about

Originally released on the album "Leap Of Faith" by Mint Biscuit (2020), this version recorded 2022.

A tale of Viking invasion, and although it may sound peaceful and pastoral, "and now we swim soft shades of shadow", there has actually been a bit of bloodthirsty pillaging going on "the victim's quote we shall not remember". Inspired by the Viking invasion of Holy Island.

lyrics

Summer Song

In a momentary lapse of reason
You changed the weather, changed the season
You sang out clear, it won’t be long
Until we hear our summer song

Past winter’s ruin we sailed our boats on
Until we reached tall reeds on the seashore
We knew our fear here did not belong
We sang out clear our summer song

And now we swim soft shades of shadow
The victim’s quote we shall not remember
The ships we sail will carry us on
We sing out clear our summer song

We sing out clear our summer song
We sing out clear our summer song

Original lyrics as below:

Summer Song

In a momentary lapse of reason
You changed the weather, changed the season
Through winter's ruin, it won’t be long
Until we hear our summer song

Past winter’s ruin we sailed our boats on
The lake of fire was freezing over
With our desire, we kept ourselves warm
We sang out clear our summer song

And through the dark shone shafts of summer
The night was past, the winter over
You touched my hand, as I leaned over
To hear you sing our summer song

To hear you sing our summer song
To hear you sing our summer song
