Estate Fair 04:09
How do I know? He said he’d stay but he won’t He said he’d stay but he won’t He said he’d stay but he won’t I’d made a film but the pictures slow Don’t wanna keep him but I can’t let go Never dance without control Sold all my nerve but you speak so low Search won’t end me, it won’t take me down Search won’t end me, it won’t take me down. Search won’t end me, it won’t take me down i gotta tell you that we can’t be friends I’ll spend your money but I won’t depend I feel the flutters but they won’t step through Now I’ll be coming if it pleases you Search won’t end me, it won’t me take down Search won’t end me, it won’t me take down Search won’t end me, it won’t me take down You better stay till i find my place You better stay till I find my place

We were made to forgive Just carry on and live already No eye for an eye No tooth for a tooth With all of the cruel things that I do to you We would be fruitless and unable to move So we forgive and forgive and forgive till we’re blue Did you see what they did They played it on the t.v. And no one stopped to help her Even while she’s screaming We were made to forgive Just carry on and live already No eye for an eye..... No tooth for a tooth With all of the cruel things that I do to you We would be fruitless and unable to move So we forgive and forgive and forgive till we’re blue Did you hear what she did Who can believe it minder on the counter abandon all my amity We were made to forgive.. Just carry on and live already.. No eye for an eye..... No tooth for a tooth With all of the cruel things that I do to you We would be fruitless and unable to move So we forgive and forgive and forgive till were blue

Great Lies 04:16
Do my lips make you hungry But my tongue makes you tired Do my lips make you hungry But my tongue makes you tired I know that you want me but I can’t be revived Can’t be revived Can’t be revived I know that you want me but I can’t be revived Can’t be revived Can’t be revived I imagined when I was younger I’d be on the righteous side that the walls with time grew taller but i dissolved against the tide And now that I am older The sand in bed within Don’t believe in what you tell me I don’t believe that we can win Oh we’re tumbling tumbling tumbling for the fountain of youth Oh we’re tumbling tumbling tumbling for the fountain of youth The march is so long that we can’t keep our stride Not that we’ve tried Not that we’ve tried The march is so long that we can’t keep our stride Not that we’ve tried Not that we’ve tried There are great lies between us but small things to hide Small things to hide Small things to hide There are great lies between us but small things to hide Small things to hide Small things to hide I imagined when I was younger That angels were standing by That beliefs were heard by god That the dead were once alive Now that I am older cash have taken over Gorged upon the poorer junk collapse the soldier Oh we’re tumbling tumbling tumbling for the fountain of youth Oh we’re tumbling tumbling tumbling for the fountain of youth (C) Lyrics by Channy Leaneagh This is Polica ASCAP Publishing

Remind Me 04:54
Remind me why is this happening Forgetting your hold in my foresight Remind me why is this happening Forgetting your hold in my foresight No, I didn’t mean to No, I didn’t mean to No, I, No, I Didn’t mean to Say it again Look into my eyes, I deceive you All these ghost despise what I do Look into eyes I deceive you All these ghosts despise what I do No, I didn’t mean to No, I didn’t mean to No, I, No, I didn’t mean to Say it again…. Never return Swollen knees the bridge is burn Smoke in my ears Climbing onto all my fears Never return Swollen knees the bridge is burn Smoke in my ears Climbing onto all my fears No, I didn’t mean to No, I didn’t mean to No, I, No, I didn’t mean to Say it again….

The Wire 04:12
send the wire send the wire to the call call the sender tell the world the light is dim and we’re the garbage we’re the garbage seeping into the fire that the oil cannot burn we don’t want you, we don’t want you anymore i feel you don’t want me i feel you don’t want me anymore Bury the water bury the water underground drink it quickly before our hands and feet are bound Savor the sunshine savor the sunshine and the sand a billion people in the hand of wicked man I’ll be you’ll be biting off the blade i’ll be you’ll be leaving me to stay
7.
Wonder 04:57
Sometimes I wonder what I’d be If I was left to only me No one to feel the way I feel Pulling Words from my tongue Oh they’ll kill The story of Ophelia that I was told Writing letters that can’t unfold Misanthropy, thistle thorn Wearing all the ways that I’ve been warned I….I want it my way my lover wills it no… So he’ll be on his way Before I know it… I...I...I want it my way my lover wills it no…. My lover wills it no so he’ll be on his way Nurse has called I’m cured of it all Nettle fed the Thorn Withdraws vivid memory time his kin and as old as he was still without sin But I ...I..I want it my way my lover wills no… So he’ll be on his way Before you know it I want it my way My lover doesn’t know No My lover wills it know So he’ll be on his way

about

Roma di Luna are proud to announce our 7th release - “We Were Made to Forgive.” Out April 6th on all digital platforms and physical release May 6th in the US and shortly after in the EU/AUS.

It has been quite a long time since our last one, and we certainly have a history- a quick Google search will enlighten you. But here we are, all the original members, releasing nine new songs into the world and for the first time on vinyl.

So why now? We donated the proceeds from our reunion show- it wasn’t for the money. The title is a clue I suppose, but when all is said and done we are all connected now. When we’re all in a room together we laugh, play better, laugh some more, are better.

We’ve all done a lot of different things musically since our last release, and you can hear some of that in this new one. But you’ll find that same voice, heart and soul in there.

The songs. Some of them we wrote and played back before our break, others when a handful of us had a new project called Warey. Some are from months ago.

Most of them were recorded at Sparta Sound in Sparta MN by our old friend Rich Mattson, a couple by bandmember Ben Durrant at his Crazy Beast Studio in NE Mpls, and at the Train House in Maiden Rock, WI.

Most songs were mixed by Alex Proctor at April Base in Fall Creek WI, but a couple were by Ben.

As a band we’ve been lucky enough to play shows with Mavis Staples, Bon Iver, Andrew Bird; at several weddings and at a wake; at venues big and small all around.

We are celebrating the release of “We Were Made to Forgive” on May 4th, 2018 at the Cedar Cultural Center in Mpls MN. We hope you will give it a listen and join us.
