  • 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

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
