about

“The best songs do two things, deftly revealing the unvarnished truth about both the songsmith and the listener. With ‘Love Has No Heart Of Its Own’, Mark Jewett has delivered a clutch of tunes that neatly and effortlessly accomplishes both. He renders them lovingly and openly, without a trace of artifice. You can hear who Mark is in every line, from the heartfelt to the humorous. All of his influences and interests are filtered through his unique and honest slant on life, love, longing and contentment. A warm and pleasurable packet of songs delivered with wry wit. Enjoy!” - Nolan Mendenhall - Producer, Work Ethic Productions

Four years ago, I didn’t even know I could write a song. Thanks to some great friends and mentors, I discovered that I could. It was a gift I never saw coming and it has hit me like ton of joyous bricks.

Special thanks to
… to my family (Deb, Scott & Lindsay) for putting up with my less-than-entertaining practice hours and my time away from home for things musical so many evenings.
… all involved in organizing and operating the “Above The Bridge” Songwriters’ Weekend in Curtis, MI, especially The Hummingbirds (Steve & Rachel) and Kelly & Bud Chamberlin for making it possible.
… Nolan, Roscoe, Jerome, Rod & Annie; for their great ideas and performances.

Very special thanks to Jill Jack and Nolan Mendenhall. Jill, for convincing me that I could do this and kicking my butt until I did. Nolan, for your support, for introducing me to your world and your amazing colleagues and for helping me make music I want to share.

That’s all… except, “Thank you, too. I hope you like it.” -

Mark

Track Name: Love Has No Heart Of Its Own
Love Has No Heart Of Its Own
by Mark Jewett BMI, (c) 2011

It recently occurred to me
With subtle irony
That Love has no heart of its own
Love’s a seed that must be sown
It’s a solid cornerstone
But Love is powerless alone

Love only grows
In places where it knows
It can steal a heart and have a home
And if your heart is open wide
Love will curl up inside, ‘cuz
Love has no heart of its own

For Love to live, it must reside
In a heart that can provide
A place to hang it’s hat and settle in
Love will light the fire there
And catch its victims unaware
And wait for the magic to begin

Love only grows
In places where it knows
It can steal a heart and have a home
And if your heart is open wide
Love will curl up inside, ‘cuz
Love has no heart of its own

The whole idea is strange to me
I ask myself, “How can it be
Love’s at the heart of this mystery?”
I don’t know…

As long as there’s a heart to give
A hideaway where Love can live
There’s no reason for alarm
Love has a master plan
And Love will do all that it can
To keep all our loving hearts from harm

Love only grows
In places where it knows
It can steal a heart and have a home
And if your heart is open wide
Love will curl up inside, ‘cuz
Love has no heart of its own
Track Name: Daydreams
Daydreams
by Mark Jewett BMI, (c) 2011

I like to daydream … late at night
And dream of everything that’s goin’ right
‘Cuz in the daytime things happen way too fast
It’s hard to make a decent daydream last

You can dream anything when you dream at night
But when you daydream every dream can turn out right

I had a dream … that everything was real
Where Superman was really made of steel
And Lois Lane, she was pretty as can be
The funny thing, she was in love with me

You can dream anything when you dream at night
But when you daydream every dream can turn out right

I had a dream … that everything was cool
Where we were chillin’ by a swimmin’ pool
The sun was warm and the sky was blue
And in my dream, nobody loved me more than you

You can dream anything when you dream at night
But when you daydream every dream can turn out right
Dream, dream in color or black and white
I like to daydream at night
Track Name: Help Me Know
Help Me Know
by Mark Jewett BMI, (c) 2011

My conviction is strong as steel
And yet I don’t know how I feel
My allegiance is tried and true
And yet I don’t know what to do
My faith is deep, my love undying
So when I listen to my heart, why is it crying?

I could use a helping hand
To help me truly understand
To help me know what I must do
To close the distance between me and you

Now, my demeanor is sometimes cold
At least that’s what I’m sometimes told
But my intentions are well and good
Sometimes they’re just misunderstood
But I believe in good and I’ll go on believing
So when I listen to my heart, why is it grieving?

Love is strong, but hearts can be broken
By careless words or words unspoken
Some people seem to forgive but not forget
And others live forever with regret
So if you don’t mind, and it’s all right with you
I’d like to have the chance to do what I must do.

But I could use a helping hand
To help me truly understand
To help me know what I must do
To close the distance between me and you
Track Name: Just One Clue
Just One Clue
by Mark Jewett BMI, © 2011

Tell me Honey, what is on your mind?
Tell me Honey, what is on your mind?
I know there’s somethin’ goin’ on there…
And I’m afraid what I might find

Tell me Sugar, did I do something wrong?
Tell me Sugar, did I do something wrong?
‘Cuz I would like to make it up to you
If it doesn’t take too long

Come on Darlin’, won’t you tell me what to do?
Come on now Darlin’, can’t you tell me what to do?
‘Cuz I cannot read your mind now
As much as you would like me to

So what’cha say now Honey, how about a clue?
Say now Sugar… won’t you give me just one clue?
‘Cuz if you help me just a little
I might know just what to do
