Oh what the hell she says
I just can't win for losing
And she lays back down
Man there's so many times
I don't know what I'm doin'
Like I don't know now

By the light of the moon
She rubs her eyes
Says it's funny how the night
Can make you blind
I can just imagine
And I don't know what I'm supposed to do
But if she feels bad then I do too
So I let her be

And she says oooh
I can't take no more
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
Cuz I can't help her now
She's down in it
She tried her best and now she can't win it's
Hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling down

She sits down and stares into the distance
And it takes all night
And I know I could break her concentration
But it don't feel right

By the light of the moon
She rubs her eyes
Sits down on the bed and starts to cry
And there's something less about her
And I don't know what I'm supposed to do
So I sit down and I cry too
And don't let her see

And she says oooh
I can't take no more
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
Cuz I can't help her now
She's down in it
She tried her best and now she can't win it's
Hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling down

She shuts out the night
Tries to close her eyes
If she can find daylight
She'll be all right
She'll be all right
Just not tonight

And she says oooh
I can't take no more
Her tears like diamonds on the floor
And her diamonds bring me down
Cuz I can't help her now
She's down in it
She tried her best and now she can't win it's
Hard to see them on the ground
Her diamonds falling down

    Omg..I love this song!! The video to it is soo powerful. This, song is about his wife. She has like this disorder or something like that. And some days she is happy and cheery over days (as this song points out) she is despressed and she says she can't do anything. I dunno, but the first time I heard it was in tears it's so good. Im so getng the single I love Rob Thomas I thnk his solo career is as good as he is in matchbox 20.

    This song was written about his wife who has an autoimmune disease. It's about how she suffers through her disease and how he isn't able to do anything other than stand by her side and give her the support she needs.

    She just doesn't know what she wants and feels so sad and he just doesn't know what to do for her so he sits with her and cries
