about

Lillie Mae led a sequestered childhood touring in a motorhome with her musician parents, constricted by religious boundaries. In her adolescence she busked from RV parks to the Rio Grande, swept through Nashville clubs, and achieved Top 40 country status in her sibling group Jypsi, but on Other Girls, a new side of herself emerges with more to say than ever before.


She embraces personal triumphs on “I Came For The Band (For Show),” breathes new perspective into “Terlingual Girl,” a song she wrote as a 19-year-old in the South-Texan desert, and professes brave truths as heard in “You’ve Got Other Girls for That.” After a vagabond past, crossing paths with hundreds of musicians, she limits the cast of Other Girls to just her brother, sister, and a few trusted collaborators.

Track Name: You've Got Other Girls For That
I ain't your baby even though I thought I'd be
I ain't your only, maybe the only one who thinks that's so
I ain't your first choice, maybe once upon a time
When I was living with delusions in mind

No, you've got other girls for that, no I'm just here to play
And it ain't like you babe to know me well
You've got other girls for that, no I'm just here to play
And it ain't like you babe to know me well

Well I ain't so bad huh
Maybe even a prize that you could show off every time while walkin' by
Where am I heading?
Who is this by my side?

You've got other girls for that, no I'm just here to play
And it ain't like you babe to know me well
You've got other girls for that, I'm just here to play
And it ain't like you babe to know me well

You've got other girls for that, I'm just here to play
And it ain't like you babe to know me well
My reality is spoiled, purity expired
And it ain't like you'd even rather know
And it ain't like you're even on a roll
And it ain't like you'd even let me go
Track Name: Crisp & Cold
In your eyes rendezvous is right
In a bind, wonder can be fine
Green says go
The moon dies, the sun is on the rise
Orange and bright and night is laid to rest

Out of sight and out of mind as well
Here the same how badly could you tell?
You said no!
But I don't hear and love is all I feel
What is love? And why can't it be real?

Don't you think it's time?
Can't you tell it heals?
Read the signs, much could be revealed
Crisp and cold
Crisp and cold as a lie
And don't be scared, be more!
Track Name: I Came for the Band (For Show)
I didn't come to take you home
I didn't come to be alone
I didn't cum today at all,
I came here for the show!
I didn't come to make the scene
I didn't come here for a ride
I didn't come to change my mind,
Or come here to try

And it's too late to smile
You've already shown me you

I didn't come to watch the clock
I didn't come so you could talk,
I didn't come so you could see,
I came here for me
I didn't come here for a while
I didn't come to burn some leaves
I didn't come here not to dance
I came for the band

And it's too late to smile
You've already shown me you
Track Name: Whole Blue Heart
Whole blue heart
Heart that so loves, but so lost
Was I dreamin' you? And it is like you said
Am I holding you and lovin' him instead?
Whole blue heart

Oh, you been here the whole time
Was it cold out there and it is warm inside?
There's a place for you where you can reside
Whole blue heart
Whole blue heart

Whole blue heart
Oh, you are nice and cold
You weren't fakin' it
Oh, it is real inside
You aren't makin' his anymore than mine
Whole blue heart

Why don't you stay for life?!
Were you welcomed in?
Or rather you just came
I remember when I didn't know your name
Whole blue heart
Whole blue heart
Track Name: How?
How, how, how, how, how
Do you do it, dear?
How, how, how, how, how
Am I unclear?!

Because when you rolled me in your arms
I thought I'd never let you go but something's changed

How, how, how, how, how
Do you not want more?
How, how, how, how, how
Are you so sure?!

Because when you'd hold me in your arms
I thought I'd never wanna go but some things change
And when you showed me to your arms
I thought that's all I'll ever know but something's changed

Ahhhhhh

Because when you hold me in your arms
I thought I'd never let you go but something's changed
And when you showed me to your arms
I thought that's all I'll ever know but some things change
And when you'd fold me in your arms
I thought that's all I'll ever know but something's changed

How, how, how, how, how
Do you do, dear?!
Track Name: A Golden Year
A golden year comes to an end
And better than I would expect
You welcomed me and us into your home,
I'm grateful for the kindness you've shown
La la la la la la la la la la

