This project was a musical endeavor under Traitor Records by Autumn, which followed the life of a 1940s woman who was recording her life in song. The album was entitled The Jane Brooks Songbook: Volume I, but it was never released, despite the album reportedly being very close to completion.

Be silent, be still
Don’t make me chase you
I’ll warn you, I will
Just to embrace you
I’ll get my fill
So be silent, be still

Be hopeful, be brave
I only want you more
When you misbehave
I know I’ve said that before
It’s your touch I crave
So be silent, be still

You, I adore
Must you ignore
It doesn’t matter what you say anymore
This is our night
Why must we fight?
Don’t close the door

Be careful, my dear
If you’re not nice
I’ll give you reason to fear
But I’ll think twice
Don’t pretend you don’t hear
Just be silent, be still

You, I adore
Must you ignore
It doesn’t matter what you say anymore
This is our night
Why must we fight?
Don’t close the door

Now listen to me
I’d rather tie you up
Than let you go free
You must be kind, my dear
I think you’ll agree
These are the words you’ve sung to me
So there’s no hope you see
For still and silent I will never be
