Diamonds in the hillside
They're sparklin' for me
But upon a closer look
Those diamonds are all crooks
And they were just stealin' my heart
Stealin' my heart from you

Cherry blossoms blooming on a late afternoon
There's a melody I hear
But it still is quite unclear
A lazy eye swallows me whole
I'm standing on thin ice again

Then I changed for the world
And I wear it so well
Did I change for the worse?
Only time will tell

Rain drops on the windshields
They're catching my eyes
They were falling with such grace
Until they washed away
Leaving a dashing display
No single one looked the same

Then I changed for the world
And I wear it so well
Did I change for the worse?
Only time will tell

Diamonds and cherries
The critical mass
All had their hands involved
Diamonds and cherries
The critical mass
All took a hold of me

Then I changed for the world
And I wear it so well
Did I change for the worse?
Only time will tell (x2)

The piano don't sing like it did

    General Commentslightly Ben-Folds-ish sounding in the beginning.. interesting.

    As for the meaning: trying to stay true (to their music?) despite critics and people who try to change them with the promise of better things (profits)?? Dunno. Just an idea.
