Diane Birch All The Love You Got

I sit and wonder where you’ve gone

Have you found a head to crown

That stays under when

You push it down

I sit and ponder what went wrong

Was I too emotional

Too many puzzles

For your simple soul

Does she let you sleep

When she’s awake

Does she close her eyes

Pay the asking price

Does she suffer with a smile

Take a penny for her soul that’s all

Heart of loneliness

Drinks the honey of your promises

Does she know that’s

All the love you got

That’s all the love you got

Does she know that’s

All the love you got

Tell me does it feel the same

Is she close enough to hurt

When she takes it does it

Make it worse

Can you still kill a perfect day

With a twinkle in your eye

Do you steal away

When she’s asleep

Does she close her eyes

Pay the asking price

Does she suffer with a smile

Take a penny for her soul that’s all

Heart of loneliness

Drinks the honey of your promises

Does she know that’s

All the love you got

That’s all the love you got

When she lets you lead the way

Does she wonder when

She’ll get there

If you’ll get there

Does she close her eyes

Pay the asking price

Does she suffer with a smile

Take a penny for her soul that’s all

Heart of loneliness

Drinks the honey of your promises

Does she know that’s

All the love you got

That’s all the love you got

Does she know that’s

All the love you got

That’s all the love you got

Does she know that’s

All the love you got

That’s all the love you got

Diane Birch Wind Up Bird Song

Part, part of an ocean wide

Part, part of your hope inside

Here comes life with a knife again

Shows no conscience, no mercy

Take my hand, reaching out for you

Don’t let go, whatever you do

When the nights are cold

And the days are just too long

When inside you hear

All the sirens going strong

I learn to feel the wind up bird song

I’ll stay with you until the nights come and go

Time bringing a better year

Will this world still be here by then

Rivers deep and it’s far too wide

To swim across all on your own

There’s an angel reaching out for you

Don’t give up, whatever you do

When the water’s cold

And the air is just too strong

When you lose your fight

And can’t find where you belong

I learn to feel the wind up bird song

I’ll stay with you until the nights come and go

Diane Birch Pretty In Pain

I don’t know how I got here

But I’m here

I don’t know what I’m here for

But this is clear

Some mountains have to be climbed

Some mountains have to be moved

How does the heart go wrong

When you give it all you got

Give it all you got

I know you’re already gone

But I’m trying

I’m tryin’ to hold on

I can make up a smile

Fool the crowd for a while

But the tears they’ve left a stain

I would stay if I could

Try to make it look good

But it’s hard to be pretty in pain

It’s a vicious circle

For only a few

Some of the wisest people

Don’t have a clue

Some bridges are

Meant to be crossed

Some bridges are meant

To be burned

How does the heart go wrong

When you give it all you got

Give it all you got

I know you’re already gone

But I’m trying

I’m tryin’ to hold on

I can make up a smile

Fool the crowd for a while

But the tears they’ve left a stain

I would stay if I could

Try to make it look good

But it’s hard to be pretty in pain

Lovin’ you baby is the cross I bear

You walk away and

Leave me hangin’ up there

I dress my tears in faithful grace

But you can see the heart

Breakin’ my face

I would stay if I could

Try to make it look good

But it’s hard it’s so hard

I can make up a smile

Fool the crowd for a while

But the tears they’ve left a stain

I would stay if I could

Try to make it look good

But it’s hard to be

Hard to be

So hard to be pretty in pain

Pretty in pain

Diane Birch Frozen Over

I don’t know what

Happened to my heart

‘cos I can’t feel the beat

No, I can’t feel the beat

I don’t know what

Happened to my heart

No, I can’t feel the heat

I’m frozen over

Lost in a dream

I don’t understand

Cruel as the gleam

On a lover’s blade

You say you’re trying

To be a better man

But the words on your lips

Fall straight to the grave

We had it all

The thrill of the night

We danced in the madness

Lived for the fight

But I don’t know what

Happened to my heart

‘cos I can’t feel the beat

No, I can’t feel the beat

I don’t know what

Happened to my heart

‘cos I can’t feel the heat

I’m frozen over

Lost in a truth that I can’t deny

Cold as a stone, no

I can’t even cry

Love is a flower

With wings of time

Ready to bloom

Ready to die

But we had it all

The thrill of the night

We danced in the madness

Lived for the fight

But I don’t know what

Happened to my heart

‘cos I can’t feel the beat

No, I can’t feel the beat

I don’t know what

Happened to my heart

‘cos I can’t feel the heat

I’m frozen over

The fire is over

Holding a memory

To feel the rhythm

I don’t know what

Happened to my heart

‘cos I can’t feel the beat

No, I can’t feel the beat

No, no

I don’t know what happened to

My heart

No, I can’t feel the heat

I’m frozen over

Diane Birch Speak A Little Louder

Looking through a dark light

Tear this page away

Another side of midnight

With nothing left to say

Living in the numbers

Hangin’ on the line

I haven’t seen you lately

Out of sight out of mind

When you’re wasting time

And nobody knows

What you’re saying

Speak a little louder

[repeat]

When you’re chasing lines

And your body goes and you’re fading

Speak a little louder

Just another Headache

Pushing on the pain

Just another mistake

Another link in the chain

When you’re wasting time

And nobody knows

What you’re saying

Speak a little louder

[repeat]

When you’re chasing lines

And your body goes and you’re fading

Speak a little louder

Diane Birch This Corrosion

Gimme the ring, kissed and toll’d

Gimme something that I missed

A hand to hold, wild and what it seems

Kill the king, when love is the law,

And the we’ll turn round…

Gimme dream child

And do you hear me call?

