Diamonds, Roses I need Moses
To cross the sea of loneliness
Part this red river of pain.

Everywhere is somewhere ain't no where is near
Everybody's got somebody with their wine and their beer
But I'm just a tragic figure in the corner over here
With an empty apartment and a best friend who is queer
(Huh)
Every time I see him he smiles and tells me how well
He's walking' these miles but he never ever asks a single
Thing about me if I died he'd hear about it eventually
Diamonds.Roses I need Moses
To cross the sea of loneliness
Part this red river of pain
(Oh oh oh ohhh)
To cross the sea of loneliness
Part this red river of pain
(Oh oh oh)
To cross the sea of loneliness
Part this red river of pain
Lie lie lie
Lie lie lie
Lie lie lie
Lie lie lie
Lie lie lie
Lie lie lie
Lie lie lie
Lie lie lie
Lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie
Lie lie lie
Lie lie lie
Lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie
