about

this is an initial mix of one of the tracks from the forthcoming Silkwinders album due in 2017. Andrea is still busying to give it the true Silkwinders sheen, but it seemed apt to let it out just for the solstice and the turning point of the year.

lyrics

This low cloud and long silent day
Hangs gently upon us again
So we smile, and we warm ourselves by the fire
Raise our spirits higher.
For soon will be the singing change
on the longest night of the year

Come down to me silently
Come down unto me
Fill in the pieces I’m missing
Come down unto me

I look to the distance between stars
On this night there will be frost
So we smile and we warm ourselves by the fire
Winter make me a liar.
For I scorned the passing of summer
on the longest night of the year

Come down to me silently
Come down unto me
Fill in the pieces I’m missing
Come down unto me
