Track Name: Lie To Me
Lie To Me by Jen Lane

i’m looking out, the window cause, i’m waiting for, you to pull up
at our house, where we live, where we share, all our stuff
why do you, want me to, be so blue, baby blue
come over here and tell me something true

you can lie, lie, lie to me all that you want
you can look me in the eye
you can la de dai to me in the dark
but i can see your thoughts, yeah i can see your thoughts

i miss my old life with you
i miss my old shade of blue
it was dark and light, like the sky at night
when the moon is shining bright

you can lie, lie, lie to me all that you want
you can look me in the eye
you can la de dai to me in the dark
but i can see your thoughts, yeah i can see your thoughts

i’m looking out, the window cause, i’m waiting for, it to let up
Track Name: The Lonely Cricket
The Lonely Cricket by Jen Lane

there’s a lonely, cricket, in my backyard,
he is looking, for a lover, underneath the stars
he’s been there for a while, he’s been standing in line

oh, lonely cricket in the backyard

i think he’s living, by the fishes, underneath that old birch tree
and if he comes back here tomorrow, i think i’ll call him jiminy
he reminds me that i’m good, i do everything i should

oh lonely, oh lonely

pick a spot, sing a song, i will find you, i will bring you home

he’s been there for a while, he’s been standing in line
he reminds me that i’m good, i do almost everything i should

oh lonely, oh lonely, oh lonely, oh lonely

pick a spot, wait for me, sing a song, i’m coming,
i will find you, i will bring you home
Track Name: Grey Skies
Grey Skies by Jen Lane

grey skies are blowing in, it’s getting colder again
blanket frost on riverbed, gets it dark in my head
grey skies are blowing in, the air is hard and it’s thin,
creeping up over my skin, can’t stop my eyes from burning

i’m sleepless, again

grey skies are blowing in, my solar power’s fading
insides filled with chilled cement, can’t seem to say what i meant
grey skies are blowing in, and here we are complaining
in our warm and cozy beds, about goose bumps in the morning

i’m sleepless, again
Track Name: Election Day
Election Day by Jen Lane

i set out on election day, i voted for elizabeth may
and i warned everyone they should stay on my page
but they all sat at home and just waited for change

i would have been happy on election day,
if i’d have been from the united states
oh, cause back in the parliament buildings this time
they’re taking your money, and giving you mine

so i threw up my hands and i shut off the news,
and i moved way up north and became a recluse
and i grew my own food and i shot my own meat
and i never missed all the shit i used to eat

i was free

i set out on election day, i voted for the one with the brains
and i asked all the people to join me in line
they said, “nothing will change girl, you’re wasting your time”
Track Name: Feeling Crazy
Feeling Crazy by Jen Lane

will you help me to let go, if i say i will,
i don’t know if i can go, another day still
holding on, holding on

lift me up where the angels sing and say a little prayer for me,
tell me not to worry anymore about these things
letting go, it’s hard, letting go

well i heard of this before, now it’s me here on the floor,
feeling crazy, feeling crazy

standing on that mountain edge, i saw the water there
i took a leap of faith into a hundred miles of air
and i, was fine, yeah i, i was alright

cause i heard of this before, now it’s me here on the floor
feeling crazy, feeling crazy
Track Name: I Got You
I Got You by Jen Lane

you can be mine if you wanna be, you can be high as you wanna be
and if you like i might set you free, you’ll see

i see your shadow up on the wall, in the blue light you stand ten feet tall
you’ll wake me up when the morning calls, to a new life and

i watch the people, going by
the harder they run, the faster time flies
and the thing that they can’t seem to change
they’re still sad at the end of the day,
but i got you

i can be yours if you want me to, build you a house, paint it white and blue
take your last name when i marry you, take you
we’ll hit the road again the next day, maybe this time we can ride the plain
either way baby it’s all the same, home is where you are

i watch the people, going by
the harder they run the faster time flies
and the thing that they can’t seem to change
they’re still sad at the end of the day,
but i got you
Track Name: Today I Lost My Mind
Today I Lost My Mind by Jen Lane

today i lost my mind and i’m afraid i cannot find it,
oh today i lost my mind and now my baby’s gone again

today i lost my head, a guitar pick and my patience
some lyrics and a working pen, when my baby was gone

lately i just wanna take you to a show
lately i just wanna call you on the phone

today i lost my sense and now you know things i can’t stand
but baby when i lost my sense, i wasn’t mad at you

lately i just wanna take you to a show
lately i just wanna call you on the phone
Track Name: Sad Sad Song
Sad Sad Song by Jen Lane

