    The F&W Story, Part the Second After the ir fi rst album tour, during which our dynamic duo spent a lot of time dr iving and slightly less time playing, Stephen

    and Andy entered a whole new health regime based upon a heady mix of toast-eating and hot yoga, in preparation for theirfollow-up recording.

     The first album was written in short bursts over several years, so the second would definitely need a different approach. They didn’twant to leave it too late - Stephen had discovered mini Altoids and needed refills. Andy’s elite frequent flyer status was in danger ofslipping. The guys decided to write the album in two longer sessions, at opposite ends of Canada.

     Andy flew from windswept Dublin into a Halifax blizzard in January 2011. He unpacked his baby 12 string, Stephen plugged in hisamp and the songs came quickly, interrupted only by a Boys Night Out in a man cave and a nasty conflagration over the placement of

    a preposition or two. That summer, Stephen flew to Vancouver, Andy arrived from Melbourne, and the lads were soon to be found in a UBC lecture room,rehearsing their live set, refining the songs started in Halifax, and starting a second batch.

     After playing the Vancouver Folk Festival, the two reconvened in a Frida Kahlo-themed villa on beautiful Salt Spring Island, whereevery second person is a potter. Stephen saved himself and Andy was accosted by a hippy. They finished the album in a creative burstassisted by a combination of fresh fruit, romantic dreams and unreliable wi-fi.

    Stephen and Andy reconvened in in Guelph, recording at Scott’s place once again. Gary came to play drums, bringing Cuban cigars

    and a bottle of Bushmills. Stephen had a significant birthday and made doorstep sandwiches. Andy texted in the snow and let the catin. And out. And in again. Two weeks later, the second album was finished. It’s brash and sensitive, written in winter and summer, in times of trouble,

    thoughtfulness and laughter - on bass and electric, as well as acoustic guitars. It includes the most traditional ‘Fearing & White’ songas well as the loudest.

    If you hear the throbbing roar of a hire car full of guitars coming round the corner, Stephen and Andy are sure to be playing some-where near you in the not-too-distant future. Be sure you meet them at eight, for tea and confidences.

    Secret Of A Long-Lasting Love

    What is the secret of a long lasting loveForever, till death do us part

    When I’m out here travelling and you stay at home And it’s weighing heavy on my heartWith all this desire and the best of intentionsWon’t someone come up with a sure-fire invention

     That fits in your hand like a soft satin glove And holds the secret of a long-lasting love

    I was born at the start of the summer of loveI grew up in a world full of change

    Everybody I met was out looking for truth

    Some of them never made it home againMy parents were kids when they started a familyMarried on Monday divorced on SaturdayNo place to turn when push came to shove

     They never learned the secret of a long-lasting love

    I knew when I saw you, I wanted it all The future to have and to holdFor better or worse till the sun goes down

     And paints this little town goldSo hold onto me darling

     At the end of the day You give me your heartI won’t throw it away

     And we’ll build us a dream that’s strong enough To carry the secret of a long-lasting love

    Saint Christopher’s with me wherever I go And a picture of you always brings me homeWhere two lovers kiss and the moon up aboveShines down on the secret of a long-lasting love

    Another Time Another Place

     There was a timeWhen I left it all unspokenI could only keep things to myself

     You think I could tellSay these words without jokingBut I was young and foolish about love

     Another time, another placeI know I will see her faceWhen everything is right

    I’m going to find that girl

    When you are young And your heart is unb roken You can only think about yourself You never believe That the moment will comeWhen you will need to lean on someone else

     Another time, another placeI know I will see her faceWhen everything is rightI’m going to find that girl

    When the first morning lightPaints the dark out of the nightWhen everything is right

    I’m going to find that girl

    So many peopleLooking for something

     Tumbling in the darkHow can I go on living without youWithout falling apart

     Another time, another placeI know I will see her faceWhen everything is rightI’m going to find that girl

    When the first morning lightPaints the dark out of the nightWhen everything is rightI’m going to find that girl

    When everything is right

    I’m going to find you

    This Isn’t Hollywood

    Smokin’ in doorways and laughingRockin’ and rollin’I wonder what went wrong

    She’s been runnin’ her whole life longDominique told me thatShe would do anything to be freeSo she hitched a ride

     Through the West Coast night

    I drove to CaliforniaI tried every cornerWant to make it rightI was studying facesIn a Greyhound stationWhen I realized

     This isn’t Hollywood

     Tattooed in rosesShe turned her back on the sadnessShe saw in her Mum and Dad

     And all the things they’d had

    Making it, faking it goldenLoving the feeling ofLiving on your ownBeats a broken home

