"Song For a Friend" as written by and Roddy Frame....
Awake in winter's crystal hours
And give to what gets you in the end
For the sake of a love that just devours
And smiles and takes and lays you down again

Run free the moon is always female
Straight to what's still and will not bend
Don't wait for his sunshine to surround you
Consume and fake and let you down again

'cause' life is short and you better get smart
To the people who know nothing and surround you
Stand straight in what kills you and confounds you
And break its chains and still believe

    General CommentYes! The acoustic version is so great as compared to the studio/album version. I believe he performed with Eddie (not sure of her last name) on Jools Holland and it was just perfect.
