Track Name: Katherine Cove
Old roads to take you home

through these foreign fields where you awoke at dawn

to a golden change, the warmth in stones;

a slow thaw to this winter of war.


For Katherine Cove. Katherine Cove.

Some day soon I shall return, my love.


All the widows flock to where the church bells sound,

My keepsakes worn down in my hands

And the names get noted through the towns.

All of your sons are blooded now.


Katherine Cove. Katherine Cove.

Some day soon I shall return, my love.

I’m so far from God here, so far from home.

In my weakest hours I kept you close.


She is within me, she is my place of rest

Drawing closer now with every step

and of all the things I left behind.

She is a whisper in me, she plays on my mind.


Katherine Cove. Katherine Cove.

Some day soon I shall return, my love.

I’m so far from God here, so far from home.

In my weakest hours I kept you close.
Track Name: Summer Is Nearly Over
Sing a song of wisdom for summer's children
And their bodies broken and their hands clutching stars
Cradle summer's fallen in the arms that you once bore them
And the sea comes crawling to lick their wounds

And summer is nearly over and we are not yet safe

We could hide away, find peace in some shaded place
Because the sun seems too strong
And the rain, of course, she washes everything away
Into the sea into it's belly where summer's children play

Come down with me now to where summer missed in its rage
Come down I want you to fathom the deeper me

As the songs of summer went down in numbers
And the moments lost their speed
I felt a shiver, I heard some golden whisper
That seemed to call after me

Come down with me now to where summer missed in its rage
Come down I want you to fathom the deeper me
Follow me down, follow me down, follow me down to summer's graves
Come down with me now I will show you tragic things
