Written by Lorraine McColgan


Deep indoors your hair falls long
When evening comes and terrifies the senses
The sense is
Of seeing truth that’s testing you
Thinking truth could rescue you
And bundle up your heart to meet some lover

Soft you sit and rock it low
As though it were a baby in a cradle
You’re able
To wrap these words like blood and skin
Around you for the state you’re in
Be careful when you feel your soul unfolding

Small pieces of gold and silver,
Tell you that you can deliver angels to the world
Angels rushing in
Telling secrets in the dark
Secrets sent to free your heart and lend you life
Get wed you wife
Telling you, telling you get wed
Telling you, telling you get wed

Gazing at your fisted hand
Your fingers white, your nowhere man
You feel it, you see it
You see the riches in the rock
The woman underneath her frock
Your gown’s already falling from your shoulder.

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.