On the loan and on the level

…still on the floor

Sing dream child

And do you hear at all?

Hey now, hey now now, sing this corrosion to me

Hey now, hey now now, sing this corrosion to me

Hey now, hey now now, sing this corrosion to me

Hey now, hey now now, sing…

Gimme siren, child and do you hear me?

Gimme siren, child, and do you hear me call?

Sing, child, of right and wrong

Gimme things that don’t last long

Gimme siren, child, and do you hear me call?

Hey now, hey now now, sing this corrosion to me

Hey now, hey now now, sing this corrosion to me

Hey now, hey now now, sing this corrosion to me

Hey now, hey now now, sing…

On daze, like this

In times like these

I feel an animal deep inside

Heel to haunch on bended knees

Living on if and if I tried,

Somebody send me… please…

Dream wars and a ticket to seem

Giving out and in

Selling the don’t belong

Well, what do you say

D’you have a word for giving away?

Got a song for me?

Hey now, hey now now, sing this corrosion to me

Hey now, hey now now, sing this corrosion to me

Hey now, hey now now, sing this corrosion to me

Hey now, hey now now, sing…

I got nothing to say I ain’t said before

I bled all I can, I won’t bleed no more

I don’t need no one to understand

Why the blood run hold

The hired hand

On heart

Hand of god

Floodland and driven apart

Run cold

Turn

Cold

Burn

Like a healing hand

Like a healing hand

Like a healing hand

Like a healing hand

Diane Birch Truer Than Blue

Tell me do you feel the glow

Of your own reflection

Chasing shadows, moving slow

Is that your intention

Did you know that hand you hold

Is only an illusion

Spin your sorrow into gold

There you’ll find protection

Oh my blue

I’ve been missing you

Sometimes our wishes

No they don’t come true

But oh missing you is truer than blue

Forty days and forty nights

Tryin’ to sew these wounds up tight

I hold my breath and close my eyes

And wait until this raging river dries

Oh my blue

I’ve been missing you

Sometimes our wishes

No they don’t come true

But oh missing you

Is truer than blue

It’s truer than blue

Diane Birch Unfkd

Tongue tied and twisted

It always comes out wrong

Comes out wrong

There’s a time bomb ticking

You’ve only got so long

Got so long

Who’s gonna hear your prayers

If you don’t, if you won’t

Who’s gonna sing your song

If you don’t, if you won’t

Don’t stop walkin’

Baby please stop talkin’

When you hear the guns fire

Don’t listen

When you see the sky turn black

Keeping holding

The hole in your chest where your

Heart used to be

‘Cos tomorrow will come and

It might be a little more unfucked

Just a little more unfucked

Dark angels calling

Oh so sweet and low

Sweet and low

Like a fast car coming

It’s gone before you know

Before you know

Who’s gonna say your prayers

If you don’t, if you won’t

Who’s gonna stitch up you

If I don’t, if I won’t

Don’t stop walkin’

Baby please stop talkin’

When you hear the guns fire

Don’t listen

When you see the sky turn black

Keeping holding

The hole in your chest where your

Heart used to be

‘Cos tomorrow will come and

It might be a little more unfucked

Just a little more unfucked

Diane Birch Kings Of Queens

Man on first / boys in blue & orange burst

Winning now / chances are they’ll lose somehow

Get your fix / like you did in ’86

The bad guys won / party kids have all the fun

Kings of Queens / with no means to rule

There will always be a crowd to fool

Kings of Queens / with no means to rule the world

To rule the world

Man on third / loudest sound you ever heard

C’mon Amazin’s / give us the feelin’ we still believe in

Miracles / triple crowns and walk-off chills

Stealing home / in-between you’re all alone

Kings of Queens / with no means to rule

There will always be a crowd to fool

Kings of Queens / with no means to rule the world

To rule the world

C’mon Amazin’s / give us the feelin’

C’mon Amazin’s / give us the feelin’

We still believe in

Kings of Queens / with no means to rule

There will always be a crowd to fool

Kings of Queens / with no means to rule the world

To rule the world

Diane Birch Walk The Rainbow To The End

Hold tight to the hopes of a restless fool

Lady luck will be back for you

Don’t loosen the ropes of a tie that binds

All we have are the things we do

Lost in the middle

Just you and me

It’s hard to see

End from beginning

And up from down

It’s a wild and wonderful dream

Come out swingin’ my friend

Walk a straight line

Through the bend

Keep on climbin’ that hill

Happiness is a sugar pill

Holy is the stone that brings you down

And spins your world around

Keep on swingin’ my friend

Walk the rainbow to the end

To the end

Walk the rainbow to the end

To the end

Hang tight it’s 11:11

It ain’t the time yet for sleepin’ child

Don’t reach for the fruit of an easy out

What is livin’ if it don’t get wild

Wait yes I remember you

It’s funny how the time goes by

You look a little pale in your grown up style

We never should’ve said goodbye

We never should’ve said goodbye

Come back swingin’ my friend

Walk a straight line

Through the bend

Keep on climbin’ that hill

Happiness is a sugar pill

Holy is the stone that brings you down

And spins your world around

Keep on swingin’ my friend

Walk the rainbow to the end

To the end

Walk the rainbow to the end

To the end

Walk the rainbow to the end

To the end

I see your ghost in the broken window

I see your ghost in the TV screen

I see your ghost at the edge of the bridge

I see your ghost in a midnight dream

See your ghost in the dusty arrow

See your ghost in the pale moonbeam

See your ghost in the roll of a dice

I see your ghost in the in-between
