about

"Sailor" was co-produced by The Twoks in collaboration with Brad Jackson who would go along to rehearsals and play bass. Brad would help shape the song in pre-production which then influenced the engineering and mixing of the track.

This is the first recording where Xani plays her violin through a Fender amp which gives the overall feeling of the track a dark, gritty vibe which is exactly what Xani and Mark were going for.

"Sailor" was released in November, 2013 at The Espy Front Bar, St Kilda.

lyrics

Hey sailor if you sail again
Take my bottle will ya
I wrote a note, black and blue
Send it for me will ya?
Take it out by sea
Underneath the stars
Sailor if you sail again take my bottle will ya?

Hey Orion if you shine again
Light my passage will ya
I've lost the way, the storm is hit
It makes it hard to see ya
I'm going 'round and upside down
No longer see the shore
Orion if you shine again light my passage will ya

Almost here with nothing to fear
I love my country, love my country
Almost there with silver to spare
I love my country, love my country

Oh Sailor, you come and you go
On your shoulders is the weight of the world
It's your burden so you do what you're told
Oh sailor go on keep searching
Until you find your gold

Oh captain if you speak again
Share your wisdom will ya
You've seen it all and watched them fall
Tell your stories will ya?
How'd you fly and abide by
The laws of all the seas
Captain if you speak again
Share your wisdom will ya?
