lyrics

I have no memory
Of my family
Without my sisters
There beside me
There is power in what is whispered
The soothing song of my middle sister

Middle sister, 2nd arrival
My beloved, unwitting rival
She learned to side step my confrontation
Silent witness to separation

Separation, it landed heavy
Could feel it coming, but we weren’t ready
I felt an anger that burned and blistered
Set me apart from my younger sisters

They were California bound
They were California bound
A family scattered across the land
They were California bound

Clare O'Connor & Corbin Murdoch Vancouver, British Columbia

Equal parts earnest and incisive, Work Songs is an album by Clare O'Connor and Corbin Murdoch. Originally composed for the theatre, it is a song-cycle that asks what we can salvage from personal loss and political despair.
