***Written for a couple of songwriting big sisters, who needed cheering up.
I see you there.***

lyrics

She is queen among the witches
Got the whole world in her hand
She wears a crown of silver
And she’s earned every strand
And with every flap of a butterfly wing
She casts her spell on everything
She’s the glue
Holds us all together

She’s a daughter and a mother
And a friend and a lover
Her heart shines like no other
No one can help but love her
And with every flap of a bumblebee wing
She gives new life to everything
She’s true
As the sunrise in the morning

But sometimes
she wonders has she faded
Sometimes
she just can’t face the day
In those times
Friends and song are the skates on the river
That take her away

'Cause when she sings
She grows wings
You're wrapped around her finger like a string
In that moment
her bells of freedom ring
When she sings

She inspires every other
With her brain and with her style
Her face reads like a diary
You can see her come from miles
And with every flap of a raven’s wing
Her songs go off and do their thing
She’s blue
When she forgets her own power

But sometimes
All she can feel is the winter
Sometimes
She don’t know if she belongs
In those times
I hope that she remembers
How much I need those songs

'Cause when she sings
She grows wings
You're wrapped around her finger like a string
In that moment
her bells of freedom ring
When she sings
Her voice rings
With joy in her face
Like a kid swingin’ on a swing
The snow melts off
like the coming of spring
When she sings

about

Kev Corbett Halifax, Nova Scotia

“The man is an exceptional guitar player – for one thing – but also writes extremely clever, finessed, clockwork folk-pop songs whose singable surface belies a tremendous underlying sense of craft. It was really great to see him again.” – Jowi Taylor, Six String Nation

“Well-crafted, skillfully written songs, dazzling guitar playing. Son of a Rudderless Boat is a marvelous listen.” – Penguin Eggs
