lyrics

Beyond Baylon
if there’s a light
what is it shining on
Behind battle lines
are faith and fire
all we know to stay alive

How long, how long
will we be soldiering on
How long, how long
will we be soldiering on

Is god
alive or dead or not
Or in the child
following his mother’s heart
Her eyes shed a holy light
that can’t be seen
through the lens of a satellite

How long, how long
will they be soldiering on
How long, how long
will they be soldiering on

He watches stars descend
“mama when will it end”
“darling the stars aren’t falling
lay in my arms now
I don’t know for
How long, how long
they’ll be soldiering on
How long, how long
they’ll be soldiering on

The stars, the stars
the stars aren’t falling
The stars, the stars
the stars aren’t falling
The stars, the stars
the stars aren’t falling
The stars, the stars
the stars aren’t gone

It rises to deep heights and settles into a spacious melodic equilibrium. The SF Chronicle describes Owen Roberts' lyrics as "visceral" and the sound as "perfectly Californian." ... more
