about

I actually started my magic and music career back home in 1970's Montreal, using the stage-name "Shawn Stevens", because I liked Shawn Phillips' mystical image, and the music of Cat Stevens. As a solo act and with only my acoustic Aria, I did colleges, Parks and Recreation events, and coffee-houses in and around my Montreal. Never reaching the musical heights of my drummer father Lou Likey who put me through college with his career, (he made quite a name for himself back then) he bought me my first guitar (the Aria) at Steve's Music Store in downtown Montreal, as well as my second guitar, a lovely nylon-stringed one from Pascal, a hardware store near our home in Cote-des-Neiges!
The songs on this album formed the core of my concerts, along with cover-tunes by Cat Stevens, Dan Hill, Supertramp, Meat Loaf, and others. Enjoy!

Track Name: Goddess of the Sea
Way beneath the ocean, upon a bed of pearls,
Guarded by some swordfish, seaweed crowns her golden curls.

She was Neptune's princess, nobody's friend,
As the depths were meant to be, she was Goddess of the Sea!

Starfish shine in 14 karats, pull her in her stingray coach,
Sprayed in colors bright and bold,
She was peace and she was war,
She opens and closes doors!
She is bright and she is not, she is heaven and she is more.
Upon tomorrow hold her close.

She struts into a party, with others like her too,
A glance into the mirror, never shows her what is true.
Never show her, never shows her what is true.

Way beneath the ocean, upon a bed of pearls.
Track Name: Pikcher Land
The castle stands tall upon the hill,
Icicles glisten off its peaks,
Rainbows stretch across the sky,
Touched by the warmth of the sun.

ooo,ooo,ooo
ooo,ooo,ooo

And the light spreads across the land,
And love permeates the world.

Children make snowmen in the yard,
While feathers float down to the ground,
The sun makes diamonds in the snow,
While the wind whistles at the clouds.

ooo,ooo,ooo
ooo,ooo,ooo

And the light spreads across the land,
And love permeates the world.

The moon illuminates the dark,
Bringing wisdom to all.
The stars twinkle in the night,
Some dance, some fall.

ooo,ooo,ooo
ooo,ooo,ooo

And the light spreads across the land,
And love permeates the world.
Track Name: Quazar
La, La, La...

Don't you wish you live on Quazar,
Far away from earth?
You can feel it brightly shining,
This star we call our home!

Our star, our star,
Ever-blazing star!
Our star, blazing star,
Ever-burning light!

La, La, La...

Can't you feel the starlight shining,
From here we call our home?
Warmth and all those good-times rising,
Are bound to be our own!

Our star, our star,
Ever-blazing bright!
Our star, burning light,
Shines throughout the night!

La, La, La...
Track Name: The Visitor
I have come from an interstellar, distant-burning star.
Home, far away, looks like a tiny twinkling, diamond-studded dot.

Please take me home to my world I once knew.
Where sky was blue, grass was green, and God was new.

Where is the love that I thought was present here on planet earth?
Where is the love that I thought was present everywhere in space?

Please take me home to my world I once knew.
Where sky was blue, grass was green, and God was new.

Please take me home to my world I once knew.
Where sky was blue, grass was green, and God was new.
