Known Diamond - Live

from Paradiso in the Moonlight by Ken Stringfellow

/

lyrics

Hearing the phone ring
Another angel lost its wings
Better to save it
For when you really need something
“Is heaven abandoned?”
The words that you could never write
They called me to send me
Wondering where you are tonight

Like a known diamond, they say you got the light, girl
So take the right to find the fire that fits
Your faded heart
The shadow of diamonds, it kept you from my sight, girl
Don't walk away, just say you'll stay engaged in who you are

What you rejected when the harbor lights went out
When all is uncertain, you can soothe yourself with doubt
You look to the mirror and ask if they make fables there
You know that you're moving fast when your surface is bare

Like a known diamond, they say you got the light, girl
So take the right to find the fire that fits
Your faded heart
The rumor of diamonds can set the dogs to fight, girl
So hear these words of mine that say your shine is genuine

Locked away, to keep the thieves from finding out

Remember the sunlight when out in the world you'd walk?
You'd drift like a smoke ring in the shadows of New York
Then you see her picture, and wonder if you ever left
You can
Throw dirt on a memory, but you could never say it's dead
You can
Throw dirt on a memory, but you could never say it's dead

Like a known diamond, they say you got the light, girl
So take the right to find the fire that fits your faded heart
The illusion of diamonds, it kept you from my sight, girl
Don't walk away, just say you'll stay engaged in who you are
