about

Shirah does not rush things. Her songs are precious and rare, deserving of the time and care it has taken to cultivate her first EP, Dreamglow. Recorded and produced by Amber in the spare bedroom of her home, these songs are somehow both delicate and massive. Lush arrangements and colossal dynamic shifts are the vessel for incredibly thoughtful, personal, and helpful lyrics. It can be hard to look inward, but Amber Shirah is here to help walk you through it with song.

Track Name: Mountain Laurel
You drag your tired feet
Across the wooden floor
Watering your sad
Wilted green house plants

Climbing in bed
In the afternoon
Sleeping through time
You blame your broken dad

Do you remember when
The mountain laurel
Made the air smell sweet
It was a dreamglow
Shifting colors
Blue green and yellow
Though it felt strange
You embraced the change

It won’t always be this way
One day you’ll turn around
I’ll never leave you
I am a solid ground

Do you remember when
The mountain laurel
Made the air smell sweet
It was a dreamglow
Shifting colors
Blue green and yellow
Though it felt strange
You embraced the change
Track Name: Crescent Moon
You are a thin crescent moon
I, the earth’s shadow
Keeping me from seeing
All of you
All of you

I am a mirror dimly lit
Pining for purpose
Wearing myself thin
Wanting more
Wanting more

You shine so pure
Gracious dove
Giving to who lacks thereof
Oh how I need
Oh how I need

My love is pale
You shine right through
The veil I’ve worn
Is torn in two
Track Name: White Water
When I’m kicking and screaming
And digging my feet in
Gritting my teeth and pushing you away

You know me
You know me
You know me
Better than anyone else

I can run and disappear
Like mirages in the desert
An abandoned adobe house
Cactus arms dry and weathered
Everything I think
And everything I thought
Tends to rot
Tends to rot

You know me
You know me
You know me
Better than anyone else

When I was young
The river caught my eye
With it’s emerald hands
It drew me in

I got lost
I got lost
I got lost
I got lost

White waters move quickly
Oh father come get me
White waters move quickly
Oh father come get me
White waters move quickly
Oh father come get me
I get lost all the time
White waters move quickly
Oh father come get me
I get lost all the time
Track Name: Sun Skin
I wanna dance
I wanna dance
I wanna know what it feels like
To be alive in my own skin
To feel my own heart beatin

The shape of hands were made for holding
And it’s so hard to let things go
It’s a game of push and pull
I go left, you go right

I’ve been wondering
What it’s like
To be innocent again

You light the fire
Warm like the sun on my skin
Isn’t it nice
Returning in to begin
Dizzy with light
Twirling and shaking our limbs
