about

Where goes pride? Sanity? Love?

Collaborating with the writers and producers who have worked with such acts as Jason Mraz, Corinne Bailey Rae and Elliott Yamin…

Jess Furman’s new EP, Take Me Back, is a mischievous nod to the things we leave behind…reflective of the humor, nostalgia and hope with which we use to reclaim ourselves in the wake of life's turbulent ways.

Track Name: Unlucky
Love - pulls a string and you unravel
you know that it can be the sweetest thing
or just another poison apple

Oh Love - Russian roulette with your emotions
Spins the wheel you don't know where it goes
too captivated by the motion

And Oh - why do we even waste our time
through all of the tears -- we cry

(CHORUS)
We keep hoping that we're not - unlucky in love
Just another heart break - closer to the right one
With every chance that you take - there's a risk that you run
that you - won't always be unlucky in love

(VERSE 2)
Love - a mysterious condition
Can be the cause of all your lonely nights
or be the antidote you're missing

Oh love - cupid shoot me with your arrow
I'm sick of waiting for your crazy train
Just give me breadcrumbs I can follow --

And Oh - why do I even waste my time
through all of these tears - I've cried

(TO CHORUS)

(BRIDGE)
So tell me somethin' - does it cross your mind?
Why we long for somethin' - that makes us crazy half the time
I wonder why we even try

(CHORUS)
Track Name: This Home
They tore down our building
where we used live

And I suddenly feel out of place
All our memories somehow erased

I know that it's selfish
After all of these years
When everything changes
I thought that you'd always be there
This home that we shared

Plaster and concrete
just pieces remain
And all our memories all feel the same
Track Name: Take Me Back
(VERSE1)
Oh my god - did I run naked through the neighbors yard?
I hope I don't become an internet star
mama will be mad

1 tequila two three four - there might have even been a couple more
and now I'm crawling on the bathroom floor - looking for my phone

'cause I know that I should have been somewhere by now
but the room won't stop spinnin' around

(CHORUS)
Won't you take me back - Take me back again
You know it's all a bit hazy - I might of got a lil' crazy
Take me back - Won't you take me back again
I can't totally remember - it was the best night ever


(VERSE2)
There's my phone
and pictures of me with a garden gnome
I think I might have even taken it home
why would I do that

I must have been thinking of you - looks like I got your name tattooed
with a circle and a line crossed through
just in case I forget

And I swear that I should have been somewhere by now
but the room won't stop spinning around

(TO CHORUS)


(BRIDGE)
4pm - and I'm just dragging myself into bed
Each footstep an explosion goin' off in my head
Track Name: In The Dark
It’s gone
Wonder if it was gone all along
Wonder if it always felt this wrong wrong wrong - not loving you
And I wonder if I am just falling apart
Due to the idle excuse of my heart
From wondering if this love will ever make good
On all the promises we thought it could

So I’ll wait
Sitting down in the dark
Watching as all of it falls falls falls away from me

And knowing that I am just falling apart
Due to the idle excuse of my heart
From wondering if this love will ever make good
On all the promises we thought it could

‘Cause now I finally see
Now I finally see
I let love make a fool out of me

'Cause it’s gone
Wonder if it was gone all along
Wonder if it always felt this wrong wrong wrong not loving you
and I hope you can't tell that I'm just falling apart
Due to the idle excuse of my heart
From wondering if this love could ever make good
On all the promises we thought it could
I'm wondering if your love will ever make good
On all the promises we thought it could

‘Cause now I finally see
now I finally see
How much love made a fool out of me
How much love made a fool out of me
Track Name: Get Back Up
(VERSE1)
Hands are on the guard rail
toes dipped in the water
You're telling me it's not fair
You need a little longer

You watch from the side-lines
while all this time is just passing you by
Did you ever stop to question why?

(CHORUS)
Cause' life will try to break you - Love will take your heart
these moments will make you - become who you are
It's not about the false starts - it's not about the end
if every time you fall - you get back up again

(VERSE 2)
You say nothing ever goes right
you collect all of these stories
of every time that you failed
clinging to the memories

Draw these guidelines
convince yourself - you've fallen behind
While all this time is passing you by...

(TO CHORUS)

(BRIDGE)
Why let all of this time pass you by
All of this time is just passing you by
If you ever stopped to question why -
You would Know

(TO FINAL CHORUS)

(ALT SM. Chorus)
Can't avoid the fall - Just get back up again
If you're too afraid to lose - you're never gonna win
Track Name: Leavin
(VERSE 1)
I can't cure what's wrong with you
Hands pressed to the door outside
your room
If you only knew

I'm trying hard to keep my grip
(It's) like hanging onto a sinking ship
all alone
Don't pretend you don't know

(But) water pours in from all sides
I hold my breath and close my eyes-
what if there's nothing left to say but - good-bye
So oh I'm -


(CHORUS)
Leavin' - leavin'
Don't you know I'm Leavin' - leavin'
Don't you know
You don't know what you're missing
You don't know - So oh I'm
(x2)
I'm cutting the chord - I'm not towing your line
Yeah - I'm setting you lose, gonna leave you behind
You don't know what you're missing
You won't know what you're missing
'Cause I'm Leavin' Leavin'

(VERSE 2)
Like strangers on a crowded street
I feel you look - my way but our
eyes never meet
it's so bittersweet

I can't keep you close to me
I can't keep holding onto what this could be
And you know what I need

All these words you could say - but hide
You'd never think to compromise
There's nothing left for me to say but - good-bye

(CHORUS)
Leavin' - leavin'
Don't you know I'm Leavin' - leavin'
Don't you know
You don't know what you're missing
You don't know what you're missing
(x2)

(BRIDGE)
I've been waiting such a long time
Always looking for a searchlight
but now I think I finally see - I see yeah
