Story

I wrote this song on december 24, 2001, in the twilight hour, with the cold clear light and the brightest star (which I haven't understood yet whether is Venus or Sirius), that seemed so close I could touch it...

I never recorded it till today...
I believe I can consider this "my Christmas song", and since people gives gifts in Xmas time, I, this year, give this to you...
a huge heartfelt THANKS to my Friend Andy G for giving magic to this track, more than I couldn't do...
Merry Christmas

Lyrics

The bright light of the sky glows everywhereThe sun is breaking down behind the hills
Whited from fallen snowflakes days ago
It’s cold it’s cold you know you must hold
On feelings you taste in these times

December sky so bright.. so alive
Reach out your hand and touch the first star
December sky so bright.. so alive
Shivers of cold chill out the night

The bright light of the sky’s moving my mind
My heart is breaking down thinkin’ of you
Something that still reminds me of some years ago
It’s cold it’s cold I know I must hold
On feelings I tasted those times

December sky so bright.. so alive
Reach out your hand and touch the first star
December sky so bright.. so alive
Shivers of cold chill out the night

Time never stops, ain’t gonna drop
A present to relief from sufferings
Only this light, as precious as life
That comes from Dcember’s sky

December sky so bright.. so alive
Reach out your hand and touch the first star
December sky so bright.. so aliveShivers of cold chill out the night

Lyrics

I’ve been waiting for you 
Waiting 
Don’t you know, I’ve been waiting for you 
You told me (2nd you said) 
“hold on… I’m on the road… I’ll be there in a while” 
I said ok, I’ll be waiting…. 
Then it started to rain… 
Minutes passing by, by and by, from dusk to dawn 
And I’ve been waiting, 
Waiting for you 
And I keep on waiting 
Don’t you know I’ve been waiting for you 
I guess where are you… 
Don’t have a clue… 
Don’t have a clue…

Story

First track I wrote, played, sang and recorded one afternoon, inspired by the isle whom many are inspired by: Formentera

Lyrics

I know place where we can run away From everything from every fear 
But it’s not easy to reach out for it 
It takes some strength and such effort 

The season now it changes for the worse 
The wind it grows, the rain it comes 
But memories are never fading out 
Like thunders stuck among the clouds 

I spread my arms and feel the wind 
Releasing me from suffering 
I close my eyes and feel the wind 
Releasing from bad memories 

I see some people walking on the shore 
But I’m alone, just flesh and bones 
It’s absolutely crazy what I say 
This sadness makes me happy all day 

I spread my arms and feel the wind 
Releasing me from suffering 
I close my eyes and feel the wind 
Releasing from bad memories ( X 2 ) 


I keep thinking about you… but I do know it’s over…. 
I see your ghost everywhere I turn…. I smile…. I cry….. I hold on…..

WHITE CHRISTMAS - written by Irving Berlin

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas 
Just like the ones I used to know 
Where the treetops glisten, 
and children listen 
To hear sleigh bells in the snow 

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas 
With every Christmas card I write 
May your days be merry and bright 
And may all your Christmases be white

Lead single from 4th Didascalis album ENJOY MY WRONG SHOES, a tribute to Depeche Mode

Lyrics

written by M.L. Gore

 

I was born with the wrong sign 
In the wrong house 
With the wrong ascendancy 
I took the wrong road 
That led to 
The wrong tendencies 
I was in the wrong place 
At the wrong time 
For the wrong reason 
And the wrong rhyme 
On the wrong day 
Of the wrong week 
Used the wrong method 
With the wrong technique 
Wrong 
Wrong 

There's something wrong with me chemically 
Something wrong with me inherently 
The wrong mix 
In the wrong genes 
I reached the wrong ends 
By the wrong means 
It was the wrong plan 
In the wrong hands 
The wrong theory 
For the wrong man 
The wrong eyes 
On the wrong prize 
The wrong questions 
With the wrong replies 
Wrong 
Wrong 

I was marching to the wrong drum 
With the wrong scum 
Pissing out the wrong energy 
Using all the wrong lines 
And the wrong signs 
With the wrong intensity 
I was on the wrong page 
Of the wrong book 
With the wrong rendition 
Of the wrong look 
With the wrong moon 
Every wrong night 
With the wrong tune playing 
Till it sounded right, yeah 

Wrong 

Wrong 

Too long

This is the titletrack of Didascalis 2nd release, and it has been written following my Dad loss...

Lyrics

It seems impossible to say... 
It seems impossible to hear... 
There is no turning back this way 
I have grown older ten thousand years 

I have been dreaming of this day... 
But never thought it came this year 
There is no turning back this way...

Didascalis - 4 Chords
written by D. Marani
originally released on "Beautiful Memories of A Strange Summer Breeze" February 2007
Remastered June 2015

I've always loved this track from my first release, but, at the time, my studio and mixing skills and hardware too weren't like the ones of today.
So I decided to open the old tracks of the song and remix and remaster them as it should.
Now, I'm happy how it sounds, although I didn't play anything brand new, except for a percussion sample, which, at the time, I wasn't able to stretch and put at tempo! LoL.
Now I made it!

Enjoy this for free

Dave
