  1. Ella Jane

From the recording Ella Jane

Lyrics

Words / Brian Mobley
Music / Brian Mobley and Andy Robinson

Has anybody here seen Ella Jane? She’s gone away like so many other things
Tell her I came round to ease the pain, mine not hers, but I guess she knew that anyway or she’d be around
Instead of down-town without me. She’d make a sound, put her arms around, never, never doubt me

In May when all the world was mine to know, I breathed it in but I guess I breathe to slow
In June I saw the rising of the sun but I’m not the only one no I’m not the only one
To make mistakes then carry on and you get no breaks yeah you get no breaks
Everything goes wrong so you pull up stakes instead of staying too long, should have stayed too long

July and I’m the emporer of Rome but it’s not too long ‘fore what’s revealed is just a paper throne
August and now I’m barely hanging on to those small gains, what little remains when you make mistakes
Then carry on and you get no breaks yeah you get no breaks
Everything goes wrong so you pull up stakes instead of staying too long, should have stayed too long

September and I’ve got nowhere to go, I call her name but she must not hear me
October and I’ve go no place to run, I put the blame on those most dear to me
November finds me cold and all alone, everything is gone, everything is gone
December watch me shiver to the bone ‘cause I’m all alone so far from home

Has anybody here seen Ella Jane...
