about

This song is about that person in your life you just can't say no to.

lyrics

Too easily addictive
that twinkle in your eye.
I shouldn't even let myself
look back and wonder why.
No matter, how many
times I write it down,
Or say it to myself
or even say it right out loud,
it slips through my memory.
That you're no good, you're no good for me.

Small doses doled out over time.
Is all I want to take
instead of give you all of mine.
Because I don't have
all that much to spare.
I know you'll just end up
taking more than your share.
You slip, in with your fancy words.
Vaguely like something I've heard.
Ohhh. Something I've heard.

You are not and everyday thing.
When I'm already over saturated.
I've been full then I've been drained
just to be topped up again.

La la la la la la la la la la la la

A step in your direction
sets an easy place.
A downward momentum
that leads to just one place.
The quickest line
between A and B.
A being you
and B being me.
We slip, underneath.
A real, I said a real easy reach.

Rationality suspended,
they're somewhere
been misplaced.
And all my firm resolve's
been temporarily erased.
There' no need to justify,
until the morning when I open my eyes
and slip,
out from under your spell.
How easily I fell.

You are not and everyday thing.
When I'm already over saturated.
I've been full then I've been drained,
just to be topped up again.

La la la la la la la la la la la la

about

Jess Vaira Vancouver, British Columbia

With an honest, sound that ranges from round and soulful to light and airy, Jess is a live performer, collaborator and session artist in much demand for her dynamic and engaging loop pedal performances.

If Eddie Vedder and Ella Fitzgerald were making Sunday brunch for Ani Difranco, Imogen Heap and Erykah Badu, they might be listening to Jess in the background.
