Lyrics

VERSE 1
Another strand of sparkle
Never thought that it'd get old
Dressed in Giorgio
Armani never felt so cold
Been a while since you said you loved me
Or took me by the hand
Empty Offerings of shiny things
Trying so hard to pretend

PRE-CHORUS
If these mirrors all shatter
Can we go back to what matters?
We're only fooling ourselves

CHORUS
You gave me everything - that I wanted
But I didn't get a thing - that I needed
Just DIAMONDS & DUST
DIAMONDS & DUST
This sounds hypocritical - so forgive me
But I'm growing cynical - of this daydream
Just DIAMONDS & DUST
Oh, just DIAMONDS & DUST

VERSE 2
Another late night breakdown
You roll your eyes, I fake a smile
Lookin' picture perfect
But haven't felt that in a while

BRIDGE
Let's trade it all away
Let's sell it off today
And buy a new start

Really really great song!!! Love the vocals...and great arrangement! Also good instrumentation...love the style of this song. Reminds me of Gless Glyne...Clean Bandit! Love it!! Great job, love to hear this one on the radio.....
