lyrics

It’s your radio silence again.
My friend, you’re breaking my heart.
You called, but all I heard was nothing remarkable
That taught me what loneliness was.

If I’m being honest I wish I could find
The source of the howl that keeps me up so late at night
Oh my darling, I’ve served my time
You’ve done me wrong so leave it alone.

These days oh they slow around me
Your songs tell me stories as I wonder through this city
Is lovers stacked up to the sky—scrapped my knees
So I don’t say goodbye.

If I’m being honest I wish I could find
The source of the howl that keeps me up so late at night
Oh my darling, I’ve served my time
You’ve done me wrong so leave it alone.

I’ve traveled from town to town
There’s nothing like this built for us
I’ve traveled from town to town
This city of dollars and dust

Darling one thing that you should know
I’ve been bruised and erased and my hope is tired and worn.
Through the holes shines your light, you try to wash me clean
Still I cling to what I could have been.

If I’m being honest I wish I could find
The source of the howl that keeps me up so late at night
Oh my darling, I’ve served my time
You’ve done me wrong so leave it alone.

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.
