about

Kirsty McGee Manchester

A wandering maverick and spellbinding live performer with a voice that has been described as having the texture of smoke & velvet, McGee defies categorisation, to make 'hobopop' –“music of no fixed genre”. Her continuously evolving musical personality is proof that a freedom from artistic restraints can sometimes produce a unique, enthralling and original voice with a rare honesty. ... more

Track Name: Sandman
Right before the you close your eyes
Whispering your prayers
When the sandman blows your eyes
I’ll be there

When you wake up in the night
Sounds the second stair
That creaks under the careless foot
I’ll be there

Gather roses while you may
While the bloom is full
For the blossom soon will fade
And the bloom grow dull

Right before the morning light
Creeps soft upon the sill
When the shadows chase the night
I never will

When your voice is softly heard
Singing in the morning light
But the note does not ring true
I’ll be there

Right before you sleep at night
Closing up the blind
In the window’s black embrace
If you find

The face of a lover long-forgot
Forgotten eyes, forgotten hair
Forgotten words that stretch like salt
I’ll be there
Track Name: Setting Of The Sun
Mercy, mercy, won’t you see what I’ve become
I see the new day a-coming and I turn around and run
You say the old day is over and the new one’s just become
But won’t we all go to heaven with the setting of the sun

Oh oh all of my nighttimes and all of my days
I’ve been looking for something I’ve been looking through a haze
And I could have done so many things that should have been left undone
But won’t we all go to heaven with the setting of the sun

Clap hands
Clap hands

Well I was born into this world so happy and so free
But your kind of loving got a hold over me
Your love is following me, following me like a killer with a gun
But won’t we all go to heaven with the setting of the sun?

Cain slew Abel didn’t he kill him for a price
And nothing ever comes for free and least of all advice
I’ve been looking for a reason why I came undone
But won’t we all go to heaven with the setting of the sun?

Well didn’t they say that love was free?
Didn’t they say that love was free?

Didn’t they say that love was free?
