The Hardest Part
The Hardest PartCopyright Daniels & Durgy 2021 Gentle Rain Records Available to Buy: https://danielsdurgy.bandcamp.com/track/the-hardest-part Written Performed & Produced by Nat Daniels & Craig Durgy Vocals, Mandolin, Harmonica: Craig Durgy Vocals, Piano, Acoustic Guitar, Bass: Nat Daniels Lyrics: The Hardest Part of Loving you is letting go The Hardest part of loving you, is letting go Because i’m deeper in the storm You Hint at words of love for me, But nothing solid and concrete it’s always some damn mystery That's paved by so much history The hardest part of knowing you is loving you For I couldn’t help it if I tried But I got no place left to speak Beneath a silent you and me But without words the bones grow cold Like some forgotten graveyard stone Chorus: I always say I’ll walk away, but never do Because you’re part of me and who I am And if the earth came to a stand No more oceans… no more land The words I’m not allowed to say Would still endure through any age. Instrumental The Hardest part is bearing love I cannot show.. To burn so bright it cannot die I wish that you could feel the same I’d love you in a thousand ways And though I know you never will I hope you know I love you still... The hardest part of loving you.. is letting you go.
When Angels Fail
When Angels FailAvailable on Bandcamp: https://danielsdurgy.bandcamp.com/album/the-christmas-wish This original song expresses the belief that God carries us through life with the help of angels. Though I would never profess to understand these things in any detail, I do feel that angels are all around us as surely as the darkness lurks in every day. With that I recognize that they fight for us but can't always win our battles for us. We have to accept that and know that ultimately the key is that we are never alone and always loved, even if we lose some of our battles. Copyright Daniels & Durgy 2020 Gentle Rain Records Lyrics: When Angels Fail by Craig Durgy God, He has so much to carry, we reach out to Him in our way With hopes that hopes won’t soon be buried, for some to fight, for some to pray With wisdom stretched and torn between us, sight and feeling grown so frail We trust somehow that He’ll redeem us, even when His Angel’s fail His legions must be all about us, spreading wings to shield and heal Evil hunts our hearts to rout us, we make ourselves its ready meal We make ourselves its ready meal But angels battle unrelenting, every moment, every nail So, bear the cross be not lamenting, even when His angels fail Time is hollow like a reed, reaching from the shadowed depths Up in the air to breathe, and fill the void with every breath If not for those that do God’s work, this world would long ago have died But through the darkness, light preserved, to dry each tear that ever cried To dry each tear that ever cried So, when you face your worst despair, impaled upon the Devil’s tail Fear not for your angel’s there, and through the tears love will prevail Even when the Angel’s fail Even when the Angel’s fail Even when the Angel’s fail Even when the Angel’s fail Side by side, love will prevail
I'll Keep Christmas
I'll Keep ChristmasAvailable on Bandcamp: https://danielsdurgy.bandcamp.com/album/the-christmas-wish An original country song that declares the refusal to let Christmas decline into a purely commercial and politically correct celebration. So PC & Santa-tized! A rare shout out to Jesus, on his birthday (give or take a few months). Features the fine pedal steel accompaniment of Dakota Holden. Honky Tonk Piano - Nat Daniels Copyright Daniels & Durgy 2020 Gentle Rain Records. Lyrics: I’ll Keep Christmas by Craig Durgy You know something has changed in this season of giving The world’s rearranged with our reasons for living But do you recall, the most wonderful time of all? From Walmart on to Wall Street, it’s been leading to this day There’s nothing left for Santa Claus to sell For months now we’ve been running round, like a Christmas Carol play Sorta lifeless, but oh, rehearsed so well. Christmas cards and letters, who’s got time for that? Manger scenes upset us, Christmas carols make folks mad You can keep your wholesale holiday, Santa-tized and so P-C But I’ll keep Christmas, like Jesus Christ keeps me I may not be a poster boy, for how to live your life I work