about

Fingerstyle guitar. Atypical detours in melody. An LGBTQ+ couple embarking on a joint project. You can cherry-pick the aspects you like, but at the heart of the new Lily On The River single is, really, all of it: the uncompromising songcraft, a commitment to difference, and the gender narrative.

lyrics

Rustling leaves on the trees
saw you there once up on the hill
Sundresses dancing with the wind
And clouds witnesses

Somber in shades of gray and blue
My mind flaunts a scene and there I met you again

But they’re all replays without a sequel
Did we unconsciously decide to be too careful?
Wrapped up in this

Unhappy serenity
Killing us right in between
Of letting go or meant-to-be

In another life the stars would have aligned
Making us great, but not
This time

We knew (we knew) the seams were loose (I thought I did all that I could)
For you (for you) I still tried to chase the sun (I still thought you were the one)
While we're wrapped up in this
Wrapped up in this

Unhappy serenity
Killing us right in between
Of letting go or meant-to-be

In another life the stars would have aligned
Making us great
But not this time

Unhappy serenity
Two hearts uncharted, then found, then freed
There’s no waking up to what isn’t a dream

Unhappy serenity
How did it feel to see me again
Does it remain as how you loved me then?
