Track Name: The Real Thing
The Real Thing by Jen Lane

As I left for work today
I swore I was missing something
But I don’t think it was the real thing
It was more like I forgot
To wake up this morning
And play it like the real thing

Was it worth it to you?
It sounds like you changed your tune
At the end all it comes down to
Is filling my head with emptiness
She thinks allot about her paper dolls
She wonders if there’s souls behind these walls
That know the secrets to the real thing
She likes to cut up magazines for you
She wants to know just what it means to you
That you’re hungry for the real thing

Was it worth it to you?
It sounds like you changed your tune
At the end all it comes down to
Is filling my head with emptiness
Track Name: Coming Down
Coming Down by Jen Lane

No body knows how bad I needed this to come to my attention
No body knows how bad I just needed some invention, some inspiration
And I knew that you would, get in and drive
When you figured out I had nothing to hide
So lets just coast along at incredible speeds
And I will let you see inside

Take in the night with me I would like to share with you some comfort in taking me in
And when we close our eyes I will disappear into that place where I end and you begin
And I don’t need to try
To come down, down ,down
Cuz I want to come down, down, down

Boy, don’t you know I’m crazy about you
Boy, I would run away with you
You certainly picked where you fit
I can’t fathom the thought of coincidence
Because we come equipped with Songs and matching scars
Yah you seem to fit rite in
Down down down
Down down down

Take in the night with me I would like to share with you some comfort in taking me in
And when we close our eyes I will disappear into that place where I end and you begin
Track Name: Hold On Strong
Hold On Strong by Jen Lane

So much I want to say
Its ok, it can wait
I think its time to close your eyes
Close your eyes, close your eyes
Tighter than you’ve ever
Closed your eyes, Close your eyes
I don’t mind, take your time
Close your eyes

You got to hold on
You got to hold on strong

I know it hurts, it gets much worse
I know you’ll hold on strong

I could spill out my heart
I could still fall apart
But rite now I, I think its time
To close your eyes, close your eyes
Deeper than you’ve ever
Seen the dark, tiny spark
In your eyes, shut so tight
Dream all night


I know it hurts, it gets much worse
I know you’ll hold on strong

I could spill out my heart
I could still fall apart

So much I love you so
So much I can’t let go
Just close your eyes
With me tonight
Close your eyes
Close your eyes.
Track Name: Barely Above Me
Barely Above Me by Jen Lane

You’re walking away
in your yellow shirt
You’re gracefully getting
Into your car
And the next time I see you
the lights will go down
And you’ll be a star
You are barely above me when we’re sitting down
you are at my level when I’m upside down

All I want to know is what your story is and if I’m in it
because every time I try to figure out what you’re thinking I
get lost in it
But I’ll figure it out

My eyes are on you
My songs are in pieces
Your kisses are floating
Around in the air
And as you are shining
I know you’ll go far
I just don’t know where
You are eye to eye when we’re laying down
And you are so far away when I am this proud

All I want to know is what your story is and if I’m in it
because every time I try to figure out what you’re thinking I
get lost in it
But I’ll figure it out

You walk into me house
You remind me of
A superhero
Behind your shades
And as much as your real now
All that was surreal
Only just fades
Track Name: Broken Down Train
Broken Down Train by Jen Lane

Put in my ticket
Lost the bet
Can’t seem to get
Out of my head
But honey I’m trying
In seven hours
And ninety days
I scratched my way out
Of this cage
And crawled back inside

Cuz I’m a bit of a broken down train
But I’m running just the same
I could still take you all the way
To the top of the world

I hear you calling
Wish I could come
But someone’s ringing
Out my lungs
And I’ll be just fine
I don’t mean to
Go away
I’ll come out some
time today and
Apologize

Cuz I’m a bit of a broken down train
But I’m running just the same
I could still take you all the way
To the top of the world

Cuz I’m a bit of a broken down train
Track Name: Call On Me
Call On Me by Jen Lane

Drank half a bottle of whiskey
Don’t know what I needed to prove
Thought that you’d see I felt tiny
Seemed not to mean much to you

Why wont you call on me, call on me now

You put me into your pocket
Next to a five-dollar bill
You may not know but you have got
The power to crush me at will

I know sometimes I should take my own advice
And maybe its late but I ain’t gonna sleep tonight
So baby, I’m coming back to find you this time

Drunk on a bottle of whiskey
It’s nearly quarter to two
Just wanted to say that I’m sorry
for taking it all out on you.

Why wont you call on me, call on me now
Track Name: Spell On You
Spell On You by Jen Lane

She’ll cross the ocean, she’ll jump in the flames
She’s gonna try to find a boy the she can rearrange but
When she got there, mountain high
She never really had it in her to believe she could fly, well

Why the hell are you so sad?
What could have made you all that mad, that it would make you that much happier to never know fore sure?

I’ll cross the ocean; I’ll jump in the fire
Boy, I could bring alive your every sleeping desire
So I’ll just stay back while I’m still small
Just make sure to save a piece of me when I’m tall cuz

I don’t want you to be sad
I’ll try to never make you mad
Just tell me that you would be happier
to never know fore sure.

Don’t you know she put a spell on you
She put a spell on you my boy +2


Why the hell are you so sad?
What could have made you all that mad, that it would make you that much happier to never know fore sure?
Track Name: Long Time Coming
Long Time Coming by Jen Lane

You made me an offer
I couldn’t refuse
You made my heart heavy
Every time you walked in the room
You made me a reason
Laid out your clean towels
You made me breakfast
While I was in the shower

It’s been a long time coming angel
It’s been a long time coming clean
Don’t know how you spread me open
so easily

You made me a song
You made me brand new
You made it worth giving
Everything I had to you
You make my day
Everyday
Lover I knew
I’d be home someday

It’s been a long time coming angel
It’s been a long time coming clean
Don’t want to know how far to go
Its not long enough I know
It’s been a long time coming angel
Its been a long time coming clean
Don’t know how you found all my pieces
So easily
Track Name: So Down
So Down by Jen Lane

Bent over backwards
Head in the sand
Trying to rationalize
With a bully
He’s out getting drunk again
Just go to bed
Before he gets home tonight
And your thinking

I don’t know how I got so down
You turned my world up side down
I don’t know how I got so down

Bobbing for answers
Hands behind your back
You cry into the pillow
Like a baby
He thinks you’ve been on the prowl
Maybe its because
He thinks that you’re just as low
And your thinking

I don’t know how I got so down…
Well its time to turn your world around
And its time to get yourself up off the ground
Time to get yourself unwound
And its time now

Breathe deeply my dear
We’re almost there
Take what’s left of you and just go
Like a warrior
For get the silver mirror
That you held so dear
You’ve got it in you I know

I don’t know how I got so down…
