  1. Irene

From the album Nowhere to Land

Lyrics

I hear the sorrow in your voice
You sound like someone who never had a choice
I see the message on your face
It says that there’s no finishing this race
It’s just a punch we have to take

Oh, oh, oh, Irene
Follow me across the seven seas
Leave it all behind ’til there’s nothing left to leave
Oh, Irene

Your heart is tired of the heat
And all the years you never let it skip a beat
You worked it hard and watched it grow
More and more, now it’s heavy like a stone
Too big to carry on your own

Oh, oh, oh, Irene
Follow me across the seven seas
Leave it all behind ’til there’s nothing left to leave
Oh, Irene

Take my word
Take my hand
Take this chance to escape
Shed the earth
From your back
Before you cave beneath the weight

Oh, oh, oh, Irene
Follow me across the seven seas
Leave it all behind ’til there’s nothing left to leave
Oh, Irene
