Night Noises

The house is old and big and cold,
it shrugs and settles down.
At night the steam heat bangs and spits,
the stairs creak in the dark..
I hear the swish of taffeta,
smell port wine and cigars..

The ghosts are in the parlor,
the burglar's on the stairs.
He tiptoes up and down all night,
deciding what to take.

And upstairs, in the guest rooms,
the squatters sneak about.
They're wonderfully clever,
Never to be seen.

Their whispered conversations
go on throughout the night,
the muffled sounds come trickling down,
I never catch the words,
the creaking of the floorboards
blocks everything they say.

By morning everybody
who filled my night with noise
has disappeared completely.

But they'll be back tonight.

I liked this a lot, great feeling in the vocal, very atmospheric story telling. I think that it works well with the solo guitar and the fiddle adds real pathos and depth. This is a very distinctive genre and tends to polarise peoples reactions, but hey, that's what we do!! Thanks, enjoyed this!

I like the lead vocals and the sound of the guitar and drums, very good sound effects as well.

Intriguing lyric and sound effects. Initially was really not sure; it got a little better as it went on.

Great vocal with a nice sense of humour and some great work going on behind.......very enjoyable......