Down by the fire in the depths of the night
Burns a light so happy and bright
So carry your weight and some more around here
And don't forget to breathe in the air
La la la la la la la la la la

A silver moon comes to a close
Full again so shiny and bold
I swear I see a halo that glows above your crown
And I too will follow
La la la la la la la la la la

So take the Rhodes or wherever they lead
And find your way to a happier being

La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la
Track Name: At Least Three in This Room
How many lanes are either or?
How many dames do you leave wantin' more?
Cause I know of at least three in this room

How many flames will leave you lit?
How many names will you learn and forget?
Cause I know of at least three in this room

Ooooh, ooooh, ooooh

How many hearts do you rule from your throne?
How many more did you leave all alone?
Cause I know of at least three in this room

How many ways out have you conceived?
How many eyes wait on me to leave?
Cause I know of at least three in this room

No, you can't blame us
You're always thinking of others!

How many miles would you drive for a friend?
How many times you say you've none of them!
Cause I know of at least three in this room
Cause I know of at least three in this room

Ooooh, ooooh, ooooh
Ooooh, ooooh, ooooh
Ooooh, ooooh, ooooh
Track Name: Some Gamble
Good mornin'
The sun forgot to sink down low
Turn over
I'm tryin' but it just won't go
If it would I'm sure that I'd be on my way
But I been prayin' hard for a change
Ooooh

Some gamble
There's no ahead when you done wrong
Keep goin'
That's all I've heard now for so long
And it's meant more than ever to just have a friend
But winter will be over when we meet again
Ooooh

Good evenin'
I hear it all, what's goin' on
Dogs barkin'
I know they've waited far too long
Cause they need room to walk outside and run and play
And I needed you to stay
Ooooh
Track Name: Didn't I
Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I
Oh didn't I know, oh no
You would drive me wild
Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I
Oh didn't I know, oh no
Cause I've been here before
But what way is that to treat a friend
Oh, you've been a friend
And what way is that to treat a friend
Oh, you've been a friend

Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I
Oh didn't I know, oh no
I could be so cruel
Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I
Oh didn't I know, oh no
They'd never be you

And what way is that to for me to mend
Oh, it never mends
And what way is that to for me to mend
Oh, it never mends

Oooooooh

Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I
Oh didn't I know, oh no
I'd always be yours
Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I
Oh didn't I know, oh no
You'd never be mine

And what way is that to play pretend
Oh we play pretend
And what way is that to treat a friend
Oh, you've been a friend

Oooooooh
Track Name: Terlingua Girl
Your eyes try to tell me that you've been around
Oh but all you say to me is you're right back in this town
I wonder why you're so afraid
I wonder what you're runnin' from
Cause you can't run out of this world, Terlingua girl

Face of a stranger
Eyes so familiar
Light as a feather
Life in a whirl
Terlingua girl

Come all the way from New Orleans
You say this place has got a hold
Oh but all that's holdin' on is a feel you won't let go
What is it that I don't see
Why is it so strong?
That keeps you comin' back for more, Terlingua girl

Face of a stranger
Eyes so familiar
Light as a feather
Life in a whirl
Terlingua girl

No love Dilly love Dilly love Dilly love
Love Dilly love Dilly love Dilly love
No love Dilly love Dilly love Dilly love
I do recall you letting go

Do without move without play without
Lose without with without be without
Talk without walk without wait without
Plan without dance without paint without
Learn without weigh without laugh without
Strive without see without would without
Rest without flow without scheme without
Go without lead without give without
Live without cry without dream without
Find without seek without hide without
Have without you without me without why without

Make without miss without sing without
Stare without fly without fall without
Lay without dine without prance without
Grow without drive without be without
Know without doubt without shine without
Eat without sew without try without
Wade without rush without cross without
In without out without one without
Hope without stand without lie without
Ache without run without grieve without
Sing without shout without love without
Care without dare without take without
Smile without win without freeze without
Rest without worst without break without
One without rave without bliss without
Sound without am without dream without
Work without bless without rage without
Please without praise without taunt without

No love Dilly love Dilly love Dilly love
No love Dilly love Dilly love Dilly love
Love Dilly love Dilly love Dilly love
No love Dilly love Dilly love Dilly love
I do recall you letting go
I do recall your everything
