about

Part II of my collection of songs, SRADDHA.
One song will be released each month from 1 Sept 2014 - 1 June 2015.
SRADDHA traces my steps out of the darkness and into the light as I mourned the death of someone close to me, and ultimately discovered more about life.

lyrics

I am stretched on your grave
And will lie there forever
If your hands were in mine
I'd be sure we'd not sever
My apple tree, my brightness,
It's time we were together
For I smell of the Earth
And am worn by the weather.

When my family thinks
That I'm safe in my bed
From night until morning
I am stretched at your head
Calling out to the air
With tears both hot and wild
Oh I grieve for the girl
I loved as a child.

The priests and the friars
Approach me in dread
Because I still love you
My love, and you're dead
I would still be your shelter
From rain and from storm
And with you in your cold grave
I cannot sleep warm

So I'm stretched on your grave
And will lie there forever
If your hands were in mine
I'd be sure we'd not sever
My apple tree, my brightness,
It's time we were together
For I smell of the Earth
And am worn by the weather.
