lyrics

Syke As Thee


I would I could give you fine houses and land
With horses and carriages all at your command
Gardens of roses and arbours of sweet smelling trees
Gifts such as these would be worthy of one syke as thee

I would I could give you bright diamonds and pearls
Presents from the orient from all across the world
Ships laden with treasures from over the wide southern seas
Gifts such as these would be worthy of one syke as thee

I would I could give you rings of beaten gold
Rich hangings for your parlour, rich silks for your clothes
Soft leather for your sandals and silver cups for you to take your tea
Gifts such as these would be worthy of one syke as thee

But the truth I have to tell you is that I have none of these
I have no house nor horses, no gardens, no trees
No treasures from the ocean and my ship is just a ship of dreams
But what I have I’ll give you for there is no other syke as thee

Songs of rain, sun, and fells capture that elusive feeling of what it means to escape from the humdrum of everyday life. ... more
