MANGOES

Words & Music: Caroline Lavelle

And maybe this time I should And maybe this time it would and maybe I’ll forget what history persuades it wants of me You taste of mangoes in the darkness spinning time in chaos the flooding hours like a minute’s essence so pure and sweet My voice is dark and broken so much I leave unspoken There must be a right time to give in; In losing, how might I win how might I win.


The piano is played by Michael Nyman, and there are a lot of notes! This song could have been sub-titled ‘the revenge of the cello player’, as I have played so many of his notes! Ben and I recorded it in Michael’s house in London on his gorgeous piano that has a sound all of its own.
