about

When things go wrong we need the comfort of a narrative –although it may not be the only narrative possible

lyrics

Ten years nearly, hell, love really can be blind
Looking back there were cracks but not so clearly at the time
One long night
His love for her just dies
He can’t work out what for
He looks for clues and finds
A diamond in a drawer

Needs must concede love’s a complicated game
Though it’s everything that makes life work
No two loves work the same
Nonetheless
A basic truth remains
To open every door
Risks getting hurt again
A diamond in a drawer
Open each door
Risk getting hurt some more
Hold back and lose it all for sure
Open each door
Risk getting hurt some more
Hold back and lose it all for sure

Just one year in when he bought her the ring
Out of all the things he gave her
I guess that meant everything
Just a ring
She took but never wore
Despite how much it cost
That wasn’t what was lost
A diamond in a drawer
A diamond in a drawer
