lyrics

5) Diamond Days

The silver owl flew through the night
And rested on the lady’s arm
It became a tattoo that she never knew
Kept her away from harm.

The lady spun in the air
She sparkled in her ballet clothes
She twisted her wrist, flew like a fish
But she managed to land on her toes.

If only you got to see the way
Before the keenest diamond days

When the darkness wants to roam for a while
It climbs up to the shore
Then soon the moon will come on strong
And the darkness will be no more.

Her world runs like a clock
Gears turning in her brain
She isn’t blind, but is always on time
And she stays pretty sane.

If only you got to see the way
Before the keenest diamond days.

She’s placed in a tall glass bottle
Bending on her knees and toes
She tries to dance but there is no chance
She becomes a shadow.

But she’ll revel in the morning light
Cut a shrewd deal with her muse,
Feel our desire. Sink our teeth in the wire
And send a bright spark through the fuse.

If only you got to see the way
Before the keenest diamond days.
