A Place Where Everyone Sings

from Two Good Hands EP by Darryl Purpose



"When a song falls from the sky, resplendent in character and depth, there is nothing to do but bow the head and say thank you." ~ Bill Bentley of Americana Highways

On "A Place Where Everyone Sings" Purpose sings "Love writes it's own songs and stories / One day you will find the place where everyone sings."
Written by his friend Mark Josephs, Purpose, then 23 yrs old, recalls meeting Josephs as the latter performed this song on the Atlantic City Boardwalk.
"I handed him $2,000 cash to make a record, and we were close friends until his death a few years ago." Purpose says. I owe my guitar playing right hand to him."


As a young boy I would think
There must be a place where everyone sings
But as a man I heard no songs at all
They said the world isn't for singing
Stop yourself from listening
There must be a melody

Traveled around for a while
Searching for something to make me smile
I opened my heart and found you there
Love writes it own songs and stories
One day you'll find
The place where everyone sings
