Track Name: Sister Anne
A beaten up old gate in red cracked paint
Distant lights that flicker out to Sea
Windswept promenades, adorning old postcards
Birdsong braying dogs and bumble bees
We're winding up old clocks and dusting shelves
Edmund stumps up cash to pay the bills
The sisterhood is thriving, with new recruits arriving day by day
In a steady stream - it's a dream

Let Sister Anne draw her conclusions
Just air the vestry mow the lawn
It's the norm, don't let anybody tell you otherwise

Pebbles from the beach on window sills
Sip yesterday's communion wine until
Sunsets quite amazing, the chapel cats are lazing
They've been chasing little squeakers under pews - pay them their dues

Let Sister Anne draw her conclusions
Just air the vestry mow the lawn
It's the norm, don't let anybody tell you otherwise

As the congregation rises
A collective breath is drawn
Coffee mornings, jumble sales
And for some the search goes on
As the voices lift as one
So the lost are slowly drawn
To Edmund's awnings
They're adorning summer lawns

Let Sister Anne cast her aspersions
Just air the vestry mow the lawn
It's the norm, don't let anybody tell you otherwise
Just be wise
Track Name: Y Gwynt
Y gwynt, y gwynt, y gwynt y gwynt y gwynt y gwynt
Y gwynt, y gwynt, y gwynt y gwynt, y gwynt
Y gwynt mor oer a chwerw yn chwythu dros y môr
Bysedd mor creulon ac oer yn gewino 'dan pob drws

Gweddio am y llonydd, y tawelwch mae nhw'n disgwyl am
Mae'n difod pob un fflam cloi y drysau ffoi y sarn
Y gwynt yn troi Mehefin a Gorffenaf mwen i gaeaf
Mae'n para am wythnosau agosai, agosai
Y gwynt mor oer a chwerw yn chwythu dros y tir
Bysedd mor creulon ac oer yn gewino 'dan pob drws

Dechreuais fel awel

Track Name: Brenhines Y Tonnau
Arian yn dy ffynon lloer
Gwefr ar dy adain du
Hoelen yn dy galon o goed
Crisialau oren 'dan dy plu

Cusanau gan frenhines y tonnau
Ar law chwith brenin y haul
'Da ni'n or un edau
Uwch ben y tonnau aur

Llais oer y nant yn tafodi ni
Yn byrlymu fel pregethwr blin
I fyny'r ceunant dringodd y llwybrau
Dwi'n dilyn y ffordd i dy wên

Cusanau gan frenhines y tonnau
Ar law chwith brenin y haul
'Da ni'n or un edau
Uwch ben y tonnau aur
Uwch ben y tonnau aur

Cusanau gan frenhines y tonnau
Ar law chwith brenin y haul
'Da ni'n or un edau
Uwch ben y tonnau aur
Uwch ben y tonnau aur
Uwch ben y tonnau aur
Track Name: Spring Tide
Down where the waves break I saw
Green glint of glass washed ashore
Sharp edges dulled by the tide
Washed down here from Firth of Clyde

Down where the sprint tide is turning
Blue waves on white sand determines

Green glow of spring in your step
Laid low but not quite done yet
Bird song and crest of a wave
We'll comb the beach and sleep late

Down where the sprint tide is turning
Blue waves on white sand determines
If silver's strung in the treetops
Hedgerows are woven with dew drops

Up high the rain clouds dream rust
Coast road wears weather and dust
Down by the lightening pine
Rain shakes a petrified vine

Down where the sprint tide is turning
Blue waves on white sand determines
If summer's sprung in the treetops
Hedgerows are woven with dew drops

And I'm quietly determined that the day will come around
When you and I will sail the blue and never run aground
With discontent and wintertime left trailing in our wake
The sun and wind will favour us which ever course we take
I will be the deckhand and you the captain kind
We'll plough our way through crest and trough 'til golden isles we'll find
And it all makes sense in the fullness fullness of time
Yes it all makes sense in the fullness fullness of time

And this sense of isolation will dissolve as I progress
The clamour of this busy life devours us I guess
The Rowan trees are laden with their berries red as dawn
Perseverance rectifies the golden dreams of thorns
Rain and hills and window sills could never serve to please
The disconnected dreams of dew drops strung out in the trees
Track Name: Dusk Bird
Trade blows with a foregone conclusion
As the sunlight strangles the dust
Laid low with forgotten believers
There a cloud hung heavy with rust

Someone's singing that the grass is much greener
But the sapphire's still hidden in husk
Day is breaking like a tide on the sullen
But the birds still gather at dusk
Birds still gather at dusk

Rain blows on intrepid illusions
As a red glow filters the trust
Ghost crows still in silver collusion
On a lost road claiming the just

Someone's singing that the grass is much greener
But the sapphire's still hidden in husk
Day is breaking like a tide on the sullen
But the birds still gather at dusk
Birds still gather at dusk

