What You Need

What You Need
©Dani Strong 2015


Daddy comes home after working a long day
Baby’s crying, but mama smiles anyway
And he knows, he knows, he knows

He wouldn’t want to be anywhere else
He’s got it all in that little house
He knows, he knows, he knows

That that’s all you need
To know you believe in something
And that’s how it feels
When you know it’s the only one
There’s something about it, when you know it
Not a shadow of doubt, not a cloud in the sky
‘Cause if you’ve got somebody to love (I do)
If you’ve got something to believe (I do, I do)
If you’ve got love, and you got a dream
Baby you’ve got what you need

She stares out the window as he pulls out the drive
Smiles as she thinks about their little life
She knows, she knows, she knows

He comes home dirty but she don’t mind
She don’t wanna waste any more time
She’s gotta hold him tonight

‘Cause that’s what you do
When you know you believe in something
And that’s how it feels
When you know it’s the only one
There’s something about it, when you know it
Not a shadow of doubt, not a cloud in the sky
‘Cause if you’ve got somebody to love (I do)
If you’ve got something to believe (I do, I do)
If you’ve got love, and you got a dream
Baby you’ve got what you need

It might not be what you dreamed of
Lord knows we want it all don’t we
Stop. Look around for a moment
Have you got somebody to love (I do)
Have you got something to believe (I do, I do)
If you’ve got love, and you’ve got a dream
Baby you’ve got what you need

That’s all you need
To know you believe in something
And that’s how it feels
When you know it’s the only one
There’s something about it, when you know it
Not a shadow of doubt, not a cloud in the sky

If you’ve got somebody to love
If you’ve got something to believe
When her smile is more than enough
And he leaves you weak in the knees
If you’ve got love, and you got a dream
Baby you’ve got what you need

Wild One

Wild One
©Dani Strong 2015
Im breathing, just barely
Boots look cute,
hey, Im ready
Keys, check. Truck, check
Gone.
Lights blinding, beats pumping
I feel your heart pounding
Me, check. You, check.
Gone
Ya she's a wild one
Watch this filly run free unbridled
Ya it's a wild one
Like flames in the night, we'll be on fire
Wild one
Everything you want could happen tonight
In the shadows, I see you
Why won't you come nearer
Come into the light
If you hear me, hands up
Let me know it
Can you sing it? Get it going
We can own tonight
Yeah
Ya she's a wild one
Watch this filly run free unbridled
Ya it' a wild one
Like flames in the night, we'll be on fire
Wild one
Your mama don't know when you're coming home
Everything you want could happen tonight
Step up, step up, ride the bull
Head up, head up, don't let go
Is this the last ride of your life
No pressure baby, hold on tight
Ya she's a wild one
Watch this filly run free unbridled
Ya it's a wild one
Like flames in the night, we'll be on fire
Wild one
Your mama don't know when you're coming home
Everything you want could happen tonight

Biography:

I am a songwriter before anything else. Yes, I LOVE performing live. I am very comfortable on stage. I also feel very blessed to be a performing artist in the Country genre. However... a songwriter should not be bound by the walls of "genre-ism". I am a songwriter, the genre of the song will likely depend on the mood I was in when I wrote it... or the purpose for me writing the song.

I have been fortunate over the past year as a result of an "unfortunate occurrence"... I feel victim to song theft in 2015. It's a very long story (you can just google "Dani Strong Song Theft" ) that ended up being the biggest blessing in my musical career.
Since the song theft, my music has been heard by many... I finally released my first album after years of writing and to my SHOCK and pleasure, it went #1 on the iTunes Country charts and #2 overall genres (just couldn't beat Kings of Leon!). I released two singles to Canadian Country radio and received my first to nominations for music awards!

This is what I do. Make music. I am so grateful to do so!
