lyrics

Sometimes love doesn't know where to grow
Like a daffodil poking through a dirt gravel road
I was the last daughter gone to the lights of downtown
I saw a tear on his face when the whole place burned down

I met him there as the fire began
A foolish girl in the arms of a dangerous man
But he was gentle and proud when the doctor saw you
You had a face from my dreams that I already knew

Some love is patient
Some love calls down the telephone wire
Some love you just can't contain
It burns like a wildfire

His trade took us west when you were just three
I made a pledge to protect and deceive
Oh I lied when your dad went out with his gun
I said that he was the good guy and that good always won

Some love is patient
Some love calls down the telephone wire
Some love you just can't contain
It burns like a wildfire

And that train derailed on the fourteenth of June
I shook with the news that my words had come true
Those good men got away with their money intact
Left my true love dying on the edge of the tracks

Some love is patient
Some love calls down the telephone wire
Some love you just can't contain
It burns like a wildfire

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
