about

Thomas Stajcer Halifax, Nova Scotia

From Halifax via hockey-stick making Hespeler, Ontario, Thomas Stajcer released his debut single last year, entitled "Sad Cowboy," a playful half autobiographical, half fantastical take on making the move East and what lays beyond.
Stajcer is currently working on his debut EP “Will I Learn To Love Again?” - a tour of doubt and regret that culminates in that ultimate question.

Track Name: Sad Cowboy
Runnin' out of Southern Ontario
Going as fast as my legs can go
Goodbye ma, goodbye daddy-o
I'm runnin' down home

But I can't afford the bus
Alone at the bar
Get a shot of whiskey
Smoke a few darts
Doin' nothin'
Dad gets annoyed
Son took a turn as a sad cowboy

Callin' on my folks like I need money
When it comes to favourite things that would be my least
Dad says get a job and my mother worries
I'm runnin' down East

And I can't afford the bus
Alone at the bar
Get a shot of whiskey
Smoke a few darts
Doin' nothin'
Dad gets annoyed
Son took a turn as a sad cowboy

When I hit the big-time it'll be OK
Things will change in dramatic ways
When Nashville comes callin' I believe I'll stay
At the end of the Trans-Canada Highway

"At this juncture in our narrative some things have changed for our hero, the Sad Cowboy. He may still drink whiskey 'cause he's still sad and, well, dad may still get annoyed 'cause dad's still dad. We all know how he can be. But unlike for the old man, our hero has started doing some things a little bit differently, namely..."

Get a new dog
Fight in a bar
Get a shot of whiskey
Break a few hearts
Singin' country
Ma's pride and joy
Son took a turn as a sad cowboy
Son took a turn as a sad cowboy
Son took a turn as a sad cowboy
Track Name: Love Me Now Or Never Again
I'm not a next-in-line, waiting 'round, take-my-time type of guy.
I want you, I need you right now. I know that's not fair.
You may be right, I may be going nowhere, but tonight I'm out like a light

Getting lost in the deep dark dusk
Drifting, I'll find my next home in the wind
Love me now or never again

Living on coffee and Heartbreaker, track after track.
I know I'm not offering much, but I won't take it back.
You may be right, this may be going nowhere, but tonight you're out like a light

Getting lost in the deep dark dusk
Drifting, find your next home in the wind
Love me now or never again
Soon I'll be leaving, never coming back
Too late, straight line, a matter of fact
Love me now or never again
Maybe I'll see you around the bend

Around, down the road in some bar in some town
In his arms, you look up to meet my gaze
Remember we had our day

Getting lost in the deep dark dusk
Drifting, find our next home in the wind
Love me now or never again
Soon I'll be leaving, never coming back
Too late, straight line, a matter of fact
Love me now or never again
Maybe I'll see you around the bend
