Beautiful Teeth Beautiful teeth like wolves’ your smile makes the rabbits run All hail the moon your neck, it’s light on the water on the water on the water Your broad chest and the space between your breasts softly, the wolves are sleeping Your broad chest and the space between your breasts softly, the wolves are sleeping Beautiful teeth like wolves’ Your smile makes the rabbits run All hail the moon Your neck, it’s light on the water on the water on the water

2.I Can’t See You I can’t see you, I’m not going tonight Oh run away run away run away run away And hide Oh run away run away run away with me tonight I can’t see you, I’m not going tonight Oh run away run away run away run away And hide Oh run away run away run away with me tonight I know a place where we can go we both know very well I know the dark place that we both do go we both know very well I can’t see you, I’m not going tonight Oh run away run away run away And hide Oh run away run away run away with me tonight Lean a little closer to me dear I can almost breathe when you are near Lean a little closer to me dear I can almost breathe you in

Sea Change 02:32
3. Sea Change Helena walks the city streets and her playlist guides her feet from Neptune to the beach Serve them coffee, bring them tea thinking of nothing, and everything nothing of him can now remain but doth suffer a sea change Sea change sea change sea change From where you thought you’d be Nothing is fixed in stone see how below here how they roll roll the bones and now the tide bring you back to where you felt alive Sea change sea change sea change

Tarot Card 04:20
4.Tarot Card This is a new day and I tuck your tarot card away Three of Wands , you said it was arbitrary didn’t mean anything but you said a lot of things Speaking in riddles so no one could understand you making complicated what was really so easy I’ll tell you your future I’ll tell you your future I’ll tell you your future but it’s far too lonely This is a new day and I tuck your tarot card away This is a new day, a new day Like a bird from the snare of the fowler Like a beast from the hand of the hunter Like a bird from the snare of the fowler Free yourself

Fair Warning 03:43
5.Fair Warning If I sing my song through the trees you might hear me, fair warning Little lonesome love, it has been awhile I know Don’t you know the most beautiful things that crawl or fly are full of poison I have eyes on my back so it seems I am watching Her Monarch wings are lovely and bright so you know, she won’t taste nice He sings his song through the trees and it seems he is lonely Don’t you know the most beautiful things give fair warning they are full of poison Don’t you know the most beautiful things give fair warning Don’t you know the most beautiful things give fair warning they are full of poison

November Man 02:39
7.November Man November man, with your coat of black flap your wings against the ghost grey sky Sing your song of November naked trees and the promise of ice overnight There’s no warm fire for you, or me Meet me there grey as a ghost the sky where you and I fly by Each and the other black coats and wings Hear my song of November You’ll never know you’ll never know you’ll never know my name You’ll never know you’ll never know you’ll never know my name

Katie Cruel 02:48
9.
9.Elemental Child Elemental child, made up of sun and wind I see the tree of you whipped and bend all in an instant then your face turns pensive and sad ‘til it picks up again, like the wind Elemental child tears fall to earth in rain spring from the ground again changed and unchanging Constantly blustering curses and philosophy it is a tempest and I I am a kite

Go Your Way 04:00
Check out Anne Briggs, she is wondrous
11.
11. I Remember Everything Awaken in the morning in the still and solitary light to stand beside your shadow from a dream I had last night You return and talk to me we’re walking like we used to do How can I shake you off this way? I remember everything How wrong can one woman be or how lost and how lonely Tell me you don’t feel any pain I remember everything Well, I miss the thoughts that I used to think and you walking beside me Say you were never my friend I remember everything

12. Our Lady of the Highway Oh , Our Lady of the Highway won’t you lend me some Grace I can’t close my eyes or I’ll see his pretty face I’d get drunk on some whiskey but I can’t stand the taste Oh Our Lady of the Highway Take me far away from here Oh , Our Lady of the Highway Won’t you ease my head He lay down the sunset when he lay back in that bed and oh my skies my skies went gold, pink and red Farewell is what I have left now all I have left is farewell Farewell Oh , Our Lady of the Highway won’t you lend me some Grace I can’t close my eyes or I’ll see his pretty face, such a pretty face I get drunk on some whiskey but I can’t stand the taste Oh Our Lady of the Highway Take me far away from here

"Somehow she seems to come from somewhere else. Travelled through the clouds or gone through the stones. Her music is neither spooky nor eerie, but rather surrounded by a kind of positive mysticism and a familiar strangeness, radiating charm and a generous flair."- Guteshoerenistwichtig
(Austria)

"Allysen Callery has five albums and three Ep to her credit, but this magnificent "Ghost Folk" is her artistic peak, the record of her consecration, if anyone still has doubts about her artistic qualities. It is pure poetry, an enchantment from the first to the twelfth song, then there is that cover where ours seems to want to turn the light on itself, as if to pray that her proposal deserves to be taken into strong consideration"-Distorsioni (Italy)
