about

recorded while I had a wee cold.. The RPM challenge is writing challenge where one has to write and record an entire album in the month of February. Due to my trip to Glasgow and such, I began my challenge on the 15th of Feb. I recorded the entire album at my apartment on the 28th of February. Not too bad for being under the wire
Enjoy!

Track Name: Hjarta ok Eldur/The Orkney Snow
Hjarta ok Eldur / The Orkney Snow
Fae Wiedenhoeft 24 Feb 2014

Oh the wars hold on and the stars are dressed in red
And the winds of winter do blow and blanket our dead
Oh the gold, gold glow of our fire holds our souls
As we wait in the snow to find the dragon’s smoldering breath

We have traveled far from the shores I call my home
To find the creature who has turned my heart to stone
Oh the green, green glow of my true love’s eyes are closed
And I will fight like hell to slay the cruel and deadly Orm

Chorus
Hjarta ok Eldur
Here my ancestors roar
And though the shadows hide you now
By my sword you will fall

Tune - The Orkney Snow

And this night our swords were raised in battle again
And we drank and sang to our fathers, heroes, and kings
Oh the blue, blue walls of Valhalla’s halls grow near
And my soul wont rest until the cruel dragon is slain

Chorus
Track Name: Diamond Eyes
Diamond Eyes
Fae Wiedenhoeft June 2013 – 23 February 2014

I greet the water. I feel its kisses.
The cool embrace, the pull of its charms
It’s courted my heart, my secret lover
Lapping at my soul with its wild mouth

Chorus
With diamond eyed waves
Sending jeweled hellos
On light salty breezes
I’m drunk on your smile as I
Tiptoe through the veil

And it would woo and it would wane
Like the many loves who called my name
And it would rage, take my breath away
Only to softly slip back and say ‘so sorry’

Chorus

I came for wisdom. I came for freedom
I was only trying to find a dream.
And it would play, wash my sins away
Push me over and under and in-between…

Chorus

The Wild
Fae Wiedenhoeft 2 January 2014 - 21 February 2014

Wake and hear the wind blowing strong
Trees are dancing and leaves flying round
The rain’s tapping toes on the ground
It’s the time of the wild

Run to the sea and taste the salt air
Stones are turning; your hair’s flying everywhere
The eagle soars without care
It’s the time of the wild

Drum your feet throw your hands to the sky
Shout your song this is no lullaby
You have one life don’t let it die
In the time of the wild

Chorus
Brave, Brave, Brave child
Put your ear to the earth and hear the song singing wild
Run Run You’re free
Laugh and smile at the world; join its sweet harmony
Drum and dance in the dream
It’s the time of the wild

Bridge
Beidh biseach ort go luath ( Sit here for a moment) x3
La brea ata ann ( It's a lovely day)
Ta an t-adhar gorm (The sky is blue) x3
La brea ata ann (It's a lovely day)

Wake and hear the wind blowing strong
Trees are dancing and leaves flying round
The rain’s tapping toes on the ground
It’s the time of the wild

Run to the sea and taste the salt air
Stones are turning; your hair’s flying everywhere
The eagle soars without care
It’s the time of the wild

Chorus
