GDaisy is a faith-oriented Christian acoustic solo singer/songwriter writing social commentary music with a message - some says it's about "yuppie discontents!" Live performances focus on community events and venues that are positive, healthy, & family-oriented.

Biography

Grayland Daisy is a vehicle for original songs with a message of hope and change for a shared future under God's wing. The songs write themselves, I feel like I just transcribe them and they keep coming....and I keep playing them....I do as I'm told!

Ode to Addiction

Written By: Susan Daicoff Dunn

Ode to Addiction
© 2008 Susan Daicoff Dunn

Goodbye old friend/it’s been a long run
Please don’t call me/we’ve had all our fun
You don’t live here anymore

I can’t reach you/and you won’t listen
I can’t change you/this time it’s different
You don’t live here anymore

I can’t hear you/and I won’t listen
You can’t reach me/this time I’m different
I don’t need you anymore
No I don’t need you anymore

Falling outwards and
falling inwards
Pouring into and pouring out of
Rain is pouring down on me
Oh the rain is pouring down on me
Rain is pouring down on me
Down on me

Jesus touch me/ and I will listen
Jesus hold me/this time I’m different
Jesus pour Your grace on me
Oh Jesus pour Your grace on me
Jesus pour Your grace on me
On me

Global Warming (I Will Be)

Written By: Susan Daicoff Dunn

I Will Be (Global Warming) © Susan Daicoff Dunn, 2007.

Even if we changed
We couldn’t undo what we’ve done
we’re looking at a whole world crumbling
feels like it’s coming undone

Chorus: I will be – always with you
I will – I will be
I will be – always by your side

Towers may fall (twin towers) / rivers run dry as a bone (drought)
Cities wash into the sea (tsunamis) / and the children go without a home (Katrina)

Chorus

Fire may rush through the land (wildfire) and the / water may rise (global warming)
People fall by their own hand (war) / and clouds cover the skies (pollution)

Chorus

Don’t lose your love/ don’t lose your hope/ don’t lose your way
I will always be with you/ I will always be with you

Don’t lose your strength/ don’t you lose your faith/ don’t lose your peace
I will always be with you/ I will always be with you
I will always be with you / I will always be with you
I will always be with you

Fall Apart Again

Written By: Susan Daicoff Dunn

Fall Apart Again
© Susan Daicoff Dunn, 2007.

Verse 1: Have you ever had a thing of beauty
Break into a million pieces
Scatter all across your floor
Run screaming out your door

Verse 2: Have you ever had something precious
Fall apart a thousand ways
Have you ever wished it hadn’t
And tried to put it all back together again?

Chorus 1: I tried to put it all back together
Hang up all the pictures again
Write your name across the mailbox
Make today into what was then
I tried to put it all back together
Hang up all the pictures again
Jam the ring back on your finger
I tried to put it all back together again

Chorus 2: Unh-hunh unh-hunh
All back together again
Unh-hunh unh-hunh
All back together again

Verse 1: Have you ever had a thing of beauty
Break into a million pieces
Have you ever wished it hadn’t
And tried to put it all back together again?

Bridge 1: Fall apart again, we’re all apart again, fall apart, with my heart, all apart

Verse 3: Now I gotta find my life again
Now I gotta find myself again
Find the person I became
The last time the pieces shattered

Verse 4: Time to fix the broken whole
Time to heal the heartsick sore
Walk away without another
And be a person all back together again

Bridge 2: I’m all apart again, I’m all apart again, gonna start, with my heart, all apart

Chorus 2

Verse 1
Verse 2
