All of the tracks I have worked on so far that I have considered finished or releasable. Tons more demos not done yet but will be added. Figured I'd just give my whole collection for free, or if you choose to donate.

about

Jaysen Ryan Bloomington, Illinois

I love music. Lots of people do. But music does something for me nothing else can: heal. I've been through a lot of bad stuff in my life, a few things I almost didn't survive, but music has helped me through it all.

I create music for me, and only me, with the hope that others can enjoy it as well.

Track Name: Beautiful (Pop Mix 2015)
Your silence
Oh it’s beautiful
With a look of your eyes I know
That you are mine

Your patience
Oh It’s wonderful
With a touch of the hand, I know
that we’re entwined

It’s taking me higher

I’m right on top of the world
Your voice is all that I’ve heard
And it says “I love you”
I’m sitting up on cloud nine
Because I know that you’re mine
And you’re beautiful, beautiful

Your mindset
Oh it’s magical
When you’re speaking your heart
I know that this is right

Your desire
Oh it’s insatiable
With a kiss on the lips
This magic begins tonight

I think I could fly yeah

I’m right on top of the world
Your voice is all that I’ve heard
And it says “I love you”
I’m sitting up on cloud nine
Because I know that you’re mine
And you’re beautiful, beautiful

I’m right on top of the world
Your voice is all that I’ve heard
And it says “I love you”
I’m sitting up on cloud nine
Because I know that you’re mine
And you’re beautiful, beautiful

Since day one that me met
This love has felt like destiny
And no matter what happens next
I’m grateful to have you here with me

Chorus s2
Track Name: Target Practice
He’s the kind of guy
Who is living in a lie
Built a wall on all sides
Targets you and keeps track

He uses his defenses
To scramble all your senses
Reality is twisted
Can’t anticipate attack

He will tell you lies
Fill your head
Til it’s your fault instead
Then you’re dead
And you just can't stand it
He will redirect you
Until he disconnects you
Then you’re left with the truth
He’s got you stranded

Get your target practice
Blame me for your actions
Get yourself some traction
ready, set, aim and fire

Spill the lies you once wrote
Make me be your scapegoat
Hold me down til I float
Burn me til the flames get higher

He’s the kind of man
Who is not even a man
He’s a boy at his best
And he’ll trick and trap you
Doesn’t understand
All the power he commands
But he’s living in denial
He’s still a child

He laughs at the game
but he’s bored just the same
You’re a pawn that he plays
It’s a losing situation
Complicating lives
He’s a villain in disguise
Well it comes as no surprise
That we’re ready to fight back

CHORUS

(They’ll get higher!)

If you’re gonna shoot
Boy, you’d better aim right
Cause if you miss me
I might, come back and get you
Revenge is too good for you
If you wanna hurt me deep
You’d better count your blessings, then your sheep
Cause I’m about to put you to sleep
You are the target now...

Chorus til end
Track Name: The Ugly Truth (Single Mix)
A little boy in the street
A dismal fate he would meet
He'll never understand

So many years of regret
Self confidence never met
He takes a while to become a man

And when the silence breaks the tension
He slips into depression, far too easily
And when the shouting breaks the silence
His world is filled with violence
How can he escape this pain

I never met a boy who grew into a man
Quite like me
I never met a human being who became so in between
Pain and happiness

A child who lived in the dark
Another lack of a spark
A product of broken youth
And still he tries to pretend
That he's well on the mend
And that's the ugly truth

A little time to pretend
This pale facade will not end
I can't deny the truth

A little moment for me
To grasp my reality
It's time to take a stand

And when the voices in the darkness
They seem to tease and taunt me
I must persevere

Cause when the reaper comes to collect
The remnant of a defect
My imperfection shows

I never met a boy who grew into a man
Quite like me
I never met a human being who became so in between
Pain and happiness

A child who lived in the dark
Another lack of a spark
A product of broken youth
And still he tries to pretend
That he's well on the mend
And that's the ugly truth

I never met a boy who grew into a man
Quite like me
I never met a human being who became so in between
Pain and happiness

He knows how hard it is
He sees the pain ahead
He hides away in fear
He'll never understand
The pain that he endured
Was just a test of will
He could have had it all
But now there's so much blood to spill...

I'd never met a boy who grew into a man
Until I met me
I'd never met a human being who made peace with being
In between, pain and happiness

That's the ugly truth

The honest, ugly truth...
Track Name: Dolla Bill (Rent)
Hey girl get your rent
Money's all been spent
Ride that pole for 50 cent
make that hustla pitch a tent
Come now classy gents

You gotta work it, work it
Make em spend they dolla bills
You gotta show it, show it
Give those boys a sexy thrill
You gotta work it, work it
Make em spend they dolla bills
You gotta work it slowly
Give that boy a thrill

Hey there Mr Dolla Bill
You just wanna see them shake it
Toss those dollas ova there
Let them show you how they make it
Walk that sexy catwalk girl
Work the stage and I confess
You can make them turn it out, turn it out, turn it out
Come on girls and make yo rent

Hey boy spend that dough
Watch that girl get on the floor
See her spin around and oh
Come and see her show
Toss her a c-note

Pre + Chorus

Strip and tease
Kiss don't tell
Work your magic
Weave your spell
Twist and turn
All around
Catch them bills
Then touch the ground

Ride that pole
Make him sway
Get your rent girl
Like it's payday
Show them men
Just what you got
Take it off
It's getting hot

Chorus
Track Name: I'm Gonna Be Fine (Single Mix)
Baby I was borderline
I couldn't see the road ahead
I didn't trust my heart's design
I let my soul go unfed

I filled it with so many things that I can not control
And there's no use in looking back
I just needed you to know

That I'm gonna, I'm gonna be fine
Nothing's gonna tear me down
And I'm gonna, I'm gonna be fine
Nothing's gonna stand in my way
Oh I'm gonna, I'm gonna be fine
I feel the strength inside of me
And I'm gonna, I'm gonna be fine
As long as I remember me

I was a mess, alright
I couldn't see the lonely truth
I didn't think about the consequence until the day that I found you
You couldn't break the pattern and I let myself despair
Until you came and rescued me and showed me that you care

I'm gonna, I'm gonna be fine (Chorus)

[Break]

Chorus (And I'm gonna)
Track Name: Personal Storm
Love in this world
Like anything is personal
You either have it or you don’t
But you gotta let it show

No matter what will come your way
You will stand up and you will say
Bring it on, I can take it
bring the storm, I’m gonna make it

As the thunder crashes all around
I feel my heart begin to pound
And if the wind doesn’t make my body torn
I would know, I’d reform, I’m so torn, I’d be reborn
Just trying to survive in my personal storm

Life has a way
Of taking you into the eye
You either brave it, or you don’t
But you gotta, take the ride

No matter who will tear you down
You will fight back, loud and proud
This is me, who I am yeah
if you don’t like it, that’s too bad yeah

Peek into the looking glass
Damn it boy, you got some class
Dress it up, don’t tear it down
Life’s too short to sport a frown
Soon enough you’ll see the truth
every road begins with you
Confidence is key to love
Love yourself and it will come


And as the rain falls in my eyes
I start to see the hidden surprise
There’s a beauty waiting in all of this pain
I would be, perfectly,harmony,especially
My personal storm, it will reinvent me

my personal storm is all I need
To become the man that I’m supposed to be
The wreckage comes, the damage hits
But you’ll never know what you’re made of til you survive it

My personal storm x4
I would be, perfectly,harmony,especially
My personal storm, it will reinvent me
