  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    This is a pre-order of our second album, entitled The Lookout.

    Danny says:

    "I have spent the last 5 years, on and off, making this album. It is completed and will be released digitally in January. Making an album is expensive. There was once a time when I thought it would never be finished, and that's why you'll recognise some of the songs. We released a few as stand-alone singles. But they were always intended to be part of this album. There are 11 songs altogether and 16 musicians in total contribute their talents. The above is a mockup of how the vinyl may look (it hasn't gone to print yet).

    The reason why I'm doing pre-orders before the album has gone to print is a financial one. If enough people pre-order the album, I'll be able to afford printing it. If not, I won't be able to put up the costs myself. So think of this as kind of a fund-it campaign. Except you'll have a beautiful looking vinyl by the end of it. I promise you that it sounds fantastic. Ken McCabe of Wolfhound Sound has done an incredible job mixing my indulgent triple tracked vocal takes into something sonically rich and satisfying to the ear. It will be pressed on 180g yellow vinyl with Irish company Dublin Vinyl.

    To make it simple, if you'd like this to become a reality, consider pre-ordering. It can be a Christmas present for a friend, or a treat for yourself. Then send this link to 3 people who would dig it. You never know, it just might happen! If the threshold is not met, you will of course be refunded."

**Chorus** Don’t know what it is But you’ve got me smiling again Well it’s something you do Now I’m believing in love again **Verse 2** I know you’ll treat me like a queen Now I know what the singers mean When they croon about cloud nine And the beauty they have seen But it’s right in front of me I’m gonna get it, I’m gonna get it Although you don’t belong to me It’s by your side I wanna be Yeah you give me good feeling My soul’s healing Got me believing in something And even if you end up leaving me Got me believing in something **Chorus** Don’t know what it is But you’ve got me smiling again Well it’s something you do Now I’m believing in love again Yeah you give me good feeling My soul’s healing Got me believing in something And even if you end up leaving me Got me believing in something **Chorus** Don’t know what it is But you’ve got me smiling again Well it’s something you do I’m believing in love again Well it’s something you do Now I’m believing

**Verse 1** Stop what you’re doing I’ve got something I wanna say to you and How I’m sorry about the way I’ve been treating you I’ve been caught up in my own thing Made you feel invisible How could I do that when I made a promise to love you And that’s what I’m gonna do to you And I’m not gonna stop ‘Til you say when, say when, say when I’m not gonna stop ‘Til you say when, say when, say when **Verse 2** Stop all your promises I’ve heard them all before, every single one Don’t want you to talk about it Just show me, show me Come home, don’t delay The only words I wanna hear you say are Don’t stop what you’re doing to me darling, Just love me Well that’s what I’m gonna do to you **Chorus** And I’m not gonna stop ‘Til you say when, say when, say when I’m not gonna stop ‘Til you say when, say when, say when I’m not gonna stop ‘Til you say when, say when, say when I’m not gonna stop ‘Til you say when, say when, say when **BRIDGE** I don’t wanna stop at all, no, no I know you sure love to ball, baby I'm gonna break down every wall Just to love you Well that’s what I’m gonna do That’s what I’m gonna do Well that’s what I’m gonna do to you And if you just say the words, But I don't want you to I’m not gonna stop I’m not gonna stop I’m not gonna stop Say When I’m not gonna stop I’m not gonna stop No I’m not gonna stop Don't make me I don't ever wanna And I’m not gonna stop ‘Til you say when, say when, say when I’m not gonna stop ‘Til you say when, say when, say when I’m not gonna stop ‘Til you say when, say when, say when I’m not gonna stop ‘Til you say when, say when, say when

**Verse 1** She said that she would wait for you That’s what she said She said she’d never be untrue That’s what she said No you don’t care what people tell you bout Time the magician They just want you to feel better but you don’t wanna listen You’ve heard it all before And even if you did, you wouldn’t give a shit Cos it doesn’t stop the pain, believe me I know But you’ve got a friend, why don’t you call on him Time the healer He heals all wounds Time the healer **Verse 2** It’s not the load that weighs you down It’s how you carry it around, the healer Hold your head up and be proud You were lost but now you’re found, the healer Scars to prove the pain was real Drugs to change the way you feel Call yourself and make a deal to beat it Well that’s the way to go, it’s hard i know But it doesn’t stop the pain, believe me I know You’ve got a friend, her name is Time the healer Time the healer Time the healer Time the healer
