One Of Those.

I don’t know if this song will have the same effect on you, but, for me, this is one of those songs.

You know – those songs.

The ones that crawl under your skin. The ones that play in your head again and again and again. The ones that leave you caught in your chest, wondering what’s just happened.

Colin MacIntyre was better known as part of a band called “The Mull Historical Society”, who were responsible for wonderfully twee, at times a little more unsettling, tunes, from 2001 to 2005. While there were a number of band members, the group were described as a one-man, with MacIntyre that one man.

Now, Colin is back, under his own name, with “The Water”. And from that album, I give you the song “The Water” – somewhere between a Scottish folk dirge, and a…uhm…ehm…Okay, it’s mainly a Scottish folk dirge. And bloody haunting.

I bet you’ll be back to this one more than once.

I married a girl, I married the one that I want. I married a girl, I married the one that you were.

If you could come out of the water, the water. If you could come out of the water, the water, the water, the water, with me.

I married a boy, I married the boy that I want. I tried to belong, I held on with both feet at ground.

If you could come out of the water, the water. If you could come out of the water, the water.

If I could come into the water, the water, the water, the water, with you.

And all that I want is you. And all that I need is you. And all that I want is to know that it’s you.

I married a girl, a time for me heart to be stilled. I’ll slide in the storm, till I float to where I belong

If you could come out of the water, the water. If you could come out of the water, the water.

If I could come into the water, the water, the water, the water, with you. With you

And all that I want is you. And all that I need is you. And all that I want is to know that it’s true.

I married a girl, I married the one that I want.
