My shipment hasn't arrived yet, so this is all based on ear, though I think lyrics have been on her Instagram, etc. So probably there are more official places than this and I probably make some mistakes which I'll fix if pointed out. (I wish very much I could edit posts but that's not allowed on this forum so I'll have to repost them all together later.)

I swore I posted The Wounds We Bled on here before but I don't see them?? I'll try to get them off another computer tomorrow where I did them. I guess I didn't post them cause they were already out there?

Anyway, here are the two songs I liked the most and so was most excited about listening to repeatedly enough to do the lyrics.



Rewild Me
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
I'm over the hate and I'm over the gate and I'm gone.
Like a fox in the meadow, no one on my trail, I'm gone.

(Bridge 1)
Rewild my heart, let me be
The sum of my parts, me.

(Verse 2)
Cause I'm over the blame and I'm over the shame and I'm gone.
Like a fox in the meadow, bright flash in the shadows, I'm gone.

(Bridge 2)
Rewild my heart, let me find
My animal part, the divine.

(Break)
And I wanna feel wonder,
And I wanna lie under the big trees,
And I wanna sink into the blue sea;
Rewild me.

(Guitar Solo)

(Verse 3)
In the sweetness of nature, I'm free from the failures, I'm gone.
No slave to the longing, I'm one with belonging, I'm gone.
Gone.
Gone.


Some Things Just Come Undone
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
I took my beautiful son down to the ocean,
Some things just come undone, I said,
It's all swirling around in me, like I'm an ocean,
Some things just come undone, I said.

I took my beautiful boy down to the ocean,
Sometimes a change will come, I said,
His cheeks all rosy red and full of elation,
Sometimes a change will come, I said.

(Bridge)
I'm gonna make everythign okay.
(guitar riff)

(Verse 2)
I took my beautiful child down to the ocean,
Look up, up at the sky, I said,
His eyes reflecting light, all full of emotion,
I'm never gonna let you down, I said.

(Bridge)

(Break)
My child, my beautiful son, I said,
Some things just come undone, I said,
Look up, up at the sky, I said,
Two homes better than one, I said.

My boy, my beautiful son, I said,
My boy, my beautiful son,
Should I cry or hold my emotion?
Should I cry or hold my emotion?
Which one is his salvation?
Oh -

Oh, my mother inside,
Oh, my mother inside,
Oh, my mother inside,

I'm gonna make everything okay.

(Outro)
Some things just come undone, I said,
Two homes are better than one, I said,
Oh, my beautiful son, I said,
Some things just come undone, yeah.

Two homes are better than one, I said,
Oh, my beautiful son,
Some things just come undone,
Some things just come undone, I said.

Some things just come undone, yeah,
Oh, my beautiful son,
Some things just come undone,
Some things just come undone,
Some things just come undone.

Thanks. These are my favourite ones too.

If you want to go faster, you can start with what you find on azlyrics.

I'll have the times to tab it all soon.

Thanks for the corrections, Bernd!

I'll try to incorporate those at the end.

Here's another song I really like from the album. Interesting how she takes an incident from their childhood and compares it metaphorically to what she's going through today. Really love the sound of this song.

See Yourself
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Sister, all the ways I adore you,
Why can't you see yourself?
Why can't you see yourself?

Sister, shine a light on your grace and beauty;
Why can't you see yourself?
Why can't you?

You were just a child holding tight,
In those ocean swells,
Why can't you see yourself?

(Bridge)
You think everybody else has got it made,
But can't you see we're all in pieces?

(Chorus A)
Cause when you're broken, then you're open,
And when you're open, then you're living,
And when you're living, you are light,
And it's alright, and it's alright,
And it's alright.

(Verse 2)
You got knocked down, spinning out,
Salt got
In your mouth.

Stung your eyes, I know it still matters,
Still hurting,
Feel it inside.

(Bridge)

(Chorus B)
Cause when you're broken, you are open,
And when you're open, then you're living,
And when you're living, you are a light,
And it's alright, and it's alright.

(Chorus C)
Cause when you're broken, you are open,
And when you're open, then you're living,
And when you're living, you are a light (light),
And it's alright, it's alright, it's alright.

(Chorus D)
Cause when you're broken, you are open,
And when you're open (when you're open), then you're living (then you're living),
When you're light (light), it's alright, it's alright
It's alright, it's alright. (ah)

(Chorus E/Outro)
Cause when you're broken, you are light,
And it's alright, it's alright,
It's alright, it's alright,
It's alright.

My Pearl album won't arrive soon.

I am listening to the songs on Amazon music.
If I manage to download them, I'll bring them on holidays to tab them there next week.

That wasn't advertised, was it? I don't remember there being much info on the lyrics book. Are there comments about the songs too? The description made it sound like just lyrics, didn't it?

I think there were two books advertised in the campain in the beginning, the Lyrics Book and Making the Album. They were merged into one book.

