Lyrics

So it gets to seven and I think of nothing
Living in darkness
And the diamond lady
Well, she's not telling, I don't even know her name

It's amazing, times have changed
In days of old
But imagination'd leave you standing
Out in the could

Dancing city, now you're talking
But where's your soul
You've a thousand faces
I'll never know

There are complications and compensations
If you know the game
Agitated in Xenon nightly
I'll take you home again

Travel way downtown in search of nothing
But the sky at night
And the diamond lady
Well, she's not talking but that's alright

So I turn the pages and tell the story
From town to town
People tell me to be determined
Poor country boy

Too much luck means too much trouble
Much time alone
But arm in arm with my seaside diamond
I'll soon be home
