Iris Lune

3 albums

Through the vessel of Iris Lune, beguiling front woman Ella Joy Meir aims to extinguish the veil between art and lif. Gripping, downcast, lucid, the volcanic talent's soul-stirring alto penetrates deeply - leaving a gossamer sheen that fully envelops the senses. A bonafide triple threat, Meir is in constant flex as a lead vocalist, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer, whose alluring Iris Lune cloak could rival any of her own art-pop heroines Florence Welch, Bjork, Mitski and Joni Mitchell. With two EP's under her belt, the queer upstart has netted over a millions streams across platforms to date, and has become a local live force, selling out shows in her home of New York City.

Lyrics:

Today Look me in the eye Just once Swallow me like darkness I’ll follow you into the wall My heart beats in triplets Now Just look me in the eye Carelessly Trace me down like light I’ll fight what’s left My heart beats in triplets We’re almost there On the other side of dawn Our heads swirl with joy But our bodies frown And as we lean forward to touch the sounds We’re pulled by gravity, Like leaves craving for a solid ground. You will never again look me in the eye. My heart beats in triplets.

Lyrics:

I heard you under the weight of the sun leaves rustling, and a whistle so easy I thought I’d burn my eyes when I looked up I saw you there Blue and beautiful, watercolors through the sky It breaks me how you lift me up, all my insides turn to dust; it's such a small gesture. In the blazing sun I remember who I am For a moment there’s no doubt I am you and you are me you are me can’t you see On a branch of a lemon tree I saw you, so calm and so serene I wonder what you know In your black eyes pools of memories and sights Give me something, show me vistas full of light In the blazing sun I remember who I am For a moment there’s no doubt I am you and you are me you are me can’t you see

Lyrics:

Broken thoughts on the tip of my tongue urging to slip out, to spill I can’t stop this feeling haunting me It seems to follow wherever I go Aching cravings on the side of the road Frozen in time I don’t know where this is going but I don’t like it no, I don’t like it My dear, I’m in the headlights hardly moving Breathing fast under the moonlight just need to get away (and run)

Lyrics:

I’ve told you once and I’ll say it again Whatever you need so you can Listen No matter how you turn it there is nothing under No matter how you learn it it’s a numb null void to fill (And it doesn’t add up it doesn’t add up it doesn’t add up) Line up the numbers write down the names, whatever you need to make it make sense But no matter how you turn it there is nothing under No matter how you earn it it slips away so easily/fast (And it doesn’t add up it doesn’t add up it doesn’t add up)

Lyrics:

have I let my dreams fall through an imaginary timeline all the things I say and do I can see them, like whispers on a web you think you can unlink me from all the places that we’ve been I’m not a flower on your chain you can’t screenshot every little pain If you never liked it, it never happened it never happened Unlike life Unlike Is my honesty embarrassing? raw emotions from the gut you copy, paste, ignore, and cut I know, the words, they feed you Wish I could look you in the eye and show you everything you’ve done Memories all tagged with stains, screenshots of every little pain If you never liked it, it never happened It never happened Unlike life Unlike If you never liked it, it never happened It never happened Unlike life Unlike I play my thoughts Repeatedly On a broken string (What could’ve been?) I feel ashamed (What could’ve been?) Let the memories seep in What could’ve been? If you never liked it, it never happened It never happened Unlike life Unlike If you never liked it, it never happened It never happened Unlike life Unlike

Drink The Twilight Iris Lune

Lyrics:

Sapphires and greens Caught me in a web They drew me in A stroke of gold by the head I waited patiently But my feathers were bound And all I remember was the sun Fire in me Is burning into cold All the treasures I held Have long ago been sold I’m waiting patiently But my feathers are bound And all I can think of is the sun Mother, hold me tight Just for a little while I need to change direction Mother, hold me tight While I drink the twilight Just for a little while

Lyrics:

There's nothing I can give to you anymore Just pack your things and go When everything's a lie, I fear, There is nothing to hold on to You can see it in my eyes, my dear, The weight has tired me The weight of the stones in my pockets I've carried with you for many years My love is leaking It's leaking You say you're sorry For the times you did not see That when everything's a sign You need to cut to the chase and set us free It's written on your face, my dear, Your glance just passes by Now all that's left are souvenirs – A handful of pebbles, A scent of an open sky My love is leaking It's leaking Sing a lullaby The words slip through my mouth, Although I have to leave Your hands are still against my back Unraveling my wings Now I know for sure That I will drown For my love is leaking It’s Leaking

Lyrics:

Build me a house in the ocean I’ll come every spring Between the codfish and whales Who knows what time might bring Pave me a way through the waves Towards the crystallizing sun And when you visit me We can go for a run If you bring me the moon, darling I’ll sing you the sky Bring me the Lune, dear I dare you to try I’ll paint it with shades of sunset I’ll leave the darkness out the door The clouds will be my rooftop And ripples at my floor If you bring me the moon, darling I’ll sing you the sky Bring me the Lune, dear I dare you to try You don’t believe in magic, do you? It’ll keep you safe and warm You cannot look for Isis When you’re grounded down with stones If you bring me the moon, darling I’ll sing you the sky Bring me the Lune, dear I dare you to try
