Away from the wind
The stormies come rolling in
With little know what
The morning will bring
A fall from the west
There’s easterlies and he’s holding his breath

The honest man stands
As the salt sea washes over his hands
Away to the south
She’s leaving
She’s leaving

And four months later
He’s ready to go
Back to the mainland
At the end of the show
Did she fall to her knees
When she heard your reprieve?

Down at the shore
He meets her once more
Searching her eyes
For a tell-tale sign
She smiles at him and his heart starts to sing


from From The Skein, released June 10, 2016
Written by Jenny Sturgeon. Featuring Jenny on guitar, Jonny Hardie on tenor guitar, Grant Anderson on double bass, Davy Cattanach on percussion, Simon Gall on xylophone.
