Golden Age 03:37
it's our golden age, our golden age it's our golden age, our golden age is here creation would stumble, unable to be more clear the days we long for are here and i want you all to know i love you so
How It Fades 04:00
lookin out for something golden along the way to keep the sea at bay anything to concentrate maybe we can never know these things we love so well but the music never leaves the dusk and the dawn and the memories the edges disappear i know this is how it fades steal another hour along the way of burnished gold, the light of day stay the riot of your heart i know this is how it fades evermore and away evermore and away
they'll know right away when i speak of you there are things that cannot be improved the long ago forgotten day the uneven ground that marks our way don't pretend to understand you gotta press this world with your own hands like snowfall spanning our whole lives who we are comes in common time
our hearts will hover luminous clouds in a soaring sky i hear your voice and what you were saying and watch as the clouds roll by and if it all changed would you take account would it matter then i am not afraid i will not be afraid to love again
Lily Mozelle 02:28
hollerin' out to anyone who would lend an ear or lend a hand and i'll keep my promise once it's done once that bright day is come when we're on our way home you don' have to carry it all alone don't you be fooled you'll depend on me every bit as much as i will depend on you and i must become the memory of so long ago it may not square with the way i see but i see well enough to know that we're on our way home these deep shadows on the land over barren rock and old oak stand make me wish with all my heart that you were here again everything can break a human heart as gentle of a thing as it's known to be but i kept my promise from the start and now i can see that we're on our way home
if you think well of me i will work to make it true with a sleepless hand i'll do everything i can for you with something akin to grace we'll find what it takes we've earned what we are now we've gathered all these things to us we try to leave no tracks but we have raised our fair share of dust what's passed, cast astride with the half-truths and iron-pride
Anyway 04:41
make your choice let it be the one you need don't lose your way just for any old thing it's not what you thought not what you wanted to see but spring in the land and light in the day wasn't it good anyway? distant rumble, tattered and scared no way to make it fair what remains of who we are and what's left of how we cared? slow down, steady now and be here in this place hit your stride in your own time who's watching any way?
Sign of Life 03:28
if you wanted to tell me that you love me i'd be so happy to hear nothing, no nothing would be sweeter than those words fallin' on my ear and if you wanted to tell me that you love me i just wouldn't know what to say i've been dreaming of something like that for a long time and i'd be swept away a sign of life a love to cling to a future bright as me and you
proud as we are wonderful though it may be would you believe this was never me chase 'em out shovel their footsteps from the way i turn a blind eye you do whatever it takes when the fields come calling me that old feeling takes hold we'll spend our time in weightless things and turn the leaden hour gold turn around and track yourself down bring it all into the light i can still remember how you colored the empty night you speak to me of the clouds and of the sun but you never know, you never know what should be left undone...


“Our golden age is here,” Daniel Martin Moore sings on the title track of his latest offering, and he could easily be singing about his own career. Moore has steadily gained a following as one of our most emotive and haunting singers since his acclaimed debut back in 2008. Those deeply moving vocals are pushed to new heights on Golden Age, which he coproduced with Jim James of My Morning Jacket.

Golden Age manages to be a lament but also hopeful at the same time. For Moore the album is very much about “the nature of togetherness and how our perspective shifts when we lose someone, when we gain someone.”
