The Lyrics

When you ask how I've been here without her,
I'd like to say I feel fine, and I do.
But I'm not over her, I think that's obvious,
And if I say I am, that's not quite true.

I gave her diamonds, she gave me stones.
She gave me hard times, then left me alone.
Just thinking about her leaves a chill in my bones,
I gave her diamonds, she gave me stones.

Now the face that I see in my mirror
Looks distraught and so bitter to me,
More and more I can see there's a danger
In my letting that selfish woman get to me.

I gave her diamonds, she gave me stones.
She gave me hard times, then left me alone.
Just thinking about her leaves a chill in my bones,
I gave her diamonds, she gave me stones.

I gave her diamonds, she gave me stones.
She gave me hard times, then left me alone.
Just thinking about her leaves a chill in my bones,
I gave her diamonds, she gave me stones.
2004 Michael W. McVey
