Was it something I said?
I don't get a ton of plays either, Jill.
Matter of fact, I frankly stopped looking, months ago.
Would you like help making records?
Jillianne, I would be happy to help you make records.
You're terribly prolific, you turn stuff out, pretty fast. And that's me saying that...
but, perhaps it gets a chore doing it by yourself,
so, Jill, I will help you, if you like.
Did it hurt your feelings, that my song wasn't about you?
Jill, would you like me to write a song FOR you?
Well, I imagine I could, if I knew you a bit better,
I really don't know you that well, Sweetheart,
so I presently would really not quite know what to write,
write to me, if you will,
Just, to talk,
you may not think anyone cares,
but I do care!
I sense you are a jaded soul, and you perhaps do not believe that.
But I do.
I care about everyone,
and you are a part of the IMP Family.
That's what we are here.
And I'm not kidding...
I decided long ago,
it's not about if I get any listens or not.
It's about that I do it, anyway.
So I do it, anyway.
I like what I do, till I write the next song,
and then that becomes the song I'm thinking about...
whatever, the joy is in the doing of the thing.
I would be happy to help you make records if it's all become drudgery.
I will, Jill, I wouldn't get on here, say this, and not do it.
Do you want a friend?
I will be your friend.
Now, I have reached out in the past,
and maybe your reaction is simply 'knee-jerk' as the term goes,
and you hadn't meant to even react in such a way.
I don't know what else to tell you,
if you wanted to find out, if anyone cares, yes, we care.
Write to me if you would like to write to me, Jillianne.
I understand all too well, being on the ready for the next person
to be mean, or hurtful, and I have my own back fur up, truly.
Perhaps, we can try to give all that stuff a rest,
and just, you know, talk...
unless you don't want to talk,
and you're going to come back and respond to that by being cool aloof and
even possibly mean, in which case,
I still suspect you're trapped in habitual behavior,
and you're wishing to God Almighty someone, anyone,
would call you out on it.
I'm trying to. Come out come out wherever you are, Jill.
