scene.

Over the last 10+ years Diana has entertained people across
Canada, the USA and Europe. She has graced every type of stage from
coffee shops to large festivals. “I love to play my songs to anyone
interested in connecting to the human experience” she explains, “I write
from the heart and the feedback from my fans has been a great
inspiration to me. I write about real life and people can connect to

feeling my son kick while tracking vocals and guitar was like having two
producers tell you what to do” She jests,  “But I’m ready to hit the
ground running with this new album and I can’t wait to get back out
there”.

 

 







Lyrics

Walk

Written By: Diana Catherine

Walk:
Yeah I gotta walk
I gotta do what feels right
Yeah I gotta Walk
Gotta wander till I die
Well yes it sounds absurd to you
but I’ll be a better man by the time I’m through
I gotta walk

Yeah I gotta drive
These Canadian highways through
Yeah I gotta drive
Watch the cities pass me by
Now yes I fell in love with you
but I still gotta go I need something new
I gotta walk

Well this itchy, crazy, feelings got me stirring in side
When I see you on that stage I watch my heart flutter by
Well I know that you are leaving I know you can’t stay
But that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy each others company
24 weeks on down the road
I’ll see you again but for now I know
You gotta walk

Yeah I gotta walk
I’m done with suffering and strife
Yeah I gotta walk
Right back into your life
Well Sixteen shots of whiskey ago
I think I realized but now I know
You gotta walk

Tavelin Man

Written By: Diana Catherine

Travelin’ Man:

Well he’s my travelin’ man
And he does what he can
Yes he’s my travelin’ man
He makes me feel like a real woman

Yeah he was born for the road
Never does what he’s told
Yeah he’s my travelin’ man
He’s the best damn thing that I’ve ever seen

Well he walks around the room on the edge of his shoes
He’s witty like the devil boy can sing the blues
Like fire in the darkness he can light up a room
He’s my man and I know he ain’t going home with you

Yes he’s my travelin’ man
And he does what he can
Yes he’s my travelin’ man
You know he makes me feel like a real woman

He can’t be bought or sold
Carries a heavy load
Yes he’s my travelin’ man
He provides for me honey like no other man can

Well I can see it in his eyes he’s got that state of mind
When he loses his temper he must go blind
He’s not the kind of fella that would give up to soon
The man’s gotta a charm, can make anyone swoon
When he smiles at me feels like I’m the only one in the room

Yes he’s my travelin’ man
And he does what he can
Yes he’s my travelin’ man
You know he makes me feel like a real woman

Sober(is too hard to stay)

Written By: Diana Catherine

Sober (Is too hard to stay):

Well I like to drink
And I like to fight
And I like to smoke them big fat cigars
Outside the honky tonks and bars
My pay cheques comin’ and I’m gonna drink my blues away

Like a stone that grows no moss
I keep on rollin’ even though I’m lost
I tend to drink my blues away
Cuz sober is too hard to stay

Well I like to drink
And I like to flirt
And I’d like to find a gal who doesn’t look at me and see a dollar sign
Hanging in the poor house is where she’d have me be

Like a stone that grows no moss
I keep on rollin’ even though I’m lost
I tend to drink my blues away
Cuz sober is too hard to stay

Well I like to toke
Hey I like the smoke
Yeah I’m waiting for the day that I’m finally free
this vice don’t have a grip on me
I’ve found my solace and I’d like to take you here with me

Like a stone that grows no moss
I keep on rollin’ even though I’m lost
I tend to drink my blues away
Cuz sober is too hard to stay

Well I like to drink and I like to fight and I like to smoke…

Lucinda

Written By: Diana Di Giovanni

Lucinda:

Well he’s floating down the river
Got two things on his mind
Gambling coursing through his veins
And the woman he left behind
He’s paralyzed with fear
Vision isn’t clear
And still he travels a lonely road
That lead away from her

Lucinda don’t you see he wants your company
He’d sail across the sands of time to fall at your feet
Scars are left to show the past was real
Lucinda watch the hands of time decide your destiny

Lucinda don’t you see
Lucinda don’t you see
Your house of cards are falling all around me

When Oscar was a boy he lost his mother dear
His fathers iron fist drove him further to the west
They’ll pray for many nights
They’ll pray for many more
His safe return will never come
His journey had begun

Lucinda don’t you see he wants your company
He’d sail across the sands of time to fall at your feet
Scars are left to show the past was real
Lucinda watch the hands of time decide your destiny

Lucinda don’t you see
Lucinda don’t you see
Your house of cards are falling all around me

He appears a little slow
But the boy he ain’t a fool
What you think and what you know
Are two different points of view

Defy all their rules
Be as bold as they are cruel
For innocent games can change the minds and lives
Of innocent fools

Lucinda don’t you see he wants your company
He’d sail across the sands of time to fall at your feet
Scars are left to show the past was real
Lucinda watch the hands of time decide your destiny

Lucinda don’t you see
Lucinda don’t you see
Lucinda can’t you see
Lucinda can you see
Your house of cards are falling all around me
