about

The songs themselves, especially “When I Come Home,” and “If You Love Me” are not exactly predictable—there’s a sense when listening to Porter’s tracks that the song will go a certain way, but just when you’re thinking you know where the song is headed, Porter takes you in an unexpected direction and somehow it all works beautifully.

ohhh ohh ,
Two become one, split at the seams
don’t give up, please wake up this dream
I know its hard don't give up the fight
Just keep looking towards the light

And when you feel like nobodys there
just know, Im right beside you
When everything is not as it seems
and you cant trust reality.

Just Believe
In a better Tomorrow
Just believe
That love will find a way

ahhh oh

You the hold the lock
And I hold the key
Don't be scared it's only me
The tables have turned and things aren't the same
You can barely see

Just keep your head up darling
and let your love light keep shinning
And try to be strong
I;ll be right here waiting for you

Just believe in
a better tomorrow
Just believe
that love will find a way

And I'm so scared that we are breakin

Just believe yah

Pretty Girl

Jess Porter

Black jack and Romance
out with the movie stars
oh my god your so beautiful
I wish I was beautiful
I want to take you out
dress you and make you out
say I'm ridiculous
im so conspicuous

I'm on your side
out on this front line
this is what
this is what
we have been waiting for
tied to your soul
I'm such a pretty girl
you break me like a doll
I'm just putty in demand

Perfect in powder pink
dance till we cannot think
and we laugh and let no one know
tonight we are invincible
carry my shoes and run
driving so fast that were free
and you turn up the radio
love this and just let go

I'm on your side
out on the front line
this is what , this is what
we've been waiting for

tied to your soul
I'm such a pretty girl
you break me like a dollI'm
I'm just putty in demand
I'm just putty in demand
repeat

you break me

Track Name: If You Love Me
If You Love Me
Jess Porter

If you love me, meet me in the park
If you love me, dancin in the dark
If you love me, catch me on the flip side
If you love me, you'll never have to hide

I never loved nobody, like you
but I did babe
Its you, yea its you, oh yeah
Its you, yea its you, oh yeah

Two scared lovers running in the dark
doesn't matter what you say I'm always gonna be on your side
hold on baby and never let me go
lite a candle and meet me in the cave

I never loved nobody, like you
but I did babe
Its you, yea its you, oh yeah
Its you, yea its you, oh yeah

Ive been a fool, waistin my time
Ive been a wreck, a crazy mess
Ive been driven so many miles somewhere in time
Ive been awake, feelin half asleep
I've been a fool
Track Name: When I Come Home
When I Come Home

Jess Porter

When I come home

our love will be strong

I am your wife and

no more anticipating

And ohh people like to talk a lot about
nothin they know nothing about

but when I come home
the angels singing
but when I come home
church bells ringing
and when I come home
there will be no more troubles in my mind

when I come home
we will get some coffee
and talk all night
talk about life
I will listen to your voice shake
There will be no more mistake

love was so free
everything will feel right
Ill look into your eyes
there will be no more
mistakes

the church bells ringing
when I come home
they'l be no more troubles in my mind

I believe in love
when I come home the angels singing
when I come home the church bells ringing
and when I come home
they'll be no more troubles in my mind
Track Name: Bullets
Bullets

Jess Porter

And I know
one things never gonna change
and I see we were brought from our revelry
hands our tied
three sheets down from a loaded gun
one and all, never gonna make it till you win

Lovers be lovers and bygones be bygones but
one thing never gonna change
I’ll take a bullet for my brother
and turn my shoulder to another
but somehow my blood still remains
but I never been loved
I say it again , I say it again

He did win
all his blood for our dying sins
saviors fall
never gonna make it till we try
all the same
one you cant until you will
just you know
gotta find it deep within yourself
and inside

Lovers be lovers and bygones be bygones but
one thing never gonna change
I’ll take a bullet for my brother
and turn my shoulder to another
but somehow my blood still remains
but I never been loved
I say it again , I say it again


We will fall
if we don't remember our pain
one and all
slaves to the fall man
we can drive
but you gotta let it go
lovers side
until you know your yourself inside

