Well I'd like to talk about it to get it off of my chest It's easier to forget the whole thing, that's what I guess And no one even questions what it is that I am The hardest part is knowing that I'm I'm doin all I can and i'm trying to be stronger than i am well nothing has changed around here everyone they're just the same except maybe you call me by a a different name and the days of old they have past us by a thousand years a thousand tears in the blink the blink of an eye and I'm tring to be stronger than i am if it's strength that you need i can pick you up and if it's time you want from me we can watch the clock but if it's patience you need you'll have to take that from me cause i'm too busy being something i am i am not and i'd like to talk about it to get it off of my chest it's easier to forget the whole thing that's what i guess and this may indeed this may this may be the end but after this is over we get to start over again. jf

There's too much on my mind to get it all into words my rambling about hopeless dreams you've already heard there's a thousand chapters and verses but none of it makes sense all trying to prove my gratitude.. and the way things should've been before the burden, before the dream before you gave me a voice to sing before 'I love you' became obscene before the reckoning It's a waste of time i'm certain our investment in these dreams none of it returns a profit and cold is all it brings but you can't take it with you and you won't seem to give it away so when you go I guess they'll go too all of the beautiful things you say before the burden, before the dream before you gave me a voice to sing before 'I love you' became obscene before the reckoning before the reckoning, before I go before we till under all we grow before the sun is consumed by snow I need to know I'm not alone that I didn't waste my words I didn't miss my mark I didn't lose my way into your heart before I go, I need to know before the reckoning There's too much on my mind to get it all into words my rambling about hopeless dreams you've already heard there's a thousand chapters and verses but none of it makes sense all trying to prove my gratitude..to you jf

Well you've got a lot of nerve and I knew that long before now and i'm not quite what you'd heard and I guess that's my fault somehow Well if it get's better when you're farther away drop me a line and let me know i know it's not the right thing it's the polite thing I wanna say I know this isn't how you wanted things to go It was always understood we never spoke those words, of course we were young and we did the best that we could and I signed the letter 'Complacently Yours' Down the road don't you think this'll make us stronger and that makes the whole thing all worth while and honestly when i look back, back on the parts that i can remember you always made me smile And it was always understood we never spoke those words, of course we were young and we did ...we did the best that we could and I signed the letter ' Complacently Yours' I brought you flowers to celebrate us being apart two days before you were to go away i crossed my fingers i could break i could break your heart but you got the last laugh cause you had a two day headstart and it was always understood we never spoke those words of course we were young and we did the best we could and i sign the letter...'Complacently Yours' jf

Butterfly 02:29
I've bee trying to find a way to say that we dismember the laughter when we argue and deceive everything so quietly guarded by a butterfly Ushered by and then into the relic of the morning dew better those who left as new guarded by a butterfly So let's try not to try not to mess things up this time a little piece of reason tucked away inside the rhyme we cannot go to sleep and my mouth is getting dry pray for the strength of a butterfly Dirt turns into doves and then two may become three I've been everything that I know... I know how to be I'm clever enough to know better than to try and by the look of things ...anyway... it seems like you and I we are guarded by a butterfly jf

I wait for words that I don't have little straws that I grasp at dream a dream that I can't see you make look easy and it's days like this...it's hard to rest I dream of wake I am confused at best and I wait for you to sort out the mess you make it look easy And I can't find my way out of here and I don't know where I'm going I'm not sure if there is anything in my mind that is worth knowing but I have a lot of love I'm just not sure that is enough What you've done is overshadow A life's work is suddenly shallow How do you keep up ...how do you make it look so easy you make it look easy and I can't find my way out of here and I don't know where I'm going I'm not sure if there is anything in my mind that is worth knowing but I have a lot of love I'm just not sure that is enough I can't find my way out of here and I don't know where I'm going I'm not sure if there is anything in my mind that is worth knowing I can't find my way out of here I was born the wrong day it's suddenly clear and the answers won't seem to appear but I want so badly for you to hear that I have a lot of love I'm just not sure that is enough jf

Smoke 03:03
Trying to say the same old thing in some kind of a new way and although defeating I am still repeating the words I heard that day a friend of mine said it first but I'll say it again if you were smoke then i would breathe you in I'd fill myself up with the poison that I desire and I'd throw my body to the fire, to the fire I could talk all day about your skin and your eyes be exactly the kind of lines that I despise so I'll save us the trouble and the breathe that I would have wasted save it for those lips that I might have never tasted a friend of mine said it first but I'll say it again if you were smoke then I would breathe you in I'd fill myself up with the poison that I desire and throw my body to the fire, to the fire If you were smoke I would breathe you in If you are the devil I forgive your sins and in case you ever forget I'll say it again If you were smoke then I'd breathe you in If you were smoke If you were smoke then If you were smoke then I'd breathe you in jf

Obvious 03:21
So you tried to disguise yourself as less conspicuous some kind of mystery, with all sorts of history turns out you're obvious And now you find yourself alone inside yourself that's just like yourself Alone with that lonely book you've written and you'll never be Socrates you are not he why would you ever want to be So now you turn the test on me Me, your only friend on what you said when you knew that I wasn't listening I wasn't listening and you'll never be Socrates you are not he i agree why would you ever want to be why would you want to be So I tried to disguise myrself as less conspicuous but that's ridiculous cause I am just so obvious jf

