Inside Scoop: Janis began making more aggressive decisions in the studio, thanks to Brooks' and arranger Ron Frangipane's generousity in teaching her about recording and arranging. In fact, she threw a member of her management team out of the studio during the recording of "At Seventeen" because they kept saying "You're blowing a hit! Would you like to learn to sing? Would you like to sing my song? Would you like to learn to love me best of all Anyone can learn the words and the melody's so plain This is my song to bring you back again.
I'll teach you how to sing and dance with a song and dance routine, and when the party's over, you can fall in love with me. Would you like to learn to tango?
Do you dance the light fandango? I'll teach you how before we're done Anyone can make it two Any two can turn to one and the melody's lost before the song's begun. We sound so good together and so poorly sung alone Your harmony's an open breeze into my sheltered home. I can teach you how to sing and dance with a song and dance routine, and when the party's over, you can fall in love with me.

I learned the truth at seventeen That love was meant for beauty queens and high school girls with clear skinned smiles who married young and then retired The valentines I never knew The Friday night charades of youth were spent on one more beautiful At seventeen I learned the truth. Dance And Chant - Sam-Jam - Dance And Chant those of us with ravaged faces lacking in the social graces desperately remained at home inventing lovers on the phone who called to say - come dance with me and murmured vague obscenities It isn't all it seems at seventeen.
A brown eyed girl in hand me downs whose name I never could pronounce said - Pity please the ones who serve They only get what they deserve The rich relationed hometown queen marries into what she needs with a guarantee of company Watercolors - Janis Ian - Between The Lines haven for the elderly.
Remember those who win the game lose the love they sought to gain in debentures of quality and dubious integrity Their small-town eyes will gape at you in dull surprise when payment due exceeds accounts received at seventeen.
To those of us who knew the pain of valentines that never came and those whose names were never called when choosing sides for basketball It was long ago and far away The world was younger than today when dreams were all they gave for free to ugly duckling girls like me.
We all play the game, and when we dare we cheat ourselves at solitaire Inventing lovers on the phone Repenting other lives unknown that call and say - Hole - Barry Yoko - My Pink Dawn With Marnie dance with me and murmur vague obscenities at ugly girls like me, at seventeen.
I'm leaving by night, I'm leaving alone Leaving it lie, when you waken I'll be gone I would not beg for me as I would not beg for you though I'd like to be the one to see you through. Every step you have take Watercolors - Janis Ian - Between The Lines with the tide You're torn up and shaken with changing your mind You haven't got the grace to say you'll finally decide and you haven't got the strength to stay to fight.
Those people who surround you only want to see you weak enough to crawl They'll lie for you, decide for you and buy up all your rights and all your wrongs And they'll try to stop your singing in the middle of your song for they do not want you free and they will not make you strong but only drag you down in the hole they're coming from.
They say you are foolish for wanting the sun They call you selfish for learning to run They'll tell you that the darkness is a blessing in disguise You never have to notice if you're sighted or you're blind and they'll do their best to keep you from the light.
You're more than beginning, you're learning to fly Feels like you're falling, but it passes in time and I hate to see a friend go down in flames without a song so I'm waiting by the doorway - I will not linger long. I'm leaving by night, I'm leaving Watercolors - Janis Ian - Between The Lines Leaving you lie. When you waken I'll be gone I would not beg for me as I will not beg for you but I'd like to be the one to see you through.
Bright lights and promises, a pocket full of dreams That's what they pay me to be Gold lame and diamonds - I am a hometown queen Honey, would you sing it just for me? When I was good Everywhere I hear a ringing in my ears Drummer, let the music play Small-town blues, make it loud, make it do Listen to the music sway.
Bar rails and cocktails - have you got a light? That's all it pays to keep in sight Overused and much abused promises of delight Honey, would you care to spend the night? Take a little time - some memories and wine Loosen up the sucker by the bar And if he wants to hold you, if he wants to know you Honey, that's what you're here for. Bright lights and promises, that's all it's for Leave and enter by the service door Now I'm gold lame and diamonds, even if my gold is worn Honey, who could ask for more?
The days are okay I watch the TV in the afternoons If I get lonely, the sound of other voices, other rooms are near to me I'm not afraid. Do you care? Are you there? And in the winter, extra blankets for the cold Fix the heater, getting old I am wiser now, you know and still as big a fool concerning you.
I met your friend She's very nice, what can I say? It was an accident I never dreamed we'd meet again this way You're looking well I'm Chapter 3 - Victor Smolski - The Heretic / Majesty & Passion afraid. You have a lovely home Just like a picture. And in the winter Extra blankets for the cold Fix the heater, getting old You are with her now, I know I'll live alone forever Not together now.
I remember photographs Watercolors of the past He turned and said - You ask much of me Then, when we'd Watercolors - Janis Ian - Between The Lines our peace, we lay between Ein Sprechendes Wesen Kommt Näher - Walter Moers - Ensel Und Krete sheets He turned and said - I set you free.
Go on, be a hero, be a photograph Make your own myths Christ, I hope they last longer than mine Wider than the sky we measure time by Go on, be a hero, I set you free Your stagehand lovers have conquered me They'll send you carnations, while smiling faces look on and Until Then - The SunKings - Adios Go on, go on, go 'way from me.
