I love this beautiful music video by Lady Mary Black -- and included it in chapter two of the following story. If you love Mary Black's song, you might enjoy the story: "A Man Was Walking in the Woods, Alone." And Mary's very lovely song also found its way into another story I wrote -- because her song touches my heart so sweetly. Thank you, Lady Mary Black. I hope my stories touch your heart as your music has begun to touch mine. https://marksimaginings.com/2020/05/08/a-man-was-walking-in-the-woods-alone/ https://marksimaginings.com/2020/05/01/el-marcos-secret-journal/

This old house is falling down around my ears I'm drowning in a river of my tears When all my will is gone, you hold me sway I need you at the dimming of the day You pull me like the moon pulls on the tide You know just where I keep my better side What days have come to keep us far apart? A broken promise or a broken heart Now all the bonnie birds have wheeled away I need you at the dimming of the day Come the night, you're only what I want Come the night, you could be my confident I see you on the street in company Why don't you come and ease your mind with me? I'm living for the night we steal away I need you at the dimming of the day Oh I need you at the dimming of the day

She changes the melody considerably from the original but in this case not for the better some of the notes she changes are the ones which define the song and give it the tension it needs. Still a great version.

Mary always makes a song her own - and then gives it to us in unmatched perfection using the beautiful instrument of her voice. There is nothing more calming, more healing than listening to Mary sing - and I am so grateful that Ireland has shared her with the world. We love her in the U.S. and I had the privilege of hearing her sing in Atlanta a week ago.

Nice cover of a great song that lends itself to many interpretations. Much as I like other versions, especially Bonnie Raitt's, Mary's irresistible Irish accent is perfect for it. Bravo. I think I will listen again.

Glorious song. Great version by Mary with Declan and others back in 1992. Richard and Linda, Bonnie and Paul Brady do very creditable versions and are all worthy. No doubt other fine versions exist, too. I see no point in arguing which is "best". As Shakespeare said "comparisons are odorous" ;). Let 100 flowers bloom.

I suspect that many, as do I, find the assertion that the song "is too big for her" to be nonsense. Mary's interpretation might not suit you, but her nearly a cappella opening clearly demonstrates Mary has the power, control and expressiveness to tackle the demands of the song's lyrics and melody. I prefer this interpretation to Mary's studio version as well as to any I have heard of three live performances by Bonnie I listened to/watched on YouTube..., none of which seem to be perfect. That said, perhaps perfection is relative and is found only in the eye (ear) of the beholder.

I listened to both Bonnie's version on "Nick in Time" and performance with Richard Thompson. In my opinion, neither comes close to this performance. Mary's expressiveness and dynamic range demonstrate this song is NOT too big for her.

@asengupta100 I've always loved Mary Black's singing. I have lots of her music. She knows how to wring the emotion from a song. But I like AJ Lee's version a bit better because she was not trying to pump emotion out, she was just singing with perfect innocence and perfect technique. If you get the chance, listen to how AJ turns, 'You know just where I keep my better si-i-i-i-i-i-iiiide...' into a rising series of 7 notes, instead of adding 'Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh--ooohhh'... after the phrase. Magical.

@asengupta100 This was the best version up until 2008, when AJ Lee sang it at a wedding, and it was upleaded onto Youtube. AJ was only 9 at the time, and I have never heard a more naturally gifted singer. The complete lack of artifice in her version is so perfect it leaves one breathless and weeping every time it's played.
