The Dan Gordon Band

The Dan Gordon Band

BandRockFunk

Dollops of rock and roll, with splashes of funk and a dash of blues. Cly eyes Chip, who delivers the beat. Eric's funky bass rides the blusey wave to Cly's and Nathan's croon. Their axes sending tremors through the room, the music delivered. It's done.

Lyrics

We're All to Blame

Written By: Dan Gordon

WE'RE ALL TO BLAME

The days have gone
Gone by too fast
And I don't want to be the last
The first, to say goodbye and hello
To you

And it's tough
Being be the one
Being left behind
While I watch
Waiting in that line

Step in my shoes let's see
How far you go
Walking for mile and miles

CHORUS

I can't stand being the one
To have to watch you go
I know you can feel the pain
No one has to know about
And in the end
We're all to blame

And the thought
Of having the choice
To leave it all again
Brings back some memories
Of way back when
I saw her face
Saying goodbye
For the very last time

CHORUS

I can't stand being the one
To have to watch you go
I know you can feel the pain
No one has to know about
And in the end
We're all to blame

And We all dream
Of being the one
To leave it all behind
Or be the one
Being left this time

CHORUS

And I can't stand being the one
To have to watch you go
I know you can feel the pain
No one has to know about
And in the end we're all
In the end we're all
To blame

Written By: Dan Gordon

I can say
That I'm impressed with your
Antics tonight, and I wish
You could kiss me this night
And promise me it won't be the last . . .

She throws me the casual small talk
I reassure her so called obscurities
Are nothing more but insecurities

And I must say
That it's sexy when you say my name
But your eyes are your call to fame
So hold that smile And you'll
Take my breath away From me

I can't stand the distance from you
And I can't stand the distance from you
I can't stand the distance now
As long as I think of you
Of you

Ooooh Oooooooh

Yes, she makes smile
And I guess that's she's got me thinking
That's she's just pure golden

And she's just the kind of girl
I'd travel across the world
Just so, so I could be with her
So I could be with her
So I could be with her

I can't stand the distance from you
And I can't stand the distance from you
I can't stand the distance now

As long as I
As long as I
Think of you

I Can Feel It

Written By: Dan Gordon

The ones that count are too damn far
And the closer ones don't meet that bar
And all I need
Is for you to come close, come closer to my bed
And get you outside of my head
You want this, too
And give me time to paint a scene with my words
Let you chew on that thought
Till your heart hurts

And this distance thing is killing me
And I wish it didn't have to be . . . like this

I can feel your words retain
The sexy taste of sensual play
I will let the impact hit
I can feel it
I can feel it

I can feel your words retain
The sexy taste of sensual play
I will let the impact hit
I can feel it
I can feel it

I can feel your words retain
The sexy taste of sensual play
I will let the impact hit
I can feel it
I can feel it

Girl I know exactly what you need
Just one thing and that's me,
So lets fix this situation
Give me the place I'll give the time
We'll make it right
Mmmmmm
A couple of miles away from me
Sure don't help changing I to we

An this distance thing is killing me
And I wish it didn't have to be . . . like this

I can feel your words retain
The sexy taste of sensual play
I will let the impact hit
I can feel it
I can feel it

I can feel your words retain
The sexy taste of sensual play
I will let the impact hit
I can feel it
I can feel it

I can feel your words retain
The sexy taste of sensual play
I will let the impact hit
I can feel it
I can feel it

Oh, we can't get there soon enough
And I just want to feel you in my arms
Time is working against us
I need you closer now
And I want this bad
'Cause I just need reality
So be here now with me

I can feel your words retain
The sexy taste of sensual play
I will let the impact hit
I can feel it
I can feel it

I can feel your words retain
The sexy taste of sensual play
I will let the impact hit
I can feel it
I can feel it

I can feel your words retain
The sexy taste of sensual play
I will let the impact hit
I can feel it
I can feel it
