A NEW CHAPTER Lyrics by Jakki Jelene I opened up a door To let my future in Swallowed all my pride Dealt with me inside The life I knew before The painful memories Haunted me for years Now I’ve wiped away those tears An adventure in the great unknown Yearned for me to find the key To unlock the pages in the book of life For a new beginning that waits for me I’ve broken down the walls In this fight for victory Moving at the speed of light In search of pleasant dreams I’m still far from where I’ll be in the end But with every step that I take I’m that much further from where I began My eyes are open wide Because of revelation Rushing like a wave Over the path I laid An adventure in the great unknown Yearned for me to find the key To unlock the pages in the book of life For a new beginning that waits for me

HUMAN, AFTER ALL Lyrics by Jakki Jelene I must confess that I struggle now and then And you will find that I’m not as I appear I keep my cool because I know what I must do Collect myself or end up like a fool I must confess when you’re near me I’m alive I fall apart when I see you look my way But you never seem to see beyond these walls Or realize how I want your love I may seem strong, but inside I’m weak Like a child who doesn’t know the way And I do my best to show good face But I must confess that I’m human after all I’m warm inside when you return my smile You fascinate and tantalize this heart You seem so strong but you’re only human too Do I stand a chance to break down your resolve? I may seem strong, but inside I’m weak Like a child who doesn’t know the way And I do my best to show good face But I must confess that I’m human after all Desire is a thing that can overcome your consciousness And all the logical things you know to do You find yourself aware of things you wouldn’t normally mind No longer in control of what you knew to be true I may seem strong, but inside I’m weak Like a child who doesn’t know the way And I do my best to show good face But I must confess that I’m human after all

Evening Sky 04:46
EVENING SKY Lyrics by Jakki Jelene When the trees are black against the evening sky And sprays of pink and purple go floating by The sun is setting as the moon is rising high And all the world is tucked away warm inside But there is one girl, in a dream world Who is just beginning to feel alive Evening sky you write my name Your brief existence fuels my life And when it's time for you to fade I stand in awe of your beauty (your beauty amazes me) Proof of God's existence could not be more clear The wonders of the Universe in the atmosphere Stars that twinkle soft against the darkening blue Are witness to a miracle that's always made new Inspiration for every nation Canvas cannot capture this perfect view Evening sky you write my name Your brief existence fuels my life And when it's time for you to fade I stand in awe of your beauty

POPSICLES & ICICLES Lyrics by David Gates Popsicles, icicles, baseball and fancy clothes These are a few of the things he loves He loves Levis and blue eyes And wind blowin' through his hair These are a part of the boy I love If you put them all together Much to your surprise (oh tell me what) You'll find a bit of heaven Right before your eyes Bright stars and guitars and Drive-ins on Friday night These are a few of the things we love (May be) silly but still he is Just what I dream about Yes, he's the boy that I love If you put them all together Much to your surprise (oh tell me what) You'll find a bit of heaven Right before your eyes Bright stars and guitars and Drive-ins on Friday night These are a few of the things we love (May be) silly but still he is Just what I dreamed about Yes, he's the boy that I love Popsicles, icicles Popsicles, icicles, hmmm

DEEP BLUE SEA Lyrics by Jakki Jelene We intend to go We intend to see Places in our dreams Where we long to be It seems so out of touch To those who have no vision But nothing's what it seems There's no certainty Sailing high on white capped waves Above the salty brine We're traveling upon the deep blue sea Deep blue sea Deep blue sea We'll close our eyes tonight And leave behind reality Like wings we're taking flight To another world A land yet unexplored That no one can imagine But when we come ashore We will surely see Sailing high on white capped waves Above the salty brine We're traveling upon the deep blue sea Deep blue sea Deep blue sea

I Love You 05:23
I LOVE YOU Lyrics by Jakki Jelene You say that you're leaving And that there's nothing I can say or do To change your mind You claim that my feelings Were never strong enough to see you through But you were blind When all my life, my heart has longed to sing this song An endless fight to find the words to say to you And by and by I never could quite figure how But I will tell you now. I love you Please hear me out I know I'm coming at the midnight hour You say that it's too late Looking back I realize That there was so much more that I could say But I was afraid When all my life, my heart has longed to sing this song An endless fight to find the words to say to you And by and by I never could quite figure how But I will tell you now. I love you I built a fortress around my heart In hopes of shutting out the pain And now I watch as all my efforts crumble to the ground As you're slipping away... When all my life, my heart has longed to sing this song An endless fight to find the words to say to you And by and by I never could quite figure how But I will tell you now. I love you

