I’M SORRY | Joseph James | LYRICS & CHORDS
This song is so unlike many of my other songs. It’s a message from beyond the grave to loved ones caught in the horrible path of its devastation. There is hope! There is a way through it all! There is healing!
Out of having ministered to, counseled many who were either contemplating suicide or someone who lost someone to it’s ugly claws, this song was born. The devastation left behind for family, friends, and acquaintances to have to unexpectedly deal with, is sometimes so overwhelming that it shatters many more lives in its wake. The morning after one such conversation with one of my Lyft riders in San Antonio, Texas, who had recently lost a dear friend to suicide, these lyrics were born, so I walked down to the patio of the hotel with my guitar, wrote them down and added the music.
DARE TO DREAM ALBUM
IT’S GAME TIME!
Who wants to play? Here are the suggestions for rules. Okay, so I am thinking, that perhaps in the midst of all of this isolation, perhaps we can do some fun stuff too. Do you like challenges? How about a guessing game? How about helping us determine the order of the 13 songs on the new DARE TO DREAM album. I can make the choices myself, but I’d rather it be a GROUP THING. When folks share their thoughts with each other, we can gain better insight, plus I’m a bit partial and perhaps a bit biased. THOUGHTS? Comment below.
MY GOAL | I want the final order of the songs to create it own story on the album, kind of like start with one song as the beginning of the story and each adding to it with an ending with the last song.
HERE’S THE PLAN | I created a PLAYLIST on YouTube for the upcoming album. The name of the playlist is DARE TO DREAM Album. There are 6 songs released now that you can hear and rank in the comments below the songs or the playlist itself. This will get others involved as well and we can see what the final list for the album will be. I’m going to rank the songs by numbers of views, duration of views, subscriber’s comments and suggestions. I might even have Will and some others help me.
The whole thing is to get folks to interact with each other in this time of isolation, encourage one another, comment about what the songs mean to you, and help the songs get out there to many who need to hear the messages. The Lord told me through several prophets that he wants me to get my music out there, so I am doing all I can. Here is a list of the songs for the album, not in any necessary order and the links to those that are live now. Please share with your friends and have your own contest. Just something fun. I wonder which song I’m working on next. I’m posting this to my other social media pages and websites.
*** Please note: A few of my older songs, (4), that I’m including on this album are already on my YouTube channel that I am in the process of remixing for the new album, adding new drums, instruments and vocals. There is a short window of time for a sneak peak until I delete them when I upload the new completed versions.
Thank you for being a part and helping in this project.

January 25, 2007 – 6-9pm – Homewood Suites Katy Mills Mall, Katy, Texas, USA
We have begun our outreach to bring encouragement and hope to the communities of our nation and beyond, as we plan to travel the US, Canada and Europe this year. So many have lost hope and are contemplating ending it all.
“Just one more day… and perhaps the storm will break and hope will shine again. Storms are temporary, but death is permanent! Help save a life!” Joseph James

Janiece’s biography is available on Kindle and Amazon and her Sentenced To Death, Destined For Life website has over seven hours of her video testimony. In some venues, they will include other performers in dance, comedy and drama as well. Some of Joseph’s music is on his Youtube channel and he is in the process of recording some new songs and creating some new music videos. Coming Soon! If you’d like to help and/or book a concert, please use our contact form on this website. Please pass this on.
SPECIAL GUESTS – DeeZee & I-SO
Joseph, Janiece and Daniel travel as the Lord opens the doors. Most concerts are free with a love offering. They have their sound equipment with them for up to medium size venues. Let’s join together for our communities and change the world around us.
So, I was awakened in the early hours of this morning on this last day of 2016 and decided to just talk to the Lord, since I was wide awake anyway. In reality, I think it was He, Who was wanting to talk to me. The time was 2:34 am. He reminded me of a scripture I had been wondering about for a while and then He started telling me about it. I had seen one side of the scripture before, but He was taking me deeper into it. RECEIVING THE LORD’S REWARDS! Read more
I’ve had the privilege to do a lot of things in my life and have traveled many miles as well. I’ve been writing songs since 1988 and have tried to share them everywhere, but sometimes things don’t go the way we plan. I’ve written over 200 songs since then and I still have some favorites, some I’ve shared in churches, in concert while we were on the road, on street corners, at a outreach and in small groups. In March 2016, I was invited to share my testimony and music at the Pinewood Studios Prayer Breakfast in Peachtree City, GA. I really have a blast sharing what the Lord has given me. Most of my songs are about the heart and many were touched. I love to encourage people to find their destiny and dreams.
In October 2015, my wife helped convince me to really go after my music. I had received a prophetic word in 2011 to get back to my music and so we started going that direction. We started purchasing equipment and now we have our own portable music studio.
I auditioned for AMTC – Actors, Models, and Talent for Christ back in April 2013, but we didn’t have the funds to send both myself and our son through their training program. This time, it was for me. June 25 – July 3, I will be performing at their competition conference in Orlando at the Gaylord Palms Resort. There are going to be over 75 agents there who represent models, singers, songwriters, actors and dancers, including America’s Got Talent, VH1, Fox, etc. I am looking forward to finally getting my music heard on the big stage. I will be performing my song, “Angel On The Way,” and a cover song by Bread, “Everything I Own.” It has taken me some time to get my voice to sing this cover, but it has been so worth it. Expanding my horizons and hopefully will be writing some new songs soon. Here’s to a new direction.
