Lyrics

Diamonds, Dirt or Pearls

Written By: Brian J. Daskam

Calling Tulsa, information
Have you seen a, dark haired beauty
With a waist high tattoo of a blood red rose
Got on the day that her innocence died

Albuquerque, heard she was there
If you’ve seen her, leave a message
Dial 1-800-heartbreak hotel
That’s where I’ve been since her love went away

Yes you grew up to young
Having a child while you were still one
Some folks they were quite unkind
Their whispers and rumors you should pay no mind
I’ve always loved you, you know it’s true
I don’t care if you’re
Covered in diamonds, or dirt or in pearls

Babies so big, you should see her
She’s got your smile, and your dark eyes
If you could just hold her in your arms
You’d feel how loved and how needed you are

Moving or standing still
Your demons they still follow you
Leaving our past behind
Is no way to find peace of mind
I’ve always loved you, you know it’s true
I don’t care if you’re
Covered in diamonds, or dirt or in pearls

<1 verse length open for solo>

Moving or standing still
Your demons they still follow you
Leaving our past behind
Is no way to find peace of mind
I’ve always loved you, you know it’s true
I don’t care if you’re
Covered in diamonds, or dirt or in pearls

You Don't Love Me Anymore

Written By: Brian J. Daskam

Your soft footsteps down the hall
Tell me all I need to know
You’ve been out late on the town
Tell me did your lover show

I’ve watched the fire leave your eyes
That look it cuts me to the core
Was I the last to realize
You don’t love me anymore

You don’t love me anymore
Of this my broken heart is sure
I’ve finally seen through all your lies
Those dreamer’s dreams I had have died

You don’t love me anymore
The ticking clock it keeps the score
It counts each memory as they die
And you don’t love me anymore

That barroom matchbook that I found
It had a number down inside
I didn’t even need to call
To know it was the love you hide

My sorrow slowly turned to rage
I never felt like this before
I lost my mind and took your life
Cause you don’t love me anymore

You don’t love me anymore
Of this my broken heart is sure
I’ve finally seen through all your lies
Those dreamer’s dreams I had have died

I’m an Executioner’s love song
There is no doubt that I’ve done wrong
So I must pay now with my life
And I don’t love you anymore
