Words and Music - Nick Askew

Verse
Diamonds Diamond hearts will fail
Whist lesser ones they prevail
Get by on little money
I can't hold a job for long
But I keep on keep on trying
Till the flesh is off my bones, my bones

Verse
Diamond's say it all
Whilst my heart prepare to fall
Your soul can barely hear me,
Screaming out in pain for more
Time to have you in my arms
It is what I'm longing for
And you make me feel like

Chorus
One more kiss would be way too much
One more minute in my arms would be too much
My heart gets weak when I'm longing for your touch
Maybe diamonds would be strong enough to keep you in my arms tonight

Verse
Diamonds will see us trough
And I'm hopelessly fighting for you
I keep you through the hard times and the nights you feel alone
But I need a heart that's strong enough
Strong enough to break my own
And you make me feel like

Chorus
One more kiss would be way too much
One more minute in my arms would be too much
My heart gets weak when I'm longing for your touch
Maybe diamonds would be strong enough to keep you in my arms tonight

Verse
Open my eyes one by one
Getting kissed by morning sun
Turn over, get a kiss from you
Straighten my tie put on my shoes
You got coffee at the ready
As the minute hand goes one two three
Watching the world spin a thousand ways
oh I wish that I had time to say

Chorus
Ohh…..
that I will be the one one
To bring the morning sun
My love makes me promise this
And I would marry you
Again a time or two
My love makes me promise there's
Much to you

Verse
Next thing I know it's turning five
The sky has fell i'm taking flight
See the crimson sky turn into night
I'm alive,
You're standing right there in the doorway
Saying all I need is you're embrace
and it feels like eternity
before I can say

Chorus
Ohh…..
That I will be the one one
To bring the morning sun
My love makes me promise there's
And I would marry you
Again a time or two
My love makes me promise there's
And I would be the one to bring the morning sun
My love makes me promise there's
And I would marry you
Again a time or two
My love makes me promise there's
Much more, there's…..
Much to you

Verse
Starting life again am I
Working 9 - 5 and then we die
The only thing that gets me through

When I'm with that sweet old love of mine
You motivate my every bone
Cause I want to give you everything you want

Cause you give me hope for life
And you give me warmth in the night
Tell me something
