about

Based on the story of the fatal plane crash that killed pilot Ray Gran, DFC in Saskatchewan during the summer of 1959 and the successful search and rescue of the plane in 2018. Sadly, his wife Marcella never got the news as she passed on the very night that the plane was retrieved. This single coincides with the release of the book, "Into The Mist" by Victoria Hetherington.

lyrics

May we come with you? She said, may we come with you my love?
He said, No you cannot go. It’s for the best, you’ll need rest before the child is due.
I will miss you so. She said, I will miss you so my love.
Please turn around, please come back down. Please return from where you’re bound.

Marcella never got the news. Marcella never got the news.
Waiting on an answer that could never come to soon.
But Marcella never got the news.

Where have you gone? She said, where are you now my love?
You promised me forever. Please don’t leave me here suspended between darkness & dawn.

Marcella never got the news. Marcella never got the news.
Waiting on an answer that could never come to soon.
But Marcella never got the news.

Ray, I watched you fly away miles away into the eye of a mystery.
When I turned around you fell back down into the arms of history.

I cried for you. She said, I cried so damn hard for you.
When I dream I see you fly into a myriad of blue.
High above the fog where nothing touches you.

Marcella never got the news. Marcella never got the news.
She was waiting on an answer that could never come to soon.

I am holding on. I am holding to you my love.
A golden ring upon a broken wing. It’s just a little too late for me.
But now you are near. You will soon be here my love.
You and I are news. Me and you, we are eternity.....
