    “There is a deep embedded ache in Bousquet’s voice. You can feel it down in the trenches of his soul and through the crack in his voice.” – Redline Roots

    “On Into The Light Within Bousquet really separates himself as a songwriter from a very crowded field of excellent songwriters taking up camp in his home state. While he’s not afraid to crank up the electric guitar to prove a song’s point, it’s his more introspective moments, such as on “Gloria” that he really knocks it out of the park.” – Chip McCabe, Lonesome Noise

lyrics

THE LAST SAD SONG
I said, "Let's start a war"/But I don't wanna fight in this war anymore/I said, "It's for the cause"/But it's been so long I've forgotten what it was/"So long," said the Darkness/"Sail on 'til you find it"/I sold my soul, but I never even got paid/I lost myself in plans that never really got made/"So long," said the Darkness/"Don't quit 'til you find it"/I don't know what tomorrow brings/Will it relent? Or will it sting?/This is the last sad song I'm gonna sing/This is the last sad song I'll ever sing/Part time dreamers/Lonely, low tide lookers on the prowl/Late night brooders/We gaze at the moon as we go over the waterfall/"So long," said the Darkness/"Hold on 'til you find it"/I don't know what the morning brings/Will it relent? Or will it sting?/This is the last sad song I'm gonna sing/This is the last sad song I'll ever sing/"So long," said the Darkness/"Sail on until you find it"/I don't know what tomorrow brings/Will it relent? Or will it sting?/This is the last sad song I'm gonna sing/This is the last sad song I'll ever sing/This is the last sad song I'll never sing/This is the last sad song I'll forever sing/This is the last sad song . . . it's everything/"So long," said the Darkness/"Sail on 'til you find it!"
