From a distance I could see you shine,
when diamonds get too deep they get hard to mine,
yours the face that always has the charm,
look out for eyes like mine they'll do you harm.

My velveteen my velveteen,
you come on so smooth now you've lost that sheen,
when velveteen spoke there was no compromise,
and when velveteen joked he'd kiss you with his eyes.

Now the climate changes for the worse,
I think, it's time right now your bubble burst,
with every sentence that you cast astray,
I hear those empty vessels call from miles away.

My velveteen my velveteen,
you come on so smooth now you've lost that sheen,
when velveteen spoke I could not sympathise
to those velvet tones and velvet lies.

For every sentence that you cast away,
I hear those empty vessels from miles away.

when velveteen spoke there was no compromise,
and when velveteen joked he'd kiss you with his eyes.
