It's hard to live in a small stream When the wind currents blowing Flowers are snowing Pushing you back You dream like you have any meaning When you're drowning inside But your heart is alive Oh your own true love I know I want to go home But I'm not going back Not going back Even if it kills me I'm leaving Going to go to the garden Going to find my way Thru the storm and clouds Into the meadow You fall down the apple tree But you won't give up Until the earth dries up Dirt on your hands I know I want to go home But I'm not going back Not going back Even if it kills me I'm not going back...

I don't know when you came back Oh I don't know when you came back Oh I don't know when you came back Don't know when you came back The sun comes like broken roses On the ground of your heart I can't take you away from where you came back I know I loved you for always I don't know where your heart is And I don't know where You have troubled eyes You have troubled eyes And why don't you realize The sun will come like broken roses On the stream of your heart I can't take you away from Where you came back I know I loved you for always And I don't know where You have troubled eyes You have troubled eyes And why don't your realize I don't know when you came back And I don't know

Violet 04:46
You have come So far away for awhile Your seasons change Violet Violet I've come to you Violet You have fallen A stray from fall I know I will rain for awhile Violet I've come to you Violet

River 03:09
She rode down the river She fell off the boat She came down the waterfall She rode down the river Don't you know Don't you know Don't you know She fell down the body lie And she rode in your heart so night And I felt you And I felt you Down Your hiding Don't you fell away from you A row for many years Torn into She rowed down the river And she cut for emptiness I felt you in my heart In my heart

Seagarden 03:00
Wait for ambers They've left your mind Calm for awhile Your heart is mine Oh you've found You've fallen asleep One is lighted enough for me You sunshine me And you walk when you fall All I wanted was you When you all have found The love in your mind I knew I've fallen for you You sunshine me You for sunshine
7.
I drove until I arrived at the scene Of all my stories With gardens of tea Fog lit the roadways And I swam into the darkness With beads in my hair Oh and you You sing to me And you ran away Barefoot and happy We glide into the soft windy song Reading books along the way Trying to find answers Lying in the meadows somewhere Buried so deep And you You sing to me And you ran away Do you want to believe Oh do you want to believe Do you want to believe in me Lying in a dark bedroom With morning shadows highlighting you Like snow stuck upon your skin You drink away all that is there All I wanted was love All I wanted was love All I wanted was gone Paper torn into pieces Of stone apples cold and lifeless I once saw the world as dust In my glasses
8.
Fly Away 04:47
I softly watch the rain fall I quietly close my eyes I'll fly away To fade this life again I'll fly away To save this life again I found your heart Buried underground I flew to the moon To find where you had gone I'll fly away To fade this life again I'll fly away To fade this life again

Red 03:46
I remember the day When you ran away Your top hat and cane Your pale skin and your shame Screaming your house Walking along Screaming your house Singing in red I remember the stage As the red curtains rose You were exposed To the music in your bones Your heart wilted The earth tilted Like a fallen rose Like a lily in search of water Screaming your house Walking alone Screaming your house Singing in red

Evelyn Star 01:03
Did you know I fell so far I know I know I waited so long I know I waited so long I know I loved you Way back when We were children I know I know you We fell in love We fell in love dear

Ezra Moon 05:05
It is easy for me to believe All girls are crooked All the best friends I've ever had Have been drowned by the dust You have been drowned by the dust You have crept in the tree Of an old oak village I once knew Before I was born Oh you're living on the bough Of the old craggily ezra moon Away I have found a way To the one I've felt for years

about

Autumn Shade is the nom de plume of Jes Lenee', a stunning young songstress brimming with unbridled talent. Armed with a satchel full of pensively beautiful tunes, Lenee' possesses a voice as pristine as any your ears will have heard in this lifetime. The fact that Lenee' calls Tulsa, Oklahoma home only adds to the mystery, for her music is much more aligned with the astral plane than anything resembling the Okie Plains. Lenee' is a classically trained piano prodigy, who at the age of eleven was penning songs that won award recognition. Ultimately seduced by the craft of songwriting, Autumn Shade is a marriage of her piano prowess and folk-inspired guitar strumming, imbued in a heady ambiance and enveloped in some of the most heavenly, intimate vocals to have come down the pike in some time.

Formed in 2002, the band self-releasing an EP entitled Grandfather's Attic, which caused a stir in the Tulsa and Midwest area; in the live setting, the band incorporates painter Derick Snow, who creates his pieces on stage, allowing the moods to dictate the whim of his creations, lending a tactile visual element to the music. Set to splash with their full-length debut Ezra Moon, Autumn Shade has concocted a fascinating foray into an ethereal, yet emotionally raw netherworld.

Ezra Moon is a journey into a unique sepia-toned microcosm, one that intertwines folk, chamber music, psychedelia, avant-rock and indie singer/songwriter. Opening with the wispy "Sparrow", a delicate piano interlude softly fluttering in and out of focus like a foggy memory, the misty landscape spills into "Home", a folk-inspired lament driven by acoustic strumming and Jes Lenee's yearning vocals. Colored by additional instrumentation of violin, hammer dulcimer and percussion, and a healthy penchant for sonic experimentation, the narcotic, detached feel of Ezra Moon is reminiscent of albums by the female artists that helped define the 4AD sound. Jes Lenee's classical roots and compositional sense invoke the avant-chamber feel of Rachel's, if they were enveloped in the hazy folk atmosphere that Marissa Nadler resides in. Ezra Moon is an entrancing debut, inaugurating Autumn Shade into the contemporary folk scene with an understatedly personal and cinematic sound.
