Once there was a castle in a mountain
A couple kids, a comely garden
And a white knight too
Stout, true

Now where there were stables
There's a screen door
A quarter acre by the airport
And a dried up yard, no flowers

Say that you won't go away
Say you'll love me, say you'll stay
Or just take this ring
And buy up what you break

'Cause this is the life that we made
With rusted hinges, peeling paint
And I know it's not perfect
But I love it, and I find diamonds everyday

Mornings, this old house is like a palace
I pack our lunch and Lucy's glasses
And I let you sleep
as her bus leaves

Boxes and bags packed, you stand
It's just the little things that are breaking me down
And I'll call when I get settled
It's just the little things that are breaking me down
The upkeep of a fantasy no longer has a hold on me

So go if you must (If I made a promise)
Run away (I never said I wouldn't let you down)
But don't be here when I wake ('Cause I can't be your motivation)
And just take this ring (I got so much)
And buy up what you break (So much left to do)

If this is the life that we made (This is the life that you made now, it's not me)
With rusted hinges, peeling paint (Clamped with chains)
And I know it's not perfect (It once was about me)
And I know I'm not perfect (Then was about us)
But now it's about her (Tell Lucy goodbye, so sorry)

'Cause I find diamonds everyday
