  1. The Curse

From the album Songbird


My mother warned me from the start
“That girl be a wicked lass”
But it's hard to see past your own heart
Once her spell's been cast

Sailed off on a ferry
Rather than marry
And followed my wits with heart in tow
Made many a mile
But wonder the while
Why, oh why can't I let her go?

She'd told me she had a dream
That I'd give her home and son
Before her web could fasten me
I'd left with the dawn

No empty cask of Holy wine
Nor girl that I've since bed
Has kept her ghost from haunting me
After evening prayers are said
