about

Petty Victories Toronto, Ontario

Petty Victories is a fusion of opposites. Front women Colleen Dauncey and Zoe Sky Jordan have rooted their sound in driving, melody synth lines and smoldering yet sweet harmonies. Though their voices are like night and day, together they are often mistaken for one, earning them a reputation for pleasantly surprising their audiences.

Petty Victories second album is set for release early 2013.

Track Name: What Does It Cost
It’s the work of a darkened overpass

It’s the work of a thief in the night

It’s the worth of a love that just won't last

Calling out


Now you are so lost I

Don’t know where to begin

Or what it costs
What does it cost to win


It's the burn of the one you can't get past

It's the turn of the leaves overnight

If the words of the maker come too fast

Wait it out, wait it out

How we got so lost I

Don’t know but I still fight

What does it cost

What does it cost to be right  

Run the water through your hands

While you're wondering

You were doing it right by the way

You were doing it right by the way

It's the burn of the one you can't get past

It's the turn of the leaves overnight

If the words of the maker come too fast

Wait it out, wait it out

How we got so lost I

Don’t know but I still fight

What does it cost

What does it cost to be right  
Track Name: Brave Like You
You say 
that you are brave

And I am brave like you

For now
 I’ll walk assured
Tarnished by the indifference of the room

Don’t let me see you hide behind your hate now

It’s the only night to come and let your body loose

Don’t let me see you hide behind your hate now

In the low lit light the anger becomes diffused


You say 
it won’t be long

before we get to choose

For now the children shave their heads

and grow like thieves from the silence of the room

Don’t let me see you hide behind your hate now

It’s the only night to come and let your body loose

Don’t let me see you hide behind your hate now

In the low lit light the anger becomes diffused

Track Name: Tremble
Lost my world at sea

Reading the fine print slowly

Ages, those sour pages

Your pretty lines confuse me

The colour drained from your eyes

One look would scar you on the inside

I know you left the letter unsigned but

You can’t deny that

You saw me tremble, say what you gotta say

Two together down in the subway

Through the window, can you really tell me that it’s
Not what it looks like

Lost, you move beside

Some healing heartbeat

Closing in on your pride now

Making your life uneasy

The colour drained from the sky

One look could wreck the love you sail by

I know you left the letter unsigned but

You can’t deny that

You saw me tremble, say what you gotta say

Two together down in the subway

Through the window, can you really tell me that it’s
Not what it looks like

You say she is a friend of yours
You try to pretend
But I’ve got friends

I know how to be friends
I can tell you’re not friends
Maybe we should be friends

You saw me tremble, say what you gotta say

Two together down in the subway

Through the window, can you really tell me that it’s
Not what it looks like
Track Name: Silent City
Frozen
In a silent city
Steps from the highway
You’re following
You chase a 100 silver pins across the map
You’ll find a way
You’ll find a way to make it back

Let this last love stay here in the crowd
Nothing temporary can get to you now

Wait for the lights
In a silent city
Not a soul in sight
And you know you can
You got no motive you’re the victim and the crime
Don’t shoot to wreck them
It just helps you pass the time

Let this last love stay here in the crowd
Nothing temporary can get to you now

You chase a hundred silver pins across the map
You’ll find a way, you’ll find a way to make it back
You chase a hundred silver pins across the map

Let this last love stay here in the crowd
Nothing temporary can get to you now
Track Name: Where We Go
No one's here when we're here

No one's here when we're here

In the middle of the night I feel it

In the middle of the coldest night




I don't know why we were brought here

I don't know why we were left here alone

I don't know why we were brought here



No one goes where we go

No one goes where we go

In the middle of the night I hear it

In the middle of the silent night


I don't know why we were brought here

I don't know why we were left here alone

I don't know why we were brought here



Don't tell them where we are, I like it here with you

On the floor where we lie I feel the cold hard truth

Our world is still but for the creak of footsteps up above

They bang on the walls in time to the pounding of your heart on mine love

No one knows what we know

No one knows what we know

In the middle of the night he told me

In the middle of the holy night


I don't know why we were brought here

I don't know why we were left here alone

I don't know why we were brought here


I don't know why we were left here alone

Track Name: Violet Dreams
I can see her, where she cut her hair

In the backyard, on a lawn chair

Money on the table, smoke in the air


Soon she'd send us somewhere far away

To the concrete and the slow parade

A city that was stable, like a fairytale

Dreams of India
And my mother’s wish

Violent dreams of India
In the warmth of her kiss


Tell the doctor somethings really wrong

If you see him, say you came alone
Land of fables in the end


In the alley they will whisper to you

If you don’t fight, they will take her from you

If you tell the doctor, there’ll be hell

Dreams of India, and my mother’s wish

Violet dreams of India, in the warmth of her kiss

Still don’t remember what I did
Take it back where it all started

Still don’t remember what I did
Take it back where it all started


Dreams of India, in the warmth of her kiss
Track Name: Til We Lost
Late at night did I hear you come in
From the dark in the alley
I swear I heard you stumbling

Can you call me when you get there somehow
Can you call me so I know you got there

Oh baby I don’t wanna lose you

We ran till we lost our voices

Calling to the night

A fear of the darkness coming

say you’ll follow me there
say you’ll follow me there




I lay last night till I heard you come in
From the dark in the kitchen you look like you’ve been rumblin’



Can’t you call me when you’re staying out late

Can’t you call me I can’t get to sleep

baby I feel I’m gonna lose you



We ran till we lost our voices

Calling to the night

A fear of the darkness coming

say you’ll follow me there
say you’ll follow me there



Never take your word take your word
, by now

It’d be better for you better for me
To let you know that I would
Never take your word take your word
, by now

It’d be better for you better for me
To let you know
Track Name: One Day
One day they'll come for me
Take my heart deep in the ground

Follow me down with a key

Leave my heart where it won't be found



One day the sun goes black

Shade of the strength we lack

Follow me down to the beach

Feel that sky just out of reach

With you I'm something worth saving

A cold branch that's waiting, waving

With you I'm something worth saving

The dawn we're creating, craving

One day they'll come for me
Take my heart deep in the ground

Follow me down with a key

Leave my heart where it won't be found

With you I'm something worth saving

A cold branch that's waiting, waving

With you I'm something worth saving

The dawn we're creating, craving



One day the sun goes black

Shade of the strength we lack

Follow me down to the beach

Feel that sky just out of reach

With you I'm something worth saving

A cold branch that's waiting, waving

With you I'm something worth saving

The dawn we're creating, craving
