lyrics

Woke up with my head buried in the snow
and all you dark-skinned women, where do you all go
when there's nothing left of summer but an ocean's breeze
it's 10 below zero, but 30 more until we freeze

The dust blows through the prairies like a mad man on the run
He thinks he feels at home until he looks at what he's done
He's setting sails on nothing and hoping he's coming back,
He's got nothing distracting from keeping him on track.

It's not like I was left out in the cold,
I was gonna make it big but I got too old
Well, the snow's up to my back, but my boots will stay on track
I'll hold it in my hand 'cause I'm a northern man

He gets up at 4:30 and he's on the ice at 6
He's not much of a lover, but he's magic with that stick
Now he's dropping out of school and getting by on luck
Well, you don't need too much luck when you're that good with the puck

It's not like I was left out in the cold,
I was gonna make it big but I got too old
Well, the snow's up to my back, but my boots will stay on track
I'll hold it in my hand 'cause I'm a northern man

With the forthcoming release of songs off the debut album, audiences will be familiarized with sounds stemming both from hard-hitting past projects such as Tusk Mountain, as well as a new softer side which has grown off of experience as a solo singer-songwriter. ... more
