Songwriters Of New York
 

 

 

 

†Eddy Daniels

Eddy is twenty two. He dropped out of college a couple of years ago and hasn’t really got himself organised since. We don’t know what he's doing at the minute but we see him occasionally for breakfast at the City Grille. He is a very quiet sort of fellow. Very gentle and self effacing.

As with everybody else, we actually have many more of their songs than we publish here. If you want to hear from each of the writers, e mail via the S O N Y website and let us know. We enjoy the feedback.


Time and again

Time and again
You tell me
You are my friend
Time and again
I know you lie
Time and again
You tell me
It wont end
But your kiss
Gives your goodbye

Chorus
Time and again
Time and again
Time and again
You lied to me
Time and again
Time and again
Time and again
Like I cant see

Time and again
You give me
A part of you
Time and again
You tell lies
Time and again
You tell me
We aint through
But I see the
Lies in your eyes

Chorus

Time and again
You leave me
To my tears
Time and again
Wipe them away
Time and again
I feel that
I’ll beat back my fears
But I need you
Another day

Chorus

Hold on tight to your dreams

Hold on tight to your dreams
Hold on tight to your dreams
Whenever others get you down
Wear a smile don’t wear a frown
Hold on tight to your dreams

Hold on tight to your heart
Hold on tight to your heart
Whenever others get the breaks
Just keep on don’t feel the ache
Hold on tight to your heart

Hold on tight to yourself
Hold on tight to yourself
Whenever others give you pain
Remember you will win again
Hold on tight to yourself

Hold on tight to your dreams
Hold on tight to your dreams
Whenever others get you down
Wear a smile don’t wear a frown
Hold on tight to your dreams

Walk with me

Walk with me in the morning
Walk with me through the fears
Walk with me hear me calling
Walk with me through the years

Talk with me through your dark times
Talk with me through the light
Talk with me in the sunshine
Talk with me through the night

Stay with me through the nightime
Stay with me through the fears
Stay with me say you’ll be mine
Stay with me through the years

Live with me through my life time
Live with me through my life
Live with me make the sunshine
Live with me be my wife

Singing in the sun rise on the streets of SoHo

I only met you
Late last night
But now it seems
Things are goin right
Today we walked
And you know
Singing in the sun rise
On the streets of SoHo

The city streets
Were very still
And we had
Some time to kill
I didn’t want
You to go
Singing in the sun rise
On the streets of SoHo

So now we part
But not for long
I’ve got your number
I know your song
We’ll sing again
Long way to go
Singing in the sun rise
On the streets of SoHo

I’ve seen

I’ve seen
The whole world stop for a minute
I’ve seen
The night time turn into day
I’ve seen
A life time turn to the infinite
I’ve seen life come and love go away

Chorus
But I hold onto my dream
And try to go on living
I’m not what I seem
And I’m not forgiving

I’ve seen
People all turn to killing
I’ve seen
A man who walked on the moon
I’ve seen
The oppressed turn to the willing
I’ve seen
Death when it comes to soon

I’ve seen
The love light die your eye
I’ve seen
The hope die in my heart
I’ve seen
The truthful tell the big lie
I’ve seen
How we grow far apart

There she goes

There she goes
Like the world could never end
Think she knows?
I used to be her friend
And now the days pass by me
I want someone to try me
I have a need inside me
But they’ll never know

Here I go
I’m like a dead man walking
So it grows and see them talking
And now I see it dying
My love was not worth trying
So no more alibying
And they’ll never know

Seems I know
Did I know all along
Is it true
Where did it all go wrong
I knew that love was sweet
I fell at your feet
But now I know I’m beat
And you’ll never know
And you’ll never know

The flowers die

The flowers die
And petals fall
The shadows flicker
On the wall
I thought that I
Had got it all
Then you went away

The birds fly south
The summer dies
Love light flickers
In your blue eyes
I heard again
Your sweet sweet lies
Then you went away

The leaves turn brown
And then they fall
I thought that I
Had got it all
I gave my love
My heart and soul
And then you went away

Song for George W.B.

