about

halie and the moon's luminous debut EP release, "Blue Transmissions: vol. 1" includes 4 original songs: "the story (never told)", "Winter", "Breathe", and "Into the World", a collection that traverses themes of dreamscapes, love, mystery, and celestial images. Each song is brought to life by lush vocals wrapped in the warmth of cello and acoustic guitar, lifted by lyrical and powerful rhythms, building texture-rich layers and stripping them away to create worlds within worlds of sound.

Track Name: the story (never told)
the story (never told)

I’m the girl outside your window painted blue
who holds the shadows, waves goodbye, and shelters you,
counts the leaves falling from your windowpane
and rains forever ‘til it comes ’round back again.
You’re the boy that drops me down and picks me up,
breaks the mirrors in the dark and calls it luck,
lifts a hand to give the night a little something else
and measures mornings with the light inside himself.

Well it’s high time that we stumbled to the city,
don’t need a dime if we shine up all our pennies.
A highwire and an umbrella make a new day,
somersaulting to the faces on the subway...

I’m the girl inside the book upon your shelf
with all the mirrors, poetry inside herself,
a house of candles in the shadows burning bright
asking you to shed your skin and come inside.
You’re the boy that hears the wind across the town,
weaves all of his words to turn the world around,
stretches out his days like a canvas blue -
holds it to the sky to see the light shine through.

Well it’s high time that we painted up the city,
don’t need a dime if we shine up all our pennies.
A highwire and an umbrella make a new day,
somersaulting to the faces on the subway.
We write the songs we know we can believe in,
we breathe them, hold and free them,
‘cause baby, that’s the only way that we know
to send the sun shining through the stereo...

Because you tattooed your kisses in my mind,
the only true-blue valentine... and you know
it cannot be denied that you’ve haunted my room
with the hazel in your eyes...

We’re the story that the papers never told
about the things we couldn’t buy and never sold,
we’re the honey dancing in the amber light
of frozen dreams and Sunday schemes and second sight.

Well it’s high time that we painted up the city,
don’t need a dime if we shine up all our pennies.
A highwire and an umbrella make a new day
somersaulting to the faces on the subway.
We write the songs we know we can believe in,
we breathe them, hold and free them,
‘cause baby, that’s the only way that we know
to send the sun shining through the stereo.
Track Name: Winter
Love, won’t you sing a lullaby?
White, naked as the winter snow...
Hey, can we give another try?
It’s time to make our way home.

It’s time to be alone, time to hide away now
Time to keep a love alight inside - every love alight...

Love, can we find the other side
of this night, woven with a silver hope?
Stars falling with the morning light...
It’s time to make our way home.

It’s time to be alone, time to hide away now
Time to keep a love alight inside - every love alight...

Slowly, slowly, ever marching deeper into night
(it’s time to be alone, time to hide away now)
Slowly, slowly, ever arching closer to the light
(time to keep a love alight inside)
Every love alight.
Track Name: Breathe
Breathe

Head held to the side, you see him
Another wayward astronaut
Smiling up through a paper cup
Your fingers trace the smile, you see him
Ripple dirty ponds in a muddy haze
Check the high time for another day
The skin you fall in to
Waving out the thunder clapping through
A weary sky

Breathe now, baby
Let the constellations take you
And all and all the everything
Is hanging on an ether swing
Sink now baby
Let the holy water bathe you
And all and all the everything is hanging

Within you, begin you
What you gonna win
From spinning stars into your eyes?
Begin you, within you
All you’ve got to know
Is trace the glow

Breathe now, baby
Let the constellations take you
And all and all the everything
Is hanging on an ether swing
Sink now baby
Let the holy water bathe you
And all and all the everything is hanging

Don’t you feel like a homeless balloon
In someone else’s song?
And you play along
Can’t you sing like a homeless balloon
in someone else’s song?
Play

Breathe now, and all and all the everything
Sink now, and all and all the everything is hanging

Breathe now, baby
Let the constellations take you
And all and all the everything
Is hanging on an ether swing
Sink now baby
Let the holy water bathe you
And all and all the everything is hanging
Track Name: Into the World
He spoke you into the world
on the edge of his tongue, you see...
he was a crestfallen tapestry
And the silk of you
wove something true
when you came over the hill,
tattooed in your summer dress,
and he stumbled to profess...
‘cause sometimes the words,
they escape us
when the light
comes to save us.

And You...
You...

He wrote you into the blue
on the edges of the sky, you see... pulled treasure from a deep green sea, and the world held you
like something true
when you rose over the hill,
a story from a stolen dream,
dancing moonlight on the tapestry... but could he believe
in something so true?
Only light,
light can escape through.

And You...
You...
You...
You...

He spoke you
into the world.
