Kind of Choral Twisted Folk

"Silky vocals jangle towards rousing harmonies between beautiful violin solos and finely mastered acoustic guitar from twisted neo-folk band Snufkin. Expect exhilarating toe-tapping rhythm and lifting intricate melodies with some tracks playing a cursory nod to their very own brand of filthy swing." - The Prince Albert, Stroud

Track Name: Weary Soul
I was born a weary soul
Already tired of this world
How did I end up here
How did I

X3

I was lost

I was born a weary man
I have no map at hand
How did I end up here
How did I

I was torn away
Memories
How did I end up here
How did I

I was lost

I was born a weary soul
Already tired of this world
How did I end up here
How did I
Track Name: Bleary Eyed
There exists a colour I once knew
It sits outside and in-between red and blue

I can only see it when I’m bleary eyed

After a day of long hard toil
Or a morning that is still the night spent dancing in the soil
When we awaken after a night of love
Or when we still try to cling to the branches up above

Oh how I tried, I’ve tried
I can only see it when I’m bleary eyed
I can only see it when I’m bleary eyed
I can only see it when I’m bleary eyed

Crawling it shimmers into the spaces unseen
The gaps of our existence, all the places in between
The creases on the bedsheets, on the oak panelled floor
The willow bark, the frosted mark, its at your mind’s door

There exists a colour I once knew
And when I’m bleary eyed I think I still do
It sits outside and in-between red and blue
And I could never describe it to you/It reminds me of you

Oh how I tried, I’ve tried
I can only see it when I’m bleary eyed
I can only see it when I’m bleary eyed
I can only see it when I’m bleary eyed
Track Name: Tonight
Tonight’s gonna be the night you remember
As the night you ask yourself
Are you really doing what you wanted to be doing
And if not why don’t you do something else

You’ve got to learn to fly
All by yourself
You’ve got to learn to fly
With nobody’s help

Tommy was a young boy who just wanted to be free
So he thought he’d buy a sailing boat and sail it out to sea
He realised it wouldn’t be so easy
With all these waves crashing down on he

So he learnt to fly
All by himself
He learnt to fly
With nobody’s help

Sally was a young girl who was working on the land
She was bored of scraping pennies while her boss made a grand
One day it got to much to hard to bland
So she upped and left with no money and no plan

So she learnt to fly
All by herself
She learnt to fly
With nobody’s help

To start with nothing, as they say
Allows one’s plans to go any which way
A vision of the future with less work than play
Suddenly becomes the present, today

Tonight’s gonna be the night you remember
As the night you ask yourself
Are you really doing what you wanted to be doing
And if not why don’t you do something else (X2)

You’ve got to learn to fly
All by yourself
You’ve got to learn to fly
With nobody’s help
