about

Jake Gray Knoxville, Tennessee

Singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist.

My goal is telling songs with music. I use a variety of styles influenced by some of the great musical storytellers.

There is another "Jerry Gray" that apparently has had some success with big band music. I am not him so... My family calls me Jake. Now you can too.

Track Name: Stone
Stone
Walked in the front door and I
Took a look at your note
One thing is perfectly clear now
The man is a stone, yeah
Though the words were written clearly they
show your failure to see
You think I’m being dishonest and
Don’t believe me, well

What have you got to show for,
You jumping to conclusions
Tell me why you’ve avoided the truth,
you avoided the truth well
All this angry and confusion
Caused by adversity
Tell me what did you think you were going to lose

Couldn’t see my point of view and I
Could tell he was all along because
When it comes to communication well
The man is a stone, yeah
And it was partly my fault, you see
I put him to the test, I said
“Take a good look at yourself now,
forget all the rest”, because

What have you got to show for,
You jumping to conclusions
Tell me why you’ve avoided the truth,
you avoided the truth well
All this angry and confusion
Caused by adversity
Tell me what did you think you were going to lose

Track Name: Change
Hey, why so sad
Have you lost everything, you thought you should have?
Hey, I thought you knew,
it never belonged, to me or you

Don't you know God's got a plan?
Though you may not understand.
Don't you know He'll see you through?
God's got His eye, set on you.

This may be a test.
This may be your trial, show Him your best
This life is a gift, remember to give back
what first was His

Don't you know God's got a plan?
Though you may not understand.
Don't you know He'll see you through?
God's got His eye, set on you.

I thought you should know
God wants you to grow
Its time you've begun
God's will be done

This, might cause some pain
but it could be a good time, for you to change
Take, a good look within
I think you will find, where to begin

Don't you know God's got a plan?
Though you may not understand.
Don't you know He'll see you through?
God's got His eye, set on you.

Hey, I said hey, this could be a good time, for you to change
Hey, I said hey, this could be a good time, for you to change
Hey, I said hey, this could be a good time, for you to change
Hey, I said hey, this could be a good time, for you to change
Track Name: I Found Love
I never thought that I would find
a perfect thing in my lifetime then you...
(it was you).
I always thought that I would be
all alone and lonely then you...
(it was you)
When I was about to fall, my broken heart against the wall then you...
(it was you)
This is what I've waited for
tender love opened the door it's you...
(it is you)

And I found love (I found love)
in my lifetime.
And I found love (I found love)
you're my lifeline
And I found love (I found love)
in my lifetime
And I found love (I found love)
you're my lifeline.

Never thought that I could be
so complete and happy with you... (thanks to you)
This moment is just right for me
standing with my family and you... (here with you)
This is what I've waited for
now my life means so much more with you... (now with you)
Can't believe how I've been blessed
tender love now I confess for you... (confess for you)

And I found love (I found love)
in my lifetime.
And I found love (I found love)
you're my lifeline
And I found love (I found love)
in my lifetime
And I found love (I found love)
you're my lifeline.
Track Name: Yea God!
God might not be in your G.I. Joe,
or in your computer game
He may not hang out in Barbie's Mansion,
but He loves you just the same.

Yea God! Yea God! Yea God!

When God wanted someone,
to put the Devil on the run.
Didn't send us the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers
He sent his only Son.

Yea God! Yea God! Yea God!

God blessed our family this year,
we had presents beneath the tree.
But after we celebrate,
who really sets us free.

Yea God! Yea God! Yea God!

When God wanted someone,
to put the Devil on the run.
Didn't send us the Pokemon
He sent his only Son.

Yea God! Yea God! Yea God!
