New Music Monday – My version of Nick Cave’s “The Ship Song”

Hell yeah…it’s New Music Monday! This week, #NMM returns to its normal scheduled programming. Not that there aren’t lots more fun things in store with my new album. Speaking of which, if you haven’t gotten your hands on a copy yet, here’s where you can:

If you’d like a signed copy of the CD, order through my website here

If you just want the download get it on Amazon or iTunes

Back to the new music. This week, I’m doing a cover of Nick Cave’s beautiful, “The Ship Song”:

The Ship Song

Come sail your ships around me
And burn your bridges down
We make a little history, baby
Every time you come around

Come loose your dogs upon me
And let your hair hang down
You are a little mystery to me
Every time you come around

We talk about it all night long
We define our moral ground
But when I crawl into your arms
Everything comes tumbling down

Come sail your ships around me
And burn your bridges down
We make a little history, baby
Every time you come around

Come loose your dogs upon me
And let your hair hang down
You are a little mystery to me
Every time you come around

Your face has fallen sad now
For you know the time is nigh
When I must remove your wings
And you, you must try to fly

Come sail your ships around me
And burn your bridges down
We make a little history, baby
Every time you come around

Come loose your dogs upon me
And let your hair hang down
You are a little mystery to me
Every time you come around
