Tom Loiselle, one of our musical “cousins”

Tom Loiselle came up to join our Sinotte Loiselle Wisell gathering in Montreal on Jun 29, 2013.  He came with his wife, Paula and son, Christopher, from Rhode Island.

Christopher Paula and Tom Loiselle

Lunch at the Serafim was a great choice because they let us really “take over” the space. This allowed some of the Loiselle talent to entertain us.

Tom Loiselle entertained the group with some of his own music.

Here are the lyrics to one of the songs that he performed.

Stay with me for Awhile

Intro (Verse Progression)  (1x)
Verse 1
I can see the light in your eyes  when you smile it makes me happy
I can hear the sound of your voice  when you laugh it makes me happy
And when you touch my hand then I  understand you love me
And when I hold you close then you  understand I love you
Verse 2
I can feel the beating of your heart when we are lying here together
I can stare at you when I’m awake  admiring your beauty
When I caress your face and look  into your eyes you look so lovely
When you look at me and see the  love I have for you it makes you happy
Chorus 1
Won’t you stay with me for  awhile?
Won’t you play with me and make me  smile?
Won’t you stay with me for  awhile…? La, da, da, da, da, da…
Verse 3
You can see the light in my eyes  when I smile it makes you happy
You can hear the sound of my voice  when I laugh it makes you happy
And when I touch your hand then  you understand I love you
And when you hold me close then I  understand you love me
Chorus 2
Won’t you stay with me for  awhile?
Won’t you play with me and make me  smile?
Won’t you stay with me for  awhile…? La, da, da, da, da, da…
