about

Kimberley and The Collect Callers Toronto, Ontario

Kimberley Ann Clark Sedore - making-up songs as Kimberley and the Collect Callers - understands that freedom comes at a price and that just because something doesn't "cost" anything doesn't mean that there isn't a cost associated with it.
... Bringing us to Free Ain't Cheap, a debut album inspired by love, insomnia, fires big and small, sky light, and new beginnings.

Track Name: Long Way To Go
The sky is the prettiest shade of blue,
and I'm singing all alone to you...

The branches of the trees of reaching high and they're spreading wide,
they've got no leaves...

The first star is shining bright,
it's so early in the night...

We've got a long way to go -
We've got a long way to go,
We've got a long way to go.

We've got a long way to go -
We've got a long way to go,
We've got a long way to go.
Track Name: House Fire Song
Had a house, burnt to the ground,
sparks flew high, ashes all around

I was at work when I heard the news,
What would I have kept if I had to choose?

Well, we've got the dogs and our love's still alive,
We're gonna gather a crowd and get organized

Going on down to the big hotel,
set up an auction and drink like hell

It's a good damn thing we live in this town
'Cause when the shit hits the fan you see the love go around.
Track Name: Colour Song (or Why I can't sleep)
If you were red, I'd like that colour best.
If you were green, I'd like that colour best.
If you were orange, or pink, I'd like that colour best.
If you were blue, I'd hold on to you.

If you were quick, I'd like that speed the best.
If you were slow, I'd like that pace the best.
If you were right on time, I'd like that time the best.
If you were blue, I'd hold on to you.

If you're worried, well then I am worried, too.
If you're sleepy, I'll lay wide awake beside you.
Just wait 'til morning when you splash your eyes my way,
I can't wait to see what colour you are today.

'Cause if you're red, I like that colour best.
And if you're green, I like that colour best.
And if you're orange, or pink, I like that colour best
If you're blue, I'll hold on to you.
Track Name: Real Damn Happy
I was real damn happy to meet you went I did,
So damn happy, I couldn't keep it hid.
I wrote you a letter and into your mailbox it slid.

You give me a word, I hear a song,
You give an inch, and a mile it grows long,
Loaves and fishes is an old story of a magic man,
Making something out of nothing is doing more than I can.

There is time in the future, there's time in the past
There's time on that watch, and there's time in my glass,
They say the world is a bottle, that may be so,
I'm thirsty, so if you've got some, be sure to let me know.
Track Name: Sliver Moon
I was just about to go back
to my dirty old ways
When I looked up
and saw the moon.

It was one of those moons,
just a sliver in the sky
Like a cup or bowl
or something waiting to be filled
with who knows what
Or maybe it had just been emptied,
it's really hard to say
But visions like these
you just don't get 'em every day

So I said to my puppy dog
"Hey, Zoey baby, let's take this next snowdrift together,
it's just you and me tonight
and our timing couldn't be better"
And when I say "snow", oh
I mean the real thing
When I say "snow",
I mean the real thing.

I was just about to go back
to my dirty old ways
When I looked up
and saw the moon.
Track Name: I am so sleepy but I can't get to bed, where are you?
I am so sleepy but I can't get to bed, where are you?
(repeated as many times as necessary)
Track Name: Late Bloomer
Last ear of corn,
grown green, growing tall
Surrounded by brown stalks,shorter,
not so good to eat,
but oh, so excellent at supporting
the glory
of that last great
green cob of corn
Growing up
standing tall
absorbing the sun rays that fall
Framing the blue sky
not too far from the road
so all those passing by
can feast an eye
and learn the story of the late bloomer

Yes this is the story of the late bloomer

We learn the story of the late bloomer
Track Name: Tinder Song
It's only tinder burning, I've gotta find bigger wood,
But until then (x2)

I'm going to let this small fire blaze and bright the night the way,
That only tinder could (x2)
Track Name: Done Me Right
You make my day,
You make my night,
You make my tomorrow bright,
You are my man,
and you've done me right.
Track Name: Tall Tale
Chipmunk's tail, sticking straight up there,
Squirrel got a bushy tail, flicking 'round everywhere,
Hunting dog pointing fast when she gets that scent on the air,

I've got a tall tale to tell,
Starts in heaven, goes down to the depths of hell,
Saved by a fishing boat made out of a sea shell,
Now I'm hear to sing for you a spell.
