BandRockClassic Rock

One To Midnight introduces us to music with a modern flavor but with the warmth and sound reminiscent of the hits from the 70’s and 80’s. The classic rock feel is due not only to the sound and style of John Jed’s vocals but also the bands presence and great performance on the album.

Lyrics

How I feel (the gift)

Written By: John Jed

At night time, she whispers
How long have you been dreaming?
No sorrow, tomorrow
I’ll wash away all memories

And then I wonder why
You came into my life
And thought my heart to see
Passion, truth and destiny

So now let’s stop complaining
No time for self-explaining
Cause pain and tears are fading

Let me show you how I feel
I’ve made the change this time
I told you it was real
Your words have changed my mind.
I’ll show you how I feel
I’ve made the change this time
I told you, now I’ll show you
Your words have changed my mind

By daytime, I’m shouting
How great life is cause I found me
I’m breathing, believing
You fill my soul with harmony

No longer wonder why
You came into my life
My heart can only see
Passion, truth and destiny

So now let’s stop complaining
No time for self-explaining
Cause pain and tears are fading

Let me show you how I feel
I’ve made the change this time
I told you it was real
Your words have changed my mind.
I’ll show you how I feel
I’ve made the change this time
I told you, now I’ll show you
Your words have changed my...

After a lifetime of fighting
For values deep inside of me
Fulfilling and thrilling
A change as pure as life can be...

Let me show you how I feel
I’ve made the change this time
I told you it was real
Your words have changed my mind.
I’ll show you how I feel
I’ve made the change this time
I told you, now I’ll show you
Your words have changed my “life”

Taxi

Written By: John Jed

Hey listen…
Main streets side streets, working on sunday
Speeding down the avenue…
Her hair high, skirts high, working with heals high
Always get a look at you
Through cross ways, walk ways, working on a new day
You never se her feeling blue
Her blue eyes and bright smile
Makes you feel you’re paralyzed
Nothing more that you can do…

In the back seat…she’s living in a taxi.
But she’ll never be the lonely one…

Through rainy streets, snowy streets
No panic in the traffic
Always something good to say
Through good times, bad times
Get you to confess your crimes
Throwing all the pain away
You’re up late with no date
Going home to masturbate
She’ll be the perfect fantasy
If you stare be aware
She makes her money with her fare
And brags about her honesty

In the back seat, yea she’s living to the back beat…
In the back seat, she’s living in a taxi…
She’ll never be the lonely one…

She’s feeling kinda grey her time has come to pray

Long rides, short rides
Take you to the other side
As long as you’re ready to pay
But don’t push, don’t pressure
You’ll give her great pleasure
She’ll leave you in a crowded street
So if you get into a cab
See her like you never had
Don’t try to get on to her seat
Watch her mouth, shut your mouth
Take it in, enjoy the ride
She’ll take you to your wildest dreams!!
In the back seat, yea she’s living to the back beat…
In the back seat, she’s living in a taxi…
She’ll never be the lonely one…

Rage

Written By: John Jed

Well when you pass me in the line,
Or cut me off in the traffic that day
Or when you cheat you cross the line,
And you piss me off beyond words can say
We may believe in different gods
And have separate views on religious ways
Well, you may be black, I may be white
But just look at the rich who bitch on where the poor play
I could kill you, could hurt you, could blow you away
You could bust me up or stab me in the back
Cause it seems to be the way
Or I could kiss you and hold you and slowly walk away
You could shake my hand or pat me on the back
But you’d have to lead the way yea yea…
You’ve taken my job away,
And Stoled my wife on the very same day
You took pride in what you said
And you got shot down from the very first line
World leaders preach their ways
Yet they feed their egos with their people’s blood
Well you may have been used
Or been abused but that’s no excuse for the child you’ve bruised
I could kill you, could hurt you, could blow you away
You could bust me up or stab me in the back
Cause it seems to be the way
Or I could kiss you and hold you and slowly walk away
You could shake my hand or pat me on the back
But you’d have to lead the way yea yea…
Let your guard down, put your pride away
Let your guard down, put your pride away
Let your guard down, put your pride away,
your pride away and be brave!
I could kill you, could hurt you, could blow you away
You could bust me up or stab me in the back
Cause it seems to be the way
Or I could kiss you and hold you and slowly walk away
You could shake my hand or pat me on the back
But you’d have to lead the way yea yea…

