Skeletons 03:27
Skeletons (Jesse Payne) I wish I could remember how to smile Like I used to, or so my loved ones have said I can see all the mist on the hilltops Shining, from the lights on 20th Street. I can feel I've already lost you Yeah I know it by the way you say hello Cause love's the touch, loves the slap across my face It's the graveyard, I've buried all my skeletons in We are tragic like our youth We are tragic like our youth We are tragic. won't you march my body, march my body march my body, march my body up Morris Ave. Love's the touch, love's the slap across my face It's the graveyard I've buried all my skeletons in We are tragic like our youth We are tragic like our youth We are tragic.

Thief Among Us (Jesse Payne) The parking lot is already empty looks like everybody's gone Thoughts, like bags, swirling in circles in the spot where everybody was. They've gone to the cemetery to share drinks with friends The wind whispers through the willows It's sneaking in. but there seems to be a thief among us swimming around. You're so uninvited, how the trees bend, how the trees bend You've got me, oh the things you say but there seems to be a thief among us swimming around. All the branches but one swing together All the branches but one. Everyday we get a little farther from the ones that we love. but there seems to be a thief among us swimming around.

Comfort There (Jesse Payne) Follow me across the street to your place I've found comfort there while you're away You can run until your bones turn towards home like a garden in the sun All we need for sure is home, home to cure While you're away You can run until your bones turn towards home like a garden in the sun Follow me across the street to your place.

Until The Roots Surface (Jesse Payne) Hand me downs, like tailbones blown speakers without a sound through headphones Auditorium claps, predictions last water that runs beneath the grass. I don't want to climb your ladder don't want to see London in June You can't say there's nothing better than sitting up drinking But you won't take pride in our disregard help us up though we failed you all Loose leaf, apologies of different times we used to know I don't want to where your sweater Barely together by a thread You can't say there's nothing better Than sitting up drinking with you Hand me downs, like tailbones blown speakers without a sound through headphones Auditorium claps, predictions last water that runs beneath the grass. your ladder won't recline you can't say there's nothing better than sitting up drinking.....

about

Hollywood, CA – Cultivator of rock Americana, singer-performer Jesse Payne has announced that he is wrapping up work on a new CD. The EP is scheduled for a Spring release and will offer a preview of even more audio goodies to come with a full-length effort set to hit the streets in Fall 2010.

Live performances are slated this fall to precede the release of the new music and booking for his 2009-10 tour is under way.

Payne has opened for Peter Walker, The Gabe Dixon Band, Tilly and The Wall, David Mead, World Leader Pretend, Dick Dale and a plethora of other artists. His music has been tapped for release on national CD compilations and has been reviewed in The Big Takeover magazine. Payne has also made television appearances.

Payne says one big reason for his musical motivation is its singular ability to unite people across time and keep those things we value most alive.

“The one vehicle humans have that allows us to transcend the elements of time is a melody,” he says. “Music attaches us to our memories and gives us the freedom to imagine.”

Payne’s songwriting is influenced by such things as his childhood, traveling the United States, great poetry, loved ones, cinematography, nature and self-exploration.
