about

Emma Claire Gies Boston, Massachusetts

I play violin and sing, mostly. With my music I work to create a space of beauty, flow, and release (of knots, physical, mental, emotional) in favor of an ever expanding heart.

Track Name: A Lover's Dream
my love I will wait for you by the riverside so clear
on our rock in the valley green where our spirits moved as one

I'll wait for you there as long as you need
my love you know I'll wait

my love will you wait for me in the melody we dreamed?
you know the one, the gentle lullaby that passed between our minds

I'm sorry for the way the winds I let them sway me dear
not strong enough to hold the most delicate of harmonies

way down inside, way down inside I knew all along
way down inside I knew all along

want to give you everything, everything
want to give you everything
as if the earth would just stop turning, if the earth would just stop turning
everything, want to give you everything
as if the earth would just stop turning
if the earth would just stand still

always I'll wait
always I'll wait
Track Name: Recognize Recognize
my mind it moves at such a speed
can't be with what's in front of me
and I still don't know, still don't know what I'm looking for

hey little angel don't you know?
you're looking for the heaven for the great below
hey little angel don't you know?
you're looking for the promise land

so now I shiver and I plan like I could hold it in my hand
up and down, wound around my own finger
will you tell me about your dreams?
i'd like to know

hush spoke the creature and slowly slowly give away your holy holy
there that hides your quiet fears, violent crafty keen
all of this made by the many many for the one for the penny penny
through my eyes into yours see soul
recognize recognize

hey little angel don't you know?
you're looking for the heaven for the great below
hey little angel don't you know?
you're looking for the promise, you're looking for a promise
you're looking for the promise land
Track Name: Bloom
let that pollen cloud your eyes, won't you bloom today
let it fall that harsh disguise, come out to play
they will all tell you you're undone
lingering in ash on the run
empty handed men, they are starving from the end to beginning

feel the fullness of the day and let it pull you on
what was old is new today and you have just begun

don't let them tell you you're undone
lingering in ash on the run
empty handed men they are starving from the end to beginning ending longing belonging

I know of the wealth which you crave
violent is the path we have paved
I know of the gold that is dripping from your soul and is undying dying longing belonging
Track Name: It's Alright
you know I've always dreamed of a love that perseveres
one that's stronger than the pull of greed and empty promises
I knew that you were stronger
I sensed your heart of gold
so I gave you what I could never name, what can't be bought or sold

it's alright it's alright it's alright it'll be alright
it's alright it's alright just keep moving til' the morning light

the perfumed smoke so enticing, the image appearing so real
you had to taste it one time you say before you seal the deal
so I call out for the doctor, but the medic wouldn't show
if I scream and shout can I throw this bout? can I quit this morbid show?

it's alright it's alright it's alright it'll be alright
it's alright it's alright just keep moving til' the morning light

do you hear me? do you hear me now?
that the deed is done that the war is won
and my heart breaks when I hear the sound
do you love me now? can you love me now?
do you hear me? do you hear me? do you hear me? do you hear me now?

it's alright it's alright it's alright it'll be alright
it's alright it's alright just keep moving til' the morning light
Track Name: Ballad of The Longtime Mother
once upon a long time ago lived the long time mother
she would give and she would take life spread from one to another
living in dark valleys and streams she is always near you
ask her for whatever you need, and she will provide

all along all along all along all along

even as the weight of the world seems to move right through you
open to the pressure and find what you're looking for
we were never suited for what they are after darlin'
open to your own source of light, it is all you need now

in the empty spaces love is on the wind, love is in the air
it's all around just waiting for you to let it in forever and again
there's a love that's waiting, feel it on the wind feel it in the air
it's all around this moment, learn to receive all that you see

it's not enough it's not enough it's not enough it's not enough

there's a love that's waiting, feel it on the wind feel it in the air
it's all around this moment, learn to receive all that you see
in the empty spaces love is on the wind love is in the air
it's all around this moment for us to let it in forever and again

it's not enough it's not enough

even as the weight of the world seems to move right through you
open to the pressure and find what you're looking for
once upon a long time ago lived the longtime mother
she would give and she would take life all along

all along all along all along all along
Track Name: Skeleton Woman Blues
if those storm clouds roll I don't mind
if those storm clouds roll I don't mind
if that rain starts falling I'll just take my good time

if the ground does shake I don't mind
if the ground does shake I don't mind
if that earth starts moving, I'll just take my good time

if death woman speaks I don't mind
if death woman speaks I don't mind
if I see her comin' I'll just take my good time

skeleton woman I'll make you my friend
