REVIEWS

“Daniel's supple, breathy vocals mesh perfectly with the muted yet lush-sounding melodies to create a lovely, late-night feel. The slightly jazzy Dusted, the swirling Soundtrac", and the romantically-charged Lullaby are all swell, but the entire six-pack of tunes are worthy of repeated listening.”
—John M. Borack, Amplifier

Track Name: Dusted
My head is full of fast racing cars
And tug-of-wars with you in the middle
I can’t sleep at night for all these dreams
I’m a centerfold
Or how I never know the words
To the songs you want me to sing most
You asked me to say how I feel and I froze
You make me exposed
I’ll love you until I’m dead, gone and dusted

Every day’s a bright pretty day when you’re with me
But sometimes I bug out
And I think I’ve got a damned, sinful soul
And I fear everything
It’s just frightening and mean
There’s a sweetness in you that I need
I can’t just believe everything I read lately
I see it
I’ll love you until I’m dead, gone and dusted

There’s a sweetness in you that I need
I can’t just believe everything I read lately
I see it
I’m impossibly glad

If I ever get lost again, reel me in
No numb cold water’s gonna help it all go away
But your warmth will
I’ll love you until I’m dead, gone and dusted
Track Name: Star Dust (2002)
I believe in magical things
There’s floodlights making me blind
But I know it’s you
There’s a trick I do with my head
I don’t think much
I stay in bed with you

If I had a big gun or two, baby
And a really good buzz
I could shoot the sun down for you, baby
And buy you the star dust

I think you like teasing my brain
You drink red wine and you wear champagne
It’s true
There’s a full-size map of the world on my back
I always wanted a tattoo

If I had a big gun or two, baby
And a really good buzz
I could shoot the sun down for you, baby
And buy you the star dust

I don’t ever really want to say goodbye
Turn it all off

If I had a big gun or two, baby
And a really good buzz
I could shoot the sun down for you, baby
And buy you the star dust
It’s been a really good run with you lately
It’s been a cool August
I could shoot the sun down for you, baby
And buy you the star dust
Track Name: Coming Down
I’m wired for addiction
There’s pop meditations for sale in me lately
And all these big stupid anthems
I’d sell out my dreams to be next to you, honey

If it’s all coming down, say so

I’m always on target
You’re seriously moonlit and smooth like water
And I’ll love you forever and ever and after

If it’s all coming down, say so

You shine like diamonds
I’m all out of weapons
There’s too many volts and I feel all electric
There’s even static coming off my hands

If it’s all coming down, say so
Track Name: Lullaby
Feels like beds of nails, beds you’re not in with me
I’m into you lately
You’re a shimmer goddess
And every night I’ll sing you
A different song about you
And then always the same lullaby

If you’ll stay
I’m charmed by everything I’m seeing
I’ll see you in the morning
If you curl up next to me
Every night I’ll write you a couple symphonies
And then always the same lullaby
Track Name: Our Great Escape
I always hurt your heart every night
It’s bound to break eventually
I’ve got a super-sized alibi
And a really bad memory

And I don’t know what I mean without you
I don’t want to talk over our great escape

How maybe we could just get away
I know a thing about little shocks
That don’t hurt much a couple days
Then suddenly never stop

I don’t plan ahead well but I love you
I don’t want to talk over our great escape

You look bigger than life when I miss you
I don’t want to talk over our great escape

I always hurt your heart every night
It’s bound to break eventually
I’ve got a super-sized alibi
And a really bad memory
Track Name: Soundtrack
She said “Don’t be long.”
And I tried too hard
And that’s everything I know
I can’t tune you in anymore at night, singing on TV
And sleep right

If I could write a perfect Hollywood ending
And live happily ever after with you
I’d have everything I wanted
It’s not too good to be true
There’s a secret I buried inside me
And it used to make me matter-of-fact
There’s a movie in my head
It’s the story of my comeback
You’re the soundtrack

Girls wrapped up in boys
Have romantic dreams
You guest star in mine sometimes

If I could write a perfect Hollywood ending
And live happily ever after with you
I’d have everything I wanted
It’s not too good to be true
There’s a secret I buried inside me
And it used to make me matter-of-fact
There’s a movie in my head
It’s the story of my comeback
You’re the soundtrack

Whatever you want
Whenever you need
Wherever you’re going
I’ll be there with you
