about

Taken from Shadows

lyrics

Wasn’t an easy birth
Smacked me head coming out
Made me rugged, shoulders broad
Ready to carry, ready to work
Foreign on me tongue
Dialect, disarm
Spot the incomer miles away
When I turned up knowing no-one
When I showed up knowing no-one

Colne Valley Hearts
Necklace of red
Colne Valley Hearts
Hand over heart over hand
Cold hands, warm hearts
Lighting up the cut tonight

Back o’dam I saw her
Translucent, barely there
Cradling her clutch of carrier bags
Lullabies sung to air
By the cenotaph
Smoked from inside out
Furrows deep as valley sides
Bejewelled with the kindest eyes
She has the kindest eyes

Smog stained stone
Makes us know we’re home
