"Gentle yet haunting, mysterious yet familiar, the music of the husband and wife duo The Woodlands is full of intrigue...One of our favorite up and coming bands!"
---SPIN


"Hannah muses about daydreams and longings while Samuel fills the sonic atmosphere with enchanting melodies."
---KCRW (Today's Top Tune)


"Serene mosaic of fairytale-like sound."
---CMJ


"This band could just as easily be a folk-pop duo from Stockholm or Liverpool, or even Berlin. It’s a trait that makes their music unique, and it makes it really, really good."
---FensePost


"The Woodlands album is absolutely an ethereal trip through some of the best indie folk pop you will find (or I have ever found)."
---Slowcoustic


"As soon as we listened we dug out our English dictionaries and started flipping desperately through them, looking for the right words to describe it. They had to be beautiful words, big words, words that hadn't been used before!"
---Letters Have No Arms!

Track Name: Until The Day Dims
UNTIL THE DAY DIMS


V1
That day Saturday took us to your door
Sat in the kitchen with windows
Open so wide
Slowly candidly words were unfolding
Hands on the table and grasping
Comfort our souls


CH
And we’ll linger
Until the day dims
Suddenly leaves us
Then we’ll go

And we’ll linger
Until the night falls
Flooding the sidewalks
Then we’ll go

V2
We tried not to collide with the moment
Wear it away like a photograph
Yellow with time
Young spring it can be fleeting we gather
Holding the tones of our laughter
Filling the room


CH
And we’ll linger
Until the day dims
Suddenly leaves us
Then we’ll go

And we’ll linger
Until the night falls
Flooding the sidewalks


B
Oh oh oh ohhhh
Oh oh oh ohhhh
Oh oh oh ohhhh


CH
And we’ll linger
Until the day dims
Suddenly leaves us
Then we’ll go

And we’ll linger
Until the night falls
Flooding the sidewalks
Then we’ll go

Track Name: Can We Stay
CAN WE STAY


V1
Moonlight streaming through
Through the leaves onto you
And your face all aglow
I see what I had not known

CH
Can we stay here longer
Can we stay until tomorrow
Can we stay here forever

V2
Pale rays forging through
Through this unearthly view
And so perilously
Notions underneath agree

CH
Can we stay here longer
Can we stay until tomorrow
Can we stay here forever

B
Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

CH
Can we stay here longer
Can we stay until tomorrow
Can we stay here forever

Track Name: King And Queen
KING AND QUEEN


V1
Won’t you lie here next to me
We could try hardly to breathe
You would be king, I the queen

V2
Won’t you lie here in the dark
Shadows in the attic we are
Flicker of a candle a spark

CH
Oooh
Oooh
Ooooohhhh


V3
Won’t you lie here on the sea
We could float the foamy debris
Fathom all the phantoms of blue-green

V4
Won’t you lie here in the storm
While the wind weathers our forms
As the dust blows all the more


CH
Oooh
Oooh
Ooooohhhh

V5
Won’t you lie here on the moon
Sparkle in the silvery dunes
Cradled in a bright white cocoon

CH
Oooh
Oooh
Ooooohhhh

Track Name: Day To Day
DAY TO DAY


V1
Plans can fail
People break
I will move
In the wind like the trees do

CH
Day to day
Today
Ohhh
Day to day
Today

V2
Truth I have
Held so dear
Can’t be torn
Easily from within me

CH
Day to day
Today
Ohhh
Day to day
Today

V3
All I’ve held
In the soil
Of my soul
Blossom here into beauty

CH
Day to day
Today
Ohhh
Day to day
Today

B
Ahhhhh
Da Da Dadada
Ahhhhh
Da Da Dadada


V4
Plans can fail
People break

Track Name: Anymore
ANYMORE


V1
You came to me crawling between
Openings I couldn’t see
Inviting me on broken knees
Empty spaces begging me


CH
Anymore
Anymore


V2
Darkness sits I raise my head
To glance outside where life is
And I told you I would not go
For what you do that I know

CH
Anymore
Anymore
Anymore
Anymore


V3
Rescued by a still small cry
There is more that is mine
I kissed that face I shut the door
And I won’t have anymore


CH
Anymore
Anymore
Anymore
Anymore


V4
Rescued by a still small cry
There is more that is mine
I kissed that face I shut the door
And I won’t have anymore


