Death Cab For Cutie – A Diamond And A Tether lyrics
Pity, take pity on me.
Cause I'm not half the man that I should be.
Always turning to run,
From the people I should not be afraid of.

And darling, you should know
That I have fantasies about being alone.
It's like love is a lesson,
That I can't learn.
I make the same mistakes at each familiar turn.

I know you can't hold out forever
Waiting on a diamond and a tether
From a boy who won't swim
But who will dip his toe in
Just to keep you here with him.

I've got this habit I abhor.
When we go out I'm always watching the door.
Cause if there's someone I'm gonna see
Who could outdo the things you do to me.

And I know you can't hold out forever
Waiting on a diamond and a tether
From a boy who won't fly
But who will take to the skies if he thinks you are about to say goodbye.

Pity, take pity on me.
Cause I'm not half the man that I should be.
And I don't blame you,
You've had enough,
Of all these empty promises and countless bluffs.

Cause I know you can't hold out forever
Waiting on a diamond and a tether
From a boy who won't jump when he falls in love.
He just stands with his toes on the edge
And he waits for it do disappear again.
