Biography

Danny Nova is a world-class vocalist whose music-making abilities cannot be denied. With his four-plus octave vocal range, hitting full voice E notes above high C, this raspy-voiced emerging recording artist would turn the heads of many a famed vocalists such as Steve Perry, Ian Gillian, Robert Plant, Rod Stewart, Joe Turner and Steven Tyler. As a songwriter, Nova is admired for his fine blending of lyrical content with melodic and flowing musical compositions. Notable songwriters, newspaper reporters, radio program directors, and TV producers, consider his lyrical content as seasoned, poised, sensitive and profound with a thin lining of obscurity.

All instrumentation on "Crushing The Stone," was played by Nova except for cello which was played by Peter Lewy and piano/keyboards which were played by Scott Treibitz.

Lyrics

Calamity Heart

Written By: Danny Nova

KISS UP HERE UPON MY FACE CAUSE I WANT TO BE RECEIVER OF YOUR GRACE
TOUCH ME, DONT LET ME FEEL THE COLD
LET’S HAVE ONE MORE SPECIAL MOMENT BEFORE I GO, GO

CALAMITY HEART, TELL ME WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO
MY CALAMITY HEART, I DON’T WANT TO LEAVE HERE WITHOUT YOU

TEARS, THEY RUN DOWN OFF MY FACE
CAUSE I KNOW I HAVE TO LEAVE YOU IN THIS PLACE
PAIN, A THING KNOW SO WELL
DO I HAVE TO FACE THESE FEELINGS, THEY FEEL LIKE HELL, HELL

CALAMITY HEART, TELL ME WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO

MY CALAMITY HEART, I DON’T WANT TO LEAVE HERE WITHOUT YOU
CALAMITY HEART, TELL ME WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO

MY CALAMITY HEART, I DON’T WANT TO LEAVE HERE WITHOUT YOU
SO TELL ME WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO
CAUSE I DON'T WANT TO LEAVE HERE WITHOUT YOU!

Crystal Clear

Written By: Danny Nova

WHEN I FIRST SAW YOUR FACE
I COULD NOT BARE TO TURN AWAY
I KNOW WE’VE BEEN HERE BEFORE
BUT THIS TIME I WON’T RUN OUT THE DOOR
I CAN SEE YOU, YEA YOU’LL BE HERE
CAUSE MY VISION IS CRYSTAL CLEAR

IT’S CRYSTAL CLEAR, AH HUH
CRYSTAL CLEAR, AH AH HUH

WHEN I FIRST KISSED YOUR LIPS
I FELT THE BLOOD RUSH, INTO MY LIPS
THAT PARKING LOT FELT SO FINE
THE PEOPLE WATCHING WE LEFT BEHIND
IN OUR MINDS WE WERE, ALL ALONE
I STILL SEE US, IT’S CRYSTAL CLEAR

IT’S CRYSTAL CLEAR, AH HUH
CRYSTAL CLEAR, AH AH HUH

I CAN’T BE WRONG, THIS VISION IS SO STRONG .................... IT’S CRYSTAL CLEAR

IT’S CRYSTAL CLEAR, AH HUH
CRYSTAL CLEAR, AH AH HUH
IT’S CRYSTAL CLEAR, AH HUH
CRYSTAL CLEAR, AH AH HUH

CLEAR CLEAR CLEAR ..........

BUT EVERYTIME I THINK OF HER, I WANT TO WRITE A SONG
CAUSE EVERYTIME SHE LOOKED MY WAY, SHE REALLY TURNED ME ON!
TURNED ME ON, TURNED ME ON, SHE REALLY TUNRNED ME