Invisible 05:03
INVISIBLE Lyrics by Jakki Jelene Sometimes I wonder what is missing Do you feel what I feel? And sometimes I wonder what is wrong Why I feel so alone Sometimes I wonder, I just wonder What to do with myself And sometimes I take it all in stride Try to smile despite the blue Yes I do, yes I do Try to smile despite the blue I love you more than you could ever know Even though I realize I'm invisible Just being close to you is enough for me To begin another day I hang on every word you say And try smile despite the blue, yes I do Sometimes I wonder if you see me When you're looking my way And sometimes I wonder if you know That you're all I'm living for Sometimes I wonder, I just wonder How to give up this game And sometimes I know it's all in vain Try to smile despite the blue Yes I do, yes I do Try to smile despite the blue I love you more than you could ever know Even though I realize I'm invisible Just being close to you is enough for me To begin another day I hang on every word you say And try smile despite the blue, yes I do

Give It Up 03:54
Give It Up Lyrics by Jakki Jelene We're a funny a pair, you and me Is it love or are you my enemy? I hear you've been sayin' It's me you've been playin' You don't have a clue that I am onto you I don't care about your game strategy I'm not intimidated that easily It's time you're admittin' You're really quite smitten And if you deny it Then I'm out the door So you can give it up, give it up Give it up, baby you lose Give it up, give it up Honey you're black and blue The stakes are rising and you just can't ignore You know you found your match in me that's for sure And what goes around Comes back around Just when you think that you've won The game's just begun So you can give it up, give it up Give it up, baby you lose Give it up, give it up Honey you're black and blue Our love is always on the brink of madness And love is only what you make it to be So you can give it up, give it up Give it up, baby you lose Give it up, give it up Honey you're black and blue

Vapor 04:48
VAPOR Lyrics by Jakki Jelene I recall so many things But they pale with each passing day Another year comes to a close How did the time get away? Time flies when you're having fun I heard somebody say The laughter we once shared with friends Is now gone and can never replay Why does it never last? We cannot stop time Yesterday is the past But today feels like tomorrow I cannot see tomorrow La la la la la la la Where does a moment go? Does it fade like a vapor? Or is it drifting out in space Yet to be rediscovered? Can the memories be recovered? La la la la la la la Why does it never last? We cannot stop time Yesterday is the past But today feels like tomorrow Where have you gone, tomorrow? La la la la la la la When it all fades away will there be rain? Will there be snow? I just don't know I recall so many things...

Luminous 04:04
LUMINOUS Lyrics by Jakki Jelene Luminous One you have captivated me And the Passion is claiming my soul Your brilliant flashing light and your incandescent glow Is the source of making me whole You are radiant to me and I cannot help but see The Son shining where you reside You are radiant to me and I cannot help but be Consumed by this fire that's burning me up inside O Luminous One Luminous One you are such a mystery All the heavens and earth praise your name I am overtaken by the power of your blood As I fall on my knees in this place You are radiant to me and I cannot help but see The Son shining where you reside You are radiant to me and I cannot help but be Consumed by this fire that's burning me up inside O Luminous One You are radiant to me and I cannot help but see The Son shining where you reside You are radiant to me and I cannot help but be Consumed by this fire that's burning me up inside O Luminous One Emanating, radiating Love (Luminous One) I will never stop praising your illuminating love (Luminous One)

about

In a time where much of mainstream music is hollow and coarse, Jakki Jelene once again presents her brand of sophisticated pop through her latest album, Luminous. With influences from electronica, trip hop, synth and 60's pop, her music fills a void for adult listeners who enjoy a good hook, but yearn for deeper meaning. Her soaring vocals exude a striking mix of strength and vulnerability, backed by lush, rich harmonies. Featuring eloquent lyrics that tell stories and touch on a wide range of subjects from love to spiritual observations.
