Day's Difference

Day's Difference

BandRockPop

Days Difference sounds like the offspring of Coldplay, U2, and the Fray (yes, that's three partners... anything is possible these days). They are sensible and honest, intense and melodic. They are a dedicated group of musicians (composed of two sets of brothers) passionate about their music.

Biography

Music is about people. Days Difference believes this with every song they write. "Experience, conviction, and the passions and sorrows of life really define who people are," says vocalist Jeremy Smith. "Really, it's the things we and the people around us go through every day that inspire us to write and play. We want to create something tangible, something our audience can relate to. That's what we are about." Drummer, Jonathan Smith, adds, "Our band's name, Days Difference, is the idea that everyone should live each day like its their last. Live life to the fullest. Don't regret not pursuing what you really love. Take risks, jump at challenges."

The two sets of brothers have done just that. They started the band in the spring of 2004. Both Jonathan and Jeremiah Ricks left college. Jeremy turned down music scholarship opportunities. Micah Ricks forewent college all together. They all quit their day jobs early in 2006 to focus fully on the band.

As for their live shows, they are a powerful, raw, display of emotion. The music swells from intimate to intense. Days Difference believes in allowing space within their music. "We feel the most passionate perfomances come from well-written songs that are also simplistic in nature," shares guitarist Jeremiah. "You can't really hide mistakes when every instrument can be heard as clearly as the next. It makes for a much better experience for the listener." "It's like the CD, but better," includes bassist Micah.

The band's first full length album, Numbers, is set to release June 5, 2007. It is a culmination of the growth and experiences Days Difference has shared over the past two years. "Our sound has gone through multiple changes since we first started. It's taken time to find what works and doesn't work," explains Jeremy. "We've begun to really define what we're doing musically. The album is a testament of just that."

Lyrics

Unaware

Written By: Days Difference

19I'll play the fool tonight
And bite my tongue
'Cause everything that makes this right
Disappoints

You're standing there
Unaware darling
Of what you're worth
Unaware

I'll take a chance this time
And speak my mind
Never to say
What if

You're standing there
With your hair darling
Across your face
Unaware, so unaware

Time will go on as it should
Never changing shape
Will you hold on to the things
That hold you back?

When the people turn and the lights fade away
Will you have lived according to their way?
That's not living at all
If you don't take this chance to fall

Time will go on as it should
Never changing shape
Will you hold on to the things
That hold you back?

Time will go never changing
Darling what about you?

Parallels

26This could be so much better
This could be so much worse
But I’ll continue learning from
Mistakes I’ve made, wrong I’ve done

If nothing’s wrong, nothing’s right
It’s unexplainable

Caught up in a conversation
With strangers who interrupt
So count your words and make them count
‘Cause what you say is what you get

If nothing’s wrong, nothing’s right
It’s unexplainable
This is where we crash and burn
Between two parallels

We stay out all day
Trying to find the way
But we won’t find it ever
So linger here, linger here
And fly away, fly away

If nothing’s wrong, nothing’s right
It’s unexplainable
This is where we crash and burn
Between two parallels

If nothing’s wrong, nothing’s right
This is where we crash and burn

Sidewalks

Written By: Days Difference

28I stand by a busy street
Motion passes by
She walks across from me
Starlight in her eyes
A simple phrase
The perfect line
I meet her gaze
She catches mine

How I wish for you to come
To my side of the sidewalk
If you would take my hand
I'd take you to a place
Where simpler things are true

I spend all my money's worth
Trying to get to you
I call in the pouring rain
From a phone booth
This avenue
Is a parking lot
The lights are red but I
I can't stop

How I wish for you to come
To my side of the sidewalk
If you would take my hand
I'd take you to a place
Where simpler things are true

(incoherent chanting)

How I wish for you to come
To my side of the sidewalk
If you would take my hand
If you would take my hand
If you would take my hand

How I wish for you to come
To my side of the sidewalk
If you would take my hand
I'd take you to a place
Where simpler things are true

Stay

Written By: Days Difference

There's more to life than compromise
He says to her
There's more to this than your own bliss
He says again

Don't you say your last goodbye
And throw away this beautiful life

Never lose your pretty smile
And its timing too
Never lose your innocence
It's shining through

Don't you say your last goodbye
And throw away this beautiful life

Stay, please stay

I won't let you down, I won't let you down, no
I won't let you down, I won't let you down, no
I can't let you go

She turns to walk away
But he runs after her

Don't you say your last goodbye
And throw away this beautiful life

Stay, please stay
