lyrics

There was a flicker of a candle
there was a suitcase and a knife
there was that camera that I bought you
on that damp, stale, starless night
and you were standing with that sullen look on your eyes
that I’ve seen too many times before
and you waved at me almost motionlessly as your white dress dragged across the floor

and you were just a shiny diamond
bought on the black market of hope
and I will never leave your island
and you’ll never grow old

You whispered something unintelligible
then you turned and went up the stairs
and you furrowed your face
like you heard something strange
and I knew right then that I’d never dare
it’d take a man braver than me
to tread casually in the blindness of my youth
but you pushed all my buttons
like Sam to Delilah
and I knew I couldn’t fight this truth

‘cause you were just a shiny diamond
bought on the black market of hope
and I will never leave your island
and you’ll never grow old

and if you were standing here before me
you would be no less of a ghost
and you’d linger in the air forever
like an old burnt up piece of toast

and you were just a shiny diamond
bought on the black market of hope
and I will never leave your island
and you’ll never grow old

and you were just a shiny diamond
bought on the black market of hope
and I will never leave your island
and you’ll never grow old
and you’ll never grow old
and you’ll never grow
