Sarah Jane Wells Brilliant lyrics, soulful singing, powerful instrumentation, and evocative lyrics.

Each of these tracks have been released previously, but the new recordings are even better than what has come before.

The synth on the title track puts this '80s kid in a state of euphoric nostalgia, while the lyrics and driving beat pull me forward into the 21st century.

Seriously, just listen (to any and all of what's posted here) and you'll find a lot to like. Favorite track: Call Down the Light.

Track Name: Missing
Like a face up on the screen
Or a voice that's absent from the scene
A hand that's lost more than it's found
You're missing

Like an hour stuck between
Or a crime of passion turned routine
Reaction when the heart is bound
You're missing

It's always after midnight when you're gone
It's always after midnight when you're gone

An affair that won't convene
Or a haunting on the public green
A bullet hole without a sound
You're missing

Like an ending unforeseen
I swear this isn't what it seems
A breath of air when I'm nearly drowned
You're missing

It's always after midnight when you're gone
It's always after midnight when you're gone
It's always after midnight when you're gone
It's always after midnight when you're gone
Track Name: Call Down the Light
Again let the ritual begin
The one that fills the space between the moments of the day
And quiets all the ghosts that haunt my wake
And glimmer in my eyes

Now bring the fire again
And burn away the night and tears that we haven't learned to cry
Our faces bathed in the broken city light
At last we're in our time

Call down the sky for me
Call down the light for me

Descend to the darkness again
And let the demons ride to where forever meets the tide
The pieces of what was lost and left behind
Become the sacrifice

Call down the sky for me
Call down the light for me
Call down the sky for me
Call down the light for me

Strung out on desire live to hear the sound
Cutting on a wire just to make the static drown
Reeling as the desperation salts the ground
A shattered crown, a shattered crown

Suffer for a cause that you just can't reveal
Give away your love so that you'll have to steal
Crawling to the finish just to spin the wheel
And seal the deal, and seal the deal

Call down the sky for me
Call down the light for me
Call down the sky for me
Call down the light for me

Call down the sky for me
Call down the light for me
Call down the sky for me
Call down the light for me
Track Name: Requiem
This one goes out to those who've gone before
Who left us through one of many different doors
Who turned around and slowly walked away
Or fell from us into their soft awaiting graves

This one goes out to what was left behind
To those we never loved, and those we could not find
To those we count among the dead through all the bloody years
To everything we locked inside in misery and fear

This is your requiem
This is your requiem
This is your requiem
This is your requiem

And this one goes out to the words we never said
To all the things that we've betrayed and all the times we've bled
To every time we almost took our lives to end the pain
For every time we dragged ourselves back to our feet again

And this one goes out to finally letting go
To making it through the night to see the east in glow
To burying the past in the ground where it belongs
To breaking through to find out that you've been here all along

This is your requiem
This is your requiem
This is your requiem
This is your requiem

And this one is for yesterday
And this one is for yesterday
And this one is for yesterday
And this one is for yesterday

In time this all will fade
In time this all will fade
In time this all will fade
In time this all will fade

This is your requiem
This is your requiem
This is your requiem
This is your requiem
