about

Victor Montequin Lake Mary, Florida

I've been playing music for 35 years and writing poetry for about the same amount of time. As a songwriter I've only recently felt I was good enough to publish. Hope you like it!

Track Name: Contradiction
I want to go this way
I want you hear to stay
So please don’t brush away my
Contradiction

I want you all my own
And to be left alone
Don't say you don't condone my
Contradiction

(chorus)
It's not hard to understand
I'm a woman and you're a man
And there's just one golden rule
I'm the empress, and you're the fool

I want to see the sky
But I don't want to fly
Oh please don't ask me why my
Contradiction

I want to break the chain
But keep you on a rein
Don't ask me to explain my
Contradiction

(chorus)
It's not hard to understand
I'm a woman and you're a man
Let me take you back to school
I'm the teacher, and you're the fool
Track Name: All Of Those Years
You saved my life
You helped me stand
For 20 years
You held my hand

And in your eyes
I saw my soul
From scattered parts
You made me whole

(chorus)
Through all of the fears
And all of the tears
I can't say I have regrets
For all of those years
The train kept rolling
Though the track disappeared
And although the ride was rough
You were there, for all of those years

As I think back
I know I'm blessed
To all I asked
All you said was yes

And though sometimes
Things hurt inside
You stayed here firmly
By my side

(chorus)

(bridge)
All of those years
Through the thunder and rain
Through the joy and the pain
You're still here
Track Name: Hold The Light
News may be grey, Andy
Words may be lost
Bridges washed out on that
River you crossed

Seems so uncertain
But it's time to hold tight
'Cause as the sun sets
We'll hold the light


Feelings will swirl on
What you may hear
Sad become hopeful and
Joy become fear

But while on your way
As you wonder what's right
If shadows obscure
We'll hold the light


(bridge1)
As you move toward
New roads every day
Just know you're not alone
We'll show you the way

(verse2)
Sky may be grey, Andy
Wind gives a chill
Some days it won't rain and
Some days it will

But Spring follows Winter
and day follows night
Peak out of the fog
You'll see the light

(bridge2...repeat last line/chords 3 times)
Cherish the day
Hold onto what's right
Keep your head up
With all of your might
If there are days when
The sun's not so bright
Just let out a call
We'll hold the light
Track Name: Gone Away
Sitting dazed and indistinct
Listening to the kitchen sink
Wondering if you've really gone away
Feeling that I'm on the brink
Thinking I could use a drink
Could it be you've really gone away

(Chorus)
And it seems cold and grey
But it happens every day
Just before you've said what you should say
They've gone away

Looking at your photograph
Times we cried and times we laughed
Did it really have to end that way?
Picking up my coat and shoes
Things we leave and things we lose
Wishing that these thoughts would go away

(Chorus)
But it seems cold and grey
That it happens every day
Just before you've said what you should say
They've gone away

(bridge)
Swirling with thoughts within my head
Stepping on feelings even though I lightly tread
Time stands so still, then slides away
Weights get lighter, things get brighter
Wrongs get righter, I breathe the air and I'm ok

Time has passed, it's been so long
The smile is here, the frown is gone
Remembering those special nights and days
And even as I sing this song
I know you've been here all along
You've left something inside me that has never gone away
