Tons of gut-wrenching, inspired by divorce but made for everyday lyrics wrapped in a straightforward yet beckoning guitar smothered in harmonica.....yum!

Biography

Uncle Alice has been making music and entertaining whoever in whatever fashion for many years, writing & recording songs, playing gigs, as both front & sideman Bassist/Guitarist/Singer in various bands-A lot of his original material are songs that he felt have appeal but didn't fit the "genre"of the various bands he played in. So once again, with help from drummer Mad Dog Mason, Uncle Alice created his latest record from the ground up, playing all the instruments, recording,mixing and editing at his studio Silverbeach Sound in North Bay,with Peetr Nickle engineering. Look for more Uncle Alice in the years to come-enjoy!

Lyrics

pain

Written By: Uncle ALice

Do you beleive in silly things like destiny
How it all went wrong?
didn't want to let you slip away from me
but you were already gone

Hold onto the day when it will be OK
and all the dust is gone
there's so much that I could never say
and so much left undone
I just want to tell you that you're beautiful
you crushed me to my core
there has got to be a better place for you
then I could could ever go

only the bitterness remains
I beleive in pain

I see a perfect angel over me
and I don't know if it's good
Heaven's gate is open wide to welcome me
and I don't think that I should

They wonder why I walked away
I beleive in pain

Pain-give me strength give me meaning
Pain- give me reason for breathing
Pain-give me som'n to hold on to
Pain

paradise

Written By: uncle alice

Paradise

can you really see the damage done
only time has won only time remains
you really thought that you could win
change will get you in the end
only change remains

take a last look at paradise
the pictures on your walls
scream out your secret name
little boots and empty bottles
can't bring shame enough to change

can you smell the end of days
cooking in your microwave stirring up your calm
the bitter silence finally triumphs
like the dropping of a bomb

take a last look at paradise
cities in the sky
beneath the poisoned waves
life is choking on the sacred flame
that turns our rubber wings

take a last look at paradise

solo

take a last look at paradise
the drawings on your fridge
the monkey on your back
the lonely thing about the open road
is there's no turning back

take a last look at paradise
