​Diamonds to Dust

This song is by Don Williams and appears on the album True Love (1990).

Love is a question that few understand
It runs like a river between a woman and a man
But it's course can get twisted, its bed can run dry
And a heart become desert in the wink of an eye.

Once there was loving, once there was trust
Once it was honest and open and just
Our love was a diamond that grew between us
But time can turn even diamonds to dust.

Diamond to dust, oh diamonds to dust
Time can turn even diamonds to dust.

--- Instrumental ---

Time is a teacher it's kind and it's cruel
It gives you the wisdom to see you're a fool
And it gives love and takes love, it hurts and it heals
And it never parts easy with the truth it reveals.

Diamond to dust, oh diamonds to dust
Time can turn even diamonds to dust.

Diamond to dust, oh diamonds to dust
Time can turn even diamonds to dust.
