lyrics

These Somerset skies ain’t like nothing you’ve seen
They’re torn from a book, they’re ripped from a dream
They’ll fill up your heart, ‘till it bursts at the seams

This dirt is my dirt, it wont dirty my feet
It colours my thoughts, draws me away from city streets
It helps me stay grounded makes me complete

It’s been a long long time since I’ve seen this land of mine
And it may not be a long return
But in those evenings when I’m gone
My heart wanders on
And longs to be where those Somerset skies burn

I’m embraced by the wind, it puts a hand on my face
Gently gives me a shove in to a new unknown place
And whispers as I turn come home safe
It’s been a long long time since I’ve seen this land of mine
And it may not be a long return
But in those evenings when I’m gone
My heart wanders on
And longs to be where those Somerset skies burn

It’s been a long long time since I’ve breathed in this land of mine
And it may not be a long return
But in those evenings when I’m gone
My heart wanders on
And longs to be where those Somerset skies burn.

Warm harmonies and strings, this EP stays true to their organic busking sound.
