about

From Jack Hotel's sophomore album, Voices from the Moon, out 5/13/2016 on Sower Records.

lyrics

I lay beneath an apple tree
Watched the branches and the leaves
The sun was shiverin' in the breeze
Throwin' dapples on the shade
And in the shelter I had made
It was easier to believe
That our love would never fade
And that you would never leave

I'd rather be the shadow shade
Underneath your window sill
Where the sun don't ever spill
And the paint don't ever fade
On the green side of the hill
Well protected from the day
Where the sun don't ever spill
And the paint don't ever fade

On the low side of the road
Or the dark side of the moon
Buried underneath a stone
Hid away from common view
Like a turtle in a shell
Or a wish thrown in a well
Or a secret you don't tell
Because you hope it isn't true

I'd rather be the shadow shade
Underneath your window sill
Where the sun don't ever spill
And the paint don't ever fade

People's hair grows white with age
From white to yellow turns the page
And the meadow turns to brown
When the seasons turn around

I'd rather be the shadow shade
Underneath your window sill
Where the sun don't ever spill
And the paint don't ever fade

Since their start in 2012, Jack Hotel has proven itself one of the best, and most original, folk acts in the midwest. ... more
