ALINE HAPP schickt ihr neuestes Video zu einer ihrer zahlreichen Coverversionen, die sie auch auf ihrem Soloalbum “Branching Out” veröffentlicht hat. Das jetzt hochgeladene Video ist ihre Neuinterpretation des Uriah Heep Klassikers `Lady in Black`, der selbstverständlich, wie bei ALINE HAPP üblich, in ein gänzlich neues Celtic folkartiges Soundkleid gesteckt wurde. Erhältlich ist der Track digital und auf ihrer Homepage.





She came to me one morning

One lonely sunday morning

Her long hair flowing in the midwinter wind

I know not how she found me

For in darkness I was walking

And destruction lay around me

From a fight I could not win


Ahh ahh ahh, ahh ahh ahh ahh


She asked me name my foe then

I said the need within some men

To fight and kill their brothers

Without thought of love or God

And I begged her give me horses

To trample down my enemies

So eager was my passion

To devour this waste of life


Ahh ahh ahh, ahh ahh ahh ahh


But she wouldn’t think of battle that

Reduces men to animals

So easy to begin

And yet impossible to end

For she the mother of all men

Did counselled me so wisely then

I feared to walk alone again

And asked if she would stay


Oh lady lend your hand I cried

And let me rest here at your side

Have faith and trust in me she said

And filled my heart with life


There’s no strength in numbers

Have no such misconception

But when you need me

Be assured I won’t be far away


Ahh ahh ahh, ahh ahh ahh ahh


Thus having spoke she turned away

And though I found no words to say

I stood and watched until I saw

Her black cloak disappear

My labour is no easier

But now I know I’m not alone

I find new heart

Each time I think upon that windy day


And if one day she comes to you

Drink deeply from her words so wise

Take courage from her as your prize

And say hello for me


Ahh ahh ahh, ahh ahh ahh ahh
