Diamonds And Rust

Diamonds And Rust: As Performed By Wanko Twist
                                       Lyrics Written By Rob Halford/Glen Tipton/K.K. Downing Of Judas Priest

Ill be damned, here comes your ghost again
But thats not unusual
Its just that the moon is full
And you decided to call

And here I sit, hand on the telephone
Hearing the voice Id known
A couple of light years ago
Headed straight for a fall

But we both know what memories can bring
They bring diamonds and rust
Yes we both know what memories can bring
They bring diamonds and rust

Now I see you standing with brown leaves all around and snow in your hair
Now were smiling out the window of the crummy hotel over washington square
Our breath comes in white clouds, mingles and hangs in the air
Speaking strictly for me we both couldve died then and there

Now youre telling me youre not nostalgic
Then give me another word for it
You were so good with words
And at keeping things vague

Cause I need some of that vagueness now
Its all come back too clearly, yes, I love you dearly
And if youre offering me diamonds and rust, Ive already paid

But we both know what memories can bring
They bring diamonds and rust
Yes we both know what memories can bring
They bring diamonds and rust

Diamonds, diamonds and rust
Diamonds, diamonds and rust
Diamonds, diamonds and rust
Diamonds, diamonds and rust

"All I Wanna Be Is A Wanko Yeah!!!
