LYRICS

The sun is going down
Let’s gather all around
The sun is going down
Let’s gather all around
The sun is going down

You bring the wood and I’ll bring the wine
The dancing of the moon can keep our only time
Let’s find a lonely roof or a tree that faces west
Let light recall our faces ‘til it sinks beneath the crest

This night, with you, and you and you....

The sun is going down
Let’s gather all around
The jangle of our feet
Let’s frolic, dance, repeat
The sun is going down

Let’s climb down in the dark, set fire to the logs
The murmur of our voices mingles music with the frogs
The grouse have gone to bed, and the baby squirrel too
Come snuggle here with me, maybe we’re the next ones to

This night, with you, this night with you...

We watch the ducks fly south
I taste the wonder in your mouth
I know we’re not always together
But we are birds of a feather

Wren’s Celtic-inspired folk music evokes the lands and waters of the many places she has called home. Celebrated for her pure and original vocals and the rich imagery of her song-writing, Wren's music speaks to dreams, the cycles of nature, and the dance of solitude and intimacy. Her third album, due out in fall 2020, is a musical exploration of four seasons in Washington's Methow Valley. ... more
