Biography

Singer/songwriter, and also the frontman for the alternative funk groove band "ZYMOTIC FLOW", Filipino born Jon Zamora spent most of his teenage life growing up in Singapore. He then moved to the United States at age 19 where he finally learnt how to play the guitar. "There was nothing to do when I first moved to New Jersey. The only friend I had was my uncle's guitar". Self-thought with a right-handed guitar, him being a lefty was hard to get use to. "I couldn't re-string the guitar backwards cause it was not my guitar. I couldn't afford one at that time so I stuck it out. Sneaking it out from under my uncle's bed when he went to work, I would pluck away. It took me quite some time in getting use to it, but I was determined. Music is a big part of my life. It's so beautiful when you could express your emotions through harmony and melody".
Asides from his band Zymotic Flow, whom continues to rock the East Coast scene, Jon Zamora finds time to build his solo project called...Zamora You Want, Zamora You Get. Jon Zamora gives you a different side of him with the company of his acoustic guitar. Enjoy the meaningful simplicity of "ZAMORA".

Lyrics

END OF THE ROAD

Written By: JON JON ZAMORA

1st Verse
Settle down, pour me a drink
In a town that don't think
Another dies, but the sun still shines
I'm still alive, I guess I'm feeling fine

Chorus:
I'm tired of fighting in the rain
Stained with blood, soaked in pain
My body starts to sweat in the cold
I'm runnig out of breath
It's almost the end of the road

2nd Verse
Don't try to hide away your fear
I can see it in your eyes crystal clear
I watch your every move, do you pray
I know, I am sometimes rude, go away..

Chorus

YOU DON’T KNOW ANYTHING

Written By: JON ZAMORA

What was I suppose to do
It could have been different, if I only knew
Searching the skies, for miles and miles
Show me a sign, help ease my mind..yeh

Could it be that simple, would it be so hard
What sould I believe in when we're dreams apart
As god as my witness, a puppet in his show
Tied to the strings..

You don't know....anything
You don't know....anything

There's nothing more, nothing less
So tell me to whom I may confess
No soul is clean

I've reached out, you've pulled back
Still riding down a twisted track
The grass was almost green

You don't know....anything
You don't know....anything

I remember life was so simple back then
Everythings changed where did it go, I don't know when
Now I realize what I should have done but it's to late
Years have gone, now move along, why didn't we communicate

You don't know....anything
You don't know............

QUESTIONS

Written By: Lyrics:JON ZAMORA-Music: OSCAR ARAYA

Shall I proceed, in your time of need
And wipe off the sorrow, that makes you bleed
Its gonna take time, don't let it alter you mind
Cause healing will come, and repolish your pride
And make it all shiny again

I don't want to be the one to answer the questions
This is how all this begins
From the sky to the ocean
Sucked in and blown by the wind
Now it's scattered on the ground
With nothing left to hide
Not but a whispering sound, deep inside

I don't want to be the one to answer the questions
Cause I'll lie
Each and everytime
I don't want to be the one to answer the questions
Not now, not then, the end

ERASE

Written By: Lyrics:JON ZAMORA-Muisc:Pettit & Bozzuffi

Now tell me if you think this is a lie
If I sold my soul never will I die
And have everything you wanted in this life
But live in darkness and never see the light
My fuse is short with quickness I explode
Catch it on film watch me go off in slow mo
I need a pump, my hearts skipping a beat
Now keep it cool, I'm melting in the heat

(chorus)
And I'm chasing you all around
Your going to fast, you better slow down
oh no I'm losing my ground
But your still running away
There are things I cannot erase
A picture of life, a sad happy face
Always takes me back to the place
and your still running away

Why do I live if I was only meant to die
I am deceived when I believe that is a lie
So what's the truth, no one really cares
A prostitute indeed a friend when no one is there
So here's the news, someone's starting a war
Screaming the blues as he jumps off the tenth floor
There's no excuse, ain't happening no more..ain't happening no more

SYMPTOMS

Written By: Lyrics:JON ZAMORA-Music Pettit & bozzuffi

I walk the streets like it was my own
In this sticky heat known through what I've shown
The creatures beneath, they roam the ground
I sink my teeth, quietly as it sounds
I didn't expect to be in a place
Without mercy, oh no I won't forget your face
We have to live the way society says
Around here you can't just take a guess
(chorus)
I won't let you die
Oh no not alone
I won't let you die
I'll make sure you'll find your way home
I won't let you die
Cause your my brother
I won't let you die
Not one way or the other
I won't let you die
oh no not alone
I won't let you die
I'll make sure you find your way home

Its hard to get out, but easy to get in
Forgive me lord for many times I've sinned
A lot of regrets deep down with in
When it's finally over, It's just starting to begin
Don't walk in my shoes or idolize my views
It's not the safest way, take the time to choose
Cause not everyone makes it, a lot have died
Jump off that ride, it's suicide
Everywhere I go there is murder
why can't we just leave it alone
It's time to put things back in order
Or forever stuck in this zone

