    Last up on my newest EP, TOY is HENRIETTA. I wrote this tune for my mother in-law, Kathi. She has this cool doll named Henrietta - who she still has after 50 years. When I asked her what she wanted me to write this song about, she sent me lots of cool ideas - and one which really struck me - toys being bought for children by parents who don't have time for them. It made me sad, and it made me wonder - who really is more real, the toys or the parents? From my newest EP, TOY, where every track is made with a toy of some kind, here's HENRIETTA:

    Take naps, climb trees
    Make friends, have tea
    Tell me that you'll never have a friend like me

    Hold my hand
    Run, jump thru sand
    Dress me up and
    Take me everywhere you go

    Who is more real
    Them or me?
    Who is there
    to keep you company?
    They're talking in halves -
    can't you see?
    Who is more real
    Them or me?
    One half truth
    And one half lie -
    A barely living compromise
    Who is there to keep you company?
    Who is more real
    Them or me?

    Take naps, climb trees
    Sing me to sleep
    Tell me your secrets
    and I'll tell you mine

    Take walks, explore
    Learn what things are for
    What makes you happy?
    What makes you cry?
    Who you are in this life

    Who is more real
    Them or me?
    Who is there
    to keep you company?
    They're talking in halves -
    can't you see?
    Who is more real
    Them or me?
    One half truth
    And one half lie -
    A barely living compromise
    Who is there to keep you company?
    Who is more real
    Them or me?

    Who is more real
    Them or me?
    Who is there
    to keep you company?
    They're talking in halves -
    can't you see?
    Who is more real
    Them or me?
    A substitute to rectify
    Never being there in your life
    Who is there to keep you company?
    Who is more real them or me?
