It took forever to fall. I can remember it all: You sinking down down down down to where I can't hear you call. I can still see your hair. It's just floating there. And the dress you were in is beginning to tear.
O, Ada
O, Ada
They say you won't be coming home tonight.

She's got death at her heels. It's been sniffing around. It follows her day after day after day after tracking her down. I've seen it before. She can't do it again. Does somebody somewhere have any strength they'd be willing to lend?

Not long ago, things were so different. Not long ago, we were so innocent.

Like a boarded up house with a truck in the yard, she doesn't have anyone to call her own and it's really quite hard. But the clouds overhead are growing quite large. She is stably, stably, stably unable to take on this charge.

Not long ago, things were so different. Not long ago, we were so innocent.

Take these feelings away. Stretch them out across another day so I can hear you when you say that you love me. 'Cause baby, you love me. I know that you love me, but do you know all of me?

Should've said it before. Should've laid out my plans. Should've spun them the tale I'd been meaning to tell. Now it's out of my hands.

Folk-jazz outfit, The Good Hope, blends the smokily textured vocals of singer-songwriter Jen Cork, with the instrumental stylings of Harry Aceto (upright bass), Brian Earle (clarinet), and Michael Wellen (drums). These elements come together to create a warm sound that takes the listener on a sometimes danceable and sometimes pensive, but always rich exploration of death, learning, and love. ... more
