You put my heart on the side by Jessica Graae ©2022 I’ll burn the candles that you gave me. I’ll hang the picture that you made. Did you try to make me happy? You know, that picture needs a frame. And when the candles are done burning, I’ll light another one instead. I know my heart is not done yearning. It ain’t talking to my head. Where are the flames? Where are the stars in your eyes? It’s not the same. You put my heart on the side. You have the poems that I wrote you. You’d rather not take any time. You do the things that you were told to. Do you still feel like you’re alive? Oooh You put my heart on the side. These are the dreams that I gave you. You kept your feet down on the ground. You know I loved you ‘cause I had to. Oh, that dream just needs a cloud. Where are the flames? Where are the stars in your eyes? It’s not the same. You put my heart (down), on the side Oooh.

Wild River 04:51
Wild River by Jessica Graae ©2022 We took a trip down to Wild River, Followed the rocks and the grassy line. We walked along in the clear water, The photo’s crumbling in my mind. If I had known what we’d come to be, I would have held my breath. That one day we’d no longer be, Only memories left. Then we sat by the wild river, Under the rusted iron bridge. Yes, I knew I would love you forever. Doesn’t matter what you did. If I had known what we’d come to be, I would have held my breath. That one day we’d no longer be, Only memories left. Wild River, wash over me. Wild River, flow eternally. Now today down at Wild River, I feel the rocks beneath my shoes. Find my way up the high boulders, But now I’m climbing without you. If I had known what we’d come to be, I would have held my breath. That one day we’d no longer be, Only memories left. Wild River, wash over me. Wild River, flow eternally.

The Garden 05:43
The Garden by Jessica Graae ©2022 I remember the tree in the garden, garden. How it used to be, in the garden, garden. I read Nancy Drew mysteries, In a hammock, out in the breeze. I remember the smell, in the garden, garden. I would never tell, in the garden, garden. His scent was lemon, Now that is mixed with love. I was only thirteen. And I’ve never known such peace. Miss that place by the sea. In that town of Chincoteague. Water’s wild and ponies’ free. I remember the days in the old house, old house. How we used to play, in the old house, old house. I made a secret place in a closet, With a window full of lace. And I’ve never known such peace. Miss that place by the sea. In that town of Chincoteague. Water’s wild and ponies’ free. I remember the nights At the old house, old house. Dad was alive, At the old house, old house. We danced to Elton John and the Beatles, Until the records would start to skip. And I’ve never known such peace. Miss that place by the sea. In that town of Chincoteague. Water’s wild and ponies’ free.

By the Sea 04:59
By the Sea (c) Jessica Graae 2022 By the sea she stands there waiting, Every day for his return. A broken land, her heart is aching, Like the waves, her sorrows churn. Out to sea, he’s gone forever. The arms of God pulled him out. And then when the storm is over, the sky is clear, without a cloud. Oh, how the wind does blow. Oh, how the wind does blow. Now the boy is called to the ocean, He stands beside her for days. His father’s ghost is fast approaching, Once lost at sea, among the waves. Oh, how the wind does blow. Oh, how the wind does blow. Why’d you leave me? Oh, how the wind does blow. Oh, how the wind does blow.

Green Trees 03:59
Green Trees by Jessica Graae © 2022 Oh, how I dream of a time long ago. When water was clean, on the mountains was snow. But mankind must always be pushing ahead. Now factories line our shores instead Of green, green trees Green, green trees. Oh, how I long for the time you were here. Now, innocence’s gone, and youth disappeared To green, green trees Green, green trees. Soft grows the grass that is under my feet. Cool is the breeze that blows through the trees. The green, green trees Green, green trees. Oh, how I wish we could talk one last time. I’d see it your way, and you’d see it mine, Through green, green trees Green, green trees.

The Shadow of a Tree by Jessica Graae ©2022 In the shadow of a tree, I think about you and me You and me. I thought I would be free Without you and me. You and me. Now I see, I’ve broken my heart. Now I see, I’ve broken my heart. At the water, by the lake, I think about my heartache. My heartache. Even sunshine’s hard to take, When I think about my heartache. My heartache. Now I see, I’ve broken my heart. Now I see, I’ve broken my heart. In a shadow of a tree, I think about destiny. Destiny.

