Every encounter a musician has with an instrument is an invitation to discover its secrets, to reveal its true voice. This song is about that journey of discovery and a tribute to the guitar and all its diverse and conflicting pieces of Canadian history and culture - the pain and the beauty. During the song's recording, Voyageur was the only instrument used along with David's vocals.

Les Chansons Du Voyageur

Pain & beauty
Let it all move right through me
Good tales, sad tales
Benevolence & blackmail
No excuses
Tell me what the awkward truth is

Fighters, lovers
Singing at one another
Words expanding
A cultural understanding
Peace and noise in
All of the different voices

Hidden in this storying guitar
Écoute les chansons du Voyageur
Les chansons du Voyageur

Wood and bone,
Fretted metal & stone
Bridge and saddle
Time that’s meant to travel
Shame & sorrow
Hanging on “old tomorrow”

Answers, questions
Mother of invention
Tough vibrations
Reconciliation
Gently tethered
Strike a chord together

When you cry, I cry
Through the strings and tears
I hear everything, everything

Pain & beauty let it all move right through me (repeat x4)
