Biography

Diane Kay is a Singer-Songwriter from Acworth, Georgia.

Diane's freshman CD, "Help Me Decide" was released in 2007 with Creative Soul Records of Nashville, TN. and is a mixture of contemporary, ballads, alternative and rock styles. She is currently working on her sophomore CD that will have a couple of easy listening songs but is swaying toward her "rock/alternative" side.

Diane's songwriting is considered to be more of a "down to earth, realisitc" approach to life as a Christain and the struggles that most don't talk about, least sing about. Diane has turned many heads of those who are not "into" Christian music.

Since the release of her freshman CD, Diane has formed a group of musicians to reflect the quality produced by Eric Copeland, who provided Diane with studio musicians that have played for Rich Mullins, Michael W. Smith, Amy Grant, Peter Frampton. Bob Segar and Johnny Cash.

Lyrics

IF I GO ALONE

Written By: DIANE KAY COONS

IF I GO ALONE-(Isaiah 30:15)

Words & Music Written By: Diane Kay Coons-2001

It’s getting hard, to climb up this mountain
With every turn is adversity
I knew before, I started this journey
From failing times it won’t be easy

How can I get to the mountaintop
If I go alone?

I come in prayer, searching for answers
Patience is unknown to me,
I seek your word for justification
And my obstinance is my enemy, yeah

‘Cause I can’t get to the mountaintop,
If I go alone,

In repentance and rest is my salvation
In quietness and trust is my strength
Woah to those with an obstinate nature
Cause you can’t get to the mountaintop,
If you go alone
If you go alone

Who do I trust, who do I run from?
Discerning some is difficult to me,
Open my eyes let my ears hear you
And let Your spirit reign down on me, yeah!

Cause I can’t get to the mountaintop
If I go alone

In repentance and rest is your salvation
In quietness and trust is your strength
Woah to those with an obstinate nature
Cause you can’t get to the mountaintop,
If you go alone, If you go alone

Don’t go alone
Don’t go alone

LEAD ME

Written By: DIANE KAY COONS

LEAD ME
Words & Music Written By Diane K. Coons/Jeff Coons 2006

Where are you leading me, don’t know which way to turn
Looking ahead and not behind me;

Do I walk on ahead or do I just stand still?
I’m confident, my faith will find me!

Your word says to walk by faith
Not by sight nor by my strength
I should not let fear control
For by Your spirit I am whole

I’m going Your way, Please lead me

Why should I worry when, You have me in Your hand
You are the maker of all things;

Why should I tarry in the river of distress?
When there is power in You, my King!

Your word says to walk by faith
Not by sight nor by my strength
I should not let fear control
For by Your spirit I am whole

I’m going Your way, so lead me

Where You lead, I will follow
Where You lead I will follow
Where You lead I will follow
Where You lead I will follow.

Your word says to walk by faith
Not by sight nor by my strength
I should not let fear control
For by Your spirit I am whole

Where are you leading me, don’t know which way to turn;

I’m going Your way, Please lead me

ME & JESUS

Written By: DIANE KAY COONS

ME & JESUS
Words & Music Written By Diane K. Coons-2001

When I was, a little girl, I lived in my own little world
I was the baby of five.

My two sisters were too busy, my brother’s always teasing me
They barely knew I was alive.

I didn’t mind, because Jesus was there
He was sitting in my little rocking chair
Having tea parties and playing with my toys; He was
Filling my heart with His wondrous love and joy

As the years went by, hearing the story always made me cry;
My friend Jesus died for me.

Oh and I will, never forget, that winter day, I went to the altar and prayed,
“Jesus Live in my heart eternally”!


I knew it was time, because Jesus was there,
Holding my hand His love and grace filled the air;
I thought that I could, fly high like a dove, as He,
Filled my heart with His wondrous, joy and love.


Looking back as a rebellious teen,
He has more patience than I ever seen,
Through all the tears I cried.

All the hardship and tragedy,
All those years of adversity
And when both my parents died.

I know for sure, that Jesus is here
And I still have that little rocking chair,
The child that first loved Him, is alive in my heart,
You see, Me and Jesus we will never, ever part!

I thank Him for dying and living and His mercy forgiving; I thank Him for loving me!

WHO YOU ARE TO ME

Written By: DIANE KAY COONS

Like the love for my dearest brother
And the closeness of my best friend
The beauty of the sun that is setting
On the ocean at the days end

The joyful song that the birds are singing
In the morning when I rise
The brightest star shining down from heaven
And the twinkling in my eyes

That’s who you are to me,
All around I see Your beauty
Only Your love is greater you see,
Than the peace and joy that loving You brings

Cause that’s who You are to me


I hear You call, I feel Your presence,
I see Your hand in my life every day
You take my hand and you gently lead me,
If I start to lose my way

You are the song, written in my heart,
Sweet melody that never ends
Each note and chord plays a sweet hymn,
About my Savior and my friend

That’s who You are to me,
All around I see Your beauty
Only Your love is greater you see,
Than the peace and joy that loving You brings

That’s who You are to me
That’s who You are to me
That’s who You are to me

That’s who You are to me

HELP ME DECIDE

Written By: DIANE KAY COONS

HELP ME DECIDE: For My son, Geoffrey
Words & Music Written By Diane K. Coons- 2006

When I was young, barely nineteen,
The world in my hands, or so it seemed
I was in love with a young man,
Things were good, we were making plans

To be together, our love was forever

One fateful day everything changed,
I always remember that cold rainy day
Told him a baby was coming soon,
With words of anger, he said I must choose

My heart fell to the floor, as he walked out the door

As I sat there alone with tears rolling down
Conflicting emotions just spinning around
I fell on my knees and in my shame
Raised up my hands and called out His name

Dear Jesus I cried, please help me decide
With all odds against me how can I even try
Please tell me how, can I do this now
And leave the life I’m living, for the new life that’s growing inside

Please help me decide

As I prayed, I felt arms of love,
Comforting me and a voice above
Said “you know in your heart what to do
Don’t be afraid, I will be with you”

Oh, I embraced, oh the task that I faced

With anticipation the day had come,
I looked in the eyes of my precious son
I kissed him gently and held him close,
And with all my strength, I prayed for us both

Dear Jesus I cried, please help me decide
With all odds against me how can I even try?
Please tell me how, to be a good mother now
And teach him that life is worth living and the way to the truth and the light.

Please help me decide

All grown up, my son came to me and said “mom, she’s having a baby”…

Dear Jesus I cried, please help him decide,
With all odds against him, please help him to try
Please show him how, he can do this now
And leave the life he’s living, for the new life that’s growing inside

Please help him decide................