Someone's singing that the grass is much greener
But the sapphire's still hidden in husk
Day is breaking like a tide on the sullen
But the birds still gather at dusk
Birds still gather at dusk
Birds still gather at dusk
Birds still gather at dusk
Track Name: Diamonds In A Claw
Diamonds in a claw
Paint peels on a door
Doorway into dream
Hinges scrape and scream

If you want to plummet like hail
Drain the red from rubies and rose
Bide your time or holler and wail
Stain the mud of river and road

Coal is waiting for
Diamonds in a claw
Tuscaloosa dawn
Load your lead then draw

If you want to plummet like hail
Drain the red from rubies and rose
Bide your time or holler and wail
Stain the mud of river and road

Diamonds in a claw
Diamonds in a claw
Diamonds in a claw
Diamonds in a claw

If you want to plummet like hail
Drain the red from rubies and rose
Bide your time or holler and wail
Stain the mud of river and road
Track Name: Landlubber
Heave ho me lads heave ho and row for the captain he did say
There'll be no wind on the lug sail white there'll be no wind today
Heave ho me lads heave ho and row for the captain did pronounce
There'll be no wind on the crab claw grey there'll be no wind today
Heave ho me lads and row

To the detriment of surf to the detriment of sand
My lady fell in love with a landlocked man
So I sailed to the west waged war with the sea
Where weather and the waves were the cavalry

Landlubber lashed by a rash salt spray
I’d throw him overboard but he’s ballast on the way
Dreaming of a river on the open sea
Grey was the colour of the estuary
Wide was the water where the weather brought rain
Ripples on a river where the rain drops stay
Ripples on a river where the rain drops stay

Will the barnacles binge on shipwrecked hull
Or will I strike a passage on an ocean lull
You’re a treasure trove resting in the depths below
Where the sun will never shine and the sea will never show

Landlubber lashed by a rash salt spray
I’d throw him overboard but he’s ballast on the way
Dreaming of a river on the open sea
Grey was the colour of the estuary
Wide was the water where the weather brought rain
Ripples on a river where the rain drops stay
Ripples on a river where the rain drops stay

Serpents scale the depths where mermaids never swim
And the howling of the banshees mingles with the din
So I sink to the bottom with the coral and the clams
For my lady fell in love with a land locked man

Landlubber lashed by a rash salt spray
I’d throw him overboard but he’s ballast on the way
Dreaming of a river on the open sea
Grey was the colour of the estuary
Wide was the water where the weather brought rain
Ripples on a river where the rain drops stay
Landlubber lashed by a rash salt spray
I’d throw him overboard but he’s ballast on the way
Dreaming of a river on the open sea
Grey was the colour of the estuary
Wide was the water where the weather brought rain
Ripples on a river where the rain drops stay
Ripples on a river where the rain drops stay
Track Name: Y Ci
O'r sgubor dywyll dwi'n clywad dy lais trist
Ysbryd gwyllt yn hiraethu am gwmni
Rhywle dwfn, mae rhywbeth yn ildio
Wnai addo cysur a mae'r drws ar agor

Y ci sy'n cyfarth i'r lleuad ar haul
Trwy nos a dydd
Y ci sy'n cyfarth i'r lleuad ar haul
Trwy nos a dydd

Dwi'n cofio Laika mor uchel uwchben
Y byd glas las yn chwyldroi trwy'r nen
O Laika Laika sut elli di gael hyd
I garedigrwydd mor bell o dy fyd

Y ci sy'n cyfarth i'r lleuad ar haul
Trwy nos a dydd
Y ci sy'n cyfarth i'r lleuad ar haul
Trwy nos a dydd
Nos a dydd

Olion disglair o dy gyfeillgarwch
Yn treiddio i bopeth yn y ty o dawelwch
Dwi'n ysbryd gwyllt yn hiraethu dy gwmni
Y dyn di-nod ar ben Moleyci
Y ci sy'n cyfarth i'r lleuad ar haul
Trwy nos a dydd

Y ci sy'n cyfarth i'r lleuad ar haul
Trwy nos a dydd
Y dyn, s'neb yn cydnabod y dyn
Y ty, y bryn

Y ci
Y ci
Y ci
Y ci

Ti'n dangos y bryniau, a’r mor glas i mi
Wnai ddangos fyddlondeb, ond ddim ond i ti
Dwi'n brathu dy gitar a byta dy het
A thrwyno dy foch pan ti'n isel fy ffrind
Ti'n dangos y bryniau, a’r mor glas i mi
Wnai ddangos fyddlondeb, ond ddim ond i ti
Dwi'n brathu dy gitar a byta dy het
A thrwyno dy foch pan ti'n isel fy ffrind
Ti'n dangos y bryniau, a’r mor glas i mi
Wnai ddangos fyddlondeb, ond ddim ond i ti
Dwi'n brathu dy gitar a byta dy het
A thrwyno dy foch pan ti'n isel fy ffrind

Ti'n dangos y bryniau, a’r mor glas i mi
Wnai ddangos fyddlondeb, ond ddim ond i ti
Wnai ddangos fyddlondeb, ond ddim ond i ti
