Songbird by Janice Zamb featuring Steve Jones. A dedication to our songbird, Melani Cholie. It’s an unusual song as there’s no vocal track. It’s a beautiful instrumental by Steve Jones that contains a poem I wrote for her, that now awaits its songstress. So, imagine Melani’s voice giving the verses a musical life. I’ve had the immense honor of having this talented artist create melodies and sing my lyrics to four songs, along with Danijela Jovic providing the music, becoming the Trinity sisters. The only thing greater than Melani’s immense talent is her loving heart. I hope you enjoy our tribute to this lovely lady, a treasured friend and sister of my heart.

ON THE THRESHOLD In a golden storm of fluttering leaves succumbing to the winds of time Like a smile on the lips of sorrow the beauty autumn left behind Life changes like the seasons and before you can turn around Your feet are on the threshold to the other side of dawn The reflection in my mirror is a woman unrecognized Life written on her face lined with shadows of time She’s older than the girl I know but her eyes are full of stars With summer in her soul and love Inside her heart Growing old is like an ocean waiting for the tide Memories carried out to sea the past fading over time Rolling waves of destiny wash hope upon the shore Life has an ebb and flow of holding on and letting go Each tick of the clock is golden when measured with a slotted spoon I’ll be the blooming rose in winter the last phase of the moon I’ll be the violet sky at twilight the final verse of a song I’ll keep dancing ‘til my card is full or until I can’t go on Our lives so like a butterfly’s born in a safe cocoon Evolving over time until the grand finale looms When fragile wings unfurl revealing the beauty held inside To fly off like a spirit freed to the other side of light.

LIKE A RAINBOW - Giulietta Juliet Valenti & Janice Zamb @riginal. This song about true friendship is dedicated to a very special friend who has been in our thoughts. My thanks to Giulietta for giving my words such a beautiful musical life. She is my rainbow. Thank you for listening. LIKE A RAINBOW Lyrics by Janice Zamb ©2017 When there’s an empty space where your heart used to be And darkness finds its way through the crack in your soul When alone in starless midnight Don’t get lost in the gloom Just reach out to me And I’ll be there for you ---------- CHORUS ---------- Like a rainbow Shining in your heart Like a rainbow in the colors of love Like a rainbow inside your heart I’ll be your rainbow When your world falls apart And it’s winter everyday When your tears flow like rain And the pain won’t go away When despair is in your heart And you don’t know what to do No matter where you are I’ll be there for you ---------- CHORUS ---------- Like a rainbow Shining in your heart Like a rainbow in the colors of love Like a rainbow inside your heart I’ll be your rainbow You can’t see the stars when the sun is in your eyes You can’t see the moon when clouds obscure your view They may be out of sight But they’re shining down on you And like their hidden light I’ll be there for you ---------- CHORUS ---------- Like a rainbow Shining in your heart Like a rainbow in the colors of love Like a rainbow inside your heart Like a rain, rain, rain…bow I’ll be your rainbow

A DROP OF KINDNESS - Giulietta GV & Janice Zamb © original song It gives me enormous pleasure to share this collaboration with Giulietta, the sister of my heart. When she asked me to write a song with her, it was easy to come up with lyrics. All I had to do was think of Giulietta and her kind heart. Her wonderful vocals and music give this song a life beyond words. She’s pretty good at making videos too. We hope you enjoy our song. Thank you for listening. A Drop of Kindness VERSE 1 Like ripples from a stone cast upon a stream Expanding in a circle beyond what we can see All we need Is a drop of kindness for the world to sing a joyous song for peace in perfect harmony CHORUS A drop of kindness in a cup of love A sweet recipe for the world to share A drop of kindness in a cup of love is all we need to live in harmony A drop of kindness A drop of kindness VERSE 2 It only takes a smile to brighten someone’s day Or see the colors of a rainbow to make sorrow fade away A drop of kindness is all we need to fill an empty heart with the light of love brighter than the stars BRIDGE Una goccia di bontà in una coppa d’amore per condividere un dolce sapore coi fratelli nel mondo una goccia di bontà in una coppa d’amore è ciò che tutti han bisogno per vivere in armonia nel mondo CHORUS A drop of kindness in a cup of love A sweet recipe for the world to share A drop of kindness in a cup of love is all we need to live in harmony A drop of kindness A drop of kindness Una goccia di bontà in una coppa d’amore ©Janice Zamb/Giulietta Juliet Valenti 2016

