This Life

A little excerpt from last sunday’s third live stream concert which focused on songs I’ve been writing at the piano for this new album. 

Here is ‘This Life’. 

This life
This life that we have
Is a fragile thing
That creaks
With age in the morning

And a crow waits
And he’s got all the time 
That you don’t

The end
The end when it comes 
Is just a tug on a string 
Scrim-shrouded
Light on a black wing

And the crow’s gone
With barely a beating of breath

For each a silent bell 
Reckoning with a wave 
Gloaming’s coal-dark beak 
Swallows everything

Tune in this coming sunday 31 May for the penultimate show of the series at https://twitch.tv/jamiefdoe

Big love
