Jolly is the monster in your mind.
She savors shame for breakfast. She will snack on worry. Lunch is anger and it makes her mean.
But then comes joy for dinner. Hope is the salt. Pepper, peace.
You are what you eat.

Track Name: Mood is Right
i'll cut your hair
i'll wash your clothes too
all of the stuff
that you don't want to
you can even say the mood is right

tell you all the facts
tell you my plan all the way through
i'll be coming back
know i'll always find you

there's nothing i wouldn't do
there's nothing i wouldn't do
to justify you

i'll cut your hair
i'll fold your clothes too
all of the stuff
that you don't want to
you can even say the mood is right
Track Name: Telephone
baby i love you
but you can't relate
i bet you're thinking the exact same thing as me
i'm pretty sure you mean well
i'm positive it hurts like hell
anytime you feel alone
i'm on the other side of the telephone
Track Name: Not Well
you're breaking my confidence
you're breaking my heart
in my defense
i didn't know
how far you'd go

you're hanging me out to dry
ain't no starch
ain't no rye
i'm alone
sinking stone

you're telling yourself it's fine
telling you're friends you wouldn't lie

you're not well
i can tell
it's not well with my soul

i'm telling you now
at last
i'm telling you now to kiss my ass
i've outgrown what you've known
Track Name: Walk Again
i'm miss jekyll
i'm miss hyde
i'll pick you up
and put you right back down again
sweetheart i'm down again

misunderstanding it's a shame
i've only got myself to blame

misunderstanding it's a shame
i've only got my love to keep me sane

picture me
i'll picture you
a new state of mind
a new pair of shoes
and we'll walk again
hand in hand my friend
Track Name: Have and To Hold
why do you do it to me
why do it so well
how can you mean all of the things you say
like heaven walk on water
like wind without a sound
that watching over me
it's coming down

when will i see you truly
when will i part
have and to hold that story
know it by heart
like in a moral fable
like white and drifted snow
you have a place for me
you let it show

all these thoughts
are coming up in two's

wave them off
there's so much more to do
