This song is about me in a melancholy state, pleading to be awakened so i could save my relationship.

 

Intro I

Oh, I, Oh

Verse 1

I keep dreaming,

I keep waking up,

Hard to believe

I have given up.

You're always here,

It seems to haunt me,

Will you take me,

Or will you let me sleep?

Sleep.

Chorus 1

Shake me one more time.

Shake me one last time.

Take me away this time.

Maybe I'll be fine. Fine.

Verse 2

I cannot stand,

This puddle is deep,

Help me to swim,

So I don't fall asleep.

You're always here,

It seems to haunt me,

Will you wake me?

Or will you let me sleep?

Sleep.

Chorus 2

Shake me one more time.

Shake me one last time.

Make me stay this time.

Wake me, I'll be fine.

Fine.

Fine.

Fine.

Fine.

This song is about me being lost, trying to find my way. But, now i have found the way and want to get back what I have lost. - Alec Berard

 

Verse 1

You I keep calling, keep falling.

I don't know where to go.

You I keep calling, still fighting for what i know is true.

Pre Chorus

I'm slowly turning up.

I can see the sun.

This is how i made it through and how I'll make it up.

Chorus

All i want to do is make amends.

Maybe we can try to be friends.

I won't make you feel like that again.

You told me this is not the end.

Bridge

Ooohoo, Ooohoo


Verse 2

You, I'm still waiting.

I'm sailing, now i know where to go.

You I keep calling and fighting through all that is blue.


Pre Chorus

I'm slowly turning up.

I can see the sun.

This is how I made it through and how I'll make it up.


Chorus

All I want to do is make amends.

Maybe we can try to be friends.

I won't make you feel like that again.

You told me this is not the end.


Outro

Ooohoo, Ooohoo x2

Run- Written by Alec Berard and Jason Mackie.

This song is about coming to terms with the love of my life running away. But always here for her to come back too.

 

Verse 1 
I woke up next to you, you told me that you're done.
I couldn't make you stay, so I let you run.
Run, run, run.
I know you're done, but you'll always be with me.
Run, run, run
I know your gone, but you'll always be with me.

 

Chorus
Run.
Run on back, back to me.
Run.
Come on back cause im alone.
Run.
Run on back, back to me.
Run.
Come on back cause I'm alone. Alone.

 

Verse 2
You told me a couple years, that you need to run.
I didn't give up on you and many years have gone.
Run, run, run.
I know you're done.
But you'll always be with me.
Run, run, run.
I know you're gone.
But you'll always be with me.
Run.
Run on back, back to me.
Run.
Come on back cause I'm alone..
Run. Run on back, back to me.
Run.
Come on back cause im alone. Alone.

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.
