about

03 Unsaved
The Remembrance -- A single life is a tapestry woven of all the threads that came together to form it. Sharp ones and shiny ones, tattered they may be, but each is a part of me. I love who I am, therefore I accept that I am made of imperfect moments and rash decisions, blinding epiphanies and the aftermath of betrayal. The energies I sent out into the world as a child return to me now, enlightening me. The ogham fid is Idad for memory and fullness.

lyrics

UNSAVED // I remember the night it went up in smoke / I was singing a song of forgiveness / and how even love doesn’t cover all sins / when a heart has been robbed of fulfilment // I remember the light that shone through the glass / and the magic I felt in the music / they couldn’t believe the things I saw / but I had the vision to prove it // a touch on my skin / a burning in / standing, surrounded, aflame / all of the passion of the girl I had been / returned to the woman I became / a light in my heart / another start / remembering I never caved / I saw the magic in the air / even then, even there / unsaved // I remember the day it crumbled and fell / I was thinking about resurrection / and how I knew I could never go home / where the bodies were only reflections // a touch on my skin / a breathing in / falling without any sound / all the compassion for the girl I had been / returned to the keeping of the ground / a hole in the sky / another try / remembering more than a grave / I saw the magic in despair / even then, even there / unsaved // the apples were ripe for the taking / and I was a world in the making / they couldn’t believe the things I knew / I didn’t expect them to // a touch on my skin / a sinking in / standing but never the same / all of the passion from the girl I had been / returned to the woman I became / a lump in my throat / another coat / remembering how to be brave / I saw the magic everywhere / even then, even there / unsaved // I remember the night it went up in smoke / I was singing a song of forgiveness //
