ships out within 3 days
Seventeen days until the lights go out
Across Dunvegan and spreading south
Over the breen and the multi hue
Throughout the kingdom, the power is torn in two
And, once the river has swallowed the key
To our stairways and rooms for sleep
Climbed the walls and the timber frames
Will the windows breathe the air again?
The winds they blow but on we listen
To our rushing minds and drifting hearts
Be still, and gather up some time we killed
Between the lark and the lonely tree
Floats the child of Sophie Jean
She filled her lungs in the undertow
And left her life and love for wilds and woe
The winds they blow and tides are lifting over us
And through our drifting hearts and minds
Be still, won't you gather up some time that we have killed?
Bring back old trends
Sharpen senses, fix and mend
Restore the life to the lonely tree
I wrap my arms around upon the sea

A beautiful, haunting ballad, wonderfully done. This is a originally a protest song about the Iraq war by Tom Waits, but here it sounds like a traditional English folk/Irish ballad. Don't miss it, it's a keeper. David Goggin
