The Chieftains Song
The Chieftains SongSt.Brigid, one of Ireland's key female saints and also the pagan goddess of fertility, celebrates her feast day on the 1st February, marking the first day of Spring. School children in Ireland are told a lot of the traditional stories about here, the one I was taught was about her converting a Chieftain to christianity on his death bed, using the rushes from the floor of his chamber to weave a cross. The St.Brigid's cross is a beautiful one as it works in nearly a cyclical pattern.

02 DeliriumWritten & performed by Sophie Coyle Recorded & produced by Giles Packham at Waveform Studios Sophie Coyle - vocals, guitar DELIRIUM (Lyrics and music by Sophie Coyle) He led me into a hazel copse and stripped me of my bark, And with the sinewy white sapwood He wove a cage in which to keep the fluttering of my heart x 2 He stretched me out on a mossy bank and sang to me my name And thirstily from the dew I drank Till my veins became a running stream through the woodland soft and dank x 2 Then with his earthy hands he pressed sweet woodbine to my chest Till the smell of the crushed leaves fill the air, Perfumed my thoughts divest of care and left my mind refreshed x 2 Chorus He wept and let one piercing note rip from his throat through Christendom x 2 Gripped in the arms of delirium x 2 Try as he might to resuscitate the life light in my eyes Rigour mortis had seized my corpse Which undid the clasp of its mortal box and flew up to the skies x 2 Chorus He learnt his lesson, the darling thing, it nearly broke his heart, You can’t mend a bird with a busted wing No matter how hard you want it to sing it’s bound for the graveyard cart. Chorus
