Written by Lorraine McColgan & Ed McGinley

lyrics

Do you want to realize
The end is near, the tide is high
The fire’s fading embers hypnotise you to a stone
You can’t be surprised
The time were warm, the air was light
And now the truth will pierce your skin and bang upon your bones
There was a warning sound
You never even looked around
And still you shade your eyes

I told you I was good like this and so I am
I warned but you wouldn’t let it in
You told me, you told me, you told me lies

Come on and get wise
You cannot sell a compromise
The burning building’s empty don’t stay staring at the flames
Take down the book of lies
And lose those the ancient alibis
Return the purpose to your eyes

I told you I was good like this and so I am
I warned but you wouldn’t let it in
You told me, you told me, you told me lies
You told me, you told me, you told me lies

about

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.
