Track Name: Winter Serenade
WINTER SERENADE
By Jen de Ness
VERSE 1
My love you’ve gone away
I’m filled with sadness
Those Years are far away
How I long for you

Music still plays our song
Oh, But I don’t belong
In this dance….
Of love.

VERSE 2
This winter serenade
My soul is yearning
Winter serenade
How I long for you

Music still plays our song
Oh, But I don’t belong
In this dance….
Of love.

BRIDGE
Our hearts beat in time
And Our souls are entwined
Music still plays our song
Oh, But I don’t belong
In this dance….
Of love.
Track Name: See things like You
SEE THINGS LIKE YOU
Words & Music by Jen de Ness

VERSE 1
If I could see things like you do
Set my thoughts aside for just a while
Really see the pictures deep behind your eyes
Know my own truth can’t be denied.

VERSE 2
Well if you could crawl in behind my words
Still your mind to see things from my side
Understand the shape of my reality
Allowing all our differences to be.

BRIDGE
When you miss me I feel so angry.
Want to shout and scream and
shake my fist!
Then I think of you and how I miss you too.
It seems it takes the both of us to meet.

VERSE 3
Well I think that I begin to see the big picture.
Of life beyond my own reality,
They tell us we’re all linked so we can be in synchronicity
Well if that’s the case tell me why?
Ooh why mama’s it got to be so hard
For two people to see eye to eye?
Track Name: Just Gets Better
Just Gets Better
By Jen de Ness


Verse 1 When I get to,thinking thoughts like these.
When I get to feeling so blue.
You are the one who
Stops me thinking thoughts like these
You the one who
Stops these thoughts from ruining me.



Verse 2 When the world seems lonely and confused
When I get to feeling so used.
You are the one who
Stops me thinking thoughts like these
You are the one who
Stops this world from ruining me.


Bridge We’ve seen some hard times together
We’ve weathered some stormy weather
But our love

Chorus Just gets better, just gets better.
Our love gets better, just gets better.

Solo Instrumental

Bridge We’ve seen some hard times together
We’ve weathered some stormy weather
But our love

Chorus Just gets better, just gets better.
Our love gets better, just gets better.
Track Name: Green Tile Tango
“GREEN TILE TANGO”
(de Ness/Atkinson)

VERSE 1:
Everybody fits in at the Green Tile Tango club!
It’s the place to be.... seen.
You could be watching somebody and somebody
could be watching you!
And someone else could be watching them!
The big question on everybody’s lips is
Who seducing who
At the Green tile Tango Club?

BRIDGE When the band strikes up the music to play
You must be ready to go. Leave behind your woes

CHORUS
At the Green Tile Tango. (No one can resist)
The Green Tile Tango. (Not to be missed).
Whoever you are, whatever you’re here for
The Green Tile Tango,
will leave you wanting more.

VERSE 2
Well some they come to remember
and some to forget. Whatever your tale or story,
Non je ne regrette rein.
For we all have stories to leave behind.
And we’re all here now, To see what we might find.

BRIDGE When the band strikes up the music to play
You must be ready to go. Leave behind your woes

CHORUS
At the Green Tile Tango. (No one can resist)
The Green Tile Tango. (Not to be missed).
Whoever you are, whatever you’re here for
The Green Tile Tango, will leave you wanting more.

Ah let yourself go, (The Green Tile Tango)
Ah, let yourself go, (The Green Tile Tango)
Whoever you are, whatever you’re here for.
The Green Tile Tango,
Oh you know it leaves you wanting more.
THE GREEN TILE TANGO!
Track Name: You Took
“YOU TOOK”
(de Ness/Atkinson)
Verse 1
I gave you my heart I gave you my soul.
Well, You took my body
and then took control.
I told you I love you.
You said, “Live and let live”
This game t you’re playing
turns me into a sieve.
CHORUS
Oh, We laughed and we cried
At how they treated you so bad
And we said must to set you free
Well now you’ve got your sweet wings,
You’re doing it all to me.
Now it’s me who longs to be free.

Verse 2 C’est une chanson qui nous resemble
Toi qui m’aimais et je t’aimais
Der vivions tous les deux, ensemble
Toi qui m’aimais, moi qui t’aimais
CHORUS
Mais la vie sépare ceux qui s’aiment
Tout doucement, sans faire du bruit
Et la mer efface sur le sable
Les pas des amants désunis
SOLO OVER VERSE

Oh, We laughed and we cried at how they
treated you so bad
You said I was the best you’d ever had
I don’t miss you at all, my darling
Until those leaves start to fall etc.

Les pas des amants désunis
Les pas des amants désunis
Track Name: No More Goodbyes
NO MORE GOODBYES
de Ness/Atkinson 2010

VERSE 1
The day you gave your heart to me
Roses burst to bloom
Birds they came down from the trees
To serenade to me
The day you gave your heart to me
Dancers howled at the moon
Nothing left for me to do, Our soul’s sing in tune
Nothing left for me to do, Our soul’s sing in tune


VERSE 2
On the night when we kissed
Stars they rose in your eyes
My hands they found the notes to play
There’ll be no more goodbyes
On the night when we kissed
Dancers howled at the moon
Nothing left for me to do, Our soul’s sing in tune
Nothing left for me to do, Our soul’s sing in tune
Track Name: Storyteller
Storyteller
By Jen de Ness

Verse 1 My favorite teller of stories, I love you.
You fill my heart and my mind in so many ways.
I will look to you, through all my days
Then I will see the best story you could tell me.
Your flight to be free. Your flight to be free.



Bridge You fill my heart and my mind with the story
You have to give.
I sing so deep inside of you,
So may we live, so may we live, so may we live?
Verse 2
My favorite teller of stories, I love you.
Our story of love is deeper than the ocean
May it never stand still, Be in constant motion
I’m tired of building these walls
I think I’ll Jump, jump, jump to where love calls
I think I’ll jump to where love calls

Bridge You fill my heart and my mind with the story
You have to give.
I sing so deep inside of you,
So may we live, so may we live, so may we live

SOLO SAX

(Counter Melody Outro)
You are my favorite teller
(mmm oh you know you know you are my favorite, Teller)
You are my favorite teller of stories)
Mmm you know you are my favorite
You are my favorite teller
I love you.
(I love you)
You are my favorite teller of stories
(Teller of stories)
You are my favorite teller of stories
And I love you.
