Iron and Wine

Some of the lesser known (but great) Bands are hard to find videos on. This song, Jezebel, is by Iron and Wine. This video is unofficial (and not sure how it relates) but the best sound for this hauntingly beautiful song. Sit back, close you eyes…and listen


who’s seen jezebel?
she was born to be the woman i would know
and hold like the breeze
half as tight as both our eyes closed

who’s seen jezebel?
she went walking where the cedars line the road
her blouse on the ground
where the dogs were hungry, roaming

saying, “wait, we swear
we’ll love you more and wholly
jezebel, it’s we, we that you are for
only”

who’s seen jezebel?
she was born to be the woman we could blame
make me a beast half as brave
i’d be the same

who’s seen jezebel?
she was gone before i ever got to say
“lay here my love
you’re the only shape i’ll pray to, jezebel”

who’s seen jezebel?
will the mountain last as long as i can wait
wait like the dawn
how it aches to meet the day

who’s seen jezebel?
she was certainly the spark for all i’ve done
the window was wide
she could see the dogs come running

saying, “wait, we swear
we’ll love you more and wholly
jezebel, it’s we, we that you are for
only”

Robert Burn’s Auld Lang Syne

Posted in Aule lang syne, Dreamer, Famiiy, Friends, Happy New Year, Memories, Music, music makers, new beginnings on January 1, 2008 by anuvuestudio

I found this beautiful (proper Scottish) version sung by a Celtic Musican that’s a long time player of Celtic, acoustic music (especially Robert Burns). He tells of playing guitar, banjo, mandolin and keyboards, from folk groups to ceilidh bands, over the years. He spends a lot of time evangelising the words and music of Robert Burns.
His home is the Kingdom of Fife in Scotland (a place that I’ve actually been!). Anyway, it’s a very sweet, pure version with all the original words…and I’m a sucker for a Scottish accent 😉

Auld Lang Syne :1788


“Auld Lang Syne” (Scots; lit., “old long since”, although might be better translated as “old long ago”, “times gone by”, or “days gone by”)

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne!

Chorus.-For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

And surely ye’ll be your pint stowp!
And surely I’ll be mine!
And we’ll tak a cup o’kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.

We twa hae run about the braes,
And pou’d the gowans fine;
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary fit,
Sin’ auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.

We twa hae paidl’d in the burn,
Frae morning sun till dine;
But seas between us braid hae roar’d
Sin’ auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.

And there’s a hand, my trusty fere!
And gie’s a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll tak a right gude-willie waught,
For auld lang syne.
For auld, &c.
