LYRICS
All summer standin' over the garden
The air was sweet and the flowers so alive with
A will to reach the sun but
I could not feel the sun at all
I saw hens and there were foxes
Somehow the baby birds grew strong enough to
Fly but I could not fly
Sing but my lips were dry

And when the curling vines caressed me so
I could hardly find the voice to say "Please: Let me go."

I waited every day in summer
Blooming four o'clocks and fireflies, they
Pleaded valiantly yet
My heart was still defiant
And then you came into my garden
Just as autumn winds were swaying the trees
And when you lit upon me
I felt your pulse go beat beat

And as I strove to shed these scales of gray
This trembling must have frightened you away
Oh no, oh my
Oh no, oh my
Oh no, away

about

Little Cinema New York

We're an indie pop band that lives between Brooklyn and Austin. We love old books, balmy weather, star charts and Basquiat. Our spirit animal is Sir Ernest Shackleton and our first album is about Adventure. We don't care for the red thread, the Moon in Capricorn or the Yankees. Definitely not the Yankees.
