Biography

Shelley Jacobson

Shelley has a lot to smile about these days.
She has earned the respect of both her peers
and fans and has found a niche within the
songwriting community of Nashville.

She has co-written with top writers as well as being invited to appear at the world famous Bluebird Café and other prestigious venues.

She has been signed to New York promoter Gerry Van Den Berg and will perform with her band in New York City in the spring of 2004 at New York’s Central Park for a break out concert.

She also opened for top rock band FOREIGNER in July 2003 at a sold out venue in Ontario.

Her last trip to Nashville resulted in her getting signed with Nashville plugger Gayle Richardson from OnTrack Entertainment. Gayle will be representing Shelley's catalog.

SHELLEY’s high quality songwriting has attracted many admirers around the world.

Grammy Award winner Harriet Schock (“That Ain’t No Way To Treat A Lady”) said of Shelley “There’s a passion in Shelley’s writing that I don’t always hear in records today - memorable melody, excellent production, strong vocals and commitment to the subject matter - the real person behind the song.”

Pat Pattison, lyric writing professor and author of several world renowned songwriting books says "Shelley Jacobson is a real talent. She writes, plays, sings and performs - all very well. Give her a listen."

Lyrics

That's Where The Truth Lies

Written By: Shelley Jacobson & Omar T. Ales

THAT’S WHERE THE TRUTH LIES

VERSE#1:
I NEVER KNEW THREE WORDS
COULD EVER MEAN SO MUCH
I NEVER THOUGHT I’D FEEL
BREATHLESS FROM YOUR TOUCH

CLIMB:
WHEN YOUR LIPS MEET MINE
I JUST CAN’T FIGHT
THIS FEELING I’M FEELING INSIDE

CHORUS:
DON’T HAVE TO THINK TWICE
I’VE MADE UP MY MIND
I’VE SEARCHED MY HEART
THAT’S WHERE THE TRUTH LIES
NOW I REALIZE
I’VE FOUND LOVE THIS TIME
I’VE SEARCHED MY HEART
THAT’S WHERE THE TRUTH LIES

VERSE#2
I’VE NEVER FELT SO SAFE
WRAPPED INSIDE YOUR ARMS
I FEEL EACH BREATH YOU TAKE
AND THE BEATING OF YOUR HEART

CLIMB:
I JUST CAN’T BELIEVE
THIS FANTASY
DON’T WANNA WAKE UP FROM THIS DREAM

CHORUS:
DON’T HAVE TO THINK TWICE
I’VE MADE UP MY MIND
I’VE SEARCHED MY HEART
THAT’S WHERE THE TRUTH LIES
NOW I REALIZE
I’VE FOUND LOVE THIS TIME
I’VE SEARCHED MY HEART
THAT’S WHERE THE TRUTH LIES

BRIDGE:
I ALMOST GAVE UP AND THEN YOU CAME AROUND
HELPING ME PUT MY FEET BACK ON THE GROUND
YOU TAUGHT ME TO TRUST AND I LEARNED HOW TO LOVE
NOW I JUST CAN’T GET ENOUGH

CHORUS 2X/OUT
