about

Kathryn wrote this song many years ago and recorded it on her first solo album, Wanderer. Playing it with The Lasses, giving it a three part harmony, breathed fresh energy into the song.

lyrics

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

The Lasses Amsterdam, Netherlands

Margot and Sophie met at Victor Lacken's Wednesday session in Mulligans and found out their voices went very well together: Margots husky alto and Sophies emotive soprano complement each other rather nicely. Irish traditionals and folkie standards brought to the stage or the street in tender harmony! ... more
