The ferry's almost here
We're in the camper van
The girls are sleeping
We've never been more awake
The journey here took too long
And now our time is too short
It's Scotland we'll take our chances
with the weather, we'll weather the storm
And I still love you
This time I mean it
Another island, they're in the rock pools
The beginning of the world
is in their giddy fingers
They don't know about regret
Nothing they say needs unsaid
They're not trying to forget
whether it's cruel
to say I love you
And not quite mean it
I don't know where this ship goes
I don't know if there's an island
Set a course and stick to it
And we will make it through

supported by 6 fans who also own “The Winter of 88 (album, 2015)”
"Wintery acoustic songs about love hate, death and other stuff". And swearing. In Scottish.
Not much more anyone could ask for!
Honestly, sometimes life is just miserable, and there has to be a soundtrack for wallowing in that misery. This is it, and in a strangely uplifting way. Wind in the Willows
