about

After a successful career with New York punk bands Stupid and The Sobs, Dana released her first solo album, Going Gone, in 2008. Recorded and mixed over a year and a half period between New York, London and Paris. She went back to her roots in classical music and storytelling to create the lush orchestral arrangements to blend with her raw singer/songwriter lyrics of love and loss.

Track Name: Go Away
If I stay here will it all just go away
What you say won’t count
If I close my eyes will it all just disappear
I won’t hear you

Now I am leaving you
Won’t fight my way out of here
Not a thing you can do
Won’t fight my way out of here
When it’s broken into two
Won’t fight my way out of here
Wrapped in shades of blue

If I stay here will it all just go away
And this day wouldn’t count
If I close my eyes will it change the way you feel
It’s not real

Now I am leaving you
Won’t fight my way out of here
Not a thing you can do
Won’t fight my way out of here
When it’s broken into two
Won’t fight my way out of here
Wrapped in shades of blue

If I stay here will it all just go away
Track Name: Right Place Wrong Time
It’s the right place at the wrong time
But I wanna see you, I gotta see you
It’s the right face on the wrong dime
But I wanna see you, I gotta see you

And I’m ok on the comeback
I don’t wanna need you
No I don’t need you
Yeah I’m alright if I don’t crack
I will never need you
Oh how I need you

I don’t care about tomorrow and consequences
I’ll go bonkers if I think of the circumstances
I’ll know when I see it coming and you go running
But I don’t care what happens to myself

It’s the right guy with the wrong line
So I’m gonna change it, yeah rearrange it
It’s the wrong way at the right sign
So I’m gonna say it, I’ll never say it

Yeah I’m ok on the comeback
I don’t wanna break it, I know you’ll take it
Yeah I’m alright if I don’t crack
I don’t wanna say it, don’t make me say it

I don’t care about tomorrow and consequences
I’ll go bonkers if I think of the circumstances
I’ll know when I see it coming and you go running
But I don’t care what happens to myself

There’s a lot I got to consider
If I ever say goodbye to you
Shine the shit right out of my pleasure
When is it all gonna end?
When is it all gonna end?
Oh when is it all gonna end?
Track Name: Without You
How can I have been the one
Who left you high and dry when you were on the run
Now tell me square
How could you have never seen it coming at you baby
No I’m not the one and it ain’t fair

Cry me up another tear if I could only dial back a dozen years
It’s just enough to know you’re killing me
Ain’t it awful, ain’t it strange
When you’re the one who’s moving out now in the rain
It’s just enough to know you’re killing me
Without you here

How can it have come to this
I’ve known you half my life and now you’re blowing it
No we ain’t square
I could tear you into two
Is this the gift I get my dear for loving you
You don’t play fair

Cry me up another tear if I could only dial back a dozen years
It’s just enough to know you’re killing me
Ain’t it awful, ain’t it strange
When you’re the one who’s moving out now in the rain
It’s just enough to know you’re killing me
Without you here
Track Name: Sorry
You can take all you want but you won’t leave it alone
You can want all you take cause you will always come home
If I had all the answers, I would spill them like sand
But then life wasn’t always this strange

Sorry is not an answer
Sorry is just a bad compromise
Sorry won’t save you from disaster
You’re falling from grace right in front of my eyes
Sorry may entertain you
But it doesn’t change my mind
Sorry is a sorry excuse
For you’re dying and you don’t know why

So I’m here all alone and I don’t know what to do
My head is a wreck cause all these thoughts are of you
Maybe somehow in the end you ain’t the one who’s to blame
For my life has been passing my by

Sorry is not an answer
Sorry is just a bad compromise
Sorry won’t save you from disaster
You’re falling from grace right in front of my eyes
Sorry may entertain you
But it doesn’t change my mind
Sorry is a sorry excuse
For you’re dying and you don’t know why
Track Name: I Don't Mind
No it’s not that it might matter if I stay here in the end
For this heart of mine’s been shattered by those same four words again
No it does not make a difference that you don’t know it by now
I’ll keep chasing all your daggers you’ve returned to me somehow

I don’t wanna talk about it cause I’m just fine
It’s not what I had expected but I don’t mind

When I gave my love a cherry, she returned it to my hand
Said it’s not you who I’ll marry as she rolled right out again
No it does not make a difference that you don’t know it by now
I’ll keep chasing all those daggers you’ve returned to me somehow

I don’t wanna talk about it cause I’m just fine
It’s not what I had expected but I don’t mind

I don’t mind
Take back the crap you gave me in your tragedy
I’m not the asshole you made yourself out to be
Fuck all your faults, I take everything back
Thanks then for nothing for coming then going
I’m just fine
I don’t mind

I don’t wanna talk about it cause I’m just fine
It’s not what I had expected but I don’t mind
Track Name: Tiger Song
I’m just calling so you know know know
There’s a girl in Brooklyn who loves you so
She’s sweet on you like caramel
And if you ask her, she will tell you

Tiger I adore you
I thank the stars above you
I’ll wrap these arms around you and make you mine
For when it’s said and done
I think I might have found the one
I’ll be kissing for a long, long time

