Blue On Blue
Blue On BlueCopyright Daniels & Durgy 2020 Gentle Rain Records Written, Performed and Produced by Daniels & Durgy Here's link to Buy our Album: https://danielsdurgy.bandcamp.com/album/blue-on-blue Lyrics: Blue on blue As the falling leaves flew What a terrible thing to leave you. What a terrible truth to need you. Oh... What I could I do? Should’ve kissed you by that window in your bedroom As the pink light faded into the midnight blue Guess it all came crashing down.. I needed you Should’ve told you that I loved you that I didn’t care who knew.. Blue on Blue.. It’s like we’re on two trains in the opposite way Both looking in the same direction Holding onto this crazy connection Oh.. All I know This feeling’s getting stronger And I want you more Baby hold on to this feeling, I feel it too Don’t care how long it takes, I’ll wait for you Should have held onto you longer When you held me in your arms Blue on Blue
Tommy’s TuneTommy was my brother-in law and died at the age of 54. This song is a tribute to his fortitude to overcome many obstacles throughout his life, to ultimately enjoy the life he was given. He traveled extensively for his professional life and deeply appreciated the wonders of the world, some of the finer things, but he was always close to the same Tommy that grew up through controversy and adversity, just a half step ahead with a smile, a cigarette and perhaps a fine whisky or wine or tea or such. This is just a quick remembrance to honor his spirit and to let him know he is missed. Durge Lyrics: Tommy’s Tune by Craig Durgy +6 Round this world he saw a lot of things Though his time was brief Loved the spices in Korea Drank the sake and toasted in Japanese From the time he was a toddler The world was his to see Hiking through the Berkshire Mountains Fighting so many storms, just to be free But it’s fine, be it dark or divine, each new day that you find Reflects your heart and your mind, so, tell yourself each day As Tommy used to say, Everything Is fine Coast to coast and Rome to London Back home for a parade Sleeping bags and Paris hotels Facing home and abroad, but never afraid Nothing ever came too easily Tried and true to fight When the journey crashed and ended He smiled out of the darkness, into the light But it’s fine, be it dark or divine, each new day that you find Reflects your heart and your mind, so, tell yourself each day As Tommy used to say, Everything Is fine Just fine. Fine
SparrowCopyright Daniels & Durgy 2020 Gentle Rain Records Written, Performed and Produced by Daniels & Durgy Lyrics: Sparrow by Craig Durgy Sitting at a barroom table Just my glass of beer and me I would move if I were able I wait for someone I won’t see Writing on a cocktail napkin That soaks the sweat off of my beer Just one more, is all I’m havin’ ‘Cause there’s something missing here (HER only) I never said I’d stay for good And if I did, did you think I would You held my heart like it was your own Just like a nest, but I have flown I don’t know what I was thinking Stopping here so far from home Guess I’m trying to stop the sinking Searching not to be alone Is it strange that I should want her Laughter and the saddest eyes She would pull me in around her Where the wayward sparrow flies Looks like you’re taking, full control Of the love, I swallowed whole And like whiskey drank too hard Now I’m coughing up my heart Now she soars and I’m a feather Floating like some memory Lost in trying to forget her Found the sparrow must be me And so I sit here, in between The afternoon and night Waiting on the sight unseen The sparrow’s only flight

