Watch emerging Country Singer Dan Layus perform his song "Driveway" . . .

Boston singer and songwriter Dan Layus released his Driveway music video from his 2016 album Dangerous Things.  Dan rediscovered his Country and Americana roots after moving from L.A. to Nashville.  His album Dangerous Things crosses both Country and Americana/Folk genres.  “That song was certainly gut wrenching, both to write and to witness in real time,” Layus stated about Driveway, “I’m a child of multiple divorces, so I have a lot of experience with this. Half of all kids in America have experience with it, too. My friend was going through a tumultuous split with his wife, and I was driving by their house one day and saw him sitting in his truck. Everybody else was inside, and he was just sitting out there in the driveway. It just crushed me.”

His wife, Nina and kids appear in the music video.   Watch the “Driveway” music video and check out the lyrics below.

Driveway Lyrics

It’s 5 o’clock and the rain won’t stop
And I feel like a prisoner in my own car
She’s leaning on the sink, trying not to think
Wondering how much longer we can fake this thing

We’re both giving more than we both get
This has been so hard, we don’t want to give up yet
You’re in there, and I’m out here
Can’t bear to leave, can’t stand to stay
So I’m just sitting here, parked in the driveway

Used to be you and me
Have a date in the front, kid sleeping in the backseat
This driveway was an open road
Didn’t think at the start this is where it was gonna go

We’re both giving more than we both get
This has been so hard, we don’t want to give up yet
You’re in there, and I’m out here
Can’t bear to leave, can’t stand to stay
So I’m just sitting here, parked in the driveway

The way things went, it was a long slow death
Put ourselves in the corner time and time again
It’s hard to say if it’s too late
But you’d give up or I drove away

Can’t bear to leave, can’t stand to stay
So I’m just sitting here, parked in the driveway

This house was a home a long time ago
We don’t want to miss it, but I think we both know

We’re both giving more than we both get
This has been so hard, we don’t want to give up yet
You’re in there, and honey I’m out here
Can’t bear to leave, can’t stand to stay
So I’m just sitting here, parked in the driveway
