about

"Live at the Mary Miller" is The Moonlit Wild's first album, a 3-song EP recorded live in Lafayette, Colorado's beautiful Mary Miller Theater, a 100-year-old church turned performance space. Videos for all 3 songs were filmed and recorded by Chris Wiest of Kettle Whistle Media (and member of Woodbelly, winners of 2018 Telluride Bluegrass Festival). The result is a tapestry of Americana and folk, weaving together life's joy and pain and the beauty of an old fashioned road trip.

Track Name: In the Company of Stars
You and me on a warm summer night
Listen to the airplanes fly
Smell the leaves burning beyond
This must be where we belong
This must be where we belong

I take a drink and I look at you
We talk about the things that we've been through
What a lovely one you are
In the company of stars
In the company of stars

You're my flower in the springtime
You're my singer of songs
Did we fly so high just to fall so far
Just to pick up the pieces and move on

And our little world spins round and round
And emptiness abounds
Next to this, we're meaningless
But love makes us bigger than we sound
Bigger than we sound

You're my flower in the springtime
You're my dreamer of dreams
And our love was real
But it was never perfect
Like a picture in a magazine

And the air cuts through us like a knife
Takes away the strife in our lives
What we feel is who we are
In the company of stars
In the company of stars

Now I'm walking on the train tracks
Oh I'm trying to find a way back
I didn't come this far just to turn back now
Just to quit on you and go home
Track Name: Road Trip
A roadside motel with a neon sign
Inside the TVs are black and white
And the highway sings a lonesome song
About people who are going, going, gone

We're on a road trip, drive across the country
Stop in every small town, see what we see
Onto the byway, into the valley
Over the mountains, down to the city

Inside a truck stop where the tired wait
For a shower and a hot plate
And in the place a hundred years ago
Arapahoe hunted buffalo

Open window road never ending
Hand floating mind pretending
And the thoughts in your heart that you've been keeping
Set free while the others in the car are sleeping

I'm flying higher than I ever did before
But still the demons waiting at my front door
When I'm driving, let it all slip away
Into the red, the red sun
Save it for another day

I'm on a road trip drive across the country
Stop in every small town see what we see
Onto the byway into the valley
Over the mountains down to the city
Track Name: When the Bright Line Fades
You drove a borrowed truck
To the confluence of bad and luck
As there was some business that you had there

You know we start as one
A river that's flowing in the sun
And then comes a waterfall
And it separates us all

But the sky will open up
And the birds will fly
And it begins to rain
Though the sun still shines

When the world doesn't turn like you want it to
And you lie in the bed that you made
Don't give it up, don't turn it in
When the bright line starts to fade
When the bright line starts to fade

And a stranger passed you by
His whole life's story in his eyes
And he stopped to give his name
And to see that you were fine

Like water drops we are
All alone, together as we fall
And when we land we find ourselves
Back where we began

The sky will open up
And the birds will fly
And it begins to rain
Though the sun still shines

When the world doesn't turn like you want it to
And you lie in the bed that you made
Don't give it up
Don't turn it in
When the bright line starts to fade
When the bright line starts to fade
When the bright line starts to fade
When the bright line starts to fade
