about

A NON ALBUM track telling an untold story form the world of 'the butcher'...

The young man who became the butcher started his (mis) adventures when he thought he heard a mysterious voice calling out from across the sea. This turned out to be Delores (sung so brilliantly on the album by Josienne Clarke).

But who else might have heard that call? What other islands did it reach?

'The unrequited' sings her song of another man returned from the stormy sea, returned with a darkness where his soul should be. Like somebody else we know...

lyrics

sister sing your siren song
it's no surprise to me
I heard your whisper on the waves
and I found my enemy
found my enemy

the ocean brought our song along
and took my love form me
I was bold and bonnie and betrothed
and now I lost all three
but found my enemy

I send a bird to find my love as my heart yearns
but I do not recognise the creature who returns
bloodied, black and brutal
with treasure in his hold
a monster of a man
who would trade love for gold
love for gold

maybe you are innocent
my sister of the sea
and did not know your song would make
a widow out of me
although his heart still beats

I send a bird to find my love as my heart yearns
but I do not recognise the creature who returns
bloodied, black and brutal
with treasure in his hold
a monster of a man
who would trade love for gold
love for gold
