about

"Silver Moon" is the title track from Jono Manson's forthcoming album. Release date: April 10th, 2020

Here, masterfully accompanied by Jason Crosby’s Hammond B3 and Warren Haynes’ teardrop slide guitar playing, Jono sings: Like the moving clouds/Or the majesty of gravity/She pulls the tides/In ways we cannot see/Like departed souls/Who may show their face/At unlikely times/In a surprising place/So if you’re looking out/Underneath a pale blue sky/Like the morning moon/Sometimes they shine.
Haynes comments: “Silver Moon is a beautiful song. Playing on the recording reminded me of late nights playing together at The Wetlands back in the 90’s.”

lyrics

There's a silver moon
Floating in a pale blue sky
When I look up
I wonder why
She hangs around
In the morning light
When she’ll need to shine
Through the dark of night

And as the golden sun
Illuminates the great divide
She will slip away
Slowly, right before our eyes
If she disappears
Into the air
It doesn't mean
That she's not there

All around us, deep inside
Always more than meets the eye
Ever asking to be known
In the sky, in the bone

Like the moving clouds
Or the majesty of gravity
She pulls the tides
In ways we cannot see
Like departed souls
Who may show their face
At unlikely times
In a surprising place

So, if you’re looking out
Underneath a pale blue sky
Like the morning moon
They sometimes shine

All around us, deep inside
Always more than meets the eye
Ever asking to be known
In the sky, in the bone
