about

(Love Song To Emma Goldman)

lyrics

Once I was in love
She was locked up by her name
She wore an evening gown
To aid the Queen of Spain

Brought the people to the streets
So they could listen in
Glow of prison light
Her radiant refrain

They’re gonna send me away
If I speak up, speak up
They’re gonna send me away
If I cry out, cry out

If you’re lucky you’ll get all the money
There’s not enough to go around
If you’re lucky you’ll get all the money
You’ll be the loneliest man in town

Beneath this glaring color
Your nothing but your name
The beauty that surrounds us
Is dressed up all the same

I’d rather have roses on my table
Than diamonds round my neck
Tell me that the waters rising
Because I can think for myself

They’re gonna send me away
If I speak up, speak up
They’re gonna send me away
If I cry out , cry out

If you’re lucky you’ll get all the money
There’s not enough to go around
If you’re lucky you’ll get all the money
You’ll be the loneliest man in town

Wasn’t made for this machine
But they won’t set me free
Oh we have lost the truth
There’s nothing we can do
There’s nothing we can do :||

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.
