about

June Moon is a popstar, poet, and provocateur, and these personas collide under her recording project as Forever. Following a transformative heartbreak, the Montreal artist has signed to Cascine to release her sophomore EP, the characteristically beguiling Close to the Flame. Across the EP, Forever whispers confessions about longing and desire with a featherlight touch, refracting pop with glimpses of trip-hop, downtempo, R&B and house influences — featuring production from Ouri, Patrick Holland (Project Pablo), and Davide Carriere (TOPS). Rejuvenated and ready, Close to the Flame allows Forever to expose the disappointment and despair of romance, as well as the ecstasy of emotional revelation.

Track Name: Blur
You're never going to get Her
She's out of your sight
You’re never going to get Her
She’s out of your sight
Only eyes in your head
There’s only eyes in your head

Heaven has met Her
from Death's despite
All you see is a blur
in the shape of a knife
Only eyes in your head
There’s only eyes in your head

The wings of Her flight
spread far and wide
The water is so pale
upon every tide
Only eyes in your head
There’s only eyes in your head

I know we've got to find away 
into each other's hearts
Aweless lion could not wage
the sum of equal parts
Only eyes in your head
Track Name: Make It Happen (feat. Just John)
When you said, “we're going to make it happen”
for some reason I didn't think twice about it
You misled and so much of my time is spent
re-inventing everything that I lost then

Now that you're gone 
Now that it's over
I can move on, it's time for real change
I would pretend that you were good for me
I can move on, it's time for real change

The person who's with you when you make the switch
Can be a trip to normalize how much they hurt you
For certain I'm over taking every hit
Forgiveness with a smile 

You gotta read between the lines
It's a place to know
There's a new moon on the rise
and you burn just like a star 
Track Name: Devotion
Not a lie
I know
to reach me
you've gotta go
Way up higher
to show me
Trust too far
even though
I'm elevating
inner light
Bless his heart then
baby let go

I don't need
to give you answers
I don't owe you
anything at all
Dominance
Water witch
Centerfolding gown
Satin stitch
with a kiss

When the dove
has flown
what you want is
what you hide
Some unknown
will show me

Stop thinking about
the ways you kneeled for him
There's nothing left to chase
no loose or win
Save something
for the real

A fool can admire 
him taking water to
the flames of my fire
Every suppression
was devotion 
Track Name: Diving Bell Blue
Hold on baby
love's a ride
Hear that echo
fantasizing
You've got me so
heaven's will collide
We're already there

Prophet or the Bride
stop the blood in my veins
High always subsides
there's a flood of rain
Two sides of the night
when you're over it
I'm over it

I said goodbye
now everything is
going to be better
Everything is going
to be fine

I told you no not maybe
Yellow primrose petals from the root
I'm water flow like wavy
I'm darkest hue like navy blue
Diving bell blue
Track Name: Brad
Was it fourteen hours 
or fourteen days?
It last for the longest haze
my empty state
It called me to
confront the
lovers I crowned 
too easy

(What do they say about me?)

I know I gave you life
Through the worst of times
I know and that
will never fade

All about
All around 
Take it slow
Giver seed 
Inside you now
Let it grow
Never doubt 
The way you hold 
Is not to blame 
Felt a key
Unlocked a door
Go in or out 
Left my bags
My empty hands 
Is all I found 

The fantasy
was so contrived
in the ways that I loved
Hell of ashes and 
the wildest cry from
the wildest rain 

Then somebody like you
saw somebody like me
How much can one heart take?
How much can one heart break? 
Track Name: Adonis
The season's over
No looking back
Weight off your shoulders
We break in half

A line in the sand 
an Adonis
The palm of your hand 
offers solace 

Try to be sober
Insomniac 
I'm so hungover
empty 6 pack
