JennyDinva With each new album, I always declare it to be my favorite and then the next comes out and I say it again. Their talent on strings is outstanding with a true "wow" factor. I can't name a favorite track because they're all so great, each one it's own little gem. Wonderful voices and instrumentals where the instruments seem to actually have voices magically singing to each other, but all show off this wonderful talent They never cease to amaze me with their originality of sound. You'll love it. Favorite track: Finn MacCool Crosses The Rocky Mountains.

Carried Away 03:29
Carried Away by Enion Pelta-Tiller Carried away, carried away It’s time we got carried away To the hills where the blackbird flies Where the stones have ears and the sky has eyes Running ahead, running behind Running with my eyes so I will find The dawn of the wind and begin again And be borne out of this human skin But you can bring me back, I’m outside over there Forget me not, so I won’t disappear Bring me back, oh, sing me down Stolen away, stolen away In the morning of the world I stole away Were you the one to come along? The mountains and the streams are crying Please have no fear of dying Find your love and bring it on home Don’t forget where you belong Carried away, carried away This time we got carried away To the hills where the blackbird flies Where the stones have ears and the sky has eyes But you can bring me back, I’m outside over there Forget me not, so I won’t disappear Bring me back, oh, sing me down

POLyAmOrOUs PolLy AnN by David Tiller When I was 23 years old, I was ready to win the world, I swore off the distractions of love, For my art I took an oath Then she came into the party, On the arm of an old old friend, With a smile as grand as the canyon, And eyes that could not pretend I went weak in the knees, Maybe weaker in the mind, I could not look away from her, I could not leave her behind So I stole her away into the night, And onto Avignon, We busked the streets of Paris, And made love unto the dawn Oh Polly Ann, Like heated honey in my hands, Drips through my fingers into the sands Oh Polly Ann, Those who want to hold her down will not hold her again, My polyamorous Polly Ann And when I was ready to propose, Another would be on his knee, Not a lad could look away from her, Nor could she refuse to please She said don't wait up for me man, this could take a while, But I'll be back as sure as I am Bearing your first child Oh Polly Ann, Like heated honey in my hands, Drips through my fingers into the sands Oh Polly Ann, Those who want to hold her down will not hold her again, My polyamorous Polly Ann She was as delicate as a Lily, And innocent as a child, She'd follow her heart to the ends of the earth If a gentleman was beguiled And when she returned to me, My child was already 10, she had three others on her back, Each one from a different friend Oh, Polly Ann I can't deny my pain, Each time you walk out that door again, Oh Polly Ann, Like heated honey in my hands, Drips through my fingers into the sands Oh Polly Ann, Those who want to hold her down will not hold her again, My polyamorous Polly Ann My polyamorous Polly Ann My polyamorous Polly Ann

Athena 05:01
Athena by Enion Pelta-TIller The thread of a life, spun short, spun long, Is bound by the others in tension Not only human life, spun short, spun long, But the lives of everything that breathes vibration A massive tapestry, weave in, weave out, You and I and all of creation Every strand of life, weave in, weave out, Deeply entwined and embracing Oh Athena, wisdom while you weave, please Don’t leave me tangled up inside Oh Athena, give me room to breathe Please illuminate the shadows of the night I can see her now, pull tight, repeat, Her hands birthing a tale in steady rhythm A few incandescent strands, pull tight, release Giving heart to the art of her creation A woman and a man, flow in, cry out In the keeping of the ancient sacred rhythm Dolphins singing starry dreams, flow in, cry out, To the waiting arms of a dusky vision Oh Athena, wisdom while you weave, please Don’t leave me tangled up inside Oh Athena, give me room to breathe Please illuminate the shadows of the night Centuries pass by, breathe in, breathe out And the stories that she weaves, they just get richer Til finally she sees, breathe in, release That all the tales that she’s told are strung together Love and death are sure release, let go, be free But they still have a place in the weaving Perfect rhythm, light shines through, let go, be free And you’ll see the single thread that is cleaving Oh Athena, wisdom while you weave, please Don’t leave me tangled up inside Oh Athena, give me room to breathe Please illuminate the shadows of the night Oh Athena, wisdom while you weave, please Don’t leave me tangled up inside Oh Athena, give me room to breathe Shine a light on what I cannot see Oh Athena, wisdom while you weave, please Don’t leave me tangled up inside Oh Athena, give me room to breathe Please illuminate the shadows…

