about

Stars Algonquin Toronto, Ontario

Drawing influence from Americana, Indie rock, and earnest Canadian rockers alike, Stars Algonquin pay homage to classic-pop and roots-rock songwriting to make music that is both introspective and spirited.
Based in Toronto, but comprised of musicians originally from Vancouver Island, imagery of the west coast is often reflected in the mood of the music.

Track Name: Keep On Dreaming
Are you all alone tonight
Watching your life on TV?
Are you sweating through your sheets
Thinking of ways to leave me?

I won't let you go
It's like I told you so
I won't let you go
So keep on dreaming now

Are you reaching your wit's end
With the way you soldier on?
Are dreaming of that day when I'll
wake up and you'll be gone

Oh no,
It's like they told you so
I won't let you go
So keep on dreaming now

White horses in the night
Things that help you feel alive
Race away, forget the fight
Terrified to shut the light, so
Keep on dreaming now

I won't let you go
It's like I told you so
I won't let you go
So keep on dreaming now
Track Name: Man of the Hour
He's got a way with words you just don't hear anymore
Droppin' lines so hot, he's gonna melt 'em before
They get a second to ask
Who brought this guy 'round here

When the music is bad, and the people don't know
The nucleus of the floor, the one who's dancing the snow
Shoe moonwalk with class
Even haters turn their heads as they pass on by
You should feel luck to know
You're with the man of the hour

Fighting out in the street, he's taking two at a time
Blood spilling on his new shirt, you can be sure he don't mind
Smokin' in the alleyway, just the same as yesterday
You should feel lucky to know
You're with the man of the hour

Fighting out in the street, he's taking two at a time
You know you are what you lack, so leave your doubts all behind
Smokin' in the alleyway, just the same as yesterday
You should feel lucky to know
You're with the man of the hour
Track Name: The Palace Hotel
I can tell by the way you're standing alone
Nobody's gonna break to make you feel at home
Spent your last quarter in the nuts machine
Bleeding from the nose, baby that's the scene

Oooh, you'll be the death of me
Oooh, you'll be the death of me

Tryin' to find the time on these glowing walls
Feeling like a kid in your high school halls
You see the same faces, they're tired and mean
Failing like the lights on the Keno screen

Oooh, you'll be the death of me
Oooh, you'll be the death of me

I've never seen the exit light so clear
I think it's 'bout a good time to disappear
I can't stand another wasted year
I think it's 'bout a good time to disappear

When the smoke gets stale and the night is done
They're the one's who're gonna say that you're the lonely one
But it's too dark now, and you can't go back
Stealing away and never paying it back

Oooh, you'll be the death of me
Oooh, you'll be the death of me

I've never seen the exit light so clear
I think it's 'bout a good time to disappear
I can't stand another wasted year
I think it's 'bout a good time to disappear
I think it's 'bout a good time to disappear
I think it's 'bout a good time to disappear
I think it's 'bout a good time to disappear
Track Name: Pushing Up Daisies
Where you runnin'
Where you runnin'
Where you runnin' now?

Where you runnin'
Where you runnin'
Where you runnin' now?

Take your time, til your time is gone, It's me,
I'm on your lawn and your lights are on
So hey, lock the door there's a bad man comin'
Pushin' up daisies til you dig me out, honey come on

Alright
Are you comin' out tonght?

Where you runnin'
Where you runnin'
Where you runnin' now?

Where you runnin'
Where you runnin'
Where you runnin' now?

Hold the phone cause your landlord's on the line
She said she's not gonna call ahead next time
So hey, lock the door there's a bad man comin'
Pushin' up daisies til you dig me out, honey
Alright
Are you comin' out tonight?
Track Name: Back Into the Sea
Pushing rocks uphill for eternity
Just to watch them roll back into the sea

Feeling the weight of it all
Feeling the weight of it all

Bailing fast but you know the hole is growing bigger
We'll find your body soon at the bottom the river

Feeling the weight of it all
Feeling the weight of it all
The feel of your mind in dissolve
Feeling the weight of it all

Infinitely billowing black sail bloom
In filling your lungs it's tearing through
Turn and face into the wind

Push it off the cliff and keep walking on
(Do you feel better now?)
Break on through the night to another dawn
(Do you feel better now?)
Pushing rocks for eternity it seems
(Do you feel better now?)
Track Name: Moonless Night
Turn back the clock
I'd like to write that page again
And I'll make a fool of myself
Many times again

Turn back into
The friend that I once knew before
Cause if you really knew
You wouldn't love me anyway

Don't leave me now
Cause this doesn't feel like the end
Don't leave me now
I don't know how I'll find you again

Feeling our way blind through the dark
Out in the open on this moonless night
Why are you walking fast ahead?
Forget what I said, you're only dreaming

Don't leave me now
Cause this doesn't feel like the end
Don't leave me now
I don't know how I'll find you again
