Hiraeth Music

*This song is inspired by the many beloved European stories of the star-crossed lovers. Two of my favorites are Romeo & Juliet, and Tristan & Isolde. I’d even argue that Brunhild and Sigurd (or Siegfried) were another star-crossed pair.

*I wrote this because these stories represent several vitally important things to me:
1) They represent unconditional love and the sacrifice and devotion that comes with that, which is something that is becoming so rare in today’s world.
2) They also represent the unification of two halves to a whole...Completion.

*Without both our men and our women, we cannot continue our existence. We not only complement one another, but we also complete each other. That is exactly how nature intended it to be.*

Lyrics:
Star-crossed
Cloud covered names
Hear me sing
As the tears fall like rain

Against the rocks
A beating heart in pain
It knows not
How to be free again

Sweet lonesome
Eyes full of fear
Hear my voice
As the ending draws near

A wave of calm
Drifting slowly away from here
Following
The one you held most dear

Souls bound
Like a gemel tree
Hear this song
As the wind blows the leaves

Into a space
Where the lovers rest in peace
Who risked it all
Loving unconditionally

"Home" By: Hiraeth

Lyrics:
Been burdened by truth alone
Heavy as a tombstone
A darkness, for I am prone

A tainted modern world
The fallen and fractured
The slaves and their masters

Home
Home
Home
Home

I know that itʼs all wrong
I donʼt know what can be done
Hardly anywhere left to run

Been yearning for so long
For a place that I feel at home
For eyes that can see my soul

Home
Home
Home
Home

Iʼm sinking, I'm sinking fast
I just need something to last
Freedom without a mask

Been searching far and wide
With no reason left to hide
I just need you by my side

Home
Home
Home
Home

*Jack Hwite did the majority of the work on this song so I'd like to give him such a BIG Thank you!!! When he said that he wanted to cover this old traditional folk song with me, I got so excited! Who better to collaborate on a song like this than Jack Hwite himself? He's one of my all-time favorite songwriters and a very dear friend, so this was truly an honor.

North Country Maid

Lyrics:
A North country maid up to London has strayed
Although with her nature it did not agree
And she's wept and she's sighed
And she's wrung her hands and cried
Oh I wish once again in the North I could be

Where the oak and the ash
And the bonny rowan tree
Are all growin’ green
In my North country

How sadly I roam and lament my dear home
Where lads and lasses are making the hay
Where the bells they do ring
And the little birds they sing
And the maidens and meadows are pleasant and gay

Where the oak and the ash
And the bonny rowan tree
Are all growin’ green
In my North country

No doubt if I please I could marry with ease
For where bonnie lasses are lovers will come
But the lad that I wed
Must be North country bred
And must carry me back to my North country home

Where the oak and the ash
And the bonny rowan tree
Are all growin’ green
In my White country

Drivin' down the road singin' along to THE MAMAS AND THE PEPES like...

*A BIG Thank YOU to my dear friend who helped me bring this song to life!!!

Lyrics:

Thereʼs something within
That I cannot shake
A feeling remains
Of what? I canʼt say

Iʼm thinking of words
That Iʼve read before
The feeling remains
Thereʼs no closing the door

(Chorus)

I could tell you the name
Of this writer well-known
But the feeling remains
The seed, planted & grown

Itʼs an unspoken truth
In a bookmarked page
But the feeling remains
Of a Saxon enraged

(Chorus)

You may have guessed
What these words suggest
So Iʼll end with a quote
And it goes like this:

“It wasn’t preached to the crowd
It wasn't taught by the state
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate”

(Chorus

Kaleidoscope
Lyrics by: Nullus, Music by: Hiraeth

Rays of light beam through the glass,
Renewal relieves a nightmare past.
Droplets of fear turn to hope,
The world is a great kaleidoscope.

Glimmering light throws a shade,
This is not the world our fathers made.
Overcome, the body slopes,
Hell envelops the kaleidoscope.

Close the eyes, ignore the scorn,
Renewal will elude the next morn.
Be warned, this is not a trope,
It’s time to clean the kaleidoscope.

