lyrics

River flow down
As you wander by my lonely town
Honey don’t forget
The bird that sings to you from the east

And darling I’m afraid I can’t swim
And darling many years since I’ve been
And darling won’t you please let me in
This suitcase of dreams was too heavy in the end

The moon she is a friend of mine
She says she saw you driving blindly
I don’t know whose god draws these lines
That keeps me from your fireside

And darling I’m afraid I can’t swim
And darling many years since I’ve been
And darling won’t you please let me in
This suitcase of dreams was too heavy in the end

There’s something changing on the wind
Can’t pretend to understand
Its time to go
Said I’ve wasted precious time
All you see are dollar signs
Not our love

There’s something changing on the wind
Can’t pretend to understand
Its time to go
Said I’ve wasted precious time
All you see are dollar signs
Not our love

There’s no good way to say goodbye
There’s no good way to say goodbye
There’s no good way to say goodbye
There’s no good way to say goodbye

about

EMMA JUNE Amherst, Massachusetts

Emma June sings about the ways in which we build ourselves into empty factories of potential productivity & transform ourselves into lonely machines, the campaign to keep heart, head & hands connected & yes, love lost & won.

Music unfolds into a howl, towers of dreamy harmonies, reverberant instrumentation, while the riverside rings with red-winged blackbirds & takes you away without apology.