Stay Safe.. Nat & Durge :) Lyrics: Pocatello Where the mountains look down Cast a spell on This old Idaho town And this fellow, with the lady he found Pocatello Snowflakes floating As they stand face to face North winds blowing Round their gentle embrace Oh this fellow, This lady, this place Pocatello Chorus Where the snow caps, caress the clouds And the valley, lays gray, green and brown And the air fills your head in and out The whippoorwills, are the only sound When they found, just outside the town Pocatello Not a question Would be asked in this time They were destined On this path to the pines He said hello And she fell for the line Pocatello It’s a mystery, What the Rockies can do When he kissed her, he Was sure that he knew For this fellow, dreams can come true Pocatello
Snowman (Live)Copyright 2020 Daniels & Durgy Gentle Rain Records Written, performed and produced by: Daniels & Durgy Snowman I’m still crazy, you got sane My heart plays me, not my brain Love’s a season, and the wind must blow Rhyme ain’t reason, now I’m freezin’, Cause I never let go I used to carry, you away From your weariness and pain Foolish passion, but you got smart Love’s a fashion, whose time is passin’, In a snowman’s heart Chorus But I know when you go, who I am I glisten like a January man Just a statue to you, made of snow, Just frozen through, without a clue, That I shoulda let go You were holy, that was a sin Now I’m sorry, as the snow moves in When I found you, you were charmed But love is bound to come around to Another man’s arms Chorus But I know when you go, who I am I glisten like a January man Just a statue to you, made of snow, Just frozen through, without a clue, That I shoulda let go
You And Me (On Saint Patrick's Day)
You And Me (On Saint Patrick's Day)Copyright 2020 Daniels & Durgy Gentle Rain Records Written, performed and produced by: Daniels & Durgy Lyrics: You & Me (On Saint Patrick’s Day) The winter grows weary, as March fills the air I sit here alone at the bar A song makes me teary, Rose of Clare This cheap Irish whisky is hard And I picture you here, with a pint glass of beer, In an old wooden booth by the wall With a plate of corned beef and a smile ear to ear And hardly a worry at all, no Hardly a worry at all (Chorus) Drink one for the troubles and one for the laughs One more for old Galway Bay And though life has taken us down separate paths It always will be, you and me, on St. Patrick’s Day We’d head out the door ‘fore the morning was o’er As thirsty as two lads could be And walk to Gahan’s just as fast as ya can Just to make sure we got the best seats We’d sit ourselves down and order a round And that shot glass of Paddy’s would sting Then the bagpiper played, oh the sweet sound he made And all through the day we would sing, yes All through the day we would sing (Chorus) Drink one for the troubles and one for the laughs One more for old Galway Bay And though life has taken us down separate paths It always will be, you and me, on St. Patrick’s Day

The Devil Blue Feat. Jerry MaddenCopyright Daniels & Durgy 2020 Written, Performed and produced by: Nat Daniels & Craig Durgy Lead Blues Guitar: Jerry Madden Blues Bass: Jerry Madden Our profound thanks goes to Jerry Madden for helping us out on the Blues Guitar and Bass.. Such a phenomenal player and great guy! Thank you for lending us your exquisite talent!! Lyrics: I guess this is crazy ain't just my mind you're getting to.. I know you're lonely, and you know i've been lonely too Might as well give up on, all reasoning, persuasion, decision, derived through cohesion under you... well, You talk of persuasion!... Red hair that whips you to your grave Eyes that can drown you, turn any man into a slave Girl you're the devil dressed like an angel the constant salvation, inveigling my pleasure into pain Down in the berry fields working the earth with what you sow a spell that's on-top of you well I'm working the plow down to the bone, begging for rain to ease, persuade and please, that may appease the comfort inside us all...