I believe in father Christmas
I believe in Robin Hood
I believe in snowy winters
I believe in doing good
I believe in all that’s holy
I believe what I see is true
I believe in many things
But I don’t believe in you

I believe in love my neighbour
I believe in love always
I believe in giving kindness
I believe in golden days
I believe in joys of giving
I believe each day is new
I believe in joys of living
But I don’t believe in you

I believe in old Walt Disney
I believe in Donald Duck
I believe in Tom and Jerry
I believe we all need luck
I believe in many things
I believe I know whats true
I believe that you’re a liar
And I don’t believe in you – George

Flyaway

Flyaway
Just flyaway
Fly away with me
Fly away
Come fly away
Set your spirit free

I know the chains have held you
Kept you in your place
But now the time has come to fly
See it in my face
No time to stand thinking
Take your chance right now
Come away with me tonight
I will show you how

I see the fear infect you
But you must slip your chain
For all that we can ever know
The chance may not come again
Put your trust in me now
Put your hand in mine
Fly away just fly away
To a better place and time

Learn to trust in feelings
Learn to trust in me
Learn to think for yourself
And set your spirit free
Let your spirit soar away
Let your spirit, fly
Stay with me till break of day
I’ll love you till I die

Fade away

Chorus
Fade away
Fade to grey
Another day
You cant stay
Fade away
Fade away
Fade to grey
Fade away

You had your time
Now its all gone
You were mine
But I was wrong
You didn’t want
Me to stay
Now just hear
What I say

Chorus

You had the past
The future’s mine
You didn’t last
You lost the time
And now its you
Who’ll go away
So no don’t stop
Cause you can’t stay

Chorus

You had the best
And that was me
So keep the rest
Cos now I’m free
So don’t expect
Another day
Cos your neglect
Drove me away

Breakfast in Hollywood

Breakfast in Hollywood
Lunch in del Rey
Dinner in Malibu
But I don’t want to stay
Whilst you are not here
What use is the fame
Each night the fear
Each night the pain

Walking in Venice
Swim in the sea
Watching the palm trees
Waving back at me
Stroll by the Ocean
Night at the Bowl
Without you here
I’m nothing at all

Wont you come over
Fly out today
Meet me at sun rise
Out on the bay
Life is so empty
With nobody here
No one to love me
No one to hear

You’re the best

You’re the best
You’re the best
You’re the best
You’re the best
You’re the best
Yes you are
You’re the best
You’re the best
You’re the best
You’re the best
Better than all the rest

I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you
Yes I do
I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you
You know my love is true

I’m the one
I’m the one
I’m the one
I’m the one
I’m the one
The one just for you
I’m the one
I’m the one
I’m the one
I’m the one
And you know its true

Be mine
Be mine
Be mine
Be mine
Till the end of time
Be mine
Be mine
Be mine
Be mine
Just give me a sign

In my dreams I’m a cowboy

In my dreams I’m a cowboy
Riding out on the plain
Always searching for you
Will I see you again
Searching always searching
Each city town and state
Searching always searching
Along the inter state

In my dreams I’m a soldier
Fighting a lost war
Always searching for you
Behind every door
Searching always searching
Each shattered house I see
Searching always searching
To bring you back to me

In my dreams I’m a drifter
Careless of my fate
Will I ever find you
Will I be too late
Searching always searching
Though the bound’ries have been crossed
Searching always searching
But inside I know you’re lost
Inside I know you’re lost

Born again

In the dark night of the soul
I died a million deaths
In the cold morning light
I drew my own last breath
In the cold writers gloom
As the fading embers die
I’m alone in my room
And I start to cry

Chorus
Born again
Born again
With you I’m born again
Born again
Born again
I know I’m born again

In the sunset of my days
I faded into night
I never new the way
To tell wrong from the right
As the last glimmer died
And the sun sank from the sky
I knew that I had lied
But I didn’t understand why

But now I see the dawn
Hope lights every room
Shadows chased away
No more smothering gloom
Now I can see the light
That shines from your face
I know this love is right
I know peace in this place

Just for you

My father
Said to me
Just relax
Let it be
Girls will come
Girls will go
They’ll come a time
When you will know

Chorus
And all the time
That I grew
I was waiting just for you

Fathers words
Come back to me
Did I listen did I see
Chased the girls
Chased the sun
Had myself
Loads of fun

Then one day
I saw you
Didn’t think
Nothing new
But you stayed
Stayed by me
Till one day
I learnt to see

Now I see
He was right
Hold you each
And every night
Stay by me
Till end of time
I’ll be yours
You be mine

All

All the lies
All the loving
All the cheating
All the hate
All the best
Of me is leaving
Leaving now
Before too late

All the days
All the nights
All the ways
All the sights
All the fight
In me has gone
This affair
Has run too long

All the hopes
All the dreams
All the drama
All the screams
All the time
You were not true
You should know
That I loved you

All the good
All the bad
All the fun
We ever had
All is gone
Gone away
And like my love
I’ll go away

In the quiet of my lonely room

In the quiet of my lonely room
I sit every night
And all the thoughts that fill my dreams
Cry to see the light
And every dream is filled with you
I wonder where you’ve gone
I see your face every day
Your with me all night long

It’s two long years since you left
But you never left my heart
Two long years when you and I
Have lived our lives apart
Has it now come to closing
Shall we let it slip away
Have all the things I meant to you
Just melted in the day
