Feeling 04:32
I have got a feeling I have got a feeling I have got a feeling about you I know that you’re leaving I know that you’re leaving without any warning Doesn’t make me sad Doesn’t make me angry Doesn’t make me sad Well, maybe just a little bit sad I have dug an ocean Walked upon its floor I have asked the moonbeams to pull you ashore Could have dug a river Could have dug a stream Should have dug a river Should have dug a stream Doesn’t make me sad Doesn’t make me angry Doesn’t make me sad Well, maybe just a little bit sad

Went down an old road tonight Followed the worn path tonight Went down an old road tonight No part of me ever dies I could never take you there I could never take you there Not even in a hundred years No part of me ever dies No part of me ever dies And I’ll never be small enough To be safe in your arms Went down an old road tonight Followed the worn path tonight Went down an old road tonight No part of me ever dies

Go in the morning To the highest place that you can find And walk around

The inside, the outside And the divide Come back to me Tell me about it The inside, the outside And the divide Tell me your worries Spare me the pain An impossible task The inside, the outside And the divide

I’ll buy you lunch someday I’ll buy you lunch someday I’ll buy you lunch someday Just don’t give your life away The littlest bumblebee Gargantual manatee I’ll hold them both close to me Just don’t give your life away I’ll buy you lunch someday I’ll buy you lunch someday I’ll buy you lunch someday Just don’t give your life away We’re all inside playing cards The kids play out in the yard They’ll dig through the dirt to clay Just don’t give your life away I’ll buy you lunch someday I’ll buy you lunch someday I’ll buy you lunch someday Just don’t give your life away

Best I Can 02:08
I have loved you best I can Though I left you many times Now our house is just a field Maybe we can go Make a new home From some of the same stuff we kept Mixed with newness Family I have loved you best I can Every time you’d run away Led me to the river’s edge Underneath the bridge Breathing, darkness And something I never could name Still I want to Still I want to write it down Still I want to understand How to make the most of the saddest parts of us Wasting nothing Our ancestors’ lives on the farm Wasting nothing

Oh Who 04:36
Oh, who can be mine? There has never been a clearer path to you To sideways baseball cap and plastic jewels
8.
Snowshoe 04:43
Snowshoe walking Sky stacked full of suggestions And numerous questions Ah, ah You’ve given all of your heart You’ve given all of your heart To the snow on your eyelash And your numb frozen cheeks Why shouldn’t you?
9.
When they told you the work worked that way Worked that way There was no one to tell you otherwise And you, with your eight-year-old’s ideals And your feels Well, you did not believe them No you did not believe them But you had to believe them But little deep knowing sometimes hides out Like bacteria Waiting for the right conditions Singing in your ear so very softly “I never left you and you never left me” And there has never been a clearer path to you There has never been a clearer path to you There has never been a clearer path to you To sideways baseball cap and plastic jewels

We all come in a long long line We all go in a flash of light We all come in a long long line We all go in a flash of light Ever since I was young Ever since I was young I’d forget Ever since I was young I’d forget and recall Forget and recall Forget and recall We all come in a long long line We all go in a flash of light We all come in a long long line We all go in a flash of light All of my mother’s work And all of my father’s work I recall The shoot that breaks off of the branch Has a home in the soil

about

Linaire Montreal, Québec

Songwriting project of composer, singer and multi-instrumentalist, Anna Atkinson. Uncluttered electronic beats and ethereal synths combine with incandescent strings and poetically lucid lyrics to produce music that is at once spacious and full. Like plastic antiques, the songs feel both timeless and contemporary in their exploration of presence, anxiety, curiosity, lineage and identity. ... more
