about

(Snyder/Savarino)

lyrics

I would wear your diamond
So tightly around my neck
I would wear your diamond
For your picture is already there
We could build a family
Nice and slow
The compression of the ages
Turn dirt stone into precious

I would wear your diamond
Anytime anywhere
See it sparkle see it shine
See it cast light on your hair

And in the event of occurrences
Like broken hearts and promises
I won’t complain now baby
‘Cause what we had is what we had

You suck me into your whirlpool
A spiral of fascinating love
Your world and your planet
Ah let me be your sun
To warm your heart forever
Bar nothing bar no one

The sun is burning my ears
Thinking and talking with golden rays
Warm arms that embrace me
I say stay swirl stay

I would wear your diamond
So tightly around my neck
I would wear your diamond
For your picture is already there
We could build a family
Nice and slow
The compression of the ages
Turn dirt stone into precious
