Albatross (2018) - Single

by The Magic Lantern



The third single from my third album 'To The Islands.


Skims over the waves
Alone with the rain and the wind
That she commands

Sailors say
Don’t be afraid
On fate’s fragile wing
We’ll ride out this storm

Storm, storm

Blown off course
Foam flecked and cold
Home is an old children’s song
We sing ourselves to sleep

Lighthouse knows
All journey’s end
With hope’s hand reaching out
To still each beating breast


released August 31, 2018
Written by Jamie Doe

Performed by Jamie Doe, Zac Gvirtzman,
Chris Hyson, Dave Hamblett and Fred Thomas

Produced by Fred Thomas
Recorded and mixed by Alex Killpartrick
