about

Dara Eagle Brooklyn, New York

I don't like to stick to one instrument in my songwriting because each one has something different to offer a song. When I was a kid I took piano lessons & started writing on that, as a teenager added guitar then switched over to it for a while, I picked up the ukulele one year & couldn't put it down. I picked back up my middle school trumpet. I have a viola around I'll get to one of these days... ... more

Track Name: She's Not Me
She's not me
and maybe that's the point
I'm a brown like you
and she's a blue
She dyes and paints and fusses
and I'm just me
I am what you see

And from what I can observe
You're just not ready to live the life I offer
Brilliant, dangerous, unsure
She's not me
And maybe that's the point

She captures the innocence
of which you've always fantasized
of gaining, of corrupting
I capture the experience
of which you've always envied of living
But only dreaming

You loved me for me
but wanted me as her
You loved me for me
but from what I can observe

From what I can observe
You're just not ready to live the life I offer
Brilliant, dangerous, unsure
She's not me
And maybe that's the point
Track Name: Fate My Friend
I don't shake too easy
I don't stand too still
I know every moment
isn't as hard as the kill
Yeah you could walk beside me
I guess for a while
But if I grow tired of you
I'll just toss you aside

Where do you go down the road?
Are your enemies constantly changing,
Sold?

I wish I had a reason
I wish I had a right
Guess it's not in season
I'll just put it aside
Oh no, was that you
When I was shaking in
boots of leather
steel-toed, dull with chagrin?

Where do you go down the road?
Are your enemies constantly changing?
Hold

I hate it when you're cold
It's unknown
but it grows
in my gut and throat
I'm hardly hanging on
My escape
is a heart
from my own soul
Track Name: The End of The World as We Know It
When I read your mind
I was pulled into a state of truth
A longing for the youth I've left behind
As the days unwind
I can slip into a point of view
The mystery I never thought to find
Ooo
One haunting night
With no explanation for the ruse
No explanation for the pain inside
You can't make things right
If you run away if you refuse
Acceptance isn't putting on a smile

Ba da dum bum bum
Ba da dum bum
Ooo Ooo

It won't fade with time
But if you're lucky you'll go deaf
Cause blind you see it clear
Behind your eyes
And you can mime
But underneath your shell is left
A spectre holding hope
Inside the lie

Ba da dum bum bum
Ba da dum bum
Ooo Ooo

Where are you going?
What are you throwing away?
It's the same thing you've always wanted
Welcomed by your vices each and every day
What's the cost of living?
On the outside
Looking in

Ba da dum bum bum
Ba da dum bum
Ooo Ooo
Track Name: To Tune
A caterwaul
A wail not stopping
A siren growing strong
Lights popping
And matching this is your song
Lopping along
Melody somewhere growing

A stillness blesses once
Our meeting
The stillness passed
Moment Fleeting
And hatching this is your song
Lopping along
Melody somewhere growing

One by one we
Slowly fumbling
Shaky reaching
Humbly bear our souls
For you for leeching

Pierced through the air
A bullet streaking
The wind it makes a tone
Shoots a feeling
And happening is your song
Flowing along
Melody lightly flooding

One by one we
Slowly fumbling
Shaky reaching
Humbly bear our souls
For you for leeching
Track Name: Little Dreams and Silver Lining
Where do you go
When everything works out?
I hit the road
Find out what life is about
You know it's not that easy though
No not anymore
You can't just pick up and go
When you're stuck
And you're bored

Tough
I must just throw it all away
And save it for another me
Maybe seeing
Little dreams inside my eyes
Has destroyed
My sense of reality

So what do you know
There goes life turning round
But here comes that road
With the fork and the choice
Of which to go down
You know it's not that easy no
Not when there's consequence
Both ways
My feet below me start to go
While my mind
Starts to stray

Tough
I must just throw it all away
And save it for another me
Maybe seeing
Little dreams inside my eyes
Has destroyed
My sense of reality
