Live Life
Finally the sun here is shining
But I don’t want to go outside
’Cause everything I have here is hurting
And I just want to live life
Finally I have all a lonely girl could want
But it’s not exactly true love that I’ve caught
Feels like we’re living in all that I’m not
And I just want to love love
I just want to love love
Trapped inside looking out
Trapped outside looking in
Wanting to begin
So I decide not to decide
And just Live Life
Finally I’ve come half way home
Between the warm city and the grey cold
But I’m not too happy being stuck in between
When all I am looking for is God
Now all I’ve wanted is gone
Finally I have all a lonely girl could want

West from Carolina
All my dreams come true
This road leads back to you
Passing at the speed of light
Paved the way to make wrongs right
And I had to be tough to open up
Leave the leaves down the road
Kicking up dust in the rear view mirror
All roads turn west from Carolina
All premonitions come true
This parking lot was built for two
Mecca in the middle of hell
Doesn’t matter where we dwell
The sun, the sun the sun
Keeps the winter away
The sun the sun the sun
Keeps the blues from coming back
I follow you there
All roads turn west from Carolina
All roads turn west

Highway 40
A tired old transmission started talkin’ outside of Tulsa
But when you travel all alone and there’s no one there to stop ya
And freedom doesn’t feel that free, when desperation is all you believe
Desperation’s just the darker side of being free
And loneliness is only a condition, not the whole of me
I’m so tired of being free, won’t someone come and fly with me
Flyin’ down Highway 40
Some they get themselves tied down like a steer going off to slaughter
Others love the chance they finally gave themselves to be a father
Some they dream while they mow their lawn
Thinking their freedom is somehow gone, they don’t know how lucky they are
At least they got a place to park the car
’Cause when it’s raining, when it’s snowing and you don’t know just where you’re going
Take some comfort in the knowin’ that someone’s waiting up for you
’Cause if I disappeared right now, perhaps my friends might miss me
But if I go on home right now, there’s no one there to kiss me
I’m so tired of being free, won’t someone come and fly with me
Flyin’ down Highway 40

Leap of Faith (for Sandy, and for Uncle Ted)
It takes rain, sunshine, and earth
To turn a seed to a flower and give it birth, give it birth
I waited my whole life for all three to shine
It never did, it never did
Takes courage strength and faith
To turn a life of loneliness to one that’s ready
But when I asked God for my miracle
It never came, no it never came
Sometimes it takes a leap of faith
When there’s no one to catch you
Sometimes it takes a leap of faith
You don’t know your parachute
Sometimes it takes a leap of faith
You just fall, fall, fall, and that’s all
Beautiful, I love you, but I can see it’s coming down
Please don’t hate me for not giving you the chance
You will never dance, or know your other half
Wednesday comes with an update
Thursday seems to come a little too late
For all you’ve had to endure
We know what you’re waiting for
To take that leap of faith
Lovely, how you make me laugh
More lovely, how you have my back-you know that
You’re the sunshine that made me grow
Thought you should know I don’t want to see you go

John Denver’s Ghost (for the folks in the great state of Colorado!)
When I need some space for me
That’s OK, ’cause I get to be
With a lover that no one can see
That’s the boy that I want the most
Dreaming with John Denver’s ghost
He don’t leave no crumbs in bed
Hangs on every word I said
Never does he play around with my head
That’s the boy that I love the most
Dreaming with John Denver’s ghost
Kisses sweet as moutain flowers
I can keep all of my power
Never let a love go sour
That’s the boy that I want the most
Dreaming with John Denver’s ghost
Never leaves me alone at night
Let’s me win all of our fights
Always say the three special words
Baby, you are right
That’s the boy that I love the most
Dreaming with John Denver’s ghost
Maybe he’ll write a song about me
And I can sing it through aspen trees
Finally live out my fantasy about being someone else’s muse
Never leaves me alone at night
And in the morning he’ll stay for toast
Dreaming with John Denver’s ghost

Happy People and You (for Seattle and Petaluma)
Buskers, bikers, and the rich girls and you
I miss the quiet muted sunless days
No small town chatter about stuff that doesn’t matter
Keep my opinions at bay
I miss you when I’m gone
I miss you when I’m here
Feel my life is so far away
I miss you when I’m gone
I miss you when I’m here
Surrounded by happy people and you
Don’t wanna need a sweater on a summer afternoon
Sick of the sunsets being messed up by the gloom
I’ll take a rainy day over fog rolling in
At least a drop of rain feels more definitive
So keep your smile gleaming all day long
No one gets to see you take your happy face off
With me I see you frowning all the time
With everyone else they think you’re oh so, oh so fine

