Diane Birch Tell Me Tomorrow

That look

Read about it in an old book

Never really thought that it would

Mean a thing to me

This heart

I can only take it so far

I can only drive this old car

As far as I can see

Didn’t I love you good enough

Oh didn’t I

Didn’t I make all the walls come down

Oh didn’t I

As long as I live

I’ll be wearing this one

Medal on my vest just

For loving someone

I already guessed

What you’re gonna tell me

So gimme your best

‘cos I’m wearing this one

Bullet in my chest

Just for loving someone

I already guessed what

You’re gonna tell me

But could you tell me tomorrow

Tell me tomorrow

Red line

Guess we really crossed it this time

I don’t even know what’s still mine

I don’t even want it anyways

Didn’t I love you good enough

Oh didn’t I

I guess I couldn’t make

All the walls come down

Why couldn’t I

As long as I live

I’ll be wearing this one

Medal on my vest just

For loving someone

I already guessed

What you’re gonna tell me

So gimme your best

‘cos I’m wearing this one

Bullet in my chest

Just for loving someone

I already guessed what

You’re gonna tell me

But could you tell me tomorrow

Tell me tomorrow

Diane Birch Don’t Wait Up

I said to the river running through my heart

You got a long way to go until the waters part

Come the clouds rollin’ in and all the people hide

They say run, run baby to the sunny side

I said to the preacher standing at my door

Why you chasin’ a rainbow when you got a star?

He said you’re gonna be sorry if you open that lid

I said it’s too late daddy I already did

Oh, oh, don’t wait up for me

Oh, ooh, ’cause you ain’t gonna like what you see

No, no, no

Don’t wait up for me, don’t wait up for me

I looked at the clock and it was quarter to twelve

I started counting the minutes to the freedom bell

I said the midnight hour is gonna take me home

And today’s sorrow will be here no more

I said

Oh, oh, don’t wait up for me

Oh, ooh, ’cause you ain’t gonna like what you see

No, no, no

Oh, no, oh, don’t wait up for me

Oh, ooh, ’cause you ain’t gonna like what you see

No, no, no

Oh, oh, don’t wait up for me

Oh, ooh, ’cause you ain’t gonna like what you see

No, no, no

Oh, oh, don’t wait up for me

Oh, ooh, ’cause you ain’t gonna like what you see

No, no, no

Don’t wait up for me

Oh no, don’t wait up for me

Don’t wait up for me

Oh, don’t wait up for me

Diane Birch Staring At You

Staring at you

Staring at me

It’s a slow dance

But I believe

Mona Lisa

Who do you see

It’s your one chance

Do you believe

Let’s get naked

Under the knife

We are dreamers

Larger than life

Staring at you

Staring at me

It’s a slow dance

But I believe

Lock up all the doors

Better seal your heart up tight

Block out all the noise

But you can’t escape the light

Staring at you

Staring at me

‘Cos your love creeps slow

Like a thief in the night

You take my breath

And you hold it inside

‘Cos your love creeps slow

Like a thief in the night

You take my breath

And you hold it inside

There’s an ocean

Inside of your head

With all the words

You wish you had said

We are broken

We have no pain

You’re the needle

I am the vein

Lock up all the doors

Better seal your heart up tight

Block out all the noise

But you can’t escape the light

Staring at you

Staring at me

‘Cos your love creeps slow

Like a thief in the night

You take my breath

And you hold it inside

‘Cos your love creeps slow

Like a thief in the night

You take my breath

And you hold it inside

Diane Birch Lighthouse

Some days I’m low

And I know I’m far from home

I see my name and a rose

On a white stone

Live a little woman

Your eyes ain’t meant to close

I’ve been walking the

Wasteland of my heart

You came and delivered me

You are a lighthouse

A lighthouse in the dark

You are a lighthouse

Callin’ out, callin’ out

And you hear me

SOS, SOS and you beam me

‘Cos you are a lighthouse

A lighthouse in the dark

Sometimes you fall

To your knees under attack

People they run

When they see the blood

On your back

Give a little honey your lies

Ain’t meant to rise

When I’m lost in the ocean

With no chance

You give me deliverance

You are a lighthouse

A lighthouse in the dark

You are a lighthouse

Callin’ out, callin’ out

And you hear me

SOS, SOS and you beam me

‘Cos you are a lighthouse

A lighthouse in the dark

Turn it back around

Silence is the sound

Of a heart on solid ground

Dancing with the dark

It only takes it a spark

To kill the black sky

Break it apart

Callin’ out, callin’ out

And you hear me

SOS, SOS and you beam me

‘Cos you are a lighthouse

A lighthouse in the dark

Diane Birch Nite Time Talking

Spreading out emotion like a feast

Sharpening the knives to meet the beast

I want all your worship, all your sins

No matter how you play nobody wins

Snow white sinner back to meet the light

Trash that letter I sent you last night

Spoken in the moment, honest prose

Thorns around the deepest color rose

Lady Rager bent on walkin’

That’s just the nite time talking

Why danger, why so shocking?

