about

Anne Garner's fourth album is a beguiling blend of alternative pop, spectral lullabies and tender neo-classical arrangements. This dreamy, eerie and unashamedly beautiful collection of vocal-electronic crossover works represents the patient distillation of raw life experience into something subtle, ethereal and sublime. The album follows Remaking the Pearl, Magic & Madness and the acclaimed Trusting a Twirled World.

"They’re not just pretty songs – they have a real emotional weight and depth. They comfort, they console and they protect. She treats the music like a son or a daughter, as if it were the most precious person in the world. It’s the way that music should be treated. It isn’t just something to listen to, but something to experience, something to cherish. Don’t let it be music; let it be life."
James Catchpole, Fluid Radio

Track Name: Your Name
As I walk unseen
As I roam heaven
Here I hold a secret seal
But I do want to know
or hear your name

Born to the soul of a seed
Out of the dark and away we go
Fallen and lost to the wind and the rain
But I do want to know
I do want to know
or hear your name
Track Name: All That's Left
Which way will you move?
Fumbling like a fool
Nothing more to lose
that daring sunny mood now past

All that’s left is freezing fast
No room for love, it might not last
If all that’s felt is torn apart
then who will keep your wounded heart in theirs?

Something in your mind
warms you from inside
Old shapes in the clouds
Words to say out loud

All that’s left is freezing fast
No room for love, it might not last
If all that’s felt is torn apart
then who will keep your wounded heart in theirs?
Track Name: Soft Eyes
The coolest shades reflect in here
No welcome tunes ring in my ear
I sit and watch, fold in and wait
and lament a time beside a glowing fire

No coarse crust crumbles before me now
No bended reeds do sigh
I sit and watch, fold in and wait
and harden in winter’s cruelest frost

I wish you could see
I wish you could hear
Track Name: Wednesday's Child
Caught a glimpse through the wall
why we fly and why we fall
why the child in me can never grow old

Goodbye heavy cloud
you've cried far too long
No more hanging on
this storm is moving

This storm is moving
This storm is moving
This storm is moving
Track Name: Wherever You Go
I am right here
close your eyes dear
no you won't fall down

Let me hold you
in the darkness
so you won't fall down

In the morning
I will kiss you
no you won't fall down

I am right here
close your eyes dear
no you won't fall down

I am right here
I am right here
I am right here
Track Name: Leave Your Bed
Close your eyes my love
and sleep instead
Let your anchor free
Float away

Leave your bed
Leave your bed

Flee the pain my love
Go home instead
Over night and day
Float away
Float away
Float away

Leave your bed
Leave your bed
Leave your bed
Leave your bed
Leave your bed
Track Name: Come In
Oh come in
Oh come in
Losing touch again
Come back to me

Oh come near
My eyes are weary come here
Brave feet in the soil
and time alone

Oh I'm sinking
Oh I'm sinking
Track Name: Be Life
This faded memory
it feels like coming home
Please draw me closer
let the warmth fill up my soul
I see, here there can be life
