about

eirwen skye Sydney, Australia

Eirwen Skye is a solo singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist using loops of ukulele, vocals and various ‘toy’ instruments to create a layered sound. The highly emotive lyrics are an essay in the meaning of ‘unrequited’, delivered with a voice that is far bigger than her small frame would suggest.

"Her voice was absolutely gorgeous...haunting and powerful performance." (Drum Media)

Track Name: Don't let them tell us a goddamn thing (instrumental)
ah-la
ah-la
a-la-ah
Track Name: The Morning
Darling // Have we awoken so soon
I ask for one more moment of sleep
Between the day and your sheets

Darling // I lost the reins
Now you alone call the blame
and shoot the night between us

Hold me down // by the chest
String me up // by my hands
My heart is bound, let me come home

Darling // this one hurts more than the last
I know we are done // With no breath left
to run away
Track Name: Something Borrowed
Stay awhile with me
We'll sleep beneath the trees
The sun will catch your breath

Darling, keep your words
They are not enough
Our hearts say all we need
to say

Take off all your cares
I've your hand
and you have mine

Though we may grow old
Our love stays young
and walks beside us, arm in arm

Take off all your cares
I've your hand
and you have mine

I've your hand
you always had mine
Track Name: We Were In Love - live at Brick Lane
You came round
with a fistful of promises
I could not number them all

But I would count them
more than I could call on you
for anything

We were in love
We were in love
but you did not know it
at all

Why did you run
Out from the night
I had fallen under
Isn't it cold
without my tears
upon your shoulder

We were in love
We were in love
but you did not know it
at all

Where have you gone
Have you found someone
to lay your cares upon
If I couldn't see it
Then I could believe it
but it's written all over your tongue

That we were in love
We were in love
But you did not know it at all
Track Name: Bruises
You were gone
Long before you left
You were gone
Long before you set the bar too high
You were gone
Long before we said our long goodbye

A lullaby will shelter for so long
til the big bad world comes running
Teeth bared, teeth bared
and a basket full of words that hit and hurt
where it bruises worst

I was gone
Long before you thought
I was gone
Long before we were exclusive
I was gone
Long before you hurt me kindly

A lullaby will shelter for so long
til the big bad world comes running
Teeth bared, teeth bared
and a basket full of words that hit and hurt
where it bruises worst
