    Lyrics to two original songs written for the album:

    Bring It Back by Naomi Pigram

    She was twenty three when you took her baby
    She was all but three
    Took her from her home
    Now the baby don’t belong
    She forgot her momma’s song
    Now the baby don’t belong
    She forgot her momma’s songAnd now she’s dancing like a flower in a cruel storm
    And she’ll cry but her voice don’t make the darkness go away
    She’ll cry: My baby’s gone It’s a quiet night back on the homestead
    There’s a distant cry from the night before
    And the pain it just goes on with a broken momma’s song
    Yeah the pain it just goes on with a broken momma’s song

    And now she’s dancing like a flower on her cruel storm
    She’ll cry but her voice don’t make the darkness go away
    She’ll cry: My baby’s gone My baby’s gone, my baby’s gone, my baby’s gone
    Oh there’s been a storm cloud falling on this empty house
    Empty pages of the story that just can’t be found
    I’ve searched this whole damned place trying to bring her song back home

    And there’s a storm cloud falling, an empty house
    Searched this whole damned place trying to bring it home
    Baby’s gonna bring it Baby’s gonna bring it back home
    She’s gonna bring it back home Baby’s gonna bring it back home
    She’s gonna bring it back, bring it back, bring it back
    Baby’s gonna bring it back home (Bring it back home)
    She’s gonna bring it back, bring it back, bring it back
    Baby’s gonna bring it back home
    Storm cloud on this empty house
    Baby’s gonna bring it back home now
    Baby’s gonna bring it, baby’s, baby’s gonna bring it back home

    Taken by Pearl Smith

    Taken, we were taken away
    I remember that day
    Here’s what I need to say
    How come you never asked me
    How I felt about it
    We were living happily
    And now I’m tryin’ to move on
    You know that you done wrongTaken, we were taken away
    Taken, we were taken awayHow come you look down on me
    Lucky to have a chance
    Living happily
    And now I’m tryin’ to be strongHow come you always say to me
    How I talk about them
    We were living happily
    And now I’m tryin’ to hold on
    I know what’s going onTaken, we were taken away
    Taken, we were taken away
    Taken, we were taken away
    That’s what I need to say
