Back to the Sun

from by Ange Takats



The sun is sketching spider webs, among the morning leaves
And the day’s so clear and beautiful, that it’s almost make believe
It seems to me that the grass is greener right here under my feet
And don’t it come a sweet relief

Between birth and death – what will you choose?
Will you give to those you love and let them give love back to you?
Will you understand that rosiness is often followed by blue?
And will you begin and end each day with words of gratitude?

Today I see the sad clouds, rolling on in
But tomorrow I know that the wind will blow and push them out to sea
And it seems to be that the darkness is there to teach me
Just how bright a little light can be


Oh the afternoon is not the end of the day
But just the morning waiting to find her way
Back to the sun, back to the sun

Ange Takats Australia

One of the purest voices on the Australian music scene – Ange Takats is able to coat with sugar, crush with sadness and cut through to the soul of a song.

Her second album Arva mixes Americana folk with the sounds of 1930s jazz … think Joni Mitchell meets Billie Holiday with the Andrews Sisters on backing vocals. It was recorded and produced by J. Walker (Machine Translations).
