A Diamond And A Tether Lyrics
Pity, take pity on me
'Cause I'm not half the man that I should be
Always turning to run
From the people I should not be afraid of
And darling, you should know
That I have fantasies about being alone
It's like love is a lesson, that I can't learn
So I make the same mistakes at each familiar turn

I know you can't hold out forever
Waiting on a diamond and a tether
From a boy who won't swim
But who will dip his toe in
Just to keep you here with him

I've got this habit I abhor
When we go out I'm always watching the door
As if there's someone I'm gonna see
Who could outdo the things that you do to me

I know you can't hold out forever
Waiting on a diamond and a tether
From a boy who won't fly
But who will take to the sky
If he thinks that you're about to say goodbye

Pity, take pity on me
'Cause I'm not half the man that I should be
I don't blame you, you've had enough
Of all these empty promises and countless bluffs

I know you can't hold out forever
Waiting on a diamond and a tether
From a boy who won't jump
When he falls in love
He just stands with his toes on the edge
And he waits for it to disappear again
