lyrics

So you’re fine with just what you see
Blinded by all of this hypocrisy
How could you be so fine with
Taking the back seat while it
All goes to shit

Where is your conscience?
Uh oh uh where is your soul?
What will be your reason when you’re just to damn old to?
Make the tiniest impact on the tiniest soul
It doesn’t take a miracle to help someone grow

To help someone grow
To help someone grow
To help someone grow

Today I saw an old man and he was in need
But people passed him by
They were consumed by their own greed
And his pleas for assistance they were
Gone with the wind
It broke my heart to witness them be so damn cold to him

Where is your conscience?
Where is your soul?
What will be your reason when you’re just to damn old to?
Make the tiniest impact on the tiniest soul
It doesn’t take a miracle to help someone grow

So I said, ‘dear sir, can I help you so?’
He said, ‘yes please my young lady,
I need some help I’m getting old’
And a tear of weakness trickled down the wrinkles on his cheek
Such a face of wisdom deserved so much more than this

Where is your conscience?
Where is your soul?
What will be your reason when you’re just to damn old to?
Make the tiniest impact on the tiniest soul
It doesn’t take a miracle to help someone grow
Where is your conscience?
Where is your soul?
What will be your reason when you’re just to damn old to?
Make the tiniest impact on the tiniest soul
It doesn’t take a miracle to help someone grow

about

Jess Cullen Vancouver, British Columbia

Jess's folk/rock/pop tunes resonate with catchy beats and witty, candid lyrics. Her self titled release isn’t your average debut independent album. It's the culmination of a life's dream, tireless effort, introspection and focus. Her songs slide effortlessly from soft folk to soaring roots rock choruses, while retaining the pop sensibilities that have created some of radio's biggest stars. ... more
