about

“The Return of God Vol. 1” is a concept album inspired by and designed for the upcoming film "The Return of God." The songs run the gamut of emotions. Haunting sounds of a siren's call open you to the album’s first track “I"; songs about truth and beauty follow with “A Moment” and “You”; and a pensive, emotional “It Is What It Is” balances out the ride. This multi-timbral album combines deep emotional lyrics with masterful musical performances. Greater than the sum of its parts, Ashley Beattie fronts an Oakville, Ontario collective effort that takes listeners from age 9 to 90 on a beautiful, musical journey to a special place which lies deep inside.

Track Name: I
I

lyrics by S. William Wallace

I woke up in the morning
To what I made at the dawning
I stretched out on the stars
That I had stretched out oh so far

I came to have a meaning
There was something I was needing
To give me a reason
For being

I called out on the sky
That made me so high
Beyond the answer why,
Whyyyy

I took the step toward creation
Basking in the revelation
If I had the patience
I would defend, to the end, to the end

I helped you make you what you are
I hope you go so far
But on you that depends
My friend my friend my friend

If you believe in me
I want you to be with me
Fill the hole within the hole
All that will pass, You already know
The words you have been sold
And so the story goes
So often has been sold
These words you have called
They’ve called
They’ve called
They’ve called
They’ve called

Track Name: Do You Believe
Do You Believe

lyrics by S. William Wallace

Waiting in the morning
While the grass is growing and the world is spinning in time
Hoping for the day that someone will say
That it's gonna work out fine
Work out fine
Believing in the dreamers
And the world’s bee keepers
And the honey that they do produce
Betting on the players
That they answer all the prayers
That were made by me and you
Me and you

Do You Believe, believe in me
Do you Believe, believe in me

Living in the summer
In all the daylights' wonder
While hiding underneath the shade
Walking in the wind as the rain begins.
To fall in on my day, on my day
Talking to the strangers
Believing in the dangers
That the world once did create
Hoping for the wisdom
of the little children
Hoping it's not too late
Not too late

Helping out the helpless
Who seem so selfish with their wants and needs
And we’re punishing the punishers
For the goodness of their deeds, of their deeds
Praying to the gods
Who always seem at odds
With my inner voice
Giving me suggestions, To answer all the questions
Denying freedom of choice, Freedom of choice

Track Name: Today
Today

lyrics by S. William Wallace

Was it just another day
Another day to waste away
Another day that I’d never say
What I wanted to say
Was it just the time was wrong
Or had the feelings come and gone
Would the sun rise within the dawn
That took so long

Bout a day
Bout a day
Bout a day
Bout a day
Like today
Like today
Like today
Like today

Seconds come in second’s chance
Minutes matter at a second glance
Moments hold such romance
That can last
A second chance
The hours seem so far away
The turning points that connect the day
The measurements that we have to pay
For a day like today

If I could write down all I thought
the words I heard, the words I forgot
the lot of my life
the lot of my life
if I could say what I wanted to say
the thoughts I thought and the dreams for which I pay
If I could say,
All I wanted to say
If you could see what I see
If I could be all I could be
All I could be all I could be
If I knew what I knew
If I could do what I want to see it through
And make it new and make it new
All I could do
All I could do
On a day
Like today
On a day
Like today

Do the hours just while away
Is there any more to say
About a day
Like today
On a day
Like today

Track Name: Dreams
Dreams

lyrics by S. William Wallace

Did you ever know
The dreams I dream
Can you write the words as I
Pull these strings

Waiting wandering
Lightning thundering
With thoughts I have come to bring
And words I cannot sing

Passing the time
With words that rhyme
No one can define

The simple sign
I sang in time
In a rhyme
In my mind

Rainbows falling
Worlds are calling
Ideas are stalling
I feel I am falling in my dreams
In my dreams

Pen to paper
the magic flavour
glorious saviour
Of our behaviour

No one can hear me scream

Could this have been a miracle

Something I’ve been looking for
In a dream
In a dream

Did you ever know
The dreams I dream
Can you write these words as I
Pull these strings

Track Name: Would You Kill Me
Would You Kill Me

lyrics by Charlie Jacklin and S. William Wallace

Why can’t you take little steps with me
Why can’t you take me anymore
Tell me was it something I said
Was it something I had done

If you can’t make em laugh, then you’d better make em cry
If you can’t break the chains, then you’ll never learn to fly
And if you don’t, make me strong
You push me to the ground

But would you kill me like I would
Would you kill me like I could
Would you kill me like I would
Would you kill me would you kill me?
(like I would)

Do you still want me
Like you once did
Your words they still haunt me
Like your touch, taste and kiss
And would you wait for me, my tenderness
You’ll always be the thought I can’t confess

But would you kill me like I would
Would you kill me like I could
Would you kill me, like I would
Would you kill me, would you kill me?

