With his electric bass or guitar in hand, Chris LeBlanc always puts on an electrifying live show. He's had the pleasure of sharing the stage with many great Canadian and U.S. artists ranging from Julian Austin to Charlie Pride.

It doesn’t stop there! Chris recently got together with award-winning singer, songwriter, producer and friend Steve Fox to begin working on his sophomore album. They wrote five incredible songs together, one of which was pitched and is currently being considered by super-group Rascal Flatts. (Come on boys, record that song!) Upon returning home from Nashville in October, Chris had finished recording six fresh new songs all produced by Steve.

Lyrics

Arrest Me

Written By: Chris LeBlanc

I know that Ive been bad
And that your gonna catch me
There ain't no doubt about that girl
I want you to arrest me

I might try to run
Oh how exciting might that be
It would be so much fun baby
I want you to arrest me

I want you to arrest me
Babe, you look so sexy
With that gun on your hip
And that shiny badge on your chest

Your hair in a ponytail
Dressed in your police detail
Oh girl, what you do to me
Oh baby, I want you to arrest me

Put your handcuffs on me
And throw me in your car
Drive out to the country
Near Mr. Tucker's farm

Let's park down by the lake
Where its nice and dark
Make love to me darling underneath the starts
Oh baby, I want you to arrest me

I want you to arrest me
Babe, you look so sexy
With that gun on your hip
And that shiny badge on your chest

Your hair in a ponytail
Dressed in your police detail
Oh girl, what you do to me
Oh baby, I want you to arrest me

I want you to arrest me
Babe, you look so sexy
With that gun on your hip
And that shiney badge on your chest

Your hair in a ponytail
Dressed in your police detail
Oh girl, what you do to me
Oh baby, I want you to arrest me

And Then Some

Written By: Dan Demay

I shook my head when he walked up
I thought he wanted a couple bucks
In those ragged clothes and hair down to his shoulders
But he said I bet you’re not even 30 yet
And you hang your head like your life is almost over
I said old man leave me alone I just got laid off
Besides when’s the last time you even had a job

He said it was ‘68 I was about your age in a chopper over Hanoi
We got shot down and even now I’m afraid to sleep at night
After 5 long years in a bamboo cage the army calls you crazy
Takes your wings away
So I know where you’re coming from
I’ve been there and then some

I said old man I’ll give you that
I’ve never had it quite that bad
But that job I lost ain’t all that there is to it
3 weeks ago my wife moved out
I’d just gotten home from being outa town
And you don’t know what that’s like till you been through it
I said imagine how it feels to hear she found someone
And then I ask him when’s the last time you lost a love

He said when that C-130 touched the earth on that runway out in dover
I was coming home with medals on, but she wasn’t in the crowd
‘Cause when you’re MIA 2000 days
She thinks your dead and your best friend take your place
So I know where you’re coming from
I’ve been there and some

That old man made me realize you should never give up hope
He got there in the nick of time with that story that he told
‘Cause it saved my life
I was gonna end it all that night

Now it’s been 3 years and that’s why I’m here
I don’t get paid I’m a volunteer
And I’m living proof that you can get your life together
So don’t hang up that phone, it ain’t worth it son
Do us both a favor and put down that gun
“Cause I know where you’re coming from
I’ve been there and then some
I’ve been there and then some