five days a week but I have my fun I love to sit in honky-tonks, with their ornaments and lights And share my Christmas cheer with everyone Christmas cards and letters, who’s got time for that? Manger scenes upset us, Christmas carols make folks mad You can keep your wholesale holiday, Santa-tized and so P-C But I’ll keep Christmas, like Jesus Christ keeps me I have always loved the lights, glowing on the tree Sing Noel and Silent Night, that’s Christmas time to me I should do more for other folks less fortunate than me I should more often thank the Lord above And spend less time out late at bars, but I know that God will be Everywhere, he’s there, beside me with his love Oh, Christmas cards and letters, who’s got time for that? Manger scenes upset us, Christmas carols make folks mad You can keep your wholesale holiday, Santa-tized and so P-C But I’ll keep Christmas, like Jesus Christ keeps me Oh, I’ll keep Christmas, just like Jesus Christ keeps me
Christmas In Denmark
Christmas In DenmarkAvailable on Bandcamp: https://danielsdurgy.bandcamp.com/album/the-christmas-wish An original Christmas themed love song that expresses the beauty of a romantic Christmas in Denmark. Thanks to Dirk Taubenheim for his magical guitar work and credit to Travis Laws on drums (recorded at "The Pocket Loft, Nashville, TN) Copyright Daniels & Durgy 2020 Gentle Rain Records Lyrics: Meet Me In Denmark by Daniels & Durgy If you ever feel tired and lonely And your soul searches for a heavenly home Board a fast train … to one destination And I’ll be there waiting with a flower in my hand Chorus: So promise you’ll meet me for Christmas in Denmark Sit by Yule Fire and share a coffee or two And live like the Danes do…learn the meaning of Hygge And see the true wonders of this beautiful land Verse 2 I know you’re hurting, your spirit is aching Your soul is anchored, to where you are tied Isn’t it time to .. leave the sorrows behind you Come share this Yuletide, with me by your side Chorus: So promise you’ll meet me for Christmas in Denmark Stroll Tivoli Gardens, hear the Saint Alban’s Choir And Kiss me my Darling, as the Northern Lights shimmer And share in the soft glow of a warm winters fire And share in the soft glow of a warm winters fire
Good King Wenceslas
Good King WenceslasAvailable on Bandcamp: https://danielsdurgy.bandcamp.com/album/the-christmas-wish From a live recording we have interpreted this lovely old English Christmas carol. It tells a story of a Bohemian king going on a journey and braving harsh winter weather to give alms to a poor peasant on the Feast of Stephen (December 26, the Second Day of Christmas). During the journey, his page is about to give up the struggle against the cold weather, but is enabled to continue by following the king's footprints, step for step, through the deep snow. The legend is based on the life of the historical Saint Wenceslaus I, Duke of Bohemia or Svatý Václav in Czech (907–935). The name Wenceslas is a Latinised version of the old Czech language "Venceslav". In 1853, English hymnwriter John Mason Neale wrote the "Wenceslas" lyric, in collaboration with his music editor Thomas Helmore, and the carol first appeared in Carols for Christmas-Tide, published by Novello & Co the same year. Neale's lyric was set to the melody of 13th-century spring carol "Tempus adest floridum" ("The time is near for flowering") first published in the 1582 Finnish song collection Piae Cantiones. Good King Wenceslaus Copyright Daniels & Durgy 2020 Gentle Rain Records Lyrics: Good King Wenceslas looked out on the feast of Stephen, When the snow lay round about, deep and crisp and even Brightly shone the moon that night Though the frost was cruel When a poor man came in sight Gathering winter fuel Hither, page, and stand by me, if thou know it telling Yonder peasant, who is he where and what his dwelling Sire, he lives a good league hence Underneath the mountain Right against the forest fence By Saint Agnes fountain Bring me flesh, and bring me wine, bring me pine logs hither. Thou and I will see him dine, when we bear the thither. Page and monarch, forth they went Forth they went together Through the rude wind's wild lament And the bitter weather Sire, the night is darker now, and the wind blows stronger. Fails my heart, I know not how, I can go no longer. Mark my footsteps my good page Tread thou in them boldly Thou shalt find the winter's rage Freeze thy blood less coldly In his master's step he trod, where the snow lay dented. Heat was in the very sod, which the saint had printed. Therefore, Christian men, be sure Wealth or rank possessing, Ye who now will bless the poor, Shall yourselves find blessing Ye who now will bless the poor, Shall yourselves find blessing
