Biography

Jocelyn Scofield is an independent singer/songwriter, whose work has been compared to music legends Joni Mitchell and Carol King, as well as contemporary artists Sara Bareilles and Regina Spektor. She has performed in 25 states and traveled over 30,000 miles during the past four years performing at festivals, coffee houses, conferences, concert series and art fairs, among other venues.

She has independently released two albums. Her 2005 CD, �This Life,� received rave reviews from many publications. Indie-Music Magazine called her a �true composer � with a voice like a gutsier Fiona Apple.� CollectedSounds.com wrote: �It�s an excellent showcase for her strong vocals and piano playing. Vocally she has the same force as Jewel once had, and some of Fiona Apple's jazz inflections.�

Scofield, who has co-written songs with Grammy Award winners and hit country songwriters, is recording a new album this summer.

Lyrics

Gravity Takes the Lead

Written By: Jocelyn Scofield

VERSE 1:
As I was drifting through space
An angel told me I could rely on her grace
To hold me I could rely on this place
Till I found home

VERSE 2:
The tips of my toes they don't know
They're not touching the ground
But my eyes see below
The distance I'd fall down if I let go

CHORUS:
So, I'll stay lost
With my fingers crossed
Hoping I’ll end up where I'm supposed to be
When let gravity take the lead

VERSE 3:
The pictures the stars paint for me
Are beckonings of what my life would be
Had I only stayed on my feet
No thank you, please

CHORUS:
So, I'll stay lost
With my fingers crossed
Hoping I’ll end up where I'm supposed to be
When let gravity take the lead

BRIDGE:
Be patient, be patient
And patiently
I’m waiting, I’m waiting expectantly
But for now

CHORUS (2X):
I'm lost
With my fingers crossed
Hoping I’ll end up where I'm supposed to be
When let gravity take the lead

I'll stay lost
With my fingers crossed
Hoping I’ll end up where I'm supposed to be
When let gravity take the lead

No Next Time

Written By: Scofield/Hahn

VERSE:
I am at home
Sitting by the waiting
I am sick of
Sitting while you're out playing
And I been thinking
In these couple hours of waiting
This was your last
Chance to show me you were changing

PRE-CHORUS:
When you come home tonight
And give those same tired lines
I’ll let you say what you say
Then walk away

CHORUS:
Tell me you want me
Tell me you need me
Go on get down, down on your knees
Tell me you're sorry
Tell me you'll call me
That’s what you do, don’t you baby
Say darling please forgive me
And I can guarantee
I won't be waiting here for you next time
There is no next time
No, no, no next time

VERSE 2:
You look confused
I can see you brain a working
This is not some, some clever little game
Just me hurting

PRE-CHORUS:
Funny these are the times
You use those same allibies
So go on and say what you say
I'll walk away

CHORUS:
Tell me you want me
Tell me you need me
Go on get down, down on your knees
Tell me you're sorry
Tell me you'll call me
That’s what you do, don’t you baby
Say darling please forgive me
And I can guarantee
I won't be waiting here for you next time
There is no next time
No, no, no next time

BRIDGE:
Hey, don't you look at me that way
This is not my fault
Honestly, didn't you see it coming
No, no I don't believe you

CHORUS:
Tell me you want me
Tell me you need me
Go on get down, down on your knees
Tell me you're sorry
Tell me you'll call me
That’s what you do, don’t you baby
Say darling please forgive me
And I can guarantee
I won't be waiting here for you next time
There is no next time
No, no, no next time

Tell me, tell me
Say darling please forgive me
And I can guarantee
I won't be waiting here for you next time
There is no next time
No, no, no next time