You’re so sweet and foreign
I’ll kick your fucking door in
To cover you in kisses and make you mine
Yeah when it’s said and done
I know I finally found the one
I’ll be kissing for a long, long time
(Oui c’est vrai)
I’ll be hugging for a long, long time
(Tu sais c’est vrai)

I’ll be kissing and a hugging cause I love the way you’re loving
I’ll be kissing for a long, long time
Track Name: Avec Toi
Quand je suis avec toi
Quand tu es avec moi
L’allé des rats se transform un paradis

Quand tu es avec moi
Quand je suis avec toi
L’allé des rats se transform un paradis

I’ll follow blindly
I’ll take my time
There’s no use for crying au paradis

Quand je suis avec toi
Track Name: 25 Reasons
Now that time is slipping so quickly
And your voice gets further away
And my reasons multiply for leaving here
I’ve twenty-five reasons to stay

For twenty-five reasons I tell you
I’ve twenty-five more I could say
But none of my reasons can bring you
Back home when you’re so far away

But I’ll take the blame
I’ll carry the shame
On these shoulders where once laid your head
And I’ll try not to break
As I live all my days
In the house where I stand no one utters your name

Now that night has thickened so quickly
And my nights here with you are gone
And I don’t remember your laughter
All my tears seem to weep the same song

For twenty-five reasons I tell you
I’ve twenty-five more I could say
But none of my reasons can bring you
Back home when you’re so far away
Track Name: Be Mine
Be mine
I’ll never make you walk a straight line
I’ll wander around with you for all time
Why’d I wake up in tears today?

You’re gone
I know enough to know it goes wrong
Been leading up to this for so long
Why’d I wake up in tears today?

What’s wrong with falling down in pieces?
How come you make it look so easy?
I’m strong, but just enough to notice
What’s going on with me here?
I want you
Be mine

Be mine
Could not imagine you who I would find
Wrapping himself around in my mind
Why’d I wake up in tears today?

Somehow I hear your voice inside me right now
But you’re across an ocean, I’m down
Why’d I wake up in tears today?

Quit looking at me
Quit wasting my time
Quit fuckin’ with me
I like it

Sun don’t shine and the moon don’t glow since you asked me why and I told you so
I miss you baby
Track Name: Unforgiven
There was a time when we were lovers
Wrapped around each other like a twisted chain
Whispering lies like secret lovers
Bending the reasons for our own mistakes

What’s coming over me now?
Now you’re inside and you’re knocking
What’s coming over me now?
Oh you are the unforgiven

There was a time when you could haunt me
Wrapping around me like a twisted snake
Creeping and crawling, so sneaky, appalling
The reasons for your own mistakes

What’s coming over me now?
Now you’re inside and you’re knocking
What’s coming over me now?
Oh you are the unforgiven

I wouldn’t fit into your world in a bubble
The secrets that I carry are much too big
They wouldn’t fit into your picture puzzle
They still remember the horror you did
Come drown me
Come make it wash away
Unfound me
Give me a reason not to
Oh you are the unforgiven
Track Name: Accidentally
I’m sorry I accidentally drank your wine
I’m sorry I wasted all your precious time
I’m sorry for half the things I’ve done to you
The others I never even meant to do

I’m sorry I accidentally broke your glass
I’m sorry I never thought that I should ask
I’m sorry, I’m truly truly sorry
What’s done is done
Tonight I will dine on you

I’m sorry
I’m sorry
I’m sorry, truly sorry
You've got to believe me baby
When I call you up to say

I’m sorry I accidentally lost it when
I busted right through the bedroom door again
I’m sorry it all had to come down to this
I finished what started with a simple kiss

I’m sorry you accidentally made me wait
I’m sorry I accidentally took the bait
I’m sorry, truly truly sorry
What’s done is done
Tonight I will dine on you

I’m sorry
I’m sorry
I’m sorry, truly sorry
You're the only one who knew
You're the only one who cares

For all the heartache I have caused you
For all the trouble I have been
I never meant to go so far here
But now I’ve done my final sin

I’m sorry I turned it all into a mess
I’m sorry I ripped it out and burned the rest
I’m sorry, I’m truly truly sorry
What’s done is done
Tonight I will dine on you
Track Name: Rainy Night
Rainy night, quietly
I whisper your name silently
But you’re not here and I’m alone again
Summertime’s come and gone
The autumn leaves are moving on
And all I want’s for you to hold my hand

Floating, falling
Here me calling
Come to me my love
Come untie the girl inside me
I can’t get enough of

Rainy night, carelessly
I wonder if you dream of me
Oh am I yours and are you mine
How long must I wait til the time
Tonight I’ll dine on memories
On rainy night

Floating, falling
Here me calling
Come to me my love
Come untie the girl inside me
I can’t get enough of

Rainy night, patiently
I wear my heart out on my sleeve
So you might know
And you can see
How much of you has got into me
For all your joy and all your charm
And all those nights spent in your arms
I’ll hold onto the memory
On rainy night
