If you see the accordion girl Better walk the other way Underneath the viaduct Might be where you'll hear her play If you see the accordion girl I'll give you some advice Avoid her eyes and walk away And I lie in the night and I listen And I want to hear her play If you see the accordion girl Walking by the perfumed river Tell me is she on her own Tell me is there someone with her Where the grapes hang thick on the vine And far behind the faint stars shine And fall like pearls of alien corn That break in waves against my door If you see the accordion girl And I lie in the night and I listen And I want to hear her play

Shantell 03:22
Winter words blow the trees Creatures trapped have to fall Hear their howls claw the sky Whispers follow Shantell Shantell sleeps, tables creak Mirrors start to speak Branches scratch, tap the panes Whispers follow Shantell

The street organ plays Its blithe tune through the town,, Winding down the alleys with the yellow Leaves It meanders down bleak avenues where The copper-green monuments stare At nothing... It passes them by unheard Waltzes with the ribbons of distant winter air The messengers of snow... Moon-struck and gold It croons with the lullbabys that full The babies back to wombs Confuses time with its merry sombre chiming Calling back the old Conjures daughters, lovers, sons Fears, mothers, seasons, minutes Lost and found, lost love, spring and nothing She sings like a bird that wakes up warm And thinks the winter's over The street organ's music is heard For the first time here and the last time There And not at all Cathedral quiet and narcotic seas In a mind of tide-mark memories... The strand of hair that falls in front of her face... He woke up and called out her name But only the street organ answered The street organ plays down every road Moon-struck and gold

Feeling Fine 03:41
Feeling fine now She says She says I'm feeling high now She says She's got the wings of a swan And she moves her arms And she looks at me and she says I'm feeling high now I take a wet cloth and put it on her brow And the sunlight rakes through the room And the dry leaves in the corner whirlpool She reaches out to the books Strokes their spines I'm feeling high now I walked out into the pale withered fields And I thought I don't give that much of a damn just how she feels Then once more in my head I heard her say I'm feeling high now So I looked up to the cold blue sky and shut her out I crossed the frozen brook by the thin birch trees And I thought it was the bluest sky I'd ever seen

about

In spring 2009, And Also The Trees released "When The Rains Come", an acoustic album that compiles fourteen songs selected from throughout the band's history, performed and arranged for voice, acoustic guitar and double bass with the occasional accompaniment of dulcimer, accordion and melodica.

This acoustic eponymous EP contains four songs recorded during the "When The Rains Come" acoustic sessions and two exclusive tracks, "Shantell" and "Feeling Fine".

The vinyl is packaged in a 350gsm brown recycled cardstock sleeve and comes with a four-page booklet which contains Simon Huw Jones' handwritten lyrics for all of the songs, two postcards, a badge - which is exclusive to the release, and a full CD version of the EP housed in a 350gsm brown recycled cardstock cover.

Includes unlimited streaming of And Also The Trees via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
