A MERE DIAMOND
A little girl, in a great big world
lived up the street, seemed so sweet
I knew she was out there
but never knew she could be mine.
She is the sun in my day, nothing gets in her way
her approach to life, is all about today
She’s taken us so far above
already given me – a lifetime of love.
(CHORUS) All this for a mere diamond.
For love she shares her love, she shares her life
she feeds her body to me, in the night
It’s the one thing that makes me thrill
and I burn - for her still.
I can’t take my eyes off her, I watch her read
does she know that when she looks at me, it’s off what I feed
If I land on unfamiliar ground
her smile tells me - I am found.
I’m slowing down, I’m losing hair
she must see it happening, but doesn’t seem to care
She gives me motion
With her devotion, yeah.
At times it doesn't seem real, but I believe what I can feel
If love has some grand scheme, then I an living in a dream.
(CHORUS repeat and fade)
