All Over


A concise collection of poignant short stories in song form brought flawlessly to life through a creative partnership with Simon Edwards (Fairground Attraction, Billy Bragg, David Gray). These ten, four-minute tales are delivered with a grit and warmth that puts Jones firmly in the Bonnie Raitt and Joan Osborne class of tough but soulful exponents of North American roots music.

Track Name: Train

It happened on a normal day, out of the blue just like they say
It snuck up on me like a train
Love may jump you like a thief, but when it goes it tends to creep
I felt the tremors miles beneath my feet

And I froze there listening

I had my hands down in the dirt, you had my heart tucked in your shirt
I fell in love with all the earth
Full with the promise of the world, a heavy wit, a willow-girl
You fell for nothing and the darkness curled

And I froze there listening, a weight in my heart

But by the time that you hear it you won't go near it
And the wound in your spirit tells you to fear it
And it moves down a track laid many decades ago
When it gets here I'll be gone

I tried to sit with you and read, you threw your shadow over me
So I went out to pull the weeds
The sun was shining like a priest, through the window I could see
You got up to dust me off your sleeve

Stood on the bluff above the flats
The heat was trembling on the tracks
Then you thundered past
Track Name: Unknown

This is a strange taste
A bitter sweet grace
It isn't my place, but here I am

And I receive it
As much as I believe it
I could not have conceived it, but here I am

But I won't give up waiting for the phone, or a car outside my home
There's been a big misunderstanding
And I won't try denying when they show, I am utterly unknown
And feel your silence from the landing

Well it struck me
That you might really love me
Sometimes people get lucky, here I am

But I know this kinda thing doesn't keep for a killer like me
And I know this sorta love doesn't last for a lover like me
Track Name: Missed You
I Missed You

I live alone with my shame
In the comfort that nobody knows my name
You came out of nowhere with nothing but trouble
In a suitcase too big for my faith
And I didn't want you

You took your burdens for blame
Beyond any folly you could have made
I tried to ignore you, get on with my pain
I was not in the market for grace
Not for a way through

And I missed you in the moment when I dropped my eye, wallowing
I missed you in the moment I was blinking in the sun
I missed you for a moment but God knows he's taking time over this

What kind of portion remains
For widows and orphans and humble things?
I dare not come near you or touch what you love
In the fear of the weight in my veins
No one to warn you that I'm no good for you
