lyrics

When I am home I write songs about you
I write songs about you when I'm lying in bed
When I'm out on the road I write songs about home
I write songs about things I wish I had

But there's time enough for me
There's hope yet still I know it's true
I'll take my time to choose
Time to see, my time to lose
To lose

Oh the body is a wonder, bones regrow when they break
Bones regrow when they break but a heart, does it heal?
Oh and I've got both, broken leg broken heart
I can't love, I can't walk, I just sit around

But there's time enough for me
There's hope yet still I know it's true
I'll take my time to choose
Time to see, my time to lose
To lose

And sometimes things work out when I've worked really hard
But though I work really hard, some things just aren't meant to be
And victory is neat, but failure comes sweetly
Failure comes sweet when I've worked really hard

And there's time enough for me
There's hope yet still I know it's true
I'll take my time to choose
Time to see, my time to lose
To lose

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
