Quebec based, soulful platinum singer-songwriter Bobby Bazini will release his sophomore full-length release, Where I Belong May 27.

Since signing to Universal Music Canada in 2013, Bazini has been working hard on the follow-up to his hugely successful platinum-selling independent debut album, Better In Time (2010) that delivered his smash-hit “I Wonder”.

Last Fall, Bazini took the trip of a lifetime when he grabbed his guitar, packed up his car and left a small Montreal suburb for the Golden State to record with legendary producer Larry Klein. Five days later, he was in Los Angeles having breakfast with the iconic producer and jumping right into the recording process at the renowned Village Recorder that has hosted some of Bazini’s heroes – Bob Dylan, Marvin Gaye and Johnny Cash. Where I Belong was recorded with a studio filled with some of Bazini’s favourite musicians including, Booker T (organ), Jack Ashford (percussion) and Jay Bellerose (drums). What resulted is a collection of live-sounding Folk/Country and Soul songs that Bazini is excited to share. The first single from the album is “Heavy Love”.

The title track features Bazini singing, “I’m a dreamer, a dreamer dreams you know. There’s so much time to lose, so many roads to choose, sometimes I just wanna stay home and live a normal life where I belong.”

“As the song says, “I’m a dreamer” and I have dreamed for a very long time that I would go to California to produce a record with some of my heroes,” says Bazini. “I have been planning this trip my entire life and I can’t believe that I had this opportunity to record with such amazing musicians.”

To celebrate the release of Where I Belong, Bazini is hitting the road this summer through fall / winter.

Lyrics

Heavy Love

(Bobby Bazini)

When you’re not here the sun gets dark
It gets so cold around my heart
So happy-hearted when you’re here
I’m about to tweet the way I feel

When I’m not here and we’re apart
It gets so lonely in our hearts
I’m feeling low down when you’re gone
But still it makes me write a song

You’re everything
You’re everything
Every man would every dream of
Your love hits heavy like a stone

I’m gonna climb up to the sun
Just ‘cause it hasn’t yet been done
I’ll blow you kisses from up above
The crazy things I’d do for love

You’re everything
You’re everything
Every man would every dream of
Your love hits heavy like a stone

I need your love
I need your love
Give me heavy love
I need your love
I need your love
Give me heavy love
(Repeated)

Cherish Our Love

(B. Bazini / P. Ranallo)

Listen to me darling,
Listen to me..

Baby I want to be your man
Is it hard to understand?
I’d let it all go now just to stay here with you

‘Cause now it seems like things have changed
And I find myself all alone again
Wandering about, I’m going to lose my mind

I’ll cherish our love and I’ll surrender
I’ll cherish our love
I’ll cherish our love
And I’ll be your man

Living with our hearts of glass
I’m working harder baby with all the means I have
I can’t walk over water, but I would try for you
Yes I’d do anything for you baby

Sipping on our dreams one sip at a time
Baby I know how it drives you mad
But please won’t you just give me some time

You know it’s hard for me to leave too
So just hold on darling
And if you hold on, baby hold on, hold on to me

I’ll cherish our love and I’ll surrender
I’ll cherish our love
I’ll cherish our love
And I’ll be your man
I’ll be your man
I swear I’ll be your man baby
I’ll be your man
Give me one more chance to show you baby
I’m begging you darling
I’ll be your man
Won’t you hear me baby…

Cold Cold Heart

(B. Bazini)

You got a cold cold heart
You got a cold cold heart
Girl you’re freezing my lips
With your voodoo magic kisses
You got a cold cold heart
Won’t you free me

You got a cold cold soul
You got a cold cold soul
Thought you were my little angel
At least I thought you could keep me warm
But you got a cold cold soul honey
Won’t you free me

Oh baby you got a heart so cold baby
You’re freezing my summer days
And you’re just way to cold for me
I need your burning rays

You got a cold cold heart
You got a cold cold heart
Girl you’re freezing my lips, my lips
With your voodoo magic kisses
You got a cold cold heart
Won’t you free me

Oh wont you free me baby
Oh wont you free me baby
Oh wont you free me baby
You gotta free my soul
Your love is taking a toll on me

I’ll let you win this war baby
If that’s what you want but free me darling
Seems like you’re wanting more
When you know you had it all
Now don’t you try to steal what can’t be bought ‘cause

I wanted to build my whole world around you
But I can’t let you make my heart blue
I wanted to build my whole world around you
But I can’t let you make my heart blue
(repeated)
I wanted to love you
I wanted to love you
I wanted to love baby
Won’t you hear me ?

