Lyrics
the moon is late


lying on its back
just above the horizon

through bare trees
through the bare trees
i think
I think the sun is rising

keeping me alive
yet i feel cold
years are passing through me
a long list
running backwards
away
away from me

I remember slipping on the ice
I remember gliding on a bike

tonight with the tree stumps
and the battle ground
so peaceful
only the birds
only the birds
only the birds can fly away

she calls to tell me it was snowing
I tell here to kiss everyone good night





i dig a little deeper
I watch some things just float away

the moon and the moon and the moon
and the moon
is now a slice of watermelon pie
made out of ice


the moon and the moon and the moon
and the moon
is now a slice of watermelon pie
made out of ice

I remember hands upon my face
with such grace

pay attention
cause we are all in trouble now

Really nice song, Tim. Thanks for the heads up.

I want some of that pie
It sounds very tastey. Brah, you write such touching music. Seems like there's a deep sense of loss even before the words come in. Though it doesn't sound right to say it- good job. Now I need a drink. ;-)

very nice song
and nicely sung too. Great arrangement. I would just have one suggestion. Some elements in the mix (piano, some percussion) sounded a little too loud compared to the rest. But overall, very nice work.

I like
the arrangement and performance. As Guy said, chaotic but it works.

I'd have backed of the piano a touch perhaps but a really interesting style and very involving.

Cheers

Dick

Cool piano intro. Lovely relaxed vibe and stream-of-consciousness lyric. Your layered vocals cool as always. I'm touched by this audio movie.

Excellent song! Love the flowing dreamy melody. Recalls Magical Mystery Tour era Beatles. The arrangement is well done with a lot of interesting nuances and details in each instrument and vocal part.

Cool piano line. The images in the lyric have the feel of a dream, and the way the sounds blend into one another augment that feeling. I like the lead guitar break.
