Love Alive

Love Alive
Dave Filchak © 2020

Whatcha gonna do
When your world comes tumblin’ down
Whatcha gonna do
When your love just can’t be found
You know you should be sitting
On top of the world
But it might just not be
Part of the real world

If your heart was true
And you mind was clear
You’d know the words you speak
Would not ring true
You know that time is running out
The things you have
Are not the things you need

Whatcha gonna do
When your world comes tumbling down
Whatcha gonna do
When your world is on shaky ground
Lies ring out
Like shots in the night
There is no choice
You will have to fight
You’ll have to fight
To keep your love alive

Help me help me
Someone cries out loud
Whip out the camera
Send it out worldwide
You say
Isn’t it cool how bad things just can’t hide
But did you ever think
You need to get inside
Reach in, reach out
A moment spent
Is what it’s all about
It’s time to live
It’s time to care
Bring it out
Bring your love out there

Whatcha gonna do
When your world comes tumbling down
Whatcha gonna do
When your world is on shaky ground
Lies ring out
Like shots in the night
There is no choice
You will have to fight
You’ll have to fight
To keep your love alive

Keep your love alive
Don’t let it fall
Don’t keep your love inside
It’s not meant to hide
Let it out
Let it shout
Lift your arms
Reach on out
The love you make
Is the love you take inside
Inside your heart

Whatcha gonna do
When your world comes tumbling down
Whatcha gonna do
When your world is on shaky ground
Lies ring out
Like shots in the night
There is no choice
You will have to fight
You’ll have to fight
To keep your love alive

Keep your love alive
You have to fight

Biography:

Dave Filchak is a singer/songwriter from Lethbridge, Alberta, where he grew up listening to artists like Jimmie Rogers, The Kingston Trio, Bill Haley, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and Led Zeppelin, to name a few. He now calls Toronto home, and his musical tastes run as wide as the open prairies he hails from. Filchak has been writing songs since he can remember, and, in his opinion, has lived and played through all the great changes in modern music. He has many musical influences and he’s turned these influences into a style all his own, music only he can produce. No one sound defines him; he just writes whatever feels right to him.

When asked to describe his music, he’ll tell you, “I’ve always struggled with labels. When it comes to music, you either like it or you don’t. You either feel something or you don’t, it’s that simple! Labels are there to help people understand the music you write, but I don’t think I sound like anyone. I sound like me-Dave Filchak.”

His musical career began in high school and never stopped. He has been a touring musician, a studio owner, and an engineer, mixing and producing singles and albums for many Canadian artists. He has released several albums of his own: End of the Line when he was with the group Moses. two solo albums, Livin’ on Laughs and recently, Singles on Zuka Music. He also released an EP in with Sharp Edges titled Slice of Life on Aquarius/Capitol, and many single releases long before the current trend of single releases was in vogue. Currently, he’s working on material as well as remasters of some of his older material for release in the next year.
