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
