about

Met trots release ik mijn nieuwe EP ‘Tales From Television’. Een verzameling liedjes uit de Televisieserie ‘De Beste Singer Songwriter van Nederland. Je mag zelf bepalen wat je betaalt voor deze plaat. Ik ben een onafhankelijke artiest en breng mijn muziek uit zonder platenmaatschappij. Dat geeft me veel artistieke vrijheid, maar vergt ook investering. Daarom vraag ik je een donatie te doen die je gepast vindt en bij jouw budget past. Zo kan ik nog vele mooie platen blijven maken!

Alvast heel erg bedankt.

Liefs Daniel.

Track Name: Another Year
You slip into my phone on Friday night
I’m looking for a way to cross the bridge to your side ‘cause
Girl you guide me to a place I long forgot
The way you whisper in my ear

I’ve sung about your silver smile
and I’ve dreamed about these golden days
I love how you ease my mind
And clear the road from holes

Remember on the last day of the year
I took your hand and pulled you near
The sky lit up and vanished all our fears
You danced with me and fell into another year

You sneak into my room on Sunday night
Your lips explore my chest when I turn off the light
And we escape into a lovely sensual dance
And we sing our sweet duets

At night when I’m wrapped round you
And entangle my dreams with yours
I break down my walls for you
And pray this seasons lasts

Remember on the last day of the year
I took your hand and pulled you near
The sky lit up and vanished all our fears
We danced into another year

when my valley is filled with rain my dear
The drops won’t wash away my tears
We float upon the waves into another year

Oooh do you
Remember on the last day of the year
I took your hand and pulled you near
The sky lit up and vanished all our fears
You danced with me and fell into another year
Track Name: Dream Brother
I have a dream where you’re standing on water
defying those storms in your soul
I had predicted your prophecy
and now you reveal to me

Gaciously guide me with sonnets and songs
There’s a river of truth in your voice
I would follow you anywhere
I would follow you anywhere

so please don’t be cruel
and wake me up
just leave me right where
the music will never stop

Call me a fool
but I don’t care
just breathe me in and
then you can leave me there
Leave me with my brother in my dreams

I fell in your footsteps and slept in your words
lived for years in your harmonic scene
I would climb up your melodies
to the sky reaching out for thee

I danced with your angels and fought with your demons
traced words in your diary at night
Now you’re slipping away from me
ever slipping away from me
Track Name: We'll Overcome
Once again you have been the angel on my shoulders
Guide me through when no one can percieve this state I’m in
but I know the sky lies heavy on your mornings
and we’ve seen the winter rain
reflected in our fathers’ eyes

In everything I do
I will try to show you all that grows
behind the weeds and all the hurt you see
and if I could
I would take your hand across the land
and stop with every miracle we find
oh brother I will love you ‘till I’m gone
we’ll overcome

When it comes around let your foggy whispers paint the story
Feel the waves the tide comes rolling in like mountain storms
I know soil has gathered around his bones now
but we still see the bitter shadows
dance behind our tired eyes

In everything I do
I will try to show you all that grows
behind the weeds and all the hurt you see
and if I could
I would take your hand across the land
and stop with every miracle we find
oh brother I will love you ‘till I’m gone
we’ll overcome
Track Name: Stupidest Lie
Things just come and go in life
it’s only up to me to decide
to hold on or let go
which battle is worth the fight

I sure need a grip on something firm
I’m trying to learn
oooh not to idolize the freedom of my soul

This will be the last time I drove us apart
that’s the stupidest lie I’ve ever told to anyone
‘cause last time I drove us apart
with the stupidest lie I’ve ever told to anyone

Love just comes and goes
like seasons change the sky
I never questioned how
I never wondered why

but this is what we have
we twist and turn and never learn
but now it’s sink or swim
now it’s embrace or burn

This will be the last time I drove us apart
that’s the stupidest lie I’ve ever told to anyone
‘cause last time I drove us apart
with the stupidest lie I’ve ever told to anyone
Track Name: My Escaping Days
One fine fall
I had escaped it all
I took a train down south
it brought me to you
my one my own
we were like Bob and Joan
i had a change of heart

we’d walk downstream
caught in a dream
we’d kiss on the banks
take off our clothes
our skin still so soft and free of scars

We were young
and we could do anything
Our spirits so strong
‘cause we had our songs to sing
Now I feel lost in the fire
that burns all desire for life here
There’s no relief from my tears
I miss your collorful ways
and I miss my escaping days

We had brave blue eyes
collored by no disguise
we took a leap of faith
and shook off all strings
them bricks them stones
nothing could break our bones
I was reborn

and we’d roll down hill
sweet summer thrills
we’d sit by the fire
red with desire
thinking we’d never ever get burnt
