about

A short while ago, I came upon a piece of graffiti spray-painted in an alleyway just off Broadway and Granville here in Vancouver. I thought: hey, that would make a great title for a song, and so I wrote it down in my notebook and continued on my way.

Some time passed, and then another thought occurred: hey, why not ask some of my favorite singer-songwriter friends to pen a tune using the line as a lyric?

And so “Love Is My Alibi” was born.

As you can hear, the artists on this compilation are so deserving of wider recognition it’s ridiculous. I hope that this record will help light up their careers even brighter than they already are.

So take a listen, check out their websites, share with your friends, pay what you can. All proceeds are shared between the artists, and you can pay more than the suggested price, of course — unless you have an alibi of your own... !

Track Name: Greg Valou - (Love is My) Alibi
You asked me
To account for my whereabouts
But none would even say
That I had ever gone
Jealously
Interrogating me, oh
But love
Love is my alibi
Track Name: Heidi McCurdy - Love Is My Alibi
When I get to Heaven, Heaven
When I get to Heaven
I won’t be moodier, moodier than you

When I get to Heaven, Heaven
When I get to Heaven
I won’t be putting my foot in my mouth
Then trying to get it out

Because love is my alibi
Love is my alibi

When I get to Heaven, Heaven
When I get to Heaven
I won’t be sweeping up my own mess
Sweeping up after anybody else

When I get to Heaven, Heaven
When I get to Heaven
I won’t be ambushed by the fear
of my reflection in the mirror

Because love is my alibi
Love is my alibi
Track Name: John Buchanan - Love Is My Alibi (Lojong Blues)
Sinking down, way low
Is the only way you’re ever gonna go
To get to that promised land, you forget yourself
In just a little time, they gonna forget your name
So put out of your mind all your fortune and fame
And lift everybody high above yourself

Love is my alibi
I don't ask why
Love is my alibi
I don't ask why
I don't ask why

May I see you, as only I can do
A golden jewel, ever so hard to find
A golden jewel, for pointing out my mind
To give you all, to secretly take away
Is the only way I know how to pray
And lift everybody high above myself

Love is my alibi
I don't ask why
Love is my alibi
I don't ask why
Love is my alibi
I don't ask why
I don't ask why

I turned to you, hoping to get some help
But instead you shot me down dead
May I see you as being on my side
May I see you as my holy guide

You did me wrong, you shoulda did me right
But I'd rather sing this song, than get into a fight
And keep wishing for you, every delight
Track Name: Theda Phoenix - Love Is My Alibi (She Can Fly)
I wake suddenly, drenched in cold sweat
Your voice still ringing in my ear
Turn my head and catch my breath
cause its not you sleeping here

Thunder cracks, the wind howls
Branches knock the window pane
I slip silently from his grasp
For you are all that my heart craves

Love is my alibi
Love is the reason why
I’ll never return, for I would surely die
Why would a dove stay caged when she can fly

I run toward the waters edge
Your voice calling on the wind
Full moon shines alighting my path
The scent of you draws me in

Envelop me in your open arms
Feel your breath upon my face,
Surrender all that I once was
To spread my wings and exclaim

Love is my alibi
Love is the reason why
I’ll never return, for I would surely die
Why would a dove stay caged when she can fly

I never knew what was missing
till you arrived on my shore
Now two doves fly together
I know what my heart was longing for

Love is my alibi
Love is the reason why
I’ll never return, for I would surely die
Why would a dove stay caged when she can fly
Track Name: Kelly Haigh - LuV iS My ALiBi
When they ask me where you've gone,
I'll say I do not know
And when they find you, I will cry
How you got down there, I'll never know
I was in love when you disappeared
Love was with me when you were set free
I was in love, I was with love
Love is my alibi
A tragic end, and a mystery

When they ask me why you left,
I'll say I do not know
And when they find you, I will cry
How you got down there, I'll never know
I was in love when you disappeared
Love was with me when you were set free
I was in love, I was with love
Love is my alibi
A tragic end, and a mystery
A tragic end, and a mystery
Track Name: Terry Townson - Love Is My Alibi
I acted such a fool
Tryin' to be cool
I broke my own rule
Old enough enough to know
Not my best side to show
Never meant to be cruel

Love, Love is your alibi
I want to believe it's the reason why
Love, Love is your alibi
Tell me the truth I won't say good-bye

I have no excuses no real reasons why
I did what i did cause baby I'm just a typical guy
But being that guy wasn't part of my plan
'cause I can do better let me, let me prove that I can

Love, Love is your alibi
I want to believe it's the reason why
Love, Love is your alibi
Tell me the truth I won't say good-bye.

Love is your alibi
I want to believe it's the reason why
Love is my alibi
Tell me the truth I won't say good-bye
Track Name: Meshe - Love Is My Alibi (Sorin's Theme)
The sound of the rain
Falling hard on umbrellas
The rustle of leaves underfoot
My landlord is there, and he's raking the leaves
He says that he feels that it's hard on his knees
I feel a long, winter coming
Then a long, comes spring
To do it again and again and again...

Love is my alibi...
