Earth Turns

by Jamie Gage

This politically-charged debut collection of rootsy alt-folk-rock songs has drawn comparisons to the music of Leonard Cohen and Bruce Cockburn for its strong sense of social justice and trenchant, heart-felt lyrics.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Lyrics for "Mary Drives by the Moonlight" and "The Water is Rising"

Mary Drives by the Moonlight

Mary drives by the moonlight, chasing clouds through the trees
Watch her hair as it falls down, through her fingers down to her knees.
Her blue eyes gaze out at the open road, moving out into the pines
These fields recede into memory--far from this stolen time.

Silent, she moves with utter certainty, speaks before being asked,
laughs at man's veiled duplicity--at their cracked, long broken masks
So bring me my wine and roses she said, she said and then she woke.
Her life is more than her destiny-- she lives to go for broke.

This room, these walls that surround us now, arms and legs are all entwined—
listen to hear that old lonely voice: tell me she's not mine.
So seal these windows and lock the doors, take all her air away;
She'll rise up high above the stars-- lifetimes from this stolen fray.

So bring me my wine and roses, she said, she said and then she woke.
Her life is more than her destiny-- she lives to go for broke.
...she’s all wheels and no smoke …she’s all fire and no smoke
She’s Mary driving by the moonlight And she lives to go for broke.



The Water is Rising

The water is rising: it’s up to my knees
Winter is a long time to watch rising seas
My days are a chained link, my nights are much worse
Redemption’s a swan song, to the people I hurt.

Will you wait at the gate for me tomorrow?
Will you wait on the other side for me?
Will you wait in the arms of another?
Will you wait till the end of history?

If love is the answer that makes it all clear,
Throw open your doors, baby, throw out the fear
The water is rising: It’s up to my chest
The sky has come burning, pouring down - put love to the test.

We ride by the music, we hide from the strife
But it’s live free or die man, make sense of your life
The water is rising: it’s up to my face
My mind is a drum now, my eyes see the whole human race.
