lyrics

JASON
Writer: Janey Schram and Dennis Pereca

Song performed by Melanie in concert.

Kind words are easy to say without passion
Never thought you'd leave me this way, you were only passin'
Tell me what can I do with my heart, now that it's broken
You watch it crumble apart then you left unspoken

Tell me Jason, do you think I'm gonna go on
Chasin' you all around the whole damn world?
It's your life but not mind

I said Jason, after all the long conversations
You took your clothes and you're leaving town
Gonna find a place in New England
But I know you'll keep on runnin' around
Oh damn can't sit still feelin'

Heard a song on the radio, had me reminiscin'
I never noticed those tender words, guess I never listened
'Bout a man in a travelling show, all his fine women
He'd go from town to town all in fine linen

Tell me Jason, do you think I'm gonna go on
Chasin' you all around the whole damn world?
It's your life, but not mind

I said Jason, after all the long conversations
You took your clothes and you're leaving town
Gonna find a place in New England
But I know you'll keep on runnin' around
Oh damn can't sit still feelin'
