about

March to May Seattle, Washington

When is the right time to take a chance? Who are the right people? What are the right conditions? It took several chance encounters before March to May's spark hit. But when it did, it didn't take long for them to catch fire. After playing over 50 shows in less than two years, they released their debut album, The Water's Edge, in April 2015. ... more

Track Name: Madeleine
Hey Madeleine, do you live your life
Like a ghost holding on to a time gone by
What would it take to relinquish your pain
That's keeping you down, that's driving you insane

Hey Madeleine, will you ever come home?
To the place that you love, to the place that you know?
You spend your days taming the restless seas
Looking for something to bring you peace

Madeleine, Madeleine,
Turn your boat around
Madeleine, Madeleine,
Keep your feet on the ground
Madeleine, Madeleine,
There's a devil to pay
Madeleine, Madeleine,
You'll live another day

Hey Madeleine, are you drifting the seas
Of a world that is round, a place that is free?
Drop down your anchor, secure your bitter ends
Wait for the dawn, your chance will come again

Madeleine, Madeleine,
Turn your boat around
Madeleine, Madeleine,
Keep your feet on the ground
Madeleine, Madeleine,
There's a devil to pay
Madeleine, Madeleine,
You'll live another day

Madeleine, Madeleine,
Turn your boat around
Madeleine, Madeleine,
Keep your feet on the ground
Madeleine, Madeleine,
There's a devil to pay
Madeleine, Madeleine,
You'll live another day
Track Name: In the Burning Grass
Every time he takes a walk in the burning grass
He closes his eyes
He closes his eyes
And he listens for a faint rumbling
It's far away, it's far away

And he knows that there's no turning back
To how it used to be
To how it used to be
Flowers blossoming in the burning grass
Swaying now
Swaying now

And I find every time I hide, I hide
I lose a part of you, a part of me, and I see
How beautiful life can be...

Every time he takes a walk through the ancient grove
He opens his eyes
He opens his eyes
And he sees the fruit of a thousand years
Standing strong
Standing strong

And I find every time I hide, I hide
I lose a part of you, a part of me, and I see
How beautiful life can be...
Track Name: She
Every time she calls me in the evening
When the light is soft on my skin
Moving through the quiet she's whispering
Tracing lines from places I've been

And she's calling me, ohh...
And she's calling me, ohh...

Every time she walks with me I'm dreaming
Lighting candles in the dark
Running through the valley of memory
Tracing lines from the start

And she's calling me, ohh...
And she's calling me, ohh...

And she's been knocking at my window
She's been calling at my door
She's been dancing in the twilight
Footsteps soft upon the floor

And I could stop and hold her closer
But I can't bear a moment more

And ahhhhh...
Ohh...

Every time she calls me in the evening
With the autumn leaves at my door
I'm turning pages faster than I'm reading them
Could I have just one moment more

But she's calling me, ohh...
She's calling me, ohh...on.
Track Name: 9 Crimes
Leave me out with the waste
This is not what I do
It's the wrong kind of place
To be thinking of you
It's the wrong time for somebody new
It's a small crime
And I've got no excuse

Is that alright with you?
Give my gun away when it's loaded
Is that alright with you?
If you don't shoot it how'm I supposed to hold it
Is that alright with you?
Give my gun away when it's loaded
Is that alright with you?
Is that alright?

Leave me out with the waste
This is not what I do
It's the wrong kind of place
To be cheating on you
It's the wrong time
She's pulling me through
It's a small crime
And I've got no excuse

Is that alright with you?
Give my gun away when it's loaded
Is that alright with you?
If you don't shoot it how'm I supposed to hold it
Is that alright with you?
Give my gun away when it's loaded
Is that alright with you?
Is that alright?

Is that alright yeah...
Is that alright yeah...
Is that alright yeah...
Is that alright, is that alright, is that alright with you...no.
Track Name: The Navigator
Take my words and hold them
Like an anchor through the night
It's a long way back to shore, dear
But I'll hold you in my mind

Ohhh...
Ohhh...

