Andy Iveson Although I've chosen Rivers as my favourite track, quite honestly it could have been any of them. I think this is a superb album from start to finish. As my music collection grows and my tastes widen I am constantly searching for something different, something unique, and I really don't think that I have anything else like this. A remarkable album! Favorite track: Rivers.

Rivers 04:47
Rivers, forests seas, lakes and trees Growing over feet so still Lovers making love underneath clear skies Fingers in your ears where will you go? Living, drumming sun that shines on everyone Clouds that slowly form and light the sky I can only love you until I'm here Then when I go I don't know All I want is some room inside slip me outside of the human eye Holding on to what I have Rivers run wild like the human tongue pushing us forward everyone holding on to what we can I could never leave unless you tell me so But when I go We wave goodbye, say goodbye
3.
Silence 05:32
I was watching ideas form in my mind Memories half formed, reaching for the light Words falling like rain Words drifting away and then silence Was here beside me, a guard dog for the night eyes start twitching reaching out for sight Words falling like rain Words rot me away And then silence was gone
4.
All the Kings Horses And all the kings men They went off to fight a war and they never came home again They fell into a pit and they couldnt get out Fell into a pit and they couldnt get out All the Kings horses And all the Kings men They went on the longest ride and were never seen again Everybody said that they shouldn't have gone Shouldn't, shouldn't have gone You shouldn't shouldn't have gone
5.
Before you loved me my world was clear Before you loved me There was no one to fear Before you loved me I could walk out the door Before you loved me There was nowhere to fall And now the sky, feels too small to hold us And how the earth moves so Before you loved me This feels like Pain crawling under nails And I will give it back can't give it back can't give it back I'm at sea
6.
Water 03:28
So did I Know it all Before it came So did life pass me by and trip me again And the sand watered me down so I was light before And I dreamt I was falling Couldnt hold your hand no more And the slow waves drifting Oh salt and water calmed me down
7.
In the fading light, between waking and sleep At the waters edge where moonbeams find the sea Here you are king and I am queen and we are here together Tomorrow's dead the past is gone there only is the present Yes in the fading light, no one needs to crawl We're on the other side In a different world, where golden mirrors shine Click your heels three times and watch the houses fly We sing tomorrow we shall wake and we shall be the people that we're meant to be Not wake up cold and grey the come down begging for a hit No in this fading light Nobody feels the pain We're on the other side And we're not coming back We're not coming back Again Coming back as we are
8.
That Day 05:02
Each blade of grass stood still That day, that day When each tree lost it's leaves We remained, we remained Hearts did not bloom no more They were grey, they were grey As flesh cloaked in mounds of ash Rotted away, away How we cried, for what once was ours That day, that day How we cried for what once was ours That day, that day When all we had and all we lost was gone When the moon was full And the light came down And the soldiers stood there in tattered clothes With broken hearts And the world stood by And watched Hearts did not bloom no more They were grey, they were grey As flesh left in fields of mud rotted away, away How we cried for what once was ours That day, that day How we cried for what once was ours That day, that day When all we had and all we lost Was gone.

As the sun disappears behind The furthest peak The earth turns black, so black As the trees that rippled in the sun Swim in moonfilled skies In a light, so old And silence leaves me so cold so black As the sun disappears behind the furthest peak
10.
I hide In the dark Beneath the leaves in the dirt Trembling like a fool Trembling like a fool For the hope I had I couldnt lie To the light I had to try To get it back But I walk into the arms Of the hell I make, of the hell I make Into fire, that rises as I fall Into darkness, that becomes us As we strip bear all there is to know Higher, higher Fan the flames that bring us further from the light we used to know And I'll see you Here in hell. Have to try to get it back Have to try to get it back Or I walk into the arms Of the hell I make Of the hell I make
11.
I had a dream The world was light Staring upon a sea of black So many lives lost Oooh ssshhh Stand on what is light Stand on what is light I'll be safe in your arms I feel safe in your arms

about

"Now here's a gem of a record. The Widowed Earth is a self-released album from Dos Floris, a London born singer songwriter who has swapped out much of the traditions of her roots in favour of an ethereal, abstract sound that marries sublime, heavenly textures with energetic propulsion and winding sung tales". Norman Records, Oct 2017
