Digital distribution 2020 Projekt Records. Written, performed, and produced by Paulina Fae. 

"Sleep beneath our branches; let us weave your dreamcatcher. Chase away the fear within, pulling madness into soil.” 

The 11-song collection from THE SECRET LANGUAGE OF TREES is introspective ethereal dream pop rooted in an electronic tapestry of earthly delicacy and fruited with silky vocals. Each song holds a grounding vibrational frequency designed to stimulate intuition and inner-healing. 

The songs were written for THE SECRET LANGUAGE OF TREES, a book of illustrated lyrical stories accompanied by its own original soundtrack. Through visuals and song, it's an introspective experience told from the perspective of trees, their elementals, and their animal companions. 

Trees are gateways between dimensions, bringers of knowledge, and workers of magic. In a network of sound and vibration, they communicate in a language heard and felt within. They're generous with their energy, and hold powerfully healing properties. The messages shared through the book and music are intended to activate joy and enhance creativity, helping us grow into the most vibrant versions of ourselves.

LULLABY
We have brought a lullaby
With haunted hearts to pacify
Little lost souls to mystify
This is how we beautify
In this darkness we are calm
Shake the dirt and run along
We will hunt for you tonight
Tangled arms to hold you tight
Heart is twisting on the limb
Branches playing violin
Dreaming softly with the wind
Edging 'round to meet our kin
We have brought a lullaby
With haunted hearts to pacify
Little lost souls to mystify
This is how we beautify

BURIED KEYS
Patterns fashioned
By love reaction
Light code creation
Soul elevation
Signals generate
Guided arrangements
Building fractals
New formulations
Seeds are buried keys
Unlocking lifeblood dreams
Dream conversations
Root recreations
Light code inspection
Memory reflection
Signals calculate
Guided locations
Building passages
New aspirations
Seeds are buried keys
Unlocking lifeblood dreams

SILENT VOICES
From the pale haze of the afterglow
We chase away the nightmares
From the wild heart of the tornado
Spinning into somewhere
We are the silent voices
Kindling fires in the second earth
We are the silent voices
Heard from worlds away
From the life spark of the appleseed
Doctoring the matrix
From the wild heart of the banshee
Everything is changing
We are the silent voices
Kindling fires in the second earth
We are the silent voices
Heard from worlds away

ROOT SIGNALS
Carving pathways
Stretching lightwaves
Underground constellations
Reconstruct complexity
Le soleil is quieting
La luna is transpiring
Root signals run deep
Deeper than we ever dreamed
Activating sunfire veins
Devising new ways to behave
Drawing down the shine
To a lair of life divine
Le soleil is quieting
La luna is transpiring
Root signals run deep
Deeper than we ever dreamed

THE PASSION OF SLEEP
Externalize the sublime
From the labyrinth of our minds
O so deep we sleep
Guarding secrets in our heartbeats
Seek what is underneath
External self reality
How we dream is how we speak
Within the passion of sleep
 
THE DREAMING WAY
All the stars become leaves
Light dissolves into the green
The winds reveal the dreaming way
What do you see within the trees
What do you feel beyond the scene
When we sway you to sleep
Reality snaps at the seams
The winds reveal the dreaming way
What do you see within the trees
What do you feel beyond the scene
 
LET US TAKE YOUR SORROW
We are the sky
Warming you with stars
Sleep beneath our branches
Let us weave your dreamcatcher
Chase away the fear within
Pulling madness into soil
Isn't it good to know
You're never ever alone
Isn't it? It's good to know
You're never ever alone
We are the stars
Warming you with sky
Let our branches shield you
Let us be your chapel
Our leaves dry your eyes
Let us take your sorrow
Isn't it good to know
You're never ever alone
Isn't it? It's good to know
You're never ever alone
Never ever

TWISTED HEART
Twigs and bones
Torn and broken
Nerve control
Sprawling carefully
Back to life
Fire and ice
Back to life
With this twisted heart
Falling up
Round and round
Inside out
Crawling carefully
Back to life
Fire and ice
Back to life
With this twisted heart

BREATHE
Surrender
And take root
Activate
A new landscape
Breathe in
Becoming crystalline
Breathe out
Simplify eternal high
Disentangle
Let yourself go
Purify
Pull in the sky
Breathe in
Becoming crystalline
Breathe out
Simplify eternal high
Tranquilize
Take your time
Energize
Release the sky

THE RINGS OF EARTH AND SKY
Orbiting the gridline
An earthen loop in wired minds
A compass for the castaway
To a hidden getaway
The scale of known aligns
The rings of earth and sky
The gateway circuits by
The rings of earth and sky
Tendrils of the vortex
Coil over twisted steps
Losing track somewhere inbetween
While we were counting rings
The scale of known aligns
The rings of earth and sky
The gateway circuits by
The rings of earth and sky

SACRED SPACE
Light the fire within
Join the spectral dance
Climb into our sacred space
In a hug of cosmic trance
Fly with us
Let's escape
Fly with us
Over everyplace
Climb with us
In our sacred space
Light the fire within
Charged beneath the storm
Climb into our sacred space
In a hug of cosmic warm
Fly with us
Let's escape
Fly with us
Over everyplace
Climb with us
In our sacred space