Oh I woke up to the madness
And everything was wrong
It brought out all the badness
When the money was all gone
There only seemed to be, one thing to be done (to be done)
Oh I woke up to the madness
And everything was wrong
It brought out all the sadness
When the money was all gone
There only seemed to be, one thing to be done (to be done)

But would you kill me, like I would
Would you kill me, like I could
Would you kill me, like I would
Would you kill me, would you kill me?
(Like I would)

Track Name: It Is What It Is
It Is What It Is

lyrics by S. William Wallace

I deny you as I lie to you
And tell you what you want
I feel a void within you
A hole within your heart
It is what it is
I destroy you as I employ you
And make you work for my want
I tease you just to displease you
And torment you with my taunt
It is what it is
I brought you what you wanted me to
The words you can’t forget
I stopped the voices and the choices
That were ringing in your head
It is what it is
I believe you as I deceive you
And some of you might regret
That you sold your soul, That you paid the toll
And you had no regret
It is what it is

Track Name: I Can't Be Me
I Can't Be Me
lyrics by S. William Wallace

I can’t just stand here
Every time I move
Something gets added
To my day
I can’t move from here
I can’t show no fear
I just wish it all
Would go away
I can’t speak of truth
For if I do, If I do
They don’t believe me
Anyway
I can’t touch you
I can’t feel
I can’t love you
I’m not real
I can’t see you
Can’t hear the sounds you make
I can’t feel you
Or the breaths I take
I cannot be, I cannot be
What you want me to be
I can’t be, I can’t be me
I can’t be me

Track Name: A Moment
A Moment

lyrics by S. William Wallace and Ashley Beattie

It's been so long since I've seen your face
And I don't know what to do
I’ll call you up, please come over
I want to spend a moment

To tell you all the stories
And sing about the glories,
Of me and you, of you and me
I’ll call you up, please come over
I want to spend a moment with you

I want to take a moment
To tell you all that you've meant
To tell you all the things you’ve meant to me

I want to take a moment
A moment that god sent
To tell you all that we could be

And I, breathe in
And I, breathe out
I know what we’re talkin’, talkin’ about

I want to take some time out
To tell you what it's all about
And what you really mean to me, really mean to me

I want to write down all the songs
To which we both can sing along
The songs that go on and on, And on

In the end, it’s what we wanted
In the end, baby we got it.

I want to scream out so loud

I want for us to tell all the crowd
I want to tell everyone what you’ve done for me

I want to raise the roof
and tell you the truth
Tell you everything that you and me
That you and me can be

It's been so long since I’ve seen your face
And I don't know what to do, to do
I’ll call you up, please come over
I want to spend a moment

I want to tell you all the stories
And sing about the glories
Of me and you, of you and me
I’ll call you up, please come over
I want to spend a moment with you

Track Name: You
You

lyrics by S. William Wallace

Oh the words, you choose
Make no mistake
Are the simple clues
Of what could break
And the love that waits
Within the hands of fate
That we can create

I really want to speak with you
But I don’t know what to say
I really want to be with you
Every single day
Every day, Every Day
I thought that I once knew you
But I didn’t know what I knew
I just have to tell you
That I don’t know what to do
About you, about you
So take a chance and tell me
What you really want
Your words will not offend me
Please tell me what you thought
About what you want, about what you want
But please believe me
No matter what you do
What you mean to me
And what I mean to you
I swear it’s true, I swear it’s true

Cuz I just wanna love ya
Yes I do
Cuz I just wanna love ya
And I swear it’s true

And as a final word
That I really hope you heard
What will be will be will be
And you’ll always be a friend to me
A friend to me, a friend to me

Track Name: Words
Words

lyrics by S. William Wallace

I’m trying to think of something
Something needs to be said
I’m trying to use words
That I know, that you’ve, never read

I’m trying to do the right thing
Do the best that I can
I’m trying to be a man
A man, a man, amongst men
As I live, as I am

And I know you, and you know me
And I’m pretty sure that you can see
These words were meant for me my friend
These words were meant for you to send
Ohhhh

I’m hoping and I’m dreaming,
And my thoughts can be deceiving
About what you’re reading
About what, you’re really dealing with

I’m scoping and I’m scheming
About all the reasons
I was believing
That all, I did, all had a reason,
To believe in

And I know you, and you know me
And I’m pretty sure that you can see
These words were meant for you my friend
These words were meant for me to send
Ohhhh

So gently turn the page
As it wipes away the stage
In this day that seemed so strange
And if I had the choice,
To express my inner voice

Oh this choice, I would make
Again and again
I’d do the same damned things, again
I’d say the same damned things, again

And I know you, and you know me
And I’m pretty sure that you can see
These words were meant for us my friend
These words were meant to be the end
Ohhhh

They were meant to be, the end.