Lyrics:
They cannot make what we have made
A lesson learned is not forgiving
Shattered dirty bloody blade
When we're done we'll keep on living

Our spirit bound to all that burns
Fire is the fuel, we are the pure
The sleepers wake and once we yearned
A deep regret no vision too unsure

Run away run and hide
The day has come in comes the tide
Run away run and hide
This dream alive and sanctified

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thank you for listening!!!

*A BIG Thank you to ForNull for creating this incredible remix as well as the video.

The video is made up of footage from the Dresden bombings. As tragic as this is, let it be a reminder of the fact that it's up to us to make sure that there are no more brother wars. RIP to all of the Dresden victims.
*Note: If you would like to learn more about the Dresden bombing, then I recommend checking out the documentary: Hellstorm.

When The Lion Awakens
By: Hiraeth

Lyrics:
Iʼll never say that Iʼve been some victim
Or that bad luck rains down upon me
Because I know that I helped build this prison
Out of this cage now, Iʼm breakinʼ free
Free from this cage soon, soon I will be

Our pacifism
Comes to an end
When the Lion awakens

Once weʼre awake from our hibernation
Wont be long till the whole world will see
That you canʼt take the beast from the lion
Even as tame as that lion might seem
No, you canʼt take the beast from the lion
No matter how tame that lion may be

Our pacifism
Comes to an end
When the Lion awakens

*PLEASE READ: This song is dedicated to all White people who are really struggling right now whether it's with addiction or depression, or the like, and for those who have lost loved ones due to substance abuse or suicide. My heart truly goes out to all of you. Please know that you aren't alone. We are all in this struggle together. It's so important to be good to the ones you love, because sometimes life is shorter than we expect it to be.

Not Alone
By: Hiraeth

Lyrics:
Donʼt
Fill your pockets
With stones
To sink in the abyss
I know
Itʼs hard to live this way
Just donʼt
Give up on it yet

Itʼs a darkened road abandoned by hope
Feeling so alone cuts like a blade through stone
Feeling so alone cuts like a blade through stone

Donʼt go
We need you here
Just know
Youʼre not alone
Thereʼs warmth
In this cold dark world
A love
You need to know

Itʼs a tragic world, suicidal undertones
So many wounded souls, our kin who will not grow old
So many wounded souls, our kin who will not grow old

No One Can Replace Us
By: Hiraeth

Lyrics:
Blood-bound unbroken
No words to be spoken
A pulsing, a pressure
Ancestral treasure

Heart beats, a war drum
To rebuild our kingdom
A kinship, connection
Weʼll reclaim our freedom

The throne canʼt be taken
No one can replace us
Weʼll honor our fallen
Their reasons for fighting

A force of creation
Re-birthing a nation
Exploring the highest
Nothing can stop us

The Day Will Come
By: Hiraeth

Lyrics:
The day will come
Where we cannot run
When the darkest phase
Of the war is on

Weʼll find our place
And fight with grace
Never to be struck down
By the doubts of our own

Weʼll wake at dawn
Where the sun has shown
How we make our home
And survive the cold

*This song is dedicated to all of the innocent people who lost their lives during the 1945 bombings in Dresden, Germany. May it serve as a reminder that it is up to us to make sure that something like this never happens again. Without the support of each other, we wonʼt stand a chance.*

Sunset Over The West
By: Hiraeth

Lyrics:
Rhythms of ocean tides
Empires rise and so they fall
When the sun sets again to rise
Itʼs like we were never there at all
Itʼs like we were never there at all

Only broken stones remain
Buildings crumbled to the ground
All the glory soon will fade
Something lost thatʼs never found
Something lost thatʼs never found

From The Ashes We Rise
By: Hiraeth

Lyrics:
As the fires burn I watch in awe
The world we know quickens to fall
The war is fought losing many lives
For a life out of the ashes to rise

Rise Phoenix rise
Rise Phoenix rise

Not burdened by the choices made
But wiser to the actions we take
Moving through wastelands set ablaze
Knowing our debts have been fully paid

