lyrics

Throughout the evening I could feel, the shadow of your leaving. At dusk, the way you stared the floor down it made the bridegroom falter.
Elephant, my elephant. I see you, I see you.
And later, when the dance floor got complicated you put your whiskey down with such purpose that I cried, into outer space and the lights flickered off and on
and off and on and off and on and off and on and on.
Elephant, my elephant. I see you, I see you.
Elephant, my elephant I see you, I see you.
Elephant, my elephant I see you, I see you.

about

Mary and the Pigeons Dublin, Ireland

Mary and The Pigeons are a band hatched by writer and cellist Mary Barnecutt (me) with the aid of my lovely, assorted instrumental friends. Into Air combines my interest in folk music, poetry and an acoustic, minimalist string sound.
