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.

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
Track Name: Saddest City in the USA (March)
There's a man walking up and down my street
Pushing a wheelchair, dragging his feet
And the wheelchair's empty and he's not okay
It's the saddest city in the USA

This ain't speculation, it's a fact
90,000 people nearly cut in half
Every second job taken away
From the saddest city in the USA

We've got a shopping mall where no one shops
We've got a downtown where no one walks
We've got old timers who talk of the day
Before the saddest city in the USA

On the outskirts of town we've got a lake
And swimming there is another risk you take
'cause the water's poison is what the papers say
In the saddest city in the USA

But there's a beauty in sadness, a beauty in grit
A beauty in something that just won't quit
A beauty in people who are bound to stay
In the saddest city in the USA

And that man still walks up and down my street
Pushing a wheelchair, dragging his feet
The wheelchair's empty, just another day
In the saddest city in the USA
Track Name: The Emerald and the Ash (April)
There's a house in a tree, that's where you would find me
Looking up dreaming dreams, looking down scheming schemes
And the sun doesn't shine now in the same way
And the moon doesn't rise now in the same way

There's a swing facing West, we'd watch the days go to rest
Talk our dreams. make our plans. watch the sky, understand
And the sun doesn't shine now in the same way
And the moon doesn't rise now in the same way

They came from China or Japan, either way, a foreign land
Their emerald was beautiful, you gave them life and they took your soul
And the sun doesn't shine now in the same way
And the moon doesn't rise now in the same way

There's a fire and you are there, then you're gone into the air
One last whisper, one last breath, one last roar upon your death
And the sun doesn't shine now in the same way
And the moon doesn't rise now in the same way
And the sun doesn't shine now in the same way
And the moon doesn't rise now in the same way
In the same way
In the same way
Track Name: Singapore (May)
When we first met my heart was pounding I could barely speak your name
And you asked where I was going we didn't think it'd end in fame
When I set off across the ocean you always took me at my word
And now I wonder if you're crying at all the news you've heard

Oh to be sailing in the harbor
To be soaking in the sun
Oh to be dreaming of tomorrow
But tomorrow I'll be gone

When they stopped me my heart was pounding I could barely speak my name
And I told them I was sorry and I hung my head in shame
All is needed was some money and I never meant to die
If I'd known that they'd kill me then I never would have tried

Oh to be sailing in the harbor
To be soaking in the sun
Oh to be dreaming of tomorrow
But tomorrow I'll be gone

Now tonight my heart is pounding and they've lit candles in my name
It's like the pages of a story except it's me that's gonna hang
When I set off across the ocean you always took me at my word
And now I wonder if you're crying at all the news you've heard

Oh to be sailing in the harbor
To be soaking in the sun
Oh to be dreaming of tomorrow
But tomorrow I'll be gone
Track Name: Your Memory is Fading (June)
Your memory is fading, fading away into the night, the night of day
And there's nobody here, but then they come
In from the cold, and then they're gone
And little by little I guess I'm coming home

Your memory is fading, fading away into the night, the night of day
They say Spring is here and it makes them glad
But the only thing I feel is sad, to try to remember the last Spring we had
I'm coming home, I'm coming home

Your memory is fading, fading away into the night, the night of day
And everyone here says they're a friend
But all of their faces seem to grow dim
I guess that it ends about how it begins
I'm coming home, I'm coming home


Your memory is fading, fading away into the night, the night of day
And now you are here and you are mine
And I wanna hold you to the end of time
I always love it how you ease my mind
I'm coming home, I'm coming home
Track Name: Celebratin' Death (July)
(This song is so raw these lyrics are subject to change!)

No more searching your soul when that last train comes
Or digging in the soil you've gotta get on board

No more waiting for the rain when that last train comes
Or calling out your name you've gotta get on board

No more staring up in the night when that last train comes
Or waiting for the light l you've gotta get on board

No more walking all alone when that last train comes
Or searching for a home you've gotta get on board
Track Name: Twisted Mind (August)
I need something to change deep inside of you
I know every human is broken into two
And some mountains will kill you
And oceans are just so big, and deserts will run you dry

When the mind's in a million places
There's a distance with all familiar faces
And if this ever changes you'll be the first to know
When the mind gets twisted around
Down is up and up is down
And every thought is a burden it's not as easy as
Letting them go

And this is what scares me, the thought to disappear
Is the only thought that seems a little more clear
Would we slip into heaven, or slide into hell
Or go back to the way it was before

When the mind's in a million places
There's a distance with all familiar faces
And if this ever changes you'll be the first to know
When the mind starts drifting away
Day is night and night is day
Every thought is a burden it's not as easy as
Letting them go

I heard mother Teresa seemed to lose her way
And yet she lived as if all were okay
Oh father Abraham I still can't understand
If you would have killed your own

When the mind's in a million places
There's a distance with all familiar faces
And if this ever changes you'll be the first to know
When the mind gets twisted around
Down is up and up is down
And every thought is a burden it's not as easy as
Letting you go
Track Name: My Deliverance (September)
Are you my enemy are you friend to me
A desert or the promised land
Is it my destiny to be in misery
Or will you show me the way

It’s time to pray for my deliverance
Will I make it in the end
One of God’s creatures trying to start again

I didn’t think I’d ever see the place you’re taking me
A place where appetites never die
And in a twisted way maybe I was meant to stay
I the place where it all begins

It’s time to pray for my deliverance
Will I make it in the end
One of God’s creatures trying to start again

And if I walk away live to see another day
Would you believe me if I told you
I used to be a man, used to have some land
Now I’m a number to you

It’s time to pray for my deliverance
Will I make it in the end
One of God’s creatures trying to start again
Track Name: Without You (October)
There's a valley that we've been walking through and it seems to never, ever end
And the thought of being here without you is darker than the night

There's a river and the other side is so far, far away
And without you I just wanna hide away from the night

Without you would I be dreaming of a place where the sun still shines
And without you would I be breathing would I make it through the night

There's a storm and it keeps raging on and the clouds roll in one by one
And without you would I still be strong would I make it through the night
Track Name: Wolves and Critters (November)
The wolves and the critters come out when the sun goes down
If you don't go to sleep you ain't gonna hear a sound
So hush little darlin' lay down your sweet head
You ain't no good to me if you are dead

The wolves and the critters come out when the sky goes black
If you don't go to sleep there's no coming back
So hush little darlin' lay down your sweet head
You ain't no good to me if you are dead

The wolves and the critters come out when the moon is bright
If you don't go to sleep you ain't gonna see no light
So hush little darlin' lay down your sweet head
You ain't no good to me if you are dead

So hush little darlin' lay down your sweet head
You ain't no good to me if you are dead
Track Name: Merry Christmas, Another Year is Leaving Us (December)
Candles and Christmas lights
Singing carols on starry nights
It's a season to give and celebrate
But peace is still in pieces on the earth
That's full of men's will to take more
Than they give before it's too late

And I'm singing Merry Christmas
Another year is leaving us
Just like Grandma did in the Fall
Happy New Year
Welcome to an older age
Resolutions don't resolve

I've got loved ones in my living room
And loved ones in my memories
But voices from the past are in my head
And the past once held the future
But the future's now the present
And it's different than I thought
And I'm here instead

Singing Merry Christmas
Another year is leaving us
Just like Grandma did in the Fall
Happy New Year
Welcome to an older age
Resolutions don't resolve

Happy, happy, happy holidays
Happy, happy, happy holidays
Happy, happy, happy holidays

Merry Christmas
Another year is leaving us
Just like Grandma did in the Fall
Happy New Year
Welcome to an older age
Resolutions don't resolve
