Ravens 02:59
If I were a kingdom I’d come to you I’d come to you in the night If I had my wishes all come true You would stay at my side Ride like the wind Like a raven black And I’ll be right behind Whatever you say, I’m not going back We will fly We will fly If I were a castle, I’d stand tall I’d be so easy to find You won’t need a ladder to climb these walls I would let you inside Sing like a dove Like a raven black And wings will beat in time Whatever you say, you’re not going back We will fly We will fly If I were a ruler, I’d make a vow To never let you go I’d send all my people far and wide To bury all of your woe Call out to me Like a raven black And I will take you away Look at me now, I’m not holding back When I fly When I fly
2.
Forgiveness 04:50
Don’t walk away We have far to go This much I know We’ve got a lot of baggage But I’ll set it down If it will turn you around And I can’t change all the things that I’ve done If I could, I bet you wouldn’t run But I can’t go back to that anymore It gets so heavy Having weighted opinions of me It gets so lonely When you can’t understand what I mean I get so angry When I feel like I can’t say a thing It’s never right Sparks a fight Oh when is forgiveness a thing? And I can’t change all the things that I’ve done If I could, I bet you wouldn’t run But I can’t go back to that anymore
3.
Winter 03:13
Twas a night I won’t forget We huddled close like babes in winter Like the dew turned frost Clutching to barren oak trees My love was there Twas a morning I shan’t forget I kissed your mouth Felt your hands run through my hair Like a quivering arrow you shook My love was there I float my joy to you Beckon your grief to me to We shan’t forget these passings But we yearn to start anew
4.
Of all the money that e'er I spent I spent it in good company And all the harm that e'er I've done Alas, it was to none but me And all I've done for want of wit To memory now I can't recall So fill to me the parting glass Good night and joy be with you all Of all the comrades that e'er I've had They are sorry for my going away And all the sweethearts that e'er I've loved They would wish me one more day to stay But since it falls unto my lot That I should rise and you should not I'll gently rise and I'll softly call Good night and joy be with you all

about

These tracks marry whimsy and raw emotion. Most of the music was tracked live and was inspired by playing in sessions throughout Ireland.
