Diner
Lyrics: Bobby Sheehan
Music: Bobby Sheehan

Seven a.m. welcomes in the next morning
Here again
Early to bed, when must I rise
If given no reason, I don't need to try
The seasons turn from gold to bare
So how come I still want to care

Somewhere she works in a diner
I'd like to go there and order a meal

But she's hard in my heart
Yeah you're hard in my heart
You're so hard in my heart
Do you know how I feel

There's a road that's long and scary
Where she lives her life of plenty
I'm driving home and I wish it was on the way
But the map I have leaves out that highway

Somewhere she works in a diner
I'd like to go there and order a meal

But she's hard in my heart
Yeah you're hard in my heart
You're so hard in my heart
Do you know how I feel

All in all I know she won't fall
Time will come once again
When our paths will meet, my friend
I will greet you with a smile
And see you've reached a place worthwhile

Somewhere she works in a diner
I'd like to go there and order a meal
But she's hard in my heart
Yeah you're hard in my heart
You're so hard in my heart
Yeah you're hard in my heart
You're so hard in my heart
Do you know how I feel

Early to bed, when must I rise
Reminiscent of the proverb "Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise". Coined by Benjamin Franklin in the 18th century, he popularized it by means of his Poor Richard's Almanac.
hard in my heart
Although the discovery of a 1997 song list finally confirmed this phrasing as the original title of the song, it's possible that there are several turns of phrase in the lyrics. Since they were never published, despite appearing on the Canadian Rose single, people have proposed "hard on my heart" and even "harden my heart" as alternate lines during the rest of the song, depending on the intended meaning.
