Verse 1

CI met you at a Amparty Cor on a crowded Amstreet Ca silent singulaAmrity Fwhen glances chanced to Gmeet You looked into my glasses said you'd seen a ghost tried my best to make you smile as we calypsoed close I had been to Cleveland You had been to jail You seemed to be recovering but I felt a little pale Our house it was on seventeenth above the hardware store there we lived with seven cats all named for in seven dwarves

Chorus

Fbut like leaves and kGings Fall things must fCall Fno diamond ring is goGnna Fcut through it aCll

Verse 2

you were working as a graverobber you could do your job at night I was living hand-to-mouth just looking for a fight the reason why we parted it ain't that hard to find I was always busy and you never had the time well the reason why we parted it ain't that hard to see but I was never sure if I left you or you left me

Chorus

but like leaves and kings all things must fall no diamond ring is gonna cut through it all [harmonica]

Verse 3

and when it was all over I lost myself in work you got married to a lawyer painting murals in new york and though it seems a million miles ago since I saw the light the hours flowed by nervously like warships in the night Many times I've been corrupted but I've never been in love and I began to realize that that's just where I was so I packed up my possessions and caught an eastbound train met you in ohio sleeping in the rain

Chorus

but like leaves and kings all things must fall no diamond ring is gonna cut through it all

Verse 4

so now we're going back again to start where we began with rules and regulations but no real kinda plan I learned my lesson well with no mistakes at all once you find yourself true love you just keep holding on Flike leaves and kingGs Fall things must fCall Fno diamond ring is Ggonna Fcut through it aCll Fbut now out of tGhe dark Fout of the bGlue Flike leaves and kGings FI've fallen in love with yoCu
