Hey folks...I've had this song kicking around my ipod for a few months now, but was just listening to it last night have had it stuck on repeat with a few other songs, I just can't stop listening to it, I thought I would share. The song is Mercury by Heidi Berry. I wish she had a sound clip on her website that I could link to, but there's none. (If anyone here subscribes to emusic, that's where I found the song)Here, at least are the lyrics:MercuryI walk through the graveyard and a late snow is on the groundThe bones lying underneath the ivyBlack crow flies high, his shadow moves across the stonesThe snow that melts my footprint melts awayI turn from the West gate and look to the eastI will await the coming dawn to welcome the traveller homeI wonder if you hear me singing softly to myselfAnd I wonder do you recognise the tuneAnd times I've been so lonely for another human soundI have cried and shouted to myselfI turn from the West gate and look to the eastI will await the coming dawn to welcome the traveller homeDawn to dusk and dust to dust and days of mercuryIn my mind's eye the time goes by is set like a crystalAt the end of the year the days grow dim, I feel the time go byBut you can't hold on to mercury.You turn from the West gate and you look to the eastWhile earth awaits the coming dawnTo welcome the traveller homeUnfortunately, just reading the lyrics does the song no justice. I don't generally listen to anything quite as folksy as this, but I don't think I could imagine this one any way besides what it is. Like I said, kinda folksy, vaguely reminiscent of some Celtic music. Her voice is low and a little sad, kinda wistful. It's been a while since a song really grabbed me like this and I couldn't not share it with others that might be interested.ETA: I've been informed that this song is available on iTunes, so if you've got it, you can hear a clip there.
You seem to be the only place in the entire web that has lyrics to this song. I suppose congratulations are in order for that, or at least thanks.
