about

Cormac O Caoimh Cork, Ireland

What do…
A honeyed whiskey drink,
A fine cognac on a cold winter’s eve
A warm woolly jumper in muted earthy colours
A colour .. a rich mahogany warm and beautiful
and a water color painting all have in common???
They have all been used in reviews to describe Cormac O Caoimh’s new album

"Beautiful beyond words" - Mutant Space

"There is true magic here" - Folk Words

Track Name: second hand clothes
Your soul’s
Second hand clothes
Worn through
At the knees and elbows
Try teach
Teach me a sadness
That fits you
Fits you like old shoes

Run out of child
All that’s left is man
A beautiful lie
Spoken softer than no sound *2

Your mind
Never arrives
Stretched out
Stretched like a runway
Reach me
Reach me and leave me
Miss you
Miss you like old shoes

LPs
On an old phonograph
Plays clean
But your favourite tracks are scratched
Rewind
Try put the needle back
Skip you
Ditched you like old shoes
Track Name: born
You should have been born somewhere else
A town designed by a kind architext
You should have been born somewhere else
Somewhere more and less pedestrian

You could have been born someone else

You should have been born sometime else
With blessings blossoming your fingertips
You should have been born sometime else
Where your grace would grace all who you met

You could have been born someone else

You should have been named someone else
A name unique and with no history
You should have been named someone else
In a language befitting your mystery

You could have been born someone else

You could have lived as someone else
I’d be someone you you’d easily forget
You could have lived as someone else
And reached out to the stars all by yourself

And....

Love like another kind of love
When the old poets wrote of this
They knew that you’d exist
So glad I witnessed it
So glad I witnessed it
Love
