“Oh whisper me words in the shape of a bay” ~ Emily Barker from “Nostalgia”

*I had set this up to post on Sunday, or so I thought, but found it in my drafts . . .

I really love how I find some of the most beautiful music through the mysteries that I watch. This one is a real beauty:

Music by Emily Barker and The Red Clay Halo, music adapted for television series “Wallander,” as seen on Masterpiece Mystery


Tram wires cross Melbourne skies
Cut my red heart in two
My knuckles bleed down Johnston Street
On a door that shouldn’t be in front of me

Twelve thousand miles away from your smile
I’m twelve thousand miles away from me
Standing on the corner of Brunswick
Got the rain coming down and mascara on my cheek

Oh whisper me words in the shape of a bay
Shelter my love from the wind and the waves

Crow fly be my alibi
And return this fable on your wing
Take it far away to where gypsies play
Beneath metal stars by the bridge

Oh write me a beacon so I know the way
Guide my love through night and through day

Only the sunset knows my blind desire for the fleeting
Only the moon understands the beauty of love
When held by a hand like the aura of nostalgia

  1. Heard it on Wallander closing credits… beautiful; simple arrangement – again just simple and perfect, beautiful.
