    "Portraying Moments in fairy-tale brush strokes, Allysen Callery's Mumblin' Sue is another folk gem. Two songs stand out in complexity and brilliance. “Lily of the Valley” strolls through landscapes with poisonous secrets, conjures up “White Coral Bells” and ends, intriguingly: “I am the daughter of Mother’s Nature’s Son”. Carried by a melodically flowing guitar progression and remarkably varied vocals, “Spare Parts” tells its tale with strong, evocative lines such as “I’ll build a man with a gold heart / out of the spare parts / you don’t want anymore” and “it’s the ones with the broken hearts / that cry tears of joy”. The song flickers like a lighthouse somewhere between magical Oz and Frankenstein’s miserable abode. Which, in a way, is true for the entire album. Marvellous."- Folk Radio UK

1. In your Hollow Do you collect the sunlight in your hollow lonely Does it leave a space for the rain to fill the echo of your absence haunts the air I breathe I am taking shallow steps I would not disturb the silence That pools around my feet and ankles If I am very still & quiet I can almost remember you

2.I Had a Lover I thought was my Own I had a lover I though was my own I 'd slip from my bed while my husband was sleeping Once I drove to his house but the door was locked I could see he had the candles all lit I had a lover I thought was my own Once he told me You should pay me I keep the older women of this town happy Fat & merry I had a lover I thought was my own He took me in his arms upon the chair When I'd told him we were done He held me close & stroked my hair

Spare Parts 02:23
3. Spare Parts & Whatever you got lyin' around in the back of a closet or on the ground under your bed I'd like to take it home with me I'll build a man with a gold heart out of the spare parts you don't want anymore I'm pretty good with my hands & I need a man who'll whirr & purr stir at my command & whatever you got lyin' around you won't miss too much I need the touch of a clean machine made up of spare parts it's the ones with the broken hearts that cry tears of joy Cry tears of joy over the simplest things & whatever you got lyin' around in the back of a closet or on the ground under your bed I'd like to take it home with me I'll build a man with a gold heart out of those spare parts

4.Lily of the Valley He gave me a crown of gold silver was all that I'd wanted the silver of moonlight on the water a lover who'd look into my eyes & Everybody said I was foolish & everybody knew they knew better than be that as it may I only feel sorry for the Lily of the Valley that grew beside the shade of the Dogwood tree because they always remind me now they always remind me be that as it may "white coral bells ring" came up by surprise at the new house this Spring. Someone had to be the hard headed hammer well, let me play the part that pries the nails out when all of the walls built between us are gone we'll lie in the grass in the warm sun Baby, do you want to go? Back where I come from? I am the daughter of Mother's Nature's Son.

Highway Gone 01:34

My Carolina 02:29
6. My Carolina Meet me Midnight Soft step candlelight and I'll slip inside I'm on fire driving down your highway Bring me sweet tea, cigarettes let me forget them on the nightstand by your bed Oh my Carolina, what you've done to me Oh my Carolina, want done to me forever I am the ramblin' rose & I'll climb the highest fence to thrust my faith, my love, myself and my world bloom outside your window No consequence to me if you're making me happy no consequence to me if you're bring me misery Oh my Carolina,see what you've done what you've done to me

In the Ring 03:28
8. In the Ring Went to bed angry last night my last words a curse you just shrug it off make it worse. Slowly & sweetly you kissed me on the elbow but I just turned away to make you pay, make you pay Don't worry baby this old life won't teach me Don't worry baby sometimes you just can't reach me Anyway, I been round & round in the ring Stupid & punch drunk won’t you let me rest my bloody cheek against yours sometimes Any good boxer knows It’s not the punches you throw But just how much how much can you take? You won’t break me baby I'll fight away & never change Don't worry baby Anyway I’ve been round & round In the ring I've grown small & mean You sweet thing You poor sweet thing Anyway, I been round & round in the ring Oh, won’t you let me rest

10. Your Skin Does Not Lie White eyelashes On your eyes Your skin does not lie I like a stroll in the morning I like a stroll in the morning Sleepy streets by the sea Your skin does not lie I see the lovers are entwined Winter sky in the morning Birds fly from their mouths Birds that fill the sky Winter blue Winter blue Winter white eyelashes on your eyes Winter blue were your eyes Stood so close when I spoke to you Your skin does not lie

about