On Butterfly Wings by Mel Donovan & Janice Zamb with Stephen Jones The image Mel used for the cover of his video is what gave me the inspiration to write a poem. When I first saw this beautiful painting by Helena Rose, I thought of it as a metaphor about our own existence. And, just as I was satisfied with the text, Mel came along and asked me to write lyrics for a melody he’d written. As soon as I heard the music, I knew it was the soundtrack my poem was waiting for. Thanks to Mel for the lovely metamorphosis of poem to song. And a special thanks to my soul man, Stephen Jones, for adding his wonderful, smooth jazz guitar. I hope you enjoy our collaboration. Thanks for listening.

I was inspired to write these lyrics for Hilde after a virtual chat we had on Fanda about women in music and the current trend to dress provocatively and be ridiculously sexy to attract a male audience. The result is that oftentimes image becomes more important than the substance of the music. I shared my thoughts with Hilde who immediately honed in on this message and shared it with HG (who sees through the hype) and…Voila… it became a Schmitzruds’ song, filled with funky soul, substance and a brilliant satire on the music industry, especially for beautiful blonds like our Hilde. A huge thanks to them for turning my lyrics into an incredibly entertaining yet meaningful song. Hope you enjoy it. Thanks for listening.

Thanks so much for collaborating with me on this song, Dessy. Here’s hoping the world will find a way to live together in peace. Thanks for listening, Fanda friends. Love and peace DOWN WITH HATE Down with hate It’s got a bitter taste Resenting all you see Hating dogs and hating trees People drive you mad If they’re good or if they’re bad Like a weed inside your soul The flames of hate will grow Down with hate Down with hate It’s such a nasty trait Stop looking for a fight No matter who’s in sight What’s the point of living If you can’t be forgiving Anger dwelling in your head You might as well be dead --------------CHORUS-------------- Down with hate It’s got a bitter taste What’s it gonna take To lift the weight of hate Down with hate It’s got a bitter taste What’s it gonna take To lift the weight of hate Down with hate It’s got a bitter taste What’s it gonna take To lift the weight of hate ------------------------------------- Down with hate It’s such a nasty trait Its thorns make you bleed While implanting its seed When your hate turns to rage They’ll put you in a cage Hate will choke your heart And tear your life apart Down with hate Don’t hate for goodness sake It only causes pain Are you ready for a change Don’t heed the call for hate Blaming others for your fate Hate plays a wicked game Deep down we’re all the same -------------CHORUS------------------ Down with hate It’s got a bitter taste What’s it gonna take To lift the weight of hate Down with hate It’s got a bitter taste What’s it gonna take To lift the weight of hate Down with hate It’s got a bitter taste What’s it gonna take To lift the weight of hate ---------------------------------------- ©2016 by Janice Zamb

This song is based on a poem I wrote for my sister Judy’s birthday a few years ago and is dedicated to her. I shared it with Jay who offered his immense musical talents and voice to produce a wonderful song - and an awesome video - about one’s journey through life. And this collaboration was made even more special with the talents of Steve Jones on guitar and the synth accordion. I’m so very grateful to Jay and Steve for turning my lyrics into a fantastic piece of music for my sis. Thanks for listening. Peace and love The Wings of Time (Judy’s Song) Starting her journey with a joyous laugh A little girl faces an unknown path With fingertips touching the edges of time Unaware of imprints she’d leave behind As a young woman, she learns life’s a quest Anxiously waits to leave the nest Stars guide her passage on a sea of dreams Some true and others not what they seem ----------------------Chorus----------------------- The winds of change will always blow Sometimes fast and sometimes slow So, live for today and let your light shine Each day’s a feather in the wings of time ------------------------------------------------------- With the dawn of her life just ahead A thousand thoughts run through her head Trusting her heart to guide her fate Travelling the path she’s meant to take As years go by, they pick up speed She looks back when life was carefree Wondering where the time has gone As treasured memories linger on --------------------Chorus------------------------- The winds of change will always blow Sometimes fast and sometimes slow So, live for today and let your light shine Each day’s a feather in the wings of time The winds of change will always blow Sometimes fast and sometimes slow So, live for today and let your light shine Each day’s a feather in the wings of time ---------------------------------------------------------- ©2016 Janice Zamb

