Seems Like Yesterday

Seems Like Yesterday
I remember when this old schoolyard was new
You and me standing close, not knowing what to do
So I took you by the hand, and said everything’ll be ok
That was long ago – it seems like yesterday
That old clock on the wall is slowly losing time
You’re all set to go, and doing fine
I remember cuts and bruises on your knee
Words of comfort in the rain, as gentle as can be
As we made our way back home, I knew everything’d be ok
That was long ago – it seems like yesterday
That old clock on the wall is slowly losing time
You’re all set to go, and doing fine
Pebbles falling. Riding the wave. Good friends and laughter. A heart so brave.
I remember looking for you in the crowd
Watching you standing there as you sang out loud
With a wave and a smile, you said everything’d be ok
That was long ago – it seems like yesterday
That old clock on the wall is slowly losing time
You’re all set to go, and doing fine.

Sunlight After Rain

Sunlight After Rain
Three blazing suns are frozen high above me now.
The air outside this window is cold and dry.
But as we roll along, my thoughts are warm.
And I can hear your voice if I try. I’m going home.
The sign for my hometown stands tall in the prairie wind.
The words are faded, cracked and bleached by the Sun
They call out from a time when this world was all I knew.
And you were always there when all was said and done.
Home is sunlight after rain as the call of a distant train fills the evening air.
Belonging everywhere. I’m going home.
I’m on my way home. I know the land around here. It calls out loud and clear.
I’ve been away for so long
Home is sunlight after rain as the call of a distant train fills the evening air.
Belonging everywhere. Knowing people care. I’m going home.
Faded memories still hang where you put them years ago, when your hands and mind were gentle and strong.
If we take them down, they might turn to dust. But we’ll carry on. We’ll carry on.
Home is sunlight after rain as the call of a distant train fills the evening air.
Home is shelter from a storm. Feeling safe and warm, with time to spare
Home is laughter and love, and tender memories of the stories we all share.
Belonging everywhere. Knowing people care.
Yeah, we’re finally there - I’m going home. I’m going home now.

Sweet Happiness

Sweet Happiness
A brand new day is on its way – sunlight on my skin
The dog’s wagging tail never fails to make me grin
Ah – sweet happiness
Silent trees tower over me in precious light
Birds in the air – a song so rare – it just feels right
All my worries are locked away for now
The sky is clear and bright
Ah – sweet happiness
I reach out for you first thing in the morning
I try to hold on tight all day long
I call your name as we all slide into twilight and dream
Ah – sweet happiness
A million diamonds overhead, the brilliant orange and red of a fading sun
Echoes of a child just running wild – and having fun
All these memories will see me through now
Keep them blues on the run
Ah – sweet happiness
Open up your loving arms, and I’ll do the rest

[Lyrics]


That River Rising

That River Rising
That old river’s coming up – looks like she wants to flood again
I’ve seen her at her worst. At least I thought so way back when
Now she’s higher than before, pushing hard against the shore
The time has come to take my place in line
You’ll never stop that river rising [so deep, fast and wide]
She’s gonna rise up when she can [time to set your life aside]
She’s gonna take all we have to give, every woman, child and man
Waiting for the siren’s call, there’s talk about what it means
When a slow, peaceful river becomes a raging stream
A gentle friend for all those years
Now full of old familiar fears
One by one we take our place in line
This has nothing to do with power. This has nothing to do with greed.
This flood is not about me or you. It’s just what rivers do.
I swear this river’s in my veins, as she boils so do I
Sometimes the lion kills the lamb, no matter how hard I try
When I’m raging like before, pushing hard against the shore
I know it’s time to take my place in line

[Lyrics]

Biography:

Listening to Glenn Sutter (‘sue-ter’) is like catching up with an old friend. After getting bogged down with the stress and complexities of daily life, you suddenly feel a sense of contentment and are reminded of what’s truly important. With his uplifting brand of folk-rock, Sutter’s honest, smart, and emotional songs have been catching the attention of music lovers across Saskatchewan and beyond for almost a decade. 

A lifelong, classically-trained musician, Sutter released his debut CD All You Need in 2008, produced by WCMA-winner David j Taylor. One of the tracks - a song about global issues called Weight of the World - brought national exposure when it became the Saskatchewan track on David Suzuki's Playlist for the Planet (CBC Radio3). This led to a 2010 live collaboration with Brett Dolter (B.D. Willoughby) called Seeds, and a 2011 solo release called Sweet Happiness, again produced by Taylor.

Sutter has spent the last few years playing local shows, touring, and writing new songs. The result is a stunning third solo album. Released in 2015, Let the Dog Run is a folk-rock gem chock full of hope, optimism, and honesty, produced by Mark Schmidt.
