about

Terri Hendrix
Places In Between
VISUALIZE SHERYL CROW in overalls, or maybe Ani Di-Franco with a down-home Texas perspective: That's Terri Hendrix, the singer-songwriter-entrepreneur-czarina, in a nutshell. Born and raised in San Antonio and now living in San Marcos, Hendrix is a walking advertisement for sunny confidence and boundless enthusiasm, qualities that she's been polishing along with her bright, sassy vocals and accomplished guitar playing over the course of three albums. Places in Between demonstrates how she's taken those talents one step further, exuding an innate sense of street smarts and a keen eye for detail on all fifteen tracks, particularly "It's a Given" and "Places in Between" - tunes that are simultaneously intimate and universal, telling stories that hold a listener even when the melody might not. Besides, how can you not love a singer who pines for a flush toilet and central air in her dream home, as she does on "My Own Place"? To pull that off suggests quite a career in the making. Keep your eyes and ears open as she whizzes past.

Track Name: Prelude
Instrumental
Track Name: Goodtime Van
Susan headed out in her Goodtimes Van
She took off to good times land
With no plans and a dog for company
Susan waved goodbye to me

I said Suz it's what you choose
You got to do what you got to do
There's gunna come a day that you're gunna reminisce
About the days you were better than this

4414 Desert View 78216
Who you are
Where you been
Are so much better than this
So much better than this yeah

In a good times van you're gonna go everyplace
I'll only dream of
You'll roll back the seat to make a bigger space
To sleep and wake and make a lil' love
Suz stay away from that vino
Keep yourself up with a cup of cappucino
Hit the road till it hits you back
And when it does cry till you laugh

You are better than runnin'
Better than hidin'
Better than decidin'
What you wanna do
Till it's too late

Fake it till you make it
Make it till you can
See the sunshine through
The darkness in a plan
You might bite your nails to the nubs
When you're wired to the tire
That the road rubs

Susan stay gone in your Goodtimes Van
You'll make it big
In your good times land
If I was younger
I'd do what you've done
But I have grown roots
Where I said there'd be none
Track Name: It's a Given
Everything in motion
Between the moon and the ocean

Stops when I hear your name

My head is in line
With my heart this time

And my body feels the same


Every time I see your face
My world falls into place

My thoughts take flight

Tell me that you feel
Tell me that you feel
Tell me that you feel
The way I do tonight


It's a given
It's a given
It’s a given
Don't you take it away

Every single color
Fades into the other

Every time we say goodbye

You're my compass in the dark

You guide my heart

As my dreams solidify


I doubt
I could do without you
Yeah, our deal is still on
Tell me that you feel
Tell me that you feel
Tell me that you feel
The way I have all along 



It's a given
It's a given
It’s a given
Don't you take it away

Calling
I’m calling your name

Although I know
You're nowhere in sight

I feel you
Just the same
Even though you are not with me
I feel you tonight



Everything in motion
Between the moon and the ocean
Stops when I hear your name

My head is in line
With my heart this time
My body feels the same 

Track Name: Places in Between
Sweet sweet Betty with the big blonde hair and the dark brown roots

Always has her bright pink lipstick goin’

With a lil’ bit showin’ on her left front tooth

Sweet sweet Betty meets me at the bar
On the corner of 11th and Green

To talk about politics and lunatics And places in between


Lil’ Jenn has her world in a swirl
’Cause she fell in love with a coffee girl
Fell in love at the corner café
With a 20 year old who swings both ways

Lil’ Jenn meets me at the bar
On the corner of 11th and Green

To talk about politics and lunatics
And places in between


There are places in between

I’ve been here goin’ on 10 years

I told him all of my dreams

He said he’d buy me a flat in New York City



Debbie dates a millionaire she capped her teeth and dyed her hair

Betty and Jenn and me all swear she’s never paid her tab 

There’s no choice if you know what I mean

The only game in town we got is this scene

Someday we say we’ll make a getaway
In a limo and not a cab


There are places in between

I’ve been here goin’ on 10 years

I told him all of my dreams

He said he’d buy me a flat in New York City



Sweet sweet Betty can smoke and eat and talk at the same time

She’s doin’ hair and make-up at Claire’s and says if I did I’d fit in fine

There’s somethin’ in a town this small that I find way too tall

I fear I’ll get stuck here ‘cause I can’t climb

There are places in between

I’ve been here goin’ on 10 years

I told him all of my dreams

He said he’d buy me a flat in New York City


Track Name: Wish
Three days in a wishing well
It’s too early to tell if it will come up roses

I suppose if you gotta penny
Give me the skinny and throw it in


Three days in a wishing well
Hope has died

In spite of all you tried
You’re in a tailspin



Oh why bother at all
Get your hopes up
Just to feel them fall

On the ground
On the ground
On the ground
On the ground

Underwater
I can tell
The secrets
At the bottom of the well 



Three days
Times three
Times you
Times me 

I can hear it in your spirit
I can see it in your eyes

Somehow
You wanna know
Wanna know
Wanna know right now

If I will allow
You to rise



Hey are you ready to bail
Throw it to hell and let it be
History

Listen to me
Like I listen to you

I’ll lead you on
Long after you’ve gone

You’ll never know
I’ll never tell

The secrets
At the bottom of the well

Oh why bother at all
Get your hopes up
Just to feel them fall

On the ground
On the ground
On the ground
On the ground

Underwater
I can tell
The secrets
At the bottom of the well 


Track Name: Eagles
If you wanna fly with eagles son
You need to learn to live like one
Look at my life
Look how little I have done done done
If you wanna fly
With eagles son


