This is a sweet song, the lyrics are words that I think anyone would love have sung to them in sincerity of intention, a hope of love rekindled.  Lovers across the ages recognize that "Long-Smile" - Yvonne-Cher Skye

Long-Smile-  Written by Jason Mackie and Alec Berard.
This song is a harmony of the two of us. It is about a broken friendship that we would like to be rekindled. - Alec Berard

Verse 1
I'm all alone
and I wanna have you by my side.
An open door
where you make the music more alive.
I'm on the bus going home
and its on my mind.
So many songs
and so many friends left behind.

Chorus 1
Lullabies gone wrong.
We could pass along.
Maybe it's been too long.
Maybe one more song. 

Verse 2
I'm all alone
and i thought i had you by my side.
Answer the phone,
maybe we could have a drink one night.
I won't ask you
to talk about what broke our life.
We can leave
before laughs turn to long smiles.

Chorus 2
Lullabies gone wrong.
We could pass along.
Maybe it's been too long.
Maybe one more song.
Wish i could pretend that i did not care.
Your friendship was rare.
You've got the gift to share.

Verse 3
I'm all alone
and i thought i had you by my side.
Answer the phone
maybe we could have a drink one night.
I won't ask you
to talk about what broke our life.
And we can leave
before laughs turn to long smiles.

Editorial Note: I have known Alec off and on for most of his life.  I am privileged to know him again after he has weathered one of the most difficult storms in his life. His willingness to explore his creative self and allow us along for the ride as he interprets who he is, and who can be is a gift that we all can appreciate. It is by sharing his songs and his talents, that we hope that others can see the changes that they too can cause in a hopeless situation. - Yvonne-Cher Skye


Alec: This song is about struggle with addiction, questioning myself and being blinded. Ultimately realizing what was best for me and questioning if it will ever return.

 Verse 1
All i want to feel is the rain,
falling on my pain.
Everyday seems the same.
I cant wash away this stain.
You know i cant complain when you take away today
and i throw it all away.

Pre Chorus
Can i survive another day stuck in time?
Can i survive all alone? 

Chorus
Can you dream like i can?
Can you see me where i am?
Will you face me again?
Will you chase me in the end?

Bridge
End, 
End. 
End, 
End. 
Verse 2 
All I saw last was your face.
It felt like such a waste.
But it made me want to chase
and do all that it will take.
I remember such a place,
all the way in outerspace
and I threw it all away.

Here Now- Written by Alec Berard and Jason Mackie.

 

Listen Here!

Soundcloud

This song is about my trials and tribulations of self development. How I fell far away from who I know I am. Losing a very important love. Asking questions that have been left unanswered and accepting that she is gone, while relaying the message that I am back to who I am.

 

Verse 1 

All the pain

I've felt these years,

it wont seem to disappear.

I cant you go my dear.

Can you save me from my fears?

I cant look into the mirror,

how can you see me so clear?

Where have you been my dear?

Songs to tell you that I'm here.

 

Chorus

You're gone

i hope that you're are okay.

All alone when you are away.

Dont go

I'm coming back to say,

I wont treat you

that way again.

 

Verse 2

It's been so loud

all around,

you were my calming sound.

I was crawling

on the ground,

losing sight

of what i found.

Here i am came up from down.

I dont want to leave this town.

Can i show you all around?

Song to say

that I'm here now.

 

Chorus 

You're gone

I hope that you're okay.

All alone when you are away.

Dont go I'm coming back to say,

I wont treat you that way again.

This song is about a girl getting the best of your mind and not having control of the tempations of which a unhealthy relationship can consume of you.

 

Verse 1

I never wanted to worry

with you in the back of my head.

Lately I've been in a hurry

to pack up and leave before you crash my dreams,

with no invitation. And find the seems where it all starts to fray.

 

Chorus

Wake me up and please hurry,

before beautiful becomes dirty.

She'll find my peace of mind,

that piece i was saving.

Ohhh ohhh.

 

Verse 2

All of this is so heavy.

The candle burns at both ends.

It weighs me down unsteady.

I'm lost at sea and she waves to me

from the only island that might save me, but I just drift away.

 

Chorus

Wake me up and please hurry.

Before beautiful becomes dirty.

She'll find my peace of mind,

that piece i was saving.

Ohhh ohhh.

This is the first track from the very talented and HOT Alec Berard. Check him out on soundcloud and the links below. His deep and soulful lyrics reflect a life lived and the realization of the lessons learned.

Listen to the song here: Stripped- Written by Alec Berard and Jason Mackie.

 

It was originally a poem. One day i was messing around with the guitar and looking at the first 2 lines of the verse and wrote the first melody for it. Jason really liked the feel of where I was going with it. He grabbed the guitar and we wrote it line by line together. Its about me struggling with temptation and how it ruined something special in my life and now i have overcome it and how that something special will always follow me.

 

Lyrics

Verse 1

I'm stripped down. I've lost my stride. You are all that i want. Give me a bite, but not the taste. I'm tired of this fight, im weak and worn from the waste.

 

Chorus 1

Now I've fallen away, nothing more to say. It's never the same. Take away the pain. I should have ran away, maybe you would have stayed.

 

Verse 2

You never seem to disappear, its always the same strife. You're all i see, bring me back to life. If you don't agree, just have trust in me.

 

Chorus 2

Now you've fallen away. I have more to say. Its never the same. Take away the pain. I had to run away, hope you come back to stay.

 

Bridge

Follow me through my darkest of days. I fall so short the hardest of ways.

 

Verse 3

You wanted to believe in me. I couldn't trust myself. I wish you would take me off the shelf. I won't leave a stain. I was sick, I'm so ashamed.

 

Chorus 3

Now I'm here to stay. I have more to say. It's never the same. Take away the pain. You had to run away. Hope you come back to stay.
