about

Take It With You is a collaborative effort between Waiting on the Dawn, Phalon Thornhill, and Sister Vigilante. It features 8 songs about being lost, being found, and the in-betweens.

Take It With You was recorded in two sessions surrounding a hurricane in late October / early November 2012 in Haledon, New Jersey.

Waiting on the Dawn combines influences such as Neutral Milk Hotel, Sufjan Stevens, and River City Extension, into a sound that fully embraces the folk-rock revival of the 2010's. Diverse instrumentation, lyrics which venture into the concrete and the abstract, and a hint of remembrance all come together in your speakers (or earphones, if you have roommates.)

Phalon Thornhill is an English major and aspiring songwriter who has spent her entire life dedicated to the arts. Time after her studies is spent strumming away on her guitar and writing songs. Her sound is inspired by Corrine Bailey Rae, Troi, and Zee Avi.

Sister Vigilante is a crime fighting nun who records music in her spare time. When she isn't off performing miracles in third world countries, she is usually found making music comparable to Regina Spektor, Bon Iver, Say Anything, and Mumford & Sons. Also, Lamb of God and Meshuggah.

Track Name: Waiting on the Dawn - Waiting on the Dawn
I find that I must carry on
We are just waiting on the dawn
Trying to cross the stormy seas
Trying to find our way back home

Our ships have taken battered hulls
The scars of when we've faltered and we've fell
Marching on amongst the waves
Marching ever forward still

Keep my head held to the sky
And follow constellations to the things I left behind
Years spent at sea are taking their toll on me

And when we come back to our land
We'll hold it in our tired hands
We'll find a rock upon the shore
Welcomed back by our family and our friends

Keep my head held to the sky
And follow constellations to the things I left behind
Years spent at sea are taking their toll on me
Track Name: Waiting on the Dawn - Waltz #1
On the stone steps outside the seminary, you showed me the dangers that this world holds
With each one that passed us we drew in closer
I stopped for fear of being too bold

Though I had wandered, I was not quite lost
The words on your collar, they told me the same thing
That I had once known, that I had once lost

As the night drew onward you showed me the photographs reproduced flawlessly by your hand
You told me your fears, though I did not ask you
You told me secrets about my friends

Though I had wondered, I could not ask
Though you had not known me, you had opened
I stopped to think whether I could back

Though I had wandered, I was not quite lost
The words on your collar, they told me the same thing
That I had once known, that I had once lost
Track Name: Waiting on the Dawn - Evergreen
I remember the day the winter came
We somehow both knew things could never be the same
The ice was thin, and I could hardly speak
It was covered in the finest coat of a velvet purity

And I could hardly see, but you remembered me

It turns out that Ryan was right when he said that we were born into a light
But as we grow it fades
And I remember my dream, but I never realized
I don't know what it was that made you cry

And I could hardly see, but you remembered me

Isn't it wonderful to be evergreen
