Hazy 04:13
Enshrouded Caught in a strange dream Though I was unaware I knew I was small when I looked up to see the starlight approaching I want to leave my head Completely This fleeting feeling of leaving Everything this world bequeaths Like a moon beam Why did I receive such a haunting I’ve been in a dark mood lately Trying to feel the things I once knew I want to dissappear I want to leave my head Completely This fleeting feeling of leaving Everything this world bequeaths Like a moon beam Sleepless So careless Watching moments Leave me hazy I want to disappear
2.
Cast Spells 03:12
You try to cast spells You've been whispering words to me from a poetry book The lines that you wrote / that you felt / that you took You try to cast spells You've been breathing dark magic to me When I'm singing sad songs You can't pick me up but you drag me along You trip on your words You've been opening up to me When the hymns lift you up The more that you stutter the gospel I seek

Glass House 03:55
I wonder if we ever really change I’ve been born a hundred times or more We’ve made the same mistakes ...all in a row But no one would ever know How you hurt me like you did And you never really loved me In a house made of glass and opaque walls With a howl that always haunts and passive aggressive behavior when everything’s your fault We’ve seen this place a hundred times before But no one comes around when you want I don’t wanna feel alone ...anymore No one would ever know That you left me like you did And you never really loved me In a house made of glass and opaque walls With a howl that always haunts and passive aggressive behavior when everything’s your fault ...all in a row

Vanishing 04:58
Orange glowing filaments I feel unbalanced Sleepless watching light grow through the nighttime windows I miss you when street lights search for shadows as I stagger through the hours and the images they cast Memories follow me Hallucinating I’m dizzy with these dizzy spells Alone I felt empty there The moon glows a crescent shape tonight With everything I’ve left behind I miss you when street lights search for shadows as I stagger through the hours and the images they cast
5.
Labyrinth 03:50
Finally found some silence I’ve been pacing around with this song in my head now for days The neighbors were building a treehouse for the kids in the yard where I used to play for hours dreaming I’m not sure that I’ll ever figure it out In this city things either linger or slowly fade Maybe this is nothing but a daydream I have these things in my head that I need to get out so that I can move on Maybe it’s nothing but a daydream
6.
Hummingbird 03:40
Will you sing me a song? One that passes through these hours... Through the dark, dark day... and your mortal wings Every night I lie awake and tell myself that I’m done with praying Everything that I thought was true wasn’t real Won’t you sing me a song? One that kisses like the quiet when a hummingbird feeds until the light of day fades Every night I lie awake and tell myself that I’m done with praying Everything that I thought was true wasn’t real Every morning I wake up aching and close my eyes to hold back the tears I toss and turn when I’m feeling sorry for my self
7.
Many Moons 02:50
Sneak up on me in my sleep Oh, to be so quiet For someone you love Will one day be silent The moon shines red like blood tonight Illuminating An afterlife? No spirit waiting Sneak up on me in my sleep Oh, to be so quiet There was never anything to hear Just silence The moon shines red like blood tonight Glimmering and bright Illuminating An open window waiting There’s no legacy to save Betray your feelings... I can’t hold them in my hands What separates the memories? The moon shines red like blood tonight Heavenly and bright Illuminating A golden angel waiting Irreverently
8.
Now I lay me down to sleep I pray the lord my soul to keep May angels watch me through the night and keep me safe til morning light If I should die before I wake I pray the lord my soul to take Silhouette, I saw you standing there in the lights you were laughing at the cars as they passed Every bird filled the sky Silhouette, taking flight You were fading in the clouds as they changed Silhouette, I saw you standing there Dreams appeared to be falling all around you and I Every star filled the night Silhouette, don’t you cry You’ll be fading into their light to become (Then fade away)
9.
Swan Dive 04:15
I feel everything Heavy on my shoulders Weighing empathy and all the colors I’ve been thinking about my life, thinking about time slipping Thinking about my mother and how I wish I spent more time with her This wound won’t ever clot and the ringing in my ears don’t ever seem to stop Seeing visions of you mumbling at the moon Conjuring some darkness from the shadows in your room I hide everything Heavy on my shoulders Weighing empathy and all of the colors I’ve been thinking about my life In the meantime I’ll be waiting Memories fade with dizzy spells Oh, how I miss her I always will This wound won’t ever clot and the ringing in my ears don’t ever seem to stop Seeing visions of you mumbling at the moon Conjuring some darkness from the shadows in your room
10.
She carried the sleet It slipped down her shoulders In subsequent dreams the nights getting colder She only haunts her only son Who casts the shade, who’d be the only one Exit the wounds Bloodletting alcohol That eerie room, those blurry thoughts La la la la, la la la la, la la la la, la la la la And I think of her every winter Beneath blankets of ice and snow And of all things I still remember Was this dark once dire and her heart was tired

about

© ℗ 2020 Jeremy Squires

“Many Moons is a display of creativity that showcases Jeremy Squires’ true soul as a driving-force in the musical community, finding a brightness in the darkest of times.”

- The Amp


“The result, artistically and musically speaking, is nothing short of breathtaking and awe-inspiring.

Doing it in the way that Squires does it on this ultimately positive collection of songs about depression, bipolar disorder, opioid addiction, life, and death by imbuing them with overriding compassion for his fellow human beings, earns him a spot as of one of our most expressive and essential singer-songwriters.”

- Americana Highways


“ On Many Moons, Squires continues spinning yarns from the heart, and the earth, adding a touch of electronics to an array of sonic textures.”

- YES! Weekly


“Jeremy Squires really opens up on Many Moons, and like every album before he plays what he feels creating something unique and personal.”

- Common Folk Music


“Many Moons lands well amongst the current state of things. Although the inspiration is more intimate, each of the ten-tracks covers relatable topics such as grief, loss, stress, mental illness, and change.”

- American Songwriter


“The result sees Squire’s usual dark palette expanded into dreamy territory, and even allows for a glimmer of light amidst the tales of hardship and pain.”

- Various Small Flames


“A dark, mysterious soundscape provides the background for haunting vocals on “Cast Spells” by Jeremy Squires. The song takes folk music in unexpected directions and simply must be heard to be understood.“

- Mother Church Pew
