Another Year 04:20
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

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

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

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

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

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.
