Just all the things that I wanted to say but was to afraid to but finding out after the break-up that these were the things she wanted me to say..LOL.. Damned if you do, Damned if you don't I guess... =)

Story

TE KARAKIA NO TE ATUA IS THE "LORDS PRAYER" IN THE MAORI LANGUAGE (POLYNESIAN "NEW ZEALAND" LANGUAGE)

RJ'S CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH ALL OF THE PEOPLE OF THE SOUTH PACIFIC FURTHERS HIS INTEREST IN CULTURE & ANCESTORS OF HIS OWN CULTURE.. CURRENTLY HE SPEAKS THREE LANGUAGE FLOWING AND FLUENT! (ENGLISH,TAHITIAN & FRANCAIS) DATING BACK TO HIS LONG STAYS IN TAHITI LEARNING LANGUAGE,ART,MUSIC AND DRUMMING.. ALSO KNOWLEDGEABLE IN THE SAMOAN LANGUAGE IT IS ONLY FITTING THAT HE TAKE'S INTEREST INTO THE "TE REO" OR MAORI TONGUE..

Story

THIS IS SONG WAS ORIGINALLY WRITTEN AS A THEME SONG TO A BAND NAMED "FLIPSIDE" THAT RJ WAS A MEMBER OF WITH LOCAL SINGER BILLY RODRIGUEZ. WHEN RJ LANDED HIS FIRST RECORDING CONTRACT WITH ISLAND HEAT RECORDS BASED OUT OF SAN DIEGO WITH LONG TIME RECORD LABEL HEAVY HITTER DEAN WHITNEY, WHITNEY LOVED THE SONG (NOW DE-FUNKED BAND FLIPSIDE) SO MUCH THAT HE ASKED RJ TO INCLUDE IT ON HIS DEBUT SOLO CD AND SOON AFTER PRODUCTION WAS DONE IT BECAME THE TITLE TRACK OF THE WHOLE CD. IT REACHED THE TOP 10 AROUND THE STATE INSTANTLY AND I DREAM WAS FULFILLED FOR THE THEN STARVING ARTIST. DREAMS DO COME TRUE IF YOU BELIEVE!

THIS IS A HOMESICK SONG FOR THOSE PEOPLE OVERSEAS AND AWAY FROM HOME. ORIGINALLY WRITTEN FOR A SONG CONTEST BUT IT NEVER PLACED SO RJ GOT TO KEEP HIS SONG. AND A COUPLE YEARS LATER HE FOUND HIMSELF RECORDING IT IN THE GRAMMY AWARD WINNING LAVA TRACKS STUDIO IN BEAUTIFUL KAMUELA ON THE BIG ISLAND WITH  NA HOKU HANOHANO AND GRAMMY AWARD WINNING PRODUCER CHARLES MICHAEL BROTMAN. THIS SONG INSTANTLY BECAME A HIT ON K.I.N.E. HAWAIIAN RADIO ON O'AHU. THERE ARE PLANS TO RE-DO AND RE-ISSUE NEW VERSION TO THE TOURISM INDUSTRY.

SO FULL OF MANA (POWER) THE SPIRITUAL ASPECT AND THE LINEAGE OF THE AREA IS AMAZING. IT IS TRULY CAPTURED WITH CHANT BY. DANNY AKAKA JR. AND NOSE FLUTE ALSO BY AKAKA SON OF THE GREAT SENATOR AKAKA. AKAKA JR. IS A VERY WELL RESPECTED KAHU AND HISTORIAN IN HAWAI'I.

Story

THIS SONG WAS ORIGINALLY WRITTEN TO BE SUNG AS A COUNTRY BALLAD BUT IT PROGRESSED TO BE A SLOW R&B FEEL WITH A SOULFUL OUT TAKE. A SAD SONG ABOUT A TROUBLE GIRL WHO NEEDS A WAY OUT OF HER STRUGGLES AND THE VIEW OF A MAN WANTING TO SAVE HER FROM THIS HARDSHIP. WITH ALL HIS LOVE AND SUPPORT AND EXPRESSING WHAT HE FELT TO HER. TRUE STORY!
