about

Some of these songs you may recognise, some you maybe won't but I hope you will feel the Love and Passion I have tried to instil in every track and I hope you will (for those that know me from X Factor ??) hear a side of me you may not have heard before.

With thanks and with love,

Daniel x


Reviews:

“Awesome depth to the music, real feeling in the vocals and a great quality sound. Fabulous musical backing make this a real pleasure to listen too…”

“When you bear in mind that this album was self-produced, without the help of a record company, and on a tight budget, then it really hammers home what an incredible talent Dan is on every musical level. From the unique and stunning arrangements he’s created, to the man’s hauntingly beautiful voice, Dan has delivered a truly remarkable collection of emotional, inspirational and uplifting songs…”

"An amazing collection of real songs, real music for those of us that still appreciate it! All in all, this is a very listenable album, whatever your musical taste, and if you love great music sung with passion, you will love this.
If your only experience of Daniel Evans is through the XFactor, you owe it to yourself to give this album a listen...."

“This is without doubt a magnificent collection of songs sang beautifully by a man with a massively talented voice. Daniel takes you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions from start to finish…”

Track Name: Open Arms
Lying beside you
here in the dark
feeling your heart beat with mine
Softly you whisper
you're so sincere
how could our love be so blind

We sailed on together
we drifted apart
and here you are by my side

So now I come to you
with open arms
Nothing to hide
believe what I say
So here I am
with open arms
hoping you'll see
What your love means to me
open arms

Living without you
living alone
this empty house seems so cold
Wanting to hold you
wanting you near
how much I wanted you home
But now that you've come back
turned night into day
I need you to stay

So now I come to you with open arms
Nothing to hide believe what I say
So here I am with open arms hoping you'll see
What your love means to me open arms
So now I come to you
Nothing to hide believe what I say
So here I am
Hoping you’ll see what your love means to me
Open arms
Track Name: Broken Vow (feat. John Williams)
Tell me his name
I want to know
The way he looks
And where you go
I need to see his face
I need to understand
Why you and I came to an end

Tell me again
I want to hear
Who broke my faith in all these years
Who lays with you at night
While I'm here all alone
Remembering when I was your own

[Chorus:]
I let you go
I let you fly
Why do I keep on asking why
I let you go
Now that I found
A way to keep somehow
More than a broken vow

Tell me the words I never said
Show me the tears you never shed
Give me the touch
That one you promised to be mine
Or has it vanished for all time

[Chorus]

I close my eyes
And dream of you and I
And then I realize
There's more to love than only bitterness and lies
I close my eyes

I'd give away my soul
To hold you once again
And never let this promise end

[Modified Chorus:]
I let you go
I let you fly
Now that I know I’m asking why
I let you go
Now that I found
A way to keep somehow
More than a broken vow
Track Name: Have A Little Faith In Me
When the road gets dark
And you can no longer see
Let my love throw a spark
Have a little faith in me

And when the tears you cry
Are all you can believe
Just give these loving arms a try baby and
Have a little faith, faith in me

Have a little faith in me
Have a little faith in me,
Have a little faith in me
Have a little faith in me

When your secret heart
Cannot speak so easily
Come here darlin’, from a whisper start
And have a little faith in me

And when your back's against the wall
Just turn around and you, you will see
I will catch you, I will catch your fall baby
Have a little faith, faith in me

Have a little faith in me
Have a little faith in me
Have a little faith in me
Have a little faith in me
When the road gets dark
And you can no longer see
Let my love throw a spark baby
Have a little faith in me

Have a little faith in me
Have a little faith in me
Have a little faith in me
Have a little faith in me

I've been loving you for such a long, long time
Expecting nothing in return
Just for you to have a little faith in me
You see time, time is our friend
Cos for us there is no end
All you gotta do is have a little faith in me
Track Name: My Baby You
As I look into your eyes
I see all the reasons why
My life's worth a thousand skies
You're the simplest love I’ve known
And the purest one I’ll own
No you'll never be alone

My baby you
Are the reason I could fly
And 'cause of you
I don't have to wonder why
Baby you
There's no more just getting by
You're the reason I feel so alive

Though these words I say are true
They still fail to capture you
As mere words can only do
How do I explain that smile
And how it turns my world around
Keeping my feet on the ground

My baby you
Are the reason I could fly
And 'cause of you
I don't have to wonder why
Baby you
There's no more just getting by
You're the reason I feel so alive

I will catch you if you fall
I’ll be right there when you call
You're my greatest love of all

You are the reason I could fly
And 'cause of you
I don't have to wonder why
Baby you
There's no more just getting by
You're the reason I feel so alive
Oh, yes I feel so alive…
Track Name: Maria (feat. Snake Davis)
The most beautiful sound I ever heard
Maria, Maria, Maria

All the beautiful sounds of the world in a single word . .
Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria . . .
Maria, Maria
Maria…
I've just met a girl named Maria,
And suddenly that name
Will never be the same
To me.

