about

Recorded on the Tascam in Glynhafod late in 2017, inspired by construction, moving earth and disappearing sheds.

lyrics

Illuminating times on Brighteye
It's different nowadays
I've watched the village change
In the landscapes, I start to settle down

At the end of all those roads
Lie secrets all the old men used to know
Past the club and up, I see them
They're trying to build a hill

Someone told me
They'd ripped it down
Pulled apart and burned
Yesterday

Got talking to a guy
Who moved here in 1952
He'd seem them bringing down the old streets
And building something new

And all the reclaimed land, once churned up and spoilt
Became beautiful
The community was strong, built up from the ground
And nothing ever changed

Someone told me
They'd ripped it down
Pulled apart and burned
Yesterday
