Biography

I am the oldest son in a family of ten children and I was raised in a loving, moderately strict household. I had an average, normal childhood. I grew up listening to REO Speedwagon and Journey and loving to sing but too afraid to be heard. Attending high school in Texas was the biggest waste of time until I joined the show choir, Tribe. While in Texas I also embraced country music. After high school I went straight to college in Missouri. I graduated from the Kansas City Art Institute in 1996 with my Bachelors of Fine Art in Painting.

Dissatisfied with my life after graduation, I went to South Korea for three years to teach English. I met my wife, married and came back in 2000. I have recently written and recorded the two tracks posted in the Audio section above. I continue to write and I look forward to recording again soon.

Thanks for listening!

Lyrics

Yuletide

Written By: John G. Franklin

Today a new sun rises, Yuletide is near
All hearts are full of joyfulness, as loved ones join us here
The happiness and laughter, carries far above
We celebrate together, the season’s undying love

We'll carry this day with us, the day itself will pass
In our thoughts and prayers, these sentiments will last
Our memories will linger, tied to those we love
Keeping us together, guarded from above

Here in abundance, gifted joyously
It’s all around us, friends and family
The feeling connects us, husbands and wives
It guides and protects us, all through our lives

Now and tomorrow, and every day that dawns
Fond memories will lead us back, to Yuletides at home
The good times we had there and better times to come
Let's share them together, and smile as they're sung

This we can share with, everyone we meet
And we can give it to, strangers on the street
Love that begins in, each of our hearts
And stays forever, though we're far apart

Here in abundance, gifted joyously
It’s all around us, friends and family
The feeling connects us, husbands and wives
It guides and protects us, all through our lives

A love that protects us, all through our lives

A Woman Unequaled

Written By: John G. Franklin

There's a woman that I know
Warm-hearted, sassy and beautiful
To whom I try always to show
My soul uncovered
How much I love her

SohnHwa baby, listen close
We were destined to be together years ago
With you the universe is full of hope
But without you
I am nothing

You are a woman unequaled
The one I live my life for
My best friend and my lover
No one could ever want more
Baby we'll be together
As long as the stars shine above
I hope you'll always remember
That you're my life and my love

Oh baby, don't you know
You're more to me than everything this world can show
I adore you a hundred times more than before
Every time we kiss
Life's in your lips

SohnHwa darlin', my sweet angel
You're heaven and peace no one can measure
The most sought after and valued treasure
I will love you
Always forever

You are a woman unequaled
The one I'd give my life for
My best friend and my lover
No one could ever want more
Baby we'll be together
As long as the stars shine above
I hope you'll always remember
That you're my life and my love

Baby always remember, that you're my life and my love
