Jake Mimikos

2 albums

Jake is a folk/pop acoustic artist from the Washington D.C. area. Inspired by soulful singers like Steven Tyler, Eddie Vedder, Chris Cornell, and Freddie Mercury, Jake has a real need for good melodies and thought provoking lyrics in his music. He has been writing in this manner for most of his life. Having fronted many rock bands, he decided to try something different and began working on some solo material. After releasing his first solo work online ("Ride" 2014), he was approached by Austin Bello (producer/artist) about recording at EP. Wanting to make an even bigger impression with his second release, he enthusiastically agreed. Currently, they are piecing together Jake's first solo EP coming soon, so stay tuned!

Lyrics:

Wake the dawn Before the light is gone Come with me Come and shine along Knocking on Apartment doors Wake the dawn Before the light is gone The fire in me The fire in you A house of rebels In the full moon The red of night And the blue of light We’re dancing wild In the firelight And i feel free Free as i can be Together we have found our destiny And i feel free Free is you and me Together we could be our remedy And i feel free yeah I feel free yeah I feel free So raise your drinks To the could be’s To the never haves And never will be’s Cause here and now we’re everything And anything we wanna be yeah And i feel free Free as i can be Together we have found our destiny And i feel free Free is you and me Together we could be our remedy And i feel free yeah I feel free yeah I feel free So when the city sleeps And we start to dream Of colors and shapes Diamonds and spades When we open our eyes Farewell to the night Where dreams came to life In the firelight

Lyrics:

I saw the winter in a summer coat I felt the rain and the dust glow Stand on the moon with the world over head Return rocket man, rocket man I left a print in the grey sand I made a friend in dreamland I took a ride on a satellite Return rocket man, rocket man Fly away tonight Fly away tonight We got the universe in our hands We’re going places we never been The whole universe in our hands We’re all stars in the making In this space a paradise In this place we froze time In this gravity of mine Return rocket man, rocket man In the heart of a gemini In the eyes of the skyline We made a path to cloud nine Return rocket man, rocket man Fly away tonight Fly away tonight We got the universe in our hands We’re going places we never been The whole universe in our hands We’re all stars in the making Fly away tonight Fly away tonight We got the universe in our hands We’re going places we never been The whole universe in our hands We’re all stars in the making

Lyrics:

We believe in the summer sun Neon rays i’m gonna get me some Golden light come and shine on everyone Falling free till we’re free falling Free dancing till we’re dancing free We belong with the wild and the young So go ahead light it up Every night, all at once No one here can ever get enough Loud at living till we’re living loud Found and lost but never lost and found We belong with the wild and the young Oh oh oh oh oh It’s a brand new life It’s a brand new life Oh oh oh oh oh It’s a brand new life It’s a brand new life Take what’s given till you give and take Take a chance on the chance you take We believe we will live and never die Put your hands to the stars and sky Hold on tight for a midnight ride We’ll be up till we see the morning light Oh oh oh oh oh It’s a brand new life It’s a brand new life Oh oh oh oh oh It’s a brand new life It’s a brand new life Now we’re on to something new Letting go of the world we knew Now we’re on to something new Letting go of the world we knew

Lyrics:

Time takes time We’re still dreaming about yesterday The best is yet to come our way The sun in our eyes Every ray is shining oh so bright The future’s here and now to find We’re alive again We’re a paradigm The future’s here and now to find We will shine again We’re a paradigm The future’s here and now to find The future’s here and now to find Through these lines Rewrite a story of our own design Where colors aren’t so black and white The world we knew Is changing faces, spinning out of time Our universe now realigned We’re alive again We’re a paradigm The future’s here and now to find We will shine again We’re a paradigm The future’s here and now to find The future’s here and now to find We’re alive again We’re a paradigm The future’s here and now to find We will shine again We’re a paradigm The future’s here and now to find The future’s here and now to find

Lyrics:

where you are is not where i’ve been I’ve been here all alone in the night It’s where I hide from all our friends Cover up all the red in my eyes Oh i need time to figure me out Oh i need time to let this pill slide down And I need space to unravel the words In my head Oh i need you to break me down Throw another stone or keep your tongue in your mouth Oh i need you to call my bluff Give me a reason to forget your love Oh i need you Oh i need you And what you do is not what i’ve done But its wrong if im not moving on What you’ve done is hit and run Now your gone like a bullet from a gun And i need time to figure you out Only took a minute and there’s not much i found And i need space to pick up your words From the ground Oh i need you to break me down Throw another stone or keep your tongue in your mouth Oh i need you to call my bluff Give me a reason to forget your love Oh i need you Oh i need you