Live Like Angels

Written By: John Jed

A little more time
Is all she needed
To set the rules and settle down
He took her for granted
Had her defeated
Thought he had it won but she would break him down
They have to learn each others ways,
for the night to get away.
Live like angels
Summertime lovers
Playing by the brook, you’ll find your way somehow
On a beach by the ocean
Or stuck in the city
Your heart beats steady, cause love is blind.
A little less time
Is what they’re faced with
Life has made it so, the years have past
Well, even now older
They’re not condemned
This chapter is better…there love is still young!
They have to learn each others ways,
for the night to get away.
Live like angels
Summertime lovers
Playing by the brook, you’ll find your way somehow
On a beach by the ocean
Or stuck in the city
Your heart beats steady, cause love is blind.
They have to learn each others ways,
for the night to get away.
Live like angels
Summertime lovers
Playing by the brook, you’ll find your way somehow
On a beach by the ocean
Or stuck in the city
Your heart beats steady, cause love is blind.
Live like angels
Summertime lovers
Playing by the brook, you’ll find your way somehow
On a beach by the ocean
Or stuck in the city
Your heart beats steady, cause love is blind.

Stranger

Written By: John Jed

It feels like you’re a stranger,
but I’ve known you all my life
Could it be that you have changed,
could it be that you’re all right?
The clouds have moved and left you shinning bright
You the stars baby, I 'm the knight!
You’re a stranger, my lover, my sister and my friend
I was a stranger, your lover, cavalier till the end
You and I were walking through the foggy streets that night
You were cold baby, I was the ice
As I wonder how I’ll dry those tears in your eyes
I was blinded, by your pain
And though I thought we‘d washed our troubles away
I was hypnotized, by your game....
You’re a stranger, my lover, my sister and my friend
I was a stranger, your lover, cavalier till the end
Well, I know that you are frightened,
but you’re not alone tonight
So take cover, I’ll take over the fight
I’ll be the fire in your flare! Yea!
You’re a stranger, my lover, my sister and my friend
I was a stranger, your lover, cavalier till the end
I feel all your shame, I'll heal all your pain,
we are one of the same!
I feel all your shame, I'll heal all your pain,
we are one of the same!
I was a stranger, your lover, your soldier till the end.

Nights go on Living

Written By: John Jed

As I look to the city streets through the glass where I stand
The glass of the record store, were I’ll meet with my fans
And the songs, keep on playing
Now I walk on the side walk and see a man with great pain
The pain from the needle, he just stuck in his veins
And the lights are flashing
To the beat of the subway train
Cause the days; yea the days are slowly dying
And the nights, yea the nights go on living
I hear the voice of children talking; I hear them speaking the truth
The truth about crazy places, they will live in their youth
And their words, are praying
For the world, for the world they play in
Cause the days; yea the days are slowly dying
And the nights, yea the nights go on living
Cause the days; yea the days are slowly dying
And the nights, yea the nights go on living
Well, as I and the drums and the song now walk I can see a man with pain
I can see a man with pain…
Stuck in the light of the subway I hear children speaking the truth
They will live their words for the world; they will live their words for the world!
Cause the days; yea the days are slowly dying
And the nights, yea the nights go on living
Cause the days; yea the days are slowly dying
And the nights, yea the nights go on living

