I feel like there’s a hinge I have to take out And move it to the left and shake it all about I’m pinned somewhere it’s hard to see You can blame it on my mom, you can blame it on my dad You can blame it on my family I keep waiting for that part in the movie Where everything’s ok and my problems Just go away Here I am again with my coffee And a list as long as my arm I can’t even remember what I came here for It seems so long and gone I keep waiting for that part in the movie Where everything’s ok and my problems Just go away Jesus and Buddha said there was no Special incantation for happiness But if I had a formula – I’d put it in a bottle And sell it for a tenner a box I keep waiting for that part in the movie Where everything’s ok and my problems Just go away ©Jen Charlton 2013

Trying not to obsess About every little detail And trying not to get upset About every time you let me down If you start your thinking That you've come so far Well think again – oh think again Don't you know that I've always loved you just the way you are And thinking about nothing And yet everything weighs on my mind Thinking I should think nice thoughts And yet all my thoughts seem so unkind If you start your thinking That you've come so far Well think again – oh think again Don't you know that I've always loved you just the way you are ©Jen Charlton 2009

about

This is the single 'Blame it on my family' - from the upcoming album 'Funny World'.

Jen Charlton – an itinerate Canadian – has teamed up with French producer Yves Galula to create a truly fresh crop of songs. The music speaks of 1960's - 70's New York and Montreal – with just the right mix of gloom and sunshine.
