Jason and Jaime met as actors. Two bands, 3 albums and several Canadian and UK tours later, APRIL MOON emerged. The pair decided to head to a corner of the world they had fallen in love with on previous visits- the Northwest of England. They released their first, full length album in 2014. Love!

Track Name: My Lost Year
Lyrics and music by Jason Moon

I see you're feeling low
Come sit by me and join the show
We'll play away those blues
Then we'll put on our outside shoes
Let's go down to the sea
I'll become you, you'll change to me

My lost year
Disappears

You look so beautiful
When sunlight drips down to the world
It makes your hair all shine
I can't believe that you are mine
You built this world for us
We'll fill it up with sweet, sweet love

My lost year
Disappears
The end is near
Of my lost

Year by year the lines behind my ears
Get deeper and more clear
If happiness has taken over here
We'll spread it out my dear
As sadness disappears

Some day they'll understand
We'll see them holding out their hands
Enough for everyone
Once they all see what we become

And my lost year
Disappears
My lost year
The end is near
Track Name: My List Of Living Things
Lyrics and music by Jason Moon

On my list of living things that I haven't yet destroyed
There is room for your name, for your name
And if you don't think I mean every single word I say
Then you never really knew me at all

Well I took the rain away and you hate me to this day
Throwing fire after me as I fall
But her water's rushing free, it's becoming one with me
So I guess it really wasn't yours after all

I had no air, I couldn't breathe
Till she gave me what I need (she gave me what I need)
I can fly, I've got wings, I was made for better things
And you never really knew me at all

All the pain that I have brought to the ones I love the most
Will rain down a hundred fold over me
But if I can drink your poison with a smile upon my face
Then I'll leave here as a child after all

This rough beast, it spreads a chill as it slouches through the world
I won't sit here while it's shadow covers me
I can fly, I've got wings, I was made for better things
And you never really knew me at all
Track Name: Southport
Lyrics by Jaime April
Music by Jason Moon

Oh give me peace Southport
Wipe my slate all clean
As I arrive in Southport
I find the grass all green

No one knows us in Southport
We'll pick our own name
We're the Jones's in Southport
We make up the game

We crawled out of the sea and built our castle in the sand
Before it pulled us back we felt you take us by our hands

Let it rain in Southport
Wash my troubles away
The sun will shine in Southport
Set fire to my day

Fill my cup in Southport
Right up to the brim
I'll take a step back in Southport
So I can start again

Now I can sense the darkness waiting just offshore
But I found my home, I found my home, I found my own front door

My sweet love's in Southport
Breathing sweet sea air
Take a ride out of Southport
A piece of me stays there

All aboard for Southport
All aboard that train
Track Name: Mr. Jones's Children
Lyrics and music by Jaime April

Freshly they wander a world full of wonder
Beauty and music and sun
Batting innocent eyes at the overcast skies
With a wisdom that comes from no one

They floated around for years in this town
But no one has seen them before

Mr Jones what have you done to your children?
They're not like me, they're like the trees
Mr. Jones what have you done to your children?
They blew in like a fresh summer breeze
They blew in just like a fresh summer breeze

Adorned in bright colours and beads they go dancing
Seems like they're walking on air
With soft music playing and their bodies swaying
The gold dust just falls from their hair

Magical charms make it hard to believe
They're not from the stars or the sea

Mr. Jones what have you given your children?
Not your eyes, not your hair
No, I think you cast a spell on your children
And brought them in like a fresh breath of air
You brought them in just like a fresh breath of air

The smiles on the faces of those who surround them
Bask in the cosmic delight
Our eyes full of light as the stars all collide
Exploding to start up the night

Mr Jones what have you done to your children?
They're not like me, they're like the trees
Mr. Jones what have you done to your children?
They blew in like a fresh summer breeze
Track Name: Call On Me
Lyrics by Jaime April
Music by Jason Moon

When I'm standing as tall as the sky
I can see where the darkness lies
When you're by my side I'll make the darkness hide
You can call on me

I'm invincible when I'm with you
This super human strength shines on through
You want the world on your plate, I'll help you lift that weight
Cause you can call on me

I'll give you colour from black and white
Your love gives me X-ray sight
Bad guys never win when you look within
Cause you can call on me

This world can be lonely, we wear masks to hide
But I feel like I can conquer the world with you by my side

Sing to the sun if you're in need
I'll be there with lightning speed
Yeah, I'll race cross the land just to take your hand
Cause you can call on me
Track Name: Love Song
Lyrics and music by Jason Moon

When you're asked to write a love song
Oh, what choice do you have?
It's a way to get behind the front lines of the advance
So a light goes on in the upstairs room
And you sit down to write a love song

This place just has a way of pulling you apart
And she's taking on each day miles away from your heart
Then the light goes on over the microphone
You begin to play a love song

