about

Love What You Love is the fifth album from Zach Jones. With keyboard and guitar driven, melodic, rock/ pop songs, loaded with hooks, harmony, pounding drums, and pumping bass; Love What You Love marks a return to Jones’s power-pop roots.

Love What You Love continues to explore themes of love, life, relationships, and growing older. It attempts to examine life’s hardships and complications through the eyes of a positive lens and address how the things we perceive as being negative, can actually strengthen our positive experiences.

about

Zach Jones Portland, Maine

With an encyclopedic knowledge of yesterday’s music and an awareness and appreciation for today’s, Jones combines the raw energy and style of the 1960’s British pop explosion, with the soulful expression of the R&B that poured from Motown & Stax. While paying tribute to the music he loves, yet expanding beyond tradition, Jones has created a fresh musical melting pot of modern rock, pop, and soul. ... more

Track Name: Everything's Fine
Everything is fine
Another a lovely day
Wasting my time
Colorful way

But if you're looking for somebody else
There's nobody here but me
You can spend all your time by yourself
But I'd prefer if you'd spend it with me

It's so important to see
The way things could be

Love could pass you by
If you keep on ignoring the signs
Please don't you cry
Everything is fine

If what they say is true
Our intuition is key
Well I've felt it too
Now it won't let me be

But if you're looking for somebody else
Only you know what's on your mind
Just promise that you'll take care of yourself
And maybe one day you'll find

Just what you're hoping to see
That's what's important to me

But love could pass you by
If you keep on ignoring the signs
So don't you cry
Everything is fine
Track Name: Hate What You Hate
When I was young
I was taught to love everything in the world
and so I did

What did I know?
Hadn't lived at all
I was just another stupid kid

Didn't realize that it takes bad to make good
And hate can be misplaced
it can be misunderstood

Cause you've got to
Hate what you hate
So you can love what you love
Could be a sign from below or a sign from above
You've got to hate what you hate
So you can love what you love

So many things in the world
You can hate today
Racism, poverty,
Hunger, and strife

Sexism, indignation
Prejudice, discrimination
Men without scruples
Who beat their wives

But when it comes down to art
You can take it or leave it
You can take it or leave it
If it's not good

But someone's
got to say if it's even
Worth taking or leaving
If it's not good

Can't stand the latest fashion scene
Blockbuster movies, pop music queens
I sometimes wish they'd all just go away

But would I really love
the things I really love
If I didn't hate the things I hate
If I didn’t hate the things I hate

Cause you've got to
Hate what you hate
So you can love what you love
Could be a sign from below or a sign from above
You've got to hate what you hate
So you can love what you love
Track Name: Away From You
Breaking the lock
Leaving the chain undone
And lying on the ground
Whisper a lonely sound

Shot from a gun
I hate to run
I didn’t see what I had found
Stumbling and falling down

Once more

Cause being away from you
Pains my heart
Wishing you were right here within view
Desperately lonely and blue
Everyday since
Being away from you

This time I really lose
You left so many clues
For me to find
How could I be so blind

Now I’m afraid
Before we meet again
You’ll be swept off your feet again
Tell me what I’d do then

Alone again

When being away from you
Pains my heart
Wishing you were right here within view
Desperately lonely and blue
Everyday since
Being away from you

Following me around
Perpetually feeling blue
The light of your love shines now
I’m longing
To be with you
Track Name: Song In The Sunshine
Lazing about in the afternoon
Headphones on her ears blaring a lonely tune
She's thinking of me, it's true
But today she's got nothing to do
Then to waste all her time
With a song in the sunshine

So lazy, the day just melts away
Ice cold beer in my hands, not word to say
Since I can't shake her out of my mind
I'll just daydream about her and I
Wasting our time
With a song in the sunshine

But there's always one cloud in the sky
It'll stay there until her and I
Find our way through this maze
And spend lazy days
Wasting our time
With a song in the sunshine
Track Name: In Love
Let's get together in love
Light as a feather in love
Let's get together
There's nothing better
In love x3
Oh, in love
Let's get together in love

Let's be together right now
We'll make it work out somehow
Let's be together
Now and forever
In love x3
Oh, in love
Let's be together in love

And I
Won't leave you ever
And you'll never let me down
As long as we're together
In love
Oh, in love

Let's stay together and see
If I'm good for you and you're good for me
Let's stay together
All kinds of weather
In love x3
Oh, in love
Let's stay together in love
Track Name: Lucky One
You see me walking down the street
With my head held high and think
"There goes a man who has got his shit together"

You see me talking to a pretty girl
With a smile on her face and think
"It must be nice to have it so easy"

