about

Instead of speaking to the tried-and-true themes of romantic love, this EP meditates on issues of growing up and coming to terms with the bittersweet nature of life, at any age. For her second solo release, Diana chose to look specifically to the modern roots and Americana tradition, drawing on performers such as Alison Krauss, the Wailin’ Jennys, Nina Nastasia and Feist. The EP is a solo endeavor (vocals, piano, organ and vibraphone) but includes support from singers Kara Kesselring (Sugarcreek Road) and Amanda Crumley (Mandy and the Bandits) as well as from guitarist Dave Saenger of Diana & the Dishes. Producer Mike Przygoda (Rego, Devin and the Straights) adds evocative ambient sounds (a rain storm, a tea kettle boiling) to place tracks in specific realms of daily life and memory.

Track Name: Praise for the Days
come all together
come all as one
come all to celebrate
the days that are done
the days that are done, oh

praise for the beauty
praise for the truth
praise for the days of youth

all doors were open
all things could be
all days were escapades of
just wait and see
just wait and see, oh



praise for the beauty
praise for the truth
praise for the days of youth

give us no reason
give us no rhyme
only a memory
and not enough time
not enough time
not enough time, oh

praise for the singer
praise for the song
curse all the cruelty of
life gone wrong
but praise for the beauty
praise for the truth
and praise for the days of youth
Track Name: You'll Get Through the Night
don't you worry, baby
you're gonna be alright
don't you worry, baby
you'll get through the night

yesterday was easy
when you still were small
now you are a young man
but you're still learning how to fall

I know you are frightened
of all that is to come
darling let me give you strength to face
the things that you're running from

I will always love you
and will always be
here with arms wide open
till you come to me
Track Name: Love Has Won
someday it will be over
someday it will be done
someday I’ll wake up smiling
knowing love has won
knowing love has won

someday I’ll see tomorrow
opening wide and free
there, we will walk together again
you and me

I know it’s gonna take a little time
I know it’s gonna take a little faith
but more than anything
more than anything
it’s gonna take love
it’s gonna take love
it’s gonna take love

I know the day it coming
I know the time is near
if you would just believe it
it would be here
it would be here

someday it will be over
someday it will be done
someday I’ll wake up singing
knowing love has won
knowing love has won
Track Name: Family
I talk like my father
I look like my mother
I think like my brother
and he thinks like me

I laugh like my mother
I cry like my brother
I smile like my father
at the people I see

I am my family
my family is me

I wish I had known her
my grandmother
when she was much younger like me
and on her own
I wish I had known those
who came here with just their clothes
to start a new life for me
brave and alone

take our pircture
tell the story again
nothing lasts forever
but it’s not gone if we remember when

I sing with my mother
I sing with my father
I sing with my brother
in harmony
sometimes we fight and fuss
but love gets the best of us cause
oh we are a family and always will be

I remember when
tell the story again

we are a family
and always will be
I am my family
my family is me
