about

I started writing this song while camping on Saltspring the other weekend. It was inspired by a small group of people harmonizing acoustically together but I ended up doing all the parts on my own at home. I'm not sure where the lyrics came from, I just sat down and wrote them out during recording. I suppose there's a lot in the news I've been reading and some of it just sounded right.

lyrics

in the light of the morning
under the eye of the sun hold your tongue
in the wind of the rain
through the fire and the pain hold your tongue
when the dead days come
and the ride is over hold your tongue

i cried, is the night so long?
i tried just to carry on
just to be unknown
and to go back home again

well you're waiting for me
and i ain't ever coming hold your tongue
i didn't get my pardon, got sent back to the warden hold your tongue
every night is a prayer
every day is a demon hold your tongue

i cried, is the night so long?
i tried just to carry on
just to be unknown
and to go back home again