UNTIL I FOUND YOU

Written By: JON ZAMORA

I use to tell many lies, allabies
Can't look straight into thier eyes
Until I met you

I never cared about anything, except for spring
I never really cared about myself
Until I met you

You pulled me out of the fire before I burned....to the ground
Your the reason why I made this turn....around
You helped me open my eyes and made me see
How wonderful our lives can be
It's you..you..hoo
You..hoo..hoo

I use to go out every night, look for a fight
I never really cared what was wrong or right
Until I met you

I never knew how to love, or whom to trust
I never really liked catching the bus
Until I met you

You pulled me out of the fire before I burned....to the ground
Your the reason why I made this turn....around
You helped me open my eyes and made me see
How wonderful our lives can be
It's you..you..hoo
You..hoo..hoo

GO WRONG

Written By: JON ZAMORA

You wrote goodbye, and said that you were sorry
As tears rolled down from my eyes, you left without a story
What was I suppose to think
From a note signed in red ink
I thought I gave my best for you
Where did I go wrong

Where did I go wrong

The roads that followed has been rough
Still searching for an answer
So many times I wanted to give up
The more it made me wonder
Why was I feeling this way
I wish I knew, you know, you didn't have to run away
I thought I gave my best for you
Where did I go wrong

Where did I go wrong
As far as I know, there ain't nothing I did wrong
Where did I go wrong

There was no reason you left without a trace
Not an explanation was a slap on my face
Not even a clue
I thought I did my best for you
Well are you dead are you still alive
What made you leave in a blink of an eye
Was it you or me, who do I blame
Since you've been gone nothings been the same

Where did I go wrong

MOTHER

Written By: JON JON ZAMORA

I know I've caused alot of heartaches and pain
You've cried to many times over and over again
Never did I mean to hurt you even after all I've done
You could have pulled the trigger
But instead you unloaded the gun
There was a time I thought I was better of dead
No it ain't because of anything you said
You were actually the one that stopped me from going there
You never failed to show how much you cared

I give you my life that you saved
If it takes away the pain
I will do anything for you
Cause I know you'll do the same
I'm working on to making things better
To make up for the past
And I know I can never repay what you've given me
But I'll do my best....Mother

There was a time I remember you were on the verge of letting go
But you held me tighter, you were stronger then I know
Because of this I've become who you are and I'm proud of who I am
You know you'll always be my most valuable gem

I give you my life that you saved
If it takes away the pain
I will do anything for you
Cause I know you'll do the same
I'm working on to making things better
To make up for the past
And I know I can never repay what you've given me
But I'll do my best....Mother

ALONE

Written By: JON ZAMORA & OSCAR ARAYA

What a feeling, when I wake
Reverse healing, before its to late
It's been days, since I ate
Don't remember, lost some weight

Be gone, away, alone
Besides, I'm out here on my own
Aches and pain visits me once again
From my head to my toes, don't you know

Your laughing, behind my back
Well it's okay now cause I just kicked you off my track
Your voices slowly fades away
I hate to leave, but I'm not begging to stay

Below, it burns with snow
Peelin my skin, no time to watch you grow
Aches and pain, covers me from head to toe
Don't you know, don't you know, now you know

Wait a minute, It's getting clear
For awhile then disappears
Try to catch it if you can
I find myself tightly clenching my hands
Searching for answers, I've already found
Inside my head, spinning round and round

MONEY( acoustic version)

Written By: JON ZAMORA

The sun is up got to get up it's time to go
Still lying down without a sound it's late I know
I got to rise open my eyes rain or snow
No other choice I got to work I got to go

You know, this job doesn't really pay that much
I got to hustle on the side on my own
Still not enough it's pretty rough what do I do
Your asking me I'm asking you I have no clue

(chorus)
Cause everything is money, money changes everything
It's all about the money, drives you to do anything

I tried many things I could not get ahead
I sometimes wonder what its like to be dead
No no no no I don't really wanna die
I'm just like you learning how to survive

Goodnight, flick off the light so I can rest
To wake again to the same old fucking mess
Action, I need to get some of that

HALFWAY TO HARRISBURG

Written By: Lyrics:JON ZAMORA-Music: Pettit & Bozzuffi

What's going on, what's going down
It's not that bad, I'll stick around
For quite sometime, I've been out there
I'm in a bind, I do not care
Oh what a lie, There's no surprise
It's all an act, behind those eyes
Bad habits glow, I feel the pain
I just don't, wipe off that stain

What's going down, what's going on
Oh you've been gone for way to long
All those years, the crying tears
I missed the past, that never last
Forever gone, carved into stone
Off and on the anger grows
I've held it back oh much to long

(chorus)
And your lying again..And I just don't understand

And the banging in my head won't stop
so I guess I got to let it roll
Melting away drop after drop
As I loose the moment I stole
