about

Gravity Wing is a science fiction love story told through a novel and soundtrack.

Isabel is offered an artistic residency on the planet of New Canada, but beginning again on a new world proves difficult. Unexpectedly invited to a lavish society event, she meets the taciturn Serge and is swept off her feet under an unfamiliar sky. As Isabel and Serge dance in a sci-fi minuet around their feelings, they face the full force of the young planet's rigid social expectations.

Track Name: Gravity Wing
Gravity wing
Underneath a starry tapestry
You swoop in and obscure the stars
Cut their light off over me

Gravity wing
Feathers brushing my heartstrings
Metal feathers in the air
I don't know what this will bring

If I stay
Gravity will sway
Pulling on my heart
Taking me away

I don't know
What this night will bring
What my heart will sing
If I can withstand
The pull of you


Gravity wing
Shaping space in such a way
That I cannot fly away
Pulling from my heart a song
That is all an era long
I cannot escape your grasp
For it is my hand you clasp
In a certain urgency
I cannot withstand
The pull of you

- Clio Em
Track Name: Dresses
I have a wardrobe full of fancy dresses
I don't know what to do with them all
I have a wardrobe full of fancy dresses
They're the colours of the spring and the fall

But there's no spring or fall in this place
Only the long winter, summer briefly shows her face
But I have a wardrobe full of fancy dresses
And I'm going to wear one to the ball.

I used to say a ball is not my thing
I'd rather swing dance in the hall
But ever since I met him I've learned to love to dance
I'm all about romance, I've grown wings

There was that wonderful snow-filled night
Under the stars where we took flight
And I have a wardrobe full of fancy dresses
And I'm going to wear one to the ball.

I want to dance with him under the stars
Spinning into my reverie
I want to fly out over the snow
swooping down low
Like a raven in spring
Spreading her wings

Track Name: Green
Green has always been my favourite colour.

This shade reminds me of the conifer trees

In the valleys, here in the New Rockies 

When viewed through falling snow.

Track Name: Joyeux jour de l'amour
Quand les amants
Patinant a deux
Replissent le soir
Des airs joyeux

Si tous les voeux
Du monde entier
Se pouvaient faire
Notre realité

C'est le joyeux jour
C'est le joyeux jour
de l'amour.

Et quand mon coeur
Mon coeur est plein
De tout ton être
Je prends ta main

Si tous mes voeux
Se réalisaient
Je pourrais prendre
Ton coeur entier

C'est le joyeux jour
C'est le joyeux jour
de l'amour.

Mais tu t'envoles
Tu te dégages
De mon balcon
Dans les nuages

Quand tu t'en vas
Tu prends mon ombre
Quand tu me manques
Je suis plus sombre

C'est le joyeux jour
C'est le joyeux jour
de l'amour.

Track Name: Orca Smile
Orca smile
it's been a while since you smiled at me
Orcas playing in the icy sea
Do you miss me?

Orca smile
What a great name for a cafe
I could just sit here all day
Thinking of you.

Even when you're far away
I think of you and I smile inside
Even when the miles are wide
And distances are deep

And I know that it's been a while
And I really miss you darling
And I'm going to see you soon
Kiss you under the gravity wing

If we can't have the moon.

Track Name: Milo and Celestine
Milo and Celestine
Lived in the garden among the green
Feeding off fairydust
Chasing the butterflies they'd seen

They never felt the cold
Of the great winter outside
Their only worry was
Finding a good place in the garden to hide.

Milo and Celestine
Sweet little friends without care
Celestine and Milo
Sweet little friends without cares in the world
Watching the plants as the fern fronds unfurled
Around them.

Milo and Celestine
You'll never know what you are
Cats chasing butterflies
In a garden that orbits a distant star.

- Clio Em
Track Name: Aria
The opera house is on fire.

When the fire begins to die
In the ruins, bitterly I cry.

All around the ruins stand.
In the ruins, hand in hand.

The opera house is on fire.

- Clio Em
Track Name: Borrowed
Borrowed passages and rooms
Where I carve myself some time
And I gather borrowed blooms
These gray flowers catch my eye.

If I see a scrap of sun
I will pluck it from the sky.
I will keep it for my own
Far from home I learn to fly.

Fly, little heart
I don't know where I'm going in the dark.
Fly, up above
The planet I am circling, I'll depart
Go home
But I can't.

Now I walk into the room
Scattering the blooms around
And I read the words you wrote
Those same words you read out loud.

Little heart you're stuck with me
Underneath this borrowed sky.
I will keep it for my own
Far from home I learn to fly.

Fly, little heart
I don't know where I'm going in the dark.
Fly, up above
The planet I am circling, I'll depart
Go home
But I can't.

Little heart,
But I can't.
