Snow 02:57
It's winter all over again Dark and cold over again Though there's beauty in snow, I know It will all melt away, I know Winter all over again Daffodils hiding again I was sure the cracks were mending I could feel my heart expanding, to you Winter all over again You can try and catch a snowflake and I do But try and hold it close it disappears, just like you Winter all over again I suggest you're staying in I can't tell you when it's over If you'll ever be my lover again Winter all over again Winter all over again Winter all over again

Well you treated me bad You chased her away You said you wanted me back But that never stayed You want to make up your mind But you never do And all of this time I've been waiting for you Well I'm not hanging 'round no more I'm not hanging 'round no more 'cause there's birds on the line And spring in the air And it's about time That I started to care About something that's golden Something that's free Something that's precious And right next to me I'm not hanging 'round no more I'm not hanging 'round no more So hello darling Don't you look fine Would you like to go walking Lose track of the time Lose track of the evening Lose track of the stars Lose track of the ending In each other's arms 'cause I'm not hanging 'round no more I'm not hanging 'round no more I'm not hanging 'round no more I'm not hanging 'round no more

She is leaving the city behind her Headed towards the mountains out on the west He is grieving 'cause he knows he'll never find her Though he promised he loved her the best Yeah he promised he loved her the best There were the parties and there were the people Ballgowns and breakdowns in a town that doesn't sleep Want to be a big star but he wouldn't let her too far She was a promise he intended to keep She was a promise he intended to keep Love has gone gone gone, gone beyond her And the days grow short but the nights they grow longer And the west wind rocks her to sleep with a song singing layla layla love has gone gone gone layla layla love has gone There were the glances, late night romances She stayed at home waiting up through the night Her bed grew colder and her eyes grew older She said I gotta leave here before the morning light I've got to pack my bags and leave before the morning light 'Cause loving or leaving I don't know which one is harder You're just so good at making me stay All of those vows they mean nothing now I'll be at the ocean at the end of the day I'll be at the ocean at the end of the day

Bittersweet 04:36
Things that are to come Hold on tight or please untie the rope Cry and fly to freedom or never give up hope open up the locks and let te water flow where’s the sign from up above to let me know Bittersweet, pictures in my head Bittersweet the bumpy road ahead Bittersweet clouds that block the sun Bittersweet, bittersweet, the things that are to come What about the things we’re loosing What about what’s right and what is wrong What about the path we’re choosing When to stop the fight and when to move along If only we could tell our future Than we needn’t be so sad We could see the thing we’d gain By letting go of what we had

Nightfall 04:03
I remember the first time you came to my door And I told you all my heart was pouring out I was worrying about the guy that I lived with at the time And you laughed so loud you chased my fears away That was thirty months ago in a place I left below When I followed you all this way I’ll be home before nightfall and I’ll sleep in your bed And I dream of all the things we'll never have I will take my lead from you I will jump in if you do And I realize how fortunate I am That I get to call you my friend And we hear the freight train in the morning When lightning is coloring the sky And the cedars in the yard are a million miles apart And the rain falls but everything stays dry I’ll be home before nightfall and I’ll sleep in your bed And I dream of all the things we'll never have I will take my lead from you I will jump in if you do And I realize how fortunate I am That I get to call you my friend There's a river and it's called the Colorado And it flows where no riverboat can go But you know that you and me like the water we are free So please let me lighten your load I’ll be home before nightfall and I’ll sleep in your bed And I dream of all the things we'll never have I will take my lead from you I will jump in if you do And I realize how fortunate I am That I get to call you my friend

Horo Johnny 02:18
Chorus: Horo Johnny won't you come home soon The winter's coming and I'm all alone A candle's burning in my window love And the wild geese they are flying home A young man's love is something to behold. First it burns and then it soon turns cold. He'll whisper in the moonlight and your hand he'll hold, Then he'll vanish with the morning dew chorus He'll court you in the meadow in the summertime. When first you love, it is the sweetest time. He'll promise you a golden ring and then one day He will vanish with the morning dew. chorus You'll be waiting for his footsteps in the lonely room Listen by the window. He'll be coming soon. Your heart it will be breaking by the early morn. For he'll vanish with the morning dew.

