Autumnal Jeffersons Hong Kong

Originally conceived in a dusty forest cabin in Schwenksville PA, Autumnal Jeffersons is a project that has recently moved to Hong Kong. It lives under the guise of an Asian school student whose cathartic visions brings these songs to life.

As you might have heard - these are very much a work in progress.

Track Name: Charlotte
Lyrics:

Your velvet blue eyes,
your deep disguise,
Don't phase me

This could be it,
I'll tell you the truth,
the truth sometimes hurts,
you would know cause,

Charlotte, Charlotte,
Charlotte, Charlotte,

This painful fight,
Won't last tonight,
as long as I'm alive,

We could be together,
with your endeavors
taking care of my sight,

Charlotte, Charlotte,
Charlotte, Charlotte,
Charlotte, Charlotte,
Charlotte, Charlotte,

This painful fight,
Won't last tonight,
as long as I'm alive
Track Name: Down to the Shore
Lyrics:

I went down to the shore,
to ponder what was right

I went down to the sea,
to see the stars at night,

I struggled your word,
and prayed to Lord on high,

and I found solace keep,
the waves passing by

There is a whisper
so light, so light

and I found my soul
in her eyes,

but she isn't the
source of light

So, I went down to the shore,
to ponder what was right.
Track Name: Jordan River
Lyrics:

Sweet Jordan river
You flow like snow

Her red dress
on my mind

and I can't let go

Red snow
my pupils open up

Your face is the moon
My pulse will end soon

and I can't let go

Lay down

Sweet river
her face flows down
Track Name: Coathangers
Lyrics:

I warned you
not to walk towards the wolf hound

and now they ripped your skull to pieces,
but took your heart hostage

I will chase them
until they fall on their knees,

and I'll steal your heart back to me,
and we will live so happily

Our hearts will be on coathangers
swaying in our wardrobe,

This love is on our shoulders,
this love is on our shoulders,

And there you hid
among friends

With sorrowing glances,
at the sun,

I wondered if it was the
heat,

That made you so
alive to me

And so our love,
died in peace,

left on the coathangers
Track Name: It Ends Tonight
Lyrics:

There was one time,
When I thought I was gone,

And Death stared at,
at me for too long,

So I ran away,
and thought I could escape,

but death stood still,
staring at the sky

And so,
it ends tonight,

I thought I was, exempt
from all these hurts,

but death came back,
and my mind was a storm

Its been three years,
since your warm embrace

I need it now,
to meet his blameless face

And so,
it ends tonight.