pickin’ up the pieces put ‘em back together clever as we were we never really figured out
that everything we ever said and everything we ever did is gonna find us somehow

in a sad sad place, in a sad sad state
in this tiny space, out there

it’s always been a bumpy ride sometimes i even find it’s hard to wanna open up my eyes
the more i see the more i get mad, the more i feel the more i wanna get back inside

in a sad sad place, in a sad sad state,
in this tiny place, out there

pick it up put it in your pocket zip it up and lock it don’t tell your closest friends
take it home try to figure out what’s wrong put it in a song it makes sense

we’re in a sad sad place, in a sad sad state, in this tiny space
in a sad sad place, in a sad sad state, in this tiny space
Track Name: Earthquake
Earthquake by Jen Lane

sitting in my blue room, i was thinking of you
thought you could use a blue room too
maybe a front step to gather your thoughts at,
sort em’ out one by one

you’re out of time, don’t you see everything is not fine
you’ve got no love left to give, don’t you worry about your kids
i’ve heard it all before

you picked your ground, you stand proudly on it,
this time will be different
when the ground breaks open, you pour yourself out in,
such a way you make it fit

you’re out of line, don’t you think you should change your mind
for all the time that you spent, feeling spread out thin and hell bent
on the same things as before

do, do, do

you’re out of time, don’t you see everything is not fine
you’ve got no love left to give, don’t you worry about your kids
i said you’re out of line, don’t you think you should change your mind
for all the time that you spent, feeling spread out thin and hell bent
on the same things as before

do, do, do

sitting in my blue room, i was thinking of you
thought you could use a blue room too
Track Name: Tough Love
Tough Love by Jen Lane

you’ve been sittin’ here, for nearly forty years
turning whiskey into tears, turning whiskey into tears
i know that you’re hard like that, that’s why I got your back,
but if you wanna just relax, i’ll be in the back yard

there is, so much, i need to remind you of
i guess, it takes, a lotta tough love
i do declare that i’m done
till you decide to bring me home

you’re pullin’ everything out by the roots, you’re taking your turn i guess
but you try to be thoughtful, cause thoughtful is best, but these days
you can’t find your way out, i know you’re on to something but right now
i think that you might just need to be,

someone else, something more, not like you, something more

cause there is, so much, i need to remind you of
and i guess, it takes, a lotta tough love
i do declare that i’m done
till you decide to bring me home
Track Name: End Of The Line
End Of The Line by Jen Lane

all the king’s horses, and all of his men,
couldn’t put me back together again
but i’m kind of elated, that i’ve become a little jaded,
because i’ve won, it is what i made it anyway

at the end of the line, you’ve been waiting there for quite sometime
while i was outside, smoking cigarettes and drinking wine, you were on my mind

i was out on a wire, i felt numb, i thought i could fly
and so i jumped, and to my surprise i hit the ground
but when i woke up, i saw your face, you were still looking up
but that’s ok cause you won’t get enough of what you found


at the end of the line, you’ve been waiting there for quite sometime
while i, was outside, smoking cigarettes and getting high, you were on my mind

don’t be late, oh, don’t be late, i’m already here

at the end of the line, you’ve been waiting there for quite sometime
while i was outside, smoking cigarettes and drinking wine, at the end of the line,
by the fire, smoking cigarettes and drinking wine, you were on my mind
Track Name: For The Night
For The Night by Jen Lane

what would you think
if i stayed out in the backyard
what would you do if i wanted to
stay there all night with you
oh darlin’, what would you say
if i told you we were in space
and that the stars, they were all ours,
for the night

for the night
Track Name: Angie
Angie
Angie, Angie, when will those clouds all disappear?
Angie, Angie, where will it lead us from here?
With no loving in our souls and no money in our coats
You can’t say we’re satisfied
But Angie, Angie, you can’t say we never tried

Angie, You’re beautiful, but ain’t it time we said good-bye?
Angie, I still love you, remember all those nights we cried?
All the dreams we held so close seemed to all go up in smoke
Let me whisper in your ear.
Angie, Angie, where will it lead us from here?
Solo 2x

Oh Angie don’t you weep, all your kisses still taste sweet
I hate that sadness in your eyes
But Angie, Angie, ain’t it time we said good-bye?
Solo 1x

With no loving in our souls and no money in our coats
You can’t say we’re satisfied

Bridge
But Angie , I still love you baby
Everywhere I look I see your eyes
There ain’t a woman that comes close to you
Come on Baby, dry your eyes

But Angie, angie, ain’t it good to be alive?
Angie, Angie, they can’t say we never tried
