We're melting ruby hearts
A confusing trade
To burn the ore
And to shape a blade
And then to swing it low
Beginner's fate
To lose a skin
To just grow away

Like a rain, to help a river
But a river's so hard to please
But I've grown to see the diamonds
You've thrown in just for me

We spent so many nights
Just gathering stones
The silver tears
And old sapphire bones
And all the copper leaves
Then dreamt, now true
Look how they find their path
To cut right through

Like a rain, to help a river
But a river's so hard to please
But I've grown to see the diamonds
You've thrown in just for me

Look when your hopeless child will figure
There are moments when hope's not
Only real when flagging far down a road
And with an armful broken arrows
And no hand free for the bow
Your kid will lose a battle
But your ways will let him go

I lose my wish to drown
And aimless flee
And what you've thrown to lose
Is still right here with me.
