about

BLOODLINES
My Great Grandfather Henryk survived the First World War and then became a policeman. He was arrested and taken away from his family when the Nazis invaded. His story runs parallel to my Grandfather’s and against all odds, survived the Second World War to reunite with his wife. Jerzy and Henryk did not meet again in person. It seems incredible that one person could experience so much, survive such adversity and put their life back together again. Henryk’s journey will be another story, but the determination to reconnect with his love and family needed writing about. As a touring musician, I often feel the need to get away and see the world. It is almost immediately followed by a powerful need to get back home to my family. I try to imagine what they must have felt being pulled away like that. I can’t.

lyrics

Bloodlines, left in decay
Shared minds, stolen away
And they cling to fate
Geese fly, freedom to roam
They call as they pass by
Calling you home
Hold up, hold on,
Leave the route clear
For love to pull him home again
Hold up hold on,
There's more than the air and time
To keep our bloodline
We are the anchor
Forged in the fire
Stronger than blood
Old as love
Don't go
Leave the way clear
Quiet, quiet roars,
Lines left, perfectly flawed
And they fade to grey
Bloodlines, left in decay
Shared minds, stolen away
And they cling to fate
Hold up, hold on
Leave the route clear
For love to pull him home again
Hold up hold on
There's more than the air and time
To keep our bloodline
Stronger than blood
Old as love
Don't go
Leave the way clear
Stronger than blood
Old as love
Don't go
Leave the way clear
