  • Capercaillie - Waiting For The Wheel To Turn --- music video clip

    3:50

    Waiting For The Wheel To Turn from LP Delirium (1991)

    Lyrics:

    Living in a place with time
    Living in a place where reality is
    Standing on a big broad line
    Watching it all go by, ah,
    But you're taking it all away
    The music, the tongue and the old refrains
    You're coming here to play
    But you're pulling the roots from a dying age

    Remember the Buachaille Mor
    Reaching for the skies from the barren shores
    Watching o'er the village of Burns
    And counting the days since the gael kept home
    Well, the stranger claims it now
    Sitting like a king with his gold from the south
    Don't you see the waves of wealth
    Washing away the soul from the land?

    Chorus:
    Here come the Clearances, my friend
    Silently our history is coming to life again
    We feel the breeze from the storm to come
    And up and down this coast
    We're waiting for the wheel to turn

    Free were the fields of fern
    Free was the fishing in the coves of care
    Empty are the homes of old
    Empty for the sake of summer's cause
    Yes, you're taking it all away
    The music, the tongue and the old refrains
    You're coming here to play
    But you're pulling the roots from a dying age

    (Chorus twice)

  • Fear a Bhàta - CAPERCAILLIE

    3:38

    Recorded at The Old Fruitmarket Glasgow for Celtic Connections.

    Karen Matheson - vocals

    Composed in the late 18th Century by Jane Finlayson of Tong, Lewis for a young Uig fisherman, Donald MacRae.

    The following is the English translation:

    chorus
    Boatman, o ho ro eile
    Boatman, o ho ro eile
    Boatman, o ho ro eile
    A fond farewell wherever you go

    I often look from the highest hill
    To try and see the boatman
    Will you come today or tomorrow
    If you don't come at all I will be downhearted

    My heart is broken and bruised
    With tears often flowing from my eyes
    Will you come tonight or will I expect you
    Or will I close the door with a sad sigh?

    I often ask people on boats
    Whether they see you or whether you are safe
    Each of them says
    That I was foolish to fall in love with you.

    English Translation:

    When day is over and life is done
    Mine eyes have closed and my strength has gone
    Oh westwards take me and quietly lay me
    In Aignish graveyard beside the sea

    There please leave me by kith and kin
    By parents kindly and all my friends
    By white waves pounding on beaches sounding
    By Aignish graveyard beside the sea

    Who will, unless the young men will.

    From the album ~ Capercaillie ~ (1994)
    Vocals: Karen Matheson

    When you return they'll see
    My words are true

    I went to the hazelwood yesterday
    Seeking hazelnuts for food
    But on every branch and twig
    Was your pursuing face
    I went to bed early last night
    To escape you in sleep
    But you kept me awake till
    I'd make you a song

    When you return they'll see
    My words are true

    I'd wish we were torn asunder
    Were we not apart
    Let your presence replace my image of you
    And how I'd rejoice
    You've brought me to foolish babbling
    Tiring friends with praise of you
    When you return they'll see that
    My words are true

    When you return they'll see
    My words are true
    They'll see mountains dance with ripples
    Mole and eagle step the reel
    Red rasp held by kind sea-tangle
    Sport before their eyes
    My words are true
    When you return...

    Lyrics:
    Spring in Macedonia
    The last clean pocket on a blood soaked coat
    In a state of claustrophobia
    waiting for the rain to wash it all out

    Fear in their eyes, did the crucifix lie
    Did the words of the church run dry
    Fear in their eyes, did the crucifix lie
    Did the words of the church run dry

    I'm a witness to the moon and the stars above
    I'm aware of the crimson sky
    I'm a witness to the crumbling walls as well
    But I'm not your alibi

    Meeting on the road to Basra
    You half blind in a blood soaked coat
    me I'm a fallen angel
    fallen from the burning tree of doubt

    Fear in their eyes, did the crucifix lie
    Did the words of the church run dry
    Fear in their eyes, did the crucifix lie
    did the words of the church run dry.

    I'm a witness to the moon and the stars above
    I'm aware of the crimson sky
    I'm a witness to the crumbling walls as well
    But I'm not your alibi.

    War is the last sensation
    the final song with the longest note
    like a silence, never broken
    war is the book that nobody wrote.

    Fear in their eyes, did the crucifix lie
    Did the words of the church run dry
    Fear in their eyes, did the crucifix lie
    Did the words of the church run dry.

    I;m a witness to the moon and the stars above
    I'm aware of the crimson sky
    I'm a witness to the crumbling walls as well
    But I'm not your alibi
