about

‘CONDOR’, featuring Cornerstone Brass Band, was written by Nat about fellow songwriter Connie Converse, who deliberately disappeared in 1974 and whose fate is still a mystery.

“I wanted to give Connie the freedom she couldn’t seem to find in her lifetime,” said Nat. “I was thinking about the ways her journey may have ended, but it’s also about taking comfort in knowing that we are more than ourselves.”

lyrics

So, the fire dies and the rest of the world sees by candlelight
You'll be gone tonight, all the colours of you
(So, the fire dies and the rest of the world sees by candlelight)

Where's the spray? There's none - just the prow of the boat pushing on through the foam
(Going where?)
Where this current pulls, getting ready to start to retrain as river, come back as condor

Keep that love in your sights; it's the rolling of thunder, mysterious lights
And row until it's time to retrain as river
Retrain as river, come back as condor
