Diamond Cutter (music and lyrics by Ian Revell)

Diamond cutter, diamond cutter.
Enter the room and that was all it took
I burn my eyes to get a closer look
Diamond cutter
What secrets do you hide?
A toxic bloom of a new colour
Rose dipped in the blood of all the fallen lovers
So I make my way down, move a little closer
Compelled to speak but still my tongue is tied
Out on this ledge without a place to hide
Diamond cutter, diamond cutter.
you walk the razor line edging closer to a truth so fine through the artifice that you wear so well close enough to speak but my moment slips away ...

What secrets do you hide
Well I'd like to know why
My head, my heart, my wrist, my mouth, my lungs
I’m primed to give them all to a ...
Diamond cutter, diamond cutter.
You whisper to my mind a truth unheard a thought divine like a sailor that’s just hit dry land I can’t help the way I’m falling - to the sand

What in the world has happened to me
Stepped out to the edge and you were all I could see
Show me the chink in the armour, the heart that can break
Before you take it away from me ...

Diamond cutter, diamond cutter, diamond cutter, diamond cutter!

Diamond cutter, diamond cutter.
Black box of my heart it has been compromised
Collect my thoughts
and I’m still paralyzed
Diamond cutter, who should I be this time?
You pushed my mind right through the strangest door
It won’t get closed again
So I follow you down, as my world caves in around me
Did I know that it would turn out this way?
tied to this rack without a card to play
Diamond cutter, diamond cutter.
have mercy on the soul of a tired man with no control I’ve been living on this edge for years one little push and the ground beneath me disappears

What in the world has happened to me
I dreamed of this moment and now it's reality
Show me the crack in the armour, the heart that can break
Before you take it away from me ...

Diamond cutter, diamond cutter, diamond cutter, diamond cutter!
