The Year of the Snake

Had a little trouble with myself
I'm kinda lost sometimes
But your lovin' pulls me through
You make it all worthwhile

Found my way back home to you
For the millionth time
In the land where they fear God
Somehow it just feels fine

You can say thirteen is a bad luck sign
Can call it what you want

The year of the snake gave me life
It gave me death, gave me love without regret
The year of the snake gave me life
It gave me death, to remember and forget

Don't need a compass or a guide
I will find you blind
Like the moon you keep pulling me
Like the water and the tides

We're together like virtue and vice
It's a bond for life
We took the 8 for infinity
Got the gold and let it shine

You can say thirteen is a bad luck sign
Can call it what you want

The year of the snake gave me life
It gave me death, gave me love without regret
The year of the snake gave me life
It gave me death, to remember and forget

Fallen King

It's the red, white and blue ripped apart
A sour memory on the tip of your tongue

What was it all about
Where did it all go wrong
Or has this been this way all along

A bigger gap growing day by day
We kinda lost it somewhere along the way

All hail a fallen king
When kingdoms fall a new one rises again
All hail a fallen king
When kingdoms fall we're blaming everything but ourselves

When all the weapons are down, hands are high
Castles burned down to the ground
They claimed they fought for glory of the righteous men
But they know they were wrong, oh so wrong

A barren ground needs a fertile plan
So we can start all over again

All hail a fallen king
When kingdoms fall a new one rises again
All hail a fallen king
When kingdoms fall we're blaming everything but ourselves

Stars Align

Love is like money
You never have enough
Some think you can buy it
But the real stuff is hard to find

Trust is like a good wine
It should take a lot of time
But it can taste so bitter
When you thought the grapes were ripe

What does it take to find
What does it take to find
What does it take to find, find, find
To find a night where the stars align

Hope is like a mountain
From below too steep to climb
At the top the view is breathtaking
The persistence made you climb so high

What does it take to find
What does it take to find
What does it take to find, find, find
To find a night where the stars align

What does it take to find
What does it take to find
What does it take to find, find, find
To find a night where the stars align

Next Night Flight

Don't forget your overcoat
We're already here too long
We're on the move through countryside

No time for hesitation
Oh, don't you keep me waiting
We gotta move into the night

It's a rush, but lonely feeling
Fidget, agitation
A discomfort being here, alright

Let's take the next night flight and leave
Let's run and be free

I know I ask too much
But what I want from you
Is take my hand and come with me

It's unconditional
I know it can come true
Let's love, hope and belief

And take the next night flight and leave
Let's run and be free
Let's take the next night flight and leave
Come on and run with me

Come get your overcoat
We're already here too long
We're on the move through the countryside

No time for hesitation
Don't you keep me waiting
We gotta move into the night

It's a rush, but lonely feeling
Fidget, agitation
A discomfort being here, alright

Let's take the next night flight and leave
Oh, come on and run with me

Stop anticipating
Avoid what we’re delaying
It's not that we have got all night

Don’t you take too long
Leave your things and just come on
We're running out of time

I know I ask too much
But what I want from you
Is take my hand and come with me

It's unconditional
I know it can come true
Let's love, hope and belief

And take the next night flight and leave
Let's run and be free
Let's take the next night flight and leave
Come on and run with me

Let's run and be free
Let's fly in the night
Come on and be free

Honey South

I got a real sweet honey, waiting for me down South
I got a real sweet honey, waiting for me down South
She gives me real fine lovin', like a junkie I can't do without

Well, she's ready for me every night and day
Well, she's ready for me every night and day
She makes me blush sometimes, I forget what I wanted to say
She’s gets me high in the morning, I'll forget who I am
Love drunk in the evening, shows me I am her man
I got a real sweet honey, waiting for me down South
She gives me real fine lovin', like a junkie I can't do without

Ooh honey south
Ooh honey south
Ooh honey south

She's my little navigator, guiding me through life
She's my little navigator, guiding me through life
She is cool as a mother, but a devil in the night

She makes me hot in the winter, cool in the sun
Blowing me kisses in spring, summer, autumn
She's a real sweet honey, waiting for me down South
She gives me real fine lovin', like a junkie I can't do without

Ooh honey south
Ooh honey south
Ooh honey south

I got a real sweet honey, waiting for me down south, yes I do!
I got a real sweet honey, waiting for me down south
She gives me real fine lovin', like a junkie I can't do without

Well, she's ready for me every night and day
Well, she's ready for me every night and day
She makes me blush sometimes, I forget what I wanted to say

She's gets me high in the morning, I'll forget who I am
Love drunk in the evening, shows me I am her man
I got a real sweet honey waiting, for me down south
She give’s me real fine lovin', like a junkie I can't do without

Ooh honey south
Ooh honey south
Ooh honey south

Bo-utiful

Fight like the Hurricane
Dance like a butterfly
Sting like a bee
Gentle as a baby

Act like you're innocent
In and out of trouble
Romantic Valentino
Hiding all your sorrow

You were Bo-utiful
In your own magic way
You were Bo-utiful
And no one, no, no one could take that away

Riding like a Brando
Crazy as a Hopper
Easy as a rider
No one could stop you

Blood, sweat and tears
You gave it all your heart and soul
No one could know
That it was your last show

You were Bo-utiful
In your own magic way
You were Bo-utiful
And no one, no, no one could take that away

With the view of the city
You tasted the bullet
Everyone gathered as they carried your body down
Down in to the ground

Fight like the Hurricane
Dance like a butterfly
Sting like a bee
Gentle as a baby

You were Bo-utiful
In your own magic way
You were Bo-utiful
And no one, no, no one could take that away

Over het album

Het album Pressure Makes Diamonds van Danny Vera bestaat uit twee delen. Het eerste deel Pressure Makes Diamonds 1 - The Year Of The Snake kwam uit op 9 november 2018. Het tweede deel Pressure Makes Diamonds 2 - Pompadour Hippie kwam uit op 15 februari 2019. Vera’s plaat, is wederom geproduceerd door Frans Hagenaars. Vera: 'Niet in Nashville, maar in Wisseloord in Hilversum, analoog op tape, inclusief ruis. Je hoort de band soms nog lopen na een nummer. Dat vind ik zo mooi.' Een deel van het geheim van het krachtige geluid ligt in de capabele handen van Vance Powell, die wel opereert van het country-Mekka. Op Pressure Makes Diamonds 2 - Pompadour Hippie staan gloedvolle Americana ballads die ontroeren en onthaasten. Veel prachtig gearrangeerde strijkers, blazers en de gloedvolle vocalen van Danny Vera.
