  1. Genevieve

From the recording Genevieve

Written about a shipwreck near Scotland. It turns out my Great Grandmother was named Genevieve and I never knew.

Lyrics

It seems so long ago, in silence she slipped away from me
Into the arms of a jealous angry sea
With a hunger of years, the wind swept waters could not wait
Taking captain and crew, and loved ones to their fate

Chorus
Now when the winds off the Hebrides blow so free
That's when she calls to me
She speaks softly on the ocean breeze
She says everything's alright

Anguish and fear color my every waking thought
Can she not see what her ghostly vigil has wrought
And I nearly loose my mind, each time she calls to me
Echos from a cold wet grave that never should be

Now when the winds off the Hebrides blow so free
That's when she calls to me
She speaks softly on the ocean breeze
She says she will never let me go

Oh Genevieve, I've lost your love to the sea

Will you not go, and leave me with my memories
For the love that I knew is gone, I beg you to set me free

Now when the winds off the Hebrides blow so free
No longer does she call to me
I hear only waves in the ocean breeze
Ever since she said goodbye

Oh Genevieve, I've lost your love to the sea
Oh Genevieve, you were always Ginny to me
