In Miwa Gemini's music we hear elements as disparate as the intense atmospheres of The Doors, Chris Garneau's pop experiments, Tom Waits' decadent sonic carnival. Miwa's delicate, magical soprano defies all comparisons contributing to a sound that's quite unique in today's overcrowded music scene.

Biography

Singer-songwriter Miwa Gemini can take your breath away. Her single Goodnight Trail just stopped this bloggers day dead in its tracks.Whatever the roots and reasons Goodnight Trail carries you away to a storybook world and gives you a very real sinking feeling at the same time. Its a neat trick that makes her forthcoming third album TheFantastic Lies of Grizzly Rose one to watch for.

Lyrics

Between the Seasons

Written By: Miwa Gemini

I'm too big, too small
Too quiet, too loud
Too strong, too fragile
Too heavy and too light

Stuck between the seasons
I want to be me but yet matter somehow
Stuck between the seasons
Please let me trade of my arrogance for humility

I'm too strange, too normal
Could I have all that I dream of
I can't help it if I remain
Between the frames of the ocean

Stuck between the seasons
I want to be me but yet matter somehow
Stuck between the seasons
Please let me trade off my arrogance for humility
Stuck between the seasons
I want to be me but yet matter somehow
Stuck between the seasons
Please let me be happy for who I am

My heart aches of the news of far land and near
But my lips hum the songs of caterpillars in the wind

Stuck between the seasons
I want to be me but yet matter somehow
Stuck between the seasons
Please let me be happy
Stuck between the seasons
I want to be me but yet matter somehow
Stuck between the season
Please let me fulfill my story

The Other Half of Me

Written By: Miwa Gemini

The Other Half of Me

I start singing when the first glass of wine hits me
Sitting alone with my thoughts flickering, now bright...now bright
And this is my quiet night
Since you're not here, it's only half of me

Wondering when you are coming home
I'm missing you
Will there be a trace of whiskey when you come through the door?
And this is my quiet night
Since you're not here, it's only half of me

My strawberry lips and midnight eyes
Time and time again, I will ask you if I'm beautiful
Will you say?
I'm shameless when it comes to you
I'm shameless when it comes to you

Poetry in a glass of wine
Drunk with that heart that is mine
Poetry in a glass of wine
Now it's your turn, please say the line

And this is my quiet night
Since you're not here, it's only half of me

Matchbox House Blues

Written By: Miwa Gemini

Matchbox House Blues

Let's build a house in a matchbox
Let's build a house in a matchbox
Let's build a house in a matchbox
We'll call it our home

Let's weave a dream out of silver yarn
Let's weave a dream out of silver yarn
Let's weave a dream out of silver yarn
We'll call it our cocoon

Then, let's make music love in a brand new cowboy boot
Let's make music love in a brand new cowboy boot
We will stomp on its heel and dance on it's silver buckle
singing as loud as we can

When you believe in me, my heart flies up in an air balloon
When I believe in you, you make every moon blue moon

Let's go on a trip in my favorite umbrella
The one that my mother painted flowers on
We will catch a wind tunnel at the Astor Place
We'll sail off Hudon River

When you believe in me, my heart flies up in an air balloon
When I believe in you, you make every moon blue moon

Let's build a house in a matchbox
Let's build a house in a matchbox
Let's build a house in a matchbox
We'll call it our home
And we'll dream in our cocoon
And we'll call this world our own

Goodnight Trail

Written By: Miwa Gemini

Goodnight Trail

Won't you come meet me at the Goodnight Trail
Where the moon meets somewhere east and west
See how my shadow's becoming less frail
Only we could meet at the Goodnight Trail

Heading up north to Memphis Tennessee
I wonder if my cat still remembers my name
I don't want to be arrogant but
I keep fading the Texas Sun

Won't you come meet me at the Goodnight Trail
Where the moon meets somewhere east and west
See how my shadow's becoming less frail
Only we could meet at the Goodnight Trail

Crazy the night when I wait for the call
Crazy the night when I wait for the call

Do I smell of lavender?
I look at the number to see if I remember
I wish I was back at the old Cellar
Where the voices and the laughters familiar

Won't you come meet me at the Goodnight Trail
I know I'm far away from you
But we could always meet at the Goodnight Trail
Where the moon meets somewhere east and west

Crazy the night when I wait for the call
To hear the voice of the one who misses me

Sing the song to the bride to be
Sing the song to the one who miss me
The hollow oak tree singing opera
The wind chime singing tenderly

Will you come and meet me at the Goodnight Trial
I know I'm far away from you
But we could always meet at the Goodnight Trail
Where the moon meets somewhere east and west

Won't you come meet me at the Goodnight Trail
Where the moon meets somewhere east and west
See how my shadow's becoming less frail
Only we could meet at the Goodnight Trail