You know it’s just the nite time talking

You know it’s just the nite time time talking

Spreading out devotion like a feast

Can’t hold back desire for the beast

Go on save her heart from locking

Voices in her head aint stoppin’

It’s just the nite time talking

Diane Birch Magic View

Turning, turning are the tables here before me

Oh, but you’re so lovely

Lovely as you are, I know you’ll leave me

High up in a tree, I can’t climb down

But I don’t mind the trouble, it’s a magic view

Starin’ at the pavement under you

Burning, burning with the New York lights

I’m turning, turning into me it feels like heaven, heaven

Whoa the hum of silence never seemed so far

But Lord it’s quiet in my heart

And I don’t even miss a single blade of grass

Paper trails, no fingernails and frozen eyes I never wanna close

I would be a fool to miss this magic view

Starin’ at the ceiling next to you

Diane Birch Love And War

Tell me why you feel so cold

It ain’t supposed to feel so cold

Use me like a ring of smoke

Breathe me in and let me go

Yeah, let me go

Looking for a hand to hold

Make up for the love you sold

Pushin’ down the love below

Tryin’ not to lose control

Yeah, to lose control

I’m all alone now

Guess I was wrong somehow

Nobody knows until it’s over

You can’t stop the water

From pulling you under

Nobody knows until it’s over

Don’t you know

Hey now, hey now

You take it away

Love don’t live here anymore

Hey now, hey now

What can I say

Nothing’s fair in love and war

Knocking ‘till the walls cave in

Stop the knife from goin’ in

Race your devil to the edge

Find your freedom waiting there

Yeah, waiting there

I’m all alone now

Guess I was wrong somehow

Nobody knows until it’s over

You can’t stop the water

From pulling you under

Nobody knows until it’s over

Don’t you know, oh

Hey now, hey now

You take it away

Love don’t live here anymore

Hey now, hey now

What can I say

Nothing’s fair in love and war

When I held you

Tried to melt you

Made believe you

Wanted me too

Oh that you wanted me too

Hey now, hey now

You take it away

Love don’t live here anymore

Hey now, hey now

What can I say

Nothing’s fair in love and war

Diane Birch Forgiveness

Hallelujah, I got water, I got air

The chains that once held me, now aren’t there

‘Cause honey my heart has let you go, oh yes

Hallelujah, I got flowers in my hair

When I crossed the border there were angels waiting there

They took me down to the river of forgiveness and washed me clean

I picked the sorry’s up

I put the worries down

Your love, no it ain’t worth cursin’

Your heart, it ain’t worth hurtin’

Hallelujah, you’re a sinner, you’re a saint

You built me up to break, turned my lovin’ into hate

But honey when you left me in the darkness I saw the light

I picked the sorry’s up

I put the worries down

You’re love, no it just ain’t worth cursin’

You’re heart, you’re heart just ain’t worth hurtin’

Yes I picked the sorry’s up, yes I did

I put the worries down

You’re love, no it ain’t worth hurtin’

You’re heart, you’re heart just ain’t worth hurtin’

Diane Birch Nothing But A Miracle

Gettin’ tired of livin’, livin’ for a moment

Gettin’ tired of hanging on the line

I wake up every morning and I pull back the curtain

And wonder if it’s gonna rain or shine

Gettin’ tired of thinking, gettin’ so tired of begging

Gettin’ tired of forgetting that there’s two of us

I’m getting so tired of loving a man that just don’t give a damn

Just tell me, tell me baby why I’m holding on

When your lovin’s long gone?

I got a good mind so why don’t you tell me why

I can’t say goodbye

Just tell me baby why I’ve been holding on for so long?

And nothing but a miracle is gonna bring you back

Bring you back to me now

I gotta get myself together

Gotta stop telling myself that I can do no better

Gotta go out and maybe start meeting some new people

I gotta go out and buy myself one of those little black dresses

‘Cause I’m so tired of this T-shirt

I’m so tired of cryin’ off all my make up

Gettin just so tired of waking up with a lonely heart

I’m getting so tired of giving a damn about an absent hearted man

Just tell me, tell me baby why I’m holding on

When your lovin’s long gone?

I got a good mind so why don’t you tell me why

I can’t say goodbye

Just tell me baby why I’ve been holding on for so long?

And nothing but a miracle is gonna bring you back

Bring you back to me now

Oh, I can see it

Coming down the shadows

I can see it, it’s coming through

It’s coming through the windows

Oh, I can see it

I can see it coming down the ceiling

I can’t escape it, can’t escape it

No I can’t escape it

Tell me, yeah, why I’m holding on

When your love is long gone?

I got a good mind so why don’t you tell me why

I can’t say goodbye

Just tell me baby why I’ve been holding on for so long?

And nothing but a miracle is gonna to bring it back

Bring you back to me now

Oh, nothing but a miracle is gonna bring you back to me now

Oh, nothing but a miracle, oh no, no

Oh, nothing but a miracle is gonna bring you back to me now

Oh no
