KISS ME LIKE THAT by Diane Nalini We've grown apart, you and I Expanding since the dawn of time And somewhere on their lonely way Your tender words suffered a delay Not just a lag, but a cooling down X-ray passion red-shifted to brown Oh be a fine girl, kiss me like that You said, be my fire girl Oh be a fine girl, kiss me like that You begged, be my fire girl... I lack the critical mass to collapse Your wispy halo of cold gas Rekindle the fire at the core Of the hot blue furnace we burned in before But I remember the early days Fusing bodies consumed in the blaze Oh be a fine girl, kiss me like that You said, be my fire girl Oh be a fine girl, kiss me like that You begged, be my fire girl... Words spiral out on their pointless flight Riding a carrier wave into the night But your cold eye settles only on dust Remnants of the Big Bang between us And will a new orbit bring you luck? Captured forever, or ever in flux? Oh be a fine girl, kiss me like that You said, be my fire girl Oh be a fine girl, kiss me like that You begged, be my fire girl...

CUANDO SALE LA LUNA by Diane Nalini Cuando sale la luna Se abren las ventanas Y el olor de la noche entra en suspiros Cuando sale la luna Pinta zonas de sombra De un azul tan frío que la nieve misma está celosa Nunca llega al fin de su eterno viaje Condenada a siempre amar al sol desde lejos Cuando sale la luna Más allá de las nubes Las estrellas de plata sonríen en el vacío

LOVE IN OUTER SPACE by Diane Nalini I tune my dial to the hydrogen line times pi 'Cause it's irrational just like me Will you meet me on the same frequency? Don't tell me that you've come down from the mountain top With all the answers on two slabs of stone You're just talking to the wind 'Cause no one likes to feel alone So meet me on the international channel of love Meet me on the international channel of love I sent a call on a telescope carved from stone It had a map of my neighbourhood We're just three rocks from the big ball of fire Don't tell me that you've never met a girl like me Who didn't flutter at your slightest smile You don't have to turn water to wine A little kindness will do fine Just meet me on the international channel of love Meet me on the international channel of love I wish the boys on Earth would just keep their peace And stop trying to tell me what to believe So if you're out there Honey, then just hold tight Cause hope is all I need, hope is all I need (meet me on the international channel of love meet me on the international channel of love) I'll hitch a ride on a satellite bound for Mars Cause maybe there I'll find something real I'm not looking for salvation, I just want to feel Don't tell me that you flew to me while other slept And made it home before the light of dawn Cause I don't need a miracle, Baby If I've got your love to keep me warm Meet me on the international channel of love Meet me on the international channel of love, etc.

LE TOURNESOL by Diane Nalini Approche, je n’te ferai pas de mal Offre-moi ta main, je t’emmènerai Là où les cauchemars s’effacent dans la nuit Loin de cette vie noyée sans cesse par la pluie Viens, ouvre doucement les yeux Sens-tu la chaleur de ma lumière À toi de suivre les traces de ma lueur Laisse mes rayons percer ton cœur Raconte-moi tes chagrins d’amour Tes larmes sècheront vite Chez moi tout s’évapore lorsque je sors, alors... Approche, je n’te ferai pas de mal Offre-moi ta main, je t’emmènerai Là où les cauchemars s’effacent dans la nuit Loin de cette vie noyée sans cesse par la pluie Viens, ouvre doucement les yeux Sens-tu la chaleur de ma lumière À toi de suivre les traces de ma lueur Laisse mes rayons percer ton cœur Pour que je t’échauffe de ma chaleur Laisse mes rayons percer ton cœur.

WINTER ECLIPSE by Diane Nalini The moon is peeking through the treetops She paints blue shadows on the ground Knee-deep in a snow drift I wait up While you pass hot toddies around Round, honey and whisky and lime Passing the time, passing the time You've planted lawn chairs in the snow bank We balance gingerly in place The night holds the promise of romance Just us in the vastness of space Space, twinkling stars in their grace Spinning through space, spinning through space I know it's exciting to stay up Apart from the cold it's bliss We don't want to miss this Christmas eclipse But really I must insist on blankets At last, Earth's shadow seems to sneak up The moon, she bathes in amber light Mid pour you stop talking and look up You're right, it's a marvelous sight Night, light from the rusty red glow Softens the snow, softens the snow I know it's exciting to stay up Apart from the cold it's bliss We don't want to miss this Christmas eclipse But really I must insist on blankets At last, Earth's shadow seems to sneak up The moon, she bathes in amber light Mid pour you stop talking and look up You're right, it's a marvelous sight Bright, light from the neighbours next door Turn off the light, turn off the light! Turn off... the light

MUNDOS ESCONDIDOS by Diane Nalini Chuva na estrada nessa noite, Amor Ando mirando no chão Adivinhando só Chuva na estrada nessa noite tão fría Tantos milagres perdidos Tantos beijos oferecidos Olhe a lua quase cheia Veja o seu lado escuro Olhe as nuvens de Maglhães Rastros de mundos escondidos Rastros de mundos escondidos, Amor Longe de tí Luz antiga das estrelas Brilha no meu coração

about

Diane's most recent album, Kiss Me Like That, is a collection of 13 songs celebrating humanity’s fascination with the sky. From the title track’s infectious rhythms, to ‘Cuando sale la luna’ – Diane’s sultry ode to the moon, her original compositions on this album are all influenced by the wonders of the sky and stars. Her six original songs are perfectly complemented by classic jazz standards chosen carefully for this project, like “Stardust”, “Skylark”, “They All Laughed”, as well as her intimate interpretations of folk & pop songs such as James Taylor’s “Sweet Baby James” and Sting’s “Valparaiso.”

REVIEWS:

"...Though Nalini's vocals and Kelly Jefferson's sax solo conjure magical nights, "Cuando Sale La Luna" (When the Moon Comes Out) makes me wish I understood Spanish."

-- Ashante Infantry, The Toronto Star


"Après Songs of Sweet Fire, qui réunissait des textes de Shakespeare mis en musique par la dame, ce quatrième opus présente, dans les langues du Barde, de Molière, de Cervantes et de Pessoa, de nouvelles chansons et quelques standards axés sur le thème des astres et du cosmos. Et pour cette célébration en musique de l’Année de l’astronomie, l’élégance, le charme et le swing sont toujours au rendez-vous. Décidément, une étoile (de moins en moins) méconnue au firmament du jazz vocal d’ici."

-- Stanley Péan, Voir (Four stars)