Rise Phoenix rise
Rise Phoenix rise

As the embers from the fires remain
We cross into a new terrain
Where we can begin again
The tears from our eyes washed by the rain

Rise Phoenix rise
Rise Phoenix rise
Rise Phoenix rise

Homeward Bound
By: Hiraeth

Lyrics:

We walk this darkened path among the webs of liars
We travel down this road with nothing but our fire
As we walk step by step, our bodies never to tire
For we are going home to build our heartsʼ desire

Home
Weʼre going home

Homeward bound no slowing down across the muddy waters
Nights are long but weʼll be strong and go a little bit farther
Bound by blood, our spiritsʼ one, the truth has been discovered
As we walk side by side we carry our weight together

Home
Weʼre going home
Home
Weʼre going home

Rough Waters
By: Hiraeth

Lyrics:

The waves
The waves are getting heavy
The ship is almost flooded
Got to bail the water out
My brothers work together now
Keep us all from sinking down
From sinking right on down
Right on right on down
Right on down

The body of the serpent is winding
Breaks the calm, the waves are so frightening
As sickness spreads, the children are crying
Fight decay with bolts of white lightning

The body of the serpent is winding
Breaks the calm, the waves are so frightening
As sickness spreads, the children are crying
Fight decay with bolts of white lightning

Endure the waves of the sickened
Beware of the evil thatʼs hidden
Letʼs shed off all our dead skin
Weʼll be reborn in the morning
In the morning
In the morning

The waves
The waves are getting heavy
The ship is almost flooded
Got to bail the water out
My brothers work together now
Keep us all from sinking down
From sinking right on down
Right on right on down
Right on down

The body of the serpent is winding
Breaks the calm, the waves are so frightening
As sickness spreads, the children are crying
Fight decay with bolts of white lightning

The body of the serpent is winding
Breaks the calm, the waves are so frightening
As sickness spreads, the children are crying
Fight decay with bolts of white lightning

Endure the waves of the sickened
Beware of the evil thatʼs hidden
Letʼs shed off all our dead skin
Weʼll be reborn in the morning
In the morning
In the morning

Winterʼs Age
By: Hiraeth

Lyrics:

Our leaders take us to no where
Instructing to destroy whatʼs there
Advancement of the decadent
Not knowing where we all stand

This is a time of the wandering lost
Words have no meaning
With the translation gone
History written & the storyʼs wrong
The day is short, the night is long

Please help me dig us out
Of the grave that we walked on down
One breath is all we need
To release the grasp of deceit
Please help to pull me out
Of this hole that Iʼve fallen down

Our leaders take us to no where
Instructing to destroy whatʼs there
Advancement of the decadent
Not knowing where we all stand

This is a time of the wandering lost
Words have no meaning
With the translation gone,
History written & the storyʼs wrong
The day is short, the night is long

Please help me dig us out
Of the grave that we walked on down
One breath is all we need
To release the grasp of deceit
Please let me help you out
Of this hole that youʼve fallen down

Western Woes
By: Hiraeth

Lyrics:
Idle hands curse the minds of a greater vision
Indolence of the youth, a youth imprisoned
Engulfed by TV screens in isolation
Ostracized by the ones who preach acceptance

Itʼs getting old
so old
So old

Dollar bills price our worth in a broken world
What is sought is down the road on every billboard
Parasites look for truth to best distort
They say weʼre blessed but weʼre actually cursed

Itʼs gotten cold
so cold
so cold

Sugar highs and toxic lows around every corner
“No need to fix whatʼs broken, when you can buy another”
TV shows of teenage woes and inter-racial lovers
Invaders come and expect us to hand it all over

Itʼs gotten low
so low
so low

Hiraeth is an acoustic solo project that aims to express the feelings associated with the rough translation of the Welsh word.

It means:
A homesickness for a home to which you cannot return, a home which maybe never was; the nostalgia, the yearning, the grief for lost places of your past.

***I genuinely appreciate anyone who's willing to take the time to listen to my music.***
