and so you need
your calm at less cost
you need you need the best defense
and so you're crumbling
because you do it on your own
you can't remember when you were not alone
you are a perfect fit for someone
yes you are yes you are
and if your courage is all that you can afford
go on and spend it
don't leave it at the door
you are a perfect fit for someone
yes you are
yes you are
yes you are
yes you are
Track Name: Raising Hell
I'm optimistic came through the door today
sold out my business then went outside to play
caught me a rainbow
and called it my own
walked right past some bad luck
and laughed the way home
well I've been looking for a good way
to get my life around
I'm getting used to waking up
and not letting my right self down
I know good people
and they keep me real
I'm not talking bout a right or wrong way
but a way that I feel
I laugh a lot more at myself
cause every day is something else
it's easier to look at things that don't make sense
for everything
can seem real dark if you choose to see it all that way
and maybe a smile is what I need
to keep me going to keep me free
just laugh a lot and kid myself
and get my kicks from raising hell
my friends are there to rescue me
when I get in bad company
well I was looking for the right time
to get myself in line
always thought that it should feel right
for anything to ease my mind
but the winter casts a cloud
on some I guess
only makes me tired might as well give it a rest
you know
you know
you know
I laugh a lot more at myself
cause every day is something else
it's easier to look at things that don't make sense
for everything
can seem real dark if you choose to see it all that way
and maybe a yes is what I need
like nothing else
to cut it clean
says a lot with just one word
like everything that you deserve
and yes you are a friend to me
and yes we're good oh yes indeed
you know
you know
you know
yes you know
you're not lost
no you're not lost
yes you know
I'm optimistic came through the door today
sold out my business then went outside to play
caught me a rainbow
and called it my own
walked right past some bad luck
and laughed the way home