Island Man 04:39
The Island man is waving waving us goodbye His lips they are a smiling teardrop in his eye You think that you are lonely you've got a friend We know what you are feeling we understand oh... And when the birds go silent and storms come rolling on Plunge into the darkness and turn it into song Times your spirit wanders tims you soul roams Be sure to find us in the tall grass your song will bring us home oh... I'm right beneath the shivering just like you Beachglass grows weary but the light still shines through oh... You think that you are lonely You've got a friend
8.
Craigie Hill 04:32
It being in spring and the small birds they were singing Down by a shady arbour I carelessly did stray Thrushes they were warbling And violets they were charming For to hear two lovers talking a while I did delay She said, "My love, don't leave me, for yet another season Though fortune may be pleasing I'll come along with you I'll forsake friends and relations and leave this Irish nation And to the bonnie Bann banks forever I'll bid adieu" He said, "My love, don't grieve me or yet annoy my patience You know I love you dearly although I'm going away I'm going to some foreign nation to purchase a plantation For to comfort us hereafter all in America." So fare thee well, sweet Craigie Hill, where ofttimes I have wandered I never thought in my childhood I'd part you any more But we're sailing on the ocean for honour and promotion And the bonny boat's sailing way down by Doorin shore
9.
The Cuckoo 03:21
Oh the cuckoo she's a pretty bird, and she warbles as she flies But she never says Cuckoo till the 4th day of July I'm gonna build me a log cabin on the mountain so high So I can see my darling as he goes passing by I've played cards in England, and I've played cards in Spain And I beat you all over this wide world and I will beat you once again. Jack of diamonds, jack of diamond I've known you of old you have robbed my poor pocket of their silver and their gold
10.
That Lesson 04:39
I'll admit, it's time to leave I needed away from here It was great my dear but I have to run So fun, we'll do it again A kiss on the cheek that how they know where we've been We've been far far away, couldn't we stay Teach me that lesson, just one more time I've almost got the answer, almost memorize the line Ask me the question, don't let me lie I'll tell you the truth, I'll look you straight in the eye At least I'll try There's time, there's time to sit with it all I am not ready to fall I wanna fly, and catch a piece of that sky I wanna fly From this height, there's no cars there's no crowds It's hard to tell the mountains from the clouds a certain moment of peace, before we release Teach me that lesson, just one more time I've almost got the answer, almost memorize the line Ask me the question, don't let me lie I'll tell you the truth, I'll look you straight in the eye At least I'll try
11.
I don't mind the rain or the rolling see The weary night never worries me But the hardest time in a sailors Is to watch the sun as it dies away Here's one more day on the Grey Funnel Line The widest ship that sails the sea Is still a prison for the likes of me But give me wings like Noah's dove And I'll sail up harbor to the girl I love Here's one more day on the Grey Funnel Line Oh lord if dreams were only real I'd put my hand on that wooden wheel And with all my heart I'd turn her 'round And tell the boys that we're homeward bound Here's one more day on the Grey Funnel Line I'll pass the time like some machine Until blue water turns to green And I'll dance on down that walk ashore And sail the Grey Funnel Line not more And sail the Grey Funnel Line no more

about

Margot Merah and Sophie Janna (The Lasses) met Kathryn Claire at a singing session in Muligans Irish Bar, Amsterdam. Sharing a love for harmonies and storytelling through music, they soon realized that together they could deliver both heartfelt ballads and lively songs with equal measures of joy and musicality. An evening of music in Amsterdam turned into a wonderful cross-cultural collaboration. Over the past three years, Margot, Sophie and Kathryn have gone back and forth between their respective homes, sharing their songs, communities and families with one another.

Finally, their musical and personal friendship has resulted in an album together, recorded live at De Parel van Zuilen with a wonderful audience of family, fans and friends. Featuring both original and traditional songs, this album highlights each woman’s unique style of songwriting and singing while weaving in the trio's trademark three part harmonies.
