Biography

I have been priviliged to have amazing sap to flow in the last 5 years during which time I have written 800 - 1000 songs and poems.
My passion and heartbeat is life and the many challenges we all face from the cradle to the grave.Accompanied to this is the mystery of what lies beyond the grave and the determination to find security in this before crossing that gulf.It is thus that I have reached the conviction that the Christian way is the only way to gain this security.
In this light , I hope you will find these songs as a journey - of discovery and that after walking the journey , you will reach the same conclusions as I have about what is truth and reality.
I trust you will enjoy what I have to offer and please refer to my other site www.soundclick.com/davideast where you can hear a cross-range of my stuff - 550+ songs.

Most of these songs are available for licencing , so if you come across material you would like to use , please e mail me directly at: davideastsongs@gmail.com .

Lyrics

Calm Harbor

Written By: David East

CALM HARBOR

1.TOSSED VESSEL OUT AT SEA , REFUGE FOR MY PLIGHT CAN BE

WHERE WINDS BILLOW SAILS AND THE WAVES TOWER ME

TURN EYES TO THE SHORE , TROUBLE WILL I KNOW NO MORE

FOR THERE IS A LIGHT I CAN SEE

CHORUS

CALM HARBOR THERE ABIDING , REFUGE FOR MY SPIRIT FINDING

WHERE NONE OF LIFE'S WINDS AND LIFE'S WAVES FOLLOW ME

CALM HARBOR OF MY SOUL , DAILY LET MY SPIRIT FLOW IN

FOR THERE I HAVE REST IN THEE

2.WHEN OFT I LEAVE THE LAND AND HEAD INTO LIFE'S ENDLESS SPANS

WHERE TEMPESTS OF LIFE AND THE SOUL CAN'T AGREE

I KNOW WHERE MY HEART LIES , SHELTERED ON SHORES STABLE SIDE'S

IN HIS PRESENCE THERE IS TRUE HARMONY

CHORUS

BRIDGE

WE NEED TO FIND THE HAVEN OF PEACE

THE KEY TO HAPPINESS IS IN REACH

OUR STABLE SHORE IS OUT THERE SOMEWHERE

BEYOND THE PAIN AND SORROW

THERE LIES A NEW TOMORROW

CHORUS

Survival

Written By: David East

SURVIVAL – THAT’S WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT

1.TO TRY UPHOLD OUR DIGNITY AND OUR HIGHER HUMANITY
AND HOPING THAT OUR PROBLEMS WILL SOON END
RETAIN MORAL INTEGRITY AND FINANCIAL SECURITY
FOR THE UNFORESEEN THAT LIES AROUND THE BEND
CHORUS
SURVIVAL – THAT’S WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT
TO HAVE ENOUGH TO PAY OUR WAY
AND HOPING THAT OUR HEALTH WILL STAY
AND MEET OUR BILLS AT EACH MONTH END
AND SAVE FOR OUR RETIREMENT
SURVIVAL – THAT’S WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT
2.AND LIFE THE UNEXPECTED TRAP THAT IS JUST WAITING TO HAPPEN
OUT OF THE BLUE TO CATCH US BY SURPRISE
EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED , GRAP HOLD OF INFORMATION
THAT COULD HELP US WHEN WE ARE NEEDING IT
CHORUS
BRIDGE
AND WHAT IS HOT WILL BECOME COLD
AND WHAT IS NEW WILL BECOME OLD
AND WHAT MAY BE IMPORTANT NOW
MAY NOT BE SO IN THE FUTURE
CHORUS

Fast Forward

Written By: David East

FAST FORWARD = RAPID REWIND

CHORUS

'CAUSE FAST FORWARD EQUALS RAPID REWIND

ONE STEP FORWARD AND BACK TWO

OFTEN PROGRESS EQUALS REGRESS

AND SUCCESS CAN RUIN YOU

1,NICE CAR BUT BAD EXHAUST FUMES , WORKAHOLIC BUT NO LIFE

CONGRATULATIONS WITH YOUR NEW GIRLFRIEND

A PITY THO' THAT YOU LOST YOUR WIFE

CHORUS

2.NICE BIG HOUSE BUT , BIGGER CLEAN UP , NEW PROMOTION , BUT MORE STRESS

NICE BIG GARDEN , BUT MORE MOWING

SO WHAT IS BETTER , MORE OR LESS?

CHORUS

3.BIGGER FACTORIES , BUT MORE POLLUTION

AND SO MORE FLOODING AND HURRICANES

SO WE'VE MORE JOBS , BUT THEN MORE PROBLEMS

SO WHO NOW CAN TAKE THE BLAME?

CHORUS

Run like the Wind

Written By: David East

RUN LIKE THE WIND

CHORUS
RUN , RUN LIKE THE WIND , FLY , FLY LIKE A BIRD
SO , FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS TO PLACES UNHEARD
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF , LOOK UP FOR YOUR HELP
YOUR TIME WILL ARRIVE IN THE SWEET BYE AND BYE

1.THE SKY IS THE LIMIT , HEAD BEYOND THE SUMMIT
STRIVE HARD FOR SUCCESS IN THE PLAN YOU COMMIT TO
BE SURE OF YOUR PURPOSE , KNOW WHAT TO BELIEVE IN
KEEP YOUR MIND IN FOCUS AND HOLD TO THE MISSION

CHORUS....AND RUN

2.FAILURE IS QUITE OFTEN , YOUR STEP TO SUCCESS
BUT YOU , YOU MUST BE PATIENT , POSSESSING STRENGTH AND COURAGE
NOTHING IS ACHIEVED , WITHOUT SWEAT ON YOUR BROW
SO , TAKE UP THE CHALLENGE , YOUR MOMENT IS NOW

CHORUS.....AND RUN

A Nice Sunny Day in the UK

Written By: David Easthouse

IT’S A NICE SUNNY DAY IN THE UK

1. The Winter chill is over now , that we survived it who knows how?

The sun had taken leave it seems, leaving us so cold and freezing

And suddenly it showed it’s face and spread it’s rays around the place

Chorus

The old grey clouds have rolled away – what can we say?

And it’s a nice sunny day in the UK

2. That it has to be oh so long since we last saw the happy sun

The days are short , the nights are long

Whats’ wrong is right , whats right is wrong

But then it came out of the blue – the happy rays came shining thru

Chorus

And we were heading off to Spain

And all day long we just complained

We pushed the temp gauge up 15

Degrees in our central heating

And dreamed that we lay on the beach

In San Tropez or Miami

And then woke up and hey , ho , hey

Chorus

The grey clouds have rolled away

And it’s a nice sunny day in the UK
