about

*Bandcamp Exclusive!* I travel all over Western Canada during the summer event season, and this year, music was my focus. All of these 20 tracks were recorded between the Spring and the Fall Equinox in 2013. They are not professional recordings. There's a lot of ambient background noise of the various festivals I attended and all my mistakes are included. So why do you want to buy this album?

1. There's 20 tracks, all at the price of a normal-length album.
2. They capture the spirit and magic of the events I attended. If you were there, or wish you were, it's a good way to carry that spirit with you.
3. Often things have more passion live than they do when recorded more professionally.
4. You will get unique tracks from my various live performances that are not available anywhere else, and never will be.
5. You will get unique, live versions of some of these tracks that highlight the talents of friends and guest performers. You won't find them on another album either.

Sometimes, I had to choose between two, three, or even four different live versions of the same song. I selected them based on the number of mistakes I made and how noticeable they were; how distracting the background noise was; whether I felt it best highlighted the song overall. whether you could hear the vocals; and whether it was more or less enjoyable than one or another version to listen to; and how interesting the performance was.

Sometimes, you can't hear the vocals very well, or there is a quite noticeable mistake. That's because there simply was no other version of that particular track, and I wanted to offer as much variety as possible.

This album, for obvious reasons, is exclusive to Bandcamp and only available in digital format. I hope you enjoy this intimate glimpse into my life over the summer of 2013.

Blessed be,
Sable

Total length: 1 hour, 38 minutes.

Track Name: The Pendragon's Sword
On the day of the dead, when the year too dies,
Must the youngest open the oldest hills
Through the door of the birds, where the breeze breaks.
There fire shall fly from the raven boy,
And the silver eyes that see the wind,
And the Light shall have the harp of gold.

By the pleasant lake the Sleepers lie,
On Cadfan’s Way where the kestrels call;
Through grim from the Grey King shadows fall,
Yet singing the golden harp shall guide
To break their sleep and bid them ride

When light from the lost land shall return,
Six Sleepers shall ride, six Signs shall burn,
And where the midsummer tree grows tall
By Pendragon’s sword the Dark shall fall.

When the Dark comes rising, six shall turn it back;
Three from the circle, three from the track;
Wood, bronze, iron; water, fire, stone;
Five will return, and one go alone.

By the pleasant lake the Sleepers lie,
On Cadfan’s Way where the kestrels call;
Through grim from the Grey King shadows fall,
Yet singing the golden harp shall guide
To break their sleep and bid them ride

When light from the lost land shall return,
Six Sleepers shall ride, six Signs shall burn,
And where the midsummer tree grows tall
By Pendragon’s sword the Dark shall fall.

Iron for the birthday, bronze carried long;
Wood from the burning, stone out of song;
Fire in the candle-ring, water from the thaw;
Six Signs the circle, and the grail gone before.

By the pleasant lake the Sleepers lie,
On Cadfan’s Way where the kestrels call;
Through grim from the Grey King shadows fall,
Yet singing the golden harp shall guide
To break their sleep and bid them ride

When light from the lost land shall return,
Six Sleepers shall ride, six Signs shall burn,
And where the midsummer tree grows tall
By Pendragon’s sword the Dark shall fall.

Fire on the mountain shall find the harp of gold,
Played to wake the Sleepers, oldest of the old;
Power from the green witch lost beneath the sea;
All shall find the light at last, silver on the tree.

By the pleasant lake the Sleepers lie,
On Cadfan’s Way where the kestrels call;
Through grim from the Grey King shadows fall,
Yet singing the golden harp shall guide
To break their sleep and bid them ride

When light from the lost land shall return,
Six Sleepers shall ride, six Signs shall burn,
And where the midsummer tree grows tall
By Pendragon’s sword the Dark shall fall.

