Your Name 04:08
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
2.
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?

Soft Eyes 05:19
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
4.
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
5.
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
6.
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
7.
Come In 04:02
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
8.
Be Life 03:57
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

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
