This Friday, June 22nd, from 7-10pm, Dave will perform a solo acoustic set at Tongue's Protein Bar and Chill Lounge at 2958 Biddle, Wyandotte (next to Nana's Kitchen). Tongue's has a wide selection of Zingerman's coffee drinks and juices, and is a very cool place to hang with friends. Dave has some special guests coming to sing and play cover and original music. Come out and join us for a relaxing evening of great music!
I've just completed this arrangement for my newest song, "Step Aside." It's about leaving when you don't know where you're going. More songs on the Music page.
Letting go of all the love you never knew
It’s not easy now, is it?
You know it’s not what you want but you don’t know what you do
You just kind of go with it.
Too old to just get up and start again,
Too young to imagine the rest of your life with him,
The money, the home, the pets, the friends you pull in half,
The job, the garden, the kids you never had.
Letting go it takes a lot of time to think it through
So you don’t regret it.
The pull of desire leads you heart away but still you stay
Don’t know if you should let it.
Mondays anxious fears kept you up too late
By Wednesday it’s not so bad, you’ll just accept your fate
Friday decide to take a ride and leave the state,
But then you wait,
Push past the inertia to move.
Draw your breath, forget what you have to lose.
It feels so slow when you first fight gravity’s pull
When you’re so uncertain of your final goal.
But you find the strength,
And you break the past,
Close your eyes,
And step aside.
The excellent downer from OK Computer played on the piano. Enjoy.
On February 26, I performed with the Southern Great Lakes Symphony in their Downriver Idol competition. 3 finalists performed with the symphony, and I was selected as the 2012 Downriver Idol! I will be performing with the symphony as a featured soloist next season. Check out these articles about the Downriver Idol competition:
