Biography

I began singing solos in my church at the age of four. Growing up in a small town, I was all the rage, and I got to sing at the Silver Queen Festival (a corn festival ... wow I'm cool) when I was nine. After moving from Nowhere, OH to Bradenton, FL, I wrote my first song at the age of twelve. Ever since, I have been constantly writing new lyrics, and I currently have over 140 sets in a notebook in my closet. I wrote my first song with piano, Numbness, at the age of fourteen. With the help of Pritchard's Pianos, I recorded a sort of 3-track demo titled "Clocks Ticked Slower." I later returned to Pritchard's to record the 10-track disc, "The Theoretical Freefall." I am in the process of recording the 4-track disc, "Asleep in an Awake Sort of Way," with other instrumentalists.

Lyrics

Innocence Lost

Written By: Jana Fisher

You were the serpent
I was Eve
So young and worthless
Easily deceived
I trusted you
Though half-truths you'd tell
When saying how you loved me
You meant how you loved yourself

One last trip through paradise
Was it worth the cost?
To see through hell with opened eyes
My innocence lost

"Why play it safe
When you can be free?"
Such was the poison
You offered to me
Feeding the longing
Which haunts me, it does
Just to die for you
Though I already was

One last trip through paradise
Was it worth the cost?
To see through hell with opened eyes
My innocence lost

Would I go back if I were given the chance?
Would I risk once more to fall into your hands?
There's no going back now; it's the price I have paid
But I will refuse you the anger you crave

One last trip through paradise
Not knowing the cost
I saw through hell with open eyes
My innocence lost

But your love is behind me now
This is what I've bought:
A second chance, but with the strength
Of innocence lost

Parachute

Written By: Jana Fisher

I had all these ideas of how love should go
Like playing hard to get and taking things slow
But I’d miss so much if I pushed you away
Like kissing in the rain and still feeling safe
I’m convinced you’ll find something wrong with me
‘Cause nothing this real should ever be
And feeling this good was meant to be a myth
I never knew I could dance like this

Who needs lemonade when your lemons are sweet?
You’ve been here all this time, that I can’t believe
‘Cause I’ve been looking for you; were you trying to find me?
If there’s room on the plane, please save me a seat
Mold my hand to the shape of yours and I’ll jump with you
‘Cause you make me brave enough to let you be my parachute

I really don’t mind if I never sleep
‘Cause time is short, and my secrets won’t keep
So get some caffeine so you can stay awake
And tell me you’re okay with what’s at stake
The problem with falling in love is the way
That I never fall out, but even if you won’t stay
You’re still worth the risk, and I’ll give us a try
It’s different this time, though I’m not sure why

Who needs lemonade when your lemons are sweet?
You’ve been here all this time, that I can’t believe
‘Cause I’ve been looking for you; were you trying to find me?
If there’s room on the plane, please save me a seat
Mold my hand to the shape of yours and I’ll jump with you
‘Cause you make me brave enough to let you be …

I wanna see who you really are
Kiss me again but don’t wreck the car
Let yourself melt but don’t go too far
Don’t let me go ‘til I map out your scars

Who needs lemonade when your lemons are sweet?
You’ve been here all this time, that I can’t believe
‘Cause I’ve been looking for you; were you trying to find me?
If there’s room on the plane, please save me a seat
Mold my hand to the shape of yours and I’ll jump with you
‘Cause you make me brave enough

Who needs lemonade when your lemons are sweet?
You’ve been here all this time, that I can’t believe
‘Cause I’ve been looking for you; were you trying to find me?
If there’s room on the plane, please save me a seat
Mold my hand to the shape of yours
Mold my hand to the shape of …
Mold my hand to the shape of yours and I’ll jump with you
‘Cause you make me brave enough to let you be
Won’t you be
Please just be my parachute
My parachute
You’re my parachute

I Don't Wanna Run

Written By: Jana Fisher

I'm tired of trying
Tired of fighting
This fight I know I'll never win
I'm tired of clichés
Tired of long days
Of waiting for my life to begin

I don't wanna run no more
I don't wanna hide no more
'Cause when I see your light shine down on me
I realize you chase so faithfully

I'm tired of yearning
Tired of searching
For something else to make me whole
I'm tired of weeping
Tired of seeking
Always to have complete control

I don't wanna run no more
I don't wanna hide no more
'Cause when I see your light shine down on me
I realize you chase so faithfully

Since I turned away
I've felt so alone
But you stood in my way
Wishing I'd come home

I don't wanna run no more
I don't wanna hide no more
'Cause when I see your light shine down on me
I realize you chase so faithfully

I don't wanna run no more
I don't wanna hide no more
Even when I beg you to let me leave
Still you chase so faithfully
I don't wanna run
I don't wanna run
I don't wanna run
