All I am is the bones you made for me
So garishly clean
White as the horses, that carry me away
And all my demons, you said, come and go with a days
A mind's will to play
I grow old in my way.
Just like you do.

Oh there ain't no diamonds in the boredom
Oh there ain't no darkness that I fear
Oh there ain't no way to say I love you more, no
So be clear, just to be clear
So be clear, be clear.

All I am is the bones you made for me
Just driftwood for the sea
Heavy as the horses, that carry me away.
That carry me away.

Oh there ain't no diamonds in the boredom
Oh there ain't no darkness that I fear
Oh there ain't no way to say I love you more, no
So be clear, be clear
Oh there ain't no diamonds in the boredom
Oh oh oh ain't no darkness that I fear
Oh oh oh ain't no way to say I love you more, mama
So be clear, just to be clear
So be clear, be clear.

Oh there ain't no diamonds in the boredom
No there ain't no darkness that I fear
Oh there ain't no way to say I love you more
So be clear, be clear

    He is doing anything for this one person, he fears nothing and can't express his love anymore. She is not realising his love.

    Approve it again to see that it would be more correct than it was anytime before. Take your time to quiet... Recognise, that you still have the puissance to find yourself and maybe you will even find out that it is too calm,when you are alone, when you are without me... I do hope so.

    I've given you everything, done everything for you, and it still isn't enough for me. I love you more than i can express but it just isn't enough for me.
