about

Dawnya Clarine Sandpoint

Clarine’s songs are beautifully crafted, her production tastefully understated, and her singing so heartbreakingly pure as to suggest she knows your secrets and your soul.

Elements of jazz, blues, soul and reggae are woven together under Dawnya’s smooth, sultry voice.

Think Jason Mraz meets Norah Jones with a Ruthie Foster kick.

Track Name: Breathe In Love
Breathe In Love ©2007 Dawnya Clarine & Tim Martin


Let go of things that haunt you
Let the past stay behind
Let go of any anger or pain you might know
Live today, and let it go

CHORUS: Breathe in love, breathe out love
Be here right now, now, now
All we have is right now, now, now
Live right now, now, now … right now

Tomorrow is a day away
Always out of reach
Can’t control what happens … rain, shine or snow
Live today, and let it go

CHORUS: Breathe in love, breathe out love
Be here right now, now, now
All we have is right now, now, now
Live right now, now, now … right now

BRIDGE: If we have to hang onto something
Look to peace, hope and love
Want to talk about something
Let’s share the good, the laughter, the fun

The past is done, can’t get it back
Future is still to be written
Release control, go with the flow
Yes live in the moment, and let the rest go

CHORUS: Breathe in love, breathe out love
Be here right now, now, now
All we have is right now, now, now
Live right now, now, now … right now
Track Name: Tell Me
Tell Me ©2007 Tim Martin and Dawnya Clarine

Tell me what’s good in your life
Tell me of your dreams
Tell me where you find happiness
Tell me

Tell me what you’re thinking
Tell me what you feel
Tell me anything you want
Please tell me

CH: My eyes are open, my ears are open
Heart’s wide open, to take you in
I want to know you, know all about you
So trust me
Tell me
Tell me

Inst. Break

Tell me what tears you apart
Tell me what feels safe
Tell me everything, my love
Tell me

Tell me what you’re thinking
Tell me what you feel
Tell me anything you want
Please tell me

CH: My eyes are open, my ears are open
Heart’s wide open, to take you in
I want to know you, know all about you
So trust me
Tell me
Tell me
Track Name: Why Am I
Why Am I ©2006 Tim Martin and Dawnya Clarine

Inside I must have cried, no tears were ever shed
Wasn’t really living, gray thoughts in my head

Nothing, no one, mattered to me
Why go on, I just couldn’t see

CHORUS:
Forgotten how to laugh, forgotten how to cry
Floating along empty, watching life drift on by
Asking why, why…why am I?

You offered your hand, I was afraid
Thought about running, but your strength made me stay

You saw through to the one who is me
Showed me life is more than I remembered it could be

CHORUS:
Forgotten how to laugh, forgotten how to cry
Floating along empty, watching life drift on by
Asking why, why…why am I?

Bridge:
Now my laughter and tears often mingle in a day
Stepped out of the shadows, baby you led the way

You helped me find passion, helped me risk pain
Now I’m feeling, I’m loving, I’m living again

FINAL CHORUS:

I’d forgotten how to laugh, forgotten how to cry
I’ve come back to life babe, I’m floating high
Not asking why… why, why am I

I’d forgotten how to laugh, forgotten how to cry
You helped bring me back, now I know why
Yeah I know why, why, why am I
Yeah I know why… I know why …
Track Name: Walking On Water
Walking on Water

Woke up this morning, went for a walk
Surprised myself when I walked off the dock
But even more surprised, I didn’t sink
Not sure what happened, not sure what to think

CHORUS:
And now I’m walking on water, telling the truth
I’m walking on water, turned my troubles loose yeah
I’m walking on water, its sinking in
I’m walking on water, I don’t have to swim

Been in a rut, tried nothing new
I was stuck in my ways, blind to all I could do
That’s who I saw so I stepped off the dock
Now I see I can do more than I thought

CHORUS:
And now I’m walking on water, I’m telling the truth
I’m walking on water, turned all my troubles loose
I’m walking on water, its sinking in
I’m walking on water, I don’t have to swim

BRIDGE:
The current can’t take me where I don’t want to go
Going my way, not with the flow
Maybe after a day goes by
I’ll run off the roof and learn how to fly …

CHORUS:
But now I’m walking on water, I’m telling the truth
I’m walking on water, turned all my troubles loose
I’m walking on water, its sinking in
I’m walking on water, I don’t have to swim

Track Name: He's Free
He’s Free ©2007 Dawnya Clarine & Tim Martin

Whichever way the wind will blow
Seems that’s where he will go
Drifting on his secret sea

Can’t stay in one place to long
Or choose a favorite song
Say who he is or who he wants to be

CHORUS: I’m not complaining, he’s free
Guess I’m complaining, he’s free

No house, no car, no rings
He lives a life of simpler things
Doesn’t seem to take more than he needs

Say’s he’ll never be tied down
But when I need him he’s around
Wonder which one matters more to me

CHORUS: I’m not complaining, he’s free
Guess I’m complaining, he’s free

He’s right, I guess I’ve gotten numb
No play, no having fun
Wish I could be so much more like he is

