I’m going to hide in the hollow..trunk
In the hollow of an old oak
And hear only the hazel
Build an Atlantis in my blood

I’m going to run from the sun
Bottle up and store it’s warmth
And create a holy order
A holy order just for one

I entered a room with you
Where the sound of footsteps flew
Before it reached our ears
The sound of footsteps disappeared

A light shun in my eye
Like an avalanche arrived
And I knew that I should hide
And never set sight on the sky

I won’t be deceived
By each new day I receive
No cooling star or meteor
Is going to get me from my knees

My only alibi
My only alibi’s a lie
Every man’s an only child
Widow and orphan when he dies

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
