Blood Wedding by Kevin Nolan You kept your word You remembered You held your tongue Till December But I saw it comin’ You took her for granted You said she was just some woman You met in a club Instead it was love That tore us apart It wasn’t just in my head It was in your heart And now you’re sleepin’ With one eye open A feather in my cap A goodbye token You kept your word You remembered You held your tongue Till December But she drew first blood When she drew my name And the devil’s in the detail And there’s no deed to mark the day How is it how it is? With your open heart in the graveyard of romance We’ll never get another chance to part Sleepin’ With one eye open A feather in my cap A goodbye token Blood Wedding

Splinter 04:49
Splinter by Kevin Nolan went to the river in another part of town want you to give her exactly what you found and when it’s over you will be alright never again alone again in the middle of the night Oh Girl Send him a letter tell him what you found and the end of the river buried in the ground and just like the splinter in the lion’s skin you’ll be never again a slave again restoring everything Oh Girl Use a voice of silver in the letter that you write she’s not the killer make him see the light happy ever after let us never speak again of the day we found a soul of sin in a child of only ten.

Last Days Of Harry Carey by Kevin Nolan Take my gun You’re my favourite son And you ride that horse like you stole it We all got it coming, kid Pearls for the swine Yea we all got our time Can’t worry a dying man’s mind Dishing out the devil’s wages with a peacemaker and a pocket comb Ah no more of this Nail me in and take me home Take my gun You’re my favourite son And you ride that horse like you stole it Face in the forest I never stood a chance I’m just some rum soaked gunman Who never took a stand Dishing out the Devil’s wages i stole my life from an oracle bone No more of this Nail me in and bring me home

Ballade to St. Dymphna by Kevin Nolan Night clouds spat out my mind woke and sorrow-eyes Jane was there with our hooves all bloody and chipped we speak in accents of despair and pick the carcass of the earth don’t worry we won't be curbed cause we will live and you will learn when the stones have been disturbed At night we will all look the same just like the artists and the seers but we’re the devils window pane through us he sees the world and sneers

The Guess 04:00
The Guess by Kevin Nolan Find a way that’s what we have to do Find a way sure her heart is weak, she can't speak but we'll go through the forest we will cross the river we will bring the forest down White woman in the woods of soot, whittling a wedding dress said dark is the council of man, for man is master of the guess she skipped bail and two army ships set sail, let the waves take her west. and somewhere sitting on a suit case a man begins to weep and beat his chest and beat his chest and beat his chest and beat his chest and beat his chest Find a way bring her back to him Find a way sure the tale is grim chances slimming but we'll go through the forest we will cross the river we will bring the forest down Awe, awe, awe, Awe, awe, awe, Awe, awe, awe, Awe, awe, awe, Awe, awe, awe, and beat his chest and beat his chest and beat his chest and beat his chest

Drowning 03:42
Drowning by Kevin Nolan You fight against yourself You rock the boat Pretty soon you’re drowning Pretty soon You’re underneath the waves Being pulled down by the waves And Drowning Like a switchbalde to my heart There she was She was every song I heard She held a match to every word I was a saint among the heard But now I’m drowning We were together for so long So, so long I’m glad that you took me in hand Of how you cured my sickly plans Cause I was trapped inside the act Drowning men are never found

Peggy Sue 01:37
Peggy Sue by Kevin Nolan (Lyrics by Tony Cafferky) My name is Peggy Sue And I never knew no rules Still I wonder Could I ever get back home to the village where it all started in 1942

Oil On Canvas by Kevin Nolan I can’t keep up with you You’re talking like a toy and you think that’s cool The perfume in your sleeve will never understand why you had to leave don’t think he stands to loose the devil at the lever in the engine room and when you fall apart fall apart with me The things that they construe they take a dirty lie and they make it true don’t think you stand to gain but you gotta draw the stork in the wind and rain your eyes of ‘85 never saw the likes never saw the lies and when you fall apart fall apart with me

Aubade by Kevin Nolan I gotta go I’d rather hide my rain Than have you catch cold Goodbye is what you said Bit it don’t feel so good This party’s over, this love has fled Take me out dancing Play my song till I can’t sing no more Can’t sing no more Goodbye is what you said But it don’t feel so good This party’s over you love has fled