She Runs

Written By: John Jed

We see each other every night,
Explore our fantasies
We share our recipes for life,
Creating memories
Tonight we are together
Tomorrow I don’t know
Let’s live this night forever
Making it up as we go
She runs, she laughs, and she dances
She cries and sings and senses
She’s made mistakes most of her life
I try hard to romance her
While waiting for her answer
On if she wants to share my life
We could say see ya hold on to
Our right to be alone
Cause time has taken us right through
Our course with destiny
We could get caught red handed
In the ways of yesterday
When nights and bodies bonded
Let our spirits break away

She runs, she laughs, and she dances
She cries and sings and senses
She’s made mistakes most of her life
I try hard to romance her
While waiting for her answer
On if she wants to share my life

Show me the Way

Written By: John Jed

Outside in the cool wind, you and I and the earth stands still
Love shows when I look at you, wonder where I’d be without you
As I look into your eyes, can’t believe the things we’ve faced
Heard you cries, and wiped your tears away…
Show me the way…
We’ll make it through the night
Cause I’ll hold you in my arms till the break of day
Till the break of day
The sky is clear we can see so far and hear the waves remind us who we are
Made a wish upon a falling star cause you and I where made to be together
Time sends you home at night; the hour has come to say I’ll see you
This will never be goodbye because I intend to be forever near you
Show me the way…
We’ll make it through the night
Cause I’ll hold you in my arms till the break of day
Till the break of day
As I look into your eyes, can’t believe the things we’ve faced
Heard your cries, and wiped your tears away…hey!
Show me the way…
We’ll make it through the night
Cause I’ll hold you in my arms till the break of day
Till the break of day, so wont you

Show me the way…
We’ll make it through the night
Cause I’ll hold you in my arms till the break of day
Till the break of day, till the break of day…
Show me the way

Future Starts Now

Written By: John Jed

The future starts now
The past ended yesterday
Because the memories we’ve created have paved the way
For our better days, better days, better days …
Will heal the wounds of time
Today we stand tall; our lives have taken a turn in time
As the present runs ahead in our minds
From rags to riches, from riches to rags sometimes
Our true friends have washed a shore from the storm
Together we stand, divided we fall
As we push ourselves, never looking behind
The future starts now
The past ended yesterday
Because the memories we’ve created have paved the way
For our better days, better days, better days …
Will heal the wounds of time

Tomorrow comes fast; next years just a blink away
Let’s live everyday as if it were our last
The lesson to learn, is hidden not far away
Let your barriers fall, and I promise you’ll find
A secret so great, the only words you’ll say
Is thanks Heaven, for this thing called “time”.
The future starts now
The past ended yesterday
Because the memories we’ve created have paved the way
For our better days, better days, better days …
Will heal the wounds of time
A secret so great, the only words you’ll say
Is thanks Heaven, for this thing called “time”

The future starts now
The past ended yesterday
Because the memories we’ve created have paved the way
For our better days, better days, better days …
Will heal the wounds of time

Round and Around

Written By: John Jed

Hell when you wake up, late at night
Hold you thoughts, hold them tight
It freaks you out when you find out
It’s turned in to fact again
You need hand to be in command
Of your moods and attitudes
What comes around goes around
That’s the way it all began
Round & around, round and around
Round and around, it always comes your way again
Round & around, round and around
Round and around, the law that makes and shapes a man
Well, as you fight, it feels right
Don’t hold back when throwing cracks
Swearing here and there
Your opponent feels no pain
She walks away, stays away
Don’t seem to care sleeping over there
She beautiful you’re miserable
Guess who’s playing the same game
Round & around, round and around
Round and around, it always comes your way again
Round & around, round and around
Round and around, the law that makes and shapes a man

Like needles of a watch, telling time
Let’s take a trip, look behind
At stories told, we all know
Our fathers walked through miles of snow
Though times have changed, they are the same
We are marching to the tune of a different name
Pressure then or pressure now
The weak will parish and strong remain
Round & around, round and around
Round and around, it always comes your way again
Round & around, round and around
Round and around, the law that makes and shapes a man