I love you ’lil baby
But I’ve gotta let you go
You’ve taken and you’ve taken
Till you’ve stopped to grow
I’ll watch over you as you fly, fly, fly

But ‘lil baby I can’t be your sky


When you see that horizon

Believe in what lays beyond

When you feel
Nothin’ but confusion

The wind against you
Can be used to fly on

You gotta fly
Fly on

You can plan and plan or you can just do

You gotta dig in deep and find your groove

Sing to your rhythm mama
Sing to your pain pain pain

Let nobody take your voice away


I love you ’lil baby
But I’ve got to let you go

It hurts me
More than you will ever know

But eagles do
As they have done, done, done

When they wanna fly
With the eagles son

Track Name: Joy or Sorrow
Without doubt
And without fear

May you find
Some comfort here

May there be hope
To help you cope

When what you need
Is nowhere near



Make your mark
Unto these years

Shape your world
With salt and tears

Carry on
When your will has gone

Be it joy
Or sorrow

Given time 

Given faith

Given courage
To embrace

Changes
As they each take place

Be it joy
Or sorrow



Grab this earth
Just like a wheel

You’ll eat some dirt
As you get the feel

Keep it sane
Keep it real

Be it joy
Or sorrow

Amid the noise
Amid the haste

May your soul take root
In open space

Rise above your worries
With truth and grace

Be it joy
Or sorrow

Given time 

Given faith

Given courage
To embrace

Changes
As they each take place

Be it joy
Or sorrow


Track Name: My Own Place
I want a vintage bathtub with a circular curtain rod
Make it porcelain with brass claw feet
I want a shower that gushes a toilet that flushes
I think I need a sink that doesn't leak

I want central air and central heat
In a good neighborhood on a good little street
Don't want no crack in my foundation or my neighbors doin' crack
Make it everything I have and everything I lack

When this whole world is in my face
I wanna shut the door and hide in my own place

I want instant credit give it to me honey
How am I gonna get it if you won't loan me the money
How am I gonna get it
My american dream
If you give me the ice
And you keep the cream

Your concrete world has gotta cut me some slack
I gotta climb out from between the cracks
With your interest rates
So high high high
How am I ever gonna
Own what I buy

When this whole world is in my face
I wanna shut the door and hide in my own place

I want kitchen tile and hardwood floors
A brand new roof and a wrap around porch
I want a wooden deck underneath some trees
On a hill with a view I wanna do what I please

Your concrete world has gotta rise from the dead
I gotta wake up in my own place in my own bed
With all the doors unlocked
With all the windows open
And not a not a care
Not a not a care
Not a not a care inside of my head

When this whole world is in my face
I wanna shut the door and hide in my own place

Oh here I am
You have to have been here to understand
You have to have been here
And done this to see
I need a payday
I need a windfall
I need to get the key

To my own place
My own place
I wanna shut the door and hide
In my own place
Track Name: Throw My Love
I throw my love against the wall
I watch it slide as it falls
And I think to myself
What did you do that for

I walk away
I hear sweet things that you say
And then I turn around and I come back for more
I throw my love against the wall again again

I throw my love against the wall
That seems to be my fate
It keeps me up and walkin’ through
These nights I come to hate

You can turn somethin’ into nothin’ at all
And you can make a big thing
Out of somethin’ real small
I throw my love against the wall again again
I throw my love against the wall again again

I threw my love one time too many
I used to have friends now I don’t have any
Who will listen to me
I’m feelin’ all alone
It’s like I got not choice
I gotta hear your voice
I don’t like to see
What you bring out in me
I throw my love and I wait by the phone

I throw my love against the wall again again
I throw my love against the wall again again
Track Name: Invisible Girl
I was at a bar with my boyfriend
And my best friend Jennifer
She was looking at him he was lookin’ at her
Cause I am the invisible girl invisible girl
Oh I am the invisible girl invisible girl yea yea
She drank her beer then she ran her tongue
Along the rim of the glass
She giggled when he wiggled
And she said to my boyfriend
You got a nice ass
Cause I am the invisible girl invisible girl
Oh I am the invisible girl invisible girl

Invisible girl
Invisible girl
I look out from my invisible world
No one sees me as real
I am invisible

I left them at the bar I waited in my car
And I drove to her place
By the time I walked in
He was already done and she was slappin’ his face
I could have told her before she did it
That my man took less than half a minute
I laughed at them both I think that they heard
But they couldn’t see me so they didn’t say a word

Invisible girl
Invisible girl
I look out from my invisible world
No one sees me as real
I am invisible

They’re never gonna see me as real
I’m always gonna be the only one to feel
Anything at all
Every time I fall
Call me the absentee

They’re never gonna see
I’m never gonna be
Visualized
I’ve realized
When I cut the ties
No one but me
Is ever gonna see
Ever gonna see

The invisible girl
Invisible girl
I look out from my invisible world
No one sees me as real
I am invisible
Track Name: Reprise
Instrumental
Track Name: Moon on the Water
It's hard to see
See in the darkness
Hard to find
Find your way home
And if there is no home when you get there
It’s hard to reach your way out of being alone t

This canyon has an echo
Like the hollow in my heart a
And the wind has a sigh
Like the soft in a cry
And I am just the bitter
In a woman growing wise
Oh moon on the water
Help me to rise

Hope is to the flame
Like passion is to romance
You’ve got the candle inside the dreamer
See it light their eyes
No one can see me
When I’m cold as ashes
Burned out
And tired
Like the fade of the sky

This canyon has an echo
Like the hollow in my heart a
And the wind has a sigh
Like the soft in a cry
And I am just the bitter
In a woman growing wise
Oh moon on the water
Help me to rise
