Easing into Friday Night with Patrick Watson…

Patrick Watson  is a Canadian singer-songwriter from Montreal, Quebec.

There is a house built out of stone
Wooden floors, walls and window sills…
Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust…
This is a place where I don’t feel alone
This is a place where I feel at home…

And I built a home
for you
for me

Out in the garden where we planted the seeds
There is a tree as old as me
Branches were sewn by the color of green
Ground had arose and passed it’s knees

By the cracks of the skin I climbed to the top
I climbed the tree to see the world
When the gusts came around to blow me down
I held on as tightly as you held on me
Held on as tightly as you held on me…

And I built a home
for you
for me

  1. A nice, gentle way to start the weekend. I hadn’t heard of Patrick before. Thank you for the introduction!


  2. Dave, I like the song – it’s mellow, relaxing, hypnotic, that minimalist style I can see you like. I do too. Not wild about the singer himself, who I assume wrote the piece. And the piano teacher in me is telling him to sit up straight and put both his feet on the floor. Nice music, though.

    When we are on the right track we give up no slack as we happily kick back.

    As least where I come from.



  4. Like him and the song! Reminds me a little of Dave Matthews.


  5. Never heard of him until now..I agree with your sister – a bit reminiscent of Dave Matthews (who I love)…I love the lyrics (especially having read that Rachel is home – it seems the perfect song for Friday).


  6. Thank you David, love this!!


  7. Wonderful song — thanks for sharing it, Dave. Shall I admit I’m unfamiliar with Patrick Watson, too? Guess I’ve been away from Canada for too long.
