Same Moon 03:13
Every time a star falls down  You lose a little peace of mind Feels like sinking through the ground Like quicksand when you try to fight Right now things are looking dark  And danger’s always creeping up But you’ll see Things are gonna be alright We’re all staring at the same moon                            We’re all crazy fighters and fools And we run in circles when we could be flying Aim up, aim up, aim up And shoot the moon We could build a world that’s only Lived before inside our dreams If we work it out then  We can bring it to reality Right now things are looking dark  And danger’s always creeping up But you’ll see Things are gonna be alright We’re all staring at the same moon                            We’re all crazy fighters and fools And we run in circles when we could be flying Aim up, aim up, aim up And shoot the moon If you wish upon a star You might just find out who you are And if you set your sights up high You’ll find that you know how to fly And if you let your head back down And watch the world go round and round Then you’ll get to the end of time And find you’ve let your life go by

The Tower 03:57
It would be okay by me If you were to wake up from your sleeping Living in a world of dreams Open up your eyes and you could see them We built a tower up so high Beautiful so all the world could see it Thought that we could touch the sky But it’s falling We’re falling Everybody’s got a dream That we’re trying to hold on to Maybe things aren’t what they seem And it slips right through our fingers Everything went up in flames Leaving only skeletons of what was Maybe it was all in vain And always was It always was  Everybody’s got a dream That we’re trying to hold on to Maybe things aren’t what they seem And it slips right through our fingers And all the king’s horses and all the king’s men Couldn’t put it back together  All the king’s horses and all the king’s men Couldn’t put it back together again It would be okay by me If you were to wake up from your sleeping Living in a world of dreams Open up your eyes and you could see them     Everybody’s got a dream That we’re trying to hold on to Maybe things aren’t what they seem And it slips right through our fingers

Ashes & Dust 04:04
After the apocalypse, if we survive What would be left over, could we salvage it And if we were swept under the water Would you come find me So that we can find our peace together What will become of what we’ve done After it’s all over What will shine through ashes and dust After all is settled Can you see the billowing of smoke and the brimstone They’re a living testament to a downfall Maybe we can lay right here together Till the stars go dark Nothing lasts forever, everything is transferred Will we remember What will become of what we’ve done After it’s all over What will shine through ashes and dust After all is settled Go through the flames And you will see what you’re made of It’s beauty remains And pierces through like a diamond Like a diamond What will become of what we’ve done After it’s all over What will shine through in the end it’s Truth will find the surface

A young explorer at heart, Merry Ellen Kirk challenges the stigma of the formulaic love song, daring her audience to consider the world in a new light. A tale of heartbreak, fragility, tension, resolution, deep longing & what-could've-beens, Feather & a Leaf continues the dreamy artistic tone that we loved so much in Firefly Garden, to a poignant lyrical exploration of the human capacity to love. ... more