On Cadfan’s Way where the kestrels call;
Through grim from the Grey King shadows fall,
Yet singing the golden harp shall guide
To break their sleep and bid them ride

When light from the lost land shall return,
Six Sleepers shall ride, six Signs shall burn,
And where the midsummer tree grows tall
By Pendragon’s sword the Dark shall fall.
Track Name: Me and Bobby the Priest
Laggin' out in Ironforge
Waitin' for the tram
Feelin' nearly wore out as all sin

Bobby waved a griffin down
Just before the raid
Took us all the way into Stormwind

I pulled my sword out of a dirty, slimey murlock
And was killin' foes while Bobby healed us some
With my twin merc blades slappin' time and
Bobby castin' spells, we finally
Blasted every foe to Kingdom Come

Farmin's just another word for no quests left to do
Farmin' ain't worth nothin' for XP
Doin' quests was easy, Light, with Bobby's healin' spells
Doin' quest was good enough for me
Good enough for me and Bobby the Priest

From the small mines of the Elwyn
To the barren Blasted Lands
Bobby shared the safety of my sword

Standin' right beside me, Light
We would make our stand
In Warsong Gulch we even fought the Horde

Then somewhere near Stromgard, Light, I let her slip away
Searchin' for the guild I hope she'll find
But I'd give all my blue items for a single yesterday
With Bobby's party icon next to mine

Farmin's just another word for no quests left to do
Farmin' ain't worth nothin' for XP
Doin' quests was easy, Light, with Bobby's healin' spells
Doin' quest was good enough for me
Good enough for me and Bobby the Priest

Doin' quests was easy, Light, with Bobby's healin' spells
Doin' quest was good enough for me
Good enough for me and Bobby the Priest
Track Name: Sing a Dragon's Song
Long ago
We had hopes and dreams
Long ago
Things were what they seemed

The tears we cry
Reflect our endless pain
Long ago
Was sun instead of rain

Those times are long past
Sweet dreams are gone
Those times are long past
Sing a dragon’s song
Sing a dragon’s song

You and I
Are of two different worlds
Yet our lives
Are filled with dark perils

Share with me
The danger that I live
In a time
When love’s all we can give

Those times are long past
Sweet dreams are gone
Those times are long past
Sing a dragon’s song
Sing a dragon’s song

We’re so young
And yet we are so old
We have seen
Horrors yet untold

We both know
That death will guide our way
Yet we hope
That there’ll be light someday

Those times are long past
Sweet dreams are gone
Those times are long past
Sing a dragon’s song
Sing a dragon’s song
Sing a dragon’s song
Sing a dragon’s song
Track Name: Made in Heaven
You look so familiar; where’ve I seen your face before?
Someone stole our love away; all is fair in love and war
You’re the one I dream about – we’ve met in another life
Why can’t we be together?
Oh, love is a double-edged knife
Love is a double-edged knife

Long ago and far away
We met: we fell in love that day
I’ll wait ten years, I’ll wait eleven,
It’s a match that was made in heaven
A match that was made in heaven

Now I see your expression; now I see you realize
You know my face from somewhere, I can see it in your eyes, and you say,
“You’re the woman I dream about – we’ve met in another life
“I want to hold you forever,
“But love is a double-edged knife”
Love is a double-edged knife

Long ago and far away
We met: we fell in love that day
I’ll wait ten years, I’ll wait eleven,
It’s a match that was made in heaven
A match that was made in heaven

We’re just two young fools in love, and we’ve met somewhere before
Love can break all bondage – it could shatter the ocean floor
We’re the ones we’ve dreamed about – we’ve met in another life
And we’ll always be together
If love is a double-edged knife
Oh, love is a double-edged knife

Long ago and far away
We met: we fell in love that day
I’ll wait ten years, I’ll wait eleven,
It’s a match that was made in heaven
A match that was made in heaven
Track Name: Sable with Chad McLeary and Anari Houston - Lady Isabel and the Elf Knight
Lady Isabel sat at her window a-sewing
(Aye, as the gowans grow gay)
When she heard an elf-knight on his bright horn a'blowing
(On the first morning in May)

Oh, I wish I'd that horn that I hear blow so clearly
And yonder elf-knight for to love me so dearly

This maiden had scarcely the fatal words spoken
When in at her window the elf-knight has broken

"It is a strange matter, fair maiden," said he
"I canna blaw horn but you call out to me"

"But will you come down unto yon greenwoodside
Come tack a fair horse and together we'll ride"

So he leaped on a horse, and she on another
And they have gone down to the greenwood together

"Light down ye, light down ye, fair maiden," said he
"We are come to the place where ye are to die."

