Bright as the Moon
The first song from Juma, which arrives April 1
Hello. I’m back in your inbox after a year-long break. What happened?
I bought an old house in Nova Scotia. Trying to live in it has required effort.
I met some people. Trying to live with them has required attention.
All of the other stuff. Trying to live is a full-time job.
But here I am in spite of it all, using up valuable resources to tell you that I’m sharing a new album on April 1st, Fool’s Day, 2022.
The album is called Juma. The first song is called “Bright as the Moon.”
Here’s a video:
Here’s a link to pre-save the album on Spotify, if you’re into that.
And here’s a link to pre-order the album on Bandcamp, if you’re crazy enough to pay money for digital music.
As a reminder, you’re not obligated to do anything.
BRIGHT AS THE MOON
I forget that I'm dreaming
When I talk to you
So when I wake, I wonder:
Were you dreaming too?
When we shine together
We're as bright as the moon
So before we say goodnight
Just look up
The scattered ashes of a million lights
Bleed through the sky
We'll tumble backwards
And be reunited, you and I
But tonight we question why
We question why
I think I must be near you
Though I'm far away
So when I wake up from my dream
I hope you'll stay
Wrap your arms around me
Shine as bright as the moon
And the darkness of the night sky too
It's all a dream to you
Just look up
Though it makes our spirits shine
As bright as the moon
I can see the men inside of women
And I can see the women inside of men
The words are false, but the energy is true
Something about the sun and moon
And about water and fire
Something about our eyes
And the way that we see in twos
You can name a person, but you can't name a spirit
I can see us shining as bright as the moon
I remember dancing in the womb with you
Before we became
You and I
