Biography

Jacqueline Nassar is a 18 year old singer, songwriter, and artist from Clarksdale, Mississippi. Her music career began at the age of seven, when she learned to play the drums. By eight years old, she picked up the guitar and it is now her main instrument. Somewhere in between she managed to learn to play bass and keyboard. Jacqueline has proven to be very versatile, playing original rock songs as well as just about anything you could think to ask her to play.

Jacqueline graduated from the Arts and Education Program at the Delta Blues Museum in 2000 as Most Outstanding Student. While with the band "Blues Prodigy", she won the W.C. Handy Kids Foundation Award. Jacqueline was chosen to receive the first Robert Johnson Award for Youth Excellence which was presented to her by Morgan Freeman and Steve Johnson (Robert Johnson's grandson) at the age of 13. In an article in the Commercial Appeal about Jacqueline being the spokesperson for the Guns for Guitars Program she was described as a "pint sized" Stevie Ray Vaughn.

Jacqueline has opened for Blues great B.B. King, country artists Rebecca Lynn Howard, and Phil Vassar. She has also played and written with Steve Azar and jammed with Paul Simon, even though at the time she really did not know who he was. Jacqueline was asked to do vocals on a safety cd done by Delta State University titled "Snappy the Safety Turtle".

Jacqueline was honored to be the youngest blues artist casted by Sharon McConnell to be in bronze. Jacqueline has said, a quote by Bob Marley, "Music will never turn its back on you", is one of the reasons she is so focused on writing, playing, and singing.

Weaned off of the Blues by her love for Rock and Roll, Jacqueline's lyrics speak of things she has experienced in her own life. "Window" is a song she wrote at age nine, which was featured in a Lonelygirl15 youtube episode "House Arrest". "If I Could Fly" was used in the movie "Remember the Daze" (The Beautiful Ordinary) in 2008.

In 2008, Jacqueline recorded at Ardent Studios with producer Pete Matthews. During this time, she was also contacted by the Gene Simmons Family Jewels Show to appear in an episode with Nick Simmons. This show will aired in June 2009.

Jacqueline Nassar is known to mesmerize an audience with her performances whether they are acoustic or with her band. So if given the chance don't miss a performance.

Lyrics

Hello Mother

Written By: Jacqueline Nassar

Hello Mother can I take you by the hand
to show you what I've done
and I hope you understand
I'm not the person that I use to be
Can't you see what's taking over me

Everything is in reverse all I see is time
Time that's passing me by
Will I ever see the lies
This is my last confession
I can't breathe the air
I can't feel the wind
rushing hard against my skin
I can't live with what I did

Hello Mother can I take you by the hand
to show you what I've done
and I hope you understand
I'm not the person that I use to be
Can't you see what's taking over me
yeah.

Everything is in reverse all I see is time
Time that's passing me by
Will I ever see the lies
This is my last confession
I can't breathe the air
I can't feel the wind
rushing hard against my skin
I can't live with what I did

You saw the fear in my eyes
You were scared and so was I
Will I be this way forever
Until the day that I die
I regret all the things I did
I want to be alive

In reverse all I see is time
Time that's passing me by
Will I ever see the lies?
I can't breathe air
I can't feel the wind
rushing hard against my skin
I can't live with what I did

I can't live with what I did
This is my last confession
This is my last confession
This is my last confession

Never Said a Word

Never Said a Word

To ever fall in love with you
To ever fall in love with you
yeah yeah

I couldn't scream you took advantage of me
you poisoned my heart and mind for eternity
I only cried my heart pounding away
thinking I could live my life a better way

Drowning in my tears my soul was filled with fears
Knowing I should find a way to get out of here
I couldn't leave I wanted to go so bad
but this voice inside of me told me not to leave

You never said a word (I'm sorry I caused you pain)
I've never been so hurt (I am full of shame) you and I both knew
that my heart refused to ever fall in love with you
yeah yeah yeah oh oh

I couldn't scream you took advantage of me
you poisoned my heart for eternity
I only tried I had nothing to say
Cause deep down I knew you would never change
Drowning in my tears my soul was filled with fear
Knowing I should find a way to get out of here
I couldn't leave I wanted to go so bad
but your voice inside of me told me not to leave

You never said a word (I'm sorry I caused you pain)
I've never been so hurt (I am full of shame) you and I both knew
that my heart refused(That my heart refused) to ever fall in love with you
mmm...
yeah

Tears drops falling from the sky can't stop myself from crying
I run but I know I can't hide from all the pain behind me
Rain drops falling from your eyes I know that I was lying
I regret all the things I did please baby please stop crying
because I miss you
You never said a word I'm sorry I caused you pain
I've never been so hurt
You and I both knew that my heart refused
to ever fall in love with you you you you
never said a word sorry I caused you pain
and I've never been so hurt
cause you and I both knew that my heart refused
to ever fall in love with you
to ever fall in love with you
to ever fall in love with you

Window

Written By: Jacqueline Nassar


I look outside my window
and All I see is shadows
Shadows of people who need love
I see an old man sleeping on a bench
he called to me begging for 50 cents

Well it's a shame that people live through so much pain yeah
I'm not gonna let the pain hit me today
When you feel down I'll be around
to pick you up off the ground
If you need a friend I'll be around yeah eah

I'm walking down down the street
seeing people I'll never meet
I don't why people try to be someone they're really not
Well it's a shame that people live through so much pain yeah eah
Well I'm not gonna let the pain hit me today
When you feel down I'll be around
to pick you up off the ground
If you need a friend I'll be around

Ohh Ohh yeah eah La da da da dom
I'll be around

When you feel down I'll be around
To pick you up off the ground
If you need a friend I'll be around
If you need a friend I'll be around
If you need me I'll be around

Let You Go

Written By: Jacqueline Nassar

Yeah Yeah Yeah
I have a tear dropping from eye
when I said goodbye to you
I sit in my bed looking out the window
thinking about what we use to do
I don't know what came over me
when I let you go
I have this big wound inside my heart
that no one will ever know

I was so stupid (stupid)
to let you go
what was I thinkin' thinkin'
no one will ever know
why I let you go go go (4 times)
why I let you

I know I cause you a world of pain
when I said goodbye
I miss the nights when we held each other
watching the sun rise
All I can do is daydream about how we use to be
When I think of day I said goodbye
I start to believe

I was so stupid stupid
to let you go
what was I thinkin' thinkin'
no one will ever know
why I let you go go go (2 times)
why I let you go go go go, go, go, go, go

I was just trying' to grow in your heart
From keeping it tearing apart
from keeping it tearing apart

I was just trying' to grow in your heart
From keeping it tearing apart
from keeping it tearing apart

I was so stupid stupid
to let you go
what was I thinkin' thinkin'
no one will ever know

Well, I was so stupid stupid
to let you go
what was i thinkin' thinkin'
no one will ever know

why I let you go go go ( 4 times)
why I let you go
