Lyrics

Helford Honeymoon

THEN CAME THE WARNING OF EASTERLY WINDS
CALM IS THE CREEK AND LOVING SPIRIT WITHIN
THE MAINLAND AHEAD FOUGHT MILLIONS OF TIDES
IT’S GREEN AS IS FRESH, THE SAME AS YOUR EYES

((THE LAND TO OURSELVES, JUST YOU AND I))

THE TREES BOW DOWN TO US, THE RIGHTFUL GODS OF LOVE
BEFORE YOU SAILED ON THROUGH I COULD WONDER

LAY WITH ME TONIGHT, OUR HELFORD HONEYMOON
BEFORE YOU SAILED ON THROUGH I COULD WONDER

I COULD WONDER
I COULD WONDER

THE RUSTLE OF THE LEAVES, THEY APPLAUDED THE VIEW
A SONG FROM THE JACKDAWS TO GUIDE ME AND YOU
THE RIPPLES OF THE WATER WILL MAP OUT OUR LIVES
THE COVES WILL KEEP SECRETS AS SWAN’S PUREST WHITE

(THE LAND TO OURSELVES, JUST YOU AND I)

A KISS GOODBYE
ON RIVER STREET
A BELL IT CHIMES
FOR ALL TO HEAR

A SECRET TIME
AT THE HARBOUR’S WALL
THE QUIET TIDE
STILL SONAR BLUE

A FISHERMAN’S LAUGH
CUTS THROUGH THE SALTY AIR
A COBBLED PATH
LEADS TO THE SUN

A BAND IT PLAYS
TO THE QUAYSIDE BEAT
WE’RE LOST FOR DAYS
IN FLORAL DANCE

Danvers’ Crimson Skyline

STOP IT NOW OH CAN’T YOU SEE THE WAR IS OVER
STOP SHINING, SHINING THE LIGHT TO MY EYES
MY HISTORY’S NOT WORTH A READ SO DON’T YOU WORRY
I CAN’T TAKE, CAN’T TAKE AN OLD ONE’S SIDE

YOU LET ME FALL
LET ME CRAWL
LET ME CRAWL TO YOU

STOP THE WAVES OH LET ME BREATHE I’M DROWNING
I CAN’T SWIM, CAN’T SWIM AWAY FROM YOUR LIES
ASHES FILL THE AIR THIS HOUSE IS NOW JUST EMBERS
IT’S BURNING, BURNING AWAY THROUGH THE NIGHT

CRIMSON SKYLINE TOOK MY DREAMS
TO THE OCEAN FLOOR
RHODODENDRONS RED AND GREEN
LIKE THE LOVE SO TORN

Reviews

“On behalf of the Daphne du Maurier website, we would like to add our congratulations to Davey for creating such a wonderful music collection. We are sure you will all agree it is an excellent tribute to Daphne du Maurier and something beautiful to listen to. Get your copy now!”
dumaurier.org
“Helford Honeymoon is his most ambitious work to date, casting watercolour excellence over the latest of his inspirations, the work of Daphne du Maurier.”
Paul Schiernecker
"Its weaving of different genres, romantic yet distant concepts, and skilled musicianship makes Davey Hal's first record a worthy listen. An experimental, unusual, but beautiful first offering."
Kate Crudgington
"From the piano run on ‘Soothe The Grey’, the opener, you are invited into Hal’s world, a heady mix of late night love stories in a cocktail lounge."
Paul Schiernecker
