UNDER THE STARLIGHT

I don’t feel the pain like I use to, I don’t seem to care that much anymore
I’ve grown blind with time, I don’t see the crime 
I don’t even know what day it is 
I remember when I would dance in the starlight 
When things got tough there always was enough hope to fight 
Do you remember dancing in the starlight 
Twirling around, dizzy with love  
Singing all night, under the starlight
 
Now as time goes by it doesn’t matter any less 
You can’t steer the ship you’re in you either sink or float in it 
You get tired of chasing shadows, 
Tired of the promises made You want to hear something simple 
Like your heart is your home and not your grave 

I remember when I would dance in the starlight  
When things got tough there always was enough hope to fight  
Do you remember dancing in the starlight  
Twirling around, dizzy with love  
Singing all night, under the starlight 
I really really miss it I really really miss it 

You would kiss me on the lips and say catch me if you dare 
You know we had this courage, Each day, a beautiful mystery 

Do you remember dancing in starlight 
When things got tough there always was enough hope to fight 
Do you remember dancing in the starlight
Do you remember? We were dancing in the starlight 
When things got tough there always was enough hope to fight 

Do you remember? Do you remember?  We were dancing in the starlight
Twirling around, dizzy with love 
Out of control, crazy in love 
Singing all night, under the starlight.

YOU CAME FROM SOMEWHERE

You came from somewhere, you came to me
You came from somewhere helped me believe
I went far away where no one could reach me
Sifted through the voices to find one who could teach me
Flattery and spies, confusion and lies
I gave up so many good things, my reasons to try
You came from somewhere, you came to me
You came from somewhere helped me believe

You know I walked in circles, I crossed all my lines
I gave in to temptation, to see if I was alive
I saw the beauty grow old and die
I had to surrender my reasons to try

You came from somewhere, you came to me
You came from somewhere helped me believe
I went far away where no one could reach me
Sifted through the voices to find one who could teach me
I saw the beauty grow old and die
I had to surrender, no reason to try

You came from somewhere, you came to me
You came from somewhere helped me believe

Somewhere, I believe Somewhere, I believe

What people are saying...

 "This is my all-time favorite Mark Heard song and I’ve always loved this version of it too. It captures so well the longing for authentic community that Mark wrote about so often, and found missing in the church where he heard “all talk, no touch” while he just wanted to “get real.” The lonely RV making its way through the isolated cold, through the mountains, the desert and finally finding community at the Swap Meet! Beautifully done. A nice picture of our journey to heaven. We all hope to find some traveling companions, but we can get tied up with no time trying to do too much, we have to pull off the road and make time for that “warm wind” and “loves hand.”This captures the song perfectly!"  

- Tom Funk

What people are saying...

"Dan, you just hit a highpoint. Great song, great video, and singing like a bird." 

- The Edge, U2

 "I've known Dan forever and he's the real deal just like his song, performance and video. Very, very cool!" 

- Roger Klein, Cool Music Executive

 "A true artist creating authentically from the depth of his soul. Dan's gifts are needed now more than ever. BRILLIANT!"
 

 - Darren Elder, The Halo Studio

IS IT LOVE

In the moonlight, in your lover’s voice
The silhouette unfolds, as the ground grows cold
You hear the same thing, you fear the same thing

In the Autumn wind when dry colors burn
The skeletons dance beneath the dark skyline

Is it love you're looking for

In the thunder clouds, mountains of rain to fall
In the twisting wind you hear the name that’s called
You hear the same thing, you fear the same thing

Is it love you're looking for
Is it love, love, love
Love you’re looking for

In a child’s eyes
In every lover’s voice
In a baby’s cry
We’ve really got no choice
We’ve really got no choice

Is it love you're looking for
Is it love, love, love
Love you’re looking for

It’s in my child’s eyes
It’s in my mother’s voice
And when I take your hand
We’ve really got no choice

Is it love you're looking for
Is it love, love, love
Love you’re looking for
