lyrics

"Canadian Idyl" A song about Canada and its people.

It's beautiful,
Incredible,
Utterly unforgettable.
Common miracles happening every day.
Victoria,
To St. Johns -
Sing a song for your long lost by-gones.
Spread the word our baby is on his way.
Half way home just outside of Thunder Bay.

I confess - I'm afraid.
Can't continue with this mess we've made.
But I shouldn't be this mad.
Wanting for a life you had.

In kind I bring.
Second verse, this song we sing and sing and sing.
I find it all at the county mall.
...We're just so small.

I confess I have a goal.
But if I change your mind it doesn't save my soul.

It's beautiful,
Incredible,
Utterly unforgettable.
Common miracles happening every day.
Victoria,
To St. Johns -
Sing a song for your long lost by-gones.
Spread the word our baby is on his way.
Half way home just outside of Thunder Bay.
