about

Through his newest EP, Spin Around Me, Montreal-based singer-songwriter, Joey Langlois aims to encourage compassionate motives and actions. Having recognized his own self-centeredness, Joey provocatively leaves listeners pondering: "We've made ourselves the center of a cosmic carousel," in hopes that realization leads to change.

Track Name: Maybe Just Maybe
My heart has a mind of its own, it holds on when I have let go
My heart has a river of hope, brainwashing me shipwreck to driftwood
It leads me down by the coast, it leaves me there on my own
Right where we used to stand,

Maybe just maybe, you and I baby could work
Distance and time are no mountain to climb
When you're on the other side

My heart has a theory to prove
The orbit of hearts that are moved
One set on the course of a star
Sees clearer while drifting afar
Yet it's blinding while they are close
That burning is what they want most
So just give time we'll turn around

Maybe just maybe, you and I baby could work, we could work yeah
Distance and time are no mountain to climb
When you're on the other side

Don't you promise, don't you promise, don't you
Don't you promise me what we may not be

Maybe just maybe, you and I baby could work
Distance and time are no mountain to climb
When you're on the other side

Don't know if you'll be there, I'll know when I get there
To be in love or be fool
Maybe just maybe, you and I baby could work

Maybe just maybe, you and I baby could work
We could work yeah
Track Name: Spin Around Me
If I'm honest with you
On my thoughts on what you've said
I'm afraid I'd disappoint you
Cause I thought up what I'd say next

Do you remember when they said the earth was flat
They weren't so primitive, I'm not so different now than that

Sun comes up, sun goes down
So it must spin around me
So, so self centred
So, so self centred

Like a child swimming upstream
Like a dog chasing its tail
My focus fixed on my own movement
with no bearings on the world

And then we wonder why we wind up by ourselves
We've made ourselves the centre of a cosmic carrousel

Sun comes up, sun goes down
So it must spin around me
So, so self centred
So, so self centred

It goes up, up, up, up, up, Oooaheeyaoahwupowow
It goes down, down, down, down, down, d-daeeowohwupowow

Sun comes up, sun goes down
So it must spin around me
So, so self centred
So, so self centred

It goes up, up, up, up, up, Oooaheeyaoahwupowow
It goes down, down, down, down, down, d-daeeowohwupowow
Track Name: Growing On Me
It started off as a whisper in the back of my mind

I should've know it would take over just a matter of time

It didn't help that you were quiet

Demanding more of my attention

So leaning in I couldn't hide it

I read the things you wouldn't mention

And oh how the beautiful the things you find when you're looking

And oh sweet the sound, the words that you note when you're listening

You, you're growing on me, slowly but surely
You, you're growing on me, slowly but surely

Im not a very good container
with something brewing on the inside
Id rather spill it now than later
but I keep waiting till the time's right
It didn't help to have a sweet tooth when words you say are like dessert
Like dipping fruit in chocolate fondue, you wouldn't know it but it works

Oh how could I know the thing that I'd taste I'd be craving
Oh how fond you grow of flavours you miss while you're waiting

You, you're growing on me, slowly but surely
You, you're growing on me, slowly but surely
You, just like a tree, planted within me
You, you're growing on me, slowly but surely

It's not the same as anything I've had
I can't explain and there's no definition

You, you're growing on me, slowly but surely
You, you're growing on me, slowly but surely
You, just like a tree, planted within me
You, you're growing on me, slowly but surely

It started off as a whisper in the back of my mind

Track Name: Love Is A Train
Alarms ring the very second
You're sure you just fell asleep
And you walk in with that same old fashion
Look that makes a man stand to his feet
Just back from battle

Love is a train that shows up where it wants to
Blocking my way, all I wanted was to pass through
I stand at the gate, could board it if I want to
I hesitate, I don't know where it leads to
It shows up where it wants to

Took time to regain my bearings
Reset a course to my destiny
A train wreck is no easy crossing
When you crawl from beneath debris
My heart meets with metal

Love is a train that shows up where it wants to
Blocking my way, all I wanted was to pass through
I stand at the gate, could board it if I want to
I hesitate, I don't know where it leads to

The last time I took a transit out of my control
I clung blindly to the cargo, wouldn't let it go
I didn't get off when the time had come
I didn't look for where the tracks end up
They show up where they want to, they show up where they want to

Love is a train that shows up where it wants to
Blocking my way, all I wanted was to pass through
I stand at the gate, could board it if I want to
I hesitate, I don't know where it leads to

It shows up where it wants to
Track Name: Pull Yourself Together
Im at my pity party with all my failures and my dreams
There's a savage sort of tango on the dance floor at my feet
Stepping on my toes swinging back and forth stare down and cant look forward
Any moment now I'll crash it

One day we've all said this to ourselves

Pull yourself together
Get on with the show
We're not getting younger
We've got far to go

Paralysed inside my household by the lion at the door
The prey in me would gladly stay here but my soul cries out for more
Now I have to fight thinking I just might defeat the roaring unknown
We're not meant to stay in hiding

Sometimes we just need the final push

Pull yourself together
Get on with the show
We're not getting younger
We've got far to go

There's no one stopping you
Except for your excuses
You've got a gift my friend
Just man up and use it

Pull yourself together
Get on with the show
We're not getting younger
We've got far to go
Pull yourself together
Get on with the show
We're not getting younger
We've got far to go
