Biography

Introducing Jace Patkai, a 20 year old from Alliston, Prince Edward Island, Canada's smallest east coast province. Jace's passion for music came naturally, growing up with kitchen parties where his mother and his grandmother, both professional entertainers, would lead the ballads backed by fiddles, guitars, pianos and whatever else was available. Jace first started playing piano, then switched to guitar, and began writing songs. His first exposure to a large audience was when he suggested to school officials that he would like to perform a song he wrote for his high school graduation. He performed this song at the ceremony, and received a standing ovation. After that performance, Jace found himself taking his guitar to gatherings of friends, at concerts, and other events where he was able to sing his original songs to very receptive audiences. After graduating in 2007, Jace embarked on an overseas adventure as an Exchange Student to Denmark. Upon his return home in June, 2008 he continued to expand his musical
audience and opportunities by lunching his first CD, “ Bing Bang Bong”, created Gordon Belsher, producer GUERNSEY COVE PARLOUR PRODUCTIONS.

Lyrics

Not Like the Wind

Written By: Jace Patkai

Everybody sees it, all the talks are breaking down
Everybody knows it so everybody shows it by not sticking around
I can’t help but feel that this happens everyday
That I’m running out of time and I’m not fine that I’m in my own way

And I’ve been to all my long time friends, and family for help
But I know eventually that I can only be free if I learn to help myself
And I’ve done wrong and I’ve apologized many times
But no matter how I try, not a day goes by where I can put this all behind

No, please, Don’t through me in the rain again
I’m not like the wind, I can’t blow back in again
And you may touch me but I’ll never be the same again
No, I’m not like the wind, I can’t blow back in again

She took me dancing and she took my living
She took me dancing and she took my living

It seems to me that I ‘m just a little bit confused
Cause I don’t wanna quit, as I see fit I hate my self-abuse
But who really cares what I choose to do
In spite of everything I’ve done, I never wanted to hurt you

No, please, Don’t through me in the rain again
I’m not like the wind, I can’t blow back in again
And you may touch me but I’ll never be the same again
No, I’m not like the wind, I can’t blow back in again

She took me dancing and she took my living
She took me dancing and she took my living

No, please, Don’t through me in the rain again
I’m not like the wind, I can’t blow back in again
And you may touch me but I’ll never be the same again
No, I’m not like the wind, I can’t blow back in again

Don’t you go (X8)
Don’t you go away
