about

“Mara is a gifted, poetic, creative, unique artist. Her lyrics & melodies paint impressionistic imagery as she performs. If there's a category called alt-prog-folk-art music, I'd say The Marigold is helping to define it.” - Rik Emmett (Triumph)

June 2013 marks the release of Mara & The Marigold's self-titled EP. The highly anticipated debut EP features the group's lyrically driven and melodically compelling songwriting, as well as rich texture and colour, creating a truly eclectic sound. From beginning to end, Mara & The Marigold EP leaves the listener with the feeling of both familiarity and newness.

Mara Nesrallah – vocals, piano, wurlitzer, acoustic guitar

Track Name: Mourning Bells
Silent morning, precious day
Wake with glory, come now, stay

Bells from far rang one, two, three
Heard from their bed through their tangled sheets

She was worried what he'd say
When she told him of her heart's true ways

He was worried what she'd say
When he told her his love's gone away
So they wait

Time does tell all secrets hid
Lives unfurl and hearts do quit

Left alone, she tries to sleep
Repeating these words so she might reach her dreams:

Let those bells crash around your head
Celebrate what you can
Weave each gold and silver thread
Through your humble hands
Track Name: Doomsday Dreams
Six cents in your palm, a sixth sense that you'll find yourself in the gutter
Righting a wrong, writing a song, sweet as your mother
Paying for your looks, paying for a book, give the cash to the teller
Pen to the paper, penance for the doom from the notions of your slumber

If you want me by your side, I'll be there
Please don't live in caution, just be aware
That the dreams you see as truths will vanish in the air
As you open your eyes to the morning's glare

Walk the pathway of glass, it will take your breath away
Walk the pathway of glass, it will take your breath away
Bring me home, don't look back, this is yours where we lay
Walk the pathway of glass, it will take your breath away

If you want me by your side, I'll be there
Please don't live in caution, just be aware
That the dreams we see as truths will vanish in the air
As we open our eyes to the morning's glare
Track Name: Wanderer
Lonely little wanderer
Hold your head up high
Tear through the unkept trail
Protect those golden eyes
You'll be fine

Hungry little wanderer
Waiting for a sign
Holding on to your breathe
And running out of time
You'll be fine

Tired little wanderer
Each second flying by
Your mind three steps forward
Your body two behind
You'll be fine

Translate the sound
Hold on to your crown
The trees keep coming down
The trees keep coming down
Track Name: Spill The Ash
If you can feel, if you can see
The light from the window stream on to me

If you can feel, if you can see
The dust from my travels woven through my knees

Carry me home
Love me true
Spill the ash
And see me through
Back to you

Boxes of puzzles stacked in threes
Off of the gravel and now in the trees

Boxes of matches thrown in the fire
They warm my fingers in the coming hours

Carry me home
Love me true
Spill the ash
And see me through
Back to you
Track Name: Wash
A cloud before the skyline hangs heavy in the air
How do I know you're mine when you're never there?

You rest behind my eyelids, you leave honey on my lips
But when the rain starts crashing, you're up, gone, quit

And it's washed away
It's washed away
A new day
Wish you'd've stayed
Track Name: Montreal
I will collide the self and safe
I will divide my mind and my state
But I can prescribe the time and place
For us to start our victory's chase

I will throw it all when I go home to Montreal
I will seek to solve when I park home in Montreal, in Montreal

Flowers on our mantle grew
And the scent of their sweet perfume
Drifted throughout our dusty room
Mix of the dance of sunlight and the blooms

I will throw it all when I go home to Montreal
I will seek to solve when I park home in Montreal, in Montreal

The type of person this world breeds
Everyone wants to succeed
Don't lose the heart, the hurt, the need
To keep our heads in reality

I will throw it all when I go home to Montreal
I will seek to solve when I park home in Montreal, in Montreal
