Oh ah, Holly come back to us, we won’t mind
Fools are only the ones who don’t see they’re blind

Your dreams were wonderful
It’s not your fault they failed
Warm arms wait to hold you
Soft and pale

Oh ah, Holly get back to us, we’ll be kind
Take some peace in this company, ease your mind

Don’t try to understand
It’s far too soon
Just feel the warmth of wings
The cool of the moon

Now come to golden rooms
And you move on
Come through the shreds of lives
And come through a swan

Oh ah, Holly go lightly, don’t even try
Your wings cool in the skies, you were made to fly

The Winters Norfolk Island

Steeped in the sound of classic American folk musics—blues, country, RnB, soul, Appalachian—they emerge with their own identity, some kind of hybrid of Roy Orbison and the Sir Douglas Quintet… oscillating between moody and clubby.
