about

". it’s small, quiet, and powerful
it brings us closer than before
far beyond the ashes, tears, and smoke
there is always Hope."
This is the 4th year that I have participated in RPM challenge. Within 28 days, this music was written & recorded.
The month was full of gigs, trips to Victoria, Olympic dreams & memories. I felt that I worked harder on this album than any other. It is the most personal album that I have released thus far. I hope that you will enjoy.

Track Name: True
You were sitting in the bar
and in your eyes were the stars
that my little boar sailed its way to
And your smile was a jar
with little hopes and little jokes
buzzing like the fireflies in June do

And I gently took your hand
in the hopes you'd understand
that this was something strong I was drawn to
And you came away with me
and got down on bended knee
And you told me that your heart was true,
that your love was true.

Many months and little dreams
With Blake and Whitman at the seams
Unfolding was a story that I once knew
Of a girl who ran around
Chasing, oh, that dark horse down
Tears would fall like a candle burn through

And at times she'd let him run
Saying go on have your fun
Soon you'll be home asking to forgive you
My world a grain of sand,
you held my innocence in your hand
but there's only so much I can go through
Oh, my love was true

I saw him the other day
10 years had slipped away
And he told me I was lookin' so fine
He said," you haven't changed a hair."
'Nor have you.' I sat and stared
In the eyes that I loved beyond time

"Look I'm sorry for the past,
you understand we couldn't last.
But you were something I should have valued."
And I smiled and looked away
Saying 'Hey, that's okay.
But I hope in the end she was true.'
That her love was true.
Track Name: Orion
In December we were married on a wooden ship in the woods
In December day dreams flurried with a magic kiss from above
In December life seems hurried but I’d never know it with you
In December life’s a journey with the starlight dancing above
And my world at peace and with love

Orion’s high in the sky
Chase his arrow, we’ll fly
Stars reflect in your eyes
As heaven sighs…

In December life is sunshine though the sky may seem very gray
In December wishes blossom through the snow and shortness of day
In December it’s just me and you though the house is family full
In December there are colours for I thought the prairies had none
And you point each one out one by one

Orion’s high in the sky
Chase his arrow, we’ll fly
Stars reflect in your eyes
As heaven sighs…

In December we were married on a wooden ship in the woods
In December day dreams flurried with a magic kiss from above
And my world at peace and with love
Track Name: North
The mountain air, the prairie song, to salty Newfoundland
The icy North, to old, old growth, to Goldrush dreams and plans,
And down the falls we find our dreams in falling maple leaves...

Oh Canada, I love my home
Oh Canada ah ah ah ah ah
Oh Canada, I love my home
It's hard to be away

Hockey sticks and wooly toques, to Emily Carr, Trudeau
To Joni songs, and Clayoquot saws, on CBC we grow
And Terri Fox, his dreams survives. We can do anything...

Oh Canada, I love my home
Oh Canada ah ah ah ah ah
Oh Canada, I love my home
It's hard to be ...

Below the 49th I feel so far away...
The friends I've known beg my heart to stay
And though I wasn't born to you
I know what's inside of me
To sing out proud for the land I love
The true North, strong and free

Oh Canada, I love my home
Oh Canada ah ah ah ah ah
Oh Canada, I love my home
It's hard to be away
It's hard to be away.
Track Name: Hope
A child asks why.. does a star have to fall
Where does all that light go
Can we bring it home and keep it in a jar
And know what heaven knows

Summer moves to autumn’s tune and
winter’s gloom is but a breath away
The naked trees and little birds that sing so sweet
Of springtime dreams and things that pass away

Tell us sometimes smiles turn to frowns and
often times we’ve broken down
but something greater lives beyond those stars
It’s small, quiet and powerful. It brings us closer than before
Far beyond life’s ashes tears and smoke
There is always hope.

A child asks why would someone set a fire
Why would they burn a home
Do they think it’s fun to watch another suffer
Where do all those tears run

Tis but a week or maybe two, engulfed in flames
Our little place of hope and faith burned through
And families, four, that lived next door
Lost their dreams, their good tidings, but something rang out true

That sometimes smiles turn to frowns and
Many times we’ve broken down
But something greater lives beyond those walls
It’s small, quiet and powerful. It brings us closer than before
Far beyond the ashes, tears, and smoke
There is always hope.

They always say it’s darkest before the light
And when a door closes sometimes the window’s locked up tight
And when you’re tired and there’s no rest in sight
We must remember….

That sometimes smiles turn to frowns and
Many times we’ve broken down
But something greater lives inside of us
It’s small, quiet and powerful, and brings us closer than before
Far beyond life’s ashes tears and smoke
There is always hope.

Grace - Words and Music By Fae Wiedenhoeft 26 Feb 2010
For my Father, Richard Wiedenhoeft

Grace
for the patience shown when I was young and questioning
Grace
for the years you worked two jobs to give us things
Grace
for the silent times when you knew I had to walk alone
Grace
for the quiet but gentle love you've shown
Grace
for the garden strong that you built so the birds could sing
Grace
for the times you showed Mom was a star sparkling
Grace
for the times you sang.. cookin' breakfast, oh those Sundays home
Grace
for the quiet and gentle love you've shown

It's not easy to raise a family
Do your best, work hard, accept what will be
Although we never dwelt on sentimental times or greeting card lines, you see
I knew you always loved me

Grace
for the family trips, pack the car, and enjoy the ride
Grace
for the times we laugh along that rocky mountainside
Grace
for the sideways smile that your jokes so often know
And Grace
for the quiet and gentle love you've shown

It's not easy to raise a family
Do your best, work hard, accept what can be
Although we never dwelt on sentimental times
or greeting card lines, you see
I knew you always loved me
Oh you loved me!
And I love you too!
Track Name: Home
The summer takes a sigh
The stars and moon are sitting high
And I’m not willing to say goodbye
For this is my home

Storms settled in too long
I held up your world, my shoulders strong
And even without you, I know I belonged
For this is my home

The wind is in the night
It speaks of a heart-spun flight
And it’s far beyond our talks of wrong and right
For I know I am home

Cedars beckon me near
The little birds sing ‘have no fear’
For even that great big sky, it sheds a tear
For you’ve found your home

My hopes live on your shores and your sand
And I am far beyond trying to understand
And sometimes love doesn’t walk hand in hand
But I know I am home

The wind is in the night
It speaks of a heart-spun flight
And it’s far beyond our talks of wrong and right
For I know I am home

I’m home.
