Lyrics
There's diamonds growing in the mountains
Beneath the pressure of all time
They grow in hope and expectation
Waiting for your hands to find
Cause only you could reach inside me
And figure out the worth,
Of a life I lived providing
What it was you needed most

And if everything is measured by the hole it leaves behind
Then this mountain has been leveled
And there's no more diamonds in the mine
Go on now just leave it
The timing wasn't right
And the force that swept us both away
Was too strong for us to fight

Fantasy man you are always one step ahead of me
Well I never heard the warning
Oh I haven't got things right
Yet the sun came out this morning
And filled my room with light

So go on now, you are forgiven
Let's put it down to life
The story of two lovers
Who danced both edges of the knife

In the station you're standing
Not knowing what you want
And the secrets we're defending
Have become our only bond

Just be patient while I wait here
Our journey is out of sync
While you're out there running in the chaos
I need some time to think

Fantasy man you are always one step ahead of me
Well I never heard the warnings
I haven't got things right
Yet the sun came out this morning
And filled my room with light

So go on now, you are forgiven
Let's put it down to life
The story of two lovers
Who danced both edges of the knife