Window Pane (Live)
Window Pane (Live)Copyright 2020 Daniels & Durgy Gentle Rain Records Written, performed and produced by: Daniels & Durgy Window Pane Took a walk to try, to find me This town is home but I, wander blindly Aimless, anxious and afraid, where’s my shadow Passing by the plans I made, where did I go Lost, disappearing like a frost on a window pane There’s a breeze tonight, like a lover’s breath Turning on that light, to reveal what’s left Hoping, dreaming and alive, still moving on the road When the path don’t seem so wide, take a lighter load As the frost melts with the rain, look beyond that window pane Watching clouds surround the moon, still bright Shining like a white balloon, in flight, That overcomes the night There’s a plaque upon the door, welcome to our home Put it up there years before, the kids were grown As the summer peepers sing like a Christmas choir Nothing really means a thing, if you lose your fire As your heart ignites the flame, look beyond that window pane

WildflowerCopyright 2020 Daniels & Durgy Gentle Rain Records Written, performed and produced by: Daniels & Durgy Lyrics: Hey, Wildflower It’s what you call me when In the deep. Your voice drifts to my high tower. As I’m watching for that setting sun to keep But if you wonder how I feel about you, if my love is real Well, I’m a wild flower Unbridled like a summer storm And in your garden I belong Where the Robin sings me like song And I’ll be basking in your sunlight In your gentle rain I’ll feel right Beneath it all.. a Wildflower Instrumental My words fail to reflect my mind, To tell you how I feel in side.. ‘Cause I’m your Wild flower Unbridled like a summer storm But in your garden I belong Where the Robin sings me like song And I’ll be basking in your sunlight In your gentle rain I’ll feel right Beneath it all.. Your Wild flower Beneath it all.. Your Wildflower

All We NeedCopyright 2020 Daniels & Durgy Gentle Rain Records Written, Performed & Produced by: Nat Daniels & Craig Durgy Lyrics: There’s a line we never cross for fear that we might break in a moment chance is lost one giveth and one takes laying waste to words we say in the badlands we remain pride makes us walk away who’s really right or wrong did it matter in the end, we both lose in this fight losing you is hard to bear.. and in the dark and I cant recall why we argued over all the things that seem so small Love is all all you ever needed Love is all all I ever need Love is all All we ever needed You and I are all we ever need Every question I would ask Seemed to push you more away And all your stoic vague replies Only made me do the same But if you cared for me at all talk to me, don’t build a wall Don’t wanna lose you anymore Love is rarely what it seems and the world gets in the way but we can't deny our dreams together unafraid we can let go of all doubt forever love devout You wont lose me anymore Love is all all you ever needed Love is all all I ever need Love is all All we ever needed You and I are all we ever need

Shores Of Loch ShielCopyright Daniels & Durgy 2019 Written, performed and produced by Nat Daniels & Craig Durgy Lyrics: By dim light, you whispered sweet, Will you bind, your heart to me? Though the banners wave, And the shields wait true, Marry me this night, B’fore the morning dew.... In your eyes, Shone the fire light Heather sprig, Lying by my side.. Oh my love, Return to me But should you fall, I’ll follow thee, A Shield maiden fair. Will you follow, my ribbon there To shores of Loch Shiel Where the sun yet shines We’ll shimmer bright On the shield of dreams.... You’ll find me there.

She’s waiting for him, between swaying sheaths Like a dreamless dream, singing hey-ho Bound to his Lordship, he was torn from her arms, Setting sail across to New England But her love broke his bonds From the bow he just flew But a musket rang true singing Hey-ho! Oh, hey-ho, hey-ho Where’s the bonnie lad from Glenfinnan.. He’s searching for her, between toil and the sea A tormented breeze, singing Hey- ho Instrumental And we sing, hey-ho, hey-ho Where’s the two lovers from Glenfinnan? We still hear their song, as the North wind heaves, swaying barley sheaths And their souls, still cry, hey-ho!

