It is my honour to share the latest single, Starlight, from the new album Night Sky (March 23 2018).
The storm has come, and nothing will be as it was, and was, and was. It is time to mourn the losses, to leave this place, and to lead onwards, out, and through.
My darling my darling I can’t let you in
Dearly departed are most of my kin
My love and my lover I bid you adieu
Regret only that I can’t travel with you
And what of my mother I haven’t the words
I’ve only this saucer and cup that was hers
My brother my brother who won’t speak my name
The shame that I’ve done to you you’ve done the same
By only the starlight I follow the line
Made by the river and carved out by time
I look to the willow that grows in the sand
Turning with sunlight the air from the land
