"Don't Wait Up" as written by and Diane Birch....
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
