Southern Land I’ll be back again To the southern land Gradually driving across that distance That lately has kept us apart Yet I don’t know how I’ll find your eyes They must be hiding away from the blackbirds That long time ago flew wild You may see them fly And gently melt themselves Diving into sunset Heading west Once I get down there I’m gonna settle down I might build a house ‘neath the mountains And live the life of light and sound Hope you come with me Through this carrousel Moving around, drawing circles of life Through a wonderful day by day And as your melody Gently leaves your lips I will forget my demands Of eternity I’ll be back again To the southern land Beautiful sights through the windows of time While illusion is born within your eyes I’ll be back again I’ll be back again Well I don’t know when © Moses Rubin 2018

Leeds 03:06
Leeds Evenings of teas and recordings Yorkshire is somewhere to learn Leeds had initially inspired some trouble Settling down was strange Silently crossing the river Aire Found out myself in the storm It’s getting dark and the wind keeps whispering Gradually taking my warmth We don’t know, we don’t know it And we’re probably getting old here Loosing time and our belongings As we’ll soon be heading home again Briggate is often a mirror As we drift down by the arcades Loaded with stuff to fill our shelter Surrounded by temples of shame While owls made of gold in Millennium Square Guard our souls as we play Parkinson Building is gently stalking As we wait for the bus down the stairs We don’t know, we don’t know it And we’re probably getting old here Loosing time and our belongings As we’ll soon be heading home again Kirkgate’s become familiar now Though at first sight we looked a bit scared The snow on the railways, the market loudness The smell from the fire at the Duck & Drake © Moses Rubin 2018

The Intermediate Day’s getting grey, queues at the bus stops At the Corn Exchange, bulldog’s in the back door Kirkgate Market slowly closes down Ceasing hustle, vans and dancers intermingle It’s time to scape from town And you don’t know where’re all the people gone Nothing happens there till eight o’clock Now Vicar Lane looks quite deserted But Yorkshire evening light keeps me awaken Bricks reflecting sunset through the mist Cornucopia’s rainbow is shining, we’re deciding What we’re going to eat After our shift, starting at seven Already had our coffee at Hepworth’s together An old lady is at the amusements doors With her trolley, seeking for redemption at the bottom of her purse Trees upon the hills, dusk in the outskirts Visions of the wind, rocking your laughter The alleyway towards the factory Brings a smell that wriggles after The intermediate time has bared the street And it’s time to leave… To leave the world behind © Moses Rubin 2018

My Room 03:35
My Room Sometimes I’d like to go back my room ‘Cause that’s the place where I belong And if you look for me You know where you can find me Between my shelves Behind that wooden door Sometimes I’d like to go back my bed ‘Cause that’s the place we loved each one And hide among the sheets While everything around keeps turning While I’m still growing wide Illusion knocking at my door Now that I’m away and stranded Far from all I’ve saved and lived Facing change, while life Keeps finding its way Close to you Together through time Sometimes I’d like to hide on my wardrobe ‘Cause that’s the place we used to play Wish I could go back those days Where everything was shining Sister, Sundays were a little lovely place To grow with you Sometimes I’d like to dive in my drawers Where all my memories stay And I want to hold the precious life I’ve left behind me Still I’ll know there are some people That would love me more © Moses Rubin 2018

* (a poem on) Transpennine Express I’ve been travelling a long time, I've been waiting for the sun to come I might have found it in your eyes, They softly keep me alive They gently rock me when the day is gone Sunset’s feeding from the tall grass Facing change and what’s supposed to come And what I do is just forget How simply freedom is made How subtly life has brought me here today

about

Este es un álbum de melancolía y tristeza cuyas canciones tienen un punto en común: Leeds. Todas ellas, o bien fueron escritas allí, o fueron creadas con el objetivo de describir sus lugares, su gente y sus situaciones. Mientras que algunas como “Southern Land” o “My Room” son canciones nacidas del anhelo de aquel que se sabe lejos de casa, otras como “Leeds”, “The Intermediate” o “Transpennine Express” surgieron de la necesidad de plasmar mis sentimientos hacia esa ciudad a través del tiempo y la distancia.

ENG: This is an album of wistfulness and sorrow whose songs have a common point: Leeds. All of them were either written there or created to describe its places, people and situations. While some of these tunes, such as “Southern Land” or “My Room”, are sorts of homesick songs, others like “Leeds”, “The Intermediate“ or “Transpennine Express” were born from the necessity of capturing my feelings towards that city through time and distance.

about

Moses Rubin Leeds, UK

Moses Rubin is born from the northern winds that have brought me back to my homeland carrying a rucksack full of songs, experiences, eagerness and the necessity of going it alone in what is my first adventure as a solo artist.
