Kill the envious moon That's sick and pale with grief In her morning sky She chases me through the trees The people are asleep Soundly in the shadows *Oh no we forgot that there are stars Above our incandescent crowns And you show me true solace Listening to the sounds of the forest Hearing leaves as they sing There’s a house on a hill With pear trees all around A chorus of crickets every night Why is the night sky shinin’ It’s lights in our eyes Where does the dirt road lead? *Oh no we forgot that there are stars Above our incandescent crowns And you show me true solace Listening to the sounds of the forest Hearing leaves as they sing Hearing leaves as they sing

I broke my guitar The splintered wood sharp as a blade Sometimes I get so angry at myself The first time that I spoke my mind they left me full of shame Just a lonely girl cryin’ on a plane I stood with an apple on my head I took my chances The reckless ones always first to die If I could turn back time I wouldn’t have to be so careful A single shot, An everlasting sorrow So I shoot That second arrow No sinner can be saved if he don’t cry And so I shoot That second arrow Hail mary, full of pain There is a train in southern Ohio Couldn’t stop in time A girl drinkin whiskey on the tracks No witch or conjurer Can bring her back Our mama left our home for good To live in a dirt poor neighborhood With a man that slept on the job in a factory She chose to look the other way When he stole the ring from her wedding day sayin ‘ “No one can love you like I do” So she shoots That second arrow No sinner can be saved if he don’t cry And so she shoots That second arrow Hail mary, full of pain Oh fireflies, calm me down Oh fireflies, calm me down I’m not God and I can’t Always forgive myself So I shoot That second arrow No sinner can be saved if he don’t cry And so I shoot That second arrow Hail mary, full of pain

Go to foreign lands Go without your friends You won’t know how to speak Till you have to speak for yourself You can’t read your poems Unless you’re really stoned You can't figure out what to do If you’re home all by yourself Can you imagine living in the same house for your whole life Mama drinks too much and keeps daddy in line In line Sometimes you’re better off taking the main line And living all alone under the pines You care what they think Despite what you told your shrink A deep-held need to satisfy As the self-doubt magnifies He don’t understand When you just need his hand Pick a fight at the bar But you still pay with his card Can you imagine living in the same house for your whole life Mama drinks too much and keeps daddy in line In line Sometimes you’re better off taking the main line And living all alone under the pines It’s safer to be afflicted It’s safer to be afflicted It’s safer to be afflicted Than accused Can’t find no bruises, bruises Can’t find no bruises on you Can’t find no bruises, bruises Can’t find no bruises On you Can you imagine living in the same house for your whole life Mama drinks too much and keeps Daddy in line In line Sometimes you’re better off taking the main line And living all alone under the pines

The cricket don’t cry if it broke a blade of grass The owl don’t try to make the night last There’s a thunderstorm in my head I let it roll, let it roll, let it roll Through me The rabbit don’t regret breakin’ some roots ‘Cause the old oak tree knows That you can’t build a home without makin’ some mistakes *Everything that I have ever done Is a drop in the ocean Everything that I have ever seen Is carved in my tree The robin don't know where her lover is She doesn’t think much of it She’s happy to greet the sunrise With a sweet cherry in her beak The lark don’t ever wake you ‘Cause you have somewhere to be No she’s prayin to her sun god What a blessing, who are we *Can the rustle of the waves Speak to the rustle of the leaves Oooooo And can any human being Hope to know what it means The cricket don’t cry if it broke a blade of grass The owl don’t try to make the night last There’s a thunderstorm in my head I let it roll, let it roll, let it roll Through me

Luna looks down on me and grins Heaven only wonders what she knows She follows me home atop the telephone wires As silent and sad as the stars Luna Luna She sighs as she hangs from the sky She’s seen many things of other men’s dreams And she’s still because she has none And she leaves not an echo when she breathes on the sea Nor when she lends a torch in the dark Luna Luna Sees me with those big, deep eyes She knows all the world and the universe too But she’s happy to follow me home And she knows all the world and the universe too But she’s happy just to follow me home

about

Linden Hollow's debut EP features six songs that span from haunting piano rock to earthy acoustic folk. Featuring the sometimes powerful & gritty, sometimes crystalline vocals of Rebecca McCusker, with Paige Vandiver's harmonies, the lyrics transport listeners to dusty railroads and summery forest-scapes. Linden Hollow's members are all multi-instrumentals, as Emily Ng switches back and forth between bass, viola, and saw, Rebecca McCusker swaps between piano and guitar for an ever-evolving sound that stays true to the gut-feel of the music.
