IN TECHNICOLOR, PART I Get a job, pay the rent • Wash,
rinse, repeat, do it again • We all live in a black and white world
• But let's face it, while time's wasting • We're all here with the
same motivation • Tryin’ to find that someone who sees your
worth • Technicolor • Waiting for that • Technicolor • Searching
for that • Technicolor • Waiting for that • Technicolor • When I
find her, game over • My future uncovered • The good, the bad,
the in-between • Perfect insanity, oh • She'll hate me when I
love her • And we'll fight like this forever • But she's a dream
and she's mine • A spectrum of beauty and light • Technicolor •
All I see is • Technicolor • She's loving me • Technicolor • Now I
see in • Technicolor

BACK TOGETHER Lipstick on my cigarette • How you used to hog the bed • The little shit that I can't forget • I
wonder where you are • Still got your apartment key • Voicemails that I can't delete • Man, I miss how it used to be,
I wonder where you are • I reminisce with the stars tonight • And think of how we knew them all by name • But they
don't shine half as bright • Ever since you walked away, oh • If we get back together • It'll be like when I met ya •
Even better, girl, I bet ya, baby • Let's get back together • Girl, I swear you are the reason • Love is something worth

Troubadour • Late night meals after four • Stumbling through my front door, it just don't feel the same • Can't go to
our lunch spot or grab joe from the coffee shop • Looking down at my phone a lot, but I don't see your name • I
reminisce with the stars tonight • And think of how we knew them all by name • But they don't shine half as bright

YOUNG LOVE We’ve been together a minute • Seen couples come and go • When people ask how we did it •
I flash a picture of you • ‘Cause lookin’ at you, it still feels like the day I met you • Lookin’ at you, I’m still weak

if we’re older than we’re acting lately • Young love is all that we’ll ever be • So hit the lights, crack the wine,
baby lock the door • Slippin’ out of our clothes, throw 'em on the floor • Dirty dancin’ to our song on the radio
• Young love, (hey!) is all that we’ll ever be • You’ve always been something different • A cut above the rest •
My number one with a bullet • You hit me right in the chest • ‘Cause lookin’ at you, it still feels like the day I

over (hey) • Forever young we will be • Young love • Young love (oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh) • Young
love, girl I’m still drooling like a baby • Young love, it feels like I’m seventeen • So what if we’re older than

CHECKMATE How will you feel when the king has gotta lie down? • Will you finally see that is something that couldn’t
work out? • You thought that you’d be ready, but I knew that you always had your doubts • I just wanted to be the one to save
you, the one that knew how • But this all would have an ending that was so clear to see • ‘Cause you couldn’t wrap your head
around the jealousy • That's why I’m calling checkmate (checkmate) • I’m calling checkmate on you, baby • Oh, I’m calling

up a wall around the castle that I just can’t climb around • I can hear you on the other side of it, screaming • But you’re too
afraid to face the demons • So you let your heart just take the beating • And I’m the one who pays for it, so I gotta dip • I’m

TIE THE KNOT Well, it’s about that time when all our friends around us • One by one they’re starting their own lives
• And I can see it in your eyes you want some answers • Wondering when it’s gonna be our time • Now, I ain’t never been

for me • Come on, girl, let’s tie the knot • They say the grass is always greener, temptation is a killer • Well, girl, that’s all
lies • ‘Cause when we’re standing in the mirror • There’s really nothing clearer than you and I • I, I know you • You’ve been
waiting to be taken • I, I know you • You’ve been waiting so patiently • I'm ready, you're ready, we're ready, been ready •

THE OTHER GUY The selfish part of me needs for you to stay • ‘Cause, girl, you keep a smile stretched across my face • And
I would give anything now • But you would lose everything now • The way your lips move when you say my name • The smell
of your hair on my pillowcase • And I would give anything now • But you would lose everything now • If I had it my way, I’d
never let you walk out the door • But my heart is heavy with something that I just can’t ignore • Girl, I’m sitting here wondering
what it is that we’ve done • Baby, who am I, to be that other guy? • ‘Cause I’ve seen tables turned, a world of hurt, I never
wanna feel twice • I know what it’s like from the other side • So, baby, who am I to be that other guy? This could be a home,
girl, our special place • Something much more than your great escape • Girl, I would give anything now • If you didn’t have
everything now • It doesn’t help to hear that you feel the same • You tell me that your love for me will never change • Unless
you change everything now • It doesn’t mean anything now • If it’s him that you’ve chosen then we need to start closing the

An artist is only as good as his or her team around them. For me, to make this album, there were a number of people involved
who were instrumental in seeing my vision to the finish line.

First and foremost, I want to thank my music manager and record label partner, Sherry Kondor, for sticking with me through
all the obstacles and always pushing me to be the very best I can be. Your leadership not only inspired me, but the rest of
the team as well and I know that this record is as much your "baby" as it is mine. I would never have gotten this far without
you. The management team -Katie Page, Sophie Lee and Chelsea Lindsay for handling all of the day-to-day operations and
never letting anything slip through the cracks. Chris Rossi, Megan Trevino and the team at Core PR- you guys are relentless
go-getters. Nobody would ever know this album existed if it weren't for your hard work. My legal team- Ken Hertz, Rachel
Rosoff and Jamie Young for making sure my ass was covered and always pushing to get me the best deal. Marty Diamond, my
music agent, for putting together all of the tours for my fans, thank you. Gary Fishkin, Rebecca Fishkin and Robin Haar- thank
you for all of your financial advice over the years. I appreciate you not letting me go broke! HaHa! Gabby Oglesby, Megan
Coyne, and Shelli Martineau at Affiniti, thank you. Tom Smith, Bryan Mead, Tim Reid, Michael Plen, Jenn Hovick, Nathan
Sheppard and the entire team at INgrooves- thank you for your faith in me as an artist and allowing me to make the record
I was born to make. To my whole family- you guys have always been behind me no matter what. You're there for the highs, the
lows, and everything in between. Mom, you gave up a lot in your life in order for me to live out my dream and I will forever
remember that. Thank you for giving me the courage at a very young age to believe that I was good at this. And Katie - when
we first met, this album was just being conceived and you stuck by me through the whole process, including the late nights
in the studio and the constant traveling. I'm no prince, but you sure do make me feel like one. I love you. Lastly, and mostly,
to all of my dedicated fans who have supported me – some for over a decade - thank you for bringing me so much joy every
day. Making you happy is truly what makes me happy. I'll continue to make music for all of you as long as you'll let me.
Much Love, Jess
