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: Faith in Me
Someday I’m gonna head out
I’m gonna sail on the big wide sea

Someday I’m gonna stand on
The top of the mountain
The whole world to see

Oh the whole world to see
Oh the whole world to see

Someday I’m gonna reach out
I’m gonna touch the big blue sky

Until then I’m gonna keep on
This road that I’m on
The whole world to find

Oh the whole world to find
Oh the whole world to find

Why do you wait for me so patiently?
Why do you have so much faith in me, faith in me, faith in me?

Someday I’m gonna head out
I’m gonna sail on the big wide sea

Someday I’m gonna stand on
The top of the mountain
The whole world to see
Track Name: The Sweetness
Sometimes I don’t know what I’m gonna do
Sit down and think now, What do you have to prove?
What is this feeling that’s got me in its clutch?
I just don’t believe I will amount to anything much

But I hear the sunrise singing to the trees
I count the years by the ripples on the sea
I know the sinner brought down to her knees

I don’t mind the rain much, it keeps me in a cloud
Away from the hustle and the bustle so frightening and loud
They say it’s either stay right here or go
So I’ll go, but don’t tell anyone how I tremble from head to toe

But I hear the mermaids sighing for their homes
I read the stories written in the stones
I feel the sweetness running through my bones
I’ve seen the angel dancing on her own

Gold and silver chains
Tinkle in fine refrain
But look at the rainbow above
Proof of the sun and the rain’s love

I am the sunrise singing to the trees
I am the sinner brought down to her knees
I am the stories written in the stones
I am the sweetness