"Hae mercy, hae mercy, Sir Elf-Knight on me
'Til aince more my father and mother I see"

"Well, seven King's daughters here have I slain
And ye'll be the eighth will forever remain"

"Come sit down awhile, rest your head on my knee
That we may take rest here before that I die"

And she stroked his dark head and she whispered sae sweet
That the elf-knight was soon lulled fast, fast asleep

And she'd taen his own sword-belt & bound him around
And with his own dirk struck the fiend his death wound

"Well, if seven King's daughters were slain here by thee
Then lie here and keep them all good company!"
Track Name: Imbolc Invocation
Brighid, bringer of the light
Banish now the dark of night
Hold ye forth a candle's flame
That tells us spring has come again

Vesta, guard our hearth & home
Through the winter kept us warm
Keeper of the sacred flame
Through you, now warmth will come again

Idun, maiden of the spring
Your touch makes all of nature sing
Each youth and babe and bud and flower
Know well they renewal's power

Hathor, goddess of the cow
Bring forth the calves and bless the plow
The beasts of field and farm grow rife
When nourished from your milk of life

Demeter, she who brings the rain
Who ripens fruit and nurtures grain
Return to us from winter's dark
And bud and bloom and bless life's spark

Ushas, herald of the dawn
Release the gates of darkness-bawn
Bring the chariot of the sun
That grants life's light to everyone

Brighid, bringer of the light
Banish now the dark of night
Hold ye forth a candle's flame
That tells us spring has come again
Track Name: Savage Garden
Silently the darkness falls
The demon thirst within me calls –
Out I creep to stalk to night alone

Shadows wake; the evening’s tide
Sings its rhythm at the waterside
Time passes – once again I’m on my own

I am the watcher looking in;
Bringer of death, bearer of sin

Dancing with the devil in the pale moonlight
Intoxicating blood, my victim’s life
Come with me into the darkness; I’ll show you how

Primeval urge runs through my twisted soul
The blood desire devours me whole
Come into my arms, my love; it’s Mephistopheles’ night out

I am the watcher looking in;
Bringer of death, bearer of sin
I am the devil in the flesh
And I fear my evilness

There are a million ways to die; there are a thousand ways to bleed
And I have seen them all; I bear the demon seed
Please don’t come too close, my love,
Or I’ll kill you where you stand

Ma chere, my fangs are on your throat, and my love is in my heart
Your death fulfills my need, and it tears my soul apart
I pray to gods I don’t believe in, someone stay my hand . . .

I am the watcher looking in
Bringer of death, bearer of sin
I am a demon in disguise
And I wear an angel’s eyes

Deep within the Savage Garden, what’s morality?
There is no God to judge and the only Devil is me!
Reaching out to find the truth, and finding nothing there
Solitude and loneliness; a quest to fight dispair

There is a greater truth in beauty and in life
And how it all can end when the Reaper swings his scythe
Deep within the Savage Garden, what do you dream of?
For even the Devil can love

I am the watcher looking in
Bringer of death, bearer of sin
I am a hunter and a beast
And from this curse I seek release . . .

And now the night is cold,
And my dark tale is told
This confession note I write
By a pale candle’s light

With these sorrowed, sinful eyes
I will face the morning sky
Unless you join my in my quest
I cannot bear the loneliness

I an the watcher looking in
Bringer of death, bearer of sin
Ma chere, my love, I’ll say goodbye
Before I chase my last sunrise . . .
Track Name: The Green Fields of France
Well, how do you do, young Willy McBride?
Do you mind if I sit here down beside your graveside?
And rest for a while 'neath the warm summer sun
I've been walking all day, and I'm nearly done

I see by your gravestone you were only nineteen
When you joined the great fallen in 1916
I hope you died well
And I hope you died clean
Or Willy McBride, was is it slow and obscene?