JonahCopyright Daniels & Durgy 2019 Gentle Rain Records Written by Craig Durgy and Performed by Daniels & Durgy Lyrics: Jonah I was drowning in a sad sea out of the waves your love just swallowed me So warm and tender I just held on tight I made you laugh until you cried When your tears released me I just couldn’t leave after a while you didn’t notice me but I’ve been there inside you without fail yes I am Jonah and your love is the whale So you take me with you like the tide floating around you keep me warm inside Never knowing that I hide within love lies deeper than the skin Sometimes I’d slip right back into the sea but the sunshine only blinded me and like a ship without a sail I am Jonah and your love is the whale Even though I know you’ll never hear this song I’m still content to keep on hanging on And as the currents take you out to sea Your love will always be the whale and Jonah's always me always me…
CornersCopyright Daniels & Durgy 2019 Gentle Rain Records / Daniels & Durgy Music Written and Performed by Nat Daniels and Craig Durgy Lyrics: I called you on your phone again just to hear your voice but I know I should know better, I should’ve made a different choice but I guess the night has been unkind and the bottle did it’s chore and by the time I reached that bottom, I had the courage to do more I guess it’s been more hard on me, than I would admit To know you’re somewhere happy in the world And every now then when I hear a truckers’ horn In the distance, and in that instance, I miss you. Chorus You said you had enough of always trying, and what’s the point of fighting on a farm that’s dying? You didn’t take a single thing with you but at least you took the dog, And when I saw your taillights fading in the dark My tears filled up the corners of my heart.. 2nd Verse The house is looking run down and the mailbox just fell down I guess you missed all the excitement since you haven’t been around, And the tools that were your pride and joy in a red box neat and nice Is still standing in the hallway, I may have kicked it once or twice, I think it’s kinda funny how all the things we hate, we end up never hating anymore.. And when I get so lonely that I feel like I could die, I wear the jacket that you left behind, As I stare out on the porch every night Chorus 3rd Verse There’s a tea cup on the counter, where you left it long ago I couldn’t find the nerve to clean it, for your hands just left it so And I swear sometimes I see you, in the corner of my eye Just to turn and see there’s nothing but phantom in my mind I could say I miss you less these days .. I’m lying and I hope this message ends before I’m crying, and while you’re searching for yourself out there, just know you have a home, And if you’re passing through, These corners that knew I’ll leave the porch light on In case you feel alone… And need these corners of my heart...

You meant exactly what you said Saying you could never leave Cause you can’t leave where you ain’t been You never really needed me Oh girl you came on loud and strong And in the dark you sure did please But girl the dashboard lights ain’t wrong End of the road for you and me I know that when these headlights Shine on your door I won’t be back here anymore. I see that dashboard in your eyes I guess it’s been there from the start Like bird shit, June bugs, cracks and flies Stuck to the windshield of my heart Ain’t it funny, ain’t it rich That no matter where ya are The road to love is such a bitch Now honey get out of my car I know that when these headlights Shine on your door I won’t be back here anymore.

Every step I walked inside I felt my soul come out the darkness, to make me whole, please make me whole, Chorus: and If this road i’m on must end, can you lead me to forever, and if this beating heart has faith Then I know, yes I know, I’m coming home. 2nd verse I’ve done some things in my life, aint so proud of things i’ve done, was lead astray, in younger age, with things i was dependent on, but now I turn my trust in you Lord I need help, i’ve lost my way i felt your hand, it touched my shoulder i felt your grace, please help me change. Chorus: and If this road i’m on must end, can you lead me to forever, I can make it to the end, Cause I know, that you’re stronger Than any storm.. and If I choose another way He can lead me to forever If this beating heart has faith then I know Yes I know, I’m coming home

Love You Like I Do
Love You Like I DoCopyright Daniels & Durgy 2019 Written by Craig Durgy Lyrics: Far away again, Living on barley and a picture by my radio Sometimes it fades out of view It’s been done before Time pulls apart or brings together Making something new Well honey that may be true I still only know it’s You, That makes me love you like I do Chorus: I do, do , do…. like I do I do do do Folks can scream until they’re blue But I’ll keep coming through to love you like I do The telephone rings I can’t even tell the way that you’ve been wearing your hair.. sometimes it fades out of view. Fighting for your way, crashing into things that sometimes slur the words you meant to say, Well honey here’s one clue, and it’s high time that you knew.. You make me love you like I do Chorus: I do, do, do…. I Do! I do do do Folks can scream until they’re blue But I’ll keep coming through to love you like I do Bridge: I know you can see it when you try you know I’ve got my own style You make me smile.. You make me smile! Don’t you fade away... Like the pictures and the telephone line.. oh baby no, honey stay right where you are! There’s nowhere I’d rather be, Just closer to you with each day that passes by, just closer to you, baby you get me through I’m so glad I’m alive, ‘cause you let me love you like I do Chorus: I do, do , do…. I love you like I do I do do do Folks can scream until they’re blue But I’ll keep coming through to love you like I do... Folks can scream until they’re blue But I’ll keep coming through to love you like I…. Do

Breathing slow… Breathing slow.. Instrumental We both know, time’s a fateful friend, But the glow of this love will never end.. Say it slow, And together we’ll ascend. All the sinners and the saints.. They cant hide from what we all are meant to make. Chorus: Tell me how to stop this heart from loving you? I’d still live a thousand lives to be with you.. and I’d give my heart if you would ask me to.. and I’d breathe your name until the stars lost all their glow.. Breathing slow… Breathing slow.. Breathing slow… Breathing slow..
