By the time I got your letter I had lost my mind
I was trippin'
"When you gettin' better?"
It's a jagged line
Nothin' lasts forever when you travel time
I've been sippin' that cool aid of the cosmos

'Cause The Voyagers in every boy and girl
If you wanna get to heaven get out of this world
The Voyagers in every boy and girl

When it finally hit me I did not cry
'cause I was at the 7/11 flippin' through The New York Times
I saw it printed in black and white- The Voyager goes up in smoke

The Voyagers in every boy and girl
if you wanna get to heaven get out of this world
You're the Voyager
You're the Voyager

You scared me straight
right into your arms
ah-oh
ah-oh-oh
ah-oh
ah-oh-oh
ah-oh

The Voyagers in every boy and girl
If you wanna get to heaven get out of this world
you're The Voyager
you're The Voyager
Hey
you're The Voyager
you're The Voyager
I'm the Voyager

I think, collectively, this is bad advice B_E.

Another groove-killing tune. {#Naughty}
I like the atmosphere that JL is making. I try not to attach to closely to the lyrics. They are vague enough to be serene. I could see myself liking this for awhile and then getting REAL sick of it quickly. That's kinda what happens to me if I like a tune right from the get go. We'll see.
Worse than First Aid Kit

Agreed! And for me right now, it's a 4 rating song. I can see, being in the mood, giving an 8. I'll average that to a 6, which is what the other 550 ratings average to - which is fitting.

cool tune, excellent voice ... IMHO :)

I know what you mean, when this song started I thought 'what a sweet voice'

Are you feeling okay? Can I get you a glass of water or something?
Fresh new voice.
Soaring melody.
For a second I thought this was Jerry Lewis, I think he sang better.{#Drunk}
I feel that this song has been played more than 3 times a month...

There's no justice in voting. This song is beautiful. At least an 8.

Heh-heh.  Nice : )
I love this song!
Have to admit, I'm mildly obsessed with this song. It's not her best work, it's a little corny, but there's something about it.
Aww C'mon! At least 7.5...
Bon Voyage!!! 
Trite. 
"If you wanna get to heaven get out of this world"

You've got that right, missy! {#Sunny}

My thoughts exactly {#Music}
So I'm having a pleasant chat with Jenny down at the pub. I pop over to the bar to grab another round and when I come back, Jenny's gone, and so is my jacket!!

Agreed.  This track doesn't do much for me either.  Maybe the rest of the album is better?

Seconded

Someone is going the other way.

That jacket takes four AAA batteries in order to maintain that glow.  I had one just like it, but it seems to look better on Ms. Lewis.  
Hey, I, for one, enjoy this "If you want to go to heaven Boys'n Guuurls, you gotta leave this wuuurld".
Neato.
Play it again Bill !

My rating just plummeted to 1. Sorry, Jenny

edit:  now an instant PSD before the singing starts.  I hope.

New releases will often get more plays for a few weeks.  Good song, at any rate.
Good stuff.

I'm starting to like this song a lot, interesting interview with her in the NYT: 
https://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/27/magazine/the-jenny-lewis-experience.html?_r=2
The album gets better with each listen: https://www.npr.org/2014/07/20/331347295/first-listen-jenny-lewis-the-voyager
been waiting a long time for a new one from her!
I like the lyrics
This song is good for the external auditory meatus...
First take on this one is a 6. Need to hear it a few more times to see which direction it will go.
