Control

I need space...I need a moment to breathe
before it's too late. I can hardly see
The fog clear up and lift above my window
I cannot look ahead...

'Cause I feel like I'm spinning out of Control
I Took my eyes away driving off the road

Into the storm where there are no signs
Where do I turn 'cause I'm going in blind
The fog clears up and lifts above my window
I still can't look ahead...

I feel like I'm spinning out of Control
I Took my eyes away driving off the road

*Flashing before my eyes*

Neon lights crash into my face
Picking me up to find a better place
I don't have a choice....let it go

I see now it's time to let it go
Take my eyes away, take me off this road

In this place...there is a moment to breathe

[Lyrics]


Hideaway

Updated Lyrics:
She used to hold my hand and not let go
Looked into my eyes and always felt at home
fall asleep resting my arms
we'd watch tv and cuddle in the dark

Those days are long behind me
I have to move on
but I can't throw out our picture resting by my window

Chorus:
Your smiles burned into my brain
becoming jaded memories
I cant forget so I hide away
a Hideaway

She cured my fear of heights and rollercoaster rides
we used to dance under nature's candlelight
She loved green tea, the flower shoppe and bulk barn
and couldn't sleep when we'd spent a night apart

Your smiles burned into my brain
becoming jaded memories
I can't forget so I hide away
a Hideaway

those days are long behind me
I have to move on

Your smile's burned into my brain
becoming jaded memories
I can't forget so I hide away
in a Hideaway
Your smile is burned into my brain
Becoming Jaded memories
I can't forget so I hide away
in a Hideaway...

Biography:

Andrew Parton is an Ottawa based singer-songwriter that aims to use his music to tell his stories and the stories of his listeners.

Andrew is not only a singer-songwriter, but is know for getting his feet wet in other genres. In 2016, Andrew shared the stage with upcoming artists such as BC Country Music Singer Lisa Nicole, Hamilton's Mark McDonald among others. Andrew also performed with artist Jacelyn Holmes at the 2016 TD Toronto Jazz Festival; playing jazz/blues guitar in her band.

Currently, Andrew is working on his first two EP's to be released later in 2017 as well as developing a catalogue of new, original material.

Without the benefit of a formal education in music, other than in high school, his growth as a musician was entirely his own. His unique style developed with little external guidance throughout his studies at Carleton University. When your choices are between boring textbooks on law and the sweet allure of an acoustic guitar resonating on an open stage it can be a little tough to focus. Despite this, Andrew finished his studies in 2013 with a Bachelors Legal Studies degree which he snuck in between his real reasons for continuing university (you know; fundraising at coffee houses and local bar open mic nights). From 2009 to 2013 it was hard to be a student at Carleton without hearing him at one (or many) student events. Relay For Life and the Terry Fox Run are two regular staples of his musical diet.

However - life goes on and we can't stay at university forever. With graduation behind him Andrew has found steady work on the Ottawa / Toronto circuit making new connections every day through Songwriter conventions, local Arts and Culture events fit into his busy schedule of gigs. True to his roots he still likes to swing through the occasional coffee house event and play a freebie show - but only if you're raising money for a good cause.
