Biography

Diamond and Jules was the name we choose to show the lighter side of our personalities and also to reflect the high value we place on the music we make. We are otherwise known as Laurel Arkison, (nee Rennie), and Joe Zupo. We are both Canadians, born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, and we have been making music together for over 16 years.
Laurel’s love of singing stems from her high school days in the choir and her stage production experiences. She has performed in various community events, singing with local bands along the way, and has recorded on several CD projects.
Joe has been in several professional bands over the years, and has written and recorded over a hundred songs. He’s been playing guitar for over 40 years and loving every minute of it. Laurel and Joe began writing together in 2007 and have completed 40 original songs to date. We really love the challenge of coming up with new songs to record and are looking forward to the future.
We would like to find a Publisher to help us get our music heard by other artists and to be considered for TV and Movie projects.

Lyrics

Something That You Said

Written By: Joe Zupo

It Was Something That You Said,
That Made Me Turn My Head,
If I'd Only Closed My Eyes,
Maybe I’d Still Believe Your Lies,
- - -

Well. . . You Had Me In The Dark, For A While.
Or Maybe, I Just Didn’t Want To Know.
But This Time, I’ve Got To Face It All.
And So, I Have To Say Goodbye!

Now The Sun Has Turned Away,
And The Rain Is On It's Way.
Like The Painting On The Wall,
I Am Frozen By It All,
I Am Frozen By It All.

This Is Goodbye

Written By: Joe Zupo

1st Verse
Don’t Let Anybody Tell You.
That It’s Easy To Say Goodbye.

I Never Wanted
To Make You Cry
But I Can See The Tears
Fallin’ From Your Eyes
And I’m Sorry Baby,
But This Is Goodbye!

2nd Verse
Don’t Let Anybody Tell You.
That It’s Easy To Walk Away.

I Couldn’t Find The Words
I Needed To Say
‘Til I Found A Way
To Tell You Today
That’s It’s Over Baby
This Is Goodbye!

Bridge
I Know We Both Tried, To Work Things Out,
But We Lost The Good Things, That Love Is About,
And Nothin’ We Say, Can Save It Today!

Instrumental

I Never Wanted, To Make You Cry
But I Can See The Tears, Fallin’ From Your Eyes
And I’m Sorry Baby, But This Is Goodbye!
This Is Goodbye
This Is Goodbye.
This Is Goodbye!

Beat The Blues

Written By: Joe Zupo

Whenever I'm Feeling Sad,
I Think about the Good Times that I've Had,
When you're Down you Gotta Get Back Up,
When you Lose you Gotta Tough It Up,
At the end of the Day,
It's What you Do - Not What you Say.
That's the Way You Beat the Blues.

CHORUS
That's the Way You Beat the Blues,
Don't Let the Blues Get a Hold of You,
All you Gotta Do is Choose,
That's the Way! - - You Beat the Blues!

Whenever I'm Feeling Blue,
I think about the things I’m Gonna’ Do,
When you're Down you Gotta Get Back Up,
When you Lose you Gotta Tough It Up,
At the end of the Day,
It's What you Do - Not What you Say.
That's the Way You Beat the Blues.

CHORUS
That's the Way You Beat the Blues,
Never Let the Blues Get the Best of You,
All you Gotta Do is Choose,
That's the Way! - - You Beat the Blues!
That's the Way! - - You Beat the Blues!

INSTRUMENTAL VERSE

At the end of the Day,
It's What you Do - Not What you Say.
That's the Way You Beat the Blues.

You Can't Find The Time

Written By: Joe Zupo

Somebody Must Be Pullin’ Your Chain,
If You Think I'm Comin’ Back Again.

I'm Not Surprised You Got It All Wrong,
Come Tomorrow And I'll Be Gone.

Chorus:
All You Had To Do Was Hold Me For A While,
Kiss Me Softly And Give Me One Of Your Smiles,
But You Can't Find The Time.

Bridge:
Baby How Can I Go On, This Way?
When All We The Love We Had Is Gone, Away,
Baby I Waited Here Too Long, For You,
Come Tomorrow And I'll Be Gone. Oh Yes I Will.

Instrumental

Chorus:
All You Had To Do Was Hold Me For A While,
Kiss Me Softly And Give Me One Of Your Smiles,
But You Can't Find The Time.

You Never Listen To A Word I Say,
And Baby I Just Can't Live That Way.
Now The Only Thing We Ever Do At Night,
Is Scream And Holler, And Fuss And Fight.

Chorus:
All You Had To Do Was Hold Me For A While,
Kiss Me Softly And Give Me One Of Your Smiles,
But You Can't Find The Time.

No You Can't Find The Time.
No, No, No.
You Can't Find The Time.

Never Let You Go

Written By: Laurel Arkison/Joe Zupo

I saw you standing there,
With sunlight in your hair,
You were a vision to behold.
I never thought that I,
Could be so hypnotized,
But babe you put my heart on hold.

CHORUS
I just can’t breath without you,
My heart won’t take the pain.
I just can’t live without you calling my name.
We’re just so good together; I need to let you know,
I’ll never let you go.

I walked right up to you,
You smiled as if you knew,
Exactly what was on my mind.
We both just said hello,
It didn’t take long to know,
You’d be forever by my side.

CHORUS
I just can’t breath without you,
My heart won’t take the pain.
I just can’t live without you calling my name.
We’re just so good together, I need to let you know,
I’ll never let you go.

FINALE
I just can’t breath without you, I’m never gonna let you go,
I just can’t live without you, I’m never gonna let you go,
I just can’t breath without you, I’m never gonna let you go,
I just can’t live without you, I’m never gonna let you go,
No, I’ll never let you go,
No, I’ll never let you go.
