New Zealand is a long way away, but Whangarei rasied Erin Cole-Baker isn't. Music loured Cole-Baker to Oregon and keeps her traveling. Her songs are simple wonders, a blend of acoustic Americana and indie-folk style of The Weepies and Brandi Carlile, a bit of sunshine through the clouds.

Lyrics

Start all over again

Written By: Erin Cole-Baker

You’ve picked all the locks and now all the doors have opened up
And “oh what a nice surprise” you say, am I loosing my mind?

We gather our thoughts
And sew them all in
We tie them all up and start over again
Ohoh ohoh oh ohohoho

When I was a child I dreamed of singing lullabys
And time seemed so long the orchard stretching under me

We gather our thoughts
And sew them all in
We tie them all up and start over again
Ohoh... ohoh ... oh... ohohoho
ahaha... aha............ ahahaha

We opened up books the stories weaving into me
Reading by candle light and calling all memories

We gather our thoughts
And sew them all in
We tie them all up and start over again
Ohoh... ohoh... oh... ohohoho
ahaha... aha............ ahahaha
ooooooh......oohooooh....ooooh...oohooohoooooo

Morning Spell

Written By: Erin Cole-Baker

It’s breakfast time so open up those eyes
Decorate underneath moistened skies
Come in morning, come in morning spell

Pull down on the chord, And welcome in the rays
Mind into motion
Just don’t let the days pass you by

Come in darlin come and sit with me
Tell me everything and we’ll let it be
Come in morning, come in morning spell

Pull down on the chord, And welcome in the rays
Mind into motion
Just don’t let the days pass you by

Do do do do do-do
Do do do do doo, Do do do do doo

Pull down on the chord, And welcome in the rays
Mind into motion
Just don’t let the days pass you by
