Looking back now I regret
You're a promise that I never kept
Waiting in my room in vain
Time winds back then back again

Outside the school gates we first met
In a basement near the park (diamonds in the dark)
We danced all night and then we kissed
Your smile like diamonds in the dark

It's a long way to fall
Where the words stray, no-one calls

We would have little children
We would be together forever (diamonds in the dark)
We would live on Delancey Street
Then you cut you hair and it ended there

It's a long way to fall
Where the words stray, no-one calls

Looking back now I regret
You're a promise that I never kept
Waiting in my room in vain
Time winds back then back again

Now I've nothing left to lose
I'm clinging to a cliff face, staring at your shoes
And tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me
Do you feel the same?
Or are we just waking to a day we can't
A day we can't change?

And now there's this no-mans land
Between you and me (diamonds in the dark)
But I still wander in between the sheets and streets
And other places we've been

It's a long way to fall
Where the words stray, no-one calls

Looking back now I regret
You're a promise that I never kept
Waiting in my room in vain
Time winds back and back again, and back again...

    General CommentNow I've nothing left to lose
    I'm clinging to a cliff face, staring at your shoes
    And tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me
    Do you feel the same?
    Or are we just waking to a day we can't
    A day we can't change?

    Made me cry!
