This was created and recorded exclusively on my iPhone - no vocal retakes! Written while I was at the Irish Youth Choir Course in Cork.


It should be simple; Shake off the sleep,
Return when you are someone new.
It can be painful; crossing the breach,
But I don't wanna just talk and not do!

I hear you calling me, it must be fate

Long ago somebody told me
"You don't have to like anyone, you've got to try and love them"
Words are so deceptive; it almost sounded easy to do
Recently somebody told me that...
"The future will work out", They said, "You've have to try and trust it"
Words are so deceptive; it almost sounded easy to do

I hear you calling me,
it must be fate!
Maybe it's destiny,
well played, west wind, well played!

Everything moves in me
My feet itch every day
A kiss for a kingdom,
A word for your heart,
Well played, west wind, well played!
