From the 2011 GMA Canada Album of the Year comes the release of the title track in this brand new video.

I was thrilled to team up with Director Jesse Blight (http:/www.jesseblight.com) to produce this video in the Fall of 2011. I was drawn immediately to Jesse's artistic stylings and his beautiful film and photography work. The final product is a testament to how well a song can be interpreted to tell a story on film. Jesse's vision for the video encompassed many of the themes and sentiments that I was striving to capture when I wrote the song in the summer of 2010.

2011 was an exciting year for me and I was grateful to have the support of FACTOR for the production of both the album, Carry Me Home and this subsequent video. In October, was deeply honoured to win 4 GMA Canada Covenant Awards including Album of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year. These artistic endeavours didn't come easily, and they didn't come without some uphill battles... but therein lies the essence of this song, Carry Me Home.

The musicians featured in this track are:
Ali Matthews ~ Guitar & Vocal
Rick Francis ~ Electric Guitars & Bass
Gary Craig ~ Drums
Mike Janzen ~ Piano
Jacob Moon ~ Harmony Vocal

The track was produced by Ali Matthews & Rick Francis at Rick Francis Productions in Stratford, Ontario.

Here are the lyrics:

Carry Me Home
Words and Music by Ali Matthews (c) 2010 SOCAN

This song is an orphan, it's sweet and its blue
This song tells a story too sad to be true
It lies on my pillow and it calls out for you
and soon it will carry me home

These boots came from Europe, made of leather so fine
Oh the miles they have travelled, oh the hills they have climbed
They're scuffed and they're worn but they're favorites of mine
and soon they will carry me home

(chorus)
Home, with eyes closed and heart open
Home, with a spirit that's broken
well maybe I was wrong
maybe I wasn't lost all along

Hold on to this moment, it's a bird in your hand
'cause this life will get stolen and turn to water and sand
but I have a Love, a Love so much more than I am
and soon it will carry me home

Home, with eyes closed and hearts open
home, with a spirit thats broken
well maybe I was wrong
maybe I wasn't lost all along
well maybe I was wrong
maybe you were right here all along

This song is an orphan, it's sweet and its blue
This song tells a story too sad to be true
It lies on my pillow and it calls out for you
and soon it will carry me home
