Top folk tracks of 2014

Listen to formidable *** ”The Call” by Ruu Campbell: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhOlpjHy014

I heard you in the wind with my face toward the sun,
sparrows danced above my head and dived on their way home.
Be careful what you wish for,
'cos one day she will come,
like the day when I saw you and my past was gone.
Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh…
Down by the water, all the lights surround me.
I thank you for the pleasure, all the treasures I have seen.
She whispered in my ear,
"You won’t always know I’m there"
I said all I can I give you and all I am I share.
Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh…
Hear my call -
I want it all.
Roses in the wind, bridge from falling in,
may not always know you’re there,
but all I am I share, with you.
Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh…
