about

John Orr Franklin’s third CD release entitled Lighthouse is an album with an overall theme of light, love and the choices that we all face in life. The album expands on John’s catalog with a production theme defined as much by the ambient and trance qualities of the drum programming as well as it is defined by the progressive rock orchestrations of his previous releases.

Track Name: Love Light Alive
"Love Light Alive"

each and everyone
you love today
becomes a beacon light
that guides the way
their energy passes on
the universe burns bright

with love light alive
peace truth and harmony

love is all you need
to find the way
don’t listen to the dark
that lies and hates
your heart will know what’s right
the frequencies ignite

with love light alive
peace truth and harmony

just listen to your heart
and you’ll know what’s right
just listen to your heart
as you fill with light
just listen to your heart
and let truth inside

leave behind the ones
that must control
for universal love
you can not hold
their negativity bleeds
you’ll find your way to peace
with love light alive
peace truth and harmony
Track Name: Deep Inside
far away
now i’ve come back to stay
yeah i’ve come through the grey
into the light of day
feel the light shining bright
deep inside in your eyes
feel the light shining bright
deep inside in your eyes
draw the line
feel the right in time
all the writings on the wall
it’s deep inside your eyes
feel the light shining bright
deep inside in your eyes
feel the light shining bright
deep inside in your eyes
draw the line
feel the right in time
all the writings on the wall
it’s deep inside your eyes
far away
now i’ve come back to stay
yeah i’ve come through the grey
into the light of day
feel the light shining bright
deep inside in your eyes oh
feel the light shining bright
deep inside in your eyes oh
feel the light shining bright
deep inside in your eyes oh
feel the light shining bright
Track Name: Energy
since he lit the spark
that set off your heart
like a bolt of lightning
flashing across the sky
those currents are surrounding us
and making up our lives
all the pulses of time are…energy
each of us a creator
to the one combined
a creative conscience
in and out of mind
as the rivers are flowing
deep within our hearts
all that intertwines is…energy
as our lives are pulsing
across this span of time
everything combined is…energy
Track Name: Infinity
looking skyward from the shore
i planted my feet in the sand
the coastal tide washed over me
while high above the moon
and far below the ocean floor
life streamed to what seemed like infinity
yeah life streamed to what seemed like infinity

i stood there watching the waves of certainty
flow in and around me
while high above the moon
lit the white sands
as life streamed to what seemed like infinity
yeah life streamed to what seemed like infinity
repeat 2nd verse
repeat chorus
Track Name: Lighthouse
as your standing upon the rock
and the waves around you churn
all the doors will they unlock
or the bridges around you burn

as you ask yourself
what am i not doing right down here?
as you ask yourself
what am i supposed to give?

keep it shining don’t ever fade
as the lights around you fall
like a beacon that stands unswayed
stand up and heed the call

as you ask yourself
what am i not doing right down here?
as you ask yourself
what am i supposed to give?

i see it shining from far away
it’s getting much closer every day
the light that guides us home across the sea
the lighthouse stands alone for you and me

as your standing upon the rock
and the waves around you churn
all the doors will they unlock
or the bridges around you burn

as you ask yourself
what am i not doing right down here?
as you ask yourself
what am i supposed to give?

i see it calling from far away
it’s getting much closer every day
the light that guides us home across the sea
the lighthouse stands alone for you and me

it’s time
it’s time
it’s time
Track Name: The Choice
i was lost upon a sea
for what seemed eternity
as i tried to find my way
i knew there’d come a day
i’d see your eyes
and hear your cries

just take a stand
and fight for your
belief in who you are

a guiding light at bay
or did my eyes betray
a siren song that screamed
i slipped into a dream
I see your eyes
and hear your cries

just take a stand
and find your way
just believe in who you are

and now i’ve seen
those chains break free
and now i see
what’s between you and me
life in the thrill of the choice

the time to decide
it cannot be denied
with all the will it takes
i pray this soul won’t break
i see your eyes i hear your cries

just take a stand
and find your way
just believe in who you are

and now i’ve seen
those chains break free
and now i see
what’s between you and me
life in the thrill of the choice
Track Name: A Different Path
so many mountains I have lived to climb
so many doorways that I find
a different path may justify
the road that leads me back here to you
a million ways love rings true
a different path may justify
i’ve seen the light your heart in mine
a different path may justify
time to choose just what you’re living for
the answers lie behind the door
a different path may justify
the steps you take will only lead you home
a destination where you’ve grown
a different path may justify
i’ve seen the light your hand in mine
Track Name: Shine
speak your mind
don’t read between the lines
leave it all behind
with words you can’t define
burn bright and learn to shine
shine, to shine, shine

draw the line
and keep your love alive
in the rising tide
go on and take a dive
it’s the love that’s there
to shine
shine, to shine, shine

valiant warriors roll
on burning tanks of gold
while dreamers stop and stare
reasons to be free
in all that we receive
with tender loving care
the dream is theirs to shine

travel far and wide
stand up and fire away
searching all divides
forever and a day
divide and stand to shine
shine, to shine, shine
Track Name: Mountains
find ourselves standing in
a new point of view
waking up to our realm
then we’ll know what to do

as our love takes us higher
as our love takes us higher
higher than the mountains.

once we’ve reached the summit of
realizing what we could do
maybe then we won’t compromise
what we heard
or thought that we knew

as our love takes us higher
as our love takes us higher
higher than the mountains.

and all the things that get in the way
they stop us cold but we learn to see
all the ways we could live each day
and all the times that we try

till our love takes us higher
till our love takes us higher
yeah our love it takes us higher
yeah our love it takes us higher
