lyrics

I did everything you asked me to
waited up all night by the door for you
caught every single lie you threw
so don’t ask for me,
I won’t answer.

I’ve known a love that you will never know
builds its own walls, throws its stones
you will lose your hair, you will die alone
so don’t ask for me,
I won’t answer.

I caught it on the way down
heard it from the roof
I was running miles away for miles at a minute
to stay bullet proof
You can put your head down,
it’ll rush right by you.
You lived a lie for five hundred days
when all you had to say was
the truth

Look at all those things
you’ve got on your sleeve
You will never have just what you need
You are all the reasons why I leave
don’t ask for me,
I won’t answer.

I caught it on the way down
heard it from the roof
I was running miles away for miles at a minute
to stay bullet proof
You can put your head down,
it’ll rush right by you.
You lived a lie for five hundred days
when all you had to say was
the truth

I did everything you asked me to
Held my breath till my face was blue
Now I’ll be someone you once knew
so don’t ask for me
I won’t answer
don’t ask for me
I won’t answer
don’t ask for me

Jenny Stockdale Ithaca, New York

Jenny Stockdale grew up in a cow town with one stoplight, a grange and a lot of manure spreaders. Her musical roots are deep, sometimes dark and sort of all over the place. She fits into the singer/songwriter category, but awkwardly, as her influences buckle together folk, gospel, rock and jazz. ... more
