James Vincent McMorrow-Cavalier

James Vincent McMorrow was born and raised in north Dublin. He started by playing the drums in a hardcore rock band, after that he went into his bedroom and started to teach himself how to be a singer and a songwriter! Now he is famous for the high notes he is able to hit and for his lyrics. In my opinion "Early In The Morning" is an unforgettable album! Each song has an amazing meaning. But this talented man came up with another masterpiece, the album "Post Tropical". "Cavalier" is the first track that gets released and judging by that I think that McMorrow hasn't lost his talent at all! Τhe song speaks for itself! Check out the lyrics and the line "i remember my first love" will haunt you down for sure! Enjoy :)



James Vincent McMorrow-Cavalier

speak until the dust
settles in the same specific place
light refused to go
drink it from a cast and iron plate
instead of cold milk
was offered unripe
instead of silence
considered craven

nothing made it seem
hidden where the aging soil was pure
pressed against the crease
mountains become fragrant at the source
how can you stand this
exotic angle
i read it somewhere
that they would lie still

i remember how cloth hung
flexing with the forest clung
half waist and high raised arms
kicking at the slightest form
i remember my first love
i remember my first love

unrelied i was called
missing teeth out of favour
nickel beach it was all
gathering by the sundial

i woke hard
i woke heavy
for the half way stop
five whole hours in
when i woke hard
i woke heavy with the live or parts

i remember how cloth hung
flexing with the forest clung
half waist and high raised arms
kicking at the slightest form
i remember my first love
i remember my first love

i remember my first love
