about

Hey everyone! My name is J. Parker Chapman, and I am a singer/songwriter based out of Gainesville, Fl. The purpose of this website is to generate donations for the charity Smile Train. 100% of all of the proceeds from digital album sales of "Three Or Four Words" are donated to Smile Train. For those of you not familiar with Smile Train, they are an organization that funds cleft palate reconstructive surgeries for underprivileged children in third world countries. They give children the simple gift of smiling, but with it a promising future away from second-class status and emotional abuse from their peers. By purchasing my album, you are directly aiding Smile Train's efforts to make the lives of these unfortunate children blessed!

About the Album:
My vision for "Three Or Four Words" was to portray the emotions people feel while dealing with common scenarios in relationships. Young love is bittersweet and most often painful, but the innocence of such untainted love is beautiful and worth fighting for.

released 09 September 2011

My parents and family, for their love and support of my music over these many years; my sister Ashley, for creating such inspiring album artwork; Robbie Carelli, for assisting in production and providing all of the drum tracks on the album, Trey Turner, for assisting in production, Turner Swann, for providing bass tracks for the album; Jill Brownfield, for playing Tambourine on "Thoughts", and all of my friends who have supported and inspired my music for so long.

Track Name: Time
Don't worry about time.
Are you better off losing sleep to find out that you wasted twenty one years only to figure out that your story isn't straight.
Yeah your that confused.
Let me tell you what's wrong and how much you could lose.

Is it over? Did we ever have a choice?
Are you sorry for being an accomplice too? I guess we'll have to blame it all on your eyes.

Are we diving in?
It's too late to back out now.
Losing countless hours trying to figure out
If this is worth the price why can't we give our lives away?
You know you can't run away from time.

If I fixed would you stand up and tell me that I'm right?
Or are you sorry that this never had any meaning?
Are you sure or you sure you want this attention?
Yeah you've made up your mind, again.
Well I'm really not concerned.

Is it over? Did we ever have a choice?
Are you sorry for being an accomplice too? I guess we'll have to blame it all on your lies.

Are we diving in?
It's too late to back out now.
Losing countless hours trying to figure out
If this is worth the price why can't we give our lives away?
You know you can't run away from time.
Track Name: Grey Skies
I see the lie in your eyes.
So you can't see that I'm someone I'm not.
I can't be the one to hold your hand and leave you breathless. Be your man. I'm not the type.

You dream of living at the beach so you can feel the sand beneath your feet and the cool ocean breeze. While I occupy my time with thoughts of regrets; you know I'll let you down, so why choose these grey skies over goodbye?

Please don't tell me where you're going. I can't help myself I'll follow you. Oh this world is filled with darkness; don't let me be the clouds that cover up your light.

Please don't tell me where you're going. Please don't tell me where you are. Oh this world is filled with darkness. Don't let me cover up your light.
Track Name: Angel
I've got an Angel with me who's on my side.
The time's I'm with her, I feel so alive.
But my faith's been weak, and my heart's so numb.
And I can see I've hurt her, cause her eyes are tired.

I'm so scared I will walk this world alone.
Cause an Angel can't stay with someone who can't believe.
Who can't believe

And it's always cold, when she's not here.
And the nights alone, I feel regret.
Cause my life was special with her by my side.
How I miss you Angel. Hope you know I'm sorry.

I'm so scared I will walk this world alone.
How I wish I could make up for all the times you cried.
Wish I could hold you tight.

Cause I was wrong and I feel so empty.
And I miss those eyes and all the smiles you gave me.
And it breaks my heart, knowing that I let you down.

That I let you down.

I've got an Angel with me who's on my side.
Track Name: I've Gotta Be Mad
So this is where things stand I guess the moments couldn't last.
And after those years it's still so hard to look back.
The picture frame outline on the wall is a sign that you won't ever leave my mind.

But if I could do all of this again, I'd still write you every love song in hope you won't forget my name.

But...

I know things are not right , yeah, it's gonna take time.
It's gotta be bad before it gets better.
Is that tremble in your voice mean you don't want to say goodbye?
Babe I'm all ears but right now I've gotta be mad.

I walk around now with a twisted point of view.
Some things are killin' me but some how I'm gonna get through.
And everyone I know can see that I am not the same.
But I tell them it's okay.

But if I could do all of this again, I'd still write you every love song in hope you won't forget my name.

But...

I know things are not right , yeah, it's gonna take time.
It's gotta be bad before it gets better.
Is that tremble in your voice mean you don't want to say goodbye?
Babe I'm all ears but right now I've gotta be mad.

I hope that someday things will all make sense.
I'm praying we're happy with the choices that we make.
And I'll never forget how you smiled when it was me who was making you happy.

I know things are not right , yeah, it's gonna take time.
It's gotta be bad before it gets better.
Is that tremble in your voice mean you don't want to say goodbye?
Babe I'm all ears but right now I've gotta be mad.

I know things are not right , yeah, it's gonna take time.
It's gotta be bad before it gets better.
Is that tremble in your voice mean you don't want to say goodbye?
Babe I'm all ears but right now I've gotta be mad.


Right now I've gotta be mad.

Right now I've gotta be mad.

Right now I've gotta be mad.

Right now I've gotta be mad.
Track Name: Thoughts
It don't make sense this path we walk.
What's loved in life is often lost.
We'll take a stand until we fall.
Use a bottle to hide it all

But the way your eyes light up in the moment.
Or the way your heart grasps on to hope.
In the storm I'll hold on tight 'till the morning.
Watch the scars all fade away.

It hurts to heal, which seems so harsh.
Find someone to numb your thoughts.
We'll search the stars for one last chance.
Wait for hours 'till they're gone

But the way your eyes light up in the moment.
Or the way your heart grasps on to hope.
In the storm I'll hold on tight 'till the morning.
Watch the scars all fade away.

But the way your eyes light up in the moment.
Or the way your heart grasps on to hope.
In the storm I'll hold on tight 'till the morning.
Watch the scars all fade away.

But the way your eyes light up in the moment.
Or the way your heart grasps on to hope.
In the storm I'll hold on tight 'till the morning.
Watch the scars all fade away.
