Diamonds To Dust Lyrics

by Dan Fogelberg

Diamonds to Dust
Oh, Diamonds to Dust
Time can turn even
Diamonds to Dust

Love is a question
That few understand
It runs like a river
Between a woman and man
But its course can get twisted
And its bed can run dry
And our hearts become deserts
In the wink of an eye

Once there was love here
And 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

[Chorus:]
Diamonds to Dust
Oh, Diamonds to Dust
Time can turn even
Diamonds to Dust
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

[Chorus]
