“Washes Over Me” If only words were true light, then the days would move in black and white, If only colors you were, it would be the sheen from dawn to bright, I believe I saw you, and I saw your glow one lovely night, and I felt your winds blow, making sure I got the message right, color of peaches, ripe in the ecstasy, yes electricity, yes you’re the heat for me, washes over me, as a river moves, flows into the sea, washes over me, as a burst of fire, flames, washes over me, as a river moves, flows into the sea, washes over me, as a burst of fire, flames, washes over me, If ever words were pure, free, then the nights would move in melody, If ever rhythms you were, it would be the solace of the seas, I believe in miracles, in your face a sky of mystery, and I felt your rains flow, making sure the flowers grow in me, color of peaches, ripe in the ecstasy, yes electricity, yes you’re the heat for me, washes over me, as a river moves, flows into the sea, washes over me, as a burst of fire, flames, washes over me, as a flower grows, leans towards the sun, washes over me, as a burst of fire, flames, washes over me, as a dance is done, stepping one by one, washes over me, as a burst of fire, flames, washes over me, yeah, washes over me, yeah, yeah, washes over me, washes over me, over me, over me, washes over me, yeah, yeah, washes over me, washes over me, washes over me, over me, washes over me, over me, over me, washes over me, yeah.

“Don’t Want To Talk” don’t want to talk about it, still sad upset about it, don’t want to talk about it now, so far I’ve gone without her, still can’t forget about her, don’t want to talk about it now, maybe in time, the smoke will clear, maybe then I can relax, maybe in time, it won’t hurt so much, just to remember her touch, and I remember her touch, don’t want to talk about it, still sad upset about it, don’t want to talk about it now, so far I’ve gone without her, still can’t forget about her, don’t want to talk about it now, one twist, and the fate is sealed, one suffering blow, one chance, at the final deal, you know that, someone’s gonna steal the show, someone’s gonna spin the wheel, someone’s gonna steal the show, someone’s gonna spin the wheel, someone’s gonna break my heart, yeah, maybe in time, shadows disappear, maybe then I can move on, maybe in time, it won’t hurt so much, just to remember her touch, and I remember her touch, her touch, I remember her touch, don’t want to talk about it, don’t want to talk about it now, don’t want to talk about it, don’t want to talk about it now, don’t want to talk about it, don’t want to talk about it now, don’t want to talk about it, don’t want to talk about it now, don’t want to talk about it, don’t want to talk about it now, don’t want to talk about it, don’t want to talk about it now, don’t want to talk about it, don’t want to talk about it now, don’t want to talk about it, don’t want to talk about it.

Here and Now 05:42
“Here and Now” here, when you want it, deep into the source, here, will light our way, here we’re never lost, open the places where, secrets will reside, here, this moment, we have nothing to hide, dance, we are the wings of angels, free and we will rise, cry, feel the weight of ages, fall from our eyes, here, as you want it, face into the wind, here as we pacify, seek solace within, dance, we are the wings of angels, free and we will rise, cry, feel the weight of ages, fall from our eyes, here, and now, here where you want it, deep into the source, here, will light our way, here we’re never lost, smile, breathe the light of laughter, you will realize, stand, ride the waves and shadows, sadness will subside, hope, we’re the forces of magic, armies of surprise, be, carry the torch of passion, live with dreams and fire, dance, we are the wings of angels, free and we will rise, cry, feel the weight of ages, fall from our eyes, here, and now, here, and now, here, and now, here, and now, here, and now, here, and now,

Sit & Wait 05:05
“Sit and Wait” by and by, gypsy dreams, moon on water, shimmer shimmer sheens, pitching pennies on down the hall, the young one’s think they’ve seen it all, how and why, the folks don’t know, sitting and waiting feelings they don’t show, answers are coming, in the morning mail, the young one’s wounds might never heal, another story line, justice evades them, time after time, never knowing why, they sit and wait, they sit and wait, holding up an image so bold, deep inside afraid and cold, tie a knot, replace a thought, the young one’s think it can be bought, another story line, justice evades them, time after time after time, soon they will know why, they sit and wait, they sit and wait, they sit and wait, they sit and wait, high and dry, the captain’s sit, sinking what, they don’t deem fit, but for now, the shots they call, the young one’s know that they must fall, another story line, justice evades them, time after time after time, now that they know why, they sit and wait, they sit and wait, they sit and wait, they sit and wait, they sit and wait, they sit and wait, they sit and wait, they sit and wait, they sit and wait, they sit and wait, they sit and wait, they sit and wait, they sit and wait.

Amazing 05:05
“Amazing”   everywhere I go, everyplace I look, in the face of it all is the chance I took, I took a chance on love, now will it be true, I gave my all, gave it all to you,   your love is so amazing, I never knew I would, I never felt I could,   I stumbled along, with my loneliness, I never felt I belonged anywhere, and I knew I could never pass the test, and my life was on empty, I knew that something had to change, but I did not know just where to begin, how to rid my soul of all this pain,   I knew there was more to life than this, and I knew it would be no more than what I make it, and I saw in you my chance and I’m gonna take it, and this pattern of pain I knew I had to break it,   your love is so amazing, so amazing,   everywhere I go, every time I try, in the face of it all is the question why, I took a chance on love, now will it be true, I gave my all, gave it all to you,   your love is so amazing, I never knew I would, I never felt I could,   I stumbled along, with my loneliness, I never felt I belonged anywhere, and I knew I could never pass the test, and my life was on empty, I knew that something had to change, but I did not know just where to begin, how to rid my soul of all this pain,   I knew there was more to life than this, and I knew it would be no more than what I make it, and I saw in you my chance and I’m gonna take it, and this pattern of pain I knew I had to break it,   your love is so amazing, so amazing.

We Will Be 04:50
“We Will Be” I want your world inside of mine, inside where all we need will be, a dance of you, a dance of me, inside this world with you, I will be, we will be, we will be, we will be all we need, we will be so complete, sitting in her corner chair, through the window I just watch, I see an man, what does he care about, a dance of you, a dance of me, inside this world with you, I will be, we will be, we will be, we will be, we will be, we will be all we need, we will be so complete, we will be satisfied, we will be for all our lives, we will be so complete, we will be satisfied, we will be all we need, we will be for all our lives.

“One of the most lyrical musicians working today...singularly personal and arresting and one of contemporary music’s few genuine poets... Jackson’s daring, darting vocal is so serene yet intense that one is hard-put naming a contemporary vocalist of similar grace and power.” – DownBeat

“A highly distinctive and beautiful CD of originals...his own unique style that synthesizes jazz, pop and soul...filled with romantic longing and smoldering passion.” – Music Revue

“Michael Gregory Jackson's high tenor voice calls to mind Smokey Robinson, Sting or Ben Harper as it flows with his guitar riffs...He doesn’t back away from the difficult and sometimes raw themes connected with love and loss. Lays bare the sinews of human emotion. Jackson’s honesty and hypnotic sound mixes are unabashedly mellow.” – The Advocate

“Jackson’s voice recalls vintage Prince, Curtis Mayfield and Aaron Neville...There’s little doubt that Jackson remains a stringman
supreme.” – Sunday Republican
