Music Video – “Masquerade” by Mark D. Jones

“Masquerade” is based on my original song of the same title, and tells the story of my memories of deploying to the Persian Gulf War at the end of 1990. The song’s lyrics plead, “Let’s build a world based on love, Build a world we can be proud of, Instead of a masquerade, Instead of a masquerade…” The video includes photos I took of our son, David, before deploying; of David and I at home in Germany, and at the Hahn Air Base Deployment Center before deploying; of me while deployed to the Persian Gulf, and finally of my return to Germany and back home again with David. I’ve dedicated this video to the People of Kuwait in hopes that all peoples of the world can one day, “build a world based on love, build a world we can be proud of, instead of a masquerade…” Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

Original Song – “Times Of Our Lives”

Times Of Our Lives is a reflective and introspective little song about this journey we travel through life – leading us down a long and winding path to the eventual discovery of a gentle patience and acceptance of all that life offers us, an appreciation for what each day brings, a reassuring peace of mind, and the love and light of God in Christ. Our experiences of sharing this pathway called life are often a mixed bag of happiness, sadness, good times and bad – all moments to be experienced and treasured for what they have to teach us – for, “These are the times of our lives, Watchin’ the days passin’ me by, Just like clouds in the sky, As they drift by and by…”

~~~~~~~~~~

I recorded my original song “Times Of Our Lives” in two takes as demos on Set 10 in 1997, and it speaks of living each day one by one, “These are the best of times, These are the worst of times, But they’re the only times, We’ll ever have, we’ll ever have…” Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

Original Song – “You Get What You Pray For”

You Get What You Pray For is a song that speaks to my experience of life, prayer and following my heart.  Many of my songs have a faith-based theme, and I’ve tried to reflect positive and uplifting lyrics within all my songs.  I’d always wanted to write songs ever since I was a teenager, but it wasn’t until almost 20 years later that I said a prayer asking God to allow me to write songs if it was within His will for me, and my prayer was answered in that very minute.  I went on to write over 200 songs in about a four year period while juggling everything else in my life, and learned the meaning of being careful what we pray for because it just might come true.  Surrounded by piles of lyrics, scribbles of written music and guitar chords, I found that I was overwhelmed by the responsibility of shepherding what I had prayed for.  Although I hadn’t prayed to be a performer, it seemed logical that I was to perform the songs I’d written, and despite investing my time and resources into trying, it wasn’t meant to be.  I questioned God’s purpose in giving me these songs if I was unable to do anything with them, yet now as I’m posting my songs online and describing their essence to you, God’s plan for my prayer was larger than I could have ever dreamed of on my own!  The key line in this song is the second verse of this line, “You know you get what you pray for, The Lord gives you what you need…”  Amen.

~~~~~~~~~~

I recorded my original song “You Get What You Pray For” on Set 4 in 1996, and this song completes the set.  The song speaks to my personal experience with prayer, for it was a prayer that led to this and all of my songs, “You know you get what you pray for, The Lord gives you what you need…” Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

Original Song – “Crooked Highway”

Crooked Highway is a song about the journey of our lives – the wandering path we travel from birth to death and all points in between. Looking ahead from the inexperience of youth, the winding course before us leads into a fog of uncertainty: Where will it take us? How will it all turn out?  Will I live my dreams?  Will I be happy? Looking back from the wisdom of age, the course of our lives reminds us of the effort it took to get to this point in our lives, the wrong turns we’ve taken along the way, the disappointments we’ve had – as well as, the success and happiness we’ve achieved over the years. The truth is that none of us achieves anything on our own – for our success is the product of all those who have helped us along the way – and especially for me, it’s my faith in God that has given me the courage, confidence and ability to keep going into the future…  “The path goes on forever, Never an end in sight, You ask yourself a question, Will it all turn out alright…”

~~~~~~~~~~

I recorded my original song “Crooked Highway” as a demo on Set 14 in 1997, and it speaks to the journey of our lives, “You walk down a crooked highway, Follow a crooked path, You carry a heavy load, A burden upon your back…” Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

Original Song – “Fruit Of Your Heart”

Fruit Of Your Heart is a dreamy, enchanting and mesmerizing little song that has a heavenly, otherworldly and mystical sort of feel to it. It’s the kind of song you could listen to with your eyes closed in the corner of a garden all by yourself while peacefully meditating.  The song equates our hearts to fertile soil, into which God plants a seed of love.  This seed of love then needs to root and grow while we water, nourish and nurture it. As the seed of love roots and grows in the fertile soil of our hearts, it gains strength to grow tall and flourish – bearing fruit that becomes the visible fruit of our hearts to others. Sadly, modern society isn’t always a nurturing place for love to flourish and grow, which requires us to create within us the nurturing environment and conditions where love can prosper and flourish until its fruit have matured – which are then to be given away as gifts of love to others.  “If you take the time, To let your love grow, You will find, Your love will flow from within, Love will flow from within…

