Album Notes
“Esmeraldas” is a song about a forest fire, and a heart broken by the loss of a beautiful and precious place.

The singer laments the destruction of a beautiful forest, where she lived in a sparkling glass house. She also laments the unexpected behavior of someone she trusted, who burned down the forest and sacrificed a precious story without heeding the consequences.

This song is dedicated to the forests of the world which are currently in flames. It is also dedicated to the care, awareness, and sensitivity that we have within us, and which we can use to put out the flames, restore trust, and serve the landscapes we love and depend upon.


Once there was a forest
Which shone with emerald leaves
And in this grove a glass house
Sparkled amidst the trees

Once there was a forest
Set to smoldering flame
When you struck a tiny match
For the glory of the game

For fire drew you more than light
And slowly this lovely world turns

And the forest blazed like molten glass
As the fire scored its path
And the forest blazed like molten glass
And my aching heart stood worn and still
And yearned for the flames to pass

The grove and glass once glistened
Evading wealth and fame
Emerald leaves and branches
And gleaming windowpanes

Ancient life has come and gone
And quickly this deep beauty burns

And what if the match had lit a candle
That gave off a soft light
That is a world that I could handle
And we would have been alright
