ships might be built for sailing, my love, an easel’s made for painting
but you ain’t no sailor and I’ll never be camera shy
my heart wants to go one way my mind don’t agree
cause they, they have fallen out recently
well she said "will I praise again? oh will I praise again?"

I can’t believe I’ve only realised today how seriously underappreciated Ruth de Turberville is - especially when you think about how the cello was such a big part of what makes Once I Was An Eagle great. Oh, but the cello and backing vocals in this! And all alongside Laura’s usual goddess-like performance!
