about

"She had a habit of joking about her own death, and through her broken English she would say that when she died she was going to ‘the other moon’."

"The Other Moon" sees Sara May, the artistic force behind Falcon Jane, paying tribute to the loss of her Nonna, her grandmother. Although the two women were from different generations, and spoke two different languages, they understood each other in a way deeper than words.

In "The Other Moon", May explores not only that terrible loss, but also the intimate experience in getting to know yourself again afterwards, highlighting the banal but beautiful ebb and flow of our every day. The new single is an investigation into what it means to be alive and the often painful experience of the ordinary. As someone who describes herself as “emotionally guarded,” Falcon Jane is May outstretched, breaking through the introspective wall and inviting us in on the experiment.

lyrics

My heart’s got a big hole in it
There’s no telling what’s gonna open it
All the things I wish I could’ve said
Seems like we’re letting you get away without them

Our love’s got a black cloud over it

Don’t wanna let you go up into it
Take your pieces of who I am

Leave me with the ones that I could understand

The Other Moon you say you’re going to
And I don’t deserve to even miss you
All my fear, all my regret
Is nothing compared to what she had left

It came on like a dream
But I’m still screaming
Screaming
I’m still screaming

What if I’m not ready to love
What if I’m not ready to move on
What if I don’t know how to give it up
All this time I’ve been living like I’m lost
All this time I’ve been living like I’m lost

What if I’m not ready to love
What if I’m not ready to move on
What if I don’t know how to give it up
All this time I’ve been living like I’m lost
All this time I’ve been living like I’m lost
