about

Above the Moon Madison, New Jersey

Above the Moon is a four-piece that melds indie pop melodies with 90’s rock intensity. The group has pulled from their individual experiences, years of playing in multiple bands in various clubs, bars and basements, to develop a sound that is reminiscent of the greats they grew up on, but still remains new and exciting. ... more

Track Name: Feel it Again
I thought this would be much easier, but now
Now that we’ve tried
I’d like to make a change to our arrangement that
Keeps us side by side

‘Cause every night
I like awake and try to make
My mind just dream of you
I’ve found that sleep
Is the only way
That I can keep my senses
When I’m this far away
From you

I’ve heard that distance makes the heart grow fonder, but
Mine’s doubled in size
Don’t know if I can take this too much longer I’m
Running out of room on the inside

‘Cause every night
I like awake and try to make
My mind just dream of you
I’ve found that sleep
Is the only way
That I can keep my senses
When I’m this far away
From you

I can feel it again
What I once feared for dead
If you stay the night
I swear I’ll never close my eyes
‘Cause I can’t tell my dreams from real life.
Track Name: Silver Tongue
Thought I didn’t understand where you were coming from
Cause I was young
But I’ve seen tricks like yours before
Took the silence as a sign that you could walk all over me
And when my back was turned
You thought I couldn’t see

But I saw everything

Your silver tongue
It only works if someone’s listening
But when you’re all alone
The weight it fills your mouth
And brings you down instead

Using everybody else’s tragedy to fuel you’re own
And from in side your mirrored house
You’re throwing stones
Won’t look away from your reflection just a second long enough to see
The damage that you’ve done
Continue blaming everyone

You don’t mean anything

Your silver tongue
It only works if someone’s listening
But when you’re all alone
The weight it fills your mouth
And brings you down instead

Instead of painting
Crowns and ships
A broken heart with cracks in it
Please grow up just a little bit
And learn to shut your mouth

But you just don’t know how

Your silver tongue
It only works if someone’s listening
But when you’re all alone
The weight it fills your mouth
And brings you down instead
Track Name: More Time
Oh what happens on the day
When you can’t relate to me
Will you remember my name
Carried off by winds of change

Oh, but we’re not there yet
I can see it coming,
But we’ve got time.

Is there something we can do
Trying to escape the truth
We were doing fine, but now
I can’t seem to figure you out

Oh, but we’re not there yet
I can see it coming,
I thought we had more time

Just a little more time

I can recognize it’s just a stepping stone
I don’t understand why we should be alone
This won’t last forever,
Despite all our efforts,
We don’t fit together.

Oh, but we’re not there yet.
I can see it coming,
We’re running out of time.
Track Name: Stop Trying
My heart was
So dried up and raw
From trying
To make you see what I saw

But there’s no mirror
Big enough to show
You just how much
I knew that you could grow

You wouldn’t do it then
For me
You didn’t even start
Until you saw
That I was leaving

Now it’s
Too little too late
I know
Exactly what that means
I’m too busy
To wait for you
If only you knew what I’d seen.

Your heart was
Always in the right place
But wrong time
And I could see in your face

That I still wanted
All this more than you
But I was tired of working
Hard enough
For two

Now it’s
Too little too late
I know
Exactly what that means
I’m too busy
To wait for you
If only you knew what I’d seen
You would
Stop trying to show me all
The things you learned to be
It’s too little too late
For you and me

Now and then when I have time
I wonder what it would be like
If I woke up still in that life
But every time it feels like it’s

Too little too late
I know
Exactly what that means
I’m too busy
To wait for you
If only you knew what I’d seen
You would
Stop trying to show me all
The things you learned to be
It’s too little too late
For you and me
Track Name: Moon
I feel like the moon
Pushing and pulling on you
I’m going through phases and stages
I’m always changing, but
You’ve changed, too.

I’m just like the moon
Far off, but watching you.
I can’t get away, can’t escape it
These waves keep chasing, but
I can’t move.
I wax and I wane
But the distance is the same.
I thought I was strong, the longer
This all rolls on I find that I might break.

Promises we made
I watch them float away
At night I see myself
In every move you make.

I’m just like the moon
pushing and pulling on you.
I’m going through phases and stages
I’m always changing, but
You’ve changed, too.
