My music is its own genre. I have written in so many different styles that you can't really describe it as just one thing. R&B, folk and rock have all contributed to my unique sound, and with a classical background, I am able to adapt my music to any form. My music is me.

Lyrics

Moonlight in a Jar

Written By: Beth Reynolds

It was more than 20 years ago
Though it doesn't seem that far
When you and Phil biked up the hill
and I met you with your car
We sat and gazed up at the moon
And counted every star
And now I wish I'd kept that night
And caught the moonlight in a jar

Chorus
Life seems so hard sometimes
That I'd like to put it down
I'd like to pack my bags
Take a train right out of town

Then I think of friends I know
What they're going through right now
The heartaches that they're dealing with
Gives me my stength, somehow
And trouble doesn't have the power
To leave me with a scar
When I recall the magic of
That moonlight in a jar

Chorus

Sometimes when I think of then
And what I've done so far
When happiness seems like a song
Not in my repertoire
Then I think of when we sat
Wishing on that evening star
And I know I've got to learn to make
My own moonlight in a jar

Chorus
