I am only as sure
As the sun falling low
Like a bird learns to fly
Like a man learns to cry

I’ve been drinking away
And not singing enough
So I’m taking to flight
In an effort to fight
My diminishing ways
These diminishing days
Somehow I am always moving away
John Heart Jackie - Siren Song

Do you ever dream
Of taking your life
To make into something your own
Do you ever dream
Of taking your life
For I dream of taking my own
To put in the hands you love
to put in the hands that you

So do not be alarmed
If I leave you behind
And it fills up your eyes
All shadows shorten in time
All shadows shorten in time


from Siren Song (Single), track released May 10, 2011
We wrote this song in a park in San Diego, CA and recorded it in our bathroom in Portland, OR. If you listen closely you can hear our roommate making himself lunch in the background.

Our dear friend Luke Ydstie played the upright bass. We're honored he could join us.

Please download, share with your friends. We'll be touring the U.S. this year so if you're close by please come say hi!