Did they beat the drums slowly?
Did they play the fife lowly?
Did they sound the death march as they lowered you down?
Did the band play "The Last Post" and chorus?
Did the pipes play "The Flowers of the Forest?"

Did you leave a young wife or a sweetheart behind?
In some faithful heart is your memory enshrined?
Alhough you died back in 1916
In some faithful heart, are you forever nineteen?
Or are you a stranger without even a name
Enshrined now, forever behind a glass pane
In an old photograph torn, tattered, and stained
And faded to yellow in a brown leather frame?

Did they beat the drums slowly?
Did they play the fife lowly?
Did they sound the death march as they lowered you down?
Did the band play "The Last Post" and chorus?
Did the pipes play "The Flowers of the Forest?"

Well, the sun, it shines down on the green fields of France
There's a warm summer's breeze and the red poppies dance
The trenches are gone, tilled under the plow
There's no gas, no barbed wire, there's no guns firing now
But here in this graveyard it's still no man's land
Where the countless white crosses in mute witness stand
To man's blind indifference to his fellow man
And a whole generation that was butchered and damned!

Did they beat the drums slowly?
Did they play the fife lowly?
Did they sound the death march as they lowered you down?
Did the band play "The Last Post" and chorus?
Did the pipes play "The Flowers of the Forest?"

I can't help but wonder now, Willy McBride
If all those who lie here know why they have died?
Did you really believe when you answered the call?
Did you really believe that this war would end wars?
The sorrow, the suffering, the glory, the pain;
The killing, the dying; they were all done in vain;
For Willy McBride it all happened again!
And again, and again, and again, and again!

Did they beat the drums slowly?
Did they play the fife lowly?
Did they sound the death march as they lowered you down?
Did the band play "The Last Post" and chorus?
Did the pipes play "The Flowers of the Forest?"
Track Name: Sable and Angela Gallant - Wake the World
Mothers, watch and keep the day
While the lambs leap and play
List' the wind, the gentle breeze
Spring is here, a time of ease

Emerald green of elder year
Backdrop for the newborn spear
Brightly sing the birds on high
Wake the world as spring draws nigh

Sun grows strong and lights the earth
Brings the dawning of rebirth
Sing the song, dance the step
Well the seed the earth has kept

Emerald green of elder year
Backdrop for the newborn spear
Brightly sing the birds on high
Wake the world as spring draws nigh

Bring your love, and bring your wife
Celebrate the way of life
Sun and moon and star and sky
Laugh and sing as night draws nigh

Emerald green of elder year
Backdrop for the newborn spear
Brightly sing the birds on high
Wake the world as spring draws nigh
Track Name: Dragonflight
Fading sun
Shining on the world
What has been done
Can come unfurled

Can you spare just a little time?
Can you take my hand? Your love is mine

Dragonflight
Leave the world behind
Dragonflight
In each other we find love of a kind

Were we ever children?
Did we run and play?
Did we once know innocence?
Did we dream in the day?

We can reach back and find that child
We can reach ahead; be free and wild

Dragonflight
Leave the world behind
Dragonflight
In each other we find love of a kind

Our worlds will come together
(Our worlds will come together)
Will join as one
(Will join as one)
Can’t we do the same?
Remove the cloud from the sun, from the sun

If I had just one wish
I know what I would say
I wish that hand-in-hand
We could just fly away

Will you love me if I break my vow?
Will you love me if I’m lost somehow?

Dragonflight
Leave the world behind
Dragonflight
In each other we find love of a kind

Dragonflight
Leave the world behind
Dragonflight
In each other we find love of a kind
Love of a kind
Love of a kind
Love of a kind . . .
Track Name: The Curmudgeon Song
All around my hat
I will tie purple cabbages
And on those purple cabbages
I'll put wigs of kitten hair

And if anyone should ask me
The reason why I'm doing that
I'll say, "It's none of your damn business
What the hell I wear!"

All around my plate
I will pile lots of lobster tails
And on those lobster tails
I'll pile stacks of deli meat

And if anyone should ask me
The reason why I'm doing that
I'll say, "Its none of your damn business
What the hell I eat!

