Goodtime Van 03:06
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

It's a Given 03:45
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

Places in Between (free) 03:39
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

Wish 03:47
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

Eagles (free) 03:09
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

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

My Own Place (free) 03:35
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

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

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

Moon on the Water (free) 03:50
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

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.
