"Jewel" as written by and Jack Steadman....
Old dust, old dirt, they're mine and only mine
I'm just some mortal, you are so divine
You control the game without playing it right

Raise high in me what ones did sink below
All dark within now radiantly glows
Come on take me back all that time ago

Our love was just one of your discarded jewels
You think back to it's price and oh you feel a fool
But in that certain light, it looks so beautiful

    General CommentAwesome song!
    The first verse is:
    Old dust, old dirt, they're mine and only mine
    I'm just some MORTAL, you are so divine
    You control the game without playing it right

    General CommentThe song is rather straight forward. It's either a person telling their former lover what a terrible mistake they made for leaving/destroying their relationship, or a person kind of reminiscing on their own mistakes. It, however, seems to be rather bitter, playing upon the fact that nostalgia is often fonder than what reality held. The last line holds the key to the whole meaning of the song, methinks.

    General CommentThe last line of the song owns the meaning. It's a nostalgic look back upon a failed relationship (either the narrator is telling himself of his regrets, or urging that his lost lover should have her own. It does certainly address the fact that in hindsight, it was rare and beautiful. Too, that we tend to overlook the bad when looking back.