Yeah, his soul is kind and he laughs a lot
Lives each day like it’s all he’s got
Not afraid to be just who he is

CHORUS: I’m not complaining, he’s free
Guess I’m complaining, he’s free

Guess I’m complaining he’s free
Yeah I’m complaining ‘cause it’s not me

Guess I’m complaining, he’s free
Yeah I’m complaining, wish it was me … wish
it was me… wish it was me
Track Name: Is There Time
Is There Time ©2006 Tim Martin and Dawnya Clarine


Little girl, arms stretched wide
Twirling, dancing, laughing

Little boy, dog at his side
Running, jumping, sharing
A smile


Woman ready for her day
Everything in order, yes
Everything in place

Man tied up, man uptight
Cell phone ringing, another meeting
… No time


CHORUS:
Look forward, look back
Look at yourself, who do you see?
Do you laugh, do you sing
Is there time to walk the dog today?


See their daughter, arms out free
Twirling, dancing, laughing

See their son, with his dog carefree
Running, jumping, beaming
At the moon


CHORUS:
Look forward, look back
Look at yourself, who do you see?
Do you laugh, do you sing
Is there time to walk the dog today?


See yourself, arms out wide
HMMM, Hmmm, hmmm

See yourself dog at your side
Hmmm hmmm hmmm

Is there time to walk the dog?
Is there time, Is there time, is there time
Track Name: Man On The Corner
Man on the Corner

Man on the corner
Ancient guitar
Playing and singing for those passing by

Played with a passion
Pried from his soul
Always a look of peace in his eyes

He sang
Ba, da,n, da, da lend a helping hand
Ba, da,n, da, da la lemme see you smile
Ba, da,n, da, da, la, la listen
Ba, da, da, da, n, da, da, da, da, da

Week after week
Month after month
There on his corner, rain or shine

I felt comfort in his music
Heard the wisdom in his words
And saw the look of peace in his eyes

He sang
Ba, da,n, da, da love the little children
Da da la love what you’re doing
Ba, da,n, da, da la, la listen
Ba, da, da, da, n, da, da, da, da, da

Coins in his case
Fortunes came and went
Stranger touched as we passed by

Small price to pay
For his insights every day
And to share the look of peace in his eyes

He sang
La, da, dad a, da do unto others
Ba, da, as you would have them do
La la n la la, love them like a brother
Ba, da, da, da, n, da, da, da, da, da


Never knew his name
But I felt empty inside
The day his corner went quiet

Had few possessions
But he had it all
I knew he knew the secret by the peace in his eyes

I’ll always hear his
La, da, da, da da little words of wisdom, yes I will
Da, da, do, da, da his lines of love
Na, da, da, da, da, da singing on the corner
Da, da, da he was sharing through his songs
Ba, da, da he was teaching through his songs
La, da, da, he was loving through his songs

There was a man
On the corner
With a guitar, and a song, and peace in his eyes

Track Name: Stop Tryin' So Hard
Stop Tryin’ So Hard

I wanna run like a rabbit
Wanna sleep like a cat
I wanna bray like a mule
Wanna fly like a bat

Wanna think like a flower and that means not much at all
Just let it happen and then I’ll have it all


CHORUS:
Stop tryin’ so hard
Stop tryin’ so hard
Stop tryin’ so hard
It’ll come to me


I wanna swing like a monkey
Wanna smile like a dog
I wanna swim like an otter
Wanna eat like a hog

I wanna worry like a weed and that means not much at all
Just let it happen and then I’ll have it all

CHORUS:2x
Stop tryin’so hard
Stop tryin’so hard
Stop tryin’so hard
It’ll come to me


I wanna roar like a lion
Wanna yawn like a horse
I wanna float like a hippo
Wanna last like a tortoise

I wanna cry like an oak and that means not much at all
Just let it happen and then I’ll have it all

CHORUS:4x
Stop tryin’so hard
Stop tryin’so hard
Stop tryin’so hard
It’ll come to me
It’ll come to me, I’ll have it all, it’ll come to me, I’ll have it all

Track Name: Opposites Attract
Opposites Attract

Cool and Blue, thru and thru, baby that’s your plan
Red and hot, all the things you’re not, make me who I am

You take it easy all the way, never take a chance
I jump off the flying jet and ask the clouds to dance

CHORUS:
Can’t explain it
Together we’re more and that’s a fact
Like Yang and Yin, like saint and sin
Our opposites attract

Step in time don’t break the line, that’s what you’re living for
I gotta jump and jive, to stay alive, the rest is just a bore

You’re wrapped up in the basic stuff, every day’s the same
I need to have some highs and lows to keep me on my game

CHORUS:
Can’t explain it
Together we’re more and that’s a fact
Like Yang and Yin, like lose and win
We're opposites and we attract
Opposites and we attract
Our opposites attract

Time to unwind, come down from my high, ready to take it slow
Then you're on fire, colors gone wild, changing stop to go

Yeah, our roles flip flop, you’re still who I’m not, and I’m not at all like you
We may change, one thing stays the same, your push pulls me close to you

