And all those lonely nights down by the river
Brought me bread and water, water in
But though i tried so hard my little darling
I couldn’t keep the night from comin’ in

And all those lonely nights down by the river
Brought me bread and water, kith and kin
But in the quiet hour when i am sleepin’
I couldn’t keep the night from comin’ in

A commissioned work of Joanna Newsom’s “Sawdust and Diamonds”. Each element of the piece references symbols that are used in the song (the white dove, the sparrow, thistles, horns, strings and of course, that damnable bell!).

I absolutely loved working on this piece and am really happy with how it turned out. If you’re interested in commissioned work please email me: hiseetaroy@gmail.com
