Diamond Ring

about

« Diamond Ring » is a nostalgic ballad questioning our fascination for eternal love. « Diamond » means unbreakable in Greek, and when you think of it, it is a strange symbol... Nothing lasts, everything changes, and that's exciting. The sound mixes indie-pop and folk, mid-tempo, with a shining pentatonic melody and a 1960s flair : folk guitar, double-bass, big Gretsch drums, a clear old fender guitar and a stylophone.

lyrics

DIAMOND RING

Love is a dirty thing, see how hard we struggle
Like the river sliding mud
From the top of the mountain to the sea
We got so deep, see how low we can be
But oh! Our desire! It was such a beautiful thing
Oh! Our desire! Like the shine of a diamond ring
Love is a dirty thing, see how hard we struggle
Now we share all the darkness
Or it's just that it's harder to hide
Like the scars left by all our missing ones
But oh! Our desire, It was such a beautiful thing
Oh! Our desire, Like the shine of a diamond ring,
It promised to last for ever
I'm a coal miner
With my pick and my shovel I dig the ground
Looking for a sense of life
Where carbon turns to light
I wanted to see you closer
How you believed in unbreakable vows
But weight is bringing me down
Gravity is our only bond
But oh! Our desire, it was such a beautiful thing
Oh! Our desire, like the shine of a diamond ring,
Oh! Our desire, t was such a beautiful thing
Oh! Our desire, like the shine of a diamond ring
It was pure and born in the flames of hell's fire