I guess she was thinking this was the way to mend it all
But we spent so much time building that wall
If there's life behind the black of a funeral veil
Maybe we'll find it, maybe we'll find it

So the words have made their way from the paper to the fray
Just weaving through the battle til they found the safest way
And a light goes on in the city tonight
She sits down to hear a love song

And a light goes on in the city tonight
She sits down to hear a love song

She sits down to hear her love song
Track Name: Jungle Drums
Lyrics and music by Jaime April

They heard it on the jungle drums
A story 'bout me and a story 'bout you
As it travels down the telephone line
Sometimes I'm red sometimes I'm blue

Don't worry flower, you haven't lost your bloom
Long as the sea has fish and the sky has a moon
Listen to love, and let it have it's way
Don't fill your pretty little head with the things they say

A tree on fire burns so bright
When the winds of change start to blow
Sparks will burn the forest down
So the next small seed can start to grow

Don't worry flower, you haven't lost your bloom
Long as the sea has fish and the sky has a moon
Listen to love, what does it want today?
Don't fill your pretty little head with the things they say

Broken bones from sticks and stones
They can't break our spirit
A whispered word will fade away
And I won't even hear it

We'll send it on the jungle drums
A story 'bout you and a story 'bout me
Story 'bout love in a goldfish bowl
A story 'bout the Irish Sea

Don't worry flower, you haven't lost your bloom
Long as the sea has fish and the sky has a moon
Listen to love, and let it have it's way
Don't fill your pretty little head with the things they say
Track Name: No Time No Place
Lyrics by Jason Moon and Jaime April
Music by Jason Moon

The stars, they light up the night
Do they still burn as bright in the afternoon light
Somewhere beyond the blue I know that they do

Where I fall will sweet flowers grow
Will my love sit and dream where I lie
Will I be the rain on her face if I'm no time, no place

With each beat of my boot on the earth
I feel my pulse in the ground
No matter how loud, this gathering crowd
Nobody can block out the sound

This is happening now
We walk as the wind screams us down
Take hold my hand if you're scared, we're going nowhere

A shadow, a ghost from away
Stands in between us again
But it's real as a daydream in May when you're no time, no place

While the world rushes on in it's way,
I'm no time, no place
Track Name: Outside Looking In
Lyrics and music by Jason Moon

You live in a different world than I do
Where everything is beautiful and possible
Where we don't have to compromise to win
And I am on the outside looking in

Your house is filled with many flowers
And every single one of them is you
And I just wouldn't know where to begin
'cause I am on the outside looking in

New grass is growing through the crack in the sidewalk
And everything that's old is new again
Here I am so afraid of changing
I'm so afraid of changing

Your smile is worth the price I'm paying
'cause every single thought I have is you
And even though I know that I won't win
I'll be on the outside looking in
Yes I'll be on the outside looking in
Track Name: Evil Clutches
Lyrics and music by Jaime April

Intoxicated by your stale perfumes
Tell me your secrets, show me the way
Put on your costume and hypnotize me
I'll do anything you say

Save me from the evil clutches of cheap temptation
Save me from the evil clutches of angry demons

Bring out your tassels and velvet garments
You show me yours and I'll show you mine
I've been a sinner and I will be punished
You choose the rules and I'll pour the wine

Whip me, hurt me, I like to suffer baby, you like control
Save me from the evil clutches of free desire

Take me to your palace in Rome and we'll see
The jesters and kings and then we
Can go dancing all through the night
We'll give your father a fright (yes we will)

And then go to Nero's live circus show
Caligula up from below
The lion eats the little boy
They've taken away all of his joy (yes they have)

Trust in me
Follow me

See how they bow (bow right down)
See how they kneel (kneel on the ground)
See how they judge (judge their sins
See how they blame (blame you and me)
See how they shake (shake their hips)
See how they dance (dance the twist)
See how they plead (plead for their lives)
See how they beg (beg for a wife)
See how they cry (cry to the sky)
See how they lie
Track Name: Play
Lyrics and music by Jason Moon

My girl wants to live inside a cowboy movie
She thinks I wouldn't understand
As a matter of fact, I think I'll buy her the hat
Cause I'm gonna do whatever I can

My baby likes to spend her days just dreaming
Well I don't mind at all
Just as long as she saves one dream for me
So I can have a place to fall

Cause there's people I know
Who's hearts are cold like the snow
And they're freezing me with all their words
She kisses me nice
And melts all the ice
She tells me that we own the world

So if my girl wants to live inside a cowboy movie
That's what we'll play
We'll get Buffalo and Kid, strap our guns on our hips
And we'll run and play the day away

Sometimes I'm not alright
And the light ain't so bright
Cause I'm tumbling into the black
She kisses me nice
And melts all the ice
My baby always brings me back

So if my girl wants to go out on a starlight ocean
With a moonbeam for a sail
I'll take her little hand and lead her down to the sand
And we'll sit and dream the night away
