I'm David Shehane. I write songs about life and love. Drawn from both the bliss and pain that come from the events in my life that continuously shape me into who I am. I sing with a passionate expression of emotion which I can show in no other way. My songs are true stories which I gladly share with anyone who will listen. And, hopefully, those who listen will be moved. And share their stories with me.

Lyrics

Abracadabra!

Written By: David Shehane

Hey little girl with the pretty dress on,
Will you dance when you hear this song?
Clap your hands, jump up and down,
Spinning, spinning round-and-round...

Watching you run, fast as you can
Chasing down the Ice Cream Man,
Hey little girl with the pretty dress on,
Will you dance when you hear this song?

And oooooh...how that summer thunder starts to roll.
And oooooh...the sun is setting, I dont want to go.
No I dont want to go

I'm not so tired after all, and I have too much fun with y'all
to go home right away.
You ask "can we swing for a while?"
I swear there's magic in your smile
Don't ever let it fade...away

Now I lay me down to sleep, Deep inside my heart you'll be.
Hey little girl with the pretty dress on,
Will you dance when you hear this song?

and oooooh...How that summer thunder starts to roll.
and oooooh...the sun is setting, I dont want to go.
No, I dont want to go.

Amongst Giants

Written By: David Shehane

I'm restless tonight. Coffee and Nicotine keep me alive,
Or so it may seem. And I can do anything, I can be anything at all...
I feel like a child walking amongst giants. I desperately try not to let it show. I'm ready for anything, and I'm standing tall...

But I'm screaming inside, "somebody save me!"
'Cause once its all over, who's gonna be there to catch me?
If I fall. If I fall down. If I fall...If I hit the ground...

We stay up all night tryin' to get ahead, Its gonna be alright
Remember what Mamma said; "you can do anything, you can be anything at all!" We could get it right, Not be left behind. We could take flight if we just take the time.
We could have it all...

But we're screaming inside "somebody save me!"
Cause once its all over, who's gonna be there to catch me?
If we fall. If we fall down. If we fall. If we hit the ground...

We're all screaming inside, "somebody save me!"
Cause once its all over, who's gonna be there to catch me??
If we fall. If we fall down. If we fall. If we hit the ground...