Searching for the Song
When my love became careless
I wished to be beautiful
When my love became restless
I wished to be a different girl
When my love forgot his love
Didn’t pause to see the road he was on
Forgot the melody forgot right from wrong
He stopped searching for the song
I’ve been warned about musical men
And how they’re not that genuine
But I was searching for that endless blended note
That place where I feel god in my soul
When I forgot my love
Didn’t pause to see the road I was on
Forgot my melody forgot right from wrong
I stopped searching for the song
When your heart is hurt and you long for love
Pause to see the road you’re presently on
Hear the melody hear right from wrong
Don’t stop searching for your song
Look inside yourself for love and God
The melody that’s with you doesn’t have to stop
Search the world over your whole life long
Just don’t give up, don’t give up
Even though you’re broken hearted, feel like you can’t go on
Don’t stop searching for the song

Between God and You
Tell me that you love me
Tell me how I’m better than her
Tell me lies lies lies
You look so handsome with those words
So tell me that you’re sorry
And how I mean the world to you
Sing me those sweet lovely words
’til you believe that they sound true
And love love love
Isn’t all that I thought thought thought
No, beautiful, I love you
Doesn’t mean anything anything true
Between God and you
There is a billboard in the center of this lonely town
Says tomorrow is the day that Jesus is coming down
If tomorrow was judgement day
I’d say, bring it on it’s ok
Because if life is only about coupledom
I’m not sure I wanna stay
I would like to be
Someone who is nicer than me
A girl who could forgive and forget
But always wins her bets
But my odds are zero to none
Cause I always love the untrustful ones
And if you could take it back
Well, I’m not sure that you would
It doesn’t mean anything real I can see
Between God and me

Mistakes
Everyone makes mistakes, everyone has regret
Wishes they could go back
Everyone has a lie, everyone wants to try
Try to erase their past
Make the good times last
And me, I’m going back
To take a new direction
Start over where we left off
Everyone makes mistakes, wants to set the bed on fire
Cause they don’t want to lie there, desire
If I could I would make things better from all I know
If I could I would change
But everyone makes mistakes, everyone has regrets
Few will admit that

Missing in the Moment (for Dave)
It’s not the price
It’s the thought that counts
And he remembered I love yellow flowers
I said it’s not the color
But I long for red
As I think being shown isn’t enough
I really want it said
Like music hits my ears
And yellow reminds me of sunlight
Your sweetness eats at me while I chew on all I don’t have
So focused on the future
I forget to see the brilliant stuff
Right here, in the moment
So focused on our future
I forget to see the brilliant stuff
Right here, missing in the moment
They say if you never taste it
You may never know how sweet love is
But why would you want something on your tongue
You never can try again
They say it’s better to have loved
Than live life with a cold heart
But I am quite sure my lover’s cold stance
Will never let us start
No, you can’t expect brilliant things
When you’re waiting, waiting
You can’t expect anything when you’re
You’re missing in the moment
I wish I knew how to make a garden grow
But I fear I’ve spent too much time up north
Where the growing season’s much too short,
The grey just goes on and on
Guess I got used to drinking
Seems the lack of light gives you that invitation
I nearly drank myself to death up there
Determined not to need anyone
And the future is right here
Right here, missing in the moment

Story of Love
Everything so neatly timed
Every dot, every line
With all the love letters we write
There will never be a love
So divine sweet and kind
So let your smile shine
Drink this wine
The story of love
The story life’s dreams are made of
The story of love
All the moments that we share
A special love that’s always there
Finding someone in this great nowhere is so sublime
A love as wide as the countryside
Or as bright as the starry sky in summer time
A love that encircles everyone
Reminds us where we all come from
We all come from love
A tale of two together
A beautiful book that has no end
We write this story with our family and our friends
For this the story of love

Jenn

another Fantastic CD
from "live life" to "story of love", Jill's beautiful voice tells stories that can easily be related to. the whimsical "john Denver's ghost" provides some lightness and humor while "missing in the moment" reminds one to be present in your life and enjoy what is in front of you. No "skip" songs on this cd. amazing cd- Buy it!

Stan Dart

Beautiful, i love it!
An absolute great CD of Jill. It´s the combination of her voice and her guitar which creates this special magic feeling. You can´t prevent starting to dream by listening to her. My favorite is "Searching For The Song" .. her voice, the music, the sound - everything fits together perfectly and create this dreamy atmosphere.

In a computerbased, danceoriented world a CD like this one is the proof that there are still people like Jill Cohn who write songs with their heart. Buy it - 100% worth!
