I want a diamond
I really do
I think that you
Should give me one

Then you can prove
Your love is true
And that the gift giving
Has just begun

I want that diamond
I want that thing
A tennis bra-
Celet or ring

It better shine
It better cut
I know it is expensive but

What other way
Can you make four months
Of your measly salary
Last a lifetime?

And what other thing
Have I ever axed you for?

The ability to read my mind
And I didn't get that either

I want that diamond
I want it so
All of my irratating friends will know

That I have worth
Not only that
But that you love me even though I'm fat

I want it and I want it now.
I'll say it once I don't care how
You get it you can rob a store
There just is nothing I want more

Than diamond jewelry for me
And I'll talk louder so you'll see
How very much this means to me

Even some little stud earrings
Gimme the goddamn diamond

    ahh I love to hear songs about how ridiculous people are about jewellery, just saw off some old tree and drill a hole, much nicer than those blood diamonds.

    To let you know, the song in the diamond commercials is Palladio. I played it in orchestra and it's easier than it sounds.

    Melora Creager used to be a jewelry designer. So this may be inspired partly by it.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
