about

Co-written with Doug de Vries. Amandinha "Began it’s evolution in 2005 when Doug (my husband, collaborator and guitarist) undertook to write a composition a day for 6 months. I overheard him writing an instrumental piece for his daughter Amanda’s birthday. The melody morphed and hooked into my heart, I knew I needed to follow this one through. I tried writing the lyrics for a long time but they were too mushy. Doug helped crystallise it with the line 'feather in the air, let it take you there'. Lisa Miller (via Push songs) helped me realise the song was going to work, and it was time to record it. I premiered it along with my band ‘The Sunny Set’ at Melbourne Fringe in 2011. The piano on the recording is the guide track and I assumed I’d go back to re-record, but the fragility works to symbolise the apprehension of a parent as their child is gearing up to leave home…"

lyrics

Written by Diana May Clark & Doug de Vries

Amandinha, a senhorinha

The road is yours now pave the stone

In your own colour
Create, discover 
It’s all your call now where to go

Feather in the air

Let it take you there

Oh-oo, oh-oo

Amandinha a senhorinha

The sweetness in life springs for all

Mother of pearl, our golden Dutch girl

On windmill thermals travelling light-

First taste of Sangria

Dança Brasileira

If a page should ever tear

I will be there 
Oh my Amanda

Writing your own chapters

New vistas to capture

If a page should ever tear

I will be there
Oh my Amandinha
