Biography

"I've been playing piano and guitar for most of my life. My family is tremendously musical and I have been performing as a professional and semi-professional singer for many years. I have written more than 600 songs of many different styles including rock, country, blues, jazz, and soul. My main influences were Elton John, Eric Clapton, Billy Joel, Peter Frampton, Pink Floyd and the Doobie Brothers. These days I find myself more immersed in my own music than that of others."

Lyrics

Thats What You Do

Written By: Damian Black

THAT’S WHAT YOU DO

VERSE 1

ON A CLOUDY DAY…YOU CAN WATCH THE RAIN FALLING DOWN

ANY OTHER DAY…..YOU CAN STAND FOR HOURS

CERTAIN EVENTS THEY DID CONSPIRE…TRIED TO BREAK MY HEART

BUT I SURVIVED….THAT’S WHAT YOU DO

VERSE 2

………..OH…….DON’T FORCE ME TO REMEMBER

………..OH…….DON’T ASK ME TO RECALL

CERTAIN PEOPLE DID CONSPIRE…..TRIED TO BREAK MY HEART

BUT I SURVIVED….THAT’S WHAT YOU DO

CHORUS

THAT’S WHAT YOU DO

THAT’S WHAT YOU DO

YEH I SURVIVED………………………..THAT’S WHAT YOU DO

VERSE 3

HERE I AM TONIGHT..WITH ALL THOSE THINGS YOU CAN’T DESTROY

LIKE EVERY OTHER NIGHT…..I HAVE TRIED [WILL TRY] TO GIVE YOU JOY

EVENTS AND PEOPLE DID CONSPIRE….. TRIED TO BREAK MY HEART

BUT I SURVIVED……………… THAT’S WHAT YOU DO

CHORUS

TAG: YEAH I SURVIVED……..YEAH I SURVIVED…….YEAH I SURVIVED

THAT’S WHAT YOU DO……………………

GOODNIGHT

CHORUS
WON’T YOU SAY GOODNIGHT WHEN EVERYONE HAS GONE
WON’T YOU SAY, GOODNIGHT TO ME?
WON’T YOU SAY GOODNIGHT WHEN EVERYONE HAS GONE
WON’T YOU SAY GOODNIGHT, TO ME?

IT ALL SEEMS TO GO SO FAST, WHEN EVER YOU’RE NEAR
I WONDER HOW LONG IT LASTS, TO CONQUER MY FEARS

CHORUS

VERSE 2

I WONDER HOW FAR I’D GO, TO BE WITH YOU NOW

I WONDER COULD LIGHTNIN’ STRIKE, TO END IT ALL NOW

CHORUS

OH…….OH………OH………..OH………..OH………..OH……..OH……

WON’T YOU SAY, GOODNIGHT………TO ME.

The Ballad of Me and You

Written By: Damian Black

THE BALLAD OF ME AND YOU

VERSE 1

YOU TALK…….IN SUCH A WAY THAT I

WANT TO RUN AWAY….AND NEVER FEEL YOUR LOVE

YOU SMILE….IN SUCH A WAY THAT I

WANT TO RUN AWAY……AND NEVER FEEL YOUR LOVE

CHORUS

AND ALL THE DAYS HAVE BEEN SO LONG

BUT I’M STRONGER THAN I KNEW

AND ALL MY DREAMS ARE COMING TRUE

THAT’S THE BALLAD OF ME AND YOU

VERSE 2

YOU SEE………..IT’S NOT MUCH OF A PLAN

THAT I SHOULD DISAPPEAR…….INTO ANOTHER LAND

YOU’LL SEE…….IT’S NOT THAT I DON’T CARE

FOR SOME KIND OF AFFAIR

BUT HOW LONG COULD THAT LAST?

CHORUS
SHORT INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

TAG:

AND ALL…. MY DREAMS ARE COMING TRUE………

THAT’S THE BALLAD OF ME….AND YOU……..

THE BALLAD OF ME AND YOU.

So Much

Written By: Damian Black

SO MUCH

VERSE 1
STOP THE LIGHTS

STOP THE GAME

MUST IT ALWAYS END THE SAME

TELL YOU NOW, TELL YOU HERE

AT THIS MOMENT, SO VERY CLEAR

BRIDGE
WHEN I FIRST MET YOU THERE WAS SUCH AN AIR

DIDN’T KNOW JUST WHERE TO LOOK

WHEN I SAW YOU, IT WAS ALL SO REAL

DIDN’T KNOW JUST WHAT TO SAY

CHORUS
YOU MEAN SO MUCH TO ME…..

YOU MEAN SO MUCH TO ME…..

AND THOUGH I MIGHT NOT BE THE ONE

THAT YOU MIGHT ALWAYS DREAM

YOU MEAN SO MUCH TO ME….

YOU MEAN SO MUCH TO ME….

AND THOUGH I MIGHT NOT MEAN AS MUCH TO YOU

YOU’LL SEE

YOU MEAN SO MUCH TO ME.

VERSE 2
STOP THE RUSH, GIVE ME TIME

SO RARELY CAN I, SPEAK MY MIND

WHEN I FIRST MET YOU

I KNEW YOUR FACE, I KNEW YOUR EYES

I’D FOUND MY PLACE (BRIDGE; CHORUS)

Lonely Winter's Day

Written By: Damian Black

LONELY WINTER’S DAY

VERSE 1

I THOUGHT THAT YOU MIGHT COME AND VISIT

JUST TO SEE HOW I’D BEEN

THOUGHT YOU’D KNOCK UPON MY DOOR ONE DAY

JUST TO SEE WHAT MIGHT MIGHT HAVE BEEN

VERSE 2

I THOUGHT LOVE WOULD NEVER LEAVE ME

I THOUGHT LOVE WAS HERE TO STAY

I THOUGHT MY LOVE WOULD NOT DECEIVE ME

I THOUGHT MY LOVE WOULD NEVER STRAY

BRIDGE

I THOUGHT THAT ALL OF THESE FEELINGS MIGHT SOMEHOW GO AWAY

CHORUS

BUT HERE AM I THIS EVENING

ON A LONELY WINTER’S DAY

VERSE 3

I THOUGHT THIS WORLD COULD NEVER HOLD ME
I THOUGHT THAT ALL OLD THINGS WOULD PASS
I THOUGHT NO GIRL COULD EVER REACH
INTO THIS HEART BEHIND THE GLASS

BRIDGE; CHORUS

Between Movies and Bed

Written By: Damian Black

BETWEEN MOVIES AND BED

VERSE 1

DO YOU KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING?

BECAUSE I DON’T

DO YOU KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING?

BECAUSE I DON’T

BRIDGE

SO MANY LINES RUNNING THROUGH MY HEAD

BETWEEN MOVIES AND BED

TOO MUCH TIME TO NEGOTIATE

TOO MUCH TIME TO SPARE

CHORUS

AND I DON’T CARE FOR THE EVENING

I DON’T CARE FOR THE NIGHT

I DON’T CARE FOR THE EVENING

TONIGHT, TONIGHT, TONIGHT

VERSE 2
USED TO KNOW WHAT WAS HAPPENING
I MADE MY LIFE COME TRUE
NOW I’M SITTING HERE AND WONDERING
WHY I SPENT IT WITH YOU

BRIDGE; CHORUS