Through a Child’s Eyes by 4 friends at Fandalism. This song was inspired by the first photograph in Tommy’s video - the innocence of children who trust and love without judgment. I sent the poem to Tommy (my mentor and muse) who jumped on board to write music for our 5th collaboration (I’m so proud) and labored over this project with his heart and soul. And by adding the phenomenal vocals of my sista, Kathy Shortt (one of my idols), and the exquisite guitar and synthcello of Stephen Jones (the Lounge Master and my soul mate), he jettisoned this song to another stratosphere. I’m so very grateful to them all for turning my words into a musical masterpiece. Thanks for listening, friends. Through a Child’s Eyes If we could see the world through a child’s eyes Each gaze full of wonder Every moment a surprise No awareness of hate Trusting from the start Seeing life as it should be with love in our hearts… only love No difference in our skin in a child’s eyes Not swayed by opinions tainted with lies Deep pools of clarity with no concept of pain Pondering what we’re told without judgment or blame Look at the world through a child’s eyes See the flames of each sunrise through a child’s eyes Set your spirit free like a new butterfly Through a child’s eyes Oh – won’t you give it a try Greet each day through a child’s eyes See the love that exists in everything alive With joy in our hearts it’s so easy to be kind Sharing a smile as we journey… as we journey through space and time Gaze at the stars through a child’s eyes In awe of the wonder that lies beyond the sky The pulse of the cosmos beating in our hearts A soul filled with light guiding us in the dark… in the dark Oh, look at the world through a child’s eyes And see the flames of each sunrise through a child’s eyes Set your spirit free like a new butterfly through a child’s eyes Oh, through a child’s eyes See the flames of each sunrise through a child’s eyes Oh, like a new butterfly See the world as it should be through a child’s eyes Through a child’s eyes and set your spirit free © 2015 Janice Zamb

I’m thrilled to post my first collaboration with my very good and talented friend, Giulietta Juliet Valenti. This song was inspired by a chat we had on FB about dream catchers and how much we liked the Native American legends surrounding them. Read on to learn about the legend, followed by the lyrics. The Legend of Dream Catchers Dream Catchers originated from the Native American belief that the night air was filled with dreams, both good and bad. According to legend, the spiritual leader of the Lakota Indian tribe was meditating on a mountain top seeking divine guidance when a vision of Iktomi - the great searcher of wisdom – appeared in the form of a spider. Iktomi spoke to the shaman of the forces of good and evil that lurked in the night. As he shared his wisdom, the spider picked up the elder's willow hoop, adorned with feathers and decorative beads, and began spinning a web. Returning the webbed willow hoop to the elder, Iktomi said, “I have made you a Dream Catcher. The web is woven in a circle with a hole in the center to help your people reach their goals as they follow their nightly dreams and visions. For those who believe in the Great Spirit, the web will catch the bad dreams in the web to perish with the first rays of the sun. But, the good dreams will pass through the hole in the center of the web and glide down the feathers into the mind of the person asleep.” Iktomi continued to explain the meaning of each element of the Dream Catcher. “The willow bark ring represents the earth. And the web, which can be made from sinewy string, represents the mind and spirit weaving life’s dreams and energy through the universe. The decorative beads call on Mother Earth to bestow her blessings during slumber. Lastly, the feathers stand for breath and air. The movement of the feathers announces the arrival and passage of a new and peaceful dream.” To this day, those believing in the legend, hang Dream Catchers outside a bedroom window, usually at the head of the bed, to allow good dreams to flow easily into their minds while they sleep. Source: www.dream-catchers.org Lyrics Dream Catcher Before I close my eyes Before I drift to sleep I see a ring with feathers swaying in the breeze On a hoop of willow String woven in a net It hangs outside my window Like a spider’s web. Dream catcher Sweet dream catcher Captures dreams in the air Dream catcher Sweet dream catcher Passes dreams to share. Its feathers gently move as dreams sail in the night Bad ones trapped in the web to perish at first light. The net lets sweet dreams slip through its center hole and glide down the feathers into my heart and soul. Dream catcher Sweet dream catcher Captures dreams in the air Dream catcher Sweet dream catcher Passes dreams to share. Adorning the woven web Are shiny crystal beads To call on Mother Earth To bless me while I sleep The dreams that reach me Are up to me to chase Thank you great spirit to guide me to my fate. Dream catcher Sweet dream catcher Captures dreams in the air Dream catcher Sweet dream catcher Passes dreams to share Passes dreams to share. ©2015 Janice Zamb

Open Your Heart was my first collab with Tompaz and Stephen Jones that Tommy posted in December 2014. It was also the first song I wrote with Tommy whose music provided me with so much inspiration. It's a song about opening your heart to kindness, peace and love. And seeing that we live in intolerant times, I decided to repost it on my page. A huge thanks to Tommy for his brilliant music and video and to Steve for adding his wonderful guitar. I hope you enjoy this song. Thanks for listening. Open Your Heart The world can be so dark and cruel Where no one dares to see your face The world can turn its back on sorrow Unwilling to change what’s taking place Where will it end, my brother Destroying what’s made from love Where will it end, dear sister Denying the light that shines above It’s so easy to reject What you don’t understand It’s so easy to hate Without extending a hand Open your eyes to what is real Seeing the pain that’s surrounding you Open your heart to peace and love Creating a world in rainbow hues Look at the desolate faces That could be you tomorrow Walk the road in another one’s shoes Without stumbling in their sorrow Open your eyes to what is real Seeing the pain that’s surrounding you Open your heart to peace and love Creating a world in rainbow hues Where will it end, my brother Destroying what’s made from love Where will it end, my sister Denying the light that shines above Open your eyes to what is real Seeing the pain that’s surrounding you Open your heart to peace and love Creating a world in rainbow hues Open your eyes Open your heart to peace and love © 2014 Janice Zamb

I wrote this song for Jay and what a masterpiece he's produced. His beautiful music and a voice that... read more could make angels weep has given my lyrics a beautiful life in his music. I'm honored to have collaborated with such a talented artist and wonderful person. I hope this is the first of many more collabs to come. Thanks for listening. Lyrics are below. Autumn winds blow through the trees Fluttering waves of vibrant leaves Carpets of scarlet; carpets of gold Summer memories growing old The season ends in a silent hymn As nature sheds her sun-kissed skin. Like a bird perched in a tree Ignoring what is meant to be Daring autumn winds to howl Clinging to its swaying bough But the past is always left behind Nothing slows the wings of time. Like footprints made upon the sand Time slips through the palm of your hand Like footprints made upon the sand Time slips through your hand. Autumn winds blow through the trees Swirling leaves surrounding me Waves of scarlet; waves of gold Summer memories growing old Wondering what might have been As nature sheds her sun-kissed skin. Set adrift in the sea of time Autumn winds invade my mind Moments locked inside my heart While others fade like shooting stars The time has come to leave the past Those days were never meant to last. Like footprints made upon the sand Time slips through the palm of your hand Like footprints made upon the sand Time slips through your hand. ©Janice Zamb 2015

My post of a collaboration with the remarkable artist, Tompaz, dedicated to the victims of yet another senseless mass shooting in America - this time in my home state of Oregon. Perhaps one day we can live together as one. My thanks to Tommy for turning my lyrics into an amazing song. Love and peace. Thanks for listening.
