Joan of Arc with Michael Smith & Jamie O’Reilly

“I am fire,” he replied. “I love your solitude, I love your pride.”

Myself I long for love and light. But must it come so cruel, so bright?”

Song Notes from Jamie O’Reilly

II’ve always let myself succumb co the erotic mysticism of this song, and it holds up 20 years later.

Listen here.