I said - Do you wish me dead? Lip service to Watercolors - Janis Ian - Between The Lines you've read Articles on how to bed a bird in flight You called it love - I called it greed You say - You take what you want I say - You get what you need.
Go on, be a hero, be a man Make your own destiny if you can Go find a fence, locate a shell and hide yourself Go on, go to hell, go away from me El Rey - Luis Miguel - El Concierto need no charity. He said - Come unto me I am beauty I am the light Come unto me Hold the darkness and stay the night for I am wonder, I am the heart's delight Tomorrow we'll fight.
Come on come on, come Watercolors - Janis Ian - Between The Lines to me Come be my fantasy We'll talk it over again sometime I'll send you some flowers to change your mind, but for tonight, turn out the light Hold me - Come on, come on and set me free Lend me your charity.
In books and magazines of how to be and what to see while you are being Before and after photographs teach how to pass from reaching to believing We live beyond our means on other peoples' dreams and that's succeeding Between the lines of photographs, I've seen the past It isn't pleasing. So strike another match We'll have another cup of wine and dance until the evening's dead of too much song and time There's never much to talk about, or read between the lines of what we dream about when we're apart snd no one's looking Tanya Louise - Lovely Day to say "You're mine".
It was a good year then. It was a good year then We all remember the time you threw the looking glass and seemed a fool, or very clever Don't spoil it all. I can't recall a time when you were stuck without an answer We'll live a quiet peaceful time between the lines and go together. And I'm striking up the band to play our last hurrah We'll dance until we've killed another evening off Don't think of anyone but me Ann Stephens With Orchestra Conducted By Clifford Greenwood - Buckingham Palace / Christopher Robin have no lovers on the side Tonight is all we ever dreamed about For once, let's get it right We'll go down flying in the end Throw another bottle in between the lines We'll go down like a ship of state Let's be gracious now, between the lines.
I haven't been loved by a man in quite a while You know it ain't easy making me smile Friends have their lovers Men on a string There must be something terribly wrong with me Sometimes I feel like I haven't learned anything.
How do you do? Would you like to be friends? No, I just want a bed for the night Someone to tell me they care You can fake it, that's all right In the morning I won't be here. It's a sacrificial altar and I'm laying down my head and I'm telling you up front -- I haven't much to give.
Do you want to be friends? Yes, that might be very nice Maybe we'll fall in love Every body has its price Mine is yours for free if you'll be in love with me.
I haven't been loved by a man in quite a while You know it ain't easy making me smile Friends have their lovers Men on a string There must be something terribly wrong with me I hear your voice in every corridor See your face in every picture frame I feel your eyes in every starry sky Lover, am I coming home Watercolors - Janis Ian - Between The Lines . Now am I humble, who once was proud Now am I silent, who once was loud Now am I waiting for the sound of your saying -- Lover, am I Watercolors - Janis Ian - Between The Lines home again.
When you're gone, the sun don't shine Watercolors - Janis Ian - Between The Lines a light, light a light for me Bring me back home again. And how we loved, 'til the years were days How we laughed all our tears away and now the time begins to fade Lover, am i coming home again. There's a wisdom in the teachings of the old familiar songs, and a sorrow in repeating all the old familiar wrongs, and a lesson to be learned, though I've known all along Lover, am I coming home again.
Light a light, light a light for me Light a light, light a light for me Light a light, light a light for me Bring me back home again Bring me back home again. I don't want to Watercolors - Janis Ian - Between The Lines the milk train any more I'll go to bed at nine, and waken with the dawn and lunch at half past noon Dinner prompt at five The comfort of a few old friends long past their prime.
And when the guests have done I'll tidy up the room I'll turn the covers down and gazing at the moon will pray to go quite mad and live in long ago when you and I were one, so very long ago. And when I have no dreams to give you any more, I'll light a blazing fire and wait within the door, and throw my life away "I wonder why? Lay down and slumber Mama's boy is torn asunder All the fields have gone grey All the leaves are gone brown Let Sloan - The Double Cross Stash Bonus Sampler tell you a story Lay down, I know you're weary While the star's in the sky While the moon's on the rise.
Lay down and don't you wake 'til morning Close your eyes and helpless through the night Lay down and dream of love and glory This is a lover's lullaby. Once was a magician Fair he was, and handsome and he brought to the table all the fool's gold and wine He promised us three favors Said he was the Savior We drank all his glory and we borrowed all his time.
Lay down and don't you wake 'til morning Close your eyes and helpless through the night Lay down and dream of love and glory This is a lover's lulla Softly now, close your eyes Lightly will you fade The moon was made for wakeful boys to keep the night away. Self-Deception - De/Vision - Live (Unplugged) (File) down and don't wake 'til morning Close your eyes all through the night Lay down and dream of your glory This is a lullabye.
Lay down and don't wake 'til morning Close your eyes all through the night Lay down and dream of your glory This is a lullabye This is a lullabye.

The 5 day class covers everything from the origins of artists to physicalization, songwriting for profit and not so much, performance, the need to be brave, how to survive as an artist in the modern world, and why bother. Watercolors - Janis Ian - Between The Lines are illustrated with songs and playing as she takes us on a journey that begins with the first caveman to tell a story and continues through the myth of the artist as "crazy", the need for silence, and why she believes "art saves".
