about

Matthew de Zoete Hamilton, Ontario

Imagine Nick Drake cheering up a bit and living long enough to work with Beck. That's the vision conjured by Matthew de Zoete on his latest album Colour Film - strong melodies and honest lyrics inhabiting a modern home. Produced by Les Cooper, the disc's inspired rhythm section, lush keyboards, and sparkling pedal steel call for a dark room, good headphones, and a glass of single malt. ... more

Track Name: The Good Life
THE GOOD LIFE

i've got my hands in the sink
i'm washing dishes while the sun goes down
and from the shower you sing
about the night they drove old dixie down
i'm gonna take you out tonight

you're giving me the good life
you're giving me the good life

you're getting dressed in our room
i hear the tickin tack of high heeled shoes
the suns got nothing on you
and there is nothing i would rather do
than dance with you tonight

you're giving me the good life
you're giving me the good life

there's always something to celebrate
there's always nothing to hide
you are the greatest of everything
what a life

i've got these dish pan hands
you'll let them hold you til it's closing time
you like that look on a man
i'm gonna hold you til the morning shines
i'm gonna take you home tonight

you're giving me the good life
you're giving me the good life
Track Name: We're Dying
WE'RE DYING

it's strange to feel this cold to the woman who's my wife
but i guess that there's a first time for everything in life
and we both know life ain't fair

i dreamed that you've been sleeping with someone we both know
i dreamed that i have left you sometime long ago
i wake up and you're still there

but i think we're dying
we're dying
we're dying and sometimes i dont' care

i don't feel that spark when my fingers touch your sking
sometimes it feels like work, sometimes it feels like sin
there's no more magic in your hair

and i think we're dying
we're dying
we're dying and sometimes i dont' care

do you hear me? you sit and stare
i'm looking at you but you're not there
i watch you vanish in the air
and we're dying

what else should i say to you, what else should i do?
where we go from here i leave that up to you
but everything has been laid bare

and i think we're dying
we're dying
we're dying and sometimes i dont' care
Track Name: Going Nowhere
GOING NOWHERE

another town tonight
a bar with neon lights
all the locals sit there looking for a fight
above the empty chairs
the hockey game blares
no one notices you're there

stay home tonight
you're going nowhere here
and you're going nowhere fast
stay home tonight
you're going nowhere now
and you're gonna get there fast

when you look in the mirror
you wish that you weren't here
ten thousand miles from everything that you hold dear
in a world of philistines
you're david with a sling
but you got nothing up your sleeve

stay home tonight
you're going nowhere here
and you're going nowhere fast
you should have stayed home tonight
you're going nowhere now
and you're gonna get there fast
you'll get there fast
