anis I love how beautifully written Greta’s songs always are. The way her words make me feel things, and like I personally know Jackie and Tim. Favorite track: When The Sun Comes Up.

lyrics

We are playing midnight mary
My turn to sleep in the cemetery
The last flicker of this lighter
Is the only flame I have
My parents think I'm sleeping at Jackie's
Her parents think she's sleeping at mine
still a year til my dad will leave
And my mom will wear sunglasses all the time

I'm not afraid of seeing ghosts in the night
I'm not afraid of the boogeyman running his hands down my spine
I'm only afraid of the kind of darkness that doesn't end when the sun comes up

My boyfriend Tim will join the army
Just to get the college money
And on the night before he leaves
He'll give me his guitar
But he won't make it overseas
He won't have to see a war
His comrades will get him wasted
And leave him for three days in a car

I'm not afraid of seeing ghosts in the night
I'm not afraid of the boogeyman running his hands down my spine
I'm only afraid of the kind of darkness that doesn't end when the sun comes up

In ten years I will love a man
More than I think I can
And we will have two daughters
And give them this broken land

If I don't get to live again
I can't let the bad guys win
One last look before I go
I'll be overcome with love

I'm not afraid of seeing ghosts in the night
I'm not afraid of the boogeyman running his hands down my spine
I'm only afraid of the kind of darkness that doesn't end when the sun comes up

I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid

greetings summer plums,

my new musical work was inspired by two years spent wandering the American southwest while navigating a neurological voice disorder. I'm so grateful to have recovered enough voice to record again and even more grateful that you're here to listen.
