S3-Bonus - Jamie's Songs

S3-Bonus - Jamie's Songs

Jamie was blown away by his Christmas present this year. Six musicians from 6 completely different genres were commissioned to write, compose, and record a song about Jamie. The only information they received was information about Jamie and his case, and they were asked to write a song about whatever aspect or view point resonated with them - whether it was from Jamie's point of view, a supporter's point of view, his family - anything goes. And man, did they really step up to the plate! I can't begin to tell you how wonderful these artists were to work with on this project. They were so in tune, pardon the pun, with Jamie's plight, and our efforts to overturn his wrongful conviction. They were filled with hope for his release, and that has everything to do with you. I have no doubt they garnered material from his support network because the lyrics speak for themselves. Thank you for that. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do! You can see pictures of the artists who are not anonymous and read the lyrics on the episode page on SnowFiles.net. All of them are simply amazing. So - for best listening, slap on your headphones - and don't forget to let us know what you think! Lyrics and links to the individual MP3's in the show notes.

Lyrics: Snowman (acoustic, soulful)

by Anonymous

[verse 1]

 

Locked up

It get colder every year

And for what

How the hell did we end up here?

 

No evidence.. no lessons learnt

No trial to clear a name

Are we just playing a game

In a world full of shame

 

And as the snow began to fall

I could hear the angels calling

 

[chorus]

 

you see truth will always win

You’ll be home once again

Oh the winter snow

Will always show there’s hope

 

And it's like gold. And time will tell

So hold on, your pain is felt

There won’t be no rest

We’ll do our best

To get you home, where you belong

Once again.

 

[verse 2]

 

22 long years

Far too many tears

It’s hard to imagine the pain

You feel each day

And stay, and wait and

 

Up, up all night

It soon will be, be your time to

To relinquish this pain

And hold your name

As a symbol of hope and

 

As the snow begins to fall

I can hear the angels calling

 

[chorus]

 

[bridge]

 

Locked up, for nothing

Justice is coming

I said locked up, right here, for nothing

Justice, it's here, it's coming

 

[chorus]

Lyrics: Justice Shine (pop/country/ukulele)

by Kel

I see a snowman outside

that’s what they call me inside

of this awful place

I did no mistake

 

it’s so hard to breathe

without family

although they’re with me

with their hearts baby

 

[chorus]

 

Yes I know

that I’ll hear something good

it will happen this time

Now is the time

And I know that I have you

now is the time

now is the time

bright oh justice shine!

 

And deep down I know

I am not alone

though it’s 22

that i’ve been without you

 

I’ll freeze my hands someday

cause i’ll finally

feel the snowman’s frost

with my fingertips

 

[chorus]

 

I need your strength

yes i feel that you are with me

what is next?

i want to be free

 

Yes I know

that I’ll hear something good

it will happen this time

Now is the time

And I know

that I have you

now is the time

now is the time

bright oh justice

bright oh justice shine!

Lyrics: Pray for Snow (Rap)

by Anonymous

 

Pray for snow

Pray for snow

Pray for snow

Pray for snow

 

They sayin he did it

he's sayin he didn't

before you pass judgement

let me tell you the story behind the sentence

 

Of a dear friend

serving life without parole

It could be one of many

but this time the name is Jamie Snow

 

Locked up for a murder in a place

that he didn't even go to

sitting in a cage on year 22

for a crime that happened Easter Sunday 91

then 10 years later prosecutors sayin Jamie was the one, with the gun

 

but when they lined 'em up

eyewitnesses never said number 6 was the one

informants got bills and if not they were threatened

most likely to be killed

 

and to make matters worse

Jamie's court appointed attorney went to prison

dealing with his own addiction

like the first officer on the scene

who also went to prison

no murder weapon is listed

and they been fighting the DNA testing

 

The case is finally getting traction

Will you help us?

We're talking about a life

So we gotta be now or never

We gotta keep that pressure on

cause we can never let up

Send the documents and the letters

 

Something's wrong I hope you get the picture

You got the wrong man in the middle

and that's the facts, we not talking riddles

Just trying to make it home before another Christmas

 

Pray for snow

Pray for snow

Pray for snow

Pray for snow

Lyrics: It's not Right Lyrics (Punk)

by Anonymous

 

This can't be my legacy (shout out)

Just waiting for that call (shout out)

 

I need some good news (shout out)

I need some good news (shout out)

 

It doesn't feel any good

No matter how I try to prove

You know you've got the wrong guy

 

[chorus]

 

It's not right

I won't quit the fight

I got a life that's out there for me

Let me get back at what I used to be

 

You know it wasn't me

You fought to hide the proof

But now I see the truth

Still won't test DNA

 

[chorus]

 

It's not right

I won't quit the fight

I got a life that's out there for me

Let me get back at what I used to be

 

I saw my kids grow up in pictures

Behind these cold, gray walls

 

[chorus]

 

It's not right

I won't quit the fight

I got a life that's out there for me

Let me get back at what I used to be

Lyrics: Free at last

by: Sparoxzy

 

I'm in chains, in bondage

I'm caged, I'm stuck here

 

And it's been awhile in here, it's been awhile

but I can't wait to breathe the air of freedom

lying on the grass, gazing at the stars

oh it's been awhile

 

It might be dark right now

but someday I'll see the light

someday I'll see the light

 

Ohh oh oh ohhh

It might be dark right now

but someday I'll see the light

someday I'll see the light

 

and I will scream out loud

I'm free at last

I'm free at last

Free at last

 

and I will scream out loud

I'm free at last

I'm free at last

Free at last

 

and I will scream out loud

I'm free at last

I'm free at last

Free at last

 

and I will scream out loud

I'm free at last

I'm free at last

Free at last, oh oh

 

I'm in pain

I'm broken and somedays

I feel like I shouldn't wake from my bed

so I pray for better days

 

and I

I know I'm not alone

I know I'm not alone

 

And I know that someday I'll be home

 

It might be dark right now

but someday I'll see the light

someday I'll see the light

 

It might be dark right now

but someday I'll see the light

someday I'll see the light

 

and I will scream out loud

I'm free at last

I'm free at last

Free at last

 

and I will scream out loud

I'm free at last

I'm free at last

Free at last

 

and I will scream out loud

I'm free at last

I'm free at last

Free at last

 

and I will scream out loud

I'm free at last

I'm free at last

Free at last

 

Oh oh ohhh

 

I'll be free at last

I'll be free at last

I can't wait to be free

Free, free at last

Lyrics: Snowman (metal)

by Theodore Rondeau

 

No matter it's so far

It won't give me back my time

Go, my heart torn apart

For an unfair crime

 

Snowman Life

Cold as night

Fear of hope

I can't believe noone anymore

I just see my life in picture

It belongs to me...I am sure

 

Snowman

I can now freeze the fate

I won't let come the hate

 

Sinless life for a jail

For my innocence you give me hell

My tears on 6 photographies

My pain flies in ashes

ashes

 

Good call from the justice

What else to say? Fuck the police

Look at me, the mistake you've done

What if it was your son?

your son

 

I will never be down

I will always hold on

Life without parole sentence

Will bring you repentance

I will never be crowned

For all this past life gone

But I'm still who I am

Nothing more than Snowman
