Lyrics: She was binding the wounds of her enemies when they came
They battered the door with their rifle-butts, crashed into it

They haled her before the judges where they sat
With question and menace the judges assailed her,
“Yes, I have broken your law,” she said.

“I have tended the hurt and hidden the hunted, have done
As a sister does to a brother,
“Deal as you will with me. To live in the life I vowed.”

In the terrible hour of the dawn, when the veins are cold,
They led her forth to the wall.
She said Love requires of me all.

She faced them gentle and bold
She faced them gentle and bold
She faced them gentle and bold
She faced them gentle and bold


She faced them gentle and bold
She faced them gentle and bold
She faced them gentle and bold
She faced them gentle and bold

'Gorgeous vocals that come intimately to the forefront; the harmonies complimenting each other beautifully whilst each voice individually grabs and ravels you in, forcing you to listen intently' - For Folk's Sake (extract from EP review)
