about

A hopeful and lyrically vivid treatise on the power of each of us to create change. Written the night after Trump was elected; based on a melody Jason originally created for the nursery rhyme “Hey Diddle Diddle”.

lyrics

A stitch in time to leave the coat all sewn, covers his weary back
And the silvery line of evening sky brings an end to the herald age
Darkness lies on the wings of a dove, white against the black
It flies to the fields where the yellow bellies grow, sleeping alone and sad
Sleeping alone and sad, sleeping alone and sad
It flies to the fields where the yellow bellies grow, sleeping alone and sad

Sadness strikes like two front fangs, turned to poisoned blood
The years roll by and the little people say, “there’s a change, a coming flood”
The dam won’t break, the river won’t freeze; where’s the change in that?
I see by the light of the evening sky, a star is trying to shine
A star is trying to shine, a star is trying to shine
I see by the light of the evening sky, a star is trying to shine

A shining star in the night’s black cloak, a thread of glowing might
I wonder where the little ones are going to pray, wishing upon this night
A wish for love, a wish for peace, a wish for coming joy
Until this darkness turns to day, I’ll close my eyes and cry
Close my eyes and cry, close my eyes and cry
Until those dreams comes true these days, I’ll close my eyes and cry

about

Pharis & Jason Romero Horsefly, British Columbia

Their deep love of old music, rural life, and archaic banjo tunings are the undercurrents; the desires for love, connection and community flow throughout. The songs form a constellation that tells an ancient and archetypal story visible to anyone who looks up at the sky on a summer night. And to all those who listen it whispers down below: “Slow down, dig deep, and love your neighbor.” ... more
