Biography

Eva Marie Cassidy (February 2, 1963 in Washington, DC – November 2, 1996 in Bowie, Maryland) was an American vocalist described by the British newspaper The Guardian as "one of the greatest voices of her generation." She had a diverse repertoire of jazz, blues, folk, gospel and pop. Cassidy remained virtually unknown outside of her native Washington, DC, when she died of melanoma (which had spread to her bones) in 1996. Her posthumously released recordings have since sold in excess of four million copies, and in early 2001 the compilation album Songbird reached #1 on the UK album charts.

    Lyrics
    You'll remember me when the west wind moves upon the fields of barley
    You'll forget the sun in his jealous sky as we walk in fields of gold
    So she took her love for to gaze awhile upon the fields of barley
    In his arms she fell as her hair came down among the fields of gold
    Will you stay with me, will you be my love among the fields of barley?

    Lyrics
    For you there'll be no crying
    For you the sun will be shining
    'Cause I feel that when I'm with you
    It's all right I know it's right
    And the songbirds keep singing

    Lyrics
    Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
    In the land that I've heard of once, once in a lullaby
    Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
    And the dreams that you dare to dream
    Really do come true

    Lyrics
    Lying in my bed I hear the clock tickin', think of you
    Turning in circles, confusion is nothing new
    Flashback to moon nights, almost left behind
    A suitcase of memories, time after sometime
    You picture me, I'm walking too far ahead

    Lyrics
    The falling leaves drift by my window
    The falling leaves of red and gold
    I see your lips the summer kisses
    The sunburned hands I used to hold
    Since you went away the days grow long
