Godfrey's music is catchy, harmonious, uplifting, and memorable.

Biography

“Godfrey has the ability to combine thought-provoking lyrics with melodic, simple, but catchy melodies with pleasant vocal."(CMW 2004)

This Toronto-born artist began performing on piano at the age of six, later leading to a passion for guitar, drums, bass, trombone, and violin. Godfrey would perform with GLIB for seven years performing all over Ontario, recording two demos, and one full-length album. Godfrey’s title track “Halfway” gained recognition through his performance at the Canadian Music Week Festival 2004, and the inclusion of the track on the festival’s compilation disc.

In 2003, Godfrey formed a new band called THIS, which he played with for six years. Through THIS, Godfrey gained more touring experience, namely during the 2008 Canadian Summer Tour with Sons of Butcher, consisting of 11 shows in 14 days. His six years with THIS were filled with continuous performances, recording two demos, an LP, a full-length album, and a deeper understanding of what life-on-the-road truly means.

Currently, Godfrey is performing around Toronto and in Ontario festivals. “Cut off the World" will be Godfrey’s most focused and mature album to date.

What we do or do not do in life shape the future.

Godfrey’s “Cut off the World” will include a re-recorded version of the track “Dreaming,” which was named One of the top five songs in the Universe (Songwriter Universe Contest) in 2009.

Lyrics

Halfway

Written By: Paul Godfrey

Halfway (Paul Godfrey

I, I feel like something’s missing
Tonight it’s cold, but you’re words keep me warm

If heaven goes away
Never be afraid
I’ll love you always
If heaven goes away
Never be afraid
I’ll meet you halfway

Clouds surround all loves lost souls
So we
We may see each other unless you are found

If heaven goes away
Never be afraid
I’ll love you always
If heaven goes away
Never be afraid
I’ll meet you halfway

Thursday night as I got home
I found some words that made me strong
I was so young by my heart beat
Now I can feel now I can see
That the light you said that I should find
Is the light in you that makes me shine
A reflection of love in time
I wave the sign
Wave the sign tonight

If heaven goes away
Never be afraid
I’ll love you always
If heaven goes away
Never be afraid
I’ll meet you halfway

Thursday night as I got home
I found some words that made me strong
I was so young by my heart beat
Now I can feel now I can see
That the light you said that I should find
Is the light in you that makes me shine
A reflection of love in time
Wave the sign
I wave the sign tonight

If heaven goes away

Broken

Written By: Paul Godfrey

Broken(Paul Godfrey)

Feel so incomplete
the phone ain`t ringing
Tomorrow i`ll cut out my eyes
So I can't see
the world we breathe in
let`s find an easy way to die

One day you`ll be me a lost love letter
that`s lost it`s meaning

Voices Scream and deafen everything surrounding me tonight
get out of my head
get out of my head

All I had it`s gone from my hands
from my hands
from my hands

I really wanted to feel
feel the love that's inside
you love inside was alive
but it was buried from mine
I really wanted to think
really needed to drink
but now something's happening
something's happening
something's happening to me

Dreaming

Written By: Paul Godfrey

Dreaming ( PAUL GODFREY)

Pick all the pieces up that you lost back there on the path
Put them together and see what you hold in your hands maybe destiny
Close your eyes can you feel this?
Take your time this moment

(CHORUS)
Dreaming of places unknown
Seeing your face makes me want to step forth
Onto a dock by a lake
Her voice starts to tremble she's got something to say
I love your voice
I love your face
this ain`t real and I awake

If forever never comes
Then you might as well light it up
If it's not today then does true love wait on the nights you wait too long?
you are not alone
you are not alone
you are not alone

The Rooftop

Written By: Paul Godfrey

The Rooftop: Paul Godfrey

We climb up top
lay down the blankets
you say it's cold
but I say I can take it
I missed missed missed your kiss
this morning
I missed Missed Missed this

I'm not feeling tired
of looking in your eyes
staying up all night
listen to the birds sing

Dark turns to light
cloud parting hour
pieces and shapes
but none perfect like ours

I missed missed missed your kiss
this morning
I missed missed missed this

All I want is here infront of me
infront of me

Every Morning

Written By: Paul Godfrey

Every Morning: Paul Godfrey

Two hearts one bed
meant every word I said
Your sweetness lies
Inside my mind all night

Every moment's precious precious precious

Every Morning I glow
Every Morning cause of you
And I never want to break apart
Together our pieces fit good

Three words express
the pounding in my chest
One kiss creates
sensations everywhere
Every moment's precious precious precious

Every Morning I glow
Every Morning cause of you
And I never want to break apart
Together our pieces fit good
Together our pieces fit good

Interstate of Love

Written By: Paul Godfrey

Interstate of Love: Paul Godfrey

There's a light
there where we are going
There are times that you never let em go
On this back seat I fall asleep
You and me and our interstate of love

As we role along this
interstate
I dream about her pretty face
All the moments leading up till
now
Every minute and every hour

A time of trust
Here you are
Hold tonight
and all we got
don't stop
on our interstate of love

There's a light
there where we are going
There are times that you never let em go
On this back seat I fall asleep
You and me and our interstate of love

Cut off the World

Written By: Paul Godfrey

Cut off the World: Paul Godfrey

Fever rising
The wind it screams as shadows freeze
Alone
I think
I'm alone

I cut off the world
Watch it drop inside
Away from the pain
For a little while

An angel sings to me
Through the night when things ain't right
Alone
I think
When I'm alone

I cut off the world
Watch it drop inside
Away from the pain
For a little awhile
Will I cut off the world
Hold you close inside
Remember a time
When you were mine
when you were mine
when you were mine
you're mine
you're mine

Will I cut off the world
Watch it drop inside
Away from the pain
for a little while
Will I cut off the world
Watch it drop inside
Away from the pain
for a little while
for a little while
for a little while
little while
little while

Will I cut off the world

For a little while
For a little while
