Joseph James writes some of his music to encourage folks going through tough times to keep on going and follow their dreams.
ANGEL ON THE WAY
Angels are all around us as well as demons. They interact with our prayers and sometimes we get to see them. The power of prayer and the angels can change destinies helping us get through things miraculously.
This song illustrates the miraculous journey of my wife, Janiece. What incredible miracles by a God who works mighty miracles. Nothing is impossible for Him! I’ve written her biography, Sentenced To Death, Destined For Life and now I have the privilege of writing and dedicating this song to her. It tells her story in about 4 minutes. LOCKED INSIDE a prison not made of steel and stone, but with thoughts that are sometimes stronger… After all hope was lost, the Lord stepped in, set her free and healed her completely.
FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS
This is the raw track for the theme song for the FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS Tour. Everyone has a dream and to discover it, go for it, and weathering through all the storms on the way can be difficult, but it’s always worth it. Don’t give up your dream and don’t end your life prematurely. Storms are temporary and soon the sun will shine again. If you need help, please get it. Sometimes just making it through another day is all that’s needed. We felt it necessary to get this song out quickly and then record it later in a studio with all of the background instruments. Be encouraged!
HONEY I LOVE YOU
Sometimes we get lost in the crowd and sometimes the crowd are our friends. There is someone special though who sees us even when we are all alone inside our self. He loves us and He really does have our heart in His hands. Remember, we are never really alone.
FLY FROM HERE
Has someone ever left you and you are left holding the pieces of a shattered dream. We have choices to make. Will we die right there in that place of broken dreams or can we find the strength to fly again. In that moment… I’ve been there and it isn’t easy, but this song is a testament to my making it through and you can too. Be encouraged and FLY FROM HERE!
Identity – People searching for identity. I struggled with it for years until I found the answer for me. I hope this song blesses you.
SMOKING OF THE GUN
Joseph wrote this song to provide some choices along the way to suicide. What choice will we make? What choice will our friends make? Will we be able to recognize the signs and be able to help? Pass this song along to your friends. Sometimes we don’t know how close those around us are to ending it all. It can happen in an instant, the result of some sudden traumatic change in a life. Choose life!
A TABLE FOR TWO
At A Table For Two is one of my favorite of the songs I’ve written over the years. With our new studio, I was now able to finally able to record it the way I wanted it to sound. The song begins with a lady sitting at a table for two, looking out across the ocean while waiting expectantly for her lover to meet her. The time drags on and she begins to wonder if he will ever come, until she sees a light on the ocean. Is it him? What could have happened? Romance, expectancy… I hope you enjoy it.
