diamonds lyrics (feat. simon r. beckleman) – passenger

well i spoke to this man,
he said he’d been to the moon,
carved his name in the ground,
so the world spinning round
came back that afternoon

and i laughed at this man,
he said he’d been lost at sea,
heard the sirens call,
seen the pirates fall
to the monsters in the deep

i said i’d heard some tall tales,
some good stories in my time
so i asked him for proof,
and he showed me the truth
that was dancing in his eyes

well i could not believe this man,
said he was a millionaire
said i know i dress in rags
but i drive a vintage jag,
and have diamond chandeliers

i said i think i need a drink
and made my way outside
you know i’d swear this was a spoof,
if it wasn’t for the truth
that was dancing in his eyes

oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, yeah

when i came back in the room
the man had disappeared
he’d left a rock from the moon,
an eye patch and a diamond from a chandelier
