Edna's Song

from by Ange Takats



The moon is playing peek-a-boo
Behind the clouds in the darkening blue
And I am thinking about you
Though you’re not here with me now
I still remember how
Life used to feel with you beside me

I’ve got family all around
But I still miss the sound
Of your slippers shuffling on the kitchen floor
And Seven years have gone by
Since the night that you died
But I still wait, expecting to see your face

My lovely, my darling, my dear
Thanks for all those tender years
I’m lucky you’ve left me with so many happy memories
My sweetheart, my true love
I know that this full moon above
Is your way of leaving the light on for me

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).