Last Word 03:17
It's not for me to say if you are wasting your time it's obvious your intentions... they are different than mine But it's hard, hard to look away from a fire that burns like fate and I've been biting my tongue for so long now I can no longer taste Taste the defense the determination we all have our reservations about the things we know we never heard fighting for the last word Over time our memories fail Some say it's sad, I'd say a blessing forget the blackness, we fill it up with white lies but no one is confessing and innocence it escapes us the same way we escape justice if only for a moment in her eyes then it's back to the defense determination we all have our reservations about the things we know we never heard fighting for the last word save me from the fire that I started bath me in the blood of the broken-hearted forgive me for all the truths I have disregarded deafened by...the last word the last word this is the last word jf

the complicated live of my simple people make me wish wish i could slow down for my friends and I don't know if i will ever get back to my beginnings and I wish I could get back by your side again back to the laughter back by your side back to the ones in whom i confide back to the place where i know your eyes are waiting to see me back by your side i'm tired of the money making up my mind while life falls farther and farther behind and i wish i could see you with both of my eyes can't wait to be back by your side back to the laughter back to your side back to the ones in whom in whom i confide back to the place where the door is open wide back to ...back to your side there's nothing to prove nothing to win the game is over before we begin and i hope you see through disappointment i find away from you, waiting to, get back to your side jf

The question, it arises time after time ... and again roommates, classmates, cellmates, soulmates, next door neighbors and the best of friends they wanna know if love is dangerous and how it ever comes to happen we look to the stars for direction we are we are prophets and we are sea captains and lovin is easy and everybody knows how the hardest part's the waitin, the wishin, the wantin, the wondering what to do till one day when you figure out loving is easy historically speaking, you know love happens to everyone it sneaks up behind you to knock you down that's loves idea of fun but love won't hurt you it's not some stunt that you do it's like breathing, just like bleeding it's like your children they keep growing without you even knowing and lovin is easy and everybody knows how the hardest part's the waitin, the wishin, the wantin, the wondering what to do till one day when you figure out loving is easy loving is as loving does and loving happens just because loving is a part of us and love is one thing you can trust and now that we have discussed it i sure hope you can see that lovin is easy jf

The Urge 04:10
I've been resisting the urge barely existing, choking to death on every word hidin' behind my confidence I wait until the time is right and I almost let the cat out of the bag tonight I almost messed up and told you what I wanna do ....is It's not my place to say and really there's nothin' I can do Should be on my way instead of fallin' apart in front of you You remember when I told you that you looked nice.... what I wanted to say was DAMN you're beautiful...in the moonlight and I almost messed up and told you what I wanna do is hold you, kiss you touch your face and tell you how I missed you and I wish you wanted this too but before it slips out you cover my mouth and when the silence it becomes awkward and your eyes meet mine you make your escape from me every time but what you don't know is that long after you're gone those eyes haunt me..... like a sad song and I can't believe I almost told you what I wanna do what I want from you is to hold you.. jf

Wait 04:00
The road we travel winds and winds sometimes dark, it's sometimes dirty and sometimes I'm just blind But you're so kind to light my way and if it seems I fall behind don't you worry about me wait for me when you get there i want to see that smile i want to know that it's harder to fall down than it is to walk the extra mile wait for me when you get there there is a time and there's a place for everything we will ever face and i may rest along the way i will do what is required of me and do it at my pace wait for me when you get there i want to see that smile i want to know that it's harder to fall down than it is to walk the extra mile wait for me when you get there I'm not sure what we're searching for is anything that we will ever find the distance between us, the dreams that need us but wherever you go I won't be far behind wait for me when you get there... jf

Truth Is 04:12
Well everything about our lives is simple every dream finds it's own song and everyone that's in this life is little and this is the storm before the calm and everyone that i know they are fighting with someone or something inside themselves the truth is, oh the truth is, the truth is what we're fighting above all else the truth is we all keep lying the truth is that we all know why the truth hurts, there's no denying and truth, oh truth will never die and everything about our lives is simple every dream we have finds a song and everyone in this life is little and this is the storm before the calm and the truth is we all keep lying the truth is that we all know why the truth hurts, there's no denying and truth...oh truth will never die and everything in this life is simple jf

well i don't have anything to say nothing much happened today the mail ran and the rain it came i wonder how things are your way and i don't have any stories to tell everyone round here is well tomorrow we're gonna work until we hear the sweet sound of that bell and tonight's like every other night there's nothing here to do so i write the letter again, the one says i've been i've been thinking of you tomorrow the suns gonna shine i can feel it i guess just like i can feel your smile when the last of the light it dies out in the west and you know in the end we're gonna end up here again the same stamp and same envelope and the same old friend tonight's like every other night there ain't nothing here to do so i write the letter again the one says 'i've been' thinking of you and then the sun came crashing in before i had a chance to begin so i start where it always ends i start with 'i have been thinking of you' jf

about

"Jefferson Fox and his guitar form a formidable duo. His voice ain’t half bad either. Okay let’s be honest...his voice rocks in a magical spellbinding way. His cd “Wait for Words” is a mature piece of work... provides for good listening.
Jefferson is one to go for. His music is made for soundtracks. This is an album for gentle listening and is a nice back-drop when you feel like relaxing, cleaning, reading. It’s calm and stimulating at the same time. So what’s my favorite track by this artist? ‘The Urge’...hands down. Oh and ‘The Truth Is’ and ‘Laura’s Song’.
