The setup paints a picture of Erin enjoying the finer things in life before being brought back down to Earth.
An Enchanting Resort
She can travel to the places she wants and enjoy the relaxing things that the world has to offer, but life at home continues and pulls her back in the midst of her splendour. The music fits the story perfectly. Voice and piano are all we hear through the verses and, as I mentioned earlier, these are delivered with real beauty and grace. They are the antithesis of harsh; calm and composed, keeping the focus of the listener on the lyrics and the soothing melodies.
Song Of the Islands
The chorus introduces the soft brushing of drums, if only to liven things up and separate it from the verse. Delicately played, this is the third and final element introduced. Voice, piano and drums. Simplicity at its finest.
The vocal delivery in the chorus tends towards country, with a jaunty melody reminiscent of Dolly Parton. Prog in length, pop in structure. It does make me think of something that would be sung to a small child to calm its nerves in the midst of a thunderstorm.