Nobody Knows She's Mine
Nobody Knows She's MineCopyright Daniels & Durgy 2019 This original song describes the often lonely feeling of love that must remain a secret. The man meets her secretly for fleeting moments but she must always return to her family and husband. They often are left with just their imagination to fully enjoy their deep love for each other, but ultimately the moments manage to get them through. The base recording is a live one.
Ever AgainCopyright Daniels & Durgy 2019 Featuring Larry Deming on Violin/Fiddle and Mike Yarrish on Bass. Credit to Julie Blick for the photo cover (with thanks). Our most sincere thanks to Mike and Larry for lending us your amazing talents on this track! Ever Again Lyrics: We used to talk the night away now I mean nothing to you, We could say most anything, now I don’t know what to do... ‘Cause inside I feel so broken, Like the words we fail to say Since you left and took your lovin’ Like a ship that sailed away.. Chorus But You... You remain, in this moment with me for all time, And I know, I’ll never love someone like I loved you... Ever again. There’s no point in expectations, It’s not how to love someone, But I could never keep you grounded, I’d let you fly into the sun, ‘Cause I'd rather love you freely, than force you into loving me, And though you’re bound to love another, I know your heart is still with me, Chorus But You... You remain, in this moment with me for all time, And I know, I’ll never love someone like I loved you... Ever again. Instrumental But You... You remain, in this moment with me for all time, And I know, I’ll never love someone like I love you... Ever again, Oh you remain, in this moment with me for all time! And I know, I'll never, love someone like I loved you... Ever again... Ever again.
Started SomethingCopyright Daniels & Durgy 2019 Here's a country tune Durge wrote inspired by his wife and how their relationship has grown from that first date to so many happy years and great kids. An upbeat country tune that celebrates the triumphs of marriage despite the challenges that undoubtedly come along. To see the Video click on the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8ZqvKgjjZI
SoftlyThis is a song Craig wrote and was the first song that we did together, prior to officially forming Daniels & Durgy. Nat has gone back in and polished up a lot of the sound quality and added instrumentation to make this now a new, Daniels & Durgy creation. The song describes two people who are temporarily separated by distance but not in spirit. The man remains at home in the country (rural) while the lady is off at some urban setting waiting to return home and be reunited. Lyrics; Softly by Craig Durgy Softly, softly the morning Sunlight, quietly warming Fills the fields, with you until You're back home with me Echoes, traffic below my Window, strangers that go by My hotel, can't wait until I'm back home with you Every day far away Each moment filled with you Everywhere I feel you there So gentle and so true Time alone, but love has grown So softly, softly with you Glowing, lights of the city Knowing, your heart is with me A siren cries and fills my eyes Till I'm in your arms again Starlight, showers the quiet of the Dark night, and I realize it is a ‘nother sign from you, till I'm In your arms again Every day far away Each moment filled with you Everywhere I feel you there So gentle and so true Time alone, but love has grown So softly, softly with you Softly, softly the morning Sunlight, quietly warming My windowsill, just wait until You’re back home with me Echoes, traffic below my Window, strangers that go, right by my Windowsill, just wait until I'm back home with you Gentle rain on my window pane, till you’re in my arms again

With You At The Fair
