about

David Hayes Chicago, Illinois

David Hayes himself might tell you that his true growth as a performer and songwriter has come from places and people outside himself. He's that rare performer where referring to his sound as a constant work-in-progress isn't a detriment, but a selling point.This year, Hayes is back with Epics, a wildly-eclectic batch of sonic wizardry and emotional highs. ... more

Track Name: Backwards
Backwards
David Hayes

V.
If you feel you’re going backwards and always getting nowhere
Growing older by the second, and trading visions for blank stares
You used to be so fearless, nothing ever held you back
But you never had the knowledge that brought you down your current path

Ch.
No matter where you’ve been, it only matters where you go
And if you feel like staying here then we’re just happy to have you home

Br.
Got to give it your all if you want to succeed
Dedicate your life to a cause you may not see
(Solo)
Ch.

V.
You use to be so fucking fearless, nothing ever held you back
But you never had the knowledge that brought you down your current path

Black
David Hayes

V1
When the sky fades to black
the dreamers come alive
to create a new world
with the visions from their mind
Ch.
If you need anything
I’m there for you tonight
If you dream of anything
I hope it comes alive
V2
When the lovers rise
There’s a chance that we’ll survive
To create a new world
With the visions from their mind

Track Name: Persistent Memory
Persistent Memory
David Hayes
A.
Have you ever heard an honest heart beat
It’s warm from love, and cold from pain
It’s part of being human

B.
Your love was surreal
When I didn’t want to feel a thing
Time melted away like a persistent memory
Ooooooo

C.
You completely gave me a meaning to live
Cause you’re the reason for me being here
Here in love

B.

A.
Have you ever heard an honest heart beat
Track Name: Odyssey
Odyssey
David Hayes

V1
Many times I feel
like this all isn’t real
like it’s just someone’s bad joke
Then you came to me
and I finally could see

Ch1
the meaning of your love
the feeling from your love

V2
Now it’s gone away
and I’m back from where I came
Just a lonely love victim
How I want to believe
that there’s more to what I see

Ch.2
From the meaning of real love
From the feeling from real love

V3
I’ve got more to give
As long as I live
Even after I’m long gone
It’s a better world
When your heart has it’s fill

Ch.2
From the meaning of real love
From the feeling of real love
Yeah…

V4
Cause it’s a painful game
That destroys all who’ve came
Leaving lonely love victims
I wanted more
Or maybe I’m not sure
Who knows what they’re looking for
Maybe something more
From the feeling of real..

Gone

You lost your sanity
Up where they put all the crazies

A lost soul, hopeful dreamer of love

Track Name: Paranoid
Paranoid
David Hayes
V.1
You’ve got me feeling paranoid
Like there’s something I’ve destroyed
Like there’s blood on my hand
But I’m innocent
You’ve even called me on the phone
You’ve pulled me over on the road
But I’m not your man
Yeah I’m innocent
Cause you give a dose of fear
You inject it in my ear
I’m not the one you want
for that hit and run
You let your accusations fly
Hunting down my alibi
I’m not the one you want
For that hit and run
Ch.
You’ve got me feeling paranoid
Like there’s something I’ve destroyed
But I’m not your man
Yeah I’m innocent, Yeah…..
Solo
Outro
I plead not guilty
but paranoia’s drowning me
and I hear you following
my every move
2x
I plead not guilty
paranoia’s drowning me
and I feel you watching
my every move

I plead not guilty
paranoia’s drowning me
and I feel you watching
What can I do my every move, my every move,
My every move you’re following
paranoia’s drowning me
And I feel you watching my every move

Ch.
You’ve got me feeling paranoid
Like there’s something I’ve destroyed
But I’m not the one……

When you trust someone
You leave your guard down

You know will be around

Look back on the good they’ve done

I’m behind you

If you fall I’ll be your net
