White Gull Rising

Ingrid Ferris
Joe Illing, Ingrid Ferris, Giles Arendt


Like a white gull rising in a shaft of sun,

Wings out-stretched, filled with the wind,

A solitary traveler in an oil-black sky,

I shall return to you, I shall return to you…

Ahhh ahhh ahhh ( other voices.)


Like a Coho salmon from uncharted seas,

Jumping, twisting, with silver back arched,

An acrobat dancing in rainbow spray,

I shall return to you ( dire) I shall return.

Ahh ahh + dire


Like a prodigal son, turning from thieves,

From crack houses, jails, from unholy gutters

Littered with glass and human debris

I  shall return to You, I shall return.

Ahh ahh…..


Your forgivness shall cure me forever….

Dire…ohhh ohhh

Your love shall resurrect me, when like a white gull rising,

I shall return to you,( dire on going.)

 I shall return to you

Ohh ohhh…..

You shall clean me and comfort me,

And bathe me in spring water

And you shall dress me in white linen

And feed me a feast of Thanksgiving.

You shall clean me and comfort me

And bathe me in warm water ( dire)

And bathe me and clean me

In warm water

And comfort me and bathe me

In warm water,

And comfort me and bathe me

In warm water.

Praise for Ingrid's New Music

From DJ Paddy Lane @ Cry 104 FM co.Cork, Ireland:

"Ingrid's voice penetrates my inner being.

It would be a crime to label this music, it is absolutely unique. But the words that come to mind are:

Progressive, organic, soulful, transcendental, never heard before, new ground music, folktronic!"