I left you in the winter
When the seas were dark and cold
The seasons touch you softly
But the years have made me old

Ohhh...
Ohhh...
Ohhh...

Take me through the night I'll find my way
Hey...
Take me through the night I'll find my way
Hey...

Guide me by the moonlight
For I cannot see the stars
It's only in my memory
That I'll sail to where you are

Ohhh...
Ohhh...
Ohhh...

Take me through the night I'll find my way
Hey...
Take me through the night I'll find my way
Hey...
Take me through the night I'll find my way
Track Name: Don't Run
Wait for me and face the unseen
Rising up beyond the barricade
Hold on tight, don't run away

Don't run away
Don't run away
Don't run away
Stay with me
Stay with me

Wait to see what lies between
The hiding place and the renegade
Turn around, don't run away

Don't run away
Don't run away
Don't run away
Stay with me
Stay with me

I can read the shadows on your face
Can you hear me calling out your name?
Move through the darkness into grace
And stay with me
stay with me

Don't run away
Don't run away
Don't run away
Stay with me
Stay with me

Don't run away
Don't run away
Don't run away
Stay with me
Stay with me
Track Name: Through the Night
When we awake in the morning
In the morning
Time holds the light changing softly
Changing softly

All night my heart makes its way to the morning
Waits for you on this dark and quiet road
I know, I know
I'll never let you go
And I know, I know
I'll never let you go

When we hear the birds calling
The birds calling
We will great a thousand mornings
A thousand mornings

All night my heart makes its way to the morning
Waits for you on this dark and quiet road
On this dark and quiet road
And I know, I know
I'll never let you go
And I know, I know
I'll never let you go
Track Name: If I Told You I Could Stay
I can see the sound rushing past my windowpane
And the sun breaks through the clouds
I can feel my days racing towards an unknown place
Could you say the same?

Tracing the shape of my road
Finding where it bends, finding where I know
Holding the weight of my load
And finding where it falls

If I told you I could stay
Would you believe me?
If I told you I could stay
Would it make it true?
If I told you I could stay
Would you believe me?

I can hear the wind racing through these empty streets
And the voices gone before
If I could find a way back to the choices I didn't make
Would I choose the same?

Tracing the shape of my road
Finding where it bends, finding where I know
Holding the weight of my load
And finding where it falls

If I told you I could stay
Would you believe me?
If I told you I could stay
Would it make it true?
If I told you I could stay
Would you believe me?

Tracing the shape of my road
Finding where it bends, I feel like I know
Holding the weight of my load
And I can feel it fall

If I told you I could stay
Would you believe me?
If I told you I could stay
Would it make it true?
If I told you I could stay
Would you believe me?
Would you be there too?
Would you be there too?
Track Name: White Rose
Time froze the white rose
That you gave to me
Eyes closed, the night cold
When we said goodbye

Go find your heart
We'll hold our lives apart

Bright glow, the light shone
On the water in between
Time flows and life goes
The rain into the sea

Go find your heart
We'll hold our lives apart

Hold on...
Hold on...
Hold on...
I'm holding on...

Time froze the white rose
That you gave to me
Track Name: Fifty Years
And the diamond ring upon her hand
Shone like banking fires upon the sand
And the years have wiled away
Like rounded stones worn old by past days
And the wind blows open wide
The window that she cannot hide

And the cherry blossoms floating down
Like snow upon the ground
And the cherry blossoms floating down
Like snow upon the ground

Fifty years she knows she carried the weight
Of a love she held to remember the days
And the dust has settled now
The stirring of the winter's crown
And the spring returns the ground
To hope that wakes the fields of brown

And the cherry blossoms floating down
Like snow upon the ground
And the cherry blossoms floating down
Like snow upon the ground
And the cherry blossoms floating down
Like snow upon the ground
And the cherry blossoms floating down
Like snow upon the ground
And the cherry blossoms floating down
Like snow upon the ground
And the cherry blossoms floating down
Like snow upon the ground...