All around my life
I will gather a family
Of lovers and my lovers' lovers
Till we have enough

And if anyone should ask me
The reason why I'm doing that
I'll say, "It's none of your damn business
Who the hell I love!"

All around the world
There is lots of diversity
And all around this festival
Diversity as well

And if anyone should ask me
The reason why I'm singing this
I'll say, "Embrace diversity
Or go to bloody hell!"
Track Name: The Other Side of the Mirror
So this is how it feels when the world ends
Something dies and is born again
You think you know yourself, but do you?

Should I stay silent, or be condemned?
This is how it feels when the world ends
Can you fathom the darkness inside of you?

Take a look at your face
It will be replaced
This is the other side of the mirror

Shades of grey, nothing's carved in stone
Suffer in silence or be alone
Why can't I have my cake and eat it too?

Always different, always on the outside
And now I know the reason why
What would they all say if they only knew?

Take a look at your face
It will be replaced
This is the other side of the mirror

Will they abandon me? Will they take me in?
Society will punish me for my sin
But how can it be sin if I don't hurt anyone?

The fear imprisons me; I live in a cage
I've got to be brave, but I can't give in to rage
I watch the fabric of my world as it comes undone

Shadows of silence haunting me through the night
And yet, within my shell, my soul takes flight
And believe me, World, I really had no choice

The secret deep within asphyxiates me
I've got to let it out, I've got to be free
And someone, somewhere, has got to hear my voice!

Take a look at your face
It will be replaced
This is the other side of the mirror

Mother, father, I cannot be
Whatever it is that you want me to be
I wish that you could understand, I wish that you could say
"It's all right, sweetheart, we love you anyway"
But I know I can't expect what will never be
And all that I can hope is that you'll still care for me
So if this is farewell, I guess I'll say goodbye
And face the world with hope, and my battle cry
Someone's got to take the chance, and say it loud,
"I'm young, gay, and proud!"

CHORUS

So this is how it feels when the world ends
Something dies and is born again
You think you know yourself, but do you?

Well, I'm not silent, and I've been condemned
But maybe someday all this pain will end
Courage, patience, and faith will see us through

Take a look at your face
It will be replaced
This is the other side of the mirror

Take a look at your face
It will be replaced
This is the other side of the mirror
Track Name: Lullaby: An Apology
Lullaby, and good night
Lullaby, and good night
Lullaby, and good night
Lullaby, and good night

I remember how you sang
Lullabies in the night
I remember how you read to me
By the hall's soothing light

I was a child and I knew
I was safe in your arms
You would save me from the darkness
You would keep me from harm

If I only knew
There's only so much a mother can do

I remember how we fought
And the cruel things we said
I remember how I left home
Needing freedom or death

I was a child and I knew
I wasn't safe in your arms
I felt that you had somehow betrayed me
You couldn't keep me from harm

If I only knew
There's only so much a mother can do

2 a.m. the phone rings
And it's your voice on the line
You tell me there was an accident
And you were lucky this time

It's then I realized how much I love you
And how important you are
You haven't failed me, you gave me your strength
You are my guiding star

But if you only knew
There's only so much a daughter can do

Lullaby, and good night
Lullaby, and good night
Lullaby, and good night
Lullaby, and good night
Track Name: St. Patrick's Rune
At Tara in this fateful hour
I place all Heaven with its power;
The sun with its brightness,
The snow with its whiteness,
The fire with all the strength it hath,
The lightning with its rapid wrath,
The winds with their swiftness along their path,
The rocks with their steepness,
The sea with its deepness,
The earth with its starkness;
All of these I place,
By God's almighty grace,
Between myself and the powers of darkness.
Track Name: The Dark Lady
A fierce one-eyed man named Baron LaBonne
A meaner pirate had never been known
And he sailed on the Dark Lady
A ship strong and sound with a perilous crew
And high on the mast the skull and bones flew
Fleet and swift was the Dark Lady

And every night the Baron would drink a toast
He'd say, "Here's to our lovely lady host!
My one true love..."
"Hear, hear!" the crew replied
And the Dark Lady sighed.

