Diamonds

Lyrics

Diamonds are a ritual
a prize in the cracker jack
a name that you won’t get back.
Diamonds are a runaround
a game you can’t win
while you wait for your life to begin.
Missed the party
drank the punch
the drunk ones are a lucky bunch.
Diamonds play singles
so sharp and abrasive
just look at their poor faces
it’s sad.
It’s not in the cards for them
look down at their hands
you’ll see nothing
just emptiness and misery.
Missed the party
drank the punch
the drunk ones are a lucky bunch.
Drink til they can’t tell what’s wrong.
Drink til they can’t tell what’s wrong.
Diamonds are a piece of twine
the seal on the envelope
some guarantee of hope.
Diamonds are just rocks that shine
so I’m not the diamond kind.
I’ll never see a diamond mine.
Missed the party
drank the punch
the drunk ones are a lucky bunch.
Cause they can’t remember when they’ve had such a bad time.
Cause they can’t remember when they’ve had such a bad time.
No, they can’t remember when they’ve had such a bad time.
Set, they make diamond rings.
Diamonds are the hardest things.
