  • 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

Given All

Given all that you saw for me, how am I here?
Given all that I thought I might be, why am I here?
So wide the world, so wide a girl could lose herself
But failure will make neighbours of the poles

So please do me a kindness and leave me to my mind when you see my face
Hanging around this place
Offer me your silence, your words do only violence
Just leave my shame alone

Given all of the plans that I made, a voice at my ear
I would fall through the loss of the fate that I could not hear
And irony has eyes for me
I see the life I fled approaching through the glass

And I'm probably just what you thought of me
All of your prophesies sewn up and satisfied
But its costing me all that I've got to be holding my head up at all

So please do me a kindness, leave me to my lies when you see my face
Hanging around this place
Please do me a kindness, leave me to my lies when you see my face
Offer me your silence your words do only violence
Just leave my shame alone
