Gabriel Garcia Because only Mary and Leonard Cohen hit my heart this hard, that's why i love this album. Favorite track: Already Gone.

The Hours by Mary Milne All across the faded lines the cart men came fed us lies and lullabyes and cups filled up with rain and now you're half out on the highway your quarter in the wind and you're still holding out for better you're still holding out for him and we dream in broke down towers get locked out in the cold and it funny how these are the hours you want back when you get old well there ain't one word I know of to make a lover stay and come on Ruth, sometimes the truth just gets in the way and your coroner has called it now you're cold as tin and whatever side you land on there's nothing left to win and we dream in brokedown towers get locked out in the cold ain't it funny how these are the hours you want back when you get old

The Eskimo Song Outside a car door slams and somebody flips their lid and i can't ell the difference between the corporal and the kid we're all acting like its Easter and our hearts the thing we hid i always thought you'd find mine, but i guess you never did oh eskimo, eskimo take me where you'll go and lay me down beneath your sheet of freshly fallen snow where the stars are the only silver and the suns the only gold and every breath you take hangs like a trophy in the cold well i don't need the green grass and i don't need the trees all they do is stand there and sway when there's a breeze and if there ain't no flowers then i guess there'll be no bees and if you can't lock an igloo you never have to find your keys and eskimo eskimo (....) Well once somebody told me that my head was filled with rags me i think its unpaid bills and hay and plastic bags and looking in the mirror, time and trashy mags and that old black dog i once had with the tail that never wagged oh eskimo eskimo (...) Well double-dutch, don't touch, ain't much left to feel down at the dollarama things are going for a steal and time she just keeps running on her little plastic wheel so buy one more thing you don't need for the price of someones meal and eskimo eskimo...
