Garnet Wine

About this Song:

Moira: This song was written after hearing the one and only June Tabor performing ‘Finisterre’ on her album ‘Ashore’. Sea ports are a terrific source of material as they teem with sad stories and lost souls.

Siobhan: Triphop, Jazz, Pop, Chill. With Piano, Noises, Pad, Glitch Drums. The subbass drums and the bass drum reflect the various sounds of small waves hitting a boat. And a very mellow Saxophone. Marcel (http://www.filler-productions.com) did a fantasic job mixing this track

Lyrics:

Garnet Wine

I see the moon reflected
In my glass of garnet wine
Seems its face is full of sorrow
As sorrowful as mine
It’s time for me to break all ties
Make sail for that line
Where the sea kisses the sky

Now my glass has broken
Like my fractured heart and mind
I’ve a ticket marked for nowhere
And I’ll take it as a sign
To break away, make no last try
My fate lies on that line
Where the sea kisses the sky

My ticket’s marked for nowhere
I’ll take it as a sign
To sail away, sail for that silver line
Where the sea kisses the sky