With You At The FairCopyright Daniels & Durgy 2018 This song recalls a long past day spent at the wonderous state fair with young love. The images and sensations of those fun times when life could so easily become magical and a happy memory. Lyrics: With You At The Fair by Craig Durgy The sun burned white through an autumn breeze Came bursting out into yellow leaves Your denim jacket was a faded blue Your cheeks went red with the morning cool It was your very first time, to see the fair I held your hand to show you, what was there When was that, sunshine I was yours, you were mine Oh I wish every day was there With you at the fair We wandered off from the crowded paths The Dutch Boy’s dike really made you laugh Saw Cinderella in the noon parade I took your picture in the old stockade I’d been there every year that, I could recall T’was love on love for me to, show you it all When was that, sunshine I was yours, you were mine Oh I wish every day was there With you at the fair The headless horseman nearly chased us down That hapless rustler hung in Frontier Town We kissed like warm cotton candy Your hair on my cheek softly dancing The Big Top seemed so small as, you walked with me I loved the way you wiped your, nose on your sleeve When was that, sunshine I was yours, you were mine Oh I wish every day was there With you at the fair
A Candle In The Hay
A Candle In The HayCopyright© Daniels & Durgy 2018 Written and Performed by Craig Durgy & Nat Daniels A Candle In The Hay (lyrics) In the quiet night I listen, for the love that I’ve been missin’ Hoping that the silence goes away Pictures hanging on the wall, seem to watch as I recall How I never asked for you to stay [chorus] I built my home with bricks, but you blew it down like sticks Nothing left to fix, no place to stay Was there something that I missed was your heart beneath those bricks Did I love you too damn much to say… Don’t take your love away I was strong as I could be, I’d never talk you into lovin’ me Giving up my heart’s the price to pay Quiet resignation, and altogether too much patience’ Now I’m a candle in a house of hay [chorus] In the hallway there’s a hint of porchlight, and a memory of a crazy night The party ended and you asked if you could stay Hadn’t seen you in so long, but there you lay, On my pillow till the morning light you stayed Never touched you, never found the words to say And that pillow was still warm as you walked out to the dawn Like the flame that still burns on, this candle in the hay [chorus] Don’t take your love away, don’t take your love away Couldn’t ask for you to stay, with a candle in the hay Just a candle in the hay
The Holly In The Woods
The Holly In The WoodsCopyright Daniels & Durgy 2018 iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/the-holly-in-the-woods-single/1443040521 The Holly in the Woods Walking with your hand in mine on Christmas Eve And the snow it fell like feathers on your boots The cold it drew you close, pulling you into me Till I kissed you by the holly in the woods Well I guess that magic Christmas air might linger yet Though the years have pulled us oh so far apart Like snow that drifts concealing footprints on the path I know that you lie hidden in my heart Chorus I was a hard but such a young man when you looked at me And your eyes just made a child of me again The church bells filled the cold grey sky with revelry And the earth was filled with good will to all men And now as life has wandered from that Christmas Eve Reflecting on a young love where we stood, I’ve only just to think of you and I can see Us kissing by the holly in the woods Yes this is what you did for me, and what I keep, It's the timeless peace that only Christmas brings, The purest joy that makes even the Angels weep, The life within the carols that we sing Chorus Lights keep twinkling bright on every windowsill And the carollers regale the neighbourhood, But as the yuletide passes by my heart will still, Miss you by the holly in the woods. With every colored light upon my Christmas tree I’ll see you by the holly in the woods, Yes I'll see you by the holly in the woods, I’ll miss you by the holly.. in the woods.