I Could Really Use You Now by David Tiller You say you have friends that never look Out the corners of their cozy nook Drowned fly coffee and a fuzzy book to adorn them Broken flowers in the midnight sun Sneaking out or on the run You never told me that you wanted one to use you And you say if you want me You could use me, you could use me any which way you see If you want me you could use me please use me Because I could really use you now You know your story is in the news The one politicians like to use To color up their death-like hues but you don't mind You use the light shine as bright as a squirming silverfish his plight To get released into the night and take on a few of your own And you say if you want me You could use me, you could use me any which way you see If you want me you could use me please use me Because I could really use you now In returns Madame Bovary Laying down clockwise for a cup of tea She knows I can't wait to see her flower That she brought me back from a trip to Spain She's good to me and I can't complain and that's all that ever really matters And she says if you want me You could use me you could use me any which way you see If you want me you could use me please use me Because I could really use you now If you want me You could use me you could use me any which way you see If you want me you could use me please use me Because I could really use you now I could really use you now I could really use you now

Don't Go 05:27
Don’t Go by Enion Pelta-TIller Don’t go looking for prophecy It will all unfold as it should be Don’t go listening to sacrifice The fuller the frill the finer the lace It is written in the stars to be read Not in the cards but in your head Not on your hands but in your heart Each cell and sun's a work of art Each cell and sun's a work of art I wasn’t looking for what I found So I buried it beneath the cold cold ground A seed that’s planted will want to grow I hope it waits beyond the snow It is written in the stars to be read Not in the cards but in your head Not on your hands but in your heart Each cell and sun's a work of art Each cell and sun's a work of art we share a dance we share a dream A love a lust a sigh a scream A tear a child a world a sky Our hands a song and you and I The world is fertile full and free I plant these seeds for life not me We’ll taste the fruit and dream strange dreams And come awake the stars to see It is written in the stars to be read Not in the cards but in your head Not on your hands but in your heart Each cell and sun's a work of art Each cell and sun's a work of art Each cell and sun's a work of art Each cell and sun's a work of art

Sun And Rain 03:45
Sun and Rain by David Tiller As summer falls away from the season and your endings are endlessly getting nearer As desire burns and sweetens into treason And ties our hands and cries to persevere. Because you may never never know When love can stand up stronger Don't try so hard and I won't get harder Be the mothers sons and daughters to bring us back to soil Where the sun and rain it can fall We’ve played the game and hid it from the evenings Adrenaline rush as we take flight Let's cut the sails and glide down into safer harbor And lay our selves down upon this gentle night You bare the scars hidden upon your body Like something sweet that's fallen from a tree You've risen up from hat fallen folly And mended your wounded knees As summer falls away from the season And our skins fade back to white Don't let the autumn leaves leave without reasons To turn us back to soil from the light Because you may never never know When love can stand up stronger Don't try so hard and I won't get harder Be the mothers sons and daughters to bring us back to soil Where the sun and rain it can fall

Fading Mystery by Enion Pelta-TIller You’re a fading mystery In my history like the bones in the earth And I wonder what’s the meaning, what’s the worth To you now Remember walking through the redwood trees The light in your eyes set fire to the breeze Oh I was captured and never released Til you were gone And you, you were ill at ease In a world where passion’s a slow death Sometimes I think I can sense your breath On the wind Remember we devoured city lights Starved for love and finding darkness in the bright Wish I’d had a little more sense of right For you And you, now unknown as the night Do you burn in the brightness of the stars Will I find you if I look that far
