Who or what would you say has been your greatest inspiration when it comes to your music?

Well, I have a lot of artists inspirations like Billy Joel and Patty Griffin and you know, Carol King and James Taylor and uh Elton John. A lot of kind of Old School artists although Patty Griffin is pretty recent. But mostly I just get inspired by what is happening in my life and all kinds of music that inspires me and I want to write something that is similar to that. That is usually what I get into. But I feel my inspirations are kind of changing a little bit right now so we’ll see what comes from that.

[...]I absolutely love the song Safe and John&Jr and I was wondering if you had plans to put any of those songs on CD or available for fans to hear?

Safe I haven’t sung since that night since I sang it at the Hard Rock Café but John&Jr I definitely would like to record at some point. It’s not gonna be on this album but it’s still sitting on my iTunes you know, waiting to be officially recorded so you just have to wait a little bit. Aspettare, that is how you say wait in Italian, aspettare. Okay, I’m learning Italian so.

I would like to know why you always wear that pinky ring all the time?

[...]I wear that ring, it’s very personal to me but I can tell you that it’s from a really, really close friend of mine at a really pivotal moment in my life and it’s a reminder of who I am and to sort of never loose sigh of that so I carry that around with me.

If You’re Missing (Come On Home)

Here I am
Red high heels
Yellow dress
Perfect nails
Lips like velvet
Don’t you want me, baby?

I’ve been here and back again
It never answers anything
Where was I when they handed out the knowing you are loved?

Don’t it get lonely out there, little darling
Well come on home
I’ll be here with open arms
To hold you
When you arrive
I’ll be here with open arms
To show you
Where you belong
If you’re missing come on home

Then Slowly Grows (Come To Me)

I’m a frantic un-satisfied woman
When the day grows long
and I can’t seem to settle down
Then slowly grows our little faith
I hang my head on
Everyday my dreams will get bigger
Then I hear there’s nothing
I can dream hasn’t been dreamt before
So I water my little faith
And hope for the better
I know there’s so much more for me
I know there’s so much more
So much more than I can see

So won’t you come to me
I’ll be the first one waiting
I’ll be the last to leave
Promise you’ll come to me
I’ll give you anything
I’ll give everything you need

Devil's Archerist

This day probably tore me apart
And I didn’t even know it
This day probably ate up my heart
And I got nothing to show for it
Why, why is it so, so, so easy to compromise

This fog is like strawberry pie
But it keeps you keep on reaching
Here I am just watching me die
Just uh watching death that uh coming up
Coming up creeping
Why, why don’t you start
Calling me ungrateful
Oh yeah…

Keep me away
I've got no will to fight
Keep me away
I'm running to the light
Cuz I don’t wanna lose your way
With these devil, devil archerist


Woe is me, something dramatic like I could be
Love's labor lost, before it began
I’m not tryin’ to be clever
I’m just sayin’ what I am

Oh, I’m turning over will
And I’m cleaning up this holy mess I made
Everything’s fine
Everything’s okay
Everybody loves a fool
Everybody walks away
Everybody walks away

Crazy Girls

I’ve been behind on the events of the past 7 days
I’ve been sleeping in my bed
And missing you like sometimes crazy girls do

I’ve been hanging like a child onto this photograph of us
It was taken on a bus across town the last time I saw you

And now this whole world is going ‘round
But it’s when you’re gone it really brings me down, down

Songs in My Pockets

Honey I just can't get around it anymore
You make me feel like home is where you are
And baby I just can't run around it every morn’n
It’s time that I believe it, home is where you are

Notes in my drawers, songs in my pockets,
Fragments of letters that you sent,
Leftover phone calls, cologne in the bath
I still have that bottle of Rosé

Staring at your photograph, tryin’ to take it down
There’s still a stirring in my heart

And honey I just can't get around it anymore
You make me feel like home is where you are
And baby I just can't run around it every morn’n
It’s time that I believe it, home is where you are


I never promised you a ray of light
I never promised there’d be sunshine every day
I’ll give you everything I have
The good, the bad

Why do you put me on a pedestal?
I’m so up high that I can’t see the ground below
So help me down you’ve got it wrong
I don’t belong there

One thing is clear
I wear a halo
I wear a halo when you look at me
But standing from here
You wouldn’t say so
You wouldn’t say so if you were me
And I, I just want to love you
Oh I, I just want to love you

- Elise

Elise, my dear, it looks amazing. I really don't know what else to say. I know you were nervous about it, but it came out stunning. LOVE IT.

Yay for Joy and her (slightly more than) 100 threads.
Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose.

*tip toes in quietly*

The opening posts are beautiful, Elise. Thanks to everyone that helped put it together (Stef, Michelle, Doreen, Alix, and Medine). I hope I'm not forgetting anyone. If I am, so sorry!

I seriously think that is the most gorgeous opening post ever on this board.


ETA: Now, I see why you wanted to wait until the board customization, Elise.

Thanks for the kind words, girls.

I did not do it alone, though. I have to give proper credit to everyone who helped.

Michelle (especially you! ) for the banner, the arts, the UJS cover, and the icons, and how can I forget, for taking charge of the polls and voting. You rock muchly! Stef, for my last minute request, I love it, I love it! And for the pics and the icons. Rach, for the arts and for the icons, too! They are lovely, as are all your work. Medine! For organizing the UJS, I have to say, I love how it all turned out, all the songs are beautiful. Doreen, Manda, Caroline and Viv for all your help, don't say it wasn't much, I really appreciate it. Renata and Krys for the lovely icons, I love them! Chelsea for the video with the Ashlee Simpson song, and Lauren for the other video, as well as for the art and icons. Alix, I'm still waiting for your vid. Amanda, for the title! You must be psychic because I was totally going to PM you this AM when I saw your PM, hee! Thanks so much, girlie.

I hope I didn't forget anyone.

So I'm totally laughing because I do realize I'm acting like I just won an award or something. LOL. But really, thanks to everyone, I didn't do it alone.

The poem I used is by T.P. Fikkert by the way, titled Her Beauty.

Lis- Eeee, this is the most freaking gorgeous thread I've ever seen, period. You totally outdid yourself. I've been just staring. There really just aren't any words. Thank you so much for doing all of this for this thread. I can't believe all of the goodies you included, it's out of control. I don't even know where to start. All of the art, and just everything, well, it's all beautiful.

Thanks to all of the girls who also worked so hard to put this together, especially; Stef, Michelle, Doreen, Renata, Rach, Chelsea, Lauren, Alix, and Medine. A huge shout out and thank you also goes to anyone who I may have missed.

I so have to go to bed in a few, but I can't wait to check everything out more tomorrow. Flove it!