Although I haven't read it yet, it is very nice. It has a hard cover and contains the lyrics, the chords, photos, explanation "behind the songs", notes regadings the musicians and the artwork.

It seems to be sold out meanwhile

Most sites are photos and lyrics.
I think there are only seven pages with text apart from the lyrics.

Good to know. Makes sense it would be a lot of photos.

In chorus B, I'm not quite sure if it's "you are light" or "you are a light" as it seems to be in between the other pronunciations where it's clearly one or the other, but I'm not sure it matters a ton. Heather is clearly playing with both in the song.

"you are light" is in the CD booklet and the lyrics book. I'm not sure which recording you are listening to to transcribe the lyrics.

Lyrics book doesn't always have all the varitions as sung on the album, which is what I'm transcribing. Refer to Some Things Just Come Undone as well. I think the more rock Heather gets, the more this is true.

In Chorus C, it's very clearly "You are a light" and this is very clearly intentional.

Nothing wrong with the lyrics book as containing the basic lyrics for the song, but it won't cover all the performance variations as seen on the album. I used to get frustrated by this back in the old days but now I just see it as serving a different purpose.

I totally understand, just wanted to tell what the official lyrics are.
I so much like our lyrics section here as it tells us at least close what Heather was really singing.
So please keep up doing.
As you haven't yet got the CD, I just would like to know which recording you are listening to so that i can agree or not. Well I'm not a native speaker so and might hear it in a different anyway.

oh no, it is really on youtube, somehow for free? Seems like Youtube is doing a bad job then. I hate the politics of google anyway. It's a monemaking machine who sell yor personal data. Young people do not take care anyway to sell.
Anyway Youtube doesn't respect really the rights of an artist. I try to not use google related services.

I already bought the album along with other stuff in the pledge campaign or whatever it was called. I'm not really worried. But yes, almost all music is on YT.

I'm guessing the Break (huya huya) is a Buddhist chant of some sort?

Anyway, yeah, still shamelessly going through these in order of how much I enjoy listening to them. I'm sure I'll get the rest. I do really like your guitar, Vincent, I'll get to the songs about you one of these days.

Love the descending minor chords over "Over the fields you go" - there is so much sorrow there. This feels so much like an old Heather song in the sound, especially the guitar, even though Vincent is new to her music. Hmm.



Over The Fields
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Heard you slipped into the light we cannot see,
Behind the veil and the songs,
Reaching out to those who came to you in dreams -

(Chorus A)
Over the fields you go,
Over the wreckage in slow motion,
Everything that you used to know,
All the weight, all the weight you can let go.

(Verse 2)
And you remember making angels in the snow,
A flash of who you could have been.
Begin the journey you that started long ago -

(Chorus A)

(Break)
Huya huya
Huya huya
Huya huya
Huya huya

Huya huya
Huya huya
Huya huya
Huya huya

(Verse 2)
And all apologies and all the damage done,
Somehow you never found the key;
It's coming to you now as you head into the sun -

(Chorus B/Outro)
Over the fields you go,
Over the wreckage in slow motion,
Over the fields you go,
Over the wreckage in slow motion,
Everything that you used to know,
All the weight, all the weight that you can let go,
All the weight, all the weight you can let go,
All the weight, all the weight,
All the weight.

For Bernd.

Lyrics in the booklet are basically 100% accurate. Just leaves out the outro and the Break (which has no actual words anyway).

And okay, it's a pretty song. I like the chorus.

Vincent
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Vincent, yours is the first name I've ever sung;
Sometimes life is a movie and it's only just begun.

Waves are crashing through my veins, I'm overcome;
Sometimes, life is a movie and it's just begun.

(Chrous)
And the stars will make us wild,
And the dark will make us hesitate, but that's our fate,
The stars will make us wild;
It's not too late for us.

(Verse 2)
I want to laugh, sing Autumn Leaves, and whistle grass with you;
I want to lie under any kind of sky.

(Chorus)

(Break)
Ooo ooo, ooo-oo-ooo
Ooo ooo, ooo-oo-oo

(Verse 3)
Les vagues viennent s'écraser dans mes veines et je m'enivre,
Vincent, je veux only to be with you.

(Chorus)

(Outro)
The stars will make us wild;
It's not too late for us.

Ooo ooo-oo-ooo

It's not too late for us.

I would add a footnote with the translation.
Autumn Leaves is a song?
When does she mean with that?

She capitalizes it so I assumed so?

But I probably should have looked it up.

I wrote a poem called Autumn Leaves when I was 16 or 17. She's probably not referring to that.

Yes, Autumn Leaves seems to be some jazz song.

Nope. I'm in the same boat. Still hasn't even gotten to the U.S. yet.

Thankfully I have friends who help me out with stuff like the lyrics booklet.

The bio on Vincent's website says he's born in France. The French lines make sense.
