about

After our US spring tour in 2016, Sophie went to visit a musician friend in Austin, Texas. After a few days she borrowed his bike, that had no lights and no lock, so all she could do was pedal on and sing melodies, recording them on her phone. That's how this song was born...

lyrics

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

about

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
