Take me back to the coalmine To your humble handmade shrine Inside the church of our bloodline Where our stories intertwine O mother, help me be I am lost upon the open sea In your heart rests a town Where war sounds echo on In your stories I have drowned The water hasn’t gone O mother, help me be I am lost upon the open sea Where you have drowned Where Salacia has been crowned That’s where I am to be found Where siren songs resound May the wind blow strong On the ocean where I belong May my encounters by kind Before time leaves my mind O mother, help me be I am lost upon the open sea Where you have drowned Where Salacia has been crowned That’s where I am to be found Where siren songs resound.

You disappear for so long Solitude for notes Melodies and odes To queens, cities and gods I feel your thoughts A river so wide I’ll be ever buzzing Trying to reach the sun You are a ship that sails away On the lowest of tides You are a light shining night and day In the darkest of times In the darkest of times with you I’ll sail Here, my love Fold up your wings My body’s a nest For a phoenix’s long-deserved rest Tell me the reasons you love me again Explain me your dreams In the land of the predestined stories of men We silently speak About all that is said to be illusory For it cannot be seen Teach me again how to dream like you do I put my nights in your hands Until the blackness that fills my sleep Learns how to dance With the sheets that cover a universe Of water and sand

The pack of wolves is moving slowly Heading straight for the city Running on malignity and fierce like an army There’s murder in their gloomy eyes Won’t bother striking by surprise Eyes on the prize and I’m walking here by their side I will follow. I will catch up I will follow your prints in the snow All they need’s a bended mirror To make themselves look so much bigger Everything needs to be cheaper Everything needs to be quicker I will follow. I will catch up I will follow your prints in the snow Time has learned to speak my tongue How did I end up in here And how will I get out, my dear? My mind gets clear and suddenly there’s no more fear I will follow. I will catch up I will follow your prints in the snow

This morning I woke up This morning I cried Honey, you will live forever in my mind But why can’t you stay here and live my live? I never hurt you, I was never unkind But you’re already leaving, even before I could arrive Honey, won’t you sing me your song one last time? Honey, won’t you sing it, please, for me? Joanie, don’t go

Desert highway Good morning, sunshine Concert Friday One straight line A few more miles Airco and coke Two bright smiles One last smoke Looking left It’s just rock and sand The right window’s showing the same neglected lands Shivering landscapes Eyes slowly closing Try not to let go I’ll never quit smoking I’m glad you’re with me I’m glad you’re here Where the storms meet my rock steady heart I’m glad you’re with me I’m glad you’re here Where the rocks meet an unswerving beat Early sunset A mirror away You never look back You never pray You tend to feel things before I do All my belongings, they’re nothing of value I’m glad you’re with me I’m glad you’re here Where the storms meet my rock steady heart I’m glad you’re with me I’m glad you’re here Where the rocks meet an unswerving beat

“Pain”, she wrote, “is a strange thing” In the letter that she sent “It gets to a place that you can’t really find” She put her heart on the table Took a plate and cutlery And sigh as she’d been left behind A long time ago they’d sing the future to each other Now it’s hard to remember the lines People would write out your life The book’s still on the shelf But those were other times She said “I don’t know where the pain comes from But I feel it late at night” He said “try to sleep with the light on It’ll make it easier to find darkness in your dreams” He said that she would manage And she believed every word. Maybe that was somewhat naïve But now there’s no way back. The time that’s passed has passed Just one direction home She said “I don’t know where the pain comes from But I feel it late at night” He said “try to sleep with the light on It’ll make it easier to find darkness in your dreams”

about

Winston Wutu Brussels, Belgium

Our first EP is out and ready to be heard!

Winston Wutu unravels the threads between life, death, homeliness, adventure, water and sand.

Its band members Koen, Woody, Dries and Mathias all breathe the same air of wist- and graceful music.

Winston Wutu takes you to a desolate, dusty plain where Neil Young, Josh Ritter, Alison Krauss and Ryan Adams can be heard humming in the distance.
