Song Lyric Sunday: Diamonds on the Water

This week, Song Lyric Sunday host Helen has shown true dedication above and beyond the call of duty, by posting the Sunday challenge even on the weekend she got married for goodness sake!  Congratulations you guys – I hope you had a wonderful day and wish you many happy years together!

So picking up on the matrimonial theme, this week’s prompt was a song with precious metal or jewels in the title. I’m going to be a bit unoriginal here, posting another Oysterband song after last week, but y’all seemed to like it, and this one really is good:

Diamonds on the Water

John Jones / Ian Telfer
Pukka Music 2014

First released on: Diamonds On The Water, 2014

when you’re running on empty
and the road has no end
when you’re caught at the border
and no man is your friend
when you reach out for comfort
and there’s nothing but despair
there’ll be diamonds on the water
and music in the air
there’ll be diamonds on the water
music in the air

when the fruits of your labour
sink without a trace
and the hope of the morning
blows right back in your face
when the pressure is killing
and it’s more than you can bear
there’ll be diamonds on the water
and music in the air
there’ll be diamonds on the water
music in the air  

when you find no justice
in a world of hurt
for the poor and defenceless
trampled in dirt
there is fire on the mountain
let the mighty beware
there are diamonds on the water
music in the air
diamonds on the water
music in the air

  1. I actually liked this one better than the one last week. Thanks for sharing!

    And it truly wasn’t above and beyond since I scheduled everything to post at the right times. 🙂