Yeah, you say I'm the lucky one
You say I'm the lucky one
But looks can always be deceiving

Yeah, you say I'm the lucky one
You say I'm the lucky one
But looks can be deceiving

You make fun of my style
Just cause every time I'm dressed to the nines
But then you try to imitate it

You see me first in line
Though I've just arrived
You can't believe how long you've waited

And you say I'm the lucky one
You say I'm the lucky one
But looks can always be deceiving

Yeah, you say I'm the lucky one
You say I'm the lucky one
But looks can be deceiving

Don't read too far into things that you don't understand
Not everything is as it seems
Drawing your own conclusions is getting out of hand
A familiar and unwelcome scene
Track Name: Nothing's Changed
Silence and music
Two things that are held dear
Need time alone
Only loneliness is feared

Try and avoid
any unpleasant scenes
Know that there's meaning
Don't know what it means

When nothing's changed here but me
No, nothing's changed here but me

Everyday people
Move on with their lives
Blue collared husbands
And working class wives

Giving their all
just to stay in the game
The more that they give
The more things stay the same

And nothing's changed here but me
No, nothing's changed here but me

The sidewalk's alive
being trampled by shoes
Cars passing by
Roll down the avenue

A woman in black
And a man dressed in blue
Everyone
Something important to do

Still nothing's changed here but me
No, nothing's changed here but me

Coming and going
And staking their claims
Meeting new people
Forgetting their names

Constantly flooded
With worry and doubt
Patiently trying
To figure it out

Still nothing's changed here but me
No nothing's changed here but me
Track Name: Some Other Day
You're looking pretty in your vintage dress
I can never find the words to try and express
Just what I want to say
So I'll try again some other day

Didn't think you'd want me, so I didn't try
Thought that you'd be happy with some other guy
And so I walked away
Thought I'd try again some other day

And that's okay
I'll try again some other day
Yeah, that's okay
I'll try again some other day

But now I find I want you more as time goes by
I look at other girls, but they don't catch my eye
I know it's only you I need
But I'm still afraid I won't succeed

Can't help that I'm addicted to the way you smile
I love your sense of humor and your unique style
Signals are difficult to read
And I'm still afraid I won't succeed

But, that's okay
I'll try again some other day
Yeah, that's okay
I'll try again some other day

It took me by surprise the day you said you feel the same
Have my ears deceived me?
Did you really say my name?
Bittersweet, you told me right before I went away
Another endless rainy day

If it's the only way
I'll try again some other day

And now I'm frightened that I've done you wrong
Every time I call you keep me holding on
Won't you tell me now, just what did I do?
And how can I make it up to you?

If this is true, then can I make it right?
Can't continue losing so much sleep at night
Though I never want for us to end
Let me be there for you always as a friend
You know I'll be there for you always as a friend

'Cause that's okay
As long as we've got another day
We'll take it day to day
Then maybe we'll try again some other day
Yeah, we'll try again some other day
Track Name: Little Light
The sun will shine again
Right after the rain
Has washed away my pain

Wrap me in it’s rays
A comforting embrace
Though she’s left without a trace

In the dead of night
She will keep me warm
Providing me with shelter from the storm
The eye of the hurricane

When the lightning strikes
And they’re scared away
I’m waiting for the break of the day
To bring her back

To shine a little light on me
A little bit of light is all I need

That aching sense of loss
Which comes at such great cost
Will leave you feeling lost

though nothing’s really gone
If you hold it in your heart
And you keep on keeping on

And though my feet are worn
Right down to my soul
A steady hand will keep me in control
And back on my way again

Though it’s cold and dark
I’ll wait for a spark
Just a little glimmer of the heart
To bring her back

To shine a little light on me
A little bit of light is all I need

Cause nothing’s ever gone
If you hold it in your heart
Then the lines are never drawn

Though the rain might fall
on another day
Shelter will be found along the way
It’s okay if you need to cry

If it’s cold and dark
Just wait for a spark
Just a little glimmer of the heart
Will bring her back

To shine a little light on me
A little bit of light is all I need
Track Name: Out On The Town
You can walk
You can crawl
You can say pretty please
This unkind
Time away

You can pray
You can beg
Til you're blue in the knees
Didn't want
Me to leave

Now it
Isn't me
Out on the town
To keep you
Company
So don't you call to me
It's just too late now

You can walk
You can run
But you might never see
We're still young
We're still free

You can push
You can pull
Til you're red in the face
Can't unwind
Can't erase

Too bad it
Isn't me
Out on the town
To keep you
Company
Don't you call to me
It's just too late now