Maria…
I've just kissed a girl named Maria,
And suddenly I've found
How wonderful a sound
Can be

Maria…
Say it loud and there's music playing,
Say it soft and it's almost like praying.

Maria…
I'll never stop saying Maria…
Maria…

Maria…
Say it loud and there's music playing,
Say it soft and it's almost like praying.
Maria…
I'll never stop saying Maria…
The most beautiful sound I ever heard
Maria
Track Name: There's No Easy Way
I held her close to me
Coz I know she breaks so easily
And then I told her
Though I knew no matter how I tried to console her
Then she'd do the best she could
But there are times the best is no damn good
And no matter how you try to be kind
There's always still a part of you you'll leave behind
When they fall apart
There's no easy way to break somebody's heart.

I lied and told her she'll be fine
Though we both knew it was just a lie
I had to do it
Coz I had said anything to help me get through it.
And she reached out for my hand
And her simple touch was more than I could stand
And I had to turn away coz I knew
All the hurt that she was feeling, I was feeling too
When they fall apart
There's no easy way to break somebody's heart.

She could've gotten angry
And made me feel like a guilty child
But I realized that never was her style
I wanted her to hurt me
And not treat me like a friend
I wanted her to say "there'd be someday
I'd come crawling on my knees to ask her back again"
But she acted like a lady till the end
Oh, what a lady!

I thought that she'd bring down
But she smiled at me and never made a sound
And I guess she understood in her way
Coz her silence told me everything she could not say
When it falls apart
There's just no easy way
There's just no easy way
There's no easy way to break somebody's heart...
Track Name: Wherever You Will Go
So lately, been wondering
Who will be there to take my place
When I'm gone you'll need love
To light the shadows on your face

If a great wave shall fall and fall upon us all
Then between the sand and stone
Could you make it on your own

If I could, then I would
I'll go wherever you will go
Way up high or down low
I'll go wherever you will go

And maybe, I'll find out
A way to make it back someday
To watch you, to guide you
Through the darkest of your days

If a great wave shall fall and fall upon us all
Then I hope there's someone out there
Who can bring me back to you

If I could, then I would
I'll go wherever you will go
Way up high or down low
I'll go wherever you will go

Run away with my heart
Run away with my hope
Run away with my love

I know now, just quite how
My life and love might still go on
In your heart, in your mind
I'll stay with you for all of time

If I could, then I would
I'll go wherever you will go
Way up high or down low
I'll go wherever you will go
If I could turn back time
I'll go wherever you will go
If I could make you mine
I'll go wherever you will go
I'll go wherever you will go
Track Name: She's Out Of My Life
She's out of my life
She's out of my life
And I don't know whether to laugh or cry
I don't know whether to live or die
And it cuts like a knife
She's out of my life

It's out of my hands
It's out of my hands
To think for two years she was here
And I took her for granted I was so cavalier
Now the way that it stands
She's out of my hands

So I've learned that love's not possession
And I've learned that love won't wait
Now I've learned that love needs expression
But I learned too late

And she's out of my life
She's out of my life
Damned indecision and cursed pride
Kept my love for her locked deep inside
And it cuts like a knife
She's out of my life
Track Name: Sometimes...(Interlude)
Sometimes…you’re here…

I feel you close and hear you

Sometimes…I see you…

I feel your breath on my skin

You’re still here…
Track Name: To Where You Are
Who can say for certain
Maybe you're still here
I feel you all around me
Your memories so clear

Deep in the stillness
I can hear you speak
You're still an inspiration
Can it be (?)

That you are my
Forever love
And you are watching over me from up above

Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile to know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are

Are you gently sleeping
Here inside my dreams
And isn't faith believing
All power can't be seen

As my heart holds you
Just one beat away
I cherish all you gave me everyday

'Cause you are my
Forever love
Watching me from up above

And I believe
That angels breathe
And that love will live on and never leave

Fly me up
To where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile
To know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are

I know you're there
A breath away's not far
To where you are
Track Name: What You Won't Do For Love (feat. Snake Davis)
I guess you wonder where I've been
I searched to find a love within
I came back to let you know
Got a thing for you and I can't let go

My friends wonder what is wrong with me
Cause I'm in a daze from your love, you see
I came back to let you know
Got a thing for you and I can't let go