Lovers be lovers and bygones be bygones but
one thing never gonna change
I’ll take a bullet for my brother
and turn my shoulder to another
but somehow my blood still remains
but I never been loved
I say it again , I say it again

ohhh ohhh oh
yea
ohhh ohhh oh

yea, ohhh ohh oh yea
say it again
Track Name: Fly
Fly
Jess Porter

Waiting all those years just wasted
faces changing places, just like make believe
trying, always comin up short
never really knowing, where are world belongs

I wanna see you, I wanna see me
I wanna be happy as a bee up in a tree
I wanna see love fall from the stars, in the sky
wanna be light, wanna be free
wanna be here with you tonight
like a bird soaring high
we will fly
we will fly

Trying, always coming up short
never really knowing, where I truly belong
then I, saw you standing there
your hands up in your pockets
your curly strands of hair

I wanna see you, I wanna see me
I wanna be happy as a bee up in a tree
I wanna see love fall from the stars, in the sky
wanna be light, wanna be free
wanna be here with you tonight
like a bird soaring high
we will fly
we will fly

ahhhhh fly fly
I wanna be with you.....
echo...
like a bird
I wanna see you
repeat chorus
Track Name: Market Square
Market Square

Jess Porter

She puts on her petty coat
stands out under the unknown
Nobody see's her
Dancing down in Market Square
on cheap champaign
and cherry wine
They say that she's a lover
carries an old suitcase
fancy strings and tied up lace
they say she's an orphan

And London bridges falling down
The chord is cut and love has won
and soldiers say that war is breakin out
Dancing down in Market Square
in shoes and ties , their underwear
they say that freedom is a choice

Fancy lights in mid July
Tiny boats and things that fly
Darling remember
theres a man up in the air
Singing songs of love me fair
And tails of me tragic
Be with me here today
Love was always felt that way
and feel the magic

And London bridges falling down
The chord is cut and love has won
and soldiers say that war is breakin out
Dancing down in Market Square
in shoes and ties , their underwear
they say that freedom is a choice

Ahh, Market Square

Dancing down in market square
shoes and ties, their underwear
They say that freedom is a choice.

fair......ahhh ahhhooo
ahhhho
market square
repeat chorus
Track Name: Runaway
Runaway

Jess Porter

Were all the same
broken in between
but I'm such a freak
I can hardly speak
turn when people look at me
lately I’ve had bad dreams
choking on my teeth
tasted Satin's seed
lies and deceit

run run away
run run run run run run
away

There shiny in there shells
but underneath its nothing
dirty and disgusting
want to see something
like its when its dirty
beauty is beauty
and that’s the way its supposed to be

run run run run run run
run away
run run run run run run
run run run
away

We are all enlightening, in our own way
just because it feels
doesn’t mean you have to

run run run run run
run run run
away
run run run run
away run away

Track Name: Daydreamer
Daydreamer
Jess Porter

Im just girl
inside a world
I didn’t know about it now
I was confused without it
so used without it
and oh there you go again
your out the door
Just like a thousand times before
take your promises and leave
All your records and then your gone

All I know is how I feel
and love was a refuge for me
I was confused about it
so used without it
and ohh there I go again
I feel so bad about these feelings
that I had
spread my love around and still you
won’t give it back

Daydreamer, I was the one on glories side
Daydreamer, it was the music that chose my life
Daydreamer, I couldn’t stop it if i tried
Daydreamer, I was on gloria’s side

You, you were a boy
lost in a world
I didn't know about it now
I was so sad about it
you just laughed without it
ohh, there you go again
your out the door
just like a thousand times before
take your promises and leave
all your records then your gone

All I know is how I see
love is made a mind to be
I was just used without it
so confused about it
oh and there I go again
I feel so bad about these feelings that I had
take my love and spread it around
But still you don’t give it back

Daydreamer, I was the one on glories side
Daydreamer, I couldn’t stop it if i tried
Daydreamer, it was the music that chose my life
Daydreamer, I couldn’t stop it if i tried

Daydreamer, Daydreamer,
I was on glories side
Daydreamer, Daydreamer,
Daydreamer, it was the music in my life
Daydreamer, Daydreamer, Ooh

Daydreamer, I was the one on glories side
Daydreamer, I couldn’t stop it if i tried
Daydreamer, it was the music that chose my life
Daydreamer, I couldn’t stop it if i tried