Bubblegum

(B. Bazini / C. Stone / M. C. Ross)

Girl I don’t wanna go too fast
Push you like I know you don’t like
But baby I just can’t hold back
Just feel I’m gonna lose my mind

Your body makes me lose control
Your purple lips just turn me on
So chew me like Bubblegum
Or tie me to a cannonball

I can’t stop this feeling
I can’t stop this feeling
I can’t stop this feeling
I can’t stop this feeling
I want you, you baby

So mama let me taste your fire
I just wanna take you higher
I’m gonna make our souls ignite
The thought just makes me keep on rhyming

I know it’s early now so let’s go out
You and I will paint this town
But I can’t wait to get you home
You know we gonna get it on

I can’t stop this feeling
I can’t stop this feeling
I can’t stop this feeling
I can’t stop this feeling
I want you, you baby

Have you ever felt this way before?
I have never ever felt this way before
And I want more, I want more of this feeling baby, baby
I want more, I want more of this feeling

Where I Belong

(B. Bazini)

I was dreaming of sailing away
to let my heart lead the way
Truth is I was younger than today
I didn’t know where I belonged

I was wondering what I’d find on my way
Love or loneliness my heart was not afraid
and I’ve been through bad times, but I found my way
When you found me and now I know
Where I belong
Where I belong
Where I belong
Where I belong

I’m a dreamer
A dreamer dreams you know
Now there’s so much time to lose
Too many roads to choose
Sometimes I just wanna lie here and live a normal life
Where I belong
Where I belong
Where I belong
Where I belong

I was dreaming of sailing away
to let my heart show me the way,
But lately I’ve been wanting to stay,
Stay with you where I belong
Where I belong
Where I belong
Where I belong
Where I belong

Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of The City

(M. Price / D. Walsh)

Ain’t no love in the heart of the city
Ain’t no love in the heart of town
Ain’t no love and it’s sure ‘nuff a pity
Ain’t no love ‘cause you ain’t around

When you were mine
Oh, I was feeling good
‘Cause you lovlied up
This whole neighbourhood

But now that you’re gone
You know the sun don’t shine
From the city hall to the county line
That’s why I said

Ain’t no love in the heart of the city
Ain’t no love in the heart of town
Ain’t no love and it sure is a pity
Ain’t no love ‘cause you ain’t around

Every place that I go
You know it seems so strange
Without you there
Oh things have changed

The nights are cold
There’s a blanket of gloom
Another teardrop falls
In my lonely room

I said ain’t no love
In the heart of the city
Ain’t no love in the heart of town
Ain’t no love and it’s sure ‘nuff a pity
Ain’t no love ‘cause you ain’t around

And now that you’re gone
You know the sun don’t shine
From the city hall
To the county line, I said

Ain’t no love in the heart of the city
Ain’t no love in the heart of town
Ain’t no love, it sure is a pity
Ain’t no love cause you ain’t around
‘Cause you ain’t around

Ain’t no love in the heart of the city
Ain’t no love in the heart of this town
Ain’t no love, it sure is a pity
Ain’t no love cause you ain’t around

I’m Gonna Be Your Man

(B. Bazini)

I’m tired of crying alone in the dark
Still you smile every time you break my heart
And when the sun rises you’re back again
‘Cause you know I’m gonna be your man

You know I’m gonna be your man
When you’re mine and when you ain’t
I’ll light the fire and I’ll wash the rain
You know I’m gonna be your man

Now our days they’re getting rough
You say I’m on your mind from time to time
But it’s never enough
Then I’ll say that you can always come back again
And that I’m always gonna be your man

Go on now make me cry
But baby I might just die
Won’t you just love me again?
for one more night
Just open your heart
Open your heart to me baby!

