See It Now 03:34
Never a day that he wanted it more The dream he'd been working his whole life for Opportunity knocking, timing is everything His goals were in reach til his dad pulled them out again Forcing the boy in a path he thought young men should go Oh when the clouds cover over a heart The rain and the tears start falling All of the work ripped apart at the seams Can you see it now Never a day that she wanted it more The love she'd been working her whole life for A mother who never had time for a little girl A child who spent all her days trying to prove she was worth More than a life of knowing her mum doesn't care Oh when the clouds cover over a heart The rain and the tears start falling All of the work ripped apart at the seams Love is a dance, is a song, is a spark And when the flame stops burning All that remains is the ghost of a dream Can you see it now You never knew What you put me through So now I'm telling you I don't need you I don't need you Never a day that I wanted it more The life that you stopped me from reaching for Oh when the clouds cover over a heart The rain and the tears start falling All of the work ripped apart at the seams Love is a dance, is a song, is a spark And when the flame stops burning All that remains is the ghost of a dream Can you see it now Can you see it now Can you see it now I can see it now

Long Way 03:43
Rushing my way through life just to stand in a line but it ain't going nowhere fast Pushing my pen at a desk job, paying rent, paying money, paying in laughs Gotta break the chains of day to day, find a way to get just a little more back Coz city life is running wild. I need a mild, laid back, change of tack It's a long way From the 'burbs to bush but I'll drive it in the slow lane Long way 'Til I find what I'm looking for, throw the old me away Long way Seeking answers in the white line and wisdom in a red dirt plain It's all waiting up ahead but it's a long way Running all day everyday, it left me in a fit state to go right over the edge Time is money oh and money is life, living hard,living fast, livin the stress Sick of on the go, gotta take it slow, 'cause you know baby you're a long time dead So chillin' out is what's it's all about, figure out how to just take a breath It's a long way From the 'burbs to bush but I'll drive it in the slow lane Long way 'Til I find what I'm looking for, throw the old me away Long way Seeking answers in the white line and wisdom in a red dirt plain It's all waiting up ahead but it's a long way Somewhere out there where I can hear the silence Starry skies and the blackest nights, life at it's best It's a long way It's a long way It's a long way From the 'burbs to bush but I'll drive it in the slow lane Long way 'Til I find what I'm looking for, throw the old me away Long way Seeking answers in the white line and wisdom in a red dirt plain It's all waiting up ahead but it's a long way It's a long way From the 'burbs to bush but I'll drive it in the slow lane Long way 'Til I find what I'm looking for, throw the old me away Long way Seeking answers in the white line and wisdom in a red dirt plain It's all waiting up ahead but it's a long way

Gotta take a minute just take a step back Watch the sun go down watch the sky turn black Gotta take a second just to let it all go When the world’s too tough and you’re feeling low Gotta take a minute Gotta take a road where the feeling’s high With the window down feel the air brush by Gotta take a walk where the green grass grows Where the flowers bloom and the bluebirds go Gotta take a minute Gotta take a minute Spend my time in the push and shove Always on the go in a crazy rush You gotta take a minute Gotta take a break from the faster lane Take a walk outside dance in the rain Gotta spend an evening underneath the stars Where the full moon glows and the wild dogs howl Gotta take a minute Gotta take a minute Spend my time in the push and shove Always on the go in a crazy rush You gotta take a minute Oh you gotta take a minute Gotta take a minute Gotta take a minute Gotta take a minute Gotta take a minute

Sometimes I feel I'm living on a dead end road I know I'm getting nowhere, but there's nowhere else to go I try find a way out but I get pushed back down I think I've found direction, then I turn around I don't know where I'm going and I don't really care I guess I'll find the answers when I get there Coz I'm free You can't hold me down Oh I'm free My anchor's off the ground Yeah I'm free Living day by day Oh I'm free, yeah I'm free People try to tell me what to do with my life They say I've got it wrong well now I think I've got it right I'm not gonna be the kinda girl to settle down I'll let each day bring another but just in another town I don't know where I'm going and I don't really care I guess I'll find the answers when I get there Coz I'm free You can't hold me down Oh I'm free My anchor's off the ground Yeah I'm free Living day by day Oh I'm free, yeah I'm free I don't know where I'm going and I don't really care I guess I'll find the answers when I get there Coz I'm free Living day by day Oh I'm Free Coz I'm free You can't hold me down Oh I'm free My anchor's off the ground Yeah I'm free Living day by day Oh I'm free, yeah I'm free

No Way, I thought that we could be just friends/ This place, I don't wanna be here again/ It's not safe, I don't wanna have to pretend/ Here I am prying at the doors of the cage/ You stare, happy to turn over the page/ You're all there laughing at the girl on the stage/ Chorus: After all the loops and hurdles/ I still think if I could sink into your arms/ It's a red letter day/ red letter day/ When you push open my door, run down the hall, calling my name/ It's a red letter day/ red letter day/ When at last you will see/ We were both meant to be one and the same/ It's a red letter day/ Stop light, how am I gonna get through this/ It's not right that you don't have to see the abyss/ You slip by leaving me with a Judas kiss/ Long way from everything that you can imagine/ Darkness seems to come with sorrow and passion/ Fine line, sitting at the mouth of a trap/ Chorus/ Chorus

Two Steps 04:01
I was running from the past I left behind/ Too scared to slow it down/ You were hiding from the mess of yesterday/ Trying to find your own way out/ We fit together like puzzle pieces/ Couldn’t bear to be apart/ But you heard thunder/ coming in the distance/ You're gonna run out on my heart/ And I cant stop you/ Chorus: I've got two steps, two feet/ 'Til you walk right out the door/ And I won't hear from you no more/ I've got two steps to make you see/ This don’t have to be the end/ Gotta make you see sense in just two steps/ So scared of falling it took everything we had/ To let the fire burn within/ We found each other and we held on tight and I/ I never wanted it to end/ But you thought different/ Chorus/ Oh cant stop you. No I cant stop you/ If you wanna leave. If you wanna leave/ Oh cant stop you. No I cant stop you/ If you wanna leave. If you wanna leave/ Oh I cant stop you. No I cant stop you / If you wanna leave. Baby Please don’t leave/ Started running from the past we left behind/ I’m too scared to slow it down

about

Dana Hassall Canberra, Australia

Growing up on an alpaca farm in Queensland gave Dana Hassall the perfect level of isolation to lock herself away & create. Her music harks back to a time where songwriting was simply about writing great songs. Airy, earthy vocals & feel driven guitar contribute to her cool rootsy sound. Dana’s music is a cup of tea for the soul, with a shot of whiskey. ... more
