lyrics

I get up in the half-light the blur-blue, secret centre of night. Go downstairs; I forget, the front room has been set. Bed decamped, folded clothes in odd places and over all the TV snows.
So she sleeps, like someone ever-abandoning all pretence, of shell, of defence. And in her sleeping gives stark evidence that here is a child still dreaming on.
A child, is still and this older ghost, who walks over this makeshift grave, looks at what’s not her world. Go back to bed it’s not your world. Go back to bed you’ve had your turn.
So she sleeps, like someone ever-abandoning all pretence, of shell, of defence. And in her sleeping gives stark evidence that here is a child still dreaming on and on and on and on.

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.