SuicideCopyright© Daniels & Durgy 2018 Written and Performed by Craig Durgy and Nat Daniels "There's no present like the time... so make it count" HAPPY HALLOWEEN Everyone! Thank you so much for your continued support and for Liking our songs! Have a happy and safe Halloween... and if you see a clown or werewolf in the dark... RUN. Lyrics: Suicide Its suicide , oh suicide… just suicide for me… just suicide. Other people move ahead but, little voices inside my head say, don’t you go cause danger lingers there, but I really want to try instead, but all those voices in my head say, “don’t you ever, never even dare, no! “ ‘cause it’s suicide… just suicide, just suicide for me, just suicide… when I was little child, some would seek but I just hide, but deep inside I, wanted to be found, and now that I am so much older, why cant i be just a little bolder but i still sit, and listen, for the sound of the voices, in my head! it’s suicide.. oh just suicide.. it’s suicide for me, just suicide.. For life is much too short and sit and, ignore the heart of it… but finally i’m going to, take a chance and live! tonight i’m going to find the nerve, and, i’m heading out into the dead man’s curve… I’m going to ask that little girl, inside me, to dance again… it’s suicide, Oh.. Suicide… It’s suicide for me, Just suicide! So live your life.. Don’t hide! there’s no present like the time..
I’ll PassAs my 62nd birthday approaches this weekend I've become perhaps more and more aware of time and how we all perceive the progression...or the eternity. This is a somewhat tongue and cheek bit of fun as I prepare for nothing much new, yet every day is an awakening. Dedicated to all our friends, young and old. We're all really somewhere in between. Cheers! Lyrics; I’ll Pass by Craig Durgy Lord, I think I’ll pass on turning sixty-two It’s been fun being sixty-one and I just ain’t through And sixty-two has so much to do with sixty-three So could you give sixty-two to someone else but me Well I know that age is just a counting game We learn the rules in school and time becomes a frame It’s a picture of your first day in first grade Then one day your there smiling on the obit page There’s aches and pains that started long ago There’s ills and pills and friends I no longer know But I just don’t need that number chasing me It cramps my style like too much anchovies Now I’m hoping that you hear my message clear I need more time for all this stuff of mine and beer And my kids still need their daddy, every now and then Though I’ll never tuck them in at night again Lord, I think I’ll pass on turning sixty-two I like this place with space between me and you I’m sure you understand I got things to do And I just can’t find time for turning sixty-two I just can’t find time for turning sixty-two
TryWritten and Performed by Nat Daniels and Craig Durgy Copyright © Daniels & Durgy 2018 The ones we lose never truly leave us.. Lyrics: Try was a cold and long November the sky turned into grey we talked away the hours with the things you had to say we all kept on denying but the truth behind it all began to fall though you barely had the strength to stand and say goodbye I just hugged you tight before my flight and wondered why.. How can I just walk away and never see your face look at me once again And then you said: Promise me you’ll try To say goodbye That you’ll get by Without me in your life You gotta try live for me you gotta try You held onto the window I could hear each shallow breath your eyes were sheer defiance like a lion facing death you told me how you loved me and how you proud you were of all the things I’ve done you left your words of wisdom that would follow me never turn your back on God, be kind, do righteous things watching over you that night I had a feeling we would never talk again and then you said : promise me you’ll try to say goodbye that you’ll get by without me in your life promise me, you’ll live for me, you gotta try
It Was You
