The Diamond Church Street Choir As Heard On:

The Diamond Church Street Choir Lyrics

Now the lights go low on the avenue
And the cars pass by in the rain
University boys and the girls fill the bars
While I'm just waiting on the light to change

And the steam heat pours from the bodies on the floor
Down in the basement where the jackknives play
For the hub city girls in their ribbons and their curls
Who know the meaning of staying out late

They know the meaning of staying out very, very late

Singing who does it better than we do?
Them sopranos in Andy Diamond's choir
And whoa, nobody knows
I've been crazy for so long without you

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

They'll find me beat down out in the universe
Though I'll never forget where I'm from
I might have moved away from home and slept out there on my own
A million miles away in the storm

But the beat never leaves and the tempo's a relief
To my aching bones, rambling all over
And if I'm gone for too long I can always hum along
So don't you never forget what I told you

So don't you never forget what I told you

Everybody singing who does it better than we do?
Them sopranos in Andy Diamond's choir
And whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, nobody knows
I've been crazy for so long without you

And just, baby, who sings the rhythm and the blues
So sad, so slow, like I do, like I do?
And oh, ain't it just like you want to?
And oh, ain't it just like you always wanted to?

Every night waiting
So long without you

Baby, who sings it better than we do?
Them sopranos in Andy Diamond's choir
And whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, nobody knows
I've been crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy

And just, baby, who sings the rhythm and the blues
So sad, so slow, like I do
And just like you want to?

One Tree Hill Quotes

Peyton: Make a wish and place it in your heart. Anything you want. Everything you want.
Lucas: Do you have it? Good. Now believe it can come true. You never know where the next miracle is going to come from, the next smile. The next wish come true.
Peyton: But if you believe that it is right around the corner. And you open your heart and mind to the possibility of it. To the certainty of it.
Brooke: You just might get the thing you're wishing for.
Nathan: The world is full of magic. You just have to believe in it. So make your wish. Do you have it?
Haley: Good. Now believe in it. With all your heart.

Remember tonight, for it is the beginning of always. A promise, like a reward for persisting through life so long alone. A belief in each other and the possibility of love. A decision to ignore simply rise above the pain in the past. A covenant, which at once binds two souls and yet severs prior ties. The celebration of the chance taken and the challenge that lies ahead. For two will always be stronger than one. Like a team braced against the tempests of the world. And love will always be the guiding force in our lives. For tonight is mere formality. Only an announcement to the world of feelings long held, promises made long ago in the sacred space in our hearts.