A rich Spanish galleon was spotted one night
The Dark Lady's crew prepared for the fight
Clash of swords...No Spaniard survived it
Except for the maiden with dark eyes so bold
Found in the hull with the jewels and the gold
LaBonne laughed and took her for ransom

And every night the Baron would drink a toast
He'd say, "Here's to my lovely lady host!
My one true love..."
"Hear, hear!" the crew replied
And the Dark Lady sighed.

The girl Carlotta was a beauty quite rare
With each passing night LaBonne couldn't bear
His empty bed. He brought her to it.
The Baron soon found he felt more than desire
His love for her grew and his soul filled with fire
He proclaimed that they would marry.

That night the Baron drank with jubilee
And said, "Here's to my lovely bride to be!
My one true love..."
"Hear, hear!" the crew replied
And the Dark Lady cried.

The following night a storm brewed at sea
The Dark Lady saw her chance to be free
Of her rival, the beauty Carlotta
The ship steered herself to the heart of the gale
Where a wave swept the maiden out over the rail
Sweet revenge on an unfaithful lover.

That night the Lady drank a toast
And said, "Here's to your lovely lady host!
Your one true love..."
No voices replied
And the Dark Lady smiled.

And now any night when a storm fills the sky
They say that a ghost ship sails in it's eye
Fleet and swift is the Dark Lady
A ship strong and sound with a perilous crew
And high on the mast the skull and bones flew
While the captain gazes out to sea.

And every night the Baron must drink a toast
He says, "Here's to our lovely lady host!
My one true love..."
"Hear, hear," the ghost crew replies
And the Dark Lady smiles.
Track Name: Sable with Chad McLeary - The Queen's Dirk
As we were sailing along the star sea,
We hadn't been gone months, not two nor three,
When we saw ten sail, ten sail of orc
All men-o'-war full as big as we.

"Haul down your colours, you Elvish dogs!
Haul down your colours, do not refuse.
Haul down your colours, you Elvish dogs
Or your precious lives you will lose!"

Our captain being a valiant elf,
And a well bespoken an elf was he:
"Let it never be said we died like dogs,
For we shall fight most valiantly!"

"Go up aloft, you cabin boys,
And mount the mainmast, a topsail high,
For to spread the news to King Zaor's fleet
That we'll run the risk or else we'll die!"

Well, the fight began about six in the morn,
And unto the orbit of the sun.
And at the rise of the next dawn,
Where we saw ten ships we couldn't see but one.

For three we sank and three we burned,
And three we caused to run away,
And one we towed to Dragon Harbour,
For to let them know we'd won the day.

If anyone then should inquire
As to our gallant captain's name,
Well, Captain Yvoleth was our commander
And the Queen's Dirk was our ship by name.
Track Name: Catch a Falling Star
Dreams are clouds of mist,
A Unicorn I ride,
But a wisp of cloudy Darkness
Creeps from the other side

Open the doors of time,
Remember memories
Of family and friends,
But the eye of Darkness sees

Catch a falling star tonight,
The Darkness screams outside –
Just keep your dreams a’dancing;
Your soul she’ll never find
I believe in unicorns,
Interplanetary flight;
But one thing I don’t believe in –
Letting go your life –
Catch a falling star

A shadow passes over
My star in the sky;
An evil falcon watches
With a knowing eye

The tunnel is a long one,
But Light is at the end,
I know because my friend’s been there,
There and back again

Catch a falling star tonight,
The Darkness screams outside –
Just keep your dreams a’dancing;
Your soul she’ll never find
I believe in unicorns,
Interplanetary flight;
But one thing I don’t believe in –
Letting go your life –
Catch a falling star

Dreams are clouds of mist,
A Unicorn I ride,
The river’s very wide,
But the Sun’s on the other side

Catch a falling star tonight,
The Darkness screams outside –
Just keep your dreams a’dancing;
Your soul she’ll never find
I believe in unicorns,
Interplanetary flight;
But one thing I don’t believe in –
Letting go your life –
Catch a falling star

I believe in unicorns,
Interplanetary flight;
But one thing I don’t believe in –
Letting go your life –
Catch a falling star
Catch a falling star
Catch a falling star
Catch a falling star . . .
