Blood Diamonds [live] (4:36)

APPEARS ON: Live Wire (2020)

Is one only true
In their solitude?
Like blood diamonds
Hell that we go through
And if we just move
Like true lovers do
Are we islands?
Lost in green and blue

Wear black of the mourning
Just like a hug
Then you breathe and you laugh and you lie
Til it becomes a drug
One kick of the needle
And the deal is done
Then you breathe and you laugh and you lie
And then count up from one

If I only knew
How cardinals flew
Soul and fire
Meaning bursting through
Once I flew that way
So differently today
Test and trial
Bandages and glue

Wear black of the mourning
Just like a hug
And you breathe and you laugh and you lie
Til it becomes a drug
One kick of the needle
And the deal is done
Then you breathe and you laugh and you lie
And then count back from one

Busted in the waters
Of a dream that took too long
Attracted by the things we tend to lose
Thrown off by a lager
And the lollipop girl song
Distracted by the things we cannot choose

Wear white of the morning
Just like the sun
Then you breathe and you laugh and you love
Til it becomes a drug
Rearview teasing mirror
Has lost its tug
Then you breathe and you laugh and you love
And then count up from one
