about

Originally recorded as just an acoustic guitar, a lead riff and a single vocal, the power of this simple eulogy to Winter and it's place within the Celtic seasonal cycle warranted a completely new recording of this track.

Here it is released for the first time as a single from the forthcoming LP 'Across the Atlantic'

Track Name: Long Hard Winter
Long Hard Winter

It's been months, months filled with days
Feeling like an old man, with old man wornout ways
Seeing grey dark skies, loaded with rain and cold
And all round me, this Long Hard Winter has taken hold.

But it's brought me to a new age, a new era, a new morn
With deep fresh breaths of air and warm water to wash every dawn
Sometimes the sun shines through the clouds, high above in the sky
As each day the new man is born a little more, and the old man begins to die
And I've changed, I've been rearranged
Oh I've changed, I've been rearranged

And patience is a way of life, patience is an end for worry and strife
Waiting around forever, for the next wave to come
The next gust of wind to blow
For pure water to rain down and make this sapling of a tree grow
This tree must grow

For it takes time to make a journey
It takes time to fall in love
Takes time to get to know someone
Time to glimpse heaven above
Even more time to become a man
Even more time, to change, be rearranged

It's been months, months filled with days
Feeling like an old man with old man ways
Seeing grey dark skies loaded with rain and cold
And all around me this Long Hard Winter has taken hold
And yeah I've changed, been rearranged
