lyrics

May you sleep well and be kept warm
May shelter sustain you, to sleep through the storm

Pressures face off, and leave us bruised
But dare not take us or make us choose

Put your cows away and lock the chicken coup
Mortals must remain not altered or skewed

May you wake up feeling safe and unharmed
Watching the rain in the embrace of your lover’s arms

You were out late carrying on
It never dawned on you to sleep through the storm

And then you woke up with a drumbeat to your head
Watching the lighting strike the tree in the window next to your bed

And In the morning after the colors changed
You went see what got damaged and what remained

Your farmhand saved you, she put everything away
Putting the tractor in the barn and putting trouble in the hay

Put your cows away and lock the chicken coup
Mortals must remain not altered or skewed

May you wake up feeling safe and unharmed
Watching the rain in the embrace of your lover’s arms

about

Jane Kilgour & The Trouts Northampton, Massachusetts

We are The Trouts, a 4-piece acoustic band from Western Massachusetts. We formed in the woods of Hampshire college in 2012 and have been friends ever since. A stand-up bass, a guitar, a mandolin, and a vocalist came together to write songs and play them at house shows, farmers markets, streets, and a few barns. We use the string band as a vehicle to share our indie and soul inspired folk music. ... more
