Words Get in the Way – Jewel Kilcher

Come here buttercup
Let me fill you up
Can’t you see i’m the blue in your skies
You can tell by the stars in my eyes
Dawn always comes too soon
It hurts me like a bruise
There’s a hole in my pillow
Where you used to be
It feels like a hole in the middle of me

Oh, oh, oh just take my hand
To have and hold if not obey
Oh, oh, oh say you’re still my man
I’ll try to find the words to say
That i want you always to stay
To wake up with you every single day
But words get in the way
Words get in the way

Tell your boss you’re dead
And let’s go back to bed
You make me want to break out in song
But everytime i try it just comes out wrong


I leave a message on your answering machine
I try to say what i really mean

Becoming – Jewel Kilcher

Listen, heart
Listen close-listen
2 the melancholy
Melody of your own voice
I am weary of my own dreaming
I am tired of waiting
So this time, I’m leaping


I reach-beyond myself 2 see
What I find, beyond my mind, there is no time
In this place beyond my sight
My heart knows what is not yet seen
I’m witnessing my own becoming

Lash myself 2 the
Mantle of my desire-I will
Turn from its temptations
But the wanting takes me higher

I am hurting
Oh, I am not yet born
I am the mother and the father
Of what is not yet known
Darkness surrounds me
I scratch, I struggle, I breathe

Only One Too – Jewel Kilcher

I am talking but you can’t quite hear what I say
I come closer
but you push me away
I should leave
but I don’t have the strength
I can’t think

Please can’t you see that I am down on my knees
My heart’s in you hand
and you squeeze
I want the whole thing
but you give me a part
it’s time to start
so I push and you pull
and I don’t know which way to go

Stop Me, Stop me from falling
cause I can see
See where this is going
If you love me
then why do you leave me
if you need me
then I’ll love you only
when I am the only one, too

I just can’t make you understand
I want your heart but you hold up your hand
you say space is what you need
but you want me
to be true
to just you
while you get to do whatever you want to


You’ll never stop
it’s gotta change
you don’t want a lover
you want a world of slaves
I can’t resist falling into those arms
those boyish charms
you think I won’t leave
yes you’re good, but not so good I can’t see

Stop me,
I can see where this is going
if you love me, yea!

Bucky the Bull – Jewel Kilcher

There was a bull named Bucky
It seemed he ran out of lucky
You see Bucky
Didn’t wanna buck

That was a problem you see
Cause he was on his way to Tallahassee
The main attraction
At the tri-county rodeo

He dazzeled ’em from Dallas to Dakota
Into the air he’d throw ya
And if you’d stay on his back
You’d win the gold

He had quite a reputation
A tornado of devastaion
But he was mellowing now
As he was growing old

Still you’d hear ’em say…

Step right in, step right up
Come see Bucky the bucking bull buck
He’s a mean hombre, with big scary horns
Many mamas curse the day he was born
Come on in and get your ticket here
Your safe in the stands, you got nothing to fear
Watch the cowboys test their luck
See if they got the right stuff
Watch Bucky the bucking bull buck

He arrived at the rodeo around ten
He had a star trailer to lay in
And around him he saw the other bulls
Warning up

They loaded him into the chute
His rope not to tight, not too loose
And a rookie named Garret
Climbed upon his back

It became the same old routine
He had seen it all
There was no thrill it seemed
The dream had died long ago

But still you’d hear ’em say

The cowboy nodded his head and said “Let ‘er rip!”
The chute gate opened and they moved out quick
But Bucky hardly bucked and the cowboy cursed
“Come on now, give me your worst!”

READ  Do You - Jewel Kilcher

There was such passion in the young man’s voice
Bucky came alive, well he had no choice
He said “ok cowboy, buckle in
Were gonna dance
Were gonna dance
Hang on to your pants!

And now you hear ’em say
