lyrics

It’s A Dangerous World

He was chromium steel, turning the earth under his wheels
The wind in his head, a fire was burning
She was waiting at home, and she was so all alone
She cries herself to sleep holding his memory
She knew he had to go and fight the fight
And stand up for the things he thought were right
In this dangerous world
They were Diamonds and Pearls
As his mom and dad just watched it on TV
Diamonds and Pearls

He’d write home every day, from so far away
She carried his picture in a locket
But day after day she felt him slipping away
And he died with her picture in his pocket
The was no port of refuge in this storm
Now every day she wished that he was home
In this dangerous world
They were Diamonds and Pearls
Now mom and dad just cry and watch TV