~~~~~~~~~~

I recorded my original song “Fruit Of Your Heart” as a demo on Set 15 in 1997, and it speaks to nurturing the seed of love God plants in our hearts, “Take the time to water your heart, And love will be the fruit of your heart, And grow from within your heart…” Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

Original Song – Love Is Like A Flower

Love Is Like A Flower reflects a natural and organic approach to describing the glow and experience of being in love – after all, love is one of the most natural aspects of our lives!  What is love, if not the process of nurturing and nourishing souls? Love encourages us all to rise to the highest pinnacles of humanity to love and care for one another.  The singer in this song realizes that he or she doesn’t deserve the love that’s given to them, representing the selfless and giving aspect of unconditional love – love for love’s sake.  The rose symbolizes the fragile and precious nature of love so perfectly – in form, function, color, texture, aroma and fragrance – and the singer uses that symbolism in singing, “Love is like a flower, Like the petals of a rose, So perfect and fragile, Like a flower our love grows…”

~~~~~~~~~~

I recorded “Love Is Like A Flower” in two separate versions in Set 8, and will post both of them for you today. They’re played on my 12-string Ovation acoustic guitar, with Take One using a pick to strum with in my usual way, and Take Two was simply strumming the guitar with my fingers, which created a softer version of the same song and my favorite of the two ~ enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

~~~~~~~~~~

This is the second take of when I recorded “Love Is Like A Flower” back in the 1996-1997 time frame. I simply strummed the guitar with my fingers, which was a different style that I used occasionally while practicing at home. The song is over 4 minutes long, which is a long song as my songs go, and I lost the rhythm of my finger strumming for a second or two in the middle of the song ~ but I like the overall softer and more tender version this take created…mistake and all! Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

Original Song – “Dawn Of Morning”

Dawn Of Morning is an emotional song about the work of bringing the world together in light and love to solve the problems of the world – and make the pain of living go away for so many who are suffering around the world. The challenge appears so daunting and futile when standing alone, watching the sunrise of a new day and thinking about all the challenges facing our world.  Where does one even begin and what direction do we go, when so many people in our world are suffering today?

It may seem counterintuitive, but the place to start changing the world around us is by first changing ourselves from the inside out – to reflect the change we want to see in the world.  To bring peace and love into the world, our focus must first be on bringing peace and love into our own lives.  If we are successful in living our lives in peace and love, then over time, others will see it and want that same peace and love to fill their lives, too.  Changing the world isn’t about fixing everything at once, it’s about starting down the path of peace and love one step at a time within ourselves.  Once we have learned firsthand how to live lives of peace and love, then the task is simply showing the way for others to follow.  “Do you know the road to go, Do you know the way, Can you help to bring the world, A little more love today…”

~~~~~~~~~~

I recorded my original song “Dawn Of Morning” in two takes on Set 5 in 1996, and each one conveys a completely different flavor, feel and atmosphere to the song. Take one is a faster and more upbeat version while take two has a slower and more intimate feel ~ they both ask, “Can you help to bring the world, A little more love today…” ♡ 🙂 Mark

Original Song – “Mercy, Mercy”

Mercy, Mercy is a little song I wrote in 1992 about relationships and the generic power of attraction they can have over us.  This song always puts a smile on my face and tells the story of a girl named Mercy and the attraction she holds on the singer.  The song isn’t autobiographical, but serves as a reminder of the power of love and attraction – especially reflected in the common saying “mercy, mercy…goodness sakes alive!”  The singer acknowledges in each verse, “That girl’s got a hold on me, Her name is Mercy…sweet sweet Mercy…Got a hold on me!”

