Lyrics

Charlottetown
Karine Ste-Marie, 2016

A soft wind blows on Charlottetown
Sun’s shining down as boats sail away
I walk alone, bohemian traits
But feel the need to stay in place

I ran away from Montreal
Fled who I was, the other me
But peace of mind is hard to find
When you lock your heart and throw the key

October breathes on Charlottetown
Shedding light on all the demons that I keep
The colored leaves fall on my soul
Death allows life to proceed

In Charlottetown
I have been found
Here ends the fight
I’ll be alright

Now I have found in Charlottetown
Life’s not as hard as it may seem
All the scenarios in my head
Flood every island of my dreams

It’s pretty calm in Charlottetown
As I begin to make amends
I’ve pushed it out, I’ve pulled it in
I’m ready to go home again

With opened arms in Charlottetown
Face to the sea, it’s horizon
I meditate, seeking peace
In a world that brings us to our knees

Chorus

A soft wind blows on Charlottetown
Sun’s shining down as boats sail away
I walk alone, bohemian traits
But feel the need to stay in place
