about

First single from the album - written by Clark while on honeymoon in Brasil. Diana says "Started writing this jet lagged in 2009 in a Pousada (BnB) in Paraty, Brazil. I wanted to write a happy song (seeing I was on honeymoon and all). The granite hills enclosing Rio’s beaches and their shadows was the inspiration for “winning while I’m losing” lyrics’ play on shadow and light. I finished the song in Melbourne after (Producer) Greg Arnold heard and loved the psychedelic major/minor melody. He hit it with the 60s treatment. Rolling on with the image of that era, we got a killer clip together on a St Kilda rooftop (Directed by Rachael Lucas), one of the most blissful arvos of my life…" Sunny Daze was released as a single in 2013.

lyrics

Every morning in the summertime
I go walking before the sun is high
Feel it creeping, like the shadow of a mountain moving
As a change comes without a choosing---

On the weekend in the winter time 
I go searching for a special wine
Release me, yeah the warm and bitter bite is soothing
As a change comes while kinda choosing---

It’s winning while I’m losing
Dancing while I’m sleeping
Chancing while I’m cheating---

Now we’re rocking on a rollin’ night
There’s no stopping just to be polite
Feel it grooving, ah the drum and base distort right through you
And the change you crave comes cruising--- right up to you

Just like a lover’s gaze
A very special place
A lovely sunny daze

And here is the sun again
I feel its warm embrace
Lifting me like a friend
Back to a secret space


It’s winning while I’m losing
Dancing while I’m sleeping
Chancing while, it’s like a lover’s gaze
A very special place
A lovely sunny daze…
