lyrics

He’s the jester in the street
Throw a dime to watch him dance
Ash butterflies been clouding his eyes
There are some things I don’t understand

Will you find the right word to say?
I’m so tired of this hangman’s game
This sand money won’t set you free
Put a smile on, get back on your feet

The angel of the cobblestones
There’s no one to reset his bones
When the lovers leave the road
There’s no where to call home

Oh we don’t make nice
We built this house of bone
The sun is going down, darling
I’m not the lonely one

Will you find the right word to say?
I’m so tired of this hangman’s game
Sand money won’t set you free
So put a smile on, get back on your feet

There’s a grand price to be paid
For the view by the sea where they live
But the beggars’ the only one free
From that lonely price of poverty

Will you find the right word to say?
I’m so tired of this hangman’s game
This sand money won’t set you free
Put a smile on, get back on your feet

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.
