about

Pirates Canoe Kyoto, Japan

–– A roots music loving band, hopelessly stuck somewhere between American and Japanese ––

Although the members come from all sorts of genres, the band focuses mainly on Americana and roots-based music. All songs are original, yet sound like they could have been around for a while, managing to create a traditional but fresh sound.

Track Name: On Being Unknown
The night is full of distance sounds
Crawls across the walls
Up my cold skin and into my mind again
Into my mind again
I feel it once again

chorus ❦
Under my skin, under this face, I never find a way
Will it always be the same?
living in a body full of shame

I have a picture in my chest
From a past I cannot show I cannot betray I cannot tell
Am I alone in this scary, awkward strange place?

I would've given my all
I would've given the world a girl
Full of desire, of force, of lust for life

repeat chorus ❦

I'm tired of this waiting game
I'm tired of being so afraid
Track Name: Guitar Blue
chorus ❦
Sitting with a Killian's Red
Waiting for a song to take you somewhere
Somewhere you don't know
Never landing, never flying
Then it hits you in the chest
And by the second song you're missing her again

On the corner of a back street of a town you will find
Pirates Canoe
There's a singer with a song
Made of wings and dirt and the color blue

It's a vessel looking for a sea to sail
And you're alone in this place
With the only wind to take you being love and life
And bittersweet heartache

repeat chorus❦

When the night falls it's a place of hope and dreams
That still survive Pirates Canoe
If a melody is a bird riding a tune

Then a song is a cage that it's trapped in
So you paint your guitar blue
And a door to let it go, just hoping you don't lose it

repeat chorus❦
Track Name: Matty Maloy
Matty Maloy is a little bit shy
A little bit small in the face of this world
He's got his share of good days and bad
Of heartbreaks and laughs, like a silent bell

When he cries the tears fall within
And fall onto his heart to wash away the pain
He doesn't ask much from this life
But his dreams are like golden rainbows

Even if nobody notices
He's gonna keep trying his best
Even if nobody notices
He's gonna keep trying his best

Matty Maloy is a little bit shy
A little bit small in his own eyes
He's got his share of good days and bad
And his dreams are like golden rainbows
Track Name: Rainmaker
I once was a little girl
With the world in her eyes and the moon in her mind
I was waiting for something
Like a knock on the door that I'd recognize

I once was a sailor
I was out to find fortune and fame in the leagues
But I lost all my bearings
When the ocean was calm and the wind it was still
What can you do?

The rainmaker will call the wind and the storm
The storms raging will rattle the walls and the doors

I once was a gardener
My fields were the love and the pride of my heart
My flowers were lovely
But the sun can be brutal and the rain can forget
To fall on your plot

chorus ❦
The rainmaker will call the wind and the storm
The storms raging will rattle the walls and the doors
The waves crashing will hurl the pebbles and stones
The stone ground to the core will find its way home

I once was a lover
With the world in her hand and the sun in her arms
I thought I could survive
I thought I was the strongest stone in the sea
Stone in the sea

repeat chorus❦
Track Name: Goodbye Jacqueline
Raven hair and dark eyes
So many portraits to mirror your face
Canvas, bronze metal, clay, paper cutouts to fill that open space
If you were there to keep his sanity, his house and
His feet on the ground
Tell me, how did you keep your own
With a beautiful genius around?

chorus ❦
Jacqueline, did he leave with your heart in his hand?
Jacqueline, did you know you would give all you had?

Wedding vows with double-aim
Was this really something you wanted to win?
Oh but maybe his love was a fire that
You could not live without again
Everyone knows fire will only leave you with cinder and ash
Ashes scatter over hills and castles and graves and never last

repeat chorus❦
Track Name: Gull Flying North
I've been many times before
In this old little pub
But I'm still a stranger in these parts
Each season I come and go
Like the gull flying north
And believe you me the harvested fall
Is the saddest time of all
Come sit with me now
Raise a glass and we shall sing together

chorus❦
One for the pain in my heart
Two for these aching bones
Three for the girl who is waiting for me
And four for the journey home

I've seen several times before
Your kindly old face
Will you kill some time for a new friend
These travels they take their toll
I'm not so young as before
But I cannot give up until I can send
Some money home again
So come sit with me now
Raise a glass and we shall sing together

repeat chorus❦

Come sing with me now
One last time before tomorrow rolls in

repeat chorus❦
Track Name: Blind Is Love
Don't tell me love is blind
Don't mess with me honey I'm not that type
Yeah I know you're cute
I know you're handsome too
Available to boot
But you gotta know I'm no pretty boy's fool

Well okay everything you do
Tickles me half across the universe
And okay maybe when you make that silly face
My heart races a thousand times around the moon
But if there's one thing I know by now
It's that nothing lasts
And young love it doesn't stand a chance
So listen up honey this is what I say

chorus ❦
Don't tell me love is blind (I know it)
Don't mess with me honey I'm not that type
You think you've got me good (you better)
Show me how you're gonna love me like you know you should

I'm not afraid to say what I want
And what I want is you beside me just like this
So when you look at me like that
You got me on a string, but honey are you really gonna be true?
Cause if there's one thing I know by now
It's that nothing lasts
Unless you're willing to take that chance

repeat chorus ❦
Track Name: Wild Flowers
Wild flowers growing in the fields
Scarlet, yellow and blue
They bloom in the springtime, grow in the summer
And leave us in the fall

Wild flowers blowing in the wind
Violet, orange and white
They're pretty as a picture, soft as the rain
Bright as the light of the stars

chorus❦
They don't know the safety of the greenhouse
Protection from the storm
They don't know anger or pride
But they know the sun
And they know the blue of the skies

Wild Flowers, angels of the world
Blossom for you and for me
They bloom in the springtime, grow in the summer
And leave us in the fall

repeat chorus❦
Track Name: Leaving Places
Leaving places behind
Leaving spaces inside
This time she's going to ride her crazy mind

Mud-stained walls and empty cups
She wakes up hating every speck of dust
Nothing in this world can she trust
'Cause wishing wells will run dry and turn to rust

She glues her feet to the ground
Closes her eyes and waits for the tumble down
All the king's men will make no sound
'Cause your own bleeding heart will look away and let you down

This time she's going to hear that call
This time she's going to rise
This time she's going to kick that wall
This time she'll ride the high tide
x2

Leaving places behind
Leaving spaces inside
She knows it's better to leave before her time
But she is always left behind