And you know I’m gonna be your man
When you’re mine and when you ain’t
I’ll light the fire and I’ll wash the rain
You know I’m gonna be your man

Take Me Home

(B. Bazini)

The record player is scratchin’ out an old old country tune
I take your hand and ask you to dance
and say ‘‘Don’t worry if I’m leavin’ soon’’
‘Cause girl you take me home,
Every time girl you take me home

I left home on a sad sad sunday
I blew you a kiss and whispered I’ll miss you too
And it breaks my heart to leave you alone
But I swear I’ll come back when the fire burns again
‘Cause girl you take me home
Every time girl you take me home
‘Cause girl you take me home
Every time girl you take me home

I’m headed out west with a tune in my heart
Got rhymes in my blood and whiskey in my head
I ain’t got no money but I’ve got love
And a whole bunch of kisses I’ve got to spare
Girl they take me home
Every time ‘Cause girl you take me home
Girl you take me home
Every time girl you take me home

I’ll be home, I’ll be home, I’ll be home, I’ll be home with you
I’ll be home in a little while
I’ll be home, I’ll be home, I’ll be home, I’ll be home with you
I’ll be home in a little while
‘Cause girl you take me home
Every time girl you take me home
Girl you take me home

Down On My Knees

(B. Bazini / T. Izzo)

I roam the city in the dead of night
I miss the time when it was new and bright
My spirits and the sky in shades of black
And I’m messed up again

If I resign to stay that’s when I lose myself
‘Cause nothing ever feels the same
Should know better but I keep coming back again
I don’t know why

I wanna run but you won’t set me free
Thought I could run instead I’m down on my knees
And it’s not, no it’s not right, it’s not right, yeah it’s not right
That I’m down on my knees

I’d drive back home with my broken heart
If only I had somewhere to go
I guess I’ve been wishing upon unlucky stars
All this time I should have known

If I resign to stay that’s when I lose myself
‘Cause nothing ever feels the same
Should know better but I keep coming back again
I don’t know why

Won’t you set me free
Won’t you set me free
Won’t you set me free
Won’t you set me free
I’m down on my knees

Worried Again

(B. Bazini)

I’m worried again
My head is on fire
I’m on a ride, a wild one
I keep on escaping
It keeps on staying close behind
And I drift away

My days turn black when your tears echo in my soul
I get worried again
My faith is still there but it’s just not fair if we drift apart
And I get worried again

I’m worried again
Our hearts are on fire
But how can we hide them from the pouring the rain?
I keep on stumbling
Is there a light up ahead?
I just need somebody
I can’t walk alone

My days turn black when your tears echo in my soul
I get worried again
My faith is still there but it’s just not fair if we drift apart
And I get worried again

I get worried again, I get worried again
Without you, Without you
I get worried again, I get worried again
Without you, Without you
I’m worried now, I’m worried now
I need you baby, I need you baby
I’m worried now, I’m worried now
I need you baby, I need you baby
I need you…

There Ain’t No Words

(B. Bazini)

There ain’t no words
I could say now
To bring you back
How can I make you stay?

There ain’t no words
I could write
Nothing pretty
Nothing unkind

There ain’t no words
To explain it
And baby it hurts when I try

There ain’t no words
On my mind but I love you
I love you, I really love you
More than words can say

There ain’t no words
On my mind, but I love you
I love you, I really love you
But you already know that…

I love you darling
I love you, what else can I say
I love you, for more than words can say…

Wish You Were Here

(B. Bazini / O. Page)

I wish you were here
to feel the wind blow
You’d say the sun can heal
A broken soul

I wish you were here
to see me grow
But our fates are sealed
That I know

I wish you were here
I wish dreams could wait
For they don’t feel real
When you are away

I wish you were here
To show me the way
When I can’t see clear
When I get astray

I wish you were here
‘Cause I’m feeling low
The sun can’t heal
My broken soul

I wish you were here
When my wings unfold
But our fates are sealed
You taught me so

I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
(Repeated)

To Love Somebody (Bonus Track)

(Barry & Robin Gibb)

There’s a light
A certain kind of light
That never shone on me
I want my life to be lived with you
Lived with you
There’s a way everybody say
To do each and every little thing
But what does it bring
If I aint got you, aint got? Hey babe

You don’t know what it’s like, baby
You don’t know what it’s like

To love somebody
To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I love you

In my brain
I see your face again
I know my frame of mind
You ain’t got to be so blind
And I’m blind, so so sorrily blind
I’m a man, can’t you see
What I am
I live and breathe for you
But what good does it do
If I ain’t got you, ain’t got? Hey babe

You don’t know what it’s like, baby
You don’t know what it’s like
To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I love you

You don’t know what it’s like, baby
You don’t know what it’s like
To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I love you

You don’t know what it’s like, baby
You don’t know what it’s like
To love somebody
To love somebody
The way I love you
