  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    A concise collection of poignant short stories in song form, narratives brought perfectly to life through a creative partnership with Simon Edwards (Fairground Attraction, Billy Bragg, David Gray). The album contains ten four-minute tales from the school of Anne Tyler and Raymond Carver, 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.

lyrics

Float

I'm a god and you're an angel
Sitting sweetly with your hands warm on the table
You see me like you always knew me
And I can see that you are wise beyond your beauty

Oh oh don't a man have a right to
Some comfort in sweetness and youth
You strike me as something that I could use

And I need you to float, hold me up by coat you'll see
That I could never drag you down
You built to float, be a stout little boat for me
You were made for pushing out

You are the only shot of sunlight
Breaking through the brooding wash
That is the contour of my love life oh you know
If there is love for me inside you
Keep on shining, shine your life out
Baby you are blinding

What's left, nothing worked that I wanted
And you're fresh as the first of the Spring
And I know you know just what you're doing

I take your coat, make a note
Girl you're gonna make me float
Lace my hopes round your throat
I'm holding on, I won't let go
