Bio:
My name is Steven Jackson I am a Singer/Songwriter from Kingston, Ontario, Canada.I have been writing songs for many years and I view the process as a journey. The beauty of songwriting is you never know where it is going to take you. Many roads become explored within the labyrinth of your mind and many emotions are uncovered.

VOICES TO BE HEARD:     Music and Lyrics by Steven Jackson

 

Voices can be heard all around the world

Trying to make it better trying to make a difference

People wait in line all they've got is time

All the time in the world for voices to be heard

Looking to the sky looking for a sign

Waiting for deliverence waiting for a saviour

People talk in words voices to be heard

Amidst the noise below the traffic ebbs and flows.

 

Hands in front of faces silence in the crowd

Voices not allowed for heads that are now bowed

Hear the silence grow from people far below

Guns are held up high pointing to your eyes

March in single file for mile after mile

The Master with his whip tightening his grip

Voices to be heard all around the world

Silenced in their prime silenced for all time.

 

Try to make a sad song better

Try to make a sad song better

Try to make a sad song better

Try to make a sad song better.

 

Voices can be heard all around the world

Trying to make a difference trying to make it better

People wait in line all they've got is time

All the time in the world for voices to be heard.

UP ABOVE MY HEAD:       Music and Lyrics by Steven Jackson

 

Up Above My head there is blue sky

Below my feet there is dark

Somewhere in the middle

There is me

Lost in thought.

 

Trying to make sense of a crazy world

When nothing makes sense to me at all

We're all just looking for the answers

Hoping for more.

 

Is this all there is ?

Do we continue when we die ?

Do the bad souls descend to Hell

While the good souls rise to the sky, ah ! Heaven !.

 

Are we just pawns on a giant chessboard

Being moved by some power above

Are we just actors on a stage

Looking for love.

 

Walking blindly with nowhere to go

Watching ourselves as we age and grow

Staring in the mirror

Staring at the sky

Waiting to die.

 

Is this all there is ?

What happens when we die ?

Does being bad condemn you to Hell

While being good means you rise to the sky, ah ! Heaven !.

 

Up Above My head there is blue sky

Below my feet there is dark

Somewhere in the mirror

There is me

Lost in thought.

 UPON THE SEA : Music and Lyrics by Steven Jackson

A man adrift at sea dreams of a place that he would rather be
Feeling sick to his stomach as the waves heave him up and down again
But there is hope a light beckons on the horizon to set him free
And a lifetime passes before his eyes
As he rests upon the sea
Upon the sea.

But that was a lifetime ago when an ocean felt like tears upon a veil
And loneliness wasn't right taking comfort from the blowing of a whale
With the sea you pass a thousand years
And you learn to quickly face your fears
And a lifetime passes before your eyes as you gaze upon the sea and sky
So warily upon the sea.

I just want to let you know how I feel
This is something that I'd rather not conceal
Close your eyes the sea will sweep you off your feet
Don't ever throw in the towel admit your defeat.

A man adrift at sea can't think of a place he'd  rather be
At home amongst the waves he dreams of a life that he has saved
And he is home he feels the tears welling in his eyes
Certain assurance from a lifetime that passed him by
Now he is free upon the sea
Now he is free upon the sea.

GOODBYE (To You My Friend) : Music and Lyrics by Steven Jackson


Goodbye to you my friend
I can clearly see the end
There's been laughter
There's been pain
But I would do it all again
Goodbye to you, goodbye
Goodbye.

Goodbye to a world so blue
It saddens me what we've done to you
I hear you crying in your pain
I'd like to take it all away
Goodbye to you, goodbye
Goodbye.

Goodbye I will close my eyes
Goodbye please do not cry
Don't be sad I'm leaving you
It's the only thing to do
Goodbye to you, goodbye
Goodbye.

Goodbye to you my friend
This is feeling like the end
There's been laughter
There's been pain
But I would do it all again
Goodbye to you, goodbye

 MY GOD : Music and Lyrics by Steven Jackson

My God is greater than your god
Taller than your god
Stronger than your god
Wiser than your god
More mighty than your god
More merciful than your god
More loving than your god
More giving than your god.

I believe there's a power watching upon high
Passing judgement on how we live our lives
But I don't believe in a god who wants you to kill in his name
Killing others is just plain insane, and that's not God
And that's not God
And that's not God
And that's not God.

My God's ruled longer than your god
Is stronger than your god
Values life more than your god
Is more right than your god
Values living more than your god
More forgiving than your god
More understanding than your god
More outstanding than your god.

I believe there's a power watching upon high
Passing judgement on how we live our lives
But I don't believe in a god who wants you to kill in his name
Killing others is just plain insane, and that's not god
And that's not God
And that's not God
And that's not God.

I find it hard to believe in the inherent goodness of mankind
Our wilful destruction of this planet is driving me out of my mind
We're so hung up the colour of a person's skin, their ideologies, the way they see the world.
Everybody should be equal no one rising above any other boy or girl, man, woman, or beast,
We don't have dominion.

My God is greater than your god
Bolder than your god
More real than your god
One who feels more than your god
Is more wiser than your god
Rises higher than your god
Values living more than your god
Is more giving than your god
Is more loving than your god
More understanding than your god
More merciful than your god
More mighty than your god
Mmm God.

PLEASE TELL ME WHY:    Music and Lyrics by Steven Jackson

Look at you
Now look at me
The Earth and sky
And the place in between
The setting Sun and the rising Moon
If only we could co-exist like them too.

I close my eyes
And I drift away
To another time
To another place
Please tell me why
With all of Heaven above
We cannot find peace on Earth
We cannot find the Love.

I don't know what it is I'm trying to do
But the only thing that's working is me and you
I don't know what it is I'm trying to say
Please tell me why
Please tell me why.

So when you think
You've finally found your truth
Climb up a ladder
And stand upon your roof
Then gaze upon
The world that's waiting below
Are you feeling small
Feeling insecure.
Please tell me why
With all Creation below
We watch the ripples we create
With the stones we throw
Please tell me why
With all of Heaven above
We cannot find peace on Earth
We cannot find the love.

I don't know what it is I'm trying to do
But the only thing that's working is me and you
I don't know what it is I'm trying to say
Please tell me why
Please tell me why.

Look at you
Now look at me
The Earth and sky
And the space in between
The setting Sun and the rising Moon
If only we could co-exist like them too.
