about

Paul Dunn Ontario

In 2006, Paul stepped Out of the Shadows and caught the attention of Bryan Adams’ co-writer Jim Vallance. As the producer of iconic hits such as Cuts Like A Knife and Summer of 69, Vallance has an ear for talent.

“Great lyric perspective,” Vallance said after reviewing Paul’s I Don’t Wanna Write A Song. An “excellent song.”

This is honest music.

Track Name: I Don't Wanna Write a Song
I don’t wanna write a song that I wouldn’t sing all the time
To remind me of you and what I’m leavin’ behind
I won’t want an open door to the back of my mind
When I’m comin’ undone, headed for the sun,
I don’t wanna write a song.

I don’t want a memory cloudin’ up everything I do
Comin’ back to see if I’ve gotten over you
And if I got a prayer if I ever make it through
I’ll be goin’ it alone, on my own
I don’t wanna write a song.

Not a soulful lullaby
Or a ballad to make you cry

I could drink a bottle dry with a few of my friends
And I could howl at the moon ‘til I’m gone around the bend
I could find a tear to cry, ‘til my heart is on the mend
When a new lover calls, I’m gonna fall
I don’t wanna write a song.

Now the sun’s goin’ down and night shadows fall
And your ghost comes around and the night bird calls
I will turn to the dark
I will keep myself strong
I’m never givin’ in, oh not again
I don’t wanna write a song.
