So it gets to seven
And I think of nothing
But living in darkness
And the diamond lady
Well, she's not telling
Don't even know her name

It's amazing
Times have changed
In days of old
But imagination'll leave you
Standing out in the cold

Dancing city
Now you're talking
But where's your soul?
You've a thousand faces
I'll never know

True to life
True to life

There are complications
And compensations
If you know the game
Agitated in xenon night
I'll take you home again

Travel way downtown
In search of nothing
But the sky at night
And the diamond lady
When she's not talking
It's alright

True to life
True to life
True to life

So I turn the pages
And tell the story
From town to town
People tell me
"Be determined
Poor country boy"

But too much luck
And too much trouble
Much time alone
But arm in arm
With my seaside diamond
I'll soon be home
