about

"If you're in love, have ever been in love, hope to someday be in love, or have heard of love, Samantha Farrell's new EP, Softly Swooning World, was written with you in mind. With her latest release, Sam somehow manages to beautifully, concisely, and thoroughly encapsulate one of the more elusive emotions, without ever veering into cheesy or trite territory.
Every lyric and note of this album serves a purpose and creates a mood that, in the end, amounts to a sweepingly gorgeous, moving, and authentic tribute to love.
Listening to Softly Swooning World is like wrapping yourself up in a cocoon; it is, in the truest sense of the word, transportive. Get ready to swoon."
- Nikki Van Noy, Author/Weekly DaveSpeak

“Softly Swooning World is indeed the most exciting collection of songs I've heard in a long time. Samantha Farrell is an artist that deserves to be heard by a major audience.”
- Jeff Labes, Arranger/Pianist for Van Morrison, Bonnie Raitt

Track Name: Softly Swooning World
Spinning around the kitchen floor
Yellow lights through windows pour
I could go on for days
Watching light move across your face

Coffee brews, the kettle screams
Grace is in our simplicity
You cast me a long look
Beckon me close as you put down your book

It's a softly swooning world
These are the days to remember
It's a softly swooning world
That goes on forever

Life is long, life is grand
Down country roads you take my hand
We talk for hours but I can't recall
Having to say a word at all

Twilight comes heady and low
You're asleep in moonlight and shadow
The longest lashes on heavy lids
Eternity's made of days like this

It's a softly swooning world
These are the days to remember
It's a softly swooning world
That goes on forever
Track Name: Amor Fati
Don't take your eyes from me
This moment, alchemy
Chaos goes quiet how
Did I live before now?

I'm falling slowly to you
Down we're going

I feel it start to fall away
No stopping this runaway train

Let the night come to me
Sweet darkness, all consuming
Signals flash from the shore
Can't hear them anymore

I'm falling slowly to you
Down we're going

I feel it start to fall away
No stopping this runaway train

All of my roads lead back to you
Somehow I always knew
Whispers in the wind murmur to me
Amor Fati

I feel it start to fall away
No stopping this runaway train
I feel it start to fall away
Amor Fati
Track Name: Lady in the Moon
In the early morning
You can find her there
When the wind is blowing
Flowers in her hair

The one you thought you lost
The one who haunts your dreams
The one who whispers in your sleep
The lady in the moon
She will come back for you
She will come back for you
The lady in the moon

Faded pictures folded
In the back of jeans
Always on your body
Close to mystery

The sun is shining bright
But still you long for night
Waiting for silver to fill your room
The lady in the moon
She will come back for you
She will come back for you
Track Name: Lover, She's Waiting for You
Rain washed air
Twilight coming sweet and low
Lilac bloom
Intoxicating scent as the wind blows

Whisps of hair
Tickling her face, her fingers smooth
Down her dress
Because she knows that he'll be coming soon

And tonight feels like the movies
Something incredible brewing
Anticipation so sweet and true
Lover, she's waiting for you

Reckless spring
Exploding into color, into sound
As he moves
He barely feels his feet upon the ground

Her perfect lips
He can feel the warmth beneath his skin
Hands in his pockets
So she won't notice the trembling

And tonight feels like the movies
Something incredible brewing
Anticipation so sweet and true
Lover, she's waiting for you
Track Name: Nocturne
I think of you often
Especially at night
When the sun's going down
And it's too dark to write

Body's in motion
Somewhere out of time
The center it pulls
Us in a dance divine

There's nothing to do now
But wait for the stars
A time that I love
A time that is ours

There's some kind of sweetness
In this solitude
I'm wide as the sky
And still as the moon

Edges dissolving
Like honey in wine
Distance means nothing
Between you and I

Here we exist
Between shadow and soul
Never is spoken
But always is known

Come here my slow muse
This is a softly swooning world
Come here my slow muse
This is a softly swooning world
