The Wailin’ Jennys Pants

Pants are for keeping you warm

That’s what they’re designed to do

They keep your bum happy

They look really snappy

Now how about some socks and shoes?

Shoes are for walking around

That’s what they’re designed to do

They keep your toes happy

They look really snappy

Now how about a sweater for you?

Sweaters are like wearing a hug

That’s what they’re designed to do

They keep your heart happy

They look really snappy

And it all looks great on you

Pants are for keeping you warm

The Wailin’ Jennys Away But Never Gone

The moon’s on its way to its nightly shift

The frogs fill the creek below

The tall grass waves a farewell to the day

The wind moans sweet and low

The heron tucks his head in his wing

The fish in the lake float along

The sun sinks from sight

Away but never gone

The dawn brings the dew like a thousand jewels

A nest rustles high on a bough

A blue egg stays warm in the cool of the morn

Under a red breast of down

The clouds turn and stretch, the moon checks its wrist

gathers itself with a yawn

And winks to the sun

Away but never gone

And all o’er the world as it turns and it turns

the stars twinkle off and on

And we come and go

Away but never gone

The Wailin’ Jennys Something To Hold Onto

There’s a light on in your house

but you’re not home today

And each time I come on by you seem so far away

Can you give me some reason to hold on

Can you give me some reason to stay

Got some friends knocking on my door

Wondering where I’ve been

Tired of mining for your heart, I’ve come up for air again

Can you give me some reason to hold on

Can you give me some reason to stay

Stay

Now I’m going away, will I leave you crying

It’s been 40 days but this love is dying

I’ve searched all around for something

Something to hold onto, and a reason to stay

So I’m cashing in your promises

gonna leave without a sound

Got a broken heart and aching head

cause I know you can’t be found Can you give me some reason to hold on

Can you give me some reason to stay

Stay

Now I’m going away, will I leave you crying

It’s been 40 days but this love is dying

I’ve searched all around for something

Something to hold onto, and a reason to stay

Stay

Now I’m going away, will I leave you crying

It’s been 40 days but this love is dying

I’ve searched all around for something

Something to hold onto, and a reason to stay

Something to hold onto, and a reason to stay
