Must We? - Inspired by the art of Tiffany DiGiacomo

from by Shayfer James



Tiffany DiGiacomo:

"March of Crows" is an interdisciplinary collaborative project devised by singer-songwriter Shayfer James. The first "March Of Crows" is collaboration between Shayfer, 16 visual artists, 3 Poets, a director, a Choreographer a lighting designer, and videographer. All based out of Jersey City.

The process begins with visual art. Shayfer has written 16 songs using the work of local artists as prompt. The task was to not only communicate the art through words, but also by incorporating different styles and textures to capture the life of the work.


You say you have to leave me
You've done all you can
The bells are clattering on sixth street
But you're not a holy man
What have I done to lose you
But be the creature that I am
Where will you go
How will I find you?

Must we
Must we say?

Should I believe in something?
After you've gone
Will I grow old and good for nothing
but hoping for too long?
What can I say to keep you
From moving on
Where will you go
How will I find you?

What have the days done to you
To make you leave behind such wreckage?
What have the days done to you
To make you run with stuttered step?
