If teardrops were diamonds
And only mine were used
They could pave every highway
Coast to coast
And not be close to through
If teardrops were diamonds
Cold blue.

If heartaches were rubies
Stacked up just like stones
There would be a mountain
Ten miles high
Built by mine alone
If heartaches were rubies
Mine alone.
You might begin to understand
The price that love has to pay
For being wrong

--- Instrumental ---

If sad thoughts were emeralds
And with not counting
In between
Just half the ones
I've had today
Could turn
The whole world green
If sad thoughts were emeralds
And the world turned green
You might just
Get the message that
There's more to loneliness
Than can be seen

If teardrops were diamonds
And only mine were used...
