her diamonds

“Oh what the hell” she says
“I just can’t win for losing”
And she lays back down
Man there’s so many times
I don’t know what I’m doin’
Like I don’t know now

By the light of the moon
She rubs her eyes
Says “it’s funny how the night
Can make you blind”
I can just imagine
And I don’t know what I’m supposed to do
But if she feels bad, then I do too
So I let her be

And she says, “oh,
I can’t take no more”
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
‘Cause I can’t help her now
She’s down in it
She tried her best and now she can’t win
It’s hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling down
Way down

Well she sits down and stares into the distance
And it takes all night
And I know I could break her concentration
But it don’t feel right

By the light of the moon
She rubs her eyes
Sits down on the bed and starts to cry
And there’s something less about her
And I don’t know what I’m supposed to do
So I sit down and I cry too
But don’t let her see

And she says, “oh,
I can’t take no more”
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
‘Cause I can’t help her now
She’s down in it
She tried her best and now she can’t win
It’s hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling down

She shuts out the night
Tries to close her eyes
If she can find daylight
Then she’ll be alright
She’ll be alright
Just not tonight

And she says, “oh,
I can’t take no more”
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
‘Cause I can’t help her now
She’s down in it
She tried her best and now she can’t win
It’s hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling

“Oh, I can’t take no more”
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
‘Cause I can’t help her now
She’s down in it
She tried her best and now she can’t win
It’s hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling down

(I can’t take no more)
(Diamonds on the floor)
(No more) no more
(No more)
Diamonds falling down
(I can’t take no more)
(Diamonds on the floor)
(No more, no more, no more, no more)
Diamonds falling down, yeah
(I can’t take no more)
(Diamonds on the floor)
(No, no, no, no)
Oh diamonds fall, and oh her diamonds
Diamonds falling down
I can’t take these diamonds falling down

Well if we had the words in times like these
We wouldn’t have to stare
We’d both know what to say
And how to pray the things to do to save the day
Some will call it sacrifice
They’ll look at this and never see
The beauty or how much it means
The blood that runs inside of me
I know you understand
That there’s no map for this, no plan

And the way we say goodbye
Is not the way that anyone would do
Like a wave out on the ocean
I will always come right back to you
I could blink, not a moment is gone
We’ll pick up where we left off

It’s like the world is draped in a camouflage
And sometimes never what it seems
Everyone’s got different things
They hide behind or try to be
But the things I carry with me
All remind me who I am
When so much of me is not with me
What matters most is what I leave
Behind for you to keep
Yeah, so smile when you think of me

And though the way we say goodbye
Is not the way that anyone would do
Like a wave out on the ocean
I will always come right back to you
I could blink, and not a moment is gone
Yeah we’ll pick up where we left off

Oh the way we say goodbye
Is not the way the anyone would do
Like a wave out on the ocean
I will always come right back to you
Nothing changed, nothing fades, nothing lost
And we pick up where we left off

i wish i was

On paper we go together
I know that we look the part
But almost never hangs on forever
I know I’m breaking your heart

So go on, say what you want to
I’m not gonna stop you
You can blame it all on me

I’m not the hero in the story
I’m not the girl that gets the glory
‘Cause you’re looking for true love
And I’m not the one
But I wish, but I wish I was
Hmm, I wish, oh I wish I was
Hmmmmm

Wish I could feel about you
The way you feel about me
But you can’t make a heart say something
That it don’t believe

So go on, hate me if you have to
I hate myself too
‘Cause as much as I want to be

I’m not the hero in the story
I’m not the girl that gets the glory
‘Cause you’re looking for true love
And I’m not the one
But I wish, but I wish I was
Hmm, I wish, oh I wish I was

Go on, hate me if you have to
I still care about you
Hmm, as much as I want to be

I’m not the hero in the story
I’m not the girl that gets the glory
‘Cause you’re looking for true love
And I’m not the one
But I wish, but I wish I was

Oh, ’cause you’re looking for true love
And I’m not the one
But I wish, but I wish I was
Hmm, I wish, oh I wish I was
Hoo, mmm
Oh oh oh
