diamonds

Don’t you tell me that you don’t know

How it burns to cry alone

When the sunset fades and all you’ve got

Are the tearstained sheets and your racing thoughts

 

There’s always strings left untied

There’s always one more last goodbye

And this world will break you if you don’t

Allow your knees to hit the floor

 

‘Cause stars ain’t diamonds, rain ain’t tears

And love don’t last a thousand years

We build our walls, we lock our gates

But we’ll all be in the dirt someday

 

And I knew this dancer dressed all in black

Dug her nails into my back

But she pulled away by and by

It’s times like these I remember why

 

‘Cause stars ain’t diamonds, rain ain’t tears

And love don’t last a thousand years

We build our walls, we lock our gates

But we’ll all be in the dirt someday

 

Stars ain’t diamonds, rain ain’t tears

And love don’t last a thousand years

We build our walls, we lock our gates

But we’ll all be in the dirt someday
