Expandable Time

You're so good like sugar
Good like wine
Good for making love all the time

You're so good like sugar
Good like wine
Good for making love all the time

You're so good,
I wish I knew how I could extend
Our expandable time
Our expandable time

I can remember, baby, how it was
Before I met you it just wasn't enough
I felt alone and thought that no one cared
Too sad for words and a waste of time
Drinking wine, oh, wine

You're so good like sugar
Good like wine
Good for making love all the time

You're so good,
I wish I knew how I could extend
Our expandable time
Our expandable time

Those days are gone and now you're finally here
And all the dark clouds seem to disappear
Your body makes me so high all the time
I lose myself in my disordered mind
Tell me why, oh, why

You're so good like sugar
Good like wine
Good for making love all the time

Russian Roulette

Take a breath, take it deep
Calm yourself, she said to me
If you play, you play for keeps
Take the gun and count to three

I'm sweating now, moving slow
No time to think, my turn to go

And you can see my heart beating
You can see it through my chest
And I'm terrified but I'm not leaving
I know I must pass this test
So just pull the trigger

Say a prayer to yourself
Close your eyes
Sometimes it helps
Then I get a scary thought
That he's here, he's never lost

And you can see my heart beating
You can see it through my chest
And I'm terrified but I'm not leaving
I know I must pass this test
So just pull the trigger

Leavin'

When the work is done tomorrow I'll be leavin'
I didn't come to stay but just awhile
I'll think a million thoughts and do some grievin'
About your lovely eyes and tender smile

You have set a fire within my heart a-glowin'
You've truly made a deep mark on my mind
It's a hard and a trying task to think of goin'
When the one I love I know I'll leave behind

But there's many a hill that needs a crossing
There's many places left to see
But I know there's no folks where I'll be going
And no face that will mean as much to me
There's no face that will mean as much to me

When I walk down that long and lonely highway
In my mind you will be walking there with me
But I know sorrow's only travelling my way
'Cause the road will be one way from you to me

But there's many a hill that needs a crossing
There's many places left to see
But I know there's no folks where I'll be going
And no face that will mean as much to me
There's no face that will mean as much to me

But there's many a hill that needs a crossing
There's many places left to see
But I know there's no folks where I'll be going
And no face that will mean as much to me
There's no face that will mean as much to me
There's no face that will mean as much to me

Best Days of My Life

I got no wear to go
I got nothing to do
It's the day after Christmas
And I'm thinking of you

Looking out of my window
There nothing to see
Even the snow that was falling thought it was time to leave

But I'm doing fine
'Cause everyone said that these days are the best days of my life

I'm near the autumn of my live
Got some grey on the sides
Yes, I promise to work out, honey
But I just can't find the time

I'm not a billionaire yet
I guess that's nothing for me
I got the wife, dog, car and house
And some cards up my sleeve

But I'm doing fine
'Cause everyone said that these days are the best days of my life

When the wild roses die
You'll find a soft place to hide
When your troubles don't mind
These are the best days of our lives

The world is crazy
God is gone
No heroes waiting all night long to save the city from her darkest hours
So where are the brave

I don't mean the soldiers who fight the wars
But the man on the corner working in a store
He hopes that his kids grow up to be honest men
And make him believe again

But I'm doing fine
'Cause everyone said that these days are the best days of my life

But I'm doing fine
'Cause everyone said that these days are the best days of my life

Too Much Love Will Kill You

I'm just the pieces of the man I used to be
Too many bitter tears are raining down on me
I'm far away from home
And I've been facing this alone for much too long

I feel like no-one ever told the truth to me
About growing up and what a struggle it would be
In my tangled state of mind
I've been looking back to find where I went wrong

Too much love will kill you
If you can't make up your mind
Torn between a lover and the love you leave behind
You're headed for disaster 'cause you never read the signs
Too much love will kill you every time

I'm just the shadow of the man I used to be
And it seems like there's no way out of this for me
I used to bring you sunshine
Now all I ever do is bring you down

How would it be if you were standing in my shoes
Can't you see that it's impossible to choose
No there's no making sense of it
Every way I go I'm bound to lose

Too much love will kill you
If you can't make up your mind
Torn between a lover and the love you leave behind
You're headed for disaster 'cause you never read the signs
Too much love will kill you every time

In Every Way

You were so kind
To light up my life
You're the reason why
I don' t sleep at night

When the day comes
That I leave this earth
Will you be there
Will you carry my hurt
Carry my hurt

You were my guide
Who showed me the way
Like birds with the season flying away
Finding a home
And a warm place to stay
You gave me this comfort
All of your days
All of your days

You were there for me in every way
A shoulder to cry on, the right things to say
You were there for me in every way
Laughing and talking
Those were the days

You were my sun
Who lit up my sky
Like flowers need sunshine
You were my summertime
So when I know
That you will be there
Waiting for me
When the end is near
I'll have no fear

'Cause you were there for me in every way
A shoulder to cry on, the right things to say
You were there for me in every way
Laughing and talking
Those were the days

Over het album

Danny Vera had nog een aantal liedjes die hij graag wilde opnemen voor het tweeluik. Zo is "Expandable Time" een catchy liefdesliedje en "Best Days of My life" over ouder worden en de wereld van nu. "Leavin'" van Don Williams is een track die zijn vader vroeger vaak luisterde en zong: "Jaren later zongen wij het vaak samen als ik ergens moest spelen en mijn vader er toevallig bij was. Het hoort ook bij de verhalen van de theatershow."

In de show van Giel Beelen coverde Danny een paar jaar geleden Russian Roulette van Rihanna: "Het liedje is prachtig en me altijd bijgebleven. Ik moest het een keer zelf opnemen." Datzelfde geldt voor Too Much Love Will Kill You van Queen: "Ik dacht dat dit nummer zich perfect zou lenen voor een uitgeklede versie. Alleen mezelf en een gitaar. Over het gemis van mensen die er niet meer zijn".
