​Diamond Rings 2007

This song is by Deer Tick and appears on the album War Elephant (2007).

Oh it takes my life away
To think of her as gone
Now I'm running down the maze
And I'm finding only wall

Blowing down the flame
To catch the burning wax
Now I'm running out of steam
Now watch this man collapse

You said you wanted a better life
And you will tell me what you find
And then I'll stay the whole night through
And I'll turn from sad to blue
Yes I'm choking after you (?)
Yeah I'm choking after you

Wish you'd think of me
The way I think of you
Well I find it hard to breathe
Cause now I know the truth

So what good would fingers be
If it weren't for diamond rings?
Now I know you're leaving me
And I know that I'm no king

And you said you wanted a better life
And you will tell me oh what you find
And then I stay the whole night through
And I turn from sad to blue
Yeah I'm choking after you
Miss, I'm choking now, do you?

(Go ahead now, tell them all about it)

So what good would fingers be
If it weren't for diamond rings?
Now I know you're leaving me
And I know that I'm no king
