  1. Backyard Picnic

From the recording Here We Go

The brass you hear in this song was played by volunteers in the Salvation Army band in Calgary, AB. Shout out to them and their incredible talents.

Lyrics

I’m so glad you came here
I've missed you so much this year
The backyard is ready, whenever you are
Only blankets, no chairs

Hope you came hungry for this:
A picnic in warm Summer bliss
I’ll take the basket if you hold the door
Make sure the drinks don't tip

Oh, what a friend to have!
Someone to call when you're all alone
On you I can always depend
My best friend who levels my head,
My breath of air ‘till the end

Conversing as if it’s rehearsed
Of days passed, the best and the worst
We’ll laugh and we’ll smile, embrace as we cry
‘Till tomorrow comes back

Oh, what a friend to have!
Someone to call when you're all alone
On you I can always depend
My best friend who levels my head,
My breath of air ‘till the end

Even when the sun ain’t shining through my window pane and skies are grey and rain keeps on coming down
You won’t rest until the truth is spoken and the darkness broken by the hope and silver-lining found
I hope you know that I would do the same for you no matter what even if a prayer is all that can be done

Oh, what a friend to have!
Someone to call when you're all alone
On you I can always depend
My best friend who levels my head,
On you I can always depend
My best friend who levels my head,
My breath of air ‘till the end
My breath of air ‘till the end
