about

Released in 2013, Where You Begin is Fractal Love Jam's debut album featuring their first collection of original songs. When Martin and Jessalynn first started performing together in 2011, they began with cover songs and slowly built up a repertoire or original music. On this album, they explore various styles and sounds, giving the album something of an eclectic feel (largely due to Martin's wide range of composition styles). Combining elements of world fusion, reggae, dub, alternative pop, power ballads, and a little EDM, Where You Begin has got something for everyone with songs about love, connection, and truth.

Track Name: Storm
instrumental
Track Name: Everybody Rise Up
Everybody rise up
And open your heart to love
Everybody rise up
And make the change
Track Name: Every Time
When the lights go out
And you are filled with doubt
Don’t run, don’t hide from yourself
Find the strength in the now, yeah, you know how
So much confusion around
Oh, for crying out loud
People lying, trying to hold us down
Don’t pay attention . . . stand your ground

Light will break through
Truth with shine
All we need do
Is choose love every time

It makes my heart ache
To see so many who hate
Repeating countless mistakes
Refusing to change, they’d rather live in pain
You could play the victim some more
It’s up to you to settle the score
Drop the rage and leave your fear at the door
Make you decision . . . Love, or what for?

Nobody told you it could get this bad
Nobody blames you
When things don’t turn out quite the way you planned
Nobody showed you, how to let it out
No one to turn to
Who can you trust when your heart is turned inside out?

Light will break through
Truth with shine
All we need do
Is choose love every time
Track Name: Just Let Go
Just let go
Feel what you feel
You will know what is real
Just let go
There’s no need to fear
You will know what is real
If you trust what you feel
Track Name: Where You Begin
You tell me it’s not easy, to know what to say
You tell me it’s not easy, try so hard, every day
You tell me it’s not easy, but that ain’t no way
To find what you want to say

Give yourself the freedom to make mistakes
Give yourself the freedom of to play everyday
Give yourself the freedom, do it today
And get out of your own way

The words you seek are within
Listen to your heart beat
That’s where to begin

Caught up in your own mind
Struggling to find
Answers to the questions: Who am I? Why am I?
Caught up in my own mind
And wasting time

Life is what you make it
That’s what they say
When then do we suffer
Oh the pain, every day
If life is what we make it, then hear me say
That love is the only way

The answers you seek
Are within
Listen to your heart beat
It’s where to begin
Track Name: What Has Been Denied
Life is everything you’re after
Feel the love, the joy, the laughter
Let your heart be light
Don’t lose sight of what really matters
When you heart is bruised and battered
Let love be your guide

Why do we fight
Why do we try so hard to hide
What we feel inside
When will we find the time to unwind
What has been denied?

When I sing the truth will you listen
Will you defend the lies the obsessions
All these crazy games
We’ve been trained to play to perfection
Now I’m begging you to question
Why we live this way

Why do we fight
Why do we try so hard to hide
What we feel inside
When will we find the time to unwind
What has been denied?
Track Name: Energy Garden
Instrumental
Track Name: In Reality
I don’t give a damn what you believe
Belief and reality are not the same thing
Understand that what you believe is only what you think
I wish you would join me right here in reality

Live in illusion
Be the victim
You’ve only go yourself to blame . . .
Track Name: Your Precious Heart
Tell me what’s wrong now
Did something happen
To make you forget who you are
And what the truth is?

Love is everything we are
Open up your aching heart

Tell me what happened
Did someone steal it
Is that where your mind went
Cause you don’t even hear this

Love is everything we are
Open up your bleeding heart

Tell me what’s wrong now
Did something happen
To make you question what you believe
And what this life is?

Love is everything we are
Open up your aching heart

Love is everything we are
Open up your precious heart
Track Name: What It Means to Be Loved
I used to feel so broken down, so spent
I used to fear I’d never heal, but then
You freed me
You showed me
What it means to be loved
You hold me
Enfold me
In the arms of your love

And now I know exactly who I am
You helped me trust
To live in love again

You showed me
You told me
What it means to be loved
You hold me
Enfold me
In the arms of your love

And now I melt
When you look at me that way
And sometimes I hang on every word you say

You see me
You hear me
You fill me with trust
You know me
You show me
What it means to be loved
Track Name: Be Here Now
If only for a while
I wanna see you smile
And dancin’ around
Just give yourself a break
And feel the joy we make

Creating is magic
Judgment is tragic
Fearing the outcome
Won’t get you here now
Stuck in reaction
Choose a new action
Yeah let your guard down
And be here now

Be here now
You know how
Just let go
Relax, enjoy the show
Track Name: Truth or Charades
Hey, don’t worry your life away
There are plenty of ways to play the game
So tell me what choice you’ve made
Truth, truth or charades?

It’s no secret
We are that which we pray to
You won’t regret
Letting the fear fall away
And now let me hear you say

We are God
We are the light and the dark
We are God
And we won’t shy away
We will sing it today

Hey, don’t worry your life away
There will always be thing you can’t explain
So tell me what choice you’ve made
Truth, truth or charades?
