YOU NEVER LISTEN, DO YOU? Classic you. Well, I guess since we’re both here, I’d like to say: I can’t believe you found that. It was so small, and so at the bottom of the home page of my website, and I’m such a small artist, so it’s ridiculous that you even came to my […]

RESTORE all lyrics and music by jon henry wearing thin/her eyes are dimmer than they were when she was/loving him at 24 years old/and we’re wearing thin/like the pictures in the plastic boxes/in the basement from another world/and they prove that every story ends/i wanna be made new again/restore my soul, restore my soul/restore my […]

EASIER all lyrics and music by jon henry down a lonely hallway in a back room/little place in Pa that’ll be gone soon/you were telling stories bout when you were 22/said it used to be easier/had a little bit of tremor in your hands and voice/but your clear eyes steady like an honest choice/it was […]

RUNNING BACK TO YOU funny how the best things in life/never seem to stay/funny that however hard i try/it always ends the same/funny how the sparkle in your eyes/you just washed away/told you that the best things in life/never seem to stay/but oh, don’t you cry/don’t you call it quits and run away this time/the […]

SPRING like a poplar in the winter I’ve been showing/just exactly where my branches reach their ends/like a pillar in the basement i’ve been holding/onto her and holding strong to where we’ve been/like a tiny wooden figure on the counter/i’ve been feeling awful powerless and small/but the old grandfather clock’s still counting hours/toward the day […]

INDIANA This old town wasn’t much before the war/before the fight/before the loss/so surrender didn’t feel so out of place/The flag waved white/the firing stopped/This old town wasn’t hard to leave behind/with nothing left/to hold onto/but I can’t help this rising feeling in my chest/that I lost myself when/I lost you/Cuz I didn’t mean to […]

The Valley

I had a dream that I was older, and I knew what I didn’t know now. And I feel it when I hold her, there’s so much we have left to figure out. I know the rain is getting colder and the morning brings another cloudy sky, but would you stay here on my shoulder? […]

Love Will Get Me Far

Let’s go now before someone finds us out – wash our hands of all this doubt, and scratch out these letters from the past. We tend to make little worlds of our mistakes – quick to go, slow to escape, cuz we’re scared things get better way too fast.   Maybe all these lesser plans […]

Sister

Tears stain her face as she tries to run away, always refusing to look up. She looks away, still trying to escape all the voices that are telling her to stop. She says she’s independent, she can do this on her own but the walls are closing in as every second passes by. I say […]
