DIA

[BC Solo]

One of the last songs written for the album. I figured out some new ways to write songs this time and by this point in the process I'd gotten comfortable with new approach. So I went back to my old process. To me, it's sort of an old school song written in a new way. "DIA" has got a nice Gothic vibe. Actually, Courtney Love was staying at my house at the time. She'd come into town for me to write songs for her record. I had this one and another one. I liked the other one, but Courtney picked this song. (BC, SheKnows.com interview Aug. 2005)

 

Lyrics

I receive
your signal, "down"
so you see
I found you out
shoot the lights we'll get out right
and follow this heart
shoot the lights we'll get out right
and follow this heart
something fades away
I never lost you
circle my mistakes
I never lost you for good
ain't I somethin'
I feel nothin'
I could never hide
am I bluffin'?
am I just denied?

mirror, mirror
reflect this scream
I've held my belief
beside these dreams

I can't guess where we'll be tomorrow
just one wish...
rumours of tomorrow
can I face tomorrow with you?

to the nines
you want it all
I perceive you'll sell me out
shoot the lights we'll get out right
and swallow this heart
shoot the lights we'll
get out right in time

mirror, mirror
reflect this scream
I've held my belief
beside these dreams

can I face tomorrow with you?
can I face tomorrow with you?
drag me to the hollows and choose...

the lanterns swing, the swans lie low
we stand alone...

aint' I somethin'
I feel nothin'
I can't help but try
am I bluffin'?
have I just denied?

mirror, mirror
I've lingered long
perchance to dream
the sweetest dream
mirror, mirror
reflect this scream
for dreams that long to be

can I face tomorrow with you?
can I face tomorrow with you?
drag me to the hollows
and choose alone
choose the loss
choose the sea
the longest walk
