All I Wanna Do (Is Make Love To You)

It was a rainy night when she came into sight
Standing by the road, no umbrella, no coat
So I pulled up along side and I offered her a ride
She accepted with a smile so we drove for a while

I didn't ask her her name, this lonely girl in the rain
Fate tell me it's right, is this love at first sight
Please don't make it wrong, just stay for the night

All I wanna do is make love to you
Say you will, you want me too
All I wanna do is make love to you
I've got loving arms to hold on to

So we found this hotel, it was a place I knew well
We made magic that night
Oh, she did everything right
She made a man out of me, so many times, easily
And in the morning when I woke all she left me was a note

She told me I am the flower, you are the seed
When we walked in the garden we planted a tree
Don't try to find me, please don't you dare
Just live in my memory, you will always be there

All I wanna do is make love to you
Just say you will, you want me too
All I wanna do is make love to you
I've got loving arms to hold on to

Then it happened one day, we came round the same way
You can imagine my surprise when I saw my own eyes
She said "please, please understand
I'm in love with another man
And what he couldn't give me, oh
was the one little thing that you can"

All I wanna do is make love to you
One night of love was all we knew
All I want to do is make love to you
I got loving arms to hold on to

Waiting for Me

I was watching when you came in
I had nothing to do but play the fool
And you all you had were walking past me
Saying nothing
Not even a look
They told me that you were

Waiting for me
Feeling alone
But I didn't know
You were waiting for me
Feeling alone
But I didn't know

I looked over my shoulder
I was laughing
You were leaving
Well, that's how it seemed

Lights went on
And everything was different
Through the pillars of smoke eyes
I saw you in blue
They told me that you were

Waiting for me
Feeling alone
But I didn't know
You were waiting for me
Feeling alone
But I didn't know

A mint green light reveals the morning
As you slowly walk away

You were waiting for me
Feeling alone
But I didn't know
You were waiting for me
Feeling alone
But I didn't know

You

You say I don't write ordinary love songs
'Cause I'm not romantic in that way
I will prove you wrong
Writing this in our home
While the dog I sleeping at my feet

I'll write about our life
Exactly I'll describe how you were dancing for me
And I'll write, I'll write about that time
We were flying through the night just to get home

You, you and only you
You only will do
You, you and only you helped me get enough out of life
Just being you

Couch potato life, a blanket and a movie
That's how we got through winter nights
But I will keep you warm
I won't let this home cool off
Each other guide through the hard times

I'll write about our life
Exactly I'll describe how you are laughing at me
And I'll write, I'll write about the time
We were driving through the night just to get home

You, you and only you
You only will do
You, you and only you helped me get enough out of life
Just being you

Life is waiting
Never let go
It's better this way

'Cause you, you and only you
You only will do
You, you and only you helped me get enough out of life
Just being you

So Sad To Watch Good Love Go Bad

We used to have good times together
But now I feel them slip away
It makes me cry to see love die
So sad to watch good love go bad

Remember how you used to feel dear
You said nothing could change your mind
It breaks my heart to see us part
So sad to watch good love go bad

Is it any wonder
That I feel so blue
When I know for certain
That I'm losing you

Remember how you used to feel dear
You said nothing could change your mind
It breaks my heart to see us part
So sad to watch good love go bad
So sad to watch good love go bad

Bye Bye Eddie

It's so long ago but I still remember
The time when we were just friends
Two little kids playing in the backyard
Dreaming 'bout cowboys and Indians

And I still recall the day we played football
And you felt flat on your face
What I didn't know that my tears of laughter
Would make you feel so ashamed

So, bye, bye Eddie
Bye, bye my friend
It's so long since we talked and made castles of sand
But I won't forget you, 'cause I think of you now and then

Well I think of that summer, angry dog in that garden
I encouraged you to get the ball
You came running and screaming
When you finally got it
You didn't see the little fence at all

Then a couple of years later when we're playing football
A neighbor said here's what I gotta say
Did you hear the rumor about Eddie's family
I heard they're moving away

So, bye, bye Eddie
Bye, bye my friend
It's so long since we talked and made castles of sand
But I won't forget you, 'cause I think of you now and then

One day I stopped by
And I knocked on your front door
I was just fooling around
When I looked through the window, no furniture left there
And only some stains on the ground

One day, afternoon, half a year later
My mother came to pick me up from school
When I looked at her face I could tell that I didn't want the truth

Son, he died on vacation, there's no explanation
I'm sorry to tell you your best friend is gone
And with tears in our eyes we walked to your old house that night

Singing, bye, bye Eddie
Bye, bye my friend
It so long since we talked and made castles of sand
But I won't forget you, 'cause I think of you now and then

Singing, bye, bye Eddie
Bye, bye my friend
It so long since we talked and made castles of sand
I won't forget you, 'cause I think of you now and then
And maybe one day I will see you again

Back To Black

She left no time to regret
Kept her pussy wet
With her same old safe bet

Me and my head high
And my tears dry
Get on without my wife

You went back to what you knew
So far removed from all the shit that we went through

And I tread a troubled track
My odds are stacked
I'll go back to black

We only said good-bye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to him
And I go back to us

Yes, I love you much
It's not enough
You love blow and I love puff

And life is like a pipe
And I'm a big fat dollar rolling up the walls inside

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to him
And I go back to

Black, black, black, black, black, black, black
I go back to
I go back to

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to him
And I go back to

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to him
And I go back to black

Over het album

Het eerste deel van The New Black & White (2014) werd alom goed ontvangen. In de studio van Frans Hagenaars koos Danny Vera voor een andere aanpak; in een kleine bandsamenstelling speelde hij een aantal nieuwe nummers. Soms in z'n eentje, dan met z'n tweeën of drieën. Een enkele track bleek na de eerste take gelijk een voltreffer. Danny: "Alles live spelen, zonder koptelefoons. Geweldig! Opnemen zoals vroeger, maar met de techniek van nu... The New Black & White".

In 2015 speelde hij de tracks van The New Black & White in de theaters met een voorstelling met de gelijknamige titel. Danny: "Ik vond het mooi om een tweeluik te maken, omdat de theatershow ook uit 2 delen bestaat. Voor en na de pauze".
