about

Diana Rosalind Trimble New Orleans, Louisiana

After being discovered by Bobby McFerrin as a young vocal improviser in San Francisco, I continued to sing and write in experimental performance ensembles that remain important in the history of the 80s & 90s Bay Area arts scene, followed by one decade of tangling with the music biz in LA & NYC (read Little Tiger on here), then another in Europe, always making records of collabs along the way! ... more

Track Name: Lipstick Traces
Thought that I loved you
But I never knew you
Thought that I saw you
But I looked right through you
Like a vision that I saw
But wasn't quite sure
That I saw
We've all felt their wings brush past our sleeping faces
Angels may kiss you when you''re asleep
But they never leave
Lipstick traces...

Thought I could hurt you
But you never felt it
Your heart was like ice
Thought I could melt it
Believing impossible things
Always came so naturally
To me
In my dreams I have seen unbelievable places
Angels may kiss you when you''re asleep
But they never leave
Lipstick traces...

Gone like a storm
Ashes
On the wind
Borne

Born
Track Name: Half Light
Light shapes air
Like lovers embracing in the doorway
Half-drunken
In the half-light
Looking out over the land
That looks like lovers embracing
Arms, rocks, hair
Spread out over another and one
Air shapes light
And her beauty effaces my eyes

Like lovers embracing
Half drunken
In the doorway
in the Half-light

Here we are
In this moment, blossom
And everything is slow, blossom
Everything is clear
Slow, vast, clear
We blossom and dissappear

We are here
And the end has never
Seemed so near

Like blossoms decaying
Half-over
In the shadow
Of the half-light

Like blossoms decaying
Half-over
In the shadow
Of the half-light

Track Name: The Ecstasy
The Ecstasy - by John Donne
Track Name: Give Away My Fear
Once when I was falling
I saw the edge and flew towards it
If I could only look beyond it
Maybe I could grow fond of it

Give away give away my fear

Once when I was walking
I saw a train and ran towards it
If I run fast I know I'll make it
Cross the tracks and overtake it

Give away give away my fear
See me go see me go see me go
Go....

Once when I was dying
I saw my ghost and reached towards it
If I breathe slow I know I'll catch it
Put it on and re-attach it

Give away give away my fear
See me go see me go see me go
Go....
Track Name: Silver Plate
My past
In which you are bound
In which you are the dearest part
In which I find you smiling
And dressing my wounds
And drying my tears
This past
Which is a part of me
Will not let me pass
To
The sleep of forgetting

*

Bitter
I cast you away
What did you give to me?
What promises did you keep?
None, all gone, all hope, all longing
All sweet caress
And the comfort of your familiar face
And I
Must leave this place

*

Remember when I first loved you?
Felt the beauty of our shared fate?
Wanted to eat the stars with you
Carve the sun
On a silver plate
Silver Plate
Silver Plate
Silver Plate

*

Instead
I have left with barely a word
Hardly a burial
Behind us
A solemn shake of a sorrowful head
It's too late
It's too late

And I must leave this place

*

Bitter
I cast you away
What did you give to me?
What promises did you keep?
None, all gone, all hope, all longing
All sweet caress
Yet I could still find my way home
By following
The lines on your face

*

Remember when I first loved you?
Felt the beauty of our shared fate?
Wanted to eat the stars with you
Carve the sun
On a silver plate

Track Name: The Beloved (fragment)
The Beloved is a face
The shape of which held in memory
Can never be distorted
The Beloved is a much read book
In the turning of whose pages a new discovery
Is always made
The Beloved is a banquet
To which hunger has brought us
That we may serve as well as feast
The Beloved is a music
Which intoxicates but does not terrify
In which all moments
Are lost
Except for
This One
Track Name: Count to 100 Backwards
Yes there are so many ghosts
Too many footsteps
Why can't I go back there?
I'm starting to feel small again
I want to sleep now

Count to 100 backwards

Yes there are so many dolls
of wood and leather
Waiting waiting
Til it's dark outside
I'm sure that I've seen them
Dancing on the windowsill

Count to 100 backwards

it's going to be so strange waking up here it may be raining
and they'll all be here
we'll be back like before before everything broke
there'll be cakes and kisses
at precisely 4:30

Count to 100 backwards