CHORUS:
Can’t explain it
Together we’re more and that’s a fact
Like Yang and Yin, like out and in
We're opposites and we attract
Opposites and we attract
Our opposites attract

Track Name: Could It Be More
Could It Be More

Is it love, or just good talk
Are you in it, will you walk the walk

Is it love or just the look in your eyes
Something you planned, or baby one big surprise

CHORUS: Is it love or a revolving door
Is it love, how can you ever be sure
Is love, what you’re looking for
Is it love or, could it be more

Is it love, or just a kiss
When we’re apart, what do you miss

Is it love, or just a roll in the hay
Is it just the heat, baby what do you say

CHORUS: Is it love or a revolving door
Is it love, how can you ever be sure
Is love, what you’re looking for
Is it love or, could it be more

BR: Is it love or could it be more
Is it love or could it be more
Is it love or could it be more
I like to think that maybe it’s more

Is it love or are we just friends
Will the pain come if it should end

Is it love, does it have a name
Maybe baby, something we can’t explain

CHORUS: Is it love or a revolving door
Is it love, how can you ever be sure
Is love, what you’re looking for
Is it love or, could it be more

Yeah, could it be more
I like to think that maybe it’s more

Track Name: Little Girl Blue
Little Girl Blue

A father’s warm smile, a mother’s tender touch
Things she never knew
A parent’s love just fantasy and dreams, no love for Little Girl Blue

A young love that meant everything to her
Stolen passion for him, then he flew
So love’s not love, it’s just loneliness and shame, no love for Little Girl Blue

CHORUS:
Little Girl Blue, she’s not little any more
But she’s blue, through and through, just the same
She keeps to herself, where no one can reach her, afraid of any more pain


She hears your sweet words, wants to believe
Longs for a love that’s true
Yet she steels herself and walks away, no love for Little Girl Blue

No love for Little Girl Blue, no love for Little Girl Blue, no love, no love for Little Girl Blue

Don’t give up on Little Girl Blue, please believe in Little Girl Blue
Don’t give up on Little Girl Blue, please believe in Little Girl Blue

‘cause love can win and maybe in time, she’ll leave behind, Little Girl Blue
‘Yes love can win and maybe in time, she’ll leave behind, Little Girl Blue
Love can win, love can win, love can win

Track Name: He's A Cat
He’s A Cat


He comes by every day or so
Big ol cat, comes to my door
He knows who he’s supposed to be
He’s a cat, I’m just me

Not a worry between his ears
Lives his life without no fears
Wish I could be like him
And follow my every whim


CHORUS:
No conflict of interest
Sure of his existence
‘Cause he’s a cat and I’m just me

He’s a cat, he’s a cat, he’s a cat, he’s a cat and I’m just me
He’s a cat, he’s a cat, he’s a cat and I’m just me


Does what he wants, eat, sleep, play
Makes sure I don’t get in his way
Sometimes he gets it in his head
To help himself to my bed

CHORUS:
No conflict of interest
Sure of his existence
‘Cause he’s a cat and I’m just me

He’s a cat, he’s a cat, he’s a cat, he’s a cat and I’m just me
He’s a cat, he’s a cat, he’s a cat and I’m just me

BRIDGE:
When he’s purring in my lap
I think just maybe he’s my cat
Then he yowls and growls and sinks in his claws
Demands some food, he’s all sorts of rude
HE thinks that’s the way it will always be
He’s the cat, and I’m just me
But I’ve been thinking
And I got a plan


When I die… I’m gonna come back
It’ll be as a sassy ol cat
I won’t worry, I won’t fret
I’ll find my guy and be his pet

CHORUS:
No conflict of interest
Sure of my existence
Yeah, I’ll be the cat and he’ll be me

He’s a cat, he’s a cat, he’s a cat, he’s a cat and I’m just me
He’s a cat, he’s a cat, he’s a cat and I’m just me

He’s a big old mean old bad old cat, I’m just me
But I’ll show him something when I come back, and he’ll be me

He’s a cat, he’s a cat, he’s a cat and I’m just me
He’s a cat, and I’m just me

Track Name: Beautiful Eyes
Beautiful Eyes

The look you give … plays tricks on my heart
Plucks my strings and pulls me apart
Never knew the windows to your soul
Would take my life and make me whole


CHORUS:
Beautiful eyes, see to the heart of me
Beautiful eyes see to the soul of me
Beautiful eyes, find only the good in me
Your beautiful eyes, see me

Your gaze cuts through my fog like a light
Seeing the spectrum not just my black and white
Don’t know what you saw, but you didn’t blink
Those beautiful eyes, took me in, in a wink


CHORUS:
Beautiful eyes, see to the heart of me
Beautiful eyes see to the soul of me
Beautiful eyes, find only the good in me
Your beautiful eyes, see me


Glance back and you’ll see on my face
The look of love you’ll never replace
Your eyes took me in, looked straight into my heart
Now I’m looking ahead hoping we’ll never part

CHORUS:
Beautiful eyes, see to the heart of me
Beautiful eyes see to the soul of me
Beautiful eyes, find only the good in me
Your beautiful eyes see me, free me, to be me
