"I Magi Nation" Let me take you on a trip inside your mind Where I can show you everything you are I Magi Nation where we’ll face our temptation I Magi Nation yeah we’ll dance inside creation I Magi Nation evoke the world within your heart Be very careful that you don’t get lost inside Just take exactly what you need and then move on I Magi Nation can you feel the sensation I Magi Nation it’s a dance of creation I Magi Nation evoke the world within your heart Well It’s a gift that lives inside us all a special place of art inside the minds’ eye I Magi Nation the hidden salvation I Magi Nation the dance of celebration I Magi Nation evoke the world within your heart

The Hunger 03:44
“The Hunger” When I was a little boy I would dream that I could fly now my years they’re all numbered from one to forty-five All my hopes they now ride on the wind and against the tide with all my strengths I still wonder If I’ll ever find my stride What keeps me going and why do I even try and then I remember the hunger deep inside All my heroes they’re forgotten they are gone and dead inside all my memories gather round her she’s my love and she’s my pride What keeps me going and why do I even try and then I remember the hunger deep inside When I was a little boy I would dream that I could fly now my days they’re all numbered from one to forty-five

Melting Down 07:29
“Melting Down” I can barely breathe now - the air is getting thin I no longer know how – my mind is closing in I’m melting down as the world keeps spinning round things have gone too far now - waking up I see life inside a bug jar - collapsing down on me I’m melting down as the world keeps spinning round but I can still be found in the light of your eyes As all my memories are erased from my mind they will still live on here within a song and you know I loved every moment I spent with you I’d do it all again, exactly just the same I just don’t remember or even know your names but there’s something still familiar, the music still remains I’m melting down but the world still looks the same It’s time to say goodbye now I’m falling back through time even if I knew how I could never cross that line I’m melting down as the flowers still bloom but I will be found in the light of your eyes As all my memories are erased from my mind they will still live on here within a song and you know I loved every moment I spent with you I’d do it all again, exactly just the same

Timeless 08:35
“Timeless” There is no time Time for this There is no time Time for this I remember the day your eyes met mine There under the stars so far away I never thought the day would come we would have to say goodbye embrace the dance as memories move on There is no time Time for this There is no time for this

On the edge of all desire where belief and truth conspire Is a place we’re free to live in clarity and it’s the path that source requires So raise the oars and let the currents flow Where this river goes, there’s no need to row We separate ourselves from our futures past And moving on we hope to find a love that always last So raise the oars and let the currents flow Where the river goes you don’t need to know if you just let go and float on down the stream you’d realize life is the dream We separate ourselves from the bitter past And making peace with where we are, is the way to make love last The path of least resistance you know what it is you need to do just take a deep breath and follow your own intuition and step by step it will surely guide you on your way home So raise the oars and let the currents flow - forever As the river rolls you don’t need to know - forever if you just let go and float on down the stream - forever you’d realize life is the dream

“Emotional Vampires” Nothing from nothing That’s what you give You’ve got to take Something from something That’s how you live So many people only want to have their way they’ll make you think, they’re giving it all away disguised as givers they will take just what they need to further themselves along the way Nothing from nothing what’s left to give? You got to get a share of my something That’s what it means to live Nothing from nothing That’s what you give You’ve got to take Something from something That’s how you live So many people only want to have their way they’ll make you think, they’re giving it all away disguised as givers they will take just what they need to further themselves along the way It’s time to take back the control you gave away from those that tried to drain your heart Nothing from nothing what’s left to give? You got to get a share of my something That’s what it means to live

Just a Man 04:00
It’s just the work I do every day there’s no illusions or games we have to play whoever said you have to be a star to love your life and live just as you are Expression, it’s the only way to move on from the past and give your love away With the stars in my eyes reaching out for your hand with these scars my soul cries here I am just a man I never said I was the best but with this vision I could never really rest Yes it’s all that I can be and I’m not afraid to let to let you see - all of me As imperfect as I am standing tall I’ll walk my way through each day With the stars in my eyes reaching out for your hand with these scars my soul cries here I am just a man It’s just the work I do every day there’s no illusions or games we have to play

“Dreaming Out Loud” For the first time in years I can feel For the first time I’ve come around and I can breathe the air I’m Dreaming out loud for the first time I’ve opened my eyes sometimes the bottle can drown out the dream I’m Dreaming out loud straight through the clouds and the skies with a kiss, grace falls at your feet so many memories they seemed to have vanished in the haze I know you’ll grow I’m Dreaming out loud for the first time I’ve opened my eyes Close the door and turn the key I’m Dreaming out loud there’s so much of life to give

about

A compilation of all the digital singles I released in 2016. Life is the Dream reflects an artist in transition and a world in turmoil. 2016 was a year that had many highs and mostly lows it seemed. I'm not sure where we're heading but I'm still on board and my boat hasn't gone under yet and for that, I am truly thankful. I'm looking forward to the future and ready to move on into new waters! ;-) - JOF