Some people go around the world for love
But they may never find what they dream of

What you won't do, do for love
You've tried everything but you don't give up
In my world only you makes me do
For love what I would not do

My friends wonder what is wrong with me
Well I'm in a daze from your love, you see
I came back to let you know
Got a thing for you and I can't let go

But then I only want the best it's true
They can't believe the things I do for you

What you won't do, do for love
You've tried everything but you won't give up
In my world, only you makes me do
For love what I would not do
Makes me do for love what I would not do
Makes me do for love what I would not do
Track Name: Sometimes When We Touch
You ask me if I love you
And I choke on my reply
I'd rather hurt you honestly
Than mislead you with a lie
And who am I to judge you
Or what you say or do
I'm only just beginning
To see the real you

And sometimes when we touch
The honesty's too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I wanna hold you till I die
Till we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides

Romance and all its strategy
Leaves me battling with my pride
And through the insecurity
Some tenderness survives
I'm just another writer
Still trapped within my truth
A hesitant prize fighter
Still trapped within my youth

And sometimes when we touch
The honesty's too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I wanna hold you till I die
Till we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides

At times I'd like to break you
And drive you to your knees
At times I'd like to break through
And hold you endlessly

At times I understand you
And I know how hard you try
I’ve watched while love commands you
And I watched love pass you by
At times I think we're drifters
Still searching for a friend
A brother or a sister
But then the passion flares again

And sometimes when we touch
The honesty's too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I wanna hold you till I die
Till we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides
Track Name: On My Own
So many times
Said it was forever
Said our love would always be true
Something in my heart always knew
I'd be lying here beside you

On my own
On my own
On my own

So many promises
Never should be spoken
Now I know what loving you cost
Now we're up to talking divorce
And we weren't even married

On my own
Once again now
One more time
By myself

No one said it was easy
But it once was so easy
Well I believed in love
Now here I stand
I wonder why
I'm on my own
On my own
On my own

So many times
I know I should have told you
Losing you it cuts like a knife
You walked out and there went my life
I don't want to live without you

On my own
On my own
On my own
By myself

This wasn't how it was supposed to be
I wish that we could do it all again
I never dreamed I'd spend one night alone
On my own
I've got to find out what was mine again
My heart is saying that it's time again
And I have faith that I will shine again…On my own
Track Name: I'm Already There
He called her on the road
From a lonely cold hotel room
Just to hear her say I love you one more time
But when he heard the sound
Of the kids laughing in the background
He had to wipe away a tear from his eye
A little voice came on the phone
Said "Daddy when you coming home"
He said the first thing that came to his mind

I'm already there
Take a look around
I'm the sunshine in your hair
I'm the shadow on the ground
I'm the whisper in the wind
I'm your imaginary friend
And I know I'm in your prayers
Oh I'm already there

She got back on the phone
Said I really miss you darling
Don't worry about the kids they'll be alright
Wish I was in your arms
Lying right there beside you
But I know that I'll be in your dreams tonight
And I'll gently kiss your lips
Touch you with my fingertips
So turn out the light and close your eyes

I'm already there
Don't make a sound
I'm the beat in your heart
I'm the moonlight shining down
I'm the whisper in the wind
And I'll be there ‘til the end
Can you feel the love that we share
Oh I'm already there

We may be a thousand miles apart
But I'll be with you wherever you are

I'm already there
Take a look around
I'm the sunshine in your hair
I'm the shadow on the ground
I'm the whisper in the wind
And I'll be there ‘til the end
Can you feel the love that we share
Oh I'm already there
Oh I'm already there
Track Name: Somewhere Down The Road (Bonus Acoustic Track)
We had the right love
At the wrong time
Guess I always knew inside
I wouldn't have you for a long time

Those dreams of yours
Are shining on distant shores
And if they're calling you away
I have no right to make you stay

But somewhere down the road
Our roads are gonna cross again
It doesn't really matter when
But somewhere down the road
I know that heart of yours will come to see
That you belong with me

Sometimes goodbyes are not forever
It doesn't matter if you're gone
I still believe in us together

I understand more than you think I can
You have to go out on your own
So you can find your way back home

And somewhere down the road
Our roads are gonna cross again
It doesn't really matter when
But somewhere down the road
I know that heart of yours will come to see
That you belong with me

Letting go is just another way to say
I'll always love you so

We had the right love
At the wrong time
Maybe we've only just begun
Maybe the best is yet to come

And somewhere down the road
Our roads are gonna cross again
It doesn't really matter when
But somewhere down the road
I know that heart of yours will come to see
That you belong
That you belong
That you belong… with me
