Doug Hawk Easton, Pennsylvania

His compositions are more positive affirmation than they are songs. This is intelligent, inspiring, grooving music that not only makes you think but groove, as well. Lyrically topical with a positive message. Comparisons to artists such as Stevie Wonder, Jamiroquai, Steely Dan and Gill Scott-Heron are accurate but in a purely derivative sense. Hawk has emphatically created his own unique sound ... more

Track Name: Once in a Dream
Sometimes sounds of doubt infect your mind

Metastasize and take control of your life

But you must dig down deep exactly where you need

to find the strength to face a world of broken pieces

do the things that you can do to make it better


Maybe you'll wake up in time to die

or make me wrong and prove yourself right

Find the very thing thing that you were born

to put your heart into to turn this world into

a place where everything is shared - true humanity -

The greatest gift that you could ever give is love

There's no way we can grow with the standard set so low

Try to feel what real freedom freely live

Just not like this.'s just as you described.
Track Name: Caught in a Quiet Room
I'm caught in a quiet room

with no one to listen to me

it's not the way I choose to be.

An empty seat next to me

the seed of my destiny

keeping the best of me from you

Life is such misery. Life just won't set me free.

How can one love at all when all that they've loved is gone?

Take what she's given you

and keep it right next to you

let all your words be true, indeed.

For tomorrow may never come

where nothing can be undone

where I am the only one in need.

It's the best and the worst of things

that the twist of this tragedy

is how something so sad can lead to so much growth.

A basic dichotomy just like the front and the back of me

all alone with a memory of me and you.

Life is a mystery. Life's more than history.

Where it has been is gone. The best thing is to move on.

Live on.
Track Name: Hope Never Dies
I’m all alone, I’m pretty low

Nobody seems to mind

A deep blue sea surrounding me

Unapproachable from all sides

That’s the way it is. That’s how I live

I haven’t been trying to hide

I’m on a road that no one else can find

There’s a sign on a pole but I might as well be blind

There’s a lonely cold that just won’t die

But something still glows…and it’s hope

I spent some time…analyzed…realized that I create my space

Reality is simply how I choose to see Me and my eternity

Love is long and fear is wide I think I'll be alright.

I think I even might

Find a road I never thought I’d find

It was there before I just couldn’t see the sign

It’s been so long Since I’ve felt another way

I'm finally alive – I've realized – that hope never dies.
