lyrics

You want to be a diamond tree you're crazy and you're wanted now.

You're written by that unsigned author.
You write me in and I'll sing that line.

You played the frog and I played the serpent.
We roamed the set after everyone would leave.
We took the wigs, we took the costumes, threw them in the fire
so no one knew the mess that we had been.
And no one knew the joy that it would bring. No one knew the joy that it would bring. The coroner would laugh as we would sing. The coroner would laugh as we would sing.

We play those parts inside unseen places.
You lift me up and I'll sing that line.

They called the cops. I stole a ruby, threw it in the fire. No one knew the damage it would bring. Sparkles drew the fire from deep within. Sparkles drew the fire from deep within. and no one knew the joy that it would bring. The coroner would laugh as we would sing.

You want to be a diamond tree you're crazy and you're wanted now.

I got lost inside a movie. We roamed the set through the cardboard cutout trees.I got lost inside a movie where everybody wins and no one loses faith in anything. No on loses faith in anything. No one thing. Not one thing. Not one king. No one loses faith in anything at all.

You lift me up and I'll make you a wager.

You want to be a diamond tree you're crazy and you're wanted now!

Oh don't tell me how to sing that line!

Don't tell me how to untie my laces. Don't tell me...!!

I'll lift you up and I'll sing that line.

You want to be a diamond tree, you're crazy and you're wanted now.

Slipping in and out of characters
