David Baca

BandAlternativeSinger/Songwriter

I have catalog of over 60 original songs. Although I enjoy performing live, I prefer to write & record. I would like to find notable Artists who would like to record these songs. Additionally I am interested in placing music in various types of Film Productions.

Biography

When I was a Kid I was a Cat. When I was a kid I was a Billygoat. The timeline is what we can look back on. Music is in the moment- satisfied to be here. As an Artist, Art Director and Musician I am lucky to have a creative life. Thank you to The Kinks, David Bowie, Lou Reed, Dylan, Bruce Cockburn, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Rush, Alice in Chains, Joe Jackson, Daniel Lanouis and all the others who have inspired me.

I’ll try for you
No one else will do
I’ll try for you
No one else will do

When it’s cold, dark and lonely
When the sun refuse to shine
I think of you only
Then the stars in the sky do shine
Yeah, yeah yeah

I’ll try for you
No one else will do
I’ll try for you
No one else will do

When it’s cold, dark and lonely
When the sun refuse to shine
I think of you only
Then the stars in the sky do shine
Yeah, yeah yeah

I’ll try for you
No one else will do
I’ll try for you
No one else will do

When it’s cold, dark and lonely
When the sun refuse to shine
I think of you only
Then the stars in the sky do shine
Yeah, yeah yeah

I’ll try for you
No one else will do
I’ll try for you
No one else will do

When it’s cold, dark and lonely
When the sun refuse to shine
I think of you only
Then the stars in the sky do shine
Yeah, yeah yeah

Never

Never
Words & Music by David Baca
c.2008

Never
Never in my life has anyone done what you’ve done
And Never
Never in my life has anyone tried so hard

Cause everywhere I go and everyone I see
There’s no one compares to you and me girl
There’s no one like you and me

Never
Never in my life has anyone looked so good to me
And Never
Ever in my life has anyone felt so right for me

Cause everywhere I go and everyone I see
There’s no one compares to you and me girl
There’s no one like you and me

Can’t you see that it’s forever
Yesterday has come and gone
And can’t you see the stormy weather
Can’t decide what to do

I’ll try my best to love you
With everything I have
And if you just look back at me I’ll tell you what I said
But I don’t know what you’ve told
So girl listen to me now
Cause if you look into my eyes
I’ll show you another world

Never
Never in my life has anyone looked so good to me
And Never
Never in my life has anyone felt so right for me

Cause everywhere I go and everyone I see
There’s no one compares to you and me girl
There’s no one like you and me

Flowers

Flowers
Words & Music by David Baca
c. 2008

Like a flower in a garden
A little water, you watch it grow
And like the storm that passes over
When it comes then you know

Don’t hide your eyes from the truth
And take a look at your garden
All of your lies as you watch them grow
Growing like a weed out of control
Into my life and you’re the one who feeds them

So like the bird that keeps on singing
In your mind this song keeps ringing
And like the sea that washes over you and me
There’s walls of glass, tears at last
The flower’s dead and you’re the one that keeps breathing

Once In A While

Once In A While
Words & Music By David Baca c.2008

VERSE:
Once in a while I look back on my life
My mind can see what I’m trying to be
I try so hard to realize my dreams
Keep pushing on gotta keep pushing on yeah

I look to the sky what do I see
There’s birds wings flying over me
I try so hard to realize my dreams
Keep pushing on gotta keep pushing on yeah

CHORUS:
Hold on tight
Hold on tight
Hold on tight to your dreams
Be everything that you are
A rising star, a growing seed
A heart that beats, a soul that bleeds
You came along and sang a song
And when you’re gone
What did you leave behind

VERSE:
Jenny used to be the toughest one
Never backing down from anyone
Then one day someone pulled the trigger and she died

She said she would never die but she let me down
She said she would never die but she let me down
She said she would never die but she let me down
She said she would never die but she let me down

VERSE:
Once in a while I look back on my life
My mind can see what I’m trying to be
I try so hard to realize my dreams
Keep pushing on gotta keep pushing on yeah

I look to the sky what do I see
There’s birds wings flying over me
I try so hard to realize my dreams
Keep pushing on gotta keep pushing on yeah

CHORUS:
Hold on tight
Hold on tight
Hold on tight to your dreams
Be everything that you are
A rising star, a growing seed
A heart that beats, a soul that bleeds
You came along and sang a song
And when you’re gone
What did you leave behind