ReflectingAvailable on Bandcamp: https://danielsdurgy.bandcamp.com/album/the-christmas-wish Remembrances of being a child and staring at the glowing colored lights on a Christmas tree, inspired the theme which ultimately brings to mind the convergence of love, romance and the timeless beauty of the Christmas season. The thought that we were truly visited by Santa Claus at one time in our distant memory transposes to the gift of love past and present. Nat adds some delicate ukulele and tin whistle to convey the sweet and magical decorations to our audio tree, as it reflects our most cherished hopes and dreams. Copyright Daniels & Durgy 2020 Gentle Rain Records Reflecting by Craig Durgy & Nat Daniels Another Christmas put up the tree Then watch the lights glow and just dream that you’re with me But it’s alright my lover, they glow each year They seem so clear, and the sparkle in your eyes will soon be here The crowded streets are crammed with Christmas cheer If Santa sees it, oh I’m sure he won’t stop here But that’s alright my lover, he came one night Yes, it’s alright, and I love you Christmas girl with all my might Every star that shines, is a teardrop in the sky The darkness hides the lines and the clouds go sailing by Singing Christ is born tonight I want to sleigh ride brandy and beer A cracklin’ fire where we both can huddle near I’ll tell you everything girl, I’ve held inside I took in stride, just to take your ribbons down on Christmas night Oh, I remember a Christmas eve Just shortly after the day you chose to leave But that’s alright my lover, you came back to me Now you can be, oh the greatest gift beneath my Christmas tree I will be around if your ornaments fall down I will pick them off the ground and love the girl I found How I love the girl I found All the things I see, there hanging on the tree The Christmas in my heart, reflecting back at me.... Reflecting

The Holly and the Ivy (God gave his Son to all) Interpreted by Nat Daniels Copyright Daniels & Durgy 2020 Gentle Rain Records The holly and the ivy, When they are both full grown, Of all the trees that are in the woods, The holly bears the crown. The rising of the sun, the hope inside us all His love is like a perfect song, Sweet singing in the choir. The holly bears a blossom, As white as lily flowers, And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ, To be our sweet Saviour. The rising of the sun, brings hope this very hour, God’s love is like a perfect song, with Sweet singing in the choir. The holly bears a berry, As red as rosy flowers and with the birth of Jesus Christ Everlasting life is ours. The rising of the sun, the hope God gives us all The laughter of our children, Sweet singing in the choir. The holly bears a prickle, As sharp as any thorn, And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ On a cold and frosty morn… with the rising of the sun, hope springs inside us all For God so loved everyone of us, that he gave His Son to all

Lyrics: Christmas Wish by Daniels & Durgy Can you see the wonder in a falling leaf The miracle of every day in all the things you see Look at all the children laugh and play with ease They paint their lives in colors of love and joy and peace Oh can we hold each other can we truly see, The love in one another that starts with you and me.. And so it comes full circle on this Christmas Eve Oh love is still the greatest to give and to receive.. A loving smile can heal you like a warm embrace Love is all that matters and all that leads to Grace Are we not all destined to be loving souls? For once we shed this mortal coil we join the same unknown So it comes full circle and giving thanks I pray You’ll all love one another beyond this Christmas Day All it takes kindness, a truly selfless deed, To change the world forever and bring us Holy peace Oh love is all that matters come take my hand ... it’s up to you and me.

