Open the door and I step into the world
These strings keep pullin' my heart
Attached to those blue eyes and pearls
There must be somewhere I can still lay my head
Where you're something I long to sleep next to in the bed.

You said you'd say,
You said you'd say,
You said you'd be my hanging scales,
Erase all these changes.
You turned away,
You turned away,
So I replaced all our shiny gold with diamonds in the city.

Untie my shoes and I walk home to the road,
So far passing the pavement,
Surpassing containment.
And I realize now these nights,
They don't bring the joy.
It's something deeper inside,
The screaming heart of a boy.

So I kneeled and prayed,
I kneeled and prayed,
Repeating sins my face endured,
How can I keep the faith when
I've seen the rage,
I've seen the rage?
Viewed all the hate reciprocate the pureness of this place?

And they think I've become numb to the situations,
But I know when my verse is sung,
And in the end I'll be the only one.

You said you'd say,
You said you'd say,
You said you'd be my hanging scales,
Erase all these changes.
You turned away,
You turned away,
So I replaced all our shiny gold with diamonds in the city.

(Ohhh)

Diamonds in the city

(Ohh, ohhhh)

Diamonds in the City

(Hey, woahhh, ohhhhhh)

Diamonds in the city
