High Treason You’ve taken the silver and gold you can never pay back And I think you knew that before you had altered your track I can take hurt but you know I cannot take treason Canopied lies Cloak and disguise Then away You’re silently hiding your soul from the glare of the sun You’re silently hiding your soul from the glare of the sun You opened the wound that we both know we’ll never repeal I think you knew that before you broke off the seal I can take punches but I cannot take a traitor Copious lies Cloak and disguise Then away You’re silently hiding your soul from the glare of the sun You’re silently hiding your soul from the glare of the sun Now you’re in hiding How does it feel in the dark I hear you crying You’re silently hiding your soul from the glare of the sun You’re silently hiding your soul from the glare of the sun You were seen slipping away in the depth of the night A flash your of face was enough to discover your flight You choose your words well but you know They don’t carry reason Deliberate lies Cloak and disguise Then away You’re silently hiding your soul from the glare of the sun You’re silently hiding your soul from the glare of the sun © all rights reserved Saoirse Mhór 2020

Lord Franklin It was homeward bound one night on the deep Swinging in my hammock I fell asleep I dreamed a dream and I thought it true Concerning Franklin and his gallant crew With a hundred seamen he sailed away To the frozen ocean in the month of May To seek a passage around the pole Where we poor seamen sometimes have to go Through cruel hardships they mainly strove Their ship on mountains of ice was drove Only the Eskimo in his skin canoe Was the only one that ever came through In Baffin's Bay where the whale fish blow The fate of Franklin no man may know The fate of Franklin no tongue can tell Lord Franklin along with his sailors do dwell And now my burden it gives me pain For my long lost Franklin I'd cross the main Ten thousand pounds I would freely give To say on earth that my Franklin do live

FAITH I heard you had gone You answered the call I touched it before I was told Because we thought as one The signal was strong Some things you can cannot explain But then again There would not be lines To torture through time You knew life as angered and cold But we had the fire That others admired Collecting our silver and gold As we turned old Faith is a belief That you can't see It's not for measuring Faith you can't see Not in degrees It's not for measuring for measuring for measuring for measuring I never could cry Because you'd laugh in my eyes That picture still swims in my brain I've nothing to wear But I know you'd not care As you watch me stand here in rain.

It’s Over As a young boy when I first learned to sing I never once thought of a use it would bring But standing up here in the shade and the light As we reach out together for comfort and right You come escaping the lives that you live I have an answer that I need to give Now it’s over tonight Now it’s over goodnight I‘ve looked in your faces and I’ve seen in your eyes That you listened intently and you followed my lines Some thought of people they lost in the past Some had lost love that just would not last But whatever the reason that shackles your soul It’s the very same reason that’s making me whole Now it’s over tonight Now it’s over goodnight Now we’ve had fun and we loosened our load I have my hotel and you have the road As you drive in your cars in the dark to your homes I will find comfort in drinking alone As you fall to your feathers so soft and so fine I’ll drink to you with a full glass of wine Now it’s over tonight Now it’s over goodnight The boy is still singing it remains his delight Because he learned it’s a way that he can pass on some light And he hopes that his words have brought peace to your mind As you drift off to sleep and leave this old world behind Now it’s over tonight Now it’s over goodnight © all rights reserved Saoirse Mhór 2020

Table of Losers Tonight I'm searching in the back room Where all of my failures and weaknesses lie I did not think that I'd be back so soon But life has a way of telling me the way things lie Thats why I sit at the table the table of losers The table of losers, you'll never be alone I want to drink to my mother and drink to my father And look deep in my soul and in the morning I'll be strong I'll be strong With my bare hands I work so hard for my keep For the roof on my house in which my family sleep But there are nights when I lie sleepless in my bed When all my worries and my troubles Are all spinning 'round my head I had invested in my own true love Now I'm waiting on the harvest and the good fruit thereof I did believe my own true love would set me free But all this coming and this going Makes a fool right out of me! © all rights reserved Saoirse Mhór 2020

about

This album involves the work of the inspiring musicians who also worked on Ghosts of Tomorrow. In my desire to top that last effort, I was able to add bass and drums in the form of studio and live musicians Steffen Krauss and Daniel Fleischmann and also having Andy Horn on piano.

The CD was originally titled High Treason after a personal difficult time. For some reason the initial plan changed as did the difficult time. Nonetheless the cover indeed reflects that unfortunate phase.
