“Losing Sleep” Lyrics

 

Last night took a long walk, overwhelming my mind. 

Struggling to find faces, that would rather not see mine...

 

I’ve been wandering waiting, 

But I’ve been going nowhere, 

Why does it seem I have something

No one else will share?

 

You kept me awake, 

Every night, 

I’ve been losing sleep, 

Every night. 

Though I know in my mind, its not right. 

 

I’ve been wandering waiting, 

In hopes that you’ll come around. 

Why does it seem like

Everything i love leaves this town?

 

I can’t pretend anymore, 

With bags under my eyes

Whats the point of having these dreams if you can never realize?

 

You kept me awake, 

Every night, 

I’ve been losing sleep, 

Every night. 

Still I tuck in my sheets and say goodnight. Goodnight. 

 

I hope this music finds you in a time of peace, health, and safety, and that you're also having productive conversations that find progress and hope for everyone in turmoil. My new album, "Spring to Life" comes out June 9th, and my single, "Be Something" is released this week! Help support my independent and free music podcast! Thank you!

Alina

Alina,

I am so glad to meet you

You’re new in town, 

I’d be happy to drive you around.

I know the way, 

I drive these streets every day.

I know its hard being the new person in town. 

You can tell me all about the doubts you have from leaving. 

But every test that’s given has wrong answers given.    

 

Alina, 

Don’t let this world deceive you.

Your destiny is whatever you wanted to to  be. 

Don’t let the world

Deter you from the goals you care to do

Whatever you define. 

 

Is there a certain company

That appears in your dreams?

 

When I’m too frightened to say the things that are on my mind. 

We get lumped into boxes we can’t break. 

 

I’m afraid of anything except the doubt I can’t explain to you

I want to tell you everything, but I’m too scared to scare off anyone not feeling rhe same. 

 

You’re new but you don’t feel home. 

I’m home but I don’t feel new. 

I’m sad but I could think that thinking

You would be happier here, 

If you felt safe at home. 

And so I’ll give you a ride. 

Even if you had lied.

With you I’d take chance. 

 

Cmin.    G.   D.  

 

Am.  C.  G.

       “Control” Words and Music by Danny Hauger  (played on a Godin Metropolis LTD, Session, and Spector Bass)

 

Turbines and tidal waves,

Secrets I hide away, 

Untraveled palisades, and shores underneath my mind. 

I’m holding thoughts today

That might erode, decay, bind

If I don't say I need more help, I’ll helped me no more. 

 

I don't even want to tell you what I know

(all that I can say to you)

I don't even want to take you if I go 

(Cause I’m already home)

I don’t even want to give you the control  

(Unless you’re gonna show)

Unless you show me that you’re ready to play a role 

(To build me up again)

 

Refineries on track

Deploring fumes up stacks 

And I sit holding back, 

I'm not sure what i could to change

A life i didn't build,

It formed around me while I stood still.

I’m holding on to waves of will with wakes unclear.

Today I was able to unpack a new Spanish Guitar from D'Angelico, and I put it right into my studio. I think that this was a little bit straight ahead, but still enjoyable enough to share with everyone. There is a video on my YouTube Channel, if you would like to see it. My wife named the track when she came in to listen. Enjoy! I will be composing some more complex uses of this instrument soon. But for now, be well, relax, and take a breath.

Sail around the world, just because its Thursday. [Cause you;ve got nothing else to do]

You wait for rocket launches to lift you up for the weekend. Cause you deserve it/ 

Take apart the fabric of everything nearby, to re-design your life. 

 

You want all the best things in life to fall to you, and who’s to tell you no? 

 

This is your day. 

 

There’ve been moments you question, the cliffs and the rainfall. 

There are nights you wonder if anyone else is having trouble sleeping through this . 

 

This is your day. 

This is your day.

 

Coral and ebony, and the lights through the waves. 

You take a deep breath in, as you dive through unexplored caves. 

 

There are times when you wonder if you should just settle in - but put those thoughts aside. 

 

This is your day.

 “Hold Tight” (Blind Spot)  Capo 3 Em.Am Em. Am. C. G. C. D 

There's a blind spot, I can't see around it. 

Did I just make myself a target? 

   

There’s a corollary to the argument,

There’s a fallacy in the sentiment

 

 IM SO TIRED,

IM SO TIRED  

 

I can’t predict the past around this, 

I can’t know what I will be able to resist. 

I feel my vision is escaping,

Replaced by memory and imagining. 

 

Hold tight 

I'm right behind you.

 “Earn your Wings” by Danny Hauger and Tia Beem

Heaviness, 1

Asphalt runway,

Rolling wheels, 

The roar of spinning turbines. 

 

Safe at home,

Silent staircase 2

Hollow shell,

Your Baggage won’t fit in my suitcase.

 

And a ns we rise, 

I can’t help, but remember, How far we could fall . 

 

Earn your wings,

Go Mile by mile. 

And as you ascend

You’ll forget, how it all started 

 

Simpler times, 

No restrictions.

Endless sights,

No need for autopilot.

 

Paper planes, 3

Faded memory,

In pale blue skies

With clouds of cotton candy.

 

And as we rise, [Chorus]

I can’t help, but remember, How far we’ve fallen.   

 

Earn your wings,

Go Mile by mile. 

And as you ascend 

You’ll forget, how it all started.

 

Earn your wings,

Go Mile by mile.  

And as I descend.

I’ll forget how we got started.
