PLEASE READ THE STORY BEHING THIS SONG: eleanorbrownmusic.com/wewillnotbelost/

PLEASE PAY WHAT YOU FEEL.
As an independent artist it costs an average of £900 to produce one professional track. I believe in ‘gift economy’ and I want you to make an informed choice about expressing the value of your gratitude for my music. I want you to access it even if you have no money, so I use a sliding scale from zero and you can pay whatever you can afford. 
Please download, pay as you feel and join my mailing list so we can stay connected.

lyrics

I’ve been living in the wasteland / I’ve been clinging in the dark / I’ve been hearing all these voices and losing hope and heart / from a lineage of silence now I break the biggest vow / so I’m rising from these ashes and speaking truth to power / Oh Yion Do - be my witness be my guide / let me grow a different skin like the selkie in the tides / Oh Yion Da - be my witness be my guide / let me grow a different skin / one thats suited to these times / oh I will not be lost to these times / so I drove into the distance into the blue that won’t arrive / getting lost in all the back roads and in the mountains of my mind / in the highland vast expanses / found an empty barren land / in the sanctity of silence / brought the breath I'd searched to find / Oh Yion Do - be my witness be my guide / let me grow a different skin like the selkie in the tides / Oh Yion Da - be my witness be my guide / let me grow a different skin / one thats suited to these times / oh I will not be lost to these times / Saw a man amongst the forest / when we crossed across the fire / he laid his life down by the oak tree as we breathed his final prayer / we intertwine in our estrangement / we parallel in tender time / so I choose a different story / I choose to face what's mine / Oh Yion Do - be my witness be my guide / let me grow a different skin like the selkie in the tides / Oh Yion Da - be my witness be my guide / let me grow a different skin / one thats suited to these tides / so come back from the edges in this wilderness of mind / on a bruised and broken planet that renews without our kind / this is more than just my story / it is written in the land / in the roots amongst the fir trees yes we rise to overcome / oh we will not be lost to these tides / no we will not be lost to these times...
