This EP contains a song written for my Mother, the beautiful and enigmatic Gabrielle Hillary, because I didn't know what to get her this year! The song 'Mother' is written by me, the song 'Scarlet Ribbons' is one of her favourite songs so I just wanted to include that.

Track Name: Mother
When you know a mother's love
your heart knows how to fly, high above
A heart touching heart
from the very start
all souls sing, for mothers

all souls sing
for mothers

How I love her eyes
and the comfort she provides
there's nothing quite like
a mother's touch

Thank you for your sanctuary
your soul and how it speaks to me
how i love
you mother

all souls sing
for mothers

You remind me of Sunday afternoons
of light on leaves
of laughter true
I find peace in your company
a best friend perfectly made for me

When i look at your life's tapestry
the colours there inspire me
you're the strongest and softest parts of me
my mother

all souls sing
for mothers
Track Name: Scarlet Ribbons
"Scarlet Ribbons"

I peeked in to say goodnight
And then I heard my child in prayer
Send for me some scarlet ribbons
Scarlet ribbons for my hair.

All the stores were closed and shuttered
All the streets were dark and bare
In our town no scarlet ribbons
No scarlet ribbons for her hair.

Through the night my heart was aching
Just before the dawn was breaking.

I peeked in and on her bed
In gay profusion laying there

Scarlet ribbons, scarlet ribbons
scarlet ribbons for her hair.

If I live to be a hundred
I will never know from where
Came those lovely scarlet ribbons
Scarlet ribbons for her hair...