CH
Anymore
Anymore
Anymore
Anymore

Track Name: Summerland
SUMMERLAND


V1
I want to be
Eating honey from your hand
In the Summerland
Can we run
Through the grass and all the reeds
And meet oh pretty please

V2
And we will dance
To the songs that plague our heads
In the Summerland
And we will speak
Without saying anything
Much of anything


CH
You know what I don’t
About the Summerland
Oh you know what I don’t
About the Summerland


V3
That old wind
Rushing like it’s always been
In the Summerland
Once you have come
Through the doors that look like trees
There’s no returning

CH
You know what I don’t
About the Summerland
Oh you know what I don’t
About the Summerland


B
Mmmm Mmmmm
Oh Da da da da
Mmmm Mmmmm
Oh Da da da da


V4
How strange it is
To not recollect all that
Life had ever been
You cannot know
How you came or how to go
From the Summerland


CH
You know what I don’t
About the Summerland
Oh you know what I don’t
About the Summerland


B
Mmmm Mmmmm
Oh Da da da da
Mmmm Mmmmm
Oh Da da da da

Track Name: In The Dark On Monday
IN THE DARK ON MONDAY


V1
Five in the morning
On my bike in the dark on Monday
My shoes are wet
And the streets are too wet to be riding

V2
Leaves glow orange
One falls on my hand I don’t attempt removing it
I soar through red lights
Almost turning my head precariously
One more block until
I will have to stop

CH
What if I kept going
I’ll keep going
Just not knowing
Where I’m going

V3
My hat is worn low
While squinting ahead in a blurred glow
Twirling rectangular
Sign flashes brightly the cold outside
One more block until
I will have to stop

CH
What if I kept going
I’ll keep going
Just not knowing
Where I’m going


V4
I reverse numbers
Up there in my mind I am warmed inside
I decide where I’d be
If they were measured inaccurately
One more block until
I will have to stop

CH
What if I kept going
I’ll keep going
Just not knowing
Where I’m going

What if I kept going
I’ll keep going
Just not knowing
Where I’m going


V5
One more block until
I will have to stop
What if I kept going

Track Name: On The Waves
ON THE WAVES


V1
You said it’s just the grey again
But I know you have
Been crying about the way
That your life has been all the years


CH
On this ship and on the waves
Whispered tears and cries of pain
On this ship and in the wind
Turning you around again
On this ship and on the waves
Fall inside disorder waits


V2
You said it’s just the same again
But I know you have
Washed your hands of this
To then revisit all the years


CH
On this ship and on the waves
Whispered tears and cries of pain
On this ship and in the wind
Turning you around again
On this ship and on the waves
Fall inside disorder waits


B
Ohhh oh oh
Ohhh oh oh ohhh
Ohhh oh oh
Ohhh oh oh ohhh



CH2
Love is lost gone out to sea
Surrender your final plea
Save yourselves or you will be
Swallowed up by the deep
Love is lost gone out to sea
Surrender your final plea
Save yourselves or you will be
Swallowed up by the deep

Track Name: Asleep In September
ASLEEP IN SEPTEMBER


V1
Asleep in September go
Looming alongside its pulse
Asleep although dawn has gone
Dazed by day’s light dusk falls


CH
Awake to rise steady eyes
Oh oh oh oh
Awake to rise steady eyes
Oh oh


V2
Asleep while the timbers drop
Crowding surrounded stir not
Asleep though covered in thoughts
Rustling forth from the dust

CH
Awake to rise steady eyes
Oh oh oh oh
Awake to rise steady eyes
Oh oh oh oh
Awake to rise steady eyes
Oh oh

Track Name: Through The Winter
THROUGH THE WINTER


V1
Such light shines so bright
Through the winter
Stirring in the night
Such light shines so far
Through the winter
When it is the dark


CH
Along the way
Upon the way
Ay hey
Along the way
Upon the way
Ay hey


V2
Such light finds me close
Through the winter
Underneath the cold
Such light finds me here
Through the winter
Of the frozen year


CH
Along the way
Upon the way
Ay hey
Along the way
Upon the way
Ay hey


V3
Arrayed stark and vast
Through the winter
Where vacant days shall pass
Behold crescent glow
Through the winter
Where barren blossoms grow


CH
Along the way
Upon the way
Ay hey
Along the way
Upon the way
Ay hey
