DANIEL & THE DEAD END


RESOLUTION


Changing sides…

Facing down

My god! I’m changing sides

My god! I’m facing down

I’ll turn into a rock or else

Watch another sunrise

Crack my head wide open

Open wide, girl

Crack my head!

Now just open wide

And let out all the monsters

The moment is ephemeral

Shut up, I’ll shush…

Shut up I´ll shush…

“Out of pride?”

Quiet down, just quiet down

Not crying out of pride

Sorry about the rupture

I cry because I miss you

Fucking up…let’s not fuck up

“Coming back?”

By saying our “I love yous”

Girl, I ain’t coming back

Quiet down, just quiet down

Your love is not an option

Watch another sunrise

Shut up now, shush…

Fucking up…let’s not fuck up

Quiet down, just quiet down

By saying our “I love yous”

Sorry about the rupture Fucking up…let’s not fuck up By saying our “I love yous”


You’re like sunshine You’re like sunshine Feels like nothing ever before Feels like heaven of our own You’re like sunshine… You’re like sunshine You’re like sunshine With your light you lit up my mind There ain’t no darkness left inside You’re like sunshine You’re like sunshine my love I’m the rain and I’m the storm But Carol Anne, you’re the sun


SOMETHING ELSE


A LITTLE SONG FOR YERKA


You’re so good to me

Gotta trust me girl

I can hardly wait till it’s Sunday

I do really try

I can hardly wait till it’s Sunday

You’re so good to me

I can hardly wait.

I can hardly wait till it’s Sunday

You’re so good to me

I can hardly wait till it’s Sunday

I can hardly wait till I’m done here

I can hardly wait

I can hardly wait anymore babe

You’re so good to me

I can hardly wait

I am not afraid this time girl

Wish I knew sometimes

I am not afraid this time girl

how to read your mind

I am not afraid

Gotta trust me girl Do the best I can You’re so good to me I can hardly wait till it’s Sunday I can hardly wait till it’s Sunday I can hardly wait. Wish I knew how to please you all the time


Got me out of my bed, it’s shaking Oh my goodness… Went out and the lights were moving Who is…Who are you? Come and get some… Shake my earth, shake my quake, I’m trembling Lightning strikes By the house there’s a tower, it’s dancing… My oh my dear life! A lady started screaming out: “¡Señor de los Milagros! ¿Dónde estás? ¿Por qué nos abandonas? ¿Dónde estás?” Where does your mercy lie? And you know I’ve been screaming too ‘Cause everybody’s waiting for you. Dogs, cats, flags…babies shouting “Let us die!” And “peacemakers” took the lead Oh god…There are no supplies flying in A lady started screaming out: “¡Señor de los Milagros! ¿Dónde estás? ¿Por qué nos abandonas? ¿Dónde estás?” Where does your mercy lie? And you know I’ve been screaming too ‘Cause everybody’s waiting Everybody ‘s fucking waiting for you.


EARTHQUAKE BLUES


MY VALENTINE


Hell no! I won’t give you the last laugh,you laugh too hard Come on! You know this ain’t the last time, don’t let me down One thing’s not to cry, another to laugh… After a while We’ll forget why I’ll drink your wine My Valentine News are you’re someone else’s problem, you’ll never learn Come on! Weren’t you the one who said you’d never move on? Open your mouth. Look me in the eye… And don’t spill a drop Milk tastes like blood We’ve crossed a line No one should cross We walk the line We are the line I’ll drink your wine My Valentine Ignorance is a gift Lie, my love Lie your lies to me And make sure No one ever finds out What we know You fake, you liar…
