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

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?

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