Sweetheart 04:13
Sweetheart by Jessica Graae ©2022 My sweetheart won’t be mine, You will never find the place she is laid. I gave her gifts so fine, She’ll no longer feel the stab of my pain. I never meant to hurt you, Just stop your cries. Heard every single word you- Just shut your eyes. In the river near, saw her wading, in the deep of the night. I saw another clear, he was taking what surely was mine. I never meant to hurt you, Just stop your cries. Heard every single word you- Just shut your eyes. The river’s rising high, I can only hear its rush at my feet. The truth will find me nigh, It comes walking, walking after me. I never meant to hurt you, Just stop your cries. Heard every single word you- Just shut your eyes.

Jesus saved my soul by Jessica Graae (c) 2022 Don’t you know that Jesus saved my soul. Don’t you know that the devil has no hold. Don’t you know my life’s been stripped to the bone. Don’t you know the Lord’s bringing me home. When I’m hungry I eat from your table. When I’m lonely I call out your name. Was broken but now I am able. Your spirit will always remain. Here in this cell, I think about what I ain’t done. I ain’t killed no man and I ain't never held no gun. God is my witness, I am an innocent man. I’ll walk to the gallows with Jesus holding my hand. When I’m hungry I eat from your table. When I’m lonely I call out your name. Was broken but now I am able. Your spirit will always remain.

Sweet Dreams 03:45
Sweet Dreams by Jessica Graae ©2022 I’ll never learn that your heart is cold, I haven’t seen the ice. When I was only four years old, You seemed to know my price. “Sweet dreams” is the baby’s song, Your mama’s left you in the wind. “Sweet dreams” is the baby’s song. Your mama’s heart can’t let you in. You never asked me to be born. Then why’d you roll the dice? You only notice when things are gone. I still can’t trust your eyes. “Sweet dreams” is the baby’s song, Your mama’s left you in the wind. “Sweet dreams” is the baby’s song. Your mama’s heart can’t let you in. La la baby, please don’t cry. La la baby, please don’t cry. “Sweet dreams” is the baby’s song, Your mama’s left you in the wind. “Sweet dreams” is the baby’s song. Your mama’s heart can’t let you in.

Keep it Alive by Jessica Graae (c) 2022 You gave me a rose, Color of red, Like drops of blood, Onto me bled. I’ll keep it alive. I’ll keep it alive. The day I was born, A rose also bloomed. You would find out, I’d take too much room. I’ll keep it alive. I’ll keep it alive. You gave me a stone- Color of tears, I’ve carried that stone, All of these years. I’ll keep it alive. I’ll keep it alive. La La La You gave me an ache, Color of blue, Where my heart’s s’posed to be, There’s a message from you. I’ll keep it alive. I’ll keep it alive.

Ring the Bells by Jessica Graae ©2022 Ring the bells, ring the bells. Ring the bells there once more. And we’ll all gather round there one day. Ring the bells, ring the bells. Ring the bells there once more. And we’ll all stop and kneel down to pray. Danny is building a sailboat of dreams. He’s waiting to take us away. You know the world isn’t grand as it seems- The waves will caress in their sway. Ring the bells, ring the bells. Ring the bells there once more. And we’ll all gather round there one day. Ring the bells, ring the bells. Ring the bells there once more. And we’ll all stop and kneel down to pray. Fashioned from clouds, rainbows and stars, The ships sails the heavens above. The seas that surround it are galaxies far. And the captain is guided by doves. Ring the bells, ring the bells. Ring the bells there once more. And we’ll all gather round there one day. Ring the bells, ring the bells. Ring the bells there once more. And we’ll all stop and kneel down to pray. Butterflies stored in a jar by the window. They’ve already started to crumble. Their lives cut short, their view from a bottle, Beauty’s not theirs to behold. Ring the bells, ring the bells. Ring the bells there once more. And we’ll all gather round there one day. Ring the bells, ring the bells. Ring the bells there once more. And we’ll all stop and kneel down to pray. A shell of what it was, A shell that’s found on the ocean floor-
