    ★"What You Call Love" lyrics
    I heard a story that I could not wait
    The morning came and I was through the gate
    And into the arms of some other's bride
    And I sure took you for a ride
    I did not wait a minute for the courtesy of a call
    I just left in such a hurry...that's all
    Chorus
    What you call love...is that what I was leaving
    What you call love...is that what I betrayed
    What you call love...funny what we cling to
    But I can not stay a prisoner of a life that never was
    What you call love
    When you embraced me you looked right on past
    Into the eyes of your first and last
    Into the eyes of who turned you down
    Who never saw you in a wedding gown
    The pain may feel relentless but in the long haul
    We've got to hope that time heals all
    chorus
    You feel better hoisting the blame on me
    I'm just rejoicing finally getting free
    Our house was never any more than wrong
    What doesn't kill us makes us strong
    We all will carry crosses across some bleak terrain
    You and I we suffer just the same
    chorus

    About Patrick Ballantyne
    With over a hundred songs in his catalogue, Patrick Ballantyne knows "a good song stands on its own." His style is informed by classic Detroit rock and roll, yet his approach to songwriting could more accurately be described as British rock and roll meets country soul. The array of artists he has worked with demonstrates his versatility and endurance. His lyrics invite the listener into a world of universal themes of love and loss. Perhaps that is why songs like "All Hell for a Basement" have become staples of the Canadian music landscape.

    About the Song:
    "Wrestling With the Devil" chronicles efforts to break away from addiction. Patrick says, "The song was triggered by the deaths of Cory Monteith, and then Philip Seymour Hoffman shortly thereafter. But, more immediately, I've watched friends struggle, some successfully, others not".

    About Patrick Ballantyne
    While playing at any given venue, Patrick Ballantyne often hears someone in the audience shout out: "That is the best cover of 'All Hell for a Basement' I have ever heard!" But, it wasn't a cover. He co-wrote it ... just as he'd done with other Big Sugar songs: 'If I Had My Way', 'Girl Watcher', and 'I Want You Now'. Patrick has also collaborated on the radio hit 'Poor Ol' Broken Hearted Me' by the Trews. More recently, he's joined creative forces with CMT favorite and 'East Coast Music Award' winner, Tim Chaisson.

    A songwriter of breathtaking range, Ballantyne is one of those rare musical talents who is perfectly happy working behind the scenes to create songs that capture the hearts and imagination of music lovers, and hearing them interpreted or re-interpreted through the voices of others. ~ Lithium Magazine

    Usually content to for others, and with others, Patrick released his debut self-titled album in 2008. Initially intended as "demo real" to match artists with his songs, it found its own footing when Canadian music industry icon Ron Harwood placed it among one of his 5 best independent releases of the year. But, unlike his debut, his latest album, Days of Rain, contains songs that were written without the expectation that they would be adopted out.

    Patrick explains, "The whole album came about because there had been a lot of loss in my circle of family and friends. There was all this heaviness going on and it influenced the record. That's where the Days of Rain title came from. It was about trying to get through the dark to find the light. Even though there is loss, you have to remember all that's worth living for. Essentially, that is the theme of the record ... dealing with those struggles. Directing all that into music is how I deal with it."

    Sonically, the songs of Days of Rain are influenced by Motown, the Beatles, Pink Floyd and classic "singer-songwriters". Lyrically, however, the themes of loss and renewal make clear that Ballantyne is channeling 'Soul Music'.

    Ballantyne produced the album alongside Windsor-based producer Mark Plancke, and played all the instruments on Days of Rain excluding drums, which were played by Windsor percussionist Christian Bonk.

    Ballantyne will play some select dates in the coming months, while continuing to write whenever he can with long-time collaborators and some new artists. Patrick explains, "I love co-writing...one never knows what will emerge. Writing is what I do most naturally...but every now and again I need to get on stage...to reference John Lee Hooker...it's in me, it's got to come out!"

    "Move a Mountain" (copywrite 2008) Lyrics
    It's so early in my day
    But I just can't stay asleep
    I keep thinking bout the way
    You have penetrated deep

    Chorus

    Maybe if I move a mountain
    Maybe if I part the sea
    Maybe if I move a mountain
    You would see the strength you give to me

    You have pulled the covers high
    May your dreams be filled with peace
    And I watch your sleeping eyes
    Hoping I might find release

    (Chorus)

    In an hour or two the sun
    Will rise and light this bitter grey
    If I hadn't found this song
    I'd have stayed in bed all day

    (Chorus)
