about

PIECES OF YOUR PAST
April 8, 2014

Recorded with renowned producer Dave Draves (Kathleen Edwards, Julie Doiron, Jim Bryson) the result is a charming, beautiful and honest folk/pop record addressing all themes of life in love. At the heart of the album is a story of a love that had to end despite knowing the pain it would cause. In the end, the little things that add up when time is spent between two people, end up becoming little fragments of memories: pieces of your past.

Laurent recorded Pieces of Your Past live to tape in the studio alongside his talented backing band (Jamie Kronick, Drums, Phil Charbonneau, Bass) completing the majority of the album in a single day. A rare thing in today’s music scene, the live recording setting allowed for more feeling, and character to shine through Laurent’s accomplished songwriting.

Anchored by Laurent’s melodic and powerful vocal style, the feelings, sounds and personality of Pieces of Your Past are what make it an undeniably exciting record.

Track Name: Never That Far Away
Never That Far Away by Laurent Bourque

Light my fire, but don’t hurt me
Shed some covers and lie here with me
I’ve been wandering alone late at night
Did I dream you up? Or are you really here?
I can’t tell at all

Im sleeping on the foot of my bed
And it feels like I'm beached on a far away land
Like the ones that I dream of and the ones that you wanted
Are never that far away
Track Name: You Are
You Are by Laurent Bourque

Take apart the pieces of your past
‘Cause it just don’t matter anymore
You were made for me
You are
You were made for me
You are

Pick me up and drive around all night
And give me a kiss at every red light
Just don’t lie to me
Don’t lie
Just don’t lie to me
Don’t lie
Track Name: Memories
Memories by Laurent Bourque

Keep it to yourself you know it all too well
That once in a while I fight until I hold my heart on the line
Oh, every time now

Here’s to all the memories you made for me

My heart’s not on my sleeve
its always right between you and I
and every now and then you get so uptight
but we had something good, oh take it easier

Here’s to all the memories you made for me
Track Name: Nothing Ever Comes Out Right
Nothing Ever Comes Out Right by Laurent Bourque

Counting down the days until I leave
Weeks and months and years have been wasted here
Seas are like the daybreak, if you wait for them they are nothing
But a passing through time, like thoughts in your mind
And you’ll think about why we are all here

At least I get over it when nothing ever comes out right

Writing off the times that you just it slip
I guess it wasn’t as easy as it sounds dear
Seas are like the daybreak, if you wait for them they are nothing
But a passing through time, like thoughts in your mind
And you’ll think about why we are all here

At least I get over it when nothing ever comes out right
Track Name: All The Things
All The Things by Laurent Bourque

Look outside, there's the world
Open your door and give it a whirl.
Fast asleep next to me,
Just settle down, I’ll let you in for now

How are you doing dear?
After all,
I’m the one that cared for you
Through all the things you put me through

And all the memories that first snow brings
Will you cry or will you sing?
Fast asleep next to me
Just settle down ill let you in for now

How are you doing dear?
After all,
I’m the one that cared for you
Through all the things you put me through
Track Name: Awake
Awake by Laurent Bourque

For once in your life do as I do
And make every one you know think your right.
I'd love to help you but I don’t know,
Just say everything that’s on your mind

So what if the lies I told you were all I knew?
Then I’d go back and make everything alright

Keep in touch, don’t let me go
I’d love you all the same even if your not mine

So what if the lies I told you were all I knew?
Then I’d go back and make everything alright

That’s how you know it don’t you?
The places that I’ve never seen
And when you go home
You’d always be that light that keeps me
Awake
Track Name: Call My Name
Call My Name by Laurent Bourque

Call my name and bring me back to bed
All my teeth are coming out
And all these noises I hear at night
They don’t ever stop

But when I’ve given the love I have
I always come back with nothing left

Wash my feet and place your hand
On my chest so I can breath

The days are way too long
When all I really want is this.
And when the days start at night
And everything you want is right there
In front of you for now but you
can never seem to hold on to it
That place across the pond where you can
Settle down and just do nothing

So call my name so I can go
Back to bed and wish that you were here.
Track Name: The Other Side
The Other Side by Laurent Bourque

Reaching out for the ones that need you
To always hold you close.
Just keep in mind that they’ll always let you down

What we were once was great but I know
That our light is burning out
'Cause you don’t know where we’ve been
and where we're going now

It doesn’t matter if it feels right now.
Doesn’t matter if the stars align now.
All I want is to see through my fears,
So I can know what's on the other side

Sail away to the places we've made,
But you’ll never find me there
'Cause I swear right now that I’ll always let you down

It doesn’t matter if it feels right now.
Doesn’t matter if the stars align now.
All I want is to see through my fears,
So I can know what's on the other side

I want to know what's on the other side
Track Name: Starry Eyed
Starry Eyed by Laurent Bourque

Starry eyed, when will you realize that you are home
And that’s what matters most.
A young boy played you to your core and made you cry.
Should have caught him on every lie

How can you not see me for what I am?
I've laid it out so clearly, don’t pretend.
Its really all in how they walk

Stubborn love, what do you dream late at night?
Don’t you try and pick a fight
And why is it that every time I quit
You help me fall right back into it all

How can you not see me for what I am?
I've laid it out so clearly, don’t pretend.
Its really all in how they walk,
Ain't it dear?
