Biography

Paul Filek is a Canadian singer songwriter from Kamloops, BC who's released three albums since 2006 with producer Henry Small (formerly of the band Prism) and most recently a 2012 five song EP, Paper Planes and Spare Change, produced by Jeff Dawson (Daniel Powter, State of Shock, The Dudes). One thing that's certain is that Paul's confident, accomplished songwriting are commercial in their appeal, as evidenced by his charting success on Canadian radio. His smooth and effortless, funky vocals and heart-on-the-sleeve lyrics are infectiously hard to deny. His feel good songs fit perfectly on top forty radio, sandwiched between songs of similar style by Maroon 5 and Train. Paul made the decision to pursue music professionally after an interesting story unraveled on his 23rd birthday, which led him to work with a local producer and music industry mentor. If you want to hear a good piece of folklore, just ask Paul about the night he was performing in a small club when some guy claiming to be John Mellencamp wandered in and asked if he could hop on stage to play a few tunes. Word travels fast in a small town. The following morning Paul was invited to a local radio station to share the story of his bizarre encounter. During that visit Paul ended up playing one of his songs on-air and the DJ was so impressed by his song, performance and charisma that the two soon formed a production relationship together, which resulted in the release of Filek's first three albums. In 2013 Paul Filek is focusing on his full time music career more intently than ever. With a finely crafted new EP under his arm and a full tank of gas, Paul delivers fun and engaging live performances with a sense of humor and storytelling that his fans can't resist.  For more information please visit Paul Filek online at - See more at: http://paulfilek.com

Woke up this morning with the worst damn headache of my life
Had a late one last night, but the memories make it alright
Roll myself right outta bed to find something for my head
Take it slow with a cup a ‘joe’ think a the stupid things I said

I'm glad you’re here......

On Sunday, Sunday
I just wanna be with you
On Sunday, Sunday
We can make our dreams come true
I don't care 'bout Monday
Monday comes and I say Baby, every days a Sunday with you

Walk downtown look around have a big breakfast with our friends
You and I could catch a show I don’t want this day to end
Get tipsy on a bottle of wine and watch the sunset in the park
Kiss me slow don’t ever let go, its you who’s won my heart

I’m glad you’re here….

On Sunday, Sunday
I just wanna be with you
On Sunday, Sunday
We can make our dreams come true
I don't care 'bout Monday
Monday comes and I say Baby, every days a Sunday with you

I can’t wait till when
We do this all again.

On Sunday, Sunday
I just wanna be with you
On Sunday, Sunday
We can make our dreams come true
I don't care 'bout Monday
Monday comes and I say Baby, every days a Sunday with you

Repeat and fade

Love Is Blind

Written By: Paul Filek

I’ve seen her naked and I’ve seen her clothed
I’ve seen her smiling down from her head down to her toes
I’ve seen her frivolous and I’ve seen her oh so shy
I’ve seen her melt me with that twinkle in her eyes
I’ve seen her happy, I’ve seen her sad, I’ve seen her jealous but id hate to see her mad

She’s got screws loose, she’s kinda insane
Toys with your heart then she’ll mess with your brain
High heels smell of her perfume
I’ve got my hands tied I’m feeling confined backs to the wall and I’m doing time
Goosebumps whenever she’s on my mind

I’ve seen manipulate to get just what she needs
And I’ve seen her begging, dropping right down to her knees
I’ve seen her charging living large on shopping sprees
I’ve seen her break a heart with that fire that she breathes

She’s got screws loose, she’s kinda insane
Toys with your heart then she’ll mess with your brain
High heels smell of her perfume
I’ve got my hands tied I’m feeling confined backs to the wall and I’m doing time
Goosebumps whenever she’s on my mind

Turning circles my head is spinning round
I’m feeling nauseous from these emotions I have found
I can’t believe, you could ever do this to me
I’m outta my mind I’m going crazy

Steal A Kiss

Written By: Paul Filek

Steal a kiss

Coulda told you at the high school dance
Always wish I woulda taken a chance
You used to sit beside me in class
But I never had the guts to ask
Ten years is quite a while
I can still remember your smile
I let you slip away
=
You are the most beautiful thing I’ve seen in a life time
I have to admit you’re my favourite pastime oh oh oh
I’ve waited so long to tell you like it is
So baby, let me steal a kiss

Can’t believe after so much time
I’d see you standing in this line
Could never find the words before
Too you and insecure
Don’t wanna make the same mistake
Can I pick you up at eight
I wont let you slip away

I can’t afford to let you walk out of my life
Won’t let you leave me with another sleepless night
No more wasting time

Paper Planes (Fly Away)

Written By: Paul Filek,Lonny Eagleton,Kyle Richardson, Kyle Richardson

Paper plane

Don’t you know you’re beautiful, its not hard to see
How can I be rational when its you I need
Know what I have to say
Just need to find a way
To be with you today

I want to kiss you every day
Float around on a paper plane
I’ll take you anywhere you choose
Let’s fly away

Can’t you see us on a beach, sand between our toes
Icy streets, rosey cheeks walking through the snow
Come on take my hand
Let me be your man
You can be my girl, we’ll see the world

**
lets fly away together
Fly away tonight
You will not regret it if you open up your heart and fly away
AWAY

Falling For You

Written By: Paul Filek

Although I’ve never met you and I may never will
I still want to hold you hug you have you make all your time stand still
I wanna walk with you on a beach and hold your hand under the stars
I wanna caress your body and hold you tight inside of my arms
My fingers are crossed
They say that love don’t cost a thing
You’re my world, my everything

I’ve got no more reasons and no more lies
My hearts wide open with love inside
My arms held out and my head up high
All these thoughts of you help me get by
Well its true, I’m falling for you

Although you’re never at my side you’ve never ever left my mind
They say the heart grows fonder and that love is blind
Oh yes I’ve made my mistakes but I don’t regret my past
And I’m willing to give mine up If you’re willing to give us a chance
My fingers are crossed
They say that love don’t cost a thing
You’re my world, my everything

I’ve got no more reasons and no more lies
My hearts wide open with love inside
My arms held out and my head up high
All these thoughts of you help me get by
Well its true, I’m falling for you

Ive been down this path before
I’ve had my heart torn out and bleeding on the floor
I cant take this babe Im need so much more
Well I need more

I’ve got no more reasons and no more lies
My hearts wide open with love inside
My arms held out and my head up high
All these thoughts of you help me get by
Well its true, I’m falling for you