It Was YouPlease repost our Song if you like it... it would mean a whole lot to us. Thank you so so much for your kindness. Copyright Daniels & Durgy 2018 Written and performed by: Nat Daniels & Craig Durgy This is a sweet little folk song Durge and I wrote about everlasting love... the kind that transcends all space and time, far beyond the reach of the universe and the mortal coil... something so profound, it's spiritual. Its very simplistic.. Piano, Acoustic Guitar, and a Studio Bass in between... We hope you all love it as much as we do. Lyrics: It Was You You’re the poet that I want to fall in love with when I read You’re the first sip of forbidden wine my parents couldn’t see, You’re the sunshine that surrounds me in a sunflower field, And the moonlight that holds me when I sleep.. You’re that first sip of coffee when I wake up in the morn’ you’re the beauty of the rays of sun that wakens up the dawn You’re the first bite of strawberries before it gets too much you’re the light side of every single touch Chorus: Long long before the earth began to spin and the stars crept in sideways as the universe began Long before there was questions ‘bout the wrongs and the rights long before there was day and was a night It was you, It was you! Only you. You’re the first one i think of in the early morning light And the last one that i think of when i go to bed at night and If I were a clipper you’re the only sea I’d sail And the true north I would follow anywhere I wanna be the one you come when its comfort that you seek, when you rest your weary head, on that pillow next to me. When your heart is on fire, and you’re aching in your bones, I will calm all the rage that you hold. Chorus Long Long before a heaven or a hell, guess our souls were intertwined by some…magic spell. It was you, always you, but I didn’t know it then, through the ages, long before all time began. Yes…. long before the comets thought of passing by, long before the stars would fall into the deep midnight sky, long before anyone ever wished for something new, in my heart all I wished for was you. You should know that I love you, no matter what I do.. It was you, You Always you.
I’m Always Losing You
I’m Always Losing YouCopyright Daniels & Durgy 2018 Lyrics : I'm Always losing you As the shades of morning breaks Ain’t it funny how we hesitate, to say the things that weigh our weary minds? He packed his travel bags last night, About to take another flight to God knows where, and God knows what again... He’s always been a travelling man, and i always tried to understand That he’s gotta do the things he’s gotta do, But every time i hear that garden gate, squeaking open ... It reminds how, i’m always losing you…. Chorus So i’m living half a life Without you in it, And breathing half a breathe without you in it, And I feel this heartache deep inside of me, Like a tidal wave that hits the barren seas And i wish, I wish that you were here with me. Discovery’s a wicked thing, when you find out things you didn’t see, And didn’t want to know ‘till it was there.. But as i watched you pack your bags The sadness that you always had, Seemed to disappear, behind a wandering smile, But something ‘bout his mind has changed, his shirt is tucked and he’s always shaved, and he’s walking like a prince that won a throne, But every time i hear the wind push the porch door open, It reminds me how, you left that night for good. Chorus So i’m living half a life Without you in it, And I’m breathing half a breathe without you in it, And i feel this heartache deep inside of me, Like a tidal wave that hits the barren sea, And i wish, I wish you’re coming back to me, And i’ll always be just wishing on a dream... But I’ll always see you living here with me.
This Side Of The Line
This Side Of The LineCopyright Daniels & Durgy 2018 This original song describes that feeling of escaping your day-to-day work life, wandering through the crowds to the sanctity of a local pub. And there the really deep rooted thoughts and meanings get their chance to rise to the surface and take over. In the contemplative world of the low lights and the general banter, the heart overcomes the brain and for a while you get lost in it, on that side of the line between real life and the one that got away..... (lyrics below) This Side Of The Line: Out of the crowds I Look for a break in this fast moving day As I look about I Shiver awake to the city’s cold grey Turn down the lane And into a pub, dimly glowing and warm Settle my brain With the flame in the whiskey as it goes down Man on the rise I, lose sight of the prize, my Time really flies when I’m getting things done But now and again I, remember when I Escaped to the arms of a certain someone Ordered a beer Wash down the whiskey and stir up the past Bringing her near Just like this bottle, the curve of the glass Study the mirror Reflecting the colors of spirits and light Everything’s clear Dissecting old lovers like stars in the night Man on the rise I, lose sight of the prize, my Time really flies when I’m getting things done But now and again I, remember when I Escaped to the arms of a certain someone Time to go home Can’t stay too long on this side of the line But here all alone I feel her lips on this bottle of mine This side of the line I feel her lips on this bottle of mine
