First Attempt At Songwriting

This is an introduction of how I became involved in songwriting.

This song that I wrote is actually not part of Timeless Myths at all. Rather, one of the projects I was involved in a tiny recording studio.

As of now, this is my first and only attempt at songwriting. The song was written and produced for an album, called United, a project that lasted for 6 months, between September 2002 and March 2003.

The CD were recorded in a tiny studio at Diamond Valley Community Care, under our supervisor, James Holland. There are 8 title tracks in this album.

As our producer, James Holland have formal experience in the music industry. He was former lead vocalist of Iron and Clay, but was more recently involved in the group New Millennium Gospel (NMG). You will find James Hollands' official website at James Hollands & NMG Crew. James also has a MySpace page, where you can hear his latest song.

I wrote the song, You Changed My Life, which is about friendship.

Since I don't know how to play any musical instrument nor have any talent in singing, James Hollands provided the music/tunes and (fortunately) sang for the our recording.

You Changed My Life

Lyrics by Jimmy Joe & music by James Hollands.

Dedication to Sara, a special friend from Madrid.


We were both young and shy,
when we shared our first thoughts.
We lived half a world away,
but the letters we shared
just made the miles fall away.

Just when I thought
I had fallen in a deep hole,
your words help me see the light.

You changed my life
and the world stood still for a while.
You changed my life
in such a short space in time.
You changed my life,
we'll be friends till the end of time.
So do you understand
why I really miss your smile?

Your letters help me
walk through the darkest night.
You gave me direction
just when I thought I was going to lose my mind.

Just when I thought
I had fallen in a deep hole,
your words had brought me to the light.

You changed my life
and the world stood still for a while.
You changed my life
in such a short space in time.
You changed my life,
we'll be friends till the end of time.
So do you understand
why I really miss your smile?

I wanna show you what you mean to me.
So you'll understand why I really, really miss your smile.

I really miss your smile.

You changed my life
and the world stood still for a while.
You changed my life
in such a short space in time.
You changed my life,
we'll be friends till the end of time.
So do you understand
why I really miss your smile?
