"Adventure is worthwhile in itself." - Amelia Earhart


The girl in the photograph
She’s runnin’, runnin’ away
But what is she running from?
Who can say?

It isn’t just for a place or time
The girl in the photograph
She’s leavin’ her troubles far behind
And who’s gonna stop the girl in the photograph
Who would love the girl in the photograph?
Rescue the girl, the girl in the photograph

The girl in the photograph
Doesn’t eat, doesn’t sleep, only thinks of more lies
She’s tryin’ to keep her secret locked inside
Why oh why? Why oh why?

The girl in the photograph
Her name is Jenny
It isn’t just any race for a place or time
Jenny’s leavin’ her troubles far behind!
And who’s gonna stop the girl in the photograph
Who would love the girl in the photograph?
Rescue the girl, the girl in the photograph

Jenny, Jenny, Jenny!
Oh little girl in the photograph-
Take my hand; you don’t have to run away anymore
Jenny, Jenny, Jenny!
Has anyone told you, you’re beautiful just the way you are?

Oh little girl in the photograph
We love the girl in the photograph
-for JEEP


The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this song after seeing a picture of my mother as a teen running a race. Around the same time she struggled with an eating disorder. Knowing the pain hidden in her face, not just from the race itself, but from trying to hide her disorder inspired me to tell the story of a girl trying to escape the psyche of her problems.
