about

Paolo Brian Vancouver, British Columbia

Growing up, Paolo Brian cut his teeth on the traditional. However, this multi-instrumentalist’s musical inclinations are far from conventional. A classically trained pianist and Royal Conservatory graduate, Paolo traded in his orthodox ivories in order to create his own brand of personal and melody-rich pop music. ... more

Track Name: Tunnel Vision
Will the sun ever rise?
Will you always care?
Does a fire keep burning
if nobody’s there?

The groundhog saw its shadow
guess it’s gonna take a little longer
for you to find your way home
guess I gotta be a little stronger

Looking through a crystal ball
with my tunnel vision, tunnel vision
I barely see a thing at all
with my tunnel vision, tunnel vision

A man on the 99
was holding a stranger’s hand
she said she was a mother
that she could understand

and as he dried his tears
he said "A little bit sure goes a long way."
so don’t forget me here
when you’re blinded by the lights of LA
Track Name: Amnesia
Honey I don’t recognize my face
can you tell me who I am?
If I had all the time in the world just to remember
would I recognize who I’ve become?

And Honey I don’t even know my name
everywhere I look I’m lost
maybe I’m just looking in all the wrong places
Trying to figure out where I belong and how to live

and there are some days that I wonder if these times will change
Maybe when I stop believing in the good old days
Maybe when I stop wishing my life away
This amnesia this amnesia will fade

Tom and Christine had to sell the house
They had no other choice
They flew down to California for the surgery
They hoped that it would end the pain
He'd be himself again

and there are some days that I wonder if these times will change
Maybe when I stop believing in the good ol days
Maybe when I stop wishing my life away
This amnesia this amnesia will fade away

This amnesia, this amnesia will fade
Track Name: Tears Are On The Leaves
Tears are on the leaves
of all the trees
Fall...comes all too soon
Remember me?

I was there when you were brand new
Now you’re five months in
I can’t believe it’s you

Where were you that night?
Oh on that night
I called a so many times
with no reply

Were you in the arms of someone new?
There's no use in lying, I know it’s true

Tears are on the leaves
Raindrops memories
Tears are on the leaves
Raindrops memories

Were we just too young?
Or just old enough?

I was there when you were brand new
Now you’re five months in
You'll be a mother soon

Tears are on the leaves
Raindrops memories
Tears are on the leaves
Raindrops memories
Track Name: Colourblind
I can read the writing on the wall
I can see the look upon their faces
when I tell 'em that you’re going places
and I can’t get a hold of you

you’ve been lookin round for something more
maybe you would find it if you knew what you were looking for
maybe it would wash up on the shore
if you knew what you wanted more
if you knew what you were looking for

It's colourblind, It's colourblind
the future's colourblind and black and white
I close my eyes
When the future's colourblind and black and white
Oh it's black and white

I can read your mind it's all too clear
You finally made it up
And now it's time for all to hear
You've always been a mutineer
But I don't wanna disappear
Oh it feels like I'm disappearing

And the light sets upon my hometown
I see the light setting on my hometown

It's colourblind, It's colourblind
the future's colourblind and dark as night
when I close my eyes, when I close my eyes
the future's colourblind and black and white

open your eyes, open your eyes
