It won't make it better, no way You can't have control over it. It won't make it better, no way You don't have control over it Your grandmother soon came to learn to honour the lives that have been Your grandmother wants you to learn to mourn and to keep on living Your mother she feels just the same when she has a loss or a grief Your mother feels the same when she has been treated badly Cry, cry, cry cry no more Cry, cry cry, cry regret Cry, cry cry, cry no more Try, try, try now forget Take a look around the world - there is so much more to see You can honour what is gone and be free Yes, it's your right to be alive, laughing living in each day There's a chance each road you take Your grandfather soon came to learn to honour the lives that have been Your grandfather wants you to learn to mourn and to keep on loving Your father he feels just the same whenever he makes a mistake Your father feels the same whenever he carries heartache Cry, cry, cry cry no more Cry, cry cry, cry regret Cry, cry cry, cry no more Try, try, try now forget Take a look around the world - there is so much more to do You can honour what is gone and be true Yes, it's your right to be alive, laughing breathing in each day There's a chance each road you take

She dances beside the firelight Her elegance is sheathed in dust tonight Shekere, silk and skin... Riding the sound she spins around and draws you in Awakening you from descending into darkness and shades of blue Distillation of spirit she's blending stronger than you're accustomed to The aching that seems never ending ascends from you right on cue Awakening you from descending into 3 Shadows of blue...

Mama Africa, been giving all her life in groove and rhythm We're taking everything she's given Every season Through war and drought her tears renew the tempo of Bahia, People got to hear!

Cais (Quay) 06:12
For those who want to set themselves free I invent a quay I invent more than the solitude allows me I invent the love and well know the pain of finding it If I want to be happy I invent a sea I invent a dreamer in me For those who want to follow me I want more I follow the path that I always wanted to And I have a sailboat ready to depart I invent a quay And I know the right time To launch myself from it

It's early evening as the sun goes down I'm walking thus red earth alone I get the feeling there are spirits around And I'm not really on my own It's reassuring to sense something out there With a wisdom infinite Clearing my mind of fear I breathe into time And I know that I'll be fine Breathe into time And when you see me you will know my smile Like we've been hand in hand before We might deny it for a little while But we will meet again for sure Anticipation keeps me poised for the ride As our lives are meant to be aligned One can't resist the pull that fate has designed And you know that I'll be kind Breathe into time We face the morning dew together now There's bird call right outside the door And all the challenges we handle somehow Though sometimes hell seeps through the floor We know in nature there is balance divine We remind ourselves time after time Instinctively there's goodness in human kind And we know that we'll be fine Breathe into Time

Morning, such a nice morning Of a happy day that has begun The sun has risen into the sky And shone in every heart After this happy day I don't know if another will come And our tomorrow After all such a beautiful tomorrow of Carnival My heart sings Joy has returned - so happy The morning of this love Morning, such a morning In life there's a new song Singing only of your eyes Your smile and your hands, For there has to be a day when you come From the strings of my guitar Which seek only your love Comes a voice to speak Of the kisses lost in your lips My heart sings Joy has returned - so happy the morning of this love!

about

Highlights of the trio’s 2009 Australian Tour teaming Diana Clark’s warm, intimate English/Portuguese vocals & Doug de Vries’ eloquent, sparkling 7-string guitar with Stephen Grant’s masterfully understated accordion. Bossa nova, Samba, Milton Nascimento, Baden Powell, Guinga & more...

“Diana’s voice…seductive & engaging…with de Vries improvising, using an impressive finger-style technique on 7 string guitar…also complementing Di’s voice by singing counterpoint melodies while Grant uplifted the music further still with his transcendental accompanying…truly a night of splendour from three of this country’s finest musicians.” President Albury-Wodonga Jazz Society
