"Diamond Rings 2007" as written by and John Mccauley....
Oh it takes my life away
To think of her as gone
Now I'm running down the maze
And I'm finding only war

Blowing down the flame
To catch the burning wind
Now I'm running out of steam
Now watch this man collapse

You said you wanted a better life
And you will tell me what you find
And then I'll stay the whole night through
And I'll turn from sad to blue
Yes I'm choking after you (?)
Yeah I'm choking after you

Wish you'd think of me
The way I think of you
Well I find it hard to breathe
Cause now I know the truth

So what good would fingers be
If it weren't for diamond rings?
Now I know you're leaving me
And I know that I'm no king

And you said you wanted a better life
And you will tell me oh what you find
And then I stay the whole night through
And I turn from sad to blue
Yeah I'm choking after you
Miss, I'm choking now, do you?

(Go ahead now, tell them all about it)

So what good would fingers be
If it weren't for diamond rings?
Now I know you're leaving me
And I know that I'm no king

    General Commenti don't feel like deer tick songs need to be analyzed. that said, to answer the question, 'what does this song mean to you," i would say it means some love should never be had. quite possibly that some love we have should never have happened but somehow that is the love that lasts forever, even if 'i'm no king.'

    General Comment'what good would fingers be, if it weren't for diamond rings?'

    sounds like a line about materialism.

    the chick left him because he's poor.

    General CommentGreat song, great band. Couple corrections though:

    "Now I’m running down the maze
    And I’m finding only walls"

    "Yes, I'm choking next to you" Makes more sense seeing as how he is laying next to her turning from sad to blue.

    idk i kinda thought it could mean what's the point of life if it weren't for love? but kingstons interpretation is probably right.

    General CommentI agree with exotic coconut's interpretation of uncatchable love. I feel as if his love is getting married to someone else.

    General CommentHe's definitely saying "I'm choking it to you, Miss I'm choking it to you." Its just a little bit of dirty humor. I mean come on, "I'll turn from sad to blue"?

    Go ahead now tell em all about it.

    So I also think that might explain the 'What good would fingers be if it weren't for diamond rings?" line. Pretty funny I think.

    General CommentOh it takes my life away
    To think of her as gone
    Now I’m running down the maze
    And I’m finding only WALLS

    Blowing down the flame
    CATCH THE BURNING WAX
    Now I’m running out of steam
    Now watch this man collapse

    And yes, he definitely says..."Miss, I'm choking it to you"... which I think is hilarious. I never caught that in all the years listening to this song until I read the comments.

    Love the guitar picking in this song.
