"Diamond Dave" as written by Inara George and Gregory Allen Kurstin....
When I was a child,
You captured my devotion
I spent so many hours
Exploring mixed emotions

All of the ways you spoke to me
All of the things you provoked in me
I'll always love you

Diamond Dave
No one can hold a candle
Nothing else is quite the same
Pretty Dave
I'll always remember
I still carry such a flame

When you left the band
I couldn't understand it
But I've forgiven you
Now that you've recommitted

All of the time you spent away from me
All of the missed opportunity
I'll always love you

Diamond Dave
No one can hold a candle
Nothing else is quite the same
Pretty Dave
I'll always remember
I still carry such a flame

Come on, Dave
Show me what you got
I can take it

I'll always love you

Diamond Dave
No one can hold a candle
Nothing else is quite the same
Pretty Dave
I'll always remember
Diamond Dave
I'll always remember
Pretty Dave
I'll always remember
I still carry such a flame
