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

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

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

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

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
