21/03/12 God knows I done a few things over the years that nearly took my life but out here on sea it's so raw, the element of water, the power is extraordinary.


The day Mount Etna swallowed the sun
We started out from Lipari
Under cover of darkness we'd begun
Our journey to our third sea
Seven days with the sun holding high
Had shown our weather for a week
Head to the gap at the toe of Italy
To the wild Ionian sea

I said to my brother
A love like no other
When he'll return from the other side of earth?

In Lipari we had wine, we had it fine
I found my brother in song
The earth's fuse burned on the skyline
The weather told us we must push on
Eve she tilts thirty to forty-five
Any more and I feel the threat
I've done so much to endanger my life
But I've never thought so much of death

I said to my sister
God knows I've missed her
Singing beside me on this very stage

There ain't no answer but to push on
There ain't no stepping off this bus
I've thought so much and I've sang so many songs
Now I only can think of us

I said to my mother
She knows I love her
For everything she's got, there ain't no words
And I said to my father
He knows what he's got here
But I ain't written the last line yet

The day Mount Etna swallowed the sun
We started out from Lipari
