Joshua Kadison Jessie Lyrics

Last updated: 09/22/2014 04:28:51 PM

From a phone booth in Vegas, Jessie calls at 5 A.M.
to tell me how she's tired of all of them.
She says, "Baby, I've been thinking 'bout a trailer by the sea.
We could go to Mexico... you, the cat, and me.
We'll drink tequila and look for sea shells.
Now, doesn't that sound sweet?"
Oh, Jessie, you always do this every time I get back on my feet.

Jessie paint your pictures about how it's gonna be.
By now I should know better, your dreams are never free.
But tell me all about our little trailer by the sea;
Jessie you can always sell any dream to me.
Oh, Jessie, you can always sell any dream to me.


She asks me how the cat's been. I say, "Moses? he's just fine
but he used to think about you all the time.
We finally took your pictures down off the wall."
Oh, Jessie, how do you always seem to know just when to call?
She says, "Get your stuff together. Bring Moses and drive real fast."
And I listen to her promise and I swear to God this time it's gonna last.


Jessie paint your pictures about how it's gonna be.
By now I should know better, your dreams are never free.
But tell me all about our little trailer by the sea;
Jessie you can always sell any dream to me.


I'll love you in the sunshine, lay you down in the warm white sand.
And who knows, maybe this time things'll turn out just the way you planned.


Jessie paint your pictures about how it's gonna be.
By now I should know better, your dreams are never free.
But tell me all about our little trailer by the sea;
Jessie you can always sell any dream to me.
Oh, Jessie, you can always sell any dream to me.

What an amazing song! i was digging for this Lyrics for such a long time, the moment I got them I made sure that I perfect the song I always wanted to. It is my ringing tone and I adore the song with all of my heart. Joshua has always been my favorite artist of all times, my Brother Matome Albert got so inspired the moment he heard it playing during my incoming call and he asked me not to pick up the phone as he wanted to listen to those first adorable first lines of the song. Joshua Kadison you are the BEST!!!!!!!!!!

This song made my long distance relationship with Tony aflame irrespective. I was still studying at UCT and he just started working in JHB. I dedicated the song to us and even now after 20 years, the song is still special to us.

I wish everyone can listen to this song. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/28/13

When i 1st heard this song it was raining outside. Was all alone in ma bed thinking of that special someone when i just smilled. It is not because the song reminds me of something or someone. No! It is because the words used here belongs only to real men. I knew the song b4 i knew myself. Wow! What a song. Gotta meet this guy.

Growing up, I used to listen to this song alot. My Hubby dedicated this song for me. He said the moment he heard the song, he knew this song was meant for me !!!... Good work Joshua Kadison. You are one of my favourite singers of all time.

it was about us | Reviewer: Kathleen | 3/27/11

this song was so about michael and I. We were divorced about 3 years, and I called him. He told me after, I called there was a song about us. He passed away this year and I still play this song and remember us. Thank you Joshua.

i see | Reviewer: dylan | 12/1/10

how cute the story of the lyrics. I see that jessie is his mother who was gone when he was 15(Joshua Kadison). i can feel his loss and how he really missed his mom. i know how he felt to be left by somebody who's been so important to him and more that she is almost a half of his life. maybe by the time he wrote this song, he is still longing for his mother's presence.


Beautiful story | Reviewer: Natalie | 3/28/08

He is a pretty man and she is attractive woman. I didn't know it was about SJP when i listelned to it back then...in 90-s. I really like that song and the fact, that it tells the story about two people, trying to find themeselves after a failed relationship. And Sarah Jessica can't be so unsexy after all, if such a handsome men are in love with her..

my view | Reviewer: lara | 2/19/08

Joshua Kadison's' Jessie is about Sarah Jessica Parker (carrie in Sex and the city), Joshua and Sarah had a relationship but when they broke up Joshua wrote this song. I think it is a really beautiful song about the powerless position of Joshua who always will keep being attracted by Sarah.

this song is not complete with out... | Reviewer: Jenny | 3/20/07

if you never listen to an album yo may have missed out on the end to this song which is gorgia rain it tells all about the love of jessie and him and that some dreams are better from afar baby thats just how things are you have got to have both or you only half of any story not fair but then when is life fair get both then learn the truth.
my fave from him is still mamas arms if you want to cry and have to let out your emotions you have to hear it is about a mama dying and the boy growing up with out her in his life

find it find a real story teller he was the best at it
