about

Series Notes:
All the "Home Sessions (Raw Singles)" series of recordings follow the parameters of making live music. Each song is performed and recorded live, in one take. Sometimes other musicians join in on the song, sometimes Daniel plays and sings alone. Either way, there is only a single track, no doubling up, no layering.

December 2014 // "John Crawford's March"

Track Name: John Crawford's March (December)
Now some of us we pray things, and others we just say things, and most of us don't do anything while the fire rains down upon our heads

Now it's a black and white thing, and it's a wrong and right thing, and that man didn't do anything wrong and the fire rained down on his head

There's no need to take him down and put him in the ground
All he ever wanted was to go back to his family
There's no need to take him down and put him in the ground
All he ever wanted was to go back home

Now the world it has its liars, and the world it has its criers, and sometime they make up the rules and the fire's gonna rain down on their heads

Silence isn't just silence, when it turns to violence, and we ain't gonna be quiet, and the fire's gonna rain down on your head

There's no need to take him down and put him in the ground
All he ever wanted was to go back to his family
There's no need to take him down and put him in the ground
All he ever wanted was to go back home

There's no need to take him down and put him in the ground
All he ever wanted was to go back to his family
There's no need to take him down and put him in the ground
All he ever wanted was to go back home
All he ever wanted was to go back home
All he ever wanted was to go back home
Track Name: Rolling Stones (January)
25 years of your rock and roll
25 years and you've got my soul
Between the two of us we make a whole
You've got to do what you've gotta do
To survive

And rolling stones they roam and roam
And love is gonna find them and bring 'em home
And rolling stones they roam and roam
And love is gonna find them and bring 'em home

25 years of your fire and ice
Day and night and your advice
25 years and it's been so nice
You've got to say what you've gotta say
To survive

And rolling stones they roam and roam
And love is gonna find them and bring 'em home
And rolling stones they roam and roam
And love is gonna find them and bring 'em home


25 years well that ain't so long
My folks went 50 and they're going strong
So here's to 50 more that go on and on
You've got to be what you've gotta be
To survive

And rolling stones they roam and roam
And love is gonna find them and bring 'em home
And rolling stones they roam and roam
And love is gonna find them and bring 'em home

Well love is gonna get you, love is gonna get you
Love is gonna get you and bring you home
Love is gonna get you, love is gonna get you
Love is gonna get you and bring you home
Track Name: Gonna Need A Witness (February)
I'm gonna need a witness
There are so many things to share
Memories are more vivid when there's someone around
Someone who's almost always there

I'm gonna need forgiveness
For all the mistakes I make
For trouble, heartache, struggle and pain
Forgive me, forgive me, for all that I take

I'm gonna need a friendship
Someone who'll listen in
Tell me stories and I'll tell you mine
Time after time after time after time

I'm gonna need some truth
In a world that just don't seem right
Show me what's good, show me what's not
And when it's all stripped away just what have we got

And I'm gonna need you honey
When the nights get cold and long
When we take to the highway or take to the sea
I'll be there for you and you'll be there for me
