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: We Want the World
Sometimes we want the world
But the world only wants one of us
And we're careless with our hearts

Sometimes we want to care
Insofar as we find somebody to love
We're luckless with our hearts

Sometimes we want it back
Or to the back of us
You've a blackbird in your mouth
A blackbird in your mouth
How loveily she sings
Track Name: The Other Side
We've seen it much too much
Love is not enough
Both caught in this flood
O, dear love
You're lost

I want to see you
On the other side

Here's one for us
The water and the rust
Slow march on and on
Without you, no-ones won

I want to see you
On the other side

Here
I feel the touch
The movement and the rush
Summoning the part of you
Still holding on

I want to see you
On the other side
Track Name: Harden My Heart
O'er the hill we go
Half a bomb struck loam
I pray God takes your tears
As his own

Harden my heart
Harden my heart
As in Egypt

Under ocean lies
Half a million wires
and the trawlers prize
Dies alone

Harden my heart
Harden my heart
As in Egypt

Keep your firstborn love
Safe between your hands
This half-dead, bitter one
It is all that my life understands

Harden my heart
Harden my heart
As in Egypt
Track Name: Champagne and Old Habits (live)
Love we've been together for too long
to be dishonest
And love we've been apart for too long
to be misjudged
But I still want you to put your heart into my place
Let's go back

Love I've been alotted so much hurt
and I've been through it
But I bet you've got something up your sleeve
To add to it
But I still want you to put your hand into my place
And let's go back

Champagne and old habits
Take me here again
Champagne and old habits

Well my friends say take your number off my phone
And I'm gonna do it
But I'll still call you in my sleep
Take me back

Champagne and old habits
Champagne, you've a lot to answer
Champagne
Your making me sing

Take me back
