lyrics

and if you go walking, in a world made of stars
the neon reflection, of your face in the dark
and the heat of the city, in the curve of your palm
look away, my darling, look away my loved one

and god bless the terror, that brings you to bed
your lily white knuckles, your bruising, your breath
from the dark where you called out, and the things that you said
look away, my darling, look away my dear friend

you’re not alone, you’re not alone, you’re not alone

and under your eyelids, it’s quiet, it’s safe
but he stole the sun from where it lay on your face
and never a day you don’t cry out to wake
look away, my darling, look away, look away
look away, my darling, look away, look away

and how deep the water that carries you home
the warm cotton smell of the clean forest floor
and drifting in dreams, let it go, let it go
look away, my darling, look away from it all
look away, my darling, look away from it all

about

Anna Tivel Portland, Oregon

Anna Tivel's wide-eyed celestial folk songs belong in a similar
ballpark with Anais Mitchell, Gregory Alan Isakov and Laura
Veirs, where gentle picking plucks among occasionally
unconventional sounds and a gorgeous voice tells stories of
life in a world of natural wonders. The resulting music is
incredibly honest, lyric-driven, and deeply affecting.
