Welcome to the show, you feel your mind is gone again Life is but a joke so take a token from a friend Scared of sayin’ I love you Nowadays you might get sued I dare you to be one of the few Take your coat off leave your shoes outside Settle in to who you are inside Don’t you know MI CASA SU CASA? You know that I would be there for you And I hope you’d do the same for me

Speak to Me 03:35
I called you up this evening To say something from my heart And when we made it to the hard part We seemed to have got disconnected The lines don’t seem too clear ‘Cause every time I feel I’m getting near I wonder if you know where I am going Are you coming with me or are you staying here? The days fly past like tomorrow We think about it though it isn’t here I just wanna be lyin’ there beside you Talking ‘bout our problems ‘til it’s clear I just want someone who I can talk to Who can tell me what it is that makes them bleed “Cause the wounds keep coming in with each day But they all go away when I hear you say.

Tongues 03:08
It's the tongue that keeps it together And can make a love last forever Kissing or talking is better Helps to get us through the nasty weather You gotta talk about things together Or cook a meal to get the glandulars wetter 'Cause I can't think of anything better To take your mind off whatever upset her (Chorus) It can make you feel as light as a feather When you get those two tongues together A wet marinade of salty leather Is the secret of keeping it together (Chorus) So come out of your shell and tell her That you'd like to join together In conversation of lickity splendour Don't be shy with your region of nether

Got up on the wrong side of the bed Hair standing on my head Wondering how I’ll make it through this day without you Try to decide on what to do Thinking of something new I wanna be true to who I am Don’t wanna let down Uncle Sam…. You’re gonna make it if you try Havin’ some breakfast with my tea And watchin’ some TV I know that I’ll get there someday Someone, somehow, somewhere, someway… You’re gonna make it if you try Don’t have to put on a disguise You have to spread your wings and FLY, Fly, you can make it if you try Don’t let those buggers bring you down They’ll turn your pretty smile in to a frown Don’t have to put on a disguise You have to spread your wings and FLY.

Used to have the family Used to have the kids But now they've moved far away and i'm often here alone Gotta move on now--get on with my work This is the worst day in the world. Didn't follow orders Stayed who i am I was supposed to be another man but i guess that's in the can Gotta carry on now--get on with my world This is the worst day in the world. Never really married me she kept close to her family Raised in SUCH a way to trust no one, you have to do just what they say And if the heirarchy should fall just like the others did before It doesn't matter, this is exactly what we came here for Now the kids see you The way you're meant to be Met someone real nice who knows just what you need So glad to move on now--get on with your life This is the best day in the world This is the best day in the world.

Smile, you’re alive. It only gets worse if you try You can’t understand the feelings you have inside You’ll spend your life searching and trying to decide So smile, you’re alive, let our love provide ~ Oh, there’s that feeling again, It’s gone It might have a meaning from beyond, but it’s gone You’ll find the answer…. Don’t let that feeling go away The feeling that you cannot do anything anyway We’ll find the answer when we’re gone Provide Provide Provide…

Willkommen in deiner Show Lass Deine Sorgen einmal weg Du wirst spüren (spür'n) auf Reisen Sehnt man sich nach Leichtgepäck Und fühlst Du ein "Ich liebe Dich" Sag es laut und zöger nicht Keiner dreht Dir daraus einen Strick Mach's Dir bequem in Deiner eigenen Welt Zeig sie mir so wie sie Dir gefällt Weisst Du nicht: "Mi casa su casa" Bist Du ein Fisch bin ich dein Wasser Weil ich Dir ein Freund bin So wie Du für mich

about

The new album, "Double Mind", from acclaimed Toronto musician David Celia, is a collection of songs written and developed while maintaining a busy touring schedule across Europe and North America. Entirely self-financed and produced, the album embraces a diversity of genres from the past while at the same time managing to sound completely fresh and current. The songs are a lyrical and musical reflection of timeless and various topics; everything from lost and new-found love to the rigors of being a working, independent artist and all points in between. Themes of "pay-it-forward" thinking, insecurity, confidence, humour, and sardonic wit abound. Overall, the mood is joyously optimistic with more than it's share of instantly memorable and compelling songs which captivate and stay with you after just one listen. This album proves once again that David Celia is an innovative and relevant artist, consistently growing and challenging himself.

"Double Mind" was mixed by Andy Magoffin (Great Lake Swimmers) at the House of Miracles in Cambridge, ON where he also recorded some of the tracks (David additionally used Butler Recordings in Brooklyn, NY and his home studio, Organica). This album features some great musicians from across North America: NYC artists Michelle Casillas (Jesse Malin) and Ed Pastorini (Beth Orton, Antony and the Johnsons, Rufus Wainwright), along with some of Canada’s best; the wonderful Catherine MacLellan (True North Records), Ariana Gillis (Six Shooter Records), Gene Hardy (Michael Bublé), Cleave Anderson (early Blue Rodeo), Joan Besen (Prairie Oyster) and many more.

Check out David’s schedule on his website, www.davidcelia.com. When he is not on tour you can find him at The Cameron House (408 Queen Street West, Toronto), every Friday from 6-8pm. The big album release show for "Double Mind" is on June 4th at The Great Hall (1087 Queen Street West, Toronto) with support acts, Ferraro & Devin Cuddy.
