lyrics

Time
You never had enough of it
You were always calling it quits
When the getting got good
Your little rose
Wilting in a glass case on the stairs
But you're acting like you don't care

Are you gonna die an untouched flower?
It's been many long years chasing boys around the block
And there's no blame in wanting to keep a man at bay
But if you're sad 'cause you are lonesome
Why don't you ask one of them to stay?

Dreams
Of his hand running up your thigh
Running like an electric wire
Oh but you got scared
Of trust
That little game that no one plays
But tell me how they all have the queen of spades up in their sleeve

And are you gonna die an untouched flower?
It's been many long years chasing boys around the block
And there's no blame in wanting to keep a man at bay
But if you're sad 'cause you are lonesome
Why don't you ask one of them to stay?
Why don't you ask one of them to stay?

And there's no blame in wanting to keep a man at bay
But if you're sad 'cause you are lonesome
Why don't you ask one of them to stay?
Stay

Each tune represents an aching, a longing, and the snapshot the record offers into the musical soul of Jen Starsinic is startling; this young woman is most certainly a rising voice in contemporary Americana. ... more
