We built a world
Made up the rules
Sailed the streams of midnight dreams
We used to joke
We shared a hope
All was well inside our shell

How things went wrong
I do not know
Now i'm alone
Down and alone

I haven't smiled since I heard the story
Now the days that go by hold nothing for me
I have seen in the light there is nothing holy
And the girl at my side can never hold me

We saw the height of the heavens above us
She carries on as I live through the storm
While she is flying I look up from the bottom
Lord i'm ready to come home

Cause you're the only one who can save me now
Show me a way out of here
Late in the night when I come to you
Open your arms again

The Balladeers Glasgow

The Balladeers are a psychedelic 3-piece from Glasgow with an ear for timeless melody and a melting pot of sound and styles.

Medieval riffs, 60's influences, romantic poetry, nursery rhymes and carnival fairground sounds. Blues and classical arrangements intertwine with gypsy stylings, and jazz and afro-based rhythms are all thrown into this insane mix, bound together with a distinctly minor key.
