The only single release from Dan's first album called "Ghosts".


My old soul has carried from this watering hole
A fish for you and berries that you can fix in your home

When I awoke against the grain I knew
The closer I was getting
The longer your thread strung me to you
That I've been wasting matches with my time
It's the hardest pill to swallow in my mind

When I awoke to pouring rain I knew
The notes that I was playing
Were equally desolate and clung to you
That I've been sailing bottles down the line
And the notes the shore returned were only mine

You're getting away from me
Like a pendulum swings I don't know where I go
If you're the kindest one, you're also the hardest to win
But this shouldn't be a contest no, this shouldn't be

Do you even know why I loved you so?
