lyrics

Seraphine I can see my house from here.
I can taste the air for tears that you swept across the city.
You were cast out, lost and lonely, I was wrecked from wasted nights.
So we formed our coalition to dive headfirst in the sky.
Like a pair of drunks on new years, we'll surrender all our cash and disappear forever into an amber flash.
We should fly off to the Outback or the Mojave before dawn.
While the sun is down your breath will keep me warm.

Still clambering to find my boots.
I'm on my way to you.
With a set of keys, and borderline blues.
And these lazy vagabond tunes.

May we ride together and go someplace, untouched by the faintest wind.
Seraphine, take flight.
The air is sharp and my tales are dull, so I'll need some more of your fiery soul.
Seraphine, let's go.

Seraphine, I can see that you are ready.
I know your scales are dusty so let's bathe in this here twilight.
No moment here is squandered, lets break before the thunder has ceased and find ourselves a southern summer.
I'll brush away your fears like you blew away my ego and arrogance, Seraphine you are my hero.
Our words are cheap and meaningless, it's time to tear them down and spend our short lives sailing out of dark abandoned towns.

Seraphine, I can feel your wings grow heavy.
I know you're getting old, but you have yet to find the treasures hidden past the blue threshold.
Please just give us one more jailbreak, to forget our futile futures.
Seraphine, we are more than just a pair of sunken losers.

Hung up and tired, betrayed by doubt.
I'm on my way to you.
With a pair of stones and nothing left to choose, but a quiet ride among moons.

May we ride together and go someplace, untouched by the faintest wind.
Seraphine, take flight.
The air is sharp and my tales are dull, so we need some more of your fiery soul.
Seraphine, let's go.

about

Jake Brooker London, UK

Inspired by artists across generations and good friends including Frankly Lost and Will Whisson, this is a solo project that represents something I have been waiting for the right time to do. That time is probably not now, but why wait any longer?

I am a modern day folk singer trying to bring "ridin' the rails" storytelling back.
