Lyrics
I feel you,
There's no need to search
And I hear you,
From so far away

There's a town,
That's beyond this place
And there's a space,
'cause you're not here

Or could I be wrong?
Imagination strikes
I hear those uneven songs
Returning like ghosts in flight

Once we were lovers,
Once we were pure as friends
Once we were blood diamonds to the end

Do you hear when the world descends?
Let's make truth once again
Or could I be wrong?

Could there be other ways?
Or could I be wrong?
You can't untrain the heart

Once we were lovers
Once we were pure as friends
Once we were blood diamonds to the end

Yeah -,once we were lovers
Once we were true as friends
Once we were blood diamonds to the end
Diamonds to the end

Or could I be wrong?
Could there be other ways?
Or could I be wrong?
You can't untrain the heart

Once we were lovers
Once we were pure as friends
Once we were blood diamonds to the end



Yeah -,once we were lovers
Once we were true as friends
Once we were blood diamonds to the end
Diamonds to the end