Goodnight Moon (Cover)Happy Halloween Folks! Vocal Copyright Daniels & Durgy 2020 Gentle Rain Records Produced, performed and Arranged by Daniels & Durgy Written by: Ambrosia Parsley and guitarist Duke McVinnie Originally performed by Shivaree Lyrics: There's a nail in the door And there's glass on the lawn Tacks on the floor And the TV is on And I always sleep with my guns when you're gone There's a blade by the bed And a phone in my hand A dog on the floor And some cash on the nightstand When I'm all alone the dreaming stops And I just can't stand What should I do I'm just a little baby What if the lights go out And maybe and then the wind just starts to moan Outside the door he followed me home So goodnight moon I want the sun If it's not here soon I might be done No it won't be too soon 'til I say goodnight moon There's a shark in the pool And a witch in the tree A crazy old neighbor and he's been watching me And there's footsteps loud and strong coming down the hall Something's under the bed Now it's out in the hedge There's a big black crow sitting on my window ledge And I hear something scratching through the wall What should I do I'm just a little baby What if the lights go out And maybe and then the wind just starts to moan Outside the door he followed me home So goodnight moon I want the sun If it's not here soon I might be done No it won't be too soon 'til I say goodnight moon
Chances AreCopyright Daniels & Durgy 2020 Gentle Rain Records Written, Performed and Produced by Daniels & Durgy Lyrics: Unveiling of the night Leaves a misty moon In the morning light Driving in my car I know what’s up ahead And seeking what’s behind Floating down I’m lost within this feeling As your sweet sweet words own all meaning I’m in trouble.... Chorus Chances are... you’ll stare at the same moon Chances are... you’re needing my love too I can see your lights are on, As I’m passing on your line Chances are... I’ll give in one more time Chances are......Chances are.... Memories rewind like a broken film Taking me through time Wish I had a dime for every time I said I’m leaving it behind It’s no use, I’m locked within this feeling ‘Cause your sweet sweet words ... Owns all meaning ... I’m in trouble.. Chorus Chances are...my phone will play a tune Chances are... you’ll sway me like you do It’s a game the fates keep playing And It’s playing you and I Chances are... the road will lead me to your arms tonight .. Chances are... Chances are... Chances are.
Sweet Caroline (Neil Diamond Cover / Live)
Sweet Caroline (Neil Diamond Cover / Live)Our interpretation of the classic Neil Diamond song from 1969. His tribute to the Kennedy years of the 60's and a sweet oldie to revisit, even when it isn't the 7th inning stretch at Fenway. This song has special meaning to me as it was played often on the car radio as my dad and I explored the Canadian Maritimes that same summer on a camping/fishing trip that included watching the historic moon landing during our one motel night (with a tv, of course). Hearing this song always brings back that wonderful memory, that magical time of life at only 12 years old. Hope you enjoy what Nat and I did here, with our own Daniels & Durgy version.
Think About Me
Think About MeCopyright Daniels & Durgy 2020 Gentle Rain Records Written, Performed and Produced by Daniels & Durgy Lyrics: Take a look at me, not the man that I used to be because Love let me down, what have we done What was that you said, wish you held onto me instead but now I’m not around, love let me down I thought of you day and night girl, did you think about me Those letters that I would write, crying out girl, that you ought to be My dearest friend (arms around me) so we could spend (eternity) Don’t let it end, oh girl, think about me Tried to make love stay, but it only chased you away, and then Life with you gone, what have we done Finally moved along, loving on without you was wrong, and so I settled down, turned things around You talk of a love before girl, you talk about me You reach out for something more, now you know You’re reaching for me You’re only one (thinking ‘bout me) And what we’ve done (thinking ‘bout me) When love is gone, darlin’, darlin’, think about me. I know it’s a killing game girl, but think about me It never can be the same girl, just think about me We share the seed, both hearts agree, and both hearts bleed Holding him you feel empty baby but, think about me Those dreams that you dreamt maybe girl, you dream about me And how I feel (arms around me), a love that’s real Love lost forever, think about me Love lasts forever, think about me