    I drove to CaliforniaWhere everything’s warmerIn the neon light

    I’m trying to tell you

    Don’t buy what they sell you’Cause when you close your eyes

     This isn’t Hollywood

    Wearing your dreams on your sleeveUnder your skinI still see the other girlShe came from a different world

    Smokin’ in doorways and laughingRockin’ and rollin’She looks a lot like youWithout a rose tattoo

    I drove to CaliforniaWe talked on the cornerUnder neon lightI want you to come with me

     You’ve so much to give meIn this real life

     This isn’t Hollywood

    To The Great UnknownForget about religion

     And books are not enoughSay a prayerFor all the little thingsI don’t know whyOr what tomorrow brings

    Like a ship out on the oceanLike a child under the starsSay a prayer

     To the great unknown

    I don’t know howWe ended up aloneI believe we will find our wayBack home

    Remember when you were youngEvery picture painted clearSay a prayer

     Time is passing onI don’t why

     The future takes so long That’s the starWe’ve been following

    Carried on the wind The circle spinsWhere do we belongOnly you and meNo certainty

     To this dreaming on

    When evening steals the sky And time is running downSay a prayerEvery year that passes byI don’t know whyEvery hour that’s come and gone

    Think Of Me Like Summer

    I can’t make you love me Though I know you care There’s flies on the windshieldDust in my hair

    I can’t take you with me Though you know I wanted toEvening falls magenta

     And the ocean deep and blue

     Think of me like summer All the timeOutdoors drinking wineWith your ice-cream smileCrickets in the cedars keeping time

     Think of me like summer

    I can’t make you love me Though I know you couldSo when you’re thinking of me

     Think of me like summer

     You treated me like familyShowed me who you are

     You opened up your heart to meWe were talking at the bar

    Fall in the airIn the leavesIn the forestFall in your hairIn the wingsOf the birdsFlying over us

     Think of me like summer All the time Think of me like summerOutdoors drinking wine

     Think of me like summerWith your ice-cream smile

     Think of me like summerCrickets in the cedars keeping time

     Think of me like summerI can’t make you love me

    I can show you that I care

    I got room in my heartI want you to be there

    I can’t make you love me Though I know you couldSo when you’re thinking of me

    Save Yourself 

    If you want me You want me You want me to tell youWhere we’re going wrong

    Do you need me

    Do you need meDo you need me to paint you a pictureWhere you belong

    Every time that we were good togetherPromises whispered down the lineIn the distance

     You could taste it And you waited all this time

    Save yourself, yourselfFrom the crooked hand of disappointmentSave yourself, yourself

     This time save yourselfFor me

     You called me You were wasted

     You were poisoned by the darkness in your heart

    Emigrant song

    Fare thee well, my one and onlyI am travelling overseas

    For my country doesn’t want me And my faith is on its knees

    I will follow every highway Through the streetlights and the chrome To find a city where someone needs me And a place to call my own

    On Sunday night, I was in DublinIt was the last day of the yearWalking though a concrete wasteland

     All that ancient hope and fear

     There was nothing left to reach for To pull myself out of the frayI got my ticket now, and I am leavingSo don’t watch me walk away

    Fare thee well, my fickle homeland

     Always loved you from the firstFare thee well, beautiful countryEven when you’re at your worst

    When the rain falls in VancouverSomething makes me look awayLike every emigrant, I still love you

     This is why I cannot stay

    Eighth Wonder Of The World

    I was accosted by a hippy

    He promised me the eighth wonder of the world Things got kind of trippy As the rubber bands un furledHe said “Close your eyes”He asked if I was epileptic

     To my complete surprise The kaleidoscope turned the scep tic

    It was the eighth wonder The eighth wonder of the worldMy magic numberI was counting on the eighth wonder of the world

    I was enchanted by a modelShe promised me the eighth wonder of the worldI thought it would be a doddle

     As she preened and posed and bounced and twirledShe took me to her condoShe said “Close your eyes”

    While a man named Armando Took my wallet and unzipped my flies

    She was the eighth wonder The eighth wonder of the worldMy magic numberI was dazzled by the eighth wonder of the world

    I was smoking in a ghetto A poet promised me the eigh th wonder of the worldHe spoke in a falsettoUnder a purple sky as the sidewalk swirledHe said “Close your eyes”

     Then he asked for a donationImagine my surpriseI was reincarnated as a blonde Alsatian

    I was the eighth wonder The eighth wonder of the world Though I’m scared of thunderI’m barking, I’m the eighth wonder of the world

    Everybody’s searching for a philosophyEverybody’s gonna have to wait and see

    ’Cause we’re the eighth wonder

     The eighth wonder of the worldWe’re the magic numbersI’m counting on the eighth wonder of the world
