Biography

COMING UP FROM THE ROCK EN ESPAÑOL SCENE IN MEXICO WITH HIS BAND LA GUSANA CIEGA, KAFKA JONES IS A WORLD APART. AFTER 11 YEARS , FOR STUDIO RECORDS AND ONE LIVE ALBUM, DANIEL GUTIERREZ HAS BROUGHT FORTH A FOLK PROYECT THAT COMBINES HIS EXPERIENCE AS A COMPOSER AND PERFORMER IN THE ROCK SCENE WITH HIS SENSIBILITY AND LOVE FOR FOLK MUSIC. WHILE TOURING AND RECORDING WITH LA GUSANA CIEGA, DANIEL GUTIERREZ WOULD BE BEHIND THE STAGE WRITING THESE SONGS IN ENGLISH JUST FOR THE LOVE OF DOING IT. WITH TIME, KAFKA JONES CAME TO LIFE GIVING ALL OF THESE SONGS A PHISICALL SPACE AND AN OPORTUNITY FOR OTHERS TO LISTEN IN. STANDING ALONE ON STAGE WITH HIS GUITAR IS A ROLLER COASTER RIDE COMPARED TO PLAYING WITH A BAND AND MAKES FOR A VERY INTIMATE OPEN HEARTED SHOW. KAFKA JONES RELEASED THE ALBUM TEN MINUS ONE THIS YEAR AND IS PLANING ON RECORDING A SECOND ALBUM IN JANUARY 2008.

Lyrics

SUN FLOWER

Written By: DANIEL GUTIERREZ

SUN FLOWER

I WONDER IF ILL SLEEP TONIGHT
UNDER YOUR PILLOW
REST, REST YOUR SILLY MIND
AND DREAM, DREAM YOU’RE AWAKE WITH ME

IT’S TIME FOR ME TO SAY GOODNIGHT
AND THROW YOU ONE LAST KISS GOOD BY
ILL HOPE TO SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS
OUR LOVERS DEN OUR SECRET HIDEAWAY

I KNOW THAT ILL BE WAITING FOR YOU

CLOSE MY WEARY EYES AND LOOK INTO YOUR GARDEN
SUNFLOWER IVE BEEN CRAZY FOR YOU SO LONG

I KNOW THAT ILL BE WAITING FOR YOU

SLIP INSIDE YOUR BED TONIGHT
LET DOWN YOUR WAVY LIGHT
ILL CLIME THIS GARDEN TOWER
AND KISS, KISS MY LOVERS EYES

SOME DAYS WHEN YOU’RE AWAY
I FALL INTO THE SHADOWS
I LOOK AROUND FOR YOUR EMBRACE
I FIND YOU SMILLING, SHINING BEAUTIFUL

I DONT MIND

Written By: DANIEL GUTIERREZ

I DONT MIND

IM NOT DEAD IM JUST WAITING IN BED FOR
ANOTHER INJECTION OF YOU
HOLLOW MESSEGES, LOW CONVERSATIONS
OF FARAWAY DEATH OF THE VAIN

ITS THE SAME EVERY TIME YOU`RE AWAY
FLYS A BULLET THAS AIMED AT MY HEAD

IM OK I CAN BLOW MY MIND

ITS BEEN HOURS SINCE YOUR OPENING STATEMENT
IM READY TO GIVE YOU MY HEART
IT WAS BORKEN A LONG TIME AGO IT WAS MENDED
WITH RUBBER AND SOUL

NOW THE PUZZLE IS PLACED ON THE TABLE,
THE PIECES ARE UNDER YOUR COAT

TAKE YOUR TIME THINK IT OVER

I DONT MIND

NIGHT TURNS INTO DAY

Written By: DANIEL GUTIERREZ


NIGHT TURNS INTO DAY

TONIGHT YOU ARE MY LOVER
MY GOLDEN BIRD MY SWEET DESIRE
BEFORE I WAS YOUR LOVER
MY HEART WAS BROKEN TORN APART
I KNOW IM COLD
I KNOW IM SCARED
AND I WONDER IF YOU´LL RUN AWAY

LOVERS DONT PROMISE
WORDS ARE SO QUICK TO FADE AWAY
SO IF YOU LOVE ME JUST
STAY UNTIL THE NIGHT TURNS INTO DAY

MY BROKEN CUP YOU ARE FILLING UP
WITH SUMER SKYS AND STARS
AS SUCH YOUR EYES GROW WILD

TENDER IS YOUR SILENT PROMISE
SOFT CONFUSION IS YOUR NAME

I KNOW IM COLD
I KNOW IM SCARED
AND I WONDER IF YOU`LL RUN AWAY

LOVERS DONT PROMISE
WORDS ARE SO QUICK TO FADE AWAY
SO IF YOU LOVE ME JUST
STAY UNTIL THE NIGHT TURNS INTO DAY

BECAUSE, IF YOU SAY TOMORROW
TOMORROW GOES AWAY
BUT IF YOU STAY TOMORROW
TONIGHT WILL BE OK
