Four Leaf Clover turns stress into radiant joy:
My mind is always racing
My body's on overload....
I let go of all of the big deals
I let go of the bitter dream...
I gotta a four leaf clover, it's gotta bring a little luck
On the soundtrack of Dawson's Creek. Song of year, Austin Music Awards, 1997-8. Grammy nominated.
Dont' Feel Like Crying looks back on a relationship that didn't work realizing that they didn't really know each other very well. Extremely catchy and upbeat rhythms will help almost anyone move on from a painful ex.
Strangest Places is a humorous realization that we do things we prefer we didn't "My head's got a mind of its own...I find myself in the strangest places." Fun and upbeat.
Happiness is the ironic title about a relationship that no longer works yet she hasn't broken the bad news-- "Happiness has come to this and God it's such a heavy burden to bear." Some people report that this somber, sad song awakens them to action they must take but have been putting off. In the movie Excess Baggage, Happiness becomes musical background for the outlaw couple on the run. When the male lead asks his girlfriend how to attain one's dreams and she doesn't reply, he then instructs her "wake up"--and Happiness fades in. Was also on the track of Felicity and Dawson's Creek.
Never Believe You Now: romantic images have been replaced by reality and disillusion in this moderately upbeat, poetic ballad.
Say It Like That is one of the catchiest, most joyous songs ever written with wonderfully elevating lyrics: "Tell it to me light...tell it to me right...would you tell it to me real this time." On my answering machine.
You'll hear a Beatles influence in Your Faithful Friend--a lovely, waltz-like poem.
All I Want: high energy rocker about an all consuming love.
In Light Of It All is an enchanting poem about daffodils swimming in the coldest part of spring. Gets better with repeated listenings.
Keeps My Body Warm is one of the most emotionally cleansing songs I've heard. Abra aptly describes it as "an ethereal siren song" admonishing us to treat each other well. "Look at all these reasons and explanations for damage that I've done...heavenly hurting as I cry."
Guitar Song is a lovely melodic metaphor about a broken guitar/broken relationship--"I thought it would last I thought it was stronger."
Summer's Ending concludes the album with fading colors, hopes and seasons. Her voice soars so movingly you will feel she can "take [you] anywhere."
