Jessie 02:16
I could’ve looked the other way And not given another day The minutes slip and my fingers take The pattern, the sequence, the motion that makes me wait Jessie You’re everyone I’ll never be You’re everywhere I’ll never see All of the words I’ll never read Some sliding doors just go one way It’s harder to burn it down when there’s more at stake The path’s not always clear But it’s mine to take I’d rather twists and turns There’s beauty along the way Jessie You’re everyone I’ll ever be You’re everywhere I’ll ever see All of the ways to set me free Jessie Your queen is stronger than your king Your universe is everything You’re every song I’ll ever sing

The universe acts in funny ways These days are not the days for us And although I know we live under the same sun These moments are too perfect to only be for fun And if the shore will be the wall Between your world and mine Land lover, heart breaker, Eternal love divine I’ll come close to the shore I’ll wave and I’ll shout But in the morning, I know, I’m alone and I’ll be fine Who are you to oversee these constant reminders? Where do you hide Allow the night to reprimand me? I never thought I could come back from this Dream maker, heart wrencher Eternal love, be kind I never thought we’d build a fortress like this Lover of time, lover of mine Be free from the mind Who are you to oversee these constant reminders? Where do you hide Allow the night to reprimand me?

Dear John 04:36
I’ve got the kind of smile Lets me ride the bus for free So I’ll take that two-fifty and Put it in a jar to be where you are And you said you’d gladly Sell your charm, all your charm And you said you’d gladly For the simple chance to be seen on my arm We lived next door for over a year Watched you park your car and grow your hair And we smoked all those cigarettes Spoke of love and regret, promised to forget And you said you’d gladly Sell your faith, all your faith And you said you’d gladly For the simple chance to be free of this weight Build a boat to carry me Will you meet me by the edge of the sea? And you said you’d gladly Sell your time, all your time Darling you said, oh you’d gladly For the simple chance that I’d call you mine

Devil's Grin 05:20
Ring around the rosie Pocket full of posie Hushabye, hushabye We all fall down And everything is quite alright Sucker punched and lost the fight Pick up my teeth Thank you and goodnight Black and blue, black and blue Cheshire grin, she says, “Come in” And everything has come undone Broke your heart, sure was fun Put down the gloves This must be love Black and blue, black and blue Cheshire grin, she says, “Come in” Broke into your bedroom window Obvious she doesn’t know Honey, won’t you put down the gun I might be fast, but I don’t know how to run So run, run, run Run, run, run Black and blue, black and blue Devil’s grin, we said, “Come in” “Come in, Come in, Come in, Come in, Come in, Come in”

She was sitting at a bus stop somewhere along Highway 16 And she knew if she stayed there, she’d always be somewhere between To the boy who followed her round, she said, “Come run away If you live with what is, you’ll always be stuck in the gray” She said, “Boy, I’m leaving with or without you And I hate when you’re making me wait” She said, “I’m going either way Is never better than late?” There are times these four walls close on in and don’t feel like a home But the empire she built, blood she spilt in the name of her Rome He shows up on her doorstep, she says “I don’t even know who you are But this life ain’t a crossroad, our path splits like points on a star” She said, “Boy, I’m leaving with or without you And I’m old enough now, I can’t wait” She said, “I’m going either way, Is never better than late?” Forty years have now passed since that boy put a ring on her hand Birthdays and car rides, the time passed like palms gripping sand But the headaches don’t stop, and the doctors have no words to say He kneels down in a room, now a tomb where his universe lays She said, “Boy, I’m leaving with or without you And time doesn’t know how to wait” She said, “I’m going either way Is never better than late?” She said, “I’m going either way Never would be better than late”

Like breath in the wind, you couldn’t be here forever But I️ thought that we’d never have to let go Yeah, life is a river, fate mixed up in the undertow Now I’m lost and I️ don’t know what lies past the shore Bring me again to the place in your heart Where you spin me around and it’ll never go dark We’ll sing it for you, and hope that it’s true that you’ll hear us wherever you are Like a match to a blaze, we didn’t know what we started Not until we had parted, did I️ feel the burn, burn, burn Now only ashes remain, and even they’re set on leaving You were the only real thing I ever held in my hands Bring me again to the place in your heart Where you spin me around and it’ll never go dark We’ll sing it for you, and hope that it’s true that you’ll hear us wherever you are Bring me again to the place in your heart Where you spin me around and it’ll never go dark We’ll sing it for you, and hope that it’s true that you’ll hear us wherever you are Like breath in the wind, you couldn’t be here forever

Jessie You’re everyone that you have known You are the seeds that you have sown You are the family you’ve grown

In the morning, when the dew is young, and the night is done Know that I’ll be near Though I may not be here I am with you In the evening, when I’m far from home, and you’re all alone Know that I’ll be here Though I may not be near I am with you And I will hold you up high When you are low Though I may not be near I am with you Though I may not be here I am with you

about

Fox Glove's debut full-length album, Jessie, is a collection of songs that tell the life story of a fictional character that embodies parts of all three founding members of the band.

There are so many possibilities in this life, and so many sliding door situations as a result... while being a representation of the Chelsea, Renn, and Claire, Jessie is also all the people we'll never be, all the words we'll never read, and all the places we'll never see.

about

Fox Glove Victoria, British Columbia
