„You're still shimmering and leading me on… Firefly that's what you are
Burning for me in my darkest hour
"Light breaks where no sun shines"
So shine for me tonight — firefly.“

—  Greta Gaines

"Firefly" on Greta Gaines (1999) http://www.allmusic.com/album/greta-gaines-mw0000068041; the phrase in quotes is a line from a poem of Dylan Thomas. · Full song at YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIEA4mjwRik&spfreload=10 · Live Performance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nbr63vyH-58
Kontext: I am waking from a dream,
I am choking on a scream,
You were trying to show me something.
But the dark is wide and long,
The gates are closed, the crowd's all gone,
You're still shimmering and leading me on… Firefly that's what you are
Burning for me in my darkest hour
"Light breaks where no sun shines"
So shine for me tonight — firefly.

„My parents wrote their own rules, so it didn’t seem odd to me to invent my life as I went along.“

—  Greta Gaines

As quoted in the "Greta Gaines" profile page at Artist Direct http://www.artistdirect.com/artist/bio/greta-gaines/702133
Kontext: My parents wrote their own rules, so it didn’t seem odd to me to invent my life as I went along. …  I picked up a guitar and started writing songs late, when I was 22, but quickly became devoted to the craft of song writing, relieved that I had found my inner calling.

„Not only is pot way cooler than alcohol, it’s also non-toxic.“

"Why Are No Women Celebrity Stoners Willing to Come Out of the Greenhouse?" (16 August 2012) http://www.alternet.org/drugs/why-are-no-women-celebrity-stoners-willing-come-out-greenhouse
Kontext: Not only is pot way cooler than alcohol, it’s also non-toxic. Dylan Thomas could not have smoked himself to death.

„When I was younger I was always looking for someone’s approval.“

—  Greta Gaines

On her album Lighthouse & The Impossible Love (2013), as quoted at Michelle Roche Media Relations http://michelleroche.com/artists/greta-gaines/
Kontext: When I was younger I was always looking for someone’s approval. Then I had kids and what I needed from music totally changed. Motherhood just kind of sliced away all self-defeating behavior. The lesson I learned from the experience of releasing Whiskey Thoughts was that if I make another album, it has to be for me. It has to be much more personal and honest, unique and raw, and that is what I hope that we have done here. After 20 years playing and touring, 5 studio albums and one live album I finally feel that I have found my sound. Like it or leave it the sound on this album is mine and mine alone.

„I wake to "magnolias sweet and fresh",
Lines of poetry on my breath“

—  Greta Gaines

"Firefly" on Greta Gaines (1999); the phrase in quotes is one earlier found in "Strange Fruit" (1937) by Abel Meeropol, famously sung by Billie Holiday.
Kontext: I wake to "magnolias sweet and fresh",
Lines of poetry on my breath,
You were here but you have stolen away.
My inspiration is an evening star,
So come to me wherever you are,
I will wait for you tonight alone in the dark…