~~~~~~~~~~

I recorded “Mercy, Mercy” 3 times on Set 6 back in 1996, and this is the second take and the first of two versions I’ll share with you. It’s a fictional song about a girl named “Mercy” and how she has a hold on me ~ enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

Original Song – “Do You Care”

Do You Care is a song that asks if we care about helping the people in our world who struggle and suffer every day.  The song speaks of changing our world and alleviating suffering – pleading with all of us to, “Take a look around you, you know there has to be a better way, We can change the world if we try, and help the people who suffer and cry…”

~~~~~~~~~~

I recorded my original song “Do You Care” on Set Three in 1996, and it asks us to “Take a look around you, you know there has to be a better way, Look at the problems, in the world today, Are you helping, to make a better day, For the world, all around you, Do you care…” This track turned out as best as I could possibly do ~ so even if you haven’t listened before to my demos from years ago, you might want to listen to this one ~ enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

Verse One:

A                                                                                           G

Have you seen the sun rise, early in the morning, at the break of day

A                                                                                     G

Sunshine for a world, where people’s lives are often cold and gray

A                                                                                          G

You get up in the morning, and stumble off to work to start the day

A                                                                                   G

Take a look around you, you know there has to be a better way

Chorus:

Bm            G             Bm             G

Look at the problems, in the world today

Bm       G              Bm                G

Are you helping, to make a better day

                Em              C

Oh do you care, do you care  (x3)

           Em         C

For the world, all around you

G   D    A

Do you care  (x3)

Verse Two:

A                                                                             G

Have you seen the moon rise, over a city cold dark and gray

          A                                                                         G

People tryin’ to survive, just waiting for the light of another day

A                                                                                        G

Lookin’ all around them, wondering how they will ever find their way

            A

Is there something you could do, to help the people in your world

G

today

Verse Three:

A                                                                                G

Have you seen the snow fly, blown by the wind as a baby cries

          A                                                                            G

People livin’ shattered lives, looking to the world if only to ask why

A                                                                             G

Why do people suffer, why do they have to starve and die

            A

We can change the world if we try, and help the people who suffer and

G

cry

Original Song – “Green Eyed Sally”

Green Eyed Sally is a complex song about relationships.  It tells the story of Sally, a girlfriend or spouse who has decided to throw away her current life to go off and search for herself – for who she really is and wants to be.  The story line discusses the age old tale of ‘the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence’ and the personal search for meaning and fulfillment.

There often comes a point in people’s lives when they realize that the dream, or song, that they carry somewhere deep inside of them has been deferred too long – to the point where they suddenly realize that they never even attempted to live out their hopes and dreams.  Once they realize this, the tendency is to make an irrational decision to throw everything away and finally chase that dream before it’s too late.  Too often they are too late and ill equipped to succeed in their last ditch attempt to rescue their lives – and in the process others get hurt – spouses, children, family and friends.  How much better it would be to deliberately live a life with purpose and meaning all along, so as to not face a mid-life crisis in a panic after realizing that you never even reached for your dreams.

Green Eyed Sally builds over four verses to peak at the song’s conclusion.  The singer’s impassioned plea is an attempt to build a bridge to her and find some common ground for her to return home, “I’m looking at your rainbow’s end right before our door, I know that you’ve always wanted a little somethin’ more, Maybe you and I can find, Somethin’ worth staying for, Won’t you come back to me…”

~~~~~~~~~~

I recorded my original song “Green Eyed Sally” on Set Two in 1996, and it tells the story of a woman who has left home to search for herself – while her significant other makes an impassioned plea for her to return back home. If I was to do this song again I would begin much slower, instead of racing from the beginning, but this is simply a snapshot from that day in my life ~ enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark
