I wrote this song as a trilogy but we only ever recorded this and it's sister song the "Bells of Lindisfarne" This is about a man's grief, anger and violence when his wife leaves him for another woman."You are everything". It is often said that men often see things in simple terms Good and bad , Black and white. Sometimes saying things like "My Wife". Ownership over someone is such an outdated idea but with that simplicity comes a fragility. If we could understand more about that insecurity.



After you loved me I lost.
I had to learn to wear the cost.
But now I know all about.
Great misery without you.
We used to walk about hand in hand.
Everybody talks about nobody understands me.
Like you used to do
When you loved me. Before left me and nailed someone else.

Do you hold her like you held me.
Don’t you tell me no.
I’m not crazy it’s no longer true.
I was blind. I lost my mind. I could not see.
You were everything to me.

I blazed a trail with a gun.
I stood alone under the sun.
But will I stop and forgive.
I need to find a reason to live now.
Is it a little thing deep inside?
A tiny little wedding ring like the one that binds you
To me totally.
Laws on your side. Times on my side and our oath to god.

Chorus repeat.
You are everything.
