About This Song


'Between A Rock And A Hard Place' I wrote a few years ago when I was rescued from a very difficult time when I was rather unhappy following my retirement from 18 years of nursing. Now that it has been brilliantly composed, played and recorded by Tilly Aldaine I would like to dedicate it to my rescuer Rob Bray. Of course I realise now that what I had perceived as an ending was indeed a new beginning and my songwriting is as important a part of my life as nursing. It and the wonderful people I have met because of it have saved me time and time again.

Between A Rock And A...

Written by MavisEllen Jackson

I was between a rock and a hard place
Between the devil and the deep blue sea,
You entered in, into my space
And you unlocked the prison that was me.

I was in such a dark place
Then you came along,
You helped me find my own space
And my world became a song.
I’ve been in a desert arid and dry
But my voice has never left me alone
And I’ve still had to have a try
Picked at words like a dog with a bone.

My voice has a message
There are songs I must sing,
My glass is filling up
I don’t know when to say when,
My voice has a message
My thoughts are on the wing,
Brimming over is my cup
For my voice is my pen....

I was between a rock and a hard place
Between the devil and the deep blue sea,
You entered in, into my space
And you unlocked the prison that was me.

I do know that clichés might be frowned on
But when you’re trapped inside a hole
At a time when you’ve been downed on
To climb back out again’s the only goal.

My voice has a message
There are songs I must sing,
My glass is filling up
I don’t know when to say when,
My voice has a message
My thoughts are on the wing,
Brimming over is my cup
For my voice is my pen...

I was between a rock and a hard place
Between the devil and the deep blue sea,
You entered in, into my space
And you unlocked the prison, you unlocked the prison that was

Between a rock and a hard place
Between the devil and the deep blue sea, yes I was,
You entered in, into my space
And you unlocked the prison, the prison that was me
Ah the prison that was me.
