Open Arms 03:57
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

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

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

My Baby You 04:01
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…

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

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...

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

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

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…
10.
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

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
12.
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

On My Own 04:48
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

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
15.
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

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…”
