Lyrics to ‘Blue-Eyed Witch Of The North’ from Junebug

She’s a blue eyed witch of the north
A blue eyed witch of the north
And she took my son, the only one, away from here to fall in love
His life is happy and well but I wish he’d break from her spell

She’s a blue eyed witch of the north
In the brain and body she haunts
A pervading ghost who cares the most, his hunger sated by the host
His life is round as a sphere but the old world will always be here

And maybe your love, is long left behind
It’s closer in miles, a trail he will find
When a spindle pops the balloon
He will wake and travel back soon

She’s a blue eyed witch of the north
A blue eyed witch of the north
And she took my son, the only one, away from here to fall in love
His life is happy and well but I wish he’d break from her spell

About ‘Lost Souls’ (Junebug CD Album, 2016)

This album was recorded at mostly home with drums overdubbed at a studio in Brynford, Holywell. It is a melodic, epic album with a nod to each of my main musical influences. It is inspired by the Island Records releases of the early 70’s. with influences including John Cale, Cat Stevens, Nick Drake, Brian Wilson / The Beach Boys, Marc Bolan / T-Rex, Duncan Browne, Al Stewart, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Big Star, The Velvet Underground & Nico, Gene Clark, The Byrds, Nirvana & REM. The centrepieces of the album are two songs about people – performance artist Andy Kaufman and ‘Gonzo’ artist Ralph Steadman. Ralph lived in my hometown of Abergele in his formative years, and I am a big fan of his artwork. The rumours about Andy Kaufman faking his own death, and the subsequent mystery played a big part in setting the tone and feel of the album.
