about

This is Jenni’s debut album, a selection of 9 songs chosen from a repertoire of 20 years of singing and songwriting.

The album title, symbolic of that place from where the songs were written has become a huge source of inspiration. Let Alone on the Moon take you to your inner world where reflections on being human will take you on a journey across miles and miles of familiar yet forgotten shores. From the feminine to the masculine, this is a collection of moments for us all.

Funded through crowdfunding on Kickstarter, this album would not have been possible without;

Track Name: Love Soup
Taking time to stand back,
From what I’ve learnt to be
Lifting rocks on the sea bed
Trapped breathe runs free
Up to the surface
Expanding consciousness
With each and every burst, knowledge is released
As the quietest voice is heard.

I’m loving you, for loving me for loving you.
I’m holding you, for holding me, for holding you
This is all the courage I need, to see me through
I’m loving you, for loving me, for loving you.

Loving you, in all honesty
I’m been born again
Born again
This love has freed my soul x 2
This love

This is all the courage I need, to see me through
I’m loving you, for loving me, for loving you.

For loving you
In all honesty
Track Name: War
I turned my TV on
All I found was war
People arguing
People fighting
Each of us unique with a strength to give
What a sorry state we're in if this is what we're choosing

Can I try, just today
To stand by, who I am?

I walked around my town
Everyone was looking down
Scared to say hello, what might it bring?
And when did we all start to doubt each others hearts?
In fear it seems that we've created, threats to keep us segregated.

Can we try, just today
To stand by, who we are?
And just a step, at a time
Change might echo all across the world

When you’re feeling sad, walking past an angel
How would you know?
When you’re overcome with smiles and you want to share your love
Why hold it down?

Can you try, just today
To stand by, who you are?
Just a step, at a time
Change might echo all across the world

Each of us unique
With a strength to give
What are we fighting for
Track Name: Golden Eagle
I don't mind
Sometimes I fly
Sometimes I cry
When I feel the pain, in your eyes
I don’t mind, I don’t mind, at all

I went to Berlin
Saw the writing on the wall
I made a vow right there and then
To appreciate my freedom more

And I, don’t mind
Sometimes I cry
Sometimes I fly
When I feel the joy, in your skies
I don’t mind, at all

Now that I’m back home,
I can feel my chains again
If these are an illusion they’re
All I’ve ever known.

I don't mind
Sometimes I fly
Sometimes I cry
When I feel the pain in your eyes
I don’t mind, I don’t mind, at all

Freedom x 4

I don’t mind,
Sometimes I cry
Sometimes I fly
When I feel the joy, in your skies
I don’t mind at all.
Track Name: Child in the Sun
Resting in the fire
So much waits
In the morning drops of dew

Your roots will keep growing
With bows of silver in the rain
Rise towards the light
With all these people by your side

The soft pinks of the sunrise
Sea horses glide, from ocean to the shores
Fairies in the garden
That come out when you’re still
And oh, the chameleon
And yes, the Taj Mahal

The weather’s always changing
The power of the sun
Keep this one safe from harm
Resting in the fire
Track Name: Hold This Moment
All the colours on the shore
All the pebbles in the bay
What a lot to choose from
Some of them will have to stay

Hold this moment and take away
All the memories

You don't have to say very much
Your wisdom exceeds my years
Send me out to live my life
And the rest will come with time, I’m gonna

Hold this moment and take away
All the memories

Send me on my way x 2
Hold each moment x 2
Send me on my way x 2

To where the mountains rise up
And the clouds respond their way
Every thing is as it should be
And your words will come back to me

All the colours on the shore
All the pebbles in the bay
What a lot to choose from
Some of them will have to stay

Hold this moment
Track Name: Prophecy
Why don’t you want me
Why am I not good enough
You being you makes you happy
And me being me, does me too.

You’re talking to your ancestors
But you’re words they cannot hear
You’re going deep down, to where it’s quiet
And you don’t want to talk, anymore

I can’t be who you want me to be
But I can be everything I am.
Maybe I could lead you through this darkness
Maybe I could be the one

So raise your foot
Look at the mark you’ve made
Raise your head, look at all the different ways ahead
Coz you’re, always finding your rhythm when you least thought that you would
You’re always finding your rhythm when you least thought that you would x 2

Why don’t you want me
Why am I not good enough
You being you makes you happy
And me being me does me too.

I can’t be who you want me to be
But I can be everything I am.
Maybe I could lead you through your darkness
Did you think that I might be the one?

Did you loose your vision?
Did you loose your way?
Did you loose your rhythm?
Did you loose your way?
Track Name: Alone on the Moon
I want you to support this pioneer
In search for new lands
I know that you care for me
And you don’t want me to fall into the wrong hands
But you’re moving, me, away

You say you’re watching over this
You don’t want to see disappointment
To be cautious of these dreams
And scared of the outcome
Do I need you…. To believe?

Yes you respect my courage
Now that you see I’ve been brave
You’re looking at me through different eyes
I can see it on your face
The skin cracks around the soul
The light and dark filter through
You’ll never understand,
But you’re starting to,
Believe, in me.

From the furthest planet
To the smallest living thing
Here we are suspended in the middle
Of something so beautiful, yes its
Something so beautiful that,
We don’t see.
Track Name: The Magician
Would you bruise my confidence and inflict some pain?
Make the possible seem impossible would you drive me insane?
Tear at my skin with your bloody tears of doubt
Wash away my courage would you leave me without

Sometimes your being with me is keeping me alive
The sound of your footsteps and the beating of your pulse
Buy that winning ticket move far far away (what do I care)
To a land where all that glitters is gold

You either love hate are indifferent to the ground on which I stand
Depending on where you're building your walls
I can't judge I know how it is.
Walking alone along downtrodden streets
Demons pose silently on the corner of the roads
Waiting for you to notice their pointing tails

The power of suggestion in the vulnerable and weak
Mindful of the fears and what attention seeks
Nurture my addiction and make sure that when you're done
I know I have reached this ripe old age of 31

There is only that which helps us live and that which helps us die
A survivor is someone who has stepped into the light
Broken restless community, I speak in diamonds, hearts and clubs
The spade of my wisdom is nothing more nothing less

Than a gentle soul speaking in the dark
Than a gentle soul calling in the dark
Than a gentle soul flickering in the dark
Track Name: White Light
You fill me up
With light
I can see, miracles,
in every thing, now

And I'm holding on
For my life
The waters running fast
And wild
So I'm holding on
For my life

Don't wake me up
From this dream
Coz everything is possible here
And I can breathe
I can breathe
With you
Don't wake me up
From this dream
Coz everything is as it seems
With you.
