(REPEAT REFRAIN) Written and Sung by: Joshua Kadison Copyright (c) 1993 by SBK Records her lead just another emotional nowhere? When should you give up on a romance? After listening to Joshua Kadison's "Jessie," you might be tempted to answer, "Never." As far as I know, this is Kadison's first time on the charts. I really like his sound, but I doubt the wisdom of the song's ideas on relationships. "Jessie" is the name of the girl that the guy in the song used to date. He recently got past the pain of their break-up. However, very early one morning Jessie calls from "Vegas." She asks him to grab his cat "Moses" and "drive real fast" to meet her. The three of them will head off to Mexico for a fantasy life. Instead of turning to common sense, the guy falls for her idea and wants to know more "about our little trailer by the sea." For, as he tells her: "Jessie, you can always sell any dream to me." The story reveals how emotionally vulnerable we can be in, relationships, even those we thought were over. With Jessie's new suggestion, the guy's vulnerability to wanting her back caves in and covers up any learning he might have gained from the past. But first he should evaluate whether any poten- tial for good still exists between them. Is following Answering a question like that cussing fantasy ideas over the phone is hardl way to make such a choice, nor is before you have the time to really through the thing to do. He also could considering his needs and dreams. Given the depth of his hurt, he would want more than a fling in Mexico. Certainly term happiness is not likely to be to impulsive whims. He needs to show more respect begins with a clear no to Jessie's i might invite her to come where he is. Then, logue about what happened in their past What changes will help create different if they do get back together? Whims and fantasies are ofter may be right to pursue them. Other times best to leave them within the imagination. If you are unsure about what will best overall well-being and happiness, ask you to the individuals who can help you see larger picture. Go slow. If a relationship has brought the past, don't expect everything to cha nge. cause of the latest whim. (Your comments are always address: Charlie Martin, RR 3, BoX port, Ind. 47635.)
