English Bay

You are so far away on this cold empty night
As I lie in a hotel room looking at a street light
Outside my window I listen to the rain
The sound of the passing cars and the waves
on English Bay
And I wonder you think of me as I dream of you
Do you hear the song that I sing in this hotel room?
'Cause I see you in the stars above and in every setting sun
Even though you are 1500 miles away, I hear you howling at the moon

And I hold you in my mind and I start to float away
and the whole world seems very strange in a pleasant kind of way
And then the morning sun comes up
and puts an end to this long night
And hope that anything I wish you were here
lying by my side, holding me near
listening to the rain, the passing cars and the waves on English Bay





songwriters: Jim Cuddy and Blue Rodeo

performed by: Blue Rodeo

date released: 1993 by Blue Rodeo

Blue Rodeo is one of Canada's premier pop and country rock bands hailing from Toronto, Canada. The band consists of five original members: Jim Cuddy, Greg Keelor, Bazil Donovan,
Glenn Milchem and Bob Egan. The original members, Cuddy and Keelor met in high school and moved on to university together where they began jam regularly with other musicians forming the core of Blue Rodeo.

Twelve notable albums later, the band continues to produce music and collaborate with other Canadian artists. Many Juno Awards later, Blue Rodeo was inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame in 2009.

This homespun video was included in the songbook as a model for what can be done as classroom projects with technologically-savvy students. Their task would be to choose a place in Vancouver and make a presentation on it including a song of their choice. Luckily for us, this 'Tuber showcased English Bay with a Blue Rodeo soundtrack.
