Black Ties & Diamonds

lyrics

Through the hall I was hustling
Passed a double door
it was more than familiar,
I had been there once before
No time to consider
as I took the stage
I held on to the image
like a bookmark on a blank page

Black ties and diamonds
Black ties and diamonds
Black ties and diamonds
All that I know

When the night had retired
Silent like a ledge
And my memory a jumper
Pulling me slowly off the edge
In my youth I cut roses
Pressed and tucked away
In a book I’m still meaning
To read one of these days

Black ties and diamonds
Black ties and diamonds
Black ties and diamonds
All that I know
Black ties and diamonds
Black ties and diamonds
Black ties and diamonds
Not a one do I own

This is it, don’t get scared now
Cut it on my stone:
“As hard as he tried,
This man lies here alone.”

Black ties and diamonds
Black ties and diamonds
Black ties and diamonds
All that I know
Black ties and diamonds
Black ties and diamonds
Black ties and diamonds
Not a one do I own
All that I know
Not a one do I own
All that I know
Not a one do I own
All that I know
Not a one do I own
All that I know
Not a one do I own
All that I know
