lyrics

grave-maker lay down your spade
come again some other day
i'd rather watch the colors fade a while
from pawn shop shades to balconies
i’ll paraphrase eternity
and all the evolutions of your smile
cause i’m still becoming
and the day’s just humming
though the feeling fades away
but the bells are chiming
in the heights of diamond
as i’m trying to find my way
and silently your secret’s scrawled
on paper cranes and bathroom walls
but no one’s ever dared figure you out
so you held me like a sinking stone
the one you wish you’d never thrown
but it’s too late it’s too late to dry me out
cause your touch still lingers
on my shaky fingers
though the feeling fades away
and the bells are chiming
in the heights of diamond
as i’m trying to find my way
it’s sundown on the western sea
and this one sinks in infamy
as i watch you watch me while i walk away
and it’s pale light on the patio
did they forget to let you know
that everyone needs someone to betray
my lodestar’s beaming
but i might be dreaming
as the feeling fades away
but the bells are chiming
in the heights of diamond
as i’m trying to find my way
