about

The single Aurora was written by Australian artist Marisa Yeaman, to accompany an art exhibition at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
Inspired by the painting 'Lake Keitele' by Finnish painter Akseli Gallen-Kallela, for the Exhibition 'Dreams of Nature - Symbolism from Van Gogh to Kandinsky'.
Recorded at Studio 'Wild Verband' in The Netherlands, which is owned by respected Dutch guitarist BJ Baartmans. BJ also added some beautiful playing to the track. A creative osmosis evolving from paint, to words to sound.

lyrics

AURORA

Aurora burns like the fire in my belly
the dawn comes hard across the vacant sky
I know somewhere else the world is turning
I see the future flashing in my eyes
All these reflections of the places I have been to
All these faces with their widened eyes
How do you know the destination 'till you get there
Like a magnet that pulls and it don't know why

It's a quiet truth this drawing inside you
It's not the proof of riches seen
Curse or a gift it comes to own you
Like the rambling sewn beneath your skin

So let the seasons come and fall to ruin
Let the nighttime sun light the sky
I will listen to the leaves as they are falling
Watch the ripples cross this lake - fade and die
I follow this quest to the edge of the horizon
In solitude it asks me why
I don't know if I'll ever get to where I'm going
It's the only way I know to live my life

It's a quiet truth this drawing inside you
It's not the proof of riches seen
Curse or a gift it comes to own you
Like the rambling sewn beneath your skin

The nighttime wind sings a tune - so lonely
The purest song you'll ever know
And the words they are heard by you only
Through your veins they will flow

It's a quiet truth this drawing inside you
It's not the proof of riches seen
Curse or a gift it comes to own you
Like the rambling sewn beneath your skin
Like the rambling beneath your skin

Aurora burns like the fire in my belly
The dawn comes hard across the vacant sky…
